Could Leaving a Dog Bowl Outside Your House Keep Burglars Away?

Spring is on its way, and we’re all ready to get away and book that dream vacation.

Before you go, however, there is one thing you should know about keeping your home safe while you’re away.

Former CIA officer Jason Hanson says that homeowners often leave their front porch light on when they go on vacation, thinking they can trick criminals into believing they’re home. This is a mistake.

What you should do instead is buy a large dog bowl and place this by your back door. Criminals are searching for the easiest target — they’ll go for the home next door that doesn’t have a big dog.

***** Mundi’s Italian Restaurant.

Want a real good/reasonably priced/mom & pop/red sauce Italian joint? Then -go eat at Mundi’s Italian Restaurant in Dania Beach.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about Mundi’s on 4/22/14 (that tale is reprinted down below) and “my bad”- I hadn’t been back until last night…and- the fried calamari, eggplant parmigiana, veal marsala, sausage and peppers were right on the money delicious!

This joint is an absolute must try.

Posted on April 22nd, 2014 · Dania Beach Italian

**** Mundi’s Italian Restaurant, 330 East Dania Beach Boulevard, Dania Beach, Florida 33004, (954) 927-1127.

Got a real good “mom & pop” red sauce-Italian joint for you…Mundi’s Italian Restaurant in Dania Beach.

If pizza is your game–Mundi’s ain’t for you…no pizza.

I’m thinking maybe 12 tables.

A recent dinner had Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple doing…fried calamari, penne ala vodka, spaghetti with meatballs, veal parmigiana, zuppa di pesce, shrimp scampi and I gotta tell you–we all thought that Mundi’s food was delicious. Now no fooling here…Mundi’s stuff was right up there with some of the best Italian food that Jeff Eats has had in South Florida.

Let me add a drop more color…the husband and wife who own Mundi’s seemed to be all over the joint… greeting/meeting/serving/cooking/cleaning and God only knows what else! Talk about giving 1000 percent.

Real simple call–delicious food, large portions, real pleasant service, reasonable prices…makes Mundi’s a huge winner.

Just a quick thought…I got friends who tell me -that this restaurant or that restaurant was like eating in someone’s home. I don’t know about you, but I’ve eaten in people’s homes where the home cooked food was disgusting. As a kid, I had a friend named Jimmy Esposito-whose mother made nightmarishly bad meat lasagna-but it was home-cooked! I also had a friend named William Chen whose mother made fabulous black & white cookies-but her wonton soup tasted like dirty dish water-go figure!

Anyway…

You can check Mundi’s menu/prices at www.mundis-italian-restaurant.com.

To wrap this thing up…if Wil & Joyce Imondo (they are the mom & pop and husband & wife in this story) ask you over to their house for dinner-GO!

Mundi’s Italian Restaurant is open Tuesday-Sunday 5pm-10pm, closed on Monday.

Just Kids from the Bronx: Telling It the Way It Was: An Oral History

Posted on March 26th, 2015 · Music/Events/Other · 3 Comments »

* Just Kids from the Bronx: Telling It the Way It Was: An Oral History.

Great read…even if you didn’t grow up in THE BRONX!

Jeff Eats caught a hard-copy (which came out 3/3/15) on Amazon for 20 bucks.

njnj
Amazon Book Review:
A touching and provocative collection of memories that evoke the history of one of America’s most influential boroughs-the Bronx-through some of its many success stories

The vivid oral histories in Arlene Alda’s Just Kids from the Bronx reveal what it was like to grow up in the place that bred the influencers in just about every field of endeavor today. The Bronx is where Michael Kay, the New York Yankees’ play-by-play broadcaster, first experienced baseball, where J. Crew’s CEO Millard (Mickey) Drexler found his ambition, where Neil deGrasse Tyson and Dava Sobel fell in love with science early on and where music-making inspired hip hop’s Grandmaster Melle Mel to change the world of music forever.

The parks, the pick-up games, the tough and tender mothers, the politics, the gangs, the food-for people who grew up in the Bronx, childhood recollections are fresh. Arlene Alda’s own Bronx memories were a jumping-off point from which to reminisce with a nun, a police officer, an urban planner, and with Al Pacino, Mary Higgins Clark, Carl Reiner, Colin Powell, Maira Kalman, Bobby Bonilla, and many other leading artists, athletes, scientists and entrepreneurs-experiences spanning six decades of Bronx living. Alda then arranged these pieces of the past, from looking for violets along the banks of the Bronx River to the wake-up calls from teachers who recognized potential, into one great collective story, a film-like portrait of the Bronx from the early twentieth century until today

Mr. Nice Guy Band (Meatball Room- Boca Raton)

meatball room

* Mr. Nice Guy Band.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about this superb Classic Rock band on 6/27/12 (that tale is down below).

Free show, but you know and Jeff Eats knows that Meatball Room wants you to eat and drink on its out-door patio -while the band is-on! So just maybe-if you go, you should go for some cash!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats already-got plans, but we’re gonna try and catch the band’s last set!

Posted on June 27th, 2012 · Music/Events/Other
***** Mr. Nice Guy *****

Recently saw “Mr. Nice Guy” an absolutely dynamite classic rock band (1960s-1970s-1980s) at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood.

Speaking of dynamite, comedian- Jimmy J.J. Walker of tv’s 1970’s “Good Time” fame, just released a dynamite “tell-all” book, “DY-NO-MITE, GOOD TIMES, BAD TIMES, OUR TIMES”—that I highly recommend that tv afficianados catch. But I digress…

Trust me on this, Mr. Nice Guy “plays” some of the best Beatles, Santana, Eagles, Joe Cocker, Zeppelin and Stones covers that you will hear.

Mr. Nice Guy often reffered to as “MNG” is a local South Florida sextet having formed in 2002. If the group’s recent Hard Rock appearance is any indication-it has an enormous fan base.

At this stage of the story you can check audio/video/info/schedule at www.mngband.com.

The really beautiful thing about Mr. Nice Guy…in addition to a steady twice a month gig at the Hard Rock, you can catch the group at various South Florida clubs, restaurants, casinos…usually “sans” a cover charge.

If you enjoy this type of music, do yourself a favor and catch Mr. Nice Guy in action.
