T THE END OF THE DAY, organizers of the Miss’d America Pageant really aren’t doing anything different with their tongue-in-cheek drag show than the creators of the Miss America Pageant did 90 years ago. They’re staging an event designed to boost tourism in Atlantic City. But where Miss America was merely looking to extend the summer season for a week beyond Labor Day, the Miss’d America folks have a more targeted goal. “It’s all part of taking a proactive stance to promote Atlantic City as a gay-friendly destination,” says Miss’d America executive producer Richard D. Helfant, who also serves as president of the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance. Traditionally held the night after a new Miss America is crowned, Miss’d America features a half-dozen drag queens competing in the usual pageant categories, including evening gown and talent. The show was created in the early 1990s by former Atlantic City Councilman John Schultz and his partner, Gary Hill, and held at their old Studio Six nightclub, once considered the epicenter for gay life in the city. But when the Miss America Pageant left town six years ago, it signaled the end of Miss’d America, too. The departure of the venerable beauty pageant and scholarship competition cut deep into Atlantic City. Last year, though, the local GLBT Alliance decided it was time to bring the classy drag show back to life. With the backing of several casinos and the support of the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority, the event was booked into the Boardwalk Hall ballroom, whose 1,200 seats makes the venue six times larger than the old nightclub pool deck where the event was originally held. Contestants were selected, a few production numbers were thrown together, TV personality Carson Kressley was recruited to help host the show, and more than 1,000 people came to watch as a new Miss’d America was tearfully and cheerfully crowned. The event raised over $30,000 for charity. Openly lesbian comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer will host Sunday’s pageant (see p. 38) along with veteran entertainer Bob Hitchen, who’s been performing under the nome de stage Sandy Beach for years. Hitchen is also writing, producing and directing the show. The pageant’s theme will be “Boardwalk Empress,” a spoof the Atlantic City-centric HBO series Boardwalk Empire. Eight contesJoin us on Facebook:

tants were picked from around the country to vie for the Miss’d America crown. Like many, Helfant never wanted to see either pageant leave. But when Miss America packed her bags and shuffled off to Vegas six years ago, many local people felt betrayed and there was too much resentment to continue to spoof Miss America. “The [Miss America] pageant has been gone long enough so that the sting is gone,” says Helfant, who not only was a Miss America volunteer but who also volunteered his time and talent to help Miss’d America grow.

Last year the classy drag show was brought back to life. Putting the event in Boardwalk Hall’s ballroom was a key to resurrecting Miss’d America, Helfant says. “If we did it anywhere else, it just wouldn’t have worked,” he explains. “Putting it in [Boardwalk Hall], we were able to play off the slogan ‘the crown is coming back.’” Proceeds raised from ticket sales to Miss’d America will be distributed to five charities and non-profits, Helfant says, including the National Gay and Lesbian Taskforce; South Jersey AIDS Alliance; Broadway Cares, Equity Fights AIDS, the Schultz-Hill Scholarship Foundation and the Atlantic City GLBT Alliance. When Miss’d America was created in the early 1990s, the Miss America Pageant wasn’t thrilled with the event. There were often veiled threats about lawsuits, and the drag show was considered off-limits to Miss America contestants even though their pageant had ended. But the Miss America Organization was forced to become a little more accepting after Kate Shindle, whose pageant platform was HIV/AIDS awareness, was crowned Miss America 1998 — and showed up the following night at the Miss’d America Pageant.

Sister Jean Embodied Year-Round Spirit of Giving

The holidays are when most people give of themselves to others, but it was that way year-round with Sister Jean Webster, and it recurred unabated and without much fanfare for a quarter century. What began with the kindly gesture of serving a homeless man a hot meal in 1986 evolved into a year-round crusade, catching the attention and support of several civic groups that helped Sister Jean feed and clothe thousands of the less fortunate for years. It started in her Atlantic City home, took up residence at A.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Presbyterian Church as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sister Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen,â&#x20AC;? and grew to meet the needs of more than 400 people per day. Her reluctance for personal publicity likely masked the fact that for years Sister Jean dealt with cardiac problems, and on Monday afternoon, Jan. 10, her compassionate heart gave out at the age of 76. Her death was confirmed in an Associated Press report by the Rev. John Scotland, pastor of the Brigantine Community Presbyterian Church (BCPC) and longtime president of the Friends of Jean Webster. The BCPC oversees two Sister Jean benefactors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the True Spirit Coalition and the Crossroads Youth Group. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My daughter [Ani] and other kids from Crossroads did volunteer work at Sister Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s,â&#x20AC;? says Brigantine resident Kim Hayes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and she said it made her realize how we often take for granted things like a hot meal, and how many people there are out there who need the help of others.â&#x20AC;? David Spatz, an Atlantic City Weekly columnist and Emmy Award-winning TV host, taped an episode of Curtain Call at Sister Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen when singer Tony Orlando was in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On our list of memorable shows, a holiday special [producer] Jake [Glassey Jr.] and I produced on the fly when Tony Orlando visited Sister Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen is near the top of the list,â&#x20AC;? says Spatz through Facebook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jean was tough, she was a character and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; aging and in poor health for years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she stood up to drunks and drug addicts who towered over her. But when Tony broke into an impromptu medley of Christmas songs, Jean was right there singing along with him.â&#x20AC;? (See photo gallery at acweekly.com) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ray Schweibert

