-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: The Mad Batter on Jackson Street inside the Carroll Villa<br />

Hotel. The Kulkowitz family has been serving breakfast, lunch and dinner<br />

for over 40 years. They also opened their new venture, The Cricket<br />

Club, in 2022.<br />

The drinks: We had the pleasure of our dear friend Mary Sexton<br />

working behind the bar when we arrived, so we grabbed a few stools<br />

and caught up a bit. Caiti, Nicole and Mary worked together for a couple<br />

years at Cabanas, so it’s always nice to see her when we stop in. We<br />

ordered a round of lemon-drop shots to celebrate our friend Jamie’s<br />

McDowell’s 32nd birthday to start and then kept things simple the rest<br />

of the afternoon. Dan had been craving a manmosa — orange vodka,<br />

Allagash White wheat beer, fresh-squeezed orange juice and champagne<br />

— so he sipped that while the rest of went for Surfside Peach iced<br />

teas and a Tito’s and sprite. We caught the end of the Phillies game on<br />

the TV across the bar and enjoyed our drinks while we waited — not<br />

very long — for our food.<br />

The food: Caiti mentioned The Mad Batter’s house nachos earlier<br />

in the day, so we went running. The mountain of corn tortilla chips<br />

topped with cheddar cheese, green onions, Pico de Gallo, fresh jalapeño,<br />

roasted tomato and chicken was shareable and had just the right<br />

amount of spice. Dan filled up on a cheesesteak and fries complete with<br />

onions, horseradish sauce and aged cheddar cheese. Jess and Jamie<br />

enjoyed some nachos with Caiti and Nicole, but also ordered chicken<br />

tostadas with pico, sour cream, avocado and salsa verde along with<br />

chorizo sausage paella.<br />

The takeaway: The Mad Batter is known for its brunch, but their<br />

lunch and dinner menus aren’t to be overlooked. They offer a variety<br />

of dishes from burgers and paninis to vegetable ravioli and filet. They<br />

also have a large vegan menu with plenty of options including seitan<br />

“wings” and vegan crab cakes. They are open daily for breakfast and<br />

lunch at 8am and dinner begins at 3pm.

