**** Campi Italian, 233 Northeast 2nd Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida 33444, (561) 576-8366.

Got a real good Italian joint for you guys to checkout, Campi Italian in Delray Beach.

Real simple tale to tell, last night, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats, Daughter Jeff Eats and Son Jeff Eats “discovered” Campi Italian (which recently opened) in Delray Beach and the joint’s food and service blew us away! Inside table/booth seating/ outdoor patio table seating, eat-at full liquor bar, reasonably priced appetizers/salads/pastas/entrees/desserts menu.

Just between you guys and me, Campi Italain is owned/operated by the same guy who owns/operates the iconic 40 year old Campagnola restaurant in New York City. The best way to describe Campi Italian, swanky looking white table cloth decor, hip super competent wait/management team, delicious food and a vibe that makes you feel as if you’re eating in an Italian grandma’s kitchen! Sounds- confusing? Go eat there and just maybe- you’ll “see” what I am talking about! By the way, the joint’s desserts are off the chart dynamite!

Let’s wrap-up Campi Italian by saying that its food killed, that it’s open, Monday-Thursday 5 pm-10 pm/ Friday-Saturday 5 pm-11 pm/ Sunday 5 pm-9 pm, that you can check menu/prices/info at campidelray.com and make sure that y

Just a taste…

The Otis Cadillac and the El Dorados R&B Revue is a 12 piece band that performs Classic R&B, Root Rock N’ Roll and related Blues oriented material. The band performs in a style that emulates the R&B revues of the late 50s and early 60s. It is the goal of each performance to recreate the atmosphere and energy that gave birth to Rock N’ Roll in that era. The band chooses eclectic and diverse material exposing the talents of its band members!

The Revue features the extraordinarily talented female vocal quartet of the Seville Sisters. Under the vocal direction of acclaimed vocal instructor and performer Kat Riggins they provide colorful harmonies, featured solos, dance routines and on-stage banter to compliment the Octogenarian iconic lead vocalist Otis Cadillac.

Don’t look for an overly familiar and nostalgic performance from this group. The seasoned veteran musicians that compose the El Dorados roar through the music and spur Otis and the Seville Sisters to inspired, soulful, performances that are stirring, fresh, fun and guaranteed to get the most jaded bun off its seat.

PERFORMER BIO:
Otis Cadillac, born Otis Lincoln Washington Dec. 8th 1927 in Pecos, Texas to Walter Washington, a blacksmith and loving wife Netta Washington, a Pilates instructor.

Otis showed remarkable talent with multiple musical instruments, including his hauntingly hypnotic singing style. Soon outgrowing the small towns’ inability to nurture his God given talents, at age 15, Otis grabbed a guitar, a harmonica, and with the clothes on his back, headed mistakenly south to Mexico, where he discovered he had been misled at some point as to the popularity of his beloved blues music south of the border. Fate being the harbinger of more fate, it was there he was to meet the love of his life, Penelope Lopez. They were wed Feb. 2nd 1944, and Penelope gave birth to their first child Marc Anthony hours later.

Having saved some money from his job as a tuck & roll specialist at a prominent local upholstery shop, young Otis and his new family headed north to find people of like mind to hear his music. The family settled in Detroit where Otis took a job and discovered the second true love of his life, the Cadillac. Working days at the Cadillac assembly line, and playing music at night, Otis was quickly befriended by blues legend Grapevine Robinson, who nicknamed Otis “Cadillac”, as he would come directly from work to the clubs while still in his work clothes.
Otis stayed in Detroit for the next 49 years and honed his craft at clubs such as Hatties Juke Joint, Marmadukes’, Diddy’s and the Woodward Avenue Waffle House. Otis worked with a great many fine musicians in his time, all of whom sing his praises to this day. This list includes such greats as “Hollywood” Henderson, Donald “Flea Bag” Sutton, “T-bone” Schwartzman, and of course the unforgettable “Primetime” Sanders, whose life was tragically taken, while fleeing law enforcement.
Now retired with time on his hands, a plundered 401K, his beloved wife long estranged, and an ungrateful son who took up harmonica, Otis is fulfilling his unending desire to share his music with the world. Please come out and see an honored American treasure.

BAND MEMBERS:
Otis Cadillac – Lead Vocals
Honey Cuddles Seville – Lead and Backup Vocals
Lisa Bailey Seville – Lead and Backup Vocals
Robin Curet Seville – Vocals
Sonny Boy Williams – Keyboards
Richie Corricelli – Drums, percussion
Dennis Freirech – Bass Guitar
Bill Devierno – Guitar
Clay Goldstein – Harmonica and Vocals
Steve Lombardelli – Sax, Woodwinds and Vocals

“The Otis Cadillac Band sprang to life…..The driving force came from the 3 piece Seville Sisters…Ward was knocked out as this impromptu band roared through classics like Don Gardner’s and Dee Ford’s “I Need Your Lovin’”…Quite eclectic and it came off well without a hitch.” Bob Putignano – Blues Beat Magazine

McDonald’s is working to introduce a $5 value meal in U.S. stores…

* McDonald’s is working to introduce a $5 value meal in U.S. stores…

Just trying to keep you guys in the loop…

PUBLISHED FRI, MAY 10 2024
CNBC.COM

May 10, 2024

McDonald’s is working to introduce a $5 value meal in U.S. stores to help offset an increasingly challenging environment for consumers, two people familiar with the matter told CNBC.