MLK Awards, Nelson Johnson on Jan. 14

Atlantic County will honor two of its citizens on Friday, Jan. 14, at the 24th annual MLK Commemorative Birthday Celebration at the County Office Building (1333 Atlantic Ave., Atlantic City). County Executive Dennis Levinson will present the awards, which are given out annually to commemorate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday. The two individuals are being honored for their upholding Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s principles â&#x20AC;&#x153;through their involvement in the community and their efforts to improve the lives of their fellow citizens.â&#x20AC;? States Levinson: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Atlantic County is fortunate to have the benefit of these extraordinary individuals who share a commitment to promoting peace and tolerance among todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s youth so that they may build a society where all people are truly equal.â&#x20AC;? The recipients are Dr. Jacqueline McBride, of Egg Harbor Township, and Atlantic City native Turiya S. A. Raheem. The latter was featured in an HBO documentary regarding Boardwalk Empire and is the author of the terrific book, Growing Up in the Other Atlantic City: Washâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the Northside. Speaking of books and Boardwalk Empire, the program will also feature a keynote address from Atlantic County Superior Court judge Nelson Johnson, author of Boardwalk Empire and the newly released The Northside: African Americans and the Creation of Atlantic City. As the release sent out by the county puts it, Dr. McBride is the founder of Love, Peace and Prosperity International and the Atlantic County chapter of â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Season for Nonviolence.â&#x20AC;? She also was the first female emergency manager in the state and currently serves as a Disaster Assistance Reservist for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Raheem is writer, volunteer and teacher who teaches at Atlantic Cape Community College and volunteers with Bridges, a local interfaith group, and Sisters Together Against Racism (S.T.A.R.), an affiliation of the American Association of University Women. She also contributes to a writing workshop for youth at the Atlantic City Free Public Library. She graduated from Atlantic City Hish School in 1972. The program starts at 11am. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeff Schwachter

O IN G THIN G S Y O U SHO ULDN â&#x20AC;&#x2122;T DO C AN create a strong sense of excitement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially when you get away with it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perhaps how it was when Prohibition was in effect. That 13-year period when alcohol was outlawed in the United States, 1920 to 1933, probably made the parties at the speakeasies, and places where bootlegged booze flowed freely, even more fun than after the law got repealed. This Saturday night, Jan. 15, you can get a taste for what that era might have been like at the Chelsea hotel. CJMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Enterprise Ltd., the father and son entrepreneurial team of Michael and Cyprian Jennetta that created the MissInkAmerica.com pageant, will host a retro cocktail party to celebrate the 91st birthday of the start of Prohibition, which officially took effect at MissInkAmerica.com pageant is slated for Sept. 10 (or midnight, Jan. 16, 1920. 9/10/11) at the House of Blues, and will again highlight attractive women sporting body art and vying for the title of MissInkAmerica.com. Since it started three years ago, the MissInkAmerica pageant is structured similar to the Miss America pageant. Its purpose is to â&#x20AC;&#x153;encourage tolerance before forming an opinion,â&#x20AC;? primarily where it applies to acceptance of women with tattoos and body art. Prior to the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s start, there will be a casting call for any women interested in participating in the An authentic, Prohibition-era atmosphere will be pageant from 8-9pm at the Chelsea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be a good night,â&#x20AC;? says Jennetta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be replicated, reminiscent of the time when Nucky Johnson ruled Atlantic City and Al Caponeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reign something different. Instead of going into a loud club over the underworld was in its infancy. Those in where itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to talk, you can come in and mingle, attendance are encouraged to dress the part, and meet people, network a little bit, and then maybe hit prizes will be awarded for the best-dressed male and the dance floor a little later.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Chelsea feels itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect Prohibition-party female guests. The party will also include a gala redcarpet entry, dark liquor specials, old-fashioned photo fit, as its design harkens back to an earlier, classic era,â&#x20AC;? ops, and will segue into the Chelseaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regular Saturday says Patrick Logue, general manager of the Chelsea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fun concept for Atlantic City, as the spirit of night dance party at the C5 nightclub. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch a lot of TV and havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Prohibition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the teetotalers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and A.C. are the height really gotten hooked on the show [HBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boardwalk of irony, as A.C. is the quintessential party town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This concept party is exactly the type of special Empire], but my dad and others have been talking about how cool it is, and I love the fact that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s having an event all of Atlantic City can embrace, accentuating the impact on putting a national spotlight back on the city fun and creativity of a Prohibition party with booze, and helping to bring it at least a little bit of positive not tea, amongst the backdrop of A.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dynamic entertainment scene â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including gaming, of course,â&#x20AC;? adds national attention,â&#x20AC;? says Cyprian Jennetta. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to keep [the party] simple â&#x20AC;&#x201D; guys dressed Logue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visitors to A.C. increasingly long for specialup in their gangster suits and fedoras, and girls dressed event driven programming and concerts to participate as flappers in their best â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s getup, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be in as a unique seashore amenity, and as part of the a social mingle that turns into a dance party later in overall Atlantic City experience, knowing that gaming the night when [Chelseaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nightlife manager] CJ opens is now omnipresent.â&#x20AC;? N up the nightclub. So our guests will have the option of either mingling in one of the separate rooms at the Prohibition Cocktail Party Chelsea or heading out to the dance floor, or going back Where: The Chelsea, Atlantic City and forth and maybe switching speeds a little bit.â&#x20AC;? When: Saturday, Jan. 15, 9pm The party will feature live, era-apropos music, and How Much: $10 (free admission flyers at Tony Boloneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) guests will include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inkmatesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; past and future Web: MissInkAmerica.com MissInkAmerica.com pageant contestants. The 2011

