why? why another palm beach magazine? why now? why should I advertise? why? why? why? My response is "why not?" Why not have a new magazine catering to the young professionals that are moving into the newly renovated historic districts and high rises in West Palm Beach or Boca Raton, or in newly sprung cities such as Abacoa, CityPlace and Wellington? The audience is there; the stores, restaurants and businesses are, too. It is our goal at dnL™ to put them together. It's been my experience that many of us have travelled thousands of miles to move into one of Palm Beach County's luxury apartments and then never venture beyond the shopping plaza across the street. What happened to the spirit of adventure that brought us here? Are we ready to retire? Or are we just succumbing to the Leisureville mentality of our folks? Palm Beach County, like every great metropolitan area, has many hidden treasures — from little family-owned eateries to antique stores, galleries and more. All we need do is look out the tinted windows of our cars on the way from our gated communities to the parking structures at work. Look at the people opening their stores and washing their sidewalks. Take a shortcut one morning through a "neighborhood that I-95 forgot." See more of what Palm Beach County has to offer. For now, I still say, "Why not?” Maybe one day, you'll say it too! Remember, the message from the staff at dnL™ is: “It's your day, night & life ... be part of it!” Look for upcoming events such as the “b&b 100,” our search for the 100 most-eligible bachelors and bachlorettes in PB county. We know you’re out there, and we’ll find you. You’re welcome to e-mail our b&b100 search team at bb100@daynightlife.com. In the meanwhile, mix a mojito (page 29) and enjoy the premiere issue of dnL™ — Day.Night+Life magazine! Enjoy!

It is not my intention to diminish all the help and support I received from family and friends. Nor is it my intention to bury my sincerest thanks and heart-felt appreciation to so many, in a space so small. That said – I never could have accomplished this, without the love, support and ever-so-gentle nagging from my Mom.Without her help, guidance and belief in me, I would not be the man I am today. To my best friend and sensei, Chris, thanks for pushing me not to accept complacency and always to strive to do better.To my circle of friends, without all of you,not only would the party picture pages be empty,but so would my social calendar. I’ve been very lucky to find so many helpful and talented people willing to take a chance on me,especially photographers Evelyn Ridge and Montana Pritchard, and designers Jim Gonzales and Anthony Grant – it is because of their talent that this premiere issue looks so good.

musthaves In a world of “haves” and “have nots,” there is a new category emerging — the must haves.

2003 Nissan 350ZR

«

You know who you are. Always up with the latest trends, always first on your block to have the newest, fastest, flashiest gizmo, gadget or tool. Economists have even coined the term “early adapter” with you in mind. From appliances to cars, electronics to fashion accessories — if it’s new, you must have it!

The new Z® Roadster tops our list of “must-haves.” Designed to impress viewers at first sight, the new Z® does that and more. According to Mamoru Aoki, product chief designer, “We [the designers] wanted the design to be an expression of agility – very three-dimensional and moving. It looks fast, but not just in a straight line.” As you know, looks aren’t everything, and the engineers at Nissan kept that in mind when they powered the Z® with a 280hp, 3.5-liter V-6. With five models planned, there is something for everyone! And with a base price under $35K, it’s a certain must have! daynightlife.com

Deborah Weiner, owner/founder, Spa on the Run Have you ever gone to a spa and become frustrated with the long wait when all you want to do is get in and get out? As you wait for your appointment, acrid chemical smells float through the air, polluting your nostrils. Next, you begin to notice the noise from the hairdryers and all the gossipy chatter. You mutter to yourself: “Why am I here? I thought the spa was supposed to be relaxing.” Finally, there is a solution. Thanks to Deborah Weiner, owner and founder of Spa on the Run, you no longer have to experience waiting for an appointment. You will never have to go to the spa again; the spa will come to you! Deborah Weiner will bring her spa to your home, your yacht or your plane, whichever is more convenient for you. Spa on the Run amenities include natural hand and foot

treatments, facials, body masks, massages, hair and scalp treatments and make-up applications.

who Jay Dewing, owner, Dewing’s Fly & Gun

Think of South Florida and you think of scuba diving, water-skiing, tennis and golf — the typical attractions for a tourist. However, if you are a “local” and consider yourself a sportsman, what else does South Florida offer? It is a paradise for the hunter and fisherman. Did you know that South Florida is home to some of the best fishing and hunting? If you are interested, head over to Dewing’s Fly and Gun Shop, known as the “finest gun shop in the southern United States.” The business, which is named after local owner Jay Dewing, has been in West Palm Beach since 1932. What makes Dewing’s stand out? Besides the incredible selection of products, and the

