Allow Me To Introduce Myself With much excitement and honor, I’d like to introduce myself

as the new Editor of Atlantic Ave Magazine. Our beloved former Editor has left me with very large shoes to fill, but I am ready for the adventure.

I am not new to Atlantic Ave Magazine. My former position as

Associate Publisher has been a wonderful learning experience and preparation for my new position.

Back to our regular programming...

Welcome to our May issue of Atlantic Ave Magazine!

In May we celebrate Mom! With so many things to do in

Delray, it will be very easy to make Mom feel special on her day.

There are many wonderful restaurants to choose from, that will

satisfy any food or craving she may have, and salons and spas to beautify and relax her.

In this issue we dine at Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza, sampling

their traditional Italian recipes and enjoying every last bite! We visited with the Delray Beach Director of Emergency Management Steve Hynes and learned about his background and the important plans he has in place to preserve and protect our

beautiful All America City in case of any emergency. And...for

you foodies with a sweet tooth, we have an amazing super easy

make ahead breakfast casserole that is sure to make your morning just a little bit better!

Have a lovely May, enjoy the Ave, the beach, and don’t forget

to “call your mother”!

Longines Future Tennis Aces Hosted By The City Of Delray Beach

8 May 2016 |

And Representing The United States In Paris is… Before the first ball was struck in April’s round-robin matches, we knew we would have a player we would be proud of representing the United States in Paris when the dust settled in Delray. Sportsmanship was as abundant as a new brand of tennis we saw. The 2016 Longines Future Tennis Aces hosted by the City of Delray Beach delivered an aggressive, winning brand of tennis we haven’t seen in the 12’s, at least of this character. Nerves held in the no-ad format when the next point wins a game. And these girls were going for it, not waiting for mistakes. In the end it was Nikki Yanez, Florida’s lone entrant in the elite 8-player event, who stood up to a field of incredible athletes from across the U.S., defeating Katrina Scott (Woodland Hills, CA), 6-3, 6-2 in the championship match at Delray Beach Tennis Center. The Sarasota kid lost the first set of her first match and then reeled off eight straight sets to finish the event with a 4-0 record. So much for being a gracious host. And the scary part for her fellow competitors is that she practices four hours a day…on gymnastics. A latecomer to tennis, Yanez practices her craft on court only one hour a day.

Congratulations to all our players who earned their way to Delray and proved their case with each match. And good luck to Nikki Yanez, United States’ official entry into Longines’ 16-player international event played during the French Open, “Roland Garros” – A once-in-a-lifetime, all expenses paid (travel, accommodations, food for them, plus a parent/guardian) trip to Paris, France from Monday, May 23-Sunday, May 29, 2016. Match play in Paris begins May 26, 2016. Complete tournament information including results can be found at the following: http://www.yellowtennisball. com/longines/.

sign up to fly a passenger to a medical appointment any day of the week. Some flights require multiple legs and these volunteers play an important role in coordinating the trips with precise timing so their passengers arrive safely and on time,” said Steve Purello, CEO of Angel Flight Southeast which is based in Leesburg, Florida. “Often pilots will fly the same passenger to multiple appointments and they develop close relationships with the patients and their families and friends. While the pilots often say their reward is the smile or hug from the passengers, we want to recognize each of them for their unselfish dedication to our Angel Flight Southeast passengers.” For information about the event or to learn more about Angel Flight Southeast, please call 352-326-0761or visit http://

The Morikami Gets Ink’d at New Tattoo Exhibit!

Perseverance: Japanese Tattoo Tradition in a Modern World, which runs through May 8.

24 May 2016 |

At 75, the blues/jazz legend is among the most distinctive and influential electric guitarists to arise in the past four decades. The American jazz, free-funk, and blues guitarist and singer has been influenced largely by Jimi Hendrix. While he started his career playing in funk bands in Pennsylvania and Ohio, he moved to New York and turned his focus to jazz, playing with both Art Blakey and with John Coltrane’s former drummer. In the early 1970s, Ulmer became the first electric guitarist to record and tour extensively with Ornette Coleman, who he credits as a major influence.

This exhibition explores the artistry of traditional Japanese tattoos along with its rich history and influence on modern tattoo practices. Perseverance underscores Japanese tattooing as an art form by acknowledging its roots in ukiyo-e prints and examining current practices and offshoots of Japanese tattooing in the U.S. and Japan. As Japanese tattoos have moved into the mainstream, the artistry and legacy of Japanese tattooing remain both enigmatic and misunderstood. For more information call 561-

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 May for $50 or less.

h, sweet beer. You’re the perfect pal for pool, beach or festival days, and just about every occasion in between. Even though you’re celebrated all the time, here’s a week for you – and me. American Craft Beer Week is May 16-22 and you are more than welcome to peruse the many restaurants that have beer on tap and find a new favorite. If you want to get the pre-party started, mark your calendars for the Delray Beach Craft Beer Fest. Held Friday, May 13 at the Old School Square Pavilion and Park, you’ll have front row access to unlimited samplings of more than 100 craft brews, international beers and ciders from national, local and home brewers. As if that wasn’t enough,

26 May 2016 |

there’s also a DJ and live music, wine tasting, pub bites, photo booth, live art, game area and cash bar. The Fest will mark its fifth year as a signature fundraiser supporting community programs and outdoor concerts, so bottoms up for a good cause. You’ll have from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. to enjoy as many frothy brews as you can, and tickets start at $35 when purchased in advance (must be 21 and older). The Pavilion and Park is located at 51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit or call (561) 243-7922 for more information.


am literally obsessed with salads. I’ve eaten a salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner before and had no qualms about it. May is National Salad Month and if you’re looking to introduce more leafy greens into your life or get some new ideas for your salad nights at home, you have tons of restaurants downtown for your herbivore pleasure. The southwest chicken salad from Deck 84 is one of my favorite salads on the Avenue. Served with roasted corn, black beans, vine ripe tomatoes, roasted chicken, chipotle lime barbeque glaze, avocado, cheddar-jack cheese, crispy tortilla and a cilantro-buttermilk dressing, it’s just a really delicious and fresh salad for $15. If you’re in the mood for a classic salad, Park Tavern has one of the best Caesar salads on the Avenue. Served with Parmigiano, sourdough croutons, a lemon-anchovy dressing and blackened chicken (my $6 add on), it’s the perfect blend of creaminess, brightness and spice for $9. For a super light salad, head to Senor Burrito. Leave it to me to go a Spanish restaurant and order a fish salad but it’s worth the stares from the flaming fajita goers. The mahi salad is grilled mahi atop romaine, avocado, tomato, feta and blue cheese with their house vinaigrette, which is the key to the salad, for $11.25. Whatever your salad pleasure, summer is the perfect time to munch on some vegetation so go out and taste your options. Deck 84 is located at 840 E. Atlantic Ave.; Park Tavern is located at 32 S.E. Second Ave.; and Senor Burrito is located at 142 S.E. Sixth Ave. Visit www. for more information, and happy salad munchin!


iesta, fiesta! May is National Salsa Month and what better time to indulge in this fabulous treat than on Cinco de Mayo. I don’t care if the salsa is red or green, spicy or salty, I put that stuff on everything. If you haven’t yet finalized your party plans, grab your sombrero and tell the friends to meet you at El Camino for their annual Cinco de Mayo Festival of the Year. They are sure to have drink specials, decorations and good times, but let’s not forget about the food. Do yourself a favor and order the charred tomatillo salsa and morita salsa with homemade chips (for only $3) to get the mouth party started. Take a stab at the carnitas enchilada that comes with Mexican rice, choice of salsa roja, salsa verde, creamy tomatillo or mole negro, pinto, black or refried beans, sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo for $14. Or for something a little lighter, go loco for their crispy fish tacos with salsa fresco, chipotle crema and shaved cabbage for $12. That’s a whole lot of salsa flavor! El Camino is located at 15 N.E. Second Ave. and is open late for your fiesta festivities. Visit www.elcaminodelray. com or call (561) 865-5350 for more information.


t’s a breath of fresh air when you can envision, create and complete a project, and hopefully enjoy it for many moons to come. May is Creative Beginnings Month and if you’re in a ho-hum rut, now is the time to paint yourself out of it. Inspiration is everywhere, but if you want a weekend jammed packed with it, head to the 19th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Craft Festival. The Festival is held Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and features paintings, jewelry, glasswork, pottery and much more. You’ll be able to get your weekend outdoor fix, enjoy the possibilities of new beginnings and can even treat yourself to lunch afterward so you can plan your new creative beginnings. There will even be a market of sauces, handmade soaps and live orchids, so you can bring something back to your abode for future enjoyment. Best part is that the Festival is free so take pleasure in letting out your free spirit. The Festival is located at the Delray Beach Tennis Center, 201 W. Atlantic Ave. Visit or call (561) 7466615 for more information.


ace up the sneaks because you’ve got a beautiful 5K to run. May is Family Wellness Month and what better way to spend some quality time with the family than getting exercise, fresh air and a chance to say you bettered someone else’s life. The Fourth Annual Firefighter Eric Patrie 5K is held Saturday, May 14 and you are invited to show you support. Firefighter Eric Patrie lost his battle to brain cancer in 2012 and the Delray Beach Firefighter’s and Paramedic’s Benevolent organized this 5K to assist Eric’s family, and now, also to local firefighters battling cancer. The event takes place in Anchor Park at 7 a.m. and features a free kid’s fun run, sponsors, vendors, fire trucks, raffles, face painting and much more.

Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market 10066 Lee Road, Boynton Beach, FL 33473 561-733-5490 381 N.E. 3rd Avenue, Delray Beach, FL 33444 561-501-5177

y name is Steve Bedner and I’m proud to be a 4th generation farmer and a native of South Florida. My family has been farming in Palm Beach County since 1960. At first it was just my parents, Art and Henrietta and over the years we’ve grown into a family business. Mostly we grow bell peppers and cucumbers which are primarily distributed on the east coast. In 2010, our business diversified and we opened the first farmer owned and operated green market in Boynton Beach. Besides shopping, you can take a hay ride around our 80 acres and see what we’re producing. We have a u-pick of strawberries, tomatoes, peppers and sunflowers seasonally. We also harvest a vast array of products daily. Recently we’ve expanded again, opening another market in Delray Beach. We offer the same delicious home grown and locally grown produce that is tasty, yet affordable, as well as grocery items, wine, and prepared foods. When you shop at Bedner’s, you can be certain that you’re purchasing from a safe and reliable food source. Our family grows from seed to table for your family to enjoy and we are open all year round!

