from the

EDITOR THE LAST TWO YEARS, I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF ATTENDING the Saint Louis Club’s holiday buffet with my editorial team. It’s a time I’m truly grateful for because it allows US quality time to enjoy one another’s company, laugh and grow. It’s also a time to overindulge and try new things, while enjoying a spectacular view of the city. Although it’s hard to believe, the Saint Louis Club recently upped its ante by remodeling the club’s 14th floor to be a technology- and denim-friendly space with an all-day-café feeling. Make sure to read more about this renovation, as told by Ladue News copy editor and staff writer Bryan A. Hollerbach, starting on page 60. The Caesarstone Concetto bar top is certainly a beaut, remarkably matching the new aesthetic. Also within this week’s edition, make sure to explore LN fashion writer Katie Yeadon’s picks that will take you back to the Roaring ’20s. Not only are the pieces stunning, but also LN photographer Sarah Conroy certainly outdid herself with capturing the true essence of that time. We hope you enjoy this piece, starting on page 36. All the best,

Alecia Humphreys

Keeping Animals

A

crick ck in your neck caused by a bad night’s sleep. Or, a bone spur on the bottom of your foot from running too many miles. Humans can often pinpoint the sources of their pain, but what about pets? Although it’s impossible to translate Fido’s barks and Felix’s meows, the Humane Society of Missouri’s (HSMO) new Integrated Veterinary Pain Management Center offers hope to owners with pets in pain. Accredited by the American Animal Hospital Association, HSMO’s Animal Medical Center of Mid-America is a fullservice veterinary clinic and hospital open to the general public. AMCMA provides the highest level of veterinary care to pets across the area, with locations in Chesterfield Valley, Maryland Heights and St. Louis City. Opened in April 2017, the Center’s newest outpost in Maryland Heights replaces a much older and smaller nearby clinic. With six exam rooms plus on-site radiology, ultrasound, laboratory and pharmacy capabilities and 3 dental and surgical suites, the new facility provides vastly expanded veterinary care services. These services include a state-of-the-art Integrated Veterinary Pain Management Center, one of only a few such centers in the United States. “Over the last 10 to 15 years, sensitivity to pain in pets has become a more prominent issue,” says Dr. Kelly Ryan, AMCMA director. “Because of the nature of how pain comes about, there’s not always one approach that will work for each patient.” That’s why the Center offers a range of diagnostic technologies and treatment options for animals in pain. The first step for new patients is a consultation and pain assessment with the veterinarian. This appointment may involve the use of an infrared camera or the

Stance Analyzer, a machine that assesses the weight borne by each limb. Both of these technologies help veterinarians detect the location of an animal’s pain more precisely. After a treatment protocol is established, pets typically begin working with Jaime Bast, a registered veterinary technician and certified canine rehabilitation practitioner. Bast utilizes a range of therapies to alleviate pain and improve animals’ quality of life. An underwater treadmill allows pets to increase mobility without causing additional joint damage. A class IV laser isolates specific areas of the body, releasing endorphins to fight pain more naturally and less invasively. Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses a patient’s own blood cells to treat osteoarthritis. “Bast brings a wealth of knowledge about how to use these systems,” Ryan attests. The Center extends another level of pain management care to its patients with the addition of Dr. Susan Roecker, a doctor of chiropractic medicine. Whether physical therapy or chiropractic sessions are necessary, the Center strives to make the treatment process as convenient as possible for animals and their owners. “We even offer drop-off,” says Ryan. “You can drop off your pet before work, they can receive therapy, and then you can pick them up after they’re finished.” “Some people think that if your animal is in pain, there’s nothing you can do,” says Ryan. “That’s absolutely not true anymore. We’ve come a long way. If your pet is having ailments, it’s no longer a matter of waiting. There’s a lot we can do to help keep them happy.” The Animal Medical Center of Mid-America’s Integrated Veterinary Pain Management Center, 11660 Administration Dr., Maryland Heights, 314-951-1534, amcma.org/locations/maryland-heights

verything was the bee’s knees as PALM Heath hosted a gala for the Anthropedia Foundation wherein guests wore their best Roaring ’20s attire. Serenaded by carolers as they arrived, attendees enjoyed excellent food and drink, and the music played late into the night. Guests also bid on silent auction items, as well as unique raffle items. The event benefited the foundation, an educational organization that teaches individuals, professionals and nonprofits ways to cultivate mental health and well-being to decrease lifestyle and stress-related illness.

The 200 guests at this cocktail party for the Friends of the Kathy J. Weinman Shelter for Domestic Violence experienced an evening of fun and lively conversation, with a surprise red carpet photo opportunity with a Clydesdale. The 39-bed shelter, professionally managed and operated 24/7 by St. Louis County, ranks as the only domestic violence shelter in the county. The friends organization seeks to raise awareness of and support for the shelter, which has been providing help and hope since 1992 for women and children seeking lives free of violence and fear. The friends organization’s help provides funding that the county’s revenue funds and grants can’t fill. Julie and Dan Miller

