Rev. Longcrierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;From Disgrace to Dignityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Robert Johnson:

The Complete Original Masters â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Centennial Edition (Columbia/Legacy)

Most inner-city streets claim more lives than they see shaped in a positive way, but Reggie Longcrier is an inspirational exception. The Atlantic City native got so caught up in the perils of street life itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a miracle he made it out alive, let alone as an ambassador of God who helps others with troubled lives see the light. For over 20 years, Rev. Longcrier has been the chaplain of the Catawba Correctional Center in North Carolina, where he was once an inmate. This Saturday, May 14, he will host a book signing at 4pm at the All Wars Memorial Building at 1510 Adriatic Ave. in A.C. Longcrier will be signing his autobiography From Disgrace to Dignity (see fromdisgracetodignity. com), which depicts his journey â&#x20AC;&#x153;through a horrific maze of drugs, crime and incarcerationâ&#x20AC;? that he endured until bottoming out and finding God while incarcerated in the early 1980s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between the ages of 11 and 19, I had paid dues in several reformatories throughout the state of New Jersey, serving from nine to 18 months a stretch,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks be to God, the ride stopped when I came to the crossroads of my life, faced with a 14-year-to-life sentence in the state of North Carolina. Then I asked God to come into my life and make something of the mess I had made of it. I asked the Lord to help me to change, and give me another chance to make up for the years I has wasted serving the adversary. I asked Him to help me live right. I promised Him that if he did that for me, I would give Him back a man after his own heart, one He could be proud of, a man of whom He could say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well done, my good and faithful servant.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It has been over 20 years now since the Lord answered that prayer.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ray Schweibert

May 8 would have been Robert Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 100th birthday. To celebrate the occasion, Columbia Records and its Legacy division have put together two releases, including everything the father of the blues ever put down on record, plus more for die-hard fans. A two-disc set, titled Robert Johnson: The Centennial Edition, features newly remastered versions of 42 master and alternate takes that Johnson recorded in San Antonio, Texas, in 1936 and in Dallas, Texas, in 1937. These two sessions were the only times Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s American music treasures were recorded. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big deal at the time though, as Johnson, born in Hazlehurst, Miss., grew up during the racially-segregated, Depression-era south. Along with his unworldly guitar playing and deeply soulful voice, Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lyrics tell a lot about what it was like living in the early 20th Century south and, once the lyrical codes are broken, about a lot of the things bluesmen and others of the time dealt with on a day-to-day basis. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the early 1960s when Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s works were rediscovered by a new generation of mostly white Americans and Britons. Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and countless other rockers who came out of the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s electrified Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mysterious songs, some of which include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sweet Home Chicago,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Love in Vain Blues,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Cross Road Bluesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Traveling Riverside Blues.â&#x20AC;? A deluxe set features a hardbound book that holds vinyl 78rpm replicas of 12 of Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s singles (at 45rpm), a pair of two-disc sets as well as a DVD documentary. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeff Schwachter

Blue Moon Breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summer Series

Spring Is Festival Time At Smithville

Kicking off its fifth season, the Blue Moon Brewery Summer Jazz Series features five Sunday nights of some of the genreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best musicians. Hosted by the Somers Point Jazz Society, there will be one Blue Moon performance each month, May through September, at Gregoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant in Somers Point. It starts Sunday, May 22, with the Tri-Fi New York City piano trio of Matthew Fries (piano), Phil Palombi (bass) and Keith Hall (drums), which began as the backing band for noted jazz vocalist Curtis Stigers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the fourth annual Blue Moon Summer Jazz Series gets started, Gregoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is proud to be the sole venue this summer,â&#x20AC;? says Walt Gregory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our location may be smaller than some, but the intimacy gives it a real jazz-club feeling. We leave the choice of performers up to the pros connected with the jazz society, but are told over and over how much they enjoy playing at our place. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited for another great summer of great jazz.â&#x20AC;? On June 22, the Generations Quartet will perform. July 10 will feature the Electric Miles Sextet, and Latin jazz will be the theme Aug. 21, with the Suzzette Ortiz Trio. Rounding out the series on Sept. 18 will be the Tony Day/Teddy Royal

Quartet featuring local drummer Tony Day, Teddy Royal on guitar, Dan Kostelnik on organ and Duane Davis on alto sax. All performances start 8:30pm at Gregoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant, 900 Bay Ave. in Somers Point. Jazz Society members, college and high school students are admitted free, otherwise a $5 cover applies. For more information call 927-6677 or visit spjazz.org. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; RS

By most peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standards, a trip to Historic Smithville and Village Greene is a great day out anytime in spring. With 60 shoppes, the Smithville Inn and Fred & Ethelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lantern Light Tavern to name just a few attractions (strolling along the lake is also pretty cool), the folks at Smithville know that an outdoor pedestrian mall can be a perfect spot in the warm May weather. And so theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lined up outdoor festivals for the next two weekends. This Saturday and Sunday, (May 14 and 15) itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mayfest, which will feature displays by more than 100 juried crafters, an International food court, live music and activities for the kids. On Saturday, the musical guest will be Entourage, a high-energy local party/dance band with a repertoire ranging from the 70â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top hits. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play noonâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm. Sunday, country artist Sherry Lynn plays from 1â&#x20AC;&#x201C;4pm. Lynn lives in Washington Twp and has opened up for LeAnn Rimes. On Saturday May 21, Smithville offers up the New Jersey Renaissance Faire from 10am-6pm. The event recreates the feel of an English shire in the heart of the renaissance. Both events are free. Visit smithvillenj.com for info. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Pritchard

