    WHO IS HE: David Spade became a star on “Saturday Night Live” in the early- to mid-1990s as part of a classic cast that included Adam Sandler, Chris Farley, Mike Meyers, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and Phil Hartman. His sarcastic sense of humor lent itself perfectly to the show, especially with his “Hollywood Minute” segment. In 1995 Spade starred alongside Farley in the classic comedy film “Tommy Boy” and a year later he reprised a similar role alongside Farley in the underrated “Black Sheep.” He starred in the television comedy “Just Shoot Me!” for seven years and in 2004 began starring in “8 Simple Rules.” Three years later Spade portrayed the role of Russell Dunar on “Rules of Engagement.” In 2010 Spade starred alongside Sandler, Rock, Schneider and Kevin James in the hit comedy film “Grown Ups.”

    WHO IS HE: After several years as a relatively obscure stand-up comedian, Bob Saget became one of television’s most recognizable stars thanks to his role on ABC’s “Full House” which ran from 1987 to 1995. Saget became even more of a household name as host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” which ran from 1989 to 1997 and paved the way for a host of other reality-based programs. However, Saget’s corny, clean-cut television image bears no resemblance to the raunchy comedian who performs in venues across America.

    WHO IS HE: Bill Medley is known for his tenure as a member of the Righteous Brothers, a duo formed in 1962 along with Bobby Hatfield. The Righteous Brothers’ first single was “Little Latin Lupe Lu” in 1963 and they soon followed up with even bigger hits such as “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’,” “Ebb Tide,” “Unchained Melody” and “You’re My Soul and Inspiration” Medley had moderate success as a solo artist charting with several country singles such as the hit “I Still Do.” In 1987 Medley recorded “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” as a duet with Jennifer Warnes for the “Dirty Dancing” movie soundtrack. The song became a No. 1 hit on the Billboard 100.

    WHO IS HE: In 1965, guitar virtuoso George Benson became the latest discovery of the late great John Hammond, a Columbia recording executive who was responsible for signing the likes of Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Billie Holiday and Count Basie. Benson’s initial albums for Columbia were soul and jazz oriented and helped cement his legacy as superstar jazz musician. The Pittsburgh native, however, refused to be pigeonholed and throughout his career went about exploring different genres including pop, contemporary and R&B, while still maintaining his stature as a guitar icon.

    1 Ducktown did Happy Hour before anyone. According to Ducktown Tavern's owner John Exadaktilos, no other entity in A.C. had happy hour until Ducktown announced in 2005 they were having it.

    When it comes to local watering holes, simplicity beats flashiness every time. Few things provide a more deeply satisfying experience than the combination of a reasonably priced beer in one hand, a 35-cent chicken wing in the other and a nail-biter of a football game on the TV. Caffrey’s Tavern in Forked River nails this classic American tradition from top to bottom.

    Comedy Clubs

    1 The Quarter is getting pump(kin)ed up. Many of your favorite bars and restaurants at The Quarter at Tropicana Casino and Resort are getting pumped for fall with a wide range of pumpkin and seasonal beers.


    In an area where every bar owner is bending over backwards attempting to cater to every whim of the summer tourist, it’s nice to know that there are still places that haven’t forgotten about the locals.


    Margate resident Teddi Fusco is living proof that, as Sinatra once sang, “Fairy tales can come true.” She’s served as a cast member for Disney’s “Broadway Revue,” toured with the national production of both “Evita” and “West Side Story” and spent time on Broadway’s rendition of “Beauty and the Beast.” For the past several years, she’s served as a soccer mom, choirmaster and entertained thousands of nightclubgoers throughout the Atlantic City area.

    These days, more and more live acts have been bemoaning the influx of DJ culture and its rising prominence on the stages and dance floors of South Jersey. Rather than crying about it, the duo known as Hand Over Fist has decided to do something about it. They’re fighting fire with fire and have infused cutting-edge DJ tactics into the traditional, live acoustical set.

    1. Learn some American history from Tun Tavern. The original Tun Tavern dates back to pre-Revolutionary War days.

    The name “Bobby Dee’s Rock ’N Chair” implies two things — there will be rock music and there will be at least one seat. Not the most ambitious of aspirations, perhaps, but achievable ones. And indeed the bar went 2-for-2 on these promises. Not a bad start.

    Bobby Dee's Rock n Chair

    1 The name is devised from one part wings, one part craft beer. Part one: The wings. Knowing that their customer would primarily consist of men, particularly football-watching men, the guys at Wingcraft in Tanger Outlet The Walk — brothers Nick and Antonio Ballias — developed a menu of 13 different styles of wings. Naturally, they have traditional, Buffalo blue and hot ’n honey style, but they also have finger-licking, lip-smacking wings such as roasted red pepper sriracha, chipotle BBQ and even Greek style — made with their mom’s own homemade tzatziki sauce. Order eight wings for only $8.99. Ask for extra napkins.


    Now that September is in full swing, you can be certain of a few things — the stores will become flooded with Halloween merchandise, the Eagles will begin another unsuccessful season of pro football and the Pitney Pub in Galloway will become flooded with Stockton students all looking for the perfect place to unwind for the night.

    1 For something daring, the Continental. If you love martinis, The Continental is the place for you.

A $5 happy hour is from 4 to 7 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays. Drinks include select beers, wine and some cocktails. Munchies include a vegetarian hummus platter and buffalo chicken meatballs.