Planning Your Spring Garden

By Pat Raven, Ph.D., with Julie Hess

W

hile winter continues to maintain its frigid grip, it’s always fun to scour the newest seed catalogs and begin planning your spring garden. Since my three new vegetable terraces weren’t finished in time for a complete spring planting last year, I’m eager to get an early start. With a blank slate before me, the possibilities seem endless. Some items, of course, are nonnegotiable: Chinese rhubarb, French sorrel and purple Italian asparagus. As long-lived perennials, they’ll be planted and left undisturbed for years in the steep upper terrace. Edging this bed will be herbs and spillables to drape down the stone wall, including all the classics: rosemary, basil, thyme, sage, savory and nasturtiums. Sound like your grandmother’s garden so far? This is where the similarities stop. Thinking about why I grow a vegetable garden informs my entire planting plan. Mine is not a canning and freezing garden, but rather a cook’s garden being designed for fresh seasonal vegetables selected for beauty, flavor and novelty. My time and space are precious. Why grow potatoes when I can find them in any market? Yes, tomatoes do make the cut, but even then, my space is filled with treasures I can’t buy, like ‘Black Beauty’ and ‘Berkeley Tie-dye Green.’ The middle terrace, waist-high from below, is the perfect place for a salad garden of small row crops and greens. It will be filled with a colorful, high-lycopene mix of ‘Atomic Red’ and ‘Cosmic Purple’ carrots, candy-striped ‘Chioggia’ and rich yellow ‘Touch Stone Gold’ beets, purple-stemmed Japanese mizuna and rattail Indian radishes. There’s nothing more perfect than a pod full of just-off-the vine English peas. In China, pea shoots and tendrils make delicious stir-fried dishes. This year, my vines will do double duty as both pod peas and tendril peas. ‘Sugar Magnolia’ is a new variety that offers both extra-tender, sweet tendrils and pretty, purple-podded peas. The lower level will be cucumbers (Melothria scabra, the Mexican sour gherkin) and squash (‘Dirani Lebanese’ compact summer squash), bordered by peppers. Sweet and hot peppers need to be widely spaced, or they’ll cross-pollinate and give you a shocking surprise, so I grow only the hot ones. My

‘Touch Stone Gold’ beets

‘Atomic Red’ carrots

‘Bhut Jolokia’ ghost peppers

Pea tendrils

favorite fabulous “mild” hot pepper is Japanese ‘Shishito,’ best sautéed in olive oil and sea salt. Or knock your socks off with ‘Bhut Jolokia,’ the ghost pepper from the northeastern Indian state of

Assam, one of the hottest out there, at over 1 million Scoville heat units – 500 times hotter than Tabasco sauce! Just for fun, David Jones at Bowood Garden and Home suggested trying

strawberry spinach (Chenopodium capitatum) as a heat-tolerant leafy green with fun red berrylike fruits. Or perhaps amaranth as a stunning summer spinach? ‘Tri-color’ variegated and ‘Hopi Red Dye’ are two colorful varieties. Interesting seed vendors to look for are Botanical Interests, Seed Savers Exchange, Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds and Johnny’s Seeds. The Garden Gate Shop at the Missouri Botanical Garden has a great seed selection if you just want to browse. But do look for something fresh and new – not just your grandmother’s classics, but something that will delight your eye, tease your nose and satisfy your palate. Skip the ordinary and go for the exceptional!

BUY A BARGAIN,

BUILD A HOUSE By Robyn Dexter | Photos by Sarah Conroy

Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore sells gently used furniture, home décor and more to help support its mission of building homes, community and hope.


F

or decades, St. Louisans have had an incredibly resourceful place to both donate and purchase building and remodeling supplies, along with home décor. Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis’ ReStore has two locations in the metro area, both well-stocked with products that help generate funds to support its own mission to build houses. The first ReStore opened in St. Louis proper in the summer of 1997 and quickly outgrew its space. Five years later, the store reopened at 3763 Forest Park Ave., where it’s been operating since. Another location, behind a Sam’s Club off Manchester Road in Des Peres, opened in 2013. This location measures 48,000 square feet and houses building materials – from doors to cabinets to lamps to couches. ReStore general manager Josh Vaughn says ReStore accepts “anything you could find in a big-box home improvement store,” plus new and gently used furniture and home décor. “We then resell the products to the public and use the funds we generate to help build Habitat for Humanity homes in St. Louis city and county,” he says of the nonprofit organization that builds and provides safe and affordable houses in communities across the nation. In addition to accepting and selling these products, ReStore offers a deconstruction service for homeowners or businesses planning a large-scale remodel or demolition. A team of ReStore employees will come and carefully uninstall things the owner is having replaced, like kitchen cabinets, countertops and light fixtures. “We’ll pick them up the same day [we uninstall them], and you’ll have a donation receipt within 48 hours,” Vaughn says. He calls the deconstruction service a “win-win-win” because clients can have a space like a kitchen taken apart without generating waste or associated contractor fees, plus receive a tax write-off for the donation. Individuals may choose to make a monetary donation to Habitat, but there is no mandatory fee to perform a deconstruction. “It’s popular because it’s such a deal,” he says. “We do one project per week and are usually scheduled four to six weeks out.” Vaughn has been with ReStore since 2009 and has seen exponential growth since then. From 2013 to 2017, it has grossed more than $1 million, and the business continues to grow. The Des Peres location has been hugely successful, raking in about four times the amount of donation drop-offs as the St. Louis location. Vaughn attributes the success of the Des Peres operation to being near a customer and donor base – something its St. Louis sibling has been lacking in recent years in the largely commercial zone where it’s located. For that reason, the Forest Park ReStore will be relocating to 3830 S. Grand Blvd. in late April. The new site will offer 25,000 square feet in a vibrant community that is buzzing with excitement about ReStore’s arrival. Vaughn says the South Grand neighborhood has been “awesome” and has even offered to put up yard signs welcoming the business to the area. A typical day at the ReStore is anything but

