I have always been intrigued by the paranormal. To me, it just seems impossible that when we die, that’s it. I believe that we all have energy that lives on beyond our physical being. Some people refer to this energy as different things such as ghosts, spirits, a haunting…whatever the term, I believe it exists. To what degree however, is a whole different story. There is so much about the supernatural world that we just don’t understand and especially during this time of the year, we are all reminded of the possibility that spirits could indeed exist.
Because of my interest in this topic, our Editor and Chief here at the Out On The Town, Mike Vagnoni asked me if I would be interested in doing an interview with an organization in Philly called Olde City Paranormal (OCP). Of course, I jumped at the chance to learn more about what they do. OCP is a professional paranormal group whose main objective is to help educate people that may be experiencing unexplained activity in their homes or place of business. Rather than feed into the stories, OCPs goal is to find a logical explanation for what some people may be experiencing. To do this, OCP uses the same type of equipment you see on popular TV shows, such as EMF Readers, infrared cameras, motion detectors and K-II Meters. OCP does not charge for their services. The members of OCP are every day, working class people who strive to give their clients the answer to the question, “Is this place haunted?”
I contacted the founder and head ghost hunter, John Levy to discuss exactly what they do. John, who is also a Philadelphia police officer explained to me that it is very important to the group to try and provide some sort of help, especially to families that have been experiencing “unexplained” phenomenon in their home. They have done many investigations and each one is handled completely different, depending on the situation. John said that many things people may believe to be paranormal are often easily explained. For instance, exposure to electricity often imitates the “eerie” feeling one may get when entering a room or can even play a part in optical illusions, John explained. A home they have explored in Mayfair has had them back a few times; still with no real logical explanation of what the family is experiencing. “The kids have seen dark figures in their rooms, the house is always cold and during our investigation, we witnessed a shadowy figure move from side to side, completely blocking out the kitchen window.” They were unable to recreate this activity or provide a logical explanation as to what it could be. The team will be going out again soon to try and debunk what everyone has experienced, but so far no luck. Could this home be haunted? Do ghosts really exist? Since they had another investigation coming up at the Absecon Lighthouse in Atlantic City, John invited me to come along to experience what they do.
There is quite a bit of history surrounding the Absecon Lighthouse. The structure was built in 1857 in Atlantic City’s inlet section, under the supervision of Army engineer George Gordon Meade, who later went on to fame as the Union General who won the Battle of Gettysburg. The decision to build the Absecon Lighthouse came because of the many prior shipwrecks that caused a significant amount of deaths along that particular area. Because of this, the inlet was eventually was given the name, The Graveyard Inlet. Many who have witnessed activity at the lighthouse do not believe that only one soul haunts the structure, but rather several and among the list is a British soldier from the Revolutionary War period. Several people have spotted a soldier in uniform on top of the lighthouse, in his spotless red and white uniform and musket in hand. Why would a British soldier be haunting the Absecon Lighthouse? Well, it could be the fact that in 1779, a whole ship of British soldiers perished in that same vicinity. The King’s troop transport ship, Mermaid, was en route to New York from Nova Scotia, when their ship was knocked off course by a raging snow storm. The ship crashed on a sandbar, killing 145 soldiers and crew members. Is it possible that the British soldier is there trying to warn others of a death so grim?
On our way down to the Absecon Lighthouse, I was a little nervous but excited at the same time. I wasn’t sure how I would react if I actually saw something with my own two eyes. Knowing me, I would scream like a little girl! Luckily, my husband Rick, who agreed to come along, kept me calm. First, we decided to stop at the Atlantic City Bar and Grill, which is owned by our friend Gino Garofalo, for dinner. The lighthouse was just a few blocks away on S. Rhode Island Ave, so we stayed there until the OCP Team called to tell us they had arrived. When we got to the Lighthouse, it was still day light. I had researched some of the tales prior to heading down and according to the records, strange things have been happening at the lighthouse, dating back to 1905. The first account of many years filled with tales of paranormal activity, was of one lighthouse keeper who claimed to have spotted the infamous Jersey Devil at the very top of the tower. Since then, employees and visitors have experienced things such as eerie laughter coming from the lighthouse, the scent of pipe and cigar smoke, unexplained footsteps, doors opening and closing and even partial apparitions have appeared.
