LETTER FROM THE EDITOR I opened the front door and stepped outside – the chill of cool rain lingering in the air mixed with the aroma of dew-drenched cedar trees… the first hint of FALL. Who doesn’t love the entrance of autumn! Mother nature adorns herself in hues of auburn, forest green, and pumpkin spice and glides onto the world’s stage scented with nutmeg and cinnamon. And with her comes Halloween, pumpkin patches, hayrides, football, and October fest! In this issue we bring you brilliant bits of October, focusing on food and beverage. We have a number of fabulous restaurants in Oklahoma City, and the food review section provides you with a glimpse of local, tasty treats. And for the meals you would prefer to make yourself in the comfort of your own home, we provide you with information concerning healthy food ideas, including some great recipes. We also include articles about hotspots for a funfilled Halloween, trends in 2012 fall fashion, and décor ideas regarding color and food.

So6ix wishes you a Happy Halloween and a fabulous fall! “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” -Albert Camus “Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” -George Elliot

“MUST-HAVE�

FALL FASHIONS BY

Heather Aki

The lights begin to dim. Ladies gather around and sit along the white-tiled stage and wait for the best time of the year to start. Everything goes pitch black and quiet. All at once, the lights beam onto the runway, the music starts, and fashion icons wait patiently. During fashion week, every viewer in their polarized aviator shades gazes at each model sashaying down the runway in the new fall fashion and trends.

STYLE

Fall is the “trend setter” season of the year. New and iconic designers are introduced with their new fashion lines. For fall 2012, you don’t want to miss out on these fabulous fall trends. Fashion trends recur every couple of decades, but with a twist of new detail or a combination of two trends. It may be worth cleaning out your grandmother’s closet this year to find these vintage fall pieces! Here are the top 5 “must have” trends for your closet.

Leather! The fresh smell of genuine leather always puts me at an ease. Leather is an iconic look this season around the globe. The leather jacket gives a finishing touch to all “out on the town” and evening attire. Not only are we seeing lots of leather jackets, but we are also seeing trimmed and detailed leather garments. For instance, leather piping on suiting jackets, trims of skirts, and collars of the shirt gives a woman that savvy and chic look to her outfit.

The Perfect Peplum. This look has been a tremendous hit around the fashion world for many years. The Met Gala awards in May had many actresses and designers in divine dresses with all types of peplums. Some may think that the peplum sticks out too much from a form fitting look. In reality, this look is a great match for every body type. For the petite lady who wants to look trendy, she can still put on a sleeveless jeweled collar peplum top to define her short waist. For the straight figured ladies, the peplum still defines the waist but also gives the illusion of being taller. Peplums are not just for tops; they can also be on a skirt or a dress, which provides a fun and flirty look. From a detailed peplum long gown to summer tops and now on jackets, you are sure to see this classic look recycling!

Color block. This trend was recreated in this past spring collection with bold and bright colored pants and tops. As you transition into the colder weather and start to layer up your wardrobe, you will still see the color block idea. Instead of cropped red pants and a chambray buttonup, pair your favorite colored stretched skirt with some bright colored Hue Tights. These are a must have in your wardrobe to show off the legs but keep warm for the fall weather! SO6IX.COM

STYLE

The Chunky Heels. Hopefully your grandmother or mother wears the same size shoe as you! Go ahead and rummage through their vintage fashion collection and see if you can find that loafer or Mary Jane. These are classic shoes that will never go out of style. The chunky, threeinch heel with the classic loafer tongue redefines this look for the new season!

Lace and Floral. Start showing your feminine side! This season, it’s all about those floral pants and the vintage lace blouse. The fall Louis Vuitton collection statement shows this retro look with the dark-colored floral print detail. Some other fun and popular prints you should try are wearing tweed skirts with your long cardigan sweater. This is a fabulous fall look that others will want to start following as well. These are just a few of the “must have” pieces to have in your wardrobe this fall. It is the best time of the year to venture into new trends and broaden your comfort zone with clothing. Just pair one of your favorite classic, fall skirts or sweater dresses, and pair it with a chunky heel and leather coat! 14

Finally, it is Fall! It is the time of year you want to turn on your Crockpot and make some tasty, warm comfort food. The only problem is typically “comfort food” comes with side dishes that boast a high calorie count and can do a lot of damage to your waistline. Luckily, for us, fall is a great time of year for seasonal fruits and vegetables. 16

Zone, Paleo, Weight Watchers, and Atkins are just a few more popular terms for styles of eating. While we use the word “diet” a lot in the gym, we are not referring to a change in eating habits for the short term. “Diet” refers to a way of life. My “diet” is a way of eating that I try to stick to at least 80% of the time. We want to focus on high quality food with high quality ingredients. There is almost no better time to find high quality food than right now.

delightful accompaniment to that roast that has been in cooking in your Crockpot all day.

