MOVING FORWARD Last month, I strolled into a mixer hosted by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance. It was one of the Alliance’s “Connect” events, held on the beautiful patio at Gallery One, the all-suite Doubletree hotel along the Intracoastal. The event focused on artwork, with artists actually painting while Broward business’s elite mingled and chatted about business, family and the Miami Heat. And while I met executives ranging from manufacturing to home entertainment systems, I noticed something fascinating… The conversation usually turned to the law at some point. Certainly there were different aspects of law. One person was chatting with me about an employee who left to work for his competitor. While his employee had signed a non-compete agreement for two years, he struggled with whether or not he should take her to court. Another person was explaining to me how he shared a new internet concept with a friend – and then the friend beat him to market. The law has always fascinated me. During my days as Publisher of the South Florida Business Journal, I heard the most fantastic stories from my friends who were lawyers. Sadly, the newspaper industry is declining. At the same time, local, targeted magazines are thriving. According to recent third party research, Lifestyle Magazines now enjoys almost 200,000 readers in Broward County alone. Guess what – 70 percent of these readers are in top management. Lifestyle’s mission is to tell the stories that we all talk about while dining with close friends. What do we talk about? Money issues, business, family, vacations, our favorite restaurants and our kids. And that’s what we write about in the pages of our publications. Another important goal at Lifestyle is to connect the community we love together. That’s one of the reasons why Lifestyle Media Group has created the Leaders in Law Awards. This fall, we’re going to honor the best South Florida lawyers in more than a dozen categories, both

MAY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

at a ceremony at Nova Southeastern University and within the pages of our magazines. It’s our opportunity to applaud the best lawyers in categories ranging from insurance to entertainment, corporate to government, taxes to real estate. We’ll also honor the law firms who do the most for the community. For more details, visit lmgfl.com/ awards or email our chief marketing officer Dawn Rahicki at dawn@ lifestylemagazinegroup.com. The Leaders in Law Awards are just one of the many exciting events we have planned for later this year and beyond. We’ve decided, as a company, that we need to do more than just cover the county and South Florida. We need to be a part of it. Last month we began our CEO Connect concept at Grill 401. This program features a live one on one interview with our area’s most fascinating people. Of course there was great food and drinks – and great conversations. I’d like to give a special thank you to noted developer Terry Stiles for being my first interview. We spanned Terry’s life and found out how he built Stiles into one of the largest real estate companies in the nation. Future events will also feature live

interviews with some of the most interesting and influential movers and shakers of our community. On the editorial front, we’re expanding our travel and food sections, adding a real estate section, and diving deeper into the business trends that are influencing – or about to influence – South Florida. And this summer, inspired by the Alliance’s Connect event at Gallery One, we’re going to feature the best artists in Broward County – and show you how businesses are embracing art not only for its aesthetic value, but for its investment value and how that affects their bottom lines. In this issue, I hope you’ll peruse our cover story, which combines Mother’s Day with National Pet Month and features wonder women who raise children and save pets. And for lighter fare, did you know Broward County is home to a halfdozen breweries – one of them awardwinning. We welcome you to take the long walk with us as we embrace and honor our community together.t.

Quick on the draw MIAMI FASHION STYLIST RACHAEL RUSSELL AT PEEL IT OFF TO GIVE IT BACK ON LAS OLAS

The clothes off your back The average U.S. household discards around 700 pieces of clothing and textiles annually, so there’s now a nationwide clothing movement called PEEL IT OFF TO GIVE BACK, which collects “gently worn” clothing for those in need. The program made a stop at Las Olas Fine Arts on March 29, and more than 100 people packed the gallery for a “Sip & Swap” clothing donation event – which are also happening in Dallas and Chicago. Attendees donated their gently worn clothing and swapped it for something “new to you,” all while enjoying wines from event co-sponsor The Naked Grape, a winery offering eight varietals. All the remaining clothes were donated to Clothes4Souls, a global anti-poverty nonprofit organization. For details, visit clothes4souls.org.

DANA MARKHAM TALKS TO PINECREST FIFTH-GRADERS

100 women who rock What’s Pine Crest President Dana Markham discussing with these fifth-graders? “The effects of spices and scents” at the annual Kids’ Inquiry Conference, an interactive lower school science symposium that took place in March. “I am so proud of you all, with not only the findings you have presented so well, but with the way you have learned to collaborate, compromise, and solve problems during your projects,” Markham told the students, who attend the award-winning private school in Fort Lauderdale.

Those students can also be proud of Markham – she’s a nominee for the fifth annual 100 Outstanding Women of Broward County, hosted by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Broward County. The big gala is May 9 at the Signature Grand, and Markham joins other nominees who include business owners, judges, and doctors. For details on attending the event, email Danielle Cox at dcox@bgcbc.org or call her at (954) 563-2822. 100outstandingwomen.com

Drills that students actually like The Miami Dolphins stopped by Parkside Elementary School in Coral Springs to visit nearly 500 students for the Gatorade Junior Training Camp in March. The students ran through six football drills and cheerleader routines. JTC stresses a healthy lifestyle through education, physical fitness and making positive choices. “I think it brings out school spirit, unifies the classes and it gets the kids in a good mood,” Assistant Principal Larry Barretto said. “The message is also an excellent tie-in, and I think it’s important for the kids to realize there’s more to it than just having fun.” For more information on the Miami Dolphins Youth Football Clinic, Youth Football Camps, or school visits, email youthprograms@dolphins.com.

BEER NEAR HERE BY BRIAN BIENKOWSKI

Big Bear Brewing Company & American Grill 1800 N. University Drive Coral Springs 954-341-5545 bigbearbrewingco.com

PHOTOS BY DANIEL COYA

Heard of Sierra Nevada? Sam Adams? Forget about those craft-beers-turned-nationwidephenoms – they’ve been beat out by a Broward brewery.

On most mornings, Matt Cox is alone at the Big Bear Brewing Company in Coral Springs, cleaning his brew kettle. He actually crawls inside the 10-foot vessel and hand-scrubs the surfaces. “Everything in good brewing practices starts with clean equipment,” says Cox, brewmaster of the 15-year-old microbrewery on a stretch of University Drive between a SunTrust bank and a Japanese restaurant. “Bacterial contamination is our biggest enemy in brewing. When a beer goes into any vessel or container, it needs to be clean and sanitized – from the biggest tank, to the smallest bottle.” Cox’s cleanliness obsession has its rewards. Last September, Big Bear’s Polar Light took a gold medal at the United States Open Beer Championship in Atlanta, a national contest featuring more than 1,650 American brews in 65 categories. And Big Bear’s Paw Print IPA was declared Grand Champion IPA at the United States Beer Tasting Championship in Manchester, New Hampshire, just last September.

LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | MAY 2013

If you’ve ever bought a craft beer, you know it’s pricier than your average Budweiser. Here’s why: it’s hard work. Unlike other state-of-the-art modern breweries, Big Bear has no computer touch screens to regulate the water temperature or mix the malt. “All the labor during the brewing process is done by hand,” Cox says. “There are no motors to mix the mash, for instance. The dry weight of the mash can be up to 1,000 pounds, which I then combine with water and mix with a hand paddle. The mixture becomes much heavier as it blends. All the malt has to then be removed manually when the process is finished.” One small mistake in the milling process, water purification, or in the accuracy of time and temperature could ruin a whole batch – equal to 20 kegs of beer. Cox has to run the different varieties of malt through a mill to gently crush it. The malt is then measured to the thousandth of an inch to create the desired flavor and body of the brew. The water Cox uses to mix with the malt goes through a water-purification process that strips contaminants out of the Broward tap water. He then rebuilds the water using calcium and magnesium – each brew has its own specific type of water. After 20 hours of labor, Cox has his 20 kegs’ worth of beer – but he doesn’t keep them in kegs. Instead, he stores the liquid in a half-dozen 8-foot-tall “serving vessels.” And directly from there is where customers at the Big Bear Brewery taste their purchases. Even the tubes the beer travels through are handpicked by Cox. They measure a quarter-inch in diameter compared to the normal half- to three-eighths inches, which leaves less beer sitting in the tubes when they are not in use – because beer sitting in the lines usually becomes stale. The tubes are also made of a nonporous material so they won’t collect dirt or bacteria, which could alter the taste of the beer. Cost: 45 cents a foot compared to 20 cents a foot. “Our process makes a difference when you compare taste and quality to the supermarket-type beers that people buy or drink at bars,” Cox says. “We keep the beer in a natural and pure state. We don’t pasteurize, use any chemical shelf-life extenders or flavor enhancers. Some beers we lightly filter, some are left completely unfiltered.” If this intrigues your taste buds, there’s only one problem: you can’t buy Big Bear beer anywhere but in Coral Springs. “Our beers are only sold on premise, so we can ensure they are always kept at optimal temperatures,” Cox says. “They also sell very fast, so we don’t have to worry about them getting old or losing flavor. That separates us and some other local brew pubs from all other beer products.”

Bang for the buck While craft beers are pricier than the average national brand, they’re also punchier. Check out the ABV – alcohol by volume of these brews… • Michelob Ultra – 4.1 percent • Bud Lite – 4.2 percent • Sam Adams Lager – 4.8 percent • Big Bear Polar Light – 4.9 percent • Native Brewing Thunderhead Red – 5.2 percent

• Big Bear Paw Print IPA – 6.5 percent • Holy Mackerel Special Golden Ale – 8.5 percent

• Holy Mackerel Panic Attack – 10 percent As Holy Mackerel brewmaster Bobby G. puts it: “Some craft beer consumers drink less beer because of alcohol content, thus cutting down on calories and cash spent.”

The Mack House Holy Mackerel Nano Brewery A hip hangout for students from nearby FAU and Lynn University, featuring live music, the aroma of shisha (flavored tobacco), and a tapas-like menu. Brewmaster Kevin Abbott usually offers five main ales, with prices in the $6 range. They include: Maple Bacon Coffee Porter – Just like the name says, it’s brewed with maple syrup, smoked malt (to suggest bacon), and coffee. Brown to black in color and medium bodied. No Crusts – A peanut-butter-and-jelly brown ale brewed with real peanuts and assorted fruits. Hop Gun IPA – In a sea of overly bitter IPAs, Abbott went for balance. Amber colored and medium bodied, Hop Gun has a strong malt flavor with hints of caramel and honey. Floridian Hefeweizen – Unfiltered German style wheat beer with a pale golden color. Aromas of banana and clove with light citrus fruit, light to medium bodied with similar flavors, prickly carbonation and clean finish. Red Dawn Red Ale – Deep red to brown color in color, Red Dawn has a fruity nose with hints of vanilla and caramel. The flavor is bready with dark fruits and caramel

Native Brewery

A laid-back establishment run by brewmaster Bobby G, who loves to add unconventional ingredients like chili peppers, pecans, and coffee. The results are rich and explosive but still well-balanced. Brews, also in the $6 range, include: Panic Attack – Canadian malt adds richness and sweetness, while spices such as fennel seed and ginger layer on the flavor. A strong ale – hence the name. Mack in Black – Belgian yeast and the addition of pomegranate juice in the fermentation makes this concoction a bit lighter than Panic Attack and gives it a thinner body. It has notes of chocolate and coffee. Special Golden Ale – Belgian-style brew, unfiltered with a hint of ginger, fennel, and slight honey sweetness. Dry and refreshing with fruity aromas.

Although not a brew pub, brewmaster Adam Fine creates a local range of flavorful beers that reminds him of what being a local is all about – spending time with friends and enjoying the weather year round. His brews include: Native Lager – Brewed with the finest German malts, hops, and a classic German yeast strain that produces an exceptionally smooth tasting golden lager, this is perfect for hot summer days. The Eleven Brown Ale – Hints of caramel and roasted nuts compliment a slight hop bitterness, which balances the sweetness and ends with a nice clean finish. Thunderhead Red – A classic American amber ale that balances the smooth caramel flavor of Maris Otter malt with a light hop bitterness and aroma. Adam’s brews can be found at many local establishments such as the Poorhouse, The Downtowner and selected Whole Foods, Publix, and Total Wine stores. www.nativebrewingco.com.

