Happy August everyone ight around now we are hot, humid, rainy and keeping an eye on the tropics.

But luckily, we have Atlantic Ave Magazine to

keep us cool and informed.

In this month’s issue we meet Delray’s new Planning Direc-

tor, Dana Little and check in with my favorite doctors at As-

sociates in Medicine. We urge you to read Diane Feen’s profile

of Dana. He will be an important person in Delray’s future and that’s a good thing.

We also visit with my good friend Dr. Spodak and our usual

array of experts on health, fitness, dining, shopping, culture etc. Once again, thanks for your kind support of Atlantic Ave and

for shopping local year round, but especially during the sum-

mer season. Our advertisers and local economy really appreciate your continued support.

Also in this issue, we take a look at All Aboard Florida (the

pro’s and the cons) and take a broad view of our food scene.

New studies show that urban vitality can be directly mea-

sured by the health of your local restaurant scene. Fortunately, our restaurant scene is second to none.

The success of Atlantic Avenue the street is really a food and

beverage story.

And that’s OK, because quality food and beverage draw

people and have created a brand for downtown Delray that is the envy of many other cities.

We take a closer look at what Delray 2.0 could be, with food

and beverage, still playing a major role.

Enjoy, stay cool and please, no hurricanes.

Expert Tactical Trainer Taught Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense Class At Spodak Dental Group

Spodak Dental Group hosted a Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense class on Wednesday, June 18. More than 20 ladies of all levels of athleticism, strength, flexibility and body types learned how to use physics, gravity, leverage and technique to deter an attacker. Kendrink Stephens, an expert in personal defense tactics and close quarter combat, is the founder and teacher of the Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense class. According to Mr. Stephens, many women’s self-defense programs teach unrealistic techniques that promote a false sense of security and cause more harm than good. This program is the first of its kind and employs effective, “reality based” tactics that will help the attendees protect themselves under the worst of circumstances. One out of every five American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime. Furthermore, 80 percent of victims are younger than 30 years old. “The statistics are staggering,” said Dr. Craig Spodak, owner of Spodak Dental Group, “and I’m glad to be able to provide this free class to the women in our community. If I can help save someone’s life, it is well worth it.” The Ladies F.I.R.S.T. Self Defense Training Program is being taught nationwide to individual women, groups, corporations, female school teachers, moms’ clubs, women’s sports teams, shelters for victims of assault and more. 8 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Ron Parker as he takes you on a journey through 20 stories of mangled steel, clouds of smoke and ash in his attempts to rescue thousands of civilians and lost firefighter brothers trapped beneath the fallen twin towers.

the acclaimed composer of The Trouble With Doug. Arts Garage Summer Tune-up In its second year, the Arts Garage Summer tune-Up series has proven to be a fun and valuable program for exploring new work in American musical theater. It’s fun for our audience to experience some of the best small musicals being written today. It’s valuable for Arts Garage to see which new works it might want to fully produce in a subsequent season. This concert/reading series is an exciting, bare-bones theater evening where artists bring all of their talents, scripts in hand, to each fresh new work, and audiences, with their favorite wine in hand, use all of their imagination to “see” each new work fully realized in their minds-eye. It’s just the text and the score, the band and the actors at music stands, and an adventurous audience going for the ride. For more information call 561-4506357 or visit www.artsgarage.org.

delray under $50 By Darien Arden


Now that Delray Beach is a rising star in the art, culture and social scene, it might seem a little difficult to find affordable activities, shops or restaurants. I am here to prove you wrong. Delray Beach offers a mix of high-end boutiques with laid-back restaurants, and events for the whole family or nightclubs for night owls. Here is what you can do in Delray Beach in August for $50 or less.


f you’re in the mood to save some mula and experience a food- and drink-gasm, there’s one event you don’t want to miss, and that, my friends, is Tastemakers. National Bargain Hunting Week is August 4 through 10 and Tastemakers might just be the best bargain of the summer. Even if you’re local or a novice to the bounty of the Avenue, the Sixth Annual Tastemakers of Delray Beach offers you a culinary experience via a dining passport that you don’t want to miss. Purchase said passport for $30 cash and pack your appetite because you’re now entitled to a delicious bite and tasty cocktail at nine restaurants dotted along the Avenue. The event is held Thursday, August 7 and Friday, August 8 from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and I assure you can make it to all restaurants in one night, or stretch it to two if you’re feeling fancy. Palate pleasers include Florida lobster and crab bisque and Riesling at Caffe Luna Rosa, Barbacoa Taco and a classic margarita at El Camino, Hawaiian fried rice and lychee martini at Lemongrass, and more. The fun doesn’t stop there, though, as the passport entitles you to discounts at all participating restaurants through the end of September, including discounts on your dining check, half-priced bottles of wine, or complimentary drinks with purchase. This is the best-tasting bargain around, so get together a group of foodies and drink and eat the night away. Please call (561) 243-1077 or visit www.downtowndelraybeach.com for more information and specific restaurant offerings. 20 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com


ake a deep breath. Feels good, doesn’t it? I’m willing to bet that the majority of us don’t really breathe throughout the day, save to simply avoid not breathing. August 1 through 7 is Simplify Your Life Week and this is a perfect wake-up call to breathe, think and act with purpose. To exist with a meaning for which you intend. If you’re not sure where to start, breathe easy. Grab your yoga pants and a relaxed state because there’s a Qigong class with your name on it. Held at Veteran’s Park every Saturday in August from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., participants will learn and practice ancient breathing and stretching techniques that are easy and effective. Some of the benefits of these techniques, which are derived from Qigong and yoga traditions, include restorative sleep, increased energy, more effective metabolism for weight stabilization, boosted immune system, reduced stress and much more. Breathe, stretch, repeat. The class is held outside and costs $5 for residents and $6 for non-residents, per class. Veteran’s Park is located at the Intracoastal and Atlantic Avenue. Please call (561) 243-7350 or visit www. mydelraybeach.com for more information.


air the sound of the beach, the cool breeze off the ocean and some damn fine food, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for success. August 5 is National Night Out and there’s a culinary party waiting for your attendance. Caffe Luna Rosa is hosting a series of exquisite wine and food events prepared by Executive Chef Ernesto DeBlasi and Sommelier Nikola Stijak and the gastronomic experience is yours for a mere $39 per person (not including tax and gratuity). First course includes risotto “ortaggi,” an assortment of fresh garden summer vegetables, creamy risotto and parmigiano reggiano; second course is a Belgian endive salad with radicchio, shaved fennel and orange segments in a light champagne dress-

ing; third course is your choice of brasato il manzo or pan-seared Maryland jumbo lump crab cakes; finished with a brandied apple crisp for dessert. There is another dinner on August 26 if this one doesn’t whet your appetite, but if it doesn’t, you should probably check your pulse. There is a 6 p.m. and an 8:15 p.m. seating so make your reservations and entrée choice soon because space is limited. Caffe Luna Rosa is located at 34 S. Ocean Blvd. Please call (561) 274-9404 or visit www.caffelunarosa.com for more information and to reserve your night out.


t’s summer! I’ll drink to that. Usually summertime is when Delray becomes a little less busy and locals can show their favorite bartenders some love. August is National Win with Civility Month and this is a perfect win, win, win month for all of us: we can get some one-on-one time with our bar keeps, we get to enjoy a not-so-packed bar, and there’s happy hour specials galore. I’ve compiled a list of some of the key watering holes, but the list most certainly does not stop here. If you’re looking to get a little Greek in you, head to Taverna Opa where they certainly know how to party by offering you a two-time happy hour (and let’s not forget about the belly dancer shakin’ her groove thang). Enjoy half-priced drinks and a special menu that includes Greek pork sausage for $5 and roasted lamb for $6. Happy hour is served every day from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. and also 10 p.m. to 12 a.m. and I’ll yell a grand “opa!” to that. If you’re looking for a seafood extravaganza, swim down to Mussel Beach and cast your net for mussels galore because in addition to 2-4-1 drinks, you can also indulge in $10 mussel bowls (the Dijon is off-the-radar good). These may be the best mussels you’ve ever had so you’ll have to lie to your man and tell him he still has the greatest muscles in town, wink. Happy hour is 3:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the weekends so all aboard! Let’s be courteous and polite and get our summer fun on downtown. Please visit www.downtowndelraybeach.com for more happy hour information and I’ll see you bellied up at the bar.


appreciate a good rub down, especially when someone else is doing it for me. August is National Happiness Happens Month and I know what happens when I enter a spa: I get this overwhelming feeling of puppies, an unlimited salad bar, and hot air balloon rides (aka extreme happiness). If you’re interested in treating yourself to a nice pampering, look no further than Donna Pascoe Salon where you’ll have an exclusive VIP experience that enhances your beauty and brings it to the next level, which is perfect timing for summer bikinis and oh-so-hot hair styles. The Salon offers the ultimate in hair and skin treatments and the highly knowledgeable team is ready to turn drab into fab so get in the chair. ‘Tis time to indulge in yourself and let’s start with a mini facial where you’ll receive maximum results in a short 30-minute trip to heaven facial town for only $45. Or, if you had a super fun night and can’t seem to find a room dark enough and a bloody mary big enough, order up the opti-firm eye contour treatment, which combats signs of sleep deprivation, aging and reduces wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles (aka the sign of a good time) for $40 for 30 minutes of a personal S.O.S. treatment. Or, let’s go crazy with an eyelash tinting for only $25 (is it weird that I want a fierce application of gold?). This even sounds like a type of happy Pharrell can get into. Donna Pascoe Salon is located at 2 S.E. Sixth Ave. Please call (561) 573-0006 or visit www.donnapascoesalondelray.com for more information.

By Bill Blakeman – Evening Host

By matt prager, owner



here are great cities up and down the coast of Florida but for me, what makes Delray Beach stand out is its strong sense of community. I’ve been lucky to be a part of this community for the past 20 years and if it weren’t for Delray Beach and the outstanding people I’ve met here, I probably wouldn’t still be in Florida. I first came here in 1990 as manager of the Colony Wine & Liquor Shoppe. I had been working in the wine business most of my life so the Colony was the perfect fit. We were one of the first stores on Atlantic Avenue to stay open after 5 p.m. and we became known as the place to find a great selection of wines in Delray Beach. After leaving the shop, I went into the wine wholesale business. You could say I spent 10 years on the Avenue and 10 years walking the Avenue, all in the great name of wine. Just a few months ago I joined the staff of Caffe Luna Rosa, working three nights a week. I’ve always loved coming here as a guest but working here you get to see just how well everyone works together. It’s like synchronized swimming for a restaurant. As the host, I’m seeing many of my old friends and I feel very lucky to be a part of a restaurant like Caffe Luna Rosa.

y wife and I decided to go into business over six years ago and combined our experience of selling, training, employee development and business to create our first business in the sanitation industry, Brilliant Supply. Brilliant Supply is a commercial chemical and paper distributor for local restaurants, hotels, nursing homes and hospitals. We service many local restaurants right on the Ave and deliver janitorial chemicals and service from Fort Pierce to Miami. During the last six years we have always sold commercial dishwashers, but recently we decided to expand our operations and so, Restaurant Appliance Depot was established. Restaurant Appliance Depot is a one stop shop for all commercial kitchen appliances. We love Delray Beach and that is why we live and have both our businesses here. We attribute the success of our businesses to several factors; that we are family owned and operated, we treat our employees like our own family, and the way we serve our customers. Our service is impeccable. Our business continues to grow because of my two part business philosophy: Always under promise and always over deliver!

