Winners will be revealed in our March 3rd Platinum List edition of Ladue News.
KATIE YEADON My favorite fairy tale is definitely “Cinderella.” To me, it’s such a timeless classic and the ultimate princess story. Plus, her dress and shoes? To die for.

EDITOR ALTHOUGH THIS WINTER HAS BEEN MILD COMPARED TO YEARS past, the cold temperatures still have me yearning for hibernation – and by hibernation I mean curled up by the fireplace, good book in hand, my “fur babies” close by and a hearty homemade meal awaiting to be enjoyed. If you, too, are in this “hibernation haze,” we’ve got a few stories sure to meet your needs. In this week’s Abode section, LN contributing writer Nancy Robinson features three beautiful fireplace screen protectors on p. 36. Not only are these pieces useful while relaxing by the fire, but also they’ll transform your fireplace into a focal point in your abode. In this month’s Healthy Appetite column on p. 56, LN contributing writer Sherrie Castellano shares a recipe for a grain bowl with root vegetables, beans and parsley oil. This healthy and flavorful meal will help you stick to your clean eating goals, and it’s also a quick yet hearty lunch or dinner perfect for lazy winter days. Last, but certainly not least, check out this month’s Happily Ever After story on p. 58, written by staff writer and digital editor Robyn Dexter. Dexter shares the story of Tristan and Isolde – two kittens recently rescued by the Humane Society of Missouri. This story will not only warm your heart but also possibly convince you to open your door to a rescue pet – or “fur baby” – as well. All the best,

We are changing the stray numbers in this city. We’re down 21 percent in three years. So we’re trying to eliminate euthanizing and make sure all the pets have loving homes, as does my dog and my friends’ dogs. So that’s really where I feel it – if we can get them off the streets and make sure all the pets that are out there are wanted, not discarded. TONI RATTEREE, HOSTESS

It has a meaning for me so far as the life experience. When you think about the different attributes that a person has to face and the adversity that someone has to face throughout life, meaning a job, being able to communicate with somebody, just different things that come into play, holding a conversation with somebody, being courteous to somebody, there’s a lot of things that I’ve picked up in the Boys & Girls Club that I’ve been able to relate to other people and help them out, also when it comes to mentoring.

ISLAND IN THE SUN
By Robyn Dexter
he Chesterfield client came to Cori Dyer of Cure Design Group with a vision. She was looking for a big remodel that she had investigated four years prior, but had never implemented. Dyer says the client had a grand staircase in the front of the house in addition to a back staircase that went through the kitchen area. The client wanted the staircase moved to the living room, allowing the unused bar area to be transformed into a usable part of the kitchen. Once the staircase plan was put in place, Dyer focused on the kitchen. Although it’s a spacious area, the client didn’t want two islands and so opted for one big island that’s approximately 9 feet across. “[The client] wanted something all three of her kids could sit at,” Dyer says. Dyer also helped the client pick out the right stain for her flooring since the cabinets are both dark and heavy. “We wanted to find a way to keep it light-feeling, since the white kitchen thing wasn’t for her,” Dyer says. “We also went with fun lighting, too.”

withered foliage should be removed as needed. Poynter notes that artificial foliage also can be included in urns and planters. He has used artificial apples and trailing moss to enhance outdoor displays. These items can look extremely fresh and lifelike and can be saved for use year after year. “Even sitting up close, it is almost impossible to tell whether or not it’s real without picking up an apple and trying to eat it,” he says. Permanent landscaping around the home also can feature a number of plants that remain green and blooming through the winter. Bob Krull, owner and founder of Rescue Landscaping & Outdoor Living in Olivette, recommends Norway spruce for its “beautiful green color that looks great with snow on it,” and winterberry, a type of deciduous holly with bright red berries that provide color during the winter months. “I also like Edgeworthia, known as paperbush, which is a multibranched shrub that drops its leaves in December to reveal a dark bark with beautiful clusters of white and yellow flowers that last until April.” Graeler likes Blue Princess Holly, which has deep greenish-blue, glossy evergreen leaves with dark red berries and reddish-purple stems. She also recommends witch hazel, a deciduous shrub that blooms threadlike petals during the winter months and has a sweet fragrance. “The petals of the blooms actually curl up at night, but once the sun comes out, they uncurl,” she says. Depending on the variety, the blooms can range from yellow to orange-red or even a coppery-red. “Last but definitely not least is the perennial helleborus, or hellebores, also known as the Christmas
rose,” Graeler says. “It has a dark-green, sawtoothedged evergreen leaf and is a midwinter bloomer. Depending on the variety, they can bloom in white, red, soft green or pink. The bloom will pop up over a light snow, giving an expectant feeling for spring.” All of these plants should be mulched well and watered, especially if there has been little rain or snow. Any additional landscape plants should be trimmed and mulched for the winter, removing any dead branches or foliage. Finally, plants aren’t the only way to bring life to a drab winter landscape. “One option, because flowering plants are impossible in the winter, is to have some nice hardscape in your backyard,” Krull says. “One way to really spice up a backyard during those cold months is with a beautiful fire pit. Even if it’s not the most ideal situation for outdoor entertaining, a fire pit can provide an ambiance and warmth that will keep guests comfortable and entertained. A warm fire can almost be mesmerizing and provide a very peaceful feeling.” Chesterfield Valley Nursery, 16825 N.

