PINKYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S CORNER

Bring Back Prohibition! By Pinky Kravitz

B

ELIEVE IT OR NOT, I WALKED ON A Boardwalk that took me back to my early childhood, except for the fact that there were no people walking in either direction. The storefronts on this boardwalk were of Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1920 and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;30s era. The stores were open and even had merchandise within them. One of them blew me away. The sign on the window said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Incubators.â&#x20AC;? Unfortunately, many of you reading this have no conception of an incubator store. It is a store that had incubators containing live, premature and newly born children, just days old. The sign in the window lured me into the store and I opened the door. Upon entering, I had a flashback of myself walking into that store when I was eight years old. There were incubators lined up in a U-shape with live babies in them. I saw myself staring at these newborn children and trying to get their attention. As I walked by each of the enclosed incubators and saw the children comfortably lying there, I marveled at how small they were. There were nurses on duty to provide the utmost medical care necessary to take care of them. As a child, I marveled at the idea that I was looking at children that had been born just a few days before and were obviously brought to the incubator store to receive expert attention. Those of us who walked around and watched the children lying there wondered why they were there. A simple reason was that at the end of your walk around the incubators there was a bucket with a sign asking for contributions for the upkeep of the children. Young as I was and having little money, I reached into my pocket and took out the five pennies for candy money that my mother had given me, and put it in the bucket. Just about everyone who walked through made a contribution. How could you not after seeing these children? Whose children were they? I never knew, and when the nurses were asked they declined to respond. How come I remembered seeing all this some 75 years later? I never forgot the experience of looking at the beautiful newborn children. Of course, there would not be an incubator baby store on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City today. However, it was on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, across from the Million Dollar Pier and near Arkansas Avenue, in the 1920s and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;30s. The Boardwalk I strolled on last Thursday in Brooklyn, N.Y., was not a mythical one. It was a 300-foot, true facsimile of the Atlantic City Boardwalk during that era. It was created as a part of the scenery one will see in September when HBO presents a 12-week series based on Nelson Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book Boardwalk Empire. From all reports that I have heard, it is destined to be the big hit of the 2010 television season. The series is based on a portion of the life of Enoch â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nuckyâ&#x20AC;? Johnson, who was the â&#x20AC;&#x153;benevolent dictatorâ&#x20AC;? of Atlantic City for 30 years. It begins in the era of Prohibition. However, there were speakeasies, otherwise known as clandestine bars, in just about every city in the country. Most fondly remembered are those with a closed door with a peephole. To gain access you would knock on the door and a bouncer could see who wished entrance to their Join us on Facebook:

facebook.com/ACWeekly

establishment. If he knew you the door opened, if not it stayed closed. It was a time that saw the beginning of the mafia. It is alleged that Nucky helped to bring the leaders of the varied mobs together to a meeting in Atlantic City to get them to work together rather than kill each other. By the way, if you are interested in the exciting history of Atlantic City and its three benevolent dictators who had control of every facet of the city â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and in many instances the state of New Jersey and in one instance the election of a president â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I suggest you read Boardwalk Empire. I not only walked along the Boardwalk, I also had the privilege of visiting Nucky Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s replicated suite on the eighth floor of the Ritz Hotel. The producers of the HBO series put together an exact replica of the magnificent splendor of what was known as Nuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playroom. Every facet one can imagine from that era was evidenced in those rooms. I had not been privileged to have the pleasure of seeing any of the filming, but the few folks I spoke to who have seen it feel that this will be a great replacement for The Sopranos â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the HBO series that ended in 2007. If it goes as well as anticipated, HBO will begin work on the second season in the fall. What does all this have to do with Atlantic City? In my opinion, it will bring thousands of people who want to see the Atlantic City of the Boardwalk Empire series. Unfortunately, when they come they will see the Atlantic City of 2010, not the A.C. of yore. The question that keeps running through my mind is: What can we do to make the visitors have an experience of that era while visiting modern-day Atlantic City? One thought is to have some of the bars in town go into a speakeasy mode. Have a door with a peephole and a bouncer who will open it when they are shown everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling card â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a dollar bill. Have the waiters in white shirts with the garters holding up their sleeves and wearing a straw hat. Have the waitresses wear the flapper costumes and serve their beverages in teacups, as they were at that time. Play the music of that era and teach everyone to dance the Charleston. Atlantic City must become the wild, exciting town that it was in the era of Nucky Johnson, minus the lawlessness that was prevalent then. I believe this is a gift to improve the business of Atlantic City. We should say â&#x20AC;&#x153;thank youâ&#x20AC;? to Nelson Johnson for writing this wonderful book on the history of Atlantic City; the people who had the foresight and talent to produce this series; HBO for its cast, directors and production crew; and the locals who aided in the production by providing information on what Atlantic City was like in the days of Boardwalk Empire. n

Kite-Flying Season

All types of people wait patiently for beach season to begin each Memorial Day. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the treasure hunters with their metal detectors, your sandcastle sculptors and the sun worshippers all waiting for their spot of sand. And then there are the kite flyers, taking advantage of the steady ocean breezes. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no better way to kick of the kite-flying season than with the 25th annual Wildwoods International Kite Festival. Organizers promise that if it can fly on the end of a string, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see it at the festival â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from inflatable flying creatures to traditional kites. The festival is tied to the Unlocking of the Ocean, noon Friday (May 28) a traditional opening of the weekend at the beach in front of the Wildwoods Convention Center. Festivities follow at 9pm with an illuminated night kite fly with spotlighted kites and music on the beach at Rio Grande Avenue. Sat. and Sun. (May 29-30) feature the East Coast Stunt Kite Championships on the beach, as well as kite exhibits, workshops and flying inside the Convention Center. Monday (May 31) is the World Indoor Kite Competition. There will also be competitions, workshops, games, auctions and much more. Visit SkyFestivals.com. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Pritchard

What better way to kick off the summer than to watch more hot dogs eaten in 10 minutes than might be consumed on the Boardwalk in a week? The Trump Plaza Beach Bar has graciously offered to host the gluttony for the second straight year, as this Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest qualifier â&#x20AC;&#x201D; slated for Saturday, May 29, at 2pm â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will send its winner to the 95th annual Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, N.Y., on July 4. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous is excited that Trump Plaza is one of the official stops on our nationwide campaign to find the greatest, most patriotic hot dog lovers in America,â&#x20AC;? says Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous president Wayne Norbitz in a media release. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to welcoming New Jerseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s representative to the table in Coney Island, and we expect our 2010 championship to be bigger and more memorable than ever before.â&#x20AC;? Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outcome will be a tough act to swallow, as three-time defending national champion Joey Chestnut of San Jose, California, consumed 68 dogs and buns in 10 minutes to set a new world record in Coney Island. The defending Trump Plaza Beach Bar champion (also deemed N.J. state champ) is Juliet Lee, who consumed over 30 Nathanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Famous Hot Dogs and buns in 10 minutes. She will face a dogged challenger this year in Bob Shoudt, who ate 38 hot dogs and buns to qualify for the July 4 contest last year in another state. Registration for this event is now closed due to the number of entries, but come out and show your support. The event is free and open to the public. [Editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s note: Atlantic City Weekly associate editor Ray Schweibert has offered his services as a contest judge.] â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ray Schweibert

