FROM THE EDITOR

I

met Jim Hammond on Valentine’s Day. It was at a holiday party thrown by a bank vice president in her condo overlooking the Intracoastal in Fort Lauderdale. At such gatherings, I dread the question, “So what do you do for a living?” Most people don’t know what a magazine editor does, and explaining it bores even me. (Don’t get me wrong, I love my job. But telling others about it isn’t fun. Try it yourself: Sum up your career in three sentences. Does it really do your life justice?) Eventually, I sat down at the dining room table next to a grinning bespectacled man with wild blond hair. A woman across the table was in the process of asking him, “So what do you do?” He grinned wider and blurted, “I make puppets!” Silence. “Oh.” More silence. “What kind of puppets?” “All kinds!” he declared before turning the question. “What do you do?” The woman mumbled something and ended the conversation

PUPPETS AND PROFITS YOU DON’T NEED TO STARVE TO BE AN ARTIST

moments later. Which was understandable. What normal career can compete with puppetry? I yearned to ask the question I’m sure the woman wanted to but couldn’t – because it might offend this large and wild-looking baby-faced man: “Can you really make a living making puppets?” The short answer is yes. Jim Hammond is not a starving artist. You can find the long answer on page 34. A few weeks later, I attended a Broward Alliance mixer at Gallery One, a Fort Lauderdale hotel on the Intracoastal not too far from the bank VP’s condo. I met Kimberly Miller, Gallery One’s director of sales and marketing. She had recruited artists to paint

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

during the mixer. I was surprised to learn she curates an art gallery in the hotel – and her guests, especially those from other countries, regularly buy the works. You can read more about Miller’s commitment to the arts – and her business – on page 44. But these two chance encounters made me realize what a misconception I’ve been carrying around since college. Namely, that successful artists have somehow sold out. I have yet to delve deep enough into my psyche to understand where that concept comes from. But I’m sure society is to blame. It’s certainly to blame for the special issue you’re now reading. Welcome to Lifestyle Media’s first (and I hope annual) Arts Issue, where we’ll dispel such silly myths and propel deserving artists every summer. Between now and then, we’re going to cover the arts more intensely, so email me at Michael@lmgfl.com with any intriguing and artistic ideas.

STUDENTS ON STAGE A play from 1958, Leading Ladies, was the big winner at the 2012-13 Cappies – short for the Critics’ Awards Program – at the Broward Center in May.

BROWARD CENTER

FOR THE EXPANDING ARTS

I

n its first two decades, the Broward Center for the Performing Arts remained unchanged while the downtown Fort Lauderdale arts and restaurant district evolved around it. Now it’s in the midst of its first major overhaul, and it’s a big one. One of the Top 10 arts venues in the country as measured by ticket sales, the Broward Center will be unrecognizable to patrons who first stepped inside the dual-theater facility in 1991. Phase 1 was finished last summer, and it added new seats, sound and lighting systems, and a new VIP club level to the main theater. “It’s a beautiful lounge where we’re really offering a new experience,” says Jan Goodheart, the center’s vice president of external affairs. “You arrive one hour earlier than curtain, and there’s a beautiful buffet and open bar. In its first year, it’s been very successful.” Phase 2 isn’t about renovation but construction. The ambitious plans include the addition of the two-story Huizenga Pavilion on the New River, with a bistro on the first floor and a ballroom on the second. It’ll open next spring. Then there’s the Rose Miniaci Arts Education Center on the west side of the building, with a 2,100-square-foot main education space and 3,000 square feet of classroom, coaching, and administrative space. It opens next summer. Best of all, the $55 million renovation has raised $30 million in private donations, Goodheart says. She can’t say this, but we can: Miami-Dade could learn a few things about renovating public spaces from the Broward Center. And Goodheart says the fundraising isn’t over yet, whether it’s “people who might want to put their name on something or people who want to give $10.” Anyone who donates receives a pin in the shape of an exclamation point. For details, call Goodheart at (954) 765-5814.

The comedy scored big for J.P. Taravella High School, raking in eight awards, including Best Play. It was most for the year. Overall, theater students from 14 public and private high schools in Broward and Palm Beach counties won awards. Winners were determined by votes from fellow students and through a weighted peer review voting process. Here’s a list of the winners: Boca Raton Community Comic Actor in a Musical: High School Patrick Boyle (Anything Goes) Female Dancer: Laura Sky Herman Best Song: “Anything Goes” Stage Crew: Kelley Cunningham and Pompano Beach High School Crew (As You Like It) Special Effects/Technology: Male Vocalist: Nicholas Guinta Senior and Co.

HOW TO HAVE A CLASSICAL SUMMER

W

hile Broward County is becoming a year-round place to live and play, it’s still sadly true that much of its culture is seasonal. But for the past 22 years, the Symphony of the Americas – Broward’s only professional orchestra – has hosted Summerfest. It’s an ambitious effort, bringing a different world-renowned European orchestra to South Florida to play nearly a dozen shows in just a few weeks. The 23rd annual Summerfest, sponsored by American Airlines, begins this month and welcomes the I Musici Estensi Chamber Orchestra from Milan, Italy. Select members of the Symphony of the Americas will join in to play the music of Dvorak, Telemann, Purcell, Verdi, and the legendary Argentine composer Piazzolla. There’s also a world premiere by Italian composer and soloist Lorenzo Turchi-Floris, Summerfest’s composer in residence. Tickets range from $25 to $60 depending on the venue and location. For exact prices, check out the websites below. Here’s a list of all the concerts in Broward in July and August...

ORCHIDS AS ART S ome art lovers enjoy a nice still life of a flower vase. Other prefer to grow the flowers.

must DO MUSEUMS THAT AREN’T MAUSOLEUMS Some are big, some are tiny, none are boring

B

e honest. When you hear someone say, “Let’s go to a museum,” you’re probably not thinking, “That’s the most exciting entertainment option I’ve heard today!” But Broward County has museums that are good for more than just field trips for the kids. And even the children’s museums have enough verve to keep parents interested. Here are our Top 5...