30 May 2016 |

hile performing as a singer on a cruise ship in 1991, I met my soon to be wife, Susan. We were married six months later and decided to make South Florida our home. Soon thereafter, we began our growing family. And although show business is still in my blood, (I continue to perform locally when my schedule allows), I needed to get a “real job”. I began, what became a 22-year career in the automotive industry, from Salesperson to Sales Manager and eventually, General Manager, for luxury brands such as Mercedes Benz and Lexus. During this time, I had the opportunity to get to know the tastes and lifestyles of those folks who call our part of the world, Home. In early 2005, I got the real estate bug where we purchased and sold over $50m of real estate in less than two years. I have made the leap as a full-time realtor and love it! I’m thrilled to be joining the prestigious firm of Posh Properties, in downtown Delray Beach where I will bring my passion for the people, places and homes that make up our little piece of paradise that is South Florida. | May 2016 31

Zero K

by Don DeLillo Released May 3 2016 The wisest, richest, funniest, and most moving novel in years from Don DeLillo, one of the great American novelists of our time— an ode to language, at the heart of our humanity, a meditation on death, and an embrace of life. Jeffrey Lockhart’s father, Ross, is a billionaire in his sixties, with a younger wife, Artis Martineau, whose health is failing. Ross is the primary investor in a remote and secret compound where death is exquisitely controlled and bodies are preserved until a future time when biomedical advances and new technologies can return them to a life of transcendent promise. Jeff joins Ross and Artis at the compound to say “an uncertain farewell” to her as she surrenders her body. “We are born without choosing to be. Should we have to die in the same manner? Isn’t it a human glory to refuse to accept a certain fate?” These are the questions that haunt the novel and its memorable characters, and it is Ross Lockhart, most particularly, who feels a deep need to enter another dimension and awake to a new world. For his son, this is indefensible. Jeff, the book’s narrator, is committed to living, to experiencing “the mingled astonishments of our time, here, on earth.” Don DeLillo’s seductive, spectacularly observed and brilliant new novel weighs the darkness of the world—terrorism, floods, fires, famine, plague—against the beauty and humanity of everyday life, love, awe, “the intimate touch of earth and sun.”

Valiant Ambition: George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and the Fate of the American Revolution by Nathaniel Philbrick Released May 10 2016

46 May 2016 |

From the New York Times bestselling author of “In The Heart of the Sea” and “Mayflower” comes a surprising account of the middle years of the American Revolution, and the tragic relationship between George Washington and Benedict Arnold. In September 1776, the vulnerable Continental Army under an unsure George Washington (who had never commanded a large force in battle) evacuates New York after a devastating defeat by the British Army. Three weeks later, near the Canadian border, one of his favorite generals, Benedict Arnold, miraculously succeeds in postponing the British naval advance down Lake Champlain that might have ended the war. Four years later, as the book ends, Washington has vanquished his demons and Arnold has fled to the enemy after a foiled attempt to surrender the American fortress at West Point to the British. After four years of war, America is forced to realize that the real threat to its liberties might not come from without but from within. “Valiant Ambition” is a complex, controversial, and dramatic portrait of a people in crisis and the war that gave birth to a nation. The focus is on loyalty and personal integrity, evoking a Shakespearean tragedy that unfolds in the key relationship of Washington and Arnold, who is an impulsive but sympathetic hero whose misfortunes at the hands of self-serving politicians fatally destroy his faith in the legitimacy of the rebellion. As a country wary of tyrants suddenly must figure out how it should be led, Washington’s unmatched ability to rise above the petty politics of his time enables him to win the war that really matters.

turns with an electrifying and addictive tale of deceit and obsession In downtown Chicago, a young woman named Esther Vaughan disappears from her apartment without a trace. A haunting letter addressed to My Dearest is found among her possessions, leaving her friend and roommate Quinn Collins to wonder where Esther is and whether or not she’s the person Quinn thought she knew. Meanwhile, in a small Michigan harbor town an hour outside Chicago, a mysterious woman appears in the quiet coffee shop where eighteen-yearold Alex Gallo works as a dishwasher. He is immediately drawn to her charm and beauty, but what starts as an innocent crush quickly spirals into something far more dark and sinister than he ever expected. As Quinn searches for answers about Esther, and Alex is drawn further under the stranger’s spell, master of suspense Mary Kubica takes readers on a taut and twisted thrill ride that builds to a stunning conclusion and shows that no matter how fast and far we run, the past always catches up with us in the end.

Healing with Light


By Dr. John Conde

The therapeutic use of light, photobiomodulation (PBM), has been utilized in Europe for over 40 years and recently gained FDA clearance in the United States in 2002. In essence it is the use of specific wavelengths of light (red and nearinfrared) to create therapeutic effects in damaged tissue through the enhanced metabolism of local cells, increased blood flow, and increased immunity.

Improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation, and decreased swelling are just some of the positive effects experienced by most patients. This cutting edge technology is revolutionizing the treatment protocols of simple strain/ sprains to chronic debilitating joint and disc disorders. A laser is any device which can be made to produce or amplify electromagnetic radiation in wavelengths ranging from 180 nm to 1 mm by the process of controlled stimulated emission. These wavelengths of light contain tiny particles called photons. These photons stimulate certain receptors or sensors on the mitochondria in cells thus enhancing energy production and metabolism. The type of cells affected depends on the tissue which is targeted by the laser. For example, in individuals with acute or chronic lower back pain the cells affected include those in the spinal joints and discs as well as the ligaments and tendons that surround the spine. This ensures healing at the level of the injury and not just a masking of the symptoms. Laser technology is classified based on the wavelengths of light that the unit is able to produce as well as the power it is able to emit. The larger the wavelengths of light the greater the penetrating depth into the tissue and therefore the more effective the treatment. Shorter wavelengths of light treat more superficial injuries whereas longer wavelengths treat deeper injuries including fractures. The power emitted by the unit also has a large impact on treat48 May 2016 |

ment time, healing time, and overall success. Generally more power equates too faster treatment times and most importantly shorter healing times. Which means the patient gets better faster. Classes range from I-IV. Class IV lasers usually emit from 5-12 watts of power and offer longer wavelength capabilities. The Conde Center For Chiropractic Neurology offers Class IV laser technology. Effectiveness of laser therapy has been demonstrated scientifically. In-fact there are thousands of published studies dem-

onstrating the clinical effectiveness of laser therapy. Among these, there are more than one hundred rigorously controlled scientific studies that document the effectiveness of laser therapy for many clinical musculoskeletal conditions. Laser therapy can benefit conditions ranging from carpal tunnel syndrome to knee pain to back pain.

Tales About Nails


By Thomas C. Balshi, M.D.

There is much more residing in our nails than the color we choose or the date of our last manicure. Nails are telltale of wellness and may be the first clue that an underlying disorder is present. Changes in natural color, thickness or shape sometimes point to conditions like anemia, diabetes and heart disease. Watch for these warning signs often appearing first in fingers and toes.

1. Dark Streaks Many people, especially those with darker skin tones, have harmless vertical bands running from the base to the tip of the nail. In rare instances, a similar band could signal an aggressive form of skin cancer called Melanoma. The appearance of a new band plus a family history of Melanoma calls for an immediate visit to a dermatologist. 2. White Lines Single or multiple transverse lines called Mees’ Lines occur in the nail plate and move out as the nail grows. These lines can indicate kidney disease or arsenic intoxication. Muehrcke’s Lines are pairs of white lines in the nail’s vascular bed that don’t migrate. Classically they indicate kidney or liver disease. 3. Club Nails Fingernails that have taken on a bilateral swollen appearance (bulb-like) are called Club Nails. Most often, they indicate low oxygen in the blood and possibly an underlying respiratory disorder such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or even lung cancer. 4. Spoon Nails Medically, this condition is known as Koilonychias. Spoon Nails take on the shape of a spoon, that is they are concave enough to hold a drop of water. Most commonly they point to anemia linked to an iron deficiency. Anemia can result from nutritional deficiency but could also occur from stomach bleeding, gastrointestinal cancers or celiac disease. 5. Splinter-like Lines Trauma, such as slamming a finger in a door, is the most common culprit for the 50 May 2016 |

creation of reddish brown vertical lines in the nails; however they also may indicate a heart infection known as Endocarditis. 6. Yellow or Green Discoloration Changes in nail color may point to a bacterial, fungal or yeast infection. The color will appear in the undersurface of the nail plate and at the edges of the nail. Infectious causes should be cultured and treated to prevent complications. Diabetics are prone to suffer from nail infections.

7. Pitted Nails Nails having small round pits are often seen in patients with Psoriasis, a condition associated with skin plaques. Nail pits are also frequent in Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune hair loss condition. Injections of corticosteroids directly into the nail beds usually resolve this condition. 8. Splitting Nails Ironically, people worry most about splitting, brittle, soft or thin nails, none of which indicate disease or deficiency. These conditions occur after repeatedly having wet hands, which slowly remove natural skin oils present in the nail plate. Brittle nails can also occur from too many harsh manicures or from acrylic nails. Breakage can be prevented with the use of oils and moisturizers or by wearing gloves when performing chores. Biotin, a Vitamin B supplement, is known to strengthen nails, but it might also help to take a vacation from manicures! While we tend to think of nails just as part of a cosmetic routine, the health of our nails ultimately belongs with the monitoring of our dermatologist. It would suit us to occasionally peer beneath the polish and make certain the natural colors are in line with overall good health. If left wondering, remember this: your skin specialist is also your nail specialist. Dr. Thomas C. Balshi 4665 West Atlantic Ave. 561-272-6000

Do you have dental restorations?


BY Juan Cabanillas, DDS

There are new guidelines for how to care for and maintain your restorations.

There are roughly 120 million Americans who are missing one or more teeth and now have crowns, bridges or veneers. However, only recently have there been established guidelines for proper care and maintenance of these dental restorations. The American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) has created updated clinical practice guidelines that are aimed to keep restored teeth healthy and strong through lifelong athome and professional maintenance. After all, no one wants to have additional work performed on their restorations due to improper care or neglect. Published in the Journal of Prosthodontics, the new guidelines are actually pretty simple and straightforward. The most significant detail is that they urge dentists to

52 May 2016 |

educate patients on how to best care for their restorations at home. Many patients may believe that because they have a crown, for instance, that they can’t have any decay because the tooth is no longer there. However, the crown is merely a “cap” on your natural tooth, and the natural tooth can still get a cavity or infection. Patients who have had dental work are encouraged to visit their dentist at least every six months for clinical examinations to clean, adjust, repair or replace their restoration. If followed properly, the guidelines are aimed at protecting patients from doing permanent damage to their remaining teeth and, in turn, helping them maintain their natural teeth for as long as possible. A summary of the guidelines include: • Get a dental exam and cleaning at least every six months • Follow your dentist’s at-home maintenance recommendations • Brush your teeth at least twice a day with a toothpaste containing fluoride • Floss your teeth at least once a day • Use a mouthwash recommended by your dentist • Wear a night guard regularly if recommended by your dentist to protect your restorations Additionally, it is also very important to your overall health that you do not smoke or chew tobacco and avoid a high-sugar diet. A recent 17-year study confirms that implant failure rate is roughly 90 percent less in patients who actively participate

in a maintenance dental program as compared to patients who did not. As people live longer, so should their restorations – if cared for properly. The guidelines are in place so patients can hopefully avoid the treatment, expense and process of getting another restoration simply due to the lack of regular professional and at-home maintenance. Prosthodontists are highly educated dentists who were selected after dental school to become dental specialists. It takes three to four years of advanced residency training beyond traditional dental school to become a prosthodontist, who is a specialist in solving oral health issues such as replacing missing or broken teeth with implants, crowns, bridges or veneers. They are also considered pioneers of digital dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and oral health solutions. The new guidelines were created by a panel of experts from the Academy of General Dentistry, the American Dental Hygienists Association and the American College of Prosthodontists. Until this point, there have been no clear, evidence-based guidelines that dental professionals can encourage their patients with restorations to follow. The overall goal is to provide preventative dental care strategies in the form of oral hygiene and professional dental care that enhances patient care and overall quality of life. If you want to avoid repetitive restorations, follow the at-home guidelines and make sure you see your dentist regularly. It’s never too late to get started with a healthy oral care regime and your dentist is here to help you maintain your smile for a lifetime.

