JADE, ENTRE NOUS, DEMPSEY’S, MEMPHIS BBQ, PELICAN CAFE, MOREL’S, C & C BBQ MAKE 2008 THE SUMMER OF NEW RESTAURANTS W NIGHT LIFE Makeover, a devilishly delightful musical by scientist-turnedplaywright Mark Poncy of North Palm Beach, returns to the Cuillo Centre starting on Saturday, October 11. Described as a contemporary fairy tale where “Nip/Tuck meets Damn Yankees,” the show had several public readings at the Cuillo in 2007 and recently completed a month-long run at the Hollywood Playhouse. Local writers have hailed Makeover as “a melodic gift” (Miami Herald), “Electrifying (Sun-Times) and “A Keeper” (SunSentinel). A classic story of the struggle between good and evil, MAKEOVER is cloaked in a contemporary theme of plastic surgery gone awry. The message is a simple one: while people tend to be preoccupied with the fleeting fancy of appearances, it is what is beneath the surface that matters the most. Written by our own Mark Poncy of North Palm Beach, who holds numerous patents for medical devices that he invented ranging from tampons & surgical gloves to Intravenous catheter feeding & placement systems, Makeover features nearly twodozen songs that are eclectic in style and wonderfully clever. Poncy's haunting musical score and satiric lyrics always hit their mark, providing an emotional ride for the audience. The Cuillo production of Makeover will feature the same stars that did the world premiere run at the Hollywood Playhouse, including Jack James, Katie Angell Thomas and Don Stansfield. The director of the Cuillo production of Makeover is Zac Phillips, with Gail Shank as the production's general manager. See page 15 for ticket & showdate information! Chinese food is everywhere, but good Chinese food is not. One place that meets high standards is Yin Can Cook on Northlake Blvd, across from K-Mart and next to the Golden Jubilee Arcade. Prices are very low but quality is high - deals like Chicken Fried Rice with two whole wings and a soda for only $5.95! Yin Can Cook delivers free to the local area with their motto “You Ring We Bring.” See page 13 and try it - you’ll be surprised at the quality! I ran into a Publix cashier who told me she won a $100 gift certificate three days in a row at the

BARON BEATTY location since the Crazy Horse shut down. A gathering spot for Jewish singles & couples, the bar & restaurant are very active. See page 2 for info. Everyone on the south end of town is talking about how tasty the food is at C & C BBQ, located at Southern & Dixie and opened recently by Shawn Mills. A take-out style spot perfect for lunch, dinner or a mid-day snack, the service is quick and you’ll love the custom smoker that fills the air outside with that sweet BBQ smell of perfection. Everything is made southern style, on the premises and from scratch! See page 7 for info and try it today! It’s the time of year when dining at Mario’s is mandatory - Octoberfest! Owner Paulete Fields will put on a spectacular show on October 25th, but leading up to that day you can enjoy German, American & Soul Food specialties at this Lake Park landmark restaurant. A huge room with a grand piano, Mario’s has the longest Happy Hour in town, from 8AM to 8PM all drinks are 2-4-1. Lunch specials start at only $5.25, making it the spot to get hearty food at 1970’s prices. See page 13 for info. Mondo’s has announced a new Early Bird Dinner menu starting at $9.95! That low price includes fresh bread, entree, side dish, beverage & dessert! This deal is good from 3-6PM every day! Mondo’s also has the NFL Ticket, showing every pro football game in the nation on Sundays. This is a new Mondo’s feature this season so now is the time to call and reserve a table in front of your favorite team for this Sunday! See page 10 for all the latest Mondo’s specials. What a crowd of pleasure seekers at Pizza Luna last Saturday night. One fellow said to me “Why should I pay to get into a club when all these beautiful girls are sitting here.” Pizza Luna is home of the monster slice and due to its premier location on Clematis Street it is party central from 10PM to the wee hours on weekends. Plenty of sidewalk tables are available to people watch - see page 7 for info and don’t forget to stop by on Halloween night! Sushi Jo launched the all new “Thai Jo by Sushi Jo” at their PGA Commons Central location and word has it the first “Thai Jo” will open in City Place this December serving top rated Thai Cuisine. Of course it will have a sushi bar with the same high quality sushi we have known to take for granted at all the great Sushi Jo locations throughout the Palm Beaches. Sushi Jo Sat-