IKE ITS FORERUNNER, AN UPSCALE steakhouse, the seafood loverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s haven called FIN is sort of set back in the southeast corner of the Tropicanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaming floor, a little off the beaten path from all the pedestrian traffic that The Quarter and Fiesta Plaza typically see. To help folks know FIN is back there, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sometimes notice a young lady donned in a marine-blue mermaid outfit handing out pamphlets and pointing in its direction. FIN has already gained acclaim for fresh seafood, locally grown produce and homegrown wines that head chef and southern New Jersey native Demetrios Haronis hand selects. Its bar, sited straight ahead off the gaming floor The Bar at FIN (and the only part of FIN that does not overlook the Atlantic), is fronted by a sushi station where chefs press and slice such delectables as spicy tuna roll, yellow tail, scallion, eel-and-cucumber and salmon-andasparagus. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as fresh as it gets, and worth seeking out for a sampling. And speaking of sampling, a taste of FINâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wares recently got a lot easier and affordable, and without the need to dive in for a full sit-down dinner. Four nights per week, the Bar at FIN â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which, along with about 20 seats at the bar itself, includes several two-seater tables around a marble-floored fringe â&#x20AC;&#x201D; offers half-priced specials on appetizers, cocktails and wines by the glass. The special nights are Wasabi Wednesday (5-8pm, half-priced sushi, sake and saketini), Prohibition Thursday (5pmclosing, half-priced cocktails and N.J.-made wines and beers), FIN Friday (5-9pm, half priced appetizers, maki rolls and N.J. wines by the glass) and R&R Sunday (5-8pm, half-priced raw-bar items and rosĂŠ wines). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brings them in and, because of the prices, has been putting a lot of people in the seats,â&#x20AC;? says bartender Joe Fardon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it helps give the place a little exposure.

excellent wine and drink selection. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your typical bar in the true bar sense,â&#x20AC;? he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but if you want to take a little break from the tables and get a drink and a bite to eat instead of a full meal, this is the way to go. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked in a lot of upscale places all my life, including the Latin Casino [in Cherry Hill, which, prior to closing in 1978, used to feature Frank Sinatra, Al Martino, Frankie Avalon and other major stars of the day], and this is my kind of place.â&#x20AC;? Among the selections during Wasabi Wednesday are glasses of Fu-Ki (warm) saki at $3 per glass (regularly $6), the Captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saketini (a martini made with chilled Absolut vodka and sake) at $6.25, the spicy blue crab maki roll at $6, and half-priced sushi and sashimi sampler platters. Among the eight special drinks during Prohibition Thursday are the Prohibition C o c k t a i l (Bootlegger vodka or Tub gin with cherry brandy and orange juice) and the Speakeasy Martini (Bootlegger vodka or Tub gin with pineapple juice and grenadine) for $6 each. Apps during FIN Friday include Crispy Point Judith Calamari ($6), the Prime File Mignon Sliders (half priced at $9.50) and Panco Crusted Shrimp ($8.50). There are five varieties of rose wines priced between $4-$6 per glass during R&R Sunday, and a cold seafood selection menu. FIN is also unique in that it has an outdoor cigar deck, which purveys some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best hand-rolled cigars and provides spectacular views of the ocean and Boardwalk. N

HANKS TO SOME GAMBLING conferences underway in Las Vegas and the now dreaded monthly release of gambling revenues, (theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re down again) Atlantic City has been taking it on the chin again in the media. How can we survive? Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the casino industry plan better for new competition? Why doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the city market itself better? Add to that another wave of layoffs of table-game personnel, fallout from the recent deregulation of staffing requirements on casino floors, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all doom and gloom again for the city. But while weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never delight in othersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; struggles, recent numbers from the World Series of Poker circuit events at Pennsylvaniaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester (ironically one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new competitors, yet owned by A.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest casino company), held through May 10, shows that things are tough all over. And they also indirectly prove that as far as poker goes, Atlantic City is still a major regional drawing spot in the Northeast. For example, the opening event at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester, a $345 buy-in, (with the entrance fee) drew only 244 players and had a total prize pool of $71,004. Compare that to the opening event of the WSOP circuit event at Caesars Atlantic City in March. That $300 + $50 tournament drew 742 players and paid $43,184 to the winner. Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester paid $16,888. More impressive, however, was the opening event of the WSOP circuit event at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort in Atlantic City in December, also a $350 total buy-in that drew 1,181 players. And if memory serves, the average temperature in December 2010 was five degrees above zero, yet the casino still packed them in. Looking at the winners lists at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester, eight out of 10 players seem to be from Pennsylvania with just a few New Jersey, New York and Virginia players making up the rest of the fields. Atlantic City tournaments usually draw from up and down the East Coast. It should be noted though that the WSOP has been conducting some pretty funky structures at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester with some strange opening chip counts. For example, the opening event at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester started players with 7K in chips, but players could get another 3K Like us:

with a $10 staff appreciation donation. Frankly, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a new one for us. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on top of the three-percent charge for dealersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; gratuities from the total prize pool and another one-percent vig that would go to the WSOP $1 Million Freeroll Championship later this month in Vegas. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d guess this nickel and diming turned a few players off and they skipped some events. Still, the championship event at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chester, a $1,600 buy-in (again, including the vig) and a starting chip count of $20K, has drawn only 269 players. Caesars Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship event in March (same buy-in) drew 442 players and the championship event at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in December drew 351, showing that Atlantic City still has more of a regional draw for big poker events than many of its new competitors in Pennsylvania. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some good news at a time when the city could use some. Speaking of the World Series, even though itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Vegas-based event, Caesars Entertainment and ESPN have announced a new plan for televising the WSOP main event that could have an impact on all televised poker tournaments, including the WPTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Borgata Open. Basically, ESPN will televise part of the main event almost live. The network will cover the Main Event from July 14-19 while the tournament is underway (the main event begins July 7). In the past, the network waited until after the final nine was set to begin airing programs. The key will be that the broadcasts will be on a 30-minute delay, so that live hole cards can still be shown. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an important point. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the â&#x20AC;&#x153;lipstick camâ&#x20AC;? was invented and hole cards could be shown that poker became popular on TV. But of course, if you showed the hole cards completely live, the cards would be known before the hand was finished. The amount of signaling going on from the gallery would be dizzying. All in all, the network is adding 32 more hours of coverage across its networks and Web site this year. In the wake of the U.S. Department of Justice crackdown on online poker, the WSOP main event is expected to have a smaller field this year as many online satellites wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be offered. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear ESPN still thinks televised poker can only get bigger. N

