LETTER FROM

SOUTHL AKE

the editor

the art of health From nutritional labels to electronic medical records and wearable tech, the plethora of data has healthcare professionals, congress and the lay public utterly perplexed about the best ways for Americans to stay healthy and out of the hospital. If you’re like me you’re probably staring down 2018 with a dose of blurryeyed confusion (and perhaps elevated cholesterol). All I do know is the art of staying healthy has leaped over Tony Little’s FreeStyle Gazelle™ and is on the cusp of an LED-lit future. Sure, I have a fitness watch, but I’m afraid I’m still more eliptical than SKILLMILL (see page 46). Trying to get our heads around it all, we put together a panel of three Southlake area hospital presidents whose decades of experience helped shed light into a variety of health related topics. What I found most interesting about our panel on The State of Local Healthcare is the increased roles tomorrow’s patients will take in prioritizing and monitoring their own health and fitness. And whenever people are ready to make health and fitness a priority Larry North’s doors will be open across the Metroplex. This month we sat down, albeit briefly, with the hyper-energetic gym owner, trainer, author, speaker, radio host and overall fitness icon. For 30 years and counting, North’s refreshingly simple advice, “Eat clean and move your body,” is a nice reprieve for these complicated times. If only health insurance could be so simple.

“Though this show is not airing anymore, it is one of my all-time favorite TV shows. The cast and story lines are hilarious. Though dramatized for humorous effect, the situations and issues the characters face are very similar to what our Parks and Recreation staff manage on a daily basis. At the heart of the show is the main character Leslie Knope’s selfless desire to make her city, Pawnee, Indiana, the best it can be. That passion you see from Leslie is the same passion I see from my team as we strive to serve the Southlake community by offering the best parks, facilities and recreation programs we can.” —Candice Edmondson, Deputy Director for Community Services for the City of Southlake

itness and health trends come and go. One day you’re doing step aerobics to pop hits and the next you’re doing curls in a CrossFit class. So it’s a real testament to both his fitness principles and his business prowess that Larry North is celebrating more than 30 years of being DFW’s leader in the fitness world. The affable North, still fit and muscular in his mid-50s, not only owns a nearly 30-year-old eponymous chain of health clubs around the Metroplex—including one in Westlake’s Solana development—but also has been hosting a radio show for more than 30 years. He’s penned bestselling books on living fit and even once hosted an infomercial that generated more than $150 million in revenue. But he’s not celebrating three decades of success, nor did he reach this many years of success, by resting on his laurels. “I never want to hear someone say, ‘I’m doing the best I can,’” says North. “You can always be better. You can be kinder, nicer, more caring. You can always eat cleaner, be more thoughtful.”

F U E L E D B Y F A M I LY In a way, North has his dad to thank for this drive and ambition. But Irv North certainly didn’t model this behavior. Instead, the younger North’s strength and mental fortitude developed from a tumultuous early childhood that included 10 different schools in four different states and ultimately a cross-country move to escape Irv. Born in New York to Irv North and mom, Beverly, North had a childhood that was anything but idyllic. His father was a Brooklyn mobster, gambler and con artist. When North was 15 and his twin brothers were 5, Beverly took the kids and left town to get away from her increasingly abusive husband. They headed first to Las Vegas, from which Irv had been banned, figuring it would be a guarantee that Irv wouldn’t follow. But Sin City wasn’t the kind of place she wanted to raise her boys, so they turned around to backtrack toward Houston. Beverly figured that Texas—which had no gambling—would hold little appeal to Irv. Their car broke down in Richardson, Texas, though, and since their funds were quickly dwindling, Beverly decided to stay put. They found a motel in town until Beverly could get a job to support the family of four. 20 • JAN 18

” I realized I had a God-given gift... that I had the ability to inspire people.