Bird Droppings<br />

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

You may have heard that May 13 was<br />

the 40th World Series of Birding —<br />

the state-wide competition identifying<br />

the most species of birds in<br />

24 hours. The objective is to showcase<br />

the natural riches of New Jersey and<br />

raise money for bird conservation based upon<br />

pledges on team totals. Many conservation<br />

groups use the World Series as a fundraising<br />

platform including local organizations like<br />

the Wetlands Institute and Citizens United to<br />

Protect the Maurice River and its tributaries.<br />

Its raised millions of dollars over the course<br />

of its history.<br />

Participants come from across the United<br />

States. One participant even flew in from<br />

South Korea. Zeiss Optics, one of the event’s<br />

perennial sponsors flew in two corporate representatives<br />

from Germany and over 200 participants<br />

dined at the Awards Brunch at the<br />

Grand Hotel.<br />

Mid-May marks the peak overlap period<br />

between lingering winter residents like<br />

Brant and White-throated Sparrow, breeders<br />

like Orchard Oriole, and migrants like<br />

Bay-breasted Warbler that are just passing<br />

through. Typically, over 140 species are tallied<br />

by all teams. Yes! All in NJ, which is<br />

ecologically rich. In just three hours you can<br />

drive from Canadian zone woodlands in the<br />

north to a Coastal Carolina environment and<br />

never leave New Jersey. In the north, teams<br />

find breeding birds like Northern Goshawk<br />

and Yellow-bellied Sapsucker. In Cape May,<br />

there are Royal Terns, Chuck-wills-widow,<br />

Summer Tanager, and White Ibis.<br />

Many teams are choosing to compete not<br />

as full-state contestants but in the Limited<br />

Geographic category. In the LGA’s teams<br />

compete against an established par value<br />

which gives teams in urban areas, like Essex<br />

County, even footing against teams limiting<br />

their search to bird-rich Cape May. This year<br />

a Salem County team took top honors in<br />

this category. A Cornell-based team took top<br />

honors with a total just short of 200 species.<br />

Me? My friend Don Freiday and I competed<br />

as a Big Stay team, limiting our observations<br />

to birds seen or heard from the hawk<br />

watch platform in Cape May Point State<br />

Park. Our total of 138 was respectable but not<br />

enough to win. But the World Series of Birding<br />

is not about winning. As Woody Allen said,<br />

it’s about “showing up.” Anybody can play<br />

and I encourage every Cape May resident to<br />

join the fray next May. Go to the New Jersey<br />

Audubon or Cape May Bird Observatory website<br />

to learn more.<br />

Is Indiana Jones too old for new adventures?<br />

Does one more mission for Cruise<br />

seem impossible? When did summer<br />

become the season for overextended<br />

sequels? Memorial Day weekend is the<br />

not-so-unofficial start of the blockbuster<br />

movie season, and there is plenty of action<br />

and familiarity to go around! Here’s a preview.<br />

In addition to Jones and Cruise, how<br />

about a Barbie who walks and talks… and gets<br />

booted from Barbieland? Well, get ready. Next<br />

month, you can see Harrison Ford reprise his<br />

most beloved role at 80 years old. Then in July,<br />

Tom Cruise at 60 attempts his seventh Mission<br />

Impossible installment. That same month, the<br />

live action Barbie premieres.<br />

Look, I’m not complaining — in fact, I<br />

hope Ford and Cruise knock it out of the ballpark<br />

(to borrow from another summertime<br />

favorite). And what about Barbie? The trailer is<br />

hilarious with Harley Quinn star Margot Robbie<br />

as Barbie and Ryan Gosling as Ken. I’ve been a<br />

big fan of director Greta Gerwig for years. The<br />

films she’s starred in have been quirky and<br />

The Movie Column<br />

By arts columnist Tom Sims<br />

fun with some success. She’s directed only<br />

a few times, but they’ve gotten Oscar attention<br />

with three nominations for directing and<br />

writing. I’ve got high hopes! And I’m officially<br />

a “heart hands” fanboy of popstar Dua Lipa,<br />

who co-stars in this movie.<br />

There’s no shortage of superhero and<br />

action flicks this summer. Guardians of the<br />

Galaxy, Volume 3, is taking off already. Fast<br />

(and Furious) X is a fan fave but critics seem<br />

less impressed. I’m pumped to see the sequel<br />

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (the first one<br />

was outstanding).<br />

The Creator, an AI vs human sci-fi action<br />

film looks scary! Technically it doesn’t come<br />

out until September, but damn the trailer is<br />

amazing. Next month, The Flash swoops into<br />

theaters (he’s one of my favorite DC heroes).<br />

Ezra Miller reprises the role he started in 2017<br />

with The Justice League. Miller has been a favorite<br />

of mine since the quirky film City Island<br />

(2009). DC’s Blue Beetle, coming in August, is<br />

one of the zaniest superheroes.<br />

For the romantics, there’s yet another<br />

Greek wedding of the big and fat variety.<br />

Disney’s new live-action version of its classic<br />

The Little Mermaid has been getting rave<br />

reviews since last week’s premiere. The comedy<br />

They Cloned Tyrone is streaming on Netflix<br />

and looks hilarious. Whatever the movie, first<br />

or third (or seventh) in a series, there’s a lot<br />

of summer movies either streaming or exclusively<br />

in theaters. Let me know what you’ve<br />

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

The Activity Column<br />

Catherine Dugan’s guide to getting out there... this week, stock up for summer!<br />

Take a good look at your summer space.<br />

Chances are, the supplies you need for<br />

fun in the sun have run low. Stock up!<br />

Start with the big things — how’s the<br />

furniture holding up? The unofficial<br />

start of summer is also the unofficial start of<br />

garage sale season — maybe someone is selling<br />

the new kitchen table you need. Or maybe<br />

you can find outdoor furniture, rewoven beach<br />

chairs or repaired beach umbrellas. Garage<br />

sales are also a great source for children’s<br />

needs. Look for beach toys, sporting goods,<br />

musical instruments, puzzles for rainy days,<br />

family board games, even crayons. If you’re<br />

hosting a summer-long guest, like a niece<br />

with her first job, upgrade her space with a<br />

comfy reading chair or small lamp.<br />

Is there propane for the grill? Need a<br />

new water filter? Assess your oils, spices and<br />

condiments. Refrigerator space is always at<br />

a premium, but buy items like coffee, sugar,<br />

pancake mix, pasta, and clam juice. With a<br />

well-stocked cupboard, you can make dinner<br />

with a trip to the Lobster House fish market<br />

or a farm stand, saving you a summer afternoon<br />

in a crowded supermarket. Make an<br />

impromptu party with shelf-stable treats like<br />

popcorn, sprinkles and ice cream cones, cake<br />

mix and birthday candles for the Cancers,<br />

Leos and Virgos of your acquaintance.<br />

How are your sheets and towels holding<br />

up? You may be able to donate worn items<br />

to an animal shelter while you treat yourself<br />

to fluffy towels, perky pillows, and smooth<br />

sheets. Are there adequate cleaning and laundry<br />

supplies? Do you have an iron and ironing<br />

board? Are the batteries in your smoke and<br />

carbon-monoxide detectors fresh? Do you<br />

have flashlights and back-up batteries in case<br />

of a summer storm? Don’t forget the toilet<br />

paper, and maybe a fresh plunger.<br />

If company is coming, consider an air<br />

bed, along with ear plugs or eye masks for<br />

those who hope to sleep through the morning<br />

hubbub. Get an extra phone charger or two<br />

and keep a drawer of left-behind items like<br />

bathing suits, tee shirts and rash guards — the<br />

next guest may forget something. Stock the<br />

first-aid kit with bandages, antibiotic ointment,<br />

Benadryl tablets, stomach medicine<br />

and aloe. Don’t forget rubbing alcohol for<br />

sanitizing and for swimmer’s ear. Refresh<br />

your sunscreen supply — according to the<br />

Cleveland Clinic, sunscreen can last three<br />

years in a cool, dry area, but your beach bag is<br />

not a cool, dry area. Don’t forget an updated<br />

Cape May map and the latest issues of This<br />

Week in Cape May and Exit Zero.<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 niece is getting married this fall and<br />

