DATING ROI

Technology has made dating more complicated and impersonal. Hiring a matchmaker might be the smartest investment you could make in your personal life. At first, Larry Chiarelli, director at a tech start up, thought he was doing all he needed. Sign up on multiple dating websites. Meet lots of women. Eventually, the right one would come along – except she never did. So he decided to bring in the professionals and hired It’s Just Lunch. IJL’s matchmakers got to know him and his preferences. They selected his dates, arranged schedules, and even made the restaurant reservations. Dating 

became stress-free and fun. Larry was a practical guy and didn’t believe in love-at-first-sight, but that was until IJL introduced him to Ping.

so I could feel some breathing room. I needed to slow things down to speed them up. IJL fit that criteria perfectly for me.

What was your dating life like before joining It’s Just Lunch? Lawrence: Chaotic! I was meeting a lot of women but not the right women for me. Online dating was time consuming and stressful. I needed someone to help out, to relieve me of the dating busy work

Ping: I was very busy with work when I discovered IJL. I was seeing different people I mostly met through friends and by attending events. Online dating seemed so time consuming so I was never willing to invest what little time I had into something so hit and miss.

I used to tell my friends: Who has time for online dating…browsing through profiles all night when I could be doing something else with my time." Why did you decide to join It’s Just Lunch? L: A good friend of mine mentioned that IJL may be a good resource for meeting women who were a better match for me. Plus, joining would let me get back some time in my life that was sorely lacking.

P: I fly frequently for work and for fun, and when I saw It’s Just Lunch in the airline magazine, it was as if the matchmaker was talking to me! One day after a particularly long flight and wanting to snuggle with someone and watch a movie, I decided it couldn't hurt to give it a try. What did you enjoy most about the It's Just Lunch process? L: Having someone doing all the work to select and schedule a date. It was like I had my own personal dating concierge to take care of all the details. All I had to do was be on time for my date and be myself. It really was a stress-free experience.

P: The stress-free experience! I had a professional matchmaker to select matches and set up restaurant reservations for me. All I needed to do was to show up and focus on getting to know my date.

What was it like working with the It's Just Lunch matchmakers? L: Easy and convenient. At the time the company I was working for was going through a merger so I was away from home quite a bit in all day meetings. I’d finish my day and there would be a

voicemail from my matchmaker telling me about my next match. I’d call back, get the details and run through my availability. The next thing I knew I was in front of an interesting woman having a great conversation. P: Stress-free and fun! Exactly what I needed because dating can be so frustrating. I always looked forward to meeting my next match.

Do you have any advice for singles who want to meet that special someone? L: I often ask my clients: Would you rather drive across the country in a Toyota Corolla or a BMW 5 series? They always say the 5 series. You get what you pay for. Investing in yourself and your future with someone special means investing in the right matchmaking service. For me that was It’s Just Lunch. P: Invest in your own happiness, it is always worth it. I never would have met Larry if I hadn’t joined It’s Just Lunch. It’s the best decision I've ever made.

IT’S JUST LUNCH SIGNATURE MATCHMAKING PROCESS: 1 Through a series of conversations, we get to know you and your relationship goals. 2 Your match is hand-selected and your date arranged. We’ll even make the restaurant reservations. 3 Meet your date face to face. 4 Call us with feedback after your date. 5 Put your membership on hold if sparks flew. (No sparks? No problem. We’ll get to work arranging your next match.)

The success of It’s Just Lunch is built on creating high quality matches in low pressure situations. In 26 years, they’ve set up millions of first dates. Make meeting someone special a priority. Get in touch at 800-8586526 or www.itsjustlunch.com.

Gary’s Greeting

Five Characteristics of Effective Leaders For as long as I can remember, I have studied and admired Leaders. In grade school, I began reading biographies of the presidents of the United States, and ever since, I have studied Leaders from all walks of life—from politics to the corporate world. I’ve also been blessed to have had wonderful Leaders and mentors during my career, especially our Founder and Chairman Emeritus, Herb Kelleher, and our President Emeritus, Colleen Barrett. Through these lifelong studies, I’ve seized on five characteristics critical to be a successful Leader. Leaders must care. Leadership is about people. Period. Great Leadership is about inspiring people,

serving people, caring for people, and caring about people. You have to show you care through daily actions. Years ago, we assembled a panel of Southwest Employees who had served our country in the Iraq War, and asked them to describe what great Leadership looked like to them. To a soldier, their heroes were the ones who cared about them—as human beings.

