the Albany Avenue corridor approaching the city from the west. Improvements include expanded crossing of the Inland Thoroughfare, grade separating the intersection with West End avenue, widening the road from four to six lanes to Exit 2 and expanding Exit 2. These improvements include the following elements: 1. Building a new crossing of the Inside Thoroughfare at a location between North Hartford and North Chelsea avenues as a replacement fixed-span bridge, a new complementary fixed-span or drawbridge, a tunnel or some combination of these). 2. Creating a one-way pair of crossings, with traffic entering the island on Albany Avenue Bridge and leaving via a new crossing. The new crossing would connect to Bader Field and then rejoin Albany Avenue, either before or at West End Avenue. The paired system would improve circulation and provide additional capacity for emergency evacuation. 3. Converting the existing Albany Avenue section from West End to Pacific avenues from a two-way operation to one-way operation in south bound direction with three travel lanes. 4. Provide grade separation of West End at Albany to facilitate the movement of traffic to Chelsea Heights, Ventnor and points west on Absecon Island, proceeding south into Atlantic City and turning east into Bader Field. 5. Add one lane in each direction from West End to Exit 2: this lane addition would continue the lane capacity addition provided by one-way pair Inside Thoroughfare crossings and will likely require additional bridge modification along structures

Boardwalk Hall’s Organ Update Boardwalk Hall’s Adrian Phillips Ballroom’s organ now has its relay work completed and the main blower in now running. Since the organ has been sitting for 10 years, it will no doubt be stiff and sluggish when first turned on. The first sounds will probably be ciphers. But, as with any well-built instrument, as its mechanisms are exercised they will begin to loosen up and work smoothly. The interest level among the staff at Boardwalk Hall and the Convention Center continues to increase as the necessary projects are moved along, and they anticipate hearing the sound of the pipe. There is less to report on the Midmer-Losh organ — the world’s largest organ and the pride of Atlantic City and the organ world. The rate of progress rises and falls, accompanied by a feeling of excitement and impatience, but with completed tasks to look back on, these magnificent instruments provide positive feelings to those of us who love them. n

Remembering the Playboy

they were headier days for Atlantic City back in the early ’80s, much more about casinos opening and what the resort would become rather than what would survive. And perhaps the biggest splash was made by the Playboy Casino, complete with Playboy bunnies and all the touches of hugh hefner’s empire. though it would be short-lived, becoming the Atlantis in 1984, it made an impact on early A.C. and its employees. So much of an impact that a gala reunion is planned at a private mansion in Avalon oct. 2-4 to celebrate the glory days. “everyone who worked there just had a wonderful experience,” says Renay Rogers, an organizer of the event and a former bunny at the casino. “And every time I ran into somebody who worked there, we would just go on and on sharing stories … so about a year ago we put together a reunion committee and the response was immediate.” more than 150 people are already expected to attend. Rogers is quick to point out that the reunion isn’t just for bunnies, but everyone who worked at the casino. “that’s what we wanted the most,” she says. “We wanted it to include everyone who ever worked there.” the result will be a gala three-day celebration that includes a Friday kickoff party.

Avalon Elegance

A chic new restaurant and lounge warrants the jaunt down to Cape May County By Ray Schweibert


E HAVE ALL BEEN ON THE SENDING OR receiving end of the statement, “I can’t believe this is the same place,” and it’s one that’s been heard profusely since the dazzling Fuze Restaurant & Mirage Lounge opened in Avalon in May. Twin brothers Anthony and Steve Cozzi — both veterans of the restaurant and culinary industry — took their plans for transformation of the former Mirage Hotel to the extreme. A longtime fixture on the island that’s “cooler by a mile,” the Mirage was sort of stuck in another era and the Cozzis’ conversion of it included a pristine bar area with a stone façade and black-granite top, a slightly elevated main dining room with hardwood floors, a wall of candles adjacent to a spiraling staircase leading up to two large banquet rooms, and a small piano-equipped stage area where live music is heard on weekends. The overhaul took the better part of six months to complete. It’s a slight hike down the parkway from the A.C. area, but well worth the trip. “[The Mirage] was all peach and turquoise, there were palm trees everywhere — it sort of looked like South Beach [Florida] in the ’80s,” says Phyllis Childs, who was celebrating her birthday while dining with Matt Copeland on a recent Saturday night. “Now it has much more of an ‘occasion’ kind of feel. It seems reminiscent of an upscale New York City restaurant without being cold and stark. It has a warm, inviting feel to it. I really love it — the food and atmosphere are wonderful.” “There’s not too many of these type of establishments around anymore, where you can enjoy fine dining with soothing music,” adds Copeland. Part of the purpose for the couple’s visit was to see jazz singer/songwriter Pauline Bennick, who performs at Fuze every Saturday evening starting at 7pm. Bennick is accompanied by jazz guitarist Frank Coffman, and together they perform jazz standards and mellow modern classics. Fuze was nearly filled to capacity on this Saturday night, and their set list included “In My Life” by the Beatles, “I’ve Got the World on a String” and “Old Devil Moon” by Frank Sinatra, “Pennies From Heaven” by Billie Holiday, and a Bossa Nova [modern