typical, Vaughn says. Since the store’s inventory changes each day, there’s no knowing what will be dropped off or sold. It’s developed a loyal customer base whose members want to see what will show up at ReStore every day. When the store opens at 10 a.m., Vaughn says there’s usually half a dozen people waiting to get in, along with a few people waiting to drop off donations. Throughout a “typical” day at the ReStore, trucks come and go from the facility, dropping off new items and going to pick up donations. “We do between 150 and 200 [donation] pickups per month, and that’s reserved for larger donations like cabinets,” Vaughn says. Because kitchens are a popular remodeling project for homeowners, the ReStore typically has a steady supply of cabinets, which make up a huge part of ReStore’s donations and profits. Vaughn says the facility’s staffers price their gently used cabinetry at half of what other brick-and-mortar home improvement stores would. “It’s a great deal, because cabinetry can get expensive,” he says. Funds from efforts like the ReStore are crucial to the continued success of Habitat, and Vaughn says he’s looking forward to how the new location and continued growth of the Des Peres facility can contribute to Habitat’s progress. The organization will be building its 400th home this year – a huge milestone for the group and for the St. Louis community. “If you want to help build a Habitat home without swinging a hammer, come check us out and shop the ReStore,” Vaughn says. “You never know what you’re going to find, but it’s always going to be a great deal when you find it.” Habitat for Humanity Saint Louis ReStore, 2117 Sam’s Drive, Des Peres; 3830 S. Grand Blvd., St. Louis (opening in April), 314-678-4596, habitatstl.org

Styling Unwashed Hair

H

it that seductive snooze button a bit too often? Not enough time to shower before greeting the morning? Well, if you find yourself suddenly overclocked – and a day or two has passed since suds have graced your hair – fear not: there are options! On the bright side, unwashed hair has extra grit and texture, allowing you the possibility of rocking fun hairstyles you wouldn’t necessarily wear daily. Also, consider dry shampoo your new best friend; applying it to the oily parts of your locks will absorb oil and make your hair look fresh and clean. Otherwise, consider these four options for styling unwashed tresses:

The side braid. The side braid should perfectly suit women with long hair. Plus, it all but rejects perfection – braids are meant to be a little messy, loose and undone. This style also looks great with hair already somewhat curly or slightly wavy, adding both depth and texture. The low bun. This style could become a go-to for many women. Use your hair’s excess oil to your advantage, pulling your tresses into a sleek, low bun – either twisting them into a tight ballerina swirl or tousling them for a marginally messy look. The high pony. Just like the low bun, the high pony benefits from unwashed tresses. If flyaway hairs bedevil you, though, just spray the bothersome area to keep those hairs in place. The hat. If all else fails, resort to a stylish chapeau of some sort! Whether a St. Louis Cardinals baseball cap or a cute favorite cloche, a hat always does the trick. With luck, ladies, the preceding suggestions will help you with unwashed hair when next you’re racing time – and will keep you from flipping your wig!

MARSH

on Marsh has just signed off for the day from his talk show at the local NPR station, St. Louis Public Radio KWMU. As we talk, I notice an old brick building hulking in the distance from the station’s third-floor studio in Grand Center. Inquiring whether Marsh knows what the building was, he responds with uncertainty, and I note that it was probably a relic of the city. “Just like me,” he answers with a laugh. Although Marsh doesn’t mind being thought of as a relic, I would argue the reference. Marsh is known as the dean of St. Louis broadcasters and an elder statesman of Gateway City airwaves. He, in my opinion, is this town’s earliest connection to a more trusted age of media, who earned his stripes decades before “fake news” entered the lexicon. Marsh was a correspondent with the Armed Forces Radio Service in Germany before breaking into the St. Louis news scene in 1971. As a result, Marsh retains an old-school way of doing things. This July, Marsh will turn 80, but he is still one of the most trusted voices in St. Louis. “It’s very fulfilling,” Marsh says. “It’s about bringing relevant, important and interesting information to the community, and that’s what’s fulfilling about it. … I don’t think of it in the way you’re kindly portraying it. It’s a service.” In the ’90s, Marsh lost his spot on the Channel 2 anchor desk not long after KTVI hired Dick Ford. Marsh believed his “advanced” age, 56 at the time, might have been one of the reasons he lost his job, but it would seem Marsh got the last laugh. “They said I quit, but I maintained that I was fired,” Marsh says. “I had a lot of severance coming, and we took it to an arbitrator. I won and it was a six-figure settlement. That gave me all the laughs I needed right there.” Despite his “old age,” there were still many more years to come. Marsh worked in the KMOX and ABC 30 newsrooms, where he had little tolerance for inaccuracy and set the standard for credibility. For the last 12 years, he’s been at KWMU as the host of the program St. Louis on the Air. In this new news era of never really being sure of what’s fake and what’s real, it’s good to know there are still journalists out there like Marsh. However, he says we can’t always rely on gatekeepers any more, especially on the cable news networks, where the lines between editorial commentary and objective news reporting have been dramatically blurred. He believes it’s up to us to learn a lot more media literacy. “That’s objectivity in terms of just being sure that what you’re dealing with is right and learning how to corroborate information,” Marsh says. “That’s what people should be doing as individuals, but people are too busy watching movies on their phones. People have to take some responsibility, and I – or people like me – can’t make them understand. I can just put it out there and hope they do.” As far as the future of news goes, Marsh says he can only guess, but knows it will keep evolving. “We were talking on the air today: Is Facebook even going to exist five years from now?” Marsh says. “They’re losing the young audience, and it doesn’t take long for them to find something else. Do you remember MySpace?” One of the most difficult things Marsh does (along with a lot of us old-timers in the business) is try to give advice to young people who want to go into journalism. “I tell them they should be prepared to know how to write,” Marsh says. “They should have a complete familiarity with the digital world because it’s all over the news business. You should read a lot, pick some subjects you are familiar with that could

