Spring has sprung and I couldn’t be more happy! They may say we don’t have four seasons in Florida, I say we definitely do. And while the changing landscape may not be so obvious, shedding of winter is a right of passage for me. A little blonder, a lot less clothing, a few bottles of French Rose in the wine chiller, and a little skip in my step, go hand in hand with our blossoming Bougainvillea. I find my new found energy is similar to a bear coming out of hibernation, ravenous and ready to embrace every day, filled with hopes and promises and even the most consumed narcissist can’t take it away from me, lol. My absolute favorite time of the year! On the home front I always look forward to spring cleaning, a form of meditation for me, and even more meditative is the spring planting of my pots. All around me the palms are shedding their brown, dried winter coat and the grass is green again. The comfortable temperatures and new found life all around me inspires me to awake feeling grateful. On a professional note, our town springs into action again with some of the world’s most famous events and a renewed sense of community fills my heart. I look at every day as a challenge filled with promises and inspiration. There are so many exciting things to do in April, from grand-openings to classes to new exhibits and bountiful farmer’s markets. Whether it’s Margarita’s and Mint Juleps or Earth Day and Festivals that inspire you to

enjoy life, you will not be disappointed with this month’s issue of BackStage Pass Magazine. Our cover is graced once again by the amazing three day music and motorcycle festival, Leesburg Bikefest, that follows up Daytona Bike Week. It never fails to be one of the best events of the year. A short drive (I suggest avoid highways) from our area, it makes for a wonderful day trip whether you love music, motorcycles or just getting out among the masses. Also inside our pages Jeep Beach has been making strides toward becoming a top event in our market, and you don’t have to own a Jeep to embrace the lifestyle. Be sure to look at our list of events that spans throughout the issue for inspiration and gigs you don’t want to miss. Don’t forget to peruse our Farmer’s Markets and take man’s best friend to one of our Area Dog Parks, he’s been couped up all winter. And if you are a radio fan, tune into WROD, 104.9, I will be letting you know throughout the month great events you don’t want to miss each week. And since I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, give a toast to me when you hold up that Mint Julep on Derby Day!

t’s Spring time and I don’t know about you, but I am busy! I want something fast and light, but also something that will impress anyone I invite over for dinner. These recipes are some of my favorites and I am sure they will be staples at your house as well. All it takes is an appreciation for amazing fare and an open mind. Bon Appetit!


1 1/2 pounds celery stalks with leafy tops 1 1/2 pounds sea scallops 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 1/8 teaspoon kosher salt 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon sugar 1/2 cup golden raisins 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


Remove celery leaves from stalks; reserve leaves. Thinly slice stalks using a mandoline. Pat scallops dry with paper towels. Sprinkle scallops with pepper and salt. Heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add 1 tablespoon oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add half of the scallops, and cook to desired degree of doneness, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove from skillet; repeat procedure with 1 tablespoon oil and remaining scallops. Whisk together lemon juice, mustard, sugar, and remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large bowl until well combined. Add celery stalks, leaves, raisins, and almonds; toss to combine. Divide salad evenly among 4 plates. Top with scallops



1 cup frozen chopped spinach, thawed 1 pound 93% lean ground turkey ½ cup crumbled feta cheese ½ teaspoon garlic powder ½ teaspoon dried oregano ¼ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon ground pepper 4 small hamburger buns, preferably whole-wheat, split 4 tablespoons tzatziki 12 slices cucumber 8 thick rings red onion (about ¼-inch)

Preheat grill to medium-high. Squeeze excess moisture from spinach. Combine the spinach with turkey, feta, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper in a medium bowl; mix well. Form into four 4-inch patties. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the patties until cooked through and no longer pink in the center, 4 to 6 minutes per side. (An instant-read thermometer inserted in the center should register 165°F.) Assemble the burgers on the buns, topping each with 1 tablespoon tzatziki, 3 cucumber slices and 2 onion rings. To make ahead: Prepare patties, wrap individually and refrigerate for up to 8 hours. Tip: To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

