A.C. Cleanup Project Approved B By Pinky Kravitz

ELOW ARE EXCERPTS FROM A CASINO Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA) press release. On Monday, March 15, the CRDA approved the South Inlet Demolition Program, which targets unoccupied, derelict structures for demolition in an area bordered by Delaware, Maine and Melrose avenues and the Atlantic City Boardwalk. The program is a pilot for possible future demolition projects in Atlantic City. The CRDA has negotiated with representatives of the City of Atlantic City and Revel Entertainment to structure the investment and the program criteria. The program will be funded by $500,000 via a donation to CRDA by Revel as a pre-payment against their Atlantic City Housing Investment Alternative Tax obligations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The South Inlet Demolition Program is consistent with some of the suggestions heard in meetings held by [A.C.] Mayor Lorenzo Langford,â&#x20AC;? says CRDA Executive Director Thomas D. Carver. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many of the community and business leaders said that the perception of Atlantic City needed to be improved. This is a good first step.â&#x20AC;? In a description of the program and summary of procedure, it is explained that CRDA funds will be provided to the City of Atlantic City in two $250,000 installments. The second installment will be issued by the CRDA once the initial installment depletes to $50,000. Funds will cover such things as utility disconnection fees, demolition costs (permits, all on-site demolition, disposal, grading, etc.). It will not cover such items as unpaid utility bills, staff costs, legal fees and relocation expenses. The program requirements include a dedicated city staff and a start-up date within 30 days of the initial, demolition liens placed by the city, city-recovered funds returned to the CRDA within 30 days of receipt, mutually agreed-upon demolition priorities, monthly status meetings between the CRDA and city program staff, and all work competitively bid upon and awarded to qualified contractors. All of this is very good news to the city, as the demolition program is one that has been discussed for many years, but the financial wherewithal needed to get rid of the derelict structures in the city was never achieved. Hopefully additional funds will be found to attack the other areas within the community. This is the beginning of more to come from the committees that have been meeting to come up with ways of improving and beautifying Atlantic City, and bringing in more events for visitors and to the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents.

the one on Saturday, March 13, had 8,208 fans; and the championship on Sunday, March 14, was played before 7,882 spectators. The total for all of the events was 27,535 paying spectators â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the largest A-10 tournament crowd in five years. Without a doubt, there would have been several thousand more if we had good weather. Boardwalk Hall was certainly the place to be last weekend. Most of the colleges brought their school bands and cheerleaders. Each of the games was well played, and you could tell by the scores that the emphasis was on defense. For the third consecutive year Temple was crowned A-10 champions. The quality of the play in a marvelous arena where every seat was a good one provided an experience that had the people saying to one another after the games, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will see you next year in Boardwalk Hall.â&#x20AC;? Congratulations to all those who were involved in making the A-10 tournament the success that it was. By the way, that was the second consecutive, weekendlong sporting event hosted by Boardwalk Hall. First came the New Jersey High School Wrestling Championships. Next year the ECAC Hockey Championships will be held in the third weekend of March. Some of the ECACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 14 colleges with hockey programs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, Brown and others â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be coming to A.C. for their consolation and championship games. There will be two league semifinal games on Friday and the consolation and final game will be held on Saturday. The colleges have rabid hockey fans and they are looking forward to coming to Atlantic City for their marquee event. Steve Hagwell, the ECAC hockey commissioner, was here for the A-10. He said he is anxiously awaiting the opportunity for his league to have their championship determined here. This town should be booming in March 2011.

Notes of Interest

Good news for those living in the Enclave Condominiums in the Chelsea section of Atlantic City. While walking on the Boardwalk last week I saw a young lady climbing a ladder in the dormant, dilapidated pavilion on the Boardwalk at Roosevelt Place. I asked her what she was doing and she told me that she was taking measurements for architects. I later learned at a Boardwalk Committee meeting that the CRDA has hired an architectural firm for the redevelopment of that pavilion and that it should be rebuilt in time for the summer season. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to pass that information along to those of you whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been inquiring when the pavilion would be available for those who liked to sit there and enjoy the view of the dunes (the view used to be of A Successful A-10 Tourney the ocean) and those walking on the Boardwalk. Slowly but Last year at this time we were concerned about the surely, the upgrading of the Boardwalk will be done. n Atlantic 10 tournament remaining in Atlantic City.

SeaBlueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Supercharged Social Hour

Perhaps inspired by the popularity of Izakaya Mondays and Wine Down Wednesdays at Fornelletto â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Borgata culinary concepts that allow diners to sample small-plate menu items and cocktails at discounted prices â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Michael Minaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s SeaBlue restaurant recently joined the soiree with what it dubs the â&#x20AC;&#x153;SeaBlue Social Hour.â&#x20AC;? Happening every Wednesday through Sunday from 5-7pm, the Social Hour offers such cocktail concoctions as SeaBlue Sangria, the New York Sour, the Tangerine Cosmopolitan and the Pomegranate Martini for $8, and scaled-down appetizer and entrĂŠe items like ahi tuna tartare ($6), crispy calamari ($5), mini fish sandwiches ($7), and fresh oysters or clams for $2 each. All of SeaBlueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu items are made with fresh and/or organic ingredients. Its kitchen is under the auspices of Anthony Amoroso, a graduate of the Culinary Arts Institute of Hudson County (N.J.) College with a pedigree that includes having been Minaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive chef at Bellagio in Las Vegas. He also worked with two distinguished chefs and restaurateurs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Michael White and Rick Moonen. In a recent interview with, Amoroso described his culinary ideology this way: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Philosophically, less is more. You start to really hone in on what you like and what you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t notice what you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like until you have your sous [chef] doing specials and you realize theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done too much, and you start taking stuff out. It has to be cohesive.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ray Schweibert

