Turning statistics into success stories Three out of 10 American kids won’t graduate on time, but the odds get much better when they go to the Boys & Girls Clubs. 90% of the kids from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County will graduate, and that’s just one of the many reasons Wells Fargo is honored to support the clubs with contributions and volunteers, including Area President Oliver Ariztoy who is actively involved in the local programs. We believe we can only be as strong as the communities in which we live and work. That’s why, in 2013, Wells Fargo contributed more than $11 million to nonprofits in Florida.
Wells Fargo is proud to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County.

When I was a child, spring vacation was the only reason I looked forward to March. Now, living and working in Palm Beach County, I realize there’s so much more to celebrate. This month is certainly a time to expand your cultural horizons in South Florida, and not just by wearing green on March 17. Attend a polo match at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington and indulge in IPC’s fabulous Sunday brunch. From March 6-15, catch a performance or presentation during the Festival of the Arts Boca, which welcomes talented artists such as violinist Itzhak Perlman, jazz trumpeter Arturo Sandoval and historian and author Doris Kearns Goodwin. For a look at the automobiles of tomorrow, stop by the Town Center at Boca Raton, where you can get behind the wheel of an electric car at Tesla Motors, one of the mall’s newest retailers. March in Palm Beach is also a time of luncheons and galas to raise funds for deserving causes. Palm Beach Illustrated is proud to sponsor several worthy events this month, starting March 8 with Evening on Antique Row, from the Young Friends of the Historical Society of Palm Beach County. On March 20, we’ll be at The Club at Admiral’s Cove for the north county edition of the heated Country Club Chef Showdown for the Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation. Two days later, we’ll be supporting BallenIsles Charities Foundation’s fashion show and luncheon at Saks Fifth Avenue. For the first time, we’ll be participating in Liezl’s Tea Party, held March 13 and benefiting Els for Autism. Knowing this disorder affects more families each year, we are eager to shine a light on this important organization. For more on the latest events going on this month and beyond, check our Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest accounts. We’re having a great time, and we hope you are too!

A Beautiful Thing What is beauty? It is a universal question many have attempted to answer—in fact, some of those contemplations are scattered throughout this page—yet the true definition, like many true things, eludes us. When pondering the question ourselves, we did what any respectable magazine would do: We asked our readers. In November, we campaigned via our website and social media channels for nominations, and later votes, to identify five local women who personify beauty. We were overwhelmed by the community interest and truly touched by the love: fathers nominating daughters, friends campaigning for friends via social media, husbands waxing poetic about their wives. If that isn’t beauty, I don’t know what is. What I do know is, strictly through readers’ choice, we ended up with five women who glow from within because of their strength, acEleanor Roosevelt complishments, compassion, loyalty and incurable charm. As a bonus, they are also gorgeous. Turn to “Palm Beach Beauties” (page 90); I am confident you will agree. The concept, of course, is not limited to people. There is a certain majesty to a sport that combines elegance and power, or to a muscular Thoroughbred galloping downfield. Our appreciation for this kind of beauty compelled us to sponsor a polo team this year. The young players on team Palm Beach Illustrated—Jared Zenni, Tommy Collingwood, Magoo Laprida and Facu Obregon—have managed to claim vicConfucius tories over far more established teams, such as Coca-Cola and Orchard Hill. We are so proud of these guys, we decided to turn the spotlight on them. Meet them as they pose with a model in our fashion feature, “Power Play,” on page 78. There is much more to explore in the issue—the latest style trends, our quintessential guide to a Delray Beach day trip, our primer on Nantucket (summer’s around the corner!) and the list goes on. If you like what you see, find the extended version of the magazine online at palmbeach illustrated.com and become part of the conversation by connecting with us on social media. Enjoy!
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. —Kahlil Gibran
No matter how plain a woman may be, if truth and honesty are written across her face, she will be beautiful. —

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. —
Beauty is a form of genius—is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. — Oscar Wilde

A Dog’s Tale
When people say they’d like a second life as a dog, they’re talking about a dog like Luke, the black Lab-Weimaraner mix who belongs to jeweler Gregory James Beattie. As the official greeter at Beattie’s Worth Avenue jewelry store, Luke spends his days surrounded by gems, wearing a diamond-studded name tag and receiving affection from all who enter the store. But the friendly pup came from very different and humble beginnings—in a box on the side of a road, left sick and abandoned with his litter of siblings. His true rags-to-riches tale is told in the children’s book Luke’s Story: A Rescue Puppy’s First Year on Palm Beach & Worth Avenue. Written by Beattie’s mother, Susan, and illustrated by well-known Palm Beach artist Sandra Thompson, the book captures Luke’s local adventures, including going for walks on Worth Avenue, attending the Palm Beach holiday tree-lighting ceremony and being named employee of the month. The book is sold at Gregory James Jewelry, at the Classic Bookshop and on lukesstory.com. A portion of sales benefits Big Dog Ranch Rescue, where Luke was adopted. (561-452-5573)

Creative inspiration can come from anywhere, so we talked to a few local visionaries to find out what—or who—their muse is. (561471-2901, palmbeachculture.com) Laura McDermott Matheric, coordinator of the Palm Beach Poetry Festival: “As a poet, my art is always influenced by others’ work around me. I typically develop ekphrastic poetry as a conversation or a commentary stemming from this borrowed muse.” (561-868-2063, palmbeachpoetryfestival.org) Colleen Smith, artistic director of Ballet Palm Beach: “My dancers. They are so beautiful, each in their own way, and sometimes it’s not even physically but who they are.” (561-630-8235, balletpalmbeach.org) William Halliday, sculptor and owner of ArtHouse429 gallery: “Well, I have a girlfriend [laughs], and she would be it. She would agree with that.” (561-231-0429, arthouse429.com) Andrew Kato, producing artistic director of the Maltz Jupiter Theatre and executive producer of the Muse Awards: “My muse is Walt Disney. He was a man of wonderful imagination combined with a strong business sense, and he wasn’t afraid to take risks. He was a magnificent innovator and conceptualizer of groundbreaking concepts.” (561-
575-2223, jupitertheatre.org) Lou Tyrrell, artistic director of the Theatre at Arts Garage: “My muse is the same little voice that told ancient stories around tribal fires. It’s the uncomprehending wonder in the eyes of a newborn, and it’s the belly laugh at some small joyful revelation. My muse is the whisper of my love in the middle of the night.” (561-450-6357, artsgarage.org) Bill Hayes, producing artistic director of Palm Beach Dramaworks: “The plays that we produce are generally dealing with social, moral and political issues of our times and the past. The theater becomes not only a place for entertainment but also a powerful pulpit for expression. I’m inspired by playwrights—classic and contemporary—who deal with this.” (561Read more at palm 514-4042, palmbeachdramaworks.org) beachillustrated. com/muses Scott Guzielek, artistic operations director of the Palm Beach Opera: “The basis of every decision I make is inspired by the music of the opera, so the answer is simple: Composers are my muses. Through the score, they communicate every intention—even hundreds of years later.” (561-833-7888, pbopera.org)