The special vet: Stephanie Correa, Fort Lauderdale BY RYAN CORTES

PHOTOS BY DOWNTOWN PHOTO/FORT LAUDERDALE

BY RYANThe CORTES animal hospital Stephanie Correa opened in 2003 is one of only four or five like it in the country. It’s called Animal Cancer Care Clinic, and the oncologist has treated more than 20,000 pets with cancer. Her clinic specializes in something called “one medicine” — an idea that humans and animals can benefit from the same research and discoveries. As Correa explains it, “What we’re coming to find with this concept of one medicine is that we’re actually more similar to other species – dogs and cats – than different.” She points out that both women and female dogs and cats get breast cancer, and that the research on dog and cat cancer comes back much quicker – sometimes a year for dogs as opposed to 12 years for humans – because dog years are so much shorter. After getting her undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia, Correa studied at the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine. Then came an internship with the Animal Medical Center in New York. It was there Correa became interested in the study of cancer, after her father-in-law died from the disease. She spends her days now surrounded by animals, but if you ask what her home life is like, Correa will laugh. “Oh my god,” she says. “I live in a zoo.” Consider what roams through the Correa household… » 5-year-old chocolate labrador named Speed » 5-year-old golden retriever named Saint » 15-year-old toy poodle named Cassie » 3-year-old cat named Dice » 3-year-old cat named Maple » 2-year-old bearded dragon named Shiny » 3-year-old hermit crab named Hermy Correa has been married to her high school sweetheart Tony Correa for 25 years. They have three children: Grace, 13, Antonio, 10, and Nathaniel, 7. She’s not sure yet what Mother’s Day looks like this year, but Correa knows where she’d prefer to be. “We generally either relax at home,” she says, “or we do an outdoor event, like a park or beach.” Anywhere the zoo fits.

COVER STORY Boxes for cats: Mindy Rapkin, PHOTOS BY DOWNTOWN PHOTO/FORT LAUDERDALE

Fort Lauderdale

Every Tuesday for the last three and a half years, Mindy Rapkin has shown up at the Broward Humane Society holding empty shoeboxes. She collects them every week from different shoe chains and brings them for the cats in the Humane Society. “The shoe box makes them more comfortable,” Rapkin says. “They’re pretty traumatized once they get in there.” But that’s not all she does. “She socializes with them, feeds them, gives them toys, treats, cleans the dishes – she’s a really, really good volunteer as far as dedication, and she loves cats,” says Colette Saucier, the director of volunteer services at the Broward Humane Society. “We’re really lucky to have Mindy with us.”

BY RYAN CORTES

When she’s not busy as one of the 475 volunteers at the Humane Society, Rapkin tends to her three cats and one dog at her home in Hollywood Oaks. She has a 9-year-old black greyhound named Kabar, who’s a retired racer. There’s also a cat named Tony who “turned out to be a Persian, but was a flea-infested mess when I got him.” Rapkin also has a black-and-white cat named Spike and a gray cat named Mya, who’s missing her front right leg. Rapkin, who used to work for Comcast before retiring, plans on spending Mother’s Day with her husband of 16 years, Eric, and her two daughters, Sheena, 14, and Deliah, 12, who both attend University School, a part of Nova Southeastern University.

At Northwestern Mutual, We take our community involvement seriously...

And it feels like this...

On March 29th Northwestern Mutual - The South Florida Group lit up Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital with smiles! Over 200 Children fighting childhood cancer and other diseases were given a green Cheeriodicals box. Each box was assembled by our team with age appropriate toys, games, snacks, magazines, and a special card. (Cheerful + Periodicals = Cherriodicals!)

We invite you to join our team and be part of the action!

"Happiness can heal - it accelerates a family's fight against childhood cancer and other diseases so we're thrilled to partner with Cheeriodicals to bring joy to Fort Lauderdale families," said Kevin Lawhon, Managing Partner, Northwestern Mutual - The South Florida Group. "As a father of three daughters, I can tell you a sick child is something that can make your heart ache, but I can't imagine the emotional toll that cancer and other diseases can have on a family. Our goal was to strengthen families by alleviating some of the stress accompanying their experience - and give them a little bit of fun."

Northwestern Mutual is the marketing name for The Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Company, Milwaukee, WI (NM) (life and disability insurance, annuities) and its subsidiaries.

Footy’s Wing Ding Golf Classic For the 14th consecutive year, South Florida’s radio legend “Footy” will take to the golf course along with a couple of hundred friends and supporters of a charity that is close to his heart – Here’s Help Inc. This year’s Wing Ding Golf Classic, hosted by Badia Spices, takes place on Friday, May 3 at the Pembroke Pines Golf & Racquet Club, considered to be one of Broward County’s premiere private golf clubs. The club features an exceptional 18 hole, par-72 golf course. Registration and lunch starts at 11:30 a.m. with the shot-gun start at 1:00 p.m. “We couldn’t have the terrific success we have enjoyed over the years without our many friends who take time out of their busy schedule to help us raise money and awareness for Here’s Help, the team-driven drug treatment agency for people ages 13 years and older,” Footy explained. “Add to that the corporate sponsorships and underwriting, we have a winning combination that is making a positive difference in the lives of some very important young people in our community.” At the top of the list of sponsors are Publix Super Markets, Greenspoon Marder P.A., Levinson Jewelers, BB&T, Rick Case Automotive Group, and Comcast. Teams of four or individual players are welcome, with a registration fee of $225.00 per player. The registration fee includes greens fees and cart, range balls during practice, lunch sponsored by El Pimiento and all tournament amenities and competitions, dinner, and gifts. Footy is known for his deeply rooted commitment to community service and has been a presence on South Florida radio for over 35 years. He was a cohost on a locally produced South Florida morning show from 1974 to 2006, thus holding the record of longest Top 40 CHR DJ in North America.

100 Years of Fighting Cancer One hundred years ago, the American Cancer Society and the American people started the fight of a lifetime. One hundred years ago, the word “cancer” was not spoken, and almost everyone who was diagnosed with cancer died. After all the research and discoveries and new treatments, the survival rates have changed for the better. Today, the goal is to change the statistics from two out of every three people surviving cancer for at least five years to three out of three surviving…period! The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots organization with more than three million volunteers saving lives and fighting for every birthday for every person battling cancer in every community. To date, there has been a 20 percent decline in cancer death rates in the U.S. since 1991, and a 50 percent drop in smoking rates. On Saturday, May 11, the American Cancer Society invites you to become a part of the solution by supporting the American Cancer Society’s 100th Birthday Ball honoring AutoNation Chairman and CEO Mike Jackson, cancer survivor Lynne Curry, and hear a special testimonial from a newly engaged 22-year-old who has been battling brain cancer since he was three years old. The event is being held at the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 with entertainment by The Steve Chase Band and an exciting silent auction that includes vacation trips, jewelry, spa days, and more! The Honorary Chairs of the 100th Birthday Ball are Wayne and Marti Huizenga. The co-chairs are two entrepreneurs: Keith Koenig, co-founder along with his brother Kevin, of City Furniture; and Terry