Other Comedy at the Point shows are scheduled for Saturday nights this summer, including June 19, July 3, 17, 24 and 31, and Aug. 14 and 21. For more information, go to comedyatthepoint.com or tonymart.com. Tickets will also be available at the door or in advance at Sandi Pointe, 908 Shore Rd. in Somers Point. The Tony Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presents series will also include plenty of sensational musical shindigs, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no joke. The Tony Mart All-Star Jam is scheduled for Sunday, June 13, at Sandi Pointe. Hosted by the Danny Eyer Band, the jam will include Dr. Bobby Fingers, Bob Campanell, the Billy Walton Band, the Bubba Mac Blues Band, Ernie Trionfo, Jeff Schwachter and Arthur Migliazza. Tickets for this jamminâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dance party will include a light snack and dessert buffet. Sandi Pointe will also have full menu and bar service available. A $15 donation will benefit Access One, a local 501(c)3 medical care and social services organization and support group for the chronically ill.

OR ABOUT THE LAST THREE YEARS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; beginning with a 25th anniversary show celebrating the storied Somers Point landmark called Tony Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (1944-â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;82) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tony Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presentsâ&#x20AC;? series has been reviving the legacy of southern New Jersey rock â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll with a diversity of excellent musicians. That trend will continue, and this year Carmen Marotta of Tony Martâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presents will also co-produce with Bob Koob a comedy series at Sandi Pointe Coastal Bistro. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are anticipating a great comedy series this summer with several celebrity comics,â&#x20AC;? says Koob. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to bring some great comedic entertainment to a small venue such as Sandi Pointe, keep the price down, and give the locals and tourists an awesome night out.â&#x20AC;? Veteran comedian Kevin Brennan will host the Comedy at the Point series starting this Sunday, May 30. The doors will open at 8:45pm and the shows will start at 9:30pm, followed by a â&#x20AC;&#x153;DJ Request Hourâ&#x20AC;? after the laughter ends. Tickets will be $20-$25. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had an idea for doing comedy locally since I bought my house in Ocean City [2002],â&#x20AC;? says Brennan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a touring comedian, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard a lot of the comedy club owners complain that they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of business because everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on vacation. The fact is, a lot of people come to this area for their vacations. I talked to Koob [an O.C. police officer] about it and we agreed to do a show. Last year we did a show at Diorioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [Circle Cafe in Somers Point] on a Tuesday night and it worked out pretty well.â&#x20AC;? Coordinating the comedy nights around DiOrioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dinner crowd became an issue, but when word got out that the former Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Restaurant was being renovated, the comedy series was relocated right up Shore Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were told somebody was buying and renovating Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s [now Sandi Pointe], and since it has a big [banquet] room we kind of had that on the radar since last summer,â&#x20AC;? says Brennan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We met with Dan [Anderson, co-owner with his wife Sandi] and they had the perfect space. They already have the bar and the big restaurant, so we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be cutting into their dinner business. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect-sized room â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not too big, not too small, it has its own little bar in the back. I told Koob if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do well here, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meant to be.â&#x20AC;? The series kicks off Sunday, May 30, with lifelong southern New Jersey resident Dena Blizzard (a former Miss New Jersey), and JJ Ramirez of New York City. Blizzard recently debuted her one-woman show One Funny Mother: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Not Crazy earlier this month. The show took an introspective look into the daily life of the American mom, and was performed in conjunction with Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day at the Triad Theatre in New York City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had Dena last year, and after her act a lot of people told me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to bring her back,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? says Brennan. Affectionately called â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Latin Lunatic,â&#x20AC;? Ramirez is one of New York Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most sought-after headliners. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just try to deliver comics that I know a lot of peo-


WHITNEY’S RADAR

Thank a Veteran By Whitney Ullman

ITH MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND upon us, many of us are looking to finally kick off the summer season, relax and have some fun. Between all of the local events going on and the backyard BBQs, there are a lot of choices for the holiday weekend. But try not to lose sight of the real reason why we celebrate this weekend. Let us remember to celebrate the lives of all those who fought for our country’s freedom. Try and take a visit to one of the cemeteries of those who perished and place flowers on the graves. Remember to thank a veteran for the time he or she served. And make an effort to help out the survivors of the families who lost a loved one during war and are struggling to survive both mentally and financially. My grandfather is a veteran of World War II, having served as a sailor aboard the aircraft carrier the U.S.S. Bunker Hill (CV-17). After the war, he suffered tremendously from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and still suffers today, nearly 65 years later. One of his memories consists of running for his life after being bombed while stepping over dead crew mates. Yet, like other servicemen, after the war he had to come home, be a man, and try to live a normal life. He wasn’t diagnosed with PTSD until 1997, 51 years after he served. Many times our

soldiers don’t talk about their experiences for fear of bringing up strong emotions within themselves or burdening others with their own tragic memories. We all know a solider, a veteran, or someone who served in a war. It is important to thank them when you see them. We often see someone with a war hat while shopping or out on an errand; stop and say hello to them. Back in the

Let us remember to celebrate the lives of all those who fought for our country’s freedom this Memorial Day weekend. 1940s, men didn’t have a choice, they had to serve, they fought for our freedom whether they wanted to or not. These days we have many brave people who voluntarily sign up to fight for our country. These are honorable young men and women so make sure to let them know they are appreciated. Coming up on June 6, there will be a Veterans Benefit Day in Galloway at the Veterans National Park from noon4pm. This family event is brought to you by the Rolling Thunder Chapter 4-New

Sacchetti is a proud local military wife and wanted to show appreciation to our troops during the month of May (a.k.a. Military Appreciation Month). She decided to start an annual chocolate chip cookie collection where the cookies are not only sent to deployed troops, but are distributed to troops based in America as well. She got the idea from a Web site she saw that states that May 15 is National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. (Who knew?) She sent out invites and requested

the help of her friends, family members and other community members to bake chocolate chip cookies and bring them to her by May 15. With this first event — dubbed the Chip In 4 Our Troops Project — she received over 1,400 cookies. She is looking to turn this into a non-profit organization and will need your help for next year’s event. Check out chipin4ourtroops.com for more information. Finally, Barry Campbell is a great advocate for veterans. He formed the Veterans Quality of Life Access Network. Check out his Web site at vqlan.org. Enjoy your weekend everyone! Have fun, be safe, and, most importantly, thank a veteran! n

