Direct from the famous Magic Castle in Hollywood California, renowned Magician and Comedian, Bruce Gold, brings his unique brand of Humor and Hocus-pocus to Boca Black Box Theater for a show that will make you roar with laughter and gasp in astonishment!

Variety Magazine called Bruce Gold, “A funny man of considerable charm” and Seinfeld actor, Jason Alexander, said, “Bruce has a truly funny act with great writing, brilliant magic and an authentic connection with his audience.” You may have seen Bruce recently on the hit TV show, Fool Us, with Penn & Teller. He’s also appeared on TV shows including, Master’s of Illusion, An Evening at the Improv, the sitcom Full House and he’s even been a guest on Oprah. If you happened to catch Bruce playing the part of a magician in his award winning, “got milk?” TV commercial a few years back, chances are he’s had you laughing already.

Bruce has performed in comedy clubs from coast to cost, on the world’s top cruise lines and in Las Vegas. When he was just 12 years-old he discovered he was a distant relative of Harry Houdini and imagined he too could become a famous magician, but when his first daring escape proved more amusing than amazing, Bruce realized making people laugh was a much better trick. He says, “As a comedy magician, unlike an escape artist, if a joke dies, I don’t.

Come see this specaular performace on the evening of May 20th, 2017 with us at the Boca Black Box!

Father’s Day- Sunday, June 18, 2017- Tropical Acres Steakhouse ( Fort Lauderdale/DaniaBeach)

***** Father’s Day- Sunday, June 18, 2017- Tropical Acres Steakhouse.

For some strange reason- right now, some of you guys are wondering where Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats are taking Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats out to eat on Father’s Day- Sunday, June 18, 2017!

Well wonder no more…

Tropical Acres Steakhouse, 2500 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33312, (954) 989-2500.

Real simple tale to tell, semi-upscale steak/seafood joint which has been around since 1949- which gives you one hell of a bang for your buck!

You guys can check menu/prices/info at tropicalacres.com.

***** Tropical Acres Steakhouse, 2500 Griffin Road, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33312 (954) 989-2500.

A few reviews ago, we discussed the never-ending search to find “moderately” priced steakhouses (Manero’s 8/28/08 & Raindancer 8/29/08) that serve great food at reasonable prices and have waiters-waitresses who don’t treat you like crap…say hello to Tropical Acres which has been in business since 1949. Checkout this joint’s website at www.tropicalacres.com for menu/prices/details.

Tropical Acres has terrific food…steaks, seafood, not to mention a handful of Italian dishes. Great wait-staff…and prices that are something like 50% less than those charged by the Robber Barons…they and you know who they are. The joint is just fancy enough to warrant your throwing on a pair of long-pants, but I think that shorts won’t get you “shown” the door.

Like I said before, the joint has been around since 1949, so just maybe it has been doing something right. Tropical Acres is open 7 days a week from 4:30pm-10pm…please note that it is closed on Sundays, July-October.

Win A $25 The Dandee Donut Factory Gift Card (Pompano Beach)

This contest started on 5/16/17. This contest has a winner.

***** The Dandee Donut Factory, 1900 East Atlantic Avenue, Pompano Beach, Florida 33060, (954) 785-1461.

Let me start by saying that Jeff Eats LOVES-The Dandee Donut Factory-in Pompano Beach.

For the record, Jeff Eats originally told you guys about Dandee on 11/19/11-but some stories warrant “re-telling”…

Just so we are straight, there are two other Dandee Donut outposts in South Florida-Deerfield Beach and Hollywood…Pompano Beach and Hollywood are owned by the same guy, while the Deerfield Beach store has a totally different-unrelated owner.

For the purposes of today’s story…I’m only talking about the Pompano Beach joint…which is open 24/7-which has indoor table/counter–outdoor patio seating…which makes amazing donuts and serves-up delicious “diner” food. If you are wondering why Jeff Eats is “featuring” Pompano Beach–it’s because this is the joint that Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have been frequenting -to the tune of something like twice a month for years. While I’m busy telling you my life story- Hollywood’s donuts/food are as good as Pompano’s…Deerfield Beach’s donuts are OK-but not great (Remember! I told you -this joint has a different owner not to mention a different baker)-but its diner food is decent enough.