Tucked away on Worth Avenue is Diamante Atelier, a private jewelry company that specializes in natural colored diamonds. Founded by Jose Aman, Diamante is a “one-on-one operation” that works with clients to create handmade, custom treasures with rare and high-quality materials. “They are art pieces, not items,” Aman says. And this isn’t hyperbole: Experts choose each diamond by hand to ensure consistency, baubles are surprisingly lightweight and designs are immaculate from every angle. The company also has an investment branch, Rare Colored Diamonds, which is gradually becoming synonymous with custom jewelry. “You can’t wear stocks and bonds on your forehead,” Aman says. “But this way, you can enjoy your piece and pass it on to future generations.” (561-766-1720, diamanteatelier.com)

High Silversmithing WHO: Emilie Martin, a master silversmith for Christofle Paris and the sole female in the 10-artist workshop AREA OF EXPERTISE: Chasing, the art of elaborately detailing each piece to heighten its realism INSPIRATION: A teenage visit to École Boulle, France's leading school for applied arts ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENT: Recreating Christofle’s 125-year-old tea-service set, Service Courge
By amy woods Does working in a factory full of men present advantages, disadvantages or both? I have heard that the men are better behaved and more productive with a female presence, so I see my unique position as an advantage to the team. Funny enough, I’ve also been told that there’s a lot less swearing, so that’s another plus to my presence as a woman! How has your work on the Service Courge furthered your skills as a master silversmith? To create a full tea service with a tea fountain takes approximately 400 hours, so continuing this tradition is extremely labor-intensive. I have made four since joining Christofle as a silversmith. This particular pattern requires supreme strength and finesse in embossing, chasing and polishing to create the perfect rounded forms and details along the courge’s shape.
When does chasing play a more important role in silversmithing than other crafts? Chasing raises the detail and emphasizes all of the decorative accents, which is essential to the creation of high-quality, detailed pieces. For instance, I might use chasing to bring out the texture of the hide on an elephant sculpture or to enhance the weaving organic lines of the historic courge tea service.
I have heard that men are better behaved and more productive with a female presence, so I see my unique position as an advantage to the team.
What does it take to be an orfèvre? Read Martin’s answer at palmbeach illustrated.com/emiliemartin
Which of the five human senses do you use more dominantly while in front of the third hand? Touch and sound. Feeling the lines and details on the metal is essential, and I listen to hear each of the steel tools as they interact with the silver. Their sounds tell me when I’ve reached completion of a certain detail, while touch confirms it. How did you spend your leisure time in Palm Beach? I loved the feel of Palm Beach. It’s such a beautiful place. I enjoyed a long stroll on the beach and a walk on Worth Avenue to take in the energy of the city.

Simple grandeur reigns on the New England isle—and coveted American destination By Paul Rubio
Nantucket. The very name evokes imagery of a postcard-perfect New England— a land of windswept seascapes, historic lighthouses, a bustling harbor and charming, late-eighteenth century seaport architecture. Over the past century and a half, the former whaling colony 30 miles off of Cape Cod, Massachusetts has evolved into one of America’s most coveted tourist destinations and even earned the title of “Best Island in the World” by National Geographic magazine. Despite cyclical booms in Nantucket real estate and tourism, strict laws governing island development have stymied the onslaught of high-rise condominiums, imposing shopping malls and chain establishments. Environmental stewardship
The 170-foot-tall Sankaty Head Light Lighthouse was built in Nantucket in 1850. It was the first lighthouse in Massachusetts with a Fresnel lens, which was replaced in 1950 with a rotating aerobeacon. The light was automated in 1965, and Coast Guard personnel occupied the station until 1992.

has led to the sanctioning of nearly 50 percent of the island as conservation land. Building regulations have deftly preserved the island’s early architectural heritage to the point of mandating that nearly all construction conform to low-rise, iconic gray-wood shingle and white-trim cottages. In the case of Nantucket, tenacity has yielded an exquisite end game: a petite island of sand dunes, grasslands, cranberry bogs, mansions and quaint, mirror-image cottages, collectively imbuing visitors and residents with a patriotic spirit and a sense of American enchantment. Arrive on Nantucket and you’ll quickly see an era bygone in mainland America is alive and well at sea.
The White Elephant is situated on the harbor, 30 miles outside Nantucket.
Clambakes, fireworks and family gatherings designate summertime. Days consist of bicycle rides, good books, long walks and excellent meals. Myriad trails zigzag across the 14-by-3.5-mile island; some lead to the island’s trio of storied lighthouses, others to uninhabited points along 80-plus miles of beach, still others to expansive swathes of windblown grasslands and the island’s rare flora. Flurries of “hellos” and genuine hospitality welcome passersby, whether browsing the downtown boutiques, ambling pristine Siasconset (pronounced “Sconset”) Beach or frivolously wading in a cranberry bog within the island interior. Families and friends gather for the daffodil festival weekend in April, the wine festival in May, the film festival in June, the boat races in August and the scallop festival in October. Life here is simple yet rich. For those who’ve yet to fork out a few million for a second (or third) home on this enchanted isle, Nantucket Island Resorts (nantucketislandresorts.com) offers the next best thing for visitors. This collection of five luxury properties includes The Wauwinet and the White Elephant, Nantucket’s most esteemed lodging options, open seasonally from mid-April to late October. Sandwiched between the Atlantic Ocean and Nantucket Bay, The Wauwinet (wauwinet.com) rests on a remote strip of land on the island’s northeasternmost reaches. Sybarites gravitate to this boutique Relais & Châteaux property to escape the world and the “hubbub” of downtown Nantucket, 30 minutes away. Con-

