The Inside Scoop I

CE CREAM. I’VE NEVER SEEN anybody with a frown on their face while eating ice cream. And down here at the Jersey shore there is plenty of ice cream to go around. Whether it’s Kohr Bros. on the Ocean City Boardwalk, the Custard Hut in Somers Point or at the dozens of ice cream stands and shops in the region’s beach towns. (Not to mention the trucks!) Some local ice cream parlors and restaurants, in the casinos and elsewhere in the region, take the ice cream experience to the next level. They make their own ice cream in house, using their own distinctive processes and ingredients. And as Michael Pritchard writes in this week’s cover story (p. 59), “there’s still something unique and special about the homemade ice cream.” There’s also something unique about veteran music act Hall & Oates. The top-selling duo of all time has a boatload of hits, several memorable music videos from the golden age of MTV, a lot of respect on the R&B charts and a new four-disc retrospective box set that’s due to hit shelves in September. Hall & Oates play the Borgata on Friday night (see p. 58 for AC Weekly contributor Tom Wilk’s interview with John Oates). After about a month as sous chef in the newly opened Borgata restaurant Fornelletto, Danny Veltri finally got a couple days off this past weekend. What did the young winner of last season’s Fox TV show Hell’s Kitchen do during his break? He went back home to Sarasota,

Fla., because a friend needed his help with a fundraiser. Although the charity gig required Veltri to don his apron, it was still relaxing for the 25 year old, who’s been busy as rushhour traffic since landing his Borgata job under restaurateur Stephen Kalt. “It was nice to take a little break,” Veltri told us during a sensational dinner earlier this week. “It’s been quite a challenge [at Fornelletto], but it’s going great.” Veltri is referring to the great response to the opening of Borgata’s latest culinary offering. AC Weekly columnist David Spatz speaks with Veltri on p. 62; look for food columnist Frank Gabriel (who gives the lowdown on this weekend’s tantalizing Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival, presented by Harrah’s Entertainment, on p. 44) to dig into the kitchen and food side of the Fornelletto operation in an upcoming issue and online at the new That’s right, the new Web site is live. And although we’re still working on some of the bugs and ironing out a few kinks, the site gives you many more ways to interact with us, search for specific items — old stories, dining options, multimedia, etc. — and take advantage of the multitude of information, award-winning writing, photography and all the other goodies on our Internet home.

Crosstown Traffic A By Pinky Kravitz

TLANTIC CITY DOES NOT HAVE A TRAFFIC engineer and has not had one for over 10 years. Unfortunately, the lack of a professional has caused daily traffic jams that could be avoided with proper planning. I am not a traffic engineer and know very little about how to devise a plan that would expedite the movement of traffic and have the traffic signals synchronized. However, one does not need to be an expert to see how certain areas of the city can be addressed with simple changes. I have spoken about this with city officials, but have not seen any response, and therefore I am presenting my suggestions publicly in hopes that those of you who reside within the city or travel in the city will call the mayor’s office (347-5400) and City Council offices to get them to consider improving the traffic flow in Atlantic City.

Call the mayor’s office and City Council offices to get them to consider improving the traffic flow in Atlantic City.

I will start with Albany and Winchester avenues for the traffic flowing from Hartford to Albany avenues. There ought to be two lanes, with the right lane having all traffic turn right onto the bridge and the left lane given the choice of turning right for a second lane over the bridge, going straight to Trenton Avenue or making a left on Albany Avenue towards Ventnor Avenue. This will ease the traffic flow on Hartford Avenue coming from Fairmount Avenue. It is a simple matter of painting the lines properly to expedite the flow of traffic in that site. The next area to be discussed is the Albany Avenue Bridge coming from the mainland into Atlantic City. At the present time, there are two lanes for a left turn onto Winchester Avenue. Both lanes start about midway over the bridge and when they fill out they jut out into the left lane going straight towards the monument. One is not allowed to stop on the yellow line on the top of the bridge. Doing so may cause you to receive a ticket. What ought to be done is to eliminate the yellow lines on the bridge, thereby allowing two straight rows of traffic in the center of the bridge for left turns onto Winchester Avenue. This would prevent the backup on the left lane of the two going straight. This is a simple solution and like the other requires just one instance of changing the painted line and eliminating the painted yellow area. The second area to be addressed is flowing traffic into the tunnel on Mississippi Avenue. Mississippi Avenue, between Fairmount and Arctic avenues, provides for one lane going toward the tunnel, or a left turn on Fairmount Avenue. If someone wants to make a left turn onto Fairmount Avenue, they hold up all the traffic behind them going toward the tunnel. This causes a backup all the way to Arctic Avenue and for traffic coming down Arctic Avenue toward Mississippi Avenue. The

simple solution to alleviate the problems is to eliminate the parking in front of the buildings between Arctic and Fairmount avenues. There will be a parking garage constructed across the street. The residents of that block ought to be given a card for free parking in that garage. Eliminating the parking would then allow for two lanes in each direction thereby allowing for more cars to stack up on Mississippi Avenue going into the tunnel or they can make a left turn onto Fairmount Avenue from the left lane. The Casino Reinvestment Development Authority is going to spend a considerable amount of money to widen Mississippi Avenue between Atlantic and Arctic avenues. Eliminating the traffic on both sides of the street would serve the same purpose and provide for four lanes from Arctic to Atlantic avenues and provide for two lanes of traffic in each direction. For those who worry about parking, there is a 1,400-space parking garage being built half a block away. Residents of that area should also be given special free passes to park within that garage. One further suggestion to expedite traffic on Mississippi Avenue is to cut the time for the traffic light at Mississippi and Fairmount avenues. There is much more traffic using Mississippi than Fairmount and it makes sense to give the longer period of time to the most number of cars using that intersection. The next area to be addressed is the two lanes of traffic going toward Arkansas Avenue on Atlantic Avenue between Michigan and Ohio avenues. There are wide yellow lines in the middle of the street keeping the traffic in the two lanes. However, the right lane has buses stopping to pick up passengers and thus causing the right lane of automobile traffic to be either stuck behind them or trying to wiggle their way into the left lane â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that is full of traffic â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to go around the bus. The simple solution would be to eliminate the yellow line and allow for an additional left lane in that block. It has been there for several years and it serves no known purpose and just takes up space that could be used to ease the traffic jam that goes back several blocks. As stated above, I am not a traffic engineer, but I do have common sense and the areas that are addressed here can be resolved simply with some paint and a couple of signs. I would hope, if you agree, that you would call the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office and the offices of City Council and urge that these suggestions be given serious consideration. If you have some of your own, please let the city officials know as no one seems to be doing anything, at this time, to alleviate Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traffic jams. n

