Useless Information VINNIE AND BETH CHIARELLA HIT A GRAND SLAM The food was terrific. Beth No surprise there. Vince Chiarella Chiarella can flat out cook Italian food. Everything you order comes out hot and delicious and you can tell it’s a Vince Chiarella creation. What was surprising was the atmosphere of the place. For such a large room, it had the intimacy of small group settings. Feng shui is the art of organizing space to maximize energy, and Beth, Mia and Vince have done a terrific job of doing just that. Beth Chiarella reminds me a little of a sassy Anne Zaberer (only much spicier) who was a local icon many, many years ago. The same energy and charm. The room buzzed with excitement yet there were many small enclaves where more privacy could be had. I get the same feeling when I’m in the Brown Room at Congress Hall in Cape May. When I mentioned this to Beth, she said that was their main objective . . . offer great food in a relaxed yet electric setting . . . where adults could spend a quiet evening or dance the night away. When in full swing, Gia’s will offer three bars and several separate dining venues. Can’t wait to see how the finished product looks and feels. Right now Gia’s has a great feel to it, comfortable yet buzzing with life. Kudos to the Chiarella’s . . . they‘ve done it again. The whole two block area on Pacific Ave. between Lincoln and Spicer is turning out to be quite the restaurant district with the addition of “Cattle and Clover”, an Irish bar and restaurant that is having a grand opening on St. Patty’s Weekend with a gala Block Party featuring the world’s largest “Shephard’s Pie”, the Soul Cruisers and 3 other Irish Bands. Don’t miss it!! Good things are happening to downtown Pacific Avenue and this is a perfect example of it.

DRIVING MISS DAISY . . . DRIVING ME CRAZY A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. ‘Careful,’ he said, ‘CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You’re cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They’re going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you’re cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don’t forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the Salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!’ The wife stared at him. ‘What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don’t know how to fry a couple of eggs?’ The husband calmly replied, ‘I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I’m driving.’ Most Men in AMericA

A drunk staggers into a church, enters a confessional booth and sits down but says nothing. The Priest coughs a few times to get his attention but the drunk continues to sit there. Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall. The drunk mumbles, “Ain’t no use knockin, there’s no paper on this side either.”
