Happy March

MARCH 2017 PUBLISHER

M

y sweet mom used to remind us, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Growing up in Michigan, we hoped and prayed that was true. By March, we’d had it with shoveling, muddy icicles mucking up wheel wells, freezing grey days and the lack of sunshine. Here in Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, March will mostly come in like a lamb and go out like a soft fluffy chick. Our mild winter (“winter”) has left me longing for cold days made for big pots of chili and fireside chats. Instead, we’ve grilled every weekend, sipped gin and tonics right through February and spent afternoons chatting on the front porch. Not bad at all!

Whatever you’re cooking this month, I hope you’ll gather your favorite people around the table and give thanks for good health and good food. We have so many places to dine right here near home (should you not feel like peeling, slicing or dicing) and hope you’ll share your favorites on our Facebook page. We like Alon's for breakfast....lunch and dinner. There are so many gorgeous sweets in the bakery, we can't stop at one. That's why we'd  head to Burn Boot Camp to make it all worthwhile! Eat up, work hard, give thanks!

several prestigious honors in recent years, including having received the Spirit of Suzi Bass Award, as well as being a two-time recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Challenge America Grant. This production is ideal for all ages. Jerry’s Habima Theatre, a program of the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA), is produced under the auspices of the MJCCA’s Blonder Family Department for Special Needs, and the MJCCA’s Arts + Culture Department. Each year, together with local professional actors from the community, Jerry’s Habima Theatre performers (ages 18+) present a Broadway musical. This year, the MJCCA will honor Susie Davidow for her outstanding 16 years as Director of the MJCCA’s Blonder Family Department for Special Needs. Davidow plans to retire this year. “Working at the MJCCA, in particular with the Blonder Department and its jewel Jerry’s Habima Theatre for the past 16 years,

exceeded all of my expectations, allowing me to meld my love of Judaism with my passion for enriching the lives of people with special needs,” explained Davidow. “Having experienced firsthand the respect and affirmation that the Habima cast receives each year, I am very optimistic for the future generations and how they will treat people with special needs.” “I am so appreciative to the MJCCA leadership and to the Blonder family for embracing me, and I am grateful to the participants for always giving me their unconditional love,” said Davidow. “I can’t wait to see them shine in this year’s Habima production; my last as the director of the department.” ABOUT THE SHOW

way, she becomes friends with the Scarecrow, Tinman, and Lion. Together, the group defeats a wicked witch and a whimsical wizard, while finding the power of friendship, magic, and courage to achieve their dreams. This classic tale is sure to inspire, entertain, and remind us all that there's no place like home. JERRY’S HABIMA THEATRE CO-CHAIRS

Mona Shuman and Rachel Fox Weitz will co-chair Jerry’s Habima Theatre’s 24th anniversary production. “Having been involved with this remarkable theater for several years, I am still overwhelmed by the magnitude of emotions that are felt by the actors, their families, and the audiences,” explained Shuman. “I am awed each time I see a Jerry’s Habima Theatre performance, and I leave every show with a huge smile on my face.” “What I have always found to be so powerful is when I see these actors come alive on stage, without the fear of not being accepted,” added Shuman. “The audience allows them just to be themselves, and for these actors who turn their disabilities into abilities night after night, the affirmation and the applause are priceless.” “This year is my first serving as a Jerry’s Habima Theatre Co-Chair, although I have been sitting in the Habima audience watching the shows since I was a little girl,” said

Weitz. “Having been a part of this special theater as a patron and a supporter, I look forward to being a part of what happens behind the scenes as well.” “The participants of this unique theater company achieve new levels of self-confidence from this remarkable experience,” continued Weitz. “I am certain that this delightful, family-friendly performance of Wizard of Oz will inspire and entertain each and every Habima Theatre-goer.”

he Sandy Springs-based Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance is set to host another spectacular soiree at the Delta Flight Museum with

its seventh annual Shaken, Not Stirred Gala, on Saturday, March 11. All proceeds from the event support the organization’s statewide education and awareness efforts and community outreach programs.  Last year’s gala drew 700 attendees and raised almost $250,000.  The GOCA team hopes to raise that bar even higher this year with a dazzling night in store including dinner created by Les Dames d'Escoffier International - Atlanta Chapter Chefs, specialty cocktails, dancing, casino games, tributes and live and silent auctions.  Attire is black tie-optional, and festivities kick off at 6:30 p.m. with a VIP reception starting at 6 p.m.   Christine Pullara, host of WXIA-TV’s “Atlanta & Company,” returns as emcee for the evening with entertainment provided by the Celebrity All Star Band.  Guests of honor at the gala are two very special women – Amie Moore, whose battle with ovarian cancer tragically ended at the age of 23, and Emily Coughlin, who was diagnosed at 14 years old and is now a junior at the University of Georgia studying cancer research.   Partners of the Shaken, Not Stirred Gala, which is produced by Sean

O’Keefe Events and presented by Northside Hospital Cancer Institute, include Deoleo, Snyder’s-Lance, Kroger, United Distributing, Tito’s, Gallo and Les Dames d’Escoffier International – Atlanta Chapter and GA Grown.

Caryn Kroll of Sean O'Keefe Events, the producers of this year's Shaken, Not Stirred Event March 11.


