BEACH & PERRY, CAPE MAY<br />

Page 12 EXIT ZERO May 4, 2023<br />

-2pm<br />

Every week, the Exit Zero crew goes for lunch (or dinner or,<br />

maybe even on occasion, breakfast) at one of Cape May’s excellent<br />

dining establishments. Then we give you the skinny on<br />

what we ate, what we talked about (or some of what we talked<br />

about), who spat their drink from laughing too hard, who served<br />

us, who we bumped into and, you know, the general lay of the land.<br />

The place: Local favorite Mayer’s Tavern on 3rd Avenue in Cape<br />

May. After the bridge heading into town, make the right just before<br />

Tony’s Pizzeria and Restaurant and you’ll see it on your left across from<br />

Miss Chris Fishing.<br />

The vibe: The patio isn’t open yet for the season, so we snagged a<br />

table inside next to the bar on a busy Tuesday night. There were lots<br />

of familiar faces intermingling throughout the dining room and everyone<br />

was enjoying themselves. Keep the patio in mind once the summer<br />

approaches... it’s a great spot to catch the sunset while enjoying a bite!<br />

The drinks: Mayer’s is one of the only spots we know that carries<br />

a variety of orange wines. It pairs wonderfully with seafood, so we<br />

couldn’t resist. This is also a formal plea for more places in town to<br />

carry orange and natural wines!<br />

The food: Courtney and Krystina indulged in all things seafood.<br />

Starting off the meal was the dreamy smoked bluefish spread, fried local<br />

calamari with lemon mayo and local clams with fregula, tomato and<br />

Calabrian chile. We then moved on to their Raw Bar Tower packed with<br />

local and fresh options, including shrimp and oysters and their famous<br />

scallops. Lightly battered and fried until golden brown, the scallops are<br />

served with fries and citrus slaw and our choice of sauces — Krystina<br />

chose the remoulade and Courtney the tartar. We didn’t get dessert this<br />

time around, but we’ll be going back for their rotating crumble when its<br />

available — can’t miss it when you have the chance.<br />

The takeaway: Mayer’s Tavern is a Cape May classic with a<br />

reputation dating back to the 1940s when it first opened its doors.<br />

Father-daughter team Keith and Alex Laudeman brought some life<br />

back into the bar and restaurant back in 2016 and did quite a good job,<br />

keeping it a favorite of locals and visitors. Mayer’s is currently open<br />

Tuesday through Saturday from 4pm offering indoor and outdoor seating...<br />

or just grab a barstool and get sipping!

