the art of selection
S TA F F & C O N T R I B U T O R S
When I was Finnegan McDevitt’s age, I would beg my parents to stop at the country store in Greenville, New York. Why? They had rows upon rows of glass jars jam-packed with penny candies — that’s why. Two quarters were all I needed to begin a mouth-watering tour de sweet. Ok… two quarters AND at least a half-hour, because the only thing better than eating candy was plucking my favorites, one-by-one, from those glass vessels. I would make every cent count and walk away with enough rock candy, licorice pipes and root beer barrels to elicit warnings of an impending stomach ache. When faced with so many wonderful options, it’s plain for even a six year old to see — there is an art to the selection of just about anything. And that brings us back to Finnegan. The handsome first grader on this month’s cover was selected by Carroll ISD from more than 90 applicants to be a member of the district’s Bond Builders program. The recognition — and his personal style — made him one of our top choices for our fifth annual Tastemakers feature which starts on page 44. Speaking of selection, did you know that just one in five artists who apply are accepted by the professional jury to show their work at this month’s Art in the Square? The show’s professional jury selected 155 artists from nearly 800 applications. I’m sure it was a daunting task — but my six-year-old self may disagree.

OVERBOARD IN THEATERS APRIL 13 A New Take on an Old Classic
NEW GIRL, SEASON 7 FOX APRIL 10 Who’s That Girl? It’s Jess! Fans will bid a sad farewell to characters they have come to know and love over the past six seasons. While the seventh season is sure to be bittersweet, it also promises all of the laughs and hilarity of previous episodes. The show jumps forward three years from the end of season six but will still center on the faithful quintet of friends: Jess (Zooey Deschanel), Nick (Jake Johnson), Winston (Lamorne Morris), Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and CeCe (Hannah Simone). Their story wraps up with a shortened season, as the Season seven premiere kicks off on April 10 and the last episode airs on May 15. If the thought of a final chapter makes you feel blue, head over to Netflix and laugh it off with the whole crew in earlier seasons.

The 1987 classic “Overboard” is getting a new twist in the upcoming remake. This time, the trauma-induced amnesia strikes a male character, Leonardo (Eugenio Derbez). A selfish, rich playboy, Leonardo’s life changes after falling off his yacht and waking up in the hospital. Kate (Anna Farris), an employee whom he had treated badly in the past, picks him up under the guise of his wife. She is a single mother of three daughters, so she figures she could use the extra help while also helping karma. The amusing premise is quite similar to the original film, but viewers will now get a fun plot twist with an amnesia-stricken man versus the original ’80s victim: Joanna Stayton (Goldie Hawn).

THE PILLARS OF
XERISCAPING BY AS H L E Y M A D O N N A
ith an increased concern about drought and the human impact on our ecosystem, xeriscaping – often called zeroscaping – has blossomed over the past few years. Deriving meaning from the Latin root for dry, this landscape undertaking is all about ditching lush lawns for a more minimalistic approach. While greenery has its place in the world, xeriscape experts believe this trend is on the rise because it’s easier on the environment and requires minimal maintenance. You too can bring this approach to your home by learning more about the pillars of xeriscaping. Say goodbye to days spent mowing the lawn and replanting seasonal buds and hello to a year-round property investment.
WAT E R C O N S E R VAT I O N
O HERO SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM
Water preservation stands at the core of this movement. While lawn maintenance might not be your first cut when looking at ways to reduce your water usage, the gallons that are circulated around your home have a direct daily effect on the community’s environment. According to the EPA, outdoor water use accounts for more than 30 percent of a household’s total consumption. And that number can climb to as much as 60 percent in more arid areas like Tarrant County. Instead of pumping out water to sustain labored landscaping, a xeriscaping plan can reduce a family’s water use by 50 to 75 percent. APR 18 • 19
“Xeriscaping means your plants and lawn need less water. By using less water, your water bill will go down and you will relieve the stress put on our water system,” Southlake’s environmental coordinator Ashley Carlisle says. “If Southlake residents use less water, that means we don't have to purchase as much water from the City of Fort Worth. So water conservation really is a win-win situation.” 20 • APR 18
Because native plants can adjust to less frequent watering and the hotter temperatures that hit Southlake, you should purposefully place items that need more water near an appropriate irrigation system, like a drip-irrigation system, to avoid overwatering the entire space. “You don’t get that evaporation that comes with traditional sprinklers with a drip-irrigation system,” Calloway’s Garden Center & Nursery Southlake manager Kimberly Evans says. “It’s also just easier because it waters the ground slowly. It’s not necessary, but it definitely helps.”
REDUCTION OF TURF AREAS A quick drive around town will show just how many green lawns stand back to back in Southlake neighborhoods. But that unnecessary open space is creating more work than it may be worth. Instead of rolling out turf to cover every inch of your front and backyard, use minimal grass space around your home. It can still be used for both functional and visual appeal, but it doesn’t need to be the foundation for the rest of your landscaping. Use turf to line your walkways or for a purposeful play location for your family, and leave the rest of the space open for more creative opportunities. A nice gravel or stone section will add a new texture into the space and make your other colors pop in comparison. And while you are being more tactful about your SOUTHLAKESTYLE MAGAZINE
lawn approach, find the right seed mix to create a drought-tolerate environment. There are plenty of eco-friendly alternatives to choose from that will still provide that sharp green hue without needing to be watered daily. “When you start designing, take a step back from your house and see what draws your eye first,” Evans says. “See how much space you are dealing with and start with the backdrop first.”
I N C O R P O R AT I O N O F D R O U G H T - R E S I S TA N T PLANTS Finding the appropriate plants for your home may sound daunting or limiting, but they will save you time and money in the long run. Whether you want to plant flowerbeds by your house or provide shade to your front windows, there are plenty of native trees, shrubs, plants and flowers you can include into your xeriscaping design. And while you are exploring your options, be purposeful about your plot planning. By considering the natural contours and drainage patterns of the space, you can create the most indigenous pattern for walkways, turf designs and shrubbery. This will also help you place plants that have high-watering needs near similar items and plants that need less frequent watering closer together to ensure everything gets the right level of moisture. You can find the right plants for you by using resources like Texas Agricultural Extension Service from The Texas A&M University System’s Xeriscape: Landscape Water Conservation report when shopping for new landscaping items. “Texas is blessed with an abundance of beautiful native plants from which to choose,” according to the report. “Most require less water and fertilizer and have fewer pest problems than non-adapted exotic plants that have been introduced into Texas landscapes.” These industry professionals have found native items like autumn sage, Central Texas sage and white rain lily perform well in the North Central Texas region. “It’s pretty easy to go indigenous in SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM
Texas. You just need to find the right plants that can withstand the heat,” Evans says. “And you can still find pieces that put out some really great showy flowers and have a range of color.”
SIMPLISTIC MAINTENANCE While xeriscaping promises low maintenance, the upkeep that ensures the quality of this landscaping design is critical. To keep your plants healthy, make sure there is a proper hydration and draining system that your lawn can feed on. You also may want to test your soil for its pH levels to ensure it has the minerals necessary to support your landscaping designs. When you do add in a new plant, cover the open soil with a few inches of mulch, like compost, leaves or gravel. This will help keep the soil moist and bring that smaller amount of water directly to the right plant. Mulch will need to be replaced as the plant continues to grow and more water is circulated throughout your lawn. Also removing weeds that may be lurking in this mulch will help ensure the water is going to the right source. Plus, it will help keep your exterior lines clean and make your lawn look more sophisticated. “A lot of people think that low maintenance means no maintenance, which is not the case,” Evans says. “The goal is to use plants that need less work, so you only have to water them once or twice a week. They are still growing things. They need some water.” APR 18 • 21

