Well it’s the time of the year where I put together my ode to 2018. I usually embarrass myself by sharing my New Year’s Resolutions. While good intentioned, rarely kept. This year rather then share my goals for 2019, I feel the need to share my gratitude for everyone who has enhanced my life and made it possible to give you such an extensive list of area events. So, I want to use my last column of 2018 to thank the people who are backstage to my life and the magazine.


I want to thank my family including my Father, my mother, brother and sister, daughter and aunt that rallied behind me over the past year. My sweet granddaughters that forgave me for my lack of parenting skills or overly ambitious (depends on who you ask.) And for having made it their lives ambition to become a doctor and a scientist. Their mission: to ensure I stay young forever. I am hoping they keep that dream past the age of 6, and grateful they think I am young. My son and daughter in-law who found the strength to choose health and happiness for their lives, for joining the team of BackStage Pass, and for giving me my newest granddaughter, Delilah.


I want to thank my Art Director Ana who had no idea what was about to happen in my life when she took the job but has withstood the storm to persevere. Thanks Kim on lists who has taken such pride being a part of BackStage Pass Magazine despite the bricks that were thrown at us.

have rallied around BackStage Pass Magazine and have supported me through the ups and far more downs that came my way in 2018. But like all strong women, we have picked up the bricks hurled at us and built a strong foundation.

Thank you to my clients, the supporters of BackStage Pass Magazine that share their events in the form of ads and who make it possible for us to produce and distribute to over 55,000 readers. And for you the readers, without you there would be no BackStage Pass Magazine. By reading, supporting and contributing to our success in a way that has made BackStage Pass Magazine the number one entertainment resource in all of Volusia and Flagler counties. Maybe I will share one New Year’s resolution. One that I am sure I won’t break. A personal challenge behind me, I am able to give 100 percent to BackStage Pass Magazine once again, and I promise our readers and supporters the best year ever. New exciting things will happen in 2019 so don’t go anywhere. Happy New year!

My friends, especially Kathy and Ann, who

have always loved an elegant Christmas. Whether it’s when I lived with 4 roommates in an apartment or after I was married hosting groups of 25. Even last year when my girlfriends and I invited 150, I love the opportunity to dress up and serve an amazing elegant meal. Here are my appetizer and main dish recipes that I will be serving this year, and I hope you will get to enjoy them as well. An elegant appetizer (one of two) is the CLASSIC SMOKED SALMON TOAST POINTS. My 25 year old daughter can’t get enough smoked salmon. I said I like elegant, I did not say I like a lot of work. So I modified the traditional way a bit by buying my herbed cream cheese Philadelphia brand, instead of making it. I also avoid gluten and heavy carbs when I can, so instead of the toast points I use cucumber slices. Here is the traditional recipe and you can make changes where you see fit. But one thing I would not skimp on is the smoked salmon, use a good quality one. I like to assemble them but if you want to be more casual, just set out the ingredients and let your guests put them together. The second appetizer I suggest is a big hit at my sister’s house every year. Known for the most elegant soirées in the city, she would not like me giving away this simple and easy recipe that impresses like you spent all day on it. BOURBON WHISKEY HOLIDAY MEATBALLS. Presentation is everything so serve them in your most impressive chaffing dish. For the main course, it’s the holidays and my main course needs to be a show stopper. My Father always cooked a crown roast on Christmas day. CHRISTMAS PORK CROWN ROAST WITH STUFFING AND GRAVY is so elegant and delicious. Be sure to call Publix or Gaff’s etc. and order it by the number of ribs for how many guests you have. 1 ½ per person, starting with an 8 or 9 pound Frenched and prepped. Splurge on the little paper hats, it’s worth it.

CLASSIC SMOKED SALMON TOAST POINTS INGREDIENTS FOR THE HERBED CREAM CHEESE: • 4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature • Zest of 1/2 lemon • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice • 1 1/2 Tbs. chopped fresh chives • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh dill • 6 slices white or wheat sandwich bread, crusts removed, each cut into 4 triangles • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted • 6 oz. smoked salmon, thinly sliced • 1/2 cup finely chopped red onion • 1/2 cup capers, finely chopped • 3 hard-cooked eggs, peeled and grated • Dill sprigs for garnish

DIRECTIONS To prepare the herbed cream cheese, in a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, lemon zest, lemon juice, chives

and dill. Stir with a wooden spoon until well blended. Transfer to a serving bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Preheat an oven to 350F. Brush the bread on both sides with the melted butter. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and transfer to the oven. Bake until the toast points are golden and slightly crispy, about 15 minutes. Let cool completely. To assemble, spread the herbed cream cheese on the toast points and place 1/2 to 1 whole slice of salmon on top. Garnish with the onion, capers, hard-cooked eggs and dill sprigs. Arrange on a platter. Alternatively, arrange the toast points and smoked salmon on platters. Place the herbed cream cheese, onion, capers, hard-cooked eggs and dill sprigs in separate serving bowls and let guests assemble their own hors d’oeuvres. Serves 8 to 10.