A BEER A DAY KEEPS THE DOCTOR AWAY If you drink it in moderation, beer (just like wine, spirits, or other alcohol) can have health benefits according to WebMd. Stop thinking about that beer belly and visualize stronger bones, healthier hair and reducing the risk of heart disease. Brewed from cereal grains, beer contains multiple nutrition values, minerals and antioxidants. But choose wisely because depending on how light or dark the beer is and it’s alcohol content, beer can end up having quite a few calories. Below are some of the multiple health benefits from beer if drank in moderation. Beer protects the heart! Beer lowers the inflammation in the body. It also thins the blood and prevents blood clots from forming. Dark beer and stouts are especially beneficial because they reduce the risk of heart disease. Beer is also known to have anticancer properties and aids the digestive system. People who drink beer have 4.5% better bone density than people who don’t drink beer, because beers contain dietary silicon which is important for development and growth of bone and connective tissue. Drinking beer can even help fight osteoporosis.

by Geoffrey Nauffts directed by Jonnette DeMarsico

Geoffrey Nauffts' NEXT FALL takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to "believe" and what it might cost us not to.

Beer prevents gallstones and reduces the risk of kidney stones by affecting cholesterol levels and decreasing bile concentration. It also has potassium and magnesium which results in a reduced risk of kidney stones. Beer improves digestion because it’s a source of soluble fibers that promote general health, especially dark beer. It also acts as a diuretic and helps get rid of toxins and waste materials from the body. Since it contains alcohol it will help you sleep better, reduce stress and prevent anxiety. It will also lower blood pressure. Another thing to have in mind is that you can cook with beer and by doing that some of the alcohol content will dissipate. Some ways to use beer in cooking is by adding dark beer to stews and chili, add a hint of beer in macaroni and cheese (Fletcher’s in Ormond has the best), also add it to sautéed vegetables such as green beans or onions and add it in marinades for beef, pork and chicken. Beer is an alcoholic drink, so its consumption needs to be in moderation – one drink for women and two drinks for men per day according to the 2015-2020 U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans. One drink is 12 oz of regular beer. Have in mind that these Guidelines do not recommend that individuals who do not drink alcohol start drinking for any reason. Excessive beer drinking is dangerous to the health and negates all the previously mentioned health benefits. Drink responsibly. Sources: 1. 2.

