Joe Pesci

I read in last week’s Entertainment Weekly magazine that Joe Pesci will be starring with Helen Mirren in a movie called Love Ranch (to be released June 30th). Pesci and Mirren play husband-and-wife bordello owners. However, before Pesci joined Hollywood’s A-list set of actors he was a local entertainer and appeared regularly in Seaside Heights in the early 1970s. In particular, he was a regular at the VIP Restaurant & Lounge (the former “Wonder Bar” and future “Paddler’s Restaurant”) located on east Central Avenue between Franklin and Hamilton Avenues. (Enlarge the Spotlight on the Stars advertisement by giving it a left click on your mouse and then scroll down to the VIP Restaurant & Lounge.)