This old-time blues three-piece has a new disc out that sounds like it could have been made in the 1930s. With elements of traditional folk, blues and American roots, the 13-track set includes mostly originals. A terrific take on vintage sounds with a slight modern touch. The boys have toured with Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Johnny Winter.

Cooking For The United Way

For the past six years, one of the biggest fundraisers for The United Way of Atlantic County has been its Auction for the Community. And this Friday (March 19), the charity will be spicing things up with some celebrity chefs and a legendary Flyer at Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the Traymore Ballroom. The chefs are Georges Perrier and Chris Scarduzio (pictured), partners of the acclaimed Mediterranean bistro Mia located in Caesars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the first time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had them and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the entertainment portion of the evening,â&#x20AC;? says Mary Godleski, of the United Way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing some demonstrations and then part of the auction will be a chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s table, where three couples will be served the food they prepare. But there will also be a table for samples from Mia for everyone.â&#x20AC;? The Flyer is Dave â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hammerâ&#x20AC;? Schultz, who proved himself an able auctioneer at a United Way charity golf event in October. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was great and we had to have him back,â&#x20AC;? Godleski says.

Oscars Lacked Stardust By Jerry Blavat


REETINGS AND SALUTATIONS. Tis the boss with the Hot Sauce — and lo and behold, whether you realize it or not, May is just weeks away, with big happenings coming your way. Soon, it’s on to the opening of our 39th season at Memories in Margate. And with the coming of Memorial Day, look for a new live Geator Gold broadcast straight from the Jersey shore on Cruisin’ 92.1. We’ll keep you posted — but now, let’s ask the Geator. We listen regularly on Saturday night and wish your show was longer. You mentioned a group from Harrisburg that you seemed to think was terrific, and you played a tune, “Just a Matter of Time.” Our research shows this song was charted by Brook Benton in February 1959. Can you tell us who the group was? — Denise L. Kurr, Camp Hill, Pa.

The group from Harrisburg is the Magnificent Men, one of the first white

groups to achieve a genuine black soul sound. However, the song I played by them was not “It’s Just a Matter of Time,” which Brook Benton made famous, but the now classic “Peace of Mind.” It does contain a similar lyric (“I know it’s just a matter of time, I’m gonna find peace of mind”), but is a completely different song.

AIN (AND SNOW) SEEMS TO have been the continuous bane of Atlantic City since last summer and the storm that blew through the region over the weekend may have been felt at the city’s poker tables, especially at Caesars’ World Series of Poker circuit’s main event. The event, a $4,900 + $250 No Limit Hold’em tournament, failed to break $1 million in total prize money coming in at $817,015. Still, despite the weather, the event attracted 174 entrants, from 20 states and seven different nations, according to the WSOP folks. Poker pro Roland Isra, 52, of New York, won the tournament taking home the $264,715 top prize as well as a $10,000 seat at the WSOP Main Event in July at The Rio in Las Vegas. Isra has had several final table appearances in major tournaments, but finally broke through for a win. He also had a cash (37th) at the 2005 WSOP main event. Isra won the top spot after facing down second place finisher Christopher Mitchell of Sumter, S.C., heads-up for about three hours. Mitchell, who suffered several bad beats at the final table, eventually lost to Isra’s two pair after missing an inside straight draw. He took home $138,894. The tournament was played over three days beginning March 12 and finishing up late Sunday. Among those who cashed was Paul Wasicka, perhaps best known as the runner-up finisher to Jamie Gold in the 2006 WSOP Main Event. Wasicka finished 12th. Another top pro who cashed was Jacobo Fernandez (14th), who enjoyed a huge year at the 2008 WSOP when he cashed seven times and made three final tables. Las Vegas pro Nick Binger also made the money, finishing in 17th place, according to the WSOP blog. Also, the circuit event’s second biggest tournament, a $1,500 + $100 No Limit Hold’em, which began March 10, was won by Thomas “Sandy” Taylor, a 27year-old pro from Ontario. He took home $89,570, winning with pocket fives. Though a good selection or pros turned out, the overall circuit event, which included 12 major tournaments, attracted a strong showing of amateurs who took more than their fair share of the WSOP rings given out to tournament winners,

especially in the early events. The winners list also showed that the tournament attracted players from throughout the East Coast, both south and north, and even drew some from out west.

