t’s giving season. And although the world

of online retailers is useful and vast, we’re big proponents

of shopping locally. This year, our new style editor, Cidonie

Richards, made it her mission to find great gifts for everyone on

your list, from babies to husbands to that girliest of girlfriends — all in Southlake shops. Find her gift guide beginning on Page 19. Elsewhere, we explain

RESTAURANTS RE:defined Coffee House

RE:defined’s service counter is spacious with built-in glass cases for pastries and beverages, above. Little touches include coffee “art” with faux succulents and brass-mounted menus with leather handles, center. A clever wall-mounted menu board features drink names spelled out on wood blocks, lower right. Photos by Ralph Lauer

NOW OPEN | GRAPEVINE While the location just off Main Street in Grapevine is new, all the good things about RE:defined are back. You’ll find well-crafted cortados, pour-overs and lattes using beans from Avoca roasters in Fort Worth; tempting edibles savory and sweet; and a savvy team of baristas in the spacious work area. What’s different is the look, an amazing makeover of a former convenience store that’s less bohemian than the previous coffee shop. Credit goes to Ginger Curtis of Urbanology Designs for the smart space, which includes custom furniture such as a beautiful wood conference table with live-edge benches by J. Block Designs in Keller. From plush couches to bench-style seating to more private spaces — such as the “garden” room, a glassed-in room with hanging succulents and a roll-up garage door for nice days — there are lots of options. And, yes, “the nook” is back, complete with a sparkling chandelier and cushy banquette seating for a crowd. 200 Northwest Highway, 817-488-2828, — Meda Kessler

Sidecar Tavern

Ferrari’s casual sibling serves Roman-style rectangular pizzas. Photo by Mike Hiller

8 November-December 2018

NOW OPEN | GRAPEVINE Ferrari’s Italian Villa & Chop House is now serving by-the-slice, Roman-style pizzas and affordable wines on tap via Sidecar Tavern, a casual, indoor-outdoor space at the Ferrari’s location. Unlike the more traditional Neapolitan-style round pizzas Ferrari’s serves in the main restaurant, Sidecar offers a crunchier, more substantial rectangular crust. Chef and owner Francesco Secchi’s light, yeasty dough is fermented for two days before he and his staff stretch it into long rectangles. Once sauced and topped, the pizzas are baked in an 800-degree wood-fired oven and topped with substantial portions of toppings: Italian prosciutto, roasted peppers, imported burrata and herbs plucked from Ferrari’s backyard garden. The best part: Slices and wines by the glass cost just $5 each. Or go for the smoked mozzarella burger and Italian sammie or salad. Live music is on the schedule; check the website for details. 1200 William D. Tate Ave., 817-251-8649, — Mike Hiller

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from the Nancy Dennis Team

“Nancy, you saved my retirement and pension plan. We had our home listed for over a year, at $1,000,000, and it was hardly shown. You came in with your creativity and got us $1,385,000. We are deeply grateful and indebted to you for all you have done for us. Thank you so much.” —Terry and Shanda C. When not selling real estate — seven days a week — Nancy plays golf at the Timarron Country Club in Southlake and sings in her church choir at First Baptist Dallas. Nancy also takes great pride in helping others through her numerous philanthropic endeavors. She was honored to be elected Citizen of the Year in 2016 by the Colleyville Area Chamber of Commerce.

RESTAURANTS Burger boom, continued Everest Burgers NOW OPEN | SOUTHLAKE While we wait for Shake Shack’s big debut in Southlake Town Square, a burger chain from California has opened its first Texas outlet, on Southlake Boulevard just west of Davis Boulevard. Everest is a fast-food place with a couple of things that give it a particular personality: heaping, mountainous portions (Everest, get it?) and a long menu that includes some old-fashioned comfort-food classics. So in addition to cheeseburgers and fries you’ll find a patty melt, sloppy Joes and a pastrami dip. There’s a breakfast menu, too, and Tex-Mex standards and gyros and fish and chips and on and on. 2325 W. Southlake Blvd., 682-223-2333,

Stacks Biscuit House

COMING SOON | ROANOKE A new fast-casual biscuit restaurant is expected to open Nov. 12 along Roanoke’s downtown restaurant strip. The team behind Craft & Vine has created an over-the-top menu of cheekily named stacked-biscuit sandwiches. The Boss is classic sausage, eggs, and cheese; the Boardwalk Benedict has a Gulf crabcake, creole aioli and Tabasco hollandaise; the Jimmy Mac is meatloaf with seared mac ’n’ cheese and fried onion rings; and the Super Fly has pan-seared rainbow trout, caramelized onions and wild mushroom gravy. The menu also includes desserts, salads, sides like fried green tomatoes, and build-your-own biscuit stacks — create something with the ancho pimiento cheese and one of the five flavors of biscuits. 310 S.