ID YOU HEAR THE ONE ABOUT

Larry King doing stand-up comedy? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no joke. The man whose interview program anchored CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prime-time lineup for a quarter-century says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very serious about making people laugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I was starting [over] today, in spite of the terrific and wonderful career Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had in broadcasting, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have chosen comedy,â&#x20AC;? King says. His announcement of a comedy tour several months ago raised a few eyebrows, but only among those who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know his back-story. The avuncular, 77-year-old media legend, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on a first-name basis with everyone from world leaders and A-list celebrities to the average guy on the street, is no stranger to the funny business. After television and radio made him a household name, he regularly appeared as a keynote speaker at conventions and business meetings, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d spend up to 90 minutes on stage regaling audiences with laugh-filled quips, comments, stories and jokes. But Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedy talents largely flew under the radar because of his nightly commitment to CNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Larry King Live, which he began hosting in 1985 as an outgrowth of his nationally-syndicated overnight radio show. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until after Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final nightly broadcast on CNN last Dec. 16, when he essentially became a free agent, that he began planning his comedy career. Theatrical producer Scott Zeiger, coCEO of BASE Entertainment, which produces Broadway shows, had seen Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedic speeches and encouraged him to develop it into a more cohesive production. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to standing on a stage alone, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m used to making people laugh,â&#x20AC;? says King, who performs Saturday, May 14, at Borgataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Music Box. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just turned it into an act ... but instead of being free form, where I might go here or there, now I know where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going. This is a full-blown 80-minute act.â&#x20AC;? He loosely compares it to Billy Crystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tony Award-winning autobiographical oneman show 700 Sundays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Except itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as serious,â&#x20AC;? he tells Atlantic City Weekly during an early-morning phone call from his home in Beverly Hills, where he was preparing to drive his two sons, Chance, 12, and Cannon, 11, to school. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Crystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] show had a lot of serious moments. Mine is 99-percent humor.â&#x20AC;? The Brooklyn-born Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s broadcasting career began in a time-honored fashion. Enamored with radio as a kid, he swept floors at a Miami radio station in the midLike us:

1950s before working his way into an on-air position. His easy interview style developed during a live radio show from a Miami Beach restaurant, where he chatted with waiters and customers. Later, celebrities performing in the resort would stop by, most notably Bobby Darin and Jackie Gleason, and Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career began to soar, first locally and later nationally. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on the air for more than a halfcentury and has conducted more than 60,000 interviews during his long run on radio and television. He admits he misses certain aspects of the nightly television show since he handed over his time slot to British journalist Piers Morgan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I miss it when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a Japan, or when [former Egyptian President Hosni] Mubarak leaves [office] or the [Libyan leader Muammar] Gaddafi thing,â&#x20AC;? King says in his clipped style, referring to the earthquake in Japan and the conflicts in the Middle East. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know Mubarak, I know Gaddafi, I have access [to them],â&#x20AC;? he adds, sounding less braggadocios and more as a matter of fact. Conversely, while he loves show business, he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x153;miss [talking to] the Kardashians,â&#x20AC;? he says with a wry chuckle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Morgan] had [actress] Eva Longoria on the other night,â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a nice girl, I interviewed her many times, and I like her. But I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss that.â&#x20AC;? Married eight times to seven different women, King is now enjoying his new role as a handâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-on dad, coaching his sons Little League team, taking them to hockey games and just being a family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I raised three children who are much older now, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay as much attention to them, sadly, as I do to these two little boys,â&#x20AC;? he says a surprisingly candid admission. King is so comfortable with his new comedy show heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d consider taking it to Broadway. But it would only be for a limited run because he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be away from his kids for too long. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be a kick to go on a Broadway stage,â&#x20AC;? he admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have complete confidence in the act. I know the act is funny.â&#x20AC;? N

WALTZ THROUGH TIME

The Princess Brides

Grace Kelly, originally claimed by both Philadelphia and Ocean City, set a glamorous standard for modern-day princesses. By Jim Waltzer

P

RINCES AND PRINCESSES INHABIT our earliest storylands, a sensibility that all but the jaded tend to carry into adulthood. When Kate and William hitched their joint star to the House of Windsor two weeks ago, it recalled a royal wedding of seashore import that took place five-and-a-half decades ago. That would be the nuptials of Grace and Rainier, which similarly galvanized the globeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention. Rather than at the Jersey shore, of course, the G&R bash held forth in Monaco, where Prince Rainier Grimaldi ruled the fairy-tale principality on the French Riviera. Rainier, a seemingly sweet-tempered unprepossessing fellow, had met Grace Kelly when she was in the vicinity for the 1955 Cannes Film Festival, soon after the stunning actress had completed filming To Catch A Thief, her third outing with director Alfred Hitchcock. In short order, she found herself at the palace for a photo spread. When she returned to the States, the movie star and the prince began a correspondence. If Thief co-star Cary Grant was the most debonair of leading men, Rainier was strictly a character actor. But Grace, though Hollywood royalty, was in search of her own real-life prince. A couple who owned a home in Margate and were close friends of the Kellys went to the Riviera later that year and convinced Rainier to come calling at the traditional Kelly Christmas party

back in Philadelphia during his already scheduled trip to America. Indeed, he was a bachelor and in the market for a princess. Grace was the middle daughter and third child of the House of Kelly â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the brickworks empire built by her father, John B. Kelly, Olympic oarsman, self-made business tycoon, and progenitor of the Atlantic City Race Course. Summers were for Ocean City, where Jack Kelly Jr. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kellâ&#x20AC;?) sparkled in the South Jersey Lifeguard Championships, representing the local beach patrol established by his father, who had built a Spanish-style manse

!

Not a bad parlay. Grace played a princess opposite accomplished Brit thespian Alec Guinness in The Swan, released by MGM on the day of her wedding to Rainier in April 1956. The Palace of Monaco glittered, as television cameras recorded their vows and the 100-plus titles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; distaff versions of those held by Rainier â&#x20AC;&#x201D; conferred upon the new princess. But on movie screens, Grace Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name never again appeared above the title. Hitchcock offered her another role in the early 1960s and more opportunities emerged later, but her husband and subjects quashed her urges to return to the limelight. She led a life of regal domesticity, class, and good works until that awful morning in September 1982, when, as if scripted in a dark moment, her car hurtled off the same treacherous mountainside roadway that had been the site of her â&#x20AC;&#x153;sports car speedingâ&#x20AC;? scene in To Catch A Thief. Her fine films remain and are rediscovered screen was no place for Philly diphthong by new generations. And her wedding dress, disasters. courtesy MGMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief designer, spawned She appeared in dozens of live television dramas before Hollywood selected her for the gown worn by Kate Middleton, each immortality.