After reading about some of the stories, I was ready to experience it all with an open mind. As the crew was setting up their equipment, Rick and I walked the 248 stairs to the top of the lighthouse, taking pictures along the way. When we first entered the lighthouse from the main structure, the air immediately changed. The best word I can use to describe it would be “airy” but not in the sense that you may think. It felt as though air move all around and sort of enveloped me. As we climbed all 248 steps, I still felt this air around me. “It’s an old, round, cement building that probably has areas where air and wind can wisp through the structure,” is what I kept telling myself. It did not feel heavy or threatening in any way, but it was definitely there the whole time. Onward and upward we climbed until we reached the top of the lighthouse. The views of Atlantic City, on such a beautiful and clear night were quite spectacular. We sat there for about 30 minutes, walked outside along the deck that surrounded the lighthouse and as we came back in, it was very quite. Just then, I heard a strange clanking sound, which seemed to be coming from the landing just below us. I walked half way down the steps and looked to see if anything was there and I saw nothing. I went back up to the observation room and looked out the window, and the whole team was standing outside at that moment. It was then that I realized that other than me and Rick, the lighthouse was completely empty. We walked back down the 248 steps and I told one of the team members what we heard. They told us that this is one of the sounds that people often hear and no explanation has ever been found.
The team had all of the cameras set up in some of the active hot spots of the lighthouse. I had a Zoom digital recorder with me and was ready to explore. We formed 2 groups; I was on one team and Rick was on the other and wouldn’t you know it, my team was going back up to the top of the lighthouse! So I again began my climb, all the way up the 248 steps. My legs were like jello by the time I got up there! I don’t know how those lighthouse keepers did it. Heck maybe that is what killed some of them! I was lucky to be with the team leader and co-founder, John Levy and investigator Glenn Orwan. As we sat along the cold and rounded walls of the observation room, I tried to think of what it was like for the lighthouse keepers. It seemed to me it would be a lonely life, sitting up there, alone in that perch waiting for ships to come by. Lonely or not, this was a very important job and I imagined the men who would have been there protecting the inlet and the sailors who counted on them. At this point, it was dark outside and all the lights were off. We were sitting in the dark, inside a structure with documented stories of a haunting and I thought to myself “Am I insane?!” John began a sort of dialogue to help draw out any spirits, just like you would see on any of the TV shows. I also chimed in, which was kind of cool because just as I said, “Hello, my name is Krista and I came here to learn about you today,” a slight shadowy figure appeared to the right of my line of site. I stopped and looked right at John and without saying a word; he said “I saw it too.”
We stayed in place for about 45 minutes and then decided to make our way down, staying in constant communication with the other team members via walkie talkie. John and I started down the spiral stairs when one of the other team members radioed us, asking us to stay put. They had also spotted a shadowy figure and they had it trapped between us and where they stood a few flights down. Not even 2 minutes went by when we heard someone yell “What the hell was THAT???” John radioed down to see what happened and Gary (one of the team members) who was wearing a baseball cap had the cap knocked off his head! He was clearly shaken, as we went down to where they were standing. Once we were all down on the landing, the shadowy figure they saw was gone.
My team’s next task was to go outside to the oil house, where the keepers used to gather to smoke their pipes and cigars and drink their hooch. One of the members carried in a contraption, that he called a “ghost box.” We all sat inside on the floor of this dark and old stone building, with this ghost box in the center. We were told that the ghost box is used as a way to communicate with the spiritual world. It is used for linear sweeping of the AM or FM bands to form “white noise.” If you have ever seen the movie White Noise, then you have an idea of what I am talking about. The purveyor of the ghost box was supposedly a young man by the name of “Chris” who was believed to be an ammo runner in the Revolutionary War. Chris was gruesomely decapitated while running ammo to the next site. Glenn Orwan, one of the investigators was leading the session and began to ask Chris questions. We were amazed that every time Glenn or any of us asked a question, we did get a relevant answer. In fact, as we sat in the room, we kept hearing someone say “Steve? Steve. STEVE” This went on for several minutes. Co-founder and Tech Manager, Steve Rotondi, who was in the oil house with us at the time, got very emotional as we kept hearing, “Steve. Steve. Steve. Steve?” After a few minutes of this, he had to leave the room. Later, he had explained that his Uncle who had just passed away would always call his name, several times in a row, just like that to annoy Steve. Glenn and the rest of the team, continued to ask questions and we kept getting answers. We got to a point where so many voices started to come through that it all sounded jumbled, so we decided to stop. Just then, the room became very cold, which was quite strange, considering there were several people in the 25’ x 25’ room for about 45 minutes. If anything, it should have warmed up. It was just then; I got a whiff of, what certainly smelled like a pipe. It was very strong at first, as if someone in the room was smoking. It only lasted about a minute and then it was gone.