Latin jazz] standard called “One Note Somba” they played as a special tribute to Childs’ birthday. “Steve and Anthony have done such a wonderful job with this place,” says Bennick, who relocated to southern New Jersey from upstate New York. “It’s such a wonderful place to play. The acoustics are perfect and the people really seem to enjoy our performances. “This winter they plan to have romantic dancing here [in the main dining area],” adds Bennick, who has produced two CDs ( “They’ll bring in soft sofas, move the tables and chairs to the side, and have beautiful, slow music that you can dance to. I think it would be a great idea to try during the sort of lull all shore towns go through in winter.” General manager Anthony Cozzi, a former employee of The Palm in Atlantic City, graciously chats with diners and occasionally recommends wine pairings with meals from Fuze’s extensive selection. There are also some exceptional specialty cocktails at Fuze, and one that Cozzi recommends called the Bloody Mary Infusion is made from a blend of habanero peppers, carrots, celery, onions and vodka. “It’s like a spicy, health-food cocktail,” he says. Other specialty drinks include the Cucumber Mojito, the Dirty Pickle Martini, the Mango Margarita, the Fuze Spiced Chai Martini and the Fuze Old Fashion. Steve Cozzi is Fuze’s head chef. The Culinary Institute of America of New York graduate was formerly a chef for Red Square in The Quarter at Tropicana, Stephen Starr’s Continental at The Pier Shops at Caesars, and Marie Nicole’s in Wildwood Crest. Fuze has a $24.75 “prixfixe” menu daily from 5-6pm, which offers the choice between four entrees, soup or salad and dessert. n

Three Generations of Pointers W













The Pointer Sisters Where: Bally’s Atlantic City When: Saturday, Sept. 26, 9pm. How Much: Tickets are $35, $50 & $75

By David J. Spatz

HEN THE POINTER SISTERS first began joining voices on something other than the gospel music on which they were raised, they only had one long-range goal. “I just wanted to keep it going forever,” Anita Pointer says. “I knew I didn’t ever want to stop because what we had made us feel so good, and made so many other people feel good, that there was no reason for us to stop.” Today, Pointer can’t believe four decades have passed since the trio — which was briefly a quartet in the early 1970s — first began performing their eclectic fusion of pop, jazz, rhythm and blues and country. “I never thought we’d be doing this at this age,” Pointer, 61, says with a laugh during a recent phone call from her California home. “I really didn’t think that we would still be going as strong as we are.” There’s an unmistakable sound of youthful enthusiasm in Pointer’s voice, which she attributes to the fact that a third generation of Pointer recently joined the group, replacing someone from the second generation. For the past five years, Ruth Pointer’s daughter, Issa Pointer, has been joining her mother and aunt on stage to round out the trio. But Issa Pointer gave birth to a baby in July, and now

Ruth Pointer’s granddaughter, Sadako Pointer, a 24-year-old singer and model, is the newest member of the group and will join her grandmother and great-aunt when they perform at Bally’s Atlantic City on Saturday. “Being on stage [with Sadako] has added such a youthful spark to the group that it makes me feel young, not old,”

‘I never thought we’d be doing this at this age. I really didn’t think that we would still be going as strong as we are.’ Pointer, who’s also a grandmother, adds. “She’s young, she’s beautiful, she’s a great singer and dancer and she’s even been my trainer. She’s been teaching me all kinds of moves.” By the time Sadako Pointer was born in 1985, The Pointer Sisters had already sold millions of albums and singles around the world and had won three Grammy Awards. Their debut single, “Yes We Can Can,” was an instant hit when it was released in 1973, and the sisters followed it with an unbroken string of Top 10 hits, including “Fire,” “I’m So