SOUTHLAKE DEPARTMENTS TEAM UP WITH THE JOY PROJECT Throughout the month of March, the Southlake police and fire departments partnered up with The Joy Project to collect bunnies and bears to benefit patients and families in local children’s hospitals.

Haley Whatley started The Joy Project back in 2000 by collecting stuffed animals for the children at Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth. The group has collected more than 50,000 bunnies and bears over the last 17 years. LET’S CHALK ABOUT IT Everyone loves Southlake Town Square, and on March 13, some of its biggest fans made it a bit more colorful.

RUN4ELISE EVENT RETURNS FOR A SECOND YEAR On April 7, the 2018 Elise Cerami Memorial Scholarship Winners were announced in conjunction with a 5K/1 Mile fun run event honoring the life of its namesake. Elise Cerami was Southlake Carroll student who tragically passed away during a club swim practice in 2016. Since then, the Swim4Elise Foundation has been working to promote water safety and work to reduce fatal drownings. The foundation fulfills this mission by providing outreach programs and awarding scholarships to swimmers committed to both excellence and safety in their sport. Run4Elise raises proceeds for the foundation and scholarship fund. In addition, critical water safety resources were provided to Run4Elise participants, along with finisher medals to commemorate their achievements. Both the 5K and 1-mile fun run/walk offered a downhill finish and were family-friendly. Strollers were welcome. AU PAIRS AND THEIR HOST FAMILIES TO CRAFT FOR A CAUSE Local host families and au pairs are invited to Lonesome Dove Park on April 15 to make board books. These homemade book will be donated to the Kids First Foundation. The event kicks off at 11:30 a.m. and allows au pairs and families to mingle. Families are asked to bring a side or dessert, while au pairs are asked to bring a traditional dish from their home country. Cultural Care, an au pair agency, sponsors Kids First Foundation. If you have questions about the event or would like more information on au pair programs, please visit Nstovall.AuPairNews.com.

VALIANT ANESTHESIA In Tarrant County, You Can Choose Your Anesthesiologist – Make Sure You Choose Valiant
n preparation for a procedure, many patients fail to realize their choices. Most notably, the majority of practices and hospitals in Tarrant County allow you to choose who provides anesthesia. And when given the choice, wouldn’t you want to know who is providing such a crucial service? “Typically patients don’t know that they have any say in their anesthesiologist at all,” says Dr. Randy Robbins, 32 • APR 18
a founding partner and President of Valiant Anesthesia. “The only question they may ask is whether they’re in network or not, but they truly can choose.” Valiant Anesthesia provides quality care that both practitioners and patients appreciate. Anyone is welcome to call with questions, even before booking a Valiant anesthesia provider. Once a patient has selected Valiant, they can expect to receive a call from their provider the evening before surgery. This courtesy call allows patients to ask questions and mentally prepare for the procedure. Patients have another chance to talk to providers the morning of surgery. By the time they head to the operating room, patients know exactly what to expect. SOUTHLAKESTYLE MAGAZINE
“Valiant providers are patient-focused with a surgical mentality,” Dr. Robbins says. “We believe in efficiency. We want to provide the highest quality of care in the most efficient manner, for patients, surgeons and hospitals. We really try to cater to the individual needs of every patient.” According to Dr. Robbins, patients in many cities do not have a choice of anesthesiologist. In these cases, hospitals are contracted with a single provider and that group provides the anesthesia. “That’s the great thing about living in our community – you actually do have a choice the majority of the time,” Dr. Robbins says. When patients choose Valiant, patients, surgeons and administration will notice the high quality of care. Dr. Robbins attributes
extra efforts to ensure that parents understand the entire perioperative process. Valiant anesthesiologists will make sure that the children are also adequately prepared and knowledgeable of the process, without sharing details that could frighten them. Pain management is an area that the team at Valiant prides themselves in. They acknowledge that every pain condition is as different as every patient. The entire practice of board certified physicians at Valiant have had acute pain management training during residency and understands the needs of patients dealing with pain. According to Dr. Robbins, providers aim to manage the pain in such a way that the anesthetic process could lower the need for narcotics. It is not a stretch to say that Valiant has you covered from head to toe. With their advanced care in neurological procedures, Valiant is well-equipped in specialty areas like spine and neurological surgery. In orthopedic surgery,
That’s the great thing about living in our community - you actually do have a choice in anesthesia the majority of the time! the company’s efficiency in part to the hiring process. Valiant hires experienced, mature anesthesiologists, instead of always relying on providers fresh out of residency. The senior team members at Valiant pride themselves on selecting entrepreneurial, independent minded providers. “We want patients and surgeons to see the difference the anesthesiologist can make for them,” Dr. Robbins says. Valiant offers a number of specialties, including bariatric and orthopedic anesthesia as well as ENT, neurological and cardiovascular care. The providers at Valiant offer years of collective experience and expertise in all aspects of anesthetic care. Many of these anesthesiologists have specialty training is certain areas, so patients can rest assured that they are in the best hands. No matter what your case is as a patient, Valiant has a reliable provider who will make everything as comfortable as possible. This even extends to children, as Valiant offers pediatric anesthesia. The providers at Valiant know that surgery can be stressful for children as well as parents, so they take
Valiant provides augmented postoperative pain control utilizing long acting nerve blocks in addition to medications. You name the procedure and odds are, Valiant has a provider who is well acquainted with it. “Most importantly, Valiant started on a foundation of faith and integrity,” Dr. Robbins adds. “We believe that always doing the right thing will lead to success in medicine and our value has to come from the care we provide our patients.” Clearly, the quality of care and values held at Valiant are working: Valiant started in 2013 with 2 providers and now has 17. “We’ve been very blessed and have grown 850 percent in our first five years of existence,” Dr. Robbins says. Valiant providers are also heavily involved in their respective communities and churches throughout the metroplex. Remember, you have a choice in anesthesia make the call and choose Valiant!