Gotta See

By skip sheffield

August gets a cosmic sendoff with the August 1 opening of “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Chris Pratt stars as Peter Quill, an American pilot who becomes Star Lord as he teams with a motley crew of characters to defeat “a cosmic force of epic proportions.” Dave Bautista is Drax the Destroyer. Zoe Saldana is Gamora. Michael Rooker is Yondu. Glenn Close is Nova Prime and Benicio Del Toro is The Collector. The screenplay is based on the Marvel Comics series that began in 1969, James Gunn (“Slither,” “Super”) directing.

August 1 No one can “Get On Up” quite like James Brown could. The volatile “Godfather of Soul” is played by Chadwick Bosman and Susie Brown is played by Viola Davis. Dan Aykroyd plays Ben Bart and Octavia Spencer is Aunt Honey. Tate Taylor (“The Help”) directs a script by British brothers Jez and JohnHenry Butterworth. August 8 Has the world been clamoring for live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles? We will find out soon enough when the former cartoon figures with famous artist names are played by real people. They are Alan Ritchsop (Raphael), Pete Plosek (Leonardo), Jeremy Howard (Donatello) and Noel Fisher (Michelangelo) Foxy Megan Fox plays April O’Neill and Will Arnett is Vernon Fenwick. Jonathan Liebsman (“Wrath of the Titans”) directs. It was a dark and stormy night. “Into the Storm” is told from the point of view of professional storm-chasers who risk their lives for a once-in-alifetime shot in a 24-hour period in a tornado-ravaged town named Silverton. The cast includes Arlen Escarpeta, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Jeremy Sumpter, Max Deacon, Arthur Kress and Richard Armitage. Steven Quale (“Final Destination 5”) directs. August 13 I don’t wanna be a ghost, “Let’s Be Cops.” When two buddies dress up as policemen at a costume party they are such a big hit they take their charade

38 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

into real life. What could possibly go wrong? Well, this R-rated comedy’s slogan is “Fake Cops, Real Trouble.” Damon Wayons, Jr. and Jake Johnson are the fake cops and the cast includes James D’Arcy, Nina Dobrev, Andy Garcia and Olina Voronkova. Luke Greenfield (“Something Borrowed”) directs.

August 15 For “expendables” these old guys sure are durable. “Expendables 3” returns Sylvester Stallone and Jason Statham to lead a team including Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Dolph Lundgren and Wesley Snipes to save the President of the USA. This time the oldsters are teamed with younger, more tech-oriented expendables against force founder Conrad Stonebanks (Mel Gibson), who has gone rogue. Patrick Hughes (“Red Hill”) directs. The Dude is “The Giver.” Twenty years ago Jeff Bridges acquired rights to Lois Lawry’s award-winning, bestselling novel. Now he stars as the title character, with Meryl Streep as the Chief Elder of a harmonious future society. But wait, is there some dark secret behind the pleasant façade of a world without conflict? Sixteen-yearold Jonas (Brandon Thwaites) wants to know. Alexander Skarsgard plays Jonas’ dad and Taylor Swift and Katie Homes are in the cast. Phillip Noyce (“Salt”) directs. August 22 Young adult novels seem to be a growth industry- at least as screen adaptations. Gayle Forman’s “If I Stay” is the basis for a new weeper starring Chloe Grace Moretz as Mia Hall, who wants to pursue her musical dreams at Julliard but is torn by her love for Adam (Jamie Blackley) who seems to

Pain Can Change Your Brain

By Dr. Travis Lamperski

Chronic pain is very common throughout the world. Studies show that more than 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain syndromes and dysautonomias. But how does chronic pain occur and what are the long term effect to our brains? The human brain changes automatically, instantly, constantly and daily based on the information it receives from our body and the environment around it. The term used in the medical community is “Neuroplasticity” and these changes can be positive or negative.

Chronic pain is described as pain that lingers for more than three months. It may be caused by an ongoing mechanism such as arthritis, sustained nerve root compression due to spinal stenosis, nerve root injury or other ongoing painful stimuli. In some cases, the exact cause of the pain is hard to identify and can be associated with changes that have taken place within the central nervous system itself. The process in which these changes take place is called maladaptive plasticity. Most people don’t realize but our brains are changing every day and we continuously train our brains each time we learn a new skill, read a new book or sing a new song. This process occurs by electrical and chemical signals in our cells throughout our body that creates pathways to our 42 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

brain. Prolonged stimulus to a specific neural pathway can change or alter the amount of information both electrical and chemical that travels to the brain. In fact, chronic back pain actually shrinks the gray matter in our brains, the part responsible for memory and information processing. So the longer an individual has chronic back pain, the more brain loss they suffered. Understanding acute and chronic pain is important. All pain is perceived in the brain, it is the long term effects that make them completely different. Acute pain is our brain telling us that there is some type of damage to our body, often times very severe and short lived. This signal is sent to the brain and is perceived as a recognizable sensation of trouble. The brain sends instructions to the body to remove itself from danger and the brain works to lessen the pain. Often times the pain will stop even before the tissue is fully healed. Chronic pain is quite different. When the brain receives ongoing stimulus of danger and/or damage, the pain sensory pathways become reinforced (heightened) instead of inhibited causing the brain’s pain centers to become enhanced and at times can cause cortical remapping in the sensory part of our brains because more and more cells are being recruited to sense pain. In this case Neuroplasticity works against us! As stated earlier, the human brain is highly

changeable and for the brain to work at its optimal function it has 3 major requirements, oxygen, proper nutrients and stimulation. Utilizing advanced neurological rehabilitative exercises such as interactive metronome (motor timing exercises), one-sided chiropractic adjustments, cognitive exercises and specific brain activation (sound, light, touch, vibration and oculomotor exercises) can help in “remapping” the brain’s pain centers and target under functioning or over functioning regions of the brain. In regards to treating some of the most common orthopedic conditions such as back pain, physical medicine procedures such as non-surgical spinal decompression and high powered laser therapy in conjunction with neurological techniques provide rapid and definitive results. If you are an individual that suffers from chronic pain, time is of the essence as these maladaptive neurological pathways are more difficult to treat the longer you wait.

Here we go again, new technology, better…faster…stronger…


By Thomas C. Balshi, M.D.

Here is an update on a new advancement in laser aesthetic medicine. A new procedure called the “Triniti™”. It involves advancements in accelerated skin repair and rejuvenation.

The complete skin program for immediate, visible and long lasting results, Triniti™ is a non-surgical “laser” treatment in three steps, performed sequentially, during the same office visit! With the Triniti™ skin program, color correction, and wrinkle treatment can all be achieved in a single session, helping you achieve total facial renewal in just 3 treatment sessions. The Trinity Complex combines 3 of today’s most effective technologies through the Syneron laser system. 1. FotoFacial RF® Color Correction improves spider veins, age spots, uneven skin tone and sun-damaged skin. 2. Refirme™ wrinkle reduction targets telltale signs of aging, including: sagginess under the eyes, saggy brow lines, and nasolabial folds. It stimulates long term collagen synthesis as well as the tightening of existing collagen fibers, giving an immediate firmed appearance. 3. Matrix IR™ fractional for wrinkles resolves moderate wrinkles and skin texture becomes smoother. The Matrix IR fractional applicator delivers a form of microbeams creating a matrix of thermal bands with more focused energy to target zones, promoting fast collagen renewal and remodeling for a smoother glowing skin appearance. Here is how the Triniti™Complex works: The 3 treatment technologies of the Triniti™Complex- FotoFacial RF, Refirme and Matrix IR - feature the revolutionary elōs technology. An incredible combination of Dual-Polar Radio Frequency and Light/Laser energies which precisely heat tissue within the targeted treatment area stimulate rejuvenation within the skin. The treatment is based on the premise that 44 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

synergistic activity between the two different forms of energy occurs. The dual-polar radio frequency component enables the use of lower levels of the optical diode laser component, reducing the risk from optical energy and improving the results across all types of skin color. The diode laser component is believed to drive the dual-polar radio frequency energy to concentrate where the optical energy has selectively heated the target, therefore, allowing one to selectively concentrate on deeper lines and wrinkles. Wrinkle treatment with elōs technology,

enables you to comfortably achieve a more youthful appearance with virtually ZERO downtime. It’s fast, effective and strives to improve color, texture, pore size and wrinkles for full face rejuvenation. Every medical discipline covets the newest “rocket science” that will bring thrills to their patients. In the field of Dermatology, Triniti™ screams success. Dr. Thomas C.

Clear Mind, Clear Skin


By Kristin Heather

Holistic skin care is about discovering tools to connect to yourself and to heal your own body, specifically in areas that are affecting the look, feel, and health of your appearance.