Excited,” “He’s So Shy,” “Slow Hand,” “Jump (For My Love),” “Automatic,” “Neutron Dance” and more. There are other members of the Pointer family getting ready to make their move in the music world, Anita Pointer adds. Most notably, Ruth Pointer’s son Malik Pointer has his own band, Macdracula, which works mostly in the Los Angeles area. Malik Pointer recently launched a Pointers reality show on his Facebook page (search for “The Flipside: Pointer’s Reality Television Series,” where Malik and other family members recount what it was like growing up on “the periphery of The Pointer Sisters celebrity”). Other second and third generation Pointers are beginning to make contributions to the business, Anita says. “We’re going to keep it going as long as we can,” says Anita. “There’s a lot of us.” She definitely hears some unmistakable Pointer Sisters influence in the music of the next generation, especially from Malik, who recently did a new arrangement to “I’m So Excited.” “They just recorded it, and it sounds amazing because he did it in a totally different way than [the original recording],” she says. Malik Pointer not only seeks advice from his mother and his aunt, but he also enjoys working with them. Ruth and Anita Pointer have already been in a stu-

dio recording tracks with Malik. “It’s just incredible watching him perform and hearing what he’s writing,” she says. “I can’t wait for the world to hear his music.” She knows the next generations of Pointers will find it more of a challenge to break into the music business because the industry has changed dramatically since she and her sisters began their careers in the late 1960s. But, thanks to the global reach of the Internet, it’s also easier for new artists to get their material into the hands of the public than it was for the Pointers to be heard a generation ago. Anita Pointer isn’t well versed on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace, but she has seen what it’s done to expose Malik Pointer’s music to the masses. “It’s so much harder today for [an artist] to break out,” she says, “but it’s also so much easier for them [to be seen and heard].” n

Rollin’ into October O By Jerry Blavat

NCE AGAIN, GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS. Well, here it is, the end of September, and we just roll on into October, which means the Geator will be back in town for the Baby Boomers Rock & Roll Revival at La Costa Lounge on Oct. 3, and then again on a Saturday afternoon, Oct. 10, from 2-4 pm with my buddy Jimmy Bennett. Halloween is right around the corner, and before you blink an eye the holidays will be fast upon us. So I want to remind you about our gala New Year’s Eve party at the Taj

theme. But the arranger and conductor was Nelson Riddle. They recorded it for his Strangers in the Night album in 1966. It marked the beginning of Frank’s comeback in 1966, but it was the last album he and Riddle recorded together.

Bobby [Womack], as you know, was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame this year.

The song is called “Harry Hippie” and the female singer was Altrina Grayson. She was one of Bobby’s backup singers and a fantastic performer who unfortunately never really became well known to the public. Bobby, as you know, was inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame this year.

On your XPN show about Bobby Womack you played a great duet that I heard for the first time. It went, “I like to help a man who’s down, but I can’t help a man when he’s sleeping on the ground.” What is the name of the song and who was the woman he was singing with? – Donnie Marks

Really enjoyed your end-of-summer show on XPN. One Mahal — from soup to nuts, dancing and partying all question: Did you write the lyrics to “Back to School” or did night long. Last year it was sold out well in advance, you make them up as you sang it? – Marian so I suggest you give the Taj a call at 449-5150 to get more info. And when you cats and chicks are in town, The lyrics were written by Kal Mann and Dave join me when we go “Live at 5” every Wednesday Appel. I added the cowbell (which I borrowed from DJ from the Philly Park Casino and every Friday from Georgie Woods). n Chickie’s & Pete’s on the Boulevard. Then, of course, now that fall’s here, we’re back at the Buck Hotel in Feasterville on Thursday nights and the Springfield Inn on Baltimore Pike on Fridays. See you soon. But J ERRY B LAVAT now, let’s ask the Geator. Got a question for Jerry? Send it to or Geator Loved your end-of-summer show and never get sick of hearGold Radio, 626 Market Street, Philadelphia, ing Sinatra sing “The Summer Wind.” Would like to know PA 19106. For more info on Jerry’s appearwho did the orchestration. – Longport Dave ances, go to — and keep on With that organ sound at the beginning, you might rocking, ’cause you only rock once! think it was Neal Hefti, who did the Odd Couple

