PINKYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

Beggars Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Be without Permits By Pinky Kravitz

F

OR YEARS, THIS COLUMNIST AND RADIO host has been besieged by people complaining about beggars on the Atlantic City Boardwalk and throughout the community. When asked for some way to control this issue, I was informed that the courts have ruled that there is a legal right for people to beg. About six months ago, I read a story that said Raleigh, N.C., had instituted an ordinance that controlled begging. I brought it to the Boardwalk Committee and it was discussed at great length. Bruce Ward, a committee member, who at that time was the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s First Ward councilman, is an attorney and said he would be happy to research the issue. He contacted Irv Jacoby, a member of the Atlantic City solicitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff, and also a member of the Boardwalk Committee, who was pleased to be involved in such a project. Ward and Jacoby contacted Raleighâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s city solicitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office for a copy of their ordinance and its history. They learned that several other cities had instituted similar ordinances. In the meantime, Ward was named Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solicitor and Jacoby was named deputy solicitor. After careful scrutiny of the issue, they believed an ordinance could legally be instituted that would set parameters for begging in Atlantic City. On April 28, a city ordinance patterned around the Raleigh begging ordinance was introduced to City Council and was unanimously approved on the first reading. On May 12, the ordinance had its second and final reading and was again approved unanimously. I spoke with Mayor Lorenzo Langford about the ordinance and he said he would approve it the minute it reaches his desk. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the basic background for this ordinance. It was good to see a quick response from the mayor and City Council. It does not stop begging entirely â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as we noted previously, it is perfectly legal for people to beg â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but it sets a time limit and specific requisites for their doing so. The following is the ordinance: Whereas, there being numerous complaints from residents and visitors, particularly the elderly, regarding aggressive behavior on the streets of Atlantic City, and whereas all residents and guests should have free and unhampered access to public areas of the city without fear of harassment or intimidation, the following are unlawful acts: 1. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aggressively begâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is defined as speaking or following a person in a manner that would cause a reasonable person to fear bodily harm or the commission of a criminal act upon the person or property upon the personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immediate possession or would intimidate another person into giving money or goods. 2. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ask,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;begâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;solicitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; all mean to ask for money or goods as a charity, whether by words, bodily gestures, signs or other means. 3. Pedestrian or vehicular interference means to walk, stand, sit, lie, or place an object in such a manner as to block passage by another person or vehicle, or to require another person or a driver of a vehicle to take evasive action to avoid physical contact. 4. Public places means an area generally visible to public view and includes the Boardwalk, alleys, bridges, buildings, driveways, parking lots, parks, plazas, sidewalks and streets opened to the general public, including those that serve food or drink or provide entertainment and the doorways and Join us on Facebook:

entrances to buildings, shops or dwellings and the ground and closing them. Permits â&#x20AC;&#x201D; It shall be unlawful for any person to ask, beg, or solicit alms (money for the needy) upon the streets or elsewhere in the city without first obtaining a permit from the city. Persons may apply for permission to ask, beg or solicit alms, which such permission shall be issued annually upon application and review by the Department of Licensing and Inspections. The permit shall be valid at for a period not to exceed one year and available at no charge or fee to the applicant. A photo ID is required with the application. A warrant check will be conducted before a permit is issued. At the time a permit is issued, the guidelines relating to the activity will be explained to the permittee. Prohibited Acts â&#x20AC;&#x201D; No person may ask, beg, or solicit alms, including money and other things of value, in an aggressive manner in any public place. Acts authorized as an exercise of oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constitutional right to picket, the right to legally protest any acts authorized by permit or parades issued pursuant to the code of the City of Atlantic City shall not constitute obstruction of pedestrian or vehicular traffic. 1. A person is guilty of pedestrian interference if, in a public place, that person intentionally obstructs pedestrian or vehicular traffic or if that person aggressively begs. 2. No person may ask, beg or solicit alms in any public transportation vehicle or at any bus or train station or stop. 3. No person may ask, beg or solicit alms within 100 feet of any automatic teller machine (ATM) 4. No person may ask, beg or solicit alms from any operator or occupants of a motor vehicle that is in traffic on a public street. 5. No person may ask, beg or solicit alms from any operator or occupant of a motor vehicle on a public street in exchange for blocking, occupying or reserving a public parking space or directing the operator occupant to a public parking space. 6. No person may ask, beggars solicit alms in exchange for cleaning motor vehicle windows while the vehicle is in traffic or on a public street. 7. No person may ask, beg or solicit alms in exchange for protecting, watching, cleaning, repairing or painting a motor vehicle or bicycle while it is parked on a public street. 8. No person may ask, beggars solicit alms on private property or residential property without permission from the owner or occupant. 9. No person may ask, beg or solicit alms between the hours of 8pm and 8am the following day. 10. No person may ask beggars solicit alms within 25 feet of the entrance or exit of any business establishment where the express intent of such asking, begging or soliciting alms is to solicit directly from the employees or patrons of such business establishment. n

the Cape may music festival, which runs to June 10, remains one of the signature events for Cape may and the mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts in a city that’s become known for jazz and music festivals. the 21st annual installment is still the most wide-ranging in musical genres of the center’s festivals, offering up everything from Celtic fiddlers to a yearly commitment to classical chamber music. the fiddler appears tonight (may 20) as kevin Burke and Cal Scott play the Star and Sea Church on the Washington Street mall. But the festival also is known for its classical side and most importantly chamber music. the new york Chamber ensemble appears may 25 and June 1 and 8 and the new Jersey Symphony orchestra Chamber Players appear June 6. the chamber concerts take place at the episcopal Church of the Advent. And just for good measure, the Bay-Atlantic Symphony performs June 3 offering up some Bach and mozart and the Atlantic Brass Band performs may 30 in a free concert at the Rotary bandstand. Also on tap, jazz artist George mesterhazy (may 23) and percussionist Babatunde lea (pictured), June 10. If you can’t find something you like in that eclectic line-up, you’re not trying.