This Friday, March 19, the Greater Atlantic City Jaycees and Atlantic City Weekly are having the 6th annual Top 40 Under 40 celebration at Borgataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s MIXX nightclub. I love this project and event because so many deserving people in our area will be recognized for the many things they do, including their contributions to their community as well as their leadership and entrepreneurship skills. As an honoree in 2008, I know that this honor has certainly changed my life and gave me a boost of confidence as I am sure this has done for many other past and current honorees. I want to say congratulations to everyone who will be honored because you all deserve it! n

are doing now to make sure you are living the life you want. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not, what can you do to start out on the right path? In life everything happens for a reason and life is too short to let it go by without doing what you love to do. However, you should strive to be someone who works hard and knows how to ask for what you want. The worst that can happen is someone might say no. If that happens, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be discouraged. Just say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh wellâ&#x20AC;? and move on. There is an old saying that asks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Who is rich?â&#x20AC;? with the answer being, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He who is satisfied with his lot.â&#x20AC;? This doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean to limit yourself and not dream at all, but just reminds us how important it is to appreciate what we have every day. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to ask for what you want and make your dreams a reality!

RE YOU IN YOUR DREAM HOME? Do you have your dream car? Do you have your dream diamond ring? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m guessing most of you said no, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK, we are all pretty much in the same boat. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny because I go to a lot of motivational classes and I learned a lot from working in the corporate world. One of the things that I always seem to hear is how we need to dream about what we want. When I worked in the mortgage world, many people ripped out photos from car magazines with their dream cars, or they would have a print out of their dream home or Rolex watch, whatever â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it would be staring them in the face every day at their desk. I guess it is a motivating factor for some, but that was never my motivation. My motivation was usually winning the daily contest, excelling in general or the thrill of being No. 1 that month in sales. Then I would attend seminars and the speakers would talk about envisioning your dream car, house, vacation, jewelry, whatever and the theory is if you put it out there in the universe then it will come to you. Well, here is some advice for all of you dreamers. This may come as a shock, but you need to stop dreaming and start waking up to reality. Working smart, knowing who you are, surrounding yourself with positive people, and networking efficiently are pretty much the keys to being successful and having all of those fancy things. Having dreams of grandeur, living the lifestyles of the rich and famous is all good and I am not saying itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad thing, but I am saying that if you are living in your dream world then you are not living in reality. Experts agree that if you concentrate on being the best in your business or raising the best family and making the world a better place then the good life will come. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be disappointed and will more easily accept what you get if your dreams of the good life are more realistic. Think about how you were raised. Think about what your parents sacrificed for you, think about how you will raise your children, and think about what you

Readers Weigh in Experience with Favorite Show The Newest In Video Poker S By David J. Spatz


Only At Harrah’s Resort

EVERAL WEEKS AGO, I answered my most frequently-asked question — What was the best show you’ve ever seen? — by not answering it because it would be impossible for me to single out just one performance. Instead, I cited two shows that had a lasting impression of the more than 6,000 I’ve seen during the past 32 years (Frank Sinatra in 1988, Paul McCartney in 2002). Then I asked you to chime in and tell me your best or favorite Atlantic City shows. Between responses to the column on the Atlantic City Weekly Web site, e-mails, messages sent to my Facebook page and even one from the produce aisle of the Somers Point ShopRite, I received a diverse crosssection of artists that reflects the broad demographic of people who live, work, play and visit Atlantic City. (By the way, if you’re not a Facebook friend, just search for “”). Here are a few comments that either piqued my interest or sent me on a trip down Memory Lane, with my occasional comments in italics:

to the traditional casino showroom fare, and it was an amazing sight — 60-some musicians, jammed onto the stage of the Superstar Theatre and performing under the baton of its world-renowned conductor, Zubin Mehta.

From “Joel”: “Sammy Davis Jr. with the Ringo Starr All Starr Band at the Grand wasn’t bad either.” Interesting, Joel. I saw Sammy at the Grand many times, both in the intimate Opera House and once in the outdoor venue. I also remember Ringo’s debut under the stars at the Grand, not only for the great show, but because Ringo was the first (and still the only) Beatle I ever met. But Sammy performing with Ringo’s band? I don’t remember Sammy doing a walk-on during Ringo’s show.

From “BeachBaby:” “No doubt about it, the most memorable show ever in Atlantic City was in 1983 when the Beach Boys performed on the beach on Independence Day.” Hard for me to argue against that, Baby. America’s Band, on America’s Birthday, in America’s Playground — with 300,000 of their closest fans jammed onto the sand. Thank you, James Watt! n

From “RunningOnEmpty:” “... the first time Jackson Browne performed in Atlantic City.” Again, another show at the old Grandstand Under the Stars. What made that one so memorable wasn’t so much that it was Jackson’s Atlantic City debut. Near the end of the show, From “TFM’: “... unlike you I can name 4,400 people got the surprise of a lifetime when the best — Glenn Miller’s big band. Jackson’s good buddy, Bruce Springsteen, casuSecond place — all the other big bands. ally strolled onto the stage and jammed with I’m 84 so [I] have a wealth of material to his friend. It was Springsteen’s first — and draw from. Best singer? No contest — The so far only — appearance on a casino stage, Voice (Frank Sinatra). I caught him in although The Boss has turned in a couple of killer shows at Boardwalk Hall. 1941 with Tommy Dorsey.”