Stiles, president and CEO of Stiles, Inc. “The American Cancer Society’s 100th Birthday is an opportunity to join in the battle to end cancer…for your health, your family’s health, and the health of future generations,” said Keith Koenig. Terry Stiles added, “It’s a celebration of 100 years of saving lives and creating more birthdays and hope.” Nationally, the American Cancer Society’s goal is to raise $100 million dollars to do more research, to conduct more tests and surveys, and, in the end, to save more lives. Help the American Cancer Society finish the fight – go to FinishtheFight.org, like them on Facebook, or follow them on Twitter (@AmericanCancer).

stop suffering from migraines Kody was a chronic headache and migraine sufferer who was on a daily regimen of pain medicine. After his very first treatment, Kody headaches disminished significantly.

no pain no drugs no needles

Ever since I can remember I had headaches. When I was a teenager I noticed my jaw was locking and clicking. My parents took me to all kinds of Doctors and I had many scans,and MRI's. No one could find out why I had this terrible condition. Each Doctor would put me on another medication to control my pain. I found Dr. Kodish two months ago and I am very thankful. Since I began tru-denta therapy I am pain free for the first time since I can remember. I feel like I can go on trips and be normal again.

Cultivating Cash for Causes BY BRANDON BALLENGER

David Blyer’s job is to make it easier for you to lose money. The 53-year-old Plantation resident has an MBA from Nova Southeastern University. His first job out of college was at NCR, a company that makes ATMs, checkout computer software, and self-service kiosks. “That gave me a foundation in how to sell software to businesses – manufacturers, wholesalers, government, and industrial companies,” Blyer recalls. Within five years, Blyer was successful enough to be recruited by Tandem Computers (now owned by Hewlett-Packard), where he took the Caribbean territory and built up $100 million in revenue from scratch. Then he co-founded a company in 1994 out of the side of his friend’s house. It was called Vento Software, “a vertical business application for the banking, telco, and healthcare industries” – and he sold it within a year to one of the biggest software companies in the world, Oracle. The company made him a division president, and he quickly took it from $80 million in revenue to $220 million. “After about two and a half years, I retired,” Blyer says. “I invested in a manufacturing facility and sold that to a private equity firm,

50

MAY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

and now I sit on the Young Entrepreneur’s Council at Nova Southeastern University, and the board of directors for DryClean USA.” Retirement, if you can call it that, didn’t last long. “I was sitting around with executives and they said, ‘You know tech, let us tell you about the challenges we’re facing. Nobody has built a platform that is helping nonprofits create awareness and cultivate donors,’” Blyer says. Blyer brought back his old team and has spent the past few years building DonorCommunity – an online platform that helps nonprofits raise money, network, and track all the messy stuff that keeps a charity running. The company launched in 2009 and has 32 employees. Its clients include the Dan Marino Foundation, ChildNet, Boys & Girls Club of America, Kids in Distress, and Place of Hope, among others around the country. A one-time setup fee is $2,000, and an annual subscription is $7,200. For that, a nonprofit gets donor tracking, with details including their histories and preferences. They also get web hosting, an online auction system, event management, marketing tools, social networking integration, mobile notification of donations, and reports and analytics for all of it. As Blyer describes it, it’s like giving a nonprofit its own website, Facebook, Constant Contact, Salesforce, and eBay all in one. It can replace several third-party services and beats any of them because it’s all integrated. The platform teaches you how to use everything, and there’s always free tech support if you run aground. DonorCommunity can even get other people to help nonprofits do the fundraising by generating custom pages for donors’ friends. Say you want people to donate to a cause instead of giving you a birthday gift – donors can specify such a request through the nonprofit’s site, give their friends’ email addresses, and generate an invitation to the party. They also launched a new crowdfunding service this past December called MicroGiving, and as of March, they have 300 active fundraisers nationally. “Small or medium nonprofits have the same needs as a large one, but they don’t have the same resources,” Blyer says. “I’m thrilled about selling software, but I’m more thrilled when they use it and it helps.”

Bringing in the bucks While David Blyer has never run a nonprofit, he’s learned a lot in the past few years about what they need and how they can grow. Here’s his advice... Bring it all together. “The future is consolidation. Imagine if the executive director gets a business card and has to put it in the donor system, and then in the email marketing system, and then maybe Outlook, and the person replies to one of those and says ‘Don’t send me an email’ and not all the databases get updated – you want integration, to create efficiencies.” Keep it personal. “Even in online donations it often takes you out of the site [to a third party’s], and more so than not, people don’t get notified about an event or don’t get a thank you call. You end up always looking for new donors because you’re not cultivating existing donors.”

S SILVER LINING CATERING 2059 Blount Road

Pompano Beach (954) 917-1020 ext. 314 Silverliningcatering.com Hollywood@silverliningcatering.com

TAKING OFF

What started as meals in the air has grown into a groundbreaking event company Mitch Amsterdam and Mike Linder, pioneeers of the private jet catering industry, began their round-the-clock business in 2001 with Silver Lining InFlight Catering. “It’s 24 hours a day, we’ve never closed in 12 years,” Linder says. The two lifelong friends have set the standard for aviation concierge services, providing a first class experience for worldwide jet travel out of South Florida (servicing all private airports from Orlando to Miami). Five years ago, the duo was looking for a new venture and opened one of South Florida’s most unique restaurant venues, Jet Runway Café (see box), located on the tarmac at FXE Airport in Fort Lauderdale. The café has earned rave reviews as the lines out the door can attest. Now they’ve moved on to their most ambitious challenge yet – becoming South Florida’s most exquisite catering and special events company.

52

MAY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

This means creating uniquely designed events ranging from intimate weddings (see box) to lavish galas. “There’s really nothing out of the ordinary that’s thrown us off in 12 years,” Linder says proudly. The reason might be Silver Lining’s size: 150 team members and two 20,000 square foot kitchens located in Pompano Beach and Palm Beach and a venue that can hold a jetliner – because it’s indeed an airplane hangar. That may be why Silver Lining has hosted Fortune 500 CEOs, Saudi royalty, celebrities, and musicians. But Catering and Events Director John “Hollywood” Abresch has another explanation. “The fact that we service the private jet industry makes us able to handle anything. The industry is so specific to demanding needs that if you can handle the clientele, you can handle anything and everything.”


