PINKYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

Projects in the Works By Pinky Kravitz


HERE WAS A POSITIVE REACTION TO LAST weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column relative to the Atlantic City Regional Transportation Plan (ACRTP), which was presented to the public in May of last year. If you read the column, you learned that there was progress on about one third of the 20 projects that had been unveiled 11 months ago. As a result of that column, information was provided to me to update you on most of the remaining projects. Several of the projects are interlinked. This means that if you start one, others will surely begin thereafter. Here are the objectives of the ACRTP: â&#x20AC;&#x153;to provide improvements when and where needed with timely delivery; to support the regional economy, with an emphasis on Atlantic City and the Atlantic City International Airport (ACY); to incorporate land use in the execution of projects to support communities; to employ traditional and nontraditional financing mechanisms to ensure the timely implementation of projects.â&#x20AC;? The following will provide you the â&#x20AC;&#x153;triggerâ&#x20AC;? projects that will be followed by the projects they trigger. The first two triggers relate to the expansion of ACY. First. the construction phase there is about to begin. The other trigger is the Next Gen Aviation Tech Park project where workers have begun the road network. This will result in a direct connection from the Atlantic City Expressway (ACE) to ACY. In May 2011 there will be all-electronic tolling on the ACE that will trigger several projects. The engineering work is currently underway and should be completed in three to six months for new signage on the ACE, the Atlantic City entranceway, and the Atlantic CityBrigantine Connector. It will also result in the easing of the traffic flow on the Albany Avenue corridor and traffic improvements on Michigan Avenue. In addition, the current plan is for new traffic signals for two-way Pacific and Atlantic avenues. If there eventually becomes a need for one-way Atlantic-Pacific avenues, the traffic signals could be adjusted. The work on the Albany Avenue corridor will lead to changes at the intersection of Winchester and Albany avenues. The engineering for that work will start within three months. It will also lead to discussions between the Department of Transportation and the U.S. Coast Guard as to the timing for the openings of the Albany Avenue bridge. This will be adjusted so that the bridge will not open during rush-hour traffic. Lastly, the Revel Entertainment Hotel-Casino complex has triggered the widening of Connecticut Avenue and plans are ready for construction. Obviously, all of those who have been involved in the ACRTP have been busy at work over the past 11 months. However, they have been publicly quiet as to their accomplishments to date. I am pleased to be the first to provide this ACRTP update. This program will not only provide jobs but, when completed, it will enhance the transportation experiences of those coming to what I hope will once again become the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Playground of the World.â&#x20AC;?

No Vehicles on Boardwalk

Mayor Lorenzo Langford recently issued an executive order stating that there would be no vehicles on the Boardwalk with the exception of Public Works trucks, police supervisors and emergency vehicles. Public Works director Paul Jerkins agreed that all of his departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trucks should use the nearest ramp for egress and ingress to the Boardwalk for the work they need to do. They should not be using the Boardwalk as a street to reach the area where they need to do work. Regarding the cleanliness of the beach, Jerkins stated at a recent Boardwalk Committee meeting that Atlantic City only has two raking vehicles to cover six miles of beach, and that it cannot be done as well as he would like it to be. Ventnor City has four rakers for a one-mile beach. These machines are quite costly and the budget does not include funds for additional ones at the present time. Jerkins said he would attend future Boardwalk Committee meetings and he looks forward to continued cooperation with those looking to improve Atlantic City.

Sharing a Readerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thoughts

Regular readers of this column know that I seldom share e-mails that are sent to me. However, the one below comes after attorney Lloyd Levinson and I discussed a certain topic on my radio show last Tuesday. The woman wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just about every week we go to the casinos in Atlantic City, both on the Boardwalk and in the Marina. We do enjoy A.C., but after visiting Las Vegas a few weeks ago, I have to say there is no comparison as to the feeling of excitement and energy that you experience when visiting there. Also, employees we encountered in any casino there were very friendly and welcoming, and I mean everywhere we went. It was quite noticeable to us that in general â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not all cases â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the employees in A.C., especially the cashiers, slot attendants and a good part of the toll takers, are very unfriendly. They either do not acknowledge your presence when dealing with you, or they scowl at you for the most part. It was such a culture shock to me especially, because as a former North Jersey resident I feel that South Jersey people are so friendly, and they are, but not at the casinos. Could it be signs of the economic times? Are they really that unhappy? My husband and I certainly couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get away with such an attitude at our places of employment. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who else to tell this to, but felt it was important for A.C. Sorry.â&#x20AC;? I hope many casino employees have read the above note, and that they give it some serious thought. n