From “Nathan B”: “The best show I ever saw ... was the New York Philharmonic at Resorts, late ’70s, I believe.” That certainly was a memorable musical moment in Atlantic City, Nathan. I’m pretty sure it was during the winter of 1980. Resorts was experimenting with alternatives Join us on Facebook:

From “Pete C’: “George Carlin when he made his comeback after one of his heart attacks.” LOL, Pete. I remember that one like it was yesterday. George hadn’t performed in about nine months, and he chose the Sands to ease his way back into touring. He came on stage with a handful of index cards — I’d never seen him bring written material onto the stage. And then he proceeded to deliver the single, funniest opening line I’ve ever heard from any comedian. Carlin being Carlin, I can’t repeat it here, but it had something to do with women who are anti-abortion.

the community. That leads to a little bit of pride that somebody (and sometimes several people) thought enough of you to put in your name. For some who knew they were nominated ahead of time (many nominators keep their identity a secret) they get a quick call of thanks. Then comes the call to mom/spouse/kids/ family and best friends to let them know. Now at this point, you might think that’s pretty much the end of it — a few handshakes, a little basking in the glow, your picture in Atlantic City Weekly, a pretty cool party at Borgata’s MIXX that all the honorees are looking forward to. It’s not even close. After six years and now 240 honorees, the prestige of the annual list continues to grow. And thanks to the Internet and social network sites, word starts to spread pretty fast. Then the congratulations start to come in. “I’ve received several e-mails congratulating me and welcoming me to the ranks,” says Stephanie Carr, director of education programs for Absecon Lighthouse. “But I was most surprised by the reactions on my Facebook announcement though. Lots of old high-school friends sent their wishes and kudos and it’s nice to know that those friends still care, even though I haven’t seen most of them in almost 20 years.” In fact, according to many honorees, winning a Top 40 Under 40 slot brings you into more contact with old friends than many of those class reunion sites. “They are all really excited,” says Nicole Zacchi, convention services manager for the A.C. Convention & Visitors Authority. “If you are a local, it is something that people look for every year,

and they have all been very excited.â&#x20AC;? Still, the word can get out in all kinds of ways. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a cousin who lives in North Jersey,â&#x20AC;? says James Hunt, an attorney with Slater, Tenaglia, Fritz & Hunt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She did not know about my nomination. She just happened to be at an Atlantic City casino for a trip, and she just happened to pick up the A.C. Weekly to flip through it. She was floored to see my picture on the cover page, and her and her friends got a big kick out of it. She took a bunch and distributed them to my whole family in North Jersey.â&#x20AC;? And more than a few people among those congratulating our nominees see a little humor in it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tell me my nose looks big in the picture!â&#x20AC;? says Shannon Wray, director of marketing & promotions for Equity Communications. (It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, by the way). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I received many congratulations via phone, e-mail, Facebook, and friends and colleagues stopping me on the street just to say they read the article and it is well deserved,â&#x20AC;? says Linda Bruckler, sales and

marketing manager for the Hard Rock CafĂŠ. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Of course there are those funny comments like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What?

It is such a beautiful resource in this thoroughly modern cityscape and I love encouraging friends and neighbors to take advantage of one of Atlantic City’s most treasured landmarks.” And for Gramlich, the first female firefighter in A.C., she hopes her award “sheds some positive light on the Fire Department” after some recent bad press. For the honorees, the award also means recognition, new contacts and a chance

to continue to shine in the community. “My career is still a work in progress,” says Kleiner of Local 351 and a Galloway Township Councilman. “I truly do not believe that there will be any obstacle I won’t be able to overcome or goal I will not reach with all the support I receive

Mediterranean Meets American Expanded Macedonian Grill touts more seating, more variety By Frank Gabriel PHOTO BY NICK VALINOTE


S ONE OF THE REGION’S FASTESTgrowing communities, Egg Harbor Township has attracted a number of eateries catering to the specific tastes — Indian, Asian and seafood among them — of those newly arrived residents. For Demitrios “Jimmy” Dounoulis, of Tilton Road’s Macedonian Grill, what the area lacked was a full-service, family restaurant offering customary Greek diner-type fare coupled with American favorites plus elements of cuisine from throughout the Mediterranean basin. Open just over a year at this current location, Dounoulis also has another Macedonian Grill in Brigantine, which celebrated its fourth anniversary last December. Originally from the northern Greek city of Thessaloniki, Dounoulis definitely states that the Macedonia referred to in his business name is of that region, not the independent country just above it in the southern reaches of what was once Yugoslavia. The Macedonian’s voluminous bill of fare is dotted with references to a homeland left 24 years ago. With members of his family previously owning restaurants in Norwalk, Conn., and Vineland, it seems only natural that he should follow suit. Alluding to the lengthy list of selections, he explains, “I do that because of the simple fact that I want everyone to be able to come to the Macedonian Grill. I have it all.” That includes “high quality strip steaks and filet mignons,” which he asserts are

the equal of many at fine steakhouses. It also means creative dinner additions, like their Grecian take on a southern New Jersey favorite, stuffed eggplant. Called Papotsaki (“little shoe” in Greek), this refers to the oblong vegetable’s appearance when split in half lengthwise. Packed with an herbed beef mixture the eggplant is finished with a classic, creamy béchamel. Calling Friday “a day of fish,” Dounoulis offers salmon Florentine; a dry-grilled fillet presented with sautéed onions, fresh spinach and feta cheese in a light, lemony sauce. Several other items pay homage to a Greek heroine, Queen Olga. A salad dedicated to the beloved former monarch contains spinach, iceberg, basil, black olives, tomatoes, red onions and feta with “Jimmy’s” balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

