Educational Wine Tasting at A.C. Country Club By Carmen Capoferri

F

or most casual wine drinkers, when it comes to finding appropriate food and wine pairings the decisionmaking process usually boils down to a simple case of trial and error. For instance, if a random block of cheese tastes passably good with a red, then success. If not, then it’s hopefully better luck next time. Thankfully, international winemaker Chris Cameron from California-based Broken Earth Winery is stopping by the Atlantic City area to eliminate all the guesswork involved with food and wine pairings. On Friday, Aug. 2, at 5pm, Cameron will be at the Atlantic City Country Club in Northfield to hold an educational seminar designed to help participants discover the science behind taste. Cameron will guide participants through a variety of exercises that highlight how we experience different taste sensations. A $39 entry fee includes wine tasting and a wide variety of paired appetizers. RSVP to 236-4465 or visit ACcountryclub.com. The seminar is suitable for novices and experts alike.

or the Bay-Atlantic Symphony’s fourth concert during its five-concert summer series at the Borgata, two works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart — a violin concerto and one of his signature symphonies — will be featured on Sunday, Aug. 4 (5pm, $25). Held in the intimate Music Box at the Borgata, the program will feature world-renown violinist Kai Gleusteen joining the symphony for Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major, Op. 218, composed when Mozart was just a teenager, as well as his Symphony No. 41 in C major, K. 551, Jupiter — the last of his symphonies. The Bay-Atlantic Symphony is the resident orchestra of Stockton College, among other regional venues, and performs in Avalon during the summer for its “Symphony by the Sea” series. The summer concert series at Borgata will conclude with Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 and Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2 (featuring soloist Stefan Jackiw) on Sunday, Aug. 18. On Sept. 22 (3pm), the Symphony will return to the Borgata for its 2013-14 gala season opener — Live and Let Die: A Symphonic Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney. For tickets call 866-900-4849, or visit theborgata.com. or the Borgata box office.

Art of Surfing Festival in Ocean City By Lori Hoffman

T

he annual Art of Surfing Festival is not a surfing contest, its an exhibit of artwork featuring images of surfing captured by talented artists. This year’s event takes place at the Ocean City Music Pier on Thursday Aug. 1, Friday Aug. 2 and Saturday Aug. 3. The event will include a silent auction to benefit the OCNJ CARE (Clean Up and Recovery Project). The event features surfing art, surf memorabilia, a “meet the artists” event, live music, a vintage swimsuit fashion show and more. Hours are Thurs., 5-11pm; Fri., Sat., noon-10pm. Admission is free. For more info or to donate an item for the silent auction, call 856-3137803. Following Hurricane Sandy, OCNJ CARE was created and has been collecting donations. In the first round of funding, more than 100 Ocean City families were provided with much needed money to help their restoration process. To contact OCNJ CARE call 1-855-622-2730.

he annual Elephant Talk Indie Music Festival returns to Atlantic City for the fourth year Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 2-4, and will again feature over 100 independent, original-music bands performing on five stages at two adjacent A.C. locations, Le Grand Fromage (25 Gordons Alley) and the Boneyard (20 S. Virginia Ave.). Entry is $10 per day and parking is free. You must be at least 18 to attend after 7pm (all ages prior to 7pm) and 21 to drink. Visit acweekly.com and click the blog link off the “News and Views” tab to see a complete lineup of the bands, or search “elephant talk indie music festival” on Facebook. “Music to me an extension of the heart and soul, and surrounding myself with people who share these feelings is very important to me,” says event organizer Jerry Ryan. “Since 2009, the countless friendships and interactions that have been made have taken a life of their own, and seem to have branched out to all parts of the globe. It’s hard to believe that what started out as a seedling has become and remained a beautiful flower with some watering from me and plenty of sunlight from family and friends.” This year Ryan and his cohorts are making a documentary video from hours of footage from the first three festivals. “Working on the documentary with me is DJ Hill,” says Ryan. “I have hundreds of hours of behind-the-scenes video and live footage, and have decided to weave it all together in a beautiful story. The idea behind the documentary was to capture those lasting relationships and bonds that have been made through our music community, while showcasing these amazing bands that have passed through this area, under the radar to most, but have made a lasting impact within our music circle.” see more online @

