* Real Fast- Tell Me The Name Of Hillary Clinton’s VP Running Mate!
Here…I’ll help you!
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine
With July 4th, 2018 rapidly approaching- do you guys honestly think that 242 years ago this guy could have sat around the table with Washington, Jefferson and Adams-and figured things out for us? If you think-yes, you’re only fooling yourselves because 2 seconds ago you didn’t even remember his name?
For you guys who don’t like Trump and Pence, all I can tell you is that you did it all to yourselves!
For you guys who like Trump and Pence, all I can tell you is that you lucked out beyond belief when Hillary Clinton got that nomination!
Just a July 4th holiday unsolicited Jeff Eats’ political pontification!🧐
Real simple tale, outrageously delicious New York Style Pizza!
Posted on May 2nd, 2017
***** Pizza Bar, 1627 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach, Florida 33139, (305) 672-6880.
For all you guys out there looking for off the chart delicious New York Style Pizza (thin crispy crust, sweet sauce, loads of gooey cheese, oil drip when the slice is pointed down) you gotta checkout- Pizza Bar in Miami Beach. Real simple concept at work there- order/pickup at the counter, humongous slices/ subs/ salads/ wings/ stromboli/ other stuff, counter seating, handful of tables inside/ outside, open Monday-Wednesday 11am-2am, Thursday 11am-3:59am. Menu/prices/info at pizzabar.com.
Long story short, last night- Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats tried this joint and it blew us away. No bs- Pizza Bar’s pizza easily matched up against some of the best New York slices we’ve “enjoyed” over the past 60+ years in the 5- boroughs!
Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats also “did” a Greek salad and like the pizza it- was right on the money!
By the way, Pizza Bar’s wings and subs looked dynamite- so Jeff Eats is kinda thinking that Pizza Bar isn’t just a one trick pony- with the pizza! The next time Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are at Pizza Bar, we’ll do some wings and subs, so we’ll know for sure!
Subs or no subs, wings or no wings- based on its pizza alone- Pizza Bar is an absolute must try!
* The Greatest Love of All: The Whitney Houston Show!
Apparently- the Broward Center’s “booker” thought that tribute show- The Greatest Love Of All: The Whitney Houston Show would do well (out of season) at the Au-Rene Theater on Friday, July 13, 2018 (8pm)-pricing tickets at $20-$79.50- he/she appears to have figured wrong- with loads of tickets still available (browardcenter.org)- with less than 2 weeks before show-time!
Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, nobody can sing like Whitney Houston did, period!
That said, tribute artist- Belinda Davids has some real strong pipes…
Au-Rene Theater at The Broward Center for the Performing Arts,
201 Southwest 5th Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33312
Box Office: (954) 462-02222
Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have seen the Blues Brothers Soul Band loads of times- trust me, these guys are absolutely awesome!
By the way, before the show-Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and our friends will be doing “pizza” at Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza which is about 10 minutes away from the Wellington Amphitheater…
Posted on September 29th, 2014
***** Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza, 9140 Forest Hill Boulevard, Wellington, Florida 33411, (561) 333-4949.
Last night, Jeff Eats took-out from red sauce Italian joint… Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza in Wellington. and I gotta tell you, this restaurant makes some really delicious stuff.
Real simple concept, order at the counter/takeout…or the food is delivered to something like 6 inside booths/handful of outside tables. By the way, the restaurant is located in a very quaint cool looking “New England” style strip-center…which also has a Chinese joint, a Dunkin’ Donuts, an ice cream store, a custom cake- making store, a liquor store–you won’t think- you’re in Florida! Real interesting, in addition to ice cream and yogurt-the ice cream store sells fresh orange juice quarts/gallons-candy by the pound, and has a whole area for fresh flowers…the Chinese joint which is basically a takeout has 4 large 6- seat booths-for those who want to eat-in. Like I said 1 second ago, the strip center has a real different feel to it!
Jeff Eats “got to” Basilico’s around 6:30pm last night and there was something like 8 guys behind the counter making pizzas etc. and 2 young ladies at the register. In the 25 minutes or so that I waited for my order, every booth inside was taken and I watched numerous pickups and phone orders being taken…I didn’t notice anyone eating outside.