BOURBON WHISKEY HOLIDAY MEATBALLS INGREDIENTS • 1 pound Bag Frozen Meatballs • ½ cups Ketchup (Heaping) • ½ cups Brown Sugar, Packed • ¼ cups Bourbon Whiskey • 1 teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce

DIRECTIONS NOTE: 1 bag of (1 pound) frozen meatballs is only about 18 to 20 larger size meatballs. That is perfect for a small

get-together. But if you’re going to a larger party, you might want to get TWO bags of meatballs, and in that case you would then DOUBLE the above recipe. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients except your meatballs. Mix up really well. Place your frozen meatballs into your crock pot, and pour the whiskey sauce in on top. Mix it up all around so each meatball is coated with the whiskey sauce. Now turn up the heat to high. Leave it on high for about an hour, stirring a couple times. Once it appears that the meatballs have somewhat thawed, go ahead and turn your burner down to low and serve warm.


• 1/2 bunch thyme, leaves only • 1/2 bunch fresh sage, leaves only • 2 cloves garlic, gently smashed and paper removed • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper • Extra-virgin olive oil • 10 pounds pork rib roast (about 12 to 14 ribs) Apple Pecan Stuffing, recipe follows • Gravy, recipe follows • Watercress, for garnish, optional APPLE PECAN STUFFING: 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra for finishing • 1/2 bunch fresh sage • 1/2 bunch fresh thyme • 1 large Spanish onion, thinly sliced • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper • 3 Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced • 1 1/2 cups raw pecans • 2 eggs • 3/4 cup heavy cream • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken stock • 5 cups sourdough bread (crusts removed), hand-torn into 1-inch pieces • 1/4 bunch fresh flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped GRAVY: 2 medium carrots, roughly chopped • 1 large onion, roughly chopped • 3 ribs celery, roughly chopped • 1 medium turnip, peeled and roughly chopped • 1 large Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped • 1 clove garlic, peeled • Extra-virgin olive oil • 2 tablespoons allpurpose flour • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper ª 1 cup apple liqueur (recommended: Calvados) • 4 cups low-sodium chicken stock


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Set rack on the bottom third of the oven so the roast will fit completely inside. 1 In a small mixing bowl or mortar and pestle, combine thyme, sage, garlic, and salt and pepper, to taste, and mash to break up herbs and garlic. Add oil, about 1 cup, and combine with pestle. 2. Take crown roast of pork and if your butcher hasn’t already prepared it, clean the bones of meat with a boning knife (French them) and make a small cut into the meat in between each rib so you can wrap it into a circle easily; save the scraps. Rub the pork all over with the herb mixture. With the ribs on the outside, wrap the rack around onto itself so the ends meet and secure with kitchen twine so it holds its crown shape. *Cook’s note: if you are doing this by yourself, using a skewer to help hold its shape while you wrap the kitchen twine around the roast. 3. Place in a roasting pan. Add the scraps into the bottom of the pan alongside the roast. This will help add flavor to your sauce. Set aside to bring the pork to room temperature prior to cooking. 4. Fill the cavity with Apple Pecan Stuffing. 5. Cover the stuffing and the tips of the rib bones with foil then place the whole roast in the oven and bake for 2 hours and 20 minutes, an instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should register 150 degrees F when done. About 30 to 45 minutes prior to doneness, remove the foil to brown the stuffing and create a crust. Remove from the oven, loosely cover with foil and allow to rest for 30 minutes before cutting. Serve with Apple Pecan Stuffing and Gravy. Garnish with watercress, if desired. APPLE PECAN STUFFING: 1. Set a large sauté pan over medium heat and add olive oil, sage and thyme sprigs. As the oil heats up the herbs will crackle and fry, infusing the oil. Remove the sage and thyme and set aside on a paper towel to drain - these can be as a garnish, if desired. Add onions to the pan and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes until caramelized. Season with salt and pepper. Remove onions from pan and add apples. Crush the pecans and add to the pan. Add more oil, if needed and season with salt and pepper. Gently sauté until pecans are lightly toasted and apples are just cooked slightly - about 3 to 5 minutes. In a large mixing bowl whisk together egg, cream, chicken stock, and salt and pepper, to taste. Add torn sourdough, caramelized onions, apples, pecans and chopped parsley. Using a wooden spoon, mix the stuffing until well combined. GRAVY: 1 Place carrots, onion, celery, turnip, apple and garlic in a food processor and pulse until you have a coarse textured puree. Once roasting pan comes out of the oven (and meat is removed) set it over mediumhigh heat on the stove. Add a 2-count of olive oil then add vegetable puree. Sweat for 7 to 8 minutes until most of the moisture has cooked off, then dust with flour. Cook for 2 more minutes stirring well to incorporate all the flour with the fat in the pan. Add the apple liqueur and scrape the bottom of the pan. Gradually add chicken stock, stirring as you go to ensure there are no lumps. Bring to a simmer and season well with salt and pepper. Simmer then remove from heat and strain through a sieve - it’s okay if some of the pulp goes through as this will naturally add body to the gravy..

