This month’s cover takes a look back at a beloved Alamo Heights tradition. The pumpkin patch at Alamo Height United Methodist Church! Although we were sad to see this Fall favorite come to an end last month, we wanted to capture the spirit of the season on this November cover photographed by Al Rendon. With cooler temperatures in the air, it’s the perfect time of year to get out and explore ‘09! An afternoon walk at Brackenridge Park, lunch, and some retail therapy make for a perfect day. For those of us who prefer to stay in, grab a cup of coffee or hot tea, cozy up with your favorite blanket, and enjoy this edition of 78209 Magazine to take you on a journey through the neighborhood and get to know the people and places of Alamo Heights!

BEE NICE, NEW ICE CREAM PARLOR OPENS ON BROADWAY IN 78209

When Debra Hazle and her husband, Jeff, moved from Washington, D.C., to San Antonio, the great state of Texas was where she wanted to live. She told me, “We were happy to leave the hectic pace of the D.C. metro area.” Figuring out what to do once they relocated to the Alamo City took a little planning. Her father was a sixth-generation Texan who grew up in San Antonio. His family had settled in the area as pioneers in the early 1830s. “Some of my earliest memories are sitting on his back-patio, hand churning his banana nut ice cream.” Those memories stuck with her. Why not open an ice cream shop featuring all freshly made ice cream? And so, she did, at 8003 Broadway St., 78209. “We offer 20 flavors of ice cream and three dairy-free flavors at Bee Nice, all made on the premises using fresh fruit, real vanilla, pure cane sugar, and no high fructose corn syrup.” Bee Nice is open Wednesday through Saturday from noon to 8:00 p.m. And Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Hazles have four adult children and four grandchildren. She says they are all ice cream lovers. 8 78209magazine.com

TWO STORY OFFICE BUILDING PLANNED ON CIRCLE ST. Unless you drive on Circle St. behind the Uptown Shopping Center on Broadway – think Bird Bakery – one would never know a vacant lot sits behind the center. But it does. A developer is proposing to construct a 3,744 sq. ft. two-story office building on the site at 516 Circle St. The property had been listed for $340,000. There are no structures on the site at this time. The project will include 12 parking spaces. The building will be 26 feet tall. A zoning variance is required to complete the project. It will be considered by Alamo Heights City Council in November. My daughter Reagan and I checked out the location on a recent Sunday afternoon. She said, “Look, dad, a squirrel lives there. What will happen to him if they build on this land?” I suggested Mr. Squirrel will move to a nearby tree. 10 78209magazine.com

ZOO RELEASES HORNY TOADS INTO THE WILD One of the things I heard not long after moving to San Antonio in 1990 was how sad it is that the Horned Lizards – horny toads – are a vanishing species. People told me they used to see them everywhere. But no more. There’s some good news now for horny toad lovers. Recently, the Center for Conservation and Research (CCR) at San Antonio Zoo released 50 zoo-hatched Texas Horned Lizards (horny toads) into the wild. Lead veterinarian Dr. Rob Coke performed a health inspection before the young lizards were introduced to their new home. While all the horny toads released hatched this summer, a clutch of them was born on June 18, Texas Horned Lizard Day. The release into the wild is a tremendous step forward for San Antonio Zoo’s Texas Horned Lizard Reintroduction Project, which will bolster the survival of their species here in South Texas. 12 78209magazine.com

“This is our 3rd release, and we have seen evidence after each effort that lizards are alive and thriving on the landscape,” said Dr. Andy Gluesenkamp, Director of the Center for Conservation & Research at San Antonio Zoo. The Texas Horned Lizard Reintroduction Project at San Antonio Zoo is funded mainly by zoo ticket sales, donations, grants, and Texas Parks and Wildlife. In addition to the Texas Horned Lizard Reintroduction Project, Fort Worth Zoo and Dallas Zoo are working with Texas Parks and Wildlife Department on releases in Wildlife Management Areas. All institutions involved share information and support one another through the Texas Horned Lizard Conservation Coalition.