Since the publishing of his book The Greatest Generation, which chronicles and examines the Americans that fought and lived through WWII, the trusted former NBC anchorman Tom Brokaw has become the voice of a generation. Sunday (May 2), Brokaw will continue that work when he appears as the keynote speaker at the 21st annual Stainton Society Brunch at the Borgata in Atlantic City. The Stainton Society is the largest fund-raising organization for Shore Memorial Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Somers Point) Health Foundation, which supports facilities and programs at the hospital. Though the brunch is only open to Stainton Society members, there is still time to get a seat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want people thinking that a ticket to see Tom Brokaw is $500,â&#x20AC;? says Bill Elliott, spokesman for the hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Actually, that membership fee is a donation to the hospital and the brunch is a way of us saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thank you.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Elliott says Brokaw was the perfect speaker for the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 70th anniversary year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were founded right on the brink of the war and it was the greatest generation that built this hospital,â&#x20AC;? says Elliott. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to honor that generation, which we are losing members of every day as time passes. Judging by the response weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had, with more than 800 RSVPs, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen the right speaker,â&#x20AC;? says Elliott. To make a donation to the Stainton Society call 653-3800 or visit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Pritchard

All Decked Out

Warmer weather’s on the way, and outdoor decks overlooking the water will soon be the place to be. By Ray Schweibert


ITH THE HARROWING WINTER WE JUST had, seldom before has the approach of warm sunshine, sand, surf and sipping cool drinks by the water looked more inviting. If you’re fortunate enough to live by the water’s edge you’ve got it made in the shade. Otherwise the best way to enjoy the latter gratification is by seeking out the many localities that have outdoor decks attached to their businesses. Many of these places allow access by boat and many also complement the dining/socializing scene with live music. Below are a few soon opening for the season that you might consider checking out. Starting north and heading south, the Laguna Grill Martini Bar (266-7731) in Brigantine has a semi-enclosed tiki bar attached to its main restaurant that is hugely popular in warmer weather. It is located right on the beach at 14th Street South and the ocean, and has live music most nights and a tavern menu until 1am. See Across the Absecon Inlet from Brigantine and in Gardner’s Basin, the Flying Cloud Café (345-8222) has had live music and casual dining on its outdoor deck since 1988, and also features an enclosed patio area with panoramic water views. There’s about a dozen specialty cocktails worth sampling, among them the Tiramisu Martini (double espresso vodka, Kahlua, butterscotch schnapps and Baileys Irish Cream), the Pama-Rita (pomegranate liqueur, triple sec and fresh lime) and the Violet Beauregarde (blueberry vodka, blue curacao and fresh sour mix). If you’re traveling by car, the Flying Cloud is at 800 New Hampshire Ave. in A.C. See The Wonder Bar (344-8888), sited right at the foot of the Albany Avenue Bridge in Atlantic City (3701 Sunset Ave.), features the Tiki Bar that’s accessible through the Intracoastal Waterway. The Tiki Bar has over 250 feet of boat docking and will be open for the season starting Saturday, May 1, from 11am-7am. See There are two great outdoorsy, waterfront bars in Margate — one on the ocean side and the other on the bay. Ventura’s Greenhouse (822-0140) is on the ocean side adjacent to Lucy the Elephant. It has a huge elevated, palm-fringed (they’re imported from Florida) outdoor deck that recently opened for the season, and a semi-enclosed seating area called the Sun Deck with a raw bar and a daily 3-6pm happy hour (11am-6pm Sundays) that has half-priced appetizers and drink specials. See venturas-greenhouse. com. Also in Margate is Maynard’s Café (822-8423), a popular bayside retreat since 1966 that the late Al Troiano modified by buying two adjoining buildings, knocking them down, and converting them into an outdoor oasis called Big Al’s Starlite Garden. The Starlite Garden has its own kitchen, live music Join us on Facebook:

The Flying Cloud Cafe in Atlantic City

and DJ entertainment during nice weather, and lots of drink specials including $1.50 Bud Light pints all day. See On the Mainland, there are several waterfront experiences to be had. The Inlet (926-9611) in Somers Point offers great views of the bay, the Crab Trap (927-7377), off the Somers Point Circle, has its deck with live music in the warmer months and the Oyster Creek Inn (652-8565) in Leeds Point offers waterfront dining and live music. The Tuckahoe Inn (390-3322), located in Beasley’s Point just outside of Ocean City, has an outdoor restaurant/bar called the Back Bay Café that overlooks the Greate Egg Harbor Bay. You can arrive by boat, and when the weather heats up it will have live entertainment five nights per week. See A little further south in Strathmere is the Deauville Inn (263-2080), which is open seven days a week starting May 1 and is situated at the foot of the Corson’s Inlet Bridge between O.C. and Sea Isle City (201 Willard Rd., Strathmere). The Deauville features two highly popular outdoor venues — the detached Beach House and the Dockside deck attached to its main building. The deck will have guitarist Lew London and singer Terry Showers performing on weekends starting Memorial Day, and the steel-drum sounds of Cort Farris starting in June. There are 52 slips that allow boaters to pull up, and valet parking is available out front. See Not to be forgotten are The Deck at Trump Marina, located across from Gardner’s Basin in Atlantic City’s marina district, and the three Boardwalk beach bars at Trump Plaza, Bally’s and the Hilton. All four of these venues will open around Memorial Day weekend and generally function as weekend-only outfits until July 4, when they will be open every day, weather permitting. n see more online @

News on tournaments and other action in area casino poker rooms by Mike Pritchard