When W.W. Cole first created what would become the oldest Big-Top circus in the nation, his most mesmerizing attraction was a single, glowing glass globe powered by a steam engine that produced light. That was in 1884, and while the 125th anniversary of Cole Brothers Circus of the Stars — which visits the Atlantic City Race Course in Mays Landing next Wednesday through Friday, Aug. 5-7 — is quite a bit more high-tech today, much of its original charm and recipes for success remain the same. “We work for our patrons, the people who come to see Cole Brothers Circus,” says John Pugh, who co-owns the circus with his wife, Brigitte. “Our customers tell us what they enjoy and want to see, and we craft our performances accordingly.” The latest edition of the circus promises its perpetual, ever-popular attractions and some exciting new offerings in “a fast-paced, two-hour show.” It includes the Columbia Toprasta Troupe’s renowned three-tier, sevenman pyramid on the high wire, the “Globe of Death,” the “Dog and Pony Review,” an aerial ballet, a human cannonball, clowns, camels, elephants, jugglers, acrobats and a lot more.

Putting the Gloves Back on

Boxing was once a staple for Atlantic City casinos in the 1980s and into the ’90s, with several properties offering regular fight cards. But with the exception of some occasional major fights at Boardwalk Hall and regular mixed martial arts competitions at Tropicana and Showboat, boxing in A.C. ain’t what it used to be. That’s why boxing fans should take heart as Resorts takes a plunge back into the fight game this Friday (July 31) with an eightfight card and a main event featuring a championship showdown between Camden’s own Prince Badi Ajamu and Dallas Vargas. It’s the first boxing at Resorts since 2005, when Resorts offered a fight card on the beach. Resorts officials say they’re glad to get boxing back into the mix. “Hosting a championship boxing event on property is a great way for us to introduce a new audience to the Resorts experience,” says spokesman Brian Cahill. “This event is the latest attraction in our entertainment lineup that has something for everyone.” The fights will take place in the intimate Superstar Theater where Cahill notes “fans will be right on top of the action.” Along with the NBA-sanctioned light-heavyweight championship bout between Badi Ajamu and Vargas, the undercard features a host of Atlantic City area natives and several skilled young fighters. Who knows, if all goes well, regular fights in the city could make a comeback. For tickets ($40 to $90) visit or in person at Resorts box office. — Mike Pritchard


The Roots began their residency at Borgata last Friday at the Music Box.

Q: How was the show? Amy Valentine Havertown, Pa. A: I came because the Roots jam the jammy jams!

Christine Kelly Bryn Mawr, Pa. A: They were awesome. They bring the best musicians together!

Ashley Dixon Havertown, Pa. A: I liked it because they had a unique sound that everyone could enjoy and get down to.


Jammin’ for Jerry

because it was such a huge operation, and the crowds were so far away from the band. Getting to play these festivals and small towns is more of a get-to-look-in-your-face-andsee-your-smile situation, and I really enjoy that.” Godchaux encouraged music and creativity in her sons while “doing baseball and the things kids like to do” in their formative years. When her own band had to cancel a recent music festival in Ohio due to an illness, she went up anyway and wound up jamming with both of her sons’ bands and some others. “I’ve really put my focus not only on my family, but on my music too, and I’ve never regretted it,” she says. “We have a great family relationship. We’re all in bands and we all help each other out. There’s a detached studio in back of our house [near the Muscle Shoals town where she was raised], and once in a while I’ll hear ‘Mom! Can you come out here and sing on this track?’ We have a beautiful relational rapport as well as musical rapport, so I’m just having the time of my life.” She also has nothing but fond memories of her years with the Grateful Dead, which, like any traveling rock ‘n’ roll conglomerate, was rife with ups and downs. “When I look back I am just amazed I got to sing with that band,” says Godchaux. “Every memory I have — whatever was not positive is gone. The wonderful experiences and the lifelong friendships — I’m still good friends with all those guys and always will be.” At the Rock ‘n’ Roots Festival on Saturday, Donna Jean and company will perform original material as well as covers, many of them Grateful Dead numbers including one she penned called “Sunrise.” “We’ll be giving the audience a lot to listen to,” she says. “The cool thing for me is that instead of singing harmony [as she always did with the Dead], I’m singing the lead on so many of the songs that have been my favorites for years and years. I’m honored to be able to do that.” n

ANY CURRENT CONCERT-GOERS weren’t even born yet and many others may not be aware, but some of the best bands in the nation used to appear at Tony Mart’s in Somers Point before the venerable music venue closed its doors in 1982. If late owner Anthony Marotta didn’t leave behind some sort of killer contact list for his son Carmen, he certainly instilled a love for music and a knack for producing premier acts that anyone can afford. This Saturday night, Aug. 1, the Tony Mart’s Rock ‘n’ Roots Festival will take place at McCullough’s Emerald Golf Links in Egg Harbor Township, and will be headlined by the Donna Jean Godchaux Band with Jeff Mattson. Godchaux and her late husband Keith were members of the Grateful Dead from 1972-’79, and the festival will celebrate what would have been the 67th birthday of Dead co-founder and lead guitarist Jerry Garcia, who passed away in 1995. The festival also coincides with the 40th anniversary of Woodstock and features a local flair, as Jeff Schwachter & The Ryders (fronted by guitarist/vocalist and AC Weekly editor Jeff Schwachter) will perform a tribute to Bob Dylan (the songs of his that the Dead played) and The Band as one of the opening acts. The Ryders also include guitarist Ray Polonsky, drummer Mike Hoebler, accordionist Malcolm Tent and bassist 1Adam12. Other festival acts include the classic rock cover band Cerberus, and Franny Smith’s New Orleans Sounds. A former sessions singer who grew up during a musical evolution in Muscle Shoals, Ala., Godchaux ventured to the West Coast in 1970 and became the only female member of the Grateful Dead in its storied history (1965’95). She and Keith formed the Heart of Gold band shortly after they departed the Grateful Dead, and in 2005, at the Gathering of the Vibes Festival honoring the 10th anniversary of Garcia’s passing, she hooked up with the Dead-inspired jam band Zen Tricksters. They collaborated to create the seven-piece Donna Jean and the Tricksters band, and released a CD of the same name before coming up with their current five-member incarnation including Mattson on guitar, bassist David MacKay (whom Donna Jean married after Keith’s death in a car accident at age 32), drummer Joe Chirco and keyboardist Mark Adler. While Godchaux never really left the music scene entirely, she channeled a lot of time and energy into raising her two sons Zion (now 35) and Kinsman (26). Keith Godchaux is Zion’s father and MacKay is Kinsman’s, and both brothers are musicians in their own right. During a phone conversation from the 2009 Gathering of the Vibes Festival in Bridgeport, Conn., Donna Godchaux tells AC Weekly she loves her new roles as bandleader and rock-star mom. “Anything you do after playing with the Grateful Dead is going to be much different,” she says with a laugh. “What I’m doing now is different on just about every level you can imagine. As wonderful as [jamming with the Dead] was — and I’m not poo-pooing it at all — there was a personal touch that was sort of lacking with the audience