Basilico’s menu is loaded with appetizers, salads, pizzas, pastas, strombolis, calzones, hot/cold subs, entrees. You can check its menu/prices at basilicospizza.com.
Ordered items included large 16″ pizza ($9.99), Chicken parmesan sub ($7.99), sausage & peppers stromboli ($6.79), eggplant parmesan entrée (pasta side/garlic breadsticks- $10.59) and like I said 3 seconds ago, the stuff was really delicious.
Jeff Eats has been to his fair share of red sauce Italian joints down here in south Florida and- this Basilico’s joint is a huge winner. The food was really-solid, the prices CHEAP (I believe I’m suppose to say inexpensive or very reasonable)-trust me, Basilico’s gives you a ton of food for cheap-money-and the food isn’t crap quality!
Let me wrap this up for you, if Basilico’s was by my house (which unfortunately it isn’t) Jeff Eats would definitely be a very steady customer.
Basilico’s Original Hand-Tossed Pizza is open 7 days a week.
Fifty six years ago- unbeknownst to a 24 year old black doo wop lead singer from Brooklyn named Eugene Sampson Pitt his songs “My True Story” and “What Time Is It?” made a chubby white Jewish 12 year old boy from Brooklyn fall in love with doo wop and Rock N Roll forever…
Gene, in the ensuing years our paths sadly only crossed once- but trust me, you and the other members of Jive Five helped light the passion!
Rest In Peace
Quoting a line from his biggest hit, “We must cry, cry, cry our blues away.” Famed lead singer of the JIVE FIVE, EUGENE PITT has died at the age of 80. His biggest hit was “MY TRUE STORY” – a Top Three smash in the early 1960s. Eugene was able to follow that hit up with numerous others including “What Time Is It,” “Never Never,” “These Golden Rings” and “I’m a Happy Man.” Eugene continued to tour with his group until recently. He and his amazing music will be missed.
Got a real good “mom & pop” Italian red sauce joint for you guys to checkout- Mama Maria’s Pizzeria in Venice.
Real simple tale to tell…yesterday, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did lunch at Mama Maria’s Pizzeria and I gotta tell you- off the chart delicious stuff! Our order: 1- 10” Cheese Steak sub, 1- slice of cheese pizza, 2- 10” Chicken Bomb subs! Like I just said, off the chart delicious! Now you guys and I both know that this food reviewing “gig” is just a big old subjective call- like what I think is hot, you may think is cold and vice versa- with that in mind, I am telling you that Mama Maria’s Chicken Bomb subs were right up there with the best Chicken Bombs that Jeff Eats and for that matter Mrs. Jeff Eats have had since this blog’s 2006 debut! Like I said, “subjective”- but trust me when I tell you, off the chart delicious! By the way, the cheese pizza was a New York Style thin crisp crust/ sweet sauce slice- it and the Cheese Steak sub like the Chicken Bombs were absolutely delicious!
Let me wrap Mama Maria’s Pizzeria up by saying- if this joint wasn’t 221 miles away from the Eats’ Boca Raton abode- we would definitely be real steady customers.
Mama Maria’s Pizzeria is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-9:30pm, Sunday 3:30pm-9pm.
Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you- these corn muffins are off the chart delicious!

***** The Bakery Sweet Corn Muffins.
If you like corn muffins- the bet here is that you’re gonna love Walmart’s “house brand” The Bakery Sweet Corn Muffins.
Yesterday, the pictured package cost Jeff Eats $3.98 at- the Walmart Supercenter, 16205 South Military Trail, Delray Beach, Florida 33484- and I gotta tell you guys, these muffins blew Jeff Eats away! Now, I’m not claiming to be a corn muffin or for that matter a cornbread- expert or something- but Jeff Eats does know that its-been a very long time since I’ve eaten a corn muffin/bread as delicious as The Bakery Sweet Corn Muffins that I picked-up yesterday!
Like I said 3-seconds ago…If you like corm muffins- the bet here- is that you’ll love Walmart’s “house brand” The Bakery Sweet Corn Muffins- they hooked Jeff Eats!