pring is here, which means we can finally go back to enjoying warm nights outside with loved ones.

With the comfort of a fire pit and the sophistication of Jay Gatsby, the Fayette Fire Table is the hottest outdoor centerpiece on the market. The modernistic table acts as a stunning focal point that will transform your patio into a romantic getaway while also acting as a main backyard feature for entertaining. What else can transform a snug reading spot into a vibrant party in the blink of an eye? It is crafted with durable Envirostone – an organic, heat-resistant material made to withstand extreme tempeatures from gas heating products. So, it is substancial enough to handle the heat without causing any safety hazards.
The stress-free product comes with an in-home installation, so it will be set up properly by one of Frontgate’s professionals. All you need to do after is hook up the commerical-grade connector hose to a propane tank, flip the battery-operated ignition and watch the table come to life. The table has a raw concrete finish that easily matches with your other patio pieces. And it comes with a glass guard keeping the lava rocks well-contained to the middle of the table. This creates a wide rim that can safely be used to hold glasses, plates or other small items. To play with the table’s glow, change out the fireglass for a different color. Frontgate has a variety of hues that will excite both your kids and your girlfriends. Get ready to gather outside to watch the flames emerge out of the concrete surface. You’ll never want to leave your backyard again after upgrading to the Fayette Fire Table.

EmmaKate FEW Style has shaped EmmaKate Few’s life. She started modeling early and met an older model who was involved in the pageant process. After cheering her on at a competition, EmmaKate wanted to try it out for herself. In junior high, she competed in her first pageant and soon after walked away with the “Miss Georgia High School” title. That led her to the Miss High School America competition, where she received first runner up. She took a break from pageantry to focus on her modeling, academics and journalism. But after starting school at SMU, she decided to sign up for the Miss Southlake competition. With that win, EmmaKate is now heading to Miss Texas in June. With her platform, she has been able to give back to those in need. She is a national spokesperson for Soles4Souls, a non-profit that distributes shoes and clothing around the world. She’s also collected more than 15,000 pairs of shoes over the past six years. “I think it’s very easy for all of us, myself included, to take for granted many of the things that we have that others elsewhere don’t: electricity, running water, access to education and shoes,” EmmaKate says. “There is little I can do about the others, but I can help collect shoes.” And while this falls right in line with EmmaKate’s line of interest, it also helps solve serious problems. “Shoelessness encourages disease, discourages employability and hampers the ability of a child in the third world to attend school,” EmmaKate explains. You can find EmmaKate at Southlake’s community events, on the big screen in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy or on the jumbotron at SMU games – where she’s a sideline reporter. But wherever she goes, you know it will be in style.

Known for his loud chef’s coats, Ted Bilsky of Scratch Kitchen never needs a nametag in Southlake. When he caters an event, it is pretty common for people to recognize the chef before recognizing his delicious food. "They may not remember the name of my business, but they see my chef's coat and they recognize me,’” Ted says. “It has become my calling card and trademark." Splashes of color aside, Ted has been hard at work, and in his words “disrupting the catering industry of Northeast Tarrant County.” Scratch Kitchen was founded three years ago when his oldest son Colby graduated from Texas A&M University. Disillusioned by the corporate world of cubicles and desk jobs, Colby pitched the idea of a catering company to Ted. “Six months into it we found our lifelong passion and the rest is history,” Ted says. What started as a small storefront in Southlake offering take-out meals bloomed into three-locations with a full catering service. And as any Southlake event-goer knows, the food speaks for itself. For those who haven’t tried Scratch Kitchen’s delicious dishes, the business’ growth is proof of its quality. Last year, the company grew 65 percent from 2016. According to Ted, 2018 is off to a great start. "The common theme is people say 'Gosh, you're everywhere,’” Ted chuckles. Part of his almost omnipresence comes from his constant willingness to serve his community. Scratch Kitchen caters city events, Art in the Square, chamber events, Meet the Mayor, CISD events and more. This year, Ted has been catering local nonprofit GRACE’s board meetings free of charge. “We give back profusely and whether it's paid for or it is free, it's the same level of quality, period,” Ted says.