Death Defying Kathryn Bigelow’s brilliant ‘Hurt Locker’ By Lori Hoffman


HILE WATCHING THE HURT Locker, director Kathryn Bigelow’s breathtaking, in-your-face look at a bomb disposal unit in Iraq, I recalled fragments of Jack Nicholson’s speech from A Few Good Men. You know the ones, about wanting these men on the line, needing these men on the line. Maybe American audiences have rejected all these Iraq war-themed movies because we can’t handle the truth. We get to feel safe in our homes because of these men. We don’t think enough about how much we are asking of them. Part of their sacrifice can be an addiction to the rush of war. For these men, the thought of returning home to a mundane life is a nightmare compared to the excitement that comes when facing death and beating it day after day. The Hurt Locker ★★★★ Directed by Kathryn Bigelow; rated R

At least that seems to be the case with staff sergeant William James (Jeremy Renner). He is the bomb tech, a man who can do his job effectively because his Bravo Company cohorts — the steady, serious sergeant JT Sanborn (Anthony Mackie) and the anxious, scared Owen Eldridge (Brian Geraghty) — have his back. From the moment he joins this unit, it is clear that James is brilliant at his job, but is so addicted to danger, he doesn’t care that his more reckless decisions are putting his team in peril. He has to hone in so intently on his battle with death, he can’t be worried about possible collateral damage. He must assume that he will win every time. Don’t make the assumption, however, that this is a movie about a man who has lost his humanity to his obsession. That is perhaps the most intriguing part about Mark Boal’s screenplay, an investigative journalist who spent some time with an elite bomb disposal unit and thereby designed his gripping fiction based on

first-hand knowledge. James’ complexity is the film’s anchor. He has emotions that must be kept in check, rather than a man whose emotions have been worn away by his war experiences. Bigelow, who has earned the right to be called a character-driven macho director without reference to gender, has made her first masterpiece. Working with, and enhancing the reality that Boal creates with his storytelling and dialogue, she once again shows her mettle as an intelligent action director. We are talking about action designed around the palpable ambience of sudden death, not

crashing cars and bloody battles. Her skills are particularly focused in the excruciating sequence that finds the disposal unit caught under fire from a sniper in the desert in daytime. Bigelow creates a war scene for the ages in the simple moment when the quest for a beverage is the turning point in a battle of wills. I’m going to mention the brilliance of Anthony Mackie first, because the whitehot calm generated by Renner is the obvious cornerstone of the film. However, Renner can’t be nearly as effective without the counterpoint of Mackie’s solid, hardworking man who wants to stay alive and have a life beyond his service. Geraghty is also excellent as the solider who struggles mightily to keep his emotions in check. The Hurt Locker is a movie that finds the truth in war without all the political static that too often in the past has kept the voice of the soldier from being heard. ■

Who’s ‘At the Top?’ G By Jerry Blavat

REETINGS AND SALUTATIONS. ‘Tis the Boss with the midsummer hot sauce. Yep, people still partying down at the Jersey shore, and big news is that we’re going to be doing our live broadcast on Fridays from 57pm at Chickie’s & Pete’s in Egg Harbor Township for the month of August. In fact, we’ll do it up till Labor Day and then switch back to Chickie’s & Pete’s on the great Boulevard in northeast Philly. But that’s not all for Chickie’s & Pete’s: we’ll have our summer block party Tuesday, Aug. 11, at their location in South Philly. And of course, back at the Jersey shore, every Thursday you can join us at the Lighthouse Pointe in Wildwood, on Sundays for our afternoon jam sessions at La Costa in Sea Isle, and don’t forget Fridays and Saturdays when we go live from Memories in Margate on Kool 98.3. Now, let’s ask the Geator.

sponsored by the United Negro College Fund in 1990 commemorating Sammy’s 60 years in show business, right before Sammy died. Tiny Tim

What was the exact address of Wagner’s? Was it near Fern Rock? Thanks – John Hanna

As far as I know Tim had no relatives in the music business.

Not exactly: it was two blocks above Broad and Olney, on Old York Road. “Sea of Love” was written by Phil Phillips and George Khoury. Any relation to Tiny Tim, whose real name was Herman Khoury? – Bobby DiNardo

Even though the names sound the same, they are spelled differently — Tiny Tim’s real name was Herbert Khaury, so no relation. As far as I know Tim, who I had on my TV show, had no relatives in the music business. He developed his Another great record. The Formations knowledge of the old songs as a small were a talented backup harmony group child from listening to old records that that played on many local sessions. his dad would bring home. n Unfortunately “At the Top of the Stairs” was their only hit. It’s on my CD The Untouchables, and if I’m correct, Leon J ERRY B LAVAT Huff co-wrote it. Got a question for Jerry? Send it to AskTheGeator@ We just watched Gran Torino. What or Geator a great movie. Have you ever met Clint Eastwood in your travels? – Ed & Linda Gold Radio, 626 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA Yes, when I had my afternoon TV 19106. For more info on show on (WFIL) MGM flew me out to Las Jerry’s appearances, go Vegas for the premiere of Where Eagles to — and Dare, and I interviewed Clint. I rememkeep on rocking, ’cause ber him as quiet, somewhat reserved, you only rock once! almost shy. I also was with him at the Shrine Auditorium in L.A. for the concert I am trying to locate a CD that has the song “At the Top of the Stairs There’s Darkness.” I think it was recorded by the Formations in the 1960s. – KFH

Will the Grass Be Greener? I By Whitney Ullman

T’S SO FUNNY HOW WE ALWAYS think that the grass is greener on the other side, and most times we find out the ugly truth — that it’s not. It’s only normal to want what you can’t have and think, “What would happen if I switched jobs, dated someone else or lived somewhere else?” The truth is that at most work places you will experience the same dramas, routines and co-worker personalities, so make sure that if you are thinking of switching positions that it’s for a valid reason. Some reasons to switch could include: the new job allows you more free time, you will make more money, or maybe just because you need a change of pace. Whatever your reason, make sure to ask yourself, “Will the grass be greener?” As far as dating goes, it’s easy to find the faults in a person and some of us even go through writing a pros and cons list of our mate. But try thinking to yourself, “Is this fault important?” For instance, don’t decide to ditch your current someone and start dating somebody else just because your current suitor doesn’t share the same interest in music as you, or have fashion sense, etc. Rather, think to yourself: “Could I see myself with this person for the rest of my life?