North, though just 15, got a job helping to build pools so that he could contribute. “We’ve lived in not-so-good places, but we went to good schools and had a roof over our heads,” North says of his teen years in Texas. “I never felt without.” North’s dad not only drove the family away from the East Coast but also he, in a sense, was the driving force behind North getting involved in fitness. “I got into [working out] at an early age,” North says. “I wanted to build my body up, to make sure I was big enough to protect my mom.” SOUTHLAKESTYLE MAGAZINE


H O W I T A L L S TA R T E D He started working out at Doug’s Gym in downtown Dallas when he was in his 20s, which he fit into long days that included selling shoes at Neiman Marcus during the day and acting as a bouncer for bars at night. (North admits that he has never, ever been unwilling to work hard.) His epiphany came while watching the 1980s TV show “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.” “I saw Robin Leach interviewing a rich person who had a personal trainer and I thought to myself, ‘I can do that,’” North recalls. His first client, albeit a non-paying client, was a guy who had walked into a near-empty gym at 4 a.m., when North was working out, then quickly walked back out. North saw the man, who weighed around 400 pounds, and felt compelled to seek him out and ask him why he left the gym. North says the man’s response was that it was hopeless, why bother? But North wouldn’t have it. “I know what hopeless feels like,” North told the man. He made him a deal: Come to the gym every morning and North would train him. Within a year, the man had lost a couple hundred pounds and North had found his true calling. “I realized I had a God-given gift, that I had the ability to inspire people,” North says. He found success in training others one-on-one, but knew he could get his message of hope and health to many more people. His radio show came next, not because someone came looking for him, but because he called the radio station and pitched his idea. He got five minutes with the program director to make his case. Afterwards, “I got a voice mail from him saying ‘The good news is we’re giving you your own show. The not-so-good news is that it’s at 7 a.m. on Sunday mornings.’” Over time, he built a faithful audience (some current listeners, in fact, have been listening to his show since the early days) and got a better time slot. Buoyed by the success of his radio show, North turned to books next, writing Get Fit. Thirteen of 14 publishers rejected it, but ultimately, the book spent 156 weeks on the local bestseller list. This led to more books, which combined with the radio show, the infomercial and the clubs he had started to open around town, turned North into a fitness celebrity—and a wealthy man.

STILL GOING STRONG

3 TI PS FO R B EI N G YO U R B EST SELF 1. EAT CLEAN At least, do it most of the time. North recommends trying to continually extend the periods during which you eat clean, healthy food. His clean food list includes lean protein, fibrous vegetables and ample healthy fats, with just a moderate amount of complex carbohydrates. Even a fitness guru such as North admits that staying in great physical shape is 90 percent nutrition. 2. MOVE YOUR BODY CONSISTENTLY North recommends exercising for 45 to 60 minutes, every other day or four days a week. North’s own routine includes an hour of moderate cardio work, such as walking on the treadmill, each morning from 5 to 6 a.m. followed by another hour of strength training. 3. STAY HORMONALLY OPTIMAL North is so passionate about hormonal wellness that he became a spokesperson for Dallas-based BioTE Medical, which offers hormone replacement therapy. North feels that optimizing hormones help give a person increased strength and energy, mental clarity and age-related disease prevention.

He could have slowed down, cashed out or sold the business to leave the heavy lifting to someone else. But complacency isn’t in North’s being. Which is why, more than 30 years after he got his start in this industry, he is busy opening the doors to a new Larry North Fitness facility: a modern, updated space in Preston Center complete with a graffiti mural and a group fitness room tucked behind glass garage doors. At his side is his wife, Brenda, to whom he has been married for 12 years and who helps keep North grounded. Brenda is a meditation expert, Reiki master and massage therapist, the perfect complement to the high energy and driven North. He now meditates every day and is, in his words, a lot mellower than he was in his 20s. They also push each other to eat clean and stay healthy. “We pinkie swear to each other that we aren’t gong to overindulge,” North says. In fact, these days North’s diet has changed, evolving not so much with any diet trends but rather with what someone his age needs, or needs less of. “I’m not as obsessed with eating eight meals a day,” North says. Instead, he focuses on “clean eating,” which includes lean proteins, fibrous vegetables and healthy fats. He says he has reduced his intake of complex carbohydrates significantly. He also, as one might guess, works out every day, from 5 a.m. until 7 a.m. His workout involves walking on the treadmill for 45 to 60 minutes at a medium to slow place and then lifting weights for the second hour. Unlike some of the fitness trends that have come and gone, his workout hasn’t changed much over the years. Still, he’s impressed by the number of choices people have today when it comes to fitness, with an endless array of classes such as cycling, yoga, Cross Fit and more. “It’s more fun to exercise now,” North admits. “Even workout clothes are more fun today.” North’s days are also filled with business obligations, including his radio show, chain of clubs, work with BioTE Medical as a spokesperson. He and his wife also spearhead the Optimal Living Initiative—which offers speakers and advisers on health awareness issues such as nutrition and fitness, meditation and stress management—for Satori Capital, a Fort Worth-based private equity firm. And he continually makes it a priority to connect with other people. Just like he connected with his first personal training client and just like he connected with program manager to get his own radio show. It’s no wonder North attributes the ongoing success of his clubs to offering something a little more than do the myriad competitors that come and go. North sums it up succinctly: “What makes us thrive is our culture. We care about people.”