BUSINESS PROFILE -

A Gift to the Community By Meredith Kay | Photography by Al Rendon

We’ve all known people who are very difficult to surprise, and when the time comes to find the perfect gift for someone special, we can find ourselves at a loss for ideas. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a local go-to gift shop where you can be sure to find something unique that would delight the person who has everything and bring a smile to the face of even the pickiest gift recipients? For over five years now, Arthur Perez and Doris Pitts have searched the world to bring the most unique and memorable gift items to their San Antonio gift shop, Cadeaux (pronounced cad-owe). Cadeaux is the French word for gifts, and their modern and eclectic gift boutique, located in the Boardwalk on Broadway shopping center, offers an intriguing collection of gifts that you are unlikely to find anywhere else in San Antonio. Arthur and Doris moved Cadeaux earlier this year from their downtown location in the Travis Building to their current Alamo Heights location in order to expand. The move has allowed them to double their space and showcase their unique gift items in a bright and welcoming atmosphere. Arthur selects funky and relaxing albums that spin on the shop’s inhouse turntable, and Doris is happy to help shoppers find the perfect item for that someone special. The boutique features unique jewelry pieces made by local and international artisans like Bibiana Dykema for Modern Moghul. Bibiana is an architect by trade from Corpus Christi who became inspired by the artisans of India and decided to launch her own jewelry line. Cadeaux offers something unique for everyone, and Arthur and Doris are experts at helping their customers choose the perfect gift. In fact, the store keeps a running “wish list” for their clients so that when the holidays or a special occasion comes around, you’ll be the hero when your special someone unwraps exactly what her heart desires. Arthur states, “I have a strong retail background, so I am very customer focused, and I love to engage people on a personal level. I try to talk with each and every customer that walks

through the door to learn more about what they are looking for and to ask deeper questions about the gift recipient.” Cadeaux is a very open and inviting space, and everyone is welcome at the boutique, from students to your four-legged friends. You will find beautifully hand-crafted stationery and journals from around the world, along with fragrances, handblown glassware, Japanese incense, unique candles, and Italian leather accessories from another South Texas native artisan, Allison Hoeltzel Savini, and her designer brand, Officina del Poggio.

One of the most popular and unique gift items that the boutique carries is the line of Master Shin Anvil hand-forged culinary knives. The knives are made by a metal and leather artisan in South Korea, and they sell out as quickly as they arrive. They are beautiful and durable and even come wrapped in Korean newspaper and hand-tied with twine. When asked what makes Cadeaux unique, Doris says, “We are a lifestyle gift and jewelry boutique. We seek out the most unique items that we can find, things you will not find in a bigbox retail store. We offer price points that will accommodate anybody’s budget, so whether you are just looking for an affordable piece of jewelry for the special lady in your life or you are really looking to stand out on a special occasion and are willing to splurge, we can help you find the perfect gift every time.”

Living the Sweet Life in 78209 By Meredith Kay Photography by Al Rendon

We all have friends or family members that have decided to branch out, spread their wings, and move out of San Antonio only to return, sometimes many years later, to the place that we all call “home.” However, for one prodigal daughter, Laura Celis, and her husband, David Tankin, Alamo Heights is where they now call “home” after living halfway around the world, and they wouldn’t have it any other way. David Tankin grew up in Evanston, Illinois, where his father was a professor at Northwestern University. David received his undergraduate degree and his MBA from Northwestern but then moved to Princeton, New Jersey, to pursue his career in finance. He met his wife, Laura, at a party following a football game while she was studying at Northwestern and while he was home for the game. Laura earned her master’s degree in Chemistry, and the two dated long-distance until she ultimately followed him to Princeton, and they were married. Laura was born and raised in San Antonio and graduated from MacArthur High School. The couple moved from New Jersey to Saudi Arabia in 2009 when David took a job for Saudi Aramco, a petroleum and natural gas company. Their son, Harry, was a toddler at the time, and the couple lived in a very diverse community of American expats and international professionals also working in Saudi Arabia. David and Laura spent six years there, traveling back and forth to San Antonio to adhere to Saudi Arabia’s strict visa provisions, before deciding to move back to the states full-time. Laura says, “We loved our time in Saudi, but we wanted to move back home so our son could attend middle and high school in America. It was harder to get used to living in New Jersey than it was to acclimate to Saudi Arabia, but eventually,