01. MUSEUM OF ART FORT LAUDERDALE How has the Internet changed art museums? They’re no longer just for standing in front of two-dimension paintings. Inside this venerable downtown Fort Lauderdale edifice, you can attend wine and food events (our favorite title: “Homage to Fromage”) and sign the kids up for intensive two-week summer arts programs. And you can see art that isn’t what you might expect. Recent exhibits have included works from Andy Warhol and some scary-looking sculptures from New Guinea and Peru. One of the most popular past exhibits featured Princess Diana’s dresses. www.moafl.org

02. MUSEUM OF Discovery & Science Good children’s museums are like good children’s movies: There’s something thrown in for the adults, even if the target audience doesn’t get it. If you’ve ever attended any of the live animal shows or science presentations, you know what we mean. Also fascinating for the older folks: the playful otters and the creepy spiders. Then, of course, there’s the 3D IMAX theater, which shows major-release hits like Man of Steel as well as documentaries about oceans and butterflies. www.mods.org

03. YOUNG at Art

Any honest parent will tell you they’ve also learned a few things venturing through this 55,000-squarefoot flying wedge of a building. (You’ve got to see it

18

JULY 2013

to understand that.) The museum is cleverly split into four “scape” sections, from Greenscapes to Culturescapes. All are interactive. For instance, Artscapes allows you to paint on a cave wall and draw your own Victorian-era self-portrait. www. youngatartmuseum.org

04. CORAL SPRINGS Museum of Art The problem with Broward musuems is their location. Most are east. This one is only a teenager – 16 years old – but it’s literally carved out a niche for itself. The sculpture garden is the big draw here, from Zimbabwe black granite to colorful metal by Romero Britto. www.csmart.org

05. ART & CULTURE Center of Hollywood The smallest museum on this list is also the most eccentric. Located in a former funeral home – the main gallery is where the chapel was – the center has featured everything from a Lego sculpture exhibit to shadowpuppet shows. This is a museum you can feel comfortable visiting in jeans and a T-shirt. www. artandculturecenter.org

must HEAR LOCAL MUSIC ACTS

DAN SWEENEY

W

hen Dan Sweeney began covering local music, it was 2000, and the South Florida scene was for teenagers and twentysomethings. Now, the award-winning critic is 36 years old with two children – and last year, some of his stories were obituaries for local musicians (Dan Hosker of The Holy Terrors and Bobby Johnston of Load). You know you’ve been doing something for a long time when your interview subjects start dying. So Lifestyle asked Sweeney to list five bands that local adults would enjoy hearing live. Here are his Top 5, in no particular order...

20

01. JOEL DASILVA and the Midnight Howl Even after a couple of years with his own band, the Midnight Howl, DaSilva probably remains more well-known for his previous group, the Hep Cat Boo Daddies, with which he played for just over a decade. But where that band trafficked mainly in swinging rockabilly-style rave ups – the name sort of gives away the genre – DaSilva’s work with his new band is much more bluesbased. In fact, the group has already become a leading light of the South Florida blues scene. DaSilva and company reached the semifinals – just one round out from the final competition – of the International Blues Challenge, a nationwide battle of the blues bands held in Memphis. And at a showcase of blues guitar work put on by the South Florida Blues Society on May 26, DaSilva’s group served as the backing band for all the featured guitarists.

02. ALBERT Castiglia

Speaking of blues guitarists, Albert Castiglia has been playing guitar and singing in South Florida since the early 1990s, and served as guitarist for the great harmonica player Junior Wells’ touring band. Now, he occasionally embarks on national tours, and will tour Europe next April, but when he’s not doing all of that, you can catch him at any number of local joints, keeping his hands dirty by playing out like any other band. In fact, June sees the guitarist playing a bunch of gigs from Key West to Boca Raton before leaving South Florida to run around the country throughout the summer festival season. So, catch him this month, or wait until the Legendary Rhythm and Blues Cruise pulls out of Fort Lauderdale in October.

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

03. CRAZY Fingers

Relive the misspent days of your youth by hitting up South Florida’s own Grateful Dead cover band. It seems every major metropolitan area has at least one tribute act keeping the dream alive; there’s even a site, GratefulDeadTributeBands. com, that attempts to catalog every act in the trade. Crazy Fingers is better than most, to the point that if old Deadheads close their eyes at the group’s regular gigs on Sundays at Boston’s on the Beach in Delray or Thursdays at the Funky Biscuit in Boca, they can almost fool themselves into thinking it’s the boys themselves, circa late 1980s or early 1990s.

04. SPAM Allstars

Combining Latin and electronic influences, the Spam Allstars provide a soundtrack to Miami better than any other band in the area. The group, led by DJ Le Spam, includes nine members and has had a regular Thursday gig at the Miami club Hoy Como Ayer since 2001. If you feel the need to move, these Thursday night free-for-alls are the place to be, attracting hip-shaking fans from around the area.

05. CAT Shell

Singer/songwriter Cat Shell has been a force in local music for about half a decade, since the release of her first album, 2007’s Cat’s Outta the Bag. She blends some modern R&B and pop sensibilities with a strong influence from the female jazz crooners of half a century ago, folks like Nina Simone and Etta James, as well as more-modern jazz-inflected singers like Norah Jones and Diana Krall. Her songs share themes with those other chanteuses as well – finding love, losing it, regrets, and hopes.

GALLERY GUIDE

When it comes to supporting the arts in Broward County, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a gallery, a frame shop, and a museum that do it with gusto...