Grace Kelly had a look about her, a builtin spotlight that craved a stage beyond the summer sands of Ocean City, and Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s East Falls neighborhood. First she modeled (as had her mother), then came acting classes at New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed American Academy of Dramatic Arts. She debuted on Broadway at age 19, but her small voice was better suited to the soundstage. Thanks to the ear of acting coaches and her own diligence, she transformed that voice into a sedate, perfectly modulated (some say affected) instrument â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the

in 1931 at 26th Street and Wesley Avenue, then on the beachfront. By the 1940s, the Kellys were down-home members of the summertime community â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the girls jarred produce at the fruit stand, and Kellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifeguard buddies eyed them along the beach. Grace grew from a coltish girl to a trim teen to a breathtaking beauty. In a few short years, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be paired on-screen with the

Another sold-out show, with thanks going out to Jay Black, Frankie Avalon, the Soul Survivors, the Orlons, the Tymes, and the Planotones. And with that behind us, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talk about Memorial Day weekend, right around the corner. Would you believe this year will mark 40 years that you and I have been together at that legendary spot, Memories in Margate? Look for some exciting things to happen when we go live on KOOL 98.3 on weekends, not only from Memories on Saturday nights, but also on Friday nights from Miaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant at Caesars Atlantic City. More about that as the weeks go by â&#x20AC;&#x201D; now, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ask the Geator.

After a bunch of people (including me) were reminiscing about the good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s in Margate, I was wondering if you ever considered doing an â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s reunion dance party at Memories? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lovin Downbeach (Connie)

Well, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to Memories on Saturday, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always an â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s reunion. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the partying crowd, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the music. We can go from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s, the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s, and the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s into the present. And the magic of Memories is the people who come and party. No matter what age or era you favor, Memories will take you back. Listening to you play â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Meâ&#x20AC;? and was wondering if Chris Montez is still on the music scene. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Laura Many performers who seem to have disappeared from view are quite popu-

lar in other countries, and Chris is one. He has had much success touring in Japan, South America, and Europe and also continues to appear in the United States. As a matter of fact, he was with us at Caesars in Atlantic City when we taped the Malt Shop Memories show with Frankie Avalon, Bobby Rydell, Fabian, and other greats. That show will be aired nationally on PBS in August. You can also check Chrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule on his own Web site at chrismontez.com. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the inside word on who Carly Simon was singing about in the song â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re So Vainâ&#x20AC;?? I always thought it was Warren Beatty. Thanks, man, keep rockinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Roy

Campbell via Facebook

Carly has admitted that the song is â&#x20AC;&#x153;only a little bitâ&#x20AC;? about Warren Beatty, but she has never publicly

revealed exactly who the song is about and claims she never will because â&#x20AC;&#x153;it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fairâ&#x20AC;? to the person. The only hints sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given are that the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name has the letters A, E and R in it. So the truth is finally out â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the Geator! N

Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steak House at Resorts is meticulous in making sure it only serves the finest cuts of beef. By Frank Gabriel

T

HE VERY FIRST ITEM PROSPECTIVE patrons glimpse upon arrival at Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steakhouse at Resorts is a small, well-lit, walk-in refrigerator directly opposite the entrance. Within that exactly 36-degree chamber are bulging sides of whole beef: prime rib, triangular short loins for Porterhouse, monstrous bone-in ribeyes and house signature New York strip steaks. According to executive chef Sergio Soto, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a carnivores treasure worth nearly $10,000. That meat, provided by top-shelf distributor Rastelli, will undergo an in-house, dry-aging process lasting several weeks prior to being served. This is an inherently costly procedure. As steaks rest and age in cool air, they lose moisture, resulting in a significant decrease in total weight. The enormous upside is that like a fine reduction sauce, their flavor profile concentrates and is intensified. This is one of a number of features providing Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their distinct persona and cachet in the crowded steak house market. Like, for instance, having a professional butcher on the payroll. After all, someone has to be responsible for breaking down those costly racks. With that much precious product on the line, it is not a task for the inexperienced. Soto speaks glowingly of his meat cutter, Jorge Gonzalez, even showing off a surgically hygienic room where this old-school trade is plied. Another unusual aspect are the grills themselves. Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exclusively utilizes open-flame charcoal cooking devices. They

Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steak House at Resorts

impart a distinctly different â&#x20AC;&#x201D; authentic, in our opinion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sear and taste to prime beef. Throw in the fact that they authored our townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first-ever Burger Bar, and you have a pretty formidable operation. Soto, 45, has been employed at Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s since May 2006. They opened only months earlier, New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve 2005. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real family angle as well. Donna McCarthy, Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager, owns and operates, along with husband Kevin, Ventnor breakfast and lunch favorite Hannah Gâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Another Soto calls the shots in the kitchen there, brother Angel, 41. Two more talented family members work alongside Sergio at Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Sister Raquel is the pastry chef and sibling Blanca a server at the adjoining Burger Bar. McCarthy, a Holy Spirit grad who returned locally after working for years in New York City, says of ownership group Ark Restaurants, â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a very different company. Everybody knows everybody, everyone has been with them forever. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a little family.â&#x20AC;? When asked about her personal favorites from the kitchen, she reminds us that the bill of fare offers much more than just succulent prime beef. Specifically, she mentions Sotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative daily additions, such as an eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offering of Mediterranean seafood â&#x20AC;&#x201D; poached shrimp and jumbo crab â&#x20AC;&#x201D; atop radic-

chio with feta cheese, capers and lemon vinaigrette. Or soups, a lustrous, lighterthan-expected pasta fagiole loaded with perfectly diced carrots and zucchini and another, roasted peppers, potato puree and basil, finished with a hint of cream. Other menu highlights the chef recommends include a 28-ounce Cowboy rib eye and a pan-seared salmon entree plated with colossal crab meat, tomato and bernaise sauce. Sotoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culinary philosophy is admirably direct, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about beliefs. You need to be directing, not just overseeing. This is not a chemistry class.â&#x20AC;? Like scratch cooking everywhere in his kitchen, right down to the popular house-made potato chips utilized next door at the Burger Bar. On that subject, he points out his grill man, Rolando Cruz, as being personally responsible for everything delivered to that side of the room. Founded in 1927 as a speakeasy during Prohibition, interiors at Gallagherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reflect back upon that storied past. Iconic portraits of Paul Newman, Sidney Poitier, Joe DiMaggio and Babe Ruth, along with a slew of historic figures, adorn walls throughout. And with the new Dennis Gomes-era of Resorts in place, McCarthy seems particularly enthused, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dennisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; group has made a big difference. The casino floor is lively, the halls are busy and the rooms are filling up.â&#x20AC;? N