Salad days

An autumn creation at Coolgreens Photo courtesy of Coolgreens

COMING SOON | SOUTHLAKE Chains like Salata and Snappy Salads — which have taken the point-and-build-yourown salad places to a new level by adding more gourmet ingredients — seem to be inspiring a few more companies to start tossing. Those two chains will soon have some new direct competition in Southlake. Coolgreens, a small salad chain from Oklahoma, is beginning to colonize Texas and has announced a new location in the Kimball Oaks center on Southlake Boulevard. Coolgreens has 50 kinds of lettuce, vegetables and other toppings in its build-your-own line but also adds quinoa bowls, flatbreads and wraps. It promises that all ingredients are chemical- and preservative-free. Watch for the opening at 2211 E. Southlake Blvd. At Saladworks, which had a grand opening — and lettuce cutting — on Nov. 6, you can build your own bowl or choose from a menu of creations like Thai chicken or Fire-Roasted Cabo salads, plus soups and sandwiches. The East Coast chain is launching its DFW invasion with this Gateway Plaza restaurant, which offers USB ports and electrical outlets in its dining room. Try the lightened up blue-cheese dressing kicked up with Greek yogurt and roasted onion. Find Saladworks at 3000 E. Southlake Blvd., Suite 7,

12 November-December 2018

OPENING SOON | PARK VILLAGE Park Village’s restaurant row is getting several new eateries, including one that might compete with the mighty popular Steel City Pops. Creamistry, a specialty ice cream shop, will open soon at 1161 E. Southlake Blvd., Suite 202, near Malai Kitchen. Creamistry makes dramatic ice cream concoctions using liquid nitrogen and lets you choose from a variety of toppings — it’s fun to watch. The Crab Station, a family-owned oyster bar with a handful of locations in the area, has been announced for a spot near Steel City Pops. The menu will offer an oyster bar; fresh and boiled seafood (often with Cajun flair); and “sacks” whose contents will remind you of a crawfish boil, with seafood, corn, Cajun potatoes and sausage.

Del Frisco’s Grille MENU UPDATE | SOUTHLAKE Del Frisco’s Grille is worth returning to again and again, not just for its quality but because it keeps its menu interesting with frequent seasonal changes. This fall, it has added several new dishes, including wings roasted with a Buffalo dry rub and served with avocado ranch and blue-cheese dressing; a baked goat cheese with apricot jam, pistachio and pomegranate; a chicken wrap with quinoa, goat cheese/beet spread, and roasted broccoli and cauliflower on a spinach tortilla; and peanut butter chocolate pie.The restaurant also has launched a new three-course tasting menu. For $35, you get a progression of three fall-inspired dishes like butternut-squash bisque, wild mushroom gnocchi and cider-braised Berkshire pork chop. Add a wine pairing for $18. 1200 E. Southlake Blvd., 817-410-3777,

SOUTHLAKE East Hampton Sandwich Co., the fast-casual chain with preppy fare that reminded us of summer on Long Island, has closed its location in Kimball Oaks. Protein Fit Kitchen has closed its doors in Park Village, and will be replaced in its spot by The Crab Station. And Mellow Mushroom, the familyfriendly pizza restaurant, has ended its groovy run at Gateway Plaza.

GRAPEVINE San Daniele, the modern-Italian restaurant with a fabulous rooftop patio overlooking South Main Street, has closed after less than a year. Perhaps the downstairs dining room failed to catch on, but we’ll miss that balcony bar at happy hour.

OPENING SOON | SOUTHLAKE Southlake Town Square has announced three retailers that will open soon.