ARRAH’S RESORT HAS announced a new partnership with popular poker pro Annie Duke, who will be making regular appearances at the casino throughout 2010. Aside from teaching the WSOP of Poker Academy on May 1-3, as reported in last week’s column, Duke is scheduled to appear at WSOP satellite events at the Atlantic City casino, including May 21-22 during the Harrah’s WSOP satellite meet, which runs May 12-27. She’ll also be at Harrah’s in September and December, according to the casino, but Harrah’s hasn’t released specific dates yet. As for her May appearances, Harrah’s says Duke will meet and greet fans and players, though again, where and when have not been released. Obviously, we’ll try and keep tabs on that. The appearances come out of Duke’s involvement with the WSOP, which is owned by Harrah’s Entertainment and it’s nice that A.C. is getting a little attention from the Vegas-based event. “Our poker players will be treated to several property appearances by Annie in 2010,” says Jay Snowden, senior VP and GM of Harrah’s. “Including multiple sessions where she’ll provide expert advice and an exclusive look at the game of poker as seen by a pro on the WSOP Circuit.” The casino is promising updates on the appearances by following Duke on Twitter (@RealAnnieDuke) as well as insider poker tips and promotions leading up to and during her visits to Atlantic City. For info you can also check out The other big poker news in the city is The Borgata Spring Open, which started its $1 million guaranteed championship event Sunday (April 25). The event has drawn 383 entrants and a prize pool of $1,263,900, paying the top 36 finishers. The winner takes home $353,000. Despite a strong start (more than 1,200 players were in the open’s first event) entry counts at the open have been a little soft, especially at marquee events. Earlier in the tournament, the East Coast Championship, with a total

Make MoM’s special day

$7,500 buy-in, attracted only 62 players and did not cover its $500,000 guaranteed prize pool. Keep in mind that the championship event of The Borgata Winter Open, played in late January during some major snow storms, attracted 722 players and went over $2 million in prize money. Still, there are some obvious reasons why the entry counts are off. First, this is the first year for the spring open and it comes in a very busy time for poker tournaments around the country. The Borgata Open in September, a stop on the World Poker Tour, is still the Borgata’ signature tournament. Second, the World Series of Poker begins May 28. With nearly 60 events stretching into July, a lot of pros are probably gearing up for that tournament. Plus many major tournaments have been played in the last few weeks. For example, The World Poker Tour Championship was played over seven days last week at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, attracting a lot of name pros such as Phil Helmuth and Scotty Nguyen. That tournament, however, also saw a fall off in attendance with only about 195 players in the main event. But most importantly, poker-room managers have noted that since the current recession began, major poker events such as the Borgata’s Spring Open have been drawing fewer traveling pros and have become more regional in the fields they bring in. The $3,500 buy-in for the open championship and the $7,500 buyin for the East Coast Championship are a little steep for local players. Most of the other events at the open have had respectable turnouts. For a new event, the spring open has done pretty well and has attracted some big names such as actor James Woods (who played in the championship event) and pros like Steve Dannenman, Sorel Mizzi and Gavin Smith. Not a bad start at all.

O M E S O N G W R I T E R S instinctively know when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written music or lyrics thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to strike a chord with the listening public. Tom Johnston apparently isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of them. As a co-founder of The Doobie Brothers and the composer of some of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best-known early hits, there was only one time when Johnson says he knew heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d written a solid hit song: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listen To the Music,â&#x20AC;? from the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1972 sophomore album, Toulouse Street. Johnston remembers sitting in his bedroom at around 3am and coming up with the familiar guitar riff that opens the song. He woke up Ted Templeman, one of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s record producers, and played the song over the phone. Templeman wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impressed and felt the song needed some work. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well, yeah, it might be pretty good. Needs a couple of changes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever change anything. It stayed the way it was, the way I had it,â&#x20AC;? Johnston recalled in an October interview with The song became their breakout hit and today, more than 30 million singles and albums later, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Listen To the Musicâ&#x20AC;? remains the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most distinctive signature. The song â&#x20AC;&#x153;China Groveâ&#x20AC;? is a better example of a Doobie Brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hit that Johnston wrote without many expectations. The music came first, as it usually does, and then the words came later. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generally I write the music first, and sometimes I have a devil of a time getting the words,â&#x20AC;? he offered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes they come right away, and sometimes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like pulling teeth.â&#x20AC;? Johnston was afraid that was going to be the case with â&#x20AC;&#x153;China Grove,â&#x20AC;? not unlike the difficulty the band had with the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long Train Running.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the case of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;China Grove,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; it was a very similar situation,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The words were written last, and they were made up around this whole idea of this wacky little town with a sheriff that had a Samurai Sword and all that sort of thing. The funny thing was that I found out in 1975 in a cab in Houston that there really was a China Grove, although what happened was in 1972, we were touring in Winnebagos, and we were driving into San Antonio. And there is a China Grove, Texas, right outside of San Antonio. I must have seen the sign and forgotten about it.â&#x20AC;?