The White Elephant (below and right) offers charming guest rooms, architecture and cuisine, including the lobster roll and chowder.
structed around 1875, the history-steeped Wauwinet offers serenity at its finest, with a sprawling bayfront lawn strewn with oversized white loungers idyllic for deep thought and relaxation. All 32 elegantly appointed rooms in this waterfront retreat flaunt traditional seaside beauty, each with singular antiques and furnishings to complement the soft floral prints and wicker ornaments. Afternoons are spent enjoying Port and cheese in the cozy, living-room style lobby, while summer mornings may include kayaking or paddleboarding in the bay or sun worshipping along either of the hotel’s two private beaches—one on the ocean, the other on the bay. At both ends of the summer peak season, cooler temperatures prompt the hotel to heat up the activity roster. During spring and fall, you’re less likely to sunbathe on the lawn and more likely to enjoy a bay cruise, cooking classes with renowned in-house Chef Kyle Zachary, an eco-tour through Great Point Wildlife Refuge, lessons in surfcasting (fishing from the shoreline) or a “lobstering” excursion, where you might catch your butter-poached dinner. Even if you don’t reel in your own meal, you’ll feed your wildest sea-“foodie” and oenophile fantasies at Topper’s, often recognized as the top restaurant on Nantucket.
Most Nantucket sojourns begin with a short flight from Boston, America’s beloved “Cradle of Liberty.” A recent hostile takeover by upscale entities has bestowed the city with an overdue, big-city edge, throwing a Red Sox curve ball into a longstanding collegetown culture. The city’s latest luxury hotel opening: the Revere Hotel (reverehotel.com) off Boston Common, which embraces the apex of Boston’s chic evolution. Tufted leather headboards, sleek work desks, colorful chaise loungers and largerthan-life floor lamps help define the glamorous rooms and suites of this all-balcony hotel. By day, the Revere’s cabanalined pool deck vies for attention with the city’s renowned landmarks. Come dusk, the hotel’s rooftop bar, Rooftop at Revere, erupts with a true summer sophisticate scene. It’s the place to see and be seen with a vodka-infused, strawberry-lemonade cocktail in hand as the city lights illuminate the sky.
Rooftop at Revere (below) is a 16,000-foot outdoor bar and lounge towering seven stories above Boston’s busy streets.
Choose from the extensive wine list—1,450 choices— and commence the evening with an order of local “Restyo” oysters on the half-shell, harvested 300 yards from the hotel. Then feast on that butter-poached local lobster (yours or the chef’s) served over chestnut ravioli, butternut squash and porcini mushrooms in a brown butter sauce. Contrary to the über-tranquil Wauwinet, sister hotel the White Elephant (whiteelephanthotel.com) trumpets loud and proud in the heart of the Nantucket scene. Located alongside the lively harbor and boutique-lined downtown, the White Elephant delivers exquisite accommodations just minutes from the island’s greatest density of shops, galleries, restaurants and museums. True to its name, the hotel employs plenty of white in the interiors of its 53 guest rooms and suites: plantation shutters, walls, select furnishings and organic fine linens, all with the intention of drawing attention to the sea blues through the windows and the roaring orange hues of the working palmbeachillustrated.com | March 2014

fireplaces. Expansive outdoor patios and decks elevate the experience. Through the years, the White Elephant’s Brant Point Grill has become a regional institution, famed for its original homemade New England clam chowder. You can balance out your calories with a lighter main such as Nantucket fluke fillet over charred leek and sweet New England corn ragout or the cedar-planked salmon prepared on the “fire cone,” a Native Americaninspired coal-fired grill.
Beyond the White Elephant, in the heart of downtown, American Seasons (americanseasons.com) is a tried and true locals’ favorite—25 years strong and sourcing all of its ingredients from on-island farms and local fishermen. Dare to indulge in the tobaccorubbed duck breast over hazelnut granola and ginger-rhubarb vinaigrette, and further inoculate your Nantucket experience from the ordinary—well, as ordinary as a vacation to this Utopia-Stepford hybrid can be. «

Known locally as the humanitarian behind the annual Lady in Red Gala, Lois Pope is also the lady in red, white and blue due to her time spent in Washington, D.C. Pope has made regular sojourns to the nation’s capital since 1995, when she first envisioned the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial. After she met with generals and Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, Congress passed a bill establishing the memorial, which was unanimously approved by the National Capital Memorial Advisory Commission.
Vibe: President John F. Kennedy once called it a city with Northern charm and Southern efficiency, but that was its personality in the 1950s and ’60s. Today, it is charming, exciting and endlessly fascinating. Soundtrack: “The Stars and Stripes Forever” by John Philip Sousa Best Time to Go: Early April through the end of May. You’ll avoid the humidity, see the cherry blossoms and, on Memorial Day, witness a great tribute to our fallen veterans. Fashion essentials: Comfortable walking shoes by day (it’s such a great city to walk in) and, as always, a black cocktail dress at night because there are always fascinating political stars at the local watering holes. Local dish she dreams about: The Maryland blue crab cakes served at the Blue Duck Tavern. (202-419-6755, blueducktavern.com) Guilty pleasure: The nearest open shoe store Local Secret: I’m a big fan of i Ricchi (202-835-0459, iricchi. net).

Weekender Fifteen minutes west of Sarasota, the Resort at Longboat Key Club offers 45 holes of golf, a marina that spans 37 acres, 20 state-ofthe-art tennis courts—and shuttle service to access all the fun.
West Coast Playground
The Resort at Longboat Key Club offers a day trip of esteemed activities on the Gulf of Mexico By Jennifer pfaff
John Woods looks out over a patchwork of green, rectangular courts. The sounds of bouncing tennis balls and rubber-soled sneakers screeching against the clay call out from all around. A singles match is being played in front of him, while a group of women on a court to his left laugh as they scurry to swing rackets at soaring tennis balls. Woods, tanned from years under the sun, became the tennis director at the Resort at Longboat Key Club in 1976 after teaching clinics while working for Roy Emerson. At the time, the west coast resort had only six courses—“like a mom and pop shop,” he says. “I could tell it was only going to grow, and I wanted to be part of that growth.” Since undergoing a major renovation in 2009, the Resort at Longboat Key Club now boasts one of the country’s top-ranked tennis programs. The Tennis Gardens contain 20 Har-Tru courts and are home to the Sarasota Open, among other tournaments, regularly drawing such athletes as James Blake, Sam Querrey and John and Patrick McEnroe. Woods and his staff instruct a range of programs, including cardio tennis, clinics of all types and even yoga and stretching classes. A tennis concierge is only a phone call away to arrange a match for any guest who lacks a partner but has an urge to play. As much as 60 percent of the resort’s 400 members started as guests, Woods says, and the tennis program was instrumental in building the membership. But the sport is not the only reason. Located 66
on the Gulf of Mexico, the four-diamond resort is a 410-acre playground that includes 45 holes of golf, a 291-slip marina (the largest on Florida’s west coast) and a white-sand beachfront for kayaking, paddleboarding or simply lounging. When a day trip is in order, the Resort at Longboat Key Club presents an excursion with Aura Jets that satisfies every whim. With a travel package that begins at $8,500, visitors take a private plane from any Florida airport to Sarasota’s, where a limousine will escort them to the resort. Guests are given a room for the day with a bottle of Champagne and the freedom to enjoy the property’s amenities, whether they desire a tennis lesson with Woods, boating in the Gulf, a massage at the spa or a swim in the beachfront pool. When hunger strikes, guests can head to one of six restaurants, the newest of which is the Tavern and Whiskey Bar. Casual during the day and sophisticated at night, the farm-to-table establishment overlooks the moss-draped golf course and sources ingredients locally, including from its own gardens and groves. Resort staff whisks visitors around the grounds in private cars or golf carts and drives them back to the airport when it’s time to fly home. As guests exit, they pass the original six “mom and pop” tennis courts near the entrance—evidence of the resort’s humble roots that have sprouted into a luxury amusement park worth exploring, if only for a day.