THE STATE OF LOCAL HEALTHCARE A PANEL DISCUSSION WITH AREA HOSPITAL PRESIDENTS

SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

F

rom caring for our aging population to ensuring the affordability of healthcare to the masses, the rising costs and complexities of administering healthcare are among the nation’s biggest concerns. The general health of our overweight and aging population, advances in medical equipment, training and technology and the cost of prescription medicines have all played a role in the increasing costs of our collective well-being. In fact, recent estimates from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services show Americans spent over $3.2 trillion on healthcare in 2015. With estimated growth rates of 5.6 percent annually this means the average American will spend more than $10,000 this year on personal healthcare and that figure is widely expected to increase through the year 2025. According to a recent WalletHub study, the state of Texas ranks at the very bottom in the country when it comes to statewide access to healthcare. The research firm’s Best & Worst States for Health Care in 2017 ranked Texas 51st in access and 41st overall. The study, which included the District of Colombia, utilized 35 different measures of cost, accessibility and outcomes to determine their list. However, the Metroplex stands apart from many of the underserved areas of the Lone Star State with a reputable network of high-performing hospitals. According to US News and World Report five of the best 11 hospitals in the entire state are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Closer to home, residents in and around Southlake enjoy access to an ever-expanding network of locally-based retail healthcare ranging from freestanding emergency rooms, health clinics and outpatient specialty hospitals. To help provide some insight on the state of healthcare on a national and local scale, we posed several questions to the presidents of three of the area’s top hospitals. The presidents of Texas Health Harris Hospital Southlake, Baylor Scott and White Grapevine and Methodist Southlake were kind enough to lend their opinions. Collectively these three presidents offer decades of industry experience and just as importantly, an understanding of what’s going on right in our own backyards. JAN 18 • 49


1. WHAT ARE THE OVERARCHING TRENDS THAT ARE TRANSFORMING THE U.S. HEALTHCARE MARKET? Steven R. Newton, President Baylor Scott & White: There are many trends of note today, including regulatory uncertainty, the rise of consumerism, the focus on “well care” in addition to “sick care,” and industry disruption by Amazon and mega mergers by surprising partners like the proposed CVS and Aetna deal. One of the most interesting trends affecting healthcare today is development of new technology that (1) helps consumers monitor and change their health and wellness behaviors, (2) helps patients have shorter and safer hospital stays, and (3) helps patients connect with doctors and other providers via computer and smart phone. Traci Bernard, President Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake: Telemedicine/Telehealth services such as video-conferencing are becoming cost effective ways to complement local health services. It is particularly beneficial to those living in rural, regional and remote communities and requiring regular access to medical specialists. The payment landscape is shifting under the U.S. health care industry. Traditional fee-for-service payments are being replaced with a financial incentive framework that rewards for improved quality, outcomes and costs. This shift to valuebased reimbursement models creates a new paradigm in which care is delivered by an entire coordinated care community sharing in the responsibility. While the law directly impacts only Medicare payments today, it lays the groundwork and provides strong incentives for other payers to move in the same direction. John McGreevy, President Methodist Southlake Hospital: Without a doubt, the Affordable Care Act has brought a major transformation since the late 1980s. This has contributed to consolidation (mergers and acquisition) of healthcare in the United States between health systems and hospitals, drug companies, health plans, device manufactures and other healthcare entities. It is the general consensus that health systems and hospitals needed to become larger in order to effectively manage large populations through the exchanges and fewer health plans. 50 • JAN 18