here’s something relaxing and therapeutic about being on calm water that cannot easily be explained, and something relaxing and therapeutic about sipping a cocktail that is simple to explain. One thing for certain, though, is that when both entities are combined, maximum relaxation is the ultimate result. Jeff George is part of a family that has operated party-boat cruises for the better part of 45 years. For the past nine of those years, George has captained his 60-foot party boat Cruisn 1 on a variety of daily outings ending with a 6-7pm Happy Hour Tour that traverses the scenic St. George’s Thoroughfare bay on the south end of Brigantine and some equally easygoing waterways off the Absecon Inlet in Atlantic City. “We’ve been running it from our dock in Gardner’s Basin [800 N. New Hampshire Ave.], and before that from Trump Marina [now Golden Nugget], for the last nine years at 6 o’clock,” says George. “The six o’clock tour is entirely in the calm waters of the back bay. We leave Gardner’s Basin and travel across the channel to the Cove in Brigantine, we go past the four-wheel-drive beach, cruise ahead to St. George’s, then circle back to the marina at Golden Nugget. Depending on the tide we’ll sometimes go into Snug Harbor [a small, serene cove just below Gardner’s Basin], then back to our dock.” The whole tour takes about an hour and guests can either buy a regular boarding ticket ($17 for adults) and purchase drinks individually, or they can buy a “Cruise & Cocktail” ticket that includes fare and all house drinks, beer, wine or soft drinks for $30. George personally runs five of the seven daily Happy Hour Tours himself and turns the helm over to another captain on Mondays and Tuesdays, his days off. Each tour is staffed by two bartenders and each evening different drink specials are offered. “When guests arrive they can go right to the bar and once we’re underway we also provide full service,” says George, who has operated Cruisn 1 out of Gardner’s Basin for the last 16 years, and whose father started the cruising business in 1969 in Sea Isle City. “[Drink specials] are usually on the whim of the bartenders. Last night we did a Southern Hurricane and $2.50 Bud Lights, tonight we’re doing an Orange Crush. We’ll put a beer special up each night and we’ll do a mixed drink special as well. “All ages are welcome, but something we do on the Happy Hour Tour that we don’t offer on the other tours [which include a Morning Skyline Cruise at 11am, an

facebook.com/ACWeekly @acweekly

Cruisn 1 in St. George’s Bay

Afternoon Delight Cruise at 4pm, and an extremely popular two-hour Dolphin Watching Cruise guided by an onboard marine naturalist from 1-3pm daily] is a cocktail package for the 21 and over crowd,” says George. “That’s a real popular way to go, especially since we do a lot of bachelor and bachelorette parties. Tonight we have a group of 18 girls who all work together and are having a little office party. Most of them are doing the Cruise & Cocktail package and those who don’t drink will just pay the regular price to get onboard.” Rarely in the summertime does the party boat call it a day after the Happy Hour Tour ends. Cruisn 1 has become a popular spot for floating private parties later in the evening. “When we come in at 7, I’d say on average six out of the seven nights we end up going back out again,” says George. “Tonight we have a group from Pleasantville that has been renting the boat for an annual fundraiser for about the last eight years. Tomorrow I have a fundraiser with the Atlantic County Toys for Kids program and I think this is the 11th year they’re using the boat for their fundraiser. I’ve got a birthday party on Sunday — almost every night we’re out for birthdays, fundraisers, anniversary parties, wedding receptions, corporate or special events — very few nights do we come back from the Happy Hour Cruise and not head back out for another couple of hours.” Patrons are not the only ones who return to Cruisn 1 summer after summer. George’s staff has been with him from five years to the entire 16-year stretch he has operated the boat out of Gardner’s Basin. “I’ve been fortunate to have a very loyal following not only of guests who come back each year, but a staff that includes people who have been with me here the entire time,” he says. “Several are teachers or those who work in education during the school year who come to work here when school lets out, which is perfect for me.” Visit atlanticcitycruises.com or call 3477600 for more. ■ see more online @

Answering Your Questions Y By David Spatz • feedback@acweekly.com

ou’ve got questions, we’ve got answers. Today’s column was adapted from questions we’ve received about Atlantic City entertainment and related news items:

What’s with the lack of shows at Boardwalk Hall this summer? Seems like we’ve been getting the A-listers for the past four or five years but this summer all we’re seeing is Beyoncé? It’s bad enough [gamblers] are ignoring Atlantic City, but why have the stars turned their backs on us? Hey, you’re forgetting the oddly entertaining twin bill of the country band Rascal Flatts and the ‘70s-‘80s rock band Journey. They’re headlining the big room on the Boardwalk Sunday night (Aug. 4), so they haven’t stopped believing in Atlantic City (sorry, couldn’t resist). But you’re right — the big shows are few and far between this summer, and there are several possible explanations. If you ask many of the promoters, it’s a matter of economics based on the Hall’s high labor costs, a problem that’s been well-documented for years. One promoter told me it’s not a question of an ROI — return on investment — that’s keeping the big shows away, rather it’s the LOI — loss on investment. Too many promoters say the labor costs make turning a profit difficult, if