we’ve already accepted the invitation to the<br />

wedding. Unbeknownst to my husband and I,<br />

our married daughter and her husband were<br />

also planning on a personal vacation trip this<br />

fall and had arranged for someone to watch<br />

our grandkids while they were gone. Well they<br />

canceled, so my daughter asked US to watch<br />

them. Normally we would, but the dates of<br />

their trip conflict with my niece’s wedding.<br />

I’ve asked her to consider changing the dates<br />

of her trip, but she’s unable (or unwilling) to<br />

try that. My husband thinks we should put our<br />

daughter first and cancel our plans and watch<br />

their kids. I see this as an obligation we’ve<br />

already accepted and promised my sister, and<br />

The Answer Lady<br />

Wise answers to perplexing questions<br />

we should honor it. What say you? — Torn Wife<br />

Dear Torn Wife<br />

The Answer Lady weighs in on the side of<br />

honoring your first commitment. It should not<br />

be an automatic imperative that grandparents<br />

are obligated to be at the beck and call of plans<br />

that their children have made that have gone<br />

awry. Would you have made such a demand<br />

on your parents? If you think you can take the<br />

kiddies to the wedding and secure someone<br />

to watch them while the festivities are going<br />

on, that might be a compromise. Barring that,<br />

changing everything seems a precedent you<br />

might not want to set. Discuss it with your<br />

husband over a refreshing cocktail at Fins.<br />

Dear Answer Lady<br />

I am 12 years old, and my parents still<br />

won’t let me have a smart phone. I even took<br />

them to Delaney’s with my babysitting money<br />

to plead with them. They still said no. I am<br />

very responsible, and I don’t understand their<br />

attitude. I am the only one in my class without<br />

one and I think I am suffering from PTSD<br />

because of it. Help me. — Stressed<br />

Dear Stressed,<br />

The Answer Lady can assure you that you<br />

do not have PTSD. She can also assure you that<br />

your parents are very wise. A smart phone is<br />

not always appropriately named. Why not<br />

pitch them for a flip phone? The less smart<br />

option might satisfy both the concerns of your<br />

parents and your need to communicate. In the<br />

meantime, think about living in the moment<br />

and not in the Tik-Tok version of a moment.<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 />

COOPER is an energetic boy who loves to<br />

splash around in the pool. He has excellent<br />

leash skills and is a people-pleaser. Cooper<br />

lived with children previously, but needs to<br />

be the only pet in his new home. He is cratetrained<br />

which will help with his transition. He<br />

is also up to date on all vaccinations, neutered<br />

and housetrained.<br />

KOBO is a three-year old hound mix who<br />

came to the shelter when his owner could no<br />

longer care for him. He’s a happy and healthy<br />

pup who loves people. Kobo has excellent<br />

leash skills and checks back in with his human<br />

often. He needs a slow introduction to other<br />

dogs and cats but will adjust fine. Please welcome<br />

this loyal companion into your home.<br />

DIXIE is a beautiful four-year-old redbone<br />

coonhound who came to the shelter when her<br />

owners couldn’t keep her. She loves to go on<br />

walks and has wonderful leash manners. Dixie<br />

can become vocal when she wants attention<br />

and is very curious. She has lived with children<br />

and is dog social, but a slow introduction<br />

with any cats is best.<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 />

GUCCI has a young face that will make your<br />

heart melt. She is a 10-month-old who came<br />

to the shelter from a hoarder house. Gucci was<br />

extremely emaciated and dirty. The shelter<br />

cleaned her up and she is adjusting to trusting<br />

people. Gucci would do well in a quiet home<br />

at first, but with no other dogs or children. If<br />

interested, contact the shelter.<br />

GRETA came to the shelter from a hoarder<br />

house. This 10-month-old girl was kept in a<br />

cage in the basement. She is one of the more<br />

positive and happy cats from the home, but<br />

don’t pick her up. She will need to be slowly<br />

introduced to being picked up with lots of<br />

patience and practice. Greta deserves a loving<br />

home — please contact the shelter.<br />

CANDY is a two-year-old girl who came to<br />

the shelter when her caregiver passed away.<br />

She was in need of extra TLC when she arrived<br />

but is now thriving. Candy would do well in a<br />

home with other cats and dogs — she will also<br />

take care of any unwanted mice she sees. She<br />

is a friendly and gentle kitty who is ready to<br />

find a loving home.<br />