Coast the Coast to Help Cure MS

the new Jersey metro Chapter of the national multiple Sclerosis Society will host the 19th annual Bike mS Coast the Coast ride this Saturday and Sunday, may 22-23. the event is expected to draw about 1,500 cyclists in five different ride lengths, including the two-day, 170-mile ride that starts at monmouth University in long Branch, ends Saturday at Pinelands Regional high School in tuckerton, and continues to Cape may on Sunday. there are also single-day rides of 25 or 50 miles Saturday, or 85 miles either day. Prior to participation, cyclists collect pledge minimums ($350 for the full 170 miles) to be applied toward finding a cure for mS — a chronic and often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. An estimated 10,000 people are living with mS in the new Jersey metro Chapter area alone, and about 400,000 nationally. “the crisp ocean air, the quaint shore towns and the sounds of the Jersey Shore offer cyclists a terrific feeling of clarity and freedom, and are some of the reasons cyclists return year after year for this ride,” says Bonnie Bardinas, public relations representative for the national multiple Sclerosis Society n.J. metro Chapter. “While cyclists ride for many different reasons — camaraderie with other riders, exercise, the challenge, an organized ride or fundraising — their efforts cumulatively aid in contributing toward the creation of a world free of multiple sclerosis.” last year the event raised $825,000, says Bardinas, and the goal for this year is to raise $1 million. over the past decade it has consistently raised in the $750,000 range.

ing a good time,â&#x20AC;? adds Boyington of the Bike Night crowd. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not talking outlaw bikers here.â&#x20AC;? There is also a 4-7pm daily happy hour at the Lantern Light that includes â&#x20AC;&#x153;You Call Itâ&#x20AC;? Tuesday, where any cocktail is just $4.50. On this Friday night, bartenders Lauren and Corinne kept customers informed of drink specials and daily blackboard specials at the bar. Every Monday night there is a $2 Mexican menu at the bar that offers such items as cheesesteak chiquita with jalapeno cheese sauce, quesadilla con queso, chili perritos con queso, and margaritas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all for $2 each. The Historic Towne of Smithville has pre-Revolutionary War roots but, beginning in 1951, Fred and Ethel Noyes established the framework for what would become a national historic landmark. The Historic Towne is sited on the east side of Lake Meone, and was purchased by Tony and Fran Coppola, and Chuck and Laura Bushar, in 1996 (the Village Greene, sited on the west side of Lake Meone, was purchased by Ed and Wendy Fitzgerald in 1997). The restaurant that was once called Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Place was refurbished and renamed Fred & Ethelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lantern Light Tavern in honor of the original owners. n A C W E E K LY.

HERE WAS MUCH TO CONTEND with last Friday evening â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an impending storm, locals laying back in anticipation of that weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mayfest, a season-defining win by the Flyers â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but the lounge area of Fred & Ethelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lantern Light Tavern gradually gained a gathering as musician Jesse Boyington got rolling into his first set. It looked like a regular Friday-evening routine for many of them, and nearly all appeared to know well the singer/guitarist whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performed locally for the better part of three decades. Boyingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hour-long first set at the historic tavern included mellow rock classics by the Beatles, Eagles, Cat Stevens, Santana and others sung in accompaniment of an amplified Ovation Balladeer acoustic guitar. Waiting in the wings was a Fender electric heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d use later that night when the pace at the Lantern Light picked up. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it here,â&#x20AC;? says Boyington, a Smithville resident who often performs with keyboardist/vocalist Sam Marini as the duo Sam & Jesse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been playing [at the Lantern Light] quite a while, and know everybody here and a lot of people in town. Generally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start [around 7:30pm] kind of mellow since thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a dinner crowd, and as the night goes on and it becomes more of a nightlife crowd Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pick it up a bit. My last set usually gets pretty rocked out and wild, and sometimes people will even get up and dance [in a small, cleared out section near the bar].â&#x20AC;? Sam & Jesse also play every Tuesday night at the nearby Smithville Inn and do regular gigs at Cousin Marioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Mays Landing. The Lantern Lightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revolving slate of Friday and Saturday night entertainment features another longtime area singer/guitarist, Paul Tozz, along with The Jukebox Kings, The Pickles and other performers. Starting next month, Tozz will jam every Tuesday night on the Lantern Lightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outdoor patio area (which can accommodate about 70) when Bike Night returns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a popular night during the summer,â&#x20AC;? said Lantern Light general manager Tina Wolfschmidt. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have Paul playing outside, there will be special parking just for the motorcycles, and we do $5 burgers, $2 Yuengings and $3 Jagermeisters specials.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all nice, friendly people hav-