By connecting to your body, mind, and spirit, you can address energetic blockages and start to attain inner balance, which will show up everywhere in your life, even your skin. So, where do you start? How will you tap into the exact imbalance that is causing eczema, acne, sagging, or dullness? To comprehend the language of the skin, one must become very clear. It is clarity that will give answers. For this reason, meditation is one of the most powerful and fantastic skin care techniques. Skin inflammation, wrinkles, brown spots, etc. are physical manifestations of deeper emotional blockages. By delving in, one can find the many layers involved in skin care. First, there is the outward, external skin, which communicates so thoughtfully, but is so often misunderstood. Then, there is the internal situation that is causing the skin to look tired or radiant, to look dull or glowing, inflamed or refined. To address these aspects of skin care, focus should be on the gut, on the immune system, treating the internal with diet, supplements, acupuncture, etc., and treating the external with professional cleanings and treatments. But deeper, there are the emotions and the spirit. Emotional blockages, unexpressed feelings and thoughts show up physically. The skin is such a powerful communicator because it’s our representation in the world. It is what people see, what we see when we look into the mirror. Therefore, when our skin is inflamed in any way, it really gets our attention! When skin is stubbornly not healing, when you have worked on the internal and the external and its message still persists, frustration tends to be the first reaction. And with that, come negative thought patterns and even a decrease in self-love or self-worth. Negative thoughts and feelings will perpetuate skin problems. 46 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Meditation reaches us on all levels: first physically, then emotionally and spiritually. It is the most versatile skin care: whether you are only interested in the physical or want to go deeper, meditation does it all. In regards to the skin, it addresses some key issues: • Meditation eliminates stress, and stress is directly related to wrinkles, fine lines, acne, and all skin issues. For instance, stress increases the release of cortisol, a hormone that is crucial for high stress situations, but harmful when maintained at high levels. Cortisol stimulates oil production in the skin, which can create an environment for inflammation. Cortisol causes blood sugar to increase, which damages collagen and leads to more fine lines and wrinkles. • Meditation encourages positive thought patterns, acceptance, and compassion (outward and inward). When our skin is inflamed or wrinkled or discolored, fostering positivity can heal our perception of what our beauty truly is. • Meditation gives you a clear space for your body to communicate what it needs. The body and spirit talks to you in unassuming ways: being clear could mean that you read the right article, find the right skin care professional, or stumble upon a life-changing workshop. Skin care is often thought to simply address outward beauty, yet the state of your skin is truly related to the health of your body and your mind. “The more people can embrace the beauty of what wants to flow through them and allow that message whatever size stage it needs, the more the acne or other unsightly things seem to resolve,” says medical intuitive Laura Bruno in her blog “Healthy Skin: A Medical Intuitive Perspective.” Meditation provides the clarity to receive, appreciate, and face this message intuitively with compassion and wisdom.

As a forerunner in modern skin care services and anti-aging, Kristin founded Nourishe in Delray Beach and currently heads aesthetic science research and development. Kristin’s revolutionary approach to DNA Repair and her extensive training with some of the best professionals in the industry has made her the expert in healing and improving the skin naturally and holistically. Kristin created and holds exclusive rights to over 8 different treatments from DNA Repair to Oxy-Infusion to non-surgical face lifting techniques. 200 NE 2nd Ave #114 - Delray Beach, FL 33444 (561) 278-4144 - www.nourishemedispa.com

health & beauty ║ Your Dental Health

Are your missing or failing teeth ruining your quality of life?


BY Craig Spodak, DMD, PA

Discover life beyond dentures and smile again with confidence

WHY CHOOSE ALL-ON-4? Modern implant-based dentistry has provided a solution to the “toothless” patient that traditional dentures have never been able to deliver - immediate functionality with substantially increased quality of life. The All-on-4 solution is attractive to patients wanting to get rid of their dentures, and to patients with failing teeth in need of a full upper arch of teeth and/or lower restoration. This procedure, as the name implies, only requires four dental implants per jaw to support a fully customized set of replacement teeth. The entire All-on-4 treatment is completed while the patient is comfortably asleep using sedation dentistry, and the patient receives a natural, permanent smile within 24 hours.

OVERVIEW This revolutionary new procedure not only provides the comfort and security a patient is likely to be missing with removable dentures, but as importantly, also preserves bone in the jaw. In addition to receiving a fully customized set of replacement teeth in just one day, another tremendous benefit afforded by the All-on-4 procedure is the ability to almost always bypass the need for bone grafting, which is a surgery frequently required by 48 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

more traditional treatments for patients with substantial loss of bone in the jaw. This bone grafting surgery is a very costly and time consuming treatment. Additionally, the procedure eliminates the day-to-day frustrations and discomforts of dentures, and patients can once again enjoy the dietary freedom of those with natural teeth.

THE PROCEDURE Traditional approaches to restoring a full arch (top arch and/or bottom arch) of teeth usually involved aforementioned bone grafts, six or more implants, and as many as 18 months of treatment. That meant that a patient often would be without any teeth or with ill-fitting temporary dentures for more than a year. With the All-on-4 procedure, the patient has one or two visits to allow the oral and maxillofacial surgeon and restorative dentist to gather information for a treatment plan (for example, CAT scan, x-rays, impressions, photos). Following this consultation, the patient is scheduled for surgery implantation and the new teeth are fitted and adjusted within 24 hours (even when extractions are necessary). The patient will return for occasional

check-ups over the next several weeks and months. After almost six months, when the gums have fully healed and the implants are fused to the natural bone, new impressions of the patient’s mouth will be taken and the dentist will prepare a final, stronger, permanent set of teeth adjusted to a perfect fit. This helps ensure the longest life of the teeth, and provide maximum support, beauty, and function to the patient. The All-on-4 procedure is the most sophisticated solution there is to total tooth loss, and, subsequently restoring a patient’s quality of life.

Crunch OR Eat Your Way to a Sexy Summer Six Pack? By Madeline Burger

We have all heard it before “I am doing hundreds of crunches a day and not seeing the sexy wash board abs that I want.” You can do as many crunches as you please but if you are not eating right your six-pack will never show its full potential. When it comes to creating that sexy washboard stomach even the most effective workouts can only take you so far!

What if I told you that you could eat your way to a chiseled stomach? With the proper workout regimen and nutrition you too can achieve the stomach that you have always dreamt about. I’m sure you have also heard the saying “Abs are made in the kitchen.” Well the saying holds truth! Listed are some key ingredients to a sixpack: *Eat More Frequently- Don’t be tempted to lower your daily caloric intake by skipping meals. Eating too infrequently can actually lower your metabolism while increasing the chance that you will get hungry. *Limit your meals out- Give yourself one meal a week to dine out and really enjoy yourself! Try to refrain from eating out multiple meals a week. Pick a day out of the week and cook ahead of time! Have large bowls of protein, veggies, and carbohydrate available in your refrigerator. It will help keep you on track and will keep you from turning to quick unhealthy choices. *Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!Water consumption is key! It helps keep your stomach full so you don’t overeat, rids of toxins throughout your body, and helps to rid excess sodium to prevent belly bloating. *Pack on the Protein- Eating lean protein such as boneless skinless chicken breast, eggs, lean ground turkey/beef, and fish promotes fat loss and muscle gain. It 50 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

also helps to keep you feeling full so you do not feel hungry and turn to foods that you should not. Try to incorporate normal portions of lean meat or fish with every meal and make sure your snacks contain some protein also! *Healthy Fats- Our bodies need healthy fats in order to function! Fats like olive oil, almonds, cashews, peanut butter, and avocados help to protect against build up of plaque in arteries and helps to prevent bell

fat! Polyunsatuated fats lower LDL, boost brain function, improve mood, and help keep skin and eyes healthy! * Carbohydrates are your friend- Despite the popularity of low carbohydrate diets the average American meal is still high in sugar and fast burning starches. Try to avoid carbohydrates that are white as these foods are stripped of their nutrients and have added sugar, salt and trans fatty acids to bring back the “flavor.” Stick with healthy grains that are on the low end of the glycemic index such as brown rice, quinoa, and sweet potatoes and try to avoid anything white. These foods will burn slowly and won’t spike blood sugar and insulin levels. *Load Up on Fiber- Do not be afraid to pack on the vegetables! Keeping your plate loaded with lots of colorful vegetables keeps you feeling full with fewer calories. Fiber keeps your digestive system working best! Let’s face it- society does not have countless hours to spend in the gym! Next time you plan to devote 20 minutes of your workout to crunches, think twice and remember abs are made in the kitchen! If you need further help look for a trainer who specializes in nutrition!

the hair you dare to wear


By mark hasche

As summer comes to a close, the holiday seasons takes hold. Here are some of my favorite hair looks to keep you on the brink of hair fashion.

For the guys, keep it classy. The classic 1960‘s look is still in. Cropped back and sides with length on top worn parted slick with a light gel or down with side swept fringe. Shaggy looks still work in some cases but the nape or back need to be cropped shorter. This will give your shag a modern feel. For color a little baliage (painted on highlights) will work for both of these styles. For the ladies, we are still loving braids and ponytails. Part your pony’s ladies; this gives your ponytail a bit more sophistica52 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

tion. If you’re really good with your hands add a few braids to that parted pony. Braids are here to stay and I could not be happier with such a versatile style. Rock this look in a multitude of styles from French to fishtail to braided up-dos. With fashion taking a classic, vintage turn I predict we will start seeing the bob on the rise. The bob is a classic look that can be seen as fashion forward. It’s also a look that conveys ones confidence in style. Side parted bob? Why not?! Side parts for everyone!

As for color trends I’m feeling that women will go darker with their color. Growing out their ombre’s, meaning, you already have 5-7 inches of dark roots. Start glossing darker locks (adding mass amounts of shine and masking the grey). Platinum blondes will now take on finer highlights and adding fine dark lowlights making them Bronde (perfect mix of blonde and brown). All these styles will make your hair sought after, but nothing is more sought after than healthy hair and scalp. Treatments and good quality shampoos and conditioners are essential to protecting your investment on your hair. Ask your stylist about in salon treatments that will leave your hair more manageable and lustrous. The last bit of advice I’ll leave you with is get yourself a Wet brush. They are brushes specifically designed for combing out wet hair, especially hair that is long and tangled. They work like magic and won’t break your hair. They are inexpensive, best summer purchase you’ll make I promise. Ok I’m tired of typing so this Divo is off to the beach! Mark Hasche and Peter DeRosa, stylists and owners of PeterMark Salon in Delray Beach, have a combined total of over twenty years of professional hairstyling experience. They have styled celebrities, appeared on TV shows, are nationally and internationally trained, and travel the country teaching a variety of classes to professional stylists.

