Pre-Season Football-Tennessee Titans Face the Miami Dolphins-7pm

Missing NFL football? You’re in luck because preseason games are just around the corner as your Miami Dolphins get warmed with rookie head coach Adam Gase. After four years in the NFL, quarterback Ryan Tannehill has shown his strengths and has the potential for a breakout year, especially with the recent addition of four-time Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster to the team. See how the Dolphins are building around this young talent when they match up against the Tennessee Titans, another team lead by a potent quarterback — in their case, Heisman winner Marcus Mariota. In addition to tasty concessions and beer, New Miami Stadium boasts improvements for this season including a state-of-the-art open-air canopy providing shade for fans and new HD video boards with improved audio.

Want to know one of the TOP Deli’s / Italian Markets?   Check out GUIDO’S MEAT MARKET-

So what makes this market so different from others? GUIDO!  …..But read my review anyway, submitted to Yelp: To: Dominic Guido: I had heard that if you love Prosciutto di Parma, this is the place to go. OMG! It was delicate and cut “like buttah.” Dominic Guido was so hospitable… while I was waiting for someone—he gave me slices of Guidos Meat Market-10407548_1047696185292949_2303010897766960991_nProsciutto to taste, as well as other meats and his homemade bread. He’s a character-–and a generous one at that. I’ll be back for another Prosciutto fix soon!
P.S. I also made the Pasta a la Vodka recipe he verbalized to me—loved it! And I used HIS Prosciutto in it, as he had recommended. Thank you so much for a fun tasting experience at your store!

P.S. Worth the drive!  Come in and experience “old fashioned service!

P.S  If you aren’t married to an Italian, there’s always Guido’s!

NEW RESTAURANT:  COMING TO BOCA IN SEPTEMBER:  JUNIOR’S DELI of NEW YORK

juniors deli in boca-juniorsOne of New York’s most beloved restaurants is officially coming to S. Florida. Junior’s, the iconic Brooklyn restaurant and bakery, is opening a location at Mizner Park in Boca Raton, slated to open in September, and taking over the former Ruby Tuesday’s spot. The 270-seat eatery will offer diners the option of eating inside or on the 120-seat patio. The restaurant will feature a full bar, a menu with more than 200 items, including classics like corned beef and pastrami, and a bakery and takeout area. Junior’s owner Alan Rosen’s grandfather, father, and uncle opened the flagship Junior’s in downtown Brooklyn on Election Day 1950. Once opened, the restaurant’s menu will offer what Rosen calls Brooklyn comfort food, from salad to sirloin steak. Of course, the heartbeat of the restaurant lies in its famous New York-style cheesecake. The cakes are made the same way they were made when Rosen’s ancestors opened Junior’s. “They hit upon this magical formula for cheesecake. The recipe literally has not changed, and how many things can you say haven’t changed in 65 years? It’s the blend of quality, history, and tradition that makes it so special,”  Rosen said. The secret to the cheesecake lies in a simple recipe of cream cheese, fresh eggs, sugar, heavy cream, and a touch of vanilla. The batter is blended for a full 45 minutes to make it creamy; then the cakes are baked in a water bath in a rotating oven. The resulting cake is an iconic representation of New York at its finest.If you’re planning a trip to New York City, you can visit Junior’s in Times Square, Grand Central Station, and Foxwoods Casino (in Connecticut) — but a visit to the original Brooklyn restaurant is a trip back in time — and an original New York experience.

NEWS:  A UNIQUE AND MEANINGFUL GIFT: “ADOPT A WILD DOLPHIN”Dolphin+Girl-viewerCAUR9JN5

I JUST “ADOPTED” a wild dolphin–His name is “Wonder”- I received a “Certificate of Adoption”, a brief life history and color photograph of my dolphin–and a hard copy of the book “An Ocean of Inspiration”–The John Olguin Story.  Each dolphin has its own Facebook page (and there are 300 yet  to be adopted.) All this for only $30 +  $5 for shipping in the U.S.  ( Or, perhaps, just get a copy of this wonderful book for $15 +  $3 for shipping in the U.S. ) This makes a gift that truly supports a great cause. IMG_0004(Note: You will be helping a dolphin scientist with further  exploration, observation and research to help preserve these special mammals. Support the Palm Beach Dolphin Project- For info:   harzen@taras.org or  561-762-6473 Click here to watch this video of a dolphin show-   CLICK HERE  Note By Scientist, Explorer, Author, Dolphin Researcher-Dr. Stefan Harzan: If you have an opportunity to swim with dolphins…why not do it in the open ocean? There, the dolphins may stay close or have the freedom to swim away. It is so much better, because we meet them on their terms.

Contact to adopt your own dolphin: Harzen @Taras.org or 561-762-6473

PALM BEACH COUNTY’S FIRST ORGANIC WINERY IS OPENWines are free from additives and tannins so it’s less likely to WineGlassSplash13make you regret downing an entire bottle the next day-At Sons and Daughters Farm and Winery, located west on Lantana Roa, there’s a tasting room and market retail space that offers guests a chance to sample the couple’s homemade wine made from fermented hibiscus flowers grown on their organic farm. Several taps also offer fruit-flavored kombucha including passion fruit, lemon, and ginger. Before it became Palm Beach County’s first winery, for many years the 17-acre plot of land was used as a commercial nursery; today there’s a pig and a few dozen chickens, and a rotating selection of seasonal organic crops that include figs, pomegranate, sorrel, banana, carrot, passion fruit, kale, broccoli, tomatoes, and okra available for purchase and also organic rice, turmeric, yuca, and edible flowers like hibiscus and nasturtium-Come try the early- and late-harvest hibiscus wine. While each pour a clear, blazing pink-red and have sweet and fruity notes, the early harvest offers a dryer flavor profile. Both wines pack a punch, as well-On a mission to create a sustainable organic farm that encourages the natural, symbiotic relationship between plant, animal, and man, they’re doing it while making some pretty good wine. Sons & Daughters Farm & Winery is located at 5926 Fearnley Rd., Lake Worth. Hours are Thursday from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call 305-613-8039, or visit sd-farm.com.