his might not seem like gardening season, but winter plantings can add beauty to drab landscapes. Surprisingly, there are a number of ways to use hardy winter plants to add color and texture to your home and garden while waiting for warmer weather. One option is to place small evergreens, available at local nurseries, in ornamental planters. Small hollies or dwarf Alberta spruces are two popular choices, says Debi Graeler of Chesterfield Valley Nursery in Chesterfield. “You still want to follow the recipe of ‘the pillar, the filler and the spiller,’ meaning you have something tall, something to fill around that pillar and then a trailing type of evergreen or a perennial of winter interest.” Richard Poynter of Poynter Landscape Architecture & Construction in Ballwin agrees that decorative planters can be useful on patios and porches, where they appear whether approaching the house or looking out windows. “Choosing the correct container or urn is important, and the size is important, as well,” he says. “Fewer larger urns make a much better impact than multiple small ones. There are fiberglass ones that are lightweight and unaffected by freezing temperatures.” If your planters are concrete or terra cotta and in danger of cracking due to freezing and thawing of soil and water, then plants can be “staged” by leaving them in their nursery pots and filling in with mulch or moss, Graeler adds. Winter planters can last two to three months when cared for properly. Watering is recommended every week to 10 days, especially if the weather warms to more than 40°F, and dead or

fter disaster strikes, resulting in property loss from fire, smoke, water or storm damage, the reality sinks in. Picking up the pieces of your property can not only be tough but also heartbreaking. In St. Louis, no company understands this better than ULTIMA Disaster Restoration, which steps in to help repair the destruction. “One of the most important things, upon arrival, is to have an empathetic approach,” president Steven DeRossett says. “There can be items of sentimental value that have been damaged. We take an ownership mentality to restore the owner’s peace of mind.” The ULTIMA crew is driven by the training philosophy of taking ownership for each repair project. From the top on down, every employee approaches a property with that same focus, delivering understanding alongside results to property owners. “Our primary tagline is ‘Our people. Your property. One passion.’ In the aftermath of a loss, there are so many things going through a property owner’s head. They rely on us to pick up the pieces and take on that ownership where, sometimes, emotionally, they can’t,” DeRossett explains. “We get in there, roll up our sleeves and act as if it’s our own property.” Frozen pipes prove to be one of the biggest culprits of wintertime disasters. ULTIMA assures clients and prospective clients that the first step in moving forward is to know whom to contact. “Education
and knowledge about these types of service can be a challenge, but just knowing a business like ours is out there is half the battle,” DeRossett claims. “We [may be] a new brand to town, but we are not brand-new by any stretch of the imagination. Combined with our 60-plus years of insurance claims experience, we’ve made all the right investments to ensure we can handle commercial or residential jobs of any size. ULTIMA is always ready 24/7 to respond, with the right tools and state-of-the-art equipment. Everything we use on the job site is on the cutting edge of technology and best-in-class.”

Even with the right equipment, ULTIMA strives to do more than just repair properties. It hopes to restore one’s sense of security. “Typically, when the owner has had a chance to come up for air towards the end of that job, they say, ‘Wow, you saved my day … my week … my holiday,’” DeRossett says. “We know taking ownership is not only important for our brand recognition, but ultimately, for our moral philosophy at ULTIMA.” St. Louis, MO, 888-999-2610 ultimarestoration.com

ithin a sought-after Wildwood neighborhood lies this elegant brick-and-stone residence. Begin your day stretched out in bed inside the spacious master suite, with a raised ceiling, before sauntering downstairs to the open kitchen, where you can whip up omelets on the center island while catching up with the family.

Downstairs, the lower level provides numerous possibilities for conversion from its open, finished recreation area to perhaps an additional bedroom, theater room or more, with walk-out access. A 3-car garage, a mudroom and an office are added bonuses to this lovely dwelling found by the lake.