Golden Jubilee Arcade of Northlake Blvd! She said she plays the “Mars Fortune” game and it has paid off big for her. If you’re looking for some new fun this is the place! The minute you walk in the door you’ll understand how happy the Golden Jubilee Arcade is. Lot’s of regulars and local folks having fun for only pennies! It’s a social atmosphere with smiling faces and topnotch management that wants to have fun with the customers, not just serve them! There are too many specials, promotions, giveaways to list here - see page 13 for info. Fresh Catch Seafood in Northwood is now serving delicious live Blue Crabs! (after they’ve been cooked!) They cook them to order while you wait and don’t worry if there’s a line - it moves fast! You can also get Garlic Shrimp, Garlic Crabs and all kinds of “fresh off the boat” seafood - see page 6 for info! Want to surprise someone this Halloween? Order a specially designed (by you) Halloween Scary Cake from Tulipan Bakery! They will follow your instructions or create an original! This Halloween do something different and better - do it right at Tulipan! See page 2 for info! Congratulations to Champion Dancer & Paramount Ballroom owner Alec Lazo! Mr. Lazo has been selected as a judge for the world famous Ballroom Dancing National Championships in Las Vegas from October 16-19th. Hats off to Paramount student Mr. Vince Cestone, who has made the cut with his partner & instructor Elena Simonova and will compete for the first time in this huge contest. More big news from the Paramount Ballroom Beginning November 9th 2008 the Paramount Ballroom will open the house to the general public for dancing every Sunday night from 6-9 PM. Only $12 for admission to this party that will feature classy people, great music, light snacks, and lots of dancing fun. Patricia Transue will host the event, a steal of a deal on Palm Beach Island - see page 2 for info! Big news from the old Bianca’s location in Juno, Queens nightclub entrepreneur Johnny, formerly of Baxter’s on PGA fame, has taken over the space, it will be called The Palms more in next issue. So there’s lots to do in town, no matter your age or relationship status, find something in this column you’d enjoy and do it! Our economy needs you!

urday Night "Ladies Night" party is the best party happening now in Palm Beach Gardens, hands down. See page 10 and check it out! With Halloween coming up and landing on a Friday night this year, there will be many places to scare or get scared. The Sunset Grill is always a good frolicking crowd on Halloween as this dining Mecca gets scary with a theme night. Owners Matt Reber & Terry Marince will soon release the name of this years theme party. Until then I highly recommend trying the Sunset Dinners from 5-6PM Weds to Saturday nights! This is 3 courses of gourmet foods that would cost twice as much at other spots. The bar at Sunset Grill is always active during Happy Hour, especially on Fridays as the Northwood neighborhood crowd assembles to trade stories of the past week. See the cover and try that Sunset Dinner! Bonds Restaurant & Nightclub will be throwing another annual blowout Halloween party this year. With Moonfest the weekend before Halloween weekend, these 2 weekends are the time to reserve your table at Bonds and be in the center of all the Clematis Street action. You can call the number on page 9 and be certain you’ll have all the comforts of a billionaire at Bonds - just be ready to party with professional pleasure seekers all night long! I got a call from a professor at the University of Miami. She said that while visiting a friend in NPB and going out to dinner with 4 friends they decided on Nonna Maria restaurant on Northlake Blvd. The professor said she is a regular on the South Beach dining scene and was amazed by the food quality at Nonna Maria. “A dinner like that in South Beach would be $125 a person.” When the check came she grabbed it, easily willing to treat her friends so she’ll be spared having to pick up the tab when they go south In addition to our large selection of birds, cages, toys and to visit her. supplies, we now carry holistic and natural DOG and Owners Judy CAT FOOD including Eagle Pack and Orijen brands. & Francois serve top-shelf BIRDS Off BROADWAY is located in the historic food only - see Northwood Village of WPB at 411 24st Street their menu on between Dixie HWY and Broadway AVE. page 12 and come experience worldclass fare at outstanding www.birdsoffbroadway.com prices!

