Elton & The Jets (Galuppi’s- Pompano Beach)

* Elton & The Jets.

For those of you who might care, on Saturday Night, May 11th, 2019 Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and two other couples will be checking out Elton & The Jets at Galuppi’s, 1103 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33062, (954) 785-0226, galuppis.com.

Hearing some real good things about Elton & The Jets- so I’m expecting a real cool-evening of good music, good food, good drink and good company- not to mention the “show” part of the equation is a complimentary deal!

***** Galuppi’s, 1103 N. Federal Highway, Pompano Beach, Florida 33062 (954) 785-0226.

Last night, I had an absolutely terrific time at a joint named Galuppi’s in Pompano Beach. Just so you know, Galuppi’s which calls itself “Galuppi’s Restaurant, Patio Bar & Banquets” is actually located on the public Pompano Beach Golf Course… the view from its out-door patio of the course is absolutely amazing.

Galuppi’s is basically a restaurant/catering facility. There is a small indoor restaurant that has a large sit-at-bar, 4 booths and maybe a half-dozen hi-tops…outside, there is another sit-at-bar and loads of tables…there is also a banquet room attached to the restaurant that can be used for private parties or for restaurant customers. Now, to put this whole layout in perspective…go to Galuppi’s website at www.galuppis.com where you will find actual pictures of what I have been blabbing about, along with menu/prices/and other details.

Last night, Galuppi’s which does lunch and dinner 7 days a week and brunch on Sunday had The Beatles’ tribute band “Anthology” performing from 8pm-midnight. Suffice it to say, this joint was absolutely packed… the restaurant-the banquet room-the outside bar/patio…the band was on a small stage on the patio and I’ll bet you that from 8:30pm-10:30 pm (time I was there) there were at least 500-600 people maybe even more, eating…drinking…dancing. I am telling you, it was an absolutely great “party.” By the way, there was no cover charge or minimum…so for the price of a meal or a drink…or for that matter, just walking in…got you into this “concert.”

Just a quick note, “Anthology” was terrific. They were dressed in replicas of The Beatle’s Shea Stadium army-uniforms and had the requisite Beatle haircuts…they did some great covers of The Beatles’ hits. The group is extremely personable and their interaction with the crowd had the joint really jumping. Their faux British accents which came and went all evening long, added to the fun…and yes, they even have a left-handed bass player. You can check “Anthology” out at www.myspace.com/fab4anthology. I guarantee that based on last night’s action, Galuppi’s owners will have “Anthology” back for another gig in the very near future.

I already gave you this joint’s website…take a look at its menu. There are plenty of appetizers, salads, burgers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts to keep everyone busy…By the way, the prices are very reasonable and last night our waitress Bobbi-Lynn was absolutely terrific despite the fact that the joint was absolutely packed (and I do mean packed). Last night I had babyback ribs, I also sampled the crab-cakes, snapper francaise and steak kabobs. The food is real-decent. Personally I would put it about “1-notch” above the stuff you get in your typical neighborhood sports bar. Just so you know, Galuppi’s also has tons of flat screen tv sets inside and outside…Last night every set was tuned to the Olympic Games, so if “The Beatles” weren’t your game, you could scream for the American swimmers.

One thing that I found interesting…the banquet room has sound-proof glass. Amazingly, while eating in the room, you couldn’t hear the out-door crowd or the band at all.

Galuppi’s is open for lunch and dinner 7 days a week and for brunch on Sunday. According to its website, the joint has all kinds of entertainment and “specials”…so If you want to try Galuppi’s, I would suggest that you ”call ahead” to find out “what’s on tap” (pun intended).

Why You Should Fill UP On Gas On Monday Mornings…

* Why You Should Fill Up On Gas On Monday Mornings…

Some interesting “bathroom” reading…

Why you should fill up on gas on Monday mornings (and never on Friday afternoons)
• On April 10, 2019
Why you should fill up on gas on Monday mornings (and never on Friday afternoons)
Want to save money at the pump? Fill up on Monday morning on your way to work.

That’s the advice of GasBuddy, the fuel-savings app that tracks real-time data from more than 150,000 gas stations throughout t

In a study provided exclusively to USA TODAY, GasBuddy assessed the best day to fill up and the worst day to fill up nationwide and in each state.

While Monday is the best day on average nationwide to fill up, Friday is the worst day. (Scroll down to see state-by-state details on the best and worst time to get fuel.)

“Very early in the week, when gas stations are generally a little bit quieter traffic-wise, is a great time to fill up,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “We generally see more volatility and higher prices later in the week.”

On Mondays, some prices tick upward in the afternoon, so it’s often a good idea to fill up in the morning. On Fridays, prices often spike in part because some stations are seeking to make more money ahead of weekend trips.

