***** Sara’s Kitchen, 2000 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens, FLorida 33408, (561) 540-2822.

First things first, Jeff Eats first told you guys about Sara’s Kitchen on 2/28/09- at that time, the terrific breakfast/lunch joint had literally been open -5 weeks in Lantana. Shortly thereafter, a dispute with its landlord resulted in Sara’s Kitchen closing and reopening in October, 2009 at its current address, 2000 PGA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens!

Long story short, until this morning when Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats did breakfast “there”- Jeff Eats hadn’t been back to Sara’s Kitchen since that 2/28/08 story first appeared!

Real simple…Sara’s Kitchen is one of the best breakfast/lunch joints Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats have eaten in here in Sunny Florida!

Trust Jeff Eats, delicious food, terrific service, huge portions, reasonable prices make Sara’s Kitchen a breakfast/lunch joint that you guys must-try!

Sara’s Kitchen is open Monday-Friday 7am-3pm, Saturday-Sunday 7am-2pm.

Got something absolutely terrific for you guys, SOHO Donut Company…a takeout joint that makes outrageously off the chart- delicious donuts and sandwiches. For you guys who insist on eating-“there”…a couple of tables inside/a couple of tables outside.

A recent “order” had Jeff Eats doing…glazed donut cheeseburger, philly cheese steak sub, grilled cheese & bacon donut, a mixed dozen of classic donuts, a mixed dozen of fancy donuts and like I said 1.231 seconds ago, outrageously off the chart- delicious donuts and sandwiches. For you wise guys out there, there were 2-other guys with Jeff Eats- so no, I didn’t eat everything all by my lonesome!

Jeff Eats loved SOHO Donuts Company!

The joint is open Tuesday-Friday 6:30am-6pm, Saturday 8am-6pm, Sunday 8am-2pm, closed Monday.

The Pompano Beach Amp is proud two present two platinum selling artists in one phenomenal show. Billy Ocean and special guest, Taylor Dayne, will be singing all their classic hits at The Amp on Friday, March 17th.

Billy Ocean has collected a pile of Gold and Platinum records across the world and hit the number one spot worldwide on pop charts including the USA, Australia, Germany, Holland, and the UK.

Born in Trinidad, Billy settled in London’s East End when just seven years old. The calypso crazy kid soon got turned on to soul singers like Otis Redding and Sam Cooke, as well as pop groups like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, leading him to spend much of his study time in the music room.

Billy got his first break when he signed to GTO records, for whom his second single was the Motown-ish “Love Really Hurts Without You,” which reached No. 2 in the UK charts and No. 12 in the US.

Two top twenty singles followed; “Love on Delivery” and “Stop Me,” then “Red Light Spells Danger” became a smash in both the UK and the US.

Billy changed record labels and his move to Jive Records provided instant success, with the million selling American number one single “Caribbean Queen” (for which Billy won a Grammy for best R&B Vocal), followed by “Loverboy” and “Suddenly,” which became the first of Billy’s killer ballads. More hits followed including “When the Going Gets Tough,” “They’ll be Sad Songs,” and “Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car.”

After a break to raise his family, Billy went back out on tour and this year releases his double CD, Here You Are, The Best of Billy Ocean, featuring new tracks along with his classic hits.

Taylor Dayne also racked up an impressive list of hits and will be singing all of her top songs including her number one singles “Tell It to My Heart,” “Love Will Lead You Back” and “Prove Your Love to Me.” In addition to her famous ballads, Taylor will be shaking things up with her classic dance songs including her Billboard Hot Dance hits including “Floor on Fire” and “Beautiful.”

Posted on June 7th, 2014
***** Applebee’s, 15058 Jog Road, Delray Beach 33433, (561) 865-8757.

Got a good story for you guys…

Last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple ate at the Applebee’s located at 15058 Jog Road, Delray Beach. I’m assuming that you guys know what “an” Applebee’s is…if not, American Style -national chain with a full liquor bar/tvs, tons of reasonably priced appetizers, salads, sandwiches, burgers, wings, entrees, desserts.

Anyway,

Prior to last night, the last time Jeff Eats had eaten in an Applebee’s was September 8, 1998. The reason that I remember that date, I was in an Applebee’s (1720 South Federal Highway, Delray Beach) and watched Mark McGuire hit homerun #62 breaking Roger Maris’ record. We’ll leave McGuire’s steroid story for another day.