I<br />

woke this morning to the sound of<br />

White-throated Sparrows singing all<br />

around. Breeding in Boreal Forest across<br />

much of Canada and the northeastern<br />

US, the burley sparrow’s breeding range<br />

just brushes northwestern New Jersey but<br />

our state falls firmly within the bird’s winter<br />

range. Indeed these brush-loving birds are<br />

our dominant winter sparrow. Some adults<br />

are dull, muted, others in breeding plumage<br />

boldly patterned with bright white eyebrows,<br />

a white throat and a dash of yellow near the<br />

base of the seed-crushing bill. If you feed<br />

birds in your yard, you support one (and<br />

probably) more White-throated Sparrow.<br />

They are with us November to May.<br />

Why this column, now? Well, as our summer<br />

breeders arrive, winter residents depart.<br />

While I welcome these new arrivals as a sign<br />

that Spring is advancing, I rue the loss of<br />

those winter residents that brightened the<br />

darkness and cold with their animation and<br />

song. Shortly after first light, White-throated<br />

Sparrows sing their lament to “Old Sam<br />

Bird Droppings<br />

Dispatches from the nation’s birdwatching capital… by Seymore Thanu<br />

Peabody, Peabody, Peabody” as the whistled<br />

song is phonetically rendered. It’s a beautiful<br />

song, clear, unwavering and even courageous<br />

— sung by a tiny bird to face down the trials of<br />

the day. It’s a signal to a hostile universe that<br />

says “I live and have survived the night. You<br />

want a piece of this sparrow? Bring it on.”<br />

It must take great courage to be a bird,<br />

or great faith. Me? I have faith that these<br />

feathered emissaries of the natural world<br />

will always be among us. Birds survived the<br />

climate strike that wiped out their dinosaur<br />

king. Their feathered bodies, mobility<br />

and ability to find and consume seeds were<br />

the combination that defeated the climate<br />

induced depredation that doomed the dinosaur.<br />

Every morning, January through May,<br />

White-throated Sparrows celebrate this great<br />

victory with a song. Adding their voices to<br />

those of other heirs of survivors — American<br />

Robin, House Finch, Northern Mockingbird,<br />

Carolina Wren, Orchard Oriole and House<br />

Wren. While a sight-centric birder, it would<br />

be hard to face a world in which no birds sing.<br />

That sensory deprivation is precisely<br />

what made the title of Rachel Carson’s<br />

best-selling book “Silent Spring” so chilling.<br />

A spring unsanctified by the singing of birds<br />

is, to my mind, a horror beyond contemplation.<br />

And I am not audio gifted. Still I relish<br />

what I do hear and strive to learn more bird<br />

songs every year. It is a challenge, but one<br />

that better anchors you to the world you live<br />

in. So, listen up.<br />

Let’s put an end to a decades-long<br />

debate between two sides of geekdom.<br />

What is the stronger franchise — Star<br />

Trek or Star Wars? Before you dismiss<br />

this, please carefully consider. The fate<br />

of the universe hangs in the balance.<br />

The latest series in the Star Trek journey<br />

ended last month with the third and final<br />

season of Picard. The show was cosmically<br />

entertaining. Patrick Stewart reprises his role<br />

as Admiral Jean-Luc Picard. He’s retired now<br />

and living on a vineyard, but seems to attract<br />

all the intrigue a new adventure has to offer.<br />

He meets a woman who he realizes is the<br />

daughter of Data, the android commander<br />

on his team over three decades earlier. Since<br />

then, human-synthesized androids have been<br />

banned because several conspired to destroy<br />

a thriving civilization on Mars. The three seasons<br />

stand alone. Each one has rich characters<br />

(many familiar) and engaging storylines.<br />

Let’s get back to the grudge that needs to<br />

be settled. Trek vs Wars. Which started earlier?<br />

The original Star Trek show first appeared<br />

The Movie Column<br />

By arts columnist Tom Sims<br />

on NBC in September 1966, over a decade earlier<br />

than Star Wars. The original Star Trek lasted<br />

three seasons. That may not seem impressive,<br />

but consider that an expansive franchise grew<br />

from a short-lived series. That’s a testimony<br />

to the equity in its storytelling and characters.<br />

Star Trek was also more dedicated to diversity<br />

in casting than Star Wars. The show’s<br />

inclusive cast was innovative for 1960s television.<br />

It also created new titles and new<br />

directions starting in the 1980s... far sooner<br />

than the first live-action Star Wars series, The<br />

Mandalorian, in 2019. Trek had five shows by<br />

then: Next Generation (1987), Deep Space Nine<br />

(1993), Voyager (1995), Enterprise (2001), and<br />

Discovery (2017).<br />

And Star Trek is set in our galaxy (and<br />

others), so it’s more relatable as Earthbased<br />

humans work alongside Vulcans and<br />

Klingons. Star Wars is set in a galaxy far, far<br />

away. Trek had way more interesting tech as<br />

well — and had it first with sensors, shields,<br />

replicators, and transporters. Beam me up,<br />

Scotty! Sure, Star Wars has lightsabers and<br />

Death Stars… but so “me too.”<br />

Financially, Star Wars wins with a value at<br />

$50 billion ($10 billion for Star Trek). But who’s<br />

counting after the first billion? And Star Wars<br />

may be epic, but damn sometimes in my life, I<br />

need small bites of episodic.<br />

Anthony C. disagrees, he hasn’t seen any<br />

Star Trek. I’ve at least seen all the Star Wars<br />

movies. How about you? Tell me your favorite<br />

franchise at flixyoumissed@gmail.com.<br />

The Activity Column<br />

Catherine Dugan’s guide to getting out there... this week, do a little shopping!<br />