REMEMBER WHEN LOCAL WRITER Bruce Jennings released his first book of poetry in the late 1990s. I Just Explained What Heaven Is... is a book of poetry that reads like a book of revelations. The book captures the everyday life of a black “intellectual.” While many poetry books by young black writers tend to be screams for peace and freedom with the volume on high (and I’m not saying there’s a thing wrong with those books), Jennings work reveals more complexities. With none of the loud and over excessive hype of today’s spoken word, and twice the heart, Jennings’ first book has become a classic. When I heard that Jennings was releasing a second book of poetry, I was excited to see where his poetic pen would take readers this time. Surprisingly, Jennings’ goal today is to engage and take readers with him to new ground. He’s established his own publishing company, Silent Noise, based in Mays Landing, and his dreams and accomplishments so far are much bigger than his “bark.” I caught up with Jennings a few days before his book signing/company launch party at Cousin Mario’s in Mays Landing last Saturday (May 15) to ask him about Join us on Facebook:

starting up publishing company. “The hardest part was developing a business strategy and doing the research,” says Jennings. “I knew if I was going to do this I’d be competing with everyone else who is self publishing as well as the major publishers so I wanted to get as much info as possible.” Jennings described one thing that his research showed. “Publishers, big and small,” says Jennings, “have to be ready for this new millennium. E-books are about to change the publishing game for everyone.” E-books are considered the industry wild cards, which are forcing every major electronics company to get their version of an e-reader out in the market place. Likewise, all of the major publishers have a digital media department now or are developing one. I asked Jennings how Silent Noise would be different from other self-publishing companies? “Silent Noise isn’t really a self-publishing company,” Jennings tells me. “We have deals with other writers, artists, sculptors and photographers. Just like a major company, once we sign them all the artist has to do is produce the art. We will take care of the marketing, printing and so on.” Jennings adds: “We’re the first publishing company in

by Jennings again take the reader on a tour of a multi-dimensional and well lived life. In one piece, Jennings shares the metaphors of family life as he poetically packs his son’s back pack. What I love about Jennings is that he writes about all the things that most people overlook. Jennings sees these gems and exposes them with some of his literary brilliance. I have not finished Brown Dress Thoughts, but my summer reading list has just gotten a little “browner” and I am very excited about it. Quick note: Please join me on Thursday, the South Jersey area to look for and nur- May 20, for the innaugural Causes and Awareness Day at the Ram’s Head Inn in ture African-American writers.” The packed launch party last Saturday Absecon from 5-8pm.

NNIE DUKE, WHO APPEARS this weekend at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort in support of the casinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Series of Poker super satellite event, has been a top poker pro since the 1990s. But before she picked up the game, there was an Annie Duke who attended the University of Pennsylvania and planned on being a teacher. And in many ways, Duke did become a teacher â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a poker teacher. She has released numerous DVDs and books on the game and just recently launched a poker app, which provides an odds calculator and daily tips on poker. Earlier this month, Duke was at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Atlantic City teaching classes for a special session of the WSOP Academy and even had a special teaching session with George Stephanopoulos, which aired on Good Morning America earlier this month. Why does she work so hard to make others good at the game? Easy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she loves the game and she wants you to love it too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously teaching has always appealed to me because at one time I was considering doing it as a career,â&#x20AC;? she tells AC Weekly in a telephone interview from her Los Angeles home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then I got really into poker and ended up choosing that as a career. But I never really strayed away from my interest in sort of developing intellect. Poker has given me so much and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given me such a cool, interesting, incredible life. So I feel that if I have the capability of teaching well, I really want to teach people to enjoy the game the way I enjoy the game.â&#x20AC;? Of course, learning poker skills offers more than the usual benefits of learning other games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting about poker as recreation is that you can make money at it, which is unusual for recreation,â&#x20AC;? says Duke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But also, the better you are the more fun it is. So Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really committed to trying to make people better at this game, which creates more enjoyment for people.â&#x20AC;? Of course as one of the top poker pros in the country, you have to wonder if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worried sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ever face down one of her own students at a final table. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not trying to create professionals,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my goal. I mean if somebody does end up becoming a profesJoin us on Facebook:

sional and doing well because of something I taught them, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really cool, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think most people want to be professionals. There are 70 million players in this country, the majority of which do it recreationally and I want to give those players more of a lifetime experience with the game that will be fun for them.â&#x20AC;? Part of the experience could include checking out Duke as she makes a rare appearance in an East Coast poker room when she plays in Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s room starting at 11am on Saturday, May 22. Duke will also give some welcoming remarks to players at the satellite events at 6pm Friday, May 21, followed by a Q&A session at 8pm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, of course, is the World Series of Poker and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big part of who I am as a player and what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m associated with,â&#x20AC;? Duke says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really happy to be supporting Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and especially to be supporting their super satellites for the main event. I love trying to help grow poker and I think Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is one of the keystones in that.â&#x20AC;? Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friday appearance comes quickly after she hosts a charity celebrity poker tournament at the Commerce Casino in California Thursday night. The appearance is through her organization the Decision Education Foundation, which develops critical thinking curriculum for K-12 students and supports After School All Stars, an after-school enrichment program started by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Duke will be playing there until midnight and then catching an early morning plane to appear at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. We should note that traveling west to east, the time difference will be against her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yeah, it should be interesting,â&#x20AC;? she says. But then, if she can help somebody learn a little about the game, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be worth it. Also at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Saturday, the casino offers the first satellite event where players can win a $10,000 seat at the WSOP Main Event this July in Las Vegas. The $2,000 + $150 Deepstack event begins at 11am. While Duke also appears at 11am, she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be playing in the Deepstack event.

Tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NO COINCIDENCE THAT DENIS Leary is returning to Atlantic City this weekend to kick off the second goaround of his limited-date comedy tour. The 52-year-old comedian and star of the FX Network drama-comedy series Rescue Me is hoping for lightening to strike twice when he takes the stage of Borgataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Event Center on Saturday, May 22. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The [casino] audiences are really sort of fanatical,â&#x20AC;? Leary explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not judgmental at all. They just come alive.â&#x20AC;? Leary, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be joined on his 11-city tour by comedians and fellow Rescue Me cast members Lenny Clarke and Adam Ferrara, says he was tipped off to the advantages of launching the tour in a casino by several comedian friends who had preceded him and pronounced the Borgata as the perfect venue to debut the live show, which will also feature musical guests The Enablers with the Rehab Horns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once the lights go down ... theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just rumbling in the seats,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to say that was one of our reasons we went back this year, because it really jump-started the tour.â&#x20AC;? The first show of any tour can often be rough, as the performers shake off any rust and get familiar with new material. But of the 15 shows on the 2009 Rescue Me tour, Leary says the Borgata gig remains one of his favorites. In addition to the enthusiastic audience, Leary says he was impressed with the 2,200-seat Event Center as a comedy venue, which made launching the tour an artistic breeze. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to tell you in terms of the sound and lighting, and backstage setup, and the set-up for the audience as well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terrific,â&#x20AC;? he says. Learyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans that follow him on Twitter have been getting previews of the material heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be performing on the tour. He says he signed up for social networking service partly to remain â&#x20AC;&#x153;competitiveâ&#x20AC;? with fellow comedians who use Twitter to keep in touch with their fans. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I started to see comedians that I know ... doing it. I thought, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think of funny stuff every day,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? he explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Steven Colbertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the only guy. Then I saw Conan [Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien] go on, and I have to admit when I see Conan doing stuff, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you know, I can do that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I thought his stuff was really funny.â&#x20AC;? Twitter has proven to be an effective outlet for Learyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedy, since he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work comedy clubs and theaters when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

filming Rescue Me, which will come to an end next year after seven seasons. Leary, who began his comedy career while he was a student at Emerson College in Boston, says his comedy sets usually evolve out of a series of bullet points he works with on stage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I run off at the mouth from these bullet points that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve written down, and I kind of improvise my way through it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then, after a few weeks, it starts to form itself into a typical set.â&#x20AC;? His tweets on Twitter â&#x20AC;&#x153;offer a glimpseâ&#x20AC;? into whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on his mind on any given day and have emerged as his electronic notes page. A topical comedian, Leary has been musing about everything from the Vaticanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troubles with pedophile priests to the allegations of sexual misconduct surrounding Pittsburgh Steelersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those things are probably things that are going to show up in the show when we get started,â&#x20AC;? he predicts. Now that FX has announced that Rescue Me will end within days of the 10th anniversary of 9-11, Leary says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s focusing on the finale of the series, which centers on the professional and personal lives of a group of New York City firefighters. Leary knows precisely how the series will end; in addition to being the star and the creator of the series, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s writers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just finished writing it,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wrote the final two episodes. I think it satisfies people. Not that we were out to please the audience, but we wanted to do something that was organic and, obviously, fit the characters, and fit the tone of the show, which is a group of firefighters who deal with life and death all the time.â&#x20AC;? Without giving away too much, he says the show will wrap up by dealing with a familiar subject thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a recurring theme: mortality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, it will deal with the mortality of the characters and it will deal with it, hopefully, in the traditional Rescue Me way,â&#x20AC;? he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;which is with some biting drama and some really, really funny comedy.â&#x20AC;? n

O YOU GIVE TO CHARITY? Do you wish you knew more about local non-profits so you can donate your time and/or money? Well, this Thursday, May 20, you will have the opportunity to get to know 16 local organizations at the first 4 A Star Causes and Awareness Day event at the Ram’s Head Inn from 5-8pm. Ava Holly Lewis, the founder of 4 A Star has a great mantra: “Let’s look out for each other.” It’s such a simple concept, but in this dog-eat-dog world it’s refreshing to meet someone with such passion for life and willingness to do what it takes to make people aware of causes that are dear to her heart. One in particular is brain cancer research because Lewis’ mother passed away from it last year. That was the driving force for her determination in forming her own nonprofit eeFuerst Foundation to support this important cause. More information can be found at 4astar.com. And FYI, this event falls on Lewis’ mother’s birthday, so this not only means a lot to everyone participating and attending, but this date is very meaningful for Ava. Come out and support her as well as her cause and the community. The 15 other participants in this event are the Make a Splash Foundation, The Jan-ai Scholarship Fund, Community Quest, The Alzheimer’s Association, Pink Ribbon Associates, St. Baldricks, S.O.S., Sammie’s Mission, The Alcove, The Noyes Museum, Absecon Lighthouse, The Shirley Mae Breast Cancer Foundation, The Community Food Bank, Hireability and The Donald L. Perry Foundation. Ava plans to have this event annually so if you have a non-profit that isn’t represented, make sure to show up and see how it can be involved next year. On top of showcasing all of these local groups there will also be fun, low-cost activities, such as a pinning event, a dollar dance and a shoe exhibit. Plus there will be several celebrity tribute performers such as Ted Prior as Elvis and Linda Axelrod as Charro. The event itself is free and includes light appetizers and a cash bar. So come out and support Ava and learn about how you can help out with our local organizations.