Now nothing for nothing, back in 1998 Jeff Eats didn’t exist-it wasn’t until 2006 that I “decided” that you guys needed to know -what, where and how I ate. So other than the-homerun I really don’t remember the “actual” 1998 meal. In addition, for the life of me, I can’t figure out why 1998 was the last time I ate at Applebee’s.

To make a long story short,

Very dear friends, Norman and Lynne swear by this chain. In addition to an apartment in North Miami they have a home in Belmont, North Carolina and an apartment in New Paltz, New York.–over the past 25 years -their numerous road trips have literally had them in Applebee’s all over the place.

Last night the four of us ate in Applebee’s and I gotta tell you- the food, service and reasonable prices blew me away. No fooling here-the house salads, bbq grilled wings, grilled chicken wontons/tacos, cheeseburger sliders, bbq ribs, grilled sirloin steak, french fries, onion rings, mashed potatoes, mozzarella sticks, white brownie/vanilla ice cream, pub pretzels with caramel sauce were all delicious.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, no ifs ands or buts- last night’s “American Style” meal was one of the best I’ve had in years. To be perfectly honest with you, the food ran circles around most of the stuff served in South Florida’s sports bars–Not to start a pissing match or nothing, but chains like The Cheesecake Factory, Chili’s, Friday’s, J Alexander’s got nothing on Applebee’s.

On service-when we walked in, we were actually greeted by a pleasant- energetic hostess. Sammie our waitress knew the menu-cold making some great recommendations and made sure our glasses were never empty. One other thing, Jeff Eats notices things and I gotta tell you that George (GM) was all over the joint- visiting tables, chatting with customers, helping/bussing tables-doing what a GM is suppose to do, that being staying on top of his restaurant. Trust Jeff Eats on this, I’ve seen many a GM in action (or shall I say inaction!) and this guy was good-real good…The restaurant was real-busy, yet the service/food were all “handled” as they were suppose to be.

On the price front-real reasonable…check www.applebees.com for menu/prices/locations.
I will tell you, that Applebee’s gives you a ton of food for the money. When you’re on Applebee’s website checkout its- 2 eat for $20 or $25 deals.

Like I said 37 seconds ago, Applebee’s is a national chain. This “story” is about the Delray Beach Jog Road restaurant-that said, there are plenty of Florida locations for you to eat at.

Applebee’s is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm.

In closing, Norman and Lynne you were so right…Jeff Eats should have gotten “back” sooner.

Applebee’s is dynamite!

Aside from performing for presidents and queens, appearing on every major late-night show of the last 30 years (including Jimmy Fallon’s last June) and hosting a bunch of prestigious award shows, Elayne Boosler holds the distinction of being the first female stand-up ever to host her own cable comedy special, Showtime’s Party of One. Since that glass ceiling-shattering event, she’s covered all the show-biz bases, including providing color commentary for a variety of pro sports and political chat fests. Recently, she’s been a regular HuffPo contributor and is the active founder of the animal-rescue organization Tails of Joy. But instead of resting on her well-earned laurels, Boosler is back out on the road and coming to the Boca Black Box with a new batch of material, sharing her always witty and relatable take on life in the ’10s.

Pop, Rock & Doo Wopp Live! presents The Duprees (Curtis Peterson Auditorium- Lecanto)

Posted on February 17th, 2017 · Music/Events/Other · 3 Comments »

* Pop, Rock & Doo Wop Live! presents The Duprees.

If you look up the word “smooth” in Webster’s Dictionary, Jeff Eats will bet you a buck that you’ll find a picture of the legendary 50’s-60’s pop singing group The Duprees!

If you haven’t yet seen them, go see them! Nobody and I mean nobody does it better!

from poprockdoowopp.com

2012 marked the 50th anniversary of “You Belong to Me” becoming a national hit.
The legend and the legacy of the Duprees continue today…

The Duprees are known the world over for their romantic interpretations of the most beautiful love songs ever written. They have made a career out of giving new life to old hits. Starting out in the early sixties, in Jersey City, New Jersey, The Duprees were discovered by George Paxton of Coed Records and former big band leader. Impressed with their smooth vocal quality, he had them record Jo Stafford’s 1950’s ballad “You Belong To Me” with Big Band arrangements. It was an instant national hit and the group’s first Million Seller. The unmistakable sound was born and the hits kept coming:

1962 You Belong To Me · 1962 My Own True Love · 1963 Gone With The Wind · 1963 Take Me As I Am · 1963 Why Don’t You Believe Me · 1963 Have You Heard · 1963 Love Eyes · 1963 It’s No Sin · 1963 The Sand And The Sea · 1964 It Isn’t Fair · 1966 Let Them Talk · 1966 Exodus