Casual diners will find a wealth of available options. The endless list of salads, wraps, sandwiches and burgers numbers well over a hundred. If you can imagine a conceivable combination of ingredients, the Macedonian probably already has it for you. All the familiar touchstones of Dounoulis’ ethnic background — olives, stuffed grape leaves, spinach pie, gyros, souvlakis, kabobs, saganiki (sautéed cheese) and tzatsiki (yogurt based sauce for dipping) — appear prominently as well. Sometimes in the most unusual ways. For example, one of the plates Dounoulis touts most is his high-protein omelet. Filled with the marinated lamb and beef blend that makes up gyro meat, plus feta cheese and roasted red peppers, he asserts foods like this omelet have been crucial in

helping him shed more than 100 pounds since opening this latest venture. A restaurateur eating well and still losing weight. Who’d of thunk it? Breakfast in general is a subject of great attention for Dounoulis, who says locals, “Don’t have to be intimidated by our name. If they thought they had great breakfasts at the old Greek diners, I’ve really elevated that.” Adding that his bill of fare goes, “around the world with a little bit of everything,” he mentions a Mexican omelet as another demonstration of diversity. It pairs sausage, tomato, onion and spicy peppers within the ovum, topped by a layer of salsa. Big news at the Macedonian these days is their recent expansion. Having taken over another retailer’s prior space to the left, they now have the ability to seat 76 patrons, the maximum allowable by Egg Harbor Township statue, according to the owner. This addition was necessitated by the restaurant’s early success. Dounoulis elaborates: “We lost a lot of business because we didn’t have the seating.” When referring to the restaurant as “family style” the 42-year-old father of five isn’t merely referencing a concept: he means it literally. Older brother Vasilios works alongside him in the kitchen as co-chef. Sister-inlaw Georgia, wife Jamie and their children; Michael, 24, Katerina, 20, Danielle, 18, Yiannoula, 17, and Eleni, 15, all serve in various roles. n E-mail Frank Gabriel at

OME ENDEAVORS THAT BEGAN super successfully later lost their allure due to complacency, but that’s not likely something the Atlantic City Beer Festival has to worry about. There’s an overriding sense that profit takes a back seat to customer satisfaction at the annual event, evidenced by the fact that the most popular of its three sessions — Saturday from 6-10:30pm — regularly sells out well in advance. That was the case nearly two weeks before the scheduled start of the fifth “Celebration of the Suds,” slated for March 20-21 at the A.C. Convention Center. “I must give Jon [Henderson] and the guys from [event promoter] Unsuited Entertainment credit,” says Gary Monterosso, who will conduct a halfhour seminar called “Beer 101” during each of the three sessions. “They honestly sat back at the end of each of the first four shows and looked at things very objectively, asking themselves what did we do right, what did we do wrong, and what can be improved? And there’s always room for improvement. “They’ve gone from a smaller room to a larger room, they’ve increased security, and one big issue was a long line of people waiting to enter the hall that was really rectified tremendously last year.” Bringing in hundreds of products and over 80 brewers from around the world, including about a half-dozen newcomers this year, is only part of the event’s appeal. There will be pipes-and-drums music by the Founders, the Animal House-like antics of the Toga Party Band, off-the-wall entertainment by the Olde

City Sideshow, mechanical bull riding, a creation by master sand sculptor Matt Dieberg, cooking-with-beer demos by Rocky Fino and Sheila Stepkin, and a “mustache lounge” that requires all who enter to be mustachioed. “If you decide to draw one on or wear a fake one, great,” says Henderson. “I actually ordered about 500 fake mustaches just for that.” Along with fine-tuning the festival’s floor plan to give attendees a bit more walking-around room, everything including the culinary options have been expanded. Several local restaurants will

was say, ‘Alright, let’s get some of the personalities behind the beers to show people how it’s done and answer questions, and let’s add lots of entertaining components to create a fun time.’ People have a hard time being a jerk when everybody’s having fun. When a lot of people are having a good time, hey, people end up getting married here.” That’s precisely what occurred among past festival attendees Chris Warwick and Erin Neary. “I have a place in Margate, and two of my daughters were down [from Palmyra] for the weekend to attend the beer fes-

