Air Show Exceeds Again H By Pinky Kravitz

OW DID THE SEVENTH ANNUAL ATLANTIC City Air Show — “Thunder Over The Boardwalk” — go from an event that drew 150,000 people in 2003 to one that brought 750,000 people to the beach and Boardwalk to see the 2009 show? Each ensuing year brought more people and a better show. How did it happen? Those who have been responsible for the success of this event, which brought the greatest number of people to ever witness a show in Atlantic City’s history, thought outside the box. Those involved did not do the same thing each year. They realized that they had to have more attractions and provide for the welfare of those who came from far and near to see the magnificent performances of some of our military’s finest aircrafts, pilots and service personnel as well as highly reputed civilian aerobatic exhibitions. They didn’t just sit back and say, “Wow! We had a record-breaking event so let’s just bring it all back again next year.” They are already at work planning to expand next year’s show. The eighth annual Atlantic City Air Show will be bigger and better, as it will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the first air show in Atlantic City, which took place in 1910. Those involved with the planning of the event for next year are already contemplating how they can pay tribute to those who flew 100 years ago, not from an airport, but from the beach of Atlantic City, to put on their exhibitions over the ocean and then back to land on the beach. I would like to take this opportunity to commend all those involved in any facet of making the show the success it was this year. There was another record set that has received little attention. There were 187 children lost and reunited with their parents and grandparents by the security forces and observant civilians. Once again, the police department reported there were no major criminal incidents for the third consecutive year. The success of this event showed what Atlantic City can do if all of the city, county and state governments, civic organizations and volunteers work together for a common purpose. Everyone involved, give yourselves a pat on the back, you deserve it.

Bigger and Better?

How can the show be bigger and better next year? Have more parking spaces. Next year, there will be room for at least 1,000 cars at Bader Field. This columnist’s been informed that there will be parking there with shuttle buses to the beach and Boardwalk. We also must continue to have the committee and the community ”think outside box!” Let’s really make it a two-day show. Tuesday is already a practice day, and this year there were more people than ever on the beach to watch the pre-event flights. To entice more to come to Atlantic City on Tuesday and stay overnight or come back on Wednesday, let’s have a major free beach concert Tuesday evening with a fireworks display afterwards, from a barge in the ocean. Some of you may remember when we had the Beach

Boys perform a concert in 1983 that drew over 300,000 people to the beach, and over 200 boats in the ocean. Just think about it — a practice session of the Air Show ending at 3:30pm, followed at 7pm with a concert and a fantastic fireworks display at 9pm. The next day, Wednesday, we look for close to one million people to come and enjoy the Atlantic City Air Show. This too should be followed by a free beach concert at 7pm to keep many of those people on the beach, in the city and not on the highways leaving town. Could this happen? It could and it should. Money for the concerts could come from the $20 million that the Atlantic City Convention and Visitor’s Authority is trying to raise to promote Atlantic City. What better way to promote Atlantic City than to have two full exciting days of air shows, concerts and a fireworks display? What do you think? (See video from the Air Show at

A.C. Top Boardwalk in America

According to a news release from the Atlantic City Convention & Visitors Authority (ACCVA), the Boardwalk in Atlantic City — the great granddaddy of all boardwalks dating from 1870 — is at the top of the Top 10 List of American Boardwalks according to Earlier this year, the same site listed Atlantic City as one of the top golf destinations in the United States. The well-respected travel authority notes that our Boardwalk, “for the majority of the 20th century it served as a stage for the latest inventions and oddities.” In it also makes note of the Boardwalk’s premiere summer event, the Atlantic City Air Show. The Atlantic City Boardwalk — always capitalized, because it is a legal street — began as a temporary structure to keep sand out of the hotels. Today it is a vibrant assemblage of shops, casinos, restaurants and attractions, and provides access to the city’s vast beach, ocean and beach bars. Jeff Vasser, president of the ACCVA, said “When you read the narrative, you can see that the editors put a lot of thought and reasoning into their picks. We’re proud of our Boardwalk, its history and all it has to offer today and we’re pleased to see our name at the top of a prestigious and deserving list.” Friends of the Neustadter family are particularly proud of the recognition being given to Scott Neustadter, whose love life provided the setting for the hit motion picture, (500) Days of Summer, which not only received three stars out of four from most reviewers, but it’s been in the Top 10 grossing films in the nation. n

Multi-talented Mock Plays A.C.

Raised in coastal Connecticut, John Mock is a lifelong musician, composer and arranger whose profession took him to Nashville, where he has worked with some of the biggest names in the recording industry. Several years ago he got interested in maritime photography, and earlier this year set out on tour where he combines his musical compositions with photographs he took of coastal scenes. Mock has stopped at various performing-arts centers and maritime museums on the East Coast, and on Tuesday, Sept. 1, will visit the Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not my first tour, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my first tour doing just my music,â&#x20AC;? says Mock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m touring with other people doing their music in large concert halls, and while thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rewarding experience, doing your own music in front of a few dozen people in small venues is much more satisfying for me.â&#x20AC;? Mock uses his photography as a backdrop for his songs, which he performs as a soloist while alternating on guitar, concertina and tin whistle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a musician all my life, but I only got into photography when I was about 30 and took a trip to Ireland,â&#x20AC;? says Mock, 49. The show starts at 7pm. Tickets are $35. Call 449-1360 or visit for more information. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ray Schweibert

Q: How was the show? Dennis Painter Port Republic, N.J. A: It was better than ever. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to all of them. I like the helicopters and the Thunderbirds.