Mashed Cauliflower

The word carbohydrate has developed a bad rap. Lots of people claim to be on a low-carb or no-carb diet. The truth is: fruits and vegetables are carbs. They are good for you and should be a staple on your table. We all need fruits and vegetables in our diets. They provide powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and energy. It is best to get these things from a real food source rather than a pill or powder.

With that said, don’t be afraid to fill at least half your plate with some seasonal carbohydrates in the form of vegetables! Cauliflower may not sound that exciting, but with a few modifications, it can be a

Ingredients: 1 head fresh cauliflower 1 cup chicken stock ¼ tsp fresh cracked pepper 2 cloves garlic, crushed Directions: Cut cauliflower head into small chunks. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan or Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium heat, and cover, allowing cooking for 20 minutes or so until the cauliflower is very tender and easily mashed with a fork. Carefully pour cauliflower and all ingredients into the bowl of a food processor, or keep in pan and use in an immersion blender or hand mixer to mash. If the mashed cauliflower seems too dry, add in some additional chicken stock. (The recipe is from Paleo Comfort Foods: Homestyle Cooking for a Gluten-Free Kitchen by Julie and Charles Mayfield) No fall meal is complete without dessert. Yes, I said dessert. Being smart about what goes on your plate doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the fruits of fall... literally! Warm desserts are a staple in many households this time of year, such as pies, SO6IX.COM

brownies, cakes, and cobblers. Anyone can still enjoy that same sweet satisfaction, but in a more thoughtful way. Apples are a perfect fall food. They are in season and taste delicious in multiple types of dishes. Baked apples are a dish that I grew up with, and to this day they leave my sweet-tooth satisfied.

Baked WalnutCinnamon Apples Ingredients: 4 apples 1 c raisins 1/4 c walnuts 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp natural vanilla extract 1/2 c water Directions:

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Remove core and pierce apples with a fork in several places around the center, to prevent them from bursting. Mix raisins, nuts, cinnamon, and vanilla in a small bowl. Fill center of each apple with mixture. Place in a glass baking dish and pour water into pan. Cover with foil and bake for about thirty minutes or until tender. Serves four. The moral of the story is that you can still enjoy fun foods with a few easy tweaks and modifications. The local farmers market in your town is a perfect place to stock up on seasonal goodies. Be adventurous and try new things. If a plentiful amount of vegetables and seasonal fruits are a part of your diet, then you are well on your way to falling in love with healthy eating. 18

Major Dan Rooney, an F-16 fighter pilot in the Oklahoma National Guard was returning home from a second tour-of-duty in Iraq. When his plane landed, the captain of the aircraft announced that on board were the remains of a Corporal Bucklin. Out of respect for his heroic service to our country, the captain asked the other passengers to remain on board and in their seats while the casket was deplaned. The casket was taken off the aircraft and covered in a flag. 24

SOCIETY

Corporal Bucklin’s twin brother walked to meet the rest of his family. Major Rooney looked back to the cabin and noticed the other passengers were up, disregarding the captain’s request. Rooney could not put Corporal Bucklin’s young son Jacob from his mind. Thinking of his own wife and children, he made a commitment right then to devote himself to bettering the lives of spouses and children of veterans who never make it back or come home gravely wounded. In 2007, Major Rooney founded the Folds of Honor Foundation, a nonprofit 501C-3 charitable organization dedicated to helping the loved ones left behind by war. The dependents of our service men and women are often invisible victims. Family members pay a high price mentally and emotionally, but these wounds aren’t as easy to see as physical pains. A million spouses and children of the deployed have had their lives forever altered by the death or severe injury of a soldier. Ninety percent of the children of soldiers do not qualify for federal scholarships. The Folds of Honor Children’s Scholarship Fund strives to make certain that no military family is left behind without the necessary resources to begin to heal and move on to a better life. Scholarships are available for K through 12 aged children of service members killed or who have come home 90-100% disabled from the combat zones of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation New Dawn. The CSF scholarships help cover tuition, tutoring, uniforms, textbooks, afterschool programs, and approved summer camps. There is also an immediate use scholarship for children and spouses pursuing higher learning at a two or four year institution. These gifts are yearly, and