Stop The Excuses


By Ashley Sica

I often hear people talk about wanting to be fit, healthy and in shape but then its shortly followed by excuses as to why they are not. Not enough time in the day, no motivation, traveling…there will always be obstacles! Let this be the month where there are NO excuses.

If bikini season and this hot Florida weather isn’t enough to motivate you to get in shape, then find something that will. Here are some tips to help overcome some of the “excuses” that I commonly hear. 1. “I don’t have enough time” A one-hour workout is 4% of your day! Not so bad when you look at it in those terms. I find great success in working out early in the morning before my day starts. It’s one less task that I have to worry about and it feels great to check it off your list. If early morning workouts aren’t for you, maybe a mid-day workout would be best on your lunch break. Find what time works best for you and stick to it. It’s true when they say, “The only workout you’ll regret is the one that didn’t happen.” 2. “I travel too much” These days little to no equipment is needed for a sufficient workout.

“Excuses didn’t get Dawn her amazing transformation. She’s one of the hardest working people I know!” 54 April 2016 |

If you’re traveling and the hotel doesn’t have a gym, workout in your hotel room or go for a quick run if it permits. I have written many “hotel” workouts for my clients while they are traveling. If you don’t have a personal trainer to write your workouts get creative and write your own. Think bodyweight exercises- squats, pushups, lunges, dips, etc. Make sure to get your workout in at the beginning of your day to ensure it gets done. As far as nutrition goes when you’re traveling, always pack healthy snacks with you such as fruit, nuts and protein powder. If you will be having an extended stay in a hotel, make sure there is a refrigerator in the room and hit the nearest grocery store to stock up on healthy snacks. 3. “I have no motivation” Motivation comes from within, so dig deep and find it. Grab a friend who has likeminded fitness goals and workout together. Having someone to hold you accountable is very valuable. Have a dress you’d like to fit into? Hang it somewhere where you’ll see it everyday. Set small goals for yourself that are attainable. Once you reach these goals your motivation level will increase. However, it takes time to see results so be patient and don’t be so quick to throw in the towel. Give yourself at least 8 weeks to see any noticeable changes. I challenge you to take the “No Excuse” stand and push yourself. Get up an hour earlier and start your day off with a workout. On your next trip or vacation set a goal of getting sweaty a certain amount of days. Make it a point to eat healthy when traveling. Set a vision for yourself with small attainable goals along the way. Don’t let silly excuses stand in your way of looking and feeling your best.

Living a ‘green’ lifestyle means more than just eating organic vegetables. It can mean a healthier life, more fresh ingredients for a local restaurant, or a brighter environment at your home.

Green Living Technologies International delivers ‘green’ projects to local businesses and residents. Like the name, Green Living Technologies International encompasses everything involving ‘green living’. The company with a presence in New York, Delray Beach and projects around the world, offers Green roofs, Green walls, Urban Farming, Roof Top Agriculture and Vertical Farming using the patented GLTi Green Living Wall systems. Many of their projects can be seen at Delray Beach businesses, residential, restaurants and even schools including green walls at Atlantic Community High School, 56 May 2016 |

One Aveda Salon, and Tryst. Green Living Technologies International continues to evolve as a leader and solutions company by providing intelligent green technologies. A green living technologies application can secure the balance between community, education, economics and environment. GLTi provides quality market driven solutions with a goal to bridge community involvement, provide learning opportunities, and create jobs without impacting the environment. GLTi has representatives and installers globally who have attended the GLTi Certification Training. Their green walls and green

roofs have been installed in over 13 countries, including iconic projects like the PNC Bank Green Living Wall, the 17,000 square foot Green Living Wall on the Intercontinental Hotel in Santiago Chile and our Green Living Roof Panels atop the third largest green roof in Canada (68,000 sq. ft.) for Sysco Foods outside of Vancouver BC. They even have a Green roof design at the Florida Marlins stadium. “The company’s goal is to have a presence throughout the state of Florida, and to continue growing in the City of Delray Beach. Our main goal is to start a vertical urban farm here in Delray and work with the restaurants to have a real farm to table experience,” said Glayson Leroy, Head of Business Development for the state of Florida

for Green Living Technologies International, adding, “We plan to open an office in downtown Delray Beach. We have a corporate office in New York and work with multiple gardeners and roof companies throughout the state, and have projects around the world. We brought it to a level where farming is a reality not just a dream, and we’re excited for the future.” Green Living Technologies International can customize any commercial or residential project, whether working on a small roof or a larger space. “There are many benefits to green living. Aside from better air quality and a one-of-a-kind living art, a green roof saves 7 percent per year on electricity, can retain 70% of a storm event preventing runoff; and it also replaces green space for birds and fauna,” said Glayson. The green based company was founded 17 years ago by George Irwin a landscape contractor and teacher by trade. A client asked for a roof garden and after working in Europe, Mr. Irwin came back to the United States and reinvented rooftop gardens with the patented green living roof system. “The founder simplified green roof installations with a strong yet flexible application, advancing to sloped green roofs thus the green living wall was born. With the use of the patented green living wall, Mr. Irwin took advantage of the space savings of the vertical orientation to grow food in the walls. His love of education and food created an entire industry around vertical farming. Currently GLTi works with companies and schools to provide education and learning opportunities around organically grown food,” said Glayson, adding, “Our goal is to provide vertical farming in Delray Beach where local businesses won’t have to buy certain products out of state.” Some Delray Beach businesses have already gone green and Green Living Technologies International has created green walls at their eatery. “We absolutely love our green wall! Glayson has been so thoughtful and understanding when it comes to matching all of our plants with our Aveda Mission. He is extremely professional and friendly. We look forward to seeing him every week when he stops in to maintain our plants to make sure they are beautiful week after week,” said Ariel Jarvis at One Aveda Salon. “Not only does the herb wall look and smell amazing, but using freshly clipped herbs still warm from the sun gives our food an outstanding herbaceous pop. Most places use fresh herbs, but it’s out of a bag that’s been sitting in their walk-in. The flavor is incomparable,” said John Thomas, Head Chef at Tryst. Go green and change your life for the better with the help of Green Living Technologies International. Green Living Technologies International 800-631-8001 ! | May 2016 57

Walking through the doors of Nicole’s Gallery & Boutique, one might feel like they are stepping into a luxury boutique in Paris or New York City.

Nicole Azria and Fee

That was the vision of owners, Nicole and Simon Azria, who wanted to bring high-end fashion and art to the City of Delray Beach. The Azria’s chose to open their hybrid gallery/boutique in Delray Beach because of the city’s art, culture and amazing atmosphere. Their goal is to bring some of their international culture into the arts district. Ever since its opening a year ago, Nicole’s Gallery & Boutique has impressed shoppers with high quality women’s and men’s apparel, exquisite art, one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories and unique gifts that can’t be found anywhere else.

Dress to impress in Orlebar Brown men’s shirts, shoes and board shorts, Alberto belts from Italy, Herve Leger couture dresses, Haupt designer shirts from Germany, high quality Villebrequin brands, and Illuminaria perfume from Los Angeles, among many more high quality designers. Some of their specialty gift items are Martone cycling bikes which come in a variety of colors, gym and yoga clothing, exquisite perfume bottles, jewelry from local artists and around the world, handbags, fashion books, shoes and many more accessories. Nicole’s Gallery & Boutique recently celebrated its one-year anniversary of being in business and has expanded to offer more space for gallery art. Some of the art that

can be found includes bronze sculptures, breathtaking paintings by the owner herself under the name N. O’Hana, porcelain plates signed by Picasso, blown glass pitchers, paintings from renown artists Caroline Benchetrit, Simon Rob and much more. Known worldwide for designing fine fashion, owners Nicole Azria and her husband Simon Azria, brother to Max Azria of BCBG, bring an international sensibility and offer a European experience at Nicole’s Gallery and Boutique. The Azria’s ran BCBG International for many years, expanding the brand and acquiring the famous fashion house, Herve Leger, before relocating to South Florida. A renowned artist and designer, Nicole has created masterpieces sold around the world. She designed and owned a boutique on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, where she created many new fabrics and applications. “What inspired us to open a gallery and boutique was that we really wanted to be in Delray Beach. We visited the city often and enjoyed everything about Delray, but noticed that there were many fun stores on Atlantic Avenue but not a unique chic boutique with a gallery. We finally decided to open a small boutique and then wanted to expand it to offer a one-of-a-kind gallery. We loved Delray Beach and wanted to have a unique boutique where people can just visit,” said Nicole. “What makes us unique is that our inventory is from all over the world and the U.S. I chose items that I like and that are made of great quality. Many women don’t like going to the department stores. They want to be helped by knowledgeable staff that can help them find something especially for them for a special occasion or any occasion,” said Nicole, adding, “Many of our customers come here because they like to be helped and we are more like personal shoppers that help facilitate our customers’ fashion looks!” Many times customers will come to the boutique gallery for a dress and leave with a gift for their husband and a painting for their home. “You can find everything at Nicole’s Gallery & Boutique from a dress, shirt, gym clothes, bicycle, to a nice piece of jewelry or a present for a friend. Many of our customers are amazed by our gallery and art,” said Nicole. The owners will continue to impress their customers and visitors by continuing to stock the boutique with new clothing and art, hosting many charitable events, and they will soon be expanding by adding a

It’s rewarding to be able to give something unique, and our customers say we are one of the most beautiful boutiques they have ever seen,” said Nicole, adding, “We offer something that is different in Delray Beach; it’s something you would see in Paris or New York. There is not a boutique gallery nearby that provides this kind of concept, complete with renowned artwork,

specialty gifts and a juice and coffee bar.” Stop by Nicole’s Gallery & Boutique and prepare to be amazed by a truly one-of-akind shopping experience!