stage of Caesars Atlantic City on Friday, April 30, helped put the band together in late 1969 along with drummer John Hartman. One year later, they teamed with Pat Simmons and Dave Shogren to form the nucleus of a band that eventually became the Doobies Brothers. Beginning with their 1971 self-titled debut album, they began piling up hit songs and massive radio air play with their southern-style rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;n roll, catchy music and memorable lyrics on songs like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jesus Is Just Alright,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Black Water,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me),â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Takinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; It To The Streets,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;What A Fool Believesâ&#x20AC;? and more. The bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recording career during the 1970s seems to be divided into two distinct categories: The songs that came before Michael McDonald joined the band â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most written by Johnston â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and those written and sung by McDonald during his six-year tenure. The band split up between 1982-87 and then regrouped for a non-stop run thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lasted nearly 25 years. Of all the Doobiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; songs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Long Train Runningâ&#x20AC;? took the most circuitous route from the stage to the recording studio. The band began playing it live around 1970, when the tune was first titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Osborne,â&#x20AC;? not for any particular reason. Then the name of the song was changed to â&#x20AC;&#x153;Parliament.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was just anything to put down on the set list so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d know what song it was,â&#x20AC;? Johnston said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any words â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I would just make up the words as we played the song.â&#x20AC;? After performing the song live at every show for over three years, producer Templeman persuaded the band to record the tune, so Johnston was forced to write words that actually made sense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[I thought], â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, man, this is just a throwaway song.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it was any big deal,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it had any great merit as far as the chords and everything went, because it seemed too simplistic to me. But I was wrong.â&#x20AC;? n

Spring Guide

Spring into Summer


Local fashionistas give wardrobe tips for the season By Stef Gordon; Photos by Nick Valinote


HE PAST WINTER OF OUR discontent packed quite the wallop (to put it mildly). What with the numerous blizzards, icy roads, and fashion forsaken parka days, it seemed never-ending. Your pale, pasty skin and probable Vitamin D deficiency aren’t the only signs that the frigid season is thankfully over. Bare skin, color, sunshine, and bunnies are all popping up, reminding us that blue skies and breezy nights loom in the horizon. Our annual Spring/Summer fashion roundup has accumulated the best and brightest the area has to offer.

The locally owned Eleganza at The Pier Shops at Caesars has gone from Atlantic City to trans-Atlantic after being selected by Hearst Magazines and the Italian Trade Commission’s “Made in Italy” campaign to celebrate Italy’s newest designs. From May 7-9 from 5-8pm, Eleganza will open its doors for a weekend of gift drawings (Versace china and dinner for two at Girasole), hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, discounts, and most importantly: fashion. Models will also be on site to sport the

styles, far surpassing measly hangers. The “If you Speak Fashion, You Speak Italian” campaign, being held in select U.S. boutiques this spring, promotes Italian fashion and accessories. Co-owner Kim Lucasti says that Hearst researched stores country-wide that carried true Italian goods, with Eleganza being selected based on their collection of both wellknown (Versace, Cavalli, Zanotti, etc) and less-recognized designers. Lucasti says she had the opportunity to travel to Milan to sit in on runway shows (including Missoni, John Richmond, Gianfranco Ferre, Just Cavalli, Aquilano Rimondi) during Fashion Week. She says the store picked up two new designers from the shows, Gianfranco Ferre and Les Copains. Lucasti shares with us her top men’s and women’s picks/designers for the upcoming season:

Easy throw-on dresses are always a must during this time of year as well. It’s all about simplicity and feeling confident in what your wearing. At Simply Fly, they have something for every occasion including fashions for an afternoon at the playground with the kids, a day at the office or a late-night out. They also carry timeless jewelry and accessories. With all the designer brands in stock you don’t have to travel; they bring the latest fashions to you. In our area, the convenience factor for not having to travel far for clothes and accessories is wonderful — from the Hamilton Mall and the dozens of nifty Mainland shops to The Walk and the Pier Shops at Caesars in Atlantic City — but traveling for leisure and relaxation is a must. Susan Berman, president of Berman Travel, specializes in land vacations for people’s upcoming honeymoons, destination weddings, and family vacations to the Caribbean and Mexico.



PRING IS HERE, YAY! I can’t wait for the sunny weather because people tend to loosen up, smile and be friendlier when it’s nice outside. But more importantly nice weather equals trendy fashions, beautiful travel and fantastic functions. This past weekend I attended what has become one of the major spring kick-off events in the region, the 30th annual Stockton College Scholarship Benefit at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Wow, what an event! Joe Piscopo performed, everyone was dressed beautifully, and with approximately 750 attendees the college raised more than $625,000. To raise that kind of money in today’s economy is an excellent feat and it shows how important education is to our community. We are enabling thousands of kids to get an excellent education right here in our backyards. We are lucky to have Stockton and we thank them for their community support. (See photos from this event at Now to the fashions. Marvin and Mary Santos, owners of Serenity Boutique in Smithville, say it’s all about mixing the outrageous with elegance this season. It’s about the smart and sexy looks paired with the sporty and delicate styles. The biggest colors this spring, according to Mary Santos, are turquoise, coral and some pastels.

Joe Piscopo performed at the Stockton Gala April 24.

