Just so we are straight, Jeff Eats isn’t shilling for PGA National Resort & Spa…

Back on May 24, 2013 I told you guys about an outdoor Beer-Burger event that will be held on Saturday, June 15 2013 noon-4pm at the PGA National Resort & Spa in Palm Beach Gardens. The original Jeff Eats’ “story” is reprinted below…

The “reason” that Jeff Eats is bringing this particular-event to your attention-again…based on what I’ve been hearing from a number of people/vendors who attended this event last year’—is that the event was one of best burger/beer “bashes” that they had ever been to. The word– the food/beverages were great, there was no overcrowding, there was plenty of food to eat and beverages to drink, the staff was professional and the resort staged the event in a gorgeous area of the resort…

By the way…Jeff Eats is also hearing, that almost all of the 2,000 tickets for this bash are gone.

Anyway…Just wanted you guys to “consider” this outing—because I know and you know, that when “one” of these things is done right—they are loads of fun.
Jeff Eats literally just got this press release.

I know it’s dated April 30, 2013—but Jeff Eats just got it…and it’s still not too late to get “early bird” tickets.

This “one” sounds like it could be an awesome event…

All the “beer” and “burgers” your stomach can handle for 40 bucks—while you party with 1,999 of your dearest and closest friends.

For those who don’t know, PGA National Resort & Spa is a world class hotel/resort located in Palm Beach Gardens.

I’ll do some “snooping” around and get you guys more intricate details…like who the beer-burger players will be!

One final thought–last year’s best burger winner Chuck Burger Joint will be “back”- so, we know that at least one of the players is top shelf..catch Jeff Eats’ 9/30/11 review for this joint–in 2011 its food and decor were absolute dynamite.
