More than Mobsters Made the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s Roar

What was the impetus for Red Bank, N.J.-based author and historian Karen Schnitzspahn to put together her most recent New Jersey history book, The Roaring â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s at the Jersey Shore? Well, if you think she was trying to cash in on the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boardwalk Empire craze, guess again. Published in 2009, although the book has certainly intrigued more readers since HBO launched the series this past September, it is really a tribute to Schnitzspahnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents, who met on the Atlantic City Boardwalk during the Depression era. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grandparents had been coming down to enjoy the sea air in Atlantic City since the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s and until much later,â&#x20AC;? says the author of several books on regional history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jersey shore did survive OK during the Depression,â&#x20AC;? she adds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when my parents met. Later, when they talked about the Depression, [they said] there was a lot of things they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to do, but they did enjoy their shows and all in Atlantic City.â&#x20AC;? With the resort running through her bloodstream, Schnitzspahn began to accumulate a large collection of vintage photos, post cards, menus, playbills, and other ephemera from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s. The book features these colorful artifacts in more than 100 pages, along with great stories, detailed captions and tons of background information â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not only on her own family, but about Atlantic City, Margate and other shore towns. The book also illustrates how different the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;20s were with the end of the decade, when the roaring screeched to a halt with the 1929 stock market crash that led to the Depression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that stands out in my mind,â&#x20AC;? says the author. The book is available at local bookstores and all online booksellers. (Visit acweekly.com for a video segment with the author.) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jeff Schwachter

There are a lot of Christmas traditions in the southern New Jersey area, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to beat one that includes climbing 228 steps into the sky to take in the view of Absecon Island at the holidays. The event is the Absecon Lighthouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual Holiday Gathering, now in its fifth year, scheduled for Sat. Dec. 11 from 6-8pm. Tops on the agenda is Christmas caroling with the help of the professional caroling group Holiday Cheer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This year they will be dressed in full Victorian garb,â&#x20AC;? says Jean Muchanic, director of the lighthouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They sing a capella with a lot of four-part harmony.â&#x20AC;? And, of course, guests are invited to sing along. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to tell you, nobody is shy about singing along, not when you have professionals to really carry the tune. It really puts people in the Christmas mood,â&#x20AC;? says Muchanic. Add to that a special lighting of the lighthouse Christmas tree, light bites from Tony Boloneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, treats from Formicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bakery, wine and beer and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a pretty good party. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We get a lot of families, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great date night as well,â&#x20AC;? says Muchanic. A $20 donation is asked for the party. Tickets can be reserved by calling 449-1360. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike

Count yourself lucky to be alive at a time when some of the most respected, prolific and unique singer-songwriters ever are still plying their trade. Jonathan Richman, whose Boston band the Modern Lovers linked the Velvet Underground and the Sex Pistols on the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legendary 1976 self-titled debut, is no exception. Richmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest is a spare, stark and acoustic sequel to 2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Because Her Beauty Is Raw and Wild. With his muchacho Tommy Larkins backing him on drums, Richman plays scrappy yet beautiful jazz chords and sings in English, French and Spanish.

Go Back Stage for live bands, sultry dancers at the HOB. By Ray Schweibert

F

O R HEADLIN E AC TS LI K E THI S Fridayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;ladies night outâ&#x20AC;? event featuring three sensual R&B stars, patrons would head up the long escalator, past the Foundation Room, and enter the House of Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Music Hall. For those simply searching for a place to sit back and chill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or perhaps continue the party after the headline acts are over â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one could do a whole lot worse than hanginâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at HOBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Back Stage lounge. Live bands and house DJs share the Back Stage spotlight every Friday and Saturday night (8pm-4am), while tempting, tantalizing and talented dancers (10pm-3am) grace a strategically placed set of large, lit-up square platforms. VIP bottle service is available at a seating area of overstuffed couches and chairs in front of a small stage and dance floor, or at tables adjacent to HOBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poker room. Every Sunday a large projection screen fronts the stage, and the lounge is converted into a sports-bar of sorts with food and drink specials during all the football action. Back Stage is part of a recent restructuring of that section of Showboatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaming level. Live cover bands used to perform in a sort of carved-out section of the HOB restaurant across the hall. Now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a spread-out lounge atmosphere where poker tables and an elevated, 16-seat (electronic poker-equipped) bar are more an integral part of the whole Back Stage ambience. Many southern New Jersey cover bands play at Back Stage on weekends, among them the five-person group Garden State Radio thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slated to appear there Friday night, Dec. 10. On Saturday, Dec. 11, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the four-man band Formerly Known As, which is also a semi-regular at Ri-Ra Irish Pub in The Quarter (coming there the following Friday, Dec. 17), and is the house band every Sunday at noted Northeast Philly sanctuary Sweeneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Saloon. Garden State Radio plays mostly poprock hits from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s through today, and is comprised of 20-somethings Kelly Caruso as lead vocalist, guitarist/vocalists Drew Koerner and Brian Pascoe, bassist Stephan Badyna and drummer Ryan Kelly. They have roughly an 80-song repertoire, perform in about a half-dozen states as far north as Vermont, and have a special New Yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eve gig lined up at Back Stage on Dec. 31.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Back Stage] is a lot different from your typical nightclub because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the casino crowd, and usually if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good night at the casino, Back Stage will also be packed,â&#x20AC;? says Kelly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mixed crowd because of the casino environment, but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely some familiar faces that we see each time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We love playing there because they make it easy for us and [the staff] know what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always the case, especially in the big cities like Philly and New York City. Some of those places can be a free-for-all.â&#x20AC;? While Back Stageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dance floor is somewhat small (about 15 by 30 feet), patrons are welcomed and encouraged to boogie down to the beats if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so inclined. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this one guy whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been following us around since the [A.C.] beach-bar scene [during the summer].