You can’t help but notice their perfectly coiffed hairstyles, luscious coloring and styling that looks like those on the pages of Vogue Magazine. All you have to do is sit in the waiting area of this casual yet sophisticated salon and watch them go by. That’s the way it is at Tyler Presley Salon and that’s the way owner, Gloria Segura, designed it to be. “Since opening this salon over three years ago my vision was to keep educating my stylists and colorists with the latest styles and trends in hair. I want a salon that is innovative because our clients want to look young, fresh and beautiful” said Gloria. As part of their ongoing education program Gloria brings in instructors from all over the country to educate her staff and keep them updated on new trends and techniques. That’s exactly what you see when you watch their client’s walk out of this oasis of beauty. When Joan Stone left a few weeks ago there was a cheshire grin on her face and a perfectly cut bob on her head. The petite Boca Raton resident comes to see Robin Cohen once a week for blow outs and regular haircuts. “I have been following Robin around for eight years and wherever she works is where I go. I feel comfortable here and love the casualness of this place” added Stone. Robin was trained in New York as a hair stylist and colorist and has 25 years of experience. “I have a passion for what I do and I care about each person who sits in my chair. I take pride in being precise with clients and giving them the 56 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

“Airbrush make-up makes you look younger. I do it for women going to weddings, proms and sweet sixteens,” said Javier, who was trained in Paris but goes to New York twice a year to beautify a bevy of Victoria Secret models for their runway shows. Javier also worked as a master color trainer for L’Oreal for 16 years traveling around the world. But after being gone 22 days of the month he decided to stay in South Florida and work as part of the team at Tyler Presley.

ents are awed by the amount of attention they get. Alina Driver, a devoted client, has this to say about her Tyler Presley experience, “Everywhere I go people say to me, “I love your hair where do you get it done? I have faith in Andrea’s ability to always make me look great. I trust her to take me from long and drab to short and sassy. Everyone loves my new look!” Along with amazing hair care and color lines, Tyler Presley offers natural looking hair extensions by Fully Seamless. “If you want to have long luxurious tresses that fall over your shoulders and seduce onlookers then these are the ones to use. They last three to four months and have an adhesive that is comfortable and reusable. According to Alyssa there is no pulling, no damage and the extensions feel like natural hair.” If you’re looking to cut down the frizz and play up the curls talk to Amanda. She is an expert at using their newest product, DevaCurl. This state-of-the-art product is especially for those with delicate, yet headstrong curly hair and transforms its reckless ways to beautify it. “Cutting curly hair is quite different than straight hair. You have to watch the natural flow of the hair and cut it dry without combs or clips,” says Amanda.

Tyler Presley Salon offers in-house or athome make-up and hair styling for wedding, parties, or special occasions. This is what creative hairstylist, make-up artist and colorist Alyssa gets most excited about. The statuesque blond has been working at Tyler Presley for a few years and is always ready to create any special occasion up-do and beautify you with makeup for your big day.

DR. JOHN R. PASQUAL Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon By diane feen Photos by melissa korman


Quality is of utmost importance to Dr. John Pasqual. He doesn’t circumvent when it comes to equipment for his Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery practice in Delray Beach, nor does he skimp on quality when it comes to the care he gives patients.

“Too many people shop around for medical care as if they were buying a TV. We give quality care and only use premiere implants and products,” said Dr. Pasqual, who came to South Florida from Pittsburgh to open the Palm Beach Center for Oral Surgery & Dental Implants three years ago. The good news is that Dr. Pasqual’s practice continues to grow, and his skills as a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon (specializing in oral-facial surgery and dental implants) continue to bring comfort to his patients. That is why Dr. Pasqual purchased a state-of-the-art diagnostic tool called an iCat Cone Beam Imaging machine. This tool allows the doctor to know exactly where to place an implant. It is achieved through a three dimensional picture that guides the doctor and pinpoints the precise placement of the implant. “The i-Cat Imaging machine is also a great diagnostic tool for pathology, trauma, facial fractures, tumors and cysts because it shows soft tissue and bone. With the i-Cat machine it makes surgery more accurate and shows me the ideal positioning for an implant.” Tools such as the i-Cat are part and parcel of the overall philosophy of Dr. Pasqual’s practice. “We are getting excellent results in our office. The reason is that we provide excellent care. This is not a factory style dental office, we don’t do things cheaply. We are a high-end quality practice with the highest quality diagnostic tools for our patients.” That might be the reason that patients come from as far away as New York or Chicago or from local locales such as Delray Beach, Royal Palm Beach, Jupiter or Mi58 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Dr. Pasqual and his bulldog, Augustus

ami. It’s not just the diagnostic tools, or the clean pristine office off Linton Blvd in Delray Beach. It’s his expertise. Dr. Pasqual is a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon specializing in oral-facial surgery and dental implants. He is also a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Diplomate of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Diplomate of the Na-

tional Dental Board of Anesthesiology and current President of the South Palm Beach County Dental Association. He was also an honor student and graduating president of his class at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine. He won The Penhall Award for research on cleft lip and nasal deformity, The Brody Award for clinical excellence and was on the Dean’s List. But that’s not all.

Dr. Pasqual’s surgical team: Karen, Nicole, & Chelle

Dr. Pasqual did a fellowship in anesthesia at Case Western Reserve University, MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, and is one of the few Diplomats of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists in South Florida. Its qualifications such as these that allow patients the freedom to relax in the dental chair and leave the work to Dr. Pasqual. It also assures them that their worries are over when it comes to their mouth. “Dr. Pasqual is awesome, he is kind and gentle. I have always been nervous about seeing doctors and he was excellent. He put my mind at ease and took care of my needs. I’m like a new woman! The extractions went perfect and my implants are flawless! I can’t say enough about him, his office and staff are all perfect!” said one patient. Because of his dedication and superior skills Dr. Pasqual is on the medical staff at Bethesda Memorial Hospital and a faculty member and Clinical Associate Professor at the University Of Florida College Of Dentistry. This dual appointment is in the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the Department of Pediatric Dentistry. Most medical professionals who move to Florida from out of town normally go into an established practice. But for Dr. Pasqual opening a new office with no patients, but excellent equipment and skills, was a no brainer. “I looked around, but there was nothing like this practice in Palm Beach County. I just knew opening an office here would work. And it has worked beautifully. We have a successful practice and everyone who comes here is happy with our work.” You don’t have to go far to see that Dr. Pasqual is a man of his word. His patients can attest to that. “My experience with Dr. Pasqual was just first class. The office is very nice, everyone who works there is great and the care and work done was excellent. I would definitely come back here again,” said one patient. Another said, “My experience from beginning to end was 5-Star. Dr. Pasqual and his staff took good care of me. I even received two calls from the doctor to check on me after my surgery. I cherish this type of quality care from a doctor.” This type of compassionate care is one reason that the Palm Beach Center for Oral Surgery & Dental Implants is busy even in the summer months. It’s also the reason that local celebrities and sports figures find their way into his chair. The other reason is obvious. “Our prices are not extraordinary but our care is. We strive not to be the cheapest practice in town, but to be the best. We also use the highest quality diagnostic tools and products. This is all we do - we make sure the end result is as close to perfect as possible.” Dr. John R.

Back to School for

Delray Beach students By Nicol Jenkins


60 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

It’s that time of year again… back to books and homework, sports and clubs, new teachers and classmates, and for some prom and graduation. After a long sizzling summer filled with beach time and family vacations, the first day Back to School starts for students in Delray Beach and throughout Palm Beach County on August 18th. Some students will be jumping for joy to start a new year with their friends, while others might have the jitters of being in an unknown environment. Parents can help ease their children’s nerves about starting a new school year in many ways. To ease the transition from summer fun to back to school, parents can follow these helpful tips. Organize your family’s back to school schedules now. Be sure to mark your calendars now with important school dates, such as Labor Day on September 1st, and teacher work days and half days. This way you

won’t be surprised if your child gets out a few hours earlier and you won’t have to rearrange your schedule at the last minute. For a detailed calendar for the 20142015 school year, visit http://www.palmbeachschools.org/community/Calendar/ PDFs/2014-15/2014-15calendar.pdf. Adjust your child to the new routine. Beginning a few weeks before the first day back, get your kids to bed earlier so they will be adjusted to their new schedules. Also establish schedules for homework, dinner time, TV and sports times. Arrange play times for your child and their classmates and friends to meet before the start of school so they get excited to go back with their friends. Make a trip to the school campus with your child and walk around to familiarize them with the campus, cafeteria, their locker room and classroom locations. Shop early for sales on school supplies and school clothes. The early bird always catches the worm and that saying also rings true for school supply shopping. Contact your child’s school for a school supply list and get to the mall. Be sure to look for sales and clearances. Also,

check your local newspaper for coupons and deals. Keep in mind of school dress codes while shopping for back to school clothes. Some area schools prohibit short skirts, tank tops and open toe shoes for girls, in addition to baggy pants and flip flops for boys. T-shirts with certain sayings or phrases may also be prohibited at your child’s school. Visit the Palm Beach County School District’s website at http:// www.palmbeachschools.org, for additional information on school dress codes and school supplies. School meals are also an important preparation for the school year. If you are packing your child’s lunch, include healthy meal. If your children are eating the school’s meals, be sure to put aside enough lunch money and encourage choosing healthier meals. You can find the Palm Beach County Public Schools lunch menu on their website, http://www.palmbeachschools.org/sfs/index.asp. Arrange for transportation for your child to and from school or an after school activity. Students and parents will feel much better if transportation to and from school is addressed well before the start

of the school year, especially if they are walking, riding their bike or taking the bus. Find out the bus times and routes, know the bike and walking paths or chart out your carpooling plans ahead of time. Be sure to get the new bus schedules and talk to your children about bus safety and not to talk to strangers while waiting at a bus stop. If your child is walking or riding their bicycle to school, make sure they have a buddy and they are not going alone. It’s also helpful to walk or bike the course to school before the first day to familiarize your child with the route. After care or after school activities are also an important part of the planning process. Make sure to know the dates and times for after school sporting practices, games or after school club meetings so you can arrange pick-up or carpooling. If you need to utilize after care programs, some schools offer this service at the schools,

while others do not have the programs or space. Please visit this link, http://www.palmbeachschools.org/ afterschoolprogramming/documents/ AfterschoolProgrammingSiteContactList. pdf, for more information on after school care programs in your area. Your child’s school website is also a helpful resource filled with important dates, phone numbers and event information. Hopefully, this information will help your family with a smooth transition to a wonderful new school year! = www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com | Algust 2014 61

special feature ║ Alternatives To Medicine



Most smart people know the importance of nutrition, since literally “you are what you eat,” however only a small percentage of people, including medical doctors, understand what ‘Functional Medicine’ really is, and why everyone desperately needs it if you wish to live longer and stronger.