Since the practice’s inception in 2010, the group has grown to six board certified dermatologists, two who were raised right here in Boca Raton: Dr. Elissa Schwartzfarb Norton who graduated as Valedictorian of Spanish River High School, and Dr. Elizabeth Lebrun Nestor who graduated at the top of her class from St. Andrews High School. They both pursued undergraduate degrees at prestigious universities; Dr. Norton attended Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dr. Nestor Cornell University. Fifteen years later both doctors are back in Palm Beach County and thrilled to be lead-

ing members of Siperstein Dermatology Group. “I feel fortunate to be back in beautiful sunny South Florida, pursuing a career I love. Each day in Dermatology provides a wonderful variety of conditions and procedures ranging from full skin examinations to treating rashes, performing Botox and fillers. Not only am I blessed to be doing what I enjoy, but I have joined other dermatologists who share the same philosophy that I have to provide the highest level of personalized dermatologic care,” said Dr. Norton. Dr. Nestor agrees. “We are all adamant that the patient comes first. I am happy to

be part of a practice that gives me time to perform thorough skin cancer exams and educate my patients about the importance of sun safety and recognizing worrisome moles.” Both Boca Raton born and bred doctors completed their medical education at the University of Miami School of Medicine. “After years of excelling academically and surviving the brutal winters of the Northeast we both decided to come back to South Florida to be near our families,” said Dr. Nestor. Both doctors were inducted into the elite Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honors Society and completed their training at the University of Miami Department of Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery, one of the nations’ top ten dermatology residency programs. During their training, Dr. Norton and Dr. Nestor were devoted to medical research. Dr. Norton spent three years doing graduate research on cancer genetics at Harvard and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, while Dr. Nestor completed a year-long fellowship in a science lab studying wound healing. Both doctors also have an unending compassion for their patient’s. That devotion is what drew them to practice at the Siperstein Dermatology Group. To hear Dr. Norton talk is to know she is right where she belongs. “At this practice we spend a lot of time with our patients and are focused on their care. We don’t rush them in and out of the room;

we examine the whole body and do a full skin exam. We spend as much time with each person as is medically necessary. We don’t double book patients – Your time is yours,” said Dr. Norton. Skincare is at the forefront of this Dermatology Center in both of their offices in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach. The new Boynton office is strikingly beautiful and is as elegant as a Hollywood Day Spa. But it wasn’t happenstance that this luxe space with the soaring 10-foot ceilings and magnificent interior turned out so splendid. It was the master plan of its namesake. “Siperstein Dermatology Group fulfills my vision of creating a practice with integrity and the highest ethical standards. Our focus is on compassion, respect and individualized first-rate medical care for each patient,” said Dr. Robyn Siperstein-Paul, who designed and built the Boynton office so her patients would feel comfortable and pampered. You could say her mission has been fulfilled. The Siperstein Dermatology Group has expanded rapidly and clients are extremely happy with their dermatological care. The practice has grown to six board-certified dermatologists, two physician assistants and two estheticians that practice in both their locations. The Siperstein Dermatology Group treats all skin problems from rashes, acne, skin cancer detection and Mohs Surgery to cosmetic services. They also have a non-surgical way of eliminating a double chin by using Kyebella, XTRAC® laser to treat psoriasis and Blue Light treatments for pre-cancers. They also have Hydrafacials, Photofacials, Injectable fillers and more. Siperstein Dermatology Group also offers free Lunch and Learn sessions on important dermatological and cosmetic subjects. On May 25th, Dr. Nestor will talk about Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention, and June 15th it is about Photofacials (treatment for brown spots). “Our job is not only to recognize patterns in skin cancers and rashes, but also to educate patients on sun protection and cancer prevention,” said Dr. Nestor, who has diagnosed five melanomas in the past month. The Siperstein Dermatology Group invites you to discover a unique medical experience different from the norm. You’ll luxuriate in individualized attention from doctors who are compassionate and brilliant when it comes to getting you the right treatment for optimal skincare results.

Mother’s Day in Delray BEACH “It’s not easy being a mother. If it were easy, fathers would do it.” - From the television show The Golden Girls. We agree with the Golden Girls and that’s why we offer these ideas for Mother’s Day.

Dining Options

There’s no shortage of options for a memorable Mother’s Day brunch, lunch or dinner in Delray. Frankly, you cannot go wrong taking Mom to virtually any restaurant in Delray. Our tip is simple: make a reservation. Delray’s culinary reputation makes it a Mother’s Day hub so early reservations are a must. The good news is Delray offers all sorts of options: beachside dining, downtown sophistication, ethnic cuisine, garden views, golf course views—it’s all right here.

62 May 2016 |


While flowers, food and greeting cards are de rigueur, you’ll also want to make sure you take care of mom with a beautiful gift. We recommend that you shop local this Mother’s Day season. You don’t have to venture out of Delray to find jewelry, fragrances, fashion and more. In a shameless plug, we urge you to use Atlantic Ave magazine to comb for ideas and deals. And tell them we sent you!



Once again, Delray is chock full of pampering options from yoga and fitness classes to massage therapy and skin care treatments—take your choice. Surprise Mom with a gift certificate and make sure to add a gift card for lunch.

We always recommend a visit to our jewel, Old School Square. Treat Mom to a membership, purchase a ticket to an upcoming show or simply visit the museum. You will not be disappointed. Or better yet, show your love by naming a seat in the Crest Theatre after your Mother: Call 243-7922 for more information. To get a taste of Delray’s diversity, visit the S.D. Spady Museum on Northwest 5th Ave. And for something different, check out the Morikami Gardens. Always a delight. If nature is Mom’s thing, don’t forget the Sandoway House Nature Center on A1A.

As a matter of fact the General Contractor and Real Estate Development Company has made a rather large imprint on the Delray landscape from all sides of the sea. The most notable (in a public sense) is the opening of the new Stuart and Shelby Theatre at the Arts Garage. That’s just the tip of the community iceberg, so to speak. President and Founder of Stuart & Shelby Chuck Halberg has been notorious in reaching out to non-profit organizations and educational programs to lend a helping hand to those in need. Those who have been touched by his generosity see Halberg as a saint (in the mortal sense of the word). “The Stuart & Shelby name has become synonymous with reliable support in the non-profit world. Chuck has supported the Achievement Centers for more than a decade and I cannot recall a time when we’ve reached out for help and he didn’t re-

spond with an enthusiastic, ‘I’ll take care of it.’” said Stephanie Seibel CEO of Achievement Centers for Children & Families. If Karma is something to be celebrated then what goes around has surely come around. Stuart & Shelby recently expanded their office space from 500-square-feet to 1,250-square-feet and are in the midst of expanding their staff. “We get a lot of referrals because of our quality and reputation in the community. We are also getting larger projects such as the Emerald Place, a private development of 31 townhomes, and the Davis Landing West Project consisting of 16 single family homes and eight townhomes for the Land Trust of Palm Beach County. We currently have projects from Hallandale Beach to Lake Worth,” said Halberg, whose name is on the Donor wall at the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce as a presenting sponsor. Halberg’s partners Bill Neville and Chuck McGovern make up the executive order at Stuart & Shelby. Between them they have over 90 years experience in the construction industry and over 60 years in the development and contracting industry in South Florida. If reputation is everything then Stuart & Shelby is batting 1000. “Stuart & Shelby is a company that does what it says it’s going to do. I had a home built in Delray Beach and Chuck H & Chuck M gave me exactly what I wanted. They spoke to me in layman’s terms, were good communicators and were beside me throughout the entire process,” said Noel Malave, a retired healthcare executive. Ernie DeSimone, an attorney from Rhode Island, also found his way to Stuart & Shelby. And the results are worth touting. “Stuart & Shelby did fabulous work on a condo I bought in Seagate Towers. Their follow-up is terrific and the workmanship is wonderful. I have owned three homes in different states and this is some of the finest work I’ve seen. They also stand behind their work and Chuck is a wonderful guy.” Our customer was thrilled with this glamourous kitchen. The Chef is sold separately

Kokie Dinnan feels the same way about Halberg. “Chuck is an amazing guy. He’s been the driving force behind many of our fundraisers. Last year we raised $10,000 from the Woodstock party at the Elks Club. Chuck is on our advisory board and helps with ideas and planning. He’s there for us for anything we need. Family Promise of South Palm Beach County is so blessed to have Chuck Halberg as an integral supporter and partner of our program,” said Dinnan, Executive Director of Family Promise of South Palm Beach County. Their upcoming fundraiser to benefit Family Promise will be at Putt’n Around on May 14th. Halberg has also returned to the Arts Garage Board of Directors and is a founding member of The Delray Beach Initiative, devoted to enhancing the lives of local children. Halberg started in the construction industry in 1975 in Michigan and has been building in South Florida since 1980. He was a Construction Management Executive for three top 200 National Builders before starting Stuart & Shelby in 2006. He excels in product development, budget management, quality control and customer satisfaction. Partner’s Bill Neville has managed purchasing departments for five of Florida’s top builders and Chuck McGovern has overseen construction in all forms and shapes (including historical renovation) in New Hampshire, Colorado and Florida. The construction team also includes office administrator Patty Eldredge and field staff - Javier Gonzalez, Steve Weiss, Tom Peyton and Brian Young. Chuck’s wife Pam Halberg (of Re/Max Advantage Plus) handles sales of Stuart & Shelby spec homes and marketing strategies.

Together they make a terrific team. Just ask Bill Schroth. “I just built a home in the historic district of Delray Beach and Chuck was in the center of the GC organization. His team worked out terrific. He was involved in all the details, made everything happen and was extremely helpful.” That is the master plan of this dynamic organization. “This year we very excited to be celebrating out 10th year in business. We have built our reputation with the utmost integrity and pride,” said Halberg. Stuart & Shelby is known for their construction expertise from start to finish. “We work closely with our clients to provide efficient plans throughout each project. That includes value engineering to keep within the clients’ budget, yet maintaining the highest quality possible.” Stuart & Shelby Development 205 George Bush Blvd Delray Beach, Florida 561-637-7902

But when he came to Delray Beach two and a half years ago he knew he had found the perfect home. He also knew that his corporate days were over. “I wanted to be in the salon suite business because I love the concept. It’s a great way to give people a chance to start their own business without the initial capital investment,” said Martell, the owner of My Salon Suite in the heart of Pineapple Grove. Not only is Martell helping his tenants (in the Health and Beauty industry) but he has completely renovated this two-story 8,000-square-foot space once called Paradise Salon and Spa. There is now top notch security, new carpet and tile flooring, colorful artwork, modern luxury bathrooms, leather chairs and updated modern work spaces created for Health and Beauty professionals needs and necessities. All suites come fully furnished with dark wood furniture, granite sink stations and countertops, special shampoo stations for Stylists and custom designed work stations where tools of the trade are artfully and neatly provided for. There’s also a new lobby and second floor lounge with crystal chandelier and colorful artwork from local artists. There’s another thing that tenants value immensely – and it’s a no drama atmosphere. “I like it here much better now than before,” said Maria Oliveira, owner of L’Esthetique. “Al is a great manager, everything is organized and the level of professionalism in the building has greatly improved,” said the skin care and beauty professional that has been at My Salon Suite for 12 years.