not impossible, at Boardwalk Hall. Another possible reason could be the instability right now with the future of SMG, the management company that runs both the Hall and the Atlantic City Convention Center. SMG has had that contract for 20 years, and it’s up for another re-bid. Several months ago, the old Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority, (ACCVA) board voted to accept a bid from Global Spectrum to operate the buildings. That company is a subsidiary of Comcast-Spectacor. Global Spectrum operates dozens of major venues, including the Wells Fargo Center and the Liacouras Center at Temple University in Philadelphia. But for several reasons, the first bids were tossed out and the process was started from scratch with SMG and Global Spectrum as the sole bidders. However, since then, the ACCVA which owns Boardwalk Hall and the Convention Center, has undergone a major change itself. The ACCVA was folded into the ever-expanding tentacles of the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority and the former ACCVA board has been dissolved. So finding a new operator for the Hall and the Convention Center is now in the hands of the CRDA. And who knows how long that could take? Bottom line is that show promoters would like to have an idea of who they’re dealing with before they commit to a booking. Oh,

they’d also like to make a few bucks on the shows, too. My family and I are the world’s biggest Taylor Swift fans. Why hasn’t she come to Atlantic City? Didn’t she grow up here? Easy answer to this question. There isn’t a room in town big enough to handle Swift’s show — not the physical show itself, but the number of people she’ll draw. In five years, Swift has gone from opening act to one of the most popular artists on the planet, and she did it by crossing over from country to the pop charts, where she now rules both. Because she likes to keep her shows affordable to her massive legion of fans, Swift needs a big arena, and Boardwalk Hall — at approximately 12,500 seats — is a medium-sized arena at best. If you want Taylor, better have at least 20,000 seats — more if possible. Two weeks ago, Swift filled Lincoln Financial Field (home of the Eagles) in Philadelphia, which should give you an idea of the size of the venues in which she performs these days. But she’s on every casino’s wish list, and if they can figure out a way to bring her to town, they will. As far as Swift growing up here, she and her family used to be summer residents of Stone Harbor until Taylor was about 13 years old. She taught herself to play the guitar sitting on the dock of the bay at her family’s summer home, and when she was just 11 she was a regular on karaoke night at the former

Henny’s Restaurant in Stone Harbor. That’s where she learned to get comfortable singing in front of an audience of strangers (or so she told me during an interview five years ago). Is it true Phish is coming back to Boardwalk Hall? Sure is. The world’s best jam band will reprise its 2010 Atlantic City debut with three shows at Boardwalk Hall beginning Halloween Night (now that should be fun) and concluding Nov. 2, which will also mark the end of the band’s fall tour. Even though they performed three shows in the Hall at the end of October 2010, Phish, in a roundabout way, paved the road for the big shows at Bader Field by proving Atlantic City had the logistics and infrastructure to handle a multi-day series of big shows. Were it not for Phish, their management company would have never brought the Dave Matthews Band Caravan to Bader Field. Nor would Metallica have brought its first-ever Orion Music + More Festival to town last year (which apparently wasn’t a pleasant experience for the heavy metal gods, but that’s for a different column). Now, what happened to chase those promoters away from Atlantic City and Bader Field this year is a matter of speculation. There are several schools of thought, and to begin listing them now would exhaust the room that’s set aside each week for this column. n

cean City is home of fun and quirky contests. Two of the most popular — the Miss Crustacean Pageant and the Hermit Crab Race — take place on Wednesday, Aug. 7, both celebrating their 40th anniversaries. The fun starts at 1pm with the Miss Crustacean Pageant on the 6th Street Beach. Crustaceans adorned in colorful and elegantly painted shells will waddle down the runway while the pageant theme song “Here It Comes, Miss Crustacean” plays in the background. The hermit crabs will be judged on their deportment, appearance, costumes, theme originality and originality of their back drops. and the winner will be awarded with the “Coveted Cumber Rind Cup,” a symbol of “Crustacean Comeliness.” As the city’s public relations director Mark Soifer explains, the cucumber represents a year’s supply of groceries for a hermit crab, if supplemented with other items such as tree bark and swamp water. Former title winners include Crabunzel, Crabahontis, Crabopatra, Crab Mc Muffin, Taxi Crab, Copacrabana, Crab Salad, and Pirates of the Crabibbean. This odd tradition in Ocean City has been named one of the nation’s 10 most unusual events by U.S. News and World Report. ”It’s odd. It’s fun. It’s original. And only held in Ocean City,” says Soifer. Following the pageant is the Hermit Crab Races, where 150 hermit crabs will compete for the title of “The King of Klutz” and receive a plaque declaring such. After the bugler sounds a call, the crabs will waddle and tumble over an 8-foot piece of plywood, and the crab to reach the end first wins. The world record title holder is Hermie, who completed the race in 6.3 seconds 37