ABO SAN LUCAS,

Mexico also known simply as Cabo, is a great spot for tourists and beach-goers world-wide. What began as a small fishing village is today one of the top tourist destinations filled with fantasy, adventure and 360 days of sunshine! Located at the very tip of the Baja California Peninsula, Cabo is bordered by the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez. The most popular activities involve the water. Cabo is also known as “The Marlin Capital of the world,” as well as “The Aquarium of the World.” With one of the largest reefs in the world the snorkeling and scuba diving are well worth the trip and for the fisherman in you, “Incredible!” If golf is your thing, then you’ve come to the right place. Championship golf courses are both challenging and unbelievably beautiful. High season runs from November to May with the Christmas holidays being the busiest time and you’ll find plenty of spring breakers and families in mid-March. According to Lisa Crawford, Founder/ CEO of SitInMySeats VIP Tickets, Travel & Concierge Services, a stay at Las Ventanas Al Paraiso is your window to paradise. I feel very comfortable recommending one of the most acclaimed resorts ever to our most discerning clientele who visit time and time again and seem to always

capture their first magical moment. Las Ventanas has redefined luxury, pampering, and hospitality. The desert beach hideaway in Los Cabos captivates guests with expansive suites, inspired cuisine and the salon and spa, the resort’s recently unveiled sanctuary of renewal and revitalization. One of our clients recently visited Cabo and requested a private Tequilla tasting paired up with food from a well-renowned Mexican chef. No problem for the Team at SitInMySeats. And what can you say about a sultry Cabo night? “What happens in Cabo, stays in Cabo” the longtime mantra. Club and bar hopping on foot is easy and the lounge music and theme parties draw beautiful people to the wide array of hip international clubs.

Looking at music in a new way How a lazy eye and a clever dad have given country rocker Tommy Dalton his shot at the big time BY BY YE EMILY EMILY MI M ILY YB BLOCH BLOCH LOCH LO CH

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM


Tommy Dalton’s childhood dream was to be a Major League baseball player. The Hollywood native grew up watching the New York Yankees on TV. And in person. “The Yankees did spring training here, so I was always going there and hounding them, getting autographs,” Dalton says. He also played catcher in Hollywood Hills Baseball Little League at Rotary Park. But when he was 15, Dalton literally had trouble keeping his eye on the ball. His doctor told him he had degenerative amblyopia, commonly known as “lazy eye.” It meant his left eye was slightly impaired – and there was no cure. It wouldn’t be noticeable to anyone looking at him, but it would definitely hurt his ability to hit a Major League pitch or field a pop fly. Dalton vividly recalls that conversation with his doctor: “I remember him saying that if I was ever to get hit and lose vision in my good eye, I’d be legally blind and not be able to do certain things – like drive a car. I wanted to be a professional baseball player my whole life, since I was four years old. Then it was like, ‘Wow, what am I going to do now?’” His father, Todd Trombetta, tried cheering up his son by distracting him. He took him to a Goo Goo Dolls concert. “He was really getting into it,” says Trombetta, who stood with his son in the fifth row of the Pompano Beach Amphitheater. Dalton caught a guitar pick tossed into the crowd by frontman Johnny Rzeznik. “I still have that pick,” Dalton says. After the concert, he asked his father for guitar lessons. Trombetta bought him an Ibanez acoustic guitar, and Dalton still has that, too. Now Dalton is poised for his shot at success. This summer, he’s touring in support of his independently released self-titled album, and its first single, “Sweet.” His father is his manager, and he’s doing a few things differently than most aspiring local acts.

1. GO TO SCHOOL Three weeks after giving his teenaged son that guitar, Trombetta booked him his first performances – in middle and elementary schools.

Richie supa and tommy dalton

“It was just me and an acoustic guitar,” Dalton says. “I did career days and talked about drug awareness.” As he gained experience, Dalton graduated to playing shows at the Hollywood Beach Bandshell, Sunfest, and Footy’s Wing Ding. The gigs got bigger and the audiences got older, but the music didn’t change much. “I’ve always liked country,” Dalton says. “I always listened to country. I was always writing the same songs back then as now – very story-type songs, and that’s a lot of what country’s about.” Lesson: Too many musicians play too many nightclubs. Explore every opportunity to play to an audience.

But like his father, Dalton thought differently. He met everyone he could in Nashville, whether they were country artists or not. And that’s where he began collaborating with Richard “Richie” Supa, a songwriter and guitarist recognized for his work with Aerosmith, Pink, and Ozzy Osbourne, among others. Supa was immediately impressed. “He’s an up-and-coming singer, and I thought he was really talented,” he says. “He’s got a great sound and a great look – all the pieces you need to make it in this business.” Supa has written several songs with

2. GET OUT OF TOWN

“I always listened to country. I was always writing the same songs back then as now – very story-type songs, and that’s a lot of what country’s about.”

If you play country music, you eventually have to head to Nashville. It’s almost a law. So in 2009, Dalton moved to the country music capital of the world. He did what many new musical arrivals do. He played on street corners for tips. “Being there, it’s like putting yourself in a fishbowl,” Dalton says. “So many people there are in the music business. It pushes you to be competitive.” Dalton ended up working with award-winning country artists such as Grammy-winning guitarist Brent Mason (who co-produced his album) and singer Jake Owen (who he opened for last year).

Dalton, even lending him a tune he originally intended for Aerosmith lead singer Steven Tyler. It’s called “Oxygen.” “I wrote that with my buddy Brett James, who has written a ton of hits for Kenny Chesney,” Supa says. “We wrote ‘Oxygen’ for Steven back when he was talking about coming to Nashville and

happen. So I played it for Tommy, and he loved it. It clicked.â&#x20AC;? Lesson: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just network with those in your immediate circle. Meet everyone you possibly can.

4. SELL THE SONGS Dalton has an endorsement deal with True Religion brand jeans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because a couple years ago, Trombetta says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;He wrote a song about their jeans called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Damn Jeans.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? The song â&#x20AC;&#x201C; available on YouTube, just search â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dalton Damn Jeansâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even played on Sirius XM Radioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nashville Channel. Emboldened by the True Religion deal, Dalton is attempting something similar with his new single, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sweet.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re actually gonna try and secure a major ice tea company like Arizona who has a peach tea,â&#x20AC;? Tromebtta says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the things I feel Tommy has at his advantage. I feel heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very marketable.â&#x20AC;? Lesson: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to sell what you got.