Finnegan McDEVITT “What do you want to be when you grow up?” The quintessential question is not lost on the Rockenbaugh first grader as he takes a few spins on an office chair. “A superintendent,” Finnegan McDevitt says matter-of-factly. If that doesn’t pan out for him, he has a solid backup plan: professional golfer. Considering that the six-year-old is already actively involved with Carroll ISD and golf, he could have a good shot at either. Finnegan is a Bond Builder for the district. Earlier this year, CISD created a program that allows selected students to partner with the district and act as spokespeople for projects affiliated with the bond that passed last May. Or, in Finnegan’s words: "We tell what is happening." Bond Builders were selected through a rigorous interview process. Carroll ISD received over 90 audition tapes from hopeful students who were then narrowed down to semi-finalists. As a semi-finalist, Finnegan showed up to his interview dressed to impress with an ensemble completed by a bow tie and lapel pin. While perhaps not the first choice of most first graders, the outfit wasn’t a stretch for the six year old. "Bowties are my favorite because they're fancy!" Finnegan says. Needless to say, Finnegan nailed his interview and was one of 23 students selected as Bond Builders. The program is still in its early stages, as are many bond projects. Even so, Finnegan already knows his favorite part of being a Bond Builder. “We get to wear our green hardhats,” he says excitedly. Finnegan loves showing his Dragon Pride. It’s not uncommon to see him rocking Dragon green Chuck Taylors or a Carroll ISD pin. He looks forward to Bond Builder meetings because it’s an opportunity to dress up.
When Julie’s son, Dave, enrolled in Carroll ISD, she was looking for a way to get involved in the community. So she joined Southlake’s Women’s Club. Now, eight years later, she has served on the board twice as programs chair and was named last year’s "Member of the Year." And she continues to serve in her new role as the group’s 2018-2019 president. “Southlake Women’s Club is a group of amazing, giving women. They are the people that you want to surround yourself with,” Julie says. “It was a great way to make friends.” Julie also has served as co-chair for the Art in the Square VIP Party, décor chair for the Southlake Chamber Women’s Empowerment luncheon and décor chair for the 2017/2018 CEC Love and Hope Gala, so it’s safe to say a lot of her time is dedicated to city events. And that’s all on top of her busy career. Julie and her husband own Sterling Renovations & Design, a luxury home remodeling firm with an internal interior styling team. She takes the time to meet with each of her clients to build a relationship with them to achieve their dream home renovation. And while her work keeps her days filled, she says she takes time to give back in these roles to stay grounded. “Giving back helps me feel well-rounded in my life,” Julie says. Plus, she says her team helps make her job easier. Their team of two has grown with the addition of seven employees, including their daughter, Catherine, who acts as an interior stylist/CAD designer. “I have a great team,” Julie says. “Everyone is so knowledgeable in their own skill set, which helps things run smoothly.” Through it all, Julie helps make Southlake shine by assisting in its different community events, which helps build up that homey spirit that keeps so many people in town. “It’s a great community, and that’s really the city’s draw,” Julie says. “Once people move here, they just never leave because of that small-town feel.”

Chris BROWN Chris Brown’s style is meant to withstand the heat of his vigorous daily responsibilities. And this Southlake firefighter is particularly interested in what his coworkers are wearing by keeping a close eye on his department’s apparel. Chris was born and raised in Denison, and he joined the Southlake Fire Department 13 years ago. He was looking for something that would challenge him, keep him active and let him serve others. “I have a love for helping people,” Chris says. “We generally get people at their worst, and we get to go in and help them.” Most recently, he was honored with his department’s Director’s Award during the City of Southlake’s annual employee appreciation celebration. He was chosen because of his strong work ethic and quality all while keeping a positive attitude while on the job. This man in uniform has been in charge of ensuring the quality of his team’s bunker gear for seven years. He oversees the annual inspection of everything from their gloves to their jackets to their boots to their helmets, on top of the inspection and cleaning that comes after any team members come out of a fire. “We all have different projects that we take over,” Chris says. “And this is the one that fell in my lap. The man who did it before kind of took me under his wing before he retired, and I’ve done it since then.” This is all on top of his regular duties that come with being a local firefighter. And those alone definitely keep him on his toes. “Every day is different because no call is the same,” Chris says. “I mean, in what other role can you tear something down and then get thanked for it?”