As an honors graduate from Harvard I have practiced nutrition (as a Ph.D), Chiropractic and Functional Medicine for over 30 years. Most smart people know the importance of nutrition, since literally “you are what you eat,” however only a small percentage of people, including medical doctors, understand what ‘Functional Medicine’ really is, and why everyone desperately needs it if you wish to live longer and stronger. In other words we want our patients to be as close to their genetic health potential as possible. This is a totally different goal than just relieving symptoms! You see, there are only two major causes for all conditions and diseases…nutrient levels go down and toxicity levels go up. Is your doctor trained in measuring these nutrient and toxin levels through blood, urine, saliva, kinesiology, neurological, orthopedic, chiropractic and other functional diagnostic tests? My goal at our Boca Raton Clinic, Alternatives To Medicine, is to figure out these CAUSES of disease and help educate our patients on how to cure these conditions, regardless of their labels, and get on with their lives. For example, low Vitamin D levels can increase the risk of Alzheimer’s by 77% and other types of dementia by as much as 200%! Conditions like this, and all others are never a deficiency of a patent (prescription) medication. Yet, so-called modern medicine almost always treats every disease 62 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

and condition as if it were just a drug and medication deficiency! Even the so-called normal levels of Vitamin D, for example, such as a pitiful 30 ng/dL, is merely a level that can stop rickets but is not enough for brain deterioration, nor diabetes, depression, recurrent infections, osteoporosis, or any of other diseases fostered by hidden vitamin D deficiency. This is just one of many conditions impacted by hidden nutritional imbalances. I am well trained to find these, and to help correct them quickly.

Here is just one example of how a definition of “normal” is interpreted by a conventional MD (that is, if they even bother to check vitamin D or other nutritional levels), This level is not even close to adequate for good health. As a Functional Medicine doctor, I am only interested in my patients having OPTIMUM levels of nutrients, and minimum levels of toxins. My goal is simple. I am here to help our patients LIVE LONGER AND STRONGER through the most advanced natural holistic methods that are often years ahead of the curve. If you have a physician who says you get all the nutrients you need from your diet, it may be time to look for someone else immediately. Anyone preaching this only shows that they have been living under an unscientific rock, and haven’t read a relevant medical journal article in the last 20 years! It’s time to put a holistic Functional Medicine Diplomate on your team if you want to be healthier and get the most out of your life. You deserve it. Think about this: If you wear out your body, where are you going to live!? To keep up to date, I invite you to go to our informative website, HealthIsWealthLive.com, or call our clinic, AlternativesTo Medicine, Center for Chiropractic and Functional Diagnostic Medicine at 1-800-439-0028.

AUGUST IS NOT THE ONLY THING THAT IS HOT... How About Some Sizzling Summer Bling by Trish Giando


“Treating yourself to a new piece of jewelry doesn’t always mean that it must be a holiday or special occasion.

Many of us in South Florida regard our summer season as time for fun and relaxation or catching up on incomplete projects. Wouldn’t it be nice to tie up some loose ends plus reward yourself at the same time? I am sure that you are all familiar with the expression, “Out with the old and in with the new!” Many of us have a stash of forgotten jew-

elry which includes rings, necklaces, watches and more. If you are no longer wearing most of these pieces, you must ask yourself why? Are they sentimental pieces that were given to you from generations past or are they pieces that you purchased or were gifted to you years ago that are no longer in style? Do you have an old engagement ring that no longer has sentimental value? The

good news is that all can be restored, updated or traded in! “Treating yourself to a new piece of jewelry doesn’t always mean that it must be a holiday or special occasion. It can simply mean updating or replacing an existing outof-date piece that you already own...”said owner Ken Mordechai. At Diamond’s East International, they have the expertise to reassess anything that you may have in order to restore or turn it into a new piece altogether. There are many creative and cost-effective ways to turn an out-of-date piece into a brand new, beautiful look. Pictured left to right are Liz, Robert, Samantha and Ken

For instance, there is a process called rhodiuming. It changes yellow gold into white gold (even if already mounted). This process can easily be done to all kinds of jewelry including tennis bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces and more... Diamonds East can also turn any old engagement ring into a new, stylish and trendy piece by simply changing the mounting your stone is set in. “When you replace the mounting, it changes the entire look of your existing diamond center stone. This is an economical way to obtain a new engagement ring without having to purchase a new center stone which is the most costly aspect of the ring.” said Mordechai. Ken also said that another option would be to add a halo mounting which creates an even larger look for the center diamond. Let’s talk Diamonds! It pays to be educated on what you already have or plan on buying. The staff at the store pride themselves on their extensive knowledge of the

4C’s of Diamond. (Color, Cut, Clarity, and Carat weight). They are ready for you with any questions that you may have. Need a watch? Diamond’s East is the place to go. Buying a new watch isn’t the only way to obtain a new timepiece. Bring in some of the watches in your collection that you have worn or are tired of and trade it towards a new and freshly updated model, maybe in a different look such as stainless, yellow or white gold or the newest craze rose gold. You can also update your watch with a diamond bezel or a new band as well. Diamonds East is proud to be an authorized dealer of RUBBER B, the first company to design and manufacture vulcanized rubber straps which are constructed to precisely fit and compliment the quality and beauty of many Panerai and Rolex watch models, including Rolex deployment clasps. At Diamonds East, luxury goods are always offered at great prices because of their ability to purchase these items at wholesale

prices. This allows the store to pass the savings to their clients on all custom made jewelry and pre-owned Swiss timepieces such as Rolex, Breitling, Cartier, Patek Philippe, IWC, Jaeger La Coulter and many more. “Remember that jewelry is a long-term investment that truly never loses it value. Gold, silver and diamonds have been regarded as valuable assets all over the world for centuries. These items are not only a great investment but also rewards you with a sense of pleasure and sentiment that can be passed on for generations.” says Mordechai. All jewelry sold by Diamonds East International is guaranteed and repaired at no additional cost to the customer. Diamonds East International is located at 4251 N.

They’ve been called “The Ultimate Nail Spa Experience” and there’s not much to dispute about that claim. The décor is exquisite and the peaceful calm that permeates this salon is often referred to by clients as a safe port in the storm of life. Co-owner Vivian Nguyen had that in mind when she opened the Venetian Nail Spa in the Marketplace Shopping Center a year and a half ago. And she hasn’t gone back on her word. “I treat customers how I want to be treated. It’s important that people feel welcome when they come into our salon, said Nguyen, who prides herself on greeting customers by their name. In an industry that has had a bad rap for cleanliness and friendliness Venetian has staked its reputation on a role reversal. Pedicure chairs are bleached after each customer and they get soaked in bleach at the end of the day. The nail equipment is also sterilized in sealed plastic bags and each tech uses the cleanest equipment possible. “We sterilize everything so people will have confidence in us and return. We also have relaxing music and complimentary wine or soda,” adds Nguyen. You can bet the house on that. Just ask regular customer Andie Goetz. “I come here every week for a manicure or pedicure and the great thing is that all the nail techs are so well trained. This way you don’t have to panic if your nail tech is not in on a certain day. It’s so relaxing here and I love the feeling of being pampered,” said Goetz, who was getting a pedicure with her daughter-in-law Wendy for their upcoming cruise with her two children and five grandchildren.

I am very proud of our staff – we have a good rapport with our clients – and because of that we are very busy. I am blessed to have such a wonderful staff.” Not only are the nail techs on their game at all times, but they also have a masseuse and facialist with excellent credentials.

She is passionate about her career and offers both Swedish and Deep Tissue massages in one of the two private rooms at The Venetian Nail Spa Delray. “Venetian Nail Spa is a wonderful place, and they use the best products.

She was a make-up artist for print media and weddings in Miami and ran the esthetic department of a day spa in Weston. She also worked with a cosmetic surgeon in Boca Raton and holds certifications in microdermabrasion, chemical peels, advanced waxing and more. “Skincare is my passion. I treat every person as a unique individual with different needs, but the goal is to achieve the best results.” Albury’s goal is similar to that of Nguyen’s – perfection.

Florida and railroads have a rich history. By LINDA BROWN


Florida’s east coast was developed in large part because Henry Flagler built a private railroad that connected Jacksonville to Miami, allowing real estate at every stop to thrive.

Now, more a century later, Florida East Coast Industries, a company descended from Flagler’s empire is attempting to build a passenger railroad that would connect Miami to Orlando, with stops in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach. Proponents of All Aboard Florida argue that passenger rail will relieve congested highways by enabling people to ditch their cars and hop aboard a train that will get them from downtown Miami to Orlando in about 3 hours. The train is also seen as a boon to Fort Lauderdale and West Palm enabling what is known as transit-oriented development (TOD) to take root in those communities. TOD calls for a mix of uses around a transportation hub such as shops, offices, residential and dining—all

done without the need of a car. Back in 2001-02, when Delray was developing the landmark Citizen’s Downtown Master Plan, residents and leaders called for a passenger rail station in downtown Delray. Two sites, one near Sun Trust and one near Ocean City Lumber along the tracks were chosen as possible locations. But now that passenger rail may finally become reality as a result of All Aboard Florida, local residents and others across the state are crying foul. First, the train will not stop in Delray Beach, but will speed through the downtown on the way to West Palm. For local activist Alan Schlossberg that means noise and delays as local motorists and pedestrians have to wait for the train to speed by Atlantic Avenue and other crossings. “Basically, we are trying to get the word out and derail this very unnecessary project that plans to have a total of 46 trains running along the east rail road tracks 24/7 at a projected cost to taxpayers of $1.5 billion dollars which will probably continue to increase,” says Schlossberg who is assisting Florida Not All Aboard, an organization that is trying to raise awareness of the project and get cities like Delray to take action in opposition to the plan. According to Florida Not All Aboard, there will be 32 high speed passenger trains running daily through Delray from Miami to Cocoa, plus an additional 13 or 14 freight trains. FECI is still trying to finance about 40 miles of track to complete the hub to Orlando. Schlossberg notes that passenger rail already exists between Orlando and Miami via Amtrak.

Florida Not All Aboard founder K.C. Traylor was recently in Delray Beach asking the City Commission to formally oppose the project. At press time, it was unclear what if any action the commission will take. In addition to railroad crossing delays, opponents worry about noise pollution with loud train horns required to warn motorists and pedestrians when the trains pass through. Prior to FECI’s proposal, local mayors up and down the coast had hoped for passenger rail service to their cities. Former Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle convened mayors from West Palm, Delray, Boca, Boynton and Broward cities years ago to lobby FECI, then owned by Flagler Industries. Passenger rail was seen as a boon to east coast downtowns as workers, shoppers and diners could leave their cars behind and have dinner at places like Atlantic Avenue. But with the trains zooming by, at least initially, those dreams will have to wait. Says Not All Aboard’s Traylor: “My goal is to unite our communities up and down the coast and to change the course of All Aboard Florida. We need to stop this project from destroying our communities as we know them today. People are simply not aware of this project. I followed a gentleman out of the commission meeting who was part of the Delray Beach Restaurant Association. He was very alarmed about this project and had not heard of it until I spoke at the meeting! This project will double track through the center of Delray Beach, add more trains and the restaurants have no idea. This is unacceptable. This project has flown under the radar for two years. Our communities need to know.”

We are living in food obsessed culture. By LINDA BROWN


From the Food Network and celebrity chefs to green markets and community gardens, we are a food driven culture. Delray Beach is no exception.