It’s an evolution of the previous-generation V12 Vantage S with a few nips and tucks to justify a trade up. That iconic Aston front grille now comes with either black carbon fiber or titanium mesh in place of the traditional horizontal slats. At each corner are new 10-spoke, 19-inch alloy wheels. Thankfully, there’s a lot more substance to add to the style. Compared to the previous Vantage S, the new V12 packs an extra 45 horseys, 37 more torques and maybe 5,000 more decibels. There’s also a new adaptive suspension system borrowed from the Vanquish that lets the driver adjust damping in three stages: normal, sport and track. It’s all awesome until you talk about the transmission. The last-generation Vantage S came with only one gear-swopping choice, a wonderfully precise six-speed manual. But when developing this new version, Aston thought buyers might prefer an automatic. There’s nothing wrong with that, but the choice of automatic turned out to be less than stellar. Aston opted for a seven-speed single-clutch automatic from a race gearbox builder. Under anything other than pedal-to-the-metal acceleration, the shifts are lumpy, clunky and often downright unpleasant. But with an engine like this, you can forgive anything. The snarling symphony it plays through the exhausts as the revs soar toward the 7,200 rpm redline is beyond magical. The way the Vantage S scythes through curves is unreal. There is so much grip here, so much poise, so much balance, it’s near impossible to find the limits of adhesion on public roads. But it sure is fun trying. You’ll pay $184,995 for the thrill of owning this 12-cylinder clap of thunder. Grab one while you can—before they start cutting cylinders and bolting electric motors to it. «

WELCOME IN Stephen and JoAnna Myers invite new friends into their Palm Beach home to take part in the Ultimate Dinner Party
By Mary murray Photography by Jerry rabinowitz
106-ULTIMEATE DINNER-0314.indd 107
Stephen and JoAnna Myers are seasoned entertainers. The Palm Beachers, who tied the knot in December, take pride in opening up their home to friends and, on occasion, a stranger or two—or 12. “Steve loves entertaining,” JoAnna says. “So it was a natural fit to be a host for the Ultimate Dinner Party.” In mid-November, in the midst of wedding preparations, Steve and JoAnna hosted a group of new friends during the Ultimate Dinner Party, a charity event benefiting the Children’s Home Society of Florida. The annual evening begins with a cocktail party before attendees splinter off into small groups to enjoy dinner at various homes throughout Palm Beach. This was Steve and JoAnna’s second year participating, welcoming 12 guests to dinner. “It happened to be a group we weren’t all that familiar with, which we view as fun and different,” Steve says. On the evening of the event, the couple greeted
their guests with open arms and an open bar. After everyone had a drink in hand, Steve asked attendees to introduce themselves and share something interesting about what they do or enjoy. Professions ranged from author to hotelier to treasure hunter, making for intriguing discussions. “All of a sudden, the conversation was all over the place,” Steve says. “Everybody was engaged in conversation,” JoAnna adds. “One of the best parts about this Ultimate Dinner Party is you open your home to a bunch of people you don’t know.” Having said that, she notes, “It’s amazing how small of a community Palm Beach is—we all seem to have some kind of commonality.” Entertaining is just one of the Myers’ favorite pastimes. Steve is a founding member and owner of Pine Creek Sporting Club in Okeechobee and has a passion for shooting, fishing and traveling. JoAnna, who is learning to shoot and fish with Steve, has always shared his love for the outdoors. palmbeachillustrated.com | MARCH 2014 107

Steve also studied art in college and is an avid collector—a hobby “I never knew I was going to be able to afford,” he says. This array of interests makes it easy for the two to connect with people from all walks of life. “Steve loves being social and opening up his house and sharing his wines and exchanging conversation with people,” JoAnna says. “And stories,” Steve adds. “If I’m talking to a guy who isn’t interested in the outdoors, then we’ll talk about the art or we’ll talk about the wine.” The evening’s lively conversation carried over to dinner, which was served a little after 8 p.m. in the formal dining room. Like the rest of the home, the dining room features a contemporary-traditional style accented with pops of artwork. A few days before the dinner, Steve acquired a Robert Motherwell painting and rearranged the dining room to accommodate the piece.
“It just didn’t look right on the wall, the coloration,” Steve says. “So we mirrored the wall, and that just popped the painting and it became a whole different feeling in the room.” Beneath the newly acquired Motherwell, guests dined on china and tableware from the hosts’ own collection, including Hermès and Tiffany & Co. plates, Riedel glasses and Puiforcat silverware. Duane Murrell of VM Flowers crafted light and refreshing floral centerpieces of green cymbidium orchids and yellow peonies in contemporary silver vessels to complement the home’s decor. Candelabras and small lamps from Baccarat completed the table. Chef Roderick G. Smith, who designed the menu with conceptual help from JoAnna, prepared the meal. “I just wanted something healthy,” JoAnna says. “I wanted to offer something for everybody.” The meal began with a Florida

kale salad with grilled duck breast garnished with crispy bacon, blue cheese, candied pecans, kiln-dried cranberries, sweet potato crisps and pomegranate vinaigrette. Next was a braised Key West black grouper with shaved fennel and crispy leeks topped
with an heirloom tomato and saffron broth. The fish course was followed by a roasted rack of Colorado lamb with a rosemary demiglace and accompanied by Dauphinoise potato crescents, grilled asparagus, a baby vegetable medley and roasted pearl onions.
“People were sharing each other’s lamb chops!” JoAnna remarks. “Every lamb chop was consumed.” Dessert included a passed cheese trio, dark chocolate truffles and a Grand Marnier soufflé with Tahitian vanilla bean sauce. When it came to selecting wine, Steve was more than happy to share bottles from his collection. The couple uncorked three vintages: William Cole Ten Cabernet, Del Dotto Cinghiale Family Reserve Chardonnay and Littorai Pinot Noir.

Steve shared some of his favorite wines during the meal.
During the meal, Steve and JoAnna made a point to share themselves as well as their wine. Given the diverse crowd, JoAnna decided to employ a seating chart. “I think that’s really important, especially when trying to make sense of a dynamic where you don’t really know your guests,” she says. “You want to make them feel comfortable; however, you want them to mingle with everybody. People were not far from their spouses—they were within conversation distance— but sitting beside them was somebody completely new.” Steve adds: “We make a point to get up during dinner and switch seats and mingle. I’ll go around and ask how everybody is doing, and she’ll do the same.” Following dinner, the party returned to the bar. “It’s the most used room,” JoAnna says. Over nightcaps, the conversation turned to the couple’s impending nuptials and Steve’s world travels. “I don’t think anybody wanted to leave, honestly,” JoAnna says. Leave they did at around 11 p.m., exiting with many new friends. “Everybody was so gracious,” JoAnna says. “All of our guests wrote thank you letters, and some people even went as far as giving an exchange gift or sending flowers. It was really nice.” For this dynamic couple, who are as
106-ULTIMEATE DINNER-0314.indd 111
comfortable wearing camouflage in Okeechobee as they are sipping cocktails in Palm Beach, the joy of hosting the Ultimate Dinner Party truly lies in giving back to a great cause and making new friends. “Don’t be afraid to entertain strangers. It’s often more fun than doing the same thing over and over,” Steve says. “And don’t be afraid to share your wine!” Perfect parting words for a perfectly lovely evening. « palmbeachillustrated.com | MARCH 2014

ON THE AVE A day in Delray is the perfect mini-getaway By Michelle Lee Ribeiro
alm Beach’s neighbor to the south, Delray Beach, is like its eccentric little sister. Sometimes we get caught in the social whirl and forget that Delray’s vibrant art scene and top-notch restaurants offer a dose of downto-earth funk and fun—often a welcome respite from the glitz and glitter of the season. Those who haven’t been to Florida’s so-called “Village by the Sea” lately are in for a delightful surprise. Downtown Delray Beach has absolutely blossomed with new and interesting restaurants, shops and cultural venues—located along downtown’s main thoroughfare, Atlantic Avenue, and on surrounding streets. The numbers don’t lie: There are 49 unique retail stores, 28 galleries and entertainment centers, 111 dining establishments, 17 hotels, and a smattering of theaters and live-music establishments. Since there’s so much to do “on the Ave,” here’s an itinerary to help you get the most out of your day trip.