Sal Remembers Sinatra Chef Sal Scognamillo of Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooks up some memories of the Chairman of the Board By Lori Hoffman

S

AL SCOGNAMILLO, EXECUTIVE chef and co-owner of Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Italian Restaurant in New York and at the Atlantic City Hilton, grew up in the family business. This included cooking for celebrities, in particular a superstar from Hoboken, N.J., who was first brought to the Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in New York by the Dorsey Brothers. That superstar was Frank Sinatra, and Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s became renowned as the Chairman of the Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite restaurant. The Scognamillo family has paid tribute to their best customer over the years with special events, and Chef Sal will be dong just that this Friday, May 13, when he participates in the Ocean County Library Foundationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the Chairmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Table ...â&#x20AC;? fundraiser event. The event, benefiting the library system, will take place at 7pm, featuring the music of Frank Sinatra and his favorite dishes from Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Scognamillo will lead the course introductions and provide stories about his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite customer. In a phone interview from Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in New York, Chef Sal talks to Atlantic City Weekly about his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special relationship with the Sinatra family and provides his own favorite Sinatra story. Chef Sal says that it was a friend of his from the Ocean County Library who put together a similar event two years ago and decided to do it again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was so proud to tell some stories of the relationship we had with Sinatra, from my grandparents to me and even my children meeting his children, Frank Jr. and Nancy,â&#x20AC;? says Scognamillo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful night to remember him. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be telling stories about how my grand-

Chef Sal Scognamillo father (Pasquale â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patsyâ&#x20AC;? Scognamillo) met him, how he stayed with us throughout the years and how his family still continues to be a part of our lives. Everyone will be getting a cookbook and a jar of Pastyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sauce as part of the admission to the event. You have the food, you have the singing, and you have the dancing. It will be a wonderful night.â&#x20AC;? So what were Sinatraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorites? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He liked almost everything on the menu, but he loved the stuffed artichokes. He liked anything with whole garlic. You get the flavor and then you take out the garlic before serving. He liked the arugula salad with olive oil and red wine vinegar, very simple, and the fusilli pasta with the tomato basil sauce with onions and prosciutto. For a main course he liked the Veal Cutlet Milanese, veal pounded paper thin with flour, egg and breadcrumbs, sautĂŠed until it was crisp.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dessert was very traditional. He liked ricotta cheesecake, cannoli, and pasticiotto.â&#x20AC;? The latter is a pastry filled with a lemon cream, and is served free to Pastyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New York customers every year on Sinatraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birthday, Dec. 12. Asked about his personal favorite Sinatra encounter, Chef Sal talks about the first time he cooked for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was 21 and in the kitchen upstairs. My father took him to the table. My father was in a suit, and Sinatra says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Joe, why are you in a suit? You have to go in the kitchen and cook for me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My dad says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No, no. My son Sal, he took over in the kitchen.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The kitchen door opens and Sinatra is there. I asked him how I could help him and hoped he would enjoy everything. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I will as long as you cook as well as your dad.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; We had a laugh. In retrospect, he was just trying to make me feel comfortable. He probably knew I was quaking in my boots.â&#x20AC;?

As for his Atlantic City operation, Chef Sal tries to check in every other month, and his parents also take turns making sure the quality is being maintained at the Hilton Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have a great crew down there. Customers from here who travel there say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky. You have good people. They take care of us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Sinatra isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only celebrity who has been a regular at Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Tony Bennett, Carroll Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor, Bono, Rush Limbaugh, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Madonna, Sean Combs, David Letterman, Oprah Winfrey, Keanu Reeves, Robert De Niro and Don Rickles have all dined there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My personal favorite was Rosemary Clooney,â&#x20AC;? says Chef Sal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was a sweetheart. I used to call her Aunt Rosemary. She was so kind to our family. She brought her nephew George Clooney to the restaurant. Michael Bublè has been a regular customer and so has Ben Stiller.â&#x20AC;? (His parents Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara are regulars, too). As for celebrities that have dined at the Atlantic City Hilton Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Debbie Reynolds has been there quite a lot and Frank Sinatra Jr. had a concert at the Hilton that coincided with our opening. Joan Rivers has dined there and Tony Orlando is planning to stop by when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in town (this weekend, May 14).â&#x20AC;? The third anniversary of Patsyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Atlantic City is coming up this June and Sal says he is planning something to celebrate the occasion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been discussing that and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to try and do some kind of party for the third anniversary because thank God, even with the tough times we are still hanging in there.â&#x20AC;?

