* Inside the Rise of Eatertainment Dining.

Just wanted to share with you guys- an article I read this morning in QSR Magazine…

In a nutshell, it talks about the growing restaurant segment- the combining of food and entertainment under one-roof!

Now unless you’ve lived on Planet- Mars for the past 40 years, you know what joints like Chuck E. Cheese’s and Dave & Busters are all about…well, the QSR article discusses the next-generation of what QSR calls the Eatertainment Dining industry!

By the way, the article briefly mentions an operation named Topgolf (topgolf.com)-which for our Florida purposes currently has locations in Orlando, Tampa and Jacksonville- with Miami Gardens and Doral locations in development. Jeff Eats got plans to checkout Topgolf sometime in 2018! Take a look at topgolf.com- this “concept” looks to be off the chart amazing!

Inside the Rise of Eatertainment Dining

As the eatertainment trend continues to take hold, brands are placing a greater emphasis on food and beverage to capture customer interest.

Topgolf customers aren’t just there for the virtual golf; they’re also there for the premium foodservice.

A lot can be, and has been, said about modern-day consumers: They crave experiences rather than goods; their tastes are increasingly sophisticated; they’re seeking quality, value, and, above all, convenience. In short, they want it all.

And when it comes to food and entertainment, it looks like they’re getting exactly what they’ve asked for thanks to the rise of the “eatertainment” industry.

The concepts in this space go beyond just mini golf or movie theaters with concession-stand snacks. Instead, they’re a mashup of high-quality food, beverage, and entertainment—a one-stop shop where experience-seeking consumers can go for premium meals, fun activities, and the chance to connect socially with friends and family.

“It’s part of a bigger trend where people want to go out and have an evening and an experience at one place—dinner, drinks, and games all under one roof,” says Paul Kermizian, CEO of Brooklyn, New York–based Barcade, one of the original arcade bars.

Though growing rapidly, the eatertainment segment isn’t necessarily new. Its true beginnings came with arcade and gaming concepts like Chuck E. Cheese’s and Dave & Buster’s in the late ’70s. Over the last handful of years, however, new concepts have popped up and taken eatertainment to the next level in hopes of meeting millennials’ demands for a more elevated experience.

“Millennials really seek out and consume experiences,” says Robert Thompson, CEO of Punch Bowl Social, a “social emporium” featuring everything from arcade games and ping-pong to bocce ball and bowling. “When the largest buying segment speaks, most of the consumer-facing retail world listens.”

But millennials aren’t the only ones interested in the eatertainment segment. According to a survey conducted by food industry market research firm Datassential, nearly 60 percent of all consumers said they were interested in visiting an eatertainment concept, while 30 percent of consumers said they had already visited one. More specifically, around 40 percent of those surveyed said they were interested in visiting an arcade bar, bowling restaurant, or social emporium, while 26 percent were interested in visiting a golf entertainment venue.

Mike Kostyo, senior publications manager at Datassential, says the industry’s growth has also been driven by the social media era—“Everybody wants to go out and have an experience that they can share with their friends,” he says—as well as increasing competition within the restaurant industry. “If you’re a restaurant operator, you have to go above and beyond these days in order to get people out of their houses and create an experience that makes it a destination,” he adds.

This level of competition is just one of the reasons why today’s eatertainment establishments are making sure they’re worlds away from the concepts of old, particularly when it comes to food and beverage. “The things they’re doing food-wise, it’s not just pizza; it’s not just burgers,” Kostyo says. “In some of the places, they’re partnering with great chefs, and they’re actually doing some really awesome things.”

Last year, for example, Punch Bowl Social recruited “Top Chef” judge Hugh Acheson to lead its culinary operations. Thompson says Acheson’s menu is a modern, Southern-inspired take on comfort food, with items like Wagyu beef hot dogs, a bologna sandwich with green olive tapenade, and chicken and waffles made with chipotle cream cheese and pecan maple syrup. Punch Bowl Social’s customers expect the brand to challenge them with the culinary offerings, he adds; almost 90 percent of the company’s revenue comes from food and beverage.