HEN BLUES MUSICIAN AND singer Kenny Wayne Shepherd developed a plan to preserve Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only true indigenous musical genre with a multi-media documentary, he knew his ambitious project was as much a race against time as it was a labor of love. In 2006, Shepherd created 10 Days Out: Blues from the Backroads, which took him to Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heartlands to meet and jam with some of the most legendary pioneers of the blues, along with talented but lesserknown artists who had flown under the public radar for most of their careers. Shepherd and his friends, drummer Chris Layton, bass guitarist Tommy Shannon and singer-guitarist Noah Hunt, spent 10 days visiting many of the performers in their homes, backyards and local juke joints, where they kicked around a lifetime of memories and jammed with the likes of B.B. King, Clarence â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gatemouthâ&#x20AC;? Brown and Pinetop Perkins. The resulting full-length feature film and companion album was nominated for two Grammys and was Billboardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top-selling blues album of the year in 2007. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Six of the people that we featured in that project have already passed away since we did it,â&#x20AC;? Shepherd, who performs at the Trump Taj Mahal this Saturday (May 27), says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So it definitely underscores the timing and the importance of appreciating these musicians and their music while theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still around.â&#x20AC;? Ironically, some of the oldest blues musicians in the business who were included in the project are still alive and touring today, including Perkins, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still playing piano at age 96, and Perkinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lifelong friend, guitarist and singer David â&#x20AC;&#x153;Honeyboyâ&#x20AC;? Edwards, 94. But some participants in 10 Days Out never lived to savor the success of the documentary, like â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gatemouthâ&#x20AC;? Brown, Neal â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Daddyâ&#x20AC;? Pattman, Henry â&#x20AC;&#x153;Muleâ&#x20AC;? Townsend and George â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Childâ&#x20AC;? Butler. Shepherd, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been performing professionally for more than half of his 32 years, feels 10 Days Out is as much of a historical piece as it is a musical project because it shows several generations of blues artists as well as the various influences they brought to the genre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blues is 100-percent American music, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something America can call its own,â&#x20AC;? he adds, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and it definitely deserves to be preserved and appreciated.â&#x20AC;?

Shepherd is currently putting the final touches on a live recording done in Chicago earlier this year that brought together many of the surviving artists from 10 Days Out for a special concert. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really remarkable performance,â&#x20AC;? Shepherd tells Atlantic City Weekly during a break from his studio mixing session in Sausalito, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have [former Howlinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wolf guitarist] Hubert Sumlin and [guitarist and singer] Bryan Lee and [guitarist] Buddy Flett and [drummer] Willie â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Big Eyesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Smith from Muddy Watersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; band.â&#x20AC;? A self-taught musician whom Guitar World magazine ranks third in the blues world behind B.B. King and Eric Clapton, Shepherd hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ruled out a follow-up to 10 Days Out, but that will have to wait until after he turns out his next studio album. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely something that could be more of a series of projects rather than just a stand-alone,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But right now, the focus is to get a new studio record out, because on a daily basis, I get e-mails from fans wanting new material.â&#x20AC;? Shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fans wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to wait too long for new material. He and his writing partners have already composed and recorded songs for his next record, which will be released later this year. Writing music is something that comes as easily and natural to Shepherd as playing the guitar, which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been doing since he picked up the instrument when he was just seven and began playing licks he heard on his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old Muddy Watersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; albums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Basically, if I sit down with a guitar for more than five minutes and start strumming, eventually ideas just start flowing,â&#x20AC;? he explains, adding that he and his writing partners composed 30 songs for the new album and recorded 20 of them. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the process now of deciding which songs will make it onto the finished product. And as for the ones left on the editing room floor? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll either use them on another record or hand them off to someone who I think would do a good job recording them,â&#x20AC;? he says. n

TLANTIC CITYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S POKER ROOMS have had a lot of buzz going on the past couple of weeks. Players are competing in a major World Series of Poker (WSOP) satellite tournament at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort, which included a couple of in-room appearances by poker pro Annie Duke in support of the WSOP May 21 and 22. The Borgata continues to come up with interesting tournament ideas, including a just completed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Double Playâ&#x20AC;? tournament, which came with two days to buy in. The casino has also just announced a schedule for three weeks of play in the Borgata Summer Open, June 11-30. And of course, regular tournament play around the city meets most players needs. But when it comes to buzz, nothing quite compares to a rising bad-beat jackpot. Throughout the weekend the Taj Mahalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad beat rose steadily and approached $500,000, the highest bad beat the Taj has had since bad-beat jackpots became standard in the city about two years ago. Love them or hate them, the Taj jackpot became the talk of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poker rooms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The phone is ringing every two minutes,â&#x20AC;? Tom Gitto, poker room manager for the Taj reported last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the bad beat at?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Has it hit?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Can you make sure it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit until we get there?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As if we have any control over it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been funny, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also brought a lot of excitement into the room.â&#x20AC;? The Taj Mahal, with 70 tables in its poker room, can handle a lot of play and normally offers a fair amount of Omaha, and even the classic stud games. But those games donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t carry a bad-beat jackpot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The bad beat is only on Texas Holdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em,â&#x20AC;? says Gitto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our stud and Omaha players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; regular players â&#x20AC;&#x201D; are all jumping to the Holdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em tables. At this rate, we may go all Holdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;em.â&#x20AC;? Ironically, Gitto, who managed the Taj Mahal room when stud was the most popular game in town, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a big fan of bad-beat jackpots. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really think it was the worst thing Join us on Facebook:

to ever happen to Atlantic City poker,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the money in these jackpots was taken out of the tables. It should already have been won by our players.â&#x20AC;? Still, the allure of a bad-beat jackpot, where every player at a table can get a share of the jackpot even if they are not part of the deciding hand, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lost on Gitto. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I remember when I first saw bad beat jackpots in La Vegas years ago, and I have to admit that winning part of it just for being there seemed amazing. So, yes, I understand the appeal.â&#x20AC;? Of course the buzz for the bad beat gets very loud when one roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jackpot starts to climb towards record levels (the actual record is $553,000 set at Caesars in January). But bad beats are actually hit pretty frequently. Caesars bad beat, for example, hit Saturday, May 22 for $229,607 when player Bryan Greeley saw quad sevens lose to quad nines. He collected $114,803. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;winnerâ&#x20AC;? of the hand made $57,401. The remaining eight players at the table got $7,100. Like we said, love them of hate them, bad beats get people pretty pumped up, and make a few people rich. In other news, the Borgata announced the schedule for its Summer Poker Open, (which actually starts 10 days before summer). The tournament runs from June 11 to June 30 and includes 22 events. The championship event will be held June 25-29 and has a $500,000 guaranteed prize pool. Buy-in is $2,000 + $200. Another big event is a $1,000 + $90 event June 19. Early registration is from June 1-9.. Also, the main event of the WSOP satellite meet at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s begins Thursday, May 27. The $1035 + $65 No Limit tournament awards one $10,000 seat at the WSOP Main Event for every 10 players in the tournament. A field of 100 means 10 seats will be given out.