CURTAIN CALL

50 Years for Rogers By David J. Spatz

A

T AGE 72, KENNY ROGERS HAS a little extra hitch in his giddy-up these days, and for good reason. Currently in the middle of a 20-city North American tour with his annual holiday show, the iconic singing star is celebrating a career milestone few artists achieve: 50 years of entertaining audiences with his blend of country and pop music. To mark his golden anniversary in the business, Rogers will air a television special early next year with a list of guest stars usually reserved for major awards ceremonies: Tim McGraw, Wynonna Judd, Dolly Parton, the Oak Ridge Boys, Alison Krauss, Lionel Richie, Chris Isaak, Smokey Robinson and Darius Rucker, among others. The special, titled Kenny Rogers: The First 50 Years, was taped last April at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods in Connecticut. “When this was first proposed to me as

Kenny Rogers comes to the Taj celebrating 50 years of entertaining audiences. a 50-year celebration, something about that sounded final, and I didn’t want that,” Rogers says on his Web site. “So I suggested we call it ‘The First 50 Years.’ ” He called the special “awesome,” but then comically added, “The next 50-years TV show is gonna be a bitch.” On the special, many of the guest artists will be performing their interpretations of some of the dozens of chart-topping singles Rogers has amassed, first as a member of the group the First Edition in the 1960s and later as a solo artist. Seeing Isaak performing “Ruby, Don’t Take Your Love to Town,” which was a hit for the First Edition in 1969, unleashed a torrent of memories for Rogers. When he and his old group recorded the song, they had three hours in the studio to nail down three songs, and if they didn’t get them done in the prescribed amount of time, too bad. They completed the trio of tunes with 20 minutes to spare. It was then that he heard another artist perform “Ruby,” and he says he was determined to record that song, too, before time ran out. “So the whole time Chris Isaak was playing, I was remembering the panic we had to get that song done in 20 min-

utes,” he told the Ottawa Citizen recently. “Those are the moments, the flashbacks I had when I was doing this special.” Rogers will be the only headliner performing a dedicated holiday show in Atlantic City this season, and he’s bringing the show to Trump Taj Mahal on Saturday, Dec. 11, to continue a tradition that dates back at least a decade. For the casino show, Rogers will be blending holiday favorites with many of the songs that have become his musical signature over the years, including “Lady,” “The Gambler” and “Ruby.” The holiday season has always been special for Rogers, who recorded his first Christmas album in 1981 and launched his first holiday tour that same year. Being the father of six-year-old twin boys had made the season even more festive for the entertainer. “As you get older, Christmas combines tradition and a religious holiday, both of which are important,” he said, “but when you add kids and Santa Claus to that mix, it really brings back a lot of memories.” His holiday show, he added, will hopefully provide folks with an escape from their worries and take them back to a kindler, gentler time when the world spun a little slower and records spun a lot faster. “I think when times are bad you need an escape and sometimes your escape can be memories of when things were good,” he says. “We’re all looking to decompress and to remember things when times were better, and look forward to when times get better. I get great memories from these [holiday] songs, and if someone else does, too, that’s a bonus.” Rogers began his professional music career playing the upright bass in a jazz band in 1960 in his native Texas, and then joined the New Christie Minstrels before forming the First Edition and paving the way for his successful solo career.

WHITNEYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RADAR

Thrifty & Thoughtful Gifts T By Whitney Ullman

O FOLLOW UP ON LAST WEEKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S column, figuring out what to buy a loved one requires a good memory, a little detective work and a well thought-out budget. However, when we finally buckle down to buy the gift, are there any creative and thrifty ways to do so? Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad you asked! Using resources such as friends, the Internet and local businesses, here are some key suggestions that will help you in your thrifty, cost-saving journey. There are local thrift shops where you can find many new and gently used items that are inexpensive and perfectly suitable to give as gifts. One place in particular is the Alcove Thrift Shop located next to the Tilton 9 Theatre in Northfield. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find good stuff and be helping a good cause at the same time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Alcove Center for Grieving Children & Families. A few other great ideas, courtesy of my friend Jean Maskuli, include: CustomizedGirl.com â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Check out

their discount section and make personalized items for friends and family. Quick delivery and items are priced as low as $11. UStarNovels.com â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Create a novel (from classic to vampire romance) where your friend or family member is the star. The cost is $25 before shipping. Awesome! Donations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; You can donate as little as $5 to $10 in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s honor, and many places will send the recipient a card saying that a donation was made without specifying how much (check with your charitable organization first, as not all policies are the same). This is another case of being thrifty while charitable at the same time. Good Deed Coupons â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Just make up coupons where you write IOUs that can be redeemed at any time. Examples might be â&#x20AC;&#x153;babysit for an hour,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean the house,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;a romantic dinner or a movieâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; whatever. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re thoughtful gifts that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost anything â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at least not immediately. Along the lines of Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good-deed coupons idea, a similar concept would be to

gift your skill set. In other words, if you are good at cooking, cleaning, designing, photography, fixing things, etc., then gift a certificate to someone for those services. While youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at it, some of the most thoughtful gifts are those that are homemade. For instance create a photo book. Or make your own greeting card. It can be so easy with computer paper, markers, glue, glitter, and ribbon or other materials. There are certainly an abundant amount of online places to shop, however for local action you also have a lot of choices. Check out places like the The Walk in Atlantic City or the Hamilton Mall in Mays Landing. On the mall front, specials are posted regularly on the shophamilton. com special values page. And if you need your gifts wrapped, make sure to check out the Ruth Newman Shapiro Cancer & Heart Fund gift-wrap booth, which opens on Dec. 10 across from the food court. If you happen to be at the Shore Mall, gift wrapping to benefit Shaloma Hadassah also begins Dec. 10. On shoestringmag.com there are 15 different ways to save money. Here is one that stood out. First, use photo.stamps.com to

personalize with a photo of yourself so when you send a card it will have more meaning. If you are buying for kids, on abcnews.go.com there is a great article called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trick Kids with Size.â&#x20AC;? It states that â&#x20AC;&#x153;big-ticketâ&#x20AC;? gifts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be big in price. Kids are often fooled by size â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thinking the more room presents take up under the tree, the more fun and flashy they are. So this year, buy big inexpensive gifts like art easels or snow sleds. No matter what your gift-giving style, remember itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the thought that counts! Ă&#x160;N

but maybe they just werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that lucky in this event. The event itself was won by Atlanta amateur Christopher Rivers (a pretty good poker name) who took home $64,565. Rivers went heads-up with Matthew Diggs of Edgewood, Md., on the final hands. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a rundown of the action from the WSOP: Heads up play between Diggs and Rivers began shortly after 3am with blinds and antes at 50,000/100,000/20,000 and both players even in chips. The decisive hand came on a 6c, 5s, 4c flop after which Diggs raised Riversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 200k bet all-in. Rivers eventually made the call and showed pocket jacks. Diggs showed 2s, leaving him needing help on the turn and river. A queen and 10 were no help and Diggs was left with 700k. The final hand came shortly after with Diggs outkicked all-in with K-10 to Riversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; K-Q. Riversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hand held through the river and a Circuit Event champion was made. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The last couple of times I limped, he raised,â&#x20AC;? Rivers recounted of the hand that crippled Diggs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I decided to limp with jacks, and though I hoped he would play me aggressive after the flop, I was worried about him drawing out on me, but I eventually called. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh man, this is great, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited.â&#x20AC;? Also, poker pro Annie Duke will appear at the circuit events Dec. 10 at 6pm in the poker room and then will play in the room Dec. 11 starting about 11am. Duke has been making numerous appearances in A.C. this year in support of WSOP events. In some other news, the Borgata has once again shown that it will always answer its competitors and has scheduled a series of special tournaments for December. The December Mini-series offers some amped up buy-ins, including a $1,500 + $150 Deepstack tournament on Dec. 17, just two-days before the WSOP circuit $10,000 regional championship event. The series begins this weekend, on Dec. 10, with a $500 + $60 No Limit event. You can check out the schedule at A.C. Weeklyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poker blog at acweekly.com/poker.

