THE AMAZING KRESKIN LIVE!

The legendary mentalist, The Amazing Kreskin, brings his world famous live show to Boca Raton! This jaw-dropping show will blow your mind.

“Even now I know what you’re thinking.” -Kreskin

“Kreskin is the best mentalist in the world. Every time Kreskin is here he astounds us!” -David Letterman

“This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen! It’s a brilliant show… everyone knows it’s brilliant. I don’t think what Kreskin does is magic or tricks… I think he can read minds.” -Howard Stern

“The foremost mentalist of this or any generation.” -Bill Maher

“It is a pleasure and an honor to have you on our show! I’m excited to have you back whenever you want!” -Jimmy Fallon

———-

Amazing Kreskin Bio

With a showman’s flair, a comedian’s wit, and the capacities of a bona fide Mentalist or thought reader, The Amazing Kreskin has, for six decades, dramatized the unique facets of the human mind…his own. His very name has become an integral part of pop culture throughout the world. During the past fifty years Kreskin has had a television series, his own board game by Milton Bradley, twenty published books, and a major motion picture inspired by his work. In the 1970’s Kreskin headlined his own television series for five and a half seasons called, ‘The Amazing World of Kreskin’ which can now be viewed on www.hulu.com. The airline industry estimates that Kreskin has flown over 3 million miles, to reach a vast international audience with his unique brand of Mentalism. To reveal his remarkable diversity, John Romero, a leading gaming authority quotes in his book, ‘Las Vegas The Untold Story’ “Kreskin is the most dangerous person in the world with a deck of cards. The casinos would rather deal to Willie Sutton”. Actor/Producer Tom Hanks released in 2009 the feature film, ‘The Great Buck Howard”. It is announced at the end of the movie that the inspiration for the main character is The Amazing Kreskin. That character is played by the star of the movie, John Malkovich. In the 2010 movie, ‘Dinner for Schmucks’, the character played by Zach Galifianakis has as his hero and influence The Amazing Kreskin, which further exemplifies the wide scope of Kreskin’s exposure and attention. It is showcased with his recurring appearances on Johnny Carson, Regis Philbin, David Letterman and most recently Jimmy Fallon, Neil Cavuto and Howard Stern. 2014 brought a whole new realm to Kreskin’s arsenal when he mentally trained three up and coming boxers to victory. One of the winners was Heather “The Heat” Hardy and he was further brought in to prepare and condition her mentally for a contest of worldwide dimension. In October of 2014, he was brought into the ring to join her in the celebration of her success; a success that he helped prepare her for in the preceding months. She had just won the WBC International Junior Featherweight Championship of the World. Through the years Kreskin has received worldwide recognition for extraordinary predictions, often dealing with international affairs, and sports. On Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Kreskin predicted the 2012 United States Presidential Election, 18 months before Election Day. As revealed on Fox television for the 2016 Super Bowl, Kreskin made three predictions. He foresaw the deciding quarter of the game, the winning team, and their final score. In March 2016 Kreskin released his 20th book entitled, “In Real Time” featuring his major predictions for the next several hundred years. The day after Donald Trump was elected to the Presidency, Fox Television News revealed that Kreskin predicted Trumps election 11 months ahead of time, Live on December 9th, 2015 on FOX 5 Good Day DC Show in Washington, D.C. Kreskin now offers the sum of 1 Million dollars to anyone who can prove that he employs paid secret assistants, or confederates, or utilizes hidden, secret, electronic devices to accomplish his mental presentations. At 83 years of age, Kreskin shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to perform his legendary live shows in front of packed audiences around the world, playing over 200+ dates yearly.

In recent days, Jeff Eats has seen a number of tractor trailers loaded with cars with New York and New Jersey license plates- unloading their “cargo”- so to save time, let me answer the inevitable “best bagels” questions by reprinting this Jeff Eats’ article from February 23, 2015…

***** Bagel City South.

Jeff Eats recently received this e-mail…

Jeff,
Long time reader.
I know you don’t like or really do ‘best’ lists.
Indulge me, if it came down to just one south Florida joint, which one would it be for bagels?
I won’t tell anyone.
Thanks,
Anthony Franza

Anthony Franza,

You know that ‘best’ lists really aren’t my game…that said, if you promise not to tell anyone!

Bagel City South makes some of the best New York styled bagels and bialys in South Florida. The stuff is made the old fashioned way, that being hand rolled, boiled and then oven baked.

The joint is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch. Great place for appetizing, burgers, deli, eggs and of course those fantastic bagels/bialys.

Sassy waitresses and talkative countermen add to the New York flavor. This is a real good one.

THE BOL & THE BSTREET BAND (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek Casino- Coconut Creek)

* THE BOL & THE BSTREET BAND.

I know that some of you guys like to follow Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ social calendar- with that in mind- tommorow night starting around 6pm you can catch us at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek, 5550 Northwest 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073, (954) 378-7850.

Talk about killing 2 birds with 1 stone- we love Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food and we love The Boss…

***** The Bol, 5550 Northwest 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073, (954) 378-7850.

Got an absolutely dynamite Chinese/Vietnamese joint for you guys to checkout- The Bol located in the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek in Coconut Creek.

Last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son jeff Eats “discovered” The Bol and after applying Jeff Eats’- Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food Taste Test Circa 1957- I gotta tell you guys- that this joint is turning out some of the most delicious Chinese food that Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have had during our 27 year South Florida residency! As for The Bol’s Vietnamese dishes, no expert here- but like its Chinese stuff- absolutely delicious!