Will they make a good father/mother? Do they have good morals and values?” If you think rationally about these things then your decision should be easy. I have heard many excuses from people as to why they don’t feel compatible with someone and it truly boggles my mind. I guess I shouldn’t talk; when I was dating my hubby, so many things bothered me about him, from the way he chewed his food to him slapping my hand every time I would use hand gestures while talking. It was like an automated response to slap me five every time my hand was extended and it was so annoying. (Even thinking about it now still annoys me!) But there were many other more important traits that outweighed the small annoying ones. And I don’t notice the food chewing anymore. In any of these circumstances it’s easy to say that the grass will be greener on the other side, but before you make yourself crazy take a look at the situation, think rationally and do your due diligence before making a decision.

see Hypno-sterical at the Trump Marina recently. The show is promoted as a high energy, R-rated, outrageously adult-oriented and extremely funny comedy hypnosis show. Even though I was very intrigued to go see it, I was still a little bit skeptical about the whole hypnosis thing. We get into the showroom and my

seats were directly in front of the stage. Now I’m thinking a couple of things: “This is going to be a great show” and “Uh oh, am I going to be chosen to be on stage?” Then our table starts to fill up with a group of people from the area — who had been drinking — so I knew at the very least, the evening wouldn’t be a boring one. I am so glad that I sat at this table; two of the people we were sitting with volunteered to go up on stage and be hypnotized. Joe Boccuti, the master hypnotist, did Whitney’s Radar his thing and it worked. He had about Atlantic City has so much to offer so be 15 people on stage doing everything prepared to hear me talk about every expe- from pretending they were fish about to rience I feel is worth sharing. I went to go get eaten by a shark to showing us their

sexiest dance moves. It was literally “hysterical.” I was laughing so hard I couldn’t stop. It was even more exciting because the people at my table were in disbelief, laughing so hard at their friends. I can honestly say that this show lived up to the hype and I would definitely recommend it. The show is here until Sept. 5 every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. If you love comedy and are looking to do something different for a date night, going out by yourself, or for a night with friends, then you will not want to miss this one. Be prepared to laugh your butt off and if you want to really have fun, bring someone who will go up on stage. n

hospital, which is trying to build a pediatric emergency room. And, two years ago, the center actually convinced me to take a role in the Vagina Monologues, at a fundraiser at Resorts. Very humorous! Through AAJ, I’ve also done service projects in downtown Miami, and with Habitat for Humanity at Musicians’ Village in New Orleans, building houses for musicians who lost their homes during Katrina.

Interview by Carole Mattessich

ITH HER FATHER A WELLknown, successful attorney, Alexa D’Amato had a tough act to follow — but as the “second generation” at the D’Amato Law Firm in Linwood, she’s distinguishing herself with her own thoughtful approach to law, her probono activities, and her deep devotion to a marvelous, extended family.

Your firm’s Web site features a cool photo that captures Atlantic City’s energy. We’re very proud of the D’Amato family heritage in Atlantic City. My dad’s uncle, Skinny D’Amato, owned the 500 Club, and my pop-pop Willy was manager. My dad even worked there when he was of age. I’ve been blessed with an amazing family today, as well: my husband Alex and my son, with a second child on the way — and my parents, sisters, grandmother, and aunts and uncles. We’re all very close and stay active in the community.

People don’t always think “love” and “compassion” when they think “attorney.” Recovering money at the end may be our main job, but it’s not necessarily the most important thing we do. We help people who are hurt, some catastrophically, and sometimes we’re part of their lives for years. You’re achieving a high profile at a young age. How will you keep it fresh? Loving what you do is at the heart of it. Work isn’t just something that I do in order to enjoy my weekends. And I love my home life with a passion, too. They feed one another, and that only makes you more happy and energetic.

You also support the Atlantic County Women’s Center. Tell me about the American Association for The center is phenomenal, helping abused and battered clients get their lives back Justice (AAJ). I’m involved with its New Lawyers’ together. They’re also very involved with Division, with about 5,000 members Shore Memorial Hospital — my family nationwide, and I’m actually about to just had a fundraiser last night for the

Any thought of entering politics? I saw what my dad went through trying to make a difference politically, and I think I’ll stay out of that. He went to Trenton as a Republican, but he supported whatever he believed would best protect peoples’ rights. ... The most important thing, of course, is to walk on the right side of an issue, making a difference even if it’s just for a few people, and I’m already in places where I can do that. n Send Carole Mattessich your suggestions for interesting subjects for our “People” column.

Atlantic City Food & Wine Festival

Fieri up the Grills

Expanded menu at this year’s Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival

Where: Various locations, Atlantic City When: July 30-Aug. 2 Details:

By Frank Gabriel


OR DEFINITIVE PROOF OF THE Atlantic City dining market’s growth and long-term viability, one needs look no further than the extended weekend of Thursday, July 30, through Sunday, Aug. 2. On those dates, Harrah’s Entertainment, partnering with TD Bank and the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Central and South Jersey Affiliate, will together sponsor the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival. Taking place at various locales throughout town — Caesars, Harrah’s, Showboat and Bally’s — will be more than 20 different events. Featured A-Listers include New Orleans restaurateur and longtime television star Emeril Lagasse, New York celeb chef Tom Colicchio (lead judge of Bravo’s Top Chef series) Ted Allen, the food and wine quintile of Bravo’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy and the Food Network’s spiky-haired, peripatetic Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives; Guy’s Big Bite.) Actually entering its third official year, the festival was originally a small entity titled Toast to the Coast. Like a microcosm of the entire regional food scene, it has expanded exponentially in a very limited amount of time. The visionary behind the festival, Jennifer Weissman, regional vice president of marketing for Harrah’s Entertainment, says this year’s TD Bank Atlantic City Food and Wine festival will be “one of the

Guy Fieri

The weekend kicks off on Thursday night with the cerebral Colicchio at the Jim Beam Gourmet Pizza Bash, inside Caesars’ Palladium Ballroom from 7-10pm. Saturday’s highlights include a California wine tour with Allen, an afternoon culinary demonstration and then a