N THE WAKE OF THE SEEMINGLY constant stream of bad news surrounding Atlantic Cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gaming revenues in recent months, a lot was riding on two events in the city this week. First was the successful transition of Resortsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ownership to Dennis Gomes and Morris Bailey, which seems to be proceeding without a hitch and with little public fanfare. Of course this is a poker column, and since Resorts doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer a poker room, well, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move on. The second was the World Series of Poker circuit event that started Saturday, Dec. 4, at Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort. A poker tournament might seem to rank way below a struggling casino coming under new ownership. Yet throughout efforts to revitalize the resort, one word keeps coming up â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perception. That Atlantic City has to change its image and perception to be more than just casinos is a constant refrain. But you know what? It wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt if the casinos were seen as hopping a little too. And at the opening of this WSOP circuit event, Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s was hopping like never before. The opening event of the circuit, a $300 buy-in, No Limit event, set a record for Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resort with 1,250 players. The field beats a 1,181-player field at a 2008 circuit event and is now the biggest tournament ever played at the casino. While the circuit events have benefited all year from reorganization and new structures, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still pretty gratifying to see a December event in Atlantic City draw that much attention and players. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even mentioning the fact that it proves another casino besides the Borgata can generate a little poker mania. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited for having set this record,â&#x20AC;? said Harrahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poker director, John Arthur. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got it right this year with the structures and everything else we have put into place for the Circuit and hope to continue having great numbers through the rest of the series.â&#x20AC;? Looking at the 135 players who got paid in the event, the field was dominated by New Jersey and New York players and had a good representation for Maryland and Virginia. Strangely, there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that many Pennsylvania players,

OWNERSHIP GI<JJI<C<8J<1 ()&'0&(' AC Dolls, Atlantic City’s premiere gentlemen’s club, will now be known as Melissa Jeffries’ AC Dolls. Melissa has been a well-known figure around the Atlantic City bar and club scene over the last 15 years. Melissa was quoted as saying, “I have been working toward this goal for the past 15 years and when an opportunity like this presented itself and I saw how much business this club was already doing, I had to move on it quickly.” She went on to say, “We will be making constant improvements to the interior and exterior of the club to enhance our guests’ experience. I am so excited to finally have a home that is really my home that all my friends (customers) over the last 15 years can come and enjoy -- because I realize without them I wouldn’t have had this opportunity.” Melissa went on to say, “Our goal at AC Dolls is to have the most inviting, prettiest girls in the city and, looking around, I believe we have achieved that!” In this writer’s humble opinion, I would have to agree, whoa! Melissa has always strived to be number one in everything she does. From being an undefeated equestrian to being a national champion in the Off Shore Powerboat Association’s P-5 category, we don’t think AC Dolls will be any different. She has already booked some major holiday parties. If you already know Melissa, stop by and say hi. If you don’t, stop in and introduce yourself. To get on her private-label VIP guest list, you can reach her at the club at (609) 345-2236 or on her cell phone at (609) 576-3553. Another way is to just stop in to AC Dolls, located at 2600 Pacific Ave (big pink building) in Atlantic City. The club is open from Tuesday to Saturday 8pm-???? (when the last customer leaves or when Melissa throws you out). 8;M<IKFI@8C

IFT CARDS. GIFT CARDS. GIFT CARDS. YES, IT IS TRUE — as AC Weekly columnist Whitney Ullman wrote in her column last issue — that today you can buy a gift card for just about anywhere and at just about everywhere — including the local Wawa and supermarket. However, we concur that although gift cards do have their place as holiday gifts, a more personalized approach is the way to go. And during this holiday season especially, it’s not only key to go the personal route when purchasing gifts for family, friends and loved ones, it’s also smart to buy local. Supporting local businesses during this so-called “recession in recovery” is vital in order to prevent further storefronts in the area from going dark. Here, interspersed with other great gift ideas, are several gifts that can either be purchased locally or have a local slant. (See the online version of this feature for more gift ideas.) Happy shopping and a happy and healthy holiday season to all of our readers.

Johnny Andrews: 1934-2010 Atlantic City and the entire region loses a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;true gentleman of jazzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Jeff Schwachter

L

IFE-LONG ATLANTIC CITY resident, Korean war veteran, and most importantly a family man and a jazz musician and educator, Johnny Andrews was one of the good ones. The one-time host of the Monday Night Jazz Series at the legendary Club Harlem in Atlantic City, Andrews, who passed away Nov. 28, was a fixture on the southern New Jersey jazz scene for decades. He performed at area clubs and festivals, including appearances at the Cape May Jazz Festival. In recent years, Andrews performed at the Showboat Casino and in local hospitals as a volunteer in AtlantiCareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creative Arts & Healing Program. A funeral and viewing were held this past Saturday, Dec. 4, at St. Monicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Church in Atlantic City. The funeral was followed by an extraordinary jazz gathering at Gardnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basin, inside the Join us on Facebook:

facebook.com/ACWeekly

Flying Cloud restaurant, where, according to those who attended, the place was packed with musicians playing and honoring the late southern New Jersey jazz pioneer. Andrews, a Holy Spirit High School graduate (class of 1951), was buried at Holy Cross Cemetery in Mays Landing. After graduating from high school, Andrews, who was honored with a lifetime achievement award a few years ago by the Somers Point Jazz Society, enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed outside Tokyo, Japan during the Korean War. It was during his stint with the military that he teamed up with fellow jazz musicians and had his first successful band. In an interview with Atlantic City Weekly in May 2008, Andrews, who was at the time still performing regularly around town and in the casino lounges either solo or with a local band, said that ever