Richard Lewis

Where: Harrah’s Resort, A.C. When: Friday, May 13, 9pm How Much: $20

Richard Lewis: ‘From Hell’ and Back to Atlantic City. By Jeff Schwachter Today, a few months after the commercial originally aired — it has well over 1.2 million views on You Tube alone, at the time of this writing — the 30-second spot represents more than just another well-paying gig for Lewis, who kicks off a spring mini-tour in Atlantic City at Harrah’s Resort on Friday, May 13. In fact, Lewis considers himself lucky to have done the commercial at all as it has brought his image back into the mainstream during the time between Curb Your Enthusiasm seasons (Lewis says he just wrapped up the upcoming eighth season of the award-winning HBO series he stars in with Seinfeld creator Larry David). Now people call him “Mr. Snickers” and even Wikipedia considers the spot as one of the most important things Lewis has done in his career — right up there with 40 years of stand-up, being named one of the Top 50 comics of all-time by Comedy The Prince of Pain: Richard Lewis Central, his several TV stints and cameos, his more than f you were one of the millions 100 appearances on late-night TV shows, his of people who remained in their seats acclaimed film roles (especially in the superb to watch the television commercials Drunks), his many HBO specials, his recurring role on Curb, and the fact that he is credited during this past February’s Super Bowl — even by the Yale Book of Quotations — XLV, you probably saw the debut of a with coming up with the popular phrase Snickers ad featuring veteran comedian, “The [blank] from hell.” Obviously, it’s safe writer and actor Richard Lewis, along to say that Lewis has built a respectful career with Roseanne Barr. that goes way beyond chocolate, nougat, Lewis, dressed in his usual all-black ward- peanuts and caramel. robe, plays a logger who “just isn’t feel“The thing that was really wild,” Lewis ing” his chain-sawing lumber gig on this tells Atlantic City Weekly during a recent particular day and, wearing his trademark phone chat from California, where he dark shades, chain saw in hand, tells his resides with his wife of several years, Joyce site manager just that. Suddenly, a fellow Lapinsky, ”was being on a Super Bowl ad logger, dressed in traditional lumberjack for the first time. About 115 million people garb, comes over and hands Lewis (“Tony”) saw the first ad and then YouTube. So now a Snickers and essentially tells him that the I walk down the street, and it could be like candy bar will get him through the day people who have no clue what the history and will get him to feel the job at hand.

And I freeze them in the doubtlessly surrounded by office workers refrigerator, but . . . .” Lewis feels equally gracious about the laughing about the ad, especially the part when Barr gets hit by a runaway tree trunk upcoming season of the overwhelmingly successful Curb, in which he plays himself as and is knocked to the ground.

lead man Larry David’s best friend; his role in the upcoming movie Vamps, which he stars in, along with Alicia Silverstone, Wallace Shawn, Sigourney Weaver and Malcolm McDowell; and even his Friday the 13th show in Atlantic City, the city where Lewis has a long history, dating back to when he used to stroll the Boardwalk with his family, who drove down from the northern part of the state during Lewis’ childhood summers. “First of all, I love playing in Atlantic City,” says Lewis. “Occasionally my family [which lived in North Jersey] would go down to Atlantic City. I was real young and it was so boring for me.” But once Lewis started making a name for himself in the comedy world in the 1970s, he was actually playing the resort, as well as “nearly every venue” in Las Vegas and across the country. “I was trying to think of places I haven’t played,” says Lewis. “So I played Utah for the first time. It was unbelievable! I went to Armageddon [mode] immediately in my brain, but I don’t know how to say it other than I got four standing ovations in a row and these were Mormons. I had no idea. I went on Wikipedia an hour before the show, so I had some semblance of what their belief system was.” Lewis, whose 2001 memoir, The Other Great Depression, tells about his life as a recovering alcoholic, has been sober going on 17 years. “I’ve been in A.C. out of my mind and crazed,” recalls Lewis of his drinking and drugging days. “I’ve been in A.C. sober and the latter has been better; my shows have been better —but it doesn’t matter. I remember years ago, after I had made my rounds of just about every venue in the country, from Carnegie Hall to nightclubs to steak houses, you name it, and I said I just want to be picked up and led, almost blindfolded, to the backstage and get there a couple minutes before, and hear my name announced and be riddled with fear because, you know, I don’t ever really know what I’m going to say, and I don’t have an act and I don’t bring notes on stage — I haven’t for years.” Between work writing a new television pilot, which he just completed with an old friend from Saturday Night Live, and wrapping up filming on the new season of Curb (“I have a feeling that it’ll premiere in a few months and I also think that I’m really heavy in the first half of the year. I did one episode in particular [with a lot of] nudity, but it was the most fun that all of us I think ever had — because all of us are in it together. It was my favorite episode in the eight years.”), Lewis has been spending “about 80 hours at hotel rooms” in recent weeks,

“going over thousands of premises that I will hardly remember three percent of, but that’s the way I prepare. And I’ve been off the road for a while, so my first show will be there, in Atlantic City. So I’m going to be like shot out of a cannon when I get on that stage. “I’m starting to pack now. Another one of my addictions. I start packing for tours like weeks before and my wife is like, ‘Why are your suitcases out?’ And I go, ‘Well, I have the socks done.’ So that’s a problem and I’m trying to work on that. It really is. I go, ‘I have all the underwear and all the socks. I have all my AA batteries and my tapes.’ It’s really pathetic and it ruins the bedroom because I have all these suitcases out. But, you know, I’m out of my mind. I’m crazy and she knows it and she tolerates most of this stuff thankfully. One of Lewis’ many TV cameos was on a 2004 episode of the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, which stars Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen. So, what does a recovering alcoholic and drug user who lives in Los Angeles think of what’s happened to Sheen in recent months? “I think the whole thing is relatively pathetic, mostly for his children,” says Lewis. “I mean, I know Charlie, I know his family, I’m friends with Martin [Sheen, Charlie’s father] and I tried to help Charlie years ago. He obviously has a lifestyle that he believes in, and I don’t moralize about that, but [Sheen’s recent stand-up] tour, I mean — even if you’re an active drug addict or an alcoholic, it’s almost impossible not to see that this is a death waiting to happen. He’s gotten tons of support out here [in Los Angeles] you know, and we’re like, OK, you did your thing, but you need help.” Lewis, on the other hand — aside from his tour-packing disorder — is doing just fine, and experiencing a tremendous wave of creativity these days. The man who on stage is known for his peripatetic presence, “pacing, clutching at his hair, doing a kvetch ballet during each performance,” as described by one writer, may be known as the Prince of Pain, or the King of Neurosis — due to his edgy and always intense performances — but at least it’s better than Mr. Snickers. A more apt moniker, however, could be “Mr. Busy,” as Lewis has had a very busy first half of 2011. “I’ve been working,” he says. “Trying to get that [pilot] done before I get to Atlantic City. But Curb’s done, the movie’s done, so I have all these things done. It’s all good.” n

WHITNEYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RADAR

Freedom Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Free By Whitney Ullman