Entering its third official year, the festival was originally a small entity titled Toast to the Coast. premier events of the summer.” She adds, “Harrah’s Entertainment has taken feedback from customers and guests at other culinary events, including the Celebrity Chef Series at Caesars, and committed to providing the best possible experience.” Illustrating her point, the festival offers an inclusive variety of gustatory entertainment, ranging in price from a large number of affordable $30 and $50 ducats to the Pink Ribbon Package, an all-access, weekend-long pass, for $2,000. Make plans quickly, as of press time for this feature, several events were already sold out.

separate evening event hosted by Lagasse, and Feast of Fieri at Caesars with the eponymous chef. Sunday, Fieri returns for a pair of appearances, including the Phillips Seafood Boardwalk Clambake from noon4pm in Bally’s Dennis Courtyard. But for our money, the most fascinating is Dinner and Movie, hosted by Ingrid Hoffman on Sunday night from 8-11. Hoffman, a Miami businesswoman and Food Network alum (Simply Delicioso) will close out this year’s schedule in grand style. Screening The Big Night, one of the finest motion pictures ever made about the restaurant industry (and set in northern

New Jersey) Hoffman will host a champagne dinner under the stars at Caesars’ rooftop pool. Even the presentation format is extraordinary: the film will be projected, drive-in style, from a jumbo-tron screen on the top floor of The Pier Shops at Caesars, across the Boardwalk. How cool is that? Our only remaining query is if kitchen staffers assigned this alluring finale will be lucky enough to attempt recreating the film’s signature dish, timbale, a complex, time-consuming Neapolitan specialty formed by multiple layers of meats, cheeses and vegetables baked within a pastry shell. Not wanting to neglect the charitable aspect of this all, the Susan G. Komen foundation will be holding a rally and ribbon-cutting ceremony prior to the Saturday opening of the Grand Market at Bally’s, the festival’s centerpiece. According to Weissman, “The fact that the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation is a beneficiary this year also makes the event even that much more special. It really adds an element that gives Harrah’s Entertainment, TD Bank and the chefs themselves a chance to give back to the community.” For a complete listing of events see n E-mail Frank Gabriel at

Address: 8017 Winchester Ave., Margate. 822-1610. Hours: 7am-3pm Sun.-Wed., and 7am-8pm Thurs.-Sat. History: Sophie’s Margate Cafe has managed to preserve the history of the original establishment — simply called the Margate Cafe — while giving the restaurant its own feel. Having been taken over by new management about a year ago, the yellow building, most recently named Dilba’s Margate Café, has held onto the local pancake-house feel that popularized the establishment while slowly expanding its menu to include more lunch and dinner options. Open for breakfast, lunch and, recently, dinner, Sophie’s Margate Café strives to create a homey feel, offering comfort-food favorites like peanut butter and banana pancakes, spaghetti and meatballs, and all homemade dinner options. Reasonably priced with nothing over $12.95, Sophie’s is a family-owned establishment and encourages you to stop by with your own family. Sophie’s Margate Café describes itself as very kid-friendly — and dog friendly as well! Bring the whole family for a home-cooked meal you won’t have to cook yourself. What to Know: Daily specials vary for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on Fridays and Saturdays. Recommended are the homemade crepes with fruit stuffed inside, or sample the pancakes with strawberries, bananas, and almost anything else your heart desires Dinner brings more homemade favorites like roast beef and chicken Florentine. There is outdoor seating and a kids’ menu available. — Kristen Kelleher stout while feasting on traditional Irish specialties.

Hall and Oates

Where: Borgata When: Friday, July 31, 8pm How Much: $55-$85

Top selling-duo of all time Hall & Oates bring truckload of hits to Borgata By Tom Wilk



JMU OL YN T3H0 , 0 2 e eWkEly 00 , 0290 0/ 9 A /C W AC E K. C L YO. M COM

ARYL HALL AND JOHN OATES have performed around the world in a career that has spanned four decades. It’s still a special event when the duo plays in Atlantic City. “It’s one of our regular stops,” Oates says of Friday’s concert (July 31) at the Borgata, Hotel, Casino and Spa. “People like to come to Atlantic City to see us and it’s like a homecoming for us,” says Oates, citing the band’s musical roots in Philadelphia. Growing up in North Wales, Pa., Oates has fond memories of the Jersey shore. “We would go all over the shore,” he says during a phone interview from his home in Colorado, recalling trips with his family to Cape May, Wildwood and Long Beach Island. Hall and Oates have been looking back musically as they put the finishing touches on Do What You Want, Be Who You Are, a four-CD box set that will survey the group’s entire career. It’s scheduled for release on Sept. 29 on the Sony/BMG/Legacy Label. The anthology will include songs that predate the formation of Hall and Oates, their biggest hits, previously unreleased live recordings and studio outtakes. Also included are collaborations with Temptations vocalists Eddie Kendrick and David Ruffin and Hall’s solo work with King Crimson founder Robert Fripp. The compilation will sum up a career that has made them the top-selling duo of all time with sales of more than 50 million records and 29 Top-40 singles.

“It’s like a friendship that turned into a brotherhood,” Oates says in describing their musical partnership. With their memorable harmonies, Hall and Oates have been identified as part of the Philly sound and blue-eyed soul. Their roots, though, go deep into other genres they were exposed to in and around the City of Brotherly Love. For Oates, folk, blues and bluegrass were an essential component of his musical education that he heard at such clubs as the Second Fret in Philadelphia and the Main Point in Bryn Mawr. “I had a unique experience in getting to see Doc Watson and ‘Mississippi’ John Hurt and hang out with them,” recalls Oates. After seeing Watson and playing with him following the show, Oates was mugged on the way back to his Philadelphia apartment. That incident inspired the writing of “Fall in Philadelphia, a highlight of Whole Oats, their 1972 debut album. “It’s a real kind of uplifting Philly soul chorus singing about a really depressing subject,” Hall admits in the box set liner notes. Despite the negative view of the city, the song earned a fair amount of airplay on Philly’s WMMR. Hall and Oates demonstrated the knack of using hard times and setbacks in life to create memorable music. “Sometimes, the heaviest emotions bring out the best songs. Many are the negative ones. It’s an opportunity to get something off your chest,” says Oates. A case in point is “She’s Gone,” the