I wanted to be back in San Antonio, where my family lived.” Harry is now 15 and attends Alamo Heights High School, where he is on the J.V. tennis team. Laura also has an older son, William (35), who is married to Meredith, and the couple just had their first baby, Luke James. Laura is very excited to be a grandmother. Today, David works as the Statewide Head of Fixed Income Investments with Frost Bank, and he is active with the San Antonio Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society, which promotes ethics and professional excellence in the investment industry. Laura, however, chose a different career path, or perhaps it chose her. She began baking as a young girl and rediscovered her love for baking again while living in Saudi Arabia. She would bake cookies for her international friends, and they were quite sought after. When the family moved to San Antonio, the Arcadia Cookie Company was born. The name comes from Arcadia Place, which is the street that they now live on in Alamo Heights. Laura’s cookie enterprise continues to grow, and she is an incredibly creative and talented artist, creating custom handpainted cookie designs for literally any occasion. Her background in chemistry has allowed her to perfect her recipes, and she is always busy creating unique cookie designs for celebrations, holidays, corporate events, and school functions. The family has two dogs, Max and Abby, and they love the small-town feel of the Alamo Heights community. When asked what she loves most about the neighborhood, Laura states, “I love how contained the community is. After living out there in such a huge world, and after all of the traveling we’ve done, I love that our world can be within just five square miles.” NOVEMBER 2022

HOMETOWN HERO

Dreams Really Can Come True By Ron Aaron Eisenberg

Growing up in Arkansas, Jon Allman was fascinated by the fighter jets taking off and landing at Little Rock Air Force Base near his grandfather’s farm. He explains, “As a kid, I saw the airplanes flying overhead, and I caught the bug to fly. I went to air shows whenever I could.” So, it should be no surprise he dreamed of flying jets. And he worked to make that dream come true. Arguably, military service was in his blood. His dad was a marine, and his grandfather served in the military too. Allman was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, in 1964. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Arkansas in 1987, where he completed the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps program. He later earned a Master’s Degree in Administration from Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. His Air Force assignments took him all over the world. He flew combat missions while leading the only dedicated aeromedical evacuation squadron in Europe as Director of Operations. In October 2000, he piloted the MacKay Trophy award-winning mission to Aden, Yemen, rescuing critically wounded survivors from the terrorist attack on the USS Cole. His was one of two planes that helped evacuate the wounded Americans from Yemen. His last assignment was at Randolph Airforce Base in San Antonio. He told me, “Our kids were in middle school. My wife Tara and I didn’t want to relocate again. We wanted to settle 20 78209magazine.com

down.” He completed his twenty-year career in the Air Force and retired as a Lt. Col in 2008. But he was far from through giving back to society. Allman told 78209 Magazine, “It was an honor to serve our county in the military. It also was one of the greatest adventures of my life. I would do it all over again – in a heartbeat.” Allman is now the President and CEO of Endeavors, a national service organization of nearly 2,000 employees based in San Antonio, Texas. The non-profit, formerly known as Family Endeavors, provides programs and services towards community, disaster relief, employment, housing, mental health, and veteran family services in the United States and Puerto Rico. He was especially proud to tell me Endeavors is the largest provider of homeless veteran services and mental health services for veterans in Texas. Allman is troubled by a recent report on U.S. military deaths. It found an estimated 7,057 service members have died during military operations since 9/11, while suicides among active duty personnel and veterans of those conflicts have reached 30,177 — that’s more than four times as many. He told me, “It is incumbent on people like me to help veterans and their family members. We have a hotline at Endeavors – (210) 431-6466 -- for Veterans and family members in crisis. Endeavors also endorses the new national 9-8-8 suicide prevention hotline. The Allmans live in 78209. They have two adult children, one of whom lives in Ft. Worth and the other in San Antonio.

THE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS OF ‘09

EXCEL AWARD WINNER

ALL-STAR STUDENT CLAIRE WALTON Claire Walton shines on the volleyball court, on the track, in the classroom, and the community, and that’s why she was honored as the KENS 5/UPS Store All-Star Athlete for Alamo Heights ISD.

Cambridge Elementary School physical education teacher Elisabeth Murguia is the 2022-23 EXCEL Award winner for Alamo Heights ISD. Murguia was in the gym with second graders when she was presented with the apple trophy and a $1,000 check earlier this fall. She has been an educator for 17 years, 13 of those years as a physical education teacher. “I love teaching and love working with children,” Murguia said. “Being a PE teacher has been so much fun for me. I was not into sports as a child, and in fact, I have a great story that I tell my students about my basketball career that ended in 3rd grade. I share this story because many students are like me and don’t necessarily like the competitiveness of sports. You don’t have to be athletic and a sports star to be fit and healthy. I love teaching students how to take care of themselves and love setting a good example for them.” In addition to seeing students weekly for hour-long classes focusing on health and wellness, Murguia leads after-school activities like the Outdoor Kids Club, Mule Milers running club, and archery club. She also teaches fitness classes at Gold’s Gym in the evenings and some Friday afternoon classes for her colleagues. The EXCEL Award is sponsored by KENS 5 and Credit Human, and representatives from both organizations came to celebrate Coach Murguia along with Cambridge Principal Jana Hawkins and AHISD Superintendent Dr. Dana Bashara. 22 78209magazine.com

