A comedy event is coming to West Boca Raton – this time at the JCC off Glades just east of 441. From the Sun Sentinel description, this might be funnier if you’re Jewish.
Personally, I like the Sarah Silverman connection. I don’t necessarily agree with her politics, but she is funny and apparently so is her dad.
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.
The West Boca High School baseball team have been battling in recent games. We unfortunately lost one to Atlantic High School on Monday April 2nd. Details of that are in the Palm Beach High School Baseball website.
But coming off the state championship last year, beating Lakeland 2-0 back in May of 2011. Read more about that at TC Palm. Two players from that team were selected in the Major League baseball draft, including pitcher Michael Kelly who was picked by the Padres and signed to a substantial contract. Ream more in the Palm Beach Post.
Taso’s Greek Taverna of Delray just opened a brand spanking new location in the Westwinds of Boca plaza on the southeast corner of Glades and 441. This is a welcome addition to the area.
The lunch and dinner menus offer a variety of items including soups, salads, wraps and platters. The dinner menu has a kids section as well. A sampling of their gyro platter and greek salad was delicious. I also recommend the baklava. The ambiance is very nice and the prices are reasonable. Check it out!
For another good choice of Greek food in Boca Raton (especially West Boca), consider Jimmy the Greek Restaurant on Glades just west of the Turnpike, which is larger but could use a refresh of its interior decor.
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.
- Admission to the Grapes on the Green party, starting at 3 p.m. across from the 18th green
- Commemorative wine glass
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:
3rd Annual Golf & Wine Experience $85
Saturday, February 11 3pm-6pm
Is this an example of Groupon fraud? You be the judge.