must be reapplied for annually. Over 4,200 PGA facilities volunteered for the Fifth Annual Patriot Golf Day last year, and this Labor Day turnout was even greater. In 2007, Major Rooney asked golfers to aid FHF by adding one dollar to their greens fees. His request resulted in over one million dollars in donations. In the past five years, golfers have raised 12.8 million dollars on behalf of veterans’ families. Patriot Golf Day receives support from the PGA and the United States Golf Association. The Rose Creek event in Edmond was a roaring success. On October 5th, Gallardia opens to the public for the Fairways for Freedom Gala. Renowned golfer David Feherty will be the speaker. At Rose Creek, there will be a Twin Peaks fundraiser on October 8th to benefit another service organization, Warriors for Freedom. The charity hopes to raise close to $150,000 with sponsorship from beer giant Budweiser. Partnering with the Folds of Honor Foundation and Warriors for Freedom, Budweiser continues its long commitment to the brave members of the armed forces to whom we all owe so much. This baseball season, Budweiser will unveil its “Walk-Off a Hero” campaign. Budweiser will give $5,000 to FHF for every walk-off win. This generous gift is a boon for FHF, allowing the charity to expand its services to more families in need. I had the honor of speaking with Major Ed Pulido today while he was on his way to Muskogee to speak with some POWs. Now the Senior Vice President of Public Relations and Military Affairs for FHF, Ed became involved with the service group in 2008. His two young daughters were SO6IX.COM

both awarded scholarships. Pulido has a book coming out this year titled Challenge, Triumph, and Change. “It’s the Mr. Ed story,” he told me humbly. A movie Major Pulido worked on is now showing in 1,400 different theaters nationwide. In the film, Last Ounce of Courage, a veteran rallies his small town to deep patriotism. Pulido founded the service organization Warriors for Freedom, whose mission is “to be America’s resource dedicated to supporting and improving mental, physical, and holistic services for our nation’s active military, veterans and their families.” Both the FHF and WFF fundraisers are underwritten with the generous help of corporate sponsors like Budweiser. “We couldn’t do it without Budweiser,” said Pulido, “they’ve given 2.5 million to the cause thus far and have provided over twenty $5,000 scholarships for our members to date.” Go to the websites below and learn more. Become an FHF Wingman for just twenty-five dollars, and your small gift will bring much needed aid and opportunity to our service men and their families. “We will not leave anyone behind in the field of battle, so help us God,” is Major Pulido’s motto, and he does live by it. The two organizations are always on the lookout for new corporate sponsors and individual donors. You’re welcome to call Major Pulido at 405-8339092. His voice mail encourages you to “have a great army day!’

We had the opportunity of trying their Cuban Puerco Criolla and Stuffed Shrimp Enchiladas. Of course both of these dishes warmed our spirits while soothing our appetites.

The sweetly seasoned black beans which rested atop a sea of brown rice rounded out the dish perfectly. A local favorite at 1492 is the Seafood Enchiladas, which are stuffed with scallops, shrimp, and lump crab, and a fresh lobster-basil cream sauce rounds out the full flavor of this dish.

BRICKTOWN BREWERY

Jazmo’z Bourbon Street Café is an excellent Cajun and Creole restaurant with the best contemporary N’awlins atmosphere found anywhere in Bricktown. Come in on one of the many live music nights, and experience it for yourself. Their delicious crab cake is a classic Maryland style crab cake with a heavenly Cajun twist.  It’s placed atop a flavorful bed of bourblanc, which is a white wine butter cream sauce, and it’s topped with savory crawfish.   A perfect complimentary entrée is the Seafood Sauté, a divine combination of Dutch potatoes, cheese, and chives baked with fresh shrimp, crab, and lobster meat. The dish is covered in Jazmo’z famous Boublanc sauce, Swiss and parmesan cheese, and baked again until golden brown.  It should be a sin to consume this amazing dish. Jazmo’z isn’t just an amazing restaurant to enjoy an authentic N’awlins dinner, but it is also a fantastic place to grab a bite to eat during your lunch break.   Make sure and get the Reuben sandwich.   It’s made with blackened corn beef, sauerkraut that is cooked in a smoky hazelnut thousand island dressing, topped with lots of cheese, and then sandwiched between two pieces of garlic-toasted marble rye bread.   This Reuben sandwich is by far the best you’ll have.

