Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you- if you’re into reasonably priced delicious seafood- Mr. Big Fish is a really good joint to know about!

***** Mr. Big Fish, 754 Neapolitan Way, Naples, Florida 34103, (239) 262-4665.
Got a real good- casual, delicious reasonably priced food, separate full liquor bar, pleasant service, indoor and outdoor patio seating seafood joint for you guys to checkout- Mr. Big Fish in Naples.

Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple did a recent dinner- and like I just said, delicious reasonably priced food, pleasant service!

As the reknown 20th underground sanitation expert- Ed Norton famously once said to his neighbor Ralph Kramden – “Into each life some rain must fall”- while your family and friends chow down like Mahatma Gandhi breaking a fast, you non-seafood eaters- are gonna struggle big time with Mr. Big Fish’s menu- which is real weak in the the non-fish food department!

You can check menu/prices/info at gomrbigfish.com.

Mr. Big Fish is open Monday-Friday 11am-9:30pm, Saturday-Sunday 3pm-9:30pm.

Back to ’76- Firefall, Orleans, John Ford Coley

Friday, April 20, 2018 at 7:30 PM

Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall
13350 FSW Parkway
Fort Myers FL 33919

Box Office: (800) 440-7469

Back to ‘76

The year was 1976. It was our country’s bicentennial and patriotism was at an all-time high. Gas was 59 cents a gallon and one of the greatest feel-good movies of all time, “Rocky”, was on the silver screen. The lush guitars and gorgeous harmonies of “Still the One”, “You are the Woman” and “I’d Really Love to See You Tonight” poured out of every radio in the country. Don’t miss this one-night-only reunion of the original artists who took those records, and dozens more, to the top of the charts!

Firefall

In an age where new bands come and go, Firefall has enjoyed a career that spans more than forty years and shows no sign of slowing down. Firefall’s commercial success includes three gold albums, two platinum albums and eleven chart-topping singles. The band’s biggest hit,

“You Are the Woman” has been played on commercial radio more than 7,000,000 times and has also appeared in many movies and television shows. Other hit songs include “Goodbye I Love

You”, “Cinderella”, “Strange Way”, “Mexico” and “Just Remember I Love You”. Currently touring with three original members (Jock Bartley, David Muse, Mark Andes), longtime drummer Sandy Ficca and talented newcomer Gary Jones, Firefall continues to make great music for a loyal following and garner new fans at every stop on their tour.

Orleans

Orleans is best known as the 70s pop-rock band that brought you the iconic hits “Still the One”, “Dance With Me” and “Love Takes Time”. Now entering it’s 41st year of live performances, Orleans has produced a body of work spanning 16 albums and several DVDs. The band continues to be in great demand domestically and internationally for live shows, as they have been for four decades. Co-founder Lance Hoppen (brother of the late co-founder Larry Hoppen), along with long-standing members Lane Hoppen, Fly Amero and Charlie Morgan were recently re-joined by co-founder John Hall (who had been on sabbatical as a US Congressman) in order to carry on with dignity and integrity the legacy that began 40 years prior.

John Ford Coley

There are songs you hear in your life that transport you to a certain time period or give you a special feeling. You associate those good times to the group that made them famous. Songs like “I’d Really Love To See You Tonight”, “We’ll Never Have To Say Goodbye Again”, “Nights Are Forever Without You” and “Love Is The Answer” have that kind of effect on people. Those songs and numerous others have earned John Ford Coley gold and platinum records and made him a singing legend. He has spent decades touring, writing, recording, and producing other artists but on April 20th, he’ll be singing all the hits.

Back to ‘76 is produced by Praia Entertainment Group (producers of the Barbara B. Mann’s wildly popular “Sixties Spectacular” and “Motown Christmas” concert events).