Chondrea Richard Pleasantville, N.J. A: It was a lot of fun and a lot of action. This was my first time. I liked the Coast Guard rescue [segment].

Tina Brown Absecon, N.J. A: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great every time. I have been several times. I really liked the search and rescue for some reason.

ES P I T E S O M E M E N A C I N G C L O U D S T H AT seemed ready to burst at any second last Friday night, the ample crowd held its ground while the Rocco Brothers set up their sound system and instruments under one of two circus-style tents. It was business as usual at what is almost literally the last of the classic shore bars, Maynard’s Café, located on the bay side of Margate. And as the Roccos launched into Sinatra’s “Summer Wind,” the gathering grew steadily as the rain clouds began to disperse. Activity teemed indoors, where two pool tables were in full swing, and outdoors, where the live music played in what’s been dubbed “Big Al’s Starlite Garden,” and it felt — for those old enough to remember — like Amherst Avenue and other bayfront settings once felt in southern New Jersey back in the 1970s and ’80s. “Ever since I was old enough to drink I’ve been coming here,” says Joe Shafer, the Rocco Brothers’ bass player, a retired, 27-year member of the Atlantic City Police Department, and a former Ventnor City commissioner. “One thing about [owner] Steve Troiano, like his dad Al, when other places stopped playing live music they always kept it going here.” Al Troiano, who passed away in 2003 and was affectionately known as the “Mayor of Margate,” not only knew how to give the masses what they wanted in terms of good food and entertainment at reasonable prices, he was also a generous contributor to the community. Al Troiano bought Maynard’s in 1966 (from its original owner, professional boxer Billy Maynard), and Steve Troiano continued to run it exactly as his father had — as a humanitarian and friend of the workingman. There are several benefits on tap throughout the late summer and fall, among them the Halfway to St. Paddy’s Day fundraiser on Sept. 11, the Surf for a Cause on Sept. 12, and the Christina Rush Foundation fundraiser on Sept. 19. “We do so many benefits, sometimes I forget what some of them are for,” says Steve Troiano. “But if it’s for a good cause, we’re interested in helping out. And live music has always been a part of this place.” On this night, and every Friday night throughout the summer, it was the Rocco Brothers, who usually include Shafer on bass, Tom Vavrek on guitar and Bobby Mower on guitar, and perform classic hits mainly from the 1950s through the ’80s. Mower was performing another gig with the Cole Brothers this Friday, and Ken “Nick” Nicholas filled in for him at Maynard’s. The trio performs to music files created by Vavrek on a laptop that includes drums, keyboards and other instruments that give each song a richer sound. “Early on it’s more of a family crowd of mixed ages here, but if you stay till 10 o’clock your eyes will be peeled back,” says Vavrek, a professional stagehand and former “Legends in Concert” musician who played the part of The Beatles’ John Lennon. “Right after we finish, and around the time the DJ starts to play around 11pm,


Gung Ho Quentin Tarantino does WWII in his inimitable style with ‘Basterds’ By Lori Hoffman


HE MOVIE BUSINESS HAS NEVER quite been the same since that former video-clerk geek and genreloving movie maven Quentin Tarantino exploded on the scene with Reservoir Dogs. I was lucky enough to watch that birth at the Toronto Film Festival and I have been a devoted follower ever since. From Dogs to Pulp Fiction, to his screenplay for True Romance, both volumes of Kill Bill and the female empowering punch of Death Proof, I have embraced the excessive force and witty dialogue that is signature Tarantino. If you go strictly by the coming attractions, Inglourious Basterds might confound your expectations. Yes, Brad Pitt leads a group of Jewish soldiers who murder and scalp Nazis all over France. As the infamous trailer shows Pitt declaring, “Our business is killing Nazis and business is a-boomin.” However, the actual graphic Nazi-killInglourious Basterds HHHH Written & directed by Quentin Tarantino; Rated R

ing is just the first chapter to a more conventional WWII espionage thriller. After we are introduced to the Basterds, led by Lt. Aldo Raine (Pitt), we are then introduced to the arch villain, nicknamed “The Jew Killer,” Col. Hans Landa (Christoph Waltz). He is intelligent, suave, multi-lingual and he has earned his nickname. He kills Jews for career advancement more than an unwavering belief in Hitler’s “Final Solution.” The third side of this triangle plot involves Shosanna Dreyfus (Melanie Laurent), who survived the attack by Landa that killed the rest of her family. Three years later she is hiding in plain sight, as the owner of a cinema in Paris. She draws the unwanted attention of Nazi war hero Frederick Zoller (Daniel Brühl). Hilter’s propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels (Sylvester Groth) has turned Zoller’s heroism into a movie, and now the smitten Zoller decides he will woo his ladylove by asking Goebbels to have the film’s premiere at her cinema. Meanwhile the Basterds, in cahoots with a German spy/cinema star Bridget von Hammersmark (Diane Kruger) find

out that they can kill a whole mess of Nazis, including Hitler, who will be attending the premiere. Tarantino in essence presents a rollicking, wish-fulfillment revenge fantasy about getting Hitler that is presented with a graphic novel ambiance punctuated with moments of brilliant and far-fromcartoonish tension. The latter is most gloriously on display when Tarantino presents a bar rendezvous with three of the Basterds, the spy and a bunch of German soldiers. This is the moment when Tarantino presents one of his genre favorites, the “Mexican standoff.” Did I mention that this movie is often hilarious? The Nazi killing scenes are