A Perfect Star

George Clooney’s down-to-earth charm dominates his conversation By Lori Hoffman


HEN IT COMES TO BEING A movie star, George Clooney plays it just right. He is funny and self deprecating with the press, he cares about making films that have something to say, he appreciates his success because he remembers his early struggles, and he devotes himself to several global causes, in particular the continuing refugee problem in Darfur. He attended the Toronto International Film Festival to promote two films opening later this fall, The Men Who Stare at Goats, a political satire due for release Nov. 6, and the superb and Oscar worthy drama-comedy Up In The Air, written and directed by Jason Reitman. Asked about the box office expectations for a political satire, Clooney noted, “We thought this would be a slam dunk, right up there with Transformers 2, anytime you have [a title] with goats in it, you think money.” In a more serious vein he added, “We haven’t focused too much on the economics. We try to make sure that one way or another they make their money back, so we can keep making these same kinds of films. This was a

great script.” Since The Men Who Stare at Goats is about paranormal abilities, Clooney was asked if he could be invisible, where would he go and what would he do. “Be at the White House, but it wouldn’t be as fun as it used to be [when Bush was president]. Then there were all sorts of secrets, but now …” About his friend Matt Damon he joked, “Matt is very competitive with both Brad [Pitt] and myself. Brad and I are two-time [People magazine’s] ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ winners. Matt’s only won it that one time and I consider that a bit of a fluke. Having seen him recently, he needs to do a lot of work to get back up there. I’m going to work with him, because he’s going to run a strong campaign this year.” Clooney spent a lot a years as a struggling actor. When asked about when he realized he was truly famous, he recalled the impact of his breakout series, E.R. “Everything we do is luck and the truth of the matter is I ended up on a TV show that was averaging 40 million viewers a week. They talk about American Idol getting 17 million; we did episodes that

had 50 million viewers. That makes you famous no matter what you do. It was an overnight thing after 12 years of doing really bad television.” He feels he was lucky to have his success after struggling in his younger years. “When you are very young and successful, you think it is all your brilliance. You find out later it probably isn’t. My advice [to young actors] is you’re never quite as good as they say you are when they say you are good, and you’re never quite as bad as they say you are when they say you are bad.” The second press conference was for Up In the Air, a movie that is going to earn Clooney an Oscar nomination and perhaps another one for director Jason

Reitman, who was nominated before for his film Juno. Reitman brought the script to Clooney at his home in Italy. Explained Clooney, “I told him I wouldn’t read it while he was there, but I snuck upstairs, read it, came downstairs and told him I would do it and then we ate pizza.” Chimed in Reitman, “I love how a casual moment for you is one of the great moments of my life.” As for who he admired most and respected in his life and career, Clooney said, “You look up to people who have celebrity and use it for good causes, like Bono, who have been magnificent in the work they’ve done. You look up to the talent of a tremendous amount of actors that walked ahead of you and you steal from all the time. You always end up falling short of people’s expectations. I looked up to my dad for that. He told me that all of this is fleeting. At the end of the day my father is the most influential person in my life.” n To read more about movies and other topics covered by movie critic Lori Hoffman under her blog alias Moviejunkie, visit

The Inlet

Consume with a View

Address: 998 Bay Ave., Somers Point Phone: 926-9611 Details: Liquor license, major credit cards accepted On the Web:

Exceptional cuisine is matched only by spectacular vistas at The Inlet in Somers Point By Frank Gabriel PHOTO BYDON KRAVITZ


OR POSITIVE VERIFICATION THAT the late summer and early autumn weeks are among the very finest at the Jersey shore, simply visit Somers Point’s The Inlet restaurant. Walking in on an early September evening, with the spacious room drenched in brilliant sunshine and abutting the azure waters of Great Egg Harbor, one would be hard pressed to imagine a more idyllic seashore setting. The overall impact is tranquil, creating an optimal atmosphere for relaxation, cocktails and dining. We started with a pair of appetizers and one soup. The latter, a classy bowl of lobster bisque, began our meal with an appropriate flourish. Nicely seasoned, a bit peppery and containing a tingling dose of grated nutmeg, the light orange broth resonated with the essence of lobster, possibly nature’s sweetest seafood. Grilled chicken quesadillas were four wide triangles of grilled flatbread, oozing cheddar. Beneath and surrounding them was a black bean-corn salad, delivering a vinegar flavor and chunky, crimson Pico de Gallo. A light, citrusy avocado crema and squirt of spicy mayo offered additional texture and tastes. My choice, the Asada style duck soft tacos, brought three slider-size discs, piled high with shredded duck confit. The dark brown meat, already luxurious, was further accentuated by a Yucatan spice blend. Layered atop the pleasant,