According to Berman, the hottest travel destination right now is Riviera Maya, Mexico. It’s a quick flight to the Cancun airport (from Philadelphia) and there are many fantastic all-inclusive resorts there, both adults-only and family resorts. Summer is a great time to take advantage of lower prices and great deals, so you may want to start planning now. Berman suggests some great places, including The Real Resorts in Cancun and Playa del Carmen and The Excellence Resorts in Playa Mujeres and Riviera Maya, just to name a few. To talk travel and pick your vacation dates with Berman, call 345-2129.

Speaking of dates, over the next week there are a couple local events that you might want to keep on your own radar. First, on Tuesday, May 4, the Atlantic City Convention Center will host the 2010 New Jersey Governor’s Conference for Women. The theme of this year’s conference is: “A Passport To Your Future.” If you plan on attending, there will be a special networking reception the night before (May 3, 7-9pm) at the Sheraton Atlantic City Convention Center Hotel’s Crown Ballroom. I go every year to this conference. There are thousands of attendees and it’s a great opportunity to meet fabulous women from all over New Jersey. Make time and go! Have you been hearing things about this summer’s planned First Atlantic City Summer Solstice Parade? Well, on Thursday, May 6, a Greater Atlantic City Jaycees Mixer for the parade will be held at the Hard Rock Cafe at the Trump Taj Mahal from 5-8pm. We will have body painting on the Boardwalk and drink specials inside. If you’d like to come, RSVP to Plus, the actual parade will take place on June 26 at 1pm. If you would like to participate — by either building a float, decorating a rolling chair, or being a part of the parade, send an email to n

Accessories: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Versace runway collection is one of the best Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen since he [Gianni Versace] died. The accessories and clothing are just amazing and very reminiscent of Versaceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s earlier collections. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going back to the roots of the company. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also been seeing looks going in two directions: rockstar or fairy princess. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re either edgy or very feminine. One night could be feminine and glamorous, and the next super sexy with a fitted short dress and eight-inch platforms.â&#x20AC;?

Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the whole idea, to have fun with it.â&#x20AC;? McCord also noted chunky bracelets worn in stacks, anything silver, straw handbags, and oversized cocktail rings as other big sellers. Men should look no further than dusting off their favorite â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s relics. No, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not encouraging big hair and Duran Duran. Dana Guerrina, manager of Heritage Surf & Sport in Margate, says â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s pop colors have been back, with bright T-shirts galore in the fluorescent colors of yore. Complement that limegreen top with a pair of aviators (also back with a vengeance). Save yourself a trip down fashion disaster lane by avoiding both plaids (trickling their way out) and flat-brim trucker hats. Unless you do actually drive a big wheeler, just say no. The usual Atlantic City-area mainstays: board shorts, cargo, V-neck T-shirts, are still good to go. As for women, Guerrina says that rompers are big sellers, as well as anything strapless, especially tube dresses. Lots of layering â&#x20AC;&#x201D; such as a boxy fit tank on top of a lace shirt â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be seen, along with the requisite leggings. Lastly, adding a few classic touches to your trend-setting self is never a bad idea. Muriel Goldenberg of Razzle Dazzle in Galloway says that layering a cardigan over a dress or polo will be a timeless look this spring. Tie one around your neck on the way to your polo patch, or simply wear one open should you dine alfresco. Goldenberg also notes that wearing scarves, pastels (hot pink or green) or anything ruffled with the cardigan will touch off the look. Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget the pillbox hat or Jackie O. pearls. â&#x2013;

Grassroots mixed-martial-arts promoter New Breed Fighters will heat up the Superstar Theater again with back-to-back fight nights in Atlantic City. By Ray Schweibert


EW JERSEY’S ROLE IN HELPING to grow mixed martial arts (MMA) into the spectator extravaganza it is today may exceed that of any other state. Likewise, a promotional company called New Breed Fighters (NBF) has been at the forefront of offering the athletes themselves a springboard from which to start, and a forum in which to work. Under the direction of Scott Morgan, NBF has staged a series of events in Atlantic City with increasing popularity, including two full slates of bouts scheduled for Friday and Saturday, April 30-May 1, at Resorts Superstar Theater. Saturday’s 13-bout fight card will mark the 30th event put on by NBF since it came to Atlantic City in May 2007. All of the fighters involved are of amateur status, and many will be making their debut in the ring of combat.

“We first did fights at House of Blues, then for about the past two years we’ve held them at Resorts,” says Morgan, NBF’s president and CEO. “It’s a tough racket and was a bit of a struggle at first, but we’ve added an element of professionalism and entertainment value to the product that we deliver. I have done professional events successfully, but the majority of my shows are for amateur athletes. It’s a developmental program that we’re a part of. My concept is to put young, rising athletes into a professional environment that puts professional demands on them.” Friday night’s main event will pit Mike “The Inferno” Andrillo against Dan “Bear” Hughes for the NBF junior heavyweight (210-pound limit) title. Andrillo is 4-1 as an amateur, Hughes is 3-2. Saturday has two main events. Unbeaten

Jordan Stiner (3-0) will face Tom Philippi (4-2) for the NBF super welterweight (154-pound limit) belt, and Kyle Rigby (4-3) will take on unbeaten Brandon Van Cleeve (3-0) for the light heavyweight title (175 pounds).

to getting [at Resorts], and it has been growing,” says Steve Callender, Resorts senior vice president of operations. “It’s a great demographic for us and the shows are very entertaining. It started out almost exclusively as family and friends, but now that a lot of people have gotten to see it they’re coming back and making sure that they’re on hand when we have another show.” The spectator experience is enhanced by the historical components of the Superstar Theater, says Callender.