ASK THE GEATOR

Looking for ‘Love’ and the Lamplighter By Jerry Blavat

O

NCE AGAIN, GREETINGS AND salutations. I know I’ve said it for the last 39 years: another Memorial Day weekend, and the reopening of Memories in Margate. And what a celebration. As usual, we’ll go nonstop Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. You can hear the action live on KOOL 98.3 starting Friday night at 8pm. And then, on Sunday night, the fabulous Trammps will kick in Memorial Day live at Memories in Margate. Doors open up at 9, and tickets can be purchased in advance all weekend long at Memories. See you there. Now, let’s ask the Geator.

compilation album of Love Me Tender and Jailhouse Rock that is widely available on CD. It not only has the original four songs, but several unreleased tracks from the movie. Dear Jerry, I followed you to all the dances back in the 1970s. One place I loved and had so much fun at was the Lamplighter at 13th & Shunk [in Philadelphia]. My sister and I would love to plan a Lamplighter reunion. Can you help us get in touch with the people that went there from 1973-74? Thank you. — Debbie

Unfortunately, the Lamplighter in South Philly is no longer in existence. I remember it well. It was a small, intimate neighborhood bar with a small dance floor in the back, which would be packed. The charm of it was that everybody knew everybody from the neighborhood, and that made it different from some of the bigger venues If you wanted to build a super group we worked at that time, such as the with great living soul singers from the Holiday Inn and the Sheraton. But you can see most of those folks on week’60s and ’70s, who would be in it? — Tom Silverman [Editor’s note: Tom ends at Memories in Margate. We’ll start off with a trivia question. I’ve got five names for you — Frank Castelluccio, Steveland Morris Hardaway, Walden Robert Cassotto, Alfred Cocozza and Vincent Eugene Craddock. Who are they? Hint: all male singers. Answer at end of column.

Silverman is the legendary founder of Tommy Boy Records.]

Answer to trivia question: Frank Castelluccio is Frankie Valli, Steveland Tom, there are so many great talents Morris Hardaway is Stevie Wonder, that come to my mind who would Walden Robert Cassotto was Bobby suit the bill, too numerous for me Darin, Alfredo Cocozza was Mario to mention. But among those who Lanza and Vincent Eugene Craddock still are around, immediately I think was Gene Vincent. n of Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Aaron Neville, Solomon Burke, and Jerry Butler. And if you included the ’50s I would add Fats Domino and Little Richard.

5 Questions With... Garry Peterson of the Guess Who By Michael Pritchard

G

ARRY PETERSON, THE ORIGINAL drummer for the Guess Who â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who scored monster hits in the U.S. such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Womanâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;These Eyesâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has seen the good, bad and the ugly of the music business. He and bassist Jim Kale, another founding member, form the backbone of the current Guess Who incarnation, which performs Saturday (May 29) at Resorts. In a phone interview with Atlantic City Weekly, Peterson discuses the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long history, its hits and speaks candidly about continuing the band without guitarist Randy Bachman (who left to form Bachman Turner Overdrive) and vocalist Burton Cummings, who sang the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s signature hits.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we form a band where we can play rock?â&#x20AC;? And for me, who had been playing with guys who are like 50, I thought it was really great. And we got together and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how it happened.

The band first formed in Winnipeg as the Expressions and had a major hit with a cover of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; All Overâ&#x20AC;? in 1965. But you guys would soon become the Guess Who. Well, that was the time of the British Invasion and American radio stations were only interested in playing that kind of stuff. Even American artists were suffering, let alone a band out of Winnipeg ... so Quality Records in Canada [which had leased the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album Shakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; All Over] had the idea, Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we send it out and just put Tell us about the start of The Guess Who. Guess Who? On the label. And the gim[I] think back to when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in like eighth mick worked. But on the next album, we grade and playing Little League with my intended to put the real name of the band friend Randy Bachman. And he knows on the record, but we never got the chance. me [as a drummer] â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I was a little Because the disc jockeys in America kept famous around Winnipeg â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and he says, saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;And now, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; All Overâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Join us on Facebook:

Can Summer Turn Atlantic City Around? Some early indicators suggest Atlantic City may finally get back on track this summer By Michael Pritchard

L

M A Y 2 7 , 2 0 1 0 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

A S T W E E K , A N O T H E R discouraging headline came out about the state of the casino industry in Atlantic City as profits at the city’s casinos were down 25 percent for the year’s first quarter. OK fine, the first quarter, mostly known as winter. The city had a bad winter with endless snow, horrible weather and many businesses still caught in the throes of the recession. But Atlantic City always has one ace in the hole. It’s called summer. And right now, the optimists are out in force saying they expect the city and the entire southern New Jersey shore area to have a great season. The main reason for hope is the city’s continued new philosophy of offering more than just casino gambling to visitors. Early indications of a good season include an increase in seasonal hiring, more bookings and shows at both the Atlantic City Convention Center and Boardwalk Hall, the success of events such as Atlantic City Restaurant Week in March and a slight uptick in room rentals in 2009 over 2008. “Atlantic City is showing strong signs of economic recovery in 2010, particularly in our non-gaming operations from hotel occupancy and restaurant bookings to meetings and convention business,” says Jeff Vasser, president of the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA). “Diversifying beyond gaming will continue to be a trend for us into the new decade.” Consider these signs that people are putting an Atlantic City vacation on their to-do list from the ACCVA. The Atlantic City Hilton Casino, considered to be one of the most endangered city casinos financially, has needed to fill positions at new restaurants, entertainment venues and to staff events at a 150percent increase in hires over 2009. The Hilton is also launching an innovative political speaker series this summer, which will bring the like of former president Bill Clinton and former vicepresident Dick Cheney to the resort. Harrah’s Entertainment will increase its 2010 summer positions and hires by 22 percent. Resorts Atlantic City

Right now, the optimists are out in force saying they expect Atlantic City and the entire southern New Jersey shore area to have a great season. and The Chelsea also report increases in seasonal hires in 2010 while the three properties that comprise Trump Entertainment Resorts are at pace based on 2009 numbers. Meanwhile, venues such as the Carisbroke Inn in Ventnor are reporting strong sales of vacation packages. One package in conjunction with Atlantic City’s Steel Pier has doubled last year’s bookings. The city convention industry also is showing positive growth despite the recession. Last year the Convention Center saw nearly 100 shows and conventions, while similarly sized center’s averaged closer to 70, according to the ACCVA. In 2009, delegate spending from conventions and trade shows at the Convention Center was estimated at $128.7 million. Boardwalk Hall also continues to perform, grossing just under $150 million in 2009 with an attendance of 1.8 million. The Hall was recently recognized

by Billboard magazine as the top grossing mid-size arena in the country for the last decade. Already on tap for this summer are a July 4 concert by Lady Gaga, the Black Eyed Peas in August and the Mike Jones/ Irving Garcia fight July 9. Also, the success of Restaurant Week this year shows that the city is becoming known for its dining options. Meals served during the event were up 50 percent. In fact, casinos are showing a strong ability to offer non-gaming attractions, considered a vital step as casinos continue to expand in Pennsylvania and Delaware. Some example for the summer include: • Harrah’s Entertainment will launch Sammy’s Beach Bar this Memorial Day weekend at Bally’s in conjunction with rocker Sammy Hagar. The city’s beach bars continue to thrive in the summer. • The Tropicana is launching a new seafood

