Love: Esther Madie Jacobs & Benjamin Franklin Watts Sr.
Hello there Esther, 79, and Ben, 78, met in October 2007, waiting for the casino bus to Atlantic City. Esther was taking the bus frequently, often without ever entering a casino. "I love the Shore, I love the water, I love the sun," she said.
Headbands making a comeback
Politics and the fashion industry have more in common than you might think.
For starters, they're both cutthroat businesses populated by egomaniacs whose success depends on public opinion.
I know some longtime Haddon Avenue habitues, like my pal Paul, are having a hard time accepting the notion that Franco's Place, the no-frills panzarotti hall, has been supplanted by an upscale wine bar like Kitchen 233 that serves $18 appetizers and $55 glasses of vino.
I often find the beers on tap at the Iron Hill breweries to be, as at many brew-pub chains, predictable and safe. But Iron Hill has stepped up to another level of ambition with its new selection of special reserve beers. They come in 750 ml champagne bottles and are expensive (just under $20.) But Iron Hill's first-ever bottled beers are definitely worth a try.
