State Legislative Update in West Boca – April 10th

There will be a legislative update presented to the West Boca Community Council at the Boca Lago Country Club on April 10th at 7:30 pm. Please note that the speakers are apparently all Democrats, including Maria Sachs, Joe Abruzzo and Steve Perman.
–Update: report on the event is here: West Boca State Legislative Update
Since both houses of the state legislature are majority Republican, and the Governor is also Republican, it seems odd not to have a Republican voice at such an event. But nevertheless it is worth attending.
As always, we encourage voters to ask their representatives (of both parties) where they would cut spending in order to save money in these difficult times.
We can’t find any public notice of this event on the web, but we have been told it’s happening by a source we consider reliable. Neither of the websites is up to date.

Comedy coming to West Boca

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.

West Boca High Baseball

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 Restaurant in West Boca: New Location

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.