Tony Boloney’s A.C. Pizzeria will be serving several beer-inspired pizzas at the festival. “The creation process was tough,” says Mario Dorazio of Tony Boloney’s. “It included going out to the bar with fellow co-workers, having 10 pizzas show-up, tasting them all, then drinking more. Just my kind of tough if you know what I mean.” “There’s so many different options for people this year, we had to really spread it out,” says Henderson. “It isn’t just a chance to sample new brews without having to buy a six-pack to find out if you’ll like it or not; it’s an entire entertainment weekend. What we [the producers] did

tival,” says Kevin Neary, Erin’s father. “My younger daughter met up with [Chris], whose dad used to coach her in soccer, and they eventually wound up getting married.” Brewers new to the festival this year include Ithaca (, Great Lakes (, High and Mighty (, Yards ( and Cape Ann ( Monterosso, producer of the Web site, will inform attendees of the essential differences between the two most popular types of beers — lagers and ales — during his free seminars. “Most of the craft breweries turn out exclusively ales, and the logic behind

that is that you can get one out on the street in about 10 days to two weeks,” says Monterosso. “Lagers, which comes from the German word ‘lagern’ meaning ‘to store,’ take about four to six months to produce. So from the standpoint of where some of these craft breweries are coming from — many of which are small mom-and-pop organizations — they want to get their product out on the street as quickly as possible, ergo you produce mostly ales. Yuengling is a powerhouse [located in Pennsylvania] known for their lagers, and now most of the breweries are starting to dabble in producing at least one lager to include in their portfolio.” Last year corporate executives from Michelob, an Anheuser-Busch subsidiary, introduced some of the brand’s experimental beers at the Atlantic City festival in an effort to get a handle on consumer preference. “Let’s face it, there are numerous beer festivals throughout the year and throughout the country — probably one going on every week somewhere,” says Monterosso, “and Anheuser-Busch has really thrown their support behind the one in Atlantic City. That’s the respect they have for a show like the one we have here. “Bringing in varying aspects of entertainment is an important element,” adds Monterosso. “Jon likes to put on shows and he’s very good at it. He’s good at finding and creating various types of entertainment and meshing them together. He’s definitely an asset to Atlantic City, and fits in to the culture here perfectly.” n see more online @




From ESPN to Comedy Central













Kathleen Madigan

Where: Trump Marina, A.C. When: Saturday, March 20, 8pm How Much: $30

Kathleen Madigan sticks to her comedic guns, does Trump Marina Saturday By Ed Condran


ONSIDERING THE PLIGHT OF the newspaper industry, perhaps Kathleen Madigan chose wisely when she left her post as a features reporter during the late 1980s for comedy. “I worked long enough as a journalist to realize that I really didn’t want to be a journalist,” Madigan tells Atlantic City Weekly. “There had to be something else out there for me.” Madigan, 44, gave comedy a shot 21 years ago and by 1990 it was her occupation. “I didn’t get paid a lot, but when you’re just out of school you don’t need that much money,” Madigan says during a telephone interview from her Los Angeles home. The St. Louis native didn’t give up journalism entirely. She scored a gig as an ESPN 2 reporter in 1991. The emerging sports network was so impressed with her wit she was offered a gig as an anchor the following year. “I was like, ‘Wait a minute,’ I’m supposed to move to Bristol, Conn., [ESPN homebase] for just $28,000 a year?’ I also don’t love all sports. I’m not into college football or NASCAR. That wasn’t the job for me. I found the right job.” Indeed. Madigan, who has appeared on The Tonight Show and Late Night With Conan O’Brien, is an inveterate stand-up. Madigan, who will perform Saturday, March 20, at the Trump Marina, will Join us on Facebook:

crack wise about religion, politics and pop culture. “I voted for Barack Obama, but I wasn’t a big backer like my sister, who is 10 years younger than me,” Madigan says. “She was like, ‘C’mon, vote for Barack, don’t you have any hope left?’ I told her that I lost hope for this country when American Airlines stopped giving out pillows. If I had been one of those rabid Obama backers, I would be a little ticked off. When you look at who he’s picked, it’s the Clinton administration again. Is this really change?” When Madigan isn’t performing in America, she’s doing USO shows in the Middle East. “It’s nothing like the military commercials when you see what the soldiers have to deal with in Afghanistan,” Madigan says. “No American soldier is fighting a dragon. Afghanistan makes Iraq look like Las Vegas. They show you the tent where you sleep and the tent where you go to the bathroom. I wanted to know where the tent was where you quit.” But Madigan is impressed with the transformation of Iraq since America invaded in 2003. “We’ve built hospitals, roads and given jobs to people. If it were a show, it would be called Extreme Country Makeover. I think America should invade Detroit. We should get everybody out of there, bomb it and make a new Detroit and everyone would be happy.”

Madigan is happy that she recently graduated to the theater/casino circuit. “I didn’t want to have a boring old job working in the office with the same old people and situations everyday,” Madigan says. “But it started becoming a bit predictable playing the same clubs in Omaha and Cleveland. But now I’m playing a lot of

places I haven’t been to before and it just makes it interesting for me. I’m playing new venues and I have new jokes.” The affable Madigan also has a new gig. She is toiling as Dr. Phil’s special correspondent. The quirky humorist hits the streets and has fun with unsuspecting people. “It’s a fun job,” Madigan says. “It’s just one more good thing to happen to me.