Leaders must communicate. Not communicating well is one of the great mistakes a Leader can make. When Leaders don’t communicate well, Employees don’t feel valued. For that reason, I can’t think of anything more important in Leadership than communication.

Good communication involves listening and genuinely respecting others’ opinions. Any time you work with a group, you should expect disagreement. You should embrace dissent. Teamwork isn’t about “going along.” It’s about hearing all views, admitting mistakes, and sharing risks and rewards jointly. Leaders must have character. To be a great Leader or Team Member, you must have character: honesty, integrity, respect for others, and selflessness. There’s an old saying that adversity doesn’t create character, it reveals it. Leaders must be competent. Effective Leaders know their stuff. You must be competent. Under-promise and over-prepare. I’ve found that technical aspects of a profession are the easier parts, and the human relationship side is the most challenging. Still, you must be competent and proficient to get anything done. Leaders must have courage. Finally, Leaders must have courage. It’s easier to be a follower and let someone else own a problem or make a decision. It’s much harder to stand up, speak up, and be accountable.

Gary Kelly Chairman and CEO Southwest Airlines

Saludos de Gary

Cinco Características de los Líderes Efectivos Desde que tengo memoria, he estudiado y admirado a los Líderes. Durante la primaria, empecé a leer las biografías de los presidentes de los Estados Unidos, y desde entonces, he analizado a líderes de todos los ámbitos, desde la política hasta el mundo corporativo. También he tenido la gran fortuna de haber contado con maravillosos Líderes y mentores durante mi carrera, especialmente nuestro Fundador y Presidente Emérito, Herb Kelleher, y nuestra Presidenta Emérita, Colleen Barrett. A través de estos estudios que he realizado durante toda mi vida, he identificado y me he apropiado de cinco características críticas para ser un Líder exitoso. Los Líderes deben interesarse. El liderazgo tiene que ver con las personas. Punto. Un Gran Liderazgo tiene que ver con inspirar a la gente, servir a

la gente, cuidar a la gente y preocuparse por la gente. Hay que mostrarle a las personas que te importan a través de acciones diarias. Hace años, reunimos un panel de Empleados de Southwest que prestaron servicio a nuestro país durante la Guerra de Irak, y les pedimos que describieran lo que para ellos era un Gran Liderazgo. Para un soldado, sus héroes eran los que se preocupaban por ellos como seres humanos. Los Líderes deben comunicar. No comunicar bien es uno de los grandes errores que un Líder puede cometer. Cuando los Líderes no se comunican bien, los Empleados no se sienten valorados. Por eso, no puedo pensar en nada más importante en el Liderazgo que la comunicación. Una buena comunicación implica

escuchar y respetar genuinamente las opiniones de los demás. Siempre que se trabaja con un grupo, es de esperarse que existan desacuerdos. Hay que aceptar las discrepancias. El trabajo en equipo no se trata de “estar de acuerdo”. Se trata de escuchar todas las opiniones, admitir errores y compartir riesgos y recompensas en conjunto. Los Líderes deben tener carácter. Para ser un gran Líder o Miembro del Equipo, se debe tener carácter: honestidad, integridad, respeto por los demás y ser desinteresado. Hay un viejo dicho que dice que la adversidad no forja el carácter, sino que lo revela. Los Líderes deben ser competentes. Los Líderes eficaces saben lo que hacen. Un Líder debe ser competente. Nunca prometer de más y siempre estar muy bien preparado. He llegado a la conclusión de que los aspectos técnicos de una profesión son la parte más sencilla, y las relaciones humanas son la más difícil. Sin embargo, un Líder debe ser competente y apto para llevar a cabo cualquier cosa. Los Líderes deben ser valientes. Por último, los Líderes deben ser valientes. Es más fácil ser un seguidor y dejar que alguien más resuelva un problema o tome una decisión. Es mucho más difícil ponerse de pie, hablar y ser responsable.