Walton was presented the honor during a live broadcast on the Great Day SA morning show. She was surrounded by her volleyball and track teammates, AHHS cheerleaders, and the Mighty Mule Band in the Muledome. She was nominated for the honor by Principal Cory Smith and head volleyball coach Alex Bothe.

MACARTHUR GETS CREATIVE WITH HIGH-TECH HEALING When you peek into the athletic training facility at MacArthur High School, you will see exam tables, athletic tape, and whirlpools. You will see students running on treadmills, throwing balls against trampolines, and stretching. You will also see students tapping brightly colored, quickly-changing lights on discs, and rehabbing in virtual reality.

MacArthur Assistant Athletic Trainer Amanda Boyd. “They look forward to coming in and hitting a high score or beating their teammate’s high score. It’s innovative, and it’s fun for us too. Plus, the kids see this technology we get for them, and they feel appreciated and know we care about them and their healing.”

“Kids can get bored if we just hand them a worksheet and tell them to do a group of exercises,” said MacArthur Head Athletic Trainer Chad Sutherland. “The same is true in the classroom. But Math and English teachers get to create creative lesson plans. We are trying to do the same thing with this technology.”

One more thing you will notice in the athletic training facility: lots of student trainers. This year, nearly 20 students are taking advantage of the hands-on training available to them. They get the opportunity to get CPR certified and learn basic first aid, a small step toward a potentially big dream of working in a health career.

Pulling a player off the field or court for an injury is never fun. Putting in the work to properly heal from that injury isn’t always fun either, but with the new high-tech tools at their disposal, students can actually look forward to healing. And it almost happens by accident. “I think they are more motivated to come in and try something if we can make the workouts fun for them,” said

SAINT MARY’S HALL CELEBRATES NATIONAL MERIT SEMIFINALISTS AND COMMENDED SCHOLARS Saint Mary’s Hall is delighted to celebrate 16 National Merit Semifinalists and Commended Scholars recognized by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation for their outstanding performance on the PSAT taken during their junior year at Saint Mary’s Hall.

Provide shelter by building something out of wood, like a doghouse, or buy a ready-made or easy-to-assemble cat shelter. A little house will help your feral cats find a warm place to snuggle down. The best material to lay on the floor of the shelter box is straw. Straw repels moisture and is a good insulator; cats can burrow into it to stay warm.

2. Provide lots of food: these cats expend extra energy to stay warm, so give them more food than you would in warmer weather. a. Consider investing in heated bowls. b. Offer dry kibble and lots of it! 3. Provide water: Both food and water should be in a location that will accommodate both you and the cat. As mentioned above, heated bowls can keep the water from freezing. These heated bowls plug into an electrical outlet, so consider how you will set this up outdoors to accommodate the plug and cord safely. Though the Animal Defense League will always advocate for indoor pets, feral cats roam our neighborhoods and deserve care, too. Our goal is to help you keep them safe, healthy, and vaccinated, prevent the spread of disease, and keep them from having new litters.

I AM A LEADER

-

Leadership is Transcending yourself “Growth is transcending yourself, your habitual self, which is none other than ego.” - Lester Levenson By Angel Santiago

Louis Carter, the founder and CEO of Best Practice Institute and an organizational psychologist and top advisor to C-level executives of Fortune 1000 companies, says the ego is the enemy of good leadership because it distorts your sense of reality. He further states that “leaders with inflated egos struggle to take on constructive feedback. They might also overestimate their abilities while underestimating the skills, efforts, and people required to achieve a goal.” A big ego can lead to a strong confirmation bias – favoring information that confirms our views. The leader’s perspective can become too limited, creating tunnel vision that prevents the leader from seeing how people are actually performing and how their actions might impact others. According to vocabulary.com, your ego is your conscious mind, the part of your identity that you consider “yourself.” To say someone has a “big ego” is to say they are full of themselves, which is rarely a quality you want to see in a leader. To become the best version of yourself, you must go through a process of transformation, a self-cleansing, so to speak, also known as transcending the ego. This is key to releasing and letting go of limiting aspects of yourself that, for a long time, have created so much conflict and suffering in your life. When this happens, you’ll start living more from your heart and less from your head. Heather O’Neill, owner of CryoFit Alamo Heights, is no stranger to this process. She understands that life can be hard for everybody at some point or another, and this process has made it very clear to her how important it is to take time for yourself every day to focus on what you need on a personal