But it’s been a succession of good things that have happened to me since I’ve made comedy my career. There are obvious risks when you become a comedian. But isn’t there risk with just about everything that you do today? I would rather take the risk being a comedian than working for some company that will terminate you out of the blue. Comedy has certainly worked out for me. I have no regrets.” Madigan is amazed at how different the comedy landscape is today. “It’s dramatic how it is now compared to when I started,” Madigan says. “It’s the same for society. There were no cell phones or Internet back then. But as far as comedy, you went on Johnny Carson and boom, you were headlining Las Vegas. There were just a few channels and everyone was watching those channels. Today there are hundreds of channels. There are so many outlets to showcase what you can do as a comic. But you’re not performing in front of an audience like you would have been during the Johnny Carson era. It’s more of a marathon than a sprint today and I’m fine with that. But a lot of other comics aren’t fine with that and they quit. They want a normal life, a family. They look at other options. Once I got into this, there were no other options for me. This was it and I’m so glad I stuck with it because I couldn’t imagine doing anything else.” n see more online @

Mr. Clean













Brian Regan

Where: The Borgata, Atlantic City When: Saturday, March 20, 8pm How Much: $43.50

Brian Regan may be one of the cleanest comics out there, but he’s also one of the funniest. By Jeff Schwachter


RIAN REGAN’S RISE TO FAME came slowly. He spent the aspiring stand-up’s mandatory time doing cramped clubs and small festivals across the country until breaking through big-time in the mid-1990s. His stand-up act around that period would eventually be captured on a Comedy Central special, thousands of Internet sites and a live CD. It was around this time when Regan’s hilarious bits like “You Too & Stuff,” “The Eye Doctor,” “Food Combinations” and “The Donut Lady” could be heard pouring out of dorm rooms and from behind office cubicle walls across our comedydependent nation. Over the past five years or so, Regan’s star has continued to rise, selling out theater tours — since 2005 he’s visited about 80 cities a year — releasing a pair of Comedy Central DVDs — Brian Regan Standing Up (2007) and The Epitome of the Hyperbole (2008) — raising a family and appearing on numerous late-night TV shows, all while doing what he loves: coming up with “goofy things.”For his second interview with Atlantic City Weekly — he spoke to us right before the first of his four Borgata appearances back in 2006 — Regan called from Las Vegas, right before a five-night stint in Salt Lake City.

I just watched ‘The Epitome of the Hyperbole’ and the ‘Dora the Explorer’ bit was great. You have two kids, what other kid shows are you into? Ever see the show ‘Kipper’? Oh yeah. Do I have the right theme song? [Starts singing the theme song] Kipper ... da, dah, dum ... It’s a bit jazzier: “Kipper the dog. The one with the slipper, that’s Kipper. Kipper the dog.” [Laughter] You know if your main character is Kipper, you know the word “slipper” is going to be in the theme song. It’s almost a given. ... You know there must have been a deadline. [The songwriter] must have said, “They said they wanted this theme song at noon and I got one lyric that I just can’t nail down. Let me send in this version and see if it flies.”

M A R C H 1 8 , 2 0 1 0 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

Right. Like the song “I’m the Map” from ‘Dora.’ Yeah. [Starts singing the song like he does on his DVD] “I’m the Map, I’m the Map, I’m the Map, I’m the Map.”

You’ve appeared at the Borgata a few times over the past four years or so. The Borgata’s always a fun place. It’s a wide kind of room so you have to really kind of work it, you know? You got to walk way over to the right, and walk way over to the left, and you’ve got to come up with jokes that have to do with width. You have to go, “Hey, what’s the deal with the wingspan on the Wright Brothers first plane? I mean that wingspan went from way over here to way over here! You’ve got to utilize your space.” People love you as a comedian and you’re always working. Do you find there’s a pressure on you to keep churning out new

following among pot smokers.” I’m like, “Wow, thanks man.” And then he put his head back down and shuffled off into the sunset. It was really cool. I was like, “Wow, alright. I didn’t know I had the pot-smokers out there. I got them now.”

Not to put down your comedy, but I guess anything could be funny to a pot smoker. Right, you could watch Gunsmoke and laugh for an hour! Hey, I’m the Gunsmoke of comedy!

That could be a good name for your next DVD: “The Gunsmoke of Comedy.” [Laughs]