He says he’d rather go out “with his boots on.” These days, we need all the news relics we can get.

Hyken’s HOMEWORK

Technology and Teen Tracking

I

wasn’t always honest with my parents during my adolescence. For the most part, I was a responsible teen, but I would “forget” to call my parents occasionally when plans changed. And a few times, I may have slipped out of the house to attend a schoolnight concert or to meet friends. During my formative years, it was easy to “sneak” around town. For today’s teens, however, hiding one’s location poses a much bigger challenge. Almost every child carries a smartphone, often pre-loaded with GPS services like Find My iPhone, that let parents see where their kids are spending time. In addition, many families choose to download monitoring apps like Life360 or TeenSafe so parents can more efficiently track their teens’ behavior and cellphone use. With such easy access to safety technology, many of my clients often ask if they should “track their teen.” I believe all parents should do whatever they need to do to ensure family safety. However, a big difference separates monitoring your children’s activities and spying on their whereabouts – which makes it important to have an appropriate conversation about

how, why and when a smartphone GPS will be used. Start the discussion by letting your children know there’s a tracking device on each of their phones. Covertly installing a monitoring program is dishonest and sends a message of distrust. Eventually, a tech-savvy teen will find the hidden app. It’s better to have a collaborative conversation now instead of a heated discussion later. Most kids will understand the primary reason mom and dad want the tracking app: to reduce their own parental worries. The ability to electronically locate your child comforts considerably. Make sure, though, that your kids know they still must tell you where they’re going and when plans change. Modern technology in no way replaces direct communication and considerate behavior. As another huge benefit of GPS apps, they might actually make mom and dad a bit less bothersome. Tracking a teen’s location intrudes far less on him or her than an untimely text during a social outing, and it’s also much safer than answering a parental phone call while driving home. If your kids are where they say,

By Dr. Russell Hyken

they shouldn’t mind you checking on where they are. The biggest problem most teenagers have with tracking technology occurs when parents overuse the app. Just because mom and dad can see where their children are doesn’t mean they should constantly ask questions like “Why did you stop here?” or “Why did you go there?” Such pestering creates a distrusting home environment that also stifles a child’s independence. The best way to ensure your child makes good decisions involves staying connected with face-to-face conversations. Feel free to check the app, but don’t micromanage your teen by asking too many questions. Technology can never replace parenting, but a phone locator can make life a little less stressful.

TEST DRIVE: 2018 Ford Mustang GT

THE WORLD’S BEST-SELLING SPORTS CAR GETS MORE EDGE AND REFINEMENT IN A MIDCYCLE REFRESH.

T

he Ford Mustang isn’t just a car; it’s a bacon cheeseburger, the Grand Canyon, the New York Yankees. No, the Mustang isn’t just a hunk of metal and plastic; it’s an icon that defines Americana in pop culture, movies and daily life. And just as if the Yankees decided to roll out all-new fuchsia uniforms, so too is the entire automotive press talking about the 2018 midcycle refresh for the Mustang. Touting a long list of performance and refinement improvements, this new Mustang deserves all the buzz. Surprisingly though, it’s not Ford leading the direction of evolution. When Chevrolet released the truly all-new Camaro in 2010, it might not have realized it, but it spelled the end of the traditional muscle car. Until then, the thinking was that ditching the antiquated live-axle rear suspension for a more modern independent setup would compromise straight-line performance. But when the zeta-architecture Camaro proved dominance over

48

FEBRUARY 16, 2018 | LadueNews.com

the Flintstones-esque Mustang of the time, Ford had no option but to respond. And in 2015, respond it did, with the internally code-named S-550 Mustang: a truly all-new car, for the first time designed around an independent suspension from the ground up. For that year, momentum swung back in the Mustang’s direction. The change was short-lived, however, because in 2016 Chevy released another new Camaro based on the alpha-architecture. This was the car I drove in April 2016, when I was gobsmacked by its legit sports car chops – gone was any last figment of muscle car feel. Again, Ford was playing catch-up. With the release of the GT350, Ford again proved it wants not just to play but to compete for the crown. The pony car wars had taken a new direction, one that bodes well for buyers of any performance car. Now, Ford and Chevy weren’t just competing with themselves; shots were being fired into Europe, as well, with potential BMW, Mercedes and Porsche buyers having to justify their purchases against

cars just as fast – or faster – at half the price. That last point cannot be understated. Both Ford and Chevy have upped their game in a way that 20 years ago I would have never thought possible. As they have evolved together, along similar lines, the natural inclination to pit them against each other remains. This refreshed 2018 Mustang GT is the latest in that line. Being unmistakably American, the car first poses the question of what’s under the hood, and there are a host of changes. Still a 5.0, the new Coyote powerplant raises displacement from 4,970 cubic centimeters to 5,030 cubic centimeters by replacing the former cylinder liners with a spray-in coating and a machining process derived from the supercar Ford GT. All-new cylinder heads employ both port and direct injection, and the compression ratio is raised from 11:1 to 12:1. That’s a short summary of changes, resulting in horsepower raised from 420 to 460, and torque gets a bump to 420 foot-pounds. All of this is good for 0-to-60 sprints in the low 4-second range and