Southlake is getting Tarrant’s first outlet near the Starbucks; Johnny Was, with upscale bohemian styles for women, is a source for beautiful dresses, tops, tunics and kimonos. It will open in the former Lucy Activewear space near J.Crew; And menswear source TravisMathew, with work and play clothes with a Southern California spirit, will open its first Texas outlet near lululemon;

Crushing it By June Naylor Photos by Ron Jenkins

A pair of Southlake wine pros help us find bliss in a bottle. When you get right down to it, there are two kinds of serious wine drinkers: those who have

Central Market’s Glenn Vert spends much of the workday consulting with wine customers, above. Clare Gillette’s job at Classic includes managing clients’ wine inventories, below.

been quaffing the good stuff for years, and those who like wine and yearn to learn more. The latter should bear in mind that the former had to start somewhere, too. Whichever category you fall into, the great news is that there are supremely helpful sources in Southlake to help you get to whatever level is next. Maybe you’re vexed as to what goes with that fish dish you’re trying to perfect, or perhaps you want to take just the right bottle to that hostess who always has the best of everything. No problem — you can’t stump this duo.

Glenn Vert Central Market


o spend time at Southlake’s Central Market is to notice that Glenn Vert works hard at keeping things from being too serious in the beer and wine department. When he arrived to manage that area 10 years ago, after several years at the Lovers Lane location in Dallas, he brought the philosophy he has always

had: “Wine is interesting and fun and an experience that involves others.” Vert came by this view naturally. Working for nearly 30 years in a musical comedy act, he found himself at DFW Airport a lot, flying to and from gigs. Waiting for planes, he frequented a wine bar in the airport, revving up his

Vert’s philosophy about enjoying wine is simple: “It’s entertainment.”

34 November-December 2018

Central Market wine displays — such as the Real Housewines of Southlake, above — often reflect Vert’s quest for fun.

wine knowledge. He took a part-time job there and learned even more. “Finally, I had enough children at home that I needed to get off the road. So I turned my wine hobby into a real job,” he says. Today, Vert and his staff have most success with wine novices who don’t mind asking questions. “It’s our goal to meet everyone where they are on their journey without making them feel alienated.” He likes to help people down the path over time, like the customer whose husband’s income increased overnight. Suddenly she was spending time with wine aficionados and wanted to move beyond the sweet moscatos she was accustomed to drinking. Vert introduced her to one wine after another. “Over the course of a year, she became quite a wine expert. One day she was giving suggestions to other customers,” he recalls. Vert and his team also work with seasoned clientele ready to advance. Those familiar with Napa cabernet sauvignons can be

turned to discoveries from other California regions or those from Bordeaux. “You don’t want to take people too far out of their comfort zones, but some may be ready to go to a high-end Greek wine.” The job never gets dull, either. “We all have short attention spans; we’re always wanting something new and cool and different. In wine, we’re always discovering new things, new trends. It ties me back to my previous life — it’s entertainment.” Witness the playful spirit of a recent wine display in the store: “The Real Housewines of Southlake,” announces the banner hanging over an arrangement of wines. “We simply put together some of our most popular table wines — there was a cab blend, a chardonnay, a rosé and a sparkling wine — all bearing names that sound like women’s names.” The description hanging on a case of Florinda, a Spanish cava: “There’s never enough glitz, glam and sparkle for this true Southlake Housewine.”

THE DETAILS Glenn Vert enjoys advising customers on wines for holiday entertaining. What goes with wild game? “The likely choice is often pinot noir, either from Oregon or a Cotes du Rhone.” What about a great dessert wine to pair with pumpkin pie? “As mouth-coating as pumpkin pie is, you’d want to cleanse the palate with a sparkling wine, and probably one that’s off-dry to just slightly sweet. A dry sparkling riesling or vouvray will work.” Take your wine challenges to Vert and his staff at Central Market in the Shops of Southlake, 1425 E.

Clare Gillette, who studied viticulture while earning her food science degree, logged time working for wine importers and distributors before hiring on at Classic Wine Storage last year.

36 November-December 2018

Classic provides clients with services that range from acquiring wine and accepting wine shipments for private collections to hosting BYOB nights, where wine enthusiasts often enjoy each other’s discoveries.