Shaken vs. Stirred BRANCH OUT AT TWIGS BISTRO AND MARTINI BAR
J TWIGS BISTRO AND MARTINI BAR 5289 Marathon Ave. Fort Worth 817.764.0025 TwigsBistro.com
62 • APR 18
ames Bond may like his martinis shaken, but the masterminds behind Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar are sure stirring things up in Fort Worth with their West Coast-based restaurant. Twigs opened up their first Texas location in The Shops at Clearfork last December and have already made a name for themselves among locals. With its sophisticated dining room, comfortable bar top and alluring patio, this is the kind of date spot that’s worth the drive. “Twigs stands out because of how you feel when you are there,” explains Trevor Blackwell, president of Twigs Bistro and Martini Bar. “The atmosphere is unique, fun and inviting. Plus, we have great food and drinks at reasonable prices.“
After walking by the see-through fireplace, grab a chair at the wrap-around bar to try out one of the bistro’s signature concoctions. With an extensive martini menu, everyone can find something to enjoy. For an easy-to-drink cocktail that will pair well with your entrée, order the Cucumber Crush, made with Tito’s Handmade vodka, Hpnotiq liqueur, muddled limes and cucumber. Or for a martini that packs some heat, go for the Jalapeno Cilantro Margatini, made with muddled jalapenos, oranges, lemons, limes and cilantro then combined with Lunazul Tequila, triple sec and sour and served with a salted rim. For a twist on a classic, try out the Ultimate Lemon Drop, made with Citron vodka and triple sec then shaken with fresh
LOCALFLAVOR review muddled citrus mix and served with a sugared rim. For a flirty and fruity flavor profile, order it as a Strawberry Lemon Drop. The options seem limitless. “Our cocktail program is pushing the limits and evolving as we see what our guests want,” Blackwell says. Then make your way to one of the bistro’s sleek dining tables to watch entrees come out hot from the kitchen. After glancing at a few signature entrée dishes like the Pesto Margherita Chicken – a pair of pesto-encrusted chicken breasts stacked with mozzarella, tomato, chive sour cream, mashed potatoes and pesto cream – you’ll see presentation is everything. With a serving of seasonal vegetables on the side and balsamic glaze on top, this dish looks as good as it tastes. And the cheesy Crab Mac and Cheese, made with fresh blue crab meat, shallots, smoked bacon, goat cheese, cheddar and jack cheese baked in a garlic cream sauce with cavatappi pasta and finished with toasted bread crumbs, tomatoes and chives, is just as irresistible as you would think. “Our culinary team has put together a menu that is focused on providing great value with some unique and fun dishes,” Blackwell says. “Our objective being to design a menu that provides variety while also being a little adventurous.” While the restaurant does have its classics available at other locations spread along the Western coast, its Texas menu does offer new items to their diners. “We took some of our classic Twigs dishes and put a little bit of a southern twist on them,” Blackwell says. If you’d rather have something you can split with your significant other or your kids, then you are in luck with the 12-inch, handmade pizzas. While they have great classics, like Margherita, daring pizza lovers should try out the Polynesian Pizza, made with mango chili sauce, shredded Kalua pork, red onions, bacon, pineapple, mozzarella and Mama Lil’s peppers. You may think all those bold flavors would fight each other when brought together, but they create this unique orchestra of synchronized tastes that keep each bite interesting. Gluten-free diners should rejoice because they can also enjoy several of these scrumptious sensations, like Fig & Prosciutto Flatbread – a gluten-free artisan flatbread topped with gorgonzola cream sauce, mozzarella cheese, black mission figs and strips of prosciutto. There are also plenty of kid-friendly options like pint-sized pizzas, mac and cheese and Oodles of Noodles – pasta with butter and Parmesan cheese. If you’ve left room for dessert, which is a necessity, try out The Sticky Cookie – a soft double chocolate chunk cookie served over vanilla ice cream, drizzled with chocolate and caramel sauces and topped with whipped cream. It’s indulgent flavors are just begging to be paired with another sweet treat, like the Chocolate Kiss martini, made with vanilla vodka, Irish cream, coffee liqueur, crème de cocoa and garnished with shaved chocolate. With a variety of drink and dinner options, there’s no better place to branch out at than Twigs.

Pizzas Upon Pizzas Delucca Gaucho Pizza Serves Up An Extensive Assortment of Handcrafted Pies
DELUCCA GAUCHO PIZZA 2001 W. Southlake Blvd., Suite 103 682.477.4040 Delucca.com
64 • APR 18
Life is too short to choose one pizza topping. So instead of settling for one pie, treat the pizza lover in you to a wide variety of unique combinations at Delucca Gaucho Pizza. This is not your ordinary pizzeria. The Rodizo de Pizza concept has been a staple in south Brazil, and it may remind you of one of the churrascaria steakhouses known for passing around endless servings of roasted meats. Sit back, enjoy a charcuterie, antipasto dish and a few other starters then turn your card over to the green to start the fun. Their friendly servers will float around the room carrying different pizzas directly out of their wood-fired ovens. For one fixed price of $18.95, diners have an unlimited supply of slices to choose from. Husband-and-wife duo Evandro Caregnato and Didi Mallmann opened the doors of this dynamic pizzeria last month, but this is by far their first taste of the culinary industry. Both have years of experience working for a large churrascaria chain and helped expand the restaurant group on an international scale. They saw a need in the area for a similar concept that acted as an instrumental dining option in their home country. “We went to pizzerias like this every weekend back in Brazil,” Didi said. “There is no better place to gather with friends and have a great time.” While diners will see classic pies like their cheese and pepperoni options, patrons will come back for their vast selection of gourmet pizzas. For something a bit more unexpected, try a slice of the Chicken Tikka Masala Pizza, which features roasted chicken breast simmered in a masala sauce made with fresh tomatoes, Indian spices, cream and coconut milk and is topped with hand-pulled mozzarella cheese. Or, try their Turkish Lamb and Mint Pizza, which features minced lamb meat seasoned with sumac, lemon zest and Middle Eastern spices that is topped with a red onion marinate with lemon juice and fresh mint and hand-pulled mozzarella. For a seafood option, order their Sautéed Shrimp and Fontina Pizza – which is topped with shrimp sautéed with garlic, butter, dried peppers and lemon juice and finished with fresh parsley and fontina cheese. Save room for dessert because their sweet selections, like their Italian Nutella, Brie and Apricot Marmalade, Blackberries and Honey Mascarpone and Flambe Bananas with Dulce de Leche, are too indulgent to pass up. As soon as you walk into the bustling restaurant, you will feel at home. Its sleek interior and fine details creates a warm yet elegant aesthetic that the city has craved for a while. It’s the perfect spot for a date night getaway or a fun way to treat the kids to an elevated culinary experience. Because who can get enough pizza, right?

Beautiful RELISH IN THE SEASON WITH A FRUITY COCKTAIL With temperatures rising, birds chirping and locals flocking to local patios, it’s official – spring fever has taken over Southlake. Sip your way into the season with a fruity drink, like Sushi Zushi’s Blackberry Smash. The signature cocktail, beautifully presented in a Collins glass, gives guests a hint of spring with its subtly sweet flavors. But the berry’s natural tartness provides a crisp finish that makes it so easy to drink. By marrying fresh juices with a bit of bubbles, this mixed drink will keep your pallet refreshed and leave you wanting more.
INSTRUCTIONS: In a mixing tin, muddle the blackberries, vodka and simple syrup. Add squeezed lime wedges and ice. Shake and pour into a Collins glass and add ice on top. Top off with half soda and half Sprite.