5. WORK BOTH ENDS

Coincidentally, Supa has a house in Plantation, and Dalton sees his mentor whenever he returns to Broward County â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which is often, because Dalton records here. In fact, his father bought into a recording studio just so he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to keep paying for studio time. Eight years ago, Trombetta became half-owner of SunďŹ&#x201A;ower Studios in downtown Hollywood. It was money well spent, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tommy was able to come in here and work whenever he wanted,â&#x20AC;? Trombetta says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was here all the time, recording and learning the process how to engineer songs.â&#x20AC;? That meant taking his time to polish each song, instead of looking at the clock. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quickly paid for itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were spending a good amount of money recording,â&#x20AC;? Trombetta says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I made the decision, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey we need to be in a situation where we could work at our leisure and not have to pay.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Lesson: Owning is sometimes better than renting.

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done as much as we can on our own,â&#x20AC;? Trombetta says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting out our own record. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting it on the radio. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it all ourselves, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping one of two things happen: Either we make enough noise in Nashville independently and a major label picks him up, or we make enough noise where a South Florida investor will see what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done and come aboard and we can just continue on with our own label.â&#x20AC;? And if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough, Trombetta has no apologies or regrets. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m dad,â&#x20AC;? he says fondly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of parents put a lot of pressure on their kids to follow a certain path, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been the kind of dad whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of their best friend and lets them do whatever it is theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to do. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe in his talent, I believe in his abilities. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very supportive.â&#x20AC;? Lesson: Always lean on family. www.tommydalton.com

Puppet Master

Jim Hammond builds puppets from $10 to $10,000. So is he an artist or a businessman? The answer is yes. By Ryan Cortes P hotos by Downtownphoto/Fort Lauderdale LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | JULY 2013

This puppet, called Tiki Man, isn’t for sale. But you can rent him (and Jim Hammond and other puppets) for a 45-minute show. The cost? Up to $4,000.

Jim Hammond sits alone in his Fort Lauderdale studio, with the lights off save for one lamp on his desk. But he’s not a depressed artist. He’s a savvy businessman. It’s a Saturday night in late May, and he’s part of Art Walk, a monthly open house for the artists who rent space in FAT Village. The unfortunate acronym stands for Flagler Arts & Technology, a four-block artists’ community in downtown Fort Lauderdale, bordered by railroad tracks and Maguires Hill 16, a popular Irish pub. The Art Walks are intended to attract locals to check out struggling artists, who sell their work out of former warehouses now carved into small galleries. But by the time you read this, Hammond will have shuttered his FAT Village studio. He didn’t fail. He succeeded too much. On this summer evening, two couples stroll in – one pushing a stroller. As they gaze at the puppets literally hanging around the studio, the baby starts wailing. Without a pause, Hammond whips around with a puppet called “Tiki Man,” his twofoot creation with bulging eyes, long white teeth, and blue hair.

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM


“You doing all right?” he asks the baby. Well, the puppet is asking. “Dude, it’s so trippy being a baby. Imagine if I was a set of keys being jingled.” He jerks the puppet back and forth. “Jingle, jingle, jingle.” The baby stops crying. The parents are impressed. But they don’t buy Tiki Man. He costs up to $4,000 for a 45-minute outdoor show and he isn’t for sale — he’s only for rent. Hammond custombuilds his creations for companies and commercials. And they’re usually not children’s toys. In fact, Hammond says… “Puppetry has never been just for kids. Give any adult a puppet, and they do one

Jim builds and thinks about it for a staff of people – and he hires people. He has a certain synergy, and it’s rare.” Rare enough that Hammond is the only business of his kind in South Florida. He’s sold and rented puppets since 2009, and he says he’s made money every year – even during this “challenging economy.” “From a financial standpoint, helping people fabricate their work is a better business plan than creating your own work,” he says. “He is the only person that I’ve ever met that does what he specifically does,” says Chuck Loose, owner of a FAT Village screen-

Hammond has many hands helping him, from the president of the South Florida Puppet Guild (top right), to people who just strolled into his studio... of two things: Either the puppets beat each other up or they make out. It’s the core of what we don’t want to talk about – sex and violence.”

This isn’t child’s play Hammond’s puppets have appeared as characters in TV commercials and as props in the Lion King Broadway show. He sells them and even rents them. But he doesn’t do what most people think a puppeteer does: Host a low-rent Muppet-like show for kids all by himself in an elementary school. “A lot of puppeteers, they’ll build a show, book a show, and perform the show. Jim is different,” says Dave Goboff, the president for the last decade of the South Florida Puppet Guild, a group of puppeteers and puppet lovers who meet monthly. “He has a bigger scope, so whereas I might build a show for myself and perform it,

printing company called Iron Forge Press. “I’ve met a few puppeteers, but none of them have a studio or a solid business foundation like Jim.” Last month, Hammond left his 800-square-foot studio in FAT Village for a 8,000-square-foot warehouse in Wilton Manors, where he plans to expand both the size of his business and the size of his puppets. Some of his creations take four people to maneuver. “We’re bursting at the seams,” he told the two couples that night of the last Art Walk as he sat in his old studio. Hammond also needs more room for his employees. He currently has 4-5 parttimers helping him fabricate his creations in any given week. They also help him brainstorm. “I’m a collaborator,” he says. “I don’t want to be a

solo act.” But becoming a puppet businessman is different than being a puppet artist, Hammond learned. “When you first start off, you’re just excited that someone’s buying your product, that someone wants to have your vision as part of their life experience,” he says. “As you move deeper into your career, you realize, ‘Oh man, there’s some hard costs that are involved in the creation of this puppet.’ A $5,000 puppet or $10,000 puppet typically will cost me 40 percent of that in materials and transportation and labor costs.” Hammond admits he gets strange looks when he tells people what he does for a living – and stranger looks when they hear the prices. “It’s not a matter of respect, it’s a matter of surprise, because this is so specific,” Hammond says. “With the mission we have – an entertainment firm that is focused primarily on puppet theatre, puppet fabrication, and puppet design – we’re it in South Florida.” Hammond’s wife, Shelly Bradshaw, doesn’t get the same kinds of questions, because her job – while also in the business of culture – is much easier to grasp. She’s vice president of operations at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Fort Lauderdale. But when she attends business functions or parties with her husband, she hears him asked the same couple of questions: “Is that a job? People do that?” It wasn’t always a job. But he did always do it.