Simple concept working here- booth/table/hi-top/counter seating, open kitchen, almost reasonably priced (hey!- the joint is in a casino and I’m kinda thinking that something like 70% of the people that eat at The Bol- use “points” to pay for their food- thus the “non-local-neighborhood prices) menu of Chinese and Vietnamese dishes, super pleasant service, open Sunday-Thursday 11:30am-1am/Friday & Saturday 11:30am-3am.

Trust Jeff Eats on this one, The Bol is an absolute homerun! Forget that it doesn’t have Early Bird Specials and Combo Plates and all kinds of Dinner Deals- the few extra bucks you’re gonna spend (that’s assuming you don’t use “points”) to eat there won’t kill you- or require you to get a second job…and I’m telling you- that you will absolutely love the food!

You guys can check menu/prices/info at CasinoCoco.com.

Posted May 4, 2013
***** PDQ (People Dedicated to Quality), 2015 Okeechobee Boulevard, West Palm Beach, Florida 33409, (561) 594-1906.

On April 30, 2013 Jeff Eats told you guys about PDQ a “new” fast-food/casual chicken chain–that is scheduled to open its West Palm Beach location on Sunday, May 5, 2013. The April 30, 2013 writeup is reprinted “after” today’s “thoughts.”

For the record, this afternoon Jeff Eats “ate” at a Family & Friends outing in the West Palm Beach store and I gotta tell you, this joint is going to be an absolute homerun.

Before I tell you about my “meal”—for what it’s worth, I don’t really care for the name PDQ. To me, the letters P D Q really don’t convey what this joint is all about. Nothing for nothing, but the owners of this business have created a fast food/casual hybrid…think Panera Bread and you may appreciate where I’m going with this. What they “got” is an order at/pick up at the counter fast food restaurant that looks like an upscale sports bar. I loved the look of the joint (and yes, it’s got a load of large flat screen TVs) but if you do some checking, many people use the term PDQ to mean “fast” or “right away”…that said, I think the last thing that PDQ wants is for you to think of its food as being “fast food” The store is logoed with big letters that say, “People Dedicated to Quality”–so Jeff Eats sees where the PDQ comes from (actually if we wanted to get technical here it should be PDTQ)…personally, I wouldn’t have used PDQ because to a great number of people PDQ means “other” things. Jeff Eats’ personal favorites -Pretty Damned Quick and Pennies Dimes Quarters.

Now that Jeff Eats has pontificated on the PDQ name…let’s talk food.

First let me start by saying, this 4,200 square foot free standing building is absolutely great looking…it has a drive thru and looks like something right out of the Florida Keys. There is also a huge open kitchen and you can see everything being prepared. In talking with the its founders (who by the way, created the Outback Steakhouse chain) everything is freshly made and the restaurant has no freezers. While there, Jeff Eats got a kick out of watching the staff squeeze 100s of lemons for the fresh-squeezed lemonade—For you wise-guys out there, yes! I got a kick out of watching, nothing sinister, lewd or whatever your devious minds maybe thinking!

Jeff Eats “tried” the tenders, hand cut fresh French fries, chicken Caesar salad, fried chicken sandwich, turkey breast sandwich, grilled chicken sandwich, chocolate shake, apple slices with toffee—and I’m telling you, every item and I do mean every item was delicious. For the record–the food was “on the house”…which made it “easy” to literally order almost every menu item. If I got one bitch, I thought that the fries had just a drop too much salt on them—trust me, that one little itsy bitsy “problem” is easy to cure. Just a quickie, if you take a look at Jeff Eats’ 1/19/2007 Outback Steakhouse “review” note the salt-complaint… Goes to show you, Jeff Eats and the guys running this joint are consistent, if they are anything.

Check www.eatpdq.com for menu/prices/locations/pictures.

In talking to management, there are currently 4 Tampa, 2 North Carolina, 1 Oakland Park, 1 West Palm Peach PDQs…and “for” our purposes-2013-2014 planned locations-Wellington, Boca Raton and Pompano Beach.

Let me wrap this one up this way…

Based on what I saw, ate and heard PDQ is going to develop into a major national chain. The guys behind this deal know exactly what to do and how to do it…that is if they–

Just lose the salt shaker…

*****
April 30, 2013
PDQ’s menu features lightly fried chicken tenders/sandwiches, grilled chicken and turkey breast sandwiches, salads, French fries and shakes.

Just a quick heads-up…Jeff Eats is “hearing” tremendous things about a brand new-fast food chicken chain PDQ which currently has 4 Tampa/1 Oakland Park/1 West Palm Beach/2 North Carolina locations.

Haven’t tried the joint out yet, but some buddies of mine-told Jeff Eats that PDQ (Oakland Park) makes amazingly delicious grilled chicken/fried chicken tenders/turkey/salads/fries/shakes. One caveat, three of those buddies way back when- thought that the Edsel was going to be a homerun and the fourth guy to this very day-claims that aliens abducted him in 1989.

As I mentioned 4 seconds ago, there is one location in Oakland Park…this coming Sunday-May 5th, PDQ is opening a second South Florida location in West Palm Beach.

Check www.www.eatpdq.com for menu/locations.

For what it’s worth–the chain is owned by one of the guys who created the Outback Steakhouse chain. Nothing for nothing, a few quick conversations with a handful of fast food/casual restaurant developers–had them figuring that PDQ had a real shot to develop into a major chain. The consensus was, that PDQ may appeal to a huge segment of Chik-fil-A’s customer base that is looking for a more diversified menu. Throw in 4,500 square foot stores/with drive thrus that are open on Sunday—and just maybe, PDQ has the formula to be a homerun-chain.

Jeff Eats is gonna check this one out…if you get there before I do, let me know what you think.