smoky-tasting poultry were guacamole, Catija cheese and more of that Pico de Gallo. Each mini tortilla was just big enough for two perfect bites, filling the mouth with mildly spiced meat and then, in sequence, creamy avocado, shredded Mexican cheese and fresh, seasonal tomatoes — just the right touch for summer 2009’s final weekend. In a region filled with spectacular waterfront views, The Inlet’s stands second to none. We appreciated that grandeur between courses as the sun slowly traipsed across the sky, painting the airy room with incredible golden tones. And that vista promises to only get better, as the new half-billion dollar causeway and bridge into nearby Ocean City is com-

pleted over the next few years. A plunging arc, it will serve to open up the entire skyline, creating an entirely new vision of the surrounding community. Our entrees were each seafood in origin, which seemed appropriate. My dining partner opted for the grilled Scottish salmon, a large, thickly cut square angled atop a stir-fry of multi-hued peppers, onions and mango, sautéed with sesame oil. Alongside the fish was a trio of dainty, half-moon lobster pot stickers, lively little dumplings tossed, as was the veg garnish, in lemony Yuzu vinaigrette. The salmon itself, paler than it’s North American cousins, was excellently cooked to a respectable medium, leaving the filet’s center quite pink. Among the

world’s most prized seafood, Scottish salmon is dense, satisfying and rich with Omega-3 fat. In short, it’s just about as healthy a protein as exists on our planet. My selection was a treasured dish that far too few restaurateurs choose to include on their bills of fare these days: Nicoise salad, a southern French specialty. This one was structured atop a blend of field greens, the crisp beans known as ‘haricots verts’, various olives, halved cherry tomatoes and blissfully tender fingerling potatoes. Those tiny spuds were the star performers among the salad ingredients. Striped atop that conglomeration were half a dozen bias-cuts of beautiful purple tuna. Seared just on edges, the ahi was extremely fresh and a visual knockout. Ringing the deep bowl were 10 smaller points of the fine grilled flatbread from our earlier quesa appetizer. We thoroughly enjoyed our dessert — peanut butter cup. Dense chunks of dark chocolate rode atop a peanut butter mousse, grounded by a thin foundation of chocolate cake. Our dining partner, however, did everything but inhale their choice, called S’mores. A square bowl, presented with two graham cracker cookies atop, began with wonderfully gooey marshmallow. A third of the way in, this changed to a sweet, comforting chocolate pudding, the stuff childhood — and some adult as well — dreams are made of. n E-mail Frank Gabriel at

As the Harrah’s properties prepare to host a gay-friendly, event-filled weekend, some in the city are hoping it’s the start of something more. By Michael Pritchard

OMETIMES, RECESSIONS CAN present unexpected opportunities. For members of the Atlantic City region’s gay and lesbian community, what might be called a civil rights struggle, an attempt to form a real community or even just an effort to create some kind of gay social life in the area, also has one other good thing going for it. It’s just good business. And that simple fact may give them the most hope for success. Two groups — the recently formed Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and the about year-and-a-half-old social group Be Visible — want Atlantic City to open its arms to a new community, and consequently a new market. Namely, gays and lesbians. “Answering why we formed is easy,” says Rich Helfant, president of the GLBT Alliance. “There is no gay community and no gay life in Atlantic City. And for the city to exclude that segment of the market is just silly.” But even before the group tests the waters, tough economic times are already bringing in gay-friendly events to the city. This weekend, Harrah’s Entertainment holds an “Out in AC” weekend. The festivities include appearances by Lance Bass, Amanda Lepore, Lori Michaels, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy’s Jai Rodriguez, and select cast of Showtime’s The L Word. Events are planned at Club Worship, The Pool at Harrah’s and at The House of Blues. (The Chelsea also has special package deals for the weekend.) “Harrah’s Entertainment strives to provide its customers unique reasons to visit Atlantic City,” said Jennifer Weissman, regional VP of marketing for Harrah’s Atlantic City Operations. “Out in AC will showcase Harrah’s Entertainment as a year-round, friendly destination for the LGBT community.” Meanwhile, the Atlantic City Convention and Visitors Authority (ACCVA) has been marketing the city to gay and lesbian travelers for several years as part of a strategy to attract niche markets. And even some local bars and restaurants have begun to embrace gay-friendly events. It’s not exactly a tidal wave, but some local establishments such as the Ram’s Head Inn in Galloway Township and Le Grand Fromage in Gordon’s Alley have held gay nights.