Clare Gillette Classic Wine Storage

THE DETAILS Classic Wine Storage Business has grown so much that after 12 years, Classic is moving in January to a larger facility a half-mile away, more than doubling its size to 16,000 square feet of storage and social spaces. Entry-level members invest in lockers accommodating 10 to 12 cases for $330 per year; larger lockers accommodate 36 to hundreds of cases of wine. See the facility at 525 S. Nolen Drive., Suite 200, Southlake; in January, the new location will be 2875 Market Loop, Southlake, 817-987-6480,


ess than two miles away at Classic Wine Storage, sales director Clare Gillette works with clients with varying levels of wine expertise. Some may have only gotten into wine in the past couple of years, while others are longtime collectors; all are committed enough to establish a membership at Classic. Gillette and colleagues help members explore and locate new finds in wine, manage on-site wine lockers and inventories, design and stock home wine cellars and sell wines to other collectors. “I love working with new members, sometimes in their early 30s to late 40s or 50s, people in all stages of life catching the wine bug. There’s so much energy and excitement in seeing them discover their ‘ah-ha!’ moment,” Gillette says. “It’s really cool when people come back from tastings at California wineries and want to learn more and more.” Like Vert at Central Market, Gillette helps clients choose wines for serving at dinner parties, weddings and other special events. She pulls together wine lists for holiday parties and selects wines for holiday gifts, with prices from $10 to hundreds per bottle. “We can find wines for weddings that aren’t found anywhere else, and we can manage a dinner party wine list, down to supplying and pouring the wines,” Gillette says. Gillette, who studied viticulture

while earning a food science degree at the University of Missouri, worked for importers and distributors before landing a year ago at Classic, where the diversity of services and client needs keep her hopping. In a given day, she may be working with a new collector intent on finding great values for under $50 or $100, signing for wine shipments and managing inventories, helping a client analyze his or her inventory and invest in long-term collectibles, and arranging tastings in Classic’s comfy wine settings. She particularly enjoys connecting wine people to each other. She does that by hosting BYOB nights at Classic: Clients wanting to make room in their cellars for new wines open some bottles and order in food for the evening. Gillette invites other members who might be interested in buying the wines being moved. But often the gatherings are happenstance, since people passionate about wine tend to be drawn to one another. “Later in the week, in the afternoon, members will come in and open some of their wines, inviting friends to drop by and drink a glass. Then other members come in and they’ll all start passing bottles to each other,” she says. “There’s a great sense of community. People love opening great wines and sharing them.” November-December 2018 37

food & drink

here to celebrate, whether it’s a birthday, an anniversary or a girls night out. Evandro Caregnato and Vanderleia Mallmann, Delucca’s husband-and-wife owners, know a thing or two about hospitality. More than 20 years ago, Caregnato was wooed from his native Brazil to work as a consultant for the Brazilian-style, all-youcan-eat steakhouse Texas de Brazil, based in Dallas. They both ended up working for the company. But recently, Caregnato and Mallmann decided to strike out on their own. Instead of launching their own churrascaria, they wanted to offer a different culinary glimpse into their homeland. Their gaucho-style pizzeria — where roaming servers offer endless slices — is modeled after a popular way of eating pies in Brazil: rodizio de pizza. “We had no idea if it would work [here] or not,” Caregnato says on a quiet morning at the restaurant. “But people love it.”

Vanderleia Mallmann and Evandro Caregnato are Delucca’s husband-and-wife owners.

A place setting awaits. Delucca’s service style — a variety of pizza slices brought to your table by roaming waiters — adds to the convivial spirit.

Brazil by the slice It’s evident in the repeat patrons — sometimes diners will come one night and then show up the next with new guests. Brazil natives, from as far away as Houston and Austin, have found the restaurant, too. “They know the concept, and they have good memories of it,” he says. That’s not to say that the couple hasn’t put their own spin on the idea. On any given night, more than 20 pizzas are on the menu, but quality is emphasized over quantity. Take the pepperoni. Caregnato says he tried 25 varieties before he found the right one. Or the mortadella, which is featured on the antipasto plate: “This is better than the best one from Central