¼-mile blasts around 12.5 seconds – with many reports of high 11s – which is borderline supercar fast. But maybe the biggest difference is in the redline, raised from 7,000 rpm to 7,500. On paper, this might not sound like much, but under full-throttle tip-in, this new engine begs to see the rev-limiter after each and every stoplight. The LS-series motors in Camaros and Corvettes are also both spectacular in their way, but I’m going to put myself out there and say neither has the soul of this Ford Coyote motor. It’s like a little devil on both shoulders: Absent is the voice to take it easy, and all I hear is begging for more. Revs come freely and with much reward, and heard through Ford’s Active Exhaust System, the sound is a glorious improvement. This isn’t just a great motor; it’s a great motor that makes you re-evaluate other great motors. Looking back, many of the great twin-turbo V-6s I’ve experienced seem dull in comparison. In what’s one of the great ironies of the automotive world, the big American V-8 has advanced to the point where it’s now the unique and compelling alternative. Like the barrel-of-monkeys fun of the Jaguar F-Type’s exhaust note, it would be easy to spend all my time talking about the GT’s motor, but that would make light of the other notable changes. For instance, Ford says a whopping 60 percent of all GT buyers opt for the manual transmission. For these folks, there’s an all-new six-speed dual-clutch transmission with a variable-mass flywheel. Although I didn’t get to drive that option, I certainly will in the future. Instead, Sunset Ford provided me with

the also-new 10-speed automatic. (Yes, you read that right: 10 speeds.) This was a transmission co-developed by Ford and GM – turns out cats and dogs can live together. And apparently it’s versatile: It can be found in the Raptor supertruck, the 650-horsepower Camaro ZL1 and the Mustang GT. Driving with a 10-speed is an unusual experience. It can row through gears without any tactile sensation, with only a slight change in exhaust tone to tip off the driver. Look down at 30 mph, see the indicator read sixth gear and wonder, “How did I get into sixth that fast?” And when in sport or track modes, it displays a telepathic sense of knowing what gear is needed. In all, it’s a very good show from an automatic transmission, but it’s not perfect. Manual gear selection through the column paddles does have enough lag to be irritating at times, and downshifts during aggressive back-road carving can upset the car’s balance enough to spike your heart rate. With a bit better programming, this transmission could be perfect, but as is, I’d opt for the manual even knowing I’d lose a tenth or two in my 0-to-60 sprints. Typically, I spend much of my word count discussing how a car feels when being hustled through twisty back roads. This time, though, I’m not doing that. Although the car I drove was very capable, it did display some lessthan-admirable traits when approaching the limits. But there wasn’t a loaner available that was optioned with the Performance Pack or Magnetic Ride shock package, both of which are options a driver such as myself would check the box for if purchasing. Both options would go a long

way toward alleviating the shortcomings I experienced. My GT loaner was optioned in a semi-aggressive way, but one mainly about-town drivers might choose. And in about-town driving, it was seriously sublime. The Premier Package seats are supple and supportive, and ride comfort was high enough that I was tempted to take off for Gulf Shores, Alabama. I imagine Ford will sell mountains of Mustangs optioned just this way. So while readers will have to wait before I draw a conclusion about which is the ultimate performance king, the Camaro SS or the Mustang GT, one thing I can tell you is it’s easy to see why Mustang sales far outpace those of its crosstown rival. It’s much more livable on a daily basis, primarily because of the coffinlike seating position and visibility from the Camaro. Either offers myriad performance and luxury options, but it’s that fundamental design flaw that has almost certainly moved many buyers to the Ford camp. That said, the new Mustang GT is quite an achievement and stands the test of almost any cross-shopping comparison. In some ways, it’s made me rethink what I want in my next car. And I’m already salivating at the opportunity to test a six-speed and Performance Pack- or Magnetic Ride-optioned car in the future.

SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES: Feature Story

Summertime ADVENTURES SUMMERQUEST

By Amanda Dahl | Photos courtesy of SummerQuest

I

t’s all in the name: SummerQuest. When the last bell rings, announcing the end of school, children can taste the freedom that their favorite season brings. Their quest this summer? Endless fun. Parents’ quest this summer? Something to keep the kids busy, safe and interested in learning. Enter SummerQuest, the day camp that elevates summertime for all. “We hope to provide each and every family with St. Louis’ premier day camp experience,” Doug Verby, the director at SummerQuest, says. “That includes learning new information and skills, but most of all, having fun every day through interactions with campers, counselors and teachers.” So, how does SummerQuest set out to do this? It creates a diverse schedule of activities for different age groups that inspires children and