It’s a start, but still a long way from creating a truly welcoming and, more importantly, a safe feeling for gay travelers. “When I had moved down here from Philadelphia a few years ago, everybody was telling me I’d hate it here,” says Tom Gouker, a 44-year-old casino employee who formed the gay social group Be Visible. “There is virtually no nightlife here for the gay community, and really there’s no real gay community here. Obviously there are gay people here and visiting here, but it’s almost as if everyone is back in the closet. The idea of our group is to try to reconnect with the idea of a community and strengthen it and bring people together.” In the case of Be Visible, despite a political sounding name, the approach has been almost entirely social through the promotion of parties and events. The group has held events such as gay beach days, gay days at The Surf (while the minor-league baseball team was still in existence) and many gay-friendly parties and nights at local restaurants. Gouker expected to meet resistance to putting on the events, but with local nightspots struggling and looking for any way to attract groups of paying customers, things have been easier than he thought. “When I first started this, I expected that most places I approached would say no,” Gouker says. “But nobody did and the events have been growing and becoming more successful. So with the economy the way it is, most establishments now are looking for anything that will bring in a group. So I’m actually being sought after now. Places are coming to me.” Gouker’s first event drew 17 people. He now has more than 500 people on the group’s mailing list. Still, Gouker has hit some stumbling blocks. “We have to be careful not to be too political,” he says. “Many of our members are really put off by that.” Enter the new GLBT Alliance. “Our mission is partly social advocacy and partially a business advocacy,” Helfant says. “And we do have a political purpose as well. But this isn’t about holding gay pride parades with rainbows on the Boardwalk. It’s about encouraging gay businesses, gay-themed events and creating a community. It’s about saying that the gay traveler is welcome here.” From a business point of view, the

Be Visible’s Tom Gouker

gay-and-lesbian niche market could make a major difference for the city, which faces increased competition in casino markets. “When you look at the profiles of gay travelers — and these are statistics, not just my opinion — the gay traveler has more disposable income then the straight traveler,” Helfant says. “Usually they don’t have children so they have more money to spend. Couple that with statistics that show one in 10 people are gay and it’s obviously a desirable market. But when we poll people about Atlantic City, they all have the same complaint. ‘After dark, there’s nothing for us to do.’” Still, for the ACCVA, that lack of gay nightlife is no reason to ignore the gay and lesbian market. “As hotel rooms and attractions have increased it’s given us the opportunity to go after several market segments we couldn’t really attract before,” says Jeffrey Vasser, executive director of the authority. “The room capacity was a major step, but the gay and lesbian traveler also wants certain things. They want high-end accommodations. They want high-end dining and clubs. But most of all, they want to feel welcome. It’s a very logical market for the city to pursue. I think all of us are rooting for the Harrah’s event to succeed.”

Vasser acknowledges, however, that the lack of gay nightlife could be a problem. “But we can’t also assume that nightlife is all the gay traveler wants,” he says. “We have a lot to offer. And it also could be a chicken and egg kind of thing. As we attract more gay and lesbian travelers, the clubs and events will follow to serve the niche.” Still, there is one more thing that both the GBLT Alliance and Gouker’s group want — a general acceptance of the gay and lesbian community in the area. Helfant notes that gay couples often don’t feel comfortable holding hands on the Boardwalk, for example. “A community isn’t just people hanging around together,” Gouker says. “It’s an atmosphere where people can feel relaxed and safe with each other. We’re trying to create a climate that’s welcoming and where people can be themselves. What we have now in this area isn’t very welcoming. That isn’t a community if people can’t be the person they are.” And if that should also happen to be good for business, that’s all the better. “There has been some discussion of that in the group,” Gouker says. “You know, ‘When the economy is down, turn to the gay community.’ But for us, even if it is pandering a little, it’s a chance to strike while the opportunity is there.” ■

Bike MS: City to Shore 2009

Bike the Good Fight

Now in its 29th year, the largest two-day bicycle tour on the East Coast raises millions annually for the Multiple Sclerosis Society By Ray Schweibert