From concept to completion, creating an extraordinar y event is a piece of cake for Catering St. Louis Events. The event-planning company focuses on inspired spaces, recognizing the venue decision can determine all else. “A venue is almost always the first thing people look at, and we understood that early on,” president Mark Erker claims. “Probably 80 percent of people already have something in mind for a space or area. It might be a loft space or something downtown … formal or funky. They want something that [reflects] their personality.” Based on the chosen venue, Catering St. Louis Events whips up the perfect icing, down to the details, so you can have your cake – and eat it, too.

rom walking down the aisle to celebrating a stupendous year for the company, creating an event worthy of the occasion requires some serious work. Luckily, Catering St. Louis Events is more than willing and able to do the heavy lifting. “Our main focus is on event spaces,” president Mark Erker says of the company’s approach to event planning. “By having our own spaces, we can give [clients] a better product. We have better control over everything, from recommending people to using our own equipment to knowing the idiosyncrasies of the property itself.” A trending event style is to create a natural aesthetic, such as by escaping to the country. Moving an event outside of city limits can put on the added stress of having to determine how people will get to and from the location or even ensuring restrooms are readily

available. Erker describes an ideal event space that tackles all the big questions and creates that wineryinspired getaway for clients and their guests. “We own 16 acres in Pike County, called Three Barn Farm. It is just an unbelievably beautiful property that reminds me of Sonoma Valley in California,” he shares. “It’s a one-stop event space. We own the china, glassware and flatware. We have working toilets [on-site]. We have partnerships with transportation companies. Often, you have to rent a lot of these things – even the restrooms – when you pick a space. Everything is offered here. You don’t need to do much more.” Catering St. Louis Events looks after the details, too, as is evident by its ability to offer farm-to-table stylizing dining at Three Barn Farm. “I took an apprenticeship at EarthDance, a great organic facility in Ferguson. I have a big garden up there, and now,
we’re expanding,” Erker explains. “We’ve plotted out a quarter of an acre at Three Barn Farm, with hopes to get up to an acre of vegetables, including tomatoes, asparagus and arugula. We use our own stuff and source from neighborhood organic farms for good beef and lamb.” Whether you seek a garden paradise or the classic feel of an elegant estate, the event-planning company provides clients that dream setting with options to host at Missouri Botanical Garden or Whittemore House. Those seeking a blank canvas to transform however they imagine will be drawn to places like the Forest Park Visitor Center. “Clients are involved as much or as little as they want. We have a fantastic team of coordinators that handle every aspect of the details of your event,” Erker says. “We make the itineraries. We arrange delivery schedules. We handle everything.”

Hearty Grain Bowls with Root Vegetables, Beans and Parsley Oil Story, recipe and photography by Sherrie Castellano
new year marks a time for rebirth and renewal. In January, inevitably, we seek to refresh our lives with the usual resolutions about healthy eating and more exercise. In that light, one of the most-asked questions I fielded as a former health coach was “How do I eat healthy without spending a ton of time in the kitchen?” My answer: grain bowls. Grain bowls make an awesome way to pack your plate full of nutrient-dense foods. They’re versatile and vibrant, and because ﬂavor combinations are so easy to mix and match, you could eat one each day for lunch and never tire of them. The best part of grain bowls is that they don’t require you to follow a strict recipe – you really only need to cook grains, roast vegetables and whip up a vibrant sauce or dressing. This hearty bowl incorporates sorghum, one of my favorite gluten-free grains. If you’ve never worked with sorghum before, it cooks like rice. You can ﬁnd sorghum at most grocery stores and in bulk sections at specialty food stores; brown rice or farro also work beautifully in this recipe. Roasted root vegetables and marinated beans, for a touch of plant-based protein, form the toppings, and parsley oil is drizzled on top for a boost of ﬂavor. I prefer to keep mine entirely vegan, which lends itself to a clean and detoxifying meal for this time of year.