“We’ve been averaging about eight [events] a year, and we’re fortunate to have increased our casual fan base,” adds Morgan. “Our fighters’ friends and family constitute the majority of our fan base, but we have seen, especially since we moved to Resorts, that the demographic is increasing and the casual fan base — which is what I call the groups or individuals who are not directly affiliated with a fighter or a team that’s participating — has grown steadily.” Since the crux of its fan base has fighter affiliation, you might find pre-teens to octogenarians at an average NBF event. The bulk of the casual fan base, however, is made up mostly of young males and, according to Morgan, young females who view such events as good opportunities to meet them. “It’s a younger crowd than we’re used

“Since it’s an old-style theater, the fighters actually walk through the crowd coming down the steps to the stage area where the ring is set up, and it’s a great opportunity for the customers to see the fighters up close and personal,” he says. “There’s a great sense of arrival for the fighters as they’re coming into the room. What we do is stage the pre-fight across the hall in our ballroom, and when it’s their turn to fight they’re escorted by security with their groups through the back door with their music blasting, and they come through the crowd to ringside. You feel like a big-time fight when that’s happening.” And unlike some boxing cards, where there is often a long delay between bouts, NBF events see one bout starting as soon as five minutes after another ends. “There’s nonstop action and lots of

energy,” says Callender. “And even if a bout is kind of dull, you’re not going to be waiting long for the next one to start. [Morgan’s] real consistent and puts on a well-run show.” Generally MMA bouts are scheduled for three rounds each at five minutes per round, with a one-minute rest period in between. Early stoppages can occur by knockout, technical knockout or submission, and judges award points based on knockdowns, takedowns, head shots, body shots, controlling an opponent and other criteria. MMA rules underwent sweeping changes after an effort spearheaded by Sen. John McCain in the late 1990s outlawed the sport for a time. “Our current deputy attorney general

[and the legal counsel for the New Jersey Athletic Control Board], Nick Lembo, wrote the rules that we see today, and not only for the events that you see in our state but those around the country,” says Morgan. “So our state has kind of been a pioneer state with the sport, and Nick has been one of the forerunners in the unifications of rules. Many other states have adopted the rules he put into place, and I know I speak for many other promoters in the field when I say that it would be for the betterment of the sport if the rules were unified like every other sport in the world.” Only a small percentage of NBF athletes turn professional, says Morgan, but one who did is Phil Davis, a former NCAA

heavyweight wrestling champion and four-time All-American out of Penn State. Davis competes in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and is currently 4-0 as a pro. He had his first amateur bout with NBF. “I’m about promoting the sport and giving people an opportunity,” says Morgan. “I really love the sport, and I really love the fact that I’m giving these kids — and I shouldn’t say kids because I’ve had them from 17 up to 47 — but I’m giving them good preparation for the future, whether it’s in mixed martial arts or whatever. The discipline involved here helps them in other walks of life. They don’t just show up and fight, there are doctor’s exams, blood tests, waivers to fill

out — and the state has to approve all of this. I’ll be honest, many of these fighters do not come from the highest of educated backgrounds and we’re putting them in a demanding situation, and if they don’t follow the rules and regulations and follow the strict deadlines — of which there are many — they don’t get to fight. “Only about two percent of our fighters go on to become pros,” he adds. “For the rest of them this is like the Super Bowl, and we recognize this and want to do everything to make it feel special for them. We think we’re helping to mold men. We happen to take it very serious and think that that’s what helps to make our shows so good.” n see more online @

Veteran chef Paul Drew offers seafood-cooking class at Phillips in Atlantic City By Frank Gabriel little bit of a ham.” Expanding on that notion, he describes the planned programs as “educational, but you have a little fun with it.” There is a serious culinary lesson available as well. Drew demonstrates via a detailed discussion he plans regarding the varying uses of garlic in America, Italy and France. While most chefs in our country prefer to leave the fragrant bulbs



F YOU ENJOY PREPARING THE fruits of the ocean at home and would like to learn firsthand a few secrets from one of America’s premier seashore operators, Phillips Seafood in Atlantic City has exciting news for you. On the first Saturday of the next two months — May 1 and June 5 to be specific — the facility, located on the third floor of the Pier Shops at Caesars, will offer public classes that are equal parts culinary instruction, dining and entertainment. Titled “Cook, Crack and Eat: The Art of Cooking with Seafood”, the curriculum will be personally hosted by Paul Drew, Phillips executive chef. The welltraveled Brit, a native of Hartfordshire, just north of London, began his culinary career at age 14 on a chicken farm in the south of England. His nearly 40year career on both sides of the Pond provides a perspective that can only be gained through decades of travel and restaurant industry experience. Drew also features the famously dry, urbane, yet engaging sense of humour that is such a hallmark of his countrymen. This should make the upcoming proceedings amusing and memorable. Putting it kindly, most chefs are a bit too stiff and formal to pull off this kind of interactive performance. Not the gregarious Drew. Seriously, if this fellow wasn’t so successfully running kitchens, he would undoubtedly be equally suited to a career in stand-up comedy. Or, as the chef readily admits: “I’m a

