* Doo Wop Mania.

Jeff Eats just picked-up 2-tickets…

Just so you guys know, before the show- Jeff Ears and Mrs. Jeff Eats are probably gonna catch a couple of slices at Pasquale & Son’s Pizza Company which is something like 5 minutes from the theater!


Posted on February 5th, 2010

***** Pasquale & Son’s Pizza Company, 5609 Coral Ridge Drive, Coral Springs, Florida 33076 (954) 510-0703.

Pasquale & Son’s is a “red sauce” Italian “order-at the counter/pickup-at-the-counter” joint. It is a very modern looking restaurant, with flat screen tvs with plenty of table and booth seating.

Before we go any further, the same guys who own Pasquale & Son’s have another joint, Pasquale’s Pizza & Subs, 10337, Royal Palm Boulevard, Coral Springs, Florida 33065 (954) 341-0707…same concept–menu–prices–hours–website.

Pasquale & Son’s is my kind of joint. Take a look at its website www.pasqualeandsons.com for menu/prices/photos—and you’ll get some idea of what I am yapping about. Straight-up…real casual, good stuff, reasonable prices.

The other night I did—chicken parm sub ($7.95), penne ala vodka ($12.95-comes with 4 garlic rolls and side salad), large plain pizza ($15.95), sicilian pizza ($18.95), calzone ($8.50 mozzarella & ricotta), stromboli ($8.50 mozzarella-pepperoni-sausage-peppers-onion) and I gotta tell you, the food is right on the money. Like I told you before, you are your “own” waiter/waitress (got to be politically correct here)…this is one-easy going-casual joint. I have to single that stromboli out for- special kudos, sorry- I didn’t order a large one for $18.50, it was really that good.

Pasquale & Son’s is open Sunday-Thursday 10am-11pm, Friday-Saturday 10am-midnight.

Pizza Bruno (Orlando)

Posted on March 23rd, 2017 · Italian Orlando Pizza · 2 Comments »

***** Pizza Bruno, 3990 Curry Ford Road, Orlando, Florida 32806, (407) 440-3894.

Got a really-really good joint for you guys, Pizza Bruno in Orlando.

Rather than writing a “War & Peace”- piece on Pizza Bruno, let’s just say that two of Jeff Eats’ favorite Italian “dishes” are- pizza and garlic knots. Give me knots, pizza and endless Coke refills and Jeff Eats is a big time happy camper! With that in mind- Pizza Bruno makes off the chart delicious garlic knots and wood-fired pizzas!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats recently did a-Pizza Bruno dinner…the joint’s garlic knots and pizza were joined by a house salad and an order of meatballs- and I gotta tell you guys, the two additions absolutely killed! Just so you guys know, Pizza Bruno’s menu is kinda limited, handful of appetizers/salads/desserts, garlic knots, loads of pizzas, but Jeff Eats is thinking that you’ll definitely find what to eat!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats really-really enjoyed Pizza Bruno!

The joint is open Monday-Thursday 5pm-10pm, Friday 5pm-10:30pm, Saturday 11am-10:30pm, Sunday 11am-10pm.

Amp and AEG Live Present- Present Blues Legend Buddy Guy With Very Special Guests Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd & Barry Goldberg as The Rides.

Concert date: Thursday, 4/6/2017, 8pm

PRESALE: 9/21/16 (4pm) to 9/22/16 (10pm)- Use Code: guitar

Tickets: $39.50 to $99.50, Ticketmaster

Tickets via Ticketmaster.com
More info www.theamppompano.org or CALL 954-519-5500 THIS IS THE ONLY # for The AMP, other numbers are incorrect.

The Pompano Beach Amp and AEG Live are proud to present the legendary Buddy Guy. The 80 year old singer/guitarist is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a major influence on rock titans like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and Stevie Ray Vaughan, a pioneer of Chicago’s fabled West Side sound, and a living link to the city’s halcyon days of electric blues.

Adding to the excitement will be Guy’s very special guests Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg as The Rides. Two bands, one stage, two full sets for one sizzling night!

Buddy Guy’s fans know his list of accolades could fill pages, but here are a few highlights: 7 GRAMMY Awards, a 2015 Lifetime Achievement GRAMMY Award, 34 Blues Music Awards (the most any artist has received), The Billboard Magazine Century Award for distinguished artistic achievement, a Kennedy Center Honor, and the Presidential National Medal of Arts. In addition, Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him #23 in its “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.”

Still influencing the musical landscape, Buddy Guy released his brand new studio album “Born To Play Guitar” on July 31, 2015 via Silvertone/RCA Records, which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart. This was a follow-up to his 2013 first-ever double disc release, “Rhythm & Blues,” which also debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Blues Albums chart.

Though Buddy Guy will forever be associated with Chicago, his story actually begins in Louisiana. One of five children, he was born in 1936 to a sharecropper’s family and raised on a plantation near the small town of Lettsworth, located some 140 miles northwest of New Orleans. Buddy was just seven years old when he fashioned his first makeshift “guitar”—a two-string contraption attached to a piece of wood and secured with his mother’s hairpins.

In 1957, he took his guitar to Chicago, where he would permanently alter the direction of the instrument, first on numerous sessions for Chess Records playing alongside Howlin’ Wolf, Muddy Waters, and the rest of the label’s legendary roster, and then on recordings of his own. His incendiary style left its mark on guitarists from Jimmy Page to John Mayer. “He was for me what Elvis was probably like for other people,” said Eric Clapton at Guy’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in 2005. “My course was set, and he was my pilot.”

Seven years later, July 2012 proved to be one of Buddy Guy’s most remarkable years ever. He was awarded the 2012 Kennedy Center Honor for his lifetime contribution to American culture; earlier in the year, at a performance at the White House, he even persuaded President Obama to join him on a chorus of “Sweet Home Chicago.” Also in 2012, he published his long-awaited memoir, When I Left Home.

Guy’s very special guests will be blues super group The Rides, whose recent album charted # 1 on The Billboard Blues charts. The group consists of Stephen Stills (of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young), multi-award winner Kenny Wayne Shepherd, who holds the record for the longest running album on the Billboard Blues chart and Barry Goldberg, who has played alongside everyone from Muddy Waters to Bob Dylan.

Letting loose with spot-on renditions of classic tunes from artists like Hall & Oates, Michael McDonald, Steely Dan and plenty of other bands you may’ve listened to during make-out sessions in your parents’ basement, Yacht Rock Revue sails through the greatest hits of the ’70s AM radio era, performing them with the same passion as they would their own originals.
