A surveillance review then detemined that the patron had received the bill about 90 minutes earlier from the same cashier. Classic Quotations A Story From The Past "Being a princess isn't all it's cracked up to be." Princess Diana "I was quite the spoiled brat. I have quite a temper, obviously inherited from my father, and I became very good at ordering everyone around. I was the princess; the staff was absolutely terrified of me." Lisa Marie Presley "You may be a princess or the richest woman in the world, but you cannot be more than a lady." Jennie Jerome Churchill "If you see me as just the princess then you misunderstand who I am and what I have been through." Mariah Carey "My generation had Doris Day as a role model, then Gloria Steinem -- then Princess Diana. We are the most confused generation." Erica Jong Don Pocher ATLANTIC Hall was purchased in March of 1839 by two brothers from Philadelphia. When Captain Benjamin McMakin and Captain Joseph McMakin bought it in 1842, the McMakin brothers had the New Atlantic built across Jackson Street. The Cape Island hotel surge continued with the construction of the Columbia House in 1846. The Columbia House was built by a Delaware captain named George Hildreth, on a massive plot of land between Decatur and Ocean Streets.

All of these issues completely sold out. Fortune Cookie Of The Week J "You are what you think about all day long." J ONCE a week, the folks at Exit Zero eat at Cape Orient, the island's fine Asian restaurant. Sometimes we find pearls of wisdom at the end of our meal. And sometimes we don't. The above fortune cookie was eaten with a Pu-Pu Platter. Please note: Any typos are not ours, but those of the fortune cookie manufacturers. We print them as we find them. hEnin The cone-shaped princess hat, called a henin, appeared in the mid-to-late 15th century, when height began to replace width as the dominant feature in women's headware. It appeared when the Gothic style still dominated architecture, and may be a reflection of tall spires reaching heavenward. Wednesday, June 8, 2011 Page 13 Ramblings From The Editors T'S easy to love Wawa... Good people serving good food and good coffee. However, it's difficult to love Wawa HQ. First of all, it was practically a crime to shut down the Bank Street location � does anyone else think that place could have been losing money? Seems hardly likely. Then they imposed draconian conditions on the sale of the property, preventing anyone else from operating a food and drink establishment. And now... Well, you can't even park there any more. The 14 spaces have been roped off and threatening signs erected: Park here and you will be towed. The reason? Construction work in the month of May? Well, May has come and gone, and those parking spaces went unused. What a waste! Getting anyone on the phone from Wawa was just as difficult as trying to get a straight answer from City Hall (see below), but we were informed it was a "liability issue." Really? The Wawa has been closed for two years � where was the liability issue then? It seems to us that Wawa are showing a distinct lack of community spirit. It would be fine if they had someone charge money for the parking spaces, like Swain's does. But to prevent them from being used... That's just bad form. WE'VE said it before, but it's worth repeating. Isn't it appalling that whenever we call City Hall to ask when those fiendish roadworks on Broadway are going to be finished, they always pass us on to Mott, the engineering company? Call us crazy, but we think City Hall should have a handle on matters such as this. Telling us that they have no idea when I Ideas, idle gossip, and occasionally important odds 'n' ends the works are going to be done is unacceptable. Actually, it's embarrassing. The fact that the roads were all cut up during Memorial Day weekend is a joke. It's not enough that the convention hall site is a mighty eyesore � let's throw in some roadworks on one of the busiest stretches of roads in the city. It's ridiculously difficult to get information from City Hall, and that has to change. We recently heard a lamentable story from a local business owner who was having a devilishly hard time trying to get a hold of either City Manager Bruce macLeod (Bruce, you need to stop hiding behind your desk) or Mayor Ed mahaney over an important matter that had serious ramifications for his business. This shouldn't be hard. This is America, not the old Soviet bloc. The people inside City Hall are public servants, paid by you. Would be nice if they acted accordingly. IT'S officially summer, dear readers, and what better time for a refresher course on Exit Zero photo etiquette? Our EZ photographers are all around town, snapping photos of happy visitors and locals enjoying all that Cape May has to offer. We would just like to point out a couple of things that would make life easier on your friends here at your favorite publication. Once in a while, we get a complaint that a reader's name has been misspelled in the paper. Please, please, please keep in mind that we have to work with what is given to us by you, the photo subject. When a little notebook is proffered by a photographer for you to sign your name, bear in mind that one of us staffers must then decipher it for publication ��sometimes easy, sometimes not. Now we realize, probably better than most folks, that sometimes in a dimlylit bar after a few cocktails, it's hard to keep one's penmanship in mind. But please try. And if you write "Superman" or "Lady GaGa," that's what we have to go on. Speaking of our talented photographers, we try to get them out to each and every event that comes to our attention, so give us a call, but try to give us as much notice as possible. And don't forget � your favorite EZ photo is available for sale, in color or black-and-white, and in three sizes: 4x6, 5x7, or 8x10. Give us a call with your credit card information and we'll make it happen � they make great gifts for out-of-town friends and family. THE West Cape May Strawberry Festival this past Saturday was a smashing success by all accounts, full of happy browsers and berry treats. rich flanegan remarked that it was "a really great day for everyone," and adds that his wife diane worked "super hard" to make it all happen. Thanks to Diane (and to all the shoppers who stopped by the Exit Zero booth)! We'll see you this time next year!

Fine food of northern Italy & world-class people-watching! This fine restaurant is now open for the season! They serve breakfast and dinner daily and lunch on the weekends. The Cape May location is now open on the weekends. They have great sandwiches as well as great coffee. Fine dining near the harbor. Elegant dining room, cozy fireplace, and the classic Clipper Ship Pub. Downhome cooking and a really friendly, laidback vibe are what you'll find in this gem of a place. Awesome nightly specials! "The local caf� with a wholesome aroma" is what they call it... and that's how we describe it. Very apt! An awesome burrito eatery with a beachy, oh-so-casual vibe and excellent food - great smoothies, too! A chic interior and stylish food, but the ambience is anything but pretentious. Modern American cuisine. Blue Moon is the latest addition to the ice cream scene. Blue Moon also has milkshakes, water ice, fruit shakes, pretzels and more! If your stomach is grumbling as you lie on the beach, if you need a late-night snack after a fun night at the bars... it's all here! Congress Hall's restaurant is better than ever, serving classic tavern food with a twist or two along the way. The coolest hot spot in town. The Boiler Room is where it's at for a cocktail and the music to dance it off. Cape May's living room is just the ticket when you want to relax with a beverage and great food.