14 |

daynightlife.com

knowledgeable staff, Dewing’s Fly and Gun shop prides itself on the ability to create a soup-to-nuts travel itinerary for the novice or the most skilled hunter or fisherman. Staff members have built trips for locals in South Florida and have even produced more intricate adventures, such as hunting trips in Brazil and in Russia. Perhaps the greatest part of Dewing’s is the willingness to advise you on the best areas to fish (although they requested that dnL™ not publish the locations in this article). Nevertheless, if you are interested in trying something new, stop by Dewing’s Fly and Gun Shop at 123 Datura St., West Palm Beach; or visit online at www.dewings.com.

swish Want to integrate your new pet into the family home without sacrificing good design or banishing your new family member to “puppy-prison”? Then BOWHAUS has the solution — its chic pet abode provides the privileged pup a safe, comfortable enclosure while functioning as a side table that would be an attractive addition to any hip home. By living in the heart of the owner’s living space, the pet feels safe, develops important early bonds, and cultivates good house behaviours that are essential to living with people.

Hello, this is NOT the person you were trying to reach … you have reached The Rejection Hotline! If you don't want to give out your real number, give the humorous Rejection Hotline number: 561-986-0035. When the unwanted suitor calls, he is not-so-subtly informed of your non-interest. The dating scene is full of people who can't take a hint or can't take "no" for an answer (and many who apparently can't take showers, brush their teeth, or go out in social settings without awkwardly embarrassing themselves by an inability to read a situation). By using the Rejection Hotline number, rejectees are able to hear the bad news in the privacy of their own homes, without being subjected to public embarrassment and/or ridicule from anyone who otherwise might have witnessed a more public rejection. Furthermore, there is no unanswered "what if," no desperate assumptions ("I must have just mis-dialed") and no ambiguity — all common by-products of randomly selected fake numbers.

The Challenge How to make a 25-year-old suburban Florida home appeal to a 30-something couple with diverse contemporary-urban tastes.

The Project Inside the master suite is an open washroom with his-and-her sinks on a dated colonial vanity. The wallpaper was so old, it was almost back in style. Well, almost.

Step-By-Step Remove wallpaper. Lots of elbow grease is required for this task. Inexpensive retail products are available (see buyers guide on next page) and will speed you along on this arduous task. Remove Mirror Again, not difficult as long as you’re not going to reuse the mirror. The squeamish might want to seek professional help in removing it. Check your local Yellow Pages for a professional in your area. (about $75).

Home Remodeling 101

Our resident design diva, teri, has rolled up her sleeves and accepted the challenge of remodeling a house on a shoestring budget. How tight a shoestring? You’ll be surprised how much you can accomplish for so little. Total cost for each project appears at the end of the article — no peeking, please.

Prepare Walls Remove all remaining adhesive from behind mirror, as well as all wallpaper glue residue (best accomplished with lots of hot water and a big sponge.) Fill any holes with pre-mixed spackle. Sand any rough areas, and you’re ready to paint. The Vanity As with all construction projects, if you’re off by a fraction of an inch, you may as well be off by a foot. Such was the case with this vanity. Unfortunately, the space was off by a half-inch, which precluded purchase of a ready-made vanity. So back to the drawing board we went. With a few new hinges and a fresh coat of paint on the vanity itself, we were able to solve the problem with a unique solution. Paint Choose your paints carefully — your brushes even more so. Each paint brand and color reacts differently. Make sure to look at the swatches in your house under your lighting conditions. That said, throw on an old shirt, grab a good-quality brush and start at the top. Cut into the edges, then fill with a roller. Once the walls have been painted, carefully mask off the areas surrounding the vanity, and begin to apply the new paint to the vanity. Exchange the hinges, rehang the doors and voilá. Now, turn the page for the transformation.

T le Two SHOES

TOP 10 THINGS TO OF

It was the best of sales, it was the worst of sales … or so the story goes. During a recent shopping excursion at the Boca Town Center Mall, it happened. What happened? Well, sit back, relax and prepare yourself for a story . 26 |