BOARDINGPASS day trip
Head for the Hills WINE AND GOOD TIMES ARE ONLY A DAY TRIP AWAY
pring has sprung, and it’s time to take advantage of the limited season in which temperatures stay sub-100. When it comes to taking in the natural beauty of Texas, there is arguably no better place to do so than the Hill Country. Rolling hills, cedar trees mingling with prickly pear cacti and, if the timing is right, seas of bluebonnets await you. This is true for Fredericksburg, but with the added bonus of dozens of wineries. Enjoy a gorgeous drive down winding country roads, book a bed and breakfast and have a memorable weekend without leaving the great state of Texas. Whether you’re looking for family fun or a romantic getaway, this small town caters to both.
70 • APR 18
Wineries Fredericksburg’s economy is practically fueled by wine. Bed and breakfast spots boast connections to wine tour companies and it is not uncommon to see limos roll in and out of this small town, en route to two or three vineyards. It has become both a bachelorette party paradise and romantic escape. Let someone else do all of the planning, coordinating and, most importantly, the driving by booking a wine tour. If you prefer a more independent route, make sure to have a designated driver. No matter how you choose to visit the wineries, here are a few you can’t miss. For the perfect, peaceful view of luscious vineyards, head to Hilmy Cellars. The back porch tables are by far the best seats in the house. Their cabernet sauvignon isn’t bad either. For a more upbeat scene, stop by Fat Ass Winery. They offer flights of flavored wines that probably shouldn’t taste good, but somehow do. And yes, there is a real donkey there to greet you.
BOARDINGPASS day trip Hiking While it’s still cool out, scramble to the top of Enchanted Rock for a view that will take your breath away – if the steep climb didn’t already. While the peak of the iconic granite dome is the most popular attraction, Enchanted Rock State Natural Area has so much more to offer. Test your endurance by descending Enchanted Rock and heading up the jagged rocks of Turkey Peak or the puzzle-pieced granite boulders of Little Rock. If increasing elevation is not your thing, there are trails that loop around each monolithic feature. If you are visiting on a holiday or weekend, make sure to arrive early. The park opens at 8 a.m., but due to a limited capacity, can close to new visitors as early as 9 a.m. There are electronic signs on the way there to inform hiking-hopefuls of any closures. You can also follow the official Twitter account, @GoEnchantedRock, for updates on the natural area. Summit trails will also be shut down in the event of rain, as the smooth granite can become dangerously slick. If you need a plan B, Pedernales Falls State Park is about an hour away, and it’s definitely worth the drive.
Shopping and Dining Downtown is the gem of Fredericksburg. The cutest boutique and amazing food are secondary to the overall atmosphere of hospitality. No one is in a hurry – in a good way. Stroll down Main Street and duck into the variety of adorable boutiques full of items you never knew you needed. For the spice-lover, head to Rustlin’ Rob’s. Every sauce imaginable is out and waiting to be sampled. Stocked with hot sauces, BBQ sauces, jams, spreads, marinades and more, this store is a haven for foodies. Stock up for your next at-home spa day at It’s aGlow. The peaceful shop has gorgeous collections of honeycomb calcite candle covers and other decor. When it comes to good eats, this little downtown strip does not disappoint. Shopping and savoring intertwine at Vaudeville off of Main Street. A gourmet menu is served on weekend evenings from 5 to 9 p.m. Serving featured entree such as Duck Confit with dijon potatoes, spring greens and a raspberry gastrique, Vaudeville is sure to thrill. Venture onto Llano Street for a hole-in-the-wall Italian joint that will never disappoint. Pasta Bella is pretty small, so be prepared to wait. Once you are seated, you will find that the time was more than worth it. Save room for dessert because cute little coffee shops line Main Street and offer a fair share of sweet treats!

ROY RIZWAN IS GENTLY TRANSFORMING PERSONAL STYLES, ONE CLIENT AT A TIME
or some, fashion can be intimidating. There are risks to be taken and comfort zones to be pushed out of. No man does that better than Roy Rizwan. For almost seven years, he has served the area from his storefront in Southlake Town Square. Walk into Zar Clothier and you’ll immediately be greeted with a smile and a frighteningly accurate size estimation. Roy doesn’t need to ask for you pant, shoe or dress size. He knows it the moment you walk in.
I CHOSE TO OPEN ZAR CLOTHIER IN SOUTHLAKE WHEN.... all of our Dallas location customers from Westlake and Southlake would come to us and tell us that we needed to move closer. I thought about it and thought, 'You know, why not?'. It was a big difference when I moved here. The people here are very nice. I TAKE PRIDE IN BEING… very good to our customers. We tell them what looks good and does not look good on their body types. We teach them how to wear things. The main goal is to dress customers with one item at a time. We are very honest about what looks good on people. I know without being told what size clients wear and what will look good on their body type. After all, I've been in this business for 27 years. Before Zar, I used to work for Hugo Boss for 11 years and Bernini before that. I AM FROM... Pakistan. In our culture, you become a doctor or lawyer only. I came to school in the United States in 1991, and I changed my major from law to fashion. My dad did not approve of that, but I just did it because I love what I do. I enjoyed fashion school and it just went really well from then on. I wanted to do what makes me happy, not just what makes my dad happy. THE STORE COLLECTION IS INSPIRED BY... what is in. If I see something in GQ Magazine, I buy it. I travel all over the world to see what is in, and then bring a taste of Texas. Dallas is not like New York or California or Chicago. I bring back pieces and incorporate what looks good. For example, in New York, everyone wears black. I try to bring that but add something different to make things pop. When you come into my store, you don't see just navy or black suits. It's all about plaid, patterns, anything.
STYLISTICALLY, SOUTHLAKE MEN ARE… old-school people, but we are changing that. We see a lot of pleated pants and men wearing one size bigger than they need to. The average Southlake man takes care of his health really well, so we don't have to worry about that. We see navy jackets with khaki pants, and we change that to plaid jackets with jeans. We change their shoes from black shoes to cognac. Whatever we put on the customers ends up getting them a lot of compliments. Once they get those compliments, they come back and really start to trust our judgement. We change their style step by step. We don't change it 100 degrees right away because that would be too much for their comfort levels. WOMEN IN SOUTHLAKE... live in Lululemon and David Lerner all day long. So I change their lifestyle. We give them fashion pieces for when they go out with their girlfriends or even Central Market. We just change their style here and there, but not too much. Like a nice, clean pair of jeans and retro shirt. Something that looks a little different from the ordinary. IF SOMEBODY ASKS FOR A DONATION... I'm there. If I do charity, I do it from the heart. I help with Art in the Square regularly. Whatever this community needs, I'm there for them all the way. It's great to offer good customer service, but for me, charity is the most important thing. If anybody needs anything from us, I never say no. The only thing I don't do anymore is parties. I'm not as young as I used to be, so after work I just spend time wife my family. They are top priority to me. I HAVE THE BEST… family in the world and I always smile when I talk about them. I have two beautiful daughters. One is 18 years old and one is 21 years old. My wife is a personal trainer and we have been married for 25 years. I'll love my wife until death. I'm blessed. All the blessings from God, I have them.