***** Pete’s Place, 1760 North Jog Road, West Palm Beach, Florida 33411, (561) 641-6543.

You regular Jeff Eats’ readers know that I am a huge-fan of “mom & pop” diners. For sure there is nothing wrong with the IHOPs and Perkins of this world- but all things being equal, I’d rather give my money to the “moms & pops” who own neighborhood diners and bust their asses each and every day to make a living- feeding guys like you and me!

Anyway, yesterday Jeff Eats and three buddies ate breakfast at a “mom & popper” named Pete’s Place in West Palm Beach- that blew all of us away.

Standard booths and tables’ no frills decor, pleasant service, menu loaded with breakfast stuff/ salads/ sandwiches/ burgers/ entrees/ desserts, reasonably priced off the chart delicious food!

Let me wrap Pete’s Place up for you guys by saying- that this joint is an absolute must try! No bs- it’s really-really that good! You can check menu/prices/info at petesplace1.com. Pete’s Place is open Saturday/Monday-Thursday 6am-3pm, Friday 6am-9pm, Sunday 7am-2:30PM.

And the story kicker, there are two other Pete’s Places- Greenacres and Coral Springs (check petesplace1.com for locations/info/menu/prices.

Edy’s Expresso Chip Ice Cream & Edy’s Neapolitan Ice Cream (Publix- Boca Raton)

Posted on April 12th, 2018 · American Boca Raton Deals Desserts Fast Food · No Comments »

***** Edy’s Expresso Chip Ice Cream & Edy’s Neapolitan Ice Cream.

Yesterday at- Publix Super Market, 3003 Yamato Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434, (561) 241-5005 Jeff Eats found a great way to get into a 51 Long Man’s Suit- $5.95 BOGO!

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, both Expresso Chip and Neapolitan are dynamite flavors- but trust me, as a long time Edy’s fan- Edy’s has plenty of other flavors that are also off the chart delicious that will also- get you to the “promised suit size Land.”

Check- edys.com for retail locations/flavors/info.

By the way if any of you guys “think” that Jeff Eats is talking about going from a size 52 (or higher) Long Man’s Suit down to a 51 Long Man’s Suit- I’m kinda thinking you don’t get my sense of humor!

***** Toast, 3020 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale 33306, (954) 533-7346.

Got a real good diner for you guys to check out, Toast in Fort Lauderdale.

Yesterday, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and a couple of friends did lunch at Toast and I gotta tell you- Toast came through with flying colors!

Simple concept at work here, booth/table/counter seating, open 7 days a week 7am-10pm, breakfast menu loaded with eggs/ pancakes/ waffles/ so forth and so on, lunch & dinner menus loaded with appetizers/ burgers/ sandwiches/ salads/ entrees with an emphasis on Greek stuff.

Like I said a couple of seconds ago, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats and a couple of friends did lunch- and the food and service were right on the money delicious!

Let me wrap Toast up by saying, it’s a real good joint to know about! Delicious food, reasonable prices, pleasant service and unlike most of the other diners down here in sunny Florida- it isn’t limited just to breakfast and lunch- serving dinner 7 days a week to 10pm.

* Giuseppe’s Cafe, 67 South Federal Highway, Boca Raton, Floria 33432, (561) 235-5039.

In recent weeks, Jeff Eats has been hearing some absolutely dynamite things about a “mom & pop” (actually in this case- a husband & wife) hole in the wall Italian joint- named Giuseppe’s Cafe in Boca Raton.

I haven’t eaten there yet, but I have walked by-the-joint several times and “hole in the wall” is being kind…maybe 6 tables and a few display cases for gelato and various baked goods!

Jeff Eats got plans to eat there in the near future, but in the mean time- I’m kinda thinking that some of you guys might like to check out this joint which supposedly serves up amazingly delicious salads, sandwiches, paninis, pastas, entrees, gelato and desserts!

You can check giuseppegelatocafe.com for menu/info.

Giuseppe’s Cafe is open Monday-Wednesday, Friday 11am-9pm, Thursday 11am-4pm, Saturday 5pm-10pm, closed Sunday.
