* Older Men Scam.

Just got the following e-mail from Jeff Eats’ reader, Norman G.

No ifs, ands or buts- the e-mail’s “warnings” warranted- my passing them along to you guys…
_______

Subject: Older Men Scam

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven’t heard about it…

A ‘heads up’ for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe’s, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart.

This one caught me totally by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping.

Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends.

Here’s how the scam works; Two nice looking, college-age girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their unmentionables almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. (It’s impossible not to look). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ but instead ask for a ride to McDonald’s.

You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing.
Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen May 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th and again on June 1st, 4th, 8th, twice on the 16th & 17th, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men.

Warn your friends to be vigilant.

Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought them out in three of their stores.

Also, you never get to eat at McDonald’s. I’ve already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Lowe’s, to Home Depot, to Wal-Mart.

So please, send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam.

(The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon).

**** Mott & Hester Deli Co., 1155 South Dale Mabry Highway, Tampa, Florida 33629, 813-289-9758.

Got a real good deli for you guys to checkout- Mott & Hester Deli Co. in Tampa.

Last week, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats discovered Mott & Hester Deli Co. for lunch- and I gotta tell you- the joint was right-up our alley! Menu loaded with breakfast stuff/ salads/ sandwiches/ pastas/ entrees. Order & pickup at counter, indoor table seating/handful of tables outside. Open Monday-Friday 8am-7pm/ Saturday 9am-4pm/ closed on Sunday (boo!).

Like I said 2 seconds ago, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats. Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats recently did lunch- and all four of us- loved Mott & Hester Deli Co.’s concept (NYC Kosher Style Deli meets Italian Pasta Joint meets New Orleans Po’boy Joint). The joint’s food, reasonable prices, super pleasant service, big portions- made/makes this joint an absolute winner!

Let me wrap Mott & Hester Deli Co. up by saying- if the joint wasn’t so freaking far from Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode- I’d be a real steady customer! As they say in German- you can’t win them all!.

Jeff Eat’s 7/24/08 “review”…

Maggiano’s Little Italy (Boca Raton)
Posted on July 24th, 2008 · Boca Raton Italian

***** Maggiano’s Little Italy, 21090 St. Andrews Boulevard, Boca Raton, Florida 33433 (561) 361-8244.

Let’s start this review off by getting you to Maggiano’s website at www.maggianos.com.

Maggiano’s is a national chain of “up-scale-looking” Southern Italian Restaurants. The website will give you menu/pricing/locations…If I have read the “map” correctly, Maggiano’s is currently in 22 states which includes 4 locations in Florida…Boca Raton, Jacksonville, Orlando and Tampa.

Maggiano’s decor is as “handsome” as most of South Florida’s “top-notch” Italian and steakhouse restaurants…the website has photos which will give you some idea as to what I am talking about.

Now let’s talk food. Maggiano’s menu is loaded with all kinds of appetizers, soups, salads, pastas, meat-veal-seafood-chicken entrees and desserts…sorry, no pizza. The food (now get this) is absolutely delicious. There are 2-ways that you can order…individual…or family style. Hopefully “individual” speaks for itself…Maggiano’s has a “Family Style Lunch” and a “Family Style Dinner.” Now stay with me…when you order “Family Style” the whole table picks various appetizers, pastas, entrees, desserts, etc., which are then shared and (here’s the great part) the amount of food is all-you-can-eat. Trust me, Maggiano’s has this Family Style-All-You-Can-Eat thing down to a science…it is basically a variation on the old Chinese proverb: 1 from column A, 2 from column B.

On my two outings to this joint, I “sampled”…fried zucchini, lasagna, chicken marsala, veal parmigiana, chicken cacciatore, shrimp oreganata…everything was absolutely delicious.

Now for the kicker…this joint makes a dessert called Apple Crostada that is absolutely fantastic…you can read the website for details as to how it is actually made… but for right now, “think” McDonald’s “fried apple pie” covered in vanilla ice cream…by the way, McDonald’s replaced the “fried apple pie” with “baked apple pie” in 1992. Anyway…this dessert is incredible and it alone is worth the price of the meal. One final thought…if you order “Family Style” you can have all of the Crostadas that you want.

Although Maggiano’s is done-up as a fancy looking joint, tee shirt/shorts are just fine. Individual prices are no more than your favorite neighborhood “mom and pop” joint…”Family-Style” ordering is going to run you about 25 bucks a head.

Maggiano’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. It is always jammed.

Jeff Eats’ 4/28/14 review…

Maggiano’s Little Italy (Boca Raton, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa)
Posted on April 28th, 2014 · Boca Raton Deals Italian Jacksonville Orlando Tampa

* Maggiano’s Little Italy.

Way back on a July 24, 2008 Jeff Eats told you about Maggiano’s Little Italy- a national Italian chain -which for our purposes currently has 4-Florida locations. If you check that initial writeup- you’ll find that Jeff Eats really enjoyed Maggiano’s food/service/decor/prices. To be perfectly honest with you-in the ensuing years, maybe I ate there (Boca Raton) again 2-tops 3 times. Just so you know, no particular reason for only 2-3 visits in 6 years- just giving you the facts.

To make a long story short…

Earlier this evening, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and a bunch of other folks- watched the Heat v. Bobcats game at a mutual neighbor’s house… The neighbor did a little catered-thing and had food delivered from Boca’s Maggiano’s. Not gonna bore you with the details- but the salads, pastas, entrees, desserts were terrific- now, I know these were free eats, but trust Jeff Eats-free or no free, the stuff was real good.

Anyway,

This neighborhood outing got me thinking about Maggiano’s…and low and behold- I found out that if you go to www.maggianos.com and sign up for its E-Club it sends you a $10 Welcome coupon, a $10 Birthday coupon, a $10 Anniversary coupon and periodically a bunch of other discount coupons.

The way Jeff Eats is thinking here, if I’m gonna eat at Maggiano’s anyway, why shouldn’t the money be in my pocket and not -the joint’s pocket!

So… If this “couponing” stuff is your bag…go for it!

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!

And- thanks for reading.

***** Bagel City South–6006 SW 18th Street, Boca Raton, Florida 33433–(561) 393-5383

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.

Now they lend their world-class vocals to the rock-n-roll harmonies of the 60s, singing the hits of The Drifters, The Beach Boys and Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons.
For years, one of the most popular vocal groups worldwide has been Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. The story of this group has even been made into an exciting Broadway play called Jersey Boys.
The Atlantic City Boys show is a tribute to them and several of the other classic vocal groups. The show is presented with personality, charm and great vocal talent.

The Victory Dolls Present I Left My Heart At The Stage Door Canteen (Mizner Park Cultural Center- Boca Raton)

First told you guys about The Victory Dolls Present I Left My Heart At The Stage Door Canteen (Mizner Park Cultural Center- Boca Raton) on 5/31/19. Since that date, the show has added a second booking on Friday, 9/20/19 (8pm) at The Delray Beach Playhouse (tickets/info thedelraybeachplayhouse.com). The word that I am hearing, is that the show (based on rehearsals) is receiving tremendous booking interest from agents all over the United States and that after the Mizner Park Cultural Center and The Delray Beach Playhouse dates- maybe heading out for a national tour! I’m kinda thinking SRO is in the cards for both listed Florida dates- so if you wanna go, time to make your move on the ticket-front!