DALLAS GOLD & SILVER EXCHANGE Your Go-To for Buying and Selling New and ‘Pre-Loved’ Fine Jewelry
he sign out front proclaims “Dallas Gold & Silver.” But perhaps they need a bigger sign. Because when you walk into the store on the northwest corner of Southlake Boulevard and Kimball Avenue, you’ll find a whole lot more: An ever-changing collection of designer jewelry, both new and vintage, at astonishing discounts. Beautiful diamonds in exquisitely-crafted settings. Rolex watches. Valuable coins and collectibles. And expert appraisers who know the precious metal and gemstone markets, and deliver the best value for their customers. “A lot of people come in for the bullion,” says store manager Marc Cerrato, referring to the precious metals - gold, silver, platinum and palladium - that many investors buy and sell as part of their portfolios. “But then they’re surprised to find a high-end jewelry store, and they’re really surprised to find what good deals we have.” The Southlake store is one of four stores operated locally by Dallas Gold & Silver, which has been serving the DFW area for more than four decades. The flagship location is at LBJ Freeway and Preston Road in Dallas, and others are in Euless and Grand Prairie. They buy everything containing precious metals, from broken jewelry to sterling silver flatware, as well as jewelry, fine watches and precious stones. “There’s no obligation,” says Cerrato, who is both GIA certified and an Accredited Jewelry Professional. “Sometimes people are just curious what something is worth, and that’s fine. We can verify if the jewelry is genuine, and pay a very fair price so they’ll keep coming back.” On the sales side, Dallas Gold & Silver acts as a wholesaler, buying first-quality overstocks and closeouts, with famous designer names like David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpel. “We don’t mark it up like the big box stores,” Cerrato says. “We simply have the best bargains in the business. If you’re getting engaged, you’ll get twice the ring at half the price.” Reselling Rolex watches is a Dallas Gold & Silver specialty, and each timepiece comes with a two-year warranty.
We have the best bargains in the business. You’ll get twice the ring at half the price. With the way Dallas Gold & Silver does business, the Southlake store needs to be a regular stop in your shopping circuit. The dynamic collection has something new to discover every day, and the terrific deals ensure that nothing stays in the store very long.

WH AT ?
s she flips through pages of five different homemade photo books, Nikki Stovall starts to get a little emotional. Each book was made for, or in the case of one, by previous au pairs. Page after page reveals fun times had by the Stovall family with young women from across the globe. It is clear as Nikki thumbs through the albums that while these women can only be a part of the program for a maximum of two years, they easily became a part of the family.
84 â€˘ APR 18
“I’ve had an au pair for as long as I can remember, my favorite part is learning their different languages.” Ryne Stovall, age 12 But before we get too ahead of ourselves, we know you may be wondering “what is an au pair?” Nikki has been faced with that question many times herself. “A lot of people think that I’m bringing in these super expensive, foreign nannies,” she says. There is some truth to that but it has quite a few misconceptions wrapped in as well. Au pairs come to the United States on a J-1, or Exchange Visitor, Visa. This visa is granted to individuals coming to the U.S. for work- or study-based exchange programs. Au pairs must live with their host family for a minimum of 12 months and have the option to stay up to a year longer. In the Stovall family’s case, almost all of the au pairs – they have had seven – have opted to stay longer. Before au pairs are matched with families, they go through a series of interviews. This is not just for the family’s benefit. Currently, the Stovalls are hosting Katie Holmes – an au pair from South Africa. She says the interview process really helped her feel comfortable when choosing her host family. "[Nikki] has a very detailed interview process, but that is what I appreciated about her,” Katie says. “She was so open about everything and asked very important questions. It made me feel like she was genuinely interested in getting to know me.” Katie isn’t alone in her sentiments. Nikki knows she doesn’t give a softball interview. SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM
“A lot of the girls have said that it is easier to get into the CIA than to be my au pair,” Nikki laughs. But the process must be working, because the only au pair that didn’t opt for an extended visa wanted to stay but couldn’t. In addition to only being allowed to stay for a maximum of two years, au pairs must be at least 18 and no older than 26 years old. For many busy parents, the program is probably sounding too good to be true. Or you are thinking, “but at what cost?” Au pairs are paid a weekly stipend, but it is only about $200 per week. All in all, hosting an au pair costs an average of $1,579 per month. The best part? That is per family, not per child. However, even though au pairs live with host families, they are only legally allowed to work 45 hours per week, in addition to completing six credit hours of schooling while here. The program aims to be mutually beneficial for au pairs and hosts families, and according to the Stovall family, it definitely is. “I’ve had an au pair for as long as I can remember,” says Ryne Stovall, age 12. “My favorite part is learning their different languages.” All three Stovall kids happily agree: they love their au pairs. “I like them because they are more energetic than my mom and dad, so I get to play outside more,” says Tori Stovall, age 7. Her older sister echoes these sentiments. APR 18 • 85
“You can play games and be silly,” 9-year-old Carly Stovall says. All three children are incredibly active. Tori goes to swim classes, soccer and dance while Ryne is involved in basketball, football and baseball. Carly – who, according to her little sister is the busiest of the bunch – plays volleyball and softball in addition to gym and dance. The lists of activities are enough to make anyone’s head spin, and that is why Nikki swears by her au pairs. Katie has a busy life of her own as well. When she is not taking care of the Stovall trio, she attends a class at the King’s University to fulfill her schooling requirement within the au pair program. It was there that she bonded with a fellow South African au pair. "I feel very at home here,” she says. “Having a South African friend helps too because I hear the accent and we can trade stories." While the culture shock was fairly minimal according to Katie, homesickness will still set in from time to time. This is the 21-year-old’s first time to fly the coop, as she has been attending a correspondent college from home. In Johannesburg, Katie works two full-time jobs to pay her way through college as she majors in biochemistry and anatomy. The draining schedule, combined with her love for children, inspired her decision to take a gap year as an au pair. Now halfway across the world, the distance from her family and 86 • APR 18
boyfriend can be daunting. But her host family is here for her. "If I'm feeling a little bit 'blah', I know I can just tell Nikki and we'll chat,” Katie says. And there is always her favorite part of the day: “Everyday I have to wait at the bus stop for the girls. And every day both girls run out of the bus and give me a hug,” Katie says. “So it doesn't matter how bad my day is. I know at that moment that they are going to be excited to see me." The kids’ instant acceptance of Katie is not rare for them. Each au pair in the Stovall home has been greatly loved. In fact, they are now all a part of a What’s App group (basically a group chat) that allows present and former au pairs to communicate. It’s not uncommon to see birthday wishes, pictures of the kids and exciting updates within the group. Nikki likens it to a sorority, only this group of ladies is all over the world. "It's like a little family, which I really love,” Katie says. In many ways, family is an appropriate word for the Stovall’s au pairs. Many precious moments have been shared between the Southlake family and these seven women from across the globe. For example, their first au pair, Priscila, traveled from Brazil and found her home here in the U.S. She married an American and had Carl Stovall walk her down the aisle as a father traditionally would. The kids were not left out, as they filled the roles of ring bearer and flower girls. Carl and Nikki are now godparents to Priscila’s two girls. In fact, Priscila asked Nikki to be in the delivery room when both Grace and Tiffany were born. Their second au pair, Gabi, also from Brazil, became really involved with Gateway Church when she settled in to her host home. She included the Stovall family on her own milestone. “I was so honored when she asked me to be the one to baptize her,” Nikki says. The stories and memories go on. From family vacations to half marathons, every au pair has left her mark. In Ryne’s words, he “could never pick a favorite.” "Each au pair has the kids at a different age, so you take out your own little space in time with the kids,” Katie says. “I think that's so cool that they have one person that marks each stage of their life. The kids learn something unique from each au pair, which is really awesome." SOUTHLAKESTYLE MAGAZINE