For April 2018

ARIES (MAR. 21-APR. 20): There’s no contest: this will be your month and you will feel inspired and creative. It will be during the first days of the month that your proposals are heard and received. If you have steps to take to acquire property or ask for a rise, get on with it. Jupiter will also be favorable to you. This great benefactor will look on you with kindness. As good things often come in twos, love or your family will be at the height of your concerns and you will have faith in the future, without any doubts troubling or disrupting your plans. Your friends already know that they can count on you unconditionally. On the 18th, you will be innovative in your love-life which will be intense this month, and whether you are in a relationship, single or are deciding to move one of these situations forward, you will have every chance of success. You will know so well how to express subtlety in your feelings and others will be charmed and won over. TAURUS (APR. 21-MAY 21): April is the perfect month to get closer to each other, narrow the ranks or set your sights on whoever you like because Venus will be on your side. You will not lack strength and determination and can therefore afford, to be optimistic in April! From the 20th, the Sun takes over and offers to start a new cycle of expansion. The April 29 Full Moon represents a resetting of your relationship goals. It also gives a balanced and emotional perspective to your personal and professional goals over the next two weeks. Intimate relationships come into sharp focus. This is a good time to start a new relationship or energize an existing one. The reasons for any recent relationships tension will be plain to see. A month that promises to be lively and rather buoyant! All of you will benefit (each in your own way) from the graces of Venus, which will confirm the success of some and soothe the hearts of others (the 1st decan) who are a little less spoiled by the elements now! A month to have a good time sheltered from the weather! GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 21): In April, you will all be led to look back on your past and the last year, in order to draw the edifying lessons that you will try to apply from the 24th, when a new cycle of sentimental evolution opens. Being a social butterfly, you can talk to anyone about anything. Friends, neighbors, and colleagues are important to you, and you always make sure you’re actively involved in your local scene. Over the next few weeks, however, your community will expand tremendously. Get ready to broaden your horizons through dynamic social outreach. From the 24th, Venus slips into your sign and gives you back the reins. No doubt you will grab it quickly to make up for lost time (in fact not really since it has allowed you to take stock) and reconnect with a power of seduction that you will then exercise friend Gemini without being begged to do so! A month where you have the possibility to channel your emotions so that they serve your loves without hindering your projects, which will be the subject of many debates and will retain you more often than usual in this field! CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22): You invest your heart, body and soul in April to open a future that inspires you and convince your entourage to follow you in your initiatives to enchant life. Until the 24th, count on Venus to guide your steps and boost your ability to unite. The April 29 Full Moon should make you feel totally at ease physically, mentally and emotionally for the next two weeks. You will feel comfortable and confident being yourself with no need for pretence or pretending. If you have to work, you will be able to focus on the job with ambitious energy and do it well. If you want to relax you will be able to without feeling you should be doing something else. Indeed a somewhat authoritarian Mars could push you to reign supreme but it would be wise to team up even if ultimately you are the one who holds the reins! A month where you will often want to be optimistic. If only to go outside the norm and train everyone in your crazy race. Indeed, there is no question of depriving yourself, in April, but to make every effort to fully enjoy the present moment with the gaze turned ... toward the future and what you want to do! LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22): You have a mixed bag of influences this month but overall Your April 2018 horoscope is a good one. There are two helpful transits and two challenging ones. However, one of the helpful transits lasts nearly all month and will give you the mental powers to deal with any challenge. If you have a certain desire to shine with all your fire in society, have in mind that until the 24th, Venus increases your thirst for love and gratitude and invites you to fully exercise your power of seduction in the office to achieve your goals and attract and hold the attention of everyone! Whatever the constraints and challenges you face, you will use your charm to smooth things over and perhaps come out of discussions and debates that go around in circles. Starting on the 24th, you will undoubtedly seek to mobilize your partner, your friends, a clan, a network or a clientele in order to obtain their support. It will then probably start materializing some projects that are important to you and that you want to achieve preferably ... well accompanied! A month of April where you will not hesitate to be optimistic! You aspire to be seen, approved and loved and will not hesitate to deploy your assets to achieve it. Use your charisma to unite, stand out from the crowd, earn a promotion or simply send your messages smoothly. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): You aspire to raise or reach an ideal in love in April and will not hesitate to work so that your stories rise to the challenge and meet your level of demand. In order to test the depth of their feelings and possibly your own, stop arguing a little and titillate your partner sometimes. A month where your ardor and your desire to live exceptional idylls will push some to be a little too rigid, sometimes, in the expression of their desires and they risk cooling the atmosphere a little. Others will magnificently turn any situation to their benefit and others still feed a passionate atmosphere where tender dialogues will allow them to narrow the ranks and unroll April optimistically. This month, love should be at the center of your concerns and you will seek to evolve your bonds. It’s up to you to maintain the debates that will pull your stories up without trying to trap your partner at the risk of ruffling feathers. The others will know a priori what to say and what to do to reach their ideal without triggering quarrels or doubts but on the contrary by waking the desire of the other!

