Even though the Lakers are out of the playoffs, Benjies Deli still loves them and we want to thank them for the past three seasons of amazing plays and games. They have had a great run, and they will always be our favorite team. Go Lakers!
The Lakers may be out, but that doesn’t mean that the playoffs aren’t still going on (even though we know the Lakers were definitely a main attraction of the playoffs for many basketball fans like ourselves!). Come join Benjies Deli and catch the Heat versus the Celtics. Will Rajon Rondo still make amazing plays even with a dislocated elbow? Shaquille O’Neal finally made his postseason appearance after suffering from a sprained calf, but will the injury hinder him? Of course, our eyes are on Miami’s Dwayne Wade and Lebron James! And don’t forget about the Bulls versus the Hawks; the series is currently tied at 2-2, and Atlanta definitely has made quite a step up to keep Chicago’s star guard Derrick Rose from dominating. Needless to say, the playoffs are heating up!
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.