Punch Bowl isn’t the only eatertainment venue working to erase guests’ experience with the concession-style dining of old. Though they dish “upscale bar cuisine” like burgers, flatbreads, nachos, and other Tex-Mex–inspired dishes, the Topgolf culinary team strives to exceed guests’ expectations about what kind of food the concept serves, says Seve Delgado, national director of culinary operations for the golf-themed eatertainment venue.

“They’re wowed by the fact that it wasn’t what they expected,” she says. “They look at us as an entertainment facility, but as they come more often, they learn that we’re so much more.”

A few of its standout items include the Brisket Grilled Cheese and the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Time), the latter of which is made with caramelized French toast and chicken breast marinated in jalapeño pickle brine. It’s then dredged in a Cap’n Crunch

breading and topped with jalapeño gravy, an over-easy egg, and bacon crumbles. “It’s a wow factor, but it’s one of those familiar favorites with a twist,” Delgado says.

Though Topgolf and its guests still see the brand primarily as an entertainment facility with food as an added bonus, the opposite is true for Denver-based Ace Eat Serve, a ping-pong hall serving Asian street food. “First and foremost, it’s a restaurant,” says owner Josh Wolkon. “The pong is a secondary part of the concept, and the event space it allows for is secondary.”

To reinforce its emphasis on the culinary side of the business, Ace Eat Serve recently hired a classically trained chef from Vietnam who’s responsible for overseeing the concept’s small-plates menu of items like bao buns, dumplings, ramen, and Asian-style chicken wings. Wolkon estimates that 60 percent of customers come to Ace Eat Serve for its food and beverages, with only 10 percent of its weekly revenue stemming from ping-pong.

While concepts like Punch Bowl Social, Topgolf, and Ace Eat Serve take pride in their in-house culinary programs, a number of eatertainment establishments look to outside vendors—such as food trucks—to fulfill that part of the equation. After launching their shuffleboard concept four years ago in Brooklyn, Royal Palms Shuffleboard owners Ashley Albert and Jonathan Schnapp needed a way to subsidize the costs of operating their club. However, because they had zero hospitality experience—and no desire to create their own culinary program—the duo built a fireproof room as part of its 17,000-square-foot space, where a rotating lineup of food trucks can drive inside the building and serve guests handheld food like lobster rolls and tacos.

“The key with the food trucks is that we have to find ones that are delicious, of course, but are also reliable and fast,” Albert says. “Because on a Saturday night, you’ve got a couple of thousand people coming through, and you need to get their grilled cheese in and out really fast.”

The concept also has a “surprisingly legit” bar program, she adds, where it uses house-made syrups and fruit purées to whip up a menu of vacation-inspired drinks named after shuffleboard legends.

Beverages are also a big draw at Barcade’s seven locations, where the brand publishes a new tap list every day and often hosts brewery-sponsored events. “We get a lot of regulars that are looking for rare beers that we pour,” Kermizian says. “So we have two circles of regulars: beer-focused ones and game-focused ones. Our best customers are the ones who cross into both of those worlds.”

While the concept’s vintage video and arcade games are top priority for Barcade, Kermizian says he does want food to be part of guests’ experience. After building three locations without a culinary component, the brand began installing full kitchens in its fourth location and beyond, serving items like burgers, wings, and a fried chicken-and-waffle sandwich.

Similar to Barcade’s decision to add food after the brand’s launch, some fast-casual concepts are adding entertainment elements to their already-established eateries. West Coast brand Mendocino Farms, for example, has installed everything from chalkboard walls and foosball tables to mini cornhole courts in the majority of its restaurants.

On average, the brand allots 300 square feet in each of its roughly 3,000-square-foot restaurants to entertainment elements, says cofounder Mario Del Pero. “You’re talking 10 percent of the total restaurant,” he says. “The dining room is probably only on average 2,000 square feet, so we’re giving a good swatch of space for these fun play areas.”

But these size constraints are exactly why Wolkon says adding entertainment spaces to pre-established concepts can be a challenge. “I think people do appreciate having some other form of entertainment included, but to go adding pool tables or bowling alleys or ping-pong tables, it’s real estate driven,” he says. “The ability to take up what would normally be a cash-flowing dining table or replacing six dining tables with a ping-pong table means you better have space somewhere to do that.”