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): Expect a busy start to the month with Mercury retrograde joining the Sun. You also get a rare blue moon to amplify whatever you are feeling. This emotional intensity may linger for some and you may have to wait till the last week of April 2018 to make sense of it all. You will have the heart in April to move the lines in love and family! If the Sun invites you to take a step towards the other until the 20th, to open and maintain a constructive dialogue with your partner or certain members of your family, then Venus will undoubtedly help you to visualize and undertake the changes to be made in order to improve the atmosphere, your living conditions and your exchanges at home until the 24th. From the 24th, Venus could give you wings and especially the means to overcome some previous limitations and achieve your emotional ambitions! A month where you do not spare any effort to get what you want. Whether it’s more comfort, love, recognition or smoother exchanges, you’ll know what to say and what to do to achieve your goals and change the attitudes and behaviors around you! SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): Venus reigns over your exchanges until the 24th and could allow most of you to be optimistic in April and openly express your feelings. Planetary strength is equally divided between the eastern and western halves of the chart this month. Hence personal interests will be as much important as the interests of other people. Social skills and aggression have to be balanced depending on the situation by the Scorpions. From the 24th, Venus infuses the debates with passion and exalts your sensuality and may well make some of you want to embark for the land of love, Find a charming program to unroll preferably together, in a rather hot early spring! This month you should globally promote your emotional development! You might struggle to freely express your desires, but you can count on Venus to smooth things over and help you to take a step towards the other! Overall you should hardly complain in April, when Venus titillates and pushes you deliciously in the arms of your crush or whomever you will undoubtedly try to seduce! SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 20): Sagittarius is having a fantastic month in April 2018 with very high levels of energy and confidence. If you are into fine arts or other creative vocations, your ingenuity and innovations will come to the fore. Your works will be appreciated. This month the Sun will boost your libido and make you want to love and be loved. You will bet on your outstanding charm to rekindle the flame or make conquests and you bet on Venus to deploy a clear willingness to fully express your love and dedication. You have ad hoc means to gain unanimity in the ranks and begin to develop a way of life that tempts you and that you prepare for now. You will certainly discuss with your family the method to use and the purpose to reach and should restart debates that began in March, from the 15th, with the certainty of ending them by mid-May! An important month to try and agree with the other on the essentials. You certainly have an idea and a life plan in mind and will certainly have to defend it in April where you will not only have it at heart to be loved ... but also followed! CAPRICORN (DEC. 21-JAN. 20): There is an opportunity to make yourself noticed and loved, as well as to exercise your charm successfully until the 24th! Bet on your ability to radiate and seduce in all directions to brighten up your intimate life and perhaps reduce tensions that have existed since last month between you and your loved ones. You will be well advised to temper your moods and your ardor if you tend to use your authority to reign over the clan. Do everything to make others want to follow you rather than to try to constrain them! There is no doubt that you can’t do it, even if some people will no doubt find it more difficult to come to terms with discussions and procrastinations that may upset them and maintain an icy climate that will not make them feel very optimistic. April is a month that promotes the expression of feelings and could give color to your loves. You might have to deal with some family tensions which will obscure your potential somewhat and will mobilize you on the front of debates, that you will probably have a little trouble overcoming! AQUARIUS (JAN. 21-FEB.18): This April, Venus invites you to take care of your loved ones, to listen and keep listening to them and to make every effort to maintain serene exchanges. It may be time for some to turn a page, to abandon a form of life that does not suit them and for others to move and/or acquire real estate! You will be keen to live in harmony with your entourage and to pacify exchanges. It will be a question of managing the stewardship and the relationships you have within the clan! Do not hesitate to look into the past to understand the modes of operation that need to be eliminated, in order to live more in tune with yourself and others, or relate to your intuition, your inner wisdom and determine what is decidedly good for you and what questions you must ask now. An ideal month to step back and act knowingly. For some it will be to learn from the past and definitely turn a page. For others, to mobilize to improve their conditions of life! And for everyone, to connect well to their inner world so that their existence reflects their essential needs more than their previous conditioning! PISCES (FEB.18-MAR. 20): Venus will help you get your actions across smoothly this month. Even though some will have to argue to unlock the funds they lack to achieve their ambitions, you will also have the art and the way to expose projects that are important to you. This month use your charms and diplomacy to try to win the vote and convince your loved ones to believe you and follow you! Push the boundaries of the possible and expand your horizons. From the 24th, Venus invites you to take care of your loved ones and to make every effort to meet the expectations of those around you. It will be time to mobilize to appease potential conflicts, reassure those you love and narrow the ranks around common values and desires! This is a month where you will invest to realize your future prospects and will spare no effort to persuade your loved ones that you are making the right choices. Count on a charming Venus to allow you to smooth things over and erase any difficulties you encounter in the execution of your projects and the motivation of your troops! Courtesy of