designed to make you laugh and turn your head away cringing at the same time. In Tarantino terms, this movie is restrained; it hits us with the bloodletting and head bashing in small doses. It is the story, the development of the characters and the quality of the dialogue that makes Inglourious Basterds a wonderfully intriguing cinematic adventure. With Pitt unleashing his over-the-top comedy persona (a rich vein tapped last year by the Coen brothers in Burn After Reading), Aldo Raine and his Basterds come-off like a Tarantino-ized version of Marvel comic’s Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandoes, right down to a Nazi defector in the unit. Laurent provides the serious, emotional component as a Jewish survivor surrounded by her would-be exterminators and the most accomplished acting emanates from the urbane matter-of-fact evil presented by the amazing Waltz. Tarantino’s Basterds is a genre flick that provides both a cathartic release involving the Holocaust and laughs. The great sculptor of genre filmmaking has carved out another one-of-a-kind masterpiece. n To read more about movies and other topics covered by movie critic Lori Hoffman under her blog alias Moviejunkie, visit

Friends Forever? A By Whitney Ullman

Whitney’s Radar

Last week I spoke about how I went to Texas for an eWomen Network conference. I forgot to mention something. During one of the nights, the group had a few great surprises planned. One included a private shop at a closed-down Nordstrom just for us where we got free makeup makeovers along with free samples of perfumes and great coupons. After I did my important shopping and browsing I decided to take advantage of the makeover. I am not the best at applying makeup and I hate that there so many layers that need to be put on in order to obtain that “perfect” look. However, since, I was on vacation I decided to go for it and I chose MAC makeup because first, I love Mac, and secondly, I saw this woman who looked like she was a brilliant makeup artist so I had to have her do mine. The thing I loved about my experience was not only did the woman do the makeover, but she had me hold a mirror to my face so I could watch how she applied everything from the eye shadow to the blush. I found that there are great products like a photo-finish powder and a highlighter for the face. It’s crazy! I’m very low maintenance when it comes to doing my own hair and makeup, but it was so easy. There is a MAC Cosmetics in the Hamilton Mall and at The Pier Shops at Caesars. While you’re there ask if you can watch the application of your makeup. You will learn a lot. And definitely have them show you the proper face highlighter; it’s my favorite must-have item right now! MAC also has a MAC Pro card for professionals; makeup artists can get 40percent off all of your purchases while actresses, models or performers could get 30-percent off. Visit the MAC Web site for more information. n

S I WAS COOKING DINNER recently (yes, I cook), a thought popped into my head. I was struck by how lucky I am to have a good friend who is a chef and how she helps me throughout the year when I need her. Then it made me think about all of the different friends I have had throughout my life and I thought, “Why is it that we have so many best friends in our life and then naturally grow apart?” Think about grade school; I’m sure you had a best friend that you did everything with but then maybe in high school things changed or you grew apart. So you found a new best friend. You would write notes back and forth, double date, do the same activities, but then college came along and you wound up separating. Or maybe you still remain friends with that person during college, but then you get into serious relationships and those people become more important. So when does the turnover of friends end? My guess is never. We are destined to meet so many people at different points in our lives and we need certain people to help keep us motivated, or give us praise, or even to dote on us. However, I think we need diversity in the people we hang out with and sometimes we have to let go of the people around us who aren’t moving in the same direction. It’s hard at first, but in the end, when you decide to finally think about yourself and your needs, you will see that finding new friendships may be just what you need. One saying that has stuck in my mind ever since Omarosa from The Apprentice quoted it when she got fired (yes, I know, but it’s a great quote never the less), is: “No man is your friend. No man is your foe. But every man is your teacher.” If you think on this quote and re-evaluate your past friendships and relationships it puts things in a unique perspective. For example, although you may have been hurt by someone’s actions, you learned a lesson and now you know what to look for when making decisions about new relationships in your adulthood and as you grow. Friendship is something that is precious and if you have that one great friend in life that you can count on and that loves you unconditionally then you are very lucky. But for the majority of us it will take two to three different friends to satisfy our needs — in a strictly platonic way, c’mon people!


Plane Jane S Interview by Carole Mattessich

HORTLY BEFORE THOSE magnificent military formations started zooming past in the Air Show this month, did you happen to notice the sweet little Piper Cubs pulling banners heralding Atlantic City tourism? They belong to Barbara Tomalino, owner of Paramount Air Service, running a fleet of the “Model Ts of aviation” out of a private air strip in Cape May County. Also a civic and political leader, Tomalino talked with us about aviation and tourism. How did you get involved with the stratosphere? I grew up with it — though we don’t go quite that high. My parents started the business in 1945, after my dad served as a glider pilot in WWII. He first saw a banner airplane on vacation in Florida, and said, wow, what a great way to make a living doing what he loved. My parents started the business, with one airplane, in Cherry Hill. But southern Jersey had the beaches, so they bought out Knocky Nordheim’s business in Atlantic City and moved here fulltime. I took over in the ’80s, when I was in my 20s. Was it a sense of responsibility, or choice, that kept you on? A little of each. You know, when you grow up and every plane going by at the beach has a pilot waving at you, it

becomes a part of you. So yes, there was a sense that we should keep it in the family. But also, I viewed it as a marketing business that uses planes as a means to deliver messages. It’s such a part of the beach experience. It’s a captive audience — we reach everybody who’s there, and between Cape May Point and Sandy Hook on a summer day, that’s three million people. But the message must be conveyed in a short space. Clients are used to dealing with conventional print, so they often want to say something way too long. We focus on what’s really key, just to pique peoples’ interest, and refer them to print media for the details. On standard plane banners, letters are five feet high, and I like to keep messages to about 35 letters. If the banner’s too heavy or too long, it’s not going to fly or read well.

the “happy birthdays,” graduations, and so forth, yes, they’re fun. Years ago, we even had a “Jean Pierre, call your brother.”

