The WannaBeatles (Lauderhill Performing Arts Center- Lauderhill)

Posted on October 8th, 2018 · American Lauderhill Music/Events/Other · No Comments »

* The WannaBeatles.

Let me ask you guys something…

1. Which Beatles’ tribute band has been nominated for a Grammy Award (2012)?

2. Which Beatles’ tribute band has made an appearance on tv’s Huckabee show?

3. Which Beatles’ tribute band has a member who has won 2 Grammy Awards and 1 Emmy Award?

4. Which Beatles’ tribute band has a member who is a former member of the legendary Rock N Roll band- Sha Na Na?

5. Which Beatles’ tribute band has a member who as a member of Billy Vera and the Beaters played on the #1 1981 single ‘At This Moment’?

The answer to all 5 questions- The WannaBeatles!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have seen the Nashville based- WannaBeatles and not one of the band members wore a Beatles’ wig or spoke with a fake British accent…What you get- are four extremely-talented musicians in a fast paced extremely entertaining interactive show- recreating The Beatles’ hits exactly as The Fab Four recorded them!

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that- The WannaBeatles are an absolute must see act!

The WannaBeatles offer a fun-filled, family friendly extravaganza that goes “where no Beatles Band has gone before.” Of course, you’ll hear your Beatles favorites, but there’s much more! Their hilarious parodies, on stage antics, and audience involvement combined with ground breaking visual effects that make The WannaBeatles show a “must see.” Whether with a symphony orchestra or as a stand-alone performance like the original “Fab Four,” The WannaBeatles love what they do and it shows!

Love love love this joint!

***** Waffle House, 2580 Davie Road, Davie, Florida 33317, (954) 792-8150

Let the truth be told, Waffle House is one of Jeff Eats favorite joints to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner at! There I said it! I am a gigantic fan of this 2,100 unit 24/7 American “diner” chain which has been around since 1955. Over the years, Jeff Eats has eaten in Waffle Houses literally all over the place- yesterday, I did breakfast at the Waffle House located at 2580 Davie Road, in Davie.

Now you guys and Jeff Eats both know that this food “reviewing thing” is purely a subjective exercise- what I like you may hate and vice versa! That said, I challenge you guys to eat the Waffle House’s- hasbrowns smothered in sautéed onions/covered with melted American cheese and smoked hickory ham chunks- pecan waffles- Texas Angus Patty Melt- grilled biscuits & sausage gravy and then honestly tell Jeff Eats that “it” wasn’t like dying and going to heaven (I know, a bit dramatic!)!

You guys can check Waffle House’s menu/locations/info at wafflehouse.com.

* “Zinger’s Delicatessen–1 Year Anniversay”

About a year-ago, I told you guys about Zinger’s Delicatessen which had just opened in Boca Raton. One year later–some things bear repeating…

Zinger’s Delicatessen is one of the best, if not the best–New York Kosher Style Deli in South Florida.

I have “reprinted” Jeff Eats’ August 18, 2011 review…and it needs “only” three minor changes:
1: Zinger’s is open 7 days a week for lunch/dinner and for breakfast on Saturday-Sunday,
2: Zinger’s “current” potato knishes are as good as the pushcart-ones I mentioned.
3: Zinger’s website is up and running.

If real New York Kosher Style deli is you game, you gotta try Zinger’s Delicatessen!

***** Zinger’s Delicatessen, 7132 Beracasa Way, Boca Raton, Florida 33433, (561) 826-7323.

If, delicious- New York Kosher Style Deli is your game—you absolutely, positively have to give Zinger’s Delicatessen in Boca Raton a try.

For you fressers out there…Zinger’s in a “former” life, was Pastrami Queen (see 9/12/08 writeup)…to make a long story short, family “matters” resulted in Pastrami Queen closing in late 2010. This past Tuesday, Zinger’s opened for business—for our purposes, SAME OWNER!–NEW “NYC” DECOR!–SAME TERRIFIC FOOD!

Last night I ate dinner at Zinger’s.

Zinger’s is located in the exact-spot where Pastrami Queen was. Gary Zinger who owned Pastrami Queen is Zinger’s owner. The restaurant’s layout hasn’t changed, but the decor has…let’s just say, that stainless steel walls/ceiling and art-deco signage rival the best-deli decor here and in NYC. The joint has 3-flat screen tvs and a takeout counter that will make you want to quit Weight Watchers.