HEY ALL HAVE THEIR REASONS FOR doing it, some with more personal ties to the neurological scourge they’re striving to stamp out, but the key bond is easy to see. About 7,000 bicyclists will push themselves through a lot of pain and discomfort to help ease the burden on others going through something much worse. The 29th annual City to Shore Bike Tour — the largest two-day event of its kind on the East Coast, and the second largest in the United States behind another in Texas — travels from Cherry Hill to Ocean City and back Oct. 3-4. The tour is sponsored by the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, and is one of 100 similar events held throughout the year. Each participant is asked to raise a minimum of $300 in sponsorship, and the target goal of the Del-Val Chapter alone is $5 million for the National MS Society. “We estimate we’ve raised $40 million since we started [as an original chapter participant], about half of which goes toward research projects and the other half toward helping local people living with MS through things like transportation, appointments and referrals to neurologists, or help managing symptoms,” says Kevin Moffitt, vice president of communications for the DelVal Chapter. “We have people who have been coming back for decades now. Most get involved for the first time because they hear it’s a well-run, well-supported event with a nice, scenic route. But what happens is — and we hear this time and time again — when they get to O.C. and turn the final corner toward the finish line, they actually see why they’re riding. They see all those people living with MS who come out to cheer them on.” And these cheering committees are not limited to the finish lines, apparently. “It’s very exciting to be out there among thousands of other riders working toward a cause and having all those people cheering for you at the rest stops, some of them patients in wheelchairs living with MS,” says Dr. Harry

Chaikin, a Brigantine physician participating in his sixth City to Shore. “I know of people who were riders when they were first diagnosed with MS who now no longer have the balance or muscle control needed to do it. The figures are that about 400,000 people are living with MS in the United States, and about 25 million worldwide.” Dresher, Pa., resident Craig Ostroff is gearing up for his third City to Shore, initially becoming involved as a motivational tool to get back in shape. “I was starting to get a little older and needed to make sure I was exercising on a regular basis,” says Ostroff, 36. “I’m not in the best of shape — I’m overweight and generally a pretty lazy guy, so I needed some way to really motivate myself. I enjoyed riding my bike, and I knew that if I signed up it might inspire me to start riding again regularly. I knew that if I had already paid the entry fee, received donations and had friends counting on me to show up, I’d be letting too many people down if I wasn’t able to participate. “I don’t have any friends or relatives who have been diagnosed with MS, but it’s certainly an added bonus that, even though this was something I wanted to do to test myself, I would be able to help raise funds and awareness for an important cause in the process,” adds Ostroff. “I have a large family that I always hit up for donations and they always come through. I’ll also e-mail co-workers soliciting donations, and I’ve also raised funds from Facebook friends, which surprises me because I never thought I’d find a productive use for Facebook.” Chaikin networked himself through his fellow physicians, friends and family, and as a first-year City to Shore rider in 2004 earned “Rookie of the Year” honors with over $7,000 in sponsorship. He also participates in the annual Battle for Hunger Tour (assisting the Atlantic County Rescue Mission) and other events benefiting cancer and ALS (his colleague, Dr. Edward Lisk, died of ALS earlier this year), often riding as captain of the AtlantiCare Starfish Team or with his eldest daughter, Hannah. “You’ll

When: Sat.-Sun., Oct. 3-4 Where: The primary route goes from the PATCO-Woodcrest train station in Cherry Hill to the Ocean City Civic Center and back (75 miles each direction, each day). There are also two shorter, single-day routes and a first-day “century” ride (100 miles) for more advanced cyclists. Phone: 1-800-445-2453 Web site: see people of all sorts on the [MS] ride, and on all sorts of bikes,” says Chaikin. “There’s an Asian woman who must be in her 70s who’s been doing it for years, and she does it on a coaster [one-speed] bike wearing these clunky shoes and gear you wouldn’t think of as appropriate for such a long ride. But every year she’s out there, and now she’s got her grandkids doing it with her.” Moffitt says he and his associates are hoping to track down some former participants for a special anniversary tour next fall. “We’re looking into maybe finding some of the people who participated 10 or more years ago, and coaxing them back to do it again next year,” says Moffitt. “It’ll be a good excuse to come back and celebrate the tour’s 30th anniversary.” n

Yeah Yeah Yeahs Where: Borgata Music Box, Atlantic City When: Saturday, Sept. 26, 9pm

