CAPE MAY POINT – The Red Store fell one vote short of the needed five votes to approve the expansion of a non-conforming use.
The Red Store was seeking a variance from the Cape May Point Zoning Board of Adjustment to make legal what was described as both a chef’s kitchen and a prep kitchen outside the main building. Additionally, they were seeking permission to create more indoor seating using the general store area in the event of inclement weather, including the winter season.
Owners Deanna Ebner and Lucas Manteca told the zoning board they were committed to maintaining a general store, but they were trying to keep their business viable in the off-season. Ebner said the general store business drops off after the rental/tourist season, and they would like to be allowed to move seating from the outdoor area to inside the store. The applicant’s attorney, Andrew Catanese, asked the board to approve 60 seats for the Red Store, whether they were placed indoor or out. Presently they have 28 seats in the indoor dining room, and another 32 on an outdoor deck located in at the back of the building.

CAPE MAY – If Shaun Eli and Karen Bergreen had continued on the routes they had started out on, life would probably have been a little more boring for both of them.
Eli, who lives in Pelham, N.Y., went to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and after graduation went to work in a bank. Bergreen graduated from Harvard and then went to the University of Minnesota Law School and became a lawyer.
Both of them decided they would rather be on stage telling jokes.
Eli is the founder of the Ivy League of Comedy, which works with 30 or 40 comics, not all of them from Ivy League schools.
“When I first started the group the goal was for it to be all comics who went to Ivy League schools,” Eli said, “but there are maybe only 8 or 10 comics who went to Ivy League schools.”

CAPE MAY – Cape May Stage transforms from a theater into a comedy club for one night only. On Monday, Sept. 8, at 8 p.m., the Ivy League of Comedy Night comes back for an encore performance.
Shaun Eli returns, but this time with a new headliner – lawyer turned comedian and mother of two boys Karen Bergreen. You’ll be rolling in the aisles and gasping from laughter in a night that can only be described as absolutely hysterical. It’s comedy night, done right.
A graduate of Harvard University and University of Minnesota’s Law School, Karen Bergreen was a paralegal, an associate at a law firm and a clerk before she decided to throw it all away for comedy. Now a mother of two small boys, Bergreen does stand-up in order to get out of the house.