Everything is a puppet Growing up in a small town in southern New York called Hoosick Falls, Hammond didn’t play with toys the way other kids did. A Matchbox car was alive – the headlights were the eyes, the grill was the mouth, and soon enough, the car wasn’t just a car. When he was 8, Hammond began performing puppet shows in his backyard for neighbors, for family, for fun. His puppets were sometimes sticks with rocks for eyeballs. “An object was never an object to me,” he recalls. “I would never walk through the woods and just see trees.” When Hammond was 11, his father was diagnosed with cancer. Tumors at the base of his brain rendered him a quadriplegic. “I remember he had these open wounds at his neck,” Hammond says. “We’d occasionally see the bandages pulled away, and he just had these big holes where they pulled out the tumors.” Hammond’s father died two years later — he was 41. Hammond is now 43.

The puppets on the left? They cost $10,000. The one above? $10. The animated chairs appeared on a local T V commercial for Boca Bargoons, a South Florida fabric company. The creation above, held by Rodriguez and Gerstel, was put together with nothing but items from a dollar store.


“I think it’s complicated for any child to watch a parent suffer,” says his sister Vicky, an administrator for a health foundation in Washington, DC. “And I think his art was an early creative outlet to express himself.” Hammond agrees: “It was tough, but I wouldn’t be the person I am today if I hadn’t gone through it. It was probably therapeutic. I could create little worlds where I could have control and the outcomes could be pretty and the end of the fairy tales could be good.” They were about to get really good.

From Burger King to the Lion King After his father died, the family moved an hour away to Saratoga Springs, where the 16-year-old Hammond worked in a Burger King before landing a job at a nearby amusement park called The Great Escape. It had a puppet theater, and he was a puppeteer. Within a year, he was the puppet theater manager.

For four years, Hammond managed or performed 21 shows a day. It helped pay for college, where he studied performance and production design at SUNY. He got his graduate degree from the University of Connecticut – in puppeteering. It’s a major offered by less than a dozen schools nationwide. Hammond met his wife Shelly in Connecticut, and they coincidentally both got job offers in South Florida, almost at the same time. Shelly became the technical director at the Broward Center, while her husband was hired by the Florida Grand Opera to help with props and production. They knew nothing about South Florida, and they didn’t care. “We were artists with four art degrees between the two of us,” Hammond says. “And it was important to find something so we wouldn’t default on our loans.” In 2003, the touring Broadway production of The Lion King was in town at the Broward Center, and Hammond

applied to work backstage. After that, “I was on the road,” he says. For six and a half years. Sometimes it was months before he saw Shelly again. He says it was “hellacious,” but his wife understood. “It was certainly an upsetting conversation to have,” Shelly says. “We hadn’t been married very long and I’m not sure I was quite prepared for him to take off, but I was thrilled that he was going to be able to pursue his dreams. It was the best way for him to hone his skills.”

The return home In 2009, he finally left The Lion King and returned to South Florida and Shelly. He opened his Puppet Network studio in FAT Village. His success might have surprised others, but not him. “I’m a pain in the ass, man. I’m going to work and work and work to make it happen,” he says with a laugh. Success meant more work than

Last year’s Day of the Dead was more fun than morbid. he could handle, so he had to hire assistants – what he calls “freelance puppeteers,” although some spend more than full-time hours with him. His 26-year-old assistant Luiz Rodriguez says he can work 9 to 5 on “low-production days” – and 9 a.m. to midnight on “high-production days.” He doesn’t mind. “I have no problem coming in here,” he says. “I love it.” Like the other assistants, Rodriguez wasn’t hired from a Monster.com ad. “I literally just wandered into his shop, and I was like, ‘Wow,’” he says. It was during one of those Art Walks five years ago that Rodriguez

chatted with Hammond for an hour. They talked about an event that Hammond adores but makes him no money at all: The annual Day of the Dead, a parade of puppets that will wind through Fort Lauderdale in November. Hammond says the “community event” is inspired by a Mexican holiday of the same name. Rodriguez was born in Mexico and says, “I was weirded out because he was a white dude with long blonde hair trying to do a Mexican festival.” Skeptical, Rodriguez says, “I just had to make sure he knew what he was doing. The great thing is, he respects the religious and cultural aspects [of Mexico] and I was really blown away.” Now settled in his new studio, Hammond is already thinking about his next big project: Puppet Network on TV. “What I would love to do,” he says, “is actually create a television network that is focused entirely on puppet theater and puppetry.” Twenty-four hours of puppets and plays? “Sounds almost as crazy as someone wanting to put cartoons on all day,” he says smiling. “Doesn’t it?” Doubt him at your own peril.

Day of the Dead 2013 On Saturday, Nov. 3, Jim Hammond invites you to his fourth annual puppet parade in honor of the dead. The free event is an ode to Mexican culture. Hammond calls it a “memory for the dead, party for the living.” Last year, nearly 7,000 people showed up in the streets of FAT Village. Hammond expects closer to 10,000 people this year, and he’s expanding the route, which will weave through the downtown Riverwalk district.