The hermit crabs will be judged on their deportment, appearance, costumes, theme originality and originality of their back drops. years ago. The Miss Crustacean Pageant and the Hermit Crab Races are sponsored by the National Association of Crab Activities at the Beach (NASCRAB). Organizers caution owners to not leave unwanted hermit crabs on the beach after the events, as they are not indigenous to Ocean City and thus would not be able to fend for themselves. Owners who do not want to keep the crabs after the events

should turn their crab into a NASCRAB official, who will secure a safe home for the crustacean. In addition to the crab-related festivities, a sand-sculpting contest will also be held at 9am on Aug. 7, and prizes will be awarded for different age groups. All events are free to participate and do not require pre-registration. For more information, contact Soifer at 609-525-9300 or msoifer@hotmail.com. ■

reetings and salutations. And if you were listening to the live broadcast on KOOL 98.3 from Memories in Margate, you know last weekend was the bomb. It started on Friday night with a gigantic birthday party for Donna and the kids from West Catholic, O’Hara, and Hallahan. Then in came the Bruders and the Mullens — that’s John Mullen, the man who created Apple Vacations, along with son Tim and his lovely wife. And it got even better. Saturday night my buddy Yogi and his entire family danced the night away. I did his daughter Natalie’s wedding a year ago, and she and her husband Paul still looks like 19-year-old newlyweds. And yes, that was Councilman Jim Kenney who was part of the dancing crowd along with Dave Casinelli from Yuengling, his beautiful wife Joanne, and in-laws and friends. Joe and Dawn Ranieri were there, and Dr. Hussain celebrated his birthday along with his lovely wife Roseanne and friends and family. Then, straight from Florida and Philly, in danced some of my favorite people, Alon and Jodie, Bobby and Gayle, and Albert and Renee. Even Jimmy Dee was there with his lovely wife Cathy and Franz, who was celebrating his wife Sophia’s birthday. The Geator Garden was packed, with everybody enjoying the amazing sandwiches from Paesano’s. And on and on. It gets better every weekend, so make sure that you don’t miss out on the fun. You will hear it live on Kool 98.3 on the weekends. And remember, our Happy hour at Memories starts Wednesday through Saturday at 4 and Sunday at 2 with the sounds of Sinatra and friends, and then on Sunday nights, the Whacked Pack with Tom Pizzi and Mario Rocco. Hope to see you there. Now, let’s ask the Geator.

Yes, the early Three Degrees recorded on Swan and were managed by Richard Barrett, who modeled them after what he did with the Chantels. They were mainly a club act until Richard introduced them to Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff, and they hit it big on Philly International. As popular as they were here, they were even more popular in Europe, where they were the equivalent of the Supremes. You play a song by the Jackson Five that I

As popular as they were here, [the Three Degrees] were even more popular in Europe like a lot but don’t hear very often, “Looking Through the Window.” Did Michael write it? — Rich, EHT Great song that came at the beginning of Michael really starting to mature as an artist. It was written by Clifton Davis, who also wrote their big hit “Never Can Say Goodbye.” Yes, the same Clifton Davis who as an actor co-starred in the 1970s TV show That’s My Mama. Somewhere I read that Pal Joey was considered to be a groundbreaking musical in its time. You have talked about Pal Joey in the past so perhaps you could shed some light on this for me. Thank you — Rosemary G., Palm Beach, Fla. For the most part, Broadway musicals were more like variety shows with light story lines and happy endings. Showboat, Oklahoma, and Pal Joey were all unusual for their times because they dealt with serious topics — interracial marriage, a serial killer, and in Pal Joey, a very adult love affair. Its hero was basically a heel who was being “kept” by an older woman. Because Gene Kelly, the original star, was so charming, he was able to get away with it. It also showed a darker side of the night club scene and even contained a strip tease — not that big a deal in the 1957 movie but pretty daring for 1940 when it made its Broadway debut. n

Flatt Out Fun

Rascal Flatts, Journey, Cassadee Pope Boardwalk Hall Sunday, Aug. 4, 6:30pm How Much: $55 to $149.50

EVENT INFO

Superstar country trio Rascal Flatts team up with Journey at Boardwalk Hall By Lori Hoffman • feedback@acweekly.com