restaurant, FIN, featuring locally grown (and caught) food and wine. The restaurant will have outdoor, oceanfront setting. • Harrah’s Resort is introducing the popular Viking Cooking School this summer. • The resort’s casinos will offer up an impressive array of shows and revues, including popular shows such as Hypnosterical2 at Trump Marina and Le Grand Cirque at The Quarter at the Trop. Headliners for the summer include: Conan O’Brien (May 30, The Borgata); Robby Kreiger and Ray Manzarek of The Doors (June 5, The Hilton); Jimmy Cliff (June 9, House of Blues); Yes and Peter Frampton (June 19, The Borgata); Ringo Starr (July 3, Caesars); Jerry Seinfeld (July 10, The Borgata); Simon & Garfunkel ( July 31, Taj Mahal) and Willie Nelson (Aug. 6, Caesars) to name only a few. “We’re optimistic going into our summer season,” says Vasser. “The investment we’ve made across the destination over the past five years, specifically in our non-gaming assets, is serving us well in 2010. The city is excited to welcome the summer crowds with a full calendar of summer events and concerts and some new city-wide initiatives that we’ll be announcing in the coming weeks.” ■

The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Servers By Frank Gabriel

S

ERVICE, ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BOTH THE MOST neglected and the most crucial element in ensuring a customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleasant dining experience. There are certain qualities which are absolutely essential for front-of-the-house personnel. Those who possess them provide their employers an opportunity to become successful, since even extraordinary food can rarely overcome a negative initial impression created by negligent service. In no particular order, they are: 1. Common sense. Sounds simple, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Welcome guests with a warm smile, steady eye contact and a sense of appreciation upon arrival. Always remember, dining out is an option; each patron needs to be made to feel special. I know it would take more than all my fingers and toes to calculate the number of times Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to strenuously request cutlery, extra napkins, water refills or other necessities. Common sense, what a concept. 2. Attentiveness. Practiced servers know that once a customer has been greeted, seated and â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we would hope â&#x20AC;&#x201D; informed about any additions to the bill of fare, they need a few minutes to orient themselves, review the menu and begin the ordering process. This means donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hover, but moreover donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t neglect, a very fine line to walk indeed. Careful observation of body language coupled with a basic understanding of those non-verbal cues is the key. There have literally been times when I stared directly at my server across a crowded room, desperately trying to get them to return to our table. Sadly, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work.

3. Intuitiveness. This is the flip side of attentiveness. A relative of mine who for years ably operated a Vineland-area breakfast and lunch haven coined the term â&#x20AC;&#x153;waitress earsâ&#x20AC;? to describe this quality. It means operating in a highly-attuned sense of perception not unlike the state of mind demanded of professional athletes, police or emergency personnel. Hear that spoon hit the floor and be there to replace it quickly without being asked, notice coffee cups in need of refills or parents of unruly children who need their checks sooner rather than later. 4. Brevity, not brusqueness. Staffers inclined to share too much about their personal lives, family problems and opinions in general, are not our cup of tea. Case in point: recently, while tucking into a lovely seared scallop atop parsnip puree app in an upscale Cape May County restaurant, which shall remain nameless, we were

treated to overhearing a detailed dissertation on one employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visit to the vet with her incontinent canine. Yuk. Real professionalism demands that such ego-driven behavior be subordinated. When asked â&#x20AC;&#x201D; then and only then â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a good server should however be able to share menu suggestions or ingredient information. With public awareness of veganism, trans-fat issues, food allergies or medical conditions like Celiac disease at an all-time high, servers need to be able to edify more than ever before. Having said that, although thorough knowledge of your offerings is a prerequisite, it should never be force-fed upon the public, pardon the pun. 5. Follow through. Like an athletic contest lost in the waning moments, service can similarly become the final, bitter taste left in a customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth as they bid adieu to an establishment.

This often happens because too many servers either deliver a check inappropriately early, or conversely, fail to notice when a table is ready to exit. There should moreover be a sense of completing-the-circle. By this we mean a gracious gesture from staff, inquiring how the experience was and bidding them a safe goodnight. Remember: lasting impressions are just as, if not more important, than first ones. 6. Good handwriting. Relating more to back-of-the-house (read: kitchen) relations, clear, legible penmanship means a greatly reduced chance of errors and quicker delivery of food. Trust me when I tell you, there is little that a professional chef or cook likes less than having to stop what they are doing in an attempt to translate what a server has written on their ticket. When in doubt, take the time to rewrite, even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an art teacher moonlighting. 7. Kill â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em with kindness. Anyone who has ever worked in a service industry knows that there are some people who are simply impossible to please. Those persnickety patrons are the ultimate karmic challenge for any wait staff. Dealing with them means not just carefully adhering to all information previously detailed, but above and beyond that, welcoming their surly behavior with an ever-increasing level of goodwill. Get it? Kill â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;em with kindness translates to a supple, judo-like attitude. Absorb their angry energy with divine grace and deflect it back to them via a smiling, helpful persona. Because force met with equal force creates nothing but chaos, grasshopper. Better to be like the willow tree, bending with strong winds, yet never losing even a single branch. n

OCEAN CITY WEEKLYÂŽ

TIME FOR THE SUMMER PLUNGE

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a time-honored tradition in southern New Jersey shore towns to acknowledge the â&#x20AC;&#x153;openingâ&#x20AC;? of the beach each Memorial Day weekend. The traditions include â&#x20AC;&#x153;unlockingâ&#x20AC;? the ocean, sometimes with big keys, and ceremonial wreath throws. Then there is the Ocean City way, which usually involves a fair degree of silliness. In this case, Ocean City opens its beach at noon Friday, May 28, with its annual Businessmenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Plunge on the beach at the Music Pier. Members of the business community, dressed in formal attire and swinging briefcases, will smart step into the Atlantic to welcome the summer. Yes, they will just march right into the waves. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the seventh annual event,â&#x20AC;? says John Walton, director of the plunge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It will be the largest one ever with over 60 entries coming from the Boardwalk, Downtown, City Hall, Chamber of Commerce, South End businesses and the public, plus the

Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Only Wind Chimes Band Ensemble of America.â&#x20AC;? By the way, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wind chime band perform, well, you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lived. Especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s breezy. Oh, and right before the plunge, you guessed it, the city breaks out the big key. Memorial Day weekend also features three concerts in the city. On Sat., May 29, there will be a Nashville Flood Relief fund-raising concert at the Music Pier, Boardwalk and Moorlyn Terrace, starting at 3pm. The event is sponsored by WXGN 90.5 FM Radio and will include pop rock bands that have recorded in Nashville and throughout the country. Tickets are $12 in advance, $15 at the door. Visit itickets.com or call 800-965-9324. Also on Saturday at 3pm, The Bucks County Singers will perform in front of the Music Pier. The choral group of men and women will sing a popular mix of Broadway, standard pop, movie tunes and patriotic pieces. On Sunday, May 30, at 7pm, the Ocean City Tabernacle presents famed Welsh tenor, Huw Priday at its auditorium (5th and Wesley Ave.). Admission is free.

