Direct From Off Broadway

Hilarious Account of Comic Jackie Mason’s 10 Year Affair with a Playwright/Bellydancer as seen through the Eyes of Their Lovechild – Sheba Mason. Starring Ian Wehrle as Jackie Mason, Trevor Crane as Schlepalong, and Cast of 7. (thejackiemasonmusical.com)

The Boca Black Box in Boca Raton shines the spotlight on Sheba Mason — the self-proclaimed lovechild of comedian Jackie Mason — as she stars in The Jackie Mason Musical: Both Sides of a Famous Love Affair. This comedic chronicle looks at the decade-long tryst between the comedy icon and Sheba’s mother, playwright Ginger Reiter. It all begins at a deli in Miami in 1977, where 46-year-old Jackie spots twenty-something Ginger (played by Sheba). Soon, Jackie’s wooing her each winter, whenever he’s in South Florida churning up laughs with the South Beach set. The trouble is, Jackie is also wooing Trixie, a gorgeous young Latina, and Rosa, a senior citizen with attitude, a fact that sends Ginger into romantic distress. After 10 years, she becomes pregnant, Jackie denies his paternity, while still yearning to be with her, and a complicated relationship begins. Watch as original songs like Ode to the Early Bird Special” and “I Never Met This Yenta” pepper Sheba’s major daddy issues.

***** Outside The Box Sandwich Co.

Got a real food food truck for you guys…Outside The Box Sandwich Co which “serves” Dade, Broward, Palm Beach counties.

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats- Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats love food truck events…the way we see it- a smorgasbord of stuff to chose from! For sure, the quantity and quality of the trucks involved, make the game, but trust Jeff Eats on this, we’ve never “not found what to eat.”

Long story short, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats recently “did” a food truck event in Parkland’s Pinetrails Park and came across Outside The Box Sandwich Co- which we had never “seen” before, or maybe we had, but didn’t remember it, so on and so forth!

image

Anyway, I gotta tell you that Outside The Box Sandwich Co makes some pretty awesome salads, sandwiches, paninis and wraps. While “there” Jeff Eats did a grilled cheese & bacon-white toast sandwich ($7.50) and Mrs. Jeff Eats did a chicken pesto-ciabatta bread panini ($9.50)…Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats also took home, a chicken caesar wrap ($9) and a mozzarella caprese salad (8.50) and as I said a few seconds ago, the food was absolutely awesome!

image

To wrap (pun intended) this one up for you guys, you now know about a really good food truck- that’s in the salad, panini, sandwhich, wrap business.

“The Dark Star Orchestra re-creates Grateful Dead shows with a flashback-inducing meticulousness.” – The New Yorker

Performing to critical acclaim worldwide for nearly 15 years and over 2000 shows, Dark Star Orchestra continues the Grateful Dead concert experience. Their shows are built off the Dead’s extensive catalog and the talent of these 7 fine musicians. On any given night the band will perform a show based on a set list from the Grateful Dead’s 30 years of extensive touring or use their catalog to program a unique set list for the show. This allows fans both young and old to share in the experience. By recreating set lists from the past, and by developing their own sets of Dead songs, Dark Star Orchestra offers a continually evolving artistic outlet within this musical canon. Honoring both the band and the fans, Dark Star Orchestra’s members seek out the unique style and sound of each era while simultaneously offering their own informed improvisations.

Dark Star Orchestra offers much more than the sound of the Grateful Dead, they truly encapsulate the energy and the experience. It’s about a sense of familiarity. It’s about a feeling that grabs listeners and takes over. It’s about that contagious energy… in short, it’s about the complete experience and consistent quality show that the fan receives when attending a Dark Star Orchestra show.

Dark Star Orchestra has performed throughout the United States and Europe. They continue to grow their fan base by playing at larger venues for two and even three night stands as well as performing at major music festivals including Bonnaroo, All Good Festival, Gathering of the Vibes, Mountain Jam, Summer Camp, Wakarusa and 10,000 Lakes. In addition, Dark Star Orchestra hosts its own annual gathering, Dark Star Jubilee, where they headline three nights and are joined by a mix of established and up and coming national touring acts.

