Of all the iconic foods one could indulge in at the Shore - hot boardwalk donuts, fresh seafood, pizza, saltwater taffy - corned beef and pastrami probably doesn't make the obvious list. But that's likely because the new Margate branch of Cherry Hill's classic deli, the Kibitz Room, is still only a few weeks old. Neil Parish's Shore place serves up the same quality deli fare that has made the original such a standby, from hearty soups with handmade kreplach stuffed with ground deli meats to the deep-flavored comfort of tender brisket platters, fresh-baked knishes, and, of course, those overstuffed sandwiches.

Like a lot of people might have aspired to, Ted Merwin, Ph.D., became a scholar of deli. Specifically, Jewish deli, with a major in hot pastrami. A professor of religion at Dickinson College with a book, Pastrami on Rye: An Overstuffed History of the Jewish American Delicatessen , on the way, Merwin is part of a surprising deli zeitgeist taking hold recently, including the documentary Deli Man by Abington native Erik Greenberg Anjou and the artisanal deli movement. On April 24 and 25, Merwin, 46, will be elevated to the post of "Charlotte Kulp Memorial Scholar in Residence" at Congregation Beth Judah outside Atlantic City, where last year's Kulp scholar was a senior fellow at the Washington Institute focusing on the politics of Iran and Shiite groups in the Middle East.

When Charles J. Kasse was the Eastern Seaboard regional sales manager in Philadelphia in the 1980s for the Mosler Safe Co., he had to make a decision. "He didn't want to go to Chicago," daughter Stacy said. "He was transferred" to the Chicago office, "and he didn't want to go, because it was too cold.

Shirley Calhoun Bramble seemed to be a cheerleader long after she had been one at what is now Gloucester City Junior-Senior High School. Because Bramble's Cold Cuts, her family's delicatessen in Gloucester City, was near Gloucester Catholic High School, its students became part of an extended family. Each year, seniors would hand their class photographs to Mrs. Bramble, and she would arrange them in a photo album and display it prominently at the store. "She was adopted by every one of the kids," a son, Joseph E. IV, said.

Hymie's Merion Delicatessen had good luck and bad luck Thursday morning. The bad luck came in the form of a Dodge Ram pickup truck that crashed through the front wall, on the dining-room side, of the popular Lower Merion Township restaurant. The good luck was that the accident occurred an hour before opening time, so no diners were there and all the employees were in the other half of the restaurant. No one was injured except the driver, who one witness said was bleeding from his face.

HERBERT Ginensky had this thing about vinegar. The health-giving and curative powers of this simple ingredient, known to every cook, were taken to extremes by this man who often let his imagination run away with him. He insisted you could take vinegar internally and externally. Try bathing your feet in it. And, oh yes, dark chocolate was in the same salubrious category. And Herbert was not shy about promoting both. He passed out photocopied brochures extolling their benefits.