M

AY IS A BITTERSWEET MONTH for my grandfather, Albert Perdeck. He looks forward to celebrating Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day with his beautiful wife of 61 years, as well as his wonderful daughter and all of his grandchildren. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time for celebration and as they say in Yiddish, Nachas. This year my husband and I hosted Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day in our home with a nice meal that everyone is still raving about. (Yes, I cooked, and it was awesome.) All was good, but deep down itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a sad time for my grandfather because on May 11, 1945, he was almost killed when two Japanese Kamikazes hit his Navy Aircraft Carrier ship, the USS Bunker Hill, in Okinawa, Japan. Before both Kamikazes flew into his ship they each dropped a bomb that made a gaping hole in the flight deck. Almost 400 were killed and 385 were wounded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freedom isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t free,â&#x20AC;? he always reminds us. This memory from 66 years ago has never faded, and all these years later, my grandfather honors the memory of his beloved shipmates who were not as fortunate as he was. A testament to his dedication happened last week when he was on a bus trip to Atlantic City from his retirement community in Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s River to see the show 42nd Street at Resorts. Before the show, he was able to gamble a little, and with his winnings (he got lucky) he humbly donated them to his synagogue in memory of his shipmates and to show his thankfulness that he was spared. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very emotional time for anyone who

has served or is serving our country right now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important that we pray for our troops and give them the respect they deserve. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to try help in any way we can,

to The American Legion Squadron 396, 3218 W. Brigantine Ave., Brigantine, NJ, 08203. Otherwise you can either stop by the days of the event and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll

The U.S.S. Bunker Hill (courtesy of U.S. Navy National Museum of Naval Aviation)

because they are on the front lines fighting for us. Some colleagues of mine informed me about a really great opportunity called, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Operation Jersey Shore: Packages for our Troops.â&#x20AC;? On May 21-22, from 11am-9pm, items will be dropped off to the American Legion Post 396 in Brigantine and then will be shipped off to our troops in Afghanistan the next day. This fundraiser, hosted by the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 396, will be there to package everything. So if you would like to help here are three ways: 1. You can donate items that are listed on their Web site: operationjerseyshore.com. 2. Monetary donations can be made

receive a donation receipt or donate online via the Web site. 3. Spread the word. There is a Facebook page, Operation Jersey Shore, where you can share links or download the May 21-22 information. And of course, just tell others in your community about the event.

but this year, with everything planned, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sure to be an awesome experience. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get to party with The Rootsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; DJ ?uestlove, watch professional eaters try to finish 30 slices of pizza in one hour and also make history because this is set to be Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest street festival in recent times. All proceeds from the event go to the Alexâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lemonade Stand charity. Full disclosure: Along with several local members of the media, I will be one of the contest judges and AC Weekly editor Jeff Schwachterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band The Ocean Ryders will be paying its blend of roots-rock and blues, including a tribute to Bob Dylan (who turns 70 May 24), throughout the day on the VIP stage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one of a few stages at the event, which will feature live music from a slate of local bands throughout the day, 11am-8pm. Check out page 37 for more details and check pizzaslaughterfest.com to find out more about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in store for this gut-wrenching gastrolympic event. See you there! N

**** This weekend get your bellies ready because the pizza-eating festival, Tony Boloneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pizza Slaughterfest, will be held right here in Atlantic City on Saturday, May 14, from 11am-8pm outside Tony Boloneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (300 Oriental Ave.) near the Revel site. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event was a great time,

The Last Link To Pop Lloyd Exits The Field Emilio Navarro, the oldest surviving professional baseball player, died at 105 April 30. But he leaves behind a legacy of memories for Atlantic City. By Michael Pritchard

M

m a y 1 2 , 2 0 1 1 / A C W e e k ly. c o m

ichael Everett, director of the Atlantic City Pop Lloyd Committee, remembers the day he met Emilio Navarro, believed to have been the last surviving baseball player to have actually shared a field with Lloyd in the 1920s “He was in his 90s and he was traveling with his son,” Everett explains. “So I figured his son would only be a couple decades younger, so I show up with two wheelchairs to help them. And I waited as the plane emptied, and nothing. “I checked with the flight attendant and she said there’s nobody left on the plane. So I’m wondering what’s going on and finally I see his son Eric, and he’s fine, you know? He asks me: ‘Are you waiting for someone?’ And then Emilio comes walking out of the restroom. He sees the chair and laughs. Then he starts doing squats and toe touches and he’s laughing. I was stuck with these two wheelchairs.” But that was Navarro, flashy dresser, spirited dancer and filled with a contagious energy for more than a century of life. Navarro made several appearances at the committee’s annual Pop Lloyd Weekend celebration — held in Atlantic County, N.J. — featuring former Negro League players up until last October at the age of 105. By that time, Navarro wasn’t just remembered as the last player to take the field with Lloyd (on opposing teams), but was believed to be the oldest living professional baseball player anywhere. On April 30, however, Navarro’s long run finally ended as he died surrounded by family in his Ponce, Puerto Rico, home after suffering a heart attack. And he died with the recognition that so few Negro League players ever received. As a shortstop and leadoff hitter for the New York-based Cuban Stars of the Eastern Colored League, Navarro batted .337 in 1929. But he also played throughout Latin America during a long career including 20 years as a second basemen in Ponce. He was elected to the Puerto Rico Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992 and the Puerto Rico Sports Hall of Fame in 2004. “He was very, very proud of Puerto

Rico,” Everett recalls. “Whenever he was out, he would be dancing and laughing and people would just be thrilled by him. And there would always be a point that he would announce he was Puerto Rican. He was very proud of that.” And he was a good friend to the local

the 5-foot-5-inch Navarro, known as an impeccable dresser with a fondness for scotch. “I remember one time he said to me, ‘I’m free, I’m available and I’m an easy catch,’” Everett says laughing. Navarro was also honored with the