“It’s a privilege to help GOCA each year with the Shaken, Not Stirred Gala, which serves as the Southeast’s premier ovarian cancer awareness event,” comments Caryn Kroll, Sandy Springs resident and Vice President of Sean O’Keefe Events. “Not only does it honor and celebrate the women in our community battling this elusive and deadly disease, such as my grandmother who passed away from ovarian cancer, it raises vital funds to support them along their journey.  You can really feel spirits lifted and a sense of hope and camaraderie in the air during such a magical night.”      The community is invited to support the cause by purchasing individual tickets to attend the event at ShakenNotStirredGala.com.  Sponsorship opportunities are available as well.  Anyone unable to attend the gala, but still interested in contributing, can donate online or bid online in the gala’s fabulous silent auction, which includes jewelry, a British Virgin Island Sailing Charter, a Zulu Nyala African Safari and many other travel experiences.  For more information or to get involved further with GOCA, please visit GAOvarianCancer.org or call 404-255-1337.    The mission of the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA), a 501c-3 non-profit, is to increase awareness and educate Georgia’s women of all ages, their families and the healthcare community about the risks and symptoms leading to early detection.  GOCA serves the state of Georgia with public outreach programs, education and awareness efforts, and fundraising events.  With no sure way of predicting ovarian cancer and no single screening test to identify it at the earlier, pre-symptomatic stages, awareness and education are an urgent priority for all women in order to protect themselves from late-stage ovarian cancer.

e love it when road trips have a theme and our recent trip to Nashville and Bowling Green certainly had it — Cars! Just south of Nashville is the Nissan Smyrna Vehicle Assembly Plant where free tours are offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Altima, Maxima, LEAF, Pathfinder, Rogue and Infiniti QX60 are manufactured here. In fact, about 640,000 vehicles a year are manufactured, making it the highest-volume auto plant in North America. On the hour-long tour you’ll see various stages of the manufacturing process from beginning when the individual parts and panels are stamped from huge coils of steel to the finish when vehicles go through the final inspections.

Johnny Cash Museum is full of treasures


Dymaxion (Replica) 1933

Helicron 1932

From the fresh off the assembly line to the historic is the nearby Lane Museum. This is one of the few museums in the U.S. to specialize in European cars and houses more than 150 cars that date back to the 1920. These are not your typical vintage cars. Some cars come with two heads, two engines or three wheels. One even has a propeller. The Lane Museum is certainly worthy of a stop. It costs $12 for adults; $8 for seniors and $3 for kids 6 to 17. Nashville is one of our favorite weekend getaways. It’s a four-hour easy drive and we usually stay downtown but instead opted to go about a mile away in midtown, near Vanderbilt University. We found a fabulous boutique hotel, The Hutton Hotel, which features 247 rooms and 52 luxury suites, all with hi-tech amenities, custom-designed furnishing, sleep-inducing bedding and a dream bathroom. There’s a fabulous spa, gym, and restaurant, The 1808 Grille, and is pet and environmentally friendly. We actually walked back to the hotel from a Predators’ hockey game and it was a reasonable walk. The Hutton House will also chauffeur you in the house van or Telsa. We go to Nashville every winter to attend at least one Predators’ game but we always try to visit one new museum or eatery and revisit some of the oldies but goodies. A trip to the Country Music Hall of Fame is a must, not only because it represents what Nashville is all about, but that they change exhibits all the time. We went to the Johnny Cash Museum for the first time and saw his costumes, guitars, influences and those who came up with him such as Elvis and Jerry Lee Lewis.

Walking around the Hutton Hotel we noticed a long line outside of a chicken restaurant that didn’t end until the place closed. Little did we know that we had stumbled upon one of Nashville’s most famous hot chicken places — Hattie B’s. Eating at Hattie B’s is a commitment of time. We stood in line (in the pouring rain) for about 45 minutes. Once you order, you stand around waiting for a table to open, another 15 minutes. Then you wait maybe another half hour for the chicken to arrive. But it’s worth it. We ordered the platter with half a bird with two sides. One of us ordered the chicken with medium heat, which burned ... still don’t know how we survived the HOT. Hats off to those who order the  Damn Hot and Shut the Cluck Up Hot. We then went north for about an hour to Bowling Green, home of the Corvette.  Bowling Green is one of those small American cities that often gets overlook but shouldn’t. Our first stop would have been to the Lost River Cave, a walking and boat experience through a seven-mile cave system, but after a few rainy days, the cave was flooded. There are a lot of franchise hotel options and the Hilton Garden Inn was perfect with a really terrific restaurant and bar. We wasted no time going to the National Corvette Museum that features more than 80 cars, a kid’s section and the Corvette Cafe, whose food is surprisingly good. Tickets are $10 adults, $8 seniors; $5 youth (6-16), And, for those looking for the sinkhole that swallowed up eight Corvettes in 2014, it’s been covered over. Nearby is the  Bowling Green Assembly Plant and its one-hour walking tour. Like the Nissan tour it shows hard workers putting together beautiful cars. American craftsmen at its best. Before leaving Bowling Green, we stopped at Chaney’s Dairy Barn where the ice cream comes from cows a few feet away. Freshest at its best. A trip to Nashville and Bowling Green combines music, food, history and most of all cars. It’s an easy drive and an enjoyable lesson about an industry segment that keeps the country and the world, literally, going full speed ahead.