Everything under one roof “When I sit down and talk to someone about what we do, they think we do the catering from Jet Runway Café,”Amsterdam says. “They don’t understand we have a completely separate catering company that provides food, lighting, décor, floral, and entertainment.” Another unique aspect of Silver Lining Catering is their venues, including Jet Runway Café, the tarmac on the runway, and the airplane hangar, which serves as a blank canvas for even the most creative of minds. They can handle events for hundreds of people and even thousands. For example, a recent MS Gala seated 1,200 and featured a runway fashion show, luncheon, and silent auction, all produced in house by the Silver Lining Team. Karen Dresbach, President of the MS Society of South Florida adds, “Mitch, John, and the entire team at Silver Lining went above and beyond with every detail to insure the event was a huge success. We could not have been more pleased.” “We are very into helping out the community,”

5540 NW 21st Terrace Fort Lauderdale jetrunwaycafe.com (954) 958-9900

Linder says. And the community has responded. The American Heart Association, Cameras for Kids Foundation, MS, Charity Guild, Deliver the Dream, and the Danielle Demarzo Foundation have all partnered with Silver Lining Catering over the past year to create some of the most illustrious and memorable galas and fundraisers. “The events are definitely first class and the attention to detail is like nothing we have ever seen before,” remarks Maria Hunt, The American Heart Assocation’s senior development director. “The AHA has used Silver Lining for several events, ranging from a young professionals event called Pulse to a Moulin Rouge party. Both had the wow factor.” Betsey Chesler, founder of the Cameras for Kids Foundation, has also relied on Silver Lining for several events. “You expect things to go wrong at a big event,” Chesler says. “But with Silver Lining, it’s just the opposite. I realized I could let them handle everything. They never cease to amaze.”

Jet Runway Cafe: really taking off The words “airport food” don’t often cause mouths to water. And who goes to an airport to eat when they don’t have somewhere to fly? But Jet Runway Café is a destination unto itself. The breakfast and lunch restaurant at the Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport has been called “one of the best lunch spots” in Fort Lauderdale by the Sun Sentinel and a “hidden gem” by New Times. Jet Runway Café has earned stellar reviews from sites like Yelp and Urban Spoon. “It’s one of those few South Florida restaurants where it’s hip to be seen,” co-owner Mitch Amsterdam says. “It’s right on the tarmac, the only one that’s directly on the runway. Private jets and helicopters pull right up, where both passengers and pilots come in to eat.” And some of those meals are as unique as the location, such as the turkey pretzel roll and the picnic basket sandwich consisting of BBQ pulled pork, pepper jack cheese, mac-n-cheese, and crispy onion strings on country white bread. While the restaurant isn’t open for dinner, it is available for private functions, much like its next door airplane hangar.

Weddings: plane, not plain When Mike Kontos got married in February, the easiest decision for him and his bride was “Who’s the caterer?” Silver Lining was Kontos’s only choice for the wedding. A pilot for a private jet company, Kontos has been eating Silver Lining InFlight Catering for years. It services the company he flies for, just as it has for pretty much every private flight departing from South Florida. Co-owner Mike Linder and Catering and Events Director John Abresh took the basic idea that Kontos had – to get married under the nose of a plane and hold the wedding reception in a hangar. They took it to epic proportions… The ceremony was held under the nose of a DC-3, the cocktail party was on the tarmac and the reception moved inside the airplane hangar. A four-course meal was served family style on a long table running down the center of the hangar. Kontos says, “I would definitely recommend them to anybody down here. Everything we wanted, they made happen.” It was the wedding he and his wife always dreamed of.


SPECIAL ADVE RTISI NG

biz spotlight HOLISTIC MEDICINE – KENNETH WOLINER, M.D. r. Kenneth Woliner likes to solve problems. As a matter of fact, it is his life mission. “I hate to say to a patient, ‘I still don’t know.’ So, if I don’t already know the answer to my patients’ questions, you can be sure I’m going to do more research on their medical conditions so I can make them feel better.” Apparently this board-certified physician has been doing just that. “I might not have been sick, but I definitely wasn’t feeling right,” said Carlos Gutierrez, a luxury real estate broker in Miami Beach. “With all the exercise I do, I shouldn’t have this extra belly fat. Dr. Woliner looked beyond the numbers and found ways to optimize my nutrition, getting that weight off. Now I’m back playing rugby with my old college classmates.” Carlos is just one of the many satisfied patients that frequent Dr. Woliner’s holistic medical practice located in Boca Raton. Five years ago, demand for his services grew so much that he needed to more than triple his space and move to a beautiful 3,500 square feet new office on Glades Road. It is the individualized attention that Dr. Woliner gives to each patient that has made his practice so successful. “I spend 80 minutes with each new patient,” explains Dr. Woliner, “and take the time to listen to them. It is more important to know which patient has a disease than to know which disease has the patient.” Dr. Woliner also sees a lot of patients that have weight issues. With a bachelor’s degree in Nutrition from Cornell, he is well able to teach about diet and exercise, but realizes that a slow metabolism is often the culprit when a patient has trouble reducing. Dr. Woliner uses an indirect calorimetry machine to measure his patients’ metabolism more precisely, proving that a starvation diet isn’t necessary (or even appropriate) to help a patient reach their goal weight. “In addition to hypothyroidism, a slow metabolism could be caused by insulin resistance, food allergies or adrenal fatigue.” There is one other thing that sets Dr. Woliner apart from his peers. Even though he has incorporated a functional medicine approach of diet, exercise, vitamins, and natural hormones, he still is very much grounded in evidence-based mainstream medicine, admitting patients and serving as vice-chair of the Continuing Medical Education committee at West Boca Medical Center. Dr. Woliner also is on the board of directors of the Palm Beach County Medical Society and a Volunteer Assistant Professor with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, showing a commitment not just to his patients, but to the community as a whole. And the best part is that Dr. Woliner genuinely wants his patients to get well. “When my patients get better they don’t need to come back and see me, but I know I’ll treat their friends and relatives.” And isn’t that what family medicine is all about.