Happily Ever After
Tristan, Isolde Ball Family and the
By Robyn Dexter
without a cat or dog. Their cat of 17 years had passed away in August, and coming home to a house without pets felt empty. Over the past 30 years, the Town and Country couple had adopted cats and dogs from rescue organizations, especially the Humane Society of Missouri. So, when they found themselves seeking a four-legged companion or two, the Humane Society was the first place they looked. When their children were home for Thanksgiving, the four of them went to look for a new pet. That’s when a 4-month-old kitten named Tristan caught their hearts. “He was just so cute, running around and playing,” Joan Ball says. “He was and is so sociable.” After they fell in love with Tristan, the Balls wanted him to have a friend, so they adopted Isolde the same day. “She’s just this tiny, sweet little thing,” Joan Ball says. At the time LN talked to Joan Ball, the family only had the kittens for about a week. “We’re getting used to having kittens again,” she says. “I forgot how much they get into everything.” She worried about having a house full of people for the holidays with such tiny new family members, but she says Tristan and Isolde were “so good.” “They wandered around and ended up in everyone’s laps. It was very cute,” she says.
Initially, the Balls tried to ban the kittens from a part of the house with a child gate. That plan failed almost immediately. “It took about three minutes for them to figure out how to climb up over it,” Joan Ball says. “Now they have free reign of the house.” Overall, Ball says the kittens just make her smile. They leap and play and curl up in her lap. She says she loves watching them chase after jingly ball toys. Both kitties love watching the birds in the bird feeders outside, especially the cardinals. “I have a fur collar now named Tristan,” she notes with a laugh. “He purrs at 6 a.m. to wake me up. They’re settling in just fine.” The Christmas decorations were a big hit with the kittens, and Joan Ball says she would regularly find the kittens in the boxes. She notes that they also love hiding in houseplants. “Hopefully they won’t eat my chives!” she jokes.

Waiting for a trial date in your divorce or family law matter St a n g e L a w F i r m , P C
A family law or divorce matter can end up being overwhelming and stressful for many. For those who are going through these cases, in many instances, they want finality as soon as possible. In addition to this finality, many want their desired result to happen. Getting a quick, desired result is certainly a worthy and understandable goal on the surface level. The reality is that not all individuals actually achieve the result that they want at the exact pace they want. This can cause many individuals to become frustrated, and this frustration can lead to a client becoming upset with their attorney. Many clients ask questions similar to: “Why is my case taking so long?” “Why can’t my attorney get this case settled?” “Why do I have to wait so long for a trial date to end
my case?” “Shouldn’t my case end quicker?” Ultimately, in many jurisdictions, there can be a lot of cases pending. For instance, take a large metropolitan area with a high population in the several hundred thousand range or above. Even with divorce rates and out-of-wedlock birth rates that can be high in certain areas, it is not uncommon in many places for there to be a limited number of judges who actually hear these cases. In addition to that, there are only 365 days in a year. Also, keep in mind that courthouses are closed on weekends and holidays. And, for most judges, if they are conducting a full trial, they may be only able to hear one case a day. In the end, this is going to result in many divorce and family law cases pending longer than a client may desire. For many individuals going through a divorce or family law matter, this can cause frustration.
They might think there is something else their attorney can do — when maybe that isn’t the case. In other words, if your best and final settlement offer has been sent, and the other side rejects it, what is there that can be done? You might be able to move further by sending another settlement offer. You might be able to ask if the other side will go to mediation. But what if that does not result in a settlement? In many of these cases, all one can do is simply wait for the trial date, which can take some time. If you are going through a divorce, Stange Law Firm, PC can help. We have lawyers available to help you rebuild your life. When you retain our firm, you will receive access to your case through Your Case Tracker in addition to receiving your lawyer’s personal cell phone number.