Wrapping up the weekend, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Memorial Day Service will be held Monday, May 31, at 11am at Veterans Memorial Park (5th and Wesley Ave.). â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Pritchard

HE SOUTHERN NEW JERSEY shore is a gorgeous place to be at any time of the year, but for decades Memorial Day weekend has been a time when the area starts to become flooded with visitors seeking some sun, fun and other early summer treats. In 2010, the Atlantic City area is gearing for a busy summer and there is plenty for locals and visitors alike to take in this year from Cape May to Wildwood and Ocean City up to Atlantic City. Aside from the great line-up of casino headliners on tap for this holiday weekend (see p. 40), there are several great events to choose from. The Atlantic City Weekly team has 15 ideas to keep on your radar this Memorial Day weekend — and in some cases throughout the summer — in the Atlantic City region. Look for more events online at acweekly.com.

1. Sammy’s Beach Bar — If you’re searching for a place with good music, good food, and a fun, beachy atmosphere, look no further. Come check out the new Sammy’s Beach Bar & Grill this Memorial Day weekend on Saturday, May 29, at the beach in front of Bally’s Atlantic City. Rock legend Sammy Hagar’s Cabo-inspired style can now be found at the New Jersey Shore. There will be daily drink specials and plenty of entertainment. Live music will be played on Thursday through Saturday and DJs will be spinning throughout the week. It will

also have themed nights such as ’80s night on Wednesdays, Latin night on Mondays and tribute bands on Thursdays. If you’re looking for more than just entertainment, the Tex-Mex menu will be providing delicious options such as Spicy Jersey Shore Fries, Sea Salt Spiced Peel & Eat Shrimp and Wabo Wings with Tequilainfused wing sauce. There will also be a full taco menu, appetizers, salads and Sammy’s Beach Bar specialties. Open seven days a week from 11:30am-2am with happy hour specials Sunday through Fridays, 5-7pm. 2. College Mansion Paradise Weekend — College Mansion, the “home of the hottest college girls,” presents the Paradise Weekend Bikini Pageant featuring Bruno Mars and the girls of College Mansion on Saturday, May 29, at the Atlantic City Hilton. Live DJs will be playing throughout the night while 52 hot college girls model their bikinis. Mars will be performing his No. 1 singles “Nothin’ On You,” “Billionaire” and other songs from his repertoire, which includes reggae, rock, hiphop and R&B. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased through Ticketmaster (ticketmaster. com). VIP bottle service will be available. 3. Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest — If you love hot dogs, or watching people gorge themselves on them, Trump Plaza’s Beach Bar is the place to be Saturday, May 29. The Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating N.J. regional qualifying contest starts at 2pm and is free and open to the public. “After the brutal winter we experienced, we’re expecting sunny skies and lots of hot dogs,” says Tony Sanza, Trump

Plaza director of food and beverage. Last year, Juliet Lee of Germantown, Md., won after eating more than 30 Nathan’s Famous hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes. This year she will be pushed by veterans Bob “Notorious B.O.B.” Shout, Micah “Wing Kong” Collins and Dave “U.S.” Male. The winner of the qualifier earns the right to compete in the Nathan’s Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, N.Y., on July 4, which is where it’s been held since 1916.

wear office attire. Participants will dress in business suits, carry brief cases and march into the ocean to the strains of “Pomp and Circumstance” to welcome the new season. This celebration of summer’s return begins at noon and is located on 12 Moorlyn Terrace St. Beach. For more information call 525-9300. Admission is free.

4. Boogie on the Boardwalk — Starting Saturday, May 29, Resorts’ retro nightclub Boogie Nights — the AC Weekly 2010 Reader’s Choice Nightlife Awards winner for best dance club, best DJ and best drink specials — brings the party outside each week with its “Boogie on the Boardwalk” entertainment. The Boogie Nights characters will host a variety of contests on a designated stage positioned on the Boardwalk in front of Resorts. Guests will be able to enjoy ’70s and ’80s music, play Twister with Roller Girl, hula-hoop with the Boogie Nights dancers, take on Mr. Boogie in a slinky race and more. All participants will receive prizes. After the “Boogie on the Boardwalk” debut Saturday (1-6pm), the event will take place every Friday through Labor Day weekend from 5-9pm. Admission is always free.

6. Vietnam Memorial Dedication Festival — Although Memorial Day Weekend is often thought of as the “unofficial” start to summer, it is also a time to remember those who have served our country. Wildwood is doing just that with its official dedication ceremony and unveiling of the new Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, an exact half-size granite replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. The unveiling will take place noon Saturday, May 29, at Fox Park, 4500 Atlantic Ave. in Wildwood. The ceremony kicks off at noon followed by a Celebration of Heroes Festival at Fox Park, located on Ocean Avenue across from the Wildwoods Convention Center, immediately following the ceremony. The festival will last until 10pm and feature free live entertainment by TRU, Kenny Jeremiah of the Soul Survivors, Sherry Lynn, 45-RPM, The Generation, The Nobodys and Second Vision along with food, craft vendors and more.

The restaurant will feature locally grown food from New Jersey farmers and fishermen, and wines from local vintners. It will be the only seafood restaurant in Atlantic City with outdoor, oceanfront seating. FIN’s chef, Demetrios Haronis, was born and bred on the New Jersey coast and is a graduate of the Academy of Culinary Arts in Mays Landing. He joined Tropicana in 1994 as a sous-chef, and his vision for FIN is to offer a high-end culinary experience using the freshest local products that are available each season. Items on the menu at FIN will change seasonally and range from contemporary to classic, and there will also be a sushi and raw bar. Diners will enjoy fresh fish flown in from around the world. “I’m so excited to be part of this unique restaurant,” says Demetrios. “I’ve worked in restaurants along the Jersey Shore my entire life, and I think we will offer guests something that’s not currently available in the area — a diverse range of the freshest local seafood complimented by local produce and wines, all at the ocean’s edge.” FIN will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 6-11pm. n see more online @

10. Memorial Day Weekend at Borgata — Playboy’s Playmate of the Year, Hope Dworaczyk, will appear at Borgata’s mur.mur nightclub on Saturday night starting 10pm with music provided by DJ Questlove. Dworaczyk, 25, is an American model who appeared on the April 2009 cover of Playboy magazine with Seth Rogen. Her centerfold pictorial later earned her the distinction of 2010 Playmate of the Year. Dworaczyk is also the host and co-producer for Inside Fashion on television in Canada for the E! channel, and she routinely travels internationally to fashion weeks around the world. When Dworaczyk received the offer to pose for Playboy, she was quoted as saying that she “didn’t think modeling in high-fashion, sheer see-through blouses on the runway was all that different from wearing nothing at all.” On Sunday night (10pm-4am) at Borgata’s MIXX nightclub, DJ Rev. Run and DJ Ruckus will perform a live DJ set after Conan O’Brien appears at the Event Center that night for two shows.