COLOR CONCEPTS FOR FINE

DINING BY

John David Stinson

“I could sit here for hours. What a nice atmosphere!” Have you ever been to a restaurant and had this thought? On the flip side, you might also have been to a restaurant and thought, “ I really need to get out of here!” Besides the obvious factors of cleanliness and food quality, design actually plays a major role in a customer’s dining experience, and restaurant owners spend a lot of time and money to get their desired effect. Warm color pallets (reds, golds, oranges) are said to increase hunger, and are often used in food chain logos and designs. Fast food chains use quite a bit of yellow in their designs. Research shows bright yellow not only makes customers hungry, but it also makes them want to hurry! Cool colors (blues, greens, purples) evoke knowledge, calmness, and tranquility. Because of the calming effect of some blues, a person’s heart rate and appetite can actually decrease. Use these color palates in rooms you need for relaxing or in the places of lingering conversation. 40

SO6IX.COM

| OCTOBER 2012


STYLE

To translate these concepts into your home, try using the warm colors in the areas you plan to use as hubs for entertaining, such as the kitchen. A warm color pallet is sure to evoke an energetic dinner party. You’ll be subliminally encouraging your guests to have fun, eat, and stick around. Use cooler colors in your bedrooms and bathrooms for a calming effect. Every designer knows the layout of a room is just as important as the items in it. For your kitchen, the most effective layout is a carefully calculated representation of the “triangle theory.” Position the fridge, sink and stove in as close to a perfect triangle as possible. This allows for efficient and easy cooking, and gives the kitchen the correct design flow. If you’re planning a special event or dinner party but have no time to repaint, fear not. Use your party’s color

theme to translate some of the same desired effects. The color scheme of your event can create an elegant party on even a limited budget. Choose one color you love in multiple shades or saturations. For example, if you have a red tablecloth, choose a deeper red for flowers in the centerpiece, or even a dark orange for the chargers around your plates. Next, choose one metallic (copper, bronze, gold, silver) and one dark color (black, brown, deep purple) for accents. Your combination of various hues, a metallic, and a deep color will create the texture and depth your guests are only used to seeing in magazines and upscale banquets. The right color choices can transform your home or event from a drab, boring state into an energetic place fit for hosting countless parties and special events.

KICK YOUR

BUTTS VAPOR HUT AT THE

BY

Beth Ann Mock

Christi Watson of the Vapor Hut in Moore suffered from asthma for years. Like many smokers, she just wasn’t having any luck quitting. She tried disposable electronic cigarettes like the kinds you can buy in gas stations or drugstores, but they were inconvenient and didn’t taste very good. They had trouble keeping a charge, too. 42

SELF-HELP

Now she uses a vapor device to reduce her nicotine cravings and breathes better than she has in years. The Vapor Hut sells electronic cigarettes, vaporizers, and liquid nicotine they mix themselves. This is extremely important, as some purveyors buy liquid nicotine from China that contains other unregulated additives. Nicotine is far from the only chemical in cigarettes that is addictive. Smokers become chemically dependent on these chemicals as well as the nicotine itself. There are about 4,000 other ingredients in manufactured tobacco including tar and carbon monoxide that can and do cause cancer. Unlike tobacco and other nicotine replacement products, the liquid nicotine mixed at the Vapor Hut is completely free of carcinogens. The mixture contains only nicotine, which is actually found naturally in cauliflower and other vegetables, food flavoring, and food-grade PG (Propylene Glycol) or VG (Vegetable Glycerine). These last two additives are perfectly natural and safe. They are used widely in many foods and toiletry items and are not carcinogenic. This is why it is imperative that if you use vaping to wean you off of cigarettes, you must buy from a reputable supplier like the Vapor Hut that mixes its own E liquid in house.