Knowing SCORE the
The St. Louis chapter of a nationwide nonprofit extant for five-plus decades helps small businesses to assess … well … everything. By Bryan A. Hollerbach
ven before the so-called Great Recession trounced the economy, grave uncertainty and even fear could cloud opening and operating small businesses, but SCORE strives to bring blue skies to such businesses. Gary Deeken chairs the St. Louis chapter of SCORE and expounds quite readily on it. Initially, Deeken explains the meaning of the nonprofit’s name, which only looks like an acronym. “SCORE is our brand name,” he says. “The organization was originally founded as the Service Corps of Retired Executives, but since many of our volunteer mentors are actively employed today in executive consulting, business leadership and other professional roles, this name is no longer relevant.” He also sketches the history of the nonprofit’s presence here. “The St. Louis SCORE chapter, one of the oldest in the United States, was started in 1964,” says Deeken. “SCORE was originally established under the Small Business Administration, but exists today as a separate stand-alone entity, serving today as a resource partner to the SBA.” The SBA itself had launched only 11 years earlier, in 1953, “largely as a response to the pressures of the Great Depression and World War II,” according to its website. Mention of that global conflict recurs on the website of another relevant organization, the National Bureau of Economic Research – which the Bureau of Labor Statistics calls “the official arbiter of U.S. recessions” and which dates the national economic crisis mentioned previously from December 2007 to June 2009, making
january 13, 2017 | LadueNews.com
it “the longest of any recession since World War II.” Even though that crisis lasted a mere 18 months and ended the better part of a decade ago, it still gives the willies to many businesspeople, which makes SCORE’s available expertise all the more valuable. Serving the local chapter, Deeken relates, are one part-time administrative staffer and 71 volunteer members. “The volunteers must have executive-level management experience and typically have worked in small, medium and large organizations that operate in the St. Louis area,” he says. “Our volunteer mentors have come from some of the major corporations in St. Louis, such as Monsanto, Boeing, Anheuser-Busch and AT&T, to name a few, or they have been business owners and CEOs in small to medium-size businesses in our area. We also have volunteer members who have specific expertise in such disciplines as accounting, legal, technology, marketing and social media.” Nationally, SCORE – which is headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, and lays claim to more than 300 chapters and 11,000 volunteer members – perforce sets strictures for the St. Louis chapter, which Deeken describes. “As a chapter of SCORE national, we operate under the rules, processes and established procedures spelled out in the SCORE Operating Manual,” he says. “All SCORE volunteers must complete code-of-ethics training and adhere to the organization’s ethical standards that include guidelines on confidentiality and professional conduct. Volunteers may not financially benefit as a result of their SCORE membership. “SCORE national provides its chapters access to a data management system that helps to train the volunteers, schedule meetings, provide performance feedback and maintain client and meeting records, just to name a few of the many functions it will do. “The SCORE national budget represents a very small line item in the federal budget, and some of those funds make their way to the individual chapters, helping to cover some operating expenses. We are budgeted to receive approximately $11,500 for [fiscal year 2017], which will only cover a portion of the costs associated with employing our part-time clerical staff person. The remainder of the funds required to operate the St. Louis chapter are provided by corporate sponsorships, grants and donations, member donations and workshop income. “We also receive in-kind support from the SBA, PNC Bank, St. Charles Economic Development Corp., Commerce Bank, E3 Consulting and Fontbonne University, who provide us with office and/or classroom space, at no cost, to meet with our clients and present workshops.” Deeken likewise relates telling metrics about the local chapter’s service. “SCORE volunteers help people who may have a business or product concept and want to discuss its viability, people who are in the process of starting a business and others who seek to grow their existing business,” he says. “[In fiscal 2016,] the St. Louis chapter helped 3,779 people who came from one of those groups. The year before, that number was 3,474. [In fiscal 2015,] we saw 44 percent of our clients more than once, and 40 percent of our clients were already in business.” That said, he balks at summarizing the average
SCORE assignment in St. Louis. “There is no average SCORE assignment,” says Deeken. “Every client is unique and special to us. There is, however, one standard axiom that we apply to each encounter through a process that all volunteers are annually trained to apply. It’s referred to by the acronym SLATE. “It stands for S – stop and suspend judgment; L – listen and learn; A – assess and analyze; T – test idea and teach with tools; E – expectation-setting and encouraging the dream. “SCORE national surveys clients after the first and fourth encounter to determine their level of satisfaction with their mentor and the process. Each member and chapter is measured on how they perform on these surveys.” Ethical considerations also prevent Deeken from sharing, even anecdotally, specifics about assignments to illustrate how SCORE’s making a difference for St. Louis companies. He does, however, tighten the focus somewhat. “Some of our mentoring sessions with clients in the startup or concept mode may involve helping them to develop a business plan and understanding all the factors involved in dealing with banks, the SBA, their industry and potential customers,” says Deeken. “Mentoring our clients who own their existing businesses typically entails issues such as profitability, sales and marketing, personnel management, strategic planning and succession planning, just to name a few.” He otherwise helpfully cites St. Louis-chapter success stories previously published elsewhere with client permission, hyperlinked on the chapter’s website. Certain of those success stories involved a SCORE subset called Business Scan, “provided to companies that are large enough and have a sufficient structure to benefit from the experience,” says Deeken. “The Business Scan process uses teams of Scanqualified SCORE mentors who are assigned to each Scan based on the needs of the client. Each Scan team reviews everything about their client companies, including financials, sales and marketing, operations, human resources, competition, and in many cases interviews members of the management team and key employees. “The purpose is to learn as much about the client’s business, market and industry as possible. The Scan team then prepares and presents a report that contains their findings and provides recommendations for how the client can improve and grow their business. “Oftentimes, one of the Scan team members will then maintain an ongoing mentoring relationship with the business owner, to help implement the recommendations.” Regarding long-term benefits enjoyed by companies seeking SCORE’s aid, Deeken alludes to heightened adaptability. “Whether it is with a startup client or an existing business owner, the challenges they face change and evolve,” he says. “Most have found it helpful to have a mentoring resource that may have faced similar challenges, to discuss their options and to get independent opinions on possible solutions.” To aid clients, he continues, SCORE relies on a corps of mentors, in whom it seeks specific qualities. “First and foremost, we look for people whose motivation is genuinely centered around helping their SCORE clients,” says Deeken. “Given the qualification requirements, we know that our members have the
necessary skills and experience, but they must also be willing to follow the processes and procedures established by SCORE, be able to communicate effectively and professionally, and be patient with people who may be facing a daunting challenge. “It takes a lot of courage to accept the risk involved with starting a business, expanding into new markets or dealing with certain personnel issues. It is necessary that we have empathy for our clients and understand both the business and emotional effects of starting or owning a business.” He also sketches how SCORE pairs mentors here with given small businesses. “One of the advantages of being a client of a large chapter is that we have mentors who have faced or have experience with many challenges faced by most businesses,” Deeken relates. “Though some mentors may be chosen by the clients according to their business profile and qualifications, others may connect because of availability or location. However the initial client/ mentor relationship is established, there is always the option of co-mentoring with another SCORE member who has expertise in a particular discipline.” Finally, given that SCORE operates a free service, Deeken addresses what rewards St. Louis SCORE staff members enjoy from serving local small businesses. “SCORE’s mission is to ‘foster vibrant small business communities through mentoring and education,’” he says. “The St. Louis community has been very