Did you know that according to the National Philanthropic Trust, 89 percent of households give to charity and that historically charitable giving rises about one-third as fast as the stock market? Amazing statistics, right? That goes to show you that most households are giving in one way or another. I am proud of that and proud of you. We are all blessed with the ability to give and I truly believe that the more you give the more you get back. Giving doesn’t always mean monetarily; you can volunteer your time (such as during this weekend’s volunteer clean-up of Atlantic County; see acua.com or call 272-6950 for details). So find a cause that is meaningful to you, look up their Web site, call the local branch and see how you can help. It may be as easy as manning a table at an event, or stuffing envelopes, or brainstorming new ideas. I personally love The Alcove Center for Grieving Children and Their Families. I serve on their board and fundraising committee and they would love to have some more volunteers. Check out thealcove.org for more information. Speaking of giving back and helping out a cause that you are passionate about, I have to give a shout out to Mike Hauke and Nick Bonsignore, owners of Tony Boloney’s in Atlantic City, for raising awareness and funds for Alex’s Lemonade Stand through the First Pizza Slaughter Fest in Atlantic City this past weekend (see pics online at acweekly.com and on p. 48). What a great event that brought the city together in a fun way. Congratulations on the success! n

Slash Where: The Borgata, Atlantic City When: Saturday, May 22, 9pm How Much: Sold Out

Guitar icon doesn’t need the ‘drama’ any more, tours in support of new solo album. By Ed Condran

S

M A Y 2 0 , 2 0 1 0 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

LASH IS KNOWN FOR PLAYING a leading role in a pair of seminal bands, Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver. The charismatic guitar hero has also shared the stage with a pair of larger than life vocalists. Axl Rose fronted the former and Scott Weiland belted out the latter’s tunes. But these days Slash is on his own and he’s doing fine. The legendary guitarist, who will perform Saturday, May 22, at the Borgata, is on tour in support of his new selftitled solo album. In an interview with Atlantic City Weekly, Slash seems like a laid-back character who doesn’t need to be under the lights with a high-maintenance vocalist. “I’ve done my share of that,” Slash tells Atlantic City Weekly. “I’m good without it. I’m a little older and more mature. I’m in another phase of life. I don’t need the drama.” However, drama has followed the hardrock player for much of his adult life. “I’ve dealt with it,” Slash says. “It’s all good. I have great memories of how life was back in the day.” L.A. scenesters still talk about the mythic G’N’R club shows on the Sunset Strip and about how much fun the goodtime boys had backstage. Slash and his G’N’R pals were the poster boys of the Strip during the hedonistic ’80s. “We were young and hungry for everything rock stood for,” Slash says. “It was a good time. We were so young. We made the best of that situation.” G’N’R’s groundbreaking disc, Appetite For Destruction, wasn’t a figurative title. The mellow husband and father admits that he indulged in rock’s excesses. Slash notes that he has a few life preservers. “There were two things that helped me survive, my guitar and my music and sometimes that wasn’t even enough,” he says. “The real grounding factor is my family. That’s been a real stabilizing force. When London, my oldest was born, I still hadn’t learned my lesson. I still toyed with self-destruction. But that’s not they way I am anymore. Those wild and crazy days are part of my past. Those days are so gone. I need self-preservation more than anything. But I’m good now.” Life is a far cry from Slash’s days with Rose, who apparently could drive anyone

to drink or drugs. “I loved the Guns ‘N’ Roses experience,” Slash says. “It was amazing and I’m still proud of it, butworking with Axl is a little different than working with anyone else. It’s not easy and I’m sure I’m not the only person to feel that way. It was challenging. But I have no regrets.”

Even though Slash, who is on tour with Alter Bridge vocalist Myles Kennedy as his vocalist, is living the straight life, images of his wasted youth continue to appear. Photos of the original G’N’R lineup pop up on the covers of magazines such as Rolling Stone. “People love us from that era and

I can’t blame them,” Slash says. “We embodied something that really touched people and still hits them today. That’s a really good thing. Even though I’ve moved on and I’m a very different person now in a very different situation, I can appreciate all of that. We made some amazing music. Do I put on Appetite For Destruction? No. But when I hear the songs on the radio or at sporting events, I love it. Why should I feel differently? The fans loved our shows. You never knew when we were going onstage. Much was going on backstage. We were young, excited kids who were having the greatest time in our moment. Who wouldn’t react like we did? We went from nowhere to the top in a relatively short period of time. We did it on our terms. It also burned out pretty quickly. But that’s rock n’ roll. We weren’t the only band to go through that.” No, but G’N’R was one of the most celebrated groups of the era in part because the members of the band embraced the extremes. “That style of living can be a lot of fun,” Slash admits. “But it also can be very dangerous. If you take a lot of chances, you can get burned. I’m fortunate that I lived through it,” Don’t bet on a Guns ‘N’ Roses reunion with Slash. “That would be hard to imagine,” Slash says. “But I have my memories of being in that band. It’s interesting to me, that no matter what, that band is still on people’s minds. It’s on the edge of people’s lips, good or bad and that’s cool. I had some of my best times with those guys and that’s all I need. I still have music. I like where I’m at now. I’m growing. Life is good. I can’t complain. I’m having a blast playing out and just doing my thing. I’m happier now than ever. I get to play the music that I love. I have my family. I’m in a really cool space in life. I wouldn’t trade spots with anyone or the version of myself from 20 years ago. I look at the good side of everything I’ve done. It’s a shame more people can’t do that. They like to dwell on the negative. It would be easy to do that with Guns ‘N’ Roses, but there was so much good that came from that band. I choose to look back at that and focus on the cool stuff I’m doing now.” n see more online @

Weinrottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World

One Atlanticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jon Weinrott has traveled the globe to add ideas to his culinary palette By Frank Gabriel

