From the Editor
It’s June. Most people dream of infinity-edged pools, tiki cocktails, islands in the middle of nowhere, and hammocks swaying in breezes. We dream of rustling ball gowns, the clinking of Champagne glasses, and dancing amid laughter. Let me explain. Every year in June, we present our season finale, a photographic roundup recounting the season’s most memorable moments, the most fabulous movers and shakers, and the events that define Palm Beach. Think of it as a yearbook of sorts, every photo in which has been thoughtfully selected (after looking through thousands of images) for its energy, caught-in-the-moment quality, and ability to evoke the essence of the Palm Beach social season. In this package we feature 400-plus photos that make up a capsule representation of the best of season. As you look through the season finale beginning on page 44, you’ll surely smile as you recall the fun and marvel anew at the imaginative decor. You’ll practically taste the seared scallops at the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival. And you’ll be dazzled by the grace of the polo ponies—to say nothing of the glamorous field-side fashions. Of course, there is more to our June issue than social images. The aforementioned infinity-edged pools and tiki cocktails of summer figure prominently in our pages. Turn to Escape on page 35 for our report on the One & Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas, and you’ll instantly get into the summer vibe. And if you’re a fan of those tropical cocktails that recall classic tiki bars, you’ll find a recipe on page 12—and tips for how to throw a tiki bash on palmbeachillustrated.com. If you’re wondering what to wear while you’re lounging or traveling, check out “Ship Shape,” our fashion editorial showcasing the stripe trend for summer. To make the story extra special, we shot it against a venerable backdrop: the Honey Fitz presidential yacht. The vessel has hosted several presidents since the 1930s and often is docked in Palm Beach, giving us a glimpse at this unique slice of American history. Turn to page 64 for photographer Richard Reinsdorf’s creative depiction of life onboard. Whether you’re dreaming of languid summer days or longing for the charge of season, our June issue will not disappoint. Enjoy!

Celebrate summer the way it’s meant to be—with a tiki-inspired beverage in hand. All the rage during the mid-twentieth century, the usually rum-heavy tropical cocktails have made a comeback. One of our personal favorites, Planter’s Punch is an absolute classic that captures all that is great about tiki culture. Ingredients (makes 1) 1 1/2 oz. dark rum 1 oz. freshly squeezed orange juice 1 oz. fresh pineapple juice 2/3 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice 1/3 oz. grenadine 1/3 oz. sugar syrup 3 to 4 dashes Angostura bitters Cherries and sliced pineapple for garnish

You started playing the accordion as a child. Why did the instrument appeal to you? I don’t think I was begging my parents for accordion lessons, but I shared the same surname with Frankie Yankovic, who was well known at the time as America’s Polka King. Because my name already had an association with the accordion, I think my parents thought there should be at least one other accordion-playing Yankovic in the world. So they started getting me lessons. I think my first lesson was the day before my seventh birthday. I took lessons for three years, [and] that is my formal musical training. How did “weird” become part of your name? That was in college. My sophomore year, I took a shift at the college campus radio station, and most of the DJs had some sort of wacky air name—like there was the Sheriff and the Captain and Macho Mike. I played sort of weird music during my shifts, and I thought, “Okay, Weird Al— that works.” And it just kind of stuck. What are some tips for writing parody songs? It’s got to be funny for the whole song. I try not to go with an idea that basically is over after you hear the first joke. There’s got to be enough potential there where you can still be saying funny things in the second verse and the bridge and the third verse. It can’t peter out after the first chorus. Picking your target is also important, because you want to find a song that’s mainstream enough that people are familiar with it. Here’s another thing: Even if people aren’t familiar with it, it should be funny. It shouldn’t be dependent on whether you’re familiar with the source material. Those are two big things.
The curly-haired prince of parody, “Weird Al” Yankovic has forged a decades-long music career by turning popular earworms into comedic gold. Armed with an accordion and a wicked imagination, Yankovic pokes fun at hit songs—but he always asks for the artist’s permission. “Most artists look at it as a badge of honor or a rite of passage to get their Weird Al song parody,” he says. His fourteenth and latest studio album, Mandatory Fun, has been his most successful to date. With hits like “Tacky,” a riff on Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” and “Word Crimes,” a grammar-based take on Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” Yankovic continues to challenge the parameters of parody. He arrives at the Kravis Center on June 4 for a high-energy evening of polka pastiches, costume changes, and multiple iterations of the one-and-only Weird Al. Tickets start at $22. (561-832-7469, kravis.org)