since the military, throughout his life, he â&#x20AC;&#x153;always made time for music.â&#x20AC;? Freelance writer Carole Mattessich, who interviewed Andrews for the piece, wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most striking about Andrews, as he shares anecdotes of hosting or interviewing jazz greats [on his radio show], is the absence of self-importance, and the sense that he imparts memories as another way to further jazz music. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the names woven into his elegant recollections form a veritable jazz encyclopedia.â&#x20AC;? Andrews also taught jazz courses as an adjunct professor at the Richard Stockton College for several years. Nick Regine, of the Somers Point Jazz Society, tells Atlantic City Weekly that the Atlantic City region has lost a â&#x20AC;&#x153;true gentleman of jazz.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Johnny was one of the first to promote jazz on local radio [in the modern

era],â&#x20AC;? says Regine, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I always credit him, with his WOND radio show â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jazz Workshopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; during the mid-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s and him being a constant champion of jazz, for getting me into the music. I used to love to hear those old radio shows. In a way, he gave birth to the modern jazz scene that we have now [locally]. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was a very great jazz pianist, comfortable in many styles of jazz, from stride to bebop to more modern playing,â&#x20AC;? adds Regine. Andrews, even while having his own health issues in recent years, often performed for patients and hospital staff at AtlantiCare Regional Medical Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (ARMC) mainland campus in Galloway as part of the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creative Arts & Healing Program. Dahlia Smythe, who helps run the AtlantiCare Creative Arts & Healing Program, was delighted when Andrews first started to play at the hospital a couple years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was an amzing musician,â&#x20AC;? Smythe says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really a big loss to us and the community that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone and we send out our regards to his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll really be missed.â&#x20AC;?

FOOD & DRINK

Arturoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Taste of Italy By Frank Gabriel

A

DVENTUROUS DINING ALERT: if you consider yourself a culinary sophisticate searching for ways to broaden your perspective, keep reading. This same principle applies to anyone with an interest in fine wine, or those simply looking for an out-of-the-ordinary evening of victuals and vin. Arturoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant at Ballyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently hosted the second in a seven-part series of regional wine dinners on Friday, Dec. 3. Featuring the eclectic eats of the Veneto â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Italyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most unusual region, more on that later â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and wines from Verona-based Ca De Rocchi, the festivities began with sparkling Prosecco and butlered trays of hors dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;oeuvres. Included were four amuse bouche-sized samplings: chicken and veal liver on crispy polenta rounds, a duet of sardines (pickled and deep fried) plus beef carpaccio wound on tiny forks with fresh artichokes and aged Parmigiano cheese. We deeply admired the gutsiness of this opening salvo. These true gourmet delights were light years beyond the standard fritto misto we might have expected. That willingness to experiment and stretch the skills of the kitchen created an atmosphere of inspired indulgence. We especially adored the fried sardines, reminding us of our favorite â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seven Fishesâ&#x20AC;? requirement, crispy smelts. For anyone who thinks of these little critters as greasy or acrid, this flaky version will convert you. Once seated, we began with an outrageously rich starter, a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cappuccinoâ&#x20AC;? of creamed potato and black cuttlefish. Filled halfway in a large glass cup, the contrasting colors were swirled, parfait-

Arturoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chef Maurizio DiMarco

style; a pretty presentation. Like a savory take on deli classic black-and-white cookies, we dug into the rich potato, dipping it into the salty, indigo-shaded broth of the cuttlefish. That odd creature â&#x20AC;&#x201D; actually a mollusk but generally perceived as a kin to the octopus and squid â&#x20AC;&#x201D; creates a musky, aromatic flavor completely unlike any other seafood. Next up was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;refresherâ&#x20AC;? of blood orange sorbet topped by shrimp and mussels with shaved fennel and radicchio. The sorbet was spectacular; crimson and assertive. Add-ons, at first visually puzzling, made sense once spooned and tasted as an ensemble. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been anticipating risotto with fresh peas, â&#x20AC;&#x153;risi bisi,â&#x20AC;? since spying the peasant staple on a printed menu.

Composed of creamy carnaroli rice, considered by savvy Italians to be the â&#x20AC;&#x153;king of rices,â&#x20AC;? this warming bowl worked well on a bleak December night, as we peered down through the roomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s windows at a cold, windswept beach. Possessing longer grain and firmer texture than more common arborio, carnaroli is also native to northernmost Italy, in harmony with the eveningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme. Arturoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chef, Maurizio DiMarco, queried earlier as to what preparation he was most excited about serving, enthusiastically pointed to the fish. This plating, a corn crusted John Dory filet atop celery root puree, thoroughly failed to disappoint. Heartier than most white-meat fish, John Dory reminded us of exceptional halibut. Beneath it the puree, a pale jade,