O

PENING ONE ATLANTIC LAST December on Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Pier Shops at Caesars must have generated a strange sense of dĂŠjĂ  vu for its chef/owner Jon Weinrott. The Philadelphia-based catering czar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; founder and owner of the prestigious Peachtree and Ward â&#x20AC;&#x201D; actually provided food for a grand opening event here in 1983 when the property was rebranded as The Shops at Ocean One. Weinrottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crews similarly created victuals for two separate events at the time the current Pier began service in 2006. Though the locale might be familiar territory, the scope and magnitude of Weinrottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest venture should astonish even the most jaded observer. Start with this: Upon opening, One Atlantic immediately becomes the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most spectacular event venue, a gorgeous 10,000 square-foot behemoth dangling 100 feet out, and 100-feet up, over the foamy, green Atlantic, capable of hosting 1,000 for cocktails or 500 for seated dinners. This stunning environment was given great consideration in the design process. Twenty-five foot glass walls throughout enhance the naturally panoramic vistas. Situated above the fountain at The Pierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back end, on a fourth-floor perch only accessible by private elevator, One Atlanticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name may correctly be interpreted as a literal address. Just as important, what sets this space apart from industry peers is the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unique, one-source provider business model.

Simply put: book here, relax and enjoy. For events, One Atlanticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including Weinrott, executive chef Greg Smith and marketing manager Wesley Adams â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will meet to discuss your tastes, preferences and plans. Then, simply remove yourself from the process and let them do all the leg work. They have already-developed partnerships with â&#x20AC;&#x153;the best vendors in the area,â&#x20AC;? according to Adams. This includes: florists, dancers, musical performers, photo/videographers, artists, jugglers and pretty much anyone you could possibly imagine. To clients, this means no stress, worry or need to micromanage. Weinrott, charismatic and charming, possesses an educational and culinary background few can match. (Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a huge Bob Dylan fan.)

After receiving a BA/MA in English from Tufts University, he was lured into the food industry along with future wife, Lori. He tells the story of how the young couple obtained their first catering job shortly after graduation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lori told me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jon, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to [Marthaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] Vineyard and cooking lunch for [famed New England playwright/ social activist] Lillian Hellman.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? After such an auspicious beginning, preparing fresh, local bluefish caught on line by Hellman herself, the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s word-ofmouth business spread quickly. Their next step was traversing the globe in search of culinary edification. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I picked grapes in Chablis and apples in British Columbia,â&#x20AC;? recalls Weinrott. His time in that French region was spent working an apprenticeship for La Cote San Jacques, a three-star Michelin restaurant.

Returning stateside, the couple settled in Philadelphia, opening a pair of restaurants: Two Quails, and then the Fairmount Firehouse in the mid-1980s. Weinrott characterizes the era as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the very beginning of the American food movement.â&#x20AC;? Continuing to elaborate about his own cuisine and style, the literate chef adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s based on classical French tradition, Escoffier and all the mother sauces, adding native flavors of the U.S.â&#x20AC;? This includes embracing the emergent â&#x20AC;&#x153;foragingâ&#x20AC;? trend. One Atlanticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Web site actually includes a video clip of several staff members visiting regional farms, in order to obtain obscure, sometimes grownto-order, vegetables and fruits. One Atlanticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission pointedly includes utilizing prime edible elements from within a 100 mile radius of Atlantic City as much as possible. That gourmet catering approach is accompanied by a comparable amount of attention paid to beverages. The professional services of an awardwinning mixologist and an expert sommelier are available to provide custom cocktails and hand-picked wines coordinated to fit any menu. Having booked over 60 events this year at press time, One Atlantic seems to have gained a firm foothold in Atlantic City. Already on the schedule for this summer as part of the Atlantic City Food and Wine Event is a winetasting event hosted by Queer Eye for the Straight Guyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ted Allen (also a regular judge on Bravoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Top Chef) n

Flyleaf Where: House of Blues at Showboat, A.C. When: Friday, May 21, 7pm How Much: $25

By Jeff Schwachter

Flyleaf Is Mindful of Death From Texas to Afghanistan to Atlantic City, on its journey to success, this rock band has turned emotional pain into inspiring music.

L

M A Y 2 0 , 2 0 1 0 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

AST JULY 4 WEEKEND, THE members of the Texas hard-rock quintet Flyleaf weren’t playing another rock festival or arena, they were in Afghanistan, playing for troops after wrapping up the band’s sophomore album Memento Mori, which was released November 2009 and debuted in the Top 10 album charts. The overseas experience was unforgettable, sad and eerie for the platinumselling band, as its members had just chosen the Latin phrase for the title of its album, which translates to “Be Mindful of Death.” But death and extraordinary coincidences are two of many things that brought this band together in the first place back in 2000. The band’s front woman Lacey Mosley, 28, says that after moving around the country and having a troubled time as a teenager, she met her current band members in a Texas church. It was sort of an inspired convergence, as the band soon formed, sold a million copies of its selftitled debut — originally released in 2005 and re-issued as a CD/DVD combo in 2007 — and went on to become one of the biggest hard-rock bands of the ’00s. It’s been a long and painful journey for Flyleaf at times, but its members’ sense of perseverance and faith has been an inspiration to millions of fans. Flyleaf brings its Unite & Fight tour to the House of Blues at Showboat on Friday, May 21. The phrase comes from a line in the song “Beautiful Bride” from the new album. During two candid phone inter-

views with the charming, endearing and Grammy-nominated Mosley over the past week from the road, the one-time die-hard Nirvana fan explains how the band chose the name for its new album, how the band formed and why they don’t consider themselves a “Christian rock band.” (Read the entire interview at acweekly.com)