The team behind the PBI Award-winning Brewhouse Gallery has established the next great hangout—and it’s right next door. The Kelsey Theater opened in Lake Park earlier this year following renovations partially paid for by online crowdfunding. Located in the former home of the Mos’Art Theatre, the venue hosts musicians, comedy shows, and indie films, just to name a few, and will be rocking all summer long. “The beauty of our theater is versatility,” says founder A.J. Brockman, who sees The Kelsey as the next step toward building a thriving arts district in Lake Park. (561-328-7481, thekelseytheater.com)

Then, on June 15, return for some food on the go as part of the area’s Food Truck Roll-In. Top off the month with Art Night Out on June 24. From 6-9 p.m., craft vendors, live music, and street-side artists takeover Northwood Road for a no-holds-barred expression of creativity. (northwoodvillage.com)

There’s no shortage of miniature golf courses in the area, but one conceived by golf royalty is hard to come by. This summer, the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium will open its Conservation Course, an 18-hole mini-golf course designed by Jim Fazio and Gary Nicklaus. The sons of two local golfing icons, Fazio and Nicklaus created the course for serious golfers and children alike. Each hole caters to the theme of conservation and is inspired by an animal or plant found in the Everglades, resulting in the perfect combination of education and fun.

There’s an art to giving, and Jean Shafiroff is a philanthropic artist. A fixture on both the New York and Palm Beach philanthropy scenes, she shares her insight into charity in her new book, Successful Philanthropy: How to Make a Life by What You Give (Hatherleigh Press, $15). Shafiroff has forged her own philanthropic path through her work with organizations like the New York Women’s Foundation, the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, and the American Cancer Society, and she believes personal passions should shape one’s approach to giving. Featuring an introduction by Georgina Bloomberg, Successful Philanthropy looks at how modern giving means a donation of not just money but also of time and knowledge. Shafiroff outlines small and big ways to become an effective philanthropist, from signing up as a volunteer to tips for starting a charitable organization. (jeanshafiroff.com)
Speech pathologist and pastry chef Valerie Herskowitz has found a way to make chocolate even sweeter. In May, she opened The Chocolate Spectrum Boutique and Academy in Jupiter with the goal of selling delectable confections while simultaneously helping those with autism and other disabilities. An autism advocate and speech specialist for more than 30 years, Herskowitz began training in pastries in 2010 and became a certified chocolatier in 2013. As she cultivated these tasty hobbies, she found her son Blake, who has autism, wanted to bake and create as well. In an effort to help Blake and others like him, Herskowitz held chocolate-making classes in her home and sold the goods online. Now, she’s expanded to a storefront and is offering even more opportunities to those with special needs. Patrons at The Chocolate Spectrum can pick up artisan chocolates or enjoy pastries, beverages, and coffees in the café, named Clayton's Café in honor of a South Florida young man with special needs who died of epilepsy at 18 years old. In addition to weekly chocolate-making classes, Herskowitz has also started a yearlong vocational program to teach students with disabilities about chocolate production, baking, beverage preparation, and other restaurant services. Herskowitz hopes this will help those with autism and other special needs find employment at The Chocolate Spectrum and elsewhere. (954980-0134, thechocolatespectrum.com)
committed to lending her voice to the voiceless. She advocates for children in Florida’s privatized child welfare system as a board member for Adopt-A-Family of the Palm Beaches and, for the last six years, as a Guardian ad Litem, a statetrained volunteer assigned to help children navigate the court system. “They have nobody to talk to,” Frankel says. “They have case managers who are assigned to them, but their case managers have a lot of other cases. It makes the Guardian ad Litem program special, because you don’t have that kind of caseload. You just have as many cases as you’d like to take, so you can spend a lot more time getting to know the child.” Troubled by the shortcomings she saw in the foster care system, Frankel decided to make a documentary—her first ever. Mari Frankel “My job as a Guardian ad Litem is to speak for the child,” she says. “This is really the ultimate way to speak for these kids and to let them speak for themselves.” Foster Shock, a full-length documentary produced and directed by Frankel, premiered at the Palm Beach International Film Festival in April. It spotlights the experiences of many young men and women who have recently aged out of Florida’s foster care system. Frankel also interviewed industry insiders and fellow advocates in order to not only address the system’s shortcomings but also provide insight into how to make it better. Frankel hopes Foster Shock will travel to other festivals and reach as many people as possible. She believes the film’s message could energize viewers to become personally involved in the welfare of Florida’s forgotten sons and daughters. (fostershock.com)