R

ascal Flatts has been touring this summer with The Band Perry but for shows in Hershey, Pa. and Boardwalk Hall, the co-headliner is the classic rock band Journey. Gary LeVox, his cousin Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney have been keeping their bright country pop sound at the top of the charts for more than a decade with an impressive number of No. 1 country hits including “These Days,” “Bless the Broken Road,” “Fast Cars and Freedom,” “What Hurts the Most,” “Stand,” “Here,” “Why Wait” and most recently, 2012’s “Banjo.” Toss in a bunch of Vocal Group of the Year trophies from CMT, CMA and AMA, People’s Choice Awards, a Grammy Award for best country song (“Bless the Broken Road”) a bunch of platinum selling albums and sold out concerts and Rascal Flatts has earned the title of the most popular vocal group in country music for the last decade. Their connection with Journey goes back to June 2012 when they invited Journey to perform “Don’t Stop Believin’ with them to close the CMT Music Awards. The two groups later headlined the Super Bowl XLVII Crossroads concert at the New Orleans Sugar Mill on February 2 of this year. In a phone interview with Jay DeMarcus, he talked about the group’s next album, working with Journey and how much he would like to see the group do more television appearances, like their guest-starring role on CSI.

Despite all the changes in how music is delivered to fans and the decline of the CD, your group has managed to keep cranking out platinum-selling releases. How have you remained so consistent? I think it is twofold. It’s our ability to follow our gut [feelings] and cut the best songs we can get our hands on. We cut music that moves us, and we’ve been able to have such a great relationship with the writers that bring us top shelf material, and we’ve writ-

I love it. It’s got the mystique of being one of those old venues, a classic place that has a lot of history. You can feel the aura when you enter the building. You’re working on a new album. How is that going? We haven’t worked on it since we started our summer tour, but we did a lot in April and May. We’re working with a new producer this time. Howard Benson [who’s done albums with Kelly Clarkson, Papa Roach and Santana] and he is doing a really, really good job. I’m excited about the turn the music is taking. It’s undeniably Rascal Flatts, but having new ears and a fresh perspective has been fun.

‘I really do believe we have some of the best fans.’ ten some of those ourselves. The second and most important thing is that our fan base has been so devoted to us and has literally grown up with us. They buy our albums and come to our shows. It sounds so trite, but I really do believe we have some of the best fans in the world. You’re teaming up with Journey here in Atlantic City. How did that come about? It was CMT that had us to the Crossroads show with them, where the format is getting onstage and playing each other’s music. We had such a blast doing it and we became fast friends and there were no egos in the room, so we wanted to see if we could do more together. We decided to put a few shows on the books

to see how they did and see how people responded. I’ve got my fingers crossed hoping that people love it as much as we love playing together so that somewhere down the line we can do more. Besides your own sets, you are going to collaborate on a few songs right? Oh yeah. We’re going to rehearse a few days before and knock the dust off a few of the tunes we played together. I’m really excited about it. There is nothing better than standing on stage playing a Journey tune, I can tell you that. You’ve performed several times at Boardwalk Hall. How do you like the venue?

facebook.com/ACWeekly @acweekly

What tidbits can you give us since you said it has a different feel. We worked with Dan Huff on the last five records. He’s a dear friend and a world-class talent, but we’ve got what we did with Dan down pretty well. This time we took some chances. Sound wise, it is just a bit edgy and not quite as polished as people are used to hearing from us. It’s got some rawness to it and is a little more guitar-driven. Social media is crucial these days for getting news out to fans. How much of that do you put out there and do you enjoy it? I love it. I do everything. I do Instagram, Vine, Twitter. I try to stay connected with our fans as much as I can. I still don’t think Gary knows what Twitter is. He’s the one band member who doesn’t actively use Twitter, but Joe Don and I are avid users. It’s a real tangible way for fans to feel they are in touch with us. You guys were great in an episode of CSI. Any chance you will turn up on more TV shows? It’s something we would love to do. The acting thing is something that we all enjoy. I really, really enjoy it and hope to do more of it as the chances present themselves. ■ see more online @

Prime Cuts, Max Value

Max’s Prime

Trump Plaza Hotel & Casino

Perhaps best described as an old-school steak house with new-age values, Max’s — now Max’s Prime — has been an A.C. fixture for more than 25 years. By Frank Gabriel • feedback@acweekly.com

I

n an Atlantic City market crowded with big-shouldered, corporate-backed steak houses, Max’s Steakhouse — recently re-christened Max’s Prime — at Trump Plaza remains unique. For starters, as far as we know, it’s our town’s most venerable, having been in existence for more than 25 years. Although newly repositioned — more on that shortly — and partially renamed, the facility still offers a charming level of comfort and pleasant quirkiness, not unlike dining in a private club. The description that would come to mind might even be “boutique,” although Max’s predates the use of that idiom as a restaurant term. Maybe we should call it an oldschool steak house with new-age values. That recent update, including a dramatic drop in price points, was without any apparent impact on the quality of ingredients or preparation. A recent weekend meal began with several superior seafood starters — a simple, but elegant jumbo lump crab meat cocktail, pan-seared diver scallops, and stunningly-fresh local New Jersey blue point oysters. Those half-dozen bivalves, highly touted by Trump executive chef Les Bender, were deeply cupped and laden with the ocean’s fresh breath, clearly retrieved from the Atlantic only recently. The trio of silverdollar sized scallops proved equally succulent, sauced with a robust combine of pancetta and vermouth then finished with citrus butter. Perhaps our single favorite plate of this evening was New Orleans crab stew. This hearty blend, crafted classically via a traditional roux, resulted in an appealing orangerust hue. Within, intense seasonal tomato flavors practically exploded upon our palates, accented with just a hint of heavy