13. A.C. Outlets Tribute to the Military — Atlantic City Outlets – The Walk will present a “Tribute to the Military” throughout Memorial Day weekend featuring the work of world-renowned sand sculptor John Gowdy and the debut of Gowdy’s “Flying Colors” performance art. Gowdy, a former captain in the Atlantic City Fire Department, has won several national and international sand-sculpting titles. His concept for The Walk (at 1931 Atlantic Ave. in A.C.) is a 360-degree scene of the soldiers at Iwo Jima, holding the words “Liberty, Freedom and Remembrance” that will require the use of 10 tons of sand. Another main attraction for the holiday weekend will be two live performances of Gowdy’s “Flying Colors” — images on canvas that come to life with a musical soundtrack. On Monday, May 31, The Walk will participate in a moment of silence in participation with the White House Commission On Remembrance, and there will be Tribute To The Military groups and exhibits throughout the weekend including a huge sidewalk sale.

The Next Big Circus Comes to Town

‘Le Grand Cirque’ offers amazing athletes and amusing comedy in brisk show at Trop By Lori Hoffman

T

HE EUROPEAN CIRCUS MOVEMENT HA S found a popular home in Atlantic City showrooms over the past 15 years. The latest Cirque show in the town’s history, Le Grand Cirque, is now wowing crowds in the Tropicana Showroom, produced by David King’s Spirit Productions, the man behind The Spirit of the Dance and other shows that have played Atlantic City. And, in late June, Neil Goldberg returns to town with Cirque Dreams Jungle Fantasy at the Trump Taj Mahal. These two bookings, as well as V: The Ultimate Variety Show coming to Trump Plaza on June 29, present a nice counterbalance to the big name — and often expensive — headliner shows that dominate casino showrooms in the spring and summer seasons. Shows like Le Grand Cirque are family oriented and are reasonably priced. In a recent interview, the creative director of Le Grand Cirque, Simon Painter, explains its appeal. “I suppose that we are really all about the spectacle,” Painter says. “There’s a lot of group acrobatics, guys that climb up poles, nine people riding one bike. It’s just a really big production and a big cast production with about 40 people traveling with it, and they’re artists. The show is just full of lights and music, and we’ve made it as wide as possible — kids from two to 92 will enjoy the show.” The show is orchestrated by a comedic ringmaster, played by Darren Partridge, who begins the show by strolling in the audience looking for a volunteer to complete his first silent comedy bit, enticing a woman onto the stage for a romantic picnic. It is all done in mime with him stealing a kiss at the end of the bit and escorting his heartthrob back to her seat. Later in the show he will conduct the audience in a bout of organized clapping that doesn’t always go as planned, to the point that he feels the need to give an audience member a “time-out.” However, the comic highpoint is when Partridge climbs into a giant balloon and appears to be doing a striptease while enclosed in the purple sphere. The punch line to the gag had the audience in stitches. The comedy bits are a nice part of any Cirque production, but what fans come to see are human beings who appear to defy the limitations of the human form as they leap through hoops and tumble in breakneck fashion. One of the highlights of the evening was the troupe of tumblers known as “hoops divers” who fly and tumble through rings that are increasingly higher and higher off the ground. Their ability to leap into the air beyond their own height and do so without any assistance is mind-blowing entertainment. If you’re into women who can contort themselves into what appear to be neck-breaking positions, you’ll Join us on Facebook:

PHOTOS BY TOM BRIGLIA

enjoy the young ladies who balance candles on their hands, feet and heads. If you’ve ever tried to keep a hula-hoop spinning on your body, you know it is a lot harder than it looks. The Cirque hoopster keeps half a dozen spinning on various parts of her body and does a really cool Slinky-like finish. If you’ve seen the movie Ocean’s Eleven you’ve seen acrobats that climb up vertical poles and tumble between them using their legs to keep gravity from winning the battle. It is also simple, but pretty amazing, to see people balancing on a standard-size bicycle, each jumping on in turn until there are nine acrobats on the bike. The show also features strong men and a strap acrobat. Le Grand Cirque offers a show that should keep families amused and amazed. n see more online @

Not to be outdone, the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is offering its own love locales. Noel Stevenson, public relations manager, says for those more interested in rock n’ roll and tequila than velvet ropes and Grey Goose, Gypsy Bar fits the bill. Live music and cold drinks keep this place rocking. “If your taste is more cocktails and martinis, you want to catch the game or enjoy a cigar with the guys, then B Bar is a great spot for drinks,” says Stevenson. There is no cover charge for either bar. And of course, what would be Atlantic City without big-name DJs, celeb guests, concert after parties and bottle service? Mur.mur and MIXX offer both, with bottle service ranging from $310 to sky’s the limit, depending on your group (and wallet) size. On some nights, Borgata’s MIXX also offers cocktailing, which equals exclusive treatment minus bottle service cost. For $50, you’ll have VIP entrance and private table service. For those looking to rage South Beach style, without the cost of a plane ticket, Borgata’s new SUNBAR at The Water Club boats luxurious sunbeds and private cabanas. Set to open the last weekend in June, the spot is guaranteed to give you a chance to wear white linen, down multiple pina coladas, and be a vol-

unteer suntan lotion applicator. Work in the biz and don’t have time to kick back on the weekend? Stevenson also says Monday nights at mur.mur are packed with local casino/nightlife industry clientele who work weekends and are looking for a night out. She says the crowd typically has dinner at Izakaya Mondays (with $7 specials) and then rocks out at mur.mur. Last, but certainly not least, The Quarter at Tropicana, with its numerous hotspots will round out your options. For a surefire way to break the ice in a setting that makes acting like a fool completely acceptable, karaoke at Planet Rose can’t go wrong. RiRa Irish Pub has cover bands on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, while Providence and 32 degrees offer the traditional nightclub ambiance. n see more online @

on the Chelsea’s new summer menu at acweekly.com) When pick-up lines crash and burn and “do you come here often?” no longer manages to entice the opposite sex, new measures must be taken. Trump Entertainment Resorts offers one alternative to hackneyed advances. At the Casbah nightclub at Trump Taj Mahal, a large video screen helps prospective couples text each other, albeit completely public in front of the entire club. Steve Gietka, vice president of entertainment, says that intrepid partygoers can text into a number publicized on the screen, with a message to any attractive girl/guy they might be checking out. “The whole transaction takes place on the screen,” says Gietka, “with both parties texting through a third number.” And how, you ask, will any one person out of a huge crowd know you’re talking to them? Gietka advises getting their attention first, ie. including a description of what they’re wearing. A simple “how u doin? Drinks l8r?” will most likely not suffice. Also new at Casbah, which celebrates 10 years this summer, is the STAR BAR, an outside section of Casbah featuring cabanas, bottle service, reserved seating, and a separate DJ. For a more casual spot (think: more flip flops and less Louboutins), The Deck at Trump Marina offers live music alongside views of the Farley State Marina. The seasonal spot attracts a slightly older crowd than Casbah. The same crowd will also feel right back at home in The Disco, the nightclub formerly known as The Wave. Opening July 4 weekend, the

