Flour.’ Guests can also order mechados that are served with white rice, baked plantains, black beans and customized with your choice of any protein or grilled vegetables. The restaurant will create 50 new jobs in the area and will also feature a Mercadito (mini market) where guests can purchase items to create their own Arepa experience at home.

Guests can also choose from one of Amaize’s specialty Arepas including popular favorites such as:

Beginning this weekend, Galuppi’s Restaurant and Banquet Facility in Pompano Beach is doubling down on hosting bands on their outdoor stage, much to the delight of live music fans all over South Florida.  Since last summer, Galuppi’s has hosted dozens of free sunset concerts at their large, outdoor, patio-terrace including tributes to Aerosmith, The Beatles, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Journey and The Rolling Stones to name just a few of the legendary artists and bands that drew large crowds and are already on the calendar for return engagements.

Some nights were hotter than others and summer rains forced some shows to reposition musicians under the covered area of the patio-bar, but that didn’t stop Galuppi’s from doubling down on their support of live music for as long as locals continue to show up, sometimes even bringing their own lawn chairs to see some of these bands – some of who play much larger venues and require tickets when playing elsewhere.  You just can’t beat the price that is being charged to the public to see these great bands!  Full  Disclosure: There is an optional fee for anyone that wants to reserve a table for their party  to sit in a reserved area called a “Band Box” but there are plenty of other tables available on a first come first serve basis.

In addition to tribute bands, Galuppi’s will also host popular local bands such as The Wildfire Band and Mr. Nice Guy.  There will also be some bands playing specifically for the Country Music fans too.  Below, we list who’s on the schedule for the rest of August and September.  Keep in mind that once football season begins, any FSU Seminoles game may preempt certain bands currently scheduled for Friday nights if a conflict exists.  Galuppi’s has a special Seminoles Football schedule currently listed on their website.