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a fun concept for Atlantic City, as the spirit of Prohibition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the teetotallers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and A.C. are the height of irony, as A.C. is the quintessential party town.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Now that Wesley Snipes is in jail for three years, who will replace him in Spike Lee’s — Tina film biography of James Brown? Spike Lee promised that he would wait until Snipes’ tax problems are over to do the film because there’s no other actor he wants in the role. It could be a great comeback role for Snipes when he completes his sentence, which he is now appealing. By the way, it will be James’ singing voice you’ll hear in the film —

Ladies Night

ALKING TO BRUCE PEARLMAN, who took over as Poker Room manager at The Tropicana in August, a few things become clear very quickly. First, Pearlman has spent a lot of time in casinos. Second, he has a lot of ideas for the Trop poker room. And third, he is always thinking about his players. “It’s the simple things that the players are looking for,” he says. “They want to be comfortable. They want things to be easy and they want to have a good time. That’s what you focus on first.” It sounds almost like a cliché, but Pearlman, who started his casino career as a dealer, comes from the player’s side of the casino. “My first job in the industry was in 1980 and I was a blackjack dealer,” he says. “And since then, I’ve dealt every casino game this city has seen. Whenever anything new comes along, I’m up for it.” He started in poker before the famous 2003 Chris Moneymaker win at the World Series of Poker catapulted Hold’em into the national spotlight and started a poker craze that hasn’t cooled since. “Where you really saw the difference was in the amount of young people playing the game,” he says. “Especially online. The game right now is dominated by young players.” Pearlman, however, takes over one of the city’s oldest poker rooms. With more than 40 tables, the room holds up well against the city’s big boys, the Borgata and the Taj Mahal. But as casinos in Pennsylvania and Delaware have added poker rooms, the competition for players has become even more intense. Pearlman, however, looks close to home to find his player base. And we mean close. “We have four major residential complexes within walking distance of the casino,” he says. “That’s where it starts. Even in bad weather, we know we have built up a relationship with those players.” Still, Pearlman is thinking of new ideas to keep players coming to the Trop. He outlined plans for a new take on Pai Gow poker, new poker room promotions and even the administration of a secondary bad beat — a scheme where players getting a specific hand, such as three, eight in the hole, that hits two pair, but loses to quad fours, hits a jackpot. “Some of this is gimmicks,” Pearlman says. “That’s what people say about the

bad beats, that they’re just gimmicks. But people also like these things. They bring some excitement to the floor and make things a little more interesting.” Pearlman, however, isn’t relying just on gimmicks, but also service, which is key among an ever-growing field of competitors. Of all the city’s casinos, the Trop is the only one that posts its table service food menu online. He has also moved to reduce room rates for players and simplified parking vouchers for players. “You take a little thing like parking,” he says. “But as a player, I know how annoying it is to have to look for coupons or get some paperwork you need. Now, our play-

Pearlman has a lot of ideas for the Tropicana’s poker room. ers just hand their card to the attendant and they’re done.” Like we said, it’s the little things that count. And as a new player in town, Pearlman hopes to take the Trop’s room far. “For me, when the numbers come out, I’m just looking at the room right ahead of me,” he says. “That’s who I want to catch. Eventually, I want this to be the No. 1 room in the city, but we’ll take it a step at a time.” In another story, Atlantic City took a major step forward Monday in the online gaming race when the New Jersey state Assembly approved a bill to allow Internet gaming in the state. Any such gaming would clearly center on online poker. Of course, there’s still a complicated mess of legal issues, but New Jersey has beaten states such as California to the punch by passing the legislation. The bill now goes to Gov. Chris Christie, who has 45 days to sign the bill into law or veto it. The bill is part of a package of bills sent to Christie to help the city, and would allow Internet gambling through Atlantic City casinos, but limit it to New Jersey residents. Federal law currently bans online gaming, but supporters of the N.J. bill say the ban does not apply to intrastate gambling. There’s a good bet a court will have to sort that out, but at least New Jersey is at the forefront of the issue and forcing some decisions. N

