Galuppi’s – June, 2018 Entertainment Schedule (Pompano Beach)

* Galuppi’s- June, 2018 Entertainment Schedule.

Trust Jeff Eats when i tell you, I ain’t no shill for Galuppi’s (galuppis.com) …

Just sharing Galuppi’s terrific- June lineup of complimentary tribute/classic rock bands!

Posted on August 10th, 2008
***** 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).

Today Is- National Doughnut Day!

* Today Is- National Doughnut Day!

Surprise surprise surprise (I know, Gomer Pyle), today is National Doughnut Day!

Did some searching- and it looks to me like Krispy Kreme Doughnuts’ “one free doughnut of your choice- no purchase necessary” is definitely the best holiday celebration deal going on down here in Florida! That said, Walmart’s “one free full sized glazed doughnut- no purchase necessary” offer is a very-very close runner-up!

National Cheese Day

* National Cheese Day.

Bet you guys a nickel that until 2 seconds ago-not one of you had any idea that this coming Monday, June 4th was National Cheese Day!

While we’re on the subject of- making a big deal out of nothing, here’s a recent e-mail which Jeff Eats received from Boar’s Head about this very special “day” 😂…

_______
Hi, I hope you had a great holiday weekend!

Now that we’re back to work, I wanted to see if you had a chance to review my last email? National Cheese Day is June 4th, a day where Americans will indulge in cheesy goodness! Boar’s Head has shared a few key statistics about Americans love for cheese and even discovered that 9 out of 10 respondents would eat multiple servings of cheese every day if they could! Please consider using the infographic (attached) and statistics in my previous email in any stories surrounding cheese in the future.

Thanks!

Subject: 87% Americans Prefer Cheese Over Coffee, Chocolate, & Alcohol!

Hello – June 4 marks National Cheese Day, so I’m sending around information and data points surrounding America’s love for cheese on behalf of Boars’ Head. I hope you find these intriguing!

America’s love for cheese is undeniable, from sandwiches, to salads, to wedding cakes; cheese can be paired with almost any food group. To help celebrate National Cheese Day, Boar’s Head Brand® surveyed Americans on their overall feelings towards cheese and uncovered some interesting findings. It turns out, America’s love for cheese is so deep that 87 percent of respondents noted that they would give up either coffee, chocolate, or alcohol before giving up cheese! Some additional findings included the following:

67 percent noted that they could name more than 5 cheese varieties if asked
If they could, nine out of ten respondents would eat multiple servings of cheese every day
When asked if cheese were banned where they live, 2/3 of respondents (66 percent) would either definitely move, strongly consider it, or possibly move.

SOUTH
Boar’s Head also compiled online cheese-related data in the Southern region of the U.S. – here are their findings:
It’s Unanimous: Cheddar Cheese holds the largest online cheese audience in the South.
Texas Stands Out: Mozzarella cheese is the 3rd largest online cheese in every state except Texas, where Swiss comes 3rd.
Dallas & Houston Separate from Texas: Proportionally, Swiss Cheese holds the largest online audience in Texas, but Cheddar Cheese holds the crown in Houston and Dallas.

Boar’s Head cheeses use the same exacting standards for quality as its premium meats. Boar’s Head Brand® travels the globe to find the most passionate, artisan cheesemakers who employ these standards to ensure exceptional taste.

For additional information, please see Boar’s Head cheese infographic (attached) or refer to the official press release linked below.