The stories that have been told about the Absecon Lighthouse are not the kind of stories you hear of some other places that warn of impending doom for anyone that enters. It is believed that whoever or whatever still resides here is more of a residual type of energy, rather than an intelligent haunting. There was definitely a light feeling there but not something that would be scary or evil. The activity that I witnessed, as well as some of the other team members, certainly validates what others have seen, but I personally do not think anyone needs to be frightened about going inside. The Absecon Lighthouse is a part of the rich history of that inlet of Atlantic City and is one of the oldest lighthouses in the US. It is intriguing and quite interesting and I would recommend exploring the lighthouse to just about anyone who can withstand the climb. The lighthouse is open for all types of events in the summer such as Full Moon climbs which correspond with the calendar’s full moons, themed events, pizza parties and even sleep-overs for scouts. On October 30, they will be hosting “Ghost Stories & Lighthouse Climb” where you can visit the Absecon Lighthouse for the “true” ghost stories that prompted a visit from Sci-Fi’s popular show, Ghost Hunters! For a full description of events, as well as all the stories about the lighthouse, visit their site at www.abseconlighthouse.org.
I want to take this opportunity to thank the members of Olde City Paranormal, John Levy – Founder/Lead investigator, Steve Rotondi – Co-founder/Tech Manager, Bill Fritz – Assistant Tech Manager/Investigator, Michelle Smith – Case Researcher/Investigator, Laura Rotondi – Investigator, Glenn Orwan – Investigator and Gerry Colon – Investigator. We had a great time learning about the paranormal, and what OCP does to help people. If you think you have some sort of paranormal activity in your home or business, do not hesitate to contact OCP by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They will help you get the answers you seek.

As I woke up to the alarm clock playing “In My Life” by the Beatles this morning, I laid in bed with a smile until the song was over. Listening carefully to the words, I could not help but think how much feeling John Lennon put into the lyrics. In fact if I am not mistaken, this is one of the few songs John wrote that he actually liked. The words of this song have special meaning to me because it reminded me of how very blessed I am to have such wonderful people in my life. Many of them I have met through playing music in one way, shape or form, and I hold some really close friendships near and dear to my heart as a result. Music is such a wonderful way to bring people together and so much can come from it. I spend a lot of my time going out listening to live music when I am not gigging myself, and there’s nothing better than watching a band who really puts the effort into not only their playing, but also into the subtle nuances that set them apart from everyone else. In the case of cover bands, it’s hard to be different than the band playing down the street. But there are certain bands that try and one of them is the band we are featuring this month, Eleven Eleven.
Eleven Eleven first got together in 1992 as an original band while the members were all still in college. Playing mostly at frat parties and local original venues, they quickly developed a name for themselves. The band released their first album in 1994 and this led to many great opportunities, including a 5 week tour in London, England. They enjoyed a good amount of success as an original band, having 6 national releases with their last two breaking the CMJ Top 200. The release “Head” was #179 and “The Unlovable EP” was #17.
As their ambitions grew, the band decided to start playing some covers to help fund what they wanted to do with their original music. They starting mixing cover songs in with their originals at shows and in 1998, they toured nationally in support of their 2004 release “Head” opening for such bands as Phantom Planet, Echo and the Bunnymen, The Thrills, and Dave Gahan of Depeche Mode.
Eleven Eleven is now one of the most talented bands in the entire tri-state area, still playing both covers and originals. Their recent sponsorships by Budweiser and Twenty Two Vodka are a testament of their talent, as well. They play in some of the biggest and best rooms, from Boston to Key West, focusing on the crowds that come to see them. Lead vocalist and guitar player, Jeff Giuliani explained “Our only concern is that everyone has a great time and wants to come back again and again”. The band is very approachable and will always involve the crowd in what they do. Jeff told me, “We like to engage the crowd and play to them. They sing along, and sometimes jump on stage to “help” us sing. It’s a very fun and social evening and quite a different experience from watching just any other band.”
Eleven Eleven’s set list caters to the whole crowd and they change things up a lot. “You never know how a night is going to go until you are in the throes of it, so we like to make sure we are playing what the crowd wants to hear,” says Jeff. “There is no dead air. I believe dead air is the kryptonite to any cover band.” The band plays a wide variety of music including Tom Petty, Journey, The Cure, The Killers and Kings of Leon. They also do an all 80’s tribute every now and then.
These guys are a lot of fun, with no inflated egos and they are certainly not afraid to poke fun at each other. Having a good time at all costs is their mantra. They aren’t trying to be rock stars and they have no pretentions about being cover band rock starts either. They just want everyone that comes to their shows to leave fulfilled and maybe a little tipsy while marking their calendars for the next Eleven Eleven show!
Speaking of Eleven Eleven shows, you can catch them every Thursday at RiRa at the Quarter in The Tropicana in Atlantic City from 11:15 pm – 3:00 am. To get more information on the band and to see all the great places they play, please visit their website at www.eleveneleven.com. Big thanks to Jeff Giuliana for doing the interview and to the rest of the band, drummer Rich Franchetta, bass guitarist Steve “Stebs” Solof and lead guitarist Mike Donato. All of us at the Out On The Town wish you continued success!