The French take the approach one additional step, pureeing the ingredient for an altogether different textural and flavor profile. On Saturday May 1, Drew and Phillips offer a Clam Bake for Two. Lucky attendees will be taught how to shop, select, and create a classic, beachy one-pot meal. Ingredients include whole Maine lobsters, snow crab legs, shrimp, clams, mussels, potatoes and corn on the cob. The best part: enjoying a glass of wine and a clambake in the restaurant before heading home armed with new skills and prepared

The restaurant itself, sleek and modern, provides an open-air theater-style kitchen coupled with sweeping, endless views of the beach, Boardwalk and Atlantic Ocean below. The Phillips franchise began 53 years ago with a simple carryout business on Maryland’s Eastern Shore, which in time has morphed into a 1,400-seat colossus. Drew’s classes are conducted outside the regular kitchen with simple equipment, in an effort to simulate a home cook’s atmosphere. Drew says the overall

goal is to have participants unintimidated working with seafood, leaving the restaurant confident in the belief that, “Things we design they physically could do at home.” A month later, on Saturday, June 5, another event, labeled “The Freshest Catch,” is scheduled. Students will have the opportunity to pick and clean fish like whole red snapper, flounder, mahi-mahi and barramundi. Techniques for grilling and stuffing with crabmeat are also on the agenda. Which only makes sense, since sister company Phillips Foods is the largest commercial producer of crabmeat in the world, registering a total of 11 million pounds in 2006. Drew gives credit to his Atlantic City management team: Assistant executive chef Sean Dunfee, general manager Brian Fountain and Phillips marketing manager Michelle Torres for helping conceive and execute this series of classes. He further indicates that he hopes to incorporate other instructional seminars as part of the restaurant’s regular roster of promotions. Interested? The cost for each class is $65 and includes chef demo, wine, lunch, and a swag bag to go. Classes begin at 11:30am, and space is limited, so register early.

Phillies Fever

Fans love their Fightin’ Phils but aren’t used to rooting for frontrunners By Lori Hoffman


HE NEWEST PHILLIES’ FANS ARE lucky. The young fans that jumped on the bandwagon when 2003 rolled around have never known crushing defeat or a losing season. They are rooting for a team that’s in the playoff mix every year, has won two National League pennants and the 2008 World Series. Winning is what they expect and for the most part, the Phillies of this era have delivered. Fans who began their love affair with the Fightin’ Phils back in the day — and for this writer that means 1964, the year of the epic “up six-and-a-half games with 12 to go” collapse — have endured enough heartache and disappointment for multiple lifetimes. The Phillies are the oldest one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional American sports, dating to 1883. From 1918 to 1948 the team had only one winning season, and in 127 years the Phillies have won only seven National League pennants and two World Series titles. The franchise also became the first in American professional sports history to lose 10,000 games, a milestone that happened during the 2007 season. Before the current reign of continuous excellent baseball, Phillies fans would cling to a few scattered highlights, like the 1950 Whiz Kids led by Richie Ashburn and Robin Roberts. Then, after 97 years of waiting for a miracle, it arrived in 1980, the title of World Series champions, thanks to Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, Tug McGraw and Pete Rose.


What followed were a few good years then back to mediocrity once again. In 1993 came the joy of the blue collar, down-and-dirty Phillies we loved for their swagger, led by Lenny “Nails” Dykstra, Darren Dalton, The Krukker and a wacky relief pitcher known as Wild Thing. One swing of the bat by Toronto’s Joe Carter and the dream died once again.

The Phillies, as noted by Jimmy Rollins several times, are ‘still the team to beat.’ However, the miracle of consistency has been the legacy of the current Phillies franchise, which developed around a core of homegrown players from the Phillies farm system. First came shortstop Jimmy Rollins, then second baseman Chase Utley, and when Jim Thome was traded, a lineup spot opened up for home-run machine Ryan Howard. Pitcher Cole Hamels was also from the Phillies farm system. With manager Charlie Manual at the helm, and some excellent trades and free-agent signings like Shane Victorino, Jayson Werth and Brad Lidge, and this year, pitcher Roy Halladay and third baseman Placido Polanco, the Phillies, as noted by Rollins several times, “Are still the team to beat.”