You can rent a kayak right on Delray Beach, or explore a wreck site diving or snorkeling.
Without a doubt, the best way to start your day in Delray is with brunch at Sundy House, one of the most lavish and delicious dining experiences in Palm Beach County. Just off the main avenue, enjoy views of the lush Taru Garden while dining on the best fresh seafood, a carving station, fruit and much more—including unlimited bubbly. Cheers to that! After brunch, grab the morning paper and enjoy a cup of coffee in one of the garden gazebos. Or just stroll the tropical fruit trees, bamboo groves and grotto-like swimming pool surrounded by nature. (106 S. Swinton Ave., 561-272-5678, sundyhouse.com)
9:30 a.m. Before you hit the beach, walk off that shrimp omelet with a little window-shopping. Sequin—the popular Worth Avenue boutique—has a new location here, displaying

fun, bold jewelry. The shop itself is gorgeous, all turquoise and white. Browse the bins of brightly colored bangles and magnificent metallic pieces. (445 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-243-9373, sequin-nyc.com) Forgot your flip-flops for the beach? No problem. Pop into Tootsies and pick up a new pair of flats, sandals or T-straps (310 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-278-7879). And while you’re at it, treat yourself to a new swimsuit or wrap at Kokonuts, right next door. (561-819-9443)
11 a.m. You’ve got everything you need, so head east to the shore. Rent a cabana for ultimate relaxation or a kayak for an hour of adventure. Extreme ocean lovers will want to head to the south end of the beach (down by the Seagate Beach Club) to the site of the sunken SS Inchulva— a popular wreck-dive for snorkelers and divers alike.

Dada—French for “hobby horse”—has an extensive mojito list and a delicious lunch menu.
1 p.m. Getting hungry? Wiggle the sand out of your toes and head back to the Avenue. City Oyster is a great spot for lunch (it’s owned by the same folks as West Palm Beach’s City Cellar, Grease and Rocco’s Tacos). Share a tuna carpaccio with shaved fennel to start. Or stick with the oysters on the half shell, for which the restaurant is known. For main course, our faves include Maine lobster rolls, sushi, fish tacos and Bob’s veggie nutty chicken salad. (213 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-272-0220, cityoysterdelray.com) If you’re there on a Thursday-Sunday, when it’s open during the day, grab a table on the intimate patio at Tryst. Try the cobb salad or the eponymous burger. (4 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-921-0201, trystdelray.com) A more casual, artsy crowd lunches at Dada, a bit north of Atlantic on Swinton Avenue. Inside, each room is decorated differently, with an overall feel of a speakeasy—all mismatched furniture and dim lighting. But sit outside for the people watching. The eatery—owned by Rodney

Mayo, who operates Hullabaloo and Longboards in West Palm Beach—serves light fare like endive salad and main courses like the favorite chicken del Rio. Oh, and it has the best specialty mojito menu you’ll find outside Cuba. (52 N. Swinton Ave., 561-330-3232, sub-culture.org/dada)
2:30 p.m. You’d be hard-pressed to find a more vibrant art scene in Palm Beach County than in downtown Delray Beach. So explore! But before you do, stop by local favorite Spot Coffee for a pickme-up to go (44 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-455-4041, spotcoffee. com). And if you’re not too full, you must stop by Le Macaron to sample the tasty French pastrties. No excuses: They’re glutenfree. (520 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-266-3860, lemacaron-us.com)

A resident since January, the gallery houses modern, original and limited-edition works by Tom Wesselmann, Peter Max, Ken Keeley and top-selling artist of 2013 Romero Britto. (524 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-852-0017, sundook.com)
4:15 p.m. Off the beaten path, Pineapple Grove Arts District is bustling with creativity. Aside from the many fine arts galleries in the area, you can visit Artists Alley—where local resident artists open their studios to the public every Saturday. There are also plenty of cafes, restaurants and boutiques
in the Grove, so you could spend an entire day just here. (N.E. 2nd Ave. and N.E. 4th Ave.)
6 p.m. Cocktail time! It is happy hour, after all. Check out the trendy bar Salt Seven for excellent people watching and a very cool ambience. Grab a seat in one of the comfy outdoor sofas and sip a glass of Malbec while enjoying a cigar (they sell them here). You never know who you might end up hobnobbing with—stars like Sofia Vergara have been spotted enjoying the Salt Seven scene. (32 S.E. 2nd Ave., 561-274-7258, salt7.com) For outstanding views, try Deck84—it overlooks the Intracoastal and has great local bands on the weekends (840 E. Atlantic Ave., 561-665-8484, deck84.com).

If you thought ahead, you booked a room here and will head back home in the morning. But before you rest your weary head, enjoy a nightcap (or two) at the Atlantic Grille. The award-winning venue has nightly musical entertainment—the perfect ambience to relax before you turn in for the night. And don’t forget to check out the 2,500-gallon shark tank. If you do stay, stop by the concierge to book your activities for the next morning: a tee time, a tennis court, or perhaps a hot stone treatment at the 8,000-square-foot spa. It might just inspire you to do it all over again. (1000 E. Atlantic Ave., 877-57-SEAGATE , theseagatehotel.com) « palmbeachillustrated.com | MARCH 2014

Brunch On The Beach
As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to return to Delray’s acclaimed 50 Ocean, there’s now an à la carte Sunday brunch to enjoy with the stunning water view from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Chef Blake Malatesta has added a quartet of classic egg dishes and a group of sharable plates to the menu, but you can still get your 50 Ocean favorites: crispy whole belly clams, Devilish Eggs (stuffed with smoked paprika, smoked salmon, chorizo bits and Portuguese goat cheese) and the Biscuits and Belly (pork belly with buttermilk biscuits and white chocolate pepper gravy). On the liquid side, don’t miss the bottomless mimosas or the build-your-own Grey Goose Bloody Mary bar with more than 30 ingredients.