This place is for the birds... and dogs...and cats!

all Street may be suffering but new restaurants in town are pushing our economy out of the housing slump. No less than 7 new restaurants have opened this summer and all of them have professional food & beverage owners who know what they’re doing. When Jade opened on Northwood Road it was the third new spot in a 3-block area in WPB. Owner Wayne Devers has announced a new indoor dining room that will open this month. Jade has amazed locals with its changing menu and gourmet dishes. In downtown WPB, Dempsey’s is now open. Operated by Patrick Dempsey, this location right next to the Ultima Gym is serving everything healthy - smoothies with premium wheat grass, fresh wraps, salads and a full selection of health supplements. They open early from Monday to Saturday for breakfast see page 14 for info. On Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. Memphis BBQ & Blues Restaurant took over the former Tom’s Ribs location and has been a smash hit. The “Elvis Special” of BBQ Ribs, 1/4 Chicken, 2-sides and Corn Muffin for only $9.95 is an unbelievable deal. There is live music on Thursday & Friday during lunch & dinner! Memphis BBQ is known for outstanding catering and owner Ron Go Forth has been busy with events all over the county. See page 15 for info and remember the entire menu is available for takeout! Entre Nous has completed an extensive renovation of the former Mangia spot, changing the bar, entrance, dining room and more. This stellar restaurant has moved from it’s former Park Avenue location and will open in October. Call 561.863.5883 for reservations - you can expect first-class everything with a full liquor bar and complete wine list to complement owner/ Chef Jason Laudenslager’s magical menu. See page 15 for info. Opened a few months ago and drawing rave reviews from locals is the Pelican Cafe, owned by Mark Frangione and Karen Howe, originally from Greenwich, CT. They completely remodeled the old Cafe Du Parc space and added a new outdoor deck that will be perfect as the weather cools for breakfast, lunch or dinner which is served from Tuesday to Saturday, with Brunch served on Sundays. The Pelican serves a wide-ranging menu that offers Tuscan pizza, Lobster Ravioli, Eggs Benedict and everything in between. Check the back cover for info and make plans to see what everyone’s talking about. Morel’s Bistro & Pub has opened to big crowds, including a star studded event that drew national political figures to town. Morel’s is serving lunch & dinner with a Happy Hour Monday to Thursday where drinks are 2-4-1 from 4-6PM. Owner Moty Albini is a seasoned restaurant pro from the Boca area and is bringing back the lively times that haven’t been seen at this

PALM BEACH ARE BLACK VOTERS BEING PURGED

"

FROM FLORIDA VOTING LIST? umors are flying around Tallahassee that Republican operatives are