For December 2018 SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 20): You’re ready to get moving and grooving this month, Sag, and start in earnest on the 6th, when Mercury goes direct. This little planet packs a punch, as he rules both your career and relationships. On the 13th, Mercury will move into your first house of self, allowing you to sparkle at work. If you’re single, he’ll help you attract a fair share of potential partners. Bringing your confidence to the table will come with ease. On the 2nd, Venus, your personal planet of health, makes her way into your 12th house of spirituality. Connect your mind with your body this month — you’ll feel more grounded for it. We all know that you’re a fireball, Sag, but don’t let yourself burn out by giving too much of yourself to others. On the 22nd, the sun moves into your money house. Celebrate each victory with your friends and get ready for a fabulous 2019.

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 21): Feel that, Gem? Your ruling planet, Mercury, will go direct on December 6, clearing the minds of those around you. Neptune, your personal planet of career, ended its own retrograde late last month and now it’s creating a favorable aspect with Mars, the planet of action, from the 5th to the 7th. Neptune rules inspiration, and from this position it will spur you to make your wildest ideas a reality. You’ve had a long time to think about what you really want and now is the time to act! Your money planet, the moon, begins a new cycle in Sagittarius on the 7th. If you already have next year’s budget on your mind, this is an excellent day to get started. Break your work into smaller tasks until the moon is full on the 22nd. By then, you’ll be ready to do some big-picture thinking and doing.

CAPRICORN (DEC. 21-JAN. 20): You’re always a little tougher after a Mercury retrograde, Capricorn. The planetary ruler of your health and work zones will go direct on the 6th, helping you get back to what you do best — solving problems. Whether you’re single or attached, the new moon in Sagittarius on the 7th will put you in good spirits. The moon rules your relationships, so spend this night contemplating what you want to see for yourself when it comes to love. Let these emotions build as the moon waxes, then speak from the heart on the 22nd when the full moon is in Gemini in the morning. In the evening, stay with your emotions as the moon will scoot into Cancer. That same day, the sun moves into your sign and your house of self. You’ll feel ready to get back to your goals and take on the world. Watch out on the 24th, when Mercury squares with Neptune. You’ll want to explain some of your dreamier ideas, but they could come out wrong. Put your thoughts to paper and bounce them off a close friend before presenting them to the group.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22): It’s time for you to gather your inner thoughts. On the 6th, Mercury, your personal planet of spirituality, will help you expand your self-understanding. His direct motion will support you in your reflections. Did you have any eureka moments over this past retrograde? Take what you learned and turn it into an affirmation for yourself. Begin your day with clarity and gratitude. On the 7th, a new moon in Sagittarius will inspire you to bring your ambitions to life. Write down your most cherished dreams and ask your confidants for advice on how to make them real. The sun enters your seventh house of relationships and friendship on the 22nd. Combining this movement with Capricorn season will put you in the right place to make moves at work, or even start to move down a whole new career path. Keep your ear to the ground. On the same day, the full moon arrives in Gemini, which will highlight your communication skills. The moon will enter Cancer, shifting your focus to your emotions. Find somewhere quiet to process your thoughts that evening.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 21-FEB.18): Patience is paramount, Aquarius. Keep working on yourself as Uranus makes his way back to direct motion in early 2019. On the 2nd, Venus will enter your 10th house of career and social status. She’ll help you win trust and gain favors at work — she may even bump up your IG following. On the 7th, a new moon in Sagittarius will help you formulate a plan to improve your health and work. The morning of the 22nd, when the moon will move into Cancer, helping you process any excess energy. Enjoy as many holiday get-togethers with friends as you can! After the 22nd, the sun will be in your 12th house of spirituality, urging you to gain introspection. If you’re single, your priority will be to find an intuitive connection with someone new. If you’re in a relationship, seek out shared spiritual experiences with your partner. Mars will inhabit your money house all month long, placing a strong emphasis on your earning power.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22): Thinking about how you want to increase your earnings this month, Leo? You’ll find more clarity when your financial planet, Mercury, goes direct on the 6th. He’ll be in your fourth house of home and family until the 13th, helping you make wise spending decisions when it comes to your living space. After the 13th, Mercury will move into your fifth house of pleasure! Get ready to get your glow on — this placement is all about fun spending. You’ll be a better gift-giver than Santa. Romantically speaking, you may feel like you’re on shaky ground this month, as Uranus, your personal planet of love, has been retrograde since August. Despite this sense of uncertainty, you can still have fun with your love life this month. Live it up! After that, your ruling planet will move into your sixth house of health and work. Combined with the energy of your career planet, Venus, this placement will have you feeling unstoppable.