Gary Kelly Presidente de la Junta Directiva y Director Ejecutivo Southwest Airlines

“I love talking to Customers and hosting them in my living room in the sky.” —LAURIE LISS, FLIGHT ATTENDANT

Whenever Customers meet Flight Attendant Laurie Liss, they experience true Southwest Hospitality. Along with anticipating Customers’ needs, Laurie gives handmade travel pillows to active military members and veterans. When she flies, she carries a dozen of them in her bag. In November, Laurie will be a part of Operation Freedom Bird, a trip bringing Vietnam veterans on a healing journey to Washington, D.C. Laurie also participates in local projects to make superhero capes for kids with medical conditions. Thank you, Laurie, for being an example of a true Servant’s Heart. —Lorraine Bailey, Communication & Outreach LIFE LESSONS “I’ve learned that you get back what you put in. Even small gestures can make a big difference in a Customer’s day.” ALL FOR ONE “Every day we have the chance to show Customers that Southwest is made up of individual Employees who care.”

SMALL WORLD “When I gave a pillow to a group of veterans in the gate area, I learned they were going to Phoenix to play bingo with other World War II veterans. They told me about a 92-yearold friend who could still fit in her uniform! I realized I knew who they were talking about: I had the pleasure of meeting Rose on an Honor Flight a few months prior.”

SEW-STOPPER

To thank Laurie for her work and dedication, Penn & Teller is proud to give her two tickets to see the show in Las Vegas. Congratulations, Laurie!

“You don’t need a certain job title to be a leader. Start acting like one, and the rest will follow.” —HEIKE YOUNG, CONTENT INNOVATION LEAD, SALESFORCE Heike Young spends most of her time in the clouds. As host of the Marketing Cloudcast, a podcast from Salesforce, Heike travels from the digital cloud to real ones 35,000 feet in the air as she crosses the country for events. A Southwest Companion Pass holder, Heike often plans weekend getaways with her husband, Khad, to explore local restaurants. Recently, she even cashed in Rapid Rewards points for her first international trip flying Southwest to Liberia, Costa Rica, and Khad got to come along for the ride. Here’s to many more memories, Heike. See you in the clouds! —Adam Rucker, Communication & Outreach WHY SOUTHWEST?

“Southwest’s flexibility is a huge lifesaver. If my work requires an additional stop or I want to tack on a personal trip, I don’t have to worry about a fee.” CAREER ADVICE “Own your

opinions and mistakes. One of the greatest bosses I’ve had was a well-respected leader, but if he did something wrong, he was the first to acknowledge his mistake.”

Heroes of the Heart Award Congratulations to the SWA U

Coordination and Scheduling Team. What do the Ramp Agent carefully loading your bags onto the plane, the Customer Service Agent helping you at the ticket counter, and the Flight Attendant giving the inflight safety briefing have in common? Aside from being members of our Southwest Family, they have all been trained at SWA U. And that means they have experienced the outstanding service of the winners of this year’s esteemed Heroes of the Heart Award—the SWA U Coordination and Scheduling Team. For more than two decades, Southwest has celebrated a hardworking, behind-the-scenes Team with the Heroes of the Heart Award. We unveil the annual award in our Dallas Headquarters on Valentine’s Day amidst a sea of Employees. In 2012, Southwest began to centralize 11 separate training Teams into one department that could design, deliver, and measure training for Employees across all of our workgroups. Coordinators and Schedulers from various Departments formed one

Team with the purpose of collaborating on Company initiatives, providing consistency in scheduling, continuously improving our processes, and building a community of best practices. Today, SWA U programs impact all 54,000 Employees, and the SWA U Coordination and Scheduling Team is responsible for every logistical detail. They take a hospitable approach to ensure the ultimate training experience for Employees, who then create the ultimate travel experience for Customers. This 16-person Team is the backbone of Training and Development at Southwest. They brainstorm ideas that will improve the Employee experience and reduce costs, allowing us to return the savings to our Customers. The SWA U Coordination and Scheduling Team even created the idea for the rotating shuttle, which transports students from hotels to class. In 2016 alone, the SWA U Coordination and Scheduling Team scheduled more than 1,000 trips between the students’ hotels and our Training and Operations Support Center, managed more than 100,000 hotel nights for 65,000 students, and procured more than 230,000 meals. The SWA U Coordination and Scheduling Team changes lives by working behind the scenes to help us continue operating with Southwest Heart, and it has been an honor to recognize their value this year through the Heroes of the Heart Award! —Cheryl Hughey