Del Pero doesn’t buy that argument, though. “Plenty of people continue to use that old restaurant paradigm of, ‘Wow, you could be using that space for tables. Is that really a good allocation of space?’ And the argument back is that families really have embraced it,” he says.

While many eatertainment concepts don’t see fast casuals adding entertainment as major competition, they do encounter competition from casual restaurants, movie theaters, bowling alleys, and—perhaps the fiercest competitor of all—Netflix.

“It’s so easy to not leave your house, fire up ‘Game of Thrones’ on your time schedule, call one of your new delivery services to deliver from anywhere in town, and never have to get up and go out,” Wolkon says.

There’s also no concern about saturation in the eatertainment space, primarily because the size of the operations alone are a massive barrier to entry. “Our dining is 60,000 square feet, three or four levels—depending on where you are—so that’s a pretty big challenge,” Delgado says. “We’ve got these rock-star food runners who get the food out of the kitchen for us and hike it up the stairs and drop it off at the table as quickly as possible. We call them our track team.”

But even for smaller concepts like Ace Eat Serve, operating a dining and entertainment space simultaneously presents a number of difficulties. Because it not only offers food and ping pong but also banquet service for corporate events and private parties, Wolkon says, Ace Eat Serve’s kitchen is often under an intense amount of pressure.

“Our most challenging nights are the nights where we do a corporate event in the ping-pong room of 200 people, and then we still have a full dining room and a full patio,” he says. “You’re trying to handle the potential of 400 or 500 people all at the same time and still hold onto the quality of that food.” And since these high-energy establishments typically feature guests flitting about between the dining room and entertainment areas, tracking down customers is a challenge in and of itself, Wolkon says.

Still, operators only expect eatertainment to thrive. “The idea of adding more elements to what it means to go out at night,” Royal Palms’s Albert says, “that’s only going to become a more desirable feature of the hospitality industry.”

“It seems like a parody. But when Puddles opens his mouth to sing, it’s beautiful. Operatic.” – The Boston Globe

“Fantastically brilliant… originality at its best.” – Simon Cowell

The “Sad Clown with the Golden Voice” is back with his heartfelt anthems and a suitcase full of Kleenex! This Pity Party is not all sadness and longing though! The show is peppered with a brilliant sense of the absurd, mixing lots of humor with the awkward, tender moments.

A veritable “Pagliacci by way of Pee-Wee Herman and David Lynch” (The Atlanta Journal Constitution), Puddles Pity Party has 286K fans on Facebook and over 76 million views on YouTube for his indelible interpretations of classics by ABBA, Bowie, Cheap Trick and Queen and his unforgettable mash-up of “Pinball Wizard/Folsom Prison Blues.” You may recognize him from his recent appearances on America’s Got Talent and video collaborations with Postmodern Jukebox. Puddles has toured extensively in the US at legendary venues like the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco, the Kennedy Center in D.C. and the Troubadour in Los Angeles. He has also performed many times in the UK at Soho Theatre London and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Other worldwide festival appearances include the Adelaide Fringe Festival, Perth Fringe World, Melbourne International Comedy Fest, Just for Laughs Montreal, Belgium’s Gent Festival, Festival Supreme in L.A., Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle, Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin and Bethlehem’s MusikFest.

The New York Times exclaimed that “his special effect is a textured voice laced with melancholy… what makes him transcend the trope is his vulnerability.” And LA Weekly wrote “clever and often hysterically funny… [Puddles] is ideally suited to songs popularized by belters old and new like Tom Jones, Sia and Celine Dion, all of which he performs with tear-jerking bravura.”

In life- somethings bear repeating! With that in mind, give a look at- “15 Reasons Why Pizza Is Actually Really F*cking Good For You!- which first appeared on Jeff Eats back-on April 20, 2016.

The reason for this morning’s republication… last night’s 3 delicious- gooey cheese, sweet sauce, thin/crispy pepperoni slices from Stella’s Pizzeria, 19585-M South State Road 7, Boca Raton, Florida 33498, (561) 487-1886, stellasbestpizza.com, Reviewed 1/1/17.

* 15 Reasons Why Pizza Is Actually Really F*cking Good For You!