It’s a special occasion when the merchants<br />

of Cape May roll their goods<br />

out onto the sidewalk. There’s a festive<br />

atmosphere, and it feels like a return to<br />

fun, old-fashioned shopping.<br />

Once upon a time, the sidewalk was<br />

almost a part of the store. In the 19th century,<br />

it was often the merchant who constructed<br />

a sidewalk to provide space to take<br />

deliveries, and to offer a place for customers<br />

to pause, away from the busy traffic of<br />

the street. During this pause, the customer<br />

might taste a sample, see a demonstration<br />

of a new product, or be passed a handbill<br />

advertising a sale. The haberdasher or milliner<br />

or draper would have a chance to tempt<br />

the customer further into the store to make<br />

a purchase. Sidewalks weren’t a new idea,<br />

of course — the Greek city of Corinth had<br />

them by about 4000 B.C.E. Sometime in the<br />

Middle Ages, sidewalks seem to have disappeared,<br />

and pedestrians and wagons shared<br />

narrow roads, making shopping dangerous<br />

and dirty. Eventually wide, raised sidewalks<br />

became the mark of a sophisticated European<br />

city, allowing pedestrians a modicum of safety<br />

and offering some distance from the mud<br />

and manure of the streets. American cities<br />

caught on to the notion of municipally funded<br />

walkways, experimenting with wood, cobblestones<br />

and slate before concrete became<br />

commonplace. In 1970, Cape May created a<br />

pedestrian-friendly shopping area by turning<br />

three blocks of Washington Street into a mall.<br />

The Washington Street Sidewalk Sales<br />

are a tactile experience. You stroll and browse<br />

for the perfect combination of things you<br />

need, like shorts for visiting grandchildren,<br />

and things you want, like art. You can smell<br />

the soaps at A Place on Earth and the candles<br />

from Good Scents. Feel the fabric of the surf<br />

shorts you’ll wear 30 times this summer to<br />

make sure they’re not too stiff. Measure the<br />

sparkle on a birthday bracelet or get measured<br />

for the right bra. Try on sunglasses. Sample<br />

the cheese and the fudge. Play with a puppet<br />

that you’ll give to a niece or nephew, and find<br />

a clever card at Whale’s Tale. I’ve been lucky<br />

enough to find matching t-shirts for a family<br />

reunion, discounted hoodies for summer, and<br />

funky jewelry cool enough for a tween.<br />

Shop for the moment — spring shoes, a<br />

dress to wear to a June wedding, or a linen<br />

sport coat. Or, next season — Halloween decor<br />

and Christmas ornaments. The Washington<br />

Street Mall Sidewalk Sales run Thursday May<br />

18 through Sunday, May 21. Stores are open<br />

from 10-5pm, with most offering discounts.<br />

The Answer Lady invites inquiries from<br />

gentle readers on all manner of relationship<br />

quandaries, matters of the<br />

heart and ethics. If you’d like to send<br />

a query, write to info@exitzero.us. Or,<br />

simply sit back, enjoy a cup of coffee and contemplate<br />

the wisdom herein.<br />

Dear Answer Lady<br />

My father is getting married in September<br />

to a woman, whom I know does not approve<br />

of my choice of a same-sex partner. I know<br />

the invitations insist that plus-ones are only<br />

permitted if married. We are not married but<br />

what if we were? We have lived together for<br />

four years and it’s my father’s wedding, not<br />

some distant cousin. My father has shown only<br />

kindness to my partner. Please do not advise<br />

that I speak to him about it. He is completely<br />

gobsmacked by the woman who is 15 years his<br />

junior. To go or not to go? — Veritas<br />

Dear Veritas<br />

The Answer Lady assumes your partner<br />

does not have a strong opinion either way.<br />

We propose the question is — to irrevocably<br />

The Answer Lady<br />

Wise answers to perplexing questions<br />

fracture your relationship with your father or<br />

not? If yes, your stepmother wins. How about<br />

you attend the wedding but beg off attending<br />

the reception. Make your point subtly, but let<br />

your father know he is loved. Before the big<br />

day, invite him to join you and your partner for<br />

dinner at Oyster Bay and enjoy the moment.<br />

Dear Answer Lady<br />

Everyone in my family is angry with<br />

me. My daughter won a spelling bee and<br />

worked really hard — I’m so proud of her.<br />