2. IN TODAY’S HIGH-PRICED HEALTHCARE MARKET, HOW CAN HOSPITALS AND PHYSICIANS PROVIDE CONSUMERS WITH THE BEST POSSIBLE VALUE? SN: All of us must be committed to delivering health care at the lowest achievable cost and the highest quality. These goals go hand in hand if managed carefully. For example, it is essential that doctors and hospitals work together to provide care based on clinical evidence, collaborate to eliminate unnecessary services and reduce delays in care and other forms of waste, and become accountable for the outcomes of care. TB: As trends collide, they create challenges for the industry stakeholders as well as opportunities for innovation. There is a shift in the spectrum of care from hospitals to lower cost sites. Texas Health Resources is committed to wellness and preventative care; shifting disease management from reactive to preventative. We are committed to personalized care and shifting offerings from mass generalization to mass customization and precision. Finally, there is a shift on the management of the aging, chronic and end of life care. This requires a shift in focus from institutionalized based care to community-supported aging, and leveraging big data and personalizing to manage chronic conditions. SOUTHLAKESTYLE.COM

JM: Improving access at the right place and the right time with the continued focus on quality, demonstrated through reporting of standards. Generally speaking, this will require the inclusion of the healthcare consumer for the purpose of making an informed decision. Idealistically, this will require steering patients away from hospitals, which is most costly for the healthcare consumer. The common practice today is to work with chronically ill patients through a healthcare navigator program to seek proactive management of such afflictions as diabetes, chronic pulmonary disease, heart disease and more. The continued collaboration between hospitals, physicians and insurance plans is required for this model to succeed. 3. HOW IS THE DELIVERY OF HEALTH CARE BY HOSPITALS GOING TO CHANGE OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS? SN: Hospitals will always have a vital role in the healthcare ecosystem. Caring for the critically ill and injured and those with advanced JAN 18 • 51


illnesses like cancer and heart disease will always require a team of highly-qualified experts to be ready and able 24 hours a day. Increasingly, though, many elective procedures that used to be done in the inpatient setting will be done as in an outpatient environment, as this can be safe and less costly thanks to innovation in care delivery. TB: The healthcare landscape has shifted, moving toward consumer centric care and overall population health management. Adapting to the needs and wants of the consumer (convenience, timeliness, quality) has created opportunities for improved coordination of care, which has led to increased quality and decreased cost. Additionally, we saw a retail health and wellness convergence amongst retail clinics, urgent care centers and the like, causing more of a collaboration between these two industries. JM: One constant about healthcare has been the change brought about by the federal government through regulations in Medicare and Medicaid. Hospitals tend to be driven by the enactment of rules and regulations governing the Medicare program. We have witnessed a paradigm shift with the proliferation of “retail” healthcare like freestanding emergency centers and ambulatory surgical centers. The “Amazonation” of driving the healthcare consumer to outpatient centers will continue for ease of access, resulting in further migration away from tertiary care health centers. Furthermore, health insurance companies are beginning to increase the scrutiny of healthcare costs through resisting the use of hospital-based services for their beneficiaries.