‘Every artist needs time to evolve and the opportunity to experiment.’ – John Oates group’s first Top-40 single. The song grew out of Oates being stood up for a date on New Year’s Eve 1972. “There was something magical about ‘She’s Gone.’ It had a classical, timeless quality, even from the day we wrote it,” Oates recalls in the liner notes. “We were very conscious of the fact that the images we were writing about [were] so real, things that happen to you every day. That’s where a line like ‘worn as a toothbrush hanging in the stand’ comes from.” While their biggest hits occurred on RCA after leaving Atlantic Records, Oates credited their time on the label founded by Ahmet Ertegun to their musical development. “Every artist needs time to evolve and

the opportunity to experiment,” Oates says. “Atlantic believed in us and allowed us to grow,” he adds, noting their forays into folk, country, soul and rock on their three albums with the label. “[Atlantic Records producer] Arif Mardin surrounded us with unbelievable studio musicians,” Oates says, acknowledging the contributions of jazz saxophonist Joe Farrell and legendary drummer Bernard Purdie on the Abandoned Luncheonette album. Mardin was an early believer in the duo; he predicted Hall and Oates would become stars at their audition for Atlantic in the fall of 1971. Considering the vast changes in the music business over the the last decade, Oates is grateful for getting the time and opportunity to find his voice and sound in the 1970s. “If we were starting out today, we might not make it,” he says. n see more online @


Marla of TJ’s Homemade Ice Cream

fresh ice cream really means you’re eating what was made yesterday.” Still many ice cream aficionados appreciate the extra effort that ice cream shops like TJ’s in Ocean City, Springers in Stone Harbor of Lindy Hops in Galloway Township make. Let’s face it; finding an ice cream shop at the Jersey shore is only slightly harder than finding sand on a beach. But most ice cream shops bring in their product (Breyers being the most dominant brand) and don’t make it on site. There’s just something unique and special about homemade ice cream. “Basically, it all come down to the fat content,” Bauer says. “We use a mix that’s about 14 percent milk fat. Most mixes are lower than that. That’s high enough to be called premium ice cream.” If the fat scares you, there are lots of lower calorie alternatives (soft serve ice cream is generally lower in fat, for example), but in the grand scheme of things, milk fat equals flavor. Well that and a few other things. “We add our own sugar and flavors, fruit and the candy,” Pino says. “The advantage of homemade is that there are no preservatives and fillers and none of the chemicals used to extend shelf life. The ice cream we make today is only going to last about three months.” Well technically three months, though no tub made at TJ’s stays in the store more than a week or two. The store makes 30 to 35 tubs of ice cream a week. The other advantage is the flavors, which

can be pretty much anything the couple wants them to be. The staples are still the big sellers with mint chocolate chip TJ’s most popular flavor (next to vanilla bean, which is used in sundaes and shakes). But ever since chains like Ben & Jerry’s hit the market, ice cream flavors have taken off. “That is the most fun part,” Pino says. “You look at the crazy flavors they have and you say ‘I can top that.’ Or the kids come in and say: ‘Why don’t you make this flavor’ and you think ‘Why not? I’ll try it.’” Pino’s masterpiece is called A Day At The Zoo, a mixture of cotton candy ice cream, mini-marshmallows and animal crackers (and probably some more stuff we forgot).

Tradition: You Can’t Lick It

For some homemade ice cream shops, tradition is the key word. At Lindy Hops in Galloway Twp., opened in 1991, the shop is decked out in a ’50s motif, reminiscent of the days when ice cream fountains ruled the industry. “We want to be a place that people remember,” says Ed Jones, who makes ice cream daily for Lindy Hops. “We want to be a place that the kids will remember all their lives.” Some of Jones’ flavor masterpieces assure that, such as his turtle and mounds ice cream. To make the flavors, he constructs his own candy, such as adding coconut and chocolate rather than Mound bars. “It disperses the flavor all through the ice cream he says. “You’d swear you were eating a Mounds bar.” One of the longest traditions for


Along with several Atlantic City casino and other shore venues, here are some more spots to get homemade ice cream: • The Chelsea 111 S. Chelsea Ave., Atlantic City — The hotel’s pastry chefs keep its restaurants filled with homemade ice cream. • Bally’s Casino Boardwalk, Atlantic City — The casino makes all its own ice cream. • A La Mode Ice Cream Parlor 301 E. 55th St., Ocean City • TJ’s Home Made Ice Cream 100 E. Atlantic Ave., Ocean City • Marita’s Homemade Ice Cream 5912 Landis Ave., Sea Isle City • Springers Homemade Ice Cream 9420 Third Ave., Stone Harbor

homemade ice cream is Springer’s in Stone Harbor. The place has been around so long, they’re not even sure when they started. “We know it goes back to Prohibition,” says Tim Grieser, manager and ice cream maker for the shop. “We are kind of a tradition and in the summer there is always a line.” Like any shop, they have there own specialties such as cookie munster, a blue ice cream with cookie pieces and banana’s Foster. Again, vanilla is the biggest seller (because of the sundaes), but still, a new flavor at any homemade ice cream shop is never more than a little inspiration and some funky ingredients away. ■

HE MACHINE HUMS AS A long steam of a creamy white treat fills up a two-and-a-half gallon bucket. Ronny Bauer carefully guides the soft tasty goop into the bucket and then moves to a critical part. Taking a container of broken Snickers bars pieces and a big scoop, he starts plopping them in. To an observer, there doesn’t seem to be much measuring going on and a lot of Snickers going in. “At this point, I am doing this mostly by feel,” he says. “You put in what feels right.” Looking on is his wife, Marla Pino, who is the real ice cream pro of the two. While Bauer is in his first year as an ice cream maker, Pino has been at it a decade as owner of TJ’s Homemade Ice Cream on Atlantic Ave, in Ocean City. “Actually, the scoops are the same as any measuring cup, so it’s hard to screw it up,” she says. “But still, even when you follow the recipe, you look at it and say, “That’s not quite right. It needs more.” So in goes some more candy until it suits the couple’s standards. But even filled with Snickers (or M&Ms, marshmallows, Oreo cookies or whatever,) it’s still not technically ice cream yet. The whole concoction will have to spend about eight hours in a flash freezer at about 30 degrees below zero. Then it will emerge as ice cream, though rock hard ice cream. “It’s part of the process,” Bauer says. “Then you move it back to a regular freezer so it softens up enough to scoop. You have to do it or you won’t get that ice cream consistency. It will be more like custard. So

Slattery’s Tilton Golf Center Address: 338 Tilton Rd., Northfield Phone: 272-0520

Details: Owned by Ed and Terry Slattery for just over two years, Slattery’s Tilton Golf Center features 28 driving range stalls, eight of which are covered. Patrons can practice driving golf balls 24 hours per day, as there is an automated ball-dispensing machine and dawn-to-dusk lighting. The couple has been in the recreation business over 20 years and radically renovated the facilities, which also includes a nine-hole miniature golf course, a snack bar and vending machines. Buckets of range balls cost $5 for small, $8 for medium and $10 for jumbo. Mini golf is $3 for nine holes or $5 for 18 holes. This Sunday, Aug. 2, is Slattery’s inaugural Golf Fest to benefit Penny Angels Beagle Rescue. It is scheduled for noon-4pm, and a $15 fee includes nine holes of mini golf or a small bucket of range balls, hot dogs, soda, ice cream and prizes for children. Representatives will be in attendance from Penny Angels, a non-profit organization dedicated to placing unwanted, neglected or homeless beagles in homes with loving families (visit Dogs available for adoption will also be at the event.