Your fleet’s like “the little seaplanes that could.” We own 12 Piper Cubs, and we operate off a grass field, preferable even at standard airports because the ground, rather than the plane, takes the impact of landings. Today’s airplanes are made for speed — just the opposite of what we want. The faster we go, the less effective it is for our clients. A local restaurant, by the way, typically may stay on one or two adjacent islands, while a business like the Borgata, with whom we work very closely, runs from Cape May Point to Long I love the occasional quirky message: “Marry Beach Island. We fly from Memorial Day to about the third week in September. me, Martha!” It’s not only messages that can be unusu- Then we just pickle the airplanes, close al. Clients might initially ask for, say, up, and start getting contracts out for flashy colors, not realizing that a color next season. Soon enough, it’s spring and like red can actually seem to disappear we’re training pilots again. when the suns hits at certain angles. And sometimes clients want to fly over places It can’t be easy trailing a banner at take-off. like stadiums. But since 9/11, that’s heav- Before my dad got involved, planes did ily regulated, and traffic stops altogether take off and land with the banner attached, an hour before major events. It’s just not causing lots of wear and tear — not just to as effective as planes on the beach. As for the banner, but for the airplane, the engine.

He developed a method that basically everyone uses now. I call it the “clothesline.” Two poles, about five feet high, are set into the ground, with the banner laid out behind them and looped lightly onto the line. The pilot takes off first without a banner, then circles back. He has a boom and a hook; he dives, snatches the banner, and ascends. And as he ascends, of course, the banner comes up. At the end of that run, he just releases the banner, circles around and picks up the next. You’ve served as commissioner on New Jersey’s Commerce and Economic Growth Commission. Tourism is critical to our three-county region. I see so much more cooperation now among the various organizations, municipalities, and chambers — just what’s needed! I can remember supporting the building of a convention center in the Wildwoods, and how it was tough explaining that it’s not just an island issue, but rather benefits everyone when we bring in visitors and jobs. Vacation and travel patterns are very different now. ... When everyone plays to their particular strengths, everyone benefits. n Send Carole Mattessich your suggestions for interesting subjects for our “People” column. E-mail

Blue Öyster Cult

Cult Classic

Still touring, and a champion among bands of the baby boomers, Blue Öyster Cult plays a free outdoor show at Bally’s on Saturday

Where: Dennis Courtyard at Bally’s, Park Place and the Boardwalk, A.C. When: Saturday, Aug. 29, 5pm How Much: Free

By Ray Schweibert

Don’t fear ‘em at Bally’s


You and Buck Dharma have been with Blue Öyster Cult throughout its history — is the fire for performing still burning like it was when you first started? We like to play. It beats sitting around. Musicians never really retire, they always want to play. I mean, Sinatra was gigging into his 70s. There’s Roger Earl [of Foghat], John Kay [Steppenwolf], Ian Hunter [Mott the Hoople] and just many, many people in my age group who are not done.

Does your fan base still include many of the folks who would come out to see you play when you first began? Absolutely. We still see many of the original faces who saw us in the ’70s, and now we’re seeing their children and even a lot of kids in the audience who were made aware of us through Guitar Hero or Rock Band, or even from the ‘cowbell sketch’ on SNL [Saturday Night Live — a reference to a hilarious spoof of ‘Don’t Fear The Reaper’ that made No. 5 on SNL’s “101 Most Unforgettable Moments”]. How often do you still tour? We were off for six months when Buck busted his shoulder, which was the longest stretch we had been off in 20-something years. Now we’re doing 14 to 16 shows per month since June, then when the weather starts to get cooler the schedule will slow down a little bit because we do mostly outdoor venues. Are you working on any new material? Nothing brand new. We’re just out there playing what we hope most people want

to hear every night. We never do the same show twice in a row. There’s a lot of people who follow us around, and they know we’re always going to do something different. We try to make it fresh for them as well as for our own sanity. I’ve never understood a band that can do the same set from city to city for the entire summer.

in terms of overall talent compared to how it’s existed in the past? There have been several people in and out of the band over the years, some of whom are long gone. [Original guitarist/ keyboardist] Allen [Lanier] retired about three or four years ago, but Richie’s doing an excellent job, and the others we have with us are all exceptional, professional musicians. We have Jules Radino on I understand many of the songs you contrib- drums who, before working with us, was uted to Blue Öyster Cult were inspired by your with Popa Chubby’s blues band and is a very accomplished drummer.

