Formerly known as the ABBA GIRLZ This New York City based ABBA Tribute Band features beautiful harmonies, elaborate costumes and exciting choreography guaranteed to captivate all audiences making every show a night to remember. Always very well organized from start to finish, they have been entertaining crowds all over North America since 2009. The secret to their success is great musicianship, energetic personalities and a genuine love for what they do. This shows with each performance. Their charisma electrifies audiences of all ages.

A very energetic and enthusiastic show brings back memories and smiles on everybody’s face. The girls interact with the crowd and have people singing along to those always popular ABBA songs. With great reviews and often mistaken as the real ABBA, this ABBA Tribute is a great choice of entertainment for big concert venues and themes parties (disco night, 70’s night).

They performed several concerts in New York and in many states across the country… now including the Boca Black Box in Florida! You have TWO chances to see this sensational national act!

Win A $25 The Fresh Market Gift Card

This contest started 2/2027. This contest has a winner.

* Win A $25 The Fresh Market Gift Card.

Real simple story, Jeff Eats got a $25 The Fresh Market Gift Card to give to one of you guys. As you guys can see from Jeff Eats’ 7/24/11- The Fresh Market “story” printed down below, I’m not exactly a fan of The Fresh Market chain! Look, Jeff Eats knows that food/restaurant “reviewing” is purely a subjective thing- and what I like, you on the other hand may hate and vice versa- so just maybe this $25 Gift Card works for you!

The game- the first 25 “reader-comments” received – will be entered in a “blind hat pick”! You can submit as many comments as you’d like but- Please, only 1- reader comment – per day…play fair!

The $25 Gift Card is good at any The Fresh Market location (thefreshmarket.com for locations, info).

The Fresh Market, 20409 State Road 7, Boca Raton, Florida 33498, (561) 479-4845.

The Fresh Market…think Whole Foods Market (www.wholefoodsmarket.com—overpriced national “specialty” supermarket) and you got the whole (pun intended) concept in a nutshell. The Fresh Market is a publiclly traded company and as of June 2, 2011 had 101 stores in 20-states. You can check www.thefreshmarket.com for store locations/and other stuff.

Last week I stopped in the newest- The Fresh Market which had “just” opened on State Road 7 in Boca Raton. The space was previously occupied by an Albertson’s store. Like I said before, squint your eyes/and you’ll think that your in a Whole Foods. For those of you who don’t know what a Whole Foods is—specialty grocery retailer. Anyway…I absolutely love fresh orange, grapefruit, tangerine juice. To make a long story short, went to the the juice “area” and found fresh orange and fresh grapefruit. There were 2-brands Kennesaw and a Signature Collection. There was also a sign that in essence said that that Signature Collection was made by Kennesaw especially for The Fresh Market. Being a “good” shopper, I checked the “SELL BY DATE” on the product and low-and-behold I found a number of both the orange-grapefruit (Kennesaw-Signature Collection) quarts to have dates that had already-come-and gone. NOT GOOD!

Imagine—A specialty food market selling “expired” products?…or for that matter, any supermarket selling dated-expired stuff.

Sorry, I can’t comment on the fruits, vegetables, baked goods, prepared foods, candies…didn’t try them. I came for juice and found a store that couldn’t even handle the simpliest of tasks-having fresh products.

* Win A $25 Whole Foods Market Gift Card.

Real simple story, Jeff Eats got a $25 Whole Foods Market Gift Card to give to one of you guys. Look! I know that 25 bucks ain’t gonna do a whole lot of damage in a Whole Foods Market, but a $25 Gift Card is-what I got!

***** Whole Foods Market, 1400 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33431, (561) 447-0000.

It just dawned on me, that although I have referenced Whole Foods Market in several “joint” writeups, I’ve never done a writeup on Whole Foods Market. Play along with me, because I seriously doubt that any of you guys don’t know what Whole Foods Market is all about…

The best way that “I” can describe Whole Foods Market is- a national chain of specialty supermarkets…that does an absolutely incredible job-of-marketing its products. The reason I make the “marketing” comment, because give or take a handful of items, Whole Foods’ prices are ridiculously HIGH…for example, a quart of fresh squeezed tangerine juice at Whole Foods $3.99, while a similar quart at The Boy Farmers Market in Delray Beach goes for $2.49. The folks behind Whole Foods Market are real smart—they successfully carved out a niche in the organic food/product business—and you do know, don’t you, that many Americans are really into this holistic/organic/healthy/climate control lifestyle. Personally, I still believe that hiding under my desk at PS 179 in Brooklyn/1955 was enough protection from a Russian nuclear attack.

Just so we are straight, every so often I buy stuff at Whole Foods Market. The primary reason, my local Publix doesn’t carry the item…that fresh tangerine juice is an example.

Let me leave you with this thought. When I was a kid, my parents would let me and my brother “look” at the toys at FAO Schwarz in Manhattan…they- then bought us “our” toys at Toy R Us or a local store in Brooklyn for much less. For sure, every so often FAO Schwarz had a unique toy here and there, but then again my parents weren’t buying me a $1,000 battery powered car to drive on the sidewalks of East Flatbush—for some perspective here, in 1955 (just to pick a year!) pizza was $.15 a slice, a gallon of gas ran $.26, a small Coke went for a nickel and a haircut was 50 cents

Whole Foods Market is open 7 days a week 8am-10pm. You can check store details at www.wholefoodsmarket.com.

Happy Presidents Day

Posted on February 20th, 2017 · American Music/Events/Other · No Comments »

* Happy Presidents Day.

NOW! You guys can go on Jeopardy!

from history.com
Presidents’ Day is an American holiday celebrated on the third Monday in February. Originally established in 1885 in recognition of President George Washington, it is still officially called “Washington’s Birthday” by the federal government. Traditionally celebrated on February 22—Washington’s actual day of birth—the holiday became popularly known as Presidents’ Day after it was moved as part of 1971’s Uniform Monday Holiday Act, an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation’s workers. While several states still have individual holidays honoring the birthdays of Washington, Abraham Lincoln and other figures, Presidents’ Day is now popularly viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. presidents past and present.

***** 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.

***** SOHO Donut Company, 117 South Hyde Park Avenue, Tampa, Florida 33606, (818) 605-5649.

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.
