Councilwoman Joan Krajewski usually has a low tolerance for smart-alecky back talk, but she has agreed to endure an evening of good-natured wisecracks on Oct. 14 - as the target of a roast to benefit the Sunshine Foundation. The barbs will come from an assortment of jokesters, including radio personalities Irv Homer and Dominic Quinn, Councilmen John Street and Jack Kelly, and City Commissioner Margaret Tartaglione. Homer will be the emcee. Krajewski has been bracing herself for months for the event, at the Cottage Green Restaurant, Ashton and Willits Roads.

City Councilman Leland M. Beloff was there in a tuxedo with a flower in his lapel. In all, a half-dozen members of Council sat at the head table. And scattered throughout the banquet room were most of the important labor leaders in Philadelphia. Pretty nice turnout, somebody said to Margaret L. Tartaglione, the guest of honor. "Yeah, well," she said, "they're roasting me, you know. They just want to get me. " About 600 people paid $25 each to attend the fund-raising dinner last night at Palumbo's restaurant in South Philadelphia to benefit Tartaglione's campaign for re-election as a city commissioner.

You're chatting with your friends, and someone suggests that it would be nifty to zap a pal with a surprise video roast - if only anyone knew a person experienced enough with a video camera to put one together. Well, if you've been using your camcorder to record family events like weddings, graduations or vacations, perhaps it's time to accept the challenge and try your talent as a small-time movie producer/director. With decent video equipment, it's unlikely that you will fail totally, and even partial failures of projects like this can be a lot of fun. If you know how to create a story, you should be able to give it life with pictures.

The seven Democratic candidates for president came together at a downtown Washington hotel Tuesday night to "roast" New Jersey's Sen. Bill Bradley. By the time the night was over, the joke may well have been on them. Bradley, who has resisted repeated urgings from across a wide political spectrum to run for the White House, demonstrated that, as of now, he is simply in a different league from his colleagues. And if he still entertains any notions about getting into the race, what happened at his roast may offer those thoughts enormous encouragement.

To congressman, councilman and jury commissioner, add another career option for James J. Tayoun. "Jim, are you a veteran? Good, I know of a very good job for you," joked Councilman Ed Schwartz, referring to the flap over former councilman and Abscam figure Harry Jannotti's aborted appointment to a council veterans' commission. In fact, that may be the only job Tayoun is not rumored to be seeking. As about 350 friends and political cronies gathered to "roast" Tayoun at his Middle East Restaurant last night, the sizzle of insults was matched only by the murmurs of speculation.

A pig helping handicapped children in Burlington County? Well, at least that's the plan members of the Edgewater Park Elks have in mind for their 11th annual Pig Roast, scheduled for Saturday at the lodge. There are about 43 handicapped children - retarded children and those with birth defects and cerebral palsy - on the Elks Club's "roster" this year. And "every dime that's earned goes to the handicapped kids," Elks member Ernie Jewell said. Money collected is used to provide wheelchairs, walkers and crutches for the children.

Easter dinner is much less predictable than other holiday meals. Thanksgiving means a turkey roasting in the oven, and for Christmas it's either another big bird or roast beef. But come spring, everyone is tired of turkey and cooks are ready to experiment a little. So they'll buy a ham, smother it in pineapple and cloves; order a rolled pork roast from their favorite butcher; or wow the relatives with a rack of lamb. If this is the year you'd like to make a new Easter tradition, think duck.

Tom Chambers scored 13 of his 25 points in a lopsided third quarter and Dan Majerle outscored NBA Rookie of the Year Mitch Richmond 22-12 as the Phoenix Suns routed the Golden State Warriors, 130-103, in yesterday's opening game of their Western Conference semifinal playoff series. Game 2 of the best-of-seven series is scheduled for Tuesday night at Arizona Veterans Memorial Coliseum before the series moves to Oakland, Calif., for Games 3 and 4. Phoenix, which swept Denver in three straight games in the first round, outrebounded the Warriors, 39-22, while building a 66-51 halftime lead, then outscored Golden State, 41-22, in the third period, which ended with the Suns ahead 107-73.

DEAR ABBY: We have been attending the weddings of our friends' children and work colleagues. We enjoy them, but we have noticed a change in some of the traditions. The best man's and maid of honor's toasts to the bride and groom seem to have devolved into telling stories about their past escapades, with "digs" at the bride and groom. Some of these speeches can go on for more than 10 minutes. Abby, many guests attending these celebrations really don't care to hear these kinds of things.

Full of roadside-sold soft pretzels, we'd zoom past pine trees, hand-painted antiques sale signs and Jersey tomato stands. From the backseat - the way-way-back - we sucked hard on plastic juice-box straws and fogged windows to play tic-tac-toe. Then, about 30 minutes past when pop music turned to static, we'd sense it. Crawling over lumpy suitcases, boogie boards, and grocery bags, we'd strain for the window crank, roll it down, and let the salt air pour into our lungs. When I reflect on the Shore of my youth, I'm lying in my underwear on a twin bed. It's 5 o'clock and the sun is just starting to dip outside the window next to me, a light breeze lifts the lace curtains, chills my sunburned skin.

At a coffee shop, Brian Mottolo will allow other customers to go ahead of him. He'll wait in the back, practicing his order in his head. When it's all clear, he'll approach the counter and say, "Medium dark roast. Cream and sugar. " When Mottolo, 52, shared that story during a meeting at Magee Rehab recently, his audience lauded him. "You've been practicing!" speech language pathologist Sarah Lantz said. "That's good. That's real good. " Mottolo has aphasia, the loss of the ability to use language because of damage to the brain.