R

busy behind the scenes purging black voters from registration lists to create as many votes as possible going into the pile of “questioned ballots.” Regional operatives are allegedly being advised to use foreclosure lists to disqualify black voters on election day statewide claiming they don’t live in that particular district anymore. Most people believe a massive amount of first-time black voters will come out to vote, and some overseas bookmakers are using a 3-percentage point spread for “new minority voters” that they expect to show up, adding that to any recent poll information for betting lines. So when you see polls showing Obama ahead by 2 points - placing a bet on Obama overseas means 5 percentage points you’re giving up. Nationally, similar things are taking place. In Indiana, the drivers license rule was upheld by the Supreme Court. When you vote you must show a drivers license. But approximately 673,000 people, mostly older minorities, have no license. The replacement is a state I.D. card, which in rural Indiana means a long car trip and paying a fee. In Florida during the past two presidential elections the reports from upstate rural black areas about State Troopers setting up roadblocks and buses running late on election day were washed under the rug by Jeb Bush. Stay tuned. Rachel’s Strip Club in family fight..........Known in Florida sex industry circles as the “Smut Brothers” Charlie and Jim Veigle founded the chain Rachel’s and allegedly made millions. Older brother Jim, 63, has sued Charlie, 59, for allegedly stealing from him. They formed many businesses together, usually without contracts thinking blood is thicker than water. Then green got in the way. When it came time to cash out, Charlie said no deal. Jim said he’s owed half of everything. The judge said without a contract, the brothers had no partnership. The WPB location was sold, now owned by family outsiders. Jim got the club in Orlando that was in his name and Charlie left town and opened a skin bar in Pompano. The bitter fight started in 2006 and still allegedly goes on today, with Charlie supposedly telling a friend he’ll see Jim “broke, dead or in jail” before it’s over. In other strip club news it appears the well known Scores strip club in New York may be closing. After surviving Mafia infiltration by the Gotti clan, Rudy Giuliani's crusade against smut, IRS and FBI raids, New York State is set to deny renewal of their liquor license. A book by a former dancer, Ruth Fowler, claimed girls at the club “were treated like absolute dirt by managers” while prostitution was encouraged. And the beat goes on. Miami boy Jose Canseco may lose his street........Politicians are falling over each other to take down the street sign that says “Jose Canseco Street” in Miami. Miami-Dade County Commissioner Joe Martinez wants the street renamed due to Canseco’s admitted steroid use. At least Canseco told the truth, or some of it. That’s more than many others, like Mark McGuire did. The old political rule of thumb - never name a street after someone until they are dead. Sad tale from Mangia..........Three years ago life was good for Franco, owner of Mangia restaurant in NPB. He had moved his family from Atlantic City and his new restaurant had a line out the door on weekends. His three sons and his wife worked in the very busy new restaurant, it seemed to be one happy family. Things were so good Franco purchased a new yellow Porsche, which his sons would use to scout the club scene, where they were known as big spenders and great tippers. The old saying - When you’re on top there’s only one direction to go - started taking hold. Franco got sick, had an injury that hospitalized him. Things with his wife of 31 years went into a down cycle. Two of his kids left and opened their own restaurant in Stuart. Without the family energy the restaurant turned south. But by this August, Franco had overcome his illness and was in decent shape to return to work. When he returned, his wife Pina went home, packed up all her stuff and left town, without a word. She still has not spoken with him, according to Franco. Then he went to the bank and discovered that since January she had diverted all the Visa & Mastercard charges to her personal account, had not paid the rent, power or gas bills in full, paying just enough to keep everything running. Then the employees said they had not been paid for up to a month. Franco says he had no choice but to sell. So he found a buyer willing to pony up enough to pay his way out of debt. But, according to Franco the landlord refused to transfer the lease, even though there was less than a year left on it. Franco thinks someone badmouthed him to the landlord, turning him against him. A few days later when Franco came into work he was locked out, an eviction notice on the door. He lost everything including thousands in equipment, furnishings, a wife of 31 years and is left with ruined credit. I ate at Mangia several times, it was a great restaurant, I hope this guy finds a way to get back on his feet and start over somewhere. Florida Congressman’s son arrested on human trafficking charges.........Democratic Congressman Allen Boyd, from Monticello in the Panama City area which is the 2nd House Congressional District, is fighting for re-election after his son was caught smuggling in illegal aliens and busted for possession of Meth, weapons and other drug paraphernalia near the Arizona/ Mexico border. He was charging $3,000 per person for those willing to hide under plywood in his truck to get across the border. One of those pesky K-9’s foiled his ingenious plan and he went to the slammer. As usual with the privileged he was released into a drug rehab program after he claimed addiction.