level. Because if you don’t, you cannot be there for others. “My understanding of self-leadership is letting go of pride and ego. And to be able to really take an honest, deep dive look at yourself and not be ashamed of what you see, but learn from what you see so you can apply that to what you would consider your new self. Being true to yourself and presenting that true self to others.” To truly understand and accept yourself, you must let go of any limiting beliefs that have led to your false sense of identity or ego. This process is essential for growth. This transformation process allows you to see yourself more clearly to better understand and accept yourself, with all your strengths and weaknesses, so that you can do something about it. So you can grow. Choosing to grow and improve ourselves is a process we can do on our own through our desire to achieve great things, or we can wait for life to grow us through challenge and difficulty; more often than not, it’s the latter. I invite you to self-reflect and recognize when your ego is getting in the way of your ability to lead effectively. A great leader is the first to accept their flaws and find a way to turn them into strengths. Great leaders first remove their masks and let their guard down to encourage others to do the same. And those are signs of a healthy ego.

Blessings,

Sinus Infection: When to Seek Treatment By Cliff Stamp, Medical Writer

If you’ve ever suffered from the aching, throbbing pain of a sinus infection, you know how intensely miserable they are, but does a sinus infection call for a trip to urgent care? Sinus infections are common and are more frequent during the fall months. We get sinus infections—also called sinusitis—because the tissues inside these hollow spaces in the skull become inflamed, which triggers the production of thick mucous. This mucous blocks the sinuses, giving bacteria the perfect place to start an infection. Sinus infections are often associated with allergies, which cause swollen nasal passages and heavy mucus production, but bad colds and other respiratory viral diseases are also prone to causing swelling and blockages in the sinuses. 32 78209magazine.com

Although the viruses that cause colds and flu do not often cause sinus infections directly, they do lead to swollen nasal passages that don’t drain adequately. When sinuses are blocked, bacteria breed rapidly in the warm, moist sinus passages, and often, just as a person’s getting over a bad cold, a sinus infection will emerge. Sinus infections and bad colds share several symptoms, including: • Coughs • Sore throat • Runny or stuffy nose • Headaches • Fatigue • Swollen sinuses • Excess mucous in the nose and throat • Fever (low grade in adults, but may be higher in children)


However, there are some hallmark symptoms of sinus infections that can typically help you tell one infection from the other. Sinus infections usually produce a throbbing, aching pain in the face and sometimes behind the eye, whereas bad colds tend not to cause facial pain. Sinus infections also produce dark yellow to greenish mucous that drips down the throat, whereas mucous expelled during a bad cold is usually lighter in color. Sinus infections can be acute, coming on rapidly and then resolving within a week. They may also become chronic, lasting for 10 days or more. When a person’s symptoms do stick around for longer than 10 days, or if someone who was recovering from a sinus infection experiences a return of symptoms, it’s best to go to an urgent care clinic. Sinus infections can resolve on their own without someone seeking medical care, but when they linger, there’s a good chance a bacterial infection is present. Even though bacterial infections can get better on their own, after a week to 10 days, there’s a possibility that antibiotics are going to be required. Another indication to head for your local urgent care clinic is a rising fever. Once an adult or child’s temperature exceeds 100 degrees, it’s a good idea to visit Urgent Care 24/7. Fortunately, sinus infections respond well to antibiotics. It’s important to take all of the antibiotics prescribed to you or your child in a course of treatment. If the infection isn’t thoroughly resolved, any remaining bacteria will likely start the infection cycle all over again.