A NEW STATE-OF-THE-ART TREATMENT IS NOW AVALABLE FOR TOENAIL FUNGUS DR. ERIC WEINSTEIN, D.P.M. 954.796.1800 Weston - 2300 N Commerce Pkwy. Suite 321 Weston 33326 Coral Springs - 817 Coral Ridge Dr. Coral Springs 33071

Dr Weinstein is the first physician in South Florida and one of the first in the country to utilize the PinPointe Foot Laser. Over the past 4 years he has performed over 2000 procedures. This FDA approved technology kills the pathogens that cause toenail fungus (Onychomycosis) The gentle laser light works through the nail. • Safe. • No side effects. • Does not harm the nail or skin. • Painless-no anesthesia needed. • Shoes can be worn immediately after treatment. A fungus infection of the toenail, also known as onychomycosis, is one of the most common dermatologic disorders affecting the foot. The disease is characterized by a thickening of the toenail plate, debris under the toenail, a lifting of the leading edge of the nail, a change in nail color and occasionally an odor. Patients complain that toenail fungus is ugly and embarrassing. This condition is often ignored because the infection can be present for years without causing any pain.

58

MAY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

Contributing factors for developing nail fungus infection include: • A history of athlete’s foot • Injury to the nail bed • Sports/ shoe trauma • Excessive perspiration • Diabetes • Circulatory problems • Immune-deficiency conditions Treatments for Fungal Nails Historically, treatments for fungal nails included topical medications, oral agents (pills) or surgical removal of the nail plate. The topical medications were largely ineffective. Oral agents have been known to have possible side affects involving the liver, stomach upset, rashes and temporary loss of taste. Blood tests are needed to monitor the liver enzymes. Removal of the nail plate was painful and debilitating. HOW DOES THE LASER WORK? This patented laser is specially designed to penetrate through your toenail and destroy the specific pathogens embedded in and under your nail causing the infection. IS THIS LASER PAINFUL? The gentle laser light beam has no effect on healthy tissue. There is no discomfort associated

with the treatment during or after. This treatment does not harm or affect your activity in any way. Some patients may experience the sensation of warmth. IS THIS TREATMENT SAFE? There are no age or health restrictions or limit ations. Worldwide over 150,000 PinPointe procedures have been performed with no adverse reactions, injuries, disabilities or known side effects. As you may know, the use of the oral medication available today for treatment of fungus toenails, carries with it possible systemic involvement (commonly the liver and kidney). This laser does not! Dr Weinstein has offices in Weston and Coral Springs and has been in practice for 30 years. He is Board Certified by The American Board of Podiatric Medicine. He has lectured nationally about the PinPointe Foot Laser. He has appeared on Fox, ABC, and NBC local news regarding the PinPointe Foot Laser.

health and youth in a few visits. She incorporates innovative technologies, personalized treatment plans and an experienced, highly trained and dedicated team. The newest trend is AntiAging and Biological (holistic) Dentistry. Physicians abroad are recommending all metals in their patients’ mouth be removed for optimal health. Not just anyone can remove these amalgam fillings; there are many precautions that need to be taken when dealing with the removal. ANTI-AGING MEDICINE Cardiologist, cancer specialists, endocrinologist and other medical experts are referring their patients to Dr. Cintron. These physicians understand how vital dental health is to the health of the whole body. Dr. Cintron is certified by “The IAOMT” to safely remove these potentially hazardous fillings. The body naturally has an electric current, especially in the mouth because of its proximity to the brain. The upper teeth are less than 2 inches from the brain, which causes much concern. The electrical activity is dramatically increased due to the placement of the fillings. The combination of the elements in these fillings releases both a positive and negative high electrical current and acts like small batteries in your mouth.

This has an impact in your immune and neurological system. DENTAL ARTISTRY Rather than pursue a career as an artist, Dr. Cintron made the right decision to manifest her creative eye for beauty into smile rejuvenation. “The love and passion I have for people and their health led me to cosmetic dentistry,” she says. Offering patients over 25 years of experience, Dr. Cintron is a proud member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, an organization that boasts rigorous membership criteria, representing her high standards and attention to detail. “There are certain things you do not learn in school. An artistic eye, for example, is a God-given gift. Seeing how a smile can look its best at any age comes naturally to me. It is fascinating to see the improvements cosmetic dentistry can have on health, energy, self-esteem, and appearance.” Since she is an international practice; out-of-town patients are escorted the moment they land in Fort Lauderdale, and are assigned a personal concierge, who ensures all of their needs are met including accommodations, transportation and more. Once the consultation begins, Dr. Cintron assesses each patient’s dental needs with high-tech photography and digital X-rays. After the data has been acquired, the patient is taken to a private office where their case is presented to them and the Doctor speaks oneon-one about their goals, concerns and options.

DO YOU HAVE AN

OPTIMAL THYROID? THYROID HORMONE RESISTANCE IS MORE COMMON THAN PEOPLE REALIZE. “I HAVE TRIED EVERY DIET KNOWN TO MAN (OR MOMS) THESE LAST FEW YEARS – TO NO AVAIL.” Alyson continued to tell me her story. “For example, this past summer, my best friend flew me to their home in Sonoma for an entire month. We ate nothing but organic everything, lean protein, I drank 150 ounce-plus of water a day and did a high intensity workout every morning mixing up interval training with boot camp at her gym. In exactly 30 days – I lost a grand total of THREE pounds. I didn’t even lose the initial ‘water weight’ everyone else loses.” I empathized, “It’s hard to stay motivated with minimal results.” “I’m willing to starve myself, if that would work. I even did two rounds of hCG. My wallet’s lighter, but that’s about it.” “The FDA recently published a website, www.fda.gov/hcgdiet, detailing how hCG diet products are illegal, and how restrictive diets such as that one can cause electrolyte disturbances, an irregular heartbeat and are potentially fatal.” I continued, “But looking at your diet history, I don’t think the problem is one of eating too much.” “Dr. Woliner, what else could it be? I have a friend that blew up taking Abilify for her depression, and another while on Actos for diabetes, but I’m not on any medications.” “It’s true that many drugs have

weight gain as a common side effect [1]. But there are other causes of weight gain. With your other symptoms of cold intolerance, fatigue, and constipation, I’m thinking that you have an untreated thyroid condition [2].” “I begged my other doctors to treat me for that, but they all said no.” “Some doctors focus too much on lab tests without considering the patient’s history and physical exam findings [3]. Thyroid hormone resistance is more common than people realize.” Alyson sat with a puzzled look on her face. “So, even if these doctors said my tests were normal, I might still have a thyroid problem? [4]” “The word ‘normal’ has many meanings. There is a difference between ‘common’ and ‘optimal’ [5]. Rather than using a range that includes people who are overweight and being treated for high cholesterol and other conditions, perhaps it would be better to use narrower ranges of persons who feel ‘dandy’ [6].” “Does anyone even use that word anymore?” “My practice is built on patientto-patient referrals. Just liking my bedside manner is not enough to convince your friends to see me. You have to glow. So yes, I do plan on making you feel dandy.” After finishing Alyson’s physical exam, my staff used our Korr indirect calorimetry machine to measure her metabolic rate [7].