RELAY RALLY By Regina Kaza

THE EVENT The first annual Relay Rally brings together 24 Relay for Life teams for one common goal: beating cancer. Relay teams from each city in Broward will meet at Blue Martini at the Galleria Mall to raise some last-minute money for the American Cancer Society. “We’ve been so focus-driven on money and numbers that only positive things can come out of this,” says Lindsay Mapica, Weston Rally’s fundraising chair and Relay Rally’s organizer. Weston Rally raised $238,695.58 last year, the most in its history. Relay for Life’s fundraising year ends the day after this event, and ticket sales will boost each city’s annual donation before the total count. Guests can choose which city to donate their ticket proceeds to, and they enjoy a drink ticket along with some light hors d’oeuvres inside. “It does get competitive,” Mapica says. “But imagine what all cities in Broward can do together.” Mapica is expecting around 150 people for a night filled with silent auctions, raffles, and various prizes to support those battling cancer across the world. THE CAUSE More than a million people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer each year. The American Cancer Society is the premier national nonprofit organization funding research towards finding a cure as well as patient facilities and support programs. Through events like Relay for Life, the Society has helped almost 14 million cancer survivors celebrate more birthdays. Every year, Relay for Life events held at local schools feature a survivors lap, inspirational ceremonies, and a candle-lit walk honoring those who lost their lives to cancer. Each Relay team organizes its own fundraiser to support cancer awareness and research. More than 4 million people in more than 20 countries have annually raised more than $400 million through the Relay For Life movement.

BUSINESS STYLE

CORPORATE & ARTISTIC MUSIC CAN SOOTHE THE SOUL, BUT CAN IT SELL EMPLOYEES ON A COMPANY’S MISSION? story and photos By Michael Koretzky

O

n the first Saturday of last month, 20 Hilton sales managers from around the country met at the Gallery One hotel along the Intracoastal in Fort Lauderdale. Over a lunch of mojo spiced pork loin and shrimp kabobs, they sculpted with Play Doh and wrote a song. And it was all business. These global sales managers flew in from Virginia, Dallas, New York, and Washington, D.C., so they could brainstorm better ways to sell the Hilton brand in Broward County. Kimberly Miller, Gallery One’s sales and marketing director, wined and dined them. But she also wanted to blow their minds. So Miller hired 43-year-old Jeff Jacob to lead a two-hour team-building exercise. He didn’t foist them into awkward role-playing skits or onto a nerve-wracking ropes course. Instead, the Nashville songwriter/guitarist taught these top salespeople how to pen a pop tune. And it was “awesome,” Miller says. “It helps bring different levels of team members together, striving for the same common cause,” Miler says. “A senior leader can learn so much about what their team feels and faces just from the clay-building step of the songwriting process – adults can easily revert to children when need to!” Miller met Jacob through Lois Marino, BBX Capital’s community relations manager in Fort Lauderdale. Marino is also the program manager for Art in the Workplace, which “fuses the arts into the business community by doing teambuilding exercises.” Marino says the idea came from her boss, BBX Capital’s president Jarett Levan. “He’s a big supporter of the arts,” Marino says, “and he’s made it a part of my job.” So Marino’s Art in the Workplace program has hooked up big Broward businesses like BGT Partners and the Stiles Corporation with workshops that include dancing interpretively and making tie-dye bags. “It really does work,” she says. “It takes employees out of their everyday world.” Marino joined the GalleryOne workshop and raved afterward, “That was so much fun! I had to write a song with people I barely knew. But by the end of it, I knew Hilton’s managers and its mission.” Those words are, quite literally, music to Jeff Jacob’s ears. He’s co-founder of The Song Team, a 3-year-old national training firm that uses music to “hit the mental reset button.” This year, he’s on pace to do 30 programs just like GalleryOne’s. The week before he visited Fort Lauderdale, Jacob and his team trained 300 employees at a credit union in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. And when he left Lauderdale, he headed to the University of Indianapolis – revisiting his very first client from January 2011. (Jacob adds with a grin, “We’re starting to get what every speaker needs: repeat business and spinoffs.”)

Other clients have included major corporations like DaVita (one of the nation’s largest kidney care companies) and Emdeon (a major healthcare system provider of revenue and payment management systems). “Healthcare is definitely a growing segment,” Jacob says. The reason is simple: Industries in upheaval, both for good or bad reasons, need to motivate their employees to think differently and quickly. “This is the equivalent of speed dating,” Jacob says. “We’re writing a song real fast.” Unlike traditional training exercises that can take an entire morning, afternoon, or even a day, Jacob wrapped his in two hours. But how does he compare on cost? Jacob doesn’t want to talk price, but he does say, “Our programs are very affordable for small and mid-sized organizations.” Bottom line, he says: Anyone who’s hired a traditional trainer can hire an artistic one. “If you can afford that,” he says. “You can afford this.”


CORPORATE MUSIC MAKING When the Gallery One hotel sought a corporate trainer last month, it hired a Nashville guitarist named Jeff Jacob. His company, The Song Team, leads team-building exercises that work like this...

THE HOOK Jacob speaks with his company contact about the goals of the exercise, working off a 12-question sheet he’s developed. From there, he writes the “hook” of a song, along with the chorus. For GalleryOne, that included, “Fort Lauderdale is more than you see/Each hotel is quite unique/We got shops and we got art/It’s really kinda tough to know where to start/When it comes to our Hilton family.”

THE INTRO

Kim miller

Jacob shows a five-minute video featuring The Beatles and Rolling Stones that ends with the revelation that few hit songs are the work of one person. Jacob told the GalleryOne group that in 2011, the biggest pop hits of that year had “an average of 4.1 songwriters.” Lesson: We all have to work together.

THE PLAY DOH Jacob has learned to mix his media. He divides the room into teams and gives them specific emotions to shape out of Play Doh in 15 minutes. Example: A Gallery One group had to sculpt how they feel on Sunday before having to go to work on Monday. The themes that emerge from those sculpture become the lyrics of the song.