In fact, Delray Beach’s downtown renaissance was led by food and beverage with codes that relaxed parking rules, allowed for sidewalk cafés, created a valet system and encouraged restaurants to take a chance on Atlantic Avenue and later Pineapple Grove. Today, more than 130 restaurants are in the downtown area, making Delray a culinary destination that draws huge crowds year round. Now, that success seems to be entering a second phase that includes a thriving CRA sponsored Green Market, several new private grocers, food related media properties and even a craft brewery—Saltwater Brewery. Here’s a capsule look at some of the food trends impacting Delray Beach:

Grocers There was a time, not too long ago, when the only Delray Beach supermarket option was Publix or Winn Dixie. Albertson’s came and went and while Western Beef was courted for West Atlantic Avenue the deal never happened. These days, Publix and Winn Dixie have competition from the likes of Walmart which opened a neighborhood grocery on South Federal Highway, Target which has expanded its grocery options, Aldi and Delray newcomers Fresh Market and this Sept 5, Trader Joe’s at Linton Boulevard and Federal Highway. Trader Joe’s has become a hugely popular brand, with dedicated fans. But until recently, the chain hasn’t had a presence in the Florida market. A majority of the products stocked at Trader Joe’s are private label brands free of artificial colors, flavors, ingredients, and preservatives. Since its launch in 1958 in the Los Angeles 72 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

area, Trader Joe’s has expanded to more than 390 stores in 35 states. Josef Mayer is a recently relocated Angeleno who is excited to see this piece of the Golden State coming to Delray. “Trader Joe’s is just a great retailer,” says the marketing consultant. “They don’t have customers, they have fans and pretty soon you’ll see why.” Smaller markets such The Boys and Bedner’s Farms also have its share of fans and Delray’s Green Market is more popular than ever in its downtown location.

Community Gardens Delray Beach is home to a few community gardens in which people rent plots and grow their own vegetables. The Swinton Avenue Community Garden occupies a prominent spot on North Swinton. The new Frog Alley Community Garden has become a popular spot for neighbors to gather and swap advice on how best to grow plants and vegetables. Organizer Pablo Del Real encourages sustainable, organic gardening. Frog Alley is a program of Sow Share, a Delray Beach nonprofit organization devoted to continuing the work of Gandhi & Martin Luther King. The Frog Alley Garden is located at 250 SW 4th Avenue. Media While most local magazine and newspapers feature food and restaurant coverage, there are two local media properties that are devoted solely to food, restaurants, gardening and farming. Delray Beach entrepreneur Irene Revelas

recently launched Edible Palm Beach, a glossy publication devoted to food, chefs, gardens, and agriculture and craft purveyors. Edible is part of a national movement of magazines, websites, podcasts and TV shows dedicated to food topics. Locally, Joe Stout, a video producer, has developed a web property called Food Beat, which chronicles the burgeoning and ever changing Delray Beach restaurant scene. The site features video reviews and behind the kitchen stories about local restaurants.

Craft Brewing Saltwater Brewery, 1701 West Atlantic Ave., is Delray’s first foray into craft brewing. But the craft trend is prominent at many local restaurants and bars, including Park Tavern, Coffee District and Delray Beer Trade. The Delray Center for the Performing Arts holds a Beer Fest that celebrates the trend and this fall will see the debut of a new Delray festival called “Bacon and Bourbon.” So what’s next? Well, some locals are hoping food manufacturing and entrepreneurship. Jim Chard, a Delray resident, is hoping to find a location and investors for a concept called “Food Factory” which would spotlight local purveyors. The concept has worked well for cities including Winter Park, Orlando and Brooklyn, N.Y. Stay tuned.

By Gary Schweikhart

Delray Beach’s popular On The Avenue will return to West Atlantic Avenue this month, celebrating the start of the new school year with outstanding local entertainment, great food and activities for all generations.

“Our theme this year is ‘Back to Cool,’” said Stephen Chrisanthus, associate director of the Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative, which produces On The Ave. “It ties in with our ‘It’s Always Cool in Delray Beach’ summer campaign and lets people know that there will be cool things happening at On The Ave.” Set for Thursday, Aug. 21, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m., On The Ave will be held at the Elizabeth Wesley Plaza, and on Southwest 5th Avenue, which will be closed to traffic from Atlantic Avenue to Southwest 1st Street. “This is going to be a fun night in Delray Beach with the same cool feel and hot entertainment visitors to all our On The Ave events are used to,” Chrisanthus said. “It’s a chance for everyone to come out and feel the cool vibe of Southwest 5th Avenue.” On The Avenue will be packed with a full schedule of musical entertainment and will also have activities for both children and adults, including games that are a bit of a throwback to the days before video games. “There’s going to be a mix of “old school” games that parents used to play, with music and dancing that are popular today,” Chrisanthus said. For youngsters, On The Ave will feature an expanded Kid’s Corner with face painting, 74 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

street chalk artwork, a photo booth and lots of crafts. To keep things really cool, there will also be a Splash Zone with giant beach-ball sprinklers and beach ball giveaways. Entertainment at On The Ave will include performances from local children’s groups as well as performances coordinated by Delray Beach’s Arts Garage. Among those performing will be local favorites, “Double Trouble” as well as the Arts Garage’s Drew Tucker and Plaid Blazer. The Arts Garage will also bring its Instrument Petting Zoo to the event. Emcee James T. will be back again this year to help keep the party going. “The music will be a combination of “Old School” and “New Cool,” Chrisanthus said. “We’ll be playing some old hits with a new spin.” Local community organizations, including the Spady Museum, the West Atlantic Redevelopment Coalition (WARC) and Delray Beach CRA will present displays and activities. Visitors can paint pots and plant seeds at The Frog Alley Community Garden display. There will also be a chance to take a photo in front of the DBMC’s “Hot Here” backdrop. For those who work up an appetite during On The Ave, there will be an assortment of food trucks and local restaurants on hand offering tasty treats. Guests can visit the Burger Fi Food Truck or stop by the Keurig Brew It Up van for a free cup of coffee. Visitors to the area will also get a chance to

stop by local shops, which will stay open late. “Moving On The Ave to West Atlantic Avenue gives our local merchants a chance to reach new audiences during the summer,” says Stephanie Immelman, executive director of the Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative.

Caring And Professional

ASSOCIATES OF INTERNAL MEDICINE By Diane Feen Photo by melissa Korman


You hear a lot these days about the medical profession. Some of the news is good and other times what you hear is not very complimentary.

There is one thing, however, that every patient wants, and that is a good caring doctor. They also want a doctor who doesn’t fly out of the room after eight minutes and doesn’t keep you waiting for months when you have an emergency. That’s why Dr. Joanna Widdows opened up Associates of Internal Medicine in Delray Beach. Dr. Widdows was born and raised

in West Palm Beach and did her residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital and Mt. Sinai Hospital in Miami. She was the Program Director and teacher for medical students and residents at Wellington Regional Medical Center for 14 years. “Our goal is to make going to the doctor a smooth process that flows naturally for our patients.

The staff of Associates of Internal Medicine goes the extra mile for everyone. We make sure each patient is treated as a family member,” said Dr. Widdows, who attended college at University of Michigan and Medical School at Nova Southeastern University in Miami. The result is that this Internal Medicine practice continues to grow to meet the needs of the community. Recently they added a new doctor to their office, Arpit Patel, DO. Dr. Patel did his internship in internal medicine in Dr. Widdows’ office and is a well rounded primary care doctor now working fulltime at Associates of Internal Medicine. Not only do they have two doctors in the practice, but there is a nurse practitioner who is beloved by all. Elaine Fredrickson, ARNP has worked with Dr. Widdows since 2003 and joined the practice full-time last year. “Elaine gives compassionate care to people of all ages. Many of her long term patients have followed her to our office because they know she is the best,” said Dr. Widdows. You don’t have to convince Carrie of that fact. She learned it firsthand. “I love Elaine and will travel to the moon and back to see her, distance will not keep me away.” There are plenty of people who are smitten with this family-style medical practice. They like the fact that patients can have an assortment of important tests in the office instead having to see a specialist. Patients also like the kind caring compassionate treatment they get at Associates of Internal Medicine. Some of the specialized tests given in the office are Electrocardiograms, Pulmonary Function Tests, Ear Lavages, Lab Services, Nebulizer Treatments, Glaucoma Checks, most vaccines and other routine medical tests. They also do high school

sports physicals and college physicals for budding young leaders of tomorrow. Another state-of-the-art feature at Associates of Internal Medicine is their patient Web Portal. This has been created for patients to be able to have 24/7 access to their charts, x-rays and other tests. “The web portal is an important tool in assisting patients so they always have a list of their medications, important lab tests and are able to access their records for emergency room or specialist visits. We encourage our patients to sign into the web portal and become familiar with their medical records,” said Carlos Fernandez. There are other advantages to this family friendly medical practice – and one of them is that patients are monitored and cared for. We make sure our patients receive the response they need and answer all their medical questions. We like our patients to have labwork a week before their appointment so results are available to discuss at visit. It is important to be able to answer all medical questions and build a confidence with patients by addressing all their concerns, said Dr. Joanna Widdows. Some of these changes are dietary and others are related to exercise and main-

tenance of healthy living habits. According to practice patients are monitored to make sure their blood work is good and that their medications are adjusted if necessary. “We try to empower the patient to help them live healthy lives. If it means suggesting Weight Watchers and exercise for their health issues we do what is needed to have them live their best life.” As a teacher and program director for medical students and residents Dr. Widdows is adept at explaining the process of disease to patients. “It’s my nature - and is very important to me - to help patients understand their conditions and illnesses so they can take better care of themselves. For in-depth care we are thorough, and if the diagnosis is more serious then we spend time talking about specialists we have lined up to take care of a patient. This way they know we will be there from the beginning of the process to the end of treatment.” The staff of Associates of Internal Medicine has been known to go the extra mile for patients. That is why their staff is highly trained to meet each patient’s medical needs. When you walk into the office you will be warmly greeted by Gina. Following

registration you will get an annual prevention exam and complex care: that includes testing for diabetes, thyroid disease, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, osteoporosis and more. Penny Tomasino is also part of the team. She does check-out and referrals and has worked in the medical community for 30 years. “Our staff provides efficient and thorough care with a warm and caring family feel. We have expanded quite a bit over the past few years and our terrific staff is highly trained to meet all of your medical needs,” said Dr. Widdows Their patients tend to agree. “Associates of Internal Medicine has a lovely staff that gives me the personal care I need,” said Cindy. “I trust Dr. Widdows and am very thankful to have her as my doctor,” said Michael. Jennifer also feels blessed to have found Dr. Widdows. “After going crazy with another medical practice, I finally found one who cares and goes above and beyond.” Associates of Internal Medicine 13660 Jog Rd.