INP OINTIN G T H E O RI G I N S OF the term “progressive rock” as a genre may be tough, but the distinctive sound Blue Öyster Cult created when it came onto the scene in the early 1970s might serve as a type of touchstone. The band fused a sort of psychedelic edge — driven in part by lyrics born out of band manager Sandy Pearlman’s poetry, and lead singer Eric Bloom’s love for science fiction — with the heavy metal and hard-rock sounds of the day. It sold over 14 million albums worldwide, released 16 studio and live albums, and kind of reinvented itself later by recording soundtracks to popular video games like the Rock Band and Guitar Hero series. Blue Öyster Cult has also been credited with being highly influential among many groups that came into prominence more recently. It has a vast cache of original material to its credit and has had its share of hits, including the songs “Godzilla,” “Burnin’ For You,” and the 1976 song that catapulted it to the forefront — “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper.” Bloom, who also plays rhythm guitar and keyboards, and lead guitarist Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser, are the two remaining members from the original five-man Long Island-based band that began as Soft White Underbelly (a name it would still occasional use, in lieu of Blue Öyster Cult, when booking itself into smaller venues). Its current ensemble includes guitarist/keyboardist Richie Castellano, bassist Rudy Sarzo and drummer Jules Radino. Bloom, 64, who still resides in the Long Island area where he was raised, spoke to Atlantic City Weekly by phone recently.

‘It frees me up to not feel like I have to deliver one kind of element.’


Hot Comics Dane Cook’s three-show barrage at the Taj caps off a string of stellar stand-up shows in A.C. By David J. Spatz



A U G U S T 2 7 , 2 0 0 9 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

HEN MASSIVELY POPULAR Dane Cook made the decision to mount a full-blown arena show for his summer Global Thermo Comedy Tour, he wasn’t thinking with his ego. It was, as he explains it, simply a matter of supply versus demand. “It’s certainly not something you decide on your own,” explains Cook, one of only a small handful of comedians who has sampled the rarified air of arenas. “It’s really [about] the fans and having so many people wanting to come and see you.” A decade ago, Cook was a funny but fairly ordinary comedian playing 300-seat comedy clubs. But his popularity was on the rise, due in part to his regular appearances on the Comedy Central cable channel and roles in a variety of motion pictures. As his star continued to rise, so did demand for seats in the laughing academies. Club dates that originally called for two or three shows expanded to anywhere from six to 10 sets over the course of a weekend. The next logical move was into theaters and showrooms, he adds. “So I would play [theaters] with 2,000 to 3,000 seats and find that there were [another] 1,000 people clamoring to get in,” he tells Atlantic City Weekly during a phone call en route from his home in Los Angeles to catch a flight at LAX.

His Labor Day weekend gig at Trump Taj Mahal is a perfect example of his theory of supply-side comedy. Originally scheduled to work two nights in the Taj Mahal’s 5,200-seat Etess Arena, Cook’s shows sold out so quickly and demand was so great that a third show was added to the gig. After filling theaters and small arenas on a consistent basis, the next logical move for Cook was to begin playing rooms that hold up to 20,000 people. Only a handful of comedians have been successful in bringing comedy to such large rooms. To make things even more interesting, when Cook decided to play the biggest indoor rooms, he also wanted to do it in the round by placing his stage smack in the center of the arena. Working in the round can be tricky — it’s really an art form within an art form — since the artist has to move around the stage in a way so that everyone in the room feels they’re receiving equal treatment from the entertainer. Cook feels his decision to work in the round rather than from a proscenium stage actually lends a degree of intimacy to his performance, even in a big room. Performing in the Taj Mahal’s smallish arena, he adds, is his comedy version of working “unplugged.” “It’s great to be able to go from some of these larger venues and then to be able to go into a club or a theater or [a small

room] like [the Taj],” he says. “I think it’s a real kick for the fans, too, because sometimes they like to feel like they’re up close and personal.” Big room or small, Cook’s brand of physical comedy would seem counterproductive to working a massive room, but he mitigates that with plenty of high-tech video. Large HD screens make him seem larger-than-life. “We have the [big screens] in the room, and I have four cameras rolling on me,” he says. “So if I want to do a subtle nuance or something a little more low key, my crew and camera guys know how to stay with me and make sure someone sitting in the top section still feels the energy of the room and can be connected to me.” A native of Boston, Mass., Cook, 37, can never remember a time when he didn’t want to be an entertainer. Notice that he didn’t say he wanted to simply be a comedian. “I grew up watching so many kinds of performers,” he says. “I loved Jackie Gleason, Steve Martin, Richard Pryor. I loved that they could go from movies to television to stand-up. Johnny Carson was a huge, huge influence on me. I’ve always looked at myself as more of an entertainer than strictly a stand-and-deliver, set-upand [punchline] kind of guy.” Cook began performing stand-up comedy in New York in 1994 and became a regular on the comedy club and college circuit. In the late 1990s, he began appearing in motion pictures — he’s got 15 films to his credit — and also began a long-term relationship with Comedy Central. Although some consider him an observational humorist, he also feels his ability to perform different kinds of comedy is

what keeps him sharp and helps him avoid being pigeonholed as a particular kind of comedian. “I think I’ve created a career out of adjusting,” he says. “I really have always tried to encourage myself to change and try different styles of comedy. It feels great to be at a point where I can do long-form story telling, I can do quips, I can play blue [or] I can play squeaky clean. It frees me up to not feel like I have to deliver one kind of element.” Steve Martin has been something of a career and artistic role model for Cook, but there’s one notable difference between the two wild and crazy guys. For Martin, stand-up was a means to an end. Once he became a motion-picture star, he basically gave up stand-up comedy to concentrate on his film career. Cook can’t ever see a day where he won’t be on stage in front of a live audience. “I don’t think that’s my path,” he says. “I love live performance. I don’t think there’s any greater feeling than waking up in the morning with a new idea and ... seven hours later standing on a stage and sharing it with people and getting and an immediate reaction without any kind of editing or someone looking over your shoulder and telling you [that] you can or can’t do or say that.” Although he’s reached the summit of stand-up — the only bigger venues to play are outdoor stadiums — Cook isn’t resting on his laurels. He feels he still has a lot to learn, especially in trying to strike a balance between his stand-up and film careers. “I feel like I’m still kind of a new guy in that world, so I’m learning,” he says. “It’s a learning process and I love that my fans still want to come out.” n see more online @