Holistic healer Laura Rudish also sees a change in the tide at My Salon Suite. Her second floor balcony location is tastefully painted a serene shade of green and her recycled driftwood table creates the perfect environment for healing. “Al holds a vision for this building in a healthy way. It’s not easy to walk the balance between caring for the space and encouraging us to develop our own successful business.” That’s the beauty of this new owner’s concept. Martell mixes business with heart in an altruistic (yet astute business manner) from start to finish. But it’s exactly what he wanted to do, and what he revels in on a day to day basis. “We let tenants pick out their own wall colors and have a Swiss shower on the second floor. The new chocolate brown carpet looks great as you enter the 2nd Story Spa area, and there are double sided custom suite signs with each tenant’s logo on it.” Al also made sure his new security system is state of the art and monitors everyone who enters the premises. A camera is strategically placed next to a key pad at the entrance so tenants can see their clients and allow access at any time. Tenants also have access cards in case they need to enter the building early or later in the day – giving them 24/7 access. There is also free online reservation system for all tenants in the building. These new changes – combined with the professionalism of this modern space – has allowed My Salon Suite to attract the top Health and Beauty professionals from salons in the surrounding areas. “I am most proud of the community we have built. These are hardworking consummate professionals who are nice people and experienced in their craft. They are all licensed and work really hard – and the best part is that there is no gossip or drama here. Everyone helps and supports one and other.” Martell takes the guesswork out of licensing and permitting (if tenants need help) and he helps them with credit card processing and works with them to market their business on the My Salon Suite web site Directory and Facebook Page. Martell also helps tenants get new clients by way of outreach to local hotels and businesses. And that makes a lot of tenants very happy. “Al has the energy and resources to make My Salon Suite a great place to work. He cares about the parking (there are 30 spots for clients), and responds to our issues and requests,” said Leonardo Antunano, a massage therapist at My Salon Suite. The new incarnation of this beauty empire (made up of single, double and triple suites) also has new washers and dryers for tenants. Professionals in this beauty heaven include – Massage Therapists, Brazilian hair treatments, Skin-care experts, Hair Stylists, Extensions, and Colorists, Estheticians, Body Toning, Waxing, Lashes, Nail Technicians and much more. There’s even a local goldsmith with a big following who finds the location – and convenience of a business suite – perfect for his business. That is exactly what Martell had in mind from the start. “Our vision is to grow our tenant base by welcoming new tenants that complement our existing professionals. We want everyone to look forward to coming here to luxuriate in our new classic upscale space.” MY SALON SUITE 140 NE 2nd Street , Pineapple Grove in Delray 561-325-8395 | May 2016 67

Second Time Around Delray Opens New Flagship Store on George Bush Blvd By Hannah Gail

Delray Native, Veteran Shop Owner Confident of Business Growth Jen Davis grew up only a few miles from downtown Delray Beach and remembers fondly the small town feel and village charm of her family hometown. On a recent stroll with us along Atlantic Avenue, she turned wistful. As change has come and the city reinvents itself, she holds some nostalgia for the past, but embraces the future with passion. A dedicated member of the downtown merchants group, Jen assumed the reins of Second Time Around in 2007. It had already been going strong in the same location for 30 years. Jen sees a bright road ahead. “The strong growth of our business

downtown in the last few years has been exciting and fun”, says Jen. “It’s given us confidence to double down on our new location at George Bush Blvd. We see the city expanding in our direction and expect urban development and business activity will soon surround us. We want to provide a premium shopping experience for our customers. That includes generous parking, local dining and an unhurried atmosphere. We outgrew the small downtown store and now want to serve a broader clientele with high quality items. In our larger, new store we offer a unique consignment opportunity supported by the nearby communities of Highland Beach, Gulfstream and Palm Beach.”

Au Revoir Downtown, Hello North Side “We have loved experiencing the rebirth of downtown. Especially the wellrun shows and festivals that have brought scores of international visitors. But our customers want more. After only a short drive north from Atlantic Avenue along the gorgeous new tree-lined Federal Highway corridor one arrives in a special place. “The George Bush Blvd area near our home in Lake Ida has felt ‘just right’ for a long time. Laid back and un-crowded, it’s become popular with locals and tourists looking for the “sweet spots” and that “hometown” allure of Delray Beach. Jen says, “We’ve joined a variety of long-established hot spots such as Nancy Regan’s Bella Reina Spa, Susie McTighe’s Great Stuff Previously Enjoyed and Marianne’s Gourmet Deli, owned by Sara DeVries. Just around the corner is Loic Autret French Artisan Bakery serving chocolate croissants and espresso. Paris, anyone? The soothing sounds of children’s laughter from St Vincent’s Church and School grounds across the street is a bonus to any shopping excursion to our shady neighborhood. The beautiful North end of Delray Beach is just a short hop over the scenic intra-costal bridge. Not Your Mom’s Consignment Store On a recent visit, we found the store a gem. Sparkling hardwood floors and gleaming chandeliers set off the brightest retail environment we’ve seen lately. Long-time friend and professional retail display con-

sultant Ampi Abdullah has taken great pride in creating just the right atmosphere of color and design. She joined Jen’s team years ago, after a long, successful career owning Renaissance, a clothing and furniture boutique next to the Post Office in Pineapple Grove. Every wall is eye catching and beautifully coordinated. Second Time Around offers carefully chosen items from a broad range of affluent clients. Some have consigned with Jen, and some prefer to sell their merchandise outright. Frequently found there are designer brands such as Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, LV, Anne Fontaine and Pucci. Jen also carries a large selection of Lilly, Planet, J McLaughlin and Barbara Gerwit. Every item

is carefully screened for signs of wear and the results are that everything looks brand new. “This is perfect for you!” says Jen, offering a glossy, cross-body Louis Vuitton handbag to one of her regular customers. “It’s a gut feeling,” she says, when deciding what looks good on each of her customers. The moment she eyes a new accessory or spots a new dress coming in, she knows it’s the right fit for her store. She’s grown to know her customers intimately and knows what works for them. They trust Jen’s choices of only impeccable items of designer clothing, handbags and accessories. Jen and her team have developed a process of selection that ensures each item is flawless. Any stain, marking or other defect immediately eliminates a piece from consideration. Only perfect merchandise makes it to the floor at Second Time Around. And the prices are incredible. We spotted a perfect Fendi on sale for about a third of what we’d have paid for a new one.

Dog Days Stop by soon and check out the new items arriving every day. Grab a bite to eat and enjoy the hospitality. Heading into the warm summer months, Jen will be open from 10 to 4, Monday thru Saturday. Oh, and grab the leash and bring your dog! A large stainless bowl of fresh water is always available just outside.

There are 60 Merchants housed in kiosks and booths that will cater to your every whim. Need a kitchen remodel or a wall unit, then ask Jerry from Florida Furniture & Mattress Liquidators. He’s been in the furniture business for 28 years and sells everything from chairs, sofas, beds, TV stands, custom kitchens and narrow sleeper sofas for condos. The best part is that his prices are 30% to 35% less than the competition and he can custom design and build a wall unit, kitchen, bathroom, storage space or whatever you need. If you want to make a big splash at a party, or night out on the town, head over to Couture XOXO. This boutique has designer and designer-inspired clothing that will drape you in luxury without the high price tag. There are beaded and sequined tops and dresses with

Fifth Avenue flair, tunic tops with lace trim, leggings and pants that will make you look terrific for any occasion – be it lunch or living it up. Owner Lauren has worked at her mother’s store on Worth Avenue (Couture & More) and knows how to perk up your wardrobe and pick out upscale looks (with accessories) to your taste level and style. If you’re looking for children’s clothing (or accessories) with a little bling and lot of style check out Butterfly Dreams. Their Kash Ten collection of knit dresses and jackets are adorable with beaded detail, rhinestones and prints including effervescent tie dyes. Owner Cynthia Lala also just opened an adjoining kiosk called “Personally Yours by Cynthia,” which sells personalized (and monogrammed) items from napkins to stationary, gift items, disposable flower vases, gift baskets and more. Whether you come to The Big Apple to shop or enjoy their casual eateries is your choice. But the big news is that a new Deli recently opened called Big Apple Deli. They have salads, sandwiches, desserts and homemade piping hot knishes that include: potato, potato- spinach, potato-mushroom and kasha in a soft puff pastry. Their tuna salad sandwiches are a favorite for many and the Hebrew National Hotdogs are popular as well. Owner Aaron will gladly cater your next event for business or in-home party with any food style or ethnicity you desire. He can also make meat, fish or salad platters for you. If you want homemade soups and local ice cream come to Gourmet Galaxy. This top notch chef has been touted for her wonderful recipes and catering skills. They have homemade soups that range from wild mushroom to split pea, chicken noodle, carrot-ginger, clam chowder, seafood bisque and others. You can also order caviar, crab cakes, foie gras and other delicacies. For the past 28 years they have catered exclusive parties, yachts and special events. Kathy B’s kiosk in Central Park has a creative selection of items that will make your life easier and more colorful.

She also sells colorful fabric potato bags for microwaving, crochet rugs, body scrubbers, baby bibs, coasters and other personal and gift items. She’s a wiz in creation and a nice lady too.

said Dr. Hao, who has completed an additional 3-year residency at University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital, and graduated at the top of her class. “So many medical conditions and systemic imbalances can negatively impact a person’s look or even make beauty fade away,” Dr. Hao comments, “such as thyroid issues, auto-immune disorders, menopause, andropause, anxiety, depression and insomnia.

It’s rewarding to watch them to be more healthy, look more beautiful and have more confidence in themselves, to know they can contribute to society more.” The services at Holistic MedSpa 101 include but are not limited to the following:

My life has changed for the better,” said Becky R. “Dr. Hao saved my life. I was near death before I found her. I had gone to many doctors and no one knew what was wrong with me. She did tests that other doctors had done and uncovered that I was exposed to mold. I owe my life to her and her staff. I am now doing a Lymphatic drainage series.

JOE ARDAGNA AND WHITNEY SMITH In The Grove And In The Groove By diane feen


photos by melissa korman

There’s a synergy between Whitney Smith and Joe Ardagna that is electric. Both are superstar hair stylists and colorists who are admired for their genius and natural ability to make everyone who crosses their path look beautiful.

Team Joe and Whitney!

They don’t dictate style or color for their clients (who are ardently loyal) but they understand what needs to be done from the top to the lower levels of tresses that float with ease atop each head. Joe and Whitney are Board Certified Hair Colorists and have a loyal following that rivals the royal family. Both are excellent purveyors of style and know exactly how to maximize clients’ hair from bland to beautiful with each delicate strand. Marlee Berliner, who lives in Delray, is a believer. “I’ve been going to Whitney ever since 74 April 2016 |

she did my hair for my sister’s wedding. I fell in love with her personality and talent. I am constantly getting stopped everywhere I go because people love my hair. Not only that, everyone here makes me feel like a princess. Other salons try to get to me go to them, but I would never cheat on Whitney.” Joe’s clients are equally as evangelical about Joe’s natural ability. “Joe is very good at everything – he has a great color sense and cuts (and keeps) my hair looking perfect all the time. People always tell me they love my hair and want to know who does it,” said Risa Sontz.