Max’s has been in existence for more than 25 years. cream. Sweet, sour and spicy elements arrived, melding completely in unison. Just when you would think this blend couldn’t get any better, those lovely, intact pieces of blue crab made their appearance. Like a guest star who understands how to compliment a performance without attempting to steal the show, the chunks of crustacean deferred, copasetic with their tomato lead player. Local tomatoes were similarly highlighted in my beefsteak salad — four thick slices interspersed with red onion rings, crumbled bleu and drizzled with balsamic syrup. We admired the creativity evident. Rather than the standard “Caprese” route, with mozza-

rella and an olive oil, the pungent blue and zesty vinegar created a refreshingly offbeat, summery variant. As a main course, my companion opted for Chilean sea bass, roasted and accompanied by asparagus risotto. The wide rectangle had been expertly cleaned and cut, rendering an ideal pillow of fish, angled on a mound of creamy rice. Another take on tomato, this one a zesty tapenade, was striped atop the white fillet, providing moisture and acid. This portion of this entrée — one of the bill of fare’s more expensive, and worth it — was enormous, with what we’d wager was a half-pound of protein atop a sizeable serving of risotto.

From a wide range of available beef, including two sizes of filet mignon (7 or 10 ounce) New York sirloin and rib eye, we chose the signature roasted prime rib of beef. Not a cut we often order, this outrageous hunk of meat — we, of course, went for the larger, 24-ounce “signature” — was marbled, juicy and virtually fork-tender. Retro-chic and dinosaur-sized, the bone-in rib arrived looking worthy of royalty, accompanied by fingerling potatoes, a whole baby carrot, broccolini, tomato perseille and a pile of freshly grated horseradish. This is the kind of plating that elicits stares, then gasps of awe, as it gets uncloaked from beneath a silver cover. We also selected a pair of sides, parmesan steak fries and grilled asparagus. The thick potatoes were dusted with garlic, parsley, salt, pepper and a thin sheen of grated cheese. Crisp and fully cooked within, we delighted dipping them in Max’s steak sauce, a rich, tomato-based compliment with plenty of oomph. Asparagus spears were grilled until blistered outside, bathed in a buttery blend, and presented at an agreeable al dente. A final seasonal treat, peaches, combined with raspberries in a warm, individual cobbler. The natural creaminess of those magnificent stone fruit increases geometrically when caramelized, and tart raspberries played well as a foil. Their earthy goodness was nicely enveloped in a crunchy, only slightly sweet topping, and then finished with vanilla ice cream — altogether an amazing dessert. After my encounter with that massive rib, I went a lighter route, choosing a scoop each of hazelnut and salted caramel gelatos. Both were luxurious, closing reminders that eating well in today’s Atlantic City does not translate to raiding your children’s college funds. ■ see more online @

Ladies and Gentlemen … Beatlemania Now!

An elaborate musical tribute thoroughly recreating the Fab Four’s evolution is back at Trump Plaza, and now includes the Penny Lane Horns. By Ray Schweibert • feedback@acweekly.com

J

tion to generation tends to pass it on, from grandparents to grandkids,” says Scot Arch. “All different age groups love the Beatles, which is great for us. That music just lives on and on year after year. Lots of people love the Rolling Stones, but they’re not as cross generational by any means. You know there’s that old saying ‘you can’t please all of the people all of the time’? Well, with the Beatles you almost can. It’s as close as you’re going to get.” Arch has played a meaningful role in helping to perpetuate the Beatles’ popularity among the modern-day masses, performing the part of John Lennon for the past 30 years in an incredibly entertaining production called Beatlemania Now. Arch co-created the production as a traveling

version of the Broadway hit Beatlemania, which ran from 1977-’83. The show has taken up residency for the second summer at the Theater at Trump Plaza, where it runs every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday (8pm each night) through the end of August. Band members — who also include John Hepburn as McCartney, Chris Colon as George Harrison and Eric Smith as Ringo Starr — use authentic period-appropriate instruments and wear replicas of the Fab Four’s suits on the Ed Sullivan Show, as well as five other costume changes including attire that mimics the Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road album covers. The show also features changing backdrops of graphic artwork created spe-