Of course I have been to Chickie’s & Pete’s lots of times and always have a great time! So when Mikey V. asked me to do a dining out at the Boulevard location in NE Philly-I was very excited. I finally was gonna try “Lisa’s Blonde Lobster Pie” (White Lobster Pizza)! Can you imagine? Big chunks of lobster meat baked on a white pizza- it literally melted in my mouth with each bite! It’s Bon Jovi’s favorite pie and now its mine! Hahaha! It was everything I dreamed of and more!
And that’s not all! First and foremost, the staff there was absolutely hands down wonderful. Friendly, personable, and can I say….I was treated like a Queen- and so was my guest! As soon as we were seated we were met by Jim, Julie and Joanne…but honestly I have never had anything less than great service. We started out with their soup at just $5.50 each. My guest had the Crabfries Bisque….a cream based soup with dices of potato, carrot, bacon and it was topped off with their World Famous Crab Fries. She picked the right soup for herself- cause the one I chose was the Seafood Chowder and it was off the hook (so to speak). It was a tomato-based soup with spices, big cuts of red potatoes, jumbo shrimp, baby clams and mussels. Good to the last drop!
Because their menu has so many wonderful choices, we found it difficult to decide what we wanted to try. So we asked for small samples of their dishes but Chickie’s & Pete’s don’t do anything small. They brought dish after dish of huge portions of some of their favorite new items and classics! Of course we could not resist their World Famous Crabfries served with 2 sides of their creamy cheese sauce! Then came the sandwiches-all made with fresh ingrediants and home-made Italian rolls. Chickie’s Cutlet Italian-this sandwich priced at just $7.00 was fantastic and so delicious. The lightly breaded chicken breast cutlet was cooked to perfection! It was topped with melted provolone cheese and roasted red peppers. It was simply tantalizing.
Next sample…..mesmorized by the name “Magooby”, I knew we just had to try this! Filled with pickles, onions, crab fries, melted cheese and shrimp all on one sandwich ($7.00)-its cold and hot at the same time. And yes it is very “ma-goowy” so get extra napkins! It is worth every bite. So on to the next “daring” selection…Lobster Cheesesteak ($13.00). Yes, I said Lobster, and it’s the real thing. Fresh chunks of lobster meat on top of Philly’s famous sliced beef sirloin with creamy cheese sauce. And the consensus is …it’s an aquired taste. My guest liked it wit cheese I- wit-out! After tasting the left-overs, my daughter’s opinion was “It’s great with ketchup”. You will have to decide for yourself! Then our wonderful server enticed us into trying their Classic dish- a heaping bowl of Mussels in their (Nationally Acclaimed) Red Sauce ($11.00). The sauce is fantastic; great for dipping the bread. The mussels were delicate and soft with just the right seasoning! No wonder Chickie’s & Pete’s Mussels are Award Winning (South Philly’s People Choice Award 6 years in a row!)
Barely able to finish to completion- any of the servings sent to us, the staff happily wrapped up the leftovers for my guest and I to enjoy probably for the rest of the week at home! While dining we met several other diners who were also very happily engaged in their food, the sports game of the day, and simply enjoying a day out at Chickie’s & Pete’s. For locations throughout Philly and New Jersey check out their website at www.ChickiesandPetes.com.
**Although their Crabs made Chickie’s & Pete’s famous-they offer so much more! Check out their newest baby-Ultra Modern-at Parx Casino! And oh how its grown! Now Parx and Packer Ave. locations have a new game room & lounge “PLAY2”, an interactive sports bar. For the ultimate video game experience you can rent a private gaming room for just $25 an hour (4-6 guests) or $40.00 an hour (6-10 guests). There is also a V.I.P. room for up to 25 guests. For more info. please visit these locations and have some FUN!

. She likes her hair short and spikey. Christine can be found over at the Red Stallion in Warminster every Monday
doing her shift from 10 am to 6 pm ( but she always there till’ about 8pm) and has a great fan base of customers that come to see her and experience her outgoing and friendly personality. ” I’m a people lover” she says. ” I really enjoy meeting the customers and I crave that. In turn, the people that come to the bar show their love for me”. It is a beautiful thing and is one of the many reasons why I like being a bartender” Christine says, with real meaning in her voice. She has been tending the bar now for the last 3 years and has worked in other bars in the Warminster area. Christine is 32 years young and proud of it.
HOBBIES: She likes NASCAR and of course all the Philadelphia sports teams. ” I like the Phillies and the Eagles. “You can say that I am a die hard fan and love going to watch the games in person”
FAVORITE RADIO STATION: 94.5 WPST – She like’s the variety of the music they play.
We had the chance to meet up with Christine on a Tuesday night. She was just out with some friends and hangin’ at the Red Stallion with Mark and Betsy. When asked, if she would like to be our OOT Bartender of the Month, she said “Bring it on – this has made my day” Well you can make her day by checking her out when she does her Monday shift at the Red Stallion.