Let’s talk food…

To be perfectly honest with you, I seriously doubt that there is a better New York Kosher Style Deli down here in South Florida. I’ll even go so-far as to say, Zinger’s Delicatessen can easily hold its own with legendary players like NYC’s- Carneige, Stage, 2nd Avenue and Katz’s delis…if you aren’t a native Nooo Yoorker, please feel free to insert your hometown favorite delis’ names.

Just so you know, I was a Pastrami Queen “regular”…so, it was absolutely impossible to eat-at Zinger’s, shall we say incognito. The meal was “on the arm” with Gary Zinger literally having me “try” everything in the joint. Take it for what it’s worth, the pastrami, corned beef, brisket, turkey off the bone are as good as it gets. The joint also makes- delicious, potato pancakes-chopped liver-tuna salad-chicken salad-matzoh ball soup-smashed French fries-Italian beef sub.

Just so we are straight…don’t want you to think that I’m a Zinger’s shill—I’ve eaten better potato knishes—like the ones I, my father and brother Andy use to get in 1958 from the pushcart stationed right outside of Fortunoff on Livonia Avenue in Brooklyn while waiting for my mother to finish shopping.

Trust me on this…Zinger’s is a homerun.

Like I said before, I tried a load of stuff. I will tell you, that the sandwiches being delivered to the tables were nice-sized… I didn’t see one group leave without a doggy bag… and no one bitched to Gary about the service/prices.

Zinger’s website is www.zingersdelicom. The site is currently under construction, so give it some-time to get up and running.

Zinger’s does breakfast, lunch and dinner…The joint is open 7 days a week 7am-10pm.

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are definitely gonna be there…

from bocablackbox.com
One of the most sought-after jokesmiths in the entertainment industry, Bruce Vilanch has become a recognizable face in his own right, thanks to the feature-length documentary “Get Bruce!” (1999) and his one-time stint as a regular on “Hollywood Squares” (1998 ), for which he also served as head writer.

He made his feature debut as a dress manufacturer in “Mahogany’ (1975), starring Diana Ross, and also contributed material to her live act. Mr. Vilanch put his Muppet-like persona to excellent use as Santa’s number one helper in the syndicated TV-movie “It Nearly Wasn’t Christmas” (1989). On the heels of “Get Bruce!”, Vilanch performed his comedy stylings Off-Broadway in “Bruce Vilanch: Almost Famous” (2000). After a first act reminiscing on his odd path to almost famousness, he opened up the floor to questions in Act II, displaying his amazing ability for off-the-cuff one-liners. As he told US WEEKLY (June 12, 2000), there is a downside to celebrity: “Now, I get knocked if someone tries something that doesn’t work. Before it was the fault of these anonymous people, ‘the writers.'”

Vilanch began contributing to Academy Awards telecasts in 1989, collaborating with the likes of Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg and David Letterman, and graduated to head writer in 2000. He has roasted celebrities like Elizabeth Taylor and President Clinton. The Whoopi connection led to his providing the notorious material Ted Danson performed in blackface at a certain 1993 Friars Club roast of his then-girlfriend Goldberg, but his resume also includes “You Made Me Watch You”, the touching Emmy-winning valedictory Midler crooned as a send-off to Johnny Carson.

He scripted most of the Academy Awards telecasts over the last decade, two of which won Emmys, including the one featuring Billy Crystal’s Hannibal Lecter entrance. Mr. Vilanch has also written for The Tony’s, The Grammy’s, The Emmy’s, and just about every other award show to brighten your television screen. He also participates and volunteers at almost every charity function, especially those dealing with GLBT issues.

Mr. Vilanch capped off his 14th writing gig for the Oscars in 2003, wrote Bette Midler’s 2003 Fall Tour and debuted in the popular Broadway hit, “Hairspray”.

For the part of Edna Turnblad, Mr. Vilanch shaved off his famous 30 year old beard. No telling what’s lurking in there…but one thing it has never been able to hide….TALENT!!!

Catch this talented fellow at Boca Black Box!