HER E AR E SO M E P E OP LE WHO are more than just their profession, they are more than the gifts they’ve given, they are larger than life itself, and the good they’ve done will live on well after their physical bodies have left us. No one I have ever met embodies the idea of being larger than life than local father, business owner and man of the people, Omar Anderson. Like the rest of Atlantic City, I was stunned and deeply saddened on New Year’s Day as I heard the news that Omar had passed away in his sleep. Omar Anderson was the co-owner of Omar and Abdullah’s Hair Bazaar, Atlantic City’s second oldest barber shop. He was far more than a business owner to the city he loved, and the people of the city who loved him back will mourn him for years to come. When I think about Omar, the first word that always comes to mind is “inspirational.” We are the same age and I remember how young Omar was when he and his younger brother Abdullah opened their shop. It was inspiring to me. I had not at that time in my life ever considered going into business for myself, and had no interest. Here I sit, 20 years later, and I recall that Omar and Abdullah were my hairstylists/barbers for my first venture into television. In fact, it was scheduling problems that kept me from writing about the shop’s 20th anniversary in this column a while back. When I could, I would talk to Omar about the fact that so many shops had come and gone in the 20 years since they started. If you were to ask 25 different people about Omar and the shop, you would likely get 25 different answers — all of them good and probably very funny. The shop, throughout the time that Omar ran it, has been a great neighborhood meeting place — a place where little kids would come to sell candy and local people of all classes came to talk, greet the people and get their hair done. During the last mayoral race, incumbent Mayor Lorenzo Langford and Councilman Marty Small met in the shop to have a debate. The mood was serious, but Omar could also be counted on for delivering a joke, sympathy when warranted, or straight talk if that’s what was called on that day. I can remember Anderson just trying to explain to a young man why his thinking wasn’t all

the way right, when other people would not have cared enough to argue and fuss with the person. That’s what I’ll always remember about Omar, that he truly cared. No one other than my own brother was more proud of what I have been able to accomplish than Omar Anderson. Every time I stepped in the shop he would literally make an announcement, “Ladies and Gentlemen! We have Atlantic City’s own Raymond Tyler in the shop today. He’s a writer for Vibe, The Source and AC Weekly. We listen to him every Sunday morning on The Touch!”

I always thought we would have all the time in the world. He would then start talking about the next live show I had coming up, and fuss at me because he wanted me to produce a radio show live from the barbershop. Even writing this is hard because I fully intended to do that show “when time permitted.” I always thought we would have all the time in the world. I have to say I felt uncomfortable when Omar made those announcements when I walked in the shop. However, he did that for everyone who was doing something special with their lives. He would tell me as I sat in his chair, “The people need to hear that, Ray.” Omar Anderson, I really wish I would have understood at the time that it was about the people, and not us. And I wish I could sit in your chair and fuss with you about careers, business, politics, and share the love, too. You are leaving a hole in our community that won’t ever be filled. And you will never be forgotten. ÊN

into steak â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Brits call it â&#x20AC;&#x153;triangle steakâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or slowly braised. With all those things going for tri-tip, we hope someone will embrace and offer it in 2011.

WAS BORN EARLY IN JANUARY, so each year at this time I make fervent requests of the food gods for upcoming months. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the stuff of my dreams for 2011.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ghostâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chiles

Tri-tip gained fame in central California for being slow roasted whole over red Oak.

Cold temps call for chiles.

Tri-tip Roast This piece of beef, a triangular shape taken from the bottom sirloin, is often difficult to locate. We found it early in 2010 at Northfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tilton Market, although it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been available the last few times weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve inquired. Tri-tip gained fame in central California for being slow roasted whole over red oak, and is referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Santa Maria style BBQ.â&#x20AC;? Doused with a liberal layer of salt, pepper and garlic, the two- to three-pound hunk of meat is full of beefy flavor but lower in fat and cost than almost any comparable cut. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s versatile, too, equally delicious sliced

Readers of this space know we have love for chiles of all shapes, sizes and capsicum levels. Nothing makes us happier than seeing the expanded use of these beneficial fruits on local menus. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delicate, incendiary Thais, smokey poblano/anchos, devilish cousins habanero and Scotch bonnet, or the now commonplace smoked jalapeno or chipotle, we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough. Just when we thought it was safe to go back in the kitchen, armed with flavor profiles of what we knew as the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest peppers, there turns out to be a new sheriff in town. Referred to erroneously to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;ghost chile,â&#x20AC;? it is actually called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;naga jolokia,â&#x20AC;? and is native to northern India and Bangladesh. Registering a blistering more than one million Scoville units, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly twice as fiery as the hottest Red Savina habanero (translation: a million glasses of water would be required to dilute its essential oil). Wrinkly in shape and smaller than a jalapeno, this orange-red pepper carries a serious admonition from Digonta Saikia, one Indian farmer interviewed by MSNBC: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you eat it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like dying.â&#x20AC;? I think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in love. Perhaps some daring local chef will toss a sliver into his hot sauce and fry up some wings? Ă&#x160;Ă&#x160;N

WHITNEYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RADAR

Dating Dynamics By Whitney Ullman

W

HILE LAYING LOW THIS PAST weekend and watching some movies, I came across a documentary about dating and relationships. The psychology behind the way people act has always been intriguing to me, especially when it comes to the interaction and intricacies of being part of a relationship. Lately Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been hearing dating horror stories from friends, and although some are quite comical, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still sad to know that there are so many single people out there who just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to find their perfect match. With so many online dating sites at our fingertips, you would think it would be easy to search through profiles to see who best meets our needs and wants. But on the contrary, although the Internet is instant, it is also very impersonal. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if someone is really like the way they describe, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if the picture they posted was from 10 years ago. But we have to take the information for what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth and

We also need to look within ourselves and know who we are so we can effectively communicate what we want and need to potential suitors. And remember that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t control other people; you can only control what you do and how you act. make our decisions from there. A big problem with new relationships, A big problem, which the doc touches from a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point of view, is the fact upon, is that we tend to take our experi- that we share a lot of information with ences from past relationships and use our friends. Almost too much, to the point them against the person in our new relationship. Rather than having knowledge, learning from your past and figuring out how to make your future better, we wind up taking out our frustrations and emotional baggage on someone who is starting with a clean slate. Bottom line: You have to give people where they start giving their input and a chance. opinions as to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for you, and Another key factor is stereotyping. We before you know it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing things tend to say all men do this or all women that make them happy and not doing do that. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not true. For instance, unlike things that make you happy. And to that a common perception, there are plenty same point, you may complain a lot to your of guys out there who are gentlemen and friends about what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not getting from there are plenty of women who arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your mate, but at the same time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not â&#x20AC;&#x153;high maintenance.â&#x20AC;?

yourself and realize your strengths, weaknesses, faults, good traits, etc., then you can move forward in the dating world and hopefully meet the love of your life. If you are currently dating, make sure you have proper communication so you can learn more about one another. If you are single, put yourself out there, introduce yourself to someone who catches your eye and, most of all, be open to meeting people who suit your needs and desires rather than just physical attributes. Best of luck and success in your dating endeavors! N

Showroom Variety Atlantic City casinos open 2011 season with pageantry, musicals and a mystery. By Lori Hoffman

W

ith all the doom and gloom about the recession’s effect on Atlantic City’s bottom line, we sometimes forget that tourists don’t care about profit margins. They will continue to flock to Atlantic City to have a good time, and Atlantic City has never lost its edge when it comes to providing entertainment versus the other East Coast gaming establishments, in particular the Pennsylvania casinos. While the top-tier headliners usually book their A.C. stays during the spring and summer, that doesn’t mean the town’s showrooms are dark during the winter months and into early spring. Atlantic City showrooms have traditionally turned to revue shows in the first few months of the new year, and 2011 is no exception.

Tropicana Showroom, Jan. 16 to Feb. 26. Opening week showtimes: Sun. 7pm; Mon. 8pm; Tues. 3:30 & 8pm; Wed. 3:30pm, and Sat. 9pm. Tickets are $25. Hilton Theater, February 17 to April 3. Showtimes: Thurs., 8pm; Fri. 9pm; Sat., 8pm and Sun., 3 and 7pm. Tickets are $29.

• Le Ombré: Seasons of Love Harrah’s Resort Concert Venue, Feb. 1120. Showtimes: Thurs.-Sun., 8pm. Tickets are $25, $30 and $35.

• Cirque du Soleil’s Alegría Boardwalk Hall, April 6-10. Showtimes: Wed., April 6, 7:30pm; Thurs., April 7, 7:30pm; Fri., April 8, 3:30pm & 7:30pm; Sat., April 9 at 3:30 & 7:30pm; Sun., April 10, 1 and 5pm. Tickets range for adults $35 to $79; children (12 & under) from $28 to $64; military, seniors and students from $31.50 to $67.50.

showroom style of tables and chairs. If you’re a regular patron at the Tropicana’s Tango’s Lounge, you might be wondering where Tango’s popular entertainer Marc Antonelli is these days. The talented young singer has earned a promotion, and will be working upstairs in the Tropicana Showroom with a show titled Marc Antonelli: From Unknown to Irresistible from Jan. 16 to Feb. 26. It will be his second shot in the big room after his One On One With Marc Antonelli played there this past October. Antonelli says that his new show is much bigger than his first headliner gig. “It runs the gamut

of musical genres from Frank Sinatra to songs of the greatest tenors of our time — Mario Lanza, Luciano Pavarotti, and Andrea Bocelli,” he says, adding that Broadway hits from Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera will also be on the musical menu and that, “Broadway dancers and background vocalists enrich the experience. The show is versatile, hip, and, at times, edgy.” Over at the Hilton, the casino is bringing back the classic variety format with Boardwalk Follies, Feb. 17 to April 3. The show will feature a revolving cast of performers, beginning with illusionist