52 • JAN 18

TB: There is also an increase in privately insured adults enrolling in Consumer Driven Health Plans (CDHP) with health savings accounts or other reimbursement arrangements. Others are also enrolling in high-deductible plans (HDHP) not linked to a health saving plan or a health reimbursement plan. It is common for employers to contribute to a Health Savings Account. Individuals in these types of plans were more likely to exhibit cost conscious behaviors. They are also remaining in these plans for extended periods of time. The viability of these plans has increased, as has employer contributions. Which ultimately points towards higher rates of wellness program availability and participation. 4. DESCRIBE HOW VALUE-BASED REIMBURSEMENT IS IMPACTING HOSPITALS: SN: Value-based reimbursement simply links payment to outcomes. Medicare, for example, withholds payment from hospitals if too many patients are readmitted within 30 days of discharge. In healthcare, like other industries, innovation often follows funding changes. As a result, new readmission avoidance programs are being implemented to help patients stay healthy after they leave the hospital. In this situation, everybody wins. TB: The payment landscape is shifting under the U.S. health care industry. With the volume-to-value transformation, traditional fee-for-service payments are being replaced with a financial incentive framework that rewards for improved quality, outcomes and costs. This shift to valuebased reimbursement models creates a new paradigm in which care is delivered by an entire coordinated care community sharing in the responsibility—and risk—of outcomes and costs, touching almost every part of health care delivery operations. JM: The impact has been minimal, as the costs to implement this system compared with the overall benefits to the consumer have not been in line. National healthcare sta-

SOUTHLAKESTYLE MAGAZINE


tistics reflect that less than 20 percent of hospitals nationwide have a concerted-effort on value based payment models. Statistics aside, hospitals and health systems will continue to pursue the value-based models while experimenting with other alternatives. 5. HOW IS YOUR HOSPITAL INVESTING TO MEET THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY? SN: Our hospital has long been committed to listening to community needs and responding with exceptional programs. Recently, for instance, we became the only level 2 trauma program in Northeast Tarrant County and opened a new inpatient rehabilitation unit. Our community said “We want advanced trauma and rehab care right here in our neighborhood,” and we delivered. We are always looking for ways to reach more, do more, serve more. It’s who we are. TB: The specialty hospital model is part of the shift in care from the traditional hospital model to a lower-cost site. Our focus is on surgery and the necessary support services. With a focus on doing one thing, we are able to provide a high level of care and service more efficiently and effectively. We have been committed to investing in the latest technology to maintain our current service lines. Strategically, we continuously monitor the growing needs within our community, while responding by adapting appropriately. JM: Investments have been predominantly two-fold. One: retail healthcare centers, joint ventures with physicians, and innovative healthcare services that are mainstream in other industries; and two: major investment in Enterprise-wide electronic health records (EHR). They provide the hospital staff, physicians and other healthcare providers to practice medicine in an incredibly efficient manner through the electronic sharing of clinical records, which reduces the overall work effort. In addition, web-based portals allow patient access to their records for improved transparency.

It’s Not Hyperbole: Joe Hnizdo is the World’s Strongest Firefighter

L

ast August was a big month for local firefighter Joe Hnizdo. He traveled to Los Angeles for the World Police and Firefighter Games and to Houston as part the Texas Search and Rescue team in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. In Los Angeles, he lifted more weight than any firefighter in his division. In Houston, he saw sights that left a lasting impression.

“That was a totally different experience in my career to go through and do everything that we did and see everything that we saw down there,” he says of his Houston experience. That is just a glimpse at the multifaceted life of Hnizdo. He trains five days a week and is on a 4,000-calorie-perday diet. Power lifting is hard work, but it is not unlike his work with the Flower Mound Fire Department. “A lot of firefighters get into certain situations and you have to push past what you think is normal,” Hnizdo says. “Sometimes you’ve got to work harder than you think you can or learn to control your breathing better, and so that’s why I think a lot of us enjoy the gym so much because it’s that same kind of thing.”

your smart enough to get your body to look that way. If it was easy, everybody would be walking around in shape.” Hnizdo trains at JOJ Fitness in Hurst, just blocks from where he grew up. He graduated from Bell High School and subsequently A&M University before going to fire school in Fort Worth. He now lives in Fort Worth with his wife of 11 years and three daughters – a 7 year old and twin 3 year olds. As for his day job, it meshes well with his passion for weight lifting. Jackson gives Hnizdo workout routines that he can do at his fire station. Of course, you can’t win an international competition without your coworkers noticing. Hnizdo says he has been subject to some playful jabs, but that overall, his fellow Flower Mound firefighters have been really supportive of his endeavors.

“They give me a hard time about it, but that’s what firemen do, we give each other a hard time about everything,” Hnizdo says. “The better it is, the more they’ll give you a hard time about it. If they’re not giving you a hard time, something’s wrong.”