Joe understands Sontz from her roots to her psyche. “I make sure that each person gets the cut and color that is appropriate for their age, personality and lifestyle. It’s about personalizing their hair style and cut – you have to be an artist,” said Joe, who is not only an artiste at hair, but also teaches Body Pump four times a week in the area. Another reason clients of both Whitney and Joe are so enthralled with this dynamic duo is that they work so well together. “We’re a team, we confer with each other about clients’ color and styling,” said Joe, who said it’s like getting two professionals for the price of one. Joe and Whitney also attend prestigious hair shows to get the latest information on new techniques, hair trends and state-of-theart products. As for current hair color trends, Joe is bullish on organic color that is soft and painted (Sombre). “You need to know how to place the color to compliment skin tone and uplift the face. It is best if you look at Pinterest or bring a picture of what you like and we’ll tell you if it will work for you.” There’s another reason why everyone loves this team – they don’t dictate, they make suggestions on what will enhance a person’s features. Rachel Duvall learned this firsthand. “I’m always afraid to try new salons because I’ve had horrifying experiences. I’ve had my scalp burned, hair chopped unevenly and the side shaved. Joe’s caring manner really struck a chord of hope in me. Joe is a true genius behind the chair. He was kind and patient, and when he finished cutting and coloring my hair it seemed like six years of poor hair color had been healed. I had the most vibrant and complimented color I’ve ever had.”

We do it all!

Duvall also sees the glory in working with Whitney. “Whitney has such a modern fresh approach to hair, and Joe has all the classic style and experience to make them a perfectly balanced team. The most charming yin and yang of a hair salon anyone could hope for.” That seems to be the consensus of all of their clients, who meld into the Joe and Whitney universe harmoniously. New mom Whitney puts it this way: “Working at In the Grove Hair Studio is an energetic environment that is not only fun, but I get to work with an amazing partner. Joe and I are a team - we work together with our clients to make it fun and keep learning from our shared experiences trying out new trends together.” As far as color trends go Whitney loves the new concept of “Babylights.” Babylights add brightness to the hair while creating natural

child-like highlights that keep the hair looking subtle and soft. “It’s great for clients who don’t want to make a full-time color commitment. It also allows us - as artists - to create a look for each client that is more personal.” While it is wonderful to have a lush beautiful head of hair some of us aren’t blessed with that feature. That’s why Joe and Whitney fully endorse using Great Length Extensions. The human hair extensions come in tape-in style or strand by strand. They add fullness or length and the outcome is often a self esteem enhancer. “I am a NPC bikini model and Whitney’s been adding Great Length Extensions to my hair. She’s amazing and my hair has never looked better,” said Jessica. Christine also loves her Great Length Extensions. “I have been getting hair extensions put in by Joe and my hair looks amazing. People

I’m truly passionate at my career

who know me well can’t even tell I am wearing hair extensions.” Joe and Whitney strive to achieve greatness in their field – and it seems to be working perfectly. They make everyone in their chairs feel welcome and adored, and they understand hair styles for all age groups – from modern to traditional and classical (with vivid colors in between). “We are not stuffy or intimidating – but we make sure we know what’s going on in Beverly Hills and Dubai. Come in and we’ll make you look beautiful.”

Me Time:

By Stephanie Constantino



Supermom Needs a Break

Many stay-at-home moms experience severe depression, increased levels of anxiety, mood swings, and other mental health problems. Why?

Raising a child can be one of the most challenging things anyone will ever do. Babies demand constant attention, young children ask questions incessantly, and teenagers have the power to make even the sanest person believe they’re going crazy. But, just because someone is a parent, that 76 May 2016 |

doesn’t mean they’re not a person. It’s important to take time each day to refresh the mind and body.

Do I Really Need “Me” Time? Burnout happens when a person continually does the same task for extended

periods of time. A parent might think that they do different activities with their child throughout a given day (eating, playing, bathing, etc.), but caring for a child is one continuous activity. And it’s a job that requires constant attention. People aren’t meant to function that way; parents need to give their brain a few breaks to relax and refresh itself. Some of the other benefits of taking time to relax include: • Greater ability to focus • Lowered stress levels • Increased levels of patience • The ability to sleep better

• Improved mood • More satisfaction with circumstances • Lower levels of depression • Improved relationships with friends, family, and spouse “Me” time is also a great opportunity for partners to bond more with the child. It can help them understand what it’s like to be a caregiver, and they will be more likely to show compassion to the mothers of their children. But ... I Feel Guilty. Guilt is common among mothers. They always seem to ask themselves, “What kind of mother wants to be away from their child?” But it’s not that moms want to be away from them; they just need time to be on their own. They need that space to remember who they are and what they do. A child dictates so much of a person’s daily life: when it’s time to wake up, when meals need to be prepared, whether or not a family can go to a movie theater, what kind of recreational activities are allowed. Remember, you’re not just a mother. You are a whole person with feelings, beliefs, likes, dislikes, opinions, and ideas. The need to express yourself or to do activities that make you happy should not make you feel guilty. You will be a more patient, attentive parent when you take time to love yourself.

What Are Some Ways to Relax? The main idea is to find a diversion to get your mind off of your daily responsibilities. Your options depend on your personal preferences. It’s important to do the activity on your own or with a friend; having the child in the room with you will defeat its purpose. It sounds selfish, but it will help you be a better parent. Here are a few ideas to get you started: • Read a book or magazine (e.g. Atlantic Ave Magazine) • Take a bath or a nap • Do yoga, meditate, or burn candles/incense • Go for a run or a swim • Give yourself a manicure • Drink a cup of coffee/tea, have a snack, or eat a meal • Sit outside or work in the garden • Go for a drive, to the store, or to a restaurant • Play a game on your phone/computer / do a crossword • Watch a TV show or listen to music • Clean something or get rid of clutter

• Bake or cook • Look through old photo albums • Knit or crochet • Take a class at the local community college • Write a blog, letter, or bucket list The list can go on. As long as you are giving your brain a break from your normal tasks, you are on the right track.

Your Kids Will Thank You You need mental breaks just as much as you need food and sleep. Look at it like the oxygen masks in an airplane. It may

seem selfish to put yours on first before helping your child, but if you pass out trying to help them first, you are hurting the both of you. Help yourself to help your children. Not only are you giving yourself some relief from stress, but you are also setting a good example for your children. Let them know it’s OK to be a little selfish sometimes, and make sure they know that, by improving their mental health in this way, they can live a much happier life. A dose of “me” time may be just what the doctor ordered! | May 2016 77

“Don’t Just Give Up, Do Something!” And it’s easier than you think…

Dear Friend, I could tell you story after story. In my office, I see people who’ve refused to give up. They didn’t accept the answers they’ve gotten before. They didn’t accept “there’s nothing we can do,” or “there’s actually nothing wrong with you.” Many of the people who come to see me complain they’ve been “everywhere” else, taken “every” test, and wound up with huge medical bills, and are still no better off. Often, they’ve been subjected to medications which only served to temporarily mask symptoms. Health, or the lack of it, very often has simple causes, and very reasonable corrections. That’s what I’m going to tell you about. But, before I tell you more, let me tell you something about me… I’ve been a doctor in Delray for four years. And, to this day, I’ve never cured anyone. You may think the word would get around and no one would come to me anymore. The opposite is true. The more people who understand, the more people come to see me.

Here’s my story… I used to have debilitating migraines when I was younger. A family friend convinces my family and me to give his doctor a try. This new doctor does an exam, takes some films, and then ‘corrects’ my spine. The

correction doesn’t hurt, it actually feels good. I get relief, and shortly afterwards, my migraines disappear. Oh, did I mention this doctor is a chiropractor? Chiropractic works so well for me, and I’m so impressed with the other ‘miracles’ I see in his office, I eventually go to chiropractic school myself. And that’s how it happened!” Here’s some of your neighbors success stories: “Never would I have thought a chiropractor could cure carpal tunnel syndrome, and migraines. I had tried everything from over the counter medications, prescriptions and different types of therapies. After treatment at Schrier Family Chiropractic I no longer experience any symptoms. (Cynthia M., Delray Beach FL) “This is the best thing I have ever done for my body!” (Rosanne P., Delray , FL) For the last four years, people from Delray Beach to the far surrounding areas have come to see me for: • Headaches / Migraines • Vertigo / Dizziness • Chronic Pain • Neck Pain • Fibromyalgia • Sciatica • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome • Increased Athletic performance to name just a few… Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems. But I can’t really take the credit. Your body is made to heal itself, and it does best when it’s free of nerve interference. So, as much as I’d like to take the credit, I can’t. I’ve never healed anyone of anything. I analyze the nervous system and the spine and perform specific, gentle spinal adjustments to remove nerve pressure. The body responds, and often it heals itself once the nerve interference is removed. Exciting Offer-Look, I know you’re smart

and you want to get to the cause of your problems and not just cover them up with drugs. When you are one of the first 10 people to call and schedule a new patient exam before May 27th, 2016, you’ll receive the entire exam for $37. This includes a consultation, X-rays, paraspinal thermal nerve scan, postural analysis, and leg balance check. Don’t wait. Call right away because we expect to be flooded with calls, as this office visit usually costs $150. Again, there are only 10 appointments available, so don’t miss out. Great care at a great fee. Please… I hope there’s no misunderstanding about quality of care because I have a lower exam fee. You’ll get great care for a great fee. My qualifications…I’m the only NUCCA chiropractor in Delray, and a graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. I’ve been entrusted to take care of tiny babies to pro athletes who you may know. I’ve been helping the people of South Florida for four years. I have a low exam fee so more people can get the care they need. Our office is both friendly and warm and we try our best to make you feel at home. Our office is called Schrier Family Chiropractic and it is at 315 N.E 2nd Ave., Delray Beach (located in Pineapple Grove.) Call today for an appointment 561-4452648. We can help you. Thank you. - Elan Schrier, D.C. P.S. We see great results with difficult and non-traditional cases. P.P.S Your time is as valuable as mine. We have a no-wait policy. You will be seen within minutes of your appointment.

special feature ║ Extreme Environments on Earth

5 of the Most Extreme Environments on Earth By Charles Jackson

{ 1

We don’t always have to look to space and worlds beyond Earth to find some truly bizarre and extreme environments. Not many people visit most of the following places, for some of them are particularly remote and difficult to get to. However, if you are a particularly adventurous traveller who truly wants to push the boundaries, how about considering some of the following extreme environments on Planet Earth.