T ’ S HARD T O S AY NO T O T H E Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ live show. You never know what vocalist Karen O is going to do. The hyperkinetic front woman careens about the stage while her messy mop of black hair covers her intense eyes. She has more in common with old-school rockers like Iggy Pop than pop-rock contemporaries like Katy Perry. O is real and isn’t the least bit self-conscious onstage. “The key for me is to get really plastered,” O says in a recent phone call with Atlantic City Weekly. “I don’t have to get drunk when I play, but I admit it makes it easier. It helps me not think about anything onstage. I don’t worry about what anyone thinks of me or the band. The best way to do it live is to just let it rip.” O is not the only reason that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are a live force. Bespectacled powerhouse Brian Chase slams away at his drum kit as guitaristkeyboardist Nick Zinner delivers minimal but melodic lines. O commands attention as she stalks the stage like a famished predator. “That’s just the way we do things,” O says. “That comes natural to us.” The band has morphed from a littleknown New York City-based indie act

to one of the most identifiable acts in Gotham. The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, who will perform Saturday (Sept. 26) at Borgata’s Music Box, headlined Wednesday at Radio City Music Hall. But even though the group is playing one of the most storied venues in Manhattan, which signifies that you made it, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs haven’t changed a bit. The trio remains gritty, tenacious and dramatic. “I don’t see why any band becomes

that recalls the hedonism of the Rolling Stones and the joy of the Sugarcubes. Few contemporary rock albums possess the range of It’s Blitz!, which careens from straight-forward rock to the Celtic tinged to serene balladry. “There’s no point in repeating yourself album to album,” O says. “You have to keep growing and expanding as an artist. That’s what we’re trying to do as a band.”

‘The key for me is to get really plastered.’ – Karen O something else,” O says. “You should remain true to yourself, your band and your music.” The Yeah Yeah Yeahs are touting their third album, It’s Blitz! The band remains true to mixing things up. It veers from guitar-driven rock to a sonic changeup of sorts. Much of the new material is keyboard-oriented. The songs are direct and immediate, which is quite a contrast from the band’s last album, 2006’s Show Your Bones, which is a more personal, introspective work. The new tunes are sexy, sensual and dramatic. It’s a style of rock

The audiences keep expanding but it doesn’t stop O from looking back at the band’s early days getting established in New York at the turn of the millennium. “Things have taken off, but [you] can ground yourself by thinking about those early humbling days,” O says. “I remember our second show ever. It was at CBGBs and we were between some hair-metal bands. Back then I would douse myself in olive oil to glisten when we performed. I remember the olive oil dripping in my eyes and burning them and no one was paying atten-

tion. Everyone was sitting at a table and talking. It was so depressing, maybe our most depressing show ever. But everyone goes through shows like that. The memory of that kind of show stays with you and that’s a good thing.” These days, those attending Yeah Yeah Yeahs shows are like antennas, soaking up every last decibel and nuance at shows. “It’s great that people come out and are there [in rapt attention],” says O. “They’re focused and so are we.” O has become one of rock’s most prominent females, following in the footsteps of such provocateurs as Debbie Harry, Siouxsie Sioux and Bjork. “It’s interesting being a woman in rock, because if you are a female in a band, you tend to stand out,” says O. “I’m the only female in this band. At shows, the people who work on things are predominantly female. I can see why it’s more exciting for females coming to a show and seeing a woman front a band because we’re in the minority in this business. But I try not to think about things like that. I’m not focusing on being a female up there. I just want to be up there performing with the best band.” n see more online @

Interview by Carole Mattessich

HEN ANCIENT GREEKS coined the root for the word â&#x20AC;&#x153;philanthropy,â&#x20AC;? the term connoted a fascination with human potential. Later, filtered through the Roman concept of â&#x20AC;&#x153;humanitas,â&#x20AC;? philanthropy came to mean love of humanity. Today, we associate the term with those who do public good through private means. Gary Hill is known for various philanthropic efforts in the Atlantic City area â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where he has lived for more than 22 years, and currently lends assistance to charitable, arts and historic preservation efforts.

Do you wake up one day and say, I want to be a philanthropist? Not at all. In terms of a conventional career, I was a teacher for 11 years, then moved into public relations, marketing, community relations, here in Atlantic City. But early on, in high school and college, I was involved in efforts like Walk for Life and collecting funds for muscular dystrophy. Initially, that was in a very minor volunteer capacity, but it grew. People would ask me to be on a committee, then to serve as chair, then to help raise money. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the real work begins. Involvement with philanthropy is a growing process, and it depends upon oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s means, available time and energy.

You devote the better part of your day to it now. I serve on about 10 non-profit boards here in the area. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that need, or desire, to give back to our community and other people. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that people who are either successful, or fortunate enough to have a good networking connection with people, or financial ability, give back. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just an essential, humanitarian thing we should do.