The driving range



“There’s a couple who runs it [Joan and Ken Kerr] who have devoted themselves to rescuing these dogs,” says Ed Slattery. “We’ve actually adopted three of them ourselves. We hosted a fundraiser at Strike Zone [bowling lanes, in EHC] a couple of years ago, but now that we have the golf range and have more room, we thought we’d host it here so Penny Angels can bring some dogs over and maybe get a few adoptions.” Friday Golf Clinics: Tilton Fitness and Blue Heron Pines Golf Club in Egg Harbor City are offering golf clinics exclusively to Tilton Fitness members every Friday at 4pm at Blue Heron Pines. The clinics include one hour of golf instruction from the Blue Heron Pines Golf Academy professionals as well as golf-spe-

cific training from the Tilton Fitness trainers. The clinics are open to golfers of all skill levels. Each clinic includes nine holes of golf and a cart. The cost is $35 per person per session. Tilton Fitness has locations in Galloway Township, Mays Landing and Northfield. Blue Heron Pines is located at 550 Country Club Drive in EHC. Call the Blue Heron Pines Golf Academy at 965-1800 for more info. Golf Pro Tip: This week’s tip is from David Lee, director of instruction at the Golf Academy at Blue Heron Pines in EHC. It deals with maximizing distance by improving your swing. “Throughout the golfing season, people are always looking for more distance. They either watch the pros on television and/or look for new equipment instead of trying to improve their swing. Here are a few tips to maximize your distance by concentrating on a few things. “Turn your shoulders to at least 90 degrees [to the ground]. When making your backswing, try to get your left shoulder [if you’re right handed] to just right of the ball without losing the position of your feet. Make sure at the completion of your swing, you are balanced with your front foot — the foot closest to the target — well planted on the ground, and only the heel of your back foot is off the ground.” — Ray Schweibert

honestly say is a pleasure to be around — as well as look at. Looking forward: I could make a lot of jokes about how I look forward to seeing Buffie back again.

Looking back at five years of summer stories By Raymond Tyler


HIS Y E A R I S T H E F I F T H I N M Y adventures with AC Weekly. I decided that this week would be as good a week as any to look back and reflect on some of my favorite stories from summers past.

cars for people who like to “blast the system” in the summertime and “hold court” from their car, while people around them look on enviously. I also need to write a story about “green” cars like the Toyota Prius and others soon.

Fast and Furious

It Does a Buffy Good

In the Sept. 1, 2005 issue I went to local dealerships to check out the hottest summer cars. I test drove classic sports cars like the Corvette and I even sat in a vintage ’Vette from the year of my birth. I also took a test drive in what I would call a “sports truck.” They were supposed to be the next big thing — trucks that had space to carry your stuff but went from zero to 60 in no time. Looking back: I should have taken those cars on an open road where I could have gotten some speed out of them. Looking forward: I need to write a column about

In the Aug. 11, 2005 Issue I spoke with popular African-American swimsuit model Buffie Carruth as she was set to come down for the Marty Small Silk and Linen Party. I asked Carruth as many sexy questions as the editorial department would let me get away with. She did discuss the difference between mainstream men’s magazines like Stuff and the African-American magazines that she’s been a pioneering figure in like Today’s Black Man. Looking back: Buffie and I stay in touch. I have been to several parties hosted by her and she is someone who I can

There She Is

In the June 22, 2006 issue I covered an appearance by then Miss America Jennifer Berry. This was important because Atlantic City was still stunned that the pageant had left town. I really enjoyed writing this article because Berry’s platform was to address underage drinking and driving under the influence. Looking back: Miss Berry was wonderful in relating and speaking with our area’s youth. Looking forward: I would like to interview the Miss America winners annually.

All That Jazz

Last year in the June 12 issue, I spoke with Chicken Bone Beach Jazz Series organizer Henrietta Shelton about her drive to keep the jazz series and memories of the “black beach” alive. Looking back: I hope my column played a small

part in her series getting more funds for this year. Looking forward: I can’t wait to hear that the Chicken Bone Beach free live jazz concert series will remain on the A.C. Boardwalk for another 10 years. Also last year, in the July 17 issue, I interviewed the great dance legend Pattie Harris. It’s always humbling to interview someone who has meant so much to me both as a professional and as a hometown native. Looking Back: I should add Harris to my annual interview list as well. Looking forward: I really would like to be as big an influence on young people as Harris was on me. n

Danny Veltri’s Hell-ish New Job I By David J. Spatz

F ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE, THEN Danny Veltri is performing nightly in Atlantic City’s tastiest new venue. In an affirmation that the line is blurred between food and entertainment, Veltri, the season 5 winner of the Fox television reality series Hell’s Kitchen, is instantly recognized as a celebrity as he strolls through the bar and dining rooms of Fornelletto Cucina Italiano, a new restaurant at Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa. As part of his winner’s package — which included a $250,000 prize — Veltri has taken a job as one of five sous chefs in chef Stephen Kalt’s restaurant, which opened late last month. For Veltri, a 25-year-old whose talent and kitchen credentials belie his youth, the casino gig has been like stepping out of the frying pan and into the fire. “I’ve always worked for the mom-andpop independent places, so this is my first real taste of the corporate world,” says Veltri, who came to Atlantic City after serving as executive chef at a small beachfront restaurant called Flip Flops Grill & Chill in New Smyrna Beach, Fla. “A busy night for me used to be 300 or 400 people,” he added. “Busy nights at Borgata are like 800 people. It’s a whole different world.” Veltri has had to make a lot of adjustments, both professionally and personally, to adapt to the pressure-cooker environment of a high-volume gourmet