as you would a lit cigarette. This provides the same satisfaction smoking does without the obvious harm. The device will charge on any wall socket or USB port. Tips are filled with any of fifty flavors of nicotine you choose, easily filled, and attached to the atomizers. Cost is also a factor here. Say you smoke one pack of cigarettes a day. You will consume less nicotine with your vaporizer, and it will cost you only eight to ten dollars a week to maintain. The Vapor Hut’s original location is at 6107 SE 15th Street in Midwest City, 405-455-3545. You can meet the lovely Christi Watson at the new location: 1019 SW 19th Street in Moore, 405-759-3950.

Beth Ann Mock

Starter kits come in two sizes and run under one hundred dollars. You’ll know which size atomizer you need by the amount you smoke daily. Christi and her helpers will walk and talk you through a process to get you with the right vaporizer. You’ll be shown how to use the E Cigarette and allowed to try it. The folks at Vapor Hut are very knowledgeable. You’ll leave the store knowing you can still settle your cravings without actually lighting up. The E Liquid fuels the atomizer, which converts it into vapor you inhale just SO6IX.COM

LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22) You are between the devil and the deep blue sea now. Making a decision as to whether or not you should maintain a friendship will be hard. Trust your instincts. You’re more sexually active, but be careful of your health. You may be overdoing it.

SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 21) You have a preference for being alone at present, so don’t feel as if you have to make excuses for being a recluse. You’ll really enjoy your own company. Managing time will be the most important thing you can do at present as superfluous tasks erode your valuable moments.

CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19) You could be exhausted from waiting on someone’s decision. If you don’t hear back within a reasonable time frame, make other plans. Lose the guilt too. You are anxious over money, but realize that worrying about things of this nature doesn’t actually solve the problem.

Prioritise what needs doing.

SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21) Getting much needed advice will be useful in solving a problem at present. The words you hear won’t make sense at first, but on second thought, you’ll realize their value. Reward yourself if you have been overworking lately. 52

SO6IX.COM

| OCTOBER 2012

AUARIUS (JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18) Today you have a brilliant idea that you must act upon. You’ll be crowned with success. You still need to re-evaluate your financial position, but don’t procrastinate once you realize what really needs to be done. You might think that waiting is the solution. It isn’t.


S AT I R E

PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20) Direct your energies carefully at present, as you may be dispersed and end up not getting too much at all done. It’s not a bad idea to have a plan. Cut back on superfluous expenses. You may not realize it, but you have been living beyond your means. Nipping this in the bud early ensures additional funds at your disposal.

ARIES (MARCH 21 - APRIL 19) The success that you desire may be realized in a different way than you had initially imagined. Remain open to alternatives. U n e x p e c t e d romance awaits you now, but you may be mistrusting of the situation. You must not throw the baby out with the bathwater. Investigate what is offered.

TAURUS (APRIL 20 - MAY 20) Surprises are what we often yearn for; however, you may walk away from something that is freely given just now because you are afraid of the sense of obligation that may come with it. Others don’t satisfy you, so don’t feel obliged to be in another’s company if there is a sense of discomfort in doing so. Simply walk away from the situation.

GEMINI (MAY 21 - JUNE 20) Focusing on the home will give you a sense of well-being. Others may appreciate the time that

you give them just now especially if you’ve been avoiding them for a while. Travel is on your mind, but you must not rush into the situation. Study options before committing money to a holiday.

CANCER (JUNE 21 - JULY 22) Paperwork is tedious but most necessary. Break the task down into its constituent components to get through the job much quicker. Work could be disastrous, as you are overloaded by deadlines which are brought forward. You have no control over the situation, and this makes it worse.

LEO (JULY 23 - AUGUST 22) “Temperance” is your keyword as relationships overwhelm you. Don’t over-drink or eat too much. Rest well and increase your vitamin intake. Sleepless nights may be causing you worries. You also believe that you deserve more recognition for the work that you are performing.

VIRGO (AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22) You will take pleasure in helping others. Charitable work is likely to be on your agenda. Make sure the recipient is deserving. Some important news could give you great strength. You are encouraged by an e-mail or letter that arrives. SO6IX.COM