THE WRITING This is the longest and “funnest” part, Jacob says. On a flipboard, the group assembles stanzas. The discussion focuses on the goals and fears of the group. In this case, Hilton sales managers expressed concerns about the lingering perception of Fort Lauderdale as “Fort Liquordale,” a spring break hangout unsuitable for an older and more affluent crowd. Jacob says his job was to help them brainstorm solutions while also writing lyrics. “I’m not trying to dictate,” he says. “I’m trying to collaborate.” For more information on artistic team-building, email Lois Marino at lmarino@bfabroward.org LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | JULY 2013

WHAT ARE THE SUCCESSFUL TRAITS OF SERIAL ENTREPRENEURS? ANDREW CAGNETTA Certified Business Intermediary CEO, Transworld Business Advisors Offices Nationwide 954-772-1122 www.tworld.com ac@tworld.com

Ever wonder why some people seem to always do well in businesses while others fail? I have met many serial entrepreneurs that are perennial winners when buying or starting businesses. We often ask are there worse businesses or worse business owners? Most reply the latter, there are worse business owners. Here are ten of the traits that each of these serial successful entrepreneurs has: 1. They work hard. Sometimes they are the hardest working person in their company. Many times I have seen people outwork others that are smarter. 2. They know how to treat their employees and customers. I have not seen many mean people last in business. At award ceremonies you always see the winner thank their people and clients. You cannot build a big business alone; believe me it helps to be nice first. 3. They personally deal with issues. And they are often not very nice about it. Hard on problems, soft on people. Often they are obsessive about customer service.

56

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

4. They are not afraid to get dirty. They are not afraid to work alongside their employees when the bad stuff hits the fan. Roll up your sleeve kind of people win! 5. They know how to lose. They know when to call it quits, take the loss, admit they’re wrong, and move on from a bad idea or decision. 6. They are never satisfied and often have a tough time acknowledging a win. There is never an end to the game. Constantly pursuing a better way, efficiencies, and not afraid to tweak and experiment. 7. They trust their employees. They delegate well and don’t micromanage. They promote from within and invest in people. They can handle and manage imperfection in performance. 8. They have resources. Sorry to say, it is nearly impossible to start with no money and make

it. Most of the time it takes money to make money! 9. They give back and share their wealth and knowledge. They never forget where they came from, and keep grounded and usually are humble. 10. Finally, they take risk!! You must take risks to win in business. The key to success is to understand your odds and minimize the downside of any endeavor or decision. Of course there are exceptions to these rules. Steve Jobs is an example. However, I can name many of our local entrepreneurs do have the above traits. Wayne Huizenga, Mike Jackson, Mike Maroone, Jim Moran, John Offerdahl, Terry Stiles, Peggy Nordeen, Keith Koenig, and Howard Dvorkin to name a few you might know. In the end, if you want to be successful in business, you need to have many of the above traits. it’s never too late to practice and learn them!

TURN BACK THE CLOCK IN MINUTES! “OFTEN A 1 TREATMENT WOW” …. THE DEEP, FRACTIONAL CO2 MICRO-ABLATIVE LASER The newest advances in Laser Technology have revolutionized “Gold Standard” CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing!! With another new technology Upgrade, we now offer “Multi-Pulse” a Deep CO2 Microablative laser that can safely and precisely remove outer layers of damaged skin and penetrate via millions of microthermal zones to reveal the underlying skin and create brand new skin which is softer, smoother and often dramatically, younger looking. It also stimulates the regeneration of healthy skin underneath (called “Laser Skin Renewal”), for a dramatically youthful and beautiful appearance! This superlative skin resurfacing – rejuvenation procedure will reverse years of sun damage, wrinkles, scars and many other skin imperfections in just minutes. When compared to other forms of laser treatment, the new “Deep” CO2 micro ablative is the new “Gold Standard” for rapid and optimal enhancement in as littleas 1 treatment! Our patients, ranging in age from 13 to 81 say that “The micro ablation removes sun damaged skin and makes it fresher looking; the second part called “bulk heating” improves collagen and elastic fibers deep down that improve deep to moderate wrinkles”. It’s also great for removing all types of scars, safe anywhere on the face, body or hands and we are even using it on stretch marks. By fractioning the laser beam into microscopic beams, a specific portion of the skin is left unharmed, which is more conducive to healing. This fractional method enables cells

to begin healing within 24 hours and the comfortable downtime can be adjusted to fit your busy schedule for 3 to 7 days – versus two months with the original CO2 laser. “The new “Non-Surgical Laser Facelift or Eye Lift” can take years off a person’s appearance and give them better looking skin than someone many years younger,” noted Dr. Aguilera. Our other popular cosmetic procedures include Botox, Dysport and Dermal fillers to replenish the volume of fat loss and bone loss on the face. Fillers take care of the volume and folds while the laser takes care of the skin’s texture, tone and elasticity. Dr. Shino Bay Aguilera is in fact, #1 in Sculptra Aesthetic Treatments in the entire USA!! No one treats more patients with Sculptra Aesthetic and is a Platinum level Top Injector and Physician Trainer for all the major injectables! Dr. Aguilera has trained thousands of physicians and is extremely knowledgeable about the concepts and applications of skin laser and cosmetic injectable technologies. His unique ability to provide patients with a dramatically younger, more energetic look makes him an in-demand cosmetic dermatologist - and as holder of two board certifications and a Fellowship in Dermatology from the American Osteopathic College of Dermatology, an Asst. Professor of Dermatology for 5 Universities and the Before Chief Medical Director

UPLIFTING RESULTS ROGER H. STEWART, M.D. Skin Center 6550 North Federal Hwy., Suite 330 Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308 (954) 903-0332 SkinCenter.com

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

58

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

JULY 2013 | LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM

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. For more information on Ultherapy including “before & after” treatment photos, visit www.skincenter.com. To set up a free consultation with Roger H. Stewart, M.D. to discuss Ultherapy and/or any of a range of treatment options, call the Skin Center team today at (954) 903-0332.

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].

DR. KENNETH WOLINER Board Certified Family Physician 9325 Glades Road, Suite 104 Boca Raton, FL 33434 561-314-0950 holisticfamilymed.com

“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.

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.

give off a Key West vibe. His favorite and prettiest dish is the grilled duck breast with red sauerkraut and apples alongside a goat cheese puree ($26). And his favorite painting? An abstract piece of a jazz musician playing a bugle, priced at $3,000.