provided contrasting, equally cerebral and earthy notes. Thoughtfully paired with a white called Lugana, the overall composition of this course was faultless. Good call, chef. Meat, served next, illustrated our earlier comment about Venuto (whose capital is Venice). Tucked in a corner of northeastern Italy, Venetian cuisine has always been influenced by its immediate neighbors, Switzerland and Austria. Veal filet with Prosecco sauce and beet root quenelles, looked more like an item from a court of the Austro-Hungarian Empire than anything typically perceived as Italian. Accompanied by the powerful red Amarone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; explained by master sommelier and co-host Eugene Engel as crafted from sweet, raisiny grapes â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the vealâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concentrated, beefy essence shone regally. Desserts were a delicate, pleasant strawberry/mascarpone torte drizzled with aged balsamic along with an assortment of cookies. We were even fortunate enough to receive a pair of mini-cannolis, signaling victory in the finale of the nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special prizes, an authentic silver and gold Venetian carnivale mask. Bringing up another, undeniable fact â&#x20AC;&#x201D; incredible value â&#x20AC;&#x201D; where else will you be lovingly treated to an eightcourse formal feast, plus nearly unlimited wine over the course of three plus hours, with prizes, for only $75? The remainder of Arturoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional wine-dinner seriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; schedule is as follows: Lombardy, Jan. 14; Abruzzo, Feb. 11; Piedmont, March 11; Puglia, April 15; and Sicily, May 20. For reservations, call 340-2300. Ă&#x160;N E-mail Frank Gabriel at fgabriel@acweekly.com

Cyndi Lauper

Where: Tropicana, A.C. When: Friday, Dec. 10, 9pm How Much: $35, $55 and $65

Cyndi Lauper is coming to the Tropicana with an early Christmas gift — her timeless music. By Ed Condran

D

Join us on Facebook:

Cyndi Lauper,” comic Margaret Cho says. “She does her own thing. It’s all her and you just don’t see that so much anymore. I totally respect that.” Lauper, a mother, has a strong personality on and off stage. She has a touch and a charm that is uncommon. She easily breaks the fourth wall on stage. “I like having fun with the audience,” Lauper says. “Why just go up there and sing songs? There are people out there and they want to be entertained.” There is also a serious side to Lauper, who has championed gay rights. “I’m about many different causes,” Lauper says. “I grew up during the civil rights struggle that African-Americans were having. “That was a difficult struggle. Women had a difficult struggle for equality. That’s been a long fight. The LBGT community has had to fight for its rights. We should all have equality. I’m lucky that I have a platform. I would like to use it to make change. Some of the things that have

gone down with [the LBGT community] are unacceptable. They should have equal rights.” It’s no surprise that the affable Lauper embraces everyone. She is a humanitarian, who loves her fans. Lauper aims to please, but sometimes she can’t please all of her fans. Sometimes she can’t play every hit. Fortunately for Lauper she has a deep canon to draw from when she hits the stage. “It’s a good situation for me to have so many songs that I’m not sure what will get into the set list and what won’t,” Lauper says. “When it comes to the big hits, I usually include them. But there have been times that I’ve rested [certain] hits and just went with other hits and other songs. But when you come out, you can normally expect me to play what you’re most familiar with. I’ll play those hits, but I like to change things up to keep things fresh and interesting for me and I just try to give the best show possible.” n

Lauper has no problem with such classics as Robert Johnson’s “Crossroads” or Big Bill Broonzy’s “Romance in the Dark.” There’s little doubt that the energetic fireball can sing anything. “I love to sing,” Lauper says. “I don’t have to sing one kind of thing. Just give me a song and watch me go.” Aside from her musical talent, what’s so appealing about Lauper is that she is one of the few remaining true characters in rock. Lauper has always been a quirky, independent and strong-willed entertainer. That was the way it was when the porcelain skinned waif with the iridescent hair went national a generation ago. She has always been unique. “I don’t think there is anyone like

ecember is perhaps the best time to catch Cyndi Lauper perform. You never know what the animated vocalist will do when she hits the stage. She could render Christmas songs, offer hits or deep album cuts. “This is the greatest time of year,” Lauper tells Atlantic City Weekly. “That’s especially so for someone like me. I’m just a sucker for Christmas. Is there a more fun season? I love listening to a variety of Christmas music. I love reggae Christmas songs, mambo Christmas songs. I’ve always been drawn to holiday songs like ‘All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.’ I like songs like that and the [Alvin and the Chipmunks] stuff. To tell you the truth I love it all.” It’s not surprising that Lauper loves the sillier tunes as well as the serious songs since that sums up Lauper’s sensibility as a recording artist. Lauper, who performs Friday, Dec. 10, at the Tropicana, broke in thanks to her aptly titled She’s So Unusual, which is filled with a variety of new-wave pop and was a major smash in 1984. The diminutive vocalist with the huge set of pipes sung songs (“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” “She Bop” and “Yeah Yeah”), which are as cartoonish as the walking rainbow, which was Lauper circa 1984. “I had the greatest time back then,” Lauper says. “What was not to like? I went from some tough times, but that’s the way it goes in this business.” Lauper struggled with the obscure Blue Angel, her band before her rise to superstardom. It was only a matter of time for Lauper, who always had big booming pipes, perfect pitch and a style like no other artist. It happened for Lauper when She’s So Unusual dropped. She went from unknown to one of the most popular singers of the 1980s. The album, which has sold over 16 million copies, was in the Top 200 for 65 weeks. It helped launch Lauper into the pop stratosphere. She has sold more then 30 million albums and is instantly recognizable by face or voice. “That album was huge for me,” Lauper says. “There’s no two ways about that. It established me.” She’s So Unusual primarily shows off the lighter, goofier and poppier side of Lauper and then there is her latest offer-