Market,” he says. Other items on that plate include triangles of manchego, mounds of lightly dressed arugula, handfuls of olives and a half-roasted head of garlic, all of which nearly meet you at the door at the beginning of the meal. For something completely unexpected, there’s the extremely luscious lobster bisque. This is not typically on the menu at a rodizio, but Caregnato created a rendition at Texas de Brazil, and he says people loved it so much, he had to make it here, too. When the pizza part of the dinner ensues, the roaming gauchos descend. One of my favorite pizzas — and Caregnato’s, too — is the Turkish lamb,

which has halal-grade lamb, ground inhouse, commingling with thinly sliced purple onion and mint. Sumac, an earthy Middle Eastern spice, gives this pizza big flavor. Great respect is shown for all the ingredients, even down to the cheese and flour. The house mozzarella, pulled from curds every day and made into fior di latte, is featured on nearly every pizza, and Caregnato uses Italian 00, or doppio zero flour, which makes for a thin yet sturdy foundation for toppings. Caregnato and his wife laugh about how some people find the slices of pizza too small, but he feels that the experience is all about sampling: “You have to be openminded,” he says, likening his restaurant to a Spanish-style tapas experience. Thankfully, people have embraced both the effervescent couple and their concept. In just over six months, Southlake-area

patrons have fallen in love with Delucca, so much so that the owners have big plans for expansion. A second location is scheduled to open in November in the Dallas Design District. Slightly bigger than the Southlake shop, the new restaurant seeks to push the envelope — even for Big D diners. “It’s a little more luxurious,” Caregnato says of the decor. A Fort Worth spot, location to be determined, is on tap for 2019. Other tweaks will include lunch service and desserts a la carte. All of which reminds me of a certain blackberry mascarpone pizza I sampled last summer at the Southlake original. Sweet, slightly savory and salty, it hit all the right notes. Just like Delucca. The blackberry mascarpone pizza pairs well with a glass of prosecco. November-December 2018 43

We remember

On Veterans Day, Southlake honors the local heroes of World War I. By Joy Donovan The 11th hour of the 11th day of

the 11 month is when we commemorate the “war to end all wars,” World War I, which ended Nov. 11, 1918. This year, on the 100th anniversary of that date, the Southlake area will host several observations of what was founded as Armistice Day and is now known as Veterans Day. On Nov. 11, flags will be planted, wreaths will be laid and bells will be rung, all to honor the service and heroism of World War I veterans, some of them Southlake’s own. Among those organizing observances is Thomas Elieson, age 14, an Eagle Scout hopeful. For a required Eagle Scout project, Thomas researched World War I veterans buried in Southlake and decided to lead a remembrance for the community. “World War I is looked over a lot,” said Thomas, a freshman at Carroll High School. “A lot of people get caught up in World War II, but World War I was very devastating.” Using the public library and other resources, Thomas discovered eight WWI veterans buried in Southlake’s White’s Chapel and Lonesome Dove cemeteries. For the centennial, he will clean the gravesites before placing American flags. Then, at 5 p.m. Nov. 11, just before sunset, Thomas and his Scout troop will hold a public flag ceremony at White’s Chapel Cemetery. Thomas, who will read biographies that he researched and wrote of the eight veterans, will be joined by fellow Scout th

Kevin Ward, who will play taps, and Southlake residents Emily Blund and Ashley Pace, who will give a musical performance of “In Flanders Field.” Because its lyrics reference poppies, which were adopted as a symbol of remembrance, artificial poppies will be given out at the flag ceremony. Earlier in the day, bells will be the centerpiece, just as they were on that happy day 100 years earlier, from Paris to London to New York. “Bells burst forth in joyful chimes,” according to one London newspaper. The goal is to repeat the spirited bell ringing in 2018, says Anita Robeson, board member of the Southlake Historical Society, which is organizing many of the celebrations.

The bells of White’s Chapel United Methodist Church will toll at 11 a.m. Nov. 11 as part of the Bells of Peace, a national effort. And a bell at the fire station at 667 N. Carroll Ave. will be rung 22 times by firefighters who are military veterans. The public is invited to watch.

who founded the church in 1846. Torian served in World War I, was shot in 1918 in France and is buried at Lonesome Dove Baptist Church and Cemetery, according to church staff member Cherie Johnson. Thomas Elieson The Captain Courtesy of Shelly Elieson Molly Corbin Chapter of the Daughters of the At Lonesome Dove Baptist Church American Revolution will expand that morning, the lobby will display photos of James Eli Torian, the tributes. As always, the chapter will place flags on veterans’ graves at the Grapevine Cemetery, said chapter regent Jean de Schweinitz. This year members also will hold wreath-laying ceremonies at six area cemeteries that have been identified by the WWI Centennial Commission as having WWI veterans buried there. Included will be the two in Southlake, plus the Grapevine Cemetery, Parker Memorial Cemetery and Minters Chapel Cemetery in Grapevine, and Bluebonnet Hills in Colleyville. For suburbs highlighted by contemporary homes and slick shopping venues, the WWI centennial is a chance to remember that history surrounds us. Thomas has learned this on his journey toward Eagle Scout. Boy Scouts were among the first people to observe Armistice Day in Washington, D.C. “This is real history about real Courtesy of Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division people.” November-December 2018 57