The Crab Trap

Address: On the Circle, Somers Point Phone: 927-7377 Hours: Lunch 11am-3pm, dinner 310pm weekdays, until 11pm weekends Details: Liquor license; major credit cards accepted

Crabulous Cuisine

The Crab Trap in Somers Point has been tempting patrons for over four decades By Frank Gabriel Lydia Parich, Jay Rutkowski and Sara Schoenfeldt.

are available. The first, their signature deviled version, is described on the bill of fare as being “our number-one seller for over 30 years!” The newer, crispy version, griddleseared Maryland style, is an all-lump meat product. Crumb-topped, it’s plated with a Chardonnay cream sauce (beurre blanc). With several dozen seafoods always available on the menu, the restaurant selectively utilizes multiple purveyors. Librizzi explains, simply, “It’s all about the quality.” A few of those highlights include sesa-

me-crusted tuna with a Thai-pepper sauce, blackened redfish topped by simmered red onions and mushrooms and honey-glazed salmon in a sweet-potato crust sided by braised spinach. A sampling of nightly additions reveals more in the way of seasonal ingredients and creativity. Like jumbo soft-shell crabs sautéed with a garlic crumb crust, chopped Jersey tomatoes and basil served over cappellini pasta. Or broiled Alaskan halibut tilted atop a white cheddar and crab



S SHE TRAVERSES THE corridors of two lengthy dining spaces during a burgeoning Sunday lunch service, patrons acknowledge and greet the Crab Trap daytime manager Danielle Librizzi. Those customers, whether local or visitors, all seemingly know her on a firstname basis. Near the bar, fronting the first of those areas, a redheaded hostess receives an enthusiastic hug from another female guest. Despite the restaurant’s big-tent capacity — with seating for close to 425 — more than a few arrivals on this muggy summer weekend patiently wait for tables outside the facility. Evidently, someone is doing a whole lot of something right here. Operated exclusively by the Wallace family since 1967, the Crab Trap has managed to maintain an iconic status among shore restaurants for dependable, diverse cuisine. Despite their obvious predilection toward the products of the sea, diners here aren’t limited in their choices. In fact, the Crab Trap is one of very few local restaurants to offer prime rib on a daily basis, slow-roasting beef in the morning hours and serving it starting at 3pm. Librizzi mentions that entrée, along with their crispy crab cakes, as being among those she frequently recommends to new arrivals. Two separate interpretations of crab cake

risotto finished with fire-roasted tomato cream sauce. But it’s a soup, their crab bisque, which Librizzi characterizes as the Crab Trap’s most notable signature item. The creamy blend is so popular that out-of-towners exiting the region will often pack coolers and ice chests with take-out portions. For those preferring outdoor accommodations, their deck, Crabby Jack’s, is open daily through Columbus Day, weather permitting, and serves a shorter version of the menu. Salads, sandwiches, soups and appetizers are offered, and facilities for boat dockage provided. According to Librizzi, the restaurant’s family-oriented nature is the real key to its unique, long-term success. “You can sense that the [ownership] are very hands-on, with no detail overlooked,” she says. Ken Wallace, son of original operator Jack, runs the daily business operation, assisted by general manager Daniel Cericola, a veteran of more than two decades, and chef Rick Kern is at the helm of the kitchen. “We have customers who are here seven days a week — they are like family,” says Librizzi. “It’s very personal and we know them by name” And judging from their behavior on this August afternoon, they also know hers as well. n E-mail Frank Gabriel at

Mystic Islands Casino


Black Horse Pike, Cardiff/EHT. 6461855. Serving veal, seafood, pasta, steaks and brick-oven pizzas.

Ashley Hemmelstein Address: 110 Mathistown Rd., Little Egg Harbor Phone: 296-4800 Web: Hours: Kitchen hours are 11am1am daily. Bar hours are 8am2am Sun.-Fri., and 8am-3am Sat. Three daily happy hours are 8am-noon, 4pm-7pm, and 10pm-closing. History: Since its founding in 1964, the Mystic Islands Casino has been questioned by customers about its “casino” mantra, though there is neither a slot machine nor a gaming table to be found. The origin behind “casino” comes from the word casa, which is Italian for house. Over more recent years it has taken on the meaning of a “gambling establishment,” but the Mystic Islands Casino strives for a more casual feel, where one could eat, have a drink, and maybe follow with a game of pool afterwards. Owned by the Hemmelstein family since 1971, they have kept the theme alive for 45 years. What to Know: The menu includes a variety of Italian, American and seafood items. Daily specials and a children’s items are also available, and a special bar menu is offered during the three daily happy hours. There is also an extensive dessert menu. Owner’s Tip: “Our wings and burgers are the best, and are among our biggest sellers,” says Gary Hemmelstein. “They’re fantastic.” — Chris Torres English Creek Restaurant

‘Rock the Bells’ Hits HOB Slaughterhouse will appear at the hip-hop concert on Sunday By Raymond Tyler