Community Outreach

Every Employee’s Responsibility

Southwest Airlines embraces diversity and inclusion. We believe that a community is more than a place— it’s at the heart of what brings us together. At Southwest, our heart is taking care of people, which means celebrating and honoring what makes us different in the same ways we celebrate and honor what brings us together. “I don’t think it’s enough to just respect diversity, and I don’t think you can simply be open to it,” Southwest Airlines Chairman and CEO Gary Kelly says. “You have to embrace it.” From the executive suite to the ticket counter, our mission is to honor, celebrate, and embrace diversity. The Golden Rule drives our efforts. We host regular “Power of Inclusion” events where Employees interact with other Employees and guest speakers with diverse backgrounds. We also host programs to increase Employee awareness and engagement during Black History Month, Women’s History Month, Asian American & Pacific Islander Heritage Month, LGBTQ Pride

Month, National Hispanic Heritage Month, and National Disability Employment Awareness Month, to name a few. Our Diversity Council also advocates for all Employees with one unified voice. Loving people extends into every community that we serve. Last year, we partnered with Accenture and Southern Methodist University for our annual Inclusion & Innovation Summit. The event brought together leaders from academia, business, athletics, and the arts for important conversations and interactive sessions on building and maintaining more inclusive communities.

This was totally a surprise, and one that I won’t forget. Mark Greising is another reason why I will continue to be loyal to Southwest Airlines for my travel needs. —Delores Sutton

Recently, I was waiting to board a connecting flight. I was in a wheelchair and had been rushed to the gate just in time for boarding. I asked Captain Mark Greising, who was standing behind me, if he knew the length of the flight. I wondered if I had time to get something to eat before takeoff because I had been on another lengthy flight and wanted to pick up a sandwich. Another passenger offered me one of his nutrition bars, which I declined. At that time, Capt. Greising asked

Dear Southwest,

HOME SAFELY

While waiting for a Southwest flight home to MDW from SFO, I suddenly lost consciousness and fell to the ground. Thanks to customer service supervisor Bryan Dal Porto and the kind people who fly Southwest, I was taken care of until the paramedics came. As if that wasn’t enough, Bryan called me at the hospital that evening to check on me, and he met my frightened husband at SFO the next day after he flew in to see me. He also helped us make our arrangements back to Chicago after a three-day hospital stay and gave us See’s Candies and sourdough bread. Bryan went above and beyond the call of duty and made me a Southwest flyer for life! I cannot tell Bryan and the Southwest team at SFO how thankful I am that you

FOR USE BY MEN & WOMEN The physician-recommended cap that’s clinically proven to regrow hair discreetly under a hat is now available for men and women. No need to endure the embarrassment of astronaut-type helmets or Cinderella-style headband gadgets. Capillus laser therapy caps prevent progression of hair loss and regrow thinning hair in a dignified manner. Manufactured in the USA, Capillus laser therapy is FDACLEARED and has no known adverse side-effects, so you can use it with confidence.† Nothing tops it for convenience. Wear it just 30 minutes every other day. Unlike laser comb type devices, Capillus lasers require no effort from the user - making it a preferred choice of doctors worldwide.* Our Capillus laser caps start at a very affordable price of $799 for the Capillus82 – an incredible value for the amount of lasers (comb devices are priced as much as 4x the amount per laser) - and range up to our premier Capillus272Pro, the clinical strength device available through select hair restoration physicians.

Capillus laser therapy works through the process of photobiomodulation. Just like plants convert light energy to produce oxygen from carbon dioxide, cells on the scalp convert light energy from lasers into chemical energy to restore normal function in hair follicles. If caught on time, photobiomodulation can reverse the process of hair loss in people with androgenetic alopecia by restoring cellular function at the cellular level of the hair follicle, restoring the hair follicle.

took care of me, helped my family, and got us back home safely. —Catherine Byrne PROBLEM SOLVER

I’d like to commend Oakland ramp agent Lajon Taylor, who saved my long-awaited vacation. I left my bag at the opposite end of the terminal from my connecting flight and discovered this only as I was entering the cabin. Lajon insisted on going back at a dead run (as I would have been dead after

that run) to search for and retrieve my bag with all my money, ID, passport, and embarkation papers for our cruise out of New Orleans. He went way above excellent customer service standards. —Robert Osborn A CALMING INFLUENCE

