The 2011 NBA Basketball Playoffs are in high gear, and the Los Angeles Lakers have shifted into full throttle! Currently, the Lakers are leading 3-2 against the New Orleans Hornets. Benjies Deli admits we were feeling a tad worried after a rather atrocious Game 1, where front man Pau Gasol, who normally averages 22.3 points per game, only scored a meager eight points and grabbed only six rebounds on the offensive. The poor performance caused the Lakers, ranked number 2 team by the Western Conference, to lose to the seventh-seeded Hornets! Talk about an upset! Lakers made a comeback in Game 2, with Andrew Bynum, Ron Artest and Lamar Odom picking up on Gasol’s slack, though the Hornets remained competitive until the end and definitely gave the Lakers a run for their money.
Though the Lakers are off to a fumbling start, Benjies Deli still has faith in our favorite LA team! Come out to Benjies Deli tonight to support the Lakers and watch them defeat the Hornets and advance in the playoffs. Enjoy a plate of our Kobe Beef Sliders and watch as Kobe Bryant beefs it up with the referees. Or, try out the Benjie Special, a hot pastrami sandwich and coleslaw with Russian dressing on rye, served with potato salad. Longing for something even heartier? Don’t forget about our famous corned beef and cabbage plate, the best Orange County has to offer!
If you are just feeling snacky, grab a drink at the Bamboo Lounge’s fully stocked bar. There are six large screen TVs and an abundance of space to seat all of your friends. Dunk into a tall glass of ice-cold draft beer, and score big with our corned beef, pastrami and Swiss cheese triple-decker sandwich as tall as Andrew Bynum. Feeling the team spirit? Share a deli platter, like the cold cut buffet or the 16″ ring sandwich tray, with your friends. With our deli platters, no one has to worry about ordering, they can just grab a sandwich while they watch their favorite team—the Lakers.
If you want to enjoy the game in the comforts of your own home, Benjies Deli can still help out with your catering needs–All of our deli platters are available for home parties too! Make sure you call 48-72 hours ahead to order before your event. That way you can have Benjies Deli do all the work while you relax and take all the credit. Benjies Deli makes entertaining at home easy and delicious. For catering inquiries and ordering, please call Benjies Deli at (714) 541-6263.
It’s March, and you know what that means—why, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, of course! We were just too impatient last month to hold our excitement in, but now the month of shamrocks, pots o’ gold, leprechauns (and Benjies Deli’s award-winning corned beef and pints of green Budweiser, too) is finally here. The best part is that Benjies Deli won’t just be holding a one-day St. Patrick’s Day celebration—no sir, we will be having a week-long bash starting Monday, March 14 all the way through Sunday, March 20!
Why on earth are we celebrating St. Patrick’s Day for a week? Well, why not? Why not partake in Ireland’s most celebrated holiday, where we can honor the country’s most revered patron saint? Or, just as importantly, why limit our customers to just one day of celebration? We would hate to see our customers have to wait in a jam-packed restaurant on March 17, so in order accommodate everyone, Benjies Deli will be holding the St. Patrick’s Day festivities for six days.
And, a bonus reason for celebrating St. Patrick’s Day is that the holiday is right before the first day of spring, and what better way to ring in the new season than with our famous pastrami and some matzo ball soup?
Come in during the week with your friends and take advantage of our big screens and full bar in the Bamboo Lounge. The Lakers are playing the Orlando Magic on Monday, March 14th, the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday, March 18th, and the Portland Trailblazers on Sunday, March 20th—watch the Lakers win while celebrating the Irish holiday with some hot corned beef and cabbage and refreshing green Budweiser!
The 2010 NBA Playoffs started yesterday, and Los Angeles Lakers fans will be watching to see if their team can take the championship again this year. One of the best places to watch the NBA Playoffs outside of Staples Center is in Benjies Deli’s Bamboo Lounge, located in Santa Ana.
Not only do fans enjoy the wide screen TVs and the full bar, but they’ll be eating the best pastrami sandwich in Orange County. Other menu favorites during sporting events include the Francheesy, a delicious combination of grilled knockwurst sausage, crisp bacon and cheese on a grilled onion roll and served with french fries and coleslaw. Although the food is so good it can make it hard to concentrate on the game, try the Coney Franks Platter or the Cold Rare Roast Beef Plate to eat while cheering on Kobe, Shannon, Lamar, Gasol, and the entire Lakers team. Stop by on Sunday for the Lakers game against the Denver Nuggets that starts at 12:30PM, or Tuesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, starting at 7:30PM.
Tonight is also Karaoke Night at Benjies’ Bamboo Lounge, so come on down to belt out your favorite tunes, enjoy a drink at the bar and something from Benjies extensive deli menu. We’re open til 1AM tonight!