The Gaslight Theater in St. Louis’ Central West End neighborhood shows BLACKBIRD, a play about 56-year-old Ray and his new life after prison. The show never shies away from the brutal truth of Ray’s abandoned and unconventional love. Tucked away on North Boyle, the theater houses St. Louis Actors’ Studio, which is presenting this drama, and often hosts live music and comedy. The theater’s 1950s namesake, the storied Gaslight Square, was known for its gaslights and ornate Victorian architecture and quickly became a thriving entertainment district, attracting such Beat luminaries as Jack Kerouac (who wrote the 1957 novel On the Road) and Alan Ginsberg (who wrote the 1954-55 poem “Howl”). Days, times and ticket prices vary. stlas.org.

ot diggity dog! Since late November, Cherokee Street in St. Louis’ Gravois Park neighborhood has had a new place to chow down. Frankly on Cherokee (an outgrowth of a food truck) features its namesake handmade sausages and signature hand-cut fries alongside such new offerings as shareable plates, desserts and, soon, bottled cocktails. “During our busy seasons, we were going through 500 pounds of brats and 600 pounds of fries in a week,” says Jamie Cawthon, who co-owns the restaurant with her husband, Bill. “The volume was too big to do out of a small kitchen. It was always part of our vision for the food truck to become a restaurant.” Her husband previously cheffed at Pastaria, Cardwell’s and the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills before rolling out the Frankly Sausages food truck with Cawthon in early 2016. The new brick-and-mortar

restaurant will serve as the commissary for the food truck, with Kevin Himmelberg as sous chef and Michelle Hedman as pastry chef. Frankly on Cherokee fills the 1,200 square feet previously occupied by Calypso Cafe, with approximately 38 seats for guests. The interior features a warm industrial feel, with custom-welded wooden tables and hanging Edison bulbs. Behind the counter, guests can glimpse the kitchen, where artisan sausages are stuffed by hand. “The whole philosophy behind our food is very simple and straightforward,” Cawthon says. “By the same token, we like the name ‘Frankly,’ meaning ‘honest and direct,’ because what you see is what you get. You can watch Bill process whole animals on the table while you’re ordering.” From the menu, guests can choose from favorites like a chicken sausage topped with roasted butternut

squash and caramelized leeks, as well as a chili verde sausage with avocado, queso fresco and lime. Exotic offerings include lamb with grilled red onion, feta and oregano, as well as wild boar with pickled red onion and roasted apple. All sausages are served on hoagie baguettes from Creve Coeur’s La Bonne Bouchée, with meat sourced from purveyors including California, Missouri’s Buttonwood Farm and De Soto’s Such and Such Farm. “Shareables” include a chicken liver crostino with balsamic onions and chives, and new items include a fried chicken sandwich with cucumber, apple, romaine and buttermilk dressing. For dessert, guests can choose from such selections as brown sugar-bourbon apple pie and maple-pecan cheesecake. On Friday and Saturday evenings, handcut fries with hot imported raclette – a food-truck favorite – are also offered.

Once it gains its liquor license, Frankly on Cherokee will offer a beverage program featuring four local taps as well as a selection of five to six different bottled cocktails created by bartender Phil Haltom. Options will include a Manhattan, a carbonated Negroni and a bubbly gin and tonic. Whether a visitor’s ready to feast or simply to enjoy a cocktail, all of the preceding offerings sound like wonderful options before catching Silent Sky from the West End Players Guild. “We’re just excited to be able to invite people inside,” Cawthon says. “At our food truck, it’s fun sending people away with something delicious. Here, we get to have them in the house to enjoy a meal with us.”

Story: In 1893, Henrietta Swan Leavitt fulfills a long-held dream when she accepts a position with Cambridge, Massachusetts’ Harvard College Observatory. Instead of working with a telescope, however, Leavitt becomes one of the university’s female human “computers,” examining photographic plates to catalog stars observed in the sky. Leavitt previously earned a degree from Cambridge’s Radcliffe College, where she developed a passion for astronomy. As a woman, however, she’s relegated at Harvard to a position in “Pickering’s harem,” a cluster of women including Annie Cannon and Williamina Fleming who work for astronomer and physicist Edward Charles Pickering. They report to Pickering’s intermediary, Peter Shaw. While dutifully handling her responsibilities, Leavitt makes it known to Shaw that she fully expects to work directly with Harvard’s telescope. Eventually impressed with her achievements, Pickering allows Leavitt to pursue her own research at her desk after hours. Leavitt intermittently receives messages from her sister, Margaret, back home in Wisconsin, informing her about the work of their minister father and also her own married life, husband and children. The sisters keep in touch through the years, during which time Leavitt shares a charming if slow courtship with the shy Shaw, who’s awed by her abilities. Inspired by her sister’s musical talents, Leavitt eventually strikes upon a theory that leads to an understanding about the relationship between the relative brightness of stars in images of the Magellanic Clouds (two irregular galaxies, the closest to our own Milky Way) and the periods of stars called Cepheid variables. Her research leads to a fundamental shift in the understanding of astronomy, paving the way for later accomplishments by Missouri’s own Edwin Hubble (namesake of the Hubble Space Telescope, launched into orbit in 1990) and others to this day. Highlights: The soaring achievements as a scientific pioneer of Leavitt, in the face of sexism and other formidable obstacles, receive inspirational adaptation by playwright Lauren Gunderson. The writer’s wonderful two-act drama is elegantly performed by a disciplined and motivated West End Players Guild ensemble under Ellie Schwetye’s dazzling direction. Other Info: The production’s scenic design ratchets up the show’s atmosphere with a floor covered in a celestial rendering, as well as a sumptuous video design by Ben Lewis that complements that with the illusion of the vast, star-studded sky. Prior to the show itself, the video screen is filled with vintage photos of the actual Levitt and other “human computers” at Harvard. Schwetye provides a stirring sound design filled with otherworldly musical motifs that heighten the effect, as do the antique desks where the poorly