I need to let someone know about the amazing flight attendant, Ashley Clark, on my flight yesterday. Ashley’s friendly and witty demeanor over the intercom system helped put everyone

at ease. But, personally, she was such a blessing to me. I don’t travel well, and I was traveling with my 7-month-old son for the first time. She saw me, terrified and shakin’ in my boots, and she came and sat next to me while others boarded the plane. She chatted with me, gave me great advice for taking off and landing to help my son’s ears, and then worked hard to make sure to find a single woman traveler to sit in the row with me! She found a very nice lady who also helped me in the few moments my little man was not so happy. I admittedly was terrified of what flying with my baby would look like, and Ashley made it so easy. She was a gift I didn’t deserve in a very stressful and overwhelming situation. Tears were shed (on my part) getting on the plane, so when she sat next to me and talked through things with me, it was just what I needed to get my mama strength back. Thank you, Ashley. You are a gift to everyone on your flights! —Kelsey Merrill PILOTS TO THE RESCUE

“Wow!” is all I can say. At the Richmond airport, I had just dropped off my bag and was walking toward TSA when I slipped and fell right on the terrazzo floor. I was shocked and stunned and wasn’t sure I could get up. As I was sitting on the floor assessing the situation, two Southwest employees approached to see if I was all right. Captain Tom Hunt and first officer Keith Hicks were my superheroes! It was apparent I was nervous and unsure of my condition. While Tom helped me up to a chair, Keith found a wheelchair. They gathered my purse and computer bag and wheeled me on through. Then we were off to the gate. As Tom was speaking to the gate person, I realized we were at a Southwest gate—I was flying another airline. Keith wheeled me to my gate and went back to his Southwest flight. It rarely happens these days that people take the time to assist and do all they can to ensure a stranger’s safety. Thank you! I so appreciate their concern and response to my spill. You should be proud to have superheroes in your employ. —Betty Pitts

“I’ll make a chocolate mole,” I told the host. Having recently tried the dish for the first time in a Mexican restaurant, I figured I could improvise on my vague impression. With practiced moves, I emptied a can of soup into the saucepan, followed it with a handful of ground beef, and sloshed in some milk. While the mixture heated on the stove, I crumbled a bowlful of Cocoa Puffs between my fingers. Once the beef had browned in the soup, I dumped the sugary cereal powder into the pot and stirred. A few dollops of hot sauce, and … Horrible. My tongue felt as if it had licked the floor of a deli. Still, the mole was a huge hit at the party. Friends still talk about it, though I’m not sure any of them actually tried it.

While I’ll clearly never make it on Food Network, I like to think of myself as something of a trendsetter. More than ever, food has become a bountiful playground for inventive minds, not just with what we’re cooking but with how we get the food, who prepares it, and how we avoid wasting it. Look at what this issue serves up on page 45: a project that reaps the bounty of backyard fruit trees. A luncheonette that turns leftover chicken parts into matzo ball soup. Combat soldiers taught to butcher local livestock. A restaurant that recruits the culinary wisdom of immigrants and refugees. Which goes to show that the human imagination is bigger than our stomachs.

CORRECTION

In “The Ghost of Capablanca” [June 2017], we said José Raúl Capablanca won the world championship every year from 1921 until 1927. He won the match in 1921, but the next championship wasn’t held until 1927. Capablanca lost that year. We regret this error.

They did all their homework Meagan worked in human resources. Brian worked as an oil and gas drilling consultant overseeing drilling locations in Texas. Between the two of them, neither of the Van Dycks had a résumé of expertise in the field of educational child care. Nor did they have entrepreneurial experience running an independently owned and operated business. But what they lacked in experience, they made up for with a zealous spirit and in doing all their homework to fulfill a growing need in their community. With highlighters and post-it notes in hand, Meagan read the 222-page Texas state child care standards… four times. “I’m a rule follower,” said Meagan. “So I wanted to know the state regulations in our industry so we could exceed expectations. Some might be surprised to know we’re self-taught, but if you judged a book by its cover, you’d think we know exactly what we’re doing, because we do. Because we did all our homework, we have confidence parents are looking for.”

The couple researched seven different franchise concepts over six months before deciding to open a school with Kiddie Academy. Kiddie Academy is a professional, award-winning and accredited child care company, and the franchisor also met a personal standard: the organization aligned with Meagan and Brian’s values, ethics and commitment to their community. The Van Dyck’s chose to build their community in a “small, big town” near Texas A&M University at the Kiddie Academy of College Station. Meagan and Brian were aware of the challenges of venturing into an unknown-for-them industry, but knew they would succeed with the support of Kiddie Academy, their experienced and knowledgeable franchisor. Brian says parents often tell them, “this is where y’all belong.” Learn about Kiddie Academy at www.FranchiseKA.com or by calling 410-777-5352.

