* Labor Day, Monday- September 4th, 2017.

Three guesses, and the first two don’t count- as to where Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats are gonna be eating lunch this coming Labor Day, Monday- September 4th, 2017!

For you “slow” guys out here…

Nathan’s Famous

1310 Surf Avenue
Brooklyn, New York 11224
(718) 333-2202
nathansfamous.com
Hours:
Sunday-Thursday 9am-11pm
Friday-Saturday 9am-midnight

If you can keep a secret, nobody and Jeff Eats means nobody- makes hot dogs and French fries as delicious as Nathan’s Famous in Coney Island does!

One last thought, although there are a number of Nathan’s “outlets” (check nathansfamous.com for locations) in Florida – Jeff Eats has yet to find even “one” that serves hot dogs and French fries as good as those made at the original Coney Island joint. Jeff Eats can’t explain “why”- but that’s what my tastebuds tell me!

Gilbert Gottfried (Palm Beach Improv—West Palm Beach)

* Gilbert Gottfried (Palm Beach Improv—West Palm Beach)

For what it’s worth, one of Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ all-time favorite comedians is Gilbert Gottfried- over the years, we’ve seen Gottfried “live” 5 times and each and every time he’s cracked-us up!

Gottfried is scheduled to appear at the Palm Beach Improv, 550 Rosemary Avenue, West Palm Beach, Florida 33410, (561) 833-1812 palmbeachimprov.com Thursday-Saturday (August 24th-August 26th). Tickets are 22 bucks (there is also a 2 drink minimum). If the Thursday date works for you, goldstar.com has $22 tickets listed at $10.

For those of you who have never been to the Palm Beach Improv- trust me, it’s a great looking showroom and every seat is good. Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have been going there for years—to watch America’s top comics. Just a suggestion—in addition to the show, plan on eating at the Improv…the joint has a very reasonably priced menu and its burgers, cheesesteak sub, wings are probably as good if not better than the stuff your favorite sports bar serves-up.

For those of “you” who may-be from Mars—who don’t know who or what about Gilbert Gottfried, the Palm Beach Improv site has a video for you to watch- also printed below is the Improv’s “biography” for Gilbert Gottfried…

“Gilbert Gottfried: At the young age of 15, Gilbert Gottfried began doing stand-up at open mike nights in New York City and, after a few short years, became known around town as “the comedian’s comedian.” After spending several years mastering the art of stand-up comedy, producers of the legendary NBC late night comedy show Saturday Night Live became aware of Gottfried and, in 1980, hired him as a cast member. It wasn’t until a few years later when his true notoriety would begin when MTV hired him for a series of improvised and hilarious promos for the newly formed channel. This led to several television appearances on “The Cosby Show” and “Late Night with David Letterman.” Gottfried’s work in television soon led to roles in film. Most notable was his improvised scene as business manager Sidney Bernstein in the hit sequel “Beverly Hills Cop II,” for which the New York Daily News said that, “Gilbert Gottfried steals the picture with a single scene.” Aside from his glowing reputation in comedy clubs, Gottfried began to gain a reputation as the king of quirky roles in both movies and television. He appeared in such movies as “Problem Child,” “Problem Child II,” “Look Who’s Talking II” and “The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.” He was also the host of the very popular late night movie series “USA Up All Night.” After his stellar performance as the wise cracking parrot, IAGO, in the Disney classic “Aladdin,” Gottfried became one of the most recognizable voiceover talents. His signature voice can be heard in several commercials, cartoons and movies. Gottfried also is the voice of DIGIT in the long running PBS Series “Cyberchase.” Gottfried has been a regular on the new “Hollywood Squares” and is a frequent guest on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Howard Stern Show.” Gottfried appeared in the hit comedy documentary “The Aristocrats,” with Entertainment Weekly saying that, “out of the 101 comedians who appear on screen, no one is funnier – or more disgusting – than Gilbert Gottfried.” Part memoir, part twisted social commentary, part scratches on the bathroom wall, “Rubber Balls and Liquor,” Gottfried’s hilarious first-ever book, was recently released. Also recently released on both DVD and CD is “Gilbert Gottfried Dirty Jokes” featuring 50 non-stop minutes of Gottfried telling the funniest and filthiest jokes ever. The show was filmed live at the Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. Also featured on the DVD is some of the funniest bonus features ever, including wild stories, indignant ranting and celebrity impressions that will leave viewers crying for more. For this live performance, Gottfried puts aside political correctness and fires an onslaught of jokes that know no boundaries. At the end of the show, Gottfried tells what is known among comedians as the “Dirtiest Joke of All Time,” which is also the basis for “The Aristocrats.” Gottfried is one of the most sought-after comedians, and regularly performs live to sold-out audiences across North America.”

Vinny’s Pizza (Jupiter)
Posted on October 20th, 2016
***** Vinny’s Pizza, 6671 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter, Florida 33458, (561) 575-5445.

For our purposes we’re gonna call Vinny’s Pizza an “out of sight out of mind” mom & pop red sauce Italian joint…

Jeff Eats first told you guys about Vinny’s Pizza on November 3, 2010…truth be told, hadn’t been back “until” last night when Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats stopped in for a Grandma Pizza and an obscene amount of Coke and Diet Coke. By the way, I’m kinda thinking the sole reason for the long-absence, the freaking joint is 86 miles round-trip from Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton residence!

Long story short, absolute dynamite Grandma Pizza!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats loved Vinny’s in 2010 and loved it again in 2016- with all things being equal, the next “love” is gonna be sometime in 2022! Hey, an 86 mile round-trip, ain’t exactly chopped liver either!

All kidding aside, trust Jeff Eats on this one, you gotta try Vinny’s Pizza, it’s that good!

Vinny’s Pizza

***** Vinny’s Pizza, 6671 West Indiantown Road, Jupiter, Florida 33458, (561) 575-5445.

Got a real good-reasonably priced “mom & pop–red sauce” Italian joint for you…Vinny’s Pizza in Jupiter, Florida.

Vinny’s menu has all of the “expected stuff”…pizzas, pastas, calzones, hot & cold subs, meat/seafood/chicken dishes (dinners–include salad, pasta side, garlic knots).

A recent dinner outing had me doing…large 16” pizza ($12.20), penne alla vodka ($10.50), meat lasagna ($11.25), veal parmigiana ($14.50). Keeping in mind, that joints like Vinny’s aren’t trying to reinvent the wheel—I can, without hesitation tell you that-Vinny’s food was terrific. Definitey one of the best NYC styled pizzas that- I’ve had in a very long time. The pie was thin-crispy-with an amazingly-perfect sweet sauce. As for the penne, lasagna and veal parm—I know joints that get double the price and can’t hold a candle to Vinny’s food.

Vinny’s is a winner. This is NOT and I repeat NOT—some hack joint, just turning out passable food. Do have one huge problem with Vinny’s…it’s 86 miles (round-trip) from my house.

Vinny’s Pizza is open Monday-Thursday 11am-9pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday noon-9pm.