By Mark Bretz

nicknamed “harem” worked. Schwetye shrewdly uses the performance space on the floor below the stage, with Leavitt’s Wisconsin home at stage right, and the observatory at center and stage left. She choreographs her players in an almost balletic fashion to accentuate the elegance in their work. Rachel Tibbetts fills Leavitt with a deep and abiding quest for knowledge. As she tells Shaw early in their introduction, “Passion is a dedicated desire unmatched by reason,” pointing out the difference in their approaches to their work. The Wikipedia biography of Levitt describes her as “selflessly devoted to her family, her church and her career,” which Tibbetts charmingly conveys in her dialogue with the other characters. Michelle Hand brings a nifty Scottish accent and fierce pride to the role of the determined Fleming, the one-time servant for Pickering who adapted resolutely to her position as one of the women assigned to chart the skies for their male bosses, enabling the latter to accept all the glory for any resultant conclusions. She also shows in humorous fashion Fleming’s sharp-eyed observations of the developing romance between Leavitt and Shaw. Jamie Pitt convincingly depicts the awkward rigidity of the single-focused Cannon, a woman perceptively termed “Dickensian” by Shaw for her eccentric personality and no-nonsense approach to her work. As Leavitt’s sister, Colleen Backer does well showing the complexities of a woman devoted to her family but also talented enough musically to compose a symphony. Silent Sky is an immensely satisfying drama from both scientific and emotional perspectives. Under Schwetye’s insightful direction, her superbly chosen cast gives us a glimpse into one woman’s triumph over prejudice to achieve everlasting recognition for brilliance.

he superlative, by definition, recognizes no superior – one doesn’t better the best. Yet as recent events at Clayton’s distingué Saint Louis Club illustrate, remaining the acme in the hospitality industry demands perpetual fresh expressions of excellence. The 53-year-old club – which occupies the top three floors of the Pierre Laclede Center, an aerie an eagle would envy for its views of mid-St. Louis County and beyond – recently recognized that demand by concluding a sweeping multistage renovation. The latest stage involved much of the club’s 14th floor, its lowermost. “Our renovation adds what you might call the next generation of the private city club experience,” says Kelly Standing, the club’s director of innovation and communications. “We aimed for ‘approachable elegance’ with the $1.8 million investment in our 14th floor – a technology-friendly, denim-friendly, flexible space with an all-day-café feeling from 7 a.m. to midnight.” Many years ago, Standing explains, board members anticipated that the club would inevitably require updates and innovations over time, so they added a modest $10 to $25 per month capital charge to hold in reserve for those necessary renovations. The 14th-floor renovation took place using that reserve and imposed no special Renovating the Saint Louis Club. assessment on club members, lasting a mere 107 days and culminating just two days before this past Thanksgiving. Lee Murray, a former president of the club, chaired the committee that planned the renovation. Once it began, Webster Groves’ Architextures (led by owner Christi Johaningmeyer) and Brentwood’s Musick Construction (led by senior project manager Ron Gallagher) teamed to realize the renovation. The final effort involved 9,500 square feet of that lowermost floor of the club, whose three-floor area


totals roughly 45,000 square feet. At the macro level, it: l Replaced the club’s small, formal Frenchinflected bar with a larger, casual bar and lounge incorporating tech upgrades like USB ports. l Altogether overhauled two small private rooms, replacing their solid walls and a dark corridor with glass. l Updated three larger private chambers (the St. Vrain, Founders and Louisiana rooms) that can accommodate up to 72 people for live entertainment, tastings of all types and other events. l Expanded the stunning views available from the 14th floor by removing heavy drapery and outdated woodwork that concealed nine east-facing windows. Also, the palette of the bar and lounge underwent major alteration, Standing notes, from butter yellow to a très chic blend of light gray, dark gray and silver. Simultaneously, the construction team laid wooden flooring in black-and-white zigzags, and several exacting souls papered the ceiling in a print resembling small brushed-silver tiles. New appointments replaced old, meanwhile, and perhaps the most striking alteration involved the physical bar, now surfaced with a handmade material called Caesarstone Concetto in gray agate and underlit with rheostat-controlled light-emitting diode panels contoured to the bar’s top. Otherwise on the 14th floor, The Back Door dining area – which adjoins the bar and lounge, with club management offices and the three larger private chambers mentioned previously – was updated six years ago as part of a 10-year plan to renovate the entire club, and at press time, it and that trio of rooms all were being renamed in a club contest. Current members of the club praise its latest renovation without reservation. “For me, my first impression of the lounge on the 14th floor was ‘welcoming’ – a lounge where I could bring business guests or social guests to enjoy one of the best cups of coffee with one of the best views in Clayton,” says Maurice E. Quiroga, senior vice president and senior fiduciary advisory specialist with Wells Fargo Private Bank. “In many ways, I say this lounge can be my office away from my office.” Laura Bentele, a lawyer at Armstrong Teasdale LLP, also lauds the renovation. “The new bar is a complete departure from the more traditional areas of the club,” she says. “While the space is still highly polished, it has a more relaxed feel. The long bar top in particular is very cool … and definitely provides ample happy-hour space.” Finally, Kathryn Armstrong – who chairs the club’s Ambassadors Committee, basically its membership committee – echoes Quiroga and Bentele. “My first impression was ‘Now this is where St. Louisans are going to want to be,’” she says. “In keeping with the tradition of elegance and sophistication, the space is rich in contemporary décor and yet now teeming with the SoHo innovative club-concept mindset of cosmopolitan cities coast to coast. … I thought, ‘This is where Brooks Brothers can hobnob with UNTUCKit on the way to Busch Stadium – or the VP Ball.’ Our club has never been more relevant.” A fact sheet from the club notes that the 14th-floor renovation concludes a decade-long clubwide renovation under Henry B. “Terry” Pflager III, who now serves as president. According to that fact sheet, the overall renovation took place in response to a survey of such constituents as entrepreneurs, C-suite executives, and both midcareer and millennial corporate, civic and philanthropic leaders. Regarding its constituents, the club’s official color brochure states: “The founding members of the club included virtually all of the community leaders of their time; this tradition has carried forward to the current membership.” Platinum Clubs of Excellence – which, according to its own website, ranks the top 5 percent of private clubs nationwide against seven exacting criteria in five categories – includes Saint Louis Club among its top 50 in the “City” category. No other Missouri facility graces that category – for reasons Saint Louis Club members well appreciate and visitors should quickly discern.