“You’re at ‘minus 20%’. That’s one of slowest metabolism’s I’ve ever seen!” “How do we fix that?” “I use a holistic approach that combines behavior changes, diet, exercise, supplements, and of course medications [8,9]. I prefer to use T3 based drugs as they have been shown to cause significantly more weight loss than T4 drugs such as Synthroid alone [10].” As I ramped up Alyson’s dose of thyroid medication, her fatigue and other symptoms began to resolve. To be on the safe side, I periodically rechecked her EKG and bone density, which remained normal [11]. “Dr. Woliner, your scale says I only lost 49 pounds, but at home, naked, I’m down 51!” Dr. Kenneth Woliner is a boardcertified family physician in private practice in Boca Raton.

There haven’t been any Vikings around for over 1,000 years yet, close to AIA just off Oakland Park Boulevard, there is a direct descendant of the Viking, Haakon Haakonson. Norway was never larger than when he ruled. Jarle Holstad, Jay to his clientele, maintained the Viking tradition of strength by developing the formula: Power = Weight divided by Time. THE NO CARDIO ZONE Cardio is important only if you eat wrong and work out wrong. Walking for 30 minutes burns 150 calories. As soon as you stop walking, the calorie burning stops. Working out with weights for 30 minutes burns a 1,000 calories and calories continue to burn many hours afterwards, if your concentrate. Concentration is the secret to burning calories and building muscles. If your health is important to you there are 3 things to remember.

MAY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

The most important thing is mental attitude, then nutrition and fi nally, functioning. Functioning is performing daily tasks. If how you look is important to you, then you do cosmetic body building. This is looking into the mirror, seeing what you don’t like and targeting the areas you want to improve. If you are pear shaped and you do cardio and lose weight, you are just a smaller pear. If you do cosmetic body building you concentrate on changing the shape of your body, you lose weight and you tailor the pear. Only weight can tone a muscle. Cardio cannot tone a muscle. In order to tone a muscle and sculpt a body the blood has to stay in the area you want to focus on until the job is done. If you jump around, do circuit training and exhaust yourself, nothing is accomplished. You may lose weight, but you never tone. When people come to my gym I ask them “do you want to look like a sprinter or do you want to look like a long distance runner?” No one

has ever said they want to look like a long distance runner. It’s more work to run a 5K than to run 100 yards. But, the sprinter does more work per second than the long distance runner. This is the reason their bodies look dramatically different. Power = Weight divided by Time is proven success if you want to change the way you look. THE NO CARDIO ZONE 30 minutes 4X a week will change your life. I believe so strongly in the No Cardio Zone that I am willing to give you one complimentary week of instruction.

UPLIFTING RESULTS For over 35 years, Roger H. Stewart, MD has been a pioneer in cosmetic dermatology and skin cancer treatment, employing stateof-the-art technology in his East Fort Lauderdale practice. As we age, our skin continually changes. Over time, wrinkles and uneven color are compounded by a reduction in the resiliency of the skin and changes in the contours of the face. What begins as an apple shape can end up as a pear shape as gravity, heredity, hormones and environmental factors like sun damage come into play. In the past, invasive surgery in the form of a facelift and/or other lift surgeries were the most common solution to tighten loose skin from aging. FDA-approved Ultherapy is a new type of nonsurgical, non-invasive tightening procedure that uses ultrasound and the body’s own natural healing processes to lift, tone, and tighten loose skin on the brow, neck, and under the chin. Unlike surgery, there is no cutting and no needles or recovery period. Ultherapy uses ultrasound to stimulate the deep structural support layers of the skin—including those typically addressed in a surgical facelift—without disturbing the surface of the skin. Using ultrasound, Ultherapy specifically targets the deep, structural skin tissues where collagen is located, working from the inside-out to lift and tighten skin. A smooth hand-piece is placed on your skin and an image of the tissue beneath is projected on a screen, allowing your practitioner to “see” where they will treat your

skin. Using the hand-piece, tiny deposits of focused ultrasound energy are delivered at precise depths below the skin. Your body’s response to this energy is to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen. The result is a tightening and gradual lifting—or shifting—of the skin back into a more youthful position and form-fitting shape. The procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, after which you can return to normal activities immediately. Results typically unfold over the course of 2-3 months, and for up to 6 months in some cases, including a noticeable lifting and tightening of the skin on the neck, under the chin, along the jawline, and on the brow. While ultrasound does not duplicate the results of surgery, many patients are either not ready for a face lift, and/or prefer a more natural looking result. In

these cases, Ultherapy provides a noticeable improvement without the cost, risk and downtime of surgery.

Headmaster Spotlight University School

Headmaster Dr. Jerome S. Chermak Educational Visionary Takes School Into Future Jerome S. Chermak, Ed.D., is an education leader for the 21st century. As the headmaster of University School of Nova Southeastern University (NSU), Chermak’s philosophy is very much in line with the private, pre-k through 12 college preparatory school’s founding principles created 42 years ago, yet his is a vision for today. “University School is an environment where students receive the knowledge, skills, and habits that are required for them to be successful, but it is also a place where we are developing global leaders who have a sense of responsibility. We want our students to be well-prepared academically, but we also want our students to be of good character,” said Chermak. Having the University School located on the main campus of Nova Southeastern University also allows students unprecedented access to a university environment, which Chermak believes gives students a leg up as they prepare for post-secondary school life.