KALAS CHRONICLES As of this writing the Phillies are in first place in the National League East and are expected to remain there when the regular season concludes. Halladay has been — if that’s possible — better than advertised with a 4-1 start and 1.80 ERA, the first true ace since Carlton. That means an easy ride to the playoffs, right? Of course not. Longtime Phillies fans know better than that. An easy ride would be boring, so the most popular Phillies blog sites are full of complaints from the Phillies faithful about why it was stupid to trade Cliff Lee, that the starting pitching behind Halladay stinks and that the bullpen isn’t much better. Depending on what current closer Ryan Madsen has done for them lately, fans are either begging for Brad Lidge to get back from his rehab assignment soon or say he should stay in the minors indefinitely. However, those newer fans, who have only known success, expect their Phillies to keep winning and don’t sweat the details. I wish I could share their blind faith, but I’ve been a Phillies fan far too long. n

Phillies broadcasts haven’t been the same since April 13, 2009 when the Phillies lost their voice, broadcaster Harry Kalas. We can’t bring Harry back, but we can enjoy the memories. One way to do that is with the new book Harry The K — The Remarkable Life of Harry Kalas, written by Phillies beat writer Randy Miller. Miller’s book is filled with anecdotes about Kalas that reveal his amazing generosity towards fans, his love of baseball, his optimistic nature (“High Hopes” was his favorite song for a reason), and his flaws. He was a minister’s son who had a wild side that included too much booze and too many women. But his personal life never interfered with his career, and the best part of the book delves into that career, including his days as the voice of the minor league Hawaii Islanders, to his first major league job with the Astros and finally, teaming up with Whitey Ashburn for the best broadcast duo in the history of the Phillies. Miller’s book covers it all, including the origins of the feud with fellow broadcaster Chris Wheeler, showing both sides of the dispute in evenhanded detail. Harry the K’s high hopes and career highlights are all here in a fascinating read for Phillies’ fans. — LH

‘Night of Broadway Stars’

When: Thursday, May 6, 7:30pm Where: The Borgata Music Box, Atlantic City How Much: $175 VIP Package, $40 performance only

Covenant House New Jersey will double up the money raised from its annual ‘Night of Broadway Stars’ at the Borgata thanks to an anonymous donor. By Michael Pritchard


IKE MANY CHARITIES, COVENANT House New Jersey had a pretty bad year in 2009 in the face of the economic recession. The organization, which houses and assists homeless and runaway youth at its facilities in Atlantic City and Newark, had to layoff nearly 20 percent of its staff. But then came an amazing turn of events, courtesy of a mysterious benefactor who remains anonymous. “We were struck pretty hard by the economy,” says Jennifer Williams, manager of development for Covenant House. “But then someone came forward and offered us an unbelievable contribution. They offered to match us dollar for dollar in the money we raised at our annual Night of Broadway Stars fundraiser. They matched ticket sales, ad sales, everything. We managed to raise, on our own, more than $500,000 and with the contribution it was $1.1 million. We ended up being able to restore all of those positions.” That, of course was wonderful news for the more than 1,200 homeless youth served by the organization, which along with temporary housing provides Join us on Facebook:

employment training, home placement assistance and other programs to youth. And even better news: the anonymous donor is back this year. That means anyone attending this year’s Night of Broadway Stars, on Thursday, May 6, at The Borgata’s Music Box, will get a double bang for their buck. But as good as an incentive as that is, the show itself is a pretty good sell all by itself. Renowned lyricist and composer Neil Berg, creator and co-producer of 100 Years of Broadway, now the No. 1 Broadway touring concert in the United States, hosts the evening. Berg began collaborating with Covenant House in 2004, offering the first Night Of Broadway Stars at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark in 2004. (This year’s NJPAC performance is May 4.) In 2008, a second annual show was added at The Borgata in Atlantic City. Headlining the Night of Broadway Stars is Stephanie Block, who originally starred as Elphaba in the Broadway hit Wicked. Also starring is Craig Schulman, the only man who ever played the Phantom, Jean Val Jean, in Les Miserables and the lead

in Jekyll & Hyde on Broadway as well as Rita Harvey, performing music from The Phantom of the Opera. Along with a number of other Broadway talents singing tunes from sev-

‘Someone came forward and offered us an unbelievable contribution. With it, we managed to raise $1.1 million.’ eral Broadway hits, some of Covenant House’s youth clients will also be part of the evening. The show traditionally closes with several of the youth taking the stage with the stars. “Obviously, they get a little nervous,” says Williams. “But it’s just an amazing experience for our kids. They would never get the opportunity to be on stage with Broadway stars like this. It’s very exciting and for the kids who can sing

and dream of performing, it’s the chance of a lifetime.” Music is the main theme of the evening, and tickets for the performance only are $40. But in reality, the evening is about hobnobbing with the stars. The evening begins at 6pm with a pre-show reception featuring cocktails and hearty hors d’oeuvres and concludes with a memorable VIP “Meet the Stars” postshow dessert reception. VIP packages are $175 (the purchase of two tickets includes two more for free). This event will also honor Reverend Dave Delaney, associate pastor of Central United Methodist Church in Linwood, and William Southrey, president and CEO of the Atlantic City Rescue Mission, for the support they have given to Covenant House and the surrounding community. Covenant House began operating in New Jersey in 1989 and at first, with volunteers working from vans, provided services to runaway youths in Newark and Atlantic City. The organization opened its first transitional living program — providing education, job training and placement — in Atlantic City in 1993. n see more online @