‘The thing that we learned the most was that our lives are short and precious.’ What memory sticks out from your time in Afghanistan? We went to this really small base, which is out in the middle of nowhere. And it was just — I mean they were out in the middle of nowhere, and obviously they didn’t have much to live on, and there were only about 30 to 40 people there, but it was one of the most dangerous places. ... And it had only been recently that they were allowed to have visitors. It had been like three years before that. So the person who was escorting us was really excited to have us there. He was responsible for boosting the troops’ morale and he really cared about those guys out there because they had a lot of people die out there and had been kind of isolated for a while. So we went out there and we got the chance to talk with a

couple of the guys after we performed. We just brought some guitars and sang right in front of them, no microphones or nothing — just acoustic. And after we got to really talk to them and hear their heart — and there were a lot of heavy things that came out that they wanted to talk about — and it was just really amazing. And then the next day, after we had left [the base] we heard that two of the guys that we had just spoken with got hit by a roadside bomb and were killed. The very next day. It was the heaviest thing ever, just to think that that was one of the last opportunities for someone to talk to them and let them know that they’re appreciated and valued and loved [back home] and that their lives were worth something. Wow, that really fits in with your latest album’s title. Memento Mori, right. We felt really immersed in the whole theme of Memento Mori while we were there, wearing body armor the whole time. And them always telling us where the bomb shelters were; it was just a constant reminder that you’re mortal. How did you come up with the name Memento Mori? We were looking for artwork for the album and we were thinking about doing a triptych for the packaging. We had seen one CD by [metal band] Demon Hunter that had a triptych and we thought that was so cool. So, we kind of wanted to do

something like that. And so we were looking up different triptychs and we came across a piece of artwork that was a triptych by Hans Memling and it was called “Earthly Vanity and Divine Salvation.” ... And underneath that was the phrase, when we found [the image] online: “memento mori.” And we just researched where the phrase comes from and what it meant and we just thought it was interesting, the phrase. I remember just writing in on my arm and just thinking about it for a few days. And at the time we were meeting together and rehearsing the [new] songs and we put them all down, the ones we wanted to use for the record — we had about 25 songs to pick from. And when we picked out the songs we wanted to use for the record, when we looked over the group of songs we kind of saw that message jump out and it kind of hit everybody [in the band] the same way. Because we have all been through a lot of stuff. With a lot of [us], close family members have passed away over the past five years that we have been touring. And the thing that we learned the most was that our lives are short and precious. ... It makes life make more sense when you remember that.

Did you have the name for the album before your tour of Afghanistan? It was so weird. We went to Afghanistan right after we came up with the name. It was pretty crazy.

It seems like you guys picked the perfect name for the album. Yeah, it was really strange. I mean, I remember how many times we all looked at each other [while in Afghanistan] and were like — because while we were over there, Sameer [Bhaattacharta, guitarist] didn’t come because his cousin was diagnosed with cancer and she was only 22, a really close cousin of his, and they said that she wasn’t going to make it and that she might pass away while we were over there, so he stayed home and my husband [the band’s guitar technician] actually played guitar while we were in Afghanistan. So we were already getting e-mails from Sameer about what was going on and all going through that together because his family’s like our family. And then at the same time, while that happened, our drummer’s uncle, who we all knew and were really close to, had

FEATURE (Continued from page 46) a heart attack and passed away while we were in Afghanistan and then that thing happened with the soldier who passed away the day after we talked to him, and it was just so heavy and we just kept looking at each other and understanding the meaning of the album even more. It was kind of like the name came to us, like a message to us. And then right before that I went through something pretty heavy that made me think about my own life and so anyway, it was really strange. But in kind of a prophetic way.

And I just met everybody — I moved [from Arlington, Texas] to Temple [Texas] in 2000, so I’ve known everybody since then. I started going to church where everybody else [in the band] was going and that’s where we met.

I read somewhere that you said, “finding faith saved my life.” How so? Well, as an atheist. I mean a pretty outIt will be interesting to come up with your spoken jerk atheist — I hated Christians next album’s title. You should name it — that’s what I mean by that. We’ve Won the Lottery! or something. From what age were you an atheist? Yeah [cracking up], exactly. From like 10 to 16.

Wow. Yeah, I went in the back [of the church] and tried to suffer through it until it was over. Then the preacher ... pretty much described my life in a series of stories he told about people he had worked with over the years and families he’d helped through different situations. And it was just pretty crazy that he said all these things that just described my life and the reason that I just hated life in general. And that I had a lot of hurt in me. And he stopped in the middle of the sermon and he was almost in tears. Really? And he stopped and said, “There’s a suicidal spirit in this room.” And like all the hairs stood up on my arms and I was like, I gotta get out of here; this is kind of weird. And by now he’s crying and he says, “Please come up and let us pray for you because God loves you and He has a plan for your life.” And I was like I gotta get out of here. So I didn’t go up to the front because, aside from the fact that I knew some of the kids that were there, [some] who I had picked fights with because they were Christians or picked arguments or whatever — there was no way I was going to stand up in front of all those people and say “That’s me,” you know? So when the service was dismissed I pretty much ran to the door to get out of there and a deacon stopped me and he