City People



The New Delray Beach Director of Planning And Zoning By Diane Feen


Photo by melissa korman

Dana Little has always known there is a time and place for everything. It’s as much a part of his being as the oxygen he breathes.

There’s a good reason. His father John was the Planning Director of Coral Gables and he wanted to make sure his ten-year-old son had a scale, a triangle and a T-square. These tools helped Dana create floor plans for his father’s small side jobs. But it was many years later in high school (in South Dade) that Dana really made up his mind to become an architect. The defining moment in his life that paved the way for his career in city planning and zoning was a shout not a whisper. “I grew up in the suburbs and as a kid it was difficult to navigate without a car due to poor suburban planning. We were completely auto-dependent and without a car you were a second or third class citizen. Florida cities are starting to address re-urbanization so people can live independently without a car.” A case in point – according to Little – is West Palm Beach. “We have a downtown trolley that connects people in West Palm Beach and assisted living facilities so they can get around without a car.” As the former Director of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council and Urban Designer for the city of West Palm Beach, Little has always been a cheerleader for downtown development that resulted in a win-win for both businesses and residents. Luckily for city dwellers Little rarely sits on the sidelines. Instead he plays a pivotal role in devising ways to make city life joyful for everyone. In 2001 he was involved in Delray’s Downtown Master Plan to expand the city and address the controversy of development. According to Jeff Perlman, former Mayor of Delray, “The city had just

August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

finished a hugely controversial and contentious process relating to Worthing Place, the first large mixed use project on Atlantic Avenue. The size of the project (six stories and over 90 units per acre) divided the town.” Little was one of the people chosen (along with others) to hold educational seminars and create a design studio so citizens could watch architects, urban designers and planners sketch out ideas from the public. “Dana was at the forefront of this effort, working hand in hand with our community, planning staff and CRA. He has a great feel for people, understands town planning and new urbanism, and has an innate talent for creating places people like to be,” adds Perlman. This sense of place and priorities has always been a passion of Little’s. He was raised with a stellar work ethic and a sense of public service. “My father John was proud of being a public servant and always said it was an honorable profession.” His son seemed to imbibe similar principles. He knows that public service is a high calling and he has created legendary city services and ideas. Little was instrumental in the Marin - St. Lucie 2035 Regional Long Range Transportation Plan, the South Florida East Coast Rail Station Charrettes, the Downtown Riviera Beach Citizen’s Master Plan, CRA Plan and Form-Based Code, and the Broward Blvd. Gateway Master Plan. His work has not only been recognized by his peers, but the Florida Chapter of the American Planning Association gave him the Award of Merit in 2013 and the Award of Excellence in 2006. In 2005 he received the John Nolen Medal for Contri-

butions to Urbanism in Florida. Those around him are not surprised. “Dana is the smartest, most thoughtful, hardworking public servant I have ever had the privilege of working with,” said Michael Busha, The Executive Director of the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council. “He’s funny, a gifted public speaker and puts people at ease with his knowledge. He’s also a great listener and has expertise in city and urban design, a rare combination.” Because of his humility and dedication Little is the last person to toot his own horn. He rarely talks about his accomplishments and when asked what he is most proud of he says: “My two children, tenyear-old Aiden and eight-year-old Lauren.” But if you ask those who know him you will hear accolades usually reserved for ones eulogy. “Dana is the complete package. He is talented, hard working, has an incredible sensibility for authentic architecture. He also understands what it takes to make a place not just good, but great. I took him on every job I had (until we hired him) because I knew I could count on his opinion to bounce off the difficult issues in different communities,” said architect Marcela Camblor, of Marcela Camblor Associates. As the incoming planning and zoning director of Delray, Little will get to exercise his expertise in keeping Delray Beach the ideal place to live, work and play. He knows that Delray has a strong urban fabric, yet understands the need to keep business in play. “The best cities are a big collection of neighborhoods. You have to be discerning about growth and development.” Like most love affairs you have to understand the boundaries and needs of everyone involved. Luckily for Delray, Little has the knowledge (and passion) to keep Delray thriving without compromising its integrity. He is also quick to note that the awards he has won were a collaborative effort. “Everyone has a role, a place and skill-set to be utilized to make our cities better places. South Florida has unique challenges for growth and mobility. You can’t build your way out of congestion – you have to address it.” If you ask others about Little’s ability to rise to the challenges that will affect Delray in the future Busha has some thoughts. “Delray is lucky to have Dana. But people need to support and trust him; he has spent his life working at making cities bet-

ter all over the country and the world.” Keeping true to his humble roots Little credits some of success to others. “My wife Anthea (an architect) is the brains behind the operation. We have worked together in six or seven jobs and have known each other since college. And, my mother Caroline was my rock who taught me proper English (she taught English at my high school).”

If life is a mirror then it is easy to see how both Dana and Anthea are public servants with a supreme desire to make cities live up to their full potential. Camblor agrees. “I know that Dana has the ability to take Delray Beach to the level of competitiveness and resilience that only Delray can achieve. He will make sure that the city preserves its Village by the Sea character throughout this process.” www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com | August 2014

Come Taste A Bit Of Italy

SCUOLA VECCHIA By Diane Feen photos by melissa korman


When you have passion for your work it becomes a labor of love. That’s why Sharon Aloisio opened one of the first (and only) Neapolitan-style pizza restaurants in South Florida. Called Scuola Vecchia, this bastion of Italian fare is over three years old, yet is still feels like a start-up.

The reason: Aloisio is always on the hunt for new menu items, authentic recipes and recently added an Italian Master Pizzaiolo (pizza chef). “I am in love with Italy; their pizza, their culture, their people and their way of life,” says Aloisio, who is always on-site greeting customers or behind the scenes whipping up a plate of homemade lasagna or fettuccini. That’s how Aloisio rolls. She is no stranger to hard work and enjoys showcasing a 200-year-old tradition of pizza making that hails from Napoli, Italy. That’s why she bought 90

an authentic wood burning oven in Italy made of volcanic stone that heats up to 950 degrees and cooks pizza in 90 seconds. Aloisio also uses authentic Caputo flour pizza dough that has less carbs (and fat) than traditional pizza dough. Add that to the fresh homemade mozzarella cheese and imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes and you have a real culinary gem. “We are just back from Bologna and Scuola Vecchia serves better pizza than anything we had there. The pasta is great too! It’s the best in Delray. This is an owner- managed restau-

rant, not a chain and the owner is always on site. We found this place friendly and welcoming, it’s a terrific,” said Sue from Washington. It’s comments like Sue’s that keeps Aloisio thinking up new menu items and unique offerings in this quaint intimate setting. Her new Master Pizzaiolo, Roberto Canonito used to be a Scuola Vecchia customer, but is now part of the team. Like the oven (and the flour) Canonito is from Italy and has been making pizza since he was a teen. He worked at the famed Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles and has a passion for Italian culture and its culinary fabulousness just like Aloisio. The other exciting news at Scuola Vecchia is that they have created a new menu to be unveiled this fall. Included in the new menu will be a traditional Italian Brunch (think pizza with two eggs on top) as well as Panini’s. We recently got a glimpse (and a sample) of the Panini’s and they are terrific. Made with Italian pizza dough and heated up in their sizzling Italian oven they come to the table begging to be devoured. The Panini Estivo is made with fresh homemade pesto sauce, prosciutto cotto and fresh caciocavallo cheese. The Caprese Panini is also terrific and is made with fresh spring mix, homemade mozzarella cheese, fresh basil, imported olive oil and has a balsamic glaze. Not only is everything made fresh, but the warm

pizza dough makes this Panini a real treat. That’s the difference with an ownermanaged restaurant. You get farm fresh ingredients and everything is made perfect to please. It’s also the reason that new items are tested and refined to make your taste buds rejoice. The newest pizza, called The Romeo, is named after Aloisio’s grandson and is a testament to amore. Made with homemade mozzarella cheese, potatoes, fresh rosemary and pancetta, it is simply divine. Light and tasty The Romeo is sensational. And in the fall you will find that it is part of the line-up for brunch combined with that secret something that makes the word breakfast a headliner. Although Scuola Vecchia was created to showcase (and savor) the pizza of Naples, Aloisio added pasta dishes to the menu. Made with homemade pasta and adorned with sauces that are light, tasty and mouthwatering each one is terrific. Some of the favorites are the vegetable Lasagna, fettuccini Bolognese and homemade meatballs. “I have people who come into the restaurant and tell me our pasta sauce and pizza reminds them of their family’s recipe from their Italian homeland. I have a customer who comes every week for Veggie Lasagna and another one who comes two times a week for the fettuccini Bolognese or meat lasagna,” said Aloisio. It’s easy to see why they have such rabid fans. The food is made with love and is seasoned delicately not drenched in heavy sauces or thick dough. They also added a $6 Happy Hour menu from 5pm to 7pm that includes a choice of salad, antipasti, pasta or special pizza. Also new is a wonderful private label Scuola Vecchia wine that comes in either white or red. Unlike most private label wines this one is excellent and won’t disappoint.

They also have a full selection of Italian wine and beer to quench your thirst. “We have grown and evolved. My dream was to bring a piece of Italy to Delray Beach and make authentic Napolitano pizza. We are so happy with our success. Everyone who works here loves what they are doing,” said Aloisio. That passion is pretty obvious to those who dine there. “Eating at Scuola Vecchia was a total ‘party in my mouth.’ I was so unbelievably happy to find that the pizza was just as amazing as I remembered it. We ordered a Keste, a Prosciutto e Arugola, and a Prosciutto di Parma – and all were out of this world. The service was fantastic and the food couldn’t have been better,” said Sarah of Delray Beach. There are a lot of reasons to come to Scuola Vecchia. There is a fabulous selection of red and white pizzas, a full antipasti menu, wonderful fresh salads and desserts that make one remember why Italy is for those who appreciate the finer things in life. Their flourless Chocolate Caprese Cake is beyond verbal exaltation (made with almond flour, topped with chocolate glaze and sprinkled with powdered sugar). They also have Pizza Dolce (sweet ricotta cheese and sliced almonds drizzled with honey and powdered sugar), Angioletti con Nutella, pizza Nutella and a scrumptious homemade Tiramisu. Come to where Italian food is celebrated and revered. You’ll leave a little happier and a whole lot more fulfilled. As they say in Italy – Benvenuto!