On your current tour, you have five nights in Salt Lake City, but only one night most other places. What’s the deal? I tend to work clean and I think because of that — obviously there’s a large Mormon community in Utah and Salt Lake City in particular and they’re partial to that kind of comedy. It came as a surprise to me a couple years ago. I had never even performed there and I was getting comments on like my guestbooks, you know? “Hey, you should play Salt Lake City!” And I was like, OK, let’s book a show there and see what happens. Next thing I knew — material? it was very flattering. I was like, wow, these people seem Well, I don’t feel it as a pressure because I just naturally to like what I do. So I’m cool with it. If they are, I am. like to think about goofy things. And so, anytime I’m doing a show I have one or two brand-new or relatively What’s your favorite Atlantic City Boardwalk moment? new things that I’m kicking in — I mean from night My favorite Boardwalk story, it’s a true story, there was to night — and every time you add something, somesome kind of little arcade thing there, you know? This thing falls by the wayside, and it just seems kind of is years ago and I’m walking around and they have this natural that after about a year and a half or two years little arcade game where you throw these balls into a you get kind of a turnover. [So] when people come basket and there are these big stuffed animals behind back out, hopefully they’re going to see a bunch of the guy. And there’s a sign that says, “Put two out of stuff that they didn’t see the previous time. three balls into the basket and you win a big stuffed animal.” So I go, OK, I’ll give it a try and I put the 50 cents Does your 11-year-old son get to watch your comedy? I mean it’s down and they give me three golf-ball type of things. I pretty family-friendly. threw the first one and the first ball went right through Yeah, he does, but — I know that there are kids out there the basket and I was like, whoa, I only need one more! who are even younger than my son who like my comedy, Second ball hits the basket and bounced out. The third and that’s cool for me, but I want my kids to think of me one, I tried to throw it like the first one, and boom! It as just Daddy, you know? And maybe there’s also this went into the basket! I’m like, I got myself a big stuffed deep-rooted fear that if I did put something on and [my animal. So the guy reaches under the counter and hands kids] are like, “Oh, brother this is what you do Daddy?” me this stuffed animal that — and I’m not joking — was That would crush me, you know? about five inches long and he throws it on the counter and goes, “There you go.” And I say, “No, no, no! The Speaking of the crowds out there, what’s one of the strangest or most sign says that I won a big stuffed animal.” And he goes, memorable meet-and-greet experiences you’ve had? “Yeah” and he points to the little thing. “Yeah, that’s Oh, there are just all kinds of bizarre things. I came out the big stuffed animal.” And then he points to the ones of a restaurant one time and this longhaired guy with up behind him and goes, “Those are huge.” his head down, just kind of shuffling along, was on the sidewalk. And this guy just walked right passed me and [Laughter] How do you win a huge one? doesn’t even look at me. He walks about 10 feet, I’m [Laughter] I don’t know. I guess you have to hit like 500 in not even really paying attention other than the fact that a row or something to win one that’s huge. And then I look he stopped, turned around, walks back to me and then at the huge ones and they were like bolted into the walls he looks up and he goes, “Dude, you’ve got the hugest behind the guy.

War Games

‘Ghost Writer,’ ‘Green Zone,’ share common theme of politics during wartime. By Lori Hoffman


HEN I WENT TO SEE ROMAN Polanski’s Ghost Writer and Paul Greengrass’ Green Zone, I thought they would be totally different film genres that didn’t have much in common. I was wrong. Polanski’s quietly effective thriller set in an off-season Maine coastal town, and Greengrass’ weak action picture/message movie hybrid set in Iraq just after the invasion in 2003, are both devoted to the theme of political maneuvering during wartime. Both want to deliver a message about men in power whose secret policies are carried out not just to protect innocent citizens, but also to keep the powerhungry politicians in power. Polanski’s film provides the added bonus of intriguing characters and an interesting story wrapped around his polemic. Greengrass appears to care only about the message and doesn’t bother to provide compelling filmmaking to make his message palatable. Polanski’s film is based on a novel by Robert Harris that the author adapted for The Ghost Writer HHHH Directed by Roman Polanski; rated PG13 Green Zone HHHH Directed by Paul Greengrass; rated R

the screen. Ewan McGregor stars as the titled character, a man who is hired to finish a ghost-writing job for the former prime minister of Great Britain, Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan), who has written his memoirs. The previous ghost writer turned up dead, by accidental death or suicide. This makes the new ghost vaguely uncomfortable, but the money was too good to pass up. He is also uncomfortable about the breaking news that the former PM allegedly allowed terrorists to be illegally tortured under his watch. Angry peace protesters feel that Lang was a puppet of the United States and that their soldiers are still paying the price. As the Ghost (we are never told his name) continues his work on the book, he comes across some clues that suggest the previous writer might have been murdered. His curiosity and desire to find the truth leads him to a man (Tom Wilkinson), whose possible CIA ties expand his uneasiness and realization that he might be in danger. Polanski delivers his message about power and corruption in a subtle, engaging way, with performances that enhance his storytelling and deliver his message with a wry, humorous edge. The excellent storytelling makes Ghost Writer an effective vehicle for Polanski’s political statement.

Ghost Writer

Dead ‘Zone’

There is a classic cliché about Hollywood filmmaking: “If you want to send a message, use Western Union.” Nobody under the age of 40 knows what Western Union is, but here’s the point — you need to engage the audience in the movie’s story if you want the message to have an impact. With Green Zone, director Greengrass and star Matt Damon are the lure to trick us into the multi-plex; the movie is being sold as a new collaboration by the team that brought us The Bourne Supremacy and The Bourne Ultimatum.

idea was to convince moviegoers that despite the Iraq setting, this was going to be an action picture. Instead, it is a movie about the politics that led to the continuing war in Iraq. Yes, a lot of Americans are not happy about the fact that there were no weapons of mass destruction, but if you are going to make a movie that is designed to be entertainment, make it entertaining. If you want to make a movie to present your point of view in such a heavy handed manner, interview the real people involved and make it a documentary. Instead, Greengrass and screenwriter Brian Hegleland, who adapted a book by Rajiv Chandrasekaran, have taken some facts and created a tedious fictional version of those facts. It will give you a headache as it hammers home its message — that when politicians do bad things, like cover up the fact that were no WMDs, it is the soldiers on the ground and the civilians caught in the middle who suffer. I had a horrible thought as I watched this lousy film: now there is one thing that Glenn Beck and I will agree about. n