held my arm — as I was running he kind of grabbed my arm to stop — and I looked at him and I guess he had been crying too. The whole service was really emotional; I think a lot of people were [crying]. But he was like, “The Lord wants me to speak to you and He wants you to know that even though [you’ve never known your father] He can be a better father to you than any other father could ever be. And I was like, so what is the coincidence? Look at me, I’m in a Pantera shirt and my hair’s purple and of course he probably guessed that I didn’t have a dad or something, I don’t know, but I still didn’t believe. I was like this is just a coincidence. But then he just said, “God knows all the pain in your heart and Jesus died to take that away and will you let me pray for you?” And so it was kind of out of desperation. I was like, well, I had tried everything else, and I’m going to die tomorrow, I might as well let you do your prayer or whatever. So he started praying for me and literally it felt like God had just shown up and wrapped His arms around me. [And I was surprised] that God cared enough about me to say that He loved me anyway even though I’d hated Him or at least the idea of Him. And I hated Him in a lot of ways like by hating people. And that He loves me anyway. He showed me that I was unloving, but that He loved me anyway. And I remember feeling love for the first time in my life. And I remember going home and being real turned around. I was like, “Is there a God,” you know? And “What does that mean?” I was like, if there is a God then I have to think about all of this. And I remember waking up the next day and going, “OK, God, if you’re real, then why did you wake me up today because I wasn’t supposed to? And what do you want me to do ... and why is it that important to you?” And ever since then I’ve been trying to figure out what that is. n see more online @

like, “Something’s wrong with you.” She kind of knew something was wrong and she told me to go to church. And that was like the last place on earth I wanted to be because I hated Christians and I thought they were all naïve and hypocritical and fake and that everybody acted all happy all the time — I just hated them. So, she’s screaming at me to go to church and I didn’t want to go, but just to get her to shut up I went ahead and went.

Robin Before the Hood

Director Ridley Scott reveals the mythology of the beloved hero in his pre-outlaw days By Lori Hoffman

R

IDLEY SCOTT DOESN’T LIKE his heroes to be all nobility, no flaws. Therefore he has taken the myth of Robin Hood and stained it with the blood of helpless women and children, while in the employ of an even more flawed King Richard. This Robin (as played by Russell Crowe) even dabbles in the shell game — literally — and is willing to impersonate a dead knight in order to get back to a home that doesn’t mean that much to him except as a refuge from killing for the sake of killing in a senseless crusade. No, this is not the classic 1938 The Adventures of Robin Hood, but it is an excellent tale that harks back more to Scott’s Kingdom of Heaven than his Gladiator. Yes, there are no merry men per say, but there are men of humor. There are no men in tights and Sherwood Forest doesn’t show up until the finish. There is a Richard the Lionheart (Danny Huston), without the good press of earlier Robin Hood tales. Robin Hood HHHH Directed by Ridley Scott; rated PG-13

One character, however, does remain steadfast in the mythology; King John (Oscar Isaac) is as awful as we’ve come to expect. However, the Sheriff of Nottingham is a weak-willed minor player; his spot as the master manipulator is taken by the traitor Godfrey (Mark Strong). In this tale of his pre-Sherwood days, Robin Longstride must learn how to be a hero. His instinct for self-preservation is slowly transformed into the nobility to fight for a cause and a life he believes is worth dying for. We meet Robin Longstride as an archer for King Richard who is weary of war, especially a war that involved killing the innocent. When he dares to express his thoughts on the barbaric actions of the army to his king, he and his friends — Little John (Kevin Durand), Will Scarlet (Scott Grimes) and Allan A’Dayle (Alan Doyle) — are put in stocks. When the opportunity presents itself for escape, Robin and his mates take off and search for refuge. In the course of that quest they come upon the dying knight Robin of Loxley. In order to get home, Longstride and his friends steal the armor

and identities of the fallen men. Once home in England, they find a country in ruin and on the brink of civil war. The taxation angle of the Robin Hood tale always works, and in Scott’s version, the taxman is the vicious Godfrey, a confidant of King John and a French agent who is more than willing to slaughter his countrymen in his quest to fill the coffers of the king. Robin will organize the landowners to save their country from unreasonable taxation and the French army, but first he must take care of the personal business that takes him to Nottingham, to return the sword of Loxley to the knight’s father, Sir Walter Loxley (Max Von Sydow). There he finds a man who becomes his father figure and a women, Marion Loxley (Cate Blanchett), who captures his heart. Director Scott, working with a screenplay by Brian Helgeland (L.A. Confidential), presents the epic battle scenes he does so well, and as a master storyteller, he imbues this tale of Robin Hood with grime and grit. Which is not to say that it is without humor — Friar Tuck (Mark Addy) does show up, after all, and Robin’s not-quite-merry men

engage in life’s little pleasures with gusto and a wink when they aren’t on the battlefield. It was fun watching TV veterans Durand (Lost) and Grimes (E.R.) cavorting on the big screen. And, while we might want more of the romantic angle between Robin and Marion, Crowe and Blanchett do keep the spark glowing at a low ember. The actor who best embraces this medieval landscape is the superb Mark Strong, a regular in the gangster films of Matthew Vaughn and Guy Ritchie, who has lately become the go-to villain in American films (Sherlock Holmes, Kick-Ass and soon in The Green Lantern). In Robin Hood he creates a lovely blend of Basil Rathboneera evil with his own modern twist. Scott’s Robin Hood might not be the noble hero of the earlier films, but he is a hero that modern audiences should embrace. n To read more about movies and other topics covered by movie critic Lori Hoffman visit the ‘Atlantic City Central’ blog at http://blog.acweekly.com/