Johnnie Jackson, renowned bodybuilder, trainer and owner of JOJ Fitness, helps Hnizdo push past “normal.” He says that the firefighter is obviously strong, but most importantly, he is teachable.

His best in competition was a 551 lbs. bench and 680 lbs. deadlift, but when you ask what his max is, he honestly doesn’t know. And to Hnizdo, that is perfectly fine. He believes, just as Jackson said, it’s not about the weight, it’s about how you lift it. His advice to anyone looking to lift is this:

“It’s more than just lifting stuff,” Jackson says. “People think that you have to look a certain way to lift weights, but you look a certain way because

“Don’t lift with your ego, lift with your brain. I can do more [weight] every single time, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to do it right.”

Whiskey Wonderland FROM GRAIN TO GLASS, FIRESTONE & ROBERTSON’S NEW DISTILLERY IS TEXAS-SIZED AND READY TO TOUR

A WHISKEY RANCH 2601 Whiskey Ranch Road Ft. Worth 817.840.9140 FRDistilling.com

62 • JAN 18

fter a cocktail napkin’s worth of research, Leonard Firestone and Troy Robertson realized they were on to something. Texas was the second-largest whiskey consuming state in the union, and if Tito’s handmade was any foreshadowing, it was clear the Lone Star State was thirsty for a whiskey brand to call its own. The year was 2010, the heyday of the local craft beer movement, and Tony Soprano’s single malt Sunday night tradition had firmly given way to Don Draper’s oldfashioned. The world, and by world we mean Texas, was deeply in love with whiskey. So too were Firestone and Robertson (F&R), and they set to work revitalizing a pre-prohibition warehouse just south of

downtown Fort Worth. The duo released its TX Blended Whiskey in June of 2012 and promptly brought “Best American Craft Whiskey” honors to Fort Worth. Bravado and big steaks met their perfect complement. The initial success of F&R’s blended whiskey gave the budding bourbon-aires exactly what they needed—time. Five-years time, in fact, for the yellow dent Texas corn, red winter wheat and their proprietary Texan pecan yeast strain to properly age. In December of 2016, hundreds braved the elements to wait in line at the Fort Worth distillery to be among the first to purchase a bottle of their long-anticipated TX Straight Bourbon. Many left cold, and unfortunately, empty-handed. Demand was already exceeding supply.

SOUTHLAKESTYLE MAGAZINE


LOCALFLAVOR review The founders saw this coming and had already begun searching for a new home for an expanded distilling operation. What they found was a picturesque tract with views of the Fort Worth skyline – a mere five miles from the original distillery on Vickery Boulevard. And what they’ve built is nothing short of a Whiskey Wonderland. The upstart Texas distillery blended with Fort Worth tradition and assembled their new home on 112-acres of the former Glen Garden Country Club. Officially open for tours, private events—and yes, distilling— Whiskey Ranch now sits on the hallowed grounds where legends Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson once honed their golf games. The 18-hole course, which has been updated ever so slightly to artfully accommodate an immersive whiskey experience, is still functioning. The country’s only golf course situated on a working distillery will be open for private and charitable events—an example of the many ways the owners plan to maintain the distillery as a true Fort Worth destination. Upon arrival, guests are whisked past the security shed and led across manicured grounds to the Ranch House. The heart of the operation, the Ranch House brings together the warm elements of replica oak barrel walls, and cowhide chairs offset by gleaming metals and sealed concrete floors that immediately welcome visitors to this rustic yet modern environ. Private event guests or those enjoying one of the now daily public tours can—and should—partake in a tasting or signature drink at the Tavern. From there, make your way through the breezeway to enjoy the floor-to-ceiling tiered rock fireplace of the Oak Room which can accommodate up to 180 guests for any type of private gathering. Drink in hand, take a step outside to the wrap around back porch and enjoy views overlooking the golf course, Benders Lake and the expanse of the Forth Worth skyline to the North. The space is so peaceful it’s hard to believe you’re standing only a few hundred yards from a 45-feet-tall column still that can produce 40 barrels per day. That’s more than 12 times their previous Vickery Road production and enough to lay claim as the largest distillery this side of the Mississippi River. Opposite the golf course stands the non-descript expanse of the property’s first of five barrel barns. Each barrel barn can hold 20,000 barrels (1 barrel can age 240 bottles worth of bourbon) for approximately five years as the bourbon ages. The barn is not climate controlled as to take advantage of the true Texas weather during the aging process. The effects of the hot Texas climate after years of aging in oak barrels brings forth bold aromas of rich oak, caramel, cinnamon and allspice. The property and the tour comes back full circle to the gift shop where the TX Whiskey and Bourbon faithful can show their brand loyalty on anything from hats, shirts and drinkware to a wide variety of Texas-themed merchandise. In less than a decade’s time, Firestone and Robertson Distillery has built a reputation for smooth and sought-after whiskies in addition to not one but two distinct local landmarks. Both whiskies are available in Texas and in a growing number of states throughout the U.S.—but a trek to Whiskey Ranch is a must for any self-respecting bourbonite.