Caesars Tribute: A Salute to the Golden Age of American Skating Where: Boardwalk Hall, A.C. When: Saturday, Dec. 11, 7:30pm How Much: $29.50-$149.50

By Lori Hoffman

tlantic City has hosted numerous professional skating exhibitions over the years, including the era when Boardwalk Hall was the summer home for the Ice Capades, from 1940-1981. However, despite its long history as a skating venue, it has never hosted an event so star-studded as the Caesars Tribute: A Salute to the Golden Age of American Skating, which takes place Saturday night, Dec. 11. Headlining the show is the reigning Olympic 2010 gold medalist Evan Lysacek, joined by 2006 Olympic silver medalist and three-time World Champion, Sasha Cohen, as well as Nancy Kerrigan, Brian Boitano, Scott Hamilton, Peggy Fleming, Sarah Hughes, Michael Weiss and doubles champions Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner. “We are ecstatic to bring together a cast of figure skaters with the most medals ever represented in one place at one time,” says Jerry Solomon, president of StarGames, the sports marketing agency bringing the event

This superstar skating event will be filmed and broadcast on NBC on Christmas Day.

to Boardwalk Hall. “With more than 200 Olympic, World and National medals combined, the talent of the 30 skaters slated to perform at the Caesars tribute will make for one incredible and memorable night.” Fleming will not be skating, but will be one of the hosts of the show, which will be filmed and broadcast on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, on NBC. In addition, special appearances and presentations will be made by and for other skating icons such as 1948 and 1952 Olympic gold medal winner Dick Button, and 1992 Olympic gold medal winner Kristi Yamaguchi. Bringing the event to Atlantic City was a product of StarGames’ multi-year partnership with Caesars Entertainment (formerly Harrah’s Entertainment), that included the Caesars Tennis Classic at Boardwalk Hall last April, which drew 7,000 fans.

Skating Stars Here is the staggering list of ice-skating superstars that will be on hand either as hosts, skating stars or as honorees for their careers in skating:

“We had had numerous discussions with Harrah’s about their desire to bring new events, new entertainment to Atlantic City,” explains Solomon. “We agreed, thought it was a great idea, and we really felt the commitment there to build and rebuild business, to show that Atlantic City is more than a one-night town.” Fleming has visited Atlantic City several times in the past few years as a wine expert, representing Fleming Jenkins Vineyards & Winery. Fleming, in a phone interview from her home in California, says that she had been in Atlantic City for a skating event about 15 years ago when she was doing commentary for ABC Sports. She is also familiar with Boardwalk Hall from being a judge at the 1973 Miss America Pageant. Fleming is hosting the NBC broadcast with Mary Carillo and Kerrigan. As a skating commentator, she has to remain neutral, but is she looking forward to any particular skaters? “I haven’t seen Rudy Galindo skate in a long time and Nancy is skating,” she says.

• Evan Lysacek, 2010 Olympic gold medalist • Sasha Cohen, 2006 Olympic silver medalist • Nancy Kerrigan, 1992 bronze, 1994 Olympic silver medalist • Kimmie Meissner, 2006 World gold medalist • Dick Button, 1948, 1952 Olympic gold medalist • Brian Boitano, 1988 Olympic gold medalist • Scott Hamilton, 1985 Olympic gold medalist • Peggy Fleming, 1968 Olympic gold medalist • Sarah Hughes, 2002 Olympic gold medalist • Kristi Yamaguchi, 1992 Olympic gold medal winner • Paul Wylie, 1992 Olympic silver medalist • Todd Eldredge, 1996 World Champion • Rudy Galindo, 1996 US National Champion • Michael Weiss, three-time US National Champion • Tenley Albright, 1956 Olympic gold medalist and first American female skater to win • Tai Babilonia and Randy Gardner, 1979 World Doubles Champions • JoJo Starbuck and Kenneth Shelley, three-time pair National Skating Champions • Debi Thomas, 1988 Olympic bronze medalist • Richard Dwyer, 1950 National bronze medalist • Caryn Kadavy, 1987 World bronze medalist • Rosalynn Sumners, 1984 Olympic silver medalist • Linda Fratianne, 1980 Olympic silver medalist • Calla Urbanski and Rocky Marval, 1992-93 National Pairs Champions • Jenni Meno and Todd Sand, three time National Pairs Champions • Naomi Lang and Peter Tcherneshev, four-time National Ice Dancing Champions

