    Peruvian Empanada Resturaunt In San Marco




    Empanada Llama is a small local restaurant which has been open for 3 months located in San Jose. Owner Frassire Pezzia, a Peruvian woman who loved cooking, wanted to be a chef and later dreamed to have a restaurant. She wanted to create a spot where people can come in, sit and enjoy a friendly environment with the best service people in Jacksonville. Frassire thought that what Jacksonville was missing was Empanadas, and soon Empanada Llamas was born. 

    The empanadas served here are made from scratch. Some sides that you can get with your Empanadas are fried yuca, french fries, fresh salad, chips, sweet potato fries, soup of the day and more. A lot of the empanadas are based on Peruvian dishes that you would normally eat, like rice and potatoes, but which are made here inside an empanada instead. Meat and veggie empanadas are available. Drinks that are served with your meal vary from specialty drinks, soft drinks, coffee, hot tea, and smoothies.

    With the holidays coming up, Empanada Llamas will do seasonal flavors. They will add soup which you can get in a cup or bowl and salad. 

    Be sure to make it a point to visit Empanada Llama and grab a delicious empanada. You will not be disappointed!

    Legendary Rockers The Doobie Brothers Return To The Amp St. Augustine This Wedensday




    GRAMMY-winning rock and roll favorites The Doobie Brothers will return to The Amp St. Augustine on Wednesday, November 13, 2019. The Doobie Brothers last performed to a sold out crowd at The Amp in November 2016. 

    The Doobie Brothers have been delivering mind-blowing, roots-based, harmony-laden, guitar-driven rock and roll for more than four decades, selling more than 48 million albums and winning four GRAMMY® Awards. Boasting one of the most loyal fan bases in music, The Doobie Brothers continue to write and record new material and tour the world. Their No. 1 singles “Black Water” and “What a Fool Believes," both gold, lead a catalog of indelible songs that include: “Listen to the Music,” “China Grove,” “Jesus Is Just All Right,” “Rockin’ Down the Highway,” “Long Train Runnin’,” “Take Me In Your Arms,” "Takin’ it to the Streets,” “Minute by Minute,” “You Belong to Me,” “The Doctor” and more.

    Chart Topping Rock Group The Raconteurs Perform At The Amp Saturday




    The Amp St. Augustine is thrilled to welcome chart-topping rock group The Raconteurs in support of their new album Help Us Stranger on Saturday, November 9, 2019. 

    Semi-hibernating since 2011, The Raconteurs – Jack White, Brendan Benson, Jack Lawrence, and Patrick Keeler – took their time in 2018 and early 2019 assembling the cadre of killer songs that is Help Us Stranger, the band’s third studio LP and first new music in over a decade. As it’s always been, The Raconteurs feature Benson and White as dual frontmen/guitarists/lead singers/songwriters. The world’s best rhythm section of Keeler on drums and Lawrence on bass are in symbiotic shine theory lock step, both brought to the top of their game by the musicianship of the other. Early live performances have left no doubt in anyone’s mind: this band is savage. Bounding effortlessly between material off their 2006 debut LP Broken Boy Soldiers, their 2008 GRAMMY® Award-winning sophomore follow-up Consolers of the Lonely, and their recently-penned instant classics, even the most cursory look at the tea leaves delivers an undeniable fortune: The Raconteurs’ evergreen take on rock and roll is primed to reinvigorate the genre.

    2017 Total Solar Eclipse On August 21st




    On Aug. 21, 2017, people across the United States will see the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon. On that day, America will fall under the path of a total solar eclipse .

    A total solar eclipse occurs when the disk of the moon appears to completely cover the disk of the sun in the sky. The fact that total solar eclipses occur at all is a quirk of cosmic geometry.