supportive in providing opportunities to our members as they grew in their business careers, and our members want to give back by providing the same opportunities to present and/or future business owners. “Additionally, though some may have retired from their respective careers, our member volunteers still have expertise and experience that are valuable and useful, and still seek the challenge to experience the personal rewards associated with being successful and purposeful. “We spent our whole lives working and striving to succeed in our careers. Being a SCORE mentor offers mentors an opportunity to maintain our skills and abilities, and share those with our clients based on a time commitment we chose, without the pressures involved with owning or running a business. “After all,” Deeken impishly concludes, “you can only play so much golf.” SCORE, 1222 Spruce St., Suite 10.103, St. Louis, 314-539-6602, stlouis.score.org LadueNews.com | january 13, 2017

FOCUS ON THE FACE AND FIGURE: Feature Story Washington University Physicians Facial Plastic sUrgery
By Robyn Dexter | Photo courtesy of Washington University Physicians
n January each year, the phrase “new year, new me,” is on many people’s minds. Helping people look their best in the new year are Dr. Gregory Branham and Dr. John Chi of Washington University Facial Plastic Surgery Center. At their office in Creve Coeur, the duo offers a variety of services focused on the head, neck and face. These include rhinoplasty, scar revision, brow lifts and eyelid surgery, along with nonsurgical procedures like Botox®, laser resurfacing, facial peels and lip augmentation.
“We offer both surgical and nonsurgical treatment options for aesthetic and reconstructive services,” Chi says. “We’re here to help you get your skin in shape.” Branham says winter is the best time of the year to take advantage of their services, since people’s schedules generally aren’t as busy and there’s not the worry of sun exposure. “It’s a great time for treatments that might have downtime associated with them,” he says. “Our laser resurfacing service—which smooths lines and wrinkles and evens discoloration from acne scars and sun-damaged
skin—requires only two to three days of downtime.” At Washington University Facial Plastic Surgery Center, the patient comes first. “It’s important to have a specific conversation with us about what you want to achieve and how much time you’re able to give to the process,” Branham says. “We offer services for all skin types and aging patterns and will guide you in the right direction.” To learn more about Washington University Facial Plastic Surgery Center, call 314-996-3880 or visit facialplasticsurgery.wustl.edu.

outh City recently welcomed a new restaurant that features Indian and Nepalese dishes, with a lunch buffet that’s bound to become popular. The restaurant in question, Himalayan Yeti, opened its doors in the stand-alone space previously occupied by 3J Sandwich and Noodle. The concept comes from family members Dipak and Prem Prasai, who worked on the culinary side of hotel management in their native Nepal before spending time as cooks for Carnival Cruise Line. After relocating to St. Louis five years ago following a stint in San Francisco, Dipak gained additional experience at Rasoi in the Central West End. At Himalayan Yeti, he takes the helm in the kitchen, while Prem manages the front of the house.
JANUARY 13, 2017 | LadueNews.com
“We’re making this food so people can get a taste of Nepal,” Prem says. “You can’t find it in other restaurants. At Himalayan Yeti, guests will find familiar Indian dishes alongside Himalayan specialties.” According to Prem, the primary flavor profiles and spices of northern Indian and Nepalese cuisine – among them key components like coriander, cumin and turmeric – are quite similar, but the cooking techniques vary, with freshly ground spices added at different intervals throughout the process, resulting in subtly different dishes. At Himalayan Yeti, guests can personalize any dish from the menu to their liking in either style with mild, medium or hot spices. During the day, dining’s casual, with the full bill of fare as well as the buffet available from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for $9.99 plus tax.
By Mabel Suen Staples on the buffet include chicken tikka masala, vegetable korma and saag paneer. Other dishes rotate daily and include everything from goat curry and vegetable pakora to biryani and noodles. In the evening, the room transforms into a finedining setting with full service. The restaurant seats around 60 guests, with spaces for 30 more available on the patio in warmer seasons. Choose from unique options such as the house signature appetizer: Himalayan momo, or a dumpling filled with ground chicken, minced onions, cilantro, garlic and spices, all served steamed or fried. From a list of tandoor-cooked offerings, choose from barbecued chicken, lamb, seafood and more. Various soups, salad and breads also are available, followed by entrées divided by central components:

seafood, chicken, lamb and vegetables. From the specials menu, choose from savory Nepalese dishes such as charcoal-roasted marinated meats and Himalayan thali, or platters, served with rice, dal, vegetable curry, saag, mula achar, gundruk achar, karela and papadum with your choice of chicken or goat. With such a wide selection, Himalayan Yeti makes the perfect stop before seeing All My Sons from The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. A full bar now in the works will feature standard bottled beers in addition to Himalayan wines, Indian beers such as Taj Mahal and Kingfisher, and more.

Story: Joe Keller has made a good life for himself. He lives with his wife, Kate, and son Chris in a nice home in the town where he owns and operates a factory. Just a few years earlier, the factory made airplane parts used by the American military for combat during World War II. Tragically, Joe and Kate’s oldest son, Larry, was reported missing in action during the war, when the plane he was flying disappeared. Although grateful that Chris returned from the war, Kate remains hopeful that Larry also will one day do the same – just as occasional stories in the newspaper indicate other combat veterans have done. This is a point of consternation for Chris, who’s fallen in love with Larry’s fiancée, Ann, who previously left town. He’s invited Ann back to propose to her, a plan involving many problems, including his mother’s insistence that Ann wait for Larry’s return. Ann and her family left town after her father, Steve, and Joe were tried for supplying defective parts, which led to the deaths of 21 pilots during WWII. Joe was exonerated, claiming he didn’t know about the bad parts, while Steve was convicted and sent to prison. Now Ann is scheduled to visit the Keller family at the same time that her attorney brother, George, has discovered shocking information from their father about Joe’s true involvement in the company’s decision to forward defective materials. Exactly what kind of homecoming will this be for Ann and the Kellers? Highlights: The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis continues its 50th-anniversary season with a richly satisfying production by one of America’s greatest playwrights, Arthur Miller. Miller’s beautifully written tragedy put him on the nation’s literary map in 1947, following the black-and-white wartime years with a litany of gray-hued questions that held up an oftenunflattering mirror to America’s victorious face. Other Info: The Rep often begins the calendar year with a drama after the confections of the holidays. In his program notes, artistic director Steven Woolf writes, “In our anniversary season, it was important to include a play by one of the most influential American playwrights of any generation.” Miller’s words remain relevant in the 21st century, posing tough questions about morality and ethics that present no easy answers. His drama was inspired by a newspaper article about a real aeronautical plant whose executives knowingly provided defective parts to the military that led to the deaths of American soldiers. The driving force of profits in capitalism, as well as the need for business owners to succeed and thrive whenever possible, catalyzed Miller’s unflinching look at the repercussions of such a philosophy. His words, though, go beyond the political and into the hearts and minds of everyday people, who often
By Mark Bretz
struggle to differentiate between right and wrong, actions and consequences. The current presentation by The Rep solidly conveys Miller’s probing thoughts under Seth Gordon’s careful and studied direction. While action in the play’s acts is confined to the patio and backyard of the Keller home, Gordon’s players utilize entrances from the sides and back to “stretch out” the play’s dimensions. Pacing is impeccable, as Gordon keeps a steady focus on the players and their rapt dialogue. Patrick Ball’s searing performance as Chris leads Gordon’s meticulously assembled cast. Ball embodies all of the frustrations and doubts of the younger generation in this Greek tragedy where the sins of the fathers have unknowable and relentless consequences. His portrayal moves capably between Chris’ euphoria in his love for Ann to his anguish about his family’s past. John Woodson expertly portrays the familiar Miller protagonist, the hardworking family man Joe, whose hidden villainy is revealed slowly and with well-presented complexity in Woodson’s wide-ranging performance. Margaret Daly ups the ante in her role as the long-suffering Kate, capped with a terribly poignant moan in the play’s climactic scene. Mairin Lee offers a rich interpretation of Ann, showing her full love for Chris as well as her determination to leave a sordid family past behind her. Zac Hoogendyk makes a powerful appearance as Ann’s angry brother George, who softens just a little in Kate’s sugary reunion with him before a few careless words turn everything upside down. All My Sons resonates as strongly today as it did when it propelled Miller to fame, fortune and controversy 70 years ago. It makes you think and wonder how you yourself fit into an imperfect world.