PISCES (FEB.18-MAR. 20): If you’ve had some emotional roadblocks in the last three weeks, yit’s going to be smooth sailing after December 6 when Mercury goes direct. Your personal planet of love, home, and family life will help you in your relationships, romantic and familial. Mercury will make his way into your 10th house of social standing and career, supporting you in your efforts to impress your manager and any other powers that be. Make the most of it by seizing every opportunity that comes your way. On the 7th, invest in your own ideas. The new moon will arrive in Sagittarius and urge you to plant the seeds of your next big plan. Spend a little time each day pushing your project ahead (watering those seeds, so to speak) as the moon waxes to fullness in Gemini on the morning of the 22nd. Talk your heart out, but reflect on how the bigger picture of this idea makes you feel. Make sure that it correctly represents you before acting on anything.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): Your ruling planet, Mercury, is going direct on the 6th, just int time to help you make progress in your career aspirations. Even though you’re killing it at work, don’t push yourself too hard as Uranus, your personal planet of health and work, is still retrograde. The planet of change will be going direct in early 2019. Spend this month crafting your plan of attack for the new year — your financial planet, Venus, will lend a helping hand. On the 2nd, Venus will move into Scorpio, the sign of reinvention, who also rules your third house of communication. Think carefully about how to present yourself to the world that will open you up to more opportunities. Mars, your personal planet of sexuality, will spend the entire month in your seventh house of relationships. If you’re attached, do something out of the ordinary for your partner this month — they’ll love you all the more for it. If you’re single, you may ignite a flame that turns into a roaring fire. If their energy matches yours, you could be in for a very warm winter.

ARIES (MAR. 21-APR. 20): On the 2nd, Venus moves into your eighth house of sex, death, and rebirth. This house also oversees any potential income headed your way. Your personal planet of love and money is posting up here to help you make positive changes in your relationship with cash. Whether you’re paying off credit card debt or taking out a loan, the odds are in your favor. From the 5th to the 7th, Mars will conjunct Neptune. You’ll receive a vision of how to satisfy your desires. Keep a dream journal and pay attention. You could stumble upon something great! Don’t let it escape you and write down your thoughts when inspiration hits. Have you been pushing yourself? You’re about to be recognized for your efforts at work. The sun is moving into your 10th house of career on the 22nd. Make major career moves toward the end of the month. TAURUS (APR. 21-MAY 21): Whether you’re in a relationship or single, romantic matters may heat up this month, thanks to Venus, who is gaining steam in your seventh house. Pluto, your personal love planet, will only add fuel to the fire. You are attractive, sexy and confident. You exude holiday sex appeal. But your love life isn’t the only area that will see forward momentum. You can also expect growth in your finances, as your money planet, Mercury, goes direct on the 6th. Make decisions that will help you reach your long-term financial goals, like chipping away at a credit card, collecting outstanding debts or making an investment. Mid-month, the messenger planet will move into your eighth house of death and rebirth. This house also rules your taxes, so consider this your chance to get organized for next year. And, if you’ve been meaning to clean out your closet, this is also a great period to do just that. Less is more. On the 22nd, the sun will move into your house of expansion. You may feel the bite of the travel bug. Where do you want to go next? Try to leave your regular stomping grounds for the holidays!