Your Pasta Horoscope Ordering a dish in a restaurant can be a coincidence of mood, but preparing something at home is closer to a culinary Rorschach Test. What does your pasta say about you? Here are some theories about what your favorite noodles reveal. —M.S.
Risotto You’re obviously patient or else you wouldn’t stand at a stove for 25 minutes lovingly stirring a pan full of Arborio rice. Your soul is classical and stylish, making you capable of elegant, artistic projects.
Spaghetti Puttanesca Edgy and creative, you tend to take calculated risks and can be the life of the party (especially after several glasses of Chianti).
Linguine with clams Don’t listen to cynics who criticize you for watching too many reruns of The Sopranos; you have a healthy respect for tradition and a reverence for family. You favor designs with clean, crisp lines and no wasted space.
Stuffed shells You may be spending too much time at Disney or the local water park. Push your boundaries, spread your wings and head for the casino.
Fettuccine Alfredo While some dismiss you as a boring plodder, you’re actually cool and methodical, with the patience to see a project through to the end—the tortoise that usually beats the hare.
Sometimes, the best things in life are found in the unlikeliest places. Such is the case with Paradiso Ristorante, an upscale Italian establishment tucked away in unexpected Lake Worth since 1997. Self-taught chef and owner Angelo Romano hails from Massa Lubrense, on the Amalfi Coast, where he grew up making olive oil and wine on a 200-year-old family farm dotted with lemon trees. His upbringing in an Italian culinary family plays into his recipe making (he credits his grandmother as a prominent influence), and his longstanding reputation has drawn a crowd of regulars. (During season, “we’ve got to pack them in like sardines,” he jokes.) For the first time, Paradiso is offering smaller portions in a lounge menu that features sharable plates, cheese offerings and wine. Guests can nibble on savory bites like branzino ceviche with caviar, grilled octopus with potatoes or delicate and light veal meatballs. Romano’s Italian cooking includes Floridian twists when appropriate; the salmon tartare is made with Granny Smith apple, the tuna carpaccio has mango and the zucchini blossom features shrimp. A “wow” moment comes with an order of hazelnut nitrogen gelato, made fresh tableside in a theatri-
cal presentation in which a cloud of nitrogen erupts from a bowl as a server stirs furiously. Food is only part of the story at Paradiso. The establishment boasts 700 bottles of wine, mostly esoteric labels, of which 60 percent is Italian, 30 percent American and 10 percent everything else. Even in small portions, Romano’s passion for Italian cooking shines in every dish. Guests leave with a friendly “Ciao!”, an ironically appropriate parting that will also welcome Paradiso’s newest regulars upon their guaranteed return.

King of Sourdough local foodies know how hard it is to find first-rate bread in the area, particularly sourdough. Thanks to the miracle of overnight shipping, though, the staff of life can be delivered to your door. The global sourdough king is Poilâne, established in Paris in 1932. The family company is now run by the third generation, but the principles haven’t changed: wood-fired ovens, stone-ground flour, sea salt from Brittany and the magic sourdough starter from the previous batch. If you can’t get away to the City of Light, Blue Provence in Palm Beach offers a twice-weekly delivery from Paris. The price for a miche (a round, four-pound loaf) is $50—hefty when you consider the same bread in Paris is 8.85 Euros (around $12) but reasonable when you add in the overnight shipping charges.

Sometimes, Simpler is Better Classic cocktails are only classics if they’re well made. Many of the famous pre-Prohibition libations are deceptively simple, consisting of just a handful of ingredients, but the basis of their reputation rests on the quality of those ingredients. Like most classics, the origin of the Manhattan is unclear. It’s mentioned in an 1862 book by famed bartender Jerry Thomas, but many believe it was invented at New York City’s Manhattan Club in the 1870s at the request of Jennie Jerome (also known as Lady Randolph Churchill, Winston’s mother). Locally, one of the best versions is made at Bar Louie on Clematis Street. Bar Louie’s drink consists of Maker’s 46 Bourbon, Noilly Pratt Sweet Vermouth and Fee Brothers Orange Bitters—stirred, never shaken. Maker’s 46 differs from the standard Maker’s Mark by receiving additional aging in barrels with French oak staves. The resulting cocktail is a charm on a cool night.

Scenes from Calistoga Ranch: the view, a dinner in the wine cave and the cave’s entrance.
Thoughts of owning a winery often fire the imaginations of oenophiles. Fractional ownership makes the dream achievable. By Mark SPivak
Other than opening a restaurant, owning a winery is probably one of the most widespread fantasies on the planet. However, prices are steep. Properties in Napa Valley, for instance, begin around $5 million and go up from there, while properties in France can be costlier still. The answer for many wine lovers is fractional vineyard ownership. For a price roughly equivalent to what it costs to join a top country club, you can purchase a tract of vineyard land to call your own. Even better, you can leave the winemaking to trained individuals who don’t mind getting their hands dirty and simply collect your wine once a year. What follows are some of the most popular options in this burgeoning category. The Napa Valley Reserve: Founded in 2003, this project has provided the template for many that followed. Its credentials are impeccable; the property is owned by none other than Harlan Estate founder Bill Harlan, and the wines are made by the Harlan team. Members pay an initiation fee ranging from $155,000 to $175,000 and have the option to purchase an allocation ranging from six to 75 cases at $83 per bottle. And the fee is refundable on resale. The Reserve is a complete hospitality complex containing a winery, blending barn, caves and garden, and the staff hosts social and educational events for members throughout the year. You’re welcome to
work the harvest if you so desire, or sit at home and watch the progress on a webcam. Calistoga Ranch: Nestled in a canyon in northern Napa, Calistoga Ranch is part of the Auberge Resorts group. Several years ago, the resort offered 27 luxury residences for sale. The two-bedroom lodges cover 3,000 square feet, and ownership on a fractional basis starts at $475,000. Included are spa amenities, social and dining programs, access to top Napa vintners and the opportunity to participate in winemaking and blending. They’re currently sold out, but don’t fret—you can occasionally snag one on the after-market. Wine Estate Capital Management: This Netherlands-based company offers fractional ownership in four different wine estates, two in France and two in South Africa. Membership starts at $100,000. The participants can spend between three and five weeks each year at the property and receive 12 cases of wine. The company also advertises member benefits from profit sharing and real estate appreciation. La Vida Buena: Located outside the city of San Raphael in Argentina, this winery is selling five-acre lots for $130,000. Owners can specify the grapes they want planted, and once their vines mature, the grapes can be sold to wineries. La Vida Buena can also arrange to have wine made to sell as well as for your consumption. Unlike The Napa

O. Fournier decided to offer fractional ownership in 350 acres to a maximum of 85 investors; land is priced at $150,000 per hectare (about 2.5 acres).

Orchid Care 101 Lynn Lapin and Neal Locher of Elegant Orchids in Delray Beach share tips for growing phalaenopsis orchids. (561-496-5165, elegantorchids.com) u This orchid needs less light than other varieties and does well in most indoor conditions. It requires bright filtered light but no direct sun. At home, an east-facing window or a shaded west or south window is best. u Feel the medium in the pot before adding water. Phalaenopsis like to be kept slightly moist. Do not water until the medium starts to dry. u The average watering cycle is a week to 10 days. When the flower needs water, thoroughly soak the plant until water comes out of the bottom. Let the plant drain completely, and never let an orchid sit in water. Be careful not to get water in the crown of the plant; this is where the new leaves emerge. u If the orchid is indoors, mist the buds with a spray bottle to prevent premature drop caused from air-conditioning.