Michael Turco, a regular in town with his show Wonder. The show will also feature the Aerial Sisters with their aerial stunts, singer Jacklyn Maffucci and the Boardwalk Follies Dancers. Harrah’s has reached out to the West for its show at the Concert Venue. Le Ombré: Seasons of Love, Feb. 11-20, presents a cast of world-class performers who combine acrobatics, contemporary dance and traditional shadow art using their silhouettes projected onto a large screen. Stanford Le, vice president of marketing for Harrah’s Resort, says, “The producers of Le Ombré have created several unique and energetic shows in Las Vegas; this was a chance to bring a different style of high quality show to Atlantic City at Harrah’s Resort.” Wrapping up the music and pageantry April 6-10 at Boardwalk Hall will be the return of a Cirque du Soleil production for the first time since 2006. Cirque du Soleil’s Alegría has entertained more than 10 million people worldwide since its world premiere in Montreal in 1994. According to the Cirque du Soleil Web site, “Alegría is a mood, a state of mind. The name means ‘jubilation’ in Spanish … Kings’ fools, minstrels, beggars, old aristocrats and children make up its universe, along with the clowns, who alone are able to resist the passing of time and the social transformations that accompany it.” n

Cirque’s Up: Cirque du Soleil (pictured) returns to Atlantic City with ‘Algeria’ in April. Over at Bally’s Palace Theater, the showroom will present an interactive show, Big Al’s Murder Mystery, Jan. 15-17. It won’t be the first time a casino has presented a show that gets the audience involved directly. Showboat presented Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding and Finnegan’s Wake in 2007. Now Bally’s will try out an interactive murder mystery set in a 1920s speakeasy, Murder at Big Al’s, from Kathy Reed Productions in association with the locally based Melanie Rice Entertainment. “They are re-inventing Bally’s as a 1920s, Boardwalk Empire-esque venue and a request came to put a 1920s style show in the Palace Theater and see how it does,” explains Rice. “Hopefully, this show will work for them long term in the summer.” A smaller scale version of this same show was presented previously for a high roller event. The appeal of this style of show is that a lot of it is improvisational. “There is an outline for what will transpire but how it transpires is unique [for each show],” says Rice. The Palace Theater has been reconfigured in the old-school casino

LEGGY LADS 2010 Miss’d America

By Michael Pritchard

The Miss’d America Pageant goes 1920s gangster drag for its return to Boardwalk Hall.

h, the sacrifices that have to be made to put on a good drag show. Just ask Robert Hitchen, stage name Sandy Beach, who again is writing, producing and performing in the Miss’d America Pageant Sunday (Jan. 16) at the Boardwalk Hall Ballroom. Like many things in the resort these days, the annual drag queen competition, that was reborn last year, has been touched by the Boardwalk Empire mania that has held sway in the city since the HBO show premiered in September. So last week, there was Hitchen, head to toe decked out as “Knockers Johnson,” filming the opening skit for this year’s pageant on the beach. Other characters were Lucy Luckyano and Ally Capone, possibly the first time some of America’s most famous gangsters — Charles “Lucky” Luciano. Al Capone, Enoch “Nucky” Johnson — have been given the drag treatment. “Let me tell, you,” says Hitchen. “It was cold. I’m out there in a sleeveless blouse and I’ve never been so cold in my life. And it was an hour and a half shoot. But we wanted to open with a spoof of the show. It spoofs scenes that actually happened in the show.” And it will also mark a much more ambitious and scripted show than was seen at Boardwalk Hall last year.

Not that last year’s show wasn’t a winner, but ever since the Atlantic City GLBT Alliance brought back the venerable Studio Six tradition, the show has been on a roll. For the uninitiated, Miss’d America has a storied and treasured past, tied deeply to the city’s once beloved institution, the Miss America Pageant. Started in the early ’90s at the nowdefunct Studio Six nightclub by owner John Schultz, the drag show was the culmination of the Miss America weekend in the city. A simple little nightclub promotion for pageant personnel and fans still in town the day after the pageant grew into a tradition as revered as “show us your shoes” or Miss America scandals. But in 2005, Miss America left Atlantic City (eventually relocating to some little cow town in Nevada) and so did Miss’d America. That is until the alliance stepped in and resurrected the show in 2010. The response was terrific as the GLBT quickly gained casino sponsors and the support of the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority. Carson Kressley of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy signed on to host and Hitchen took on the writing and producing, choreographing production numbers even as he battled a hernia and health problems. The production was staged on its tradi-

tional date, the day after the Miss America Pageant, and raised $30,000 for charity. This year, there was no place to go but up. The first step was to find a new group of contestants, all of which are professional performers as female impersonators. “The way we expanded this year is that we did a much more thorough search for contestants,” says Rich Helfant, president of the GLBT Alliance. “We were looking for applicants from all over the whole country. We took out advertisements in gay publications such as The Village Voice and The Washington Blade. We have contestants from New York and Washington and we even had a contestant from Los Angeles, but she cancelled at the last moment.” The eight remaining contestants are all professional performers, with stage names such as Kitty Hiccup, Victoria Venom and Gusty Winds. Since all are professional performers, it gives Hitchen a chance to really put together a themed, and expressive show. “Basically it’s a play that is happening in two places,” he says. “The past and the present. The show goes back and forth into the ’20s, and then comes back to the present. “Boardwalk Empire and the ’20s is a great theme and it fits in nicely with a drag show. “But it is challenging,” Hitchen adds. “It’s not easy to create a show like this, but