At this stage of the game I’m gonna let you check dandeedonuts.com for menu/prices/other info.

If you got the time, you can “read” (or re-read, whatever the case may be) Jeff Eats’- The Dandee Donut Factory write -up (11/19/11).

I’m gonna close this story out by telling you, that if you want- terrific donuts, delicious diner food, fabulous pleasant service, perfect diner-decor (whatever that is!)…then you gotta get yourself over to The Dandee Donut Factory in Pompano Beach.

Oh! One other thing…

In surfing the net, Jeff Eats caught on TripAdvisor what I think is one of the greatest food reviews of all-time…

“Fantastic donuts!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2014 NEW
We rolled into Dandees about 1:00 AM at the end of August. Despite Pompano Beach being almost completely shuttered, Dandees was bustling. The donuts are far superior to Dunkin and the atmosphere was worth the trip. I believe my son met his future ex wife there!!

Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings (Trader Joe’s- Boca Raton)

Posted on May 17th, 2017 · American Boca Raton Chinese Fast Food · 3 Comments »

***** Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings.

For the past several months, Son Jeff Eats has been raving about how delicious Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings were/are!

Accordingly, yesterday afternoon- Jeff Eats bought a package of Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings ($2.99) at the Trader Joe’s, 855 South Federal Highway, Boca Raton, Florida 33432, (561) 338-5031 and later that evening ran a “taste test” at home!

Happy to report that Son Jeff Eats- like his dad Jeff Eats knows his stuff, as Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings were/are delicious!

You can check traderjoes.com for store locations/info.

from traderjoes.com
After enjoying similar dumplings in a local dim sum eatery, our buyers went on a quest to create similar dumplings we could sell in our freezer case. It was a long road, because these dumplings, known as xiao long bao, need to be stuffed with not only a ground chicken filling, but also a savory broth, before freezing. We kept at it, for months. The flavor of the filling was right but the dough was too thick. The dough was just right, but the broth kept leaking out. And then finally, one fateful day, everything came together.

Trader Joe’s Steamed Chicken Soup Dumplings are just that: a soft dumpling filled with chicken and a rich, savory broth. They come in a microwavable tray, and heat in two minutes or less. Once they’re heated through, we recommend some simple steps to amplify your enjoyment. First, you carefully remove them from the tray, taking care not to puncture the dough. This is important because you really don’t want to lose the soup inside. Yet. Place a Soup Dumpling on a large spoon and bite a small hole, big enough to let the gingery broth run out into the spoon – this is the step where you want the soup to come out, not before. Let them cool for just a bit – they’ll come out of the microwave very hot. And then, finally, put the whole thing – spoon, soup, dumpling – into your mouth and let the flavors, textures, and aromas treat you to that same dim sum experience that began our quest in the first place.

We haven’t seen dumplings like this in any other stores, and they’re challenging to find even in dim sum restaurants. But we have them in the freezers at Trader Joe’s, where we’re selling each six ounce box of six for $2.99, every day.

Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and a couple of friends- did a recent Casola’s/Bassets’ “outing”…

Casola’s Pizzeria & Sub Shop (Miami)
Posted on July 14th, 2009 · Fast Food Italian Miami Pizza

***** Casola’s Pizzeria & Sub Shop, 2437 Southwest 17th Street, Miami, Florida 33145, (305) 858-0090.

I’m gonna call Casola’s a “fast-food–red sauce–Italian” joint- because that’s exactly what it is- order at the /counter–pickup at the counter.

Not really sure how long this joint has been around😛…but trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that it has an absolutely enormous following- Was at Casola’s the other night and the joint was jammed and I do mean jammed out the door, jammed!

Casola’s menu has the ‘expected” stuff- pizza, subs, sandwiches, pastas. Check its website http://casolaspizzasubshop.tripod.com/for menu/prices/tons of photos.

My “taste test” netted me pizza, meatball sub, lasagna and grilled chicken salad. Now for the verdict- the pizza was absolute dynamite! The 2-slices that I had were as good as the NY slices that I grew up on in Brooklyn in the 50s & 60s. As for the meatball sub, lasagna and grilled chicken salad, real- real good!

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you- this Casola’s joint is a big time winner!

So that’s the Casola’s story!

The joint is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-midnight, Friday-Saturday 11am-4am.
