Lifestyle Letter

Men of Substance

I

t’s June and the perfect time to say thank you to all the men in our lives. Dads, husbands, brothers, sons, best friends.

While I ponder the men in my life who have meant so much, I’m feeling particularly sentimental about my friend and mentor Stuart, whom I met some 20-plus years ago on a Washington D.C. metro bus that ran from the Pentagon to our respective downtown jobs. Stuart today is 91 years old, still drives every day to his oh-soimportant job at the U.S. State Department, and still indulges in the risks and rewards that have led him to become somewhat of a real estate magnate. Most notably, he still devotes himself every day to his adoring family, friends and colleagues. 

Despite his busy life, Stuart has always had time for me, and for my family. He was there the day I started (and quit) my first job, the day I got married, the day we bought our first house, the day my first daughter Taryn was born. Stuart, who wrote my recommendation letter for grad school, and whom  years later is writing  letters for  grownup Taryn's applications to  colleges. Stuart, who has believed in me through my  entrepreneurial pursuits, evolving dreams, successes and failures, and professional (and personal) reinventions. I dedicate this month to you, Stuart, and to all the other Stuarts out there – all the men who are in each of our lives, whom we couldn’t live without. Well, we could, but the world would be a less joyful place. It is in this spirit of gratitude that we celebrate our fine community's Notable Men of 2017.  This year’s men of distinction include  innovators, disruptors and leaders from a range of industries. From The Sportsman and The Architect, to The Artisan and The Visionary. We have The Literary Thought Leader, The Restauranteur and The Entrepreneur/Professional Fireman. Like many of the wonderful men I know, these fine men who do so much for our community in the 'burbs and beyond were glad to help do some mentoring themselves, by sharing their personal recipes for success, life balance, innovation, longevity  and more. Please join me in celebrating this year's Notable Men and celebrating all things men... one of the many Joys of June!

Organizers expect to surpass the participation rate and fundraising this year. “It really takes organizations like Tour de Ladies to assist us and be a part of the fight against domestic violence to help us achieve our mission,” said Jennifer Walker, Executive Director of the Crisis Center. “We need this kind of support to build a strong, safe and healthy community.” Tour de Ladies is a nonprofit, and is a fund of the Douglas County Community Foundation.

ROSENBERG’S BAGELS TO OPEN SECOND LOCATION AT STANLEY MARKETPLACE Rosenberg's Bagels and Delicatessen will open the doors of its highly anticipated second location at Stanley Marketplace (2501 Dallas Street) in the Stapleton neighborhood of Aurora, Colorado on Saturday, May 20. “Connecting with our community is a major priority for our team,” said Joshua Pollack, owner of Rosenberg’s. “We’ve loved being a part of the neighborhood in Five Points and look forward to feeding the people of Stapleton and Aurora with the same quality eats and hospitality that our customers have come to know and love.”  The newest outpost of the beloved New York-style Jewish delicatessen will offer a comprehensive menu featuring all of Rosenberg’s signature items, including freshly baked bagels, house-cured fish, hot breakfast sandwiches, homemade deli meats, salads, spreads and sides. Additionally, Rosenberg’s at Stanley Marketplace will have expanded retail offerings, with a focus on kosher and bulk goods, such as artisanal matzah, frozen Rosenberg’s latkes and lunchmeat by-the-pound. Rosenberg’s at Stanley Marketplace will maintain the same hours of operation as its location in Five Points, open Tuesday through Su nday from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. The new restaurant seats up to 75 guests and features an expansive wraparound patio.   In addition to Rosenberg’s, Pollack has several other projects underway around the Greater Denver area, including Famous Original Ray’s Pizza at the 715 Club in Five Points, opening soon; Lou’s Italian Deli, slated to debut in RiNo this fall; as well as a joining of forces with The Bagel Store, an iconic, kosher bakery in Southeast Denver. StanleyMarketPlace.com 12

While there have been many changes in the book industry – the development of e-books, the

rise of e-commerce, different distribution models, much more competition – the recipe for success is

the same as it has always been: Identify what our customer wants, and provide it better than anyone else can. In our case that means creating a warm, inviting environment; a robust calendar of interesting events; a large and well curated selection of books and book-related items; and the best staff... anywhere. We hope we're succeeding on all fronts, but we'll leave it to our customers to let us know.

WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR STAYING VISIONARY AND GETTING OTHERS EXCITED ABOUT YOUR VISION?

"When I dream of new ideas, I only consider the possibilities, and I ignore the constraints. I free my mind to make the world whatever I dream. I stay motivated from within, taking inspiration from others, but not judging myself against others. I know what I love and I do what I love. This always seems to attract the right people first. I feed off of the energy and support to keep pushing until the rest feel like they’re missing out. When executing a vision, I look for ways to be collaborative and help others. Success is a non-zero sum game. I believe that I can win while helping others win at the same time."

BRECKENRIDGE BOURBON ON THE ROCKS Doug Flin Seven Stones Cemetery

WHAT'S YOUR RECIPE FOR STAYING VISIONARY AND THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX?