Their Perfect Drive Golf community experts Cris Tamasi and Michael Bellemeurâ€™s knowledge of the market enables them to win big for their clients. by Nila Do
Michael Bellemeur and Cris Tamasi
It takes a true expert to recognize and appreciate the finer parts of golf club living, and Realtors Cris Tamasi and Michael Bellemeur are just that. With their extensive knowledge of each course, amenity and home in the northern Palm Beaches’ best golf communities, it’s no wonder they are the go-to real estate tandem. Part of the luxury real estate firm Waterfront Properties and Club Communities, Tamasi and Bellemeur have spent considerable time at each golf community. Tamasi has lived exclusively in golf communities since moving to the area in 1986. An active soul, Tamasi played tennis all her life and picked up the golfing bug later, and hasn’t put down the clubs since. Bellemeur is a former golf pro and was a collegiate athlete in the sport. He’s played every course in the area and applies that same steadfast, tunnel-vision focus he has when playing golf to his real estate career. Together, the two have concentrated on providing buyers and sellers first-class services at Old Palm Golf Club, Old Marsh Golf Club, and The Ritz-Carlton Residences at Trump National. “I’m so passionate about what I do,” Tamasi says. “I wake up looking forward to finding people their homes. Some clients even joke around and call me ‘Johnny on the Spot’ because I respond so quickly to any question they ask me.” Bellemeur echoes his partner’s sentiments. “Being a former golf pro, I feel like I can give potential buyers a different vantage point. I’m familiar with the communities from a golfer’s perspective, so I can marry golf with the residential life.” When professional golfer Ian Baker Finch needed to sell his Harbour Isle home, he knew Tamasi would get the job done. After working with another real estate agent who was unable to sell the home, the Open Championship winner turned to his close friend to help sell the home. “Working with Cris made us see that there was a totally different way of presenting the house,” Baker Finch says. “Cris really worked the presentation of the house and decluttered the home to make it more visually appealing.” Tamasi was able to sell the home within months. When it came time to find a new home for the Baker Finch family, Tamasi showed a model home in Old Palm the golfing family fell in love with. “She dealt extremely well with the other side of the deal both times,” Baker Finch says. “In fact, what we noticed is that she’s done lots of business with repeat clients. She lives in the area, and she understands the market.” For Tamasi, it’s also about understanding the clients—something she demonstrated on a recent evening. During an early Saturday morning, a couple visited an Old Palm property owned by Patricia and Richard Theryoung. After leaving to visit several other area homes they were considering, the couple came back that evening to revisit the Old Palm property. Waiting for them was Tamasi, with gourmet wine and cheese in hand.
“I just know what it’s like looking at homes all day,” Tamasi empathizes. “It’s tiring and exhausting. So I wanted to give them a chance to relax after their long day with wine and cheese.” A couple hours later, that Old Palm home was sold. And Sotheby’s International Realty Palm Beach Realtor Carole Koeppel couldn’t have had happier buyers. “When I am working with Cris and Michael, I know what to expect,” Koeppel says. “Real estate is about service, and that’s exactly what they did for this couple.” For Patricia Theryoung, selling her Old Palm home was something she was afraid wouldn’t happen for some time. Her and her husband’s beautiful French-style home was on the market for two years with other Realtors. After switching to work with Tamasi and Bellemeur, the Theryoungs realized how easy their home was to sell with Tamasi’s quick actions. “We had a friend who didn’t even have to list a house because Cris and Michael sold it beforehand,” Patricia says. “With their access to Waterfront Properties and their client’s needs, she had the right people who came in. We were so pleased with it.” Close friend Peter Krones finds himself constantly referring Tamasi. “She takes a personal interest in finding the right transaction for her clients, and I think it shows her success,” he says. Bellemeur consistently has the same drive and focus with each client. Past clients include Major winner Keegan Bradley as well as LPGA golfers Azahara Munoz and Alison Walshe, who credit Bellemeur’s intimate insight of local golf courses as important reasons for working with him. Recently, Bellemeur sold a $3.3 million home to a couple who ended up closing on the home fewer than 60 days after it was listed. “It’s nice having other Waterfront specialists in specific markets who have access to great homes up for sale,” Bellemeur says. “It’s great knowing the perfect home is just a phone call away.” A recent client, Rich Eannarino, says working with Bellemeur on finding the right home for him and his wife was an ideal transaction. “Michael understood what we were looking for,” Eannarino says. “He was very understanding, and he was just a good person to work with.” Homeowner Scott Rocklage felt the same way after he found a home through Bellemeur. Rocklage approached Bellemeuer after noting his great reputation at The Ritz-Carlton Residences at Trump National. “Out of all the real estate agents we’ve worked with over the years, Michael is probably the most organized, thorough and energetic,” Rocklage says. For Tamasi and Bellemeur, it’s no surprise most of their relationships with clients have blossomed into friendships, and after all is said and done, there is definitely a round or two of golf to be enjoyed.

(App for thAT!) There are many apps that promise a better night’s rest. One of our favorites is the Proactive Sleep Alarm Clock. In addition to basic alarm features, this app uses the science of sleep to provide data to optimize sleeping patterns. By monitoring body movements, the app tracks your sleep state and offers predictions on the best time for you to go to bed and to wake up. Users can also keep a sleep diary and identify factors that might affect sleep, like exercise, diet and alcohol use. For the adventurous sleepers, the dream manipulation feature plays phrases and sounds when the user is most likely to be in a dream state, providing the ideal environment for lucid dreaming.

As much as we try to fight it with cries of “I’ll sleep when I’m dead,” sleep is a necessity of life. National Sleep Awareness Week, taking place March 2-9, stresses the importance of and spreads awareness for the need for sleep. The annual observance begins with the release of the National Sleep Foundation’s Sleep in America poll results and culminates with the clock change for daylight saving time. We’ve compiled a list of seven sleep facts— one for each day of National Sleep Awareness Week—to expand your sleep vocabulary.
The Guinness world record for most sleepless hours was set by Randy Gardner in 1964 when he went 264 hours—11 days—without sleep. The Guinness Book of Records no longer supports a sleep-deprivation record because of the associated health risks. According to the National Sleep Foundation, insomnia is characterized by four symptoms: difficulty falling sleep, waking up too early and not being able to fall back asleep, frequent awakenings and waking up feeling unrefreshed.
Why do we need sleep? According to a study published in the journal Science, scientists have found that while the brain sleeps, it is also eliminating harmful waste proteins accumulated between brain cells during waking hours. Humans sleep with their entire brains, but some marine mammals, like dolphins and whales, need to maintain consciousness during rest so they can surface to breathe, therefore sleeping in only one hemisphere of the brain at a time. Right before we fall asleep, our body temperature drops by one to two degrees. Many researchers believe this change in temperature helps to induce sleep. A study of more than 1,000 people found the most popular sleeping position is the fetal position, representing 41 percent of those surveyed. Interestingly, twice as many women as men sleep in this position. Our internal circadian clock controls periods of sleepiness and wakefulness, and it dips and rises at different times of the day. The strongest drive to sleep occurs between 2 and 4 in the morning and 1 and 3 in the afternoon.