The Joy of Looking Why I love to Food-Network-and-chill for the holidays


By Kathryn Hopper

ach holiday season, I can’t resist tuning in to classic shows like A Charlie Brown Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

But what I really look forward to is gorging on all the cooking

shows. Nothing puts me in the Thanksgiving and Christmas spirit

quite like watching other people create things like Turkey Tail Cupcakes and Christmas Reindeer Brownies. Halloween is a great warmup to the endof-the-year cooking show marathons I allow myself to indulge in. Who can resist all the “disturbingly delicious” creations on the Food Network’s bingeworthy Halloween Baking Championship, things like the Apocalyptic Apartment Cake and Zombie Hand Cheesecake? Thanksgiving offers the perfect second course. I love to gain insight from the experts as they tackle basting and seasoning the holiday bird. Like the America’s Test Kitchen episode “Outsmarting Thanksgiving,” when chef Dan Souza showed how to “massage the sugar-salt mixture on the breasts,” then “go deep in the cavity.” The Christmas shows are like spending a holiday weekend with my favorite perfect, would-be friends. The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond, takes me away to her Oklahoma ranch for a “festive Christmas potluck and ranch-style soiree.” Watching her and her daughters create gingerbread cookies shaped like boots, horses and cows — all under perfect lighting — sends me to a

58 November-December 2018

Zen place of perfect contentment. Then the Barefoot Contessa whisks me away to the snowy Berkshires, where I can enjoy a “cozy fireside kitchen picnic” with Ina Garten and Jeffrey. I may not be able to taste the Pea and Fennel Soup or sip the Peppermint Hot Chocolate, but I can toast them from my sofa with some microwaved mulled wine. This year I’m adding Kalen Allen to my merry little marathon. The Temple University graduate became an internet sensation for his frank commentaries offered during cooking videos and went viral to score millions of fans and a gig on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Watching others mix up a mayonnaise martini and ketchup cake, he goes from “Oh, no, y’all didn’t” to “Jesus, take the wheel!” Of course, the highlight of the season for me is an evening streaming The Great British Baking Show’s Christmas Masterclass episodes. I’m still in awe of Paul Hollywood’s epic Kransekake, a Scandinavian concoction that required stacking 16 iced cake rings to form an edible-glitter-bedazzled cone. “Mom, you should make that,” my youngest son said. “Or we could just go to Krispy Kreme,

stack up a dozen iced glazed with sprinkles and call it a day,” I offered. In my more ambitious youth, I tried to re-create the elaborate holiday recipes as seen on TV. My American Flag Cake from a Martha Stewart July Fourth show did bear some resemblance to Old Glory. But these days I’m too tired and stressed out to tackle culinary challenges best left to the experts. After just one dish, I’m exhausted from all the mincing and mashing, not to mention cleaning up all the measuring cups and spoons, pots and pans. I get that most cooking shows are totally staged. They’re likely filmed back in the spring, months before any frost hits the pumpkin. They have entire staffs to perfectly predice all those ingredients. But that doesn’t matter. These days I simply need to watch people at least appearing to enjoy each other’s company while eating amazing food in a glamorous locale. Or, failing that, I’ll take chuckling as I watch someone else create a hot mess. As long as I don’t have to clean it up. Kathryn Hopper is a Southlake mother of four who makes a mean mess of sugar cookies.

You would even say it glows About 40 skilled artisans from China descend on Grapevine each autumn to create one of our favorite holiday traditions: the ICE! exhibit at the Gaylord Texan. This team of sculptors bundles up every day for a solid month and goes to work rendering a winter wonderland out of more than 2 million pounds of colored ice. Here, one artist shapes the big, friendly eyes of a storybook reindeer, part of this year’s new Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer theme. We loved getting a rare behind-the-scenes peek at this project in progress — it’s largely kept under wraps each year until its debut. The public is invited to join the magic beginning Nov. 9.