N C E U P O N A T I M E , hip-hop had successfully replaced Motown as “The Sound of Young America.” Our parents didn’t understand it, but we used it to party, we used it to tell our stories, we sharpened hiphop music until it was sophisticated and dangerous. Once upon a time, hiphop music was the voice of the people. Then hip-hop went mainstream. Today, most hip-hop music played on the radio lacks creativity and, in my opinion, is very silly compared to the sounds I grew up with. However, hip-hop as a whole, isn’t in the toilet. There still are underground artists who have been the backbone of the culture, and have kept fans, like myself, on the edge of our seats ever

since the the sun set on hip-hop’s golden age. This Sunday, Aug. 30, the “Rock the Bells” show at the House of Blues at Showboat in Atlantic City, pays tribute to underground artists who have record deals, but still fly well below the mainstream radar. Talib Kweli, Slum Village, Super Natural, and the individuals that make up Slaughterhouse have kept the art form going for people who enjoy great lyrics and mature music. These artists rap about more important things than just cars and cash. I spoke with members of the hiphop supergroup Slaughterhouse, which includes Crooked I, Joe Budden, Royce Da 5-9 and Joell Ortiz. (See full interview at

Seaview Golf Club

Address: 401 South New York Rd., Galloway Township Phone: 748-7680 On the Web: Details: Seaview offers 36 holes of championship-caliber golf on two courses encompassing 670 acres of pinelands — the Bay Course and the Pines Course. The Bay Course opened in 1914 and was designed by course architect Donald Ross. It is more of a Scottish links design, according to Seaview director of golf Stephen Havrilla, with wide-open spaces and winding fairways. The Pines Course opened as a nine-hole addition in 1926 and was expanded to 18 holes in 1957. It was designed by William Flynn and Howard Toomy and is more of a parkland-style course, with trees lining the fairways. Seaview’s Bay Course was home to the Shoprite LPGA Classic for most of that tournament’s 21-year history until it ended in 2006. It was also the location where Sam Snead won the first of his three PGA Championships in 1942. Seaview had been under the management of the Marriott hotel chain since 1987. In May 2009, Dolce Hotel and Resorts, which owns 17 properties in the United States and six in Europe, acquired it and hired the Scottsdale, Arizona-based Troon Golf Management company to run its golf operations. Seaview offers a “Golf Pass Program” that allows unlimited access to both courses with all fees included, preferred guest rates, com-

Truex, who grew up in Cumberland County, N.J., founded and hosts the tournament, which will be attended by fellow NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip and other celebrities.

AMUOGNUTSHT 02 07 ,, 22 00 00 89 // AA CC W W Ee Ee Kk Ll Yy .. CC O OM M

Normally, we’d be talking about the city’s countdown to its Labor Day celebration and events, such as the Mr. and Miss Fall Guy competition, at this time in the season. But since Labor Day falls on Sept. 7 this year, beachgoers and visitors get an extra week on the sand and boards, providing the waves and riptides die downl. (Just for the record, Memorial Day was also early this year, but the weather didn’t

cooperate.) This weekend, for example, you can catch the Ocean City Pops presenting its popular “Our Three Tenors” series or Steven Condy and Robin Massie presenting a free opera concert at the Ocean City Tabernacle (both Sunday, Aug. 30). But really, next week is your last chance to enjoy many of the special extras and street fairs the city puts on for summer. Merchants on Asbury Avenue, for example, have street fairs Tuesday through

Thursday and Thursday also represents the last Family Night on the Boardwalk. After Labor Day, the city’s beach walks, the Ocean City Library’s Thursday lecture series (this week a sing-along) and the city’s family film nights all go on hiatus until next season. So we suggest you take full advantage of this extra week, before we all have to acknowledge that Labor Day, late though it may be, always comes. — Mike Pritchard

FRIDAYS TO AUG. 28 Fireworks on the Beach Beach at Pine Avenue, Wildwood.


Free concerts on the Atlantic City Boardwalk have become quite a staple over the last few years. The Atlantic City Free Public Library sponsored another series of free concerts in its international night series on Wednesdays at Kennedy Plaza and Bally’s has turned the plaza in front of the Dennis Hotel into a major spot for free performances with Blue Oyster Cult playing Saturday. But the concert series that started it all, The Chicken Bone Beach concert series, offers up one final concert for the summer Thursday (Aug. 27) when Kennedy Plaza gets taken over by the N.Y.P.D. Well, 18 of then anyway, as New York’s Finest Jazz Ensemble makes an appearance. The band is comprised of 18 New York cops, all members of the city’ full police band. Though the band was first formed in 1901 and is usually at the front of most New York City parades, the band has been touring internationally for the last several years. That’s led to the offshoot of ensembles with a steel drum and percussion ensemble joining the jazz ensemble. But it was the success of the Chicken Bone Beach series that lured the jazz ensemble to Atlantic City. The police band contacted the concert organizers and arranged to play an extra show for the season. “We’re just thrilled to have them,” says Henrietta Shelton, organizer of the series. “It was just such a nice surprise that they wanted to play for us and it gives us a chance to put on one more concert for the year.” And for fans of tunes on the boards, especially free tunes, it’s just one more chance to get your jazz on before Labor Day. — Mike Pritchard

Less Hits, More Filling Jim Breuer: Razor sharp like never before













Jim Breuer Where: Borgata Music Box, Atlantic City When: Saturday, Aug. 29, 9pm How Much: Sold Out