As the school’s headmaster since 1999, the educator also brings a deeper understanding to the inner workings of University School on many levels. “When I arrived in Florida 31 years ago, I had two goals: to find a position in education and to also find schooling for my children. I looked at University School for my two children and I didn’t have to search any further.” Chermak said that because he and his wife, Sheila, were University School parents for 18 years, he brings a perspective which allows him to look at issues and concerns from many different sides. As an educator, too, he has held various positions at the school as social studies chairman, as teacher in the middle and upper schools, as well as the director of the lower and middle schools. Before his appointment as headmaster, he was the associate headmaster for 10 years. As headmaster for the past 14 years, Chermak has been lauded for his achievements as a leader and for his innovative developments of exemplary educational opportunities. Visit the 28-acre “campus-within-a-campus” at Nova Southeastern University in Davie, and his vision is evident. Since 2005, and in collaboration with NSU, the headmaster instituted the largest expansion project in the school’s four decade history — a multi-year $100 million investment that has created a school that reflects University School’s past, present, and most importantly, its future. “We’ve developed an excellent facility, which not only gives students and faculty state-of-the-art equipment in environmentally friendly buildings in a beautiful setting, but it also establishes a sense of place. This is an atmosphere that encourages students and faculty to thrive during and after school in a safe environment on the NSU campus,” said Chermak. Two media centers are available for students in the Middle and Upper schools. There is also a Mac Media Laboratory, where students interact with software that enhances the classroom experience, and is housed inside the 137,000 square-foot, 750-seat Epstein Center for the Arts. Students also have access to wet and dry art studios, and a professional dance studio. The school’s athletic program has grown under Chermak’s leadership as well, including the addition of football, lacrosse and rowing teams. The Suns Varsity Football Team won its division to become the 2012 State of Florida 3A Champions. Academic and arts programs are also consistently recognized for high achievement.

University School’s speech and debate team won its third consecutive state title in 2013, while four of the school’s visual artists were recognized nationally in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards. Chermak is also proud of his faculty with more than 70 percent of the school’s 181 faculty members holding advanced degrees. “We have leading educators who each day promote all of our students’ abilities to learn, grow and succeed academically, socially and personally.”

“Additionally, University School’s early childhood programs set a foundation for success and a love for learning in a childcentered environment.” Additionally, University School’s early childhood programs set a foundation for success and a love for learning in a childcentered environment. Active learning, personalized instruction, and skilled early childhood teachers who use a combination of developmental theories to design a unique learning program for each child are the hallmarks of University School’s early childhood programs and set it apart from other PreK facilities. Furthermore, in his role as headmaster of University School, Chermak serves as a dean at the university level; a distinction, which he said, allows for the school to be on par with the other schools and colleges at NSU. “We have many collaborative programs with these centers that benefit our students and allow for unparalleled student research opportunities. Because of these educational, fulfilling and unique opportunities, by the time many of our students graduate, they have been fully immersed in a higher educational atmosphere.” While there are many resources available to students who attend University School, Chermak believes that its location on the campus and its collaboration with NSU, the eighth-largest not-for-profit private university in the nation, is a unique advantage. “The fact that we are an integral part of Nova Southeastern University, an outstanding research university that continues to position itself as a premier institution of higher learning, is an affiliation that cannot be underestimated.”

Café Maxx Impeccable dining, unpretentious ambience BY RANDI AILEEN PRESS, DINING DUCHESS

C

afé Maxx is a destination, not just a dining experience. Those who desire impeccable food in a lively yet unpretentious atmosphere will be drawn to this landmark restaurant in Pompano Beach. Darrel Broek greets guests as they enter the main dining area. He has a charm and energy that’s captivating. The same is true of Chef Oliver Saucy, as he moves effortlessly in his kitchen preparing enticing

dishes for patrons in the café. That identical energy radiates throughout the staff. Justin Dever, our server, has been with Café Maxx for more than 13 years. He enthusiastically shares how the chef changes the menu daily, but some items are favorites and remain always. He’s not a typical server. Justin has taken a step beyond to learn specifics on wine, food, and how to educate the diner on what is best to order with a specific entrée. Chef Oliver makes it extraordinarily difficult to


choose between appetizers. They’re all enticing. The fresh chilled Maine Lobster Summer Roll with citrus and sweet chili ponzu is light and delicious. The Slice of Caviar Pie is served with egg, onion, layers of sour cream, and topped with tobiko caviar. It’s wonderful. But there are two must-haves appetizers you won’t want to miss. The Tuna Sashimi Pizza is unique. Served on a fried wonton, this crispy pizza with wasabi cream cheese, ginger, and caviar is outrageous. “Almost every table orders the pizza,” Justin smiles, and now I know why. The most tempting is the Sautéed Hudson Valley Duck Foie Gras. Served with key lime curd, wilted spinach, and orangepomegranate sauce, this is beyond words. The curd almost resembles a bread pudding. Unbelievably delectable! There are many options when ordering at Café Maxx. Soups, salads, pastas, lighter fare (reduced calories, lower carbohydrates and smaller portions), along with other selections that will tempt you. There is something for every palate. When the entrees are served, every plate is a piece of art. The Dark Cherry and Raspberry

Glazed Duck Breasts rest on a double potato and mascarpone au gratin with beans and carrots. The sauce is a mixture between a touch of sweet with the right amount of spice to sneak up on you. The Three Peppercorn Filet Mignon is tender and extraordinary. The steak is prepared spot on and is delicately placed next to the three cheese au gratin potatoes, shallot-thyme compound butter, and natural jus. This is one menu item that is always offered and ordered. A fish dish not to miss is the Lemon Herb Salmon. Perfectly seasoned, flaky and delicious, the salmon is placed on top of ruby and gold beets, sweet potatoes, spinach, and just the right amount of citrus butter. By this time, you are satiated but you cannot miss dessert. Room must be made for pastry chef Bernie Delacruz’s specials and house favorites. I believe in eating desserts always. Life is short and sweets are worth indulging. I also believe that Café Maxx’s Butterscotch Bread Pudding may be one of the best I have ever had in the world. Served with pretzel crumble, caramel drizzle, and vanilla ice cream, you will not be disappointed. The Warm Apple Tart with apple jack caramel, almond frangipane, and cinnamonscented ice cream also rivals the pudding. Also worth mentioning is the Vanilla Bean Crème Brulee. You will love the almond lace cup with pineapple rum caramel sauce and cookies decorating the plate. Café Maxx celebrated its 29th year anniversary last month. Enjoy a simply wonderful dinner or celebrate something special with Darrel and Chef Oliver.