cifically for songs as they are performed — spanning the Sullivan show debut through the Beatles’ final year as a band, 1970 — and some is actual footage of historic events, key figures and pop culture that overlapped their entire history (1960-’70). This year’s version of Beatlemania Now has been modified to include a three-person brass section dubbed the Penny Lane Horns. They include trumpeter Bob Wagner, trombonist Gail Glass-Wagner and saxophonist Vince Lardear, who are also members of a larger ensemble called the Jump City Jazz Orchestra. “We changed the song list quite a bit because of the horn section,” says Arch. “We’re doing songs this year that we would not have done last year because there’s a lot of brass in songs like ‘Lady Madonna,’ ‘Magical Mystery Tour,’ ‘Got to Get You Into My Life.’ We still do ‘Penny Lane’ because we have a trumpet player who is just fantastic and can play that solo. It’s a very, very difficult song to play solo. I’d say there are 10 or 12 new songs this year.” In last year’s show, explains Arch, all the brass and orchestrated music heard on the Beatles’ post-1966 (their last year as a touring band) existence were replicated by Beatlemania Now on a digital keyboard. “The whole idea behind a digital keyboard, in a way, was that you don’t have to hire all these other people, you can just play it on a keyboard,” says Arch. “And a digital keyboard does fantastic job emulating other instruments. But when you play an emulated trumpet next to a real trumpet, there’s a certain excitement and power and expression that comes from a real horn that just can’t be completely reproduced digitally. “It’s also a lot of fun for us, and a lot of fun for the audience, particularly when you see some of these guys step out and do some of the solos that they do. The audience really applauds and loves it. “ One other minor adjustment from last year’s version of the show is that Arch — who plays both guitar and keyboard during the production — ditched a walrus mask he wore while on keys during the song “I Am the Walrus.” “We still play ‘I Am the Walrus’ but I don’t wear the mask anymore,” says Arch. “People got a kick out of the mask but it was hard to see through. I figured rather than make mistakes I’m taking it off. Better to play it right.” n see more online @

The Beatlemania phenomenon hit America in 1964 and it seems like generation to generation tends to pass it on, from grandparents to grandkids.

EVENT INFO

ATLANTIC CITY WEEKLY • AUGUST 1 - 7, 2013

ust as many parents did not quite know what to make of a gyrating Elvis or showboating Little Richard a decade earlier, the sounds and styles of British bands like the Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd were not always what would be perceived as welcome in many 1960s American households. But the band at the forefront of the British Invasion, the Beatles, came onto the American scene as clean-cut lads in matching suits who debuted on a show hosted by a guy every mother and father trusted, Ed Sullivan, and they sort of infiltrated uncharted territory with many older folks. It would take more than that to stay in the mainstream good graces, though, and even as the Beatles sort of shed their cleancut image and migrated into a more psychedelic sound, they remained — primarily through the incredible songwriting skills of John Lennon and Paul McCartney — a band that could endure as a cross-generational cultural phenomenon. “The Beatlemania phenomenon hit America in 1964 and it seems like genera-

Senseless Death

Sundance award winner ‘Fruitvale Station’ plus new ‘Wolverine’ film By Lori Hoffman • feedback@acweekly.com

W

ith the recent acquittal of George Zimmerman for the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida, the national release of the drama based on a similar case, Fruitvale Station, seems even more relevant. The debut feature of 26-year-old Ryan Coogler, this well acted recreation of the final day in the life of Oscar Grant III (Michael B. Jordan) earned the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. Based on a national incident that echoes the Trayvon Martin case, Oscar Grant was a 22-year-old black man from Oakland, Calif., who was killed by a transit cop at Fruitvale Station in Oakland on January 1, 2009. A big difference between the two cases is that the killing took place in front of dozens of witnesses and several of them filmed the event. What we learn in the course of Grant’s final day is that he was no saint. He had a temper that could be unleashed at any moment, he spent time in jail (seen in flashback), he sometimes sold weed for extra cash, he loved his Mom (Oscar winner Octavia Spencer) and he was having relationship problems with his girlfriend Sophina (Melonie Diaz). However, despite their personal problems, the couple is devoted to their daughter Tatiana (Ariana Neal). This day in the life, shot on a small budget and often with hand-held cameras, is quite ordinary but that’s the point. Injustice can strike at any moment, especially with the volatile elements of a New Year’s night, cops on high alert because of the holiday and the panic that ensues when a fight starts on a subway train. The real footage is shown in the movie and it suggests that the cops were overly aggressive, and that the officer who shot Grant was surprised when he heard the gun shot. We are told in the end credits that the officer thought he had grabbed his Taser, and was eventually convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

The performance by Jordan is authentic and convincing, and helps us stay engaged in a film that wants to be mundane until its explosive finale. This impressive debut makes me want to see more from writer-director Coogler.