Around strangers, our ideal amount of personal space is

95.4 centimeters.

For the less metric-minded among us: Americans like to keep about 3 feet between themselves and unfamiliar faces. That’s according to a study published in the Journal of Cross-Cultural Psychology that examined different cultures’ preferred interpersonal distances and the factors influencing them. The team of researchers surveyed 8,943 participants from 42 countries and found that age, temperature, and gender can all shape breathing room requirements. Women and older respondents, for example, preferred additional distance from strangers, but those in warmer climes didn’t mind being nearer to new people. In all, Argentinians opted for the smallest amount of space between strangers (76.5 cm), while Romanians wanted the most (139.6 cm). Talk about a long-distance relationship.

For acquaintances and closer confidants, respectively, Americans’ ideal interpersonal distances drop to 68.7 cm and 47.7 cm.

For more than a decade, the corner of Fifth Avenue and J Street in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter sat empty.

Flash forward to today. Pendry San Diego opened its posh doors earlier this year and immediately became a beacon for guests seeking not only a good night’s rest, but also food and drink galore. Guests have six different on-site restaurants and bars to choose from, ranging from the fresh catch–focused Lionfish to Oxford Social Club, the basement nightclub. In the end, it was worth the wait.

Brazilian Lemonade

Every summer, the mercury in Las Vegas climbs higher than almost any other U.S. city. (The average high for July? A whopping 104 degrees.) To compensate, bars stash the stouts and ban the bourbons and instead reach for lighter, citrus-based drinks. At SG Bar, that means the Brazilian Lemonade. It starts with a base of Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, which is then balanced with mango puree. Jalapeno-mint lemonade adds heat and freshness, while ginger ale adds effervescence.

Thirsty? Whip up a batch for your next pool party.

MAKE IT ↗ Combine 8 ounces Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, 3½ ounces mango puree, 14 ounces jalapeno-mint infused lemonade*, and 7 ounces ginger ale in a carafe. Stir to combine. Serve in ice-filled glasses, and garnish with mint. Makes 4–5 servings. 40 southwest july 2017

WORK Takeaway

Ava DuVernay

When it comes to career changes, the Oscar-nominated director says embrace the small steps.

Before I directed my first short film at 32, I worked in publicity and was on a lot of movie sets. That was a privilege a lot of directors don’t have—the opportunity to watch other directors direct—and I learned about different kinds of film and styles of directing. When I started to play with directing, I kept my day job until I could figure out if it was something I could support myself doing. The week after I won best director at Sundance with my fourth film, Middle of Nowhere, I quit publicity. Most people feel like you have to make a career change in one fell swoop, but my advice is to embrace the progression. If it’s something you’re creating or producing, there’s room for overlap.

Ava’s next film, A Wrinkle in Time, is based off Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved novel.

OUT TAKES SHAPESHIF TER I don’t have a preferred genre or form. I like to move between narrative films and documentary films, commercial projects and independent projects. That’s part of the creative process for me. It’s more about the story than the genre.

MUST-SEE The new Smithsonian National Museum of African American History & Culture is a perspective changer and a mecca of so much I hold dear. Every American should visit—it really brings you into the heart of a people who have been marginalized.

Zola

This wedding-planning website revolutionizes registries for the modern age. Here’s how co-founder and CEO Shan-Lyn Ma describes the platform: The year my co-founder Nobu Nakaguchi and I started Zola happened to be the year all my closest friends got married. I was buying presents off traditional department store registries and found it was a terrible e-commerce experience. Now, using Zola, couples can register for products from hundreds of brands, as well as for experiences and cash. For a year after the wedding, anything they buy from Zola is 10 percent off.

The fine-dining restaurant cooking up second chances CALA

By Rebecca Flint Marx

on a recent afternoon at Cala, a contemporary Mexican restaurant in San Francisco, Candace Hightower takes reservations while cooks prep for dinner service. Two women at the restaurant’s lunchtime taco counter strip thorns from cactus leaves and fill cups with agua fresca. “Right around now,” Hightower says with a grin, “it starts bumping.” In many respects, Cala isn’t different from most other high-profile San Francisco restaurants: It serves sophisticated, beautifully executed food in a sophisticated, beautifully executed dining room. But unlike most San Francisco restaurants—or really, most restaurants anywhere—it recruits formerly incarcerated people to staff its dining room and kitchen. Nearly half of its 40-some employees have prison records. “We seek them out,” says Emma Rosenbush, Cala’s general manager. “I want them.” 46 southwest july 2017