H, SUMMER LOVE. MOST OFTEN remembered as long walks along lapping waves and occasionally as having the shelf life of a melting ice cream cone. But we aren’t here to pass judgment. Whether your summer romance turns into a fling or something a bit more substantial, everyone deserves to fill their summer platters with heaping helpings of love. Sangria-fueled nights and stolen glances across dance floors await this summer — so what are you waiting for? Below is a selection of hotspots for your own summer lovin’ to potentially take flight in Atlantic City. Crammed boardwalks, screaming children and touristy T-shirts don’t exactly add up to amore. Your best bet is for a more intimate tête-à-tête and meeting for a glass of red wine, rather than a cotton candy spool. The Chelsea Hotel aims to provide plenty of opportunities for the above this season. Jane Mackie, vice president of marketing, says the Backroom at Teplitzky’s is perfect for alone time. A hideaway cocktail lounge inside the restaurant will be a surefire way to impress your date with your insider knowledge. Teplitzky’s also won’t bust your bank account. “It has very reasonable food prices with most items $8-15 for breakfast, lunch or dinner and the lowest drink prices in the area,” says Mackie. “During happy hour all imported beers are $3, domestic beers are $2 and there is $1 off all mixed drink prices, which start at $6.” Mackie also recommends escorting your date over to the Chelsea Prime Bar for some gorgeous ocean views. For those looking for some wilder mingling, the Chelsea’s C5 will do the job. With its live DJs and bass-thumping spectrum of music, you’ll have ample opportunity to impress the crowd with your moves. (Note: C5 offers 50-percent off wines by the bottle on Thursday nights. Meaning no recession excuses for having a good time). The Cabana Club and the Cabana Club Café are also options for partying outdoors with a young crowd. Insider tip: C5 has the highest ratio of guys to girls, while the Cabana Club and Cabana Club Café has the most favorable ratio of girls to guys. Mackie says guys should take note that girls love to hang out by the pool day and night. (See video

While most 15 year-olds were spending their time trying to get to first base, DJ DL (aka Dalton Loughlin) was busy turning heads and making magic out of turntables on his way to becoming a fixture in the N.Y.C. nightclub scene. Ten years after sneaking into clubs with a fake ID to watch the heavy hitters spin, DL’s played A-list venues both in the U.S. and internationally. He cites everything from Sting to Nas as early inspirations, and thinks A.C. can rage just as hard as N.Y.C. “I love the scene out here [in Atlantic City],” says DL. “I like the diversity. I like the fact that it is close enough to the city to get the New York crowd and a mix of others from out of town. You know the crowd is there to have a good time and not be pretentious. They just want to party.” He plays two to three Saturdays a month at MIXX and at mur.mur, both located at the Borgata. DL said he also has tentative dates booked this summer at C5 at The Chelsea Hotel. Check out djdlmusic.com for more info and downloads of his insanely addictive tracks. DJ DL provided AC Weekly with a list of his Top 10 favorite songs for summer 2010 (in no particular order):

The Expendables

Summer Sizzlers E’VE ALREADY SEEN THE expected success of the spring blockbusters Iron Man 2 and Shrek Forever After with Sex and the City 2 and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time rolling out this weekend. Now it is time to look at some of the most intriguing films scheduled for the summer season. Here are the 10 films that have me shivering with anticipation, in the order of their scheduled release.

With Chris O’Donnell. June 30

Roberts stars in the beloved memoir about a woman who travels the world seeking peace after a wrenching divorce. As the title suggests, she finds fabulous food, spiritual sustenance and love — in the form of Javier Bardem. With Billy Crudup, James Franco and Richard Jenkins. Directed by Ryan Murphy (Glee). Aug. 13

The Last Airbender

The Expendables

Knight And Day

The Kids Are All Right

Tom Cruise is a super spy once again in this action comedy about saving the world and the girl (Cameron Diaz) who gets caught in the middle of a sticky situation. With Peter Sarsgaard; directed by James Mangold (Walk the Line). June 25

This film festival hit, about a lesbian couple (Julianne Moore, Annette Bening) whose teenage kids find their sperm doner father (Mark Ruffalo), is considered strong enough to be counter-programming for all the tentpole movies, hence the July release date. Written and directed by Lisa Cholodenko (Laurel Canyon). July 7

Ten movies that should hold your interest in the next few months By Lori Hoffman

W

Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore 3D I thought the original Cats & Dogs (2001), in which we found out felines and canines played hi-tech spy games on each other, was a blast. I’m expecting more of the same in this sequel. A common enemy, a hairless cat (voiced by Bette Midler) wants to kill all dogs and humans too.

M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) has lost his mojo the last few years, but he’ll try to regain it with this Asian action film about a 12-year-old hero (Noah Ringer) who must defeat the fire lord and reunite the tribes of water, earth, fire and air. With Nicola Peltz and Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire). July 2

Predators A total guilty pleasure. I’ve enjoyed the various Predator movies, even Aliens vs. Predators. This time the human prey has been shipped to the alien planet, so the ugly MFs have the home field advantage against the likes of Laurence Fishburne,

Actor and director Sylvester Stallone salutes Topher Grace, Alice Braga and Adrien his action-hero days from the 1980s with Brody. July 7 this throwback that features Bruce Willis and a cameo appearance by the goverInception nor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger. Director Christopher Nolan (Memento, Willis hires Sly and his elite soldiers of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) gives us fortune (Jason Statham, Jet Li, Mickey Inception this summer, a drama about Rourke, Steve Austin, Randy Couture and a group of people who inject them- ex-NFLer Terry Crews) to overthrow a selves into people’s dreams to steal their Latin American dictator. Aug. 13 brilliant ideas. The dream cast includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Joseph Going the Distance Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Marion Drew Barrymore and Justin Long star Cotillard and Cillian Murphy. July 16 in this romantic comedy that wants to tweak the standard formula and be more Salt realistic, hence the R-rating. Nanette Angelina Jolie is back in action in this spy Burstein, a documentary filmmaker thriller (originally a male role) as the title (American Teen), is making her fictional character, a CIA agent accused of being a film debut. Aug. 27 n Russian spy. Directed by the superb Aussie Phillip Noyce (Rabbit-Proof Fence, The To read more about movies and other Quiet American), the film co-stars Chiwetel topics covered by movie critic Lori Hoffman Ejiofor and Liev Schreiber. July 23 visit the ‘Atlantic City Central’ blog at http://blog.acweekly.com/ Eat, Pray, Love Here’s more counter-programming. Julia