Masterpieces, Music and Margaritas Experience many forms of art at the Annual Art in the Square in Southlake
eauty is an explosion of colors on a mountain scene; a glittering, purple French bulldog; a lifelike drawing of a crisp, Autumn tree; and more interesting and unique artwork that you can see at the 19th Annual Art in the Square in Southlake! The event features creations from more than 155 juried professional, emerging and aspiring high school artists from almost every U.S. state and a few international locations. During this three-day festival, guests can admire (and purchase!) fine art of a wide range of styles and mediums including drawings, sculptures, jewelry, ceramics, photographs and more, carefully selected by a jury that reviewed 790 applications for this year’s event. Later, take a break from perusing art to experience many other activities the festival offers. Listen to live music on two stages. Many genres will be represented throughout the weekend including jazz, pop, rock, reggae, Motown and country as well as performances from local bands and dance studios. Keep the little ones entertained at Kids Korner, where they can appreciate art in the form of face painting, washable hair coloring, sugar art and oil coloring. Or, take the kids (and anyone who wants to let out some energy) to The Zone, sponsored by Children’s Health Southlake, which includes bounce houses, inflatables, a rock-climbing wall, a new zip line and a four-way bungee trampoline! Once everyone has worked up an appetite, stop by one of many food and beverage stations to enjoy treats like tacos, roasted corn, Korean barbecue, pizza and frozen margaritas. Since 2000, the Art in the Square festival has helped the Southlake Women’s Club raise and donate more than $2.7 million to Northeast Tarrant County charities that help women, families and children overcome daily challenges. There’s no better way to see outstanding artwork, enjoy the beautiful spring weather, have fun with the entire family and benefit the community at the same time!

Bring Les Misérables Home!
Photo by Matthew Murphy
Travel to 19th-century France during this award-winning musical
risoner 24601 first stole bread — and the hearts of audiences everywhere — more than 30 years ago; now, Jean Valjean and the entire cast of Les Misérables are back in town with a stunning new production of this Broadway musical, presented by Cameron Mackintosh. The show follows Valjean as he escapes parole, starts a new life, looks over a beautiful young girl named Cosette after her mother dies and evades Inspector Javert, the prison officer who has been hunting Valjean for years. This dramatic musical takes viewers to a tumultuous time of passion, sacrifice, love and redemption — all with vibrant new scenery and staging. Fans of the show will love seeing performances of favorite songs, including “One Day More,” “I Dreamed a Dream,” “On My Own,” “Stars” and “Bring Him Home.” And newcomers will be pleasantly surprised with how quickly they are swept up by the brilliant storytelling. Les Misérables is based on the novel of the same name written by Victor Hugo in 1862. In 1980, the musical premiered in Paris with French lyrics by Alain Boublil and music by Claude-Michel Schönberg. This Tony Awardwinning musical is one of the longest running in the world and has been seen by 70,000,000 people in 44 countries and 22 languages! In 2012, Les Misérables was made into a movie starring Hugh Jackman and Russell Crowe, which received a multitude of awards including several Oscars and Golden Globes, and helped cement the story in popular culture. This old French story is just as gripping, exciting and fantastic today as it was 156 years ago — and we can hardly wait to experience it again!