The always well-dressed Emillio Navarro at 105 committee. As part of the annual Pop Lloyd celebration, the committee hosts former Negro League players at a series of events and symposiums, held at the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and in Atlantic City over the past several years. But to have a player who had actually played against Lloyd made Navarro a star of the events. “I remember the first story he ever told me about playing against Pop,” Everett says. “He spoke only a little English, but he was telling me he was playing second and Pop tried to steal the base. He said, ‘Pop was safe, but I was out.’ “I really didn’t know what he meant at first,” Everett says. “But then he said, ‘No, I mean he knocked me out. I was out cold.’” Lloyd was known as a fierce competitor on the field, but as a true gentleman off it. But few cut as dashing a figure as

committee’s humanitarian award. “We gave it to him for all he did to promote the game and for the work he did with children,” says Everett. “He loved to be around kids and worked with them on the baseball fields all the time.” That seems to be a trait that many former Negro League players share. Lloyd himself was famous for working with Atlantic City’s youth, even as he took a job as a janitor in the city’s Indiana Avenue School. And it was a trait shared by Stanley “Doc” Glenn, who played catcher for the Negro National League’s Philadelphia Stars from 1944 to 1950. Glenn died April 16 at the age of 84. Glenn appeared every year at the Pop Lloyd events. So in the space of about two weeks, the committee has lost two dear friends. “That’s what makes this history, the programs that we do are so compelling,”

says Everett. “The primary sources, the players themselves, are leaving us. The Negro Leagues existed basically from the ’20s to 1950, so those surviving are very old.” Glenn, who published Don’t Let Anyone Take Your Joy Away: An inside look at Negro League baseball and its legacy, in 2006, was also known for his history of working with children. “Stanley really loved kids,” Everett says. “I remember one time my own son was injured, and he called me when he heard and really gave me a hard time about not calling him. ‘You know, I love that kid,’ he said. So I told him we were taking him to the children’s hospital in Philadelphia. He just asked, ‘What time?’ And then that morning he just walked through the hospital door and introduced himself to the doctor as my son’s Uncle Stanley. “We celebrate these guys for being wonderful athletes,” Everett says, “But they are really better human beings.” Glenn was active on the board of the Negro Leagues Baseball Players Association and just as Navarro could remember played against Lloyd, Glenn often recalled catching pitching legend Satchel Paige. “As hard as he threw, the ball was like a feather,” Glenn was quoted as saying. “It was so easy to catch him, mainly because he was always around the plate.” Those stories are getting harder to hear in the first person and the committee’s annual event may be one of the last places to remember these unsung men of baseball. “I don’t think you can ever really forget these guys,” says Everett. “I remember we honored Emilio on his 100th birthday. Somehow the kids at the vocational school managed to make this tremendous sheet cake. I don’t know if they got 100 candles on it, but it was a huge ball of fire. “And then Emilio started dancing.” Everett says. “And everyone is climbing up on the tables to see better and take pictures. And this cake is just blazing away next to him. I don’t think anyone in that room that night will ever forget him.” n

T

HOR, BASED ON THE MARVEL Comic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which in turn took its inspiration from Norse mythology â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and directed by Kenneth Branagh, is such a monumental waste of top tier talent, it adds an air of sadness to this prime example of cookie cutter filmmaking. That sadness is the only emotion this non-starter generates. If Natalie Portman hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already besmirched her Oscar win with Your Highness, and to a lesser degree, No Strings Attached, her decision to take the perky girlfriend role in a superhero movie would have done the trick. Then there is Anthony Hopkins, who has donned period costumes opposite Katharine Hepburn and Peter Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole (The Lion in Winter) and of more recent vintage, dazzled us with his swordplay as mentor to Antonio Banderas in The

Legend of Zorro. Director Branagh is best known for his acclaimed adaptions of Shakespeare into film (Henry V, As You Like It, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing) and calling his participation slumming would be an insult to most slums. Even a couple of beloved character actors are wasted, the versatile Colm Feore, who was such an imposing villain in The Chronicles of Riddick, and Idris Elba, so memorable in HBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Wire. Perhaps youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed by now that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve avoided talking about Thor, but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put it off any longer. It is not that the movie is horrible in obvious ways, it is just that it lacks any personality, anything particularly memorable. There is a singular lack of fire or edginess. The two main villains are snooze-worthy, our mighty hero has nice pecs and little else to entice us, and a standard â&#x20AC;&#x153;banished hero finds his humility and honorâ&#x20AC;? plot has been done so much better so many other times. Our cocky superhero Thor (Chris Hemsworth) from the planet Asgard, has angered his father the king (Hopkins) when he decides to bring his planet to the brink of war with their longtime enemies the Frost Giants (think Mr. Freeze from Batman but with a bit more style as embodied by Feore).

ATLANTIC GRILL

The mode of transportation that sends Thor to banishment on earth is very Stargate-like. Once he is hurled to earth, Thor no longer has any superpowers, except the ability to dazzle gorgeous geek scientist Jane Foster (Portman). Toss in shady government men-inblack types, and a dabble of Sword in the Stone mythology, this time featuring a hammer that bestows superpowers and can only be released into the hand of a worthy champion, and you have the story. That, and the fact that some of Thorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warrior pals want to rescue him from earth (we can relate), but Thorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jealous, power hungry brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will not let that ruin his chance to rule. The romance is cardboard, the special effects are average, the dialogue lacks any wit, the villains generate as much menace as a Philadelphia Flyers did in their series with the Boston Bruins and it all adds up to a movie thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ... Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry, what was I talking about? N

Ruth Gruber Photos and Film at JCC in Margate

World-famous photojournalist and author Ruth Gruber will be present for a special film event at the Katz Jewish Community Center in Margate on Thursday, May 12, 7pm. Following the screening of the documentary about her fascinating life, Ahead of Time, directed by Bob Richman, Gruber will answer questions from those in attendance. The event is free and open to the public. Gruber, now 99, was a special assistant to the Secretary of the Interior during World War II. In 1943 she was assigned a secret mission to escort nearly 1,000 Jewish refugees and wounded U.S. servicemen from Europe to Oswego, N.Y. During the voyage, the vessel was hunted by Nazi seaplanes and U-boats. While U.S. government agencies argued about whether they should be allowed to stay or be deported to Europe, Gruber lobbied to keep them through the end of the war. This was the only attempt by the U.S. to shelter Jewish refugees during the war. Her interviews with the refugees became the basis for her book, Haven: The Dramatic Story of 1000 World War II Refugees and How They Came to America, published in 1983. In the postwar years, Gruber covered the Nuremburg Trials and witnessed and documented the attempt in 1947 by the ship Exodus to deliver 4,500 Jewish refugees to Great Britain. Gruberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photos are on display this month at the Margate JCC. For information call 652-4699.