I think we’ve got some great numbers.” Not the least of which is a closing salute to Atlantic City as images from the resort’s past are flashed on stage. “It’s a love song to Atlantic City,” says Hitchen. The show has also brought in a new host, comedian Suzanne Westenhoefer. Openly gay, Westenhoefer is a frequent performer in the city. “She’s a sweetheart” says Hitchen. “This is going to be a lot of fun with her.” Already, ticket sales for the show are ahead of the pace set last year when about 1,000 people attended. “You have to remember that we sold the most tickets at the door [last year], nearly 400,” says Hitchen. “So this is very gratifying.” Helfant says that hopes for the show are limitless. “Our ultimate goal is to someday operate much as the Miss America Pageant operates,” he says. “We’d like to have local pageants and then state pageants and then finally the national competition in Atlantic City.” Hitchens thinks that day may come as well. “I can see it getting really big some day, and being nationally televised. Then I’ll be pushed aside like Bert Parks,” he laughs. Now, now, Knockers Johnson would never allow that. n

Legends of Hip-Hop III

Where: House of Blues at Showboat, A.C. When: Saturday, Jan. 15, 8:30pm How Much: $39.50-$49.50

After more than 20 years EPMD still means ‘Business’; duo appears in Atlantic City with Busta Rhymes, MC Lyte and more for the ‘Legends of Hip-Hop III’ show. By Jeff Schwachter

of rapping, EPMD’s tunes popped right out of the box. But EPMD, like fellow rappers in their sphere, Craig Mack, Biz Markie, Erik B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, and even Run D.M.C. (who EPMD toured with early in the duo’s career), didn’t come out of nowhere. They had to take in hip-hop shows to get their live set down. They got help from local DJs to learn how to “build” and record their songs. And it was hearing Public Enemy on the radio one day that had a huge impact, as Sermon tells WaxPoetics: “I was with Craig Mack at my grandma’s house when ‘Public Enemy No. 1’ came on the first time. We had no idea about making a record,; we was just listening to the radio. These records influenced us before we were even rapping, really. People think that we all came out at the same time — probably did the with the albums, but as far as singles, they was already popping off.” Prior to EPMD’s proper debut album, the duo recorded the single “It’s My

In an interview with WaxPoetics, Sermon says, “We just made feel-good music. While New York [City] was sampling James Brown, our stuff was laid back to bump in your cars. Barbecue stuff. We didn’t know what we was doing. But Long Island had that. When you hear [Eric B. & Rakim’s] ‘Check Out My Melody,’ you turn up the bass. And that’s where we came in. We were able to coincide with that, and De La [Soul] with ‘Potholes in My Lawn’ or LL Cool J’s ‘I Need a Beat.’” The All-Music Guide describes Strictly Business as being “simply amazing, a killer blend of good groove and laid-back flow, plus a populist sense of sampling that had heads nodding from the first listen.” EPMD sampled music that many of their contemporary rappers didn’t touch at the time, such as records by the Steve Miller Band, ZZ Top, Zapp, and other rock and classic rock songs. This gave EPMD’s music a truly unique sound and, blended with the pair’s no-bullshit monotone style

Thang” in 1987. Legend has it that the song was put down in just three hours by Sermon and Parrish, who had been working together musically on and off since 1985. The single was later licensed to the Chrysalis label, and then EPMD was signed to Sleeping Bag/Fresh Records. Then came Strictly Business and its plethora of strong singles, many of which could be heard blasting out of cars all over the East Coast and eventually beyond. EPMD’s 1989 follow-up, Unfinished Business, also went gold and then EPMD signed to Def Jam, which released 1990’s Business as Usual and 1992’s Business Never Personal. Although Sermon and Parrish came out of the suburbs of Long Island — a fact that would be shouted out during several of EPMD’s songs — their strictly-business attitude, monotone style of rapping, hard-core dissing of “sucker MCs” and extraordinary rhyming and rapping skills definitely had an influence on much of hip-hip that followed, including the West Coast’s gangsta style of rap, which would take off following the release of the southern California rap act NWA’s 1988 ground-breaking album Straight Outta Compton. Two decades later, hip-hop has changed significantly in all aspects of the game. Sermon, one of rap’s chief architects during its golden era (1980s to early 1990s), along with partner Parrish, remains humble about the impact EPMD has had on hiphop (at least during interviews; in songs it’s a different story). As Sermon explains in the WaxPoetics interview (which was conducted by writer Jesse Serwer during 2008), “With EPMD ... nothing was planned. Everything just happened. ...Whatever happened was just like, God-blessed miracle stuff. No setup. We didn’t have no struggle, none of that. This was destined to be. Nothing more, nothing less.” Hearing “Strictly Business” live — like on Saturday — or even listening to the song (especially on vinyl) is probably something everyone should do before they die. And let’s not leave out that EPMD’s co-headliners Saturday night are not too shabby either. C’mon, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth? MC Lyte? Busta? Just the names bring me back to my high school days. n