Well, the teacher gave ALL the contestants<br />

a trophy. I was livid and had words with her<br />

afterwards. She gave me that “everyone in<br />

her class is a winner” nonsense. Then why<br />

didn’t EVERYONE spell aficionado correctly?<br />

According to my daughter, her father and<br />

older sister, I embarrassed my daughter who<br />

won. I say the whole thing diminished her<br />

achievement and encourages kids to not work<br />

as hard. Why strive to achieve if everyone is a<br />

winner? One day these “winners” are going to<br />

realize that is not the case. — Angry Mom<br />

Dear Mom<br />

Your point should have been expressed<br />

discreetly to the teacher. A one-on-one<br />

with your daughter also would have been<br />

wiser. Now, take your daughter to Uncle<br />

Bill’s Pancake House. Tell her how proud you<br />

are of her and how sorry you are that your<br />

“enthusiasm” clouded her joy — which it did.<br />

As for the teacher, humiliating educators is a<br />

no-no. Perhaps a gift certificate to Uncle Bill’s<br />

with a note of apology. Next time, breathe.<br />

• Cut your shower time and use cooler water<br />

• Rinse and Recycle all that you can<br />

• When you can, ride a bike or walk<br />

• Be respectful of our trees<br />

• Find local farmers markets and shop there – it’s fresh and fun<br />

• Carry litter from the beach and use containers provided<br />

• Dry towels and clothing on a clothes line when possible<br />

• STOP idling your car<br />

• Turn off lights when not in use/needed<br />

• Use LED light bulbs and unplug electronics when not in use<br />

• Grow your flower or vegetable garden with plants that attract bees<br />

and butterflies, and require less water<br />

• Tread lightly – explore local nature centers and trails<br />

• Build responsibly – Support Green Energy!<br />

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal<br />

Three beautiful dogs from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 609-465-8923<br />

FISHER was brought to the shelter as a stray<br />

and was very scared and confused at first. He<br />

is treat motivated, making his training progress<br />

much easier. Fisher enjoys walks and has<br />

excellent leash skills. He is a sensitive boy who<br />

would do well in a family with older children.<br />

Fisher has the potential to be a wonderful<br />

companion.<br />

GATSBY is a purebred, two-year-old Rottweiler<br />

whose owners were unable to care for<br />

him. He knows many useful behavior cues and<br />

loves to play in the yard. Gatsby is still young,<br />

so he needs to work on his youthful, impulsive<br />

behavior. He would do best if adopted into a<br />

home with no other pets, knowledge of his<br />

breed that would continue his trianing.<br />

CAPTAIN is an adult miniature Saint Bernard<br />

whose owner could no longer care for him. He<br />

is adjusting to the noisy shelter, but prefers a<br />

quiet home. Captain is very low energy and<br />

loves to snuggle and go for walks — he has<br />

excellent leash skills. He needs a slow introduction<br />

to other dogs, cats and children, but<br />

would fit very well in a loving family home.<br />

Enrich Your Life... Adopt An Animal<br />

Three beautiful cats from the Cape May County Animal Shelter and Adoption Center... call 609-465-8923<br />

BLIZZARD is about six-to-seven years old<br />

and came to the shelter as a “feral cat,” but has<br />

turned out to be nothing but a sweetheart. He<br />

loves the women in the shelter, but is intimidated<br />

by men and new faces. He’ll need some<br />

time to adjust, but Blizzard would do well in a<br />

quiet home without children. If interested in<br />

this boy, contact the shelter.<br />

YODA came to the shelter with her housemates,<br />

Kitty and Cutlet. She is a beautiful Siamese<br />

mix who is very chatty and will never let<br />

you forget she’s in the room. Yoda prefers to be<br />

handled on her own terms but loves affection<br />

when she’s ready for it. She is up to date on all<br />

her vaccinations and spayed. If you’d like to<br />

meet this sweet girl, contact the shelter.<br />

LIZA came to the shelter when her owners<br />

moved out and left her behind. She lived<br />

outside and was fed by construction workers<br />

next door. They contacted animal control once<br />

their job was finished, which led her to the<br />

shelter. She’s in great shape despite her past<br />

and just needs to put a little weight on before<br />

joining a new loving family.<br />