By Ed Condran



A U G U S T 2 7 , 2 0 0 9 / A C W E E K LY. C O M

ET READY FOR THE ‘NEW Breu,’ when Jim Breuer performs Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Borgata. The Saturday Night Live alum, best known for his “Goatboy” bit and playing a stoner in the cult film Half Baked, has reinvented himself. Breuer has metamorphosed over the last year. The charismatic comic-actor has gone from outrageous and obscene to in control and clean. “People that come out are so surprised that I don’t’ swear onstage anymore,” Breuer says while calling from his Hunderton County, N.J. home. “They walk out the door and they say, ‘He didn’t curse once!’ I don’t need to curse to crush a room.” What Breuer has found to be truly superfluous as a comic is marijuana. Breuer indulged in pot over recent years but he junked the drug in 2007. “That [marijuana] dragged me in the mud,” Breuer says. “Once I stopped the pot, I rediscovered something. I was pure onstage and really funny. I had an addiction. I had to stop it. My wife is so thankful I stopped and so am I since I’m much sharper without it. I’ve surprised myself by how on top of things I am. I’m not in a haze anymore. I finally discovered that I wasn’t doing myself any favors by living the lifestyle I was living. I had no idea back when I was [high] that it would be better to be like this [lucid]. It’s amazing to feel razor sharp.” Breuer didn’t just change his lifestyle, he took a career risk by jettisoning his party image, which appealed to the frat crowd, in favor of becoming a familyoriented comic. However, the father of three pre-pubescent girls, believes that his audience has grown up with him. “The people that came out to see me in their 20s are now older and have kids so they can relate,” says Breuer. “They love it. They come out and laugh and now they bring their parents. Since I’ve changed, my fan base has expanded. Before I might have had people up to 35 [years of age] come to the show, but now I have people from 18 to 55 coming out. I get families because they all can connect with what I’m talking about.” Breuer, 41, riffs on what it’s like to be married with young children and having octogenarian parents. “I have a lot of material because of the

‘I don’t need to curse to crush a room.’

space that I’m in,” says Breuer. “I have a lot to talk about. People are going to be surprised. They’ll see that I can be clean and still be funny.” Breuer is looking forward to his Atlantic City gig, partly due to its proximity to his favorite market, which is Philadelphia. “There is no other place like Philly,” says Breuer. “Philly is by far the best crowd and I’m not just saying that. They blow everybody else away.” Expect Breuer to tell a bunch of stories since he has a plethora of entertaining tales at his disposal. “I have a lot of anecdotes I probably shouldn’t tell, but what the hell?” says Breuer. “I’ve had so many things happen to me during my career and offstage. A lot of funny things have happened to me professionally and with my family.” Breuer, who looks perpetually stoned, had a hilarious brush with Jack Nicholson during his Saturday Night Live days. “Some people are born with big noses,” says Breuer. “Some people are born with moles on their face. I look stoned all the time. When I was on an elevator with Jack Nicholson he turned to me, lifted up his shades and said, ‘You look the way I feel.’ He basically told me he was stoned. I’ve lived with this my whole life. In junior high I was sent to the nurse’s office and I didn’t know why. My teacher sent me there twice threatening me that if I came to class in that condition he was going to ask for a urine sample and I thought it was because I was being silly. I had no clue what pot was in eighth grade.” Even though Breuer is on the straight and narrow, his shows can still be out-of-control hilarious. It’s just that his performances are deeper than they’ve ever been before. “I have it in me to be deep,” says Breuer. “I’ve just tapped into something and why not go further with it? I like this because I’m challenging myself and I’m having the biggest blast of my career with it. I think it’s normal for a performer to evolve. I guess some guys don’t change, but I was definitely ready for a change. It’ll be interesting to see what I try to do next. I’m ready for more comedic heavy lifting as I get older. You’ll never see me doing the same thing.” Breuer is always a ball of energy when he hits the stage, but is fairly laid-back when he relaxes post-show. “I just put it all out there when I perform,” says Breuer. “I just attack and have fun.” n see more online @


Can You Tell Me Where Trini Is? O By Jerry Blavat

NCE AGAIN, GREETINGS AND salutations. And whether you realize it or not, next weekend is the big Labor Day celebration. We at Memories will be going nonstop for the entire weekend, Friday, Saturday, and on Sunday night, it will be a tribute to Dion with the Bronx Wanderers, who have that doowop sound that you love so much. And this weekend, before heading on down to Memories, come join me Saturday, Aug. 29, from 3-8pm for our big dance party on the beach to celebrate Cape May’s 400th anniversary with the Mayor of Cape May and lots of fabulous activities all day. We’ll be at Beach Avenue and Gurney Street, half a block west of the Convention Hall. For more info, call 8849565. Now, let’s ask the Geator.

Yes, I had Trini on my show several times. At the time he was recording for Sinatra’s Reprise label, and Mo Ostin, who originally was one of Frank’s lawyers and became the head of Reprise, called me on behalf of Frank to see if I could put Trini on my TV show. I said no problem. The song he did was a hit by Peter, Paul, and Mary, “If I Had a Hammer,” which Trini redid with a Latin feel. He was a terrific guy, very gracious, and also very quiet. Today Trini lives in Palm Springs and continues to perform and do benefits. Watch for him hosting an upcoming special on PBS called Latin Music Legends. [Editor’s note: Trini Lopez’s recently scheduled show at the Atlantic City Hilton was cancelled.]