Above: The OMsignal shirt monitors biometrics, which can then be reviewed on a smartphone app (far right). Right: Athos gear uses embedded sensors to relay data.
There are many ways to satisfy a green thumb, and aquaponics just might be the most unique. Aquaponics is the synthesis of traditional aquaculture (raising aquatic animals in tanks) and hydroponics (growing plants in water). As described by Patrick Small of Funky Buddha Aquaponics in Fort Pierce, plants and fish in the aquaponic system work in a symbiotic environment: The fish provide nutrients to the plants, which rehydrate the animals with cleansed water. “This system can provide two sources of food: edible fish such as tilapia and catfish, and many different types of vegetables,” Small says. We asked Small to enlighten us with the other benefits of aquaponics. (772-359-7509, funkybuddha.net) What do aquaponic systems look like? Aquaponic systems can have many shapes and sizes and can be customized to a specific growing area. Some systems look like raised garden beds
We live in a smart world. Our phones are smart, our televisions are smart—why should our clothing be any different? Some smart garments designed to make users more in tune with their bodies are slated for release this year. For fitness fanatics, Athos has designed a long-sleeve shirt and stretchy pants that use electromyography technology to track muscle activity. Sensors embedded within the garments send data to a wearable device that connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone app. Following a workout, you can review your muscle exertion levels as well as heart rate and use this data to better inform subsequent workouts. (liveathos.com) If you’re looking to incorporate smart wear into your everyday life, try OMsignal. These biosensing shirts monitor your biometrics (including heart rate, breathing, calories burned and even emotions) to be reviewed later on an online dashboard or a smartphone app. Like Athos, OMsignal shirts are outfitted with sensors that relay data to a Bluetooth-enabled device. Unlike Athos, which focuses on fitness, OMsignal products aim to help users make better lifestyle decisions and become more in tune with day-today health and wellness. (omsignal.com)
with a fish tank nearby. Other systems use vertical growing towers and look like a hanging garden. What sorts of vegetation and marine life can grow in these systems? Almost anything you can think of can be grown in an aquaponic system. I have personally grown over 20 different types of edible plants in my systems. A few examples are basil, kale, tomatoes, cucumbers and watercress. You can also grow flowers or other ornamentals. The most common type of marine life kept in aquaponic systems is fish, but one could have snails, prawns or crayfish as well. What do you see as the biggest benefit to owning an aquaponic system? The ability to grow crops all year, instead of just during a growing season. Because the system uses water instead of soil, the plants can stay cool in the summer. I have been able to grow winter crops such as kale and Swiss chard during the Florida summer.
rheumatoid research Scientists at the Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter have developed a compound that reduces joint inflammation in animal models of rheumatoid arthritis. According to the institute, more than two million Americans suffer from the disease. The compound identified by Dr. Patrick R. Griffin and his team of researchers is known as SR2211 and targets a nuclear receptor that directly affects the immune system. In the study, SR2211 blocked development of all symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis in mice within eight to 10 days of treatment. Griffin believes this development could lead to a therapeutic solution to inflammation and joint destruction caused by rheumatoid arthritis. (561-228-2000, scripps.edu)
Walk for a Cause
The first weekend of March presents two opportunities to work up a sweat for a good cause. First, on March 1, JDRF hosts the Walk to Cure Diabetes starting at the Meyer Amphitheatre in downtown West Palm Beach. Participants can walk, rollerblade, bike and even skateboard the three-mile path along Flagler Drive, and proceeds help fund research to prevent, treat and cure type 1 diabetes and its complications. (561-686-7701, jdrf.org/greaterpalmbeach) Return to the Meyer Amphitheatre the next day for the Palm Beach Walk Now for Autism Speaks. As the nation’s largest grassroots autism walk program, Walk Now takes place across the United States and Canada. The Palm Beach event will feature a resource fair expo, entertainment and free children’s activities. (walknowfor autismspeaks.org/palmbeach)

Don’t Tell Freedom (That’s My Dog) That I Have Another “Best Friend” In Jupiter Medical Center.
Harold “Bud” Stambaugh is a retired Marine, and Freedom is his trained service dog and best friend. When Bud discovered he had lung cancer, he reached out to Dr. K. Adam Lee, one of the nation’s leading experts and pioneers in minimallyinvasive robotic surgery for lung cancer, and the first lung surgeon in Florida to perform robotic-assisted thoracic surgery.
“I told Dr. Lee I needed somebody to not only cure my lung cancer, but to take me through the whole process.” – Harold “Bud” Stambaugh & Freedom
Bud called Dawn Bitgood, ARNP, Oncology Care Specialist, and she walked him through the entire experience – from pre-op, to surgery and rehabilitation. Today, Bud is cancer-free and credits the entire Thoracic Surgery and Lung Program team at Jupiter Medical Center with saving his life. To learn more about our comprehensive Thoracic Surgery & Lung Program, call Dawn Bitgood at (561) 263-3604 or visit jupitermed.com/lung.
Over 80% Of Lung Cancers Have A Chance To Be Cured If Detected At An Early Stage. CT lung screening gives you that chance. If you’re a smoker or former smoker, early detection of lung cancer is the key to preventing more serious problems later. Low-dose CT lung screening at Jupiter Medical Center gives you the ability to take that positive first step to safeguard your health. Based on the National Lung Screening Trial guidelines, recommendations are: • 55 to 74 years old • No personal history of cancer • Current or former heavy smokers • No signs or symptoms of lung disease • Less than 10 years since quitting The charge for the screening is $99. As with many screenings, most insurance companies do not cover this procedure. Please call (561) 263-4437 to schedule an appointment.

In August 1980, Beth Pine started working for Neiman Marcus as a sales associate in women’s sportswear at the Bal Harbour store—and was promoted within a week. Her career took her to Dallas;Washington, D.C.; Minneapolis; and Westchester, New York before landing in Palm Beach, where she has been general manager of the Worth Avenue store for the past eight years. Known for her community involvement and style sense, she founded the Beth’s Picks luncheon, one of the season’s must-attends.

Favorite look for spring I am loving pink, blues and mint for spring—think Jordan almonds. Head-to-toe dressing in white is also very chic. Must-have beauty Anything Tom Ford, from lipstick to Black Orchid fragrance Tuning in to I have a very diverse taste in music, but I must admit one of my favorite artists of the moment is Justin Timberlake because of his versatility. Now reading I prefer newspapers and magazines over The Greenbrier Resort books—one of them, of course, being the latest issue of Palm Beach Illustrated. Dying to try A bottle of Screaming Eagle Cabernet while sitting outside at the winery in Napa Valley Travel gem The Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia Restaurant of the moment I have so many favorites depending on what I am craving: Chez Jean-Pierre, Table 26, Palm Beach Grill, Café Sapori, Café Chardonnay Best cocktail scene HMF at The Breakers Go-to hostess gift Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookies On her bucket list Touring all of Italy with my boyfriend: exploring the Italian Riviera, Lake Como, the Amalfi Coast and island hopping to Capri Lake Como, Italy