Are the Raw and Fresh Food Warnings Over Stated?


e keep hearing the warning bells from the FDA concerning food contamination and recalls. Many of the messages focus on only a small segment of food production and that is the meat and poultry category. They warn against handling the raw meats and poultry that we fix for our pets and ourselves and also highly discourage feeding or eating raw or “undercooked meats and poultry.” Is this danger to the level that the FDA is making it out to be? Let’s look at the science first. We live in a bacteria filled, pathogen laden world. In fact a healthy human body contains more bacteria cells than blood cells. It’s actually an important part of our basic physiology that keeps us healthy. We have things like e.coli, salmonella, and many other strains of bacteria in our digestive tract that are there to aid in the digestion of foods. We are confronted with these pathogens as we go through a normal day. Tests show that everything from tables to doorknobs, eating utensils, cutting boards, swimming pools and even our lawns contain a plethora of pathogens. Now let’s look at the diets of every living creature on this planet. Every creature eats raw food for its’ entire life except for humans. In nature there are no microwaves, ovens, processing plants or food additives. There are no medical

centers, supplement shops or any drugs prescribed. There is usually only rare incidence of true disease outbreaks and yet these creatures have thrived throughout time. If foods in nature are healthy enough to feed our natural wildlife and allow them healthy offspring and long lives, where does the problem begin…and what can you do to provide yourself and your furry family members a safe food? Let’s look at the warnings themselves. The FDA says that we need to handle our natural products in very specific ways to avoid contaminations of our bodies from the food. “Wash your hands thoroughly after handling meat or poultry and completely cook it well done to kill the bacteria.” They are in charge of inspecting and approving our food as safe. Are they saying their methods and inspections are that flawed? Is our system of sterile food processing facilities worse and more contaminated than the field where a wolf just killed a rabbit or a deer? How about our own hunting populous and farmers? Are they more at risk when they process their own meat at home? Statistics from the FDA itself show most recalled products over the past ten years are processed foods including dry and canned pet foods, made in these safe facilities from inspected ingredients. You can visit this website

to see for yourself: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/ recalls/default.htm Meanwhile, you never hear of raw, fresh meats or poultry being recalled because of contamination. Our system of CAFO (concentrated animal feeding operations) is producing animals with weak immune systems that are compromising our food system because of the agencies that are responsible for protecting us. Instead of challenging the system that is producing harmful pathogens, they are attempting to convince us that we need to be protected by more processing . To learn more visit: http:// en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Concentrated_Animal_ Feeding_Operation. The answer as always is clean, organic, locally raised, freshly produced species appropriate diets for ourselves and for our furry and feathered friends. Remember that education is the key to maintain good health. There are many sources besides us that are available in print and on the worldwide web.

misc ║ s-i-n-g-l-e By Nicole Flier

A Single Girl’s Guide to South Florida and Beyond... It’s Not Me, It’s You! Get the Pitcher? Cindy, a single, 45 year old professional, attractive woman from Boca was tired of hearing her parents tell her she was too picky and needed to get out and date more. In an effort to fill the menu with more choices, she reluctantly joined Eharmony. After conversations with a few different men to get her feet wet and get the EHARM flow, she decided to finally meet one in person. Dave was a 49 year old, divorced professional with no children living in Pembroke Pines. On paper, a good catch! From the start, the conversations were light and fun and upon meeting, there was a strong physical chemistry. Within a month, they had been on a few dates and things were beginning to look promising. On a recent Friday night, Dave invited Cindy to dinner near his home. Cindy happily volunteered. One glass of wine, led to another and another and by midnight it was clear that Cindy had to make a responsible decision to spend the night with Dave and not try to “MacGyver” 95 late at night. Well kudos to Dave for insisting Cindy stay over and for having the class to bring out a fresh set of sheets. During light conversation, Dave indicated that he needs to relieve himself several times a night and that he has a pitcher on hand by his bedside. Blinded by the most disturbing reality; the evidence on the nightstand. There in all its glory was the glass pitcher. When Cindy recollected this story, I couldn’t hold my laughter at bay. She proceeded to tell me that when she saw it, her first instinct were that things were going to get real kinky, real quick, as the night progressed. (Anyone heard of a “golden shower”)? She inquired further and would have probably accepted a twisted sexually driven reason but when the truth actually came out, her fears were even more confirmed. Apparently Dave expressed to Cindy that he is just too lazy to get up and pitter pat106 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

ter to the bathroom. He conveyed that he empties the gas tank via nightstand and confirmed that his last girlfriend didn’t mind. In utter disbelief and complete mortification, Cindy intimated her displeasure and disgust and kindly requested that he refrain from engaging in this practice that night, while she was his house guest. It’s pretty obvious when a flame goes out. It’s safe to say that this was the defining moment for Cindy. “Where you go from here” she silently reasoned with herself. Too tipsy to drive home, she got into bed, turned her back to him and willed herself to sleep, hoping not to smell the sweet scents of airborne yellow goodness permeating thru the master bedroom, in the dawns early light. When morning came, she tiptoed around the side of the bed, and low and behold she saw the pitcher on the floor, nearly ¾ full. Remember the Road Runner cartoon? After quick verbal “good morning”, she bolted as fast as she could –skids marks on the driveway. She texted

Dave later in the day to start the breakup process, but he never responded. As I write this article, he still hasn’t surfaced. He must be upset at Cindy for confronting this unsanitary situation. Looking back on this, it’s actually quite funny. Is this what dating has come to in 2014? Do people have bizarre and sometimes unsanitary habits that rear their ugly heads sooner than later? Are there women out there who do similarly disgusting things? Perhaps! Is Cindy being too picky per her parents? Cindy shared this with her Mom and her response, “There are no words…” The lady doth protest too much, me thinks? Me thinks, NOT! I am not trying to judge but unless you have thrown out your back or are bed ridden for something medical, then there is really no excuse. What’s even worse is that Dave didn’t hide his shame but rather acted as though this is acceptable behavior for a grown adult with two working legs and the ability to take a short walk to one of 5 bathrooms in his 5,000 square foot home. Unless you are Anton Jackson (Damon Wayans character on In Living Color), the gross drunken homeless person who lives in a corrugated cardboard box and frequently carries his “personal facilities”, a jar that he used as a toilet which seemed to contain a pickle and brine- then face it, you have NO Excuse. Maybe Dave needs “Depends”? I think Costco might be running a bulk special this week. Don’t miss out! Nicole, a card carrying “California Girl” was born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles but now is officially a “Boca Girl”. A graduate of the University of Southern California, Nicole owns a private consulting firm, “Flier Consulting”, which specializes in business development, marketing, public relations and special events. Nicole is an avid tennis player; enjoys working out, traveling, and spending time with family and friends. She is also single and ready to find “Mr. Right!”

ARTS ║ THE Pineapple People

Pineapple Grove has come into its own as a destination within Delray Beach. But it didn’t happen overnight. Many people from all walks of life have worked hard to make Pineapple Grove what it is today, a laid back arts district where you tend to find locals shopping and dining. They all have one thing in common….they are all characters. Over the next 12 months we’ll meet some of the Pioneers, the Godfathers and the Sons of Anarchy who made it happen. By Stephen Chrisanthus

The Hair-razors When it comes to keeping The Grove looking good, these gentlemen are a cut above the rest. They love what they do, and love where they do it. Meet Antonio Lanzetta who has taken a straightedge approach to grooming at his exclusively for men, Lanzetta’s Barbershop. Alex Hussey is the shear genius behind Blush Salon. He has been practicing the art of beauty for over 30 years. And when Peter and Mark “paired” up to create PeterMark Salon, another Pineapple Grove house of style was born.

Antonio Lanzetta

Besides the trendy shops, spectacular nightlife, and great restaurants, I love the sense of community Pineapple Grove has to offer. The locals have become an extension of our family and I’m honored to be a part of it. There’s nothing I’d rather do, it’s my passion.

Alex Hussey

I love the walkability of the neighborhood and that we are an interconnected community that is not at odds with each other. If we are booked I have no problem sending business to my neighbors down the street.

Here on Atlantic Ave we are all fortunate to be surrounded by great local businesses that have close ties with each other and make it feel like family. PeterMark Salon has been a part of Pineapple Grove for over 5 years. Nothing feels more right than to call this place our home.

People Matter


If I’ve learned one thing in my career, it’s that you can have the best systems, the best platform, a great idea, plenty of money and every other advantage but you’ll fail if you don’t attract and keep the right people.

It’s a simple concept, really. But very difficult to achieve. Yet, whether you are running a business, a city, a school or a non-profit you will not be able to achieve lasting success unless you create a culture that attracts, nurtures, rewards, ignites and inspires people. Good people. And if you work hard enough and create just such an environment, you have to realize that your creation is fragile and will not survive complacency or lack of accountability. If you fail to constantly iterate, engage and assess, the gains you made will erode. Achieving success is just one part of the journey; the key is to sustain success. That’s the prize and it is hard to attain. But worth the effort. For many years, the cities of Boca Raton and Delray Beach worked with a consultant named Lyle Sumek. Lyle was a former assistant city manager in San Diego and he worked with cities across the country on goal setting and implementation. Lyle had a concept he called “municipal math”; which essentially said it could take 20 plus years to build something of value, but only a year or two to squander what was built if you make the wrong decisions or hire/elect the wrong people. The sad part of municipal math is that once you mess up, it could take 10 years or more to get something back and there were guarantees you would. Municipal math was a sobering concept and it stuck with me. Leadership matters. People matter. I’m a firm believer that leadership is the key ingredient to success in any endeavor, but I also believe that we do a poor job of training and developing leaders. We don’t teach leadership in schools, we don’t study why leaders succeed or stumble, but yet we long for great leaders.

110 August 2014 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

I can think of no other scenario in life in which we yearn for something but don’t take steps to make it happen. If we want better medical outcomes, we invest in science. If we want better educators, we invest in teacher training. In business, we invest in products and technology. But yet we don’t make a similar investment in identifying, training and developing leaders. As a result, we watch helplessly as Congress fails miserably to serve our country. We shake our heads when presidents, governors, mayors and other elected officials fail our communities. In business, we see investments go down the drain; victims of egotistical CEO’s or watch in disgust as a manufacturer looks the other way and produces cars that endanger their customers all because of a culture that enabled people to look the other way. All are symptoms of poor or inadequate leadership. I believe that we need to start studying and investing in leadership education and that we need to make such courses available far and wide, in all industries and endeavors. We live in a great nation. Imagine how much better it would be, how many problems would be solved, how many people would be positively impacted if we were able to develop leaders as accomplished as our best coders, financial minds and scientists. Just imagine.