Stations are busiest on Friday afternoons around 5 p.m., according to GasBuddy.

Drivers who fill up exclusively on Friday could save $20 to $30 more year by switching to Monday, according to GasBuddy.

There are exceptions. For example, Tuesday is the best day to fill up in 19 states.

Living in Utah? The best day is Sunday. Hawaii? Try Wednesday.

While the national average price of gas peaks on Fridays, Saturday is the worst day to fill up in 16 states, while Sunday is the worst day in 12.

The best day to buy gas, by state:
Monday: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming

Tuesday: Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin

Wednesday: Hawaii

Sunday: Utah

One of Jeff Eats’ favorite menu items…

LARGE FRENCH FRIES

The only thing I do- is tell the guy making the fries… “Go easy on the salt.”

* Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

Reprinted below is a Jeff Eats’ article which ran on November 2, 2006…at that time Five Guys was an “infant” fast-food burger chain.

Suffice it to say, that in the past 8 years or so–Five Guys has grown into a major player in the US fast food burger arena.

Over the years, Jeff Eats has eaten in “a” Five Guys numerous times…the food and service are consistently good. Prices are very reasonable .

If by chance you’ve never eaten in a Five Guys… check one-out!

Five Guys makes delicious burgers, fries and hot dogs!

***** Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries
871 Village Boulevard
West Palm Beach, Florida 33409
(561) 640-9555

Let me put this to you as simply as I can…if you like HAMBURGERS & FRENCH FRIES…you absolutely have to try Five Guys Famous Burgers and Fries.

Five Guys is a fast-food chain. The last time I checked, it had 118 units (located predominantly in the northeast USA). Five Guys is planning a “major push” into South Florida, so don’t be shocked to see “one” opening in your neighborhood real soon.

Five Guys makes one of the best fast-food hamburgers that you will ever taste. The same goes for its fries. The same also goes for its hot-dogs. Just so you know, this joint’s menu has burgers, hot-dogs, fries and a grilled cheese sandwich on it “and that’s it.”

I am telling you, that you don’t want to miss this one. For “right now” the only Five Guys in “our” South Florida area is in West Palm Beach. This joint is open 7 days a week, 11am-10pm.

The Mersey Beatles: Four Lads From Liverpool (Mizner Park Cultural Center- Boca Raton)

* The Mersey Beatles: Four Lads From Liverpool.

Real simple tale- one of the best Beatles’ tribute bands in the world!

Don’t miss them!

The Mersey Beatles: Four Lads From Liverpool

Saturday, October 5th, 2019 (8pm)

Mizner Park Cultural Center
201 Plaza Real
Boca Raton, Florida 33432
Box Office: (844)-672-2849

from miznerparkculturalcenter.com

Born on the banks of The Mersey – crafted in the historic cellars of The Cavern Club – The Mersey Beatles have been rocking sold-out audiences around the globe since 1999. Today, they are rightly regarded as THE WORLD’S BEST-LOVED LIVERPOOL-BORN BEATLES TRIBUTE… just ask the hundreds of thousands of fans who have seen them over the last 20 years!

The Mersey Beatles were not dreamed up, or cynically manufactured, by a theatre empresario or West End producer… these lads are THE REAL DEAL! They are proudly four mates whose passion for the greatest band of all time shines through in every one of their brilliant shows. Mark Bloor, Steven Howard and Brian Ambrose (that’s John, Paul and Ringo) attended high school together in Liverpool. Craig McGown (he’s the baby of the band and the ‘quiet one’) completes the line up as George.

The Mersey Beatles were the resident Beatles’ tribute at the world-famous Cavern for more than a decade between 2002-2012. They clocked up 600+ performances under the famed Matthew Street arches – almost twice as many gigs there as the original Fab Four played themselves.

Since leaving to tour the world, they have taken their pounding, pulsating and unmistakable ‘Mersey Beat’ to excited and sold-out audiences across Europe, USA, Asia and Australia.

While receiving world-wide plaudits (including glowing praise from members of The Beatles’ own families), The Mersey Beatles have never forgotten their roots and pride themselves on presenting the Fab Four in a most authentic and truly Liverpool-born way. Just like the audiences they play to at their sold-out theatre, arena and festival shows – the band are all die-hard Beatles fans. Every song and every moment are a celebration of the best pop music ever, from the ‘Mop Top’ hits of Beatlemania, through the psychedelic creativity of Sgt. Pepper to the melodic wonder of the Fab Four’s later work.

All shows are brilliantly brought to life by a band who exude the inner and outer spirit of the real thing, from the costumes, instruments, Scouse charm and, of course, that wonderful era-defining, Mersey sound. So, get on board for The Mersey Beatles’ hit show, presented in the most authentic way you will ever see. It goes without saying you’ll have a FAB time!
