A fatal accident occurred on March 9th on 441 at Sandalfoot. Two women in one car were killed, hit by a BMW driven by a young woman who had posted some racy photos of herself online and made questionable statements on her Twitter account. We’ll try to update this story if and when we learn more.
I received an e-mail with a Groupon deal to see a golf tournament, the Allianz Championship at Broken Sound. The deal is misleading, and arguably fraudulent. Why? Here’s the language from the Groupon page: For $51, you get a golf package for one (an $85 value), which includes:
General admission to tournament starting at 9 a.m.
The interesting part is that the deal includes “General admission”. I do enjoy golf, this is quite close to my house, and I’ve never seen a tournament. So I went to the tournament website to learn more. I wondered what other kinds of deals there were so I went to the Allianz Championship tickets page. General admission to the tournament is FREE: Good Any Day Grounds Ticket – Free Admission No Ticket Required What you’re really getting for the Groupon, the $85 value they reference, is admission to the:
Sagi’s Grill closed sometime in 2013. In its place is Pita-N-Go Boca, which we reviewed in February 2014. I went to Sagi’s Grill for lunch today and enjoyed it. It’s a small and simple place in the southwestern corner of West Boca. It’s on the west side of 441, just south of Judge Winikoff and just north of Sandalfoot.

Sagi’s is recognized by the Orthodox Rabbinic Board of Palm Beach and Broward counties (under its former name Falafel Armon). In other words, it’s Kosher. I had the shawarma platter, which they make with turkey. It comes with rice or french fries. Both the meat and the rice were very good. The meat was flavorful and nicely textured. Lunch also includes their “salad bar”, which is not what you might expect. I didn’t see any lettuce. It has several bowls with various kinds of salads like cole slaw, potato salad, and some more ethic dishes that were all delicious. At $11.95, my shawarma platter seemed a little expensive. But it was a lot of food and I took more than half of it home. Also, it seems reasonable to pay a little more for genuine kosher food (even though I personally do not keep kosher). Table service was a bit limited on my visit. I was never offered more cold water or hot water for my tea, and since half the food came from the salad bar, there’s not much service needed. There was a big table of older Jewish women who were getting a lot of attention from the lone waitress. On the other hand, the place was not crowded. One other important note for families – the restaurant website does show a kids menu.