ne of the greatest underground hip-hop acts of the late 1980s and ’90s, EPMD returns to “Business” (again) as part of the Legends of Hip-Hop III show at the House of Blues at Showboat in Atlantic City on Saturday, Jan. 15. Joining the New York-based Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith (EPMD: Erick and Parrish making dollars) will be other “legends” of the hip-hop world — Busta Rhymes, Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth, MC Lyte and Kid Capri. More than 20 years ago, the Brentwood, Long Island, team of Sermon and Parrish made huge waves with EPMD’s first album, entitled Strictly Business. The 1988 record went gold and was followed by several more classic rap records from the pair, including 1989’s Unfinished Business, 1992’s Business Never Personal, 1999’s Out of Business and 2008’s comeback We Mean Business. But it was the fresh sound (in more ways than one) of EPMD’s debut album that made such an enormous impact on hip-hop music both at the time and for decades to come. The album, aside from including such classic cuts and driving anthems as “You Gots to Chill,” “It’s My Thang,” “I’m Housin’” and the raw, groove-heavy title track that sampled Bob Marley’s “I Shot the Sheriff” to terrific effect, featured many firsts in hip-hop. As a recent article in the magazine WaxPoetics puts it, as evident on EPMD’s first album, Sermon and Smith “were perhaps the first rappers to bring a distinctly suburban mentality to hip-hop without sacrificing the music’s raw, hood appeal. And before the West Coast and the South could claim rider music as their own, the pair was one of the first rap acts to make music seemingly tailor-made for the car, sampling only the hardest funk and rock breaks on their landmark ’88 debut.” Although EPMD had further success following Strictly Business, and were pretty pumped about their 2008 comeback album, which followed a few years of bad blood between the duo, 1988’s Strictly Business has become not only a classic in the hip-hop world, but for many who were teenagers or a tad older at the time it first hit the streets, just hearing the opening title track can bring back waves of good memories.

‘Country Strong’ shamelessly piles on the clichés By Lori Hoffman

B

e fo re we c om m en ce w i t h this review, I want to inform you that I am a big fan of country music, so this assessment is not coming from a country music hater. That said, I’m a film critic first and beyond enjoying a lot of the music in Country Strong, it had me cringing. The people who hate country music could use Country Strong as the prime example of why they can’t stand it. The plot is like a bad country song that just wants to pile on the heartbreak and the clichés. But even if you travel the same path as previous movies, you can make it work if the characters walking the line are compelling. In Country Strong, written and directed by Shana Feste, those characters are stick figures without an emotional connection. Gwyneth Paltrow stars in Country Strong as Kelly Canter, a country music legend of Reba proportions who has slipped into the abyss of alcohol addiction and is tryCountry Strong  HHHH Written & directed by Shana Feste; rated PG-13

ing to get clean in rehab. Unfortunately, she is doing about as well as Lindsay Lohan, including having a fling with an orderly, Beau (Garrett Hedlund), a budding country singer-songwriter. Kelly’s husband/manager James (Tim McGraw) pulls his wife out of rehab

The title track put Paltrow on the country singles chart, but otherwise the movie is utterly forgettable. prematurely to get her back performing, a move calculated to make him seem like a jerk and Beau as a nice guy who really cares about her. That’s the idea, but basically Beau is taking advantage of a vulnerable woman to further his music career no matter how many times Feste tries to show Beau’s loving, compassionate nature with dewy-eyed close-ups. Much like her husband, he is using Kelly as a meal ticket. Tossed into this mix is Chiles (Gossip

Girl’s Leighton Meester), another budding singer-songwriter who allegedly has talent, but can get rattled in front of an audience. A former beauty queen contestant, she takes it as a compliment when Beau tells her she looks like a country Barbie. These are the satellites whirling around Kelly, who can’t get a grip on her life as the booze beckons and she tries to mount her comeback without much enthusiasm. Still shattered by the death of her unborn child after an alcohol-related accident, she is not ready to get back to work but there would be no movie if she didn’t try. The music is the only saving grace in this film, in particular the title track which showcases Paltrow’s considerable singing ability. It seems like an awful waste to make a country-music film costarring Tim McGraw and not have him sing, although he does have one song

on the soundtrack. Unfortunately, the character he is asked to play is strictly a one-note cardboard cliché and McGraw, who does have acting skills, can’t salvage the role. Paltrow has her moments, in particular a scene where she visits a young fan with cancer, but like the rest of the cast, she is handicapped by dialogue that is so banal, even an Oscar-winning thespian can’t bring it to life. Country Strong’s title track might have put Paltrow on Billboard’s country singles Top 40, but otherwise the movie is utterly forgettable. n