Firing Kids’ Imaginations
ith many cold weeks ahead, canny parents and caregivers should anticipate indoor time with children proclaiming boredom. Rather than turning to a TV or a tablet, make magic come alive with your child. Author/illustrator Nicola O’Byrne’s Use Your Imagination weaves bits of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale into a contemporary story to excite the imaginations of readers both young and old. Instead of impersonating a granny, though, the wolf pretends to be a librarian, promising to end the bunny’s boredom by helping him write a story. The wolf instructs the budding author, “There’s only one way to begin a story … Once Upon a Time!” The carnivorous canine subsequently tries to steer the developing story to an ending that will leave him feeling full, but finds things don’t always go as he’d like – the rabbit’s imagination leads to an out-of-this world banishment for the lupine librarian. O’Byrne’s illustrations pleasantly abound with white space atypical of picture books. Also, she shows main characters in soft, muted tones, but other creatures and settings in bright, bold hues. Finally, the text itself almost acts as a character, with different fonts creatively
used to match the story’s tone. The Three Billy Goats Gruff – credited to the publisher (Parragon Books) and illustrated by Gavin Scott – constitutes another favorite fairy tale. The story opens with the eponymous goat brothers munching grass on a hill, then setting their sights on a meadow across a bridge that is guarded by a terrible, green troll, whom the goats must outsmart. Scott’s illustrations should appeal to all ages. Each goat has its own unique appearance and personality, allowing storytellers to use different voices when reading aloud. Also, though the text describes a
By Sheila Oliveri frightfully gruesome creature, Scott’s troll looks more silly than scary, so even the youngest listeners oughtn’t be spooked. The refrain “Trip, trap, trip, trap” as the brothers cross the bridge should invite children to take part in telling the tale, and likewise, the troll’s booming “Who’s that tripping over my bridge?” should encourage them to envision themselves as the warty, hairy, stinky troll. The story resolves according to tradition, with a happy ending for the Billy Goats Gruff – and the troll’s fate left to the imagination. A live-action contemporary re-imagination of The Three Billy Goats Gruff will come during Ready Readers Winter Story Fest on Feb. 12 at Clayton High School. The original play forms part of Ready Readers’ 20thanniversary celebration.

Stick to your New Year’s resolutions without forgoing happy hour with these five low-calorie cocktails.

(I use a mango concentrate called El Sembrador, available at Jay International on South Grand Boulevard.) Serves | 1 | 2 1 6

ow that the holidays have come and gone and 2017 has dawned, many of us are buckling down and working on making our New Year’s resolutions reality. One of the most common promises we make to ourselves at this time of year is to eat and drink better. So this month, I’m presenting a few techniques for whipping up some healthier tipples, as cocktails are usually heavy on calories and light on nutrition. Very generally speaking, “hard” spirits have a calorie count of 60 to 70 calories per ounce. (Of course, this number will vary and can be higher depending on the spirit and the proof.) In contrast, wines tend to be 25 to 30 calories an ounce, so try using a vino as the base in your next cocktail. Keeping things as simple as possible – and always using real ingredients instead of commercial mixes – also will help keep the calorie count down. Many classic cocktails contain just a few ingredients – booze, sugar, citrus, bitters – and, as such, are comparatively low in calories. For example, a Sazerac has just 2 ounces of whiskey (about 120 to 150 calories) and half an ounce of simple syrup (25 calories or so). But of course, the best way to keep the calories at bay is to imbibe in moderation.

oz Oloroso sherry tsp granulated sugar orange slices, divided ice crushed ice (to serve)
Bloody Mary Another brunch go-to, bloody marys are naturally lower in calories as long as tipplers forgo crazy bacon garnishes. Also, avoid premade bloody mary mixes that typically jack up sodium content. I personally like to substitute gin for vodka, which is called a Red Snapper. Serves | 1 | 2 4 2 ¼
| Preparation | In a mixing glass, shake sherry, sugar and 3 orange slices with ice. Pour unstrained into a large rocks glass over crushed ice. Top with 2 orange slices, and serve.

| Preparation | Between 2 large mixing tins, roll all ingredients with ice until chilled. Pour into a Collins glass over ice. Garnish with whatever strikes your fancy; serve.