“The St. Louis community has supported STAGES St. Louis so willingly,” says Michael Hamilton, artistic director of the venerable not-for-profit theater company in Kirkwood. “I am really grateful for the years of support that we’ve gotten.” STAGES St. Louis has much to celebrate this year. The company recently appointed Brad Musgrove as resident costume designer and garnered 10 nominations from the St. Louis Theater Circle. Read on to learn more about the outstanding musical theater productions and educational programming that STAGES St. Louis has been providing to the area since 1987.

S

t. Louis has such a huge, wonderful theatrical community – and that is very rare, even in big cities,” enthuses Brad Musgrove, newly-appointed resident costume designer for STAGES St. Louis, a not-for-profit theater company located in Kirkwood. Musgrove knows a thing or two about the theater world. A Kansas City native, he found acclaim as a dancer on Broadway, performing in the original casts of the Tony Award-winning musicals Fosse (1999) and The Producers (2001). While on a European tour of 42nd Street in 1999, Musgrove befriended Dana Lewis, STAGES St. Louis’ resident choreographer at the time. Lewis encouraged Musgrove to audition for the company’s upcoming production of A Chorus Line. Musgrove was cast in the show and spent a good part of his summer performing in St. Louis. When STAGES St. Louis produced A Chorus Line again in 2010, Musgrove returned to the company – this time, as costume designer. In the intervening decade, Musgrove had parlayed his nimble understanding of the body’s movement, and his equally nimble fingers, into a side business as a dancewear designer. “I know how to make the clothes dance,” Musgrove declares. “Michael [Hamilton, STAGES St. Louis’ artistic director] and Jack [Lane, executive producer] knew that I had this dancewear line, and they asked me if I wanted to design the show,” explains Musgrove. “That’s how my costume design career began.”

64

Since then, Musgrove has outfitted one to two shows each season. Now, however, he will take on a more permanent role with the company as its resident costume designer. Musgrove will design costumes for all four of the forthcoming season’s productions, a varied slate that includes I Do! I Do!, Madagascar, Mamma Mia!, and Oklahoma!. Musgrove’s appointment marks yet another step in STAGES St. Louis’ ongoing effort to build, support and enrich the St. Louis theater community. For years, Hamilton has been working to create more full-time employment opportunities for theater artists. To that end, Musgrove will join set designer James Wolk and lighting designer Sean M. Savoie to round out the company’s St. Louis-based artisans. “With Brad coming to St. Louis, I’ve been able to put together a local design team of artists who know one another, know me, know my company and know my shops,” says Hamilton. “One of the things that I love about theater, specifically musical theater, is the collaborative nature of the work. There are many different hands that come together and the more familiar you are with those hands, the better the product is likely to be.” Bringing Broadway-quality musical theater to St. Louis audiences has been the key mission of STAGES St. Louis since its founding in 1987. “Over the years, one of the things that I am most aware of is the immense amount of loyalty that we’ve enjoyed,” remarks Hamilton. Hamilton feels especially indebted to Kirkwood,

the community where he was raised, and where he and Lane set up shop nearly 32 years ago. After years of searching for a larger theater space in the area, STAGES St. Louis has collaborated with the City of Kirkwood and the Kirkwood Theatre Guild to build a brand-new performing arts center. Scheduled for completion in 2020, this spacious venue will transform downtown Kirkwood into a bona fide artsand-culture destination. STAGES St. Louis also engages young audiences and budding performers at its Performing Arts Academy, which launched in Chesterfield in 2003. A larger facility, also in Chesterfield, opened in 2013 and offers year-round educational programming in the musical theater arts. STAGES St. Louis was recently selected by the Educational Theatre Association as one of two companies in the nation to expand the JumpStart Theatre program into their local markets. Through this initiative, STAGES St. Louis will work with three local middle schools, equipping teachers with the training and skills to produce musicals with their students. “Our intention is to be there for our audience’s children, and for us to take theater to a whole new generation,” says Hamilton.