Last night Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did “takeout” from Bambini’s Garden Pizzeria, 14466 Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484, 561) 638-6442 (stories- 3/3/15 & 8/30/15). Simple order, chicken parm sub, sausage & peppers sub, large cheese pizza. Everything was delicious. If you live or work by Bambini’s and haven’t yet tried it- try it, you’ll love the food and the prices are right on the money!

Anyway, this morning at 6:30am for breakfast- Jeff Eats “did” 2-cold right out of the refrigerator Bambini’s slices and 2-8oz cans of ice cold Orange Sunkist and I got to thinking as to whether or not Jeff Eats eats too much pizza!

Long story short, I stumbled upon-15 Reason Why Pizza Is Actually Really F*cking Good For You!- on elitedaily.com and thought I’d share its “take” on eating pizza with you guys! As you will soon read, Pizza Is Actually Really F*cking Good For You!- so if you’re like Jeff Eats, eat away! One last piece of business, Jeff Eats couldn’t find any internet “pro or con” articles about drinking 16oz of ice cold Orange Sunkist at 6:30am- so I’m gonna assume that doing-so is like eating cold pizza in the morning- that being A-OK for numerous and sundry reasons (which for the time being, Jeff Eats hasn’t yet found on the internet)!

15 Reasons Why Pizza Is Actually Really F*cking Good For You!
Kaylin Pound

Feb 9, 2015

When it comes to the world of culinary achievements, pizza takes the cake or, in this case, the pie, every time. Pizza is probably one of the only foods that holds a special place in pretty much everyone’s hungry hearts.

But then again, what’s) not to love about these divinely delicious triangles?

Pizza is the epitome of a perfect snack. It combines a crispy crust that’s drenched in savory sauce and concealed underneath a mountain of melty, gooey mozzarella cheese.

And that’s not even considering the endless array of toppings you can layer on to craft the ultimate heaven-sent snack.

Deliciousness aside, pizza is also relatively healthy, not to mention one of the most convenient meals on the face of the planet. It’s quick, inexpensive and available at the wee hours of the night.

Plus, you can even get someone to bring it right to your doorstep so you don’t have to interrupt your six-hour Netflix marathon or actually have to put on pants and venture out into public when hunger calls.

It really doesn’t get much better than that.

If people tell you they don’t like pizza, you should probably consider cutting them out of your friend circle. Seriously. You don’t need that kind of negativity in your life.

If you weren’t already on a strict dollar slice regimen, here are a few more reasons you should consider adding a couple slices to your life.

1. Pizza can help fight cancer

It might seem hard to believe, incorporating a few slices into your diet on the reg can actually protect you from certain types of cancers.

Studies have found that bi-weekly pizza eaters were 59 percent less likely to develop cancer of the esophagus, 34 percent less likely to develop throat cancer and cut their chances of getting colon cancer by 26 percent.

2. It’s the perfect drunk food

Pizza is pretty much the holy grail of heavenly foods that will satisfy your drunchies after a long night of drinking.

All that dough will help soak up some alcohol. Plus, it’s quick, cheap and portable so you can grab a slice and eat it on your way home after the bar.

3. Pizza helps your body absorb more lycopene

It’s no secret that tomatoes contain lots of lycopene, an antioxidant compound that helps prevent heart disease and illnesses.

But eating lycopene-packed foods that also have small amounts of fat, like pizza, will make your body absorb this antioxidant much better. So, bring on the extra cheese.

4. Pizza will never judge you

Pizza has seen you at your absolute worst and never throws any shade.

Whether it has witnessed you drunkenly demolish five slices after coming home from the bar or soaked up your tears as you binge ate your way through a breakup, this delicious snack has always had your back.

5. It’s a quick meal that’s way better for you than other fast foods

Let’s face it, when it comes to fast food, chowing down on a slice of pizza will make you feel a lot less guilty than demolishing a Big Mac and fries.

6. Eating pizza can save you some serious dough

Not only is pizza downright delicious, but it’s affordable. If you live in New York City, you know that no matter where you are, you’re never too far from a place that dishes out dollar slices.