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): You’re always seeking balance, Libra,. On the 2nd, your planetary ruler, Venus, will make her way into your second house of possessions and finances. Mercury, your personal planet of luck and spirituality, will end its retrograde on the 13th. It’s a great time to go after what you want. If you don’t ask for it, how will you know if it’s possible? And you’ll be ready to put in the work for your dreams by the 22nd, when the sun moves into Capricorn. Cut out tasks that no longer serve you. The moon fuels your career aspirations this month especially on the 7th. Spend some time thinking about how you can focus your energies toward a specific end goal. Reflect on this until the 22nd’s full moon in Gemini. Get ready to put your ideas into action that morning, then brace yourself for some feels in the evening. Retreat to the comfort of your home. Stay in touch with your emotions, but don’t let them control you. SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): Romance on your mind, Scorpio? On the 2nd, Venus, your personal planet of love, will move into your first house of self. The planet of beauty and charm will make you downright magnetic to those who might look your way. If you’re in a relationship, your partner won’t be able to take their eyes off you! Give as much attention as you get and enjoy lots of private time with your honey during this snowy month. If you’re single, expect your dating apps to light up. Anyone who matches with you is sure to be enchanted. You’ve got the goods, Scorp — make sure they know it. Having a hard time feeling comfortable at home? Uranus, your personal planet of home and family, is still retrograde. He’ll restart his forward movement in early 2019, but, until then, you may have to deal with some minor inconveniences. Exercise compassion when speaking with your family members and remember to be patient.

Omission IPA is a bold, hop forward Northwest-style IPA. Pacific Northwest hops give it notable pine, citrus, and grapefruit aromas and flavors.

MAIN STREET STATION AND BICYCLES FOR KIDS Main Street Station is an iconic bar located in the heart of Main Street, Daytona Beach. An authentic garage bar, it once was owned by NASCAR founder Bill France Sr. A bar/ night club and entertainment venue now, they specialize in live music and large festival style events. They have three open-air bars, ample bike and car parking, nightly specials, pool tables, and large clean restrooms, a must for a successful bar. A family owned business for 25 years, Phaedra Lee has been running Main Street Station for 10 years. Nothing gives their fam-

ily more pride then the charity events held at the venue. One close to Phaedra’s heart is the current campaign BICYCLES FOR KIDS, sponsored by RICE LAW FIRM. Bicycles for Kids is in it’s 5th year and has picked up support from other bar owners as well as the community. Bikers and non-bikers come together every year to make hundreds of kids, who might otherwise do without, have a Christmas to remember. The first year was impressive with 35 bikes dropped off to Main Street Station. The second year 75, the third year 115 and the 4th year, 160 bicycles were donated. Even faced with inclement weather on the day of the run, Bicycles for kids currently has 100 bicycles donated. A charity event of this magnitude can only be possible when other restaurateur’s and bar owners come together to make it successful. Names like The Original First Turn, Sopotnick’s Cabbage Patch, Racings North Turn and Giuseppe’s Pizza were not only stops on the run, but they themselves, and their loyal patrons, contributed bicycles for the kids. But it’s also the businesses, organizations and people behind the scenes that make everything run smoothly. And most importantly


they make sure the bicycles get into the hands of the children who need them most. With 100 bicycles at Main Street Station, you can imagine storage was needed. Thanks to Midwestern Motorcycles, that storage was provided. Halifax Urban Ministries, Family Renew, Guardian Ad Litem, local churches and even the Daytona Police Department help to insure the distribution of the bikes. If you missed the Bicycles for Kids Run, you can still participate. The third annual FREEDOM POKER RUN Will be held on December 15. $10 per bike, registration starts at 11 AM at Main Street Station. The funds raised goes to Messengers for Homelessness who specialize in locating homeless veterans and they in turn, give 30% to Bicycles for Kids. If you prefer to just donate a bicycle, Main Street Station is accepting Bikes through December 20.

as well as their interactive new website being launched in mid-February. Bike Week Entertainment for 2019 is already looking to have more well know bands than any other venue. Drowning Pool, Saliva have been leaked to be part of the lineup. Stay tuned to BackStage Pass Magazine, WWW.MAINSTREETLIVE. COM and facebook for more information.

Main Street Station is well known for their large successful charity events such as Battle of the Babes, Rock for Food, Freedom Fest, The Shriner’s Back to the Roots, and numerous motorcycle runs throughout the year. You can expect more of the same this year