Family Fun Night Knock ‘em down at PINSTACK

PINSTACK 2750 West I-635 Irving 214.765.2695 PINSTACKBowl.com

66 • JAN 18

You know the drill. When it comes to planning time to spend as a family, options may be limited. Food is definitely important, but that’s just one factor that puts the fun in family night. Choosing where to go for entertainment is usually the most important decision. Possibilities include a kid-centered pizza restaurant with a room full of video games aimed at youth, or restaurants with patios and sandbox areas. However, these choices don’t bring the family together. With a full-service restaurant, a bowling alley and an entertainment arena, PINSTACK in Las Colinas is the recreation destination for your next family fun night. PINSTACK features 28 bowling lanes with stateof-the-art technology and lane-side food and drink service. Accommodating to beginning bowlers and pros alike, PINSTACK allows the whole family to enjoy knocking down a few pins. Gather a group of friends to keep you company and take advantage of PINSTACK’s private lanes area. The two-level laser tag arena is one big obstacle course fully loaded with fog, glowing pillars and music to keep your feet moving. While laser tag pits you against each other, the high ropes course and rock climbing wall require trust and teamwork; in other words, a great opportunity for family bonding. However, if you just can’t get away from the competition factor, taking a ride or two in the bumper cars will definitely get that out of your system. If that isn’t enough to keep a family busy, it’s time to introduce your kids to Skee-ball and air hockey, then let them enjoy the latest video games and simulator technology. A trip to PINSTACK eliminates the need to first decide on dinner before moving on to the entertainment. Both are available under one roof, and you don’t have to sacrifice taste when it comes to dining options. PINSTACK’s made-from-scratch, chefdriven menu is filled with family favorites inspired by modern American cuisine. Starters include mac and cheese pops, nachos, BBQ brisket and cheddar potato skins. Follow up your starter with a Texas Smokehouse Burger, the California Burger or the Classic Margherita Pizza. If mom and dad require more than chicken tenders, they can choose from the entrée menu. Braised Beef Short Rib and Blackened Mahi Mahi are a few classy dishes worth trying. They also take reservations for parties of 10 guests or fewer. In addition to the fare, PINSTACK offers an extensive wine and draft beer list, not to mention a craft cocktail menu that gives standalone bars a run for their money.

PARKS MANAGER KEEPS OUR COMMUNITY BEAUTIFUL, ONE MEDIAN AT A TIME

Y

ou may not know his name, but you definitely know his work. Southlake is known for its well-kept streets and properly maintained parks, so it’s no surprise that one of the city’s most loyal employees received recognition for his efforts. The Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS) awarded the city’s parks manager Mike Reasoner “Parks Professional of the Year” for his dedication to his role, team and community at their awards luncheon in November. Reasoner’s commitment to building up the city deserves to be noticed.