Fans and critics haven’t been the only people caught up in the spirit of a Dark Star show. The band has featured guest performances from five original Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann, Donna Jean Godchaux-MacKay, Vince Welnick, Tom Constanten and even toured with longtime Dead soundman, Dan Healy. Other notable guests have included Mike Gordon and Jon Fishman of Phish, Keller Williams, Warren Haynes, Steve Kimock, Peter Rowan, Ramblin’ Jack Elliot and many more. Visit their website- darkstarorchestra.net.

Latest Review: July 17, 2008

Long before burger joints like Shake Shack, BurgerFi, Five Guys even existed, Char-Hut (which opened in 1976) was cooking-up outrageously delicious char-grilled burgers/hot dogs/chicken, French fries, onion rings down here in South Florida! The chain currently has 5 locations, Oakland Park, Coral Springs, Davie, Tamarac, Pembroke Pines.

If you haven’t yet been to a Char-Hut…Go! Jeff Eats is kinda thinking you’ll love its stuff!

By the way, Char-Hut’s 1/2 lb. Big Bite Bacon Cheese Char-Burger ain’t no slouch either!

Char-Hut is a  South Florida fast-food “burger” chain…that currently has 4 locations, Davie, Sunrise, Tamarac and Pembroke Pines. The food is absolutely incredible…burgers, hot dogs, pork, chicken, sausage, tuna, french fries, onion rings…the chain has a cult-like following…Over the years, I have eaten in every one of Char-Hut’s joints and not one of them is within 20 miles of my home.  Check Char Hut’s website  www.char-hut.com for menu/pricing/details. Just so you know, Char Hut has all kinds of “meal combination specials” and its prices are no more expensive than the big fast food chains.

Char-Hut does lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Guranteed, after you eat at Char-Hut, you will be a member of the CULT.

* The Mersey Beatles.

Jeff Eats is hearing that The Mersey Beatles are amazingly good!

For our purposes, The Mersey Beatles’ USA Tour 2016- has 8 Florida dates…Delray Beach, Miramar, Fort Myers, Gainsville, Tampa, Jacksonville, Panama City. Tallahassee.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna try and catch the Wednesday, February 17th (7:30pm) Crest Theatre (Delray Beach) show! While I’m on the “subject” of theaters (or is it theatres?)- Crest Theatre, terrific sound/lighting and every seat works!

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, The Mersey Beatles’ Liverpudlian accents (as per the band’s audio/video at themerseybeatles.com) add an authenticity to the “act” that most Beatles’ tribute bands sorely lack! As a point of reference, a number of years ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats saw The Pete Best Band (for you guys who don’t know-Pete was the drummer who Ringo replaced) and the band made-up of Liverpool born players- had a very authentic Beatles’ “sound” as well!

Final thoughts, looking at The Mersey Bealtes’ picture…Jeff Eats is kinda thinking that it’s real easy to figure out who plays John, Paul, George and Ringo!- and it could really be cool meeting and chatting with John’s sister, Julia Baird!

For tickets/info- themerseybeatles.com.

Meet JOHN LENNON’S SISTER Julia Baird and The Mersey Beatles, not your ordinary Beatles tribute band! This ALL LIVERPOOL BORN Beatles tribute band was formerly the resident band for a decade at the world famous CAVERN CLUB, where the Beatles got their start.
They have played 20 countries, selling out shows worldwide….but never on U.S. soil! It’s been 50 years since the Beatles’ U.S. Invasion – and now 4 new lads from Liverpool are making their U.S. Debut!

John Lennon’s sister, Julia Baird, will be in attendance and signing copies of her book “Imagine This: Growing Up with My Brother John Lennon” at the general merchandise table before, during, and after the show. Don’t miss the chance to meet this wonderful philanthropist, author, teacher, Cavern Club Director and John Lennon’s sister!