7 7 7 ARCADE

GOSSIP

"What mainstream media won't tell you" By Hutton Carter, III

We lost two who were one of a kind.........A guy who spanned decades has left behind a lifetime of work that is hard to match. Born in Atlanta, Jerry Reed was the definition of a country boy. He never attempted to change. His last character role was in the film “The Waterboy” where he played Adam Sandler’s hateful coach. He starred in “Smokey and the Bandit” with Burt Reynolds. He was so hot during the 70’s he wrote and sang a hit song that went “When youR hot your hot, when your not your not.” Chet Atkins was his writing partner on several Grammy winning songs. Reed had respect in the industry as a great guitar player, singer, actor and songwriter. He was also a very country-style straightforward type - when asked what his motivation to continue playing 80 shows a year into his late 60’s was, he said “money.” One of the greatest wrestling names ever created has passed on. Killer Kowalski was one of the most hated wrestlers of all time. Six-foot-seven inches tall and 275 pounds, he was from the golden air of broadcast TV in the late 50’s when professional wrestling first became national. He participated in over 5,000 matches, many against the original “Nature Boy” Buddy Rodgers, who inspired Rick Flair to take up wrestling. Kowalski started off calling himself “Tarzan.” But after mistakenly kicking off “The Yukans” ear during a match, sending it rolling across the ring, he visited him in the hospital and a reporter saw him standing over his bed laughing. They were actually having a mutual laugh but the reporter filed a story with the headline “ Kowalski Visits Yukon in the Hospital and Laughs.” That led fans to call him a killer and the name stuck. Killer Kowalski loved telling the story of an old woman who came up to him after a match and said “I’m glad you didn’t get hurt” - then stabbed him in the back with a knife when he turned to walk away. Jerry Reed was 71, Killer Kowalski was 81. What they won’t tell you............While there were other contributing factors, insiders are saying that it was unregulated hedge-funds that caused the run on Wall Street investment banks. The SEC, Congress and the President have allowed these hedge funds to operate in secret and they took huge “short” positions against the firms that failed. Then they allegedly began rumor mongering to make certain the stock tanked. Now they are ducking for cover as Congress starts to cover its own rear with upcoming hearings.............. In case you didn’t know, there were no Lehman Brothers actually running Lehman, the last brother, Bobby Lehman, died and that left no Lehman family member with a management position in the firm, some Lehman employees said the environment turned into a “Brokers Gone Wild” atmosphere when Bobby passed away......... While the U.S. amps up a conflict with Russia, Secretary of State Rice was forced to admit in a foreign press conference that Georgia had fired the first shots in the fiveday war........The non-partisan GAO (Government Accountability Office) has reported that 2 out of 3 U.S. Corporations paid no income taxes from 1998 to 2005...........The U.N. has reported that there are now 925 million people on Earth suffering from “acute hunger” and they expect the number to reach 1 billion by 2009.........In these times it is interesting to recall the words of Denis Healey, former British Defense Secretary and Secretary of the Exchequer: “World events do not occur by accident: They are made to happen, whether it is to do with national issues or commerce; and most of them are staged and managed by those who hold the purse strings.” Have you heard about...........The local restaurant owner who had a loud, profanity filled fight with his wife in the middle of the dining room, in which he threatened to “drag her out by the hair” -when patrons objected he told them “We’re closed, everyone get the f**k out!” One customer showed his appreciation by smashing his glass against the wall on the way out. The restaurant was opened the next day..........That Dusty Springfield, who sang one of the all time great songs - “Son of a Preacher Man” had been a closeted lesbian her whole life (she died in 1999) finally will be outed in a new book due in November. The working title is “Dusty! Queen of the Postmods.”........ That actor Michael Douglass will play Liberace and Matt Damon will play his lover, Scott Thorson, who later sued Liberace for palimony when they split up, in a new flick about America’s most flamboyant piano man.......... Fidel Castro slept with 35,000 women in his life, “He slept with at least two women a day for more than four decades - one for lunch and one for supper” says a former Cuban official..........Tom Jones, now 68, is releasing his first new album in the U.S. in 15 years. Since his 1st hit in 1965 - “It‘s Not Unusual” Jones has sold 100 million records worldwide, Bono & Edge partner with him on 1 song.............Sandi Lansky, Meyer Lansky’s 70-year old daughter, has signed a book deal to tell all about her daddy. A prominent local attorney wonders whether she’ll do a chapter on Al Malnik, the local former attorney of Lansky’s with a massive ocean-front mansion near Delray who allegedly ended up with all Meyer’s gangster money...........The huge motorcycle gang war going on in California between the Hell’s Angels and the Mongols. The president of the San Francisco chapter of the Hell’s Angels, Mark "Papa" Guardado was allegedly shot dead in the street 1 mile from the Angels clubhouse by Mongols member Christopher Ablett. Over 2,000 Hell’s Angels from all over the world attended the funeral.........Local escort service girls that have been making daytime calls to a prominent sugar company building downtown, who they’re servicing in the building is still a mystery. Remember, Don’t repeat a word of this! It’s all on the QT!