casino restaurant, not the least of which is a radical change in cuisine. In Florida, he specialized in developing and preparing so-called “Floribbean” dishes, which combine the fresh fish, flavors and cooking techniques indigenous to Florida and the Caribbean. In Fornelletto, he’s had to master a large, ambitious and innovative Italian menu created by Kalt. Kalt is familiar with making such an adjustment. He received his classical training as a French chef in the kitchen of New York’s legendary Le Cirque restaurant. It wasn’t until after he spent extensive time traveling through Italy that Kalt began exploring and developing Italian dishes. But Veltri wasn’t concerned about changing cooking styles. He may not have been an Italian chef before coming to Fornelletto, but he knows his way around an Italian kitchen. “My family is Italian and I watched my grandmother cook all the time, so I’ve been around Italian food my whole life,” he says. Another adjustment for Veltri has been adapting to the Atlantic City lifestyle. Born in Sarasota, Fla., he’s worked in several laid-back restaurants. Now, this small-town kid is trying to fit into a hectic 24/7 environment. In Florida, he enjoyed hunting, fishing and surfing in his free time. But

ed or shunned like some guy who just walked in here from nowhere,” he says. Not that the confident-bordering-oncocky chef cares. Early in Hell’s Kitchen, he showed he doesn’t care what people think of him. Still, he’s treading lightly in the new kitchen. “I’m not coming in here swinging my battle axe,” he says. “I’m going to ease my way in and get established.” He paused for a moment and then added with a laugh, “Then the guys will probably start hating me.” Although Kalt’s credentials include operating innovative gourmet restaurants in New York and Las Vegas, Veltri isn’t intimidated at the prospect of work“I don’t think I’d have much time for ing for the high-profile chef. After all, he that anyway,” he says. “This new job survived 16 weeks of withering verbal consumes a lot of my time. The whole assaults from foul-mouthed Hell’s Kitchen creator Gordon Ramsay.

Veltri began his culinary career at 15 scrubbing pots at the bottom of the D AVID S PATZ kitchen food chain. He quickly worked Casual conversations with his way onto the line as a chef.

And beyond a short deer and duck season in southern New Jersey, there aren’t many hunting opportunities, either.

‘This new job consumes a lot of my time. The whole [restaurant] profession does.’

Time Left to Rent

Although summer is well under way, there are still some great opportunities to find quality rental units By Sharon Harris-Zlotnick


ON’T FRET. FOR THOSE undecided if they should come, or when they should come, or how much to spend if they do, there is still time to find a really great beach house for a week or more. This year’s rental picture at the Jersey shore differs from past years because the shaky economy has created a general wariness among potential renters. The procrastinators have great options. While many communities have traditionally offered weekly rentals, most communities mandated longer stays of at least a month. Broker/owner Linda Novelli of Re/ Max Platinum Properties in Margate says there has always been interest in weekly rentals in Margate and Ventnor. However, to comply with municipal restrictions, she had to refer potential renters to Brigantine and Ocean City. This year, renters have more options because Longport, Margate and Ventnor have relaxed their regulations as they anticipated tougher conditions. City officials and local business merchants believe it is better to have more tenants patronizing businesses for shorter time frames than to have lovely vacant homes because of high rental prices. Landlords, Novelli says, have slowly embraced the new rental policies. Ian Lazarus, CRB, CRS of Island Realty Group, also assures potential renters that bargains are out there, with a large inven-

tory of last-minute available choices. He urges customers to call an agent who specializes in a specific region. “The Jersey Shore rental market in Cape May County towns is down eight to 10 percent from last year,” says Lazarus. “Prices are down five to 10 percent this year in Ocean City, Sea Isle City and the Wildwoods. Rental fees have dropped approximately 15 percent in Avalon and Stone Harbor.” Checking with local agents, here are some available homes that may still be rented for at least a week or more: Wildwood Crest, 7108 Park Blvd. — An excellent location lets the renter walk to the beach from this bayfront threebedroom, two-bathroom house. Boaters can dock their boat. The huge back deck is perfect entertainment spot for parties, etc. Rental fees are $1,500-$1,800 per week. Contact Ian Lazarus of Island Realty Group at 457-0258. Margate, 17 S. Vendome Ave. (south side of Parkway) — This great house is close to the beach. The four-bedroom, two-bath home has ocean views, a nice upstairs deck and downstairs porch. A large dining room, eat-in kitchen and sun porch are ideal for entertaining. The house has central air conditioning and a full laundry room. Rental is available from Aug. 1 through Sept. 15. The $12,500 price is negotiable. Contact Linda Novelli of Re/Max Platinum properties at 8223300 (office) or 839-3715 (cell).

Ventnor, 108 S. Sacramento Ave. — This recently renovated, beach-block house is currently unfurnished, but the owner will furnish with newly rented furniture for the tenant. The six-bedroom, four-bath home has new tile and granite throughout with multiple porches and decks on three floors. It features central air-conditioning and full laundry facilities. The rental fee from Aug. 1 through Labor Day weekend is $18,000. The house is also available for sale. Contact Paula Hartman of Hartman Home Team Realty at 487-7234 (office) or 271-7337 (cell). Brigantine, 215 N. 13th St. — This luxury six-bedroom, five full and onehalf bath new construction beach-block house also includes amenities such as an outside shower, hardwood flooring, a one-car attached garage with automatic opener and numerous decorative touches. Pets allowed with restrictions. Rental costs are $4,500 per week in August and September. Longport, 3305 Amherst Ave. — A unique bayfront luxury house, this freshly painted four-bedroom furnished home has four full and one half baths. The gorgeous views can be enjoyed from almost every

room, including a roof-top deck. The home is also a short walk to the beach. Pets are allowed with restrictions. The rental fee for August is $13,000. Contact Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors at 822-4200, ext. 134. Ventnor, 109 Frankfort Ave. — This newly constructed, beach-block contemporary is only three lots from the beach. Enjoy fabulous ocean views from any one of the four decks. Five bedrooms include two master suites. The house has four full and one half-baths, plus an elevator to all three floors. Cooks will delight in the gourmet kitchen with a center island. Entertain in the great room. Two-car garage parking included. Pets are allowed with restrictions. The rental fee for August is $20,000. Contact Prudential Fox & Roach Realtors at 8224200, ext. 134. Ventnor, 119 S. Sacramento — This 4,000 square-foot beachfront gem has five bedrooms, four elegant full baths and a world-class kitchen. Outside, a beautiful in-ground pool enhances the Boardwalk location. Pets are allowed with restrictions. The rental fee for August is $30,000.