daynightlife.com

As I was saying… There I was, in the Town Center Mall, when it happened! I found a shoe sale at Banana Republic. After trying on this shoe and that shoe, I selected the Arcadia, a sleek black half-boot. I brought my find to the register, and the salesgirl let me in on an “insider secret.” Although the shoe was already marked down 50%, it was going down an additional 50% that evening. Not free, but real close. Not one to miss out on a sale, I had the sales girl put the shoes on “hold” and I would return the next day to make the purchase. After lying awake most of the evening, pondering which slacks would best show off my new shoes, I called the store. And indeed the shoes had been reduced again. Yes! A spectacular find had been made! But my elation was short-lived. The salesperson on the phone crushed my very existence with just six words: “Sorry, but your shoes were sold.” My shoes had been sold to someone else. “How could that be?!” I screamed incredulously into the phone. I explained the whole thing to the salesperson, all the sordid details: tried them on ... looked great ... felt taller ... better sale tomorrow.. will HOLD the shoes for you ... how I laid awake, dreaming of shoes and slacks ... and how with these new shoes, I was destined to meet the girl of my dreams! Now, I was destined to die a grumpy old man, alone and shoeless! What could be done!? Well, with each tragedy, a hero emerges. In this case, it was the store manager, Reynaldo. He got on the phone and apologized for the error. “But that’s not going to bring back my shoes,” I argued. “You’re right,” he began, “I can’t get those shoes back for you, but I’ll check with the other local stores and get back to you shortly.” He took down my name and number, and the wait began. I waited for hours, days, weeks — well, OK, just a few minutes. Anxiously, I dove to answer the ringing phone and immediately asked, “Where can I pick up my shoes? West Palm? PGA? Where? Where?” I was greeted by silence and a slightly disappointed sales manager. “I’m sorry, locally we’re sold out.” The horror of it all! Why me? How could this happen? I had slacks picked out! Once I survived the crush of disappointment, I realized that Reynaldo was still on the line and still talking. “Locally, we’re sold out,” he continued “but I’ve arranged to have the shoes overnighted to you — at our expense — from a different location if you still want them.” Did I still want them? Of course! I explained to him about the slacks, and about how I wasn’t going to die a grumpy old man, alone with no shoes. He was a true retail hero! True to his word, a box arrived from Banana Republic a few days later, and my shoes and I have been inseparable ever since! The moral of the story? It’s not about price, location, quality, fancy decorations or window displays; it’s about customer service. The manager went out his way to make me (an ordinary customer) happy. It’s this level of commitment to service that will keep me shopping at Banana Republic. Sure, the other factors are important, but Reynaldo realized an universal maxim: A happy customer is your best customer.

“Beautiful” and “colorful” are just a few of the words that come to mind when talking about Cabana Nuevo Latino’s decór. Add “flavorful” and “plentiful” and you’ve described the cuisine. Cabana “Las Palmas” located on the east end of Clematis Street, serves a fantastical blend of Latin cuisines. The dnL™ restaurant critic* made several unannounced visits and reports that — from the architecturally stacked coconut shrimp to the sizzling churrasco and the artfully arranged ceviché — you can't go wrong at Cabana “Las Palmas”. Dinners from $10; most lunches under $8. 118 Clematis St., West Palm Beach, FL 33401, 561-833-4773 1

BIZAARE AVE. CAFE

Rumored to be the drink of choice for Ernest Hemingway, the Mojito is a perfect accompaniment to the flavors of the Nuevo Latino dining experience. Although Cabana would not divulge its secret recipe, the owner did give us these useful hints: “The key to [making] an excellent Mojito is fresh ingredients and a good-quality rum. We use Barcardi Limon, which further enhances the citrus flavors of the drink.” After diligent research and muchos mojitos, we think we may have broken the code. Here's the dnL™ version. Salud!

Mojito 2 ounces Barcardi Limon 1/2 ounce simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water)

8-10 fresh mint leaves 1 lime cut into slices 4 ounces club soda Put simple syrup, mint and lime into glass. Using a wooden pestle, muddle the ingredients until you can smell the mint, and most of the juice is free of the lime. Add the Barcardi Limon and ice.

Executive Chef, Tsunami

When asked what makes West Palm Beach great, Executive Chef Brian Kenny answered, "…the growth potential. The old Palm Beach is classic, and the new Palm Beach has vision." Brian implements his vision every day at the Asian Fusion restaurant Tsunami. He creates his unique dishes by incorporating basic ingredients with a new preparation or "fusing" them with distinctly Asian flavors. The dishes are simple yet focused. The results? A mouthwatering experience!

I'm not famous or even infamous – well, maybe infamous with my staff. What do you offer to the community? Hopefully, a mind-blowing experience in the restaurant.

How did West Palm Beach get so lucky to capture and retain this 29-year-old food genius? The lure of West Palm Beach came with the prospect of utilizing his background and innovation to originate Tsunami’s menu, select his own staff, and bring an intriguing dining concept to reality as Executive Chef. However, Brian's love affair with South Florida began 20 years ago when he moved here with his family. His culinary career began at The Biltmore Hotel in Miami and has

included stints at The Mar-a-lago Club and The Four Seasons, both in Palm Beach. He credits his largest growth opportunity to his favorite artist, chef Norman Van Aken, owner of Norman's in Miami. It was in Miami that Norman taught Brian about "embracing creativity." Brian has taken that creativity and poured it into Tsunami, his dream. Moreover, what drives this local chef to create his passionate concoctions? "The smiles on peoples’ faces after a good meal." daynightlife.com