I HAVE BEEN WITH THE CITY… for 15 years this coming January. I started out with the department by taking a position as parks supervisor. Our team has grown so much over the years. We had about eight people to start out with and now we’re at 28 people with three park supervisors. My day-to-day tasks involve going around and maintaining the parks, helping out the staff, driving around and covering the town and managing over the team with the supervisors. And as we grow, we keep getting better at what we do. THE PARKS DEPARTMENT… oversees maintenance and beautification of the Southlake parks system including neighborhood parks and community parks with fields for baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse and flag football. The department also maintains landscape, irrigation, and mowing throughout the city including Town Square Parks, medians and right of ways. We also oversee various special projects throughout the year that help to improve the parks system and Southlake environment. PARKS ARE IMPORTANT… on many levels.  Residents have a place to come outside to reconnect and enjoy everything from walking trails to playgrounds. In addition, sports complexes draw teams from all over the nation that support the city economically. I THINK THE PARKS IN SOUTHLAKE STAND OUT BECAUSE… they are well maintained and our department takes pride in keeping them up to a high standard.  Also, Southlake strives to add and enhance the parks to accommodate all citizens’ needs.

WHEN I WON THE AWARD, I WAS… very surprised. It was something I was not expecting. I’m honored to accept the award on behalf of the Parks Department and to all the great staff that made it possible. They deserve all the credit for what we are able to do as a department.   IT IS VERY REWARDING TO… serve with these passionate people and to help accomplish the best for them and the city. We work alongside individuals, groups and associations that together want the best for the community. All the different groups we work with are really passionate about what they do, so it makes it easier to continue working hard day after day. They make it easy to continue serving the city. MY TEAM… is the one that does it all. They take a lot of pride in what they do. And it’s that pride that makes everything look as good as it does. They are the ones out there doing the hard work that makes the difference at the end of the day. This is their award as much as mine. THIS YEAR… we will be designing and installing a new playground/pavilion at the Bob Jones Park soccer complex. With the Bicentennial playground being the most popular for play and parties, this will offer a nice option on the north side of town.  WHEN I’M NOT WORKING, I ENJOY… cooking out, weekend getaways, vacations and spending time at RV resorts relaxing and enjoying life.

B

lue hair and whipped cream bras may not be a part of her show anymore, but you can expect to see a dazzling explosion of color, dancing, props and lighting effects—and, yes, even Left Shark—at Katy Perry’s upcoming concert at the American Airlines Center. Perry’s style continually evolves and still has an amazing ability to entertain audiences with unbelievably catchy songs and world-class performances. You can “Witness” the pop queen’s talent yourself when she comes to Dallas this month as part of her Witness tour, honoring her fifth studio album of the same name. Sing along to new hits “Swish Swish,” “Bon Appetit” and “Chained to the Rhythm,” as well as old favorites “California Gurls,” Teenage Dream” and “I Kissed a Girl.” Since debuting her first album, One of the Boys, in 2007, Perry has gone on to release four more albums and be nominated for 13 Grammy awards. She is the first artist to earn three Recording Industry Association of America Diamond certifications (given when a song passes 10 million sales and streams in the U.S.) for “Roar,” “Dark Horse,” and “Firework.” She has also broken several Guinness World Records, including first to accumulate 100 million Twitter followers, most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours for a female artist (“Chained to the Rhythm”), first female to have five number one singles from one album (Teenage Dream), and largest TV audience for a Super Bowl half-time show. Perry is serious about producing songs, while at the same time playful when it comes to putting on her concerts. With your kitty-eared headband and your perfectly applied cat-eye eyeliner on, join the thousands of other Katy Cats for a night of sweet visuals and number one pop hits from this mega star. It’ll be a purr-fect night.

SMALL MOUTH SOUNDS

TASTE OF APEX

JANUARY 31-FEBRUARY 4

JANUARY 25, 6:30 P.M.

WYLY THEATRE | Conversations bring people together, but what if you couldn't use your voice? Small Mouth Sounds, written by Drama Desk-award winner Bess Wohl and directed by Obieaward winner Rachel Chavkin, explores that question. This funny and insightful play takes place in the woods, as six people attend a silent retreat. Strangers attempt to get to know each other without talking, which leads to funny and slightly uncomfortable encounters and internal growth. Many emotions will be felt and seen (just not heard) during this beautiful show.