Verkhoyansk, Russia

The Coldest Inhabited Place on Earth

Most people like to spend their holidays lying on a beach and getting a tan. However, if sun, sea and sand are not your thing, then how about doing a trip to the Siberian town of Verkhoyansk, Russia in the midst of winter. About 420 miles away from the city of Yakutsk, Verkhoyansk lies close to the Arctic Circle. Verkhoyansk and its neighbour, Oymyakon, are the two coldest 82 May 2016 |

inhabited places on Earth, yet they are not cold throughout the year. Verkhoyansk and Oymyakon also experience the greatest yearly temperature fluctuations of anywhere in the world. During the peak of the summer, daytime temperatures can reach well above eighty-six degrees. The winter is truly formidable, however. Not only is the place almost entirely dark throughout the day; temperatures hover around -49°F. This is so cold that exposed skin will be subjected to frostbite within minutes and a hot cup of coffee thrown into the air will turn to snow

before it hits the ground. As if that’s not chilly enough, the lowest temperature ever recorded in Verkhoyansk is -93°F.


Dallol, Ethiopia

The Hottest Place on Earth If you prefer something a little warmer on your next trip abroad, how about the remote ghost town of Dallol, Ethiopia? While the highest temperature record on Earth

belongs to Death Valley in California, Dallol holds the record for the highest average temperature throughout the year. This is 95°F with highs of up to 113°F. Dallol was once a potash mining town, although it is now abandoned. The remaining buildings are mostly built from salt bricks and the town is scattered by rusting heaps of metal. The only visitors today are the occasional camel caravans coming to collect salt. Dallol is very near the world’s most bizarre volcano, a place where the landscape is truly otherworldly. Highly acidic geysers, sulphur deposits, salt pillars and acid pools cover the area. The unusual chemical makeup and geology of the place leads to an incredibly strange rugged landscape coloured many shades of red, yellow and orange. Unfortunately, only the truly adventurous will ever make it to Dallol due to its remoteness and the political instability of the region.


The Dead Sea, Jordan

One of the Saltiest Lake on Earth

The Dead Sea is the fourth saltiest body of water and the deepest salt lake in the world. About nine times saltier than the ocean, the Dead Sea gets its name because the extreme salinity makes it inhospitable to almost all marine life. The only life in the lake comprises a few forms of algae and possibly some extremophile bacterium. The Dead Sea is actually quite a popular holiday destination and one of the most visited regions in Jordan. It is well known for its health benefits thanks to the rich cocktail of minerals of the water. The region also boasts some beautiful landscape. Be aware, however, that the place is very

hot, with average spring temperatures hovering around 86°F and summer temperatures above 104°F. Another thing that the Dead Sea is well known for is the fact that it is almost impossible to sink, at least if you lie on your back. People can float effortlessly on the surface due to the extreme salinity. The area is home to many resorts and spa towns offering a wide variety of things to do. The most popular beach is the Amman Beach.


The Atacama Desert

The Driest Place on Earth

ited, although there are a number of nitrate mining towns which have now been abandoned. With many deposits of various valuable materials, the region was once an important economic area. There are around 170 settlements, most only consisting of no more than half a dozen buildings. All of these towns are now abandoned. Due to the lack of cloud cover, light pollution and the altitude of the Atacama Desert, the place is ideal for astronomical observatories. The two major ones are La Silla and the famous Paranal observatory, home of the Very Large Telescope.


Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

The Largest Salt Flat on Earth

The Atacama Desert is a six-hundred mile long stretch of land near the Pacific coast of Chile and Peru. The region is often compared to the surface Mars, since it is completely barren, dry and almost devoid of life. Some of the weather monitoring stations in the desert have never reported a single drop of rain during their existence and it is even speculated that the region has not had any significant rain shower for around 450 years. The Atacama Desert is largely uninhab-

Salar de Uyuni is an enormous salt flat formed from a prehistoric lake. It is the largest salt flat in the world, occupying an area of more than four-thousand square miles in Bolivia. It is also the flattest area in the world. Beneath several metres of the salty crust of the surface is a lake comprised of brine. In this otherworldly lake is an enormous amount of lithium, accounting for up to seventy percent of all of the lithium reserves on Earth. There are some islands in the salt flat, including Isla Incahuasi, where various cacti and other plant life grow. The region is quite popular with tourists and fairly easily accessible on a three or four day tour. Tours will typically take people around the whole region and include accommodation and food. There are even hotels in the area made entirely made from salt! | May 2016 83

Protecting The City



Photo by melissa korman

Listening to Steve Hynes speak about his new position as Director of Emergency Management in Delray Beach is quite an enlightening experience.

There’s no talk about Delray Beach gentrification or small talk about the pros and cons of adding theaters or restaurants. The reason is because of the magnitude of Hynes’s job and the ramifications of its implementation. “You don’t just prepare for a hurricane, you prepare for any emergency – but you have to plan,” said the 20-year veteran of law enforcement. Unlike planning for a birthday party or vacation, Hynes’ goal is to get citizens (and business owners) to make a plan for something more life-threatening like a hurricane, tornado, cybercrime, terrorist attack or nuclear explosion. Though it sounds rather morbid Hynes just wants to make sure we’re all taken care of if (or when) disaster strikes. His new position (the first of its kind in the city) has made him adamant about reaching people before disaster strikes. “My job is to implement citywide strategies in Preparedness, Planning, Mitigation, Response and Recovery. We need these planning strategies to get things back to normal after any catastrophe. Our concern is about life safety, incident stabilization, property conservation and evidence preservation.” There are times when conversing with this dedicated law enforcement officer (who was born on Memorial Day) that you begin to think you’re in a planning meeting for a doomsday movie at Paramount. But then he snaps you back into clear headedness by his sincere devotion to his career. “I always wanted to serve my country. I was born Irish Catholic in Queens, New York. I have a strong work ethic.” He sure does. He’s been a Patrol Officer, Detective, Training Sergeant, Patrol Sergeant, Police Diver and Terrorist Response Expert. Hynes’ expertise is so finely honed that he’s been on state and regional emergency management teams deployed to disaster areas in other communities. When it comes to his home turf (Delray) Hynes has reached out to the Chamber of Commerce, businesses, churches and schools. But it’s not something he can do

himself. “We always have potential for some form of incident to go on in our city. I’m trying to get the community aware that they need to start planning for all hazards. Since September 15th we’ve had a hurricane warning (Erika), King Tide Floods on Marine Way, and a Tornado on Homewood Blvd and Lake Ida.” It’s not that Hynes is a buzz kill or doomsday prophet. “I’m trying to take care of the city and plan for things like a plane crash, civil unrest or a flood. The last time we had a storm surge flood was 1912, what would business owners do today if there was suddenly three feet of water on Atlantic Avenue?” Good question; and one that rattles around in Hynes’ brain quite often (we assume). That’s why he’s asking everyone to go to to create a plan for their families, businesses and special needs relatives. “You can create a free CodeRed account at so the city can communicate with you during a disaster.” Hynes also wants everyone to have extra food and water, be able to board up windows (or put up hurricane shutters), have an exit strategy and plan family communications. He also talks about the need to have a will, auto insurance, homeowners insurance and flood coverage. “FEMA will no longer cover homes that should have had flood insurance if you live in a flood zone.” To know Hynes is to know that he takes his job seriously and is accomplished in almost everything he does. As proof of his leadership skills and accomplishments there’s a heavy binder that sits on his desk with his awards and certificates of achievement. But if you ask him about them he gets quiet preferring to talk about the fact that he enjoys the challenge of his new job and that he is very close to his 14-yearold daughter. Hynes back story (and enthusiasm for law enforcement) makes you feel like you’re in the company of a character out of a Tom Cruise movie. But when asked what action figure he might resemble there is silence

on the other end of the phone. But make no mistake Hynes is as capable as any Agents of S.H.E.I.L.D when it comes to creating calm after an unplanned storm. That’s why he teaches FEMA and Department of Homeland Security courses in Emergency Management, Terrorism, Chemical, Biological, Nuclear and Explosives Incidents as well as active shooter response. Hyne’s was in the Marine Corps and graduated from American Military University in West Virginia. He went to the Police Academy in Colorado and become a Patrol Deputy. In

2000 Hynes came to Delray Beach to become a Patrol Officer, but his path instead led him to become the quintessential disaster dude. “Do the HOA’s have a Community Emergency Response Team and know how to help themselves before, during and after a disaster? Do our businesses and places of worship have proper insurance and an emergency plan? The more prepared you are, the more likely you will be able to quickly recover from a disaster. I’m trying to lead everyone in right direction, but I can’t do it alone.” After talking to Hynes you get the impres-

sion he is all business. But if you pry gently he will spill some personal details. He works out every day, is an avid surfer and paddle board enthusiast, and enjoys free diving where he experiences serenity and Mother Nature’s divinity 60 to 80 feet below the surface. Hynes also enjoys cooking, playing guitar, singing, riding his bike and going to the beach. He is also an early to bed early to rise kind of guy. But make no mistake he probably always has one eye open. Because superheroes are always ready to defend their territory. And Hynes is no different. | May 2016

Paglia e Fieno, Spinach and Egg Fettuccini with Sautéed Imported Prosciutto di Parma with Sweet Peas & a touch of Cream

Delray Beach

By Diane Feen photos by melissa korman

{ 98

If you want authentic homemade Italian food on the Avenue make sure you have a meal at Luigi’s. The dishes and pizzas are served piping hot with the vibrant flavors and ingredients of Luigi’s hometown of Naples, Italy.

May 2016 |

Luigi’s Homemade All Beef Meatballs

This oversized cavernous space has colorful charm, an authentic polished woodwork bar and outdoor seating. Luigi came to the United States nine years ago with family recipes, culinary experience and bravado. His parents owned a restaurant in Naples and when he was 16 he enrolled in a Culinary School in Italy. When he came to the United States he worked his way up to head chef of Tuscan Grille in Ft. Lauderdale and then opened his first Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza on Las Olas Blvd. Though Luigi’s started on Las Olas Blvd. the Delray Beach location is larger and the menu is larger. There is one thing that is static – and it’s that Luigi continues the Napoli legacy of authenticity when it comes to pizza, especially the Margherita Napoletana Pizza. That means he uses Caputo “OO” flour, mozzarella cheese and tomatoes from Naples and

the San Marzano region of Italy. He also follows many of the rules of the Verace Pizza Napoletana, an internationally recognized group of authentic Neopolitan-style pizza makers. Their Margherita Napoletana Pizza is made with Tomato Sauce, Fresh Organic Basil, Fresh Homemade Mozzarella and Extra Virgin Olive Oil. “Did you know this pizza is from the 4th century in Naples. The King of England was on vacation in Italy and he was hungry so they made him the Margherita Napoletana Pizza the recipe has never been changed,” said Luigi, who still adheres to this recipe. There are other wonderful pizzas on the menu and all are made in one of their special Coal Ovens. Favorites are the Vegetariana (with Mozzarella Cheese, Tomato, Olives, Artichokes, Sweet Peppers, Peperoncini and Fresh Sautéed Mushrooms) and the Truffle Pizza with mozzarella, Romano, French Goat cheese, spinach, sautéed mushrooms and drizzled with White Truffle Oil. Their Margherita Napoletana Pizza is a favorite of many people, especially Delray Police Sergeant Steve Hynes. “Luigi’s Margherita pizza is the only Gold Medal Pizza around and the eggplant Parmigiana is phenomenal. I also love the sautéed Calamari and Caesar Salad,” said the new Director of Emergency Management for Delray Beach. Other customers agree. “We sat outside and our waitress was a doll. We ordered a margherita pizza and it was the best pizza