Fruitvale Station Written & directed by Ryan Coogler • Rated R

Asian Spin for ‘The Wolverine’ Perhaps I’m jaded from all the action movies this summer, good and bad, but despite one tremendous action sequence on top of a bullet train, The Wolverine’s Japanese adventure did not impress me. I enjoyed the initial premise, that Logan (Hugh Jackman), was a prisoner of war in Japan when the city was hit by America’s atomic bomb in 1945 and that he saved a Japanese soldier who showed him mercy. However, when it turns out that this solider, Yashida (Haruhiko Yamanouch), went on to become a super wealthy man who wants to steal the Wolverine’s immortality, the rest of the story is pretty forgettable. At one point, with a giant metal suit controlled by Yashida battling Wolverine, the movie felt like outtakes from Pacific Rim. With a story that fails to engage, the action sequences don’t feel that special. However, do stay in your seats as the end credits roll for a preview of the next X-Men movie. That does look interesting. ■

‘Magique’ stars Kevin & Caruso have gone from cruise ships to Miami to Reno before docking for a run at Tropicana By Lori Hoffman • feedback@acweekly.com

B

orn and raised in Reno, Nevada, Kevin Jeffrey met Lord Caruso there, thus beginning a 22-year partnership that has included 18 years with Carnival Cruise Lines, 10 years in Miami Beach, a stint in Reno and now a stay at Tropicana for their illusion-variety show Magique. The show might be filled with classic old school illusions like levitation, swords through a box, and the amazing Houdiniinvented trick Metamorphosis, but it has a modern, edgier vibe, not to mention a troupe of excellent dancers/showgirls whose contributions give a sense of pageantry to the proceedings. Kevin & Caruso are from the new generation of illusionists, bright, fresh and full of fun. Kevin Jeffery gave me the scoop on how this partnership came together. He met the D.C.-born Caruso, “when we were teenagers in Reno. We started street performing together. We got a few lucky breaks, put in a lot of hard work and here we are.” While they are now on tour on dry land, they still are involved with Carnival Cruises. Explains Jeffrey, “We produce all their big magic shows. We just started this tour. We were in Reno before and now here. We grew up with all the casino shows in Reno and Vegas. The whole element of razzmatazz and the costumes and the [rocking] soundtrack that was always the most important part of the show. A lot of magic shows tend to look the same with the guy in the tuxedo, and we just didn’t want to look like that. “Some of our [illusions] might be standards but what we do with it brings it up to date, especially with the music and special effects and the way we transition [between illusions]. We don’t like a whole lot of talking. We want it to be seamless. We

was important to put in a few little sparkles of personality.” The show is staged and directed by Mistinguett, a show runner with deep roots in Atlantic City. “We got lucky. Mistinguett has been around here for years. She and Greg Thompson used to produce shows. She is one of the industry’s best as far as creativity working with dancers and showgirls. When Greg Thompson retired we asked her if she would freelance with us, and she has worked with us on six or seven of our shows.” ■

‘Magique’: A Review

‘We don’t like a whole lot of talking. We want it to be seamless.’ understand that people’s reference point for entertainment now is 30-second YouTube videos and sound bites, and to sit still for an hour is getting harder and harder.” Jeffrey also realizes that the small moments in magic are part of the allure, the sleight of hand, so he does a card trick, a bit with newspapers and water and with two pieces of paper, one black and one yel-

low. “It’s important to engage the audience in a way that lets them understand that we haven’t forgotten where it all came from. That [paper trick] was one of the first I ever learned to do. People want to see a performer they can talk to on and off stage, especially now when entertainment is based on reality shows and personalities. As much as I like the big stuff, I always thought it

I’ve been covering shows in Atlantic City for a long time and can sometimes feel a bit jaded, as in, “Not another magic show — really?” Kevin Jeffrey and Lord Caruso shook that blasé mindset right out of me with a show that found just the right balance of old school illusions blended with a bright, modern production. Kevin & Caruso are funny and talented and bring a high energy rock ’n’ roll twist to classic illusions like the sword box, climbing through a moving fan and the Houdini-invented Metamorphosis, with Caruso being locked up in a clear box and when the trick is over someone else is locked up. There is also a nice slice of humor, a dash of sleight of hand and audience participation. The dancers/showgirls are really good and help bring the production together. And, at a brisk 65 minutes, you won’t have time to get antsy. This is a great show for families and a terrific new way to “DO AC.” — Lori Hoffman see more online @