"With an industry steeped in tradition, it doesn’t take much to step outside the box… the challenge is creating meaningful connections and environments that allow families to transition their way through the loss and grief of a loved one in their own special way. Having a background in landscape architecture and design, having had the opportunity to work with hundreds of cemeteries throughout the country, and having walked in the shoes of loss and grief, my recipe consists of a little Colorado bourbon (on the rocks) and a simmering cast iron pot of: · Creative people – you must surround yourself with talent · Other industries – look outside your core to see how others create uplifting experiences · Customer experiences – listen, observe and always put yourself in their shoes to find what’s meaningful to them. They touch every aspect of your business. · Status quo – never be satisfied and always test new ideas · Patience – never give up · Core beliefs – stay true to what got you where you are and never forget about the needs and demands of the ever-changing customer  · Past flavor (from the cast iron pot) – savor the organic creativity which was more prevalent in this industry 100 plus years ago."

"Minturn Anglers would not be the fly shop and outfitter it is without the goal-oriented staff we have working for us in the shop and on the water. Our staff truly loves to help people catch fish! There seem to be more and more fly shops and guide services popping up in Denver and the Vail Valley every year. We all sell the same darned stuff, so the best way we've found to maintain our strong brand and reputation is to offer the best service in Colorado - whether in shop or on the water. We work our tails off to show our loyal customer base an incredible fishing experience, whether that’s with our guides or on a DIY excursion. We’re blessed to make a living going fishing, and we never take it for granted that we live in a state that cares so much about its natural resources. It may be "just fishing,” but by making sure every in-shop and on-water encounter is a life-long memory for our customers, we’re sure you’ll keep seeing those Minturn Anglers stickers plastered all over Colorado!"

WHAT’S YOUR RECIPE FOR STANDING APART FROM THE CROWD?

"Standing out isn’t always easy. We offer hand-crafted, single batch sauces and seasonings made from the freshest local, all natural, gluten-free ingredients. But so do many of the companies on the shelf next to us. So how do we stand out? I hear the word passion kicked around a lot, and while I think it’s overused, I DO believe in the power of doing something you love. Do it with integrity and honesty. Be honest with yourself, your products and your services. Surround yourself with a team that does the same. And listen, listen, listen to both your team and your customers! Offer them both something fresh, new and exciting on a regular basis. A consistent focus on honesty, integrity, listening and innovation will help build your reputation and brand recognition in a crowded market. ‘You can’t build a reputation on what you are going to do.’ – Henry Ford. Get out there and do it, and have fun while you do it!"

MARINO'S PIZZERIA MARINO'S FOOD IS THE REAL DEAL, AND SO IS MARINO.

Highlands Ranch Lifestyle | June 2017


M

arino’s Pizzeria in Littleton is exactly

what locals hunt for: that nestled-in-the-neighborhood, mom-and-pop place that relies upon word-of-mouth to attract a following to its authentic Italian cuisine. The “mom and pop” of Marino’s are he and his wife,  Angela. Marino is the maestro cook and Angela delights in managing the operations of the restaurant. “I would not be here if it was not for her,” Marino says of his wife. “It’s my dream, she supports me.” His passion for pizza started when he was just five. He watched in wonder while his grandparents had their own wood-burning oven built, and Marino’s dreams were ignited. “I loved it so much,” he says with a wide grin beneath his characteristic mustache. “I was watching my next-door neighbor build the ovens. I thought, ‘what can I get out of that thing?’” So he learned to construct his own ovens. “I build my ovens to fit around the pizza, not my pizza around my oven,” he says with the discrimination of a craftsman. He “stole the simplicity of good food” from his grandmother, he says. “ There’s no ranch dressing, no Alfredo in Marino’s food,” he laughs. “Probably the most important thing about my pizza is the flour—imported from Italy.” Marino serves  me a red wine called Terredora Aglianico to sip while I wait. He tells me it is made in a vineyard where he stomped grapes from the time he was a boy. CONTINUED >

“I WOULD NOT BE HERE IF IT WAS NOT FOR HER,” MARINO SAYS OF HIS WIFE. “IT’S MY DREAM, SHE SUPPORTS ME.”

“You cannot get that wine for that price anywhere else,” he says, noting his connections to the winery. The first delight to emerge from Marino’s oven is an appetizer, brussels sprouts immersed in bacon pieces. Flaky and, oh, so satisfying.  He then delivers the Gnocchi (nyō-kee) with meatballs. The potato pasta is served with marinara sauce, zesty and light. Marino’s favorite pizza on the menu is the Bella, a beauty made of spinach, roasted garlic, sausage and olive oil. Simple and simply amazing.  The finale is the Four Point Calzone, a gorgeous mixture of supple crust, Italian sausage and prosciutto, ricotta, mozzarella and shaved parmiggiano cheeses. If I had to choose a favorite, without question, this is it.  But no mattar what you choose on the menu, the authenticity and warmth of Marino’s will draw you in as a devotee to this fresh Italian cuisine. Marino’s opens at 5 p.m. every day (except on Mondays—they’re closed). It’s best to call a day in advance for Friday or Saturday seating (303) 9550373. You can also reserve a table online at MarinosPizzeria.us.

WILL AND JUDY 401(k) AND IRA SPECIALISTS! “ Until I met Will and Judy, I did not realize the gravity of The 10-Year Window. Baby Boomers, like me, with tax-deferred money in 401(k)s and IRAs are totally unprepared for the tax crisis coming in retirement. Will and Judy helped me make vital strategic changes to my financial future. Now when I retire, I’m going to enjoy tax-exempt income instead of facing catastrophic taxes. I solidly advocate Will and Judy.”