Luigi’s House Salad with Romaine Lettuce, Cucumber, Tomato, Garbanzo Beans, Red Onions, Olives, Peperoncini, and Boiled Egg. Option to add Gorgonzola, Goat Cheese, or Homemade Mozzarella

Cold Antipasto, Imported Meats and Cheeses with Tomato, Olive, Peperoncini

Margherita Pizza, a traditional pizza of Naples

we’ve ever had in the U.S. It reminded us of the wonderful pizza we had in Rome – thin crisp crust with a flavorful sauce and fresh mozzarella cheese.” Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza Delray also has Wonderful Homemade pastas. Specialties include Rigatoni Bolognese, homemade Cheese (or meat) Tortellini and Meat Lasagna. The Lasagna is made with Ground Beef, Celery, Carrots, Onions, San Marzano Tomatoes, Fresh Ricotta and Mozzarella Cheese. Other excellent pasta dishes are Rigatoni Carbonara (with Sautéed Onions with Imported Italian Pancetta Apple Wood Smoked Bacon with a Touch of Cream and Egg with Pecorino Romano), Paglia e Fieno, made with Spinach and Egg Fettuccini and then Sautéed with Imported Prosciutto di Parma, Sweet Peas and a Touch of Cream, and their Four Cheese Ravioli with Luigi’s Homemade Marinara Sauce and fresh Basil. Luigi also serves Fresh Fish of the Day, Homemade Meatballs and Spaghetti (the recipe was his grandmother Anastasia’s), Eggplant or Chicken made either Parmigiana, Francese, Saltimboca, Piccata or Marsala. Luigi’s Delray also has a great Happy Hour menu. You get a plate of Fresh Homemade Pasta – such as Four Cheese Ravioli with Luigi’s Marinara Sauce, Baked Ziti with Ricotta and Mozzarella, Meatball sliders, Cheesesteak Napoletana Sliders, Italian Sausage with Sweet Peppers and Onions and other dishes for under $9. There are also Happy Hour Salads such as a House Salad, Caesar or Homemade Mozzarella Salad.

They also specialize in chicken wings made with a special savory recipe. The Organic Chicken is marinated with Italian herbs, roasted in the oven and served with Caramelized Onions and Focaccia Bread. They also serve Panini’s with homemade bread and a variety of meats and cheeses. There are other surprises at this local Italian restaurant - Luigi Fries that are thinly sliced homemade potato chips and Luigi Truffle Fries with Romano Cheese and Truffle Oil. Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza Delray also has a full bar menu and an authentic cherry wood platform to indulge in your libation pleasure. They have a large selection of white and red wine with over 50 wines sold by the glass. Also check out the dessert cocktails such as Liquid Cannoli (Faretti Biscotti Liqueur and Milk a la Martini style), a Mint Chocolate Martini and an Espresso Martini. The desserts are also terrific. Try the homemade Chocolate Chip Tiramisu, Nutella Pizza, Cannoli or Italian Ricotta Cheesecake. Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza is a fun friendly place to eat authentic Italian fare. The food is homemade, the servers aim to please and the atmosphere is festive. You can also dine outdoors and watch the fanfare of folks walk by while you eat. “Every time we go to Luigi’s it’s been wonderful. The pizzas are thin crust and delicious and the pasta dishes are just mouthwatering!” Luigi’s Coal Oven Pizza of Delray Beach 307 E Atlantic Ave, Delray Beach, FL 561- 274 -1969 | May 2016

MISC ║ ask the petxpert

ask the




am feeding my pets the highest quality species appropriate fresh foods daily and yet they still get sick. I know it can’t be the food, so why are they vomiting and having diarrhea? How can I prevent this from reoccurring? All disease has only two causes, deficiency and toxicity. Feeding the highest quality species appropriate fresh food rotational diet will minimize the deficiency aspect that leads us down the toxicity path, however it is important to know where ALL the poisons are coming from. Let’s look at the pet’s environment. Homes are filled with all kinds of toxins. Furniture, flooring and building materials all contain harmful chemicals such as glue, dyes, synthetic fiber, flame retardant, stain repellants and stabilizers, just to name a few. Studies have shown that the average home has 500 different toxins with many as a result of combining the aforementioned chemicals creating new, untested compounds. Our pets are breathing these fumes daily. Their bodies also absorb these compounds as they lay on the floor and furniture. While the amounts may seem miniscule, they accumulate over the course of our pet’s life and are stored in fat cells throughout the body. Now let’s look outside the home. Yards are

treated with all kinds of harmful lawn products that are labeled with warnings. Spraying for mosquitoes, chemtrails and pollution from all kinds of sources also add to the toxic load. We don’t see or realize this constant exposure as most is invisible. Our water is also treated with unnatural additives. Chlorine, fluorides, lead, mercury and hundreds of others along with all the chemicals mentioned above are seeping into our ground water and reservoirs then ingested by our pets. How about those treats that you give them? Read the ingredient label and ask questions. How many chemicals are in “natural” flavors? What about the actual ingredients? Is the corn and wheat genetically modified or chemically treated? What are these treats preserved with? Another group of toxins that pets are exposed to is in the form of drugs and treatments. From flea, tick, heartworm and parasite control medications to various grooming products and vaccines. These products all contain health and adverse event warnings. You can now see why your pet can exhibit signs of illness such as vomiting and diarrhea when they may simply be trying to eliminate those toxins. The greater the expo-

sure to toxins, the more damage that is done to their immune system. The filters of the body, the liver, kidney and lymphatic system work hard to clear the poison. When their system is overwhelmed, the result is failure and more disease. So how do we prevent toxic overload? Control the use of toxins that we have pointed out to you here. Read the labels, specifically the warning section on ALL products. If it has a warning, find an alternative natural product that is safe. There are many holistic minded health practitioners and pet owners that have found herbal and botanical solutions for both detoxifying and meeting one’s health challenges. Be sure you are feeding a proper diet including their treats and water as well. Remember, a strong sound immune system starts with the species appropriate proper foods including herbs and botanicals. For a good source of information on the uses of herbs and botanicals we recommend visiting, Bill Piechocki, nutritionist and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM are partners in Fiesta Pet Deli in Pompano Beach, FL, and are co-hosts of the radio show.

ARTS ║ Beyond the Business Card

Throughout the nation local chambers of commerce strive to strengthen the business interests of their communities, but The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce has reached beyond conventional methods and fostered a number of creative avenues that could very well change what it means to be a Chamber, and drive business to the next generation. This series will not only take a look inside what this innovative chamber is doing but into the interesting people who are doing it. We are going beyond the business card.

By Stephen Chrisanthus

There is nothing small about small business month in Delray Beach as May offers up a big lineup of fun and informative events. 93% of Delray businesses have fewer than 30 employees making small businesses a vital part of our community. All month long we will show our appreciation with events throughout the city, a large number of them taking place at The Chamber of Commerce and Old School Square. There will even be a freeSmall Biz Minicon on May 4th with a panel discussion and a chance for local business owners to get face time with the Delray Beach economic development team. Meet Tiffany Mazer and Kristyn Cox-Goodwin two partners from last year’s We Heart Small Biz Month. For more information and event schedule go to www.

He Said/She Said:

The First Date By Robert V and Marie T

He Said

So, faithful readers; as promised, we completed our first date. Along the way, I violated every bit of advice I have dispensed over the past year. Here is my account (Think “Summer Lovin’” from Grease). I picked her up in my rented Yugo and we went to a beach resort. The Valet did not want anything to do with the car and 114 May 2016 |

it stayed there, dejected for the longest time. We sat by the pool and drank from buckets, no less. She looks amazing in a bikini (good call, He). We talked, laughed and had a good time. We even played ping pong and neither of us had game. I felt bad, so I let her return a few softball serves. It was a great time and I think I was as clever and witty as I am humble. I dropped her off and we made plans for

happy hour and dinner later. I took a shower and combed my hair and attained my version of presentable. I picked her up and we went to an upscale restaurant bar in Boca. We walked in and the mean age dropped ten years. I was buoyed by the fact that I was the only man there with all his own hair and teeth and did not have a sweater tied around his neck. She was stunning in a dress and

every man gawked. We talked and chatted as if we were meeting for the first time (our version of role playing) and decided to leave before the conga line started. We moved to a nicer, quiet restaurant in Boca where she happened to know EVERYONE there. Did I get thrown off my game? Hell yes, I did. I stammered my way through dinner and endured the stares of her friends. I’m pretty sure an old world Italian gypsy curse was cast on me. I took her home and the Yugo was still at 7/8 of a tank. Yes! I thought it went great. She is pretty, eloquent and engaging and I did my best to maintain eye contact, despite the obvious distractions. I tried to be a good listener and genuinely cared about the things that mattered to her. We did not discuss politics or religion and kept it light. There was a nice, proper kiss at the door. It will be interesting (or not) to read her take.

She Said

Soooo...I broke my dating rules. ALL. OF. THEM. But I have (fairly) good reasons why... Let me explain. He asks me to a beach resort and offers to pick me up. (Not our original plan) After doing a good amount of recon and from what he writes, I figured he’s got a nice physique and admittedly, I was curious. All I can say is...WOW. Fit is an understatement. He totally downplayed his level of fitness. From the moment he took off his shirt, I couldn’t stop grinning (or staring). Now my guard is slipping, fast. We found lounges and ordered refreshments. Ok, drinks, that came in buckets. We chatted, we laughed a lot, and had a nice time. There was a very quick dip in the pool, and a pathetic game of ping pong. When we decided it was time to go, he asked me to Happy Hour and dinner, later that day. At this point I had broken almost every First Date rule I have, so I agreed! He picks me up and off we go to an upscale lively mature restaurant bar. It was Happy Hour and Ladies Night. The perfect storm. The woman to man ratio was 3:1. Women were literally whipping around in their stools and staring at him. Once again, all I could do was grin. He obviously could have engaged ANY woman there in conversation, but in true gentleman form, his gaze never strayed from my eyes. Then the music started and it became impossible to hear each other, so we decided to change venues for dinner. This time I got to pick the restaurant, a quiet popular upscale place where I know some of the staff and get treated like a VIP. We had a lovely dinner, good wine, and even better conversation. Despite the occasional “check ins” from my friends, the rest of the night flowed with ease...(I’m sure the wine helped). It was a very nice day into night date. He is very charming, polite, and handsome. So, why is he single??? Hmmm...I may have to dig a little deeper *wink* He walked me to my door, and I did the classic key fumble to see if he would go in for the kiss... He did! Phew! A proper, closed lipped kiss. I waited 15 minutes, sent him a text thanking him for a nice evening, and told him I had a lovely time. That’s all She wrote.