“It will show the great history of skating with all of us together and should be an entertaining evening. I performed with Richard Dwyer in the Ice Follies and he is still performing in his seventies.” Asked if she was tempted to hit the ice on skates for an exhibition like this, she laughs and suggests that this was a bad time of the year to have to spend time getting back on the ice and training with running the winery, having three active grandsons and planning for the holidays. These skaters need to train, even if it isn’t with the same intensity as a competition. “These events are about keeping the image of what you did in the sport alive and well,” explains Fleming. “Nobody wants to go out there and not skate well. You want to deliver the best performance you can and still have fun with the sport.” Fleming also notes that skaters: “Are always judging each other, no matter if it is a competition or not.” Fleming, as a commentator on the sport for over 20 years, has seen some remarkable changes in skating. “I think it has evolved into a spectacular sport,” she says. “It is really tough doing the short program versus the school figures, because every element in the program counts so much. I think it’s more creative, much more difficult and it’s very competitive. We have a lot of talented skaters and I hope we can continue to nurture them and inspire them.” n

Trapped for ‘Hours’

A tale of extraordinary courage in Danny Boyle’s ‘127 Hours’ By Lori Hoffman

S

o m e d i r e c t o r s f i t themselves neatly into a box as an action director, an art house film director, a kids’ movie director or a horror film director. Director Danny Boyle has an extraordinary gift for all genres, finding stories he wants to tell that take the audience into a different realm of life every single time. But they do all share something — they all evoke an amazing compassion for humanity, whether he shows us drug addicts (Trainspotting), people chased by fast-moving zombies (28 Days Later), a seven-year-old who finds a bag of money (Millions) or street orphans trying to survive on the streets of Mumbai (Slumdog Millionaire). Now, with 127 Hours, Boyle has latched onto the remarkable story of Aron Ralston, a weekend warrior who loves to hike and explore the canyons of the American southwest. During a canyoneering trip in 2003, Ralston was descending into a canyon crevice near Moab, Utah when the 800-pound boulder he was using as a handhold began to slide down the crev127 Hours  HHHH Co-written & directed by Danny Boyle; rated R

ice, sending Ralston and the boulder in the same direction. While trying to protect his head, Ralston’s right hand and wrist were wedged between the boulder and the rock face and he was trapped. Lost down a remote canyon and having told no one exactly where he was going, he knew that if he were to survive, he would have to help himself. This is the story Boyle has latched onto

‘Isn’t that the movie where the guy cuts his arm off?’ Yes, this is that movie. this time, the story that has been summarized as, “Isn’t that the movie where the guy cuts his arm off?” Yes, this is that movie. If you assume that a man trapped and without any chance for rescue might make for a one-dimensional movie, you would be so wrong. Boyle and actor James Franco, the versatile star of such fare as Spider-Man, Pineapple Express and Howl — making his portfolio as diversified as Boyle’s — have teamed up to wring every bit of drama, fear, unbearable

pain and offbeat humor out of this compelling tale of courage and recklessness. Ralston’s saving grace is his ability to remain calm in these circumstances, even making a video blog of his predicament, including his delight at the warmth of the 15 minutes of sunlight he gets to enjoy every 24 hours. As an engineer and an experienced climber, he understands how much time he has and what will happen if he does nothing and waits for someone to find him. He tries to use his camping knife to dig his arm out, a tedious exercise that saps his strength with little progress. A series of pulleys to lift the rock off him doesn’t work either. Boyle ups the cinematic side of this drama by going inside Ralston’s feverish brain. He shows us Ralston’s dreams and hallucinations. In one phenomenal sequence, Ralston imagines a flash flood that causes him to be underwater in seconds. We are caught up in the drama, not knowing if it is a dream or reality. Eventually we get to the “arm” part of the story. The crushed limb is already useless and Ralston is logical in his deci-

sion-making process, a process that is even more excruciatingly painful because he must do the deed by breaking both the bones in his arm and rooting around the muscle, bones, tendons and nerves with a dull knife. The final decision to go for it is more horrifying than the blood letting in any horror film because you feel his agony. Some people have called the sequence too graphic — but that’s the point isn’t it? Boyle, working with a screenplay he co-wrote with Simon Beaufoy, based on the book Between a Rock and a Hard Place by Ralston, once again showcases his directorial versatility by taking a simple profile in courage and giving it a cinematic sheen that enhances the story without being excessive. He keeps it real, which is exactly the tone set by the exceptional performance by Franco. 127 Hours delivers much more than you might expect. n