WHAT IS REFRACTIVE SURGERY? Refractive lens surgery, also known as laser or surgical vision correction (depending on the procedure), is a category of treatments that are specifically designed to improve your eyesight and reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts. For most patients, refractive surgery is not needed, but an increasing number of individuals are opting to achieve their best possible vision with one of these treatments. There are several different types of refractive surgeries, all of which are known to be effective with very high rates of success. Our team of board-certified optometrists at Focal Point Vision in San Antonio is pleased to provide these advanced services to improve your visual acuity. Am I a candidate for refractive surgery? More and more people are taking advantage of the dramatic improvements in vision that refractive surgery offers. Able to improve the vision of a wide variety of patients, the ideal candidates for refractive surgery are people who: · Have myopia (nearsightedness) or hyperopia (farsightedness) · Are experiencing age-related vision loss (presbyopia) · Are in generally good health · Are over the age of 18 · Have a stable vision prescription

· Don’t have dry eye · Have no eye injuries or infections in the past year Is refractive surgery the same thing as LASIK? Refractive surgery is the actual name of the class of surgery. LASIK, PRK, refractive lens exchange, and implantable contact lens (ICL) are types of refractive surgery to address astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. LASIK and PRK use a laser to precisely reshape your cornea, whereas the latter two procedures use implants to correct your vision. A member of our team of experienced doctors can tell you more about refractive surgery and determine which procedure is right for you during your free consultation. Is refractive surgery painful? Having your cornea reshaped with a laser or implanting a lens into your eye may sound painful, but in reality, it isn’t. aA Focal Point Vision, the doctor conducting your surgery will put anesthetic numbing drops in your eyes to reduce any discomfort you may feel. Most patients only feel slight pressure during their procedure. For more information about refractive surgery, contact Focal Point Vision at (210) 982-3501

Julian’s Pizzeria An Italian Slice of Heaven in ‘09 By Meredith Kay | Photography by Al Rendon 46 78209magazine.com

EAT IN ‘09

-

I’ll bet that if you ask anyone what type of local business they would love to have in their neighborhood, a great pizzeria and family café would be at the top of the list. Luckily, the residents of 78209 don’t have to travel far to find great pizza and Italian food with Julian’s Pizzeria right around the corner in the Sunset Ridge Shopping Center. Julian Solis, and his wife, Kara, along with their children, Hannah (23) and Cole (27), have created a true family business with Julian’s Pizzeria. Everyone in the family works hard to bring the most delicious Italian food to their Alamo Heights neighbors, and Julian’s uses only the freshest and finest ingredients, even sourcing their tomatoes from a carefully selected farm in Central California. Julian’s Pizzeria opened in Alamo Heights in 2015, and they also have two other locations. The original Julian’s is located off West Avenue near Bitters in the Embassy Oaks Shopping Center, and their newest location is located off Bulverde Road just inside Loop 1604. The pizzeria features a large menu that includes not only traditional and specialty pizzas, but also hearty salads, classic pasta dishes, chicken specialties, and classic Italian sub sandwiches. Julian’s also offers lunch specials, but you’ll want to get there early as the restaurant fills up quickly. Julian loves the welcoming vibe of the Alamo Heights neighborhood and says, “We were so blessed to be a part of the ‘09 community during the pandemic. The local residents supported us throughout that hard time with takeout orders that helped us survive. We didn’t have to lay off any of our employees during the pandemic. We are very grateful for the community’s support, and we are always looking for new ways to give back to the community that supports us.” Julian and Kara’s culinary roots go back to the Boccone’s days. Kara’s family ran the popular restaurant back in 1994 while Julian and Kara were dating. Julian would often help out at the restaurant, and he fell in love with the business. Once they were married and Boccone’s closed down, Julian and Kara decided to branch out on their own and opened the first Julian’s Pizzeria in 2005. The family has plans to expand their concept in the future, and now that Hannah and Cole are active in the business, it gives Julian more time to do what he loves best, which is to interact with his customers and help out in the kitchen. You can’t go wrong with the pizza at Julian’s, and their thick crust, square pan Sicilian style Pizza Padrone will feed your entire family and satisfy all of the food groups on one giant pizza. Pasta lovers will not be disappointed at Julian’s either. Their homemade lasagna, baked rigatoni, and fettuccine Alfredo dishes are outstanding and could rival that of any Italian grandmother. Julian’s Pizzeria is very family-friendly and features a great kid’s menu for the little eaters in the family. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, and you can take a look into the life of Julian and his family, as the walls are adorned with happy family photos and memories. The restaurant offers a great selection of local beers along with an impressive selection of wines. It’s a great place to catch a game after work, and it is the perfect go-to restaurant when nobody can decide on a place for dinner because Julian’s has something for everyone.
