Il Circolo Christmas Party, 2014

Carlos Gonzalez,Marco Capoccia,Sally Valenti,

Kristen Noffsinger, Tony Phillips, James Derry

Il Circolo, the Italian Cultural Society of the Palm Beaches, combined with Sons of Italy, Pompano Chapter, to celebrate an Italian Christmas at Via Mizner Country Club in Boca Raton on December 7, 2014. Members were invited to bring their children and grandchildren as activities were being planned for them. Guests brought Toys for Tots which were given to Marines James Derry and Carlos Gonzalez to be delivered to the local collection center. A jolly Santa appeared by surprise to give gifts to the attending children as they gathered around the tree. Marco Capoccia showed a video filmed in a small town in Italy where young, costumed dancers sang and performed a typical holiday dance.

A delightful lunch was served while Gino DeMarco played seasonal music, often with guests chiming in. Many door prizes of wines, candies etc., donated by Tony Phillips, President of Pompano’s Chapter of Sons of Italy, were awarded to the lucky ticket-holders, but the big prize, a basket of wine and food, was given to Francine Scaffidi who won the Tombola game, the Italian version of Bingo, traditionally played by families at Christmas time.

A good time was had by all due to the well-planned event orchestrated by Chairmen Tony Phillips and Marco Capoccia and assisted by Il Circolo’s Executive Director, Kristen DiNonno Noffsinger.

Buone Feste

Thai Bay Restaurant Has New Location

By Betty Thomas

Thai Bay Food Restaurant has been a favorite of Palm Beach County diners for the past 24 years. Formerly located on Okeechobee Blvd., west of I-95.

They have moved to 1000-A Old Okeechobee Rd., West Palm Beach. Owner/operator Boon Som has been serving up some of the best Thai food in the county for 24 years --- all home made with fresh vegetables, spices and her own sauces and over 100 menu items to choose from.

This writer had the pleasure of dining there Saturday night and I can assure you that you will be totally pleased. The service is courteous and efficient.

My favorite Thai dishes are the curries. I had the chicken vegetable red curry. So-o-o-o good. My co-taster, Jimmy, had the broccoli stir fry with shrimp in a brown sauce. Both our entrees were scrumptious. Soup came with our dinners. He had wonton and I had the hot and sour. Delicious.

Their prices are moderate and their menu is a full menu for lunch and dinner complete with appetizers, beverages, desserts, and, of course, Thai Bay Specialties.

Thai Bay has inside and outside seating and also features a complete take-out menu.

For more information or to make reservations, please call them at (561) 832-6091. Or visit their website at: www.thaibayrestaurant.com.



Tippi's Pizzeria — Delizioso!

Photo & Story by Jimmy Shirley

A business profile

Tippi Redzepi

Tippi’s Pizzeria is an established business on Okeechobee Boulevard, across from Century Village. Tippi Redzepi, an immigrant from Albania, first moved to New Jersey more than 30 years ago, where he opened two pizza stores.

He moved his family to Florida in 1991 and opened a store at Belvedere Road and Georgia Avenue and ran it with his son, Reggie. Eleven years ago, they moved to their present location at 5778 Okeechobee Blvd. in West Palm Beach.

They offer a wide range of Italian-type foods, such as spaghetti, calzone, parmigiana, salads, hot and cold sandwiches and so on. This writer has sampled their meatball sandwiches, their Greek salads, and of course their pizza. It can honestly be said you won’t find better fare around.

The late Sam Koppleman, long time adv. salesman for the Condo News, was a frequent patron of Tippi’s. He used to use his quirky sense of humor on them when he would complain they had not properly arranged the beans in his soup, or that they had inadvertently placed the sauce under the cheese on his pizza.

Tippi’s Pizzeria is open Monday through Thursday from 11am to 11pm, Saturday from 11am to 12 midnight, and on Sunday from 12 noon to 10pm. They offer take-out, delivery, and limited sit down, and catering. Call them at (561) 681-9224 or just stop by the next time you want to eat Italian. And, please tell them you saw their ad in the Condo News.
