Super Bowl Tip: How to Eat Chicken Wings Properly

I've been eating chicken wings for about 35 years and I just found out that I have been eating them incorrectly. I didn't even know that there was a correct way to eat wings. I thought you just kind of bit into them and bit off a hunk and chewed it down. But, alas! Not only is there a correct way but a video showing you how to do it:

Steak and Shake Boynton Beach

Steak and shake has become my late night choice for eating. I don’t mean for dinner at 8pm. I mean when you just need a little snack after a nite at the casino or after the late movie. I mean 2am.

Big Al's Steaks

Since living in Delray Beach I have taken the tour of downtown Atlantic Avenue about 100 times, more or less. Everytime I passed Big Al’s I promised myself that I was going to sample some of his original philly cheesesteak sandwiches. So when I finally ventured into the sidewalk venue I was more than happy to sample one of the best philly cheesesteaks I have ever had and vowed to return.

John's Hero King

I heard that John's Hero King of Brooklyn NY had opened a Florida location with the "world's best heroes," so I thought I would give it a try. I was expecting your standard Italian sub shop fare that we are used to here in South Florida but not so. John's specialty hero is the roast beef with "muutz," (mozzarello,) onions, and gravy.

We know it as Flanigan's but the real name is Flanigan's Seafood Bar and Grill. The Commercial boulevard location was closest to my office and I would eat lunch there several times a week for several years. During those years I had the opportunity to try almost all the items on the menu as well as be "treated" to a few lunches by "Joe" Flanigan himself.

Carrabba's Italian Grill

I Love This Place! Carrabba's Italian Grill is my favorite "chain" Italian place. They have really got it together. My first visit was to their location in Jacksonville, Florida before any appeared in the South Florida area and I just couldn't wait for them to open down here.

I've been to several area locations and they have the main ingredient for a well managed chain restaurant: consistency; quality consistency. Excellent tasting foods, good service and at a reasonable price.

This past weekend Michelle and I took a short trip to the west coast of Florida. By the time we checked into the hotel and unpacked it was about 9:30pm

Myron's Deli at the Isle Casino

When you go to the Isle Casino at Pompano Park you become part of the "captive audience" and if you want something to eat your selection is limited to the Isle run restaurants.

When I'm there I always enjoy a corned beef or pastrami sandwich at Myron's.

Portobella Italian Restaurant

I have driven by this place a hundred times before I noticed it tucked back in the corner of a strip center at Military Trail between Boynton Beach Blvd. and Old BB Blvd. It was after 8pm and Michelle and I were ready for dinner.

The place is small, maybe 15 crowded tables, but they have additional outdoor seating available. On this night no one was outside as it was about 45 degrees out there!

Lenny's Subs

I really like Lenny's. They make some great tasting "old school" style subs along with some of the new concoctions. My favorite is the Italian Special. I've tried some of the others and they were all good but my my taste buds are most excited by the Italian.

I went to their location at Cypress Station yesterday for the umpteenth time and picked up my usual large Italian combo which includes

Ruby Tuesday

Michelle found a coupon for Ruby Tuesdays and we decided to give it a try. The location on my route was next to Palm Aire near Atlantic Blvd and Powerline Rd. We pulled into an almost deserted parking lot which was understandable at this time of day, 3pm.

Chris' Taverna

First of all I want to tell you that I'm not a huge fan of Greek food. But I do like to have it every few months. Michelle likes it more than I and I thought it was time to find a Greek restaurant in the area that we could occasionally go to. I turned to Yelp for assistance and found that Chris' Taverna had excellent reviews and it wasn't very far away.

About once every six to eight months I get a craving for those tiny, one bite, mini burgers made by Krystal. Flat grilled with onions and served on a fresh steamed bun with a pickle and mustard. The closest outlet used to be just off I95 at Daytona Beach and in past years I always stopped there to savor the aroma of these little jewels and gulp down a few (if 6, 7 or 8 can be called a few.)

Champps Americana

I've been going to Champps Americana for several years, mostly for lunch because it is close to my workplace. I've eaten my way across the menu and have tried almost everything on it! They are described as a "sports bar" and the walls are covered with television coverage of all the days events. But the food is definitely way past sports bar.