The people said the $5 meal could include four items: a McChicken or McDouble, four-piece chicken nuggets, fries and a drink. The value meal was first reported by Bloomberg News.

The potential new offering comes at a time when low-income consumers are beginning to pull back on spending, particularly at fast-food brands. Mentions of low-income consumers on company earnings calls are at their highest levels in nearly two years, according to data from Bank of America. Executives from McDonald’s to Wendy’s to Dave and Buster’s have all noted the restraint in spending.

McDonald’s recently reported a mixed first quarter, with U.S. same-store sales slightly missing expectations. Higher prices helped grow average checks, but some consumers pulled back as a result of the steeper costs.

“Consumers continue to be even more discriminating with every dollar that they spend as they faced elevated prices in their day-to-day spending, which is putting pressure on the [quick-service restaurant] industry,” CEO Chris Kempczinski said on the company’s earnings call on April 30.

He added that McDonald’s has to be “laser-focused” on affordability to attract diners.

On the call, Kempczinski said the company is working on a national value deal in the U.S., and the company’s Chief Financial Officer Ian Borden said the U.S. leadership team was working closely with owner-operators in this environment. McDonald’s corporate and franchisees, who run 95% of McDonald’s locations and weigh in on such offerings, are often at odds over promotions that could eat into owners’ profits.

An initial proposal by McDonald’s for the $5 value meal did not clear necessary hurdles, and additional details are now being discussed, according to a person familiar with the process. A second person said Coca-Cola added marketing funds to the equation to make the deal more appealing.

McDonald’s declined to comment to CNBC. Coca-Cola did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Beautiful Loser- The Bob Seger Tribute/ The Casino @ Dania Beach (Dania Beach)

* Beautiful Loser- The Bob Seger Tribute.

Literally, 25 seconds ago I picked-up 2 tickets on-line for tonight’s show!

Beautiful Loser- The Bob Seger Tribute is definitely one of the best Bob Seger acts in the business!

The Casino @ Dania Beach
301 E Dania Beach Blvd
Dania Beach, Florida
Tickets: casinodaniabeach.com ($22.50-$60)

From casinodaniabeach.com:

Beautiful Loser is made up of 9 professional musicians with diverse but accomplished musical backgrounds, from Kentucky, Indiana, New York, Maryland and a few from right here in Florida. They all share the same love for the music of Bob Seger and that is evident as they re-create the music in an authentic and passionate way.
Add to this mix of talented band members the voice of Ken Hurley as Bob Seger. A veteran of the South Florida music scene (and of the Marines), Ken has earned a reputation as being a soulful singer with a great voice capable of singing anything and while that is true, it is when he sings what he really loves, that is really something special!

In 2018 Bob Seger announced his final tour, so none of us can see one of his legendary performances again. That is where Beautiful Loser fits in…

Posted on April 6th, 2011.

***** BurgerFi, 4343 North Ocean Drive, Lauderdale by the Sea 33308, (954) 489-0110.

Walked into this free-standing “fast food” burger joint last Saturday night—and immediately new that I was going to love it. The easiest way to describe BurgerFi–Shake Shack (see 8/1/10 review) meets Five Guys Famous Burgers (see 11/2/06 review) with indoor and outdoor “picnic table seating.”

Let me make this real simple…one of the best fast-food cheeseburgers and hand cut fries that I’ve had in a very long time.

At this stage of the proceedings, check www.burgerfi.com for menu/prices/photos.

I am telling you, if burgers and fries are your game, you are absolutely gonna love this joint.

As a 1949 “baby” I think I know a thing or two about the fast-food-burger industry. Trust me on this, old Jeff Eats has eaten his fair share of burgers and fries.

I think I know exactly what BurgerFi is “trying” to do here…The joint’s decor looks like a roadside fast-food burger joint circa 1950’s/1960’s with some-modern touches…throw in “gourmet” burgers and “upscale” fries-other stuff…and BurgerFi’s got all of the bases covered. It’s cooler looking than Five Guys but cheaper than the “upscale” full service-burger restaurants that are currently America’s latest craze.

Check Burgerfi’s site, there are a handful of pictures which will give you some idea as to what I am yapping about here.

Like I said before, if you like burgers, fries, hot dogs, custard…you’ll love this joint.

BurgerFi is open 7 days a week 11am-1am.
