Kingpins Pizza & Wings (Fort Lauderdale)

***** Kingpins Pizza & Wings, 1517 Northeast 26th Street, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33305, (954) 667-7166.


Real simple story...

Kingpins Pizza & Wings is the "snack bar" located in Manor Lanes Bowling- order at the counter/pickup at the counter, eat while bowling or at the handful of tables "in" the snack bar. For you inquisitive souls out there, Manor Lanes has been around since 1958-has 20 lanes-and also has a separate Sports Den Pub in its facility.


Now- for the believe it or not part of the story, Kingpins’ food is absolute dynamite!

A recent “outing” had Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple doing a 16″ cheese/pepperoni pizza ($12.95), 10 piece grilled wings (teriyaki and sweet & sour- $8.95), meatball parmesan sub (8.95), grilled chicken salad ($8.95) and I gotta tell you everything killed!

Let me close this one out by telling you- it’s finding the Kingpins of this world- that make Jeff Eats’ day!

I absolutely loved Kingpins’ food!


Finally- to Kingpins’ owner(s)…

Poppa’s BBQ (Clearwater)

Posted on May 28th, 2015 · American BBQ Clearwater Fast Food · 2 Comments »


***** Poppa’s BBQ, 4890 122nd Avenue North, Clearwater, Florida 33762, (727) 954-8871.

Got something off the chart good- for you guys…Poppa’s BBQ in Clearwater.

Real simple concept going on here…order at/pickup at the counter-smoked bbq joint- something like a dozen 4-top tables inside, handful of benches outside.

If you’re looking for “frills”…wrong joint!

A recent lunch outing had Jeff Eats “trying”- 1/2 rack of Memphis style dry rubbed baby back ribs ($10.49), pulled pork sandwich (comes with 2-sides and a drink- $5.99), chicken plate (smoked chicken breast, 2 sides, bun-$6.29) and I gotta tell you, everything blew me away. The food was absolute dynamite.

Just so we are straight with each other, Poppa’s menu is kinda “limited” but I’m thinking that there is enough stuff on it- so nobody in your party is gonna starve or nothing!

Let me wrap this up for you, Poppa’s BBQ is an absolute homerun…

Kaleidoscope (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek- Coconut Creek)

* Kaleidoscope.

Like Motown party bands? Then you will love Kaleidoscope.

Go see them…no cover-no nothing- Legends Lounge!

Only problem Jeff Eats got with this band, is its name…Real fast-spell ______________ for me!



Sinatra Sintennial Show (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek- Coconut Creek)

* Sinatra Sintennial Show.

Like Sinatra!

Then you gotta go see the- Sinatra Sintennial Show at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek.

Last week-(May 22nd & May 23rd) the Sinatra Sintennial Show played to SRO crowds at the 350-seat Seminole Hard Rock Paradise Live Theatre in Hollywood…

The “Show” is now booked for Father’s Day-Sunday, June 21st at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek’s The Pavilion 1,160 seat showroom.

Just so you know, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats caught last Saturday Night’s show- and it was terrific…this guy Jeff Grainger “got” Sinatra down-real good!

Like I said 2 seconds ago, if you like Sinatra, you gotta go see the Sinatra Sintennial Show- a 90 minute non-stop musical tribute celebrating -Ol’ Blue Eyes’ 100th Birthday!

Tickets just went on sale at

Just a final thought for you guys thinking Father’s Day Present…every seat at The Pavilion “works”…so just maybe you “buy” dad and hopefully mom… shall-we-say inexpensive tickets and spend the rest of your cash feeding them at one of the Casino’s restaurants!


Celebrating 100 years of the greatest entertainer ever born, Jeff Grainger and the Hoboken 11 bring you a show of all the greatest hits and leave you feeling like you saw the reincarnation of the Chairman of the Board.
The Hoboken 11 is a swinging eleven piece big band that has been performing worldwide for 20 plus years. With a large repertoire of classic standards to salsa and merengue, this band plays it all. Take a trip back in time and relive the days when Ol’ Blue Eyes swooned the hearts of the bobbysoxers. Close your eyes and you will think you’re hearing The Voice himself. A show you will never forget and a tribute to the voice that will live continue his legacy.


Smokey Robinson (Hard Rock Live- Hollywood)

Posted on May 27th, 2015 · Hollywood Music/Events/Other · 3 Comments »

* Smokey Robinson.

Real simple…Smokey Robinson is one of the greatest singers-songwriters of all time!

If you haven’t seen Smokey-live in concert…GO!!



Lisa Lampanelli (Hard Rock Live- Hollywood)

* Lisa Lampanelli.

The folks who run the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood must think that “money grows on trees.”

At the bear minimum- the below “deal” is gonna run close- to 800 bucks.


Jeff Eats doesn’t have to break out a calculator to know- that this “deal” is a non-starter- but I will…2- 200 Level tickets run $120, add that to your $150 food credit and you got your hotel room costing you something like $530!

Who put this package together- P.T. Barnum?

Got your heart set on seeing Lisa?

Be smart…
1. buy your own tickets
2. eat in any old restaurant you’d like
3. let Uber drive you (it’s also ok-to drive yourself)
4. sleep in your own bed