7. There’s a slice to suit everyone

Whether you prefer your slices plain, piled high with pepperoni or decked out in boatload of buffalo chicken and bacon-ranch, the possibilities are pretty much endless when it comes to dressing up your pie in something that suits your taste.

Most places even have special pies that are gluten-free.

8. Pizza doesn’t mind staying up late and losing out on some beauty rest

While most foods hit the sack around midnight, pizza doesn’t mind staying up late.

Whether you find yourself seriously hangry while pulling an all-nighter in the library or on a quest for food as you stumble home from the bars, pizza is always there to solve the struggles of needing a scrumptious late-night snack.

Plus, pizza always looks breathtakingly beautiful, despite the fact that it skips out on its beauty rest.

9. Pizza is packed with protein

Thanks to all of that melty, mouth-watering cheese, a single slice of pizza contains about 15 grams of protein, which not only gives you energy, but also helps your body repair cells and build big strong muscles.

So if you’re hitting the gym hard, a few slices make the perfect cheat meal.

10. Pizza doesn’t care how lazy you are

Pizza is probably the best thing that ever happened to lazy people. You don’t even have to leave your home to get your hands on one big, badass pie.

Thanks to all those dedicated delivery boys, all you have to do is call up or go online and, within no time, there’s a piping hot delicious pizza waiting at your door.

11. You can eat pizza for any meal of the day

You can get creative with your ingredients and tailor your pie to fit any meal in a way that goes way beyond cold pizza for breakfast.

Just throw a few fried eggs on your pie and you’ve got a tasty pizza to start off your morning. Looking for something sweet?

Slather that dough in Nutella and you’ve got a delicious dessert pizza at your fingertips. Simple.

12. Pizza can make eating your veggies a lot easier

Loading up your pie with some veggies, is a great way to up your intake of essential vitamins.

Plus, if you’re not really into eating your greens, pizza pretty much acts as a delicious disguises for those unsightly vegetables and let’s face it, broccoli looks a lot more appealing when it’s blanketed in the trio of melty cheese, sauce and crust.

13. Deep dish pizza is loaded with antioxidants

While there may be an age-old debate over thin crust and deep dish, researchers found that Chicago style pizzas have more illness fighting antioxidants because of their crust size, longer baking time and higher oven temps. So go ahead and demolish those deep dish slices.

14. Pizza knows how to dress for any occasion

Pizza is one of those few foods that can be adapted to fit any occasion.

If you’re feeling fancy, you can opt for the foodie-approved side of the pizza spectrum by dressing it up in some delicious artisan toppings and serving it in a trendy restaurant.

Or if you’re looking to take the more ratchet route, you can just grab a dollar slice and grab a seat on the sidewalk curb. Either way, it’s always effing delicious.

15. Pizza has always been your BFF

From pizza Fridays in your elementary school cafeteria to late-night get-togethers during your college days, pizza has always been there for you whenever you needed a delicious friend.

Plus, it’s loyalty is unmatched. You can be sure pizza will never spread rumors about you, steal your boyfriend or tag you in hideous pictures on Facebook.

As the saying goes, people disappoint, but pizza is eternal.

SERVING THE BEST DANG BISCUITS & DONUTS

We opened Rise in Durham in 2012 with a simple vision…serve great food at an affordable price point, made with premium quality ingredients by people who care. In other words, not your typical breakfast spot! Since then, we’ve expanded to eleven locations in North Carolina, locations in Texas, Virginia and Georgia, and new stores on the way.

Rise serves biscuits, donuts and sandwiches from 7am-2pm every day, waitstaff-free and with a swift service line. We’ve got fresh coffee, juices, and milk for you to enjoy while you wait.

At breakfast time, we offer unique biscuit sandwiches featuring everyday favorite fillings like our buttermilk-brined fried chicken, crispy bacon, salt-cured ham and country sausage topped with egg, cheese, and spreads. Come lunchtime, the menu shifts to sandwiches on a potato roll, including our righteous chicken, Savory Buffalo Chicken with house-made buffalo sauce, shaved celery and blue cheese sauce, and limited time offerings like the Cubano with roast pork loin, smoked ham, Swiss cheese, pickles and mustard. Yeast and cake donuts are available throughout the day and feature unique flavors like the Maple Bacon Bar and Crème Brulee.