Sometimes, art is on the inside. The Grateful Palate is on the end of a small shopping center – next door to a Subway, which is itself next door to a Dough Boys Pizzeria. The clean but nondescript sign on the outside doesn’t signal what’s past the front door: a 55-seat contemporary lounge style dining room with a wine cellar and an open kitchen. That’s because The Gourmet Palate got its start two decades ago as an upscale grocery store specializing in yacht provisions. In 2009, new owners gutted the place and added a living room-like area with couches and coffee tables. Other artsy touches: a decorative colored glass partition, a few granite-top tables, and a row of barstools facing the chef in the open kitchen. And when it comes to serving up artistic dishes, executive chef Hector Lopez favors the braised lamb shank ($29) or pan seared diver scallops ($30). “We treat every guest as a VIP,” he says. “If there’s a little grain of pepper on the plate, it won’t go out. People eat with their eyes first. If it doesn’t look good people won’t want to eat it.”


ARTISTIC MEALS DOWN SOUTH BY RANDI AILEEN PRESS, DINING DUCHESS

Sometimes, a good meal is worth a short drive. Since this is our annual arts issue, here are two of my favorite Miami restaurants that combine classic food with an artistic flair…

Wynwood Kitchen & Bar 2550 NW 2nd Avenue 305-722-8959 www.Wynwoodkitchenandbar.com

Market 17 1850 SE 17th St #109 Fort Lauderdale 954-835-5507 www.market17.net You want ambiance? Artwork? Plating? Pshaw. Market 17 wants to open your eyes to a new dining experience. It’s called Dining in the Dark. “You have dinner in complete darkness,” Executive Chef Lauren DeShields says. “Your senses heighten because of that, and it’s a really fun experience.” Market 17 admits cribbing the idea from Ctaste, an Amsterdam restaurant that invented the concept that’s been replicated around the world. But Market 17 is the only Broward restaurant offering the experience on a regular basis, which means the staff has gotten really good at it. There’s a dedicated “dark room” off the main dining room that seats two to 14. You greet your hostess in the light and discuss any food allergies and diet restrictions. But other than that, this is literally a blind tasting – you’ll be served a number of different tastes without knowing in advance what they are. Your sever will help you “locate and stabilize” your food and drink, and DeShields creates new dishes nightly just for the dark room. The four to eight courses ($75 per person) are filled with texture, are easy to eat, and available with blind wine pairings ($25).

Wynwood Kitchen and Bar (WKB) is Miami’s global-Latino dining destination, featuring graffiti art, “street art-inspired cocktails,” and live music. This is a big space – a warehouse environment with high ceilings covering 5,000 square feet, with 200 seats indoors and out. The interiors have an industrial feel, with dark oak tables surrounded by contemporary gun-metal chairs, comfortable taupe metallic leather banquettes in the dining room, and a leather-topped bar. An outdoor area features colorful chairs and tables surrounded by the murals of Wynwood Walls, a street art park featuring work by some of the world’s most esteemed graffiti artists. In May, WKB launched a series of chef/artist collaborative dinners, and the first one teamed executive chef Miguel Aguilar with Miami graffiti and street art scene artist Santiago Rubino. The weekly music series ranges from jazz quartets to singers/songwriters and DJs.

Barton G, The Restaurant 1427 West Avenue Miami Beach www.bartongtherestaurant.com Barton G. Weiss is Miami’s best-known events-and-culinary creator. His fans adore the creativity, his detractors loathe his excesses. But no one can deny his appeal. At his Miami restaurant – he has another in Los Angeles – your rare tuna might come to your table with a samurai sword stuck to a wooden slab. Your cocktail might have plumes of liquid nitrogen pouring over the edges. Your steak might be served with a 3-foot-long fork. Once you step inside “The Restaurant,” you’re in a lush tropical garden for al fresco dining. The interior cherry and zebra woods. The bar is made of onyx. But this isn’t shtick. The food tastes sublime, even if appearances can be cheerfully over the top. Don’t believe me? Try the “Big Top Cotton Candy” for dessert. LIFESTYLEMAGAZINEGROUP.COM | JULY 2013

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.

STARRY NIGHTS

Markham Park in Sunrise is no secret. The sprawling county park has 10 miles of bike trails, 88 campground hookups, and even a 3.5acre dog park (affectionally known as Barkham Park). But few folks know about the Fox Observatory. It features, and we’re quoting from the South Florida Amateur Astronomers Association, which runs the observatory: “A pair of 16-inch and 14-inch Schmidt-Cassegrains, a Brandon refractor, three Dobson reflectors, and a 12-inch Newtonian.” If you don’t know what any of that means, show up any Saturday night at dusk for a free viewing through those telescopes and an astronomy lesson that’s better than any you’ll find in a book or video. www.sfaaa.com If you prefer to peruse the heavens without peering though a telescope, go to Broward College in Davie. In the middle of campus is the Buehler Planetarium, which boasts that its Zeiss M 1015 projector and its modern digital audiovisual equipment makes it “one of the most advanced planetariums in South Florida.” For $6, you can see amazing shows like “Cosmic Colors,” which dramatically shows you the night sky is more than black and white. www.iloveplanets.com

WARS AND CARS

It’s not a name that rolls off the tongue: The Naval Air Station Fort Lauderdale Museum. But it’s the only military museum in the county, and it features an anti-aircraft gun, bombs, uniforms, and models of ships and planes. Check out the “Broward Goes to War” exhibit through the month of August. www. nasflmuseum.com Speaking of WWII, the Fort Lauderdale Antique Car Museum features Packards from before the Big One. We’re talking a 1920 limo, a 1909 speedster, and a 1930 fire engine. Why Packard? Because as the museum staff will tell you, they’re “some of the finest automobiles in the world,” although they haven’t been made since 1958. Never heard of Packard? You should see one up close. www.antiquecarmuseum.org