Before she started working here, Hightower had never heard of a trout tostada, much less enjoyed one. She also never thought she’d apply for a job without getting judged for the felony DUI conviction on her record; when she’d tried in the past, things would get awkward. (“Oh, that position is no longer available,” she recalls.) But at Cala, there wasn’t any awkwardness; there was just opportunity. “And to have an opportunity without judgment,” Hightower says, “was pretty amazing.” Opened in 2015, Cala is the first U.S. restaurant from Gabriela Cámara, a legendary restaurateur in her native Mexico City. Back in Mexico, Cámara says, she has never hesitated to hire people with troubled pasts. “In restaurants, you always hire people who have issues,” she says. “Restaurants take everybody in.” So when Rosenbush, who had previously worked in Berkeley’s Prison Law Office, approached her about hiring people with conviction histories, Cámara was game. But her open-mindedness was born as much from pragmatism as compassion: Thanks to San Francisco’s labor shortage and high cost of living, finding loyal employees is tough. “We needed people who could give good service,” Cámara says. “It’s not just july 2017 southwest 47

because I’m a good person. If you have staff who know how important they are, they’re more likely to do a better job.” To find employees, Rosenbush and Cámara reached out to San Francisco’s Adult Probation Department and the Delancey Street Foundation, a nonprofit that offers residential rehabilitation services and vocational training for substance abusers and ex-convicts. While some of their new staff had prior restaurant experience, one didn’t know the difference between sparkling and still water. Another didn’t know wine is made from grapes. There were other challenges, such as the addiction issues some employees faced, as well as their need for services to help them readjust to regular working life. “All of a sudden, we were that support,” Rosenbush says. “But we’re a restaurant, not a social service.” So she reached out to the rehabilitation community to build a better support network for Cala’s employees. She and Cámara also decided to make Cala a dry restaurant (meaning employees can only drink there as guests) and adopted a hard-line stance in dealing with problems. “It’s tough love,” says Hightower. “Like, ‘don’t come here thinking this is a handout.’ But it’s love, it’s all love.” As she spoke, the restaurant was suffused with light and the camaraderie of its employees. Watching them work, there was no way to know who had spent time in prison and who hadn’t. And that’s the point. “You come into Cala and you can’t tell who is who,” Cámara says. “You just have a bunch of lovely people wanting to take care of you.” 48 southwest july 2017

PORTLAND FRUIT TREE PROJECT

The plum-plucking group gleaning fruit trees to help feed the needy By Tove Danovich summertime in portland, Oregon, means that waves of homeowners are inundated with more fruit than their stomachs can handle. The city’s lush winters and warm summers lead to fruit-fat backyards: A small semi-dwarf apple tree can create up to 500 glossy apples during a season, while a full-sized apple tree can yield up to 800 pounds of fruit. That’s enough to make you never want to eat an apple pie or drink a glass of cider ever again. Meanwhile, because of its limited shelf life, fresh food is often hard to find at food pantries and expensive to buy in stores. So, since 2006, the Portland Fruit Tree Project has been rescuing fruit from homeowners whose backyard bounties have become too fruitful, as well as from farms with unpicked fruit to spare. Its aim is to reduce food waste and increase access to healthy, fresh food. From mid-June through mid-November, small groups of volunteers snatch ILLUSTRATION BY MELINDA JOSIE

F2_food_DE.indd 49

up everything from early plums to quince, persimmon, and kiwi near the end of the growing season. Harvest program manager Nicole Weinstock remembers helping to harvest 600 pounds of shiro plums, a yellow variety that clusters tightly to the branches. To see and harvest so much fruit “was a great joy, a great shock, and a great sticky mess in all equal parts,” Weinstock says. To participate, homeowners add themselves to a volunteer list, and their trees are vetted for access and health. Then they contact PFTP two weeks before their fruit ripens. Half of the fruit picked at each event is divided among the volunteers, and the remaining half is donated to local food pantries, food banks, and health clinics. Some of their events are familyfriendly, allowing kids to get up close to their food. PFTP also provides Spanish-language harvests to support the increasing number of Latino residents in Portland. In

2016, the PFTP hosted 117 harvest events, gleaning 63,000 pounds of fruit that would have likely gone to waste otherwise. Tshombé Brown, PFTP’s communications and office coordinator, started volunteering as a harvest coordinator in 2008 as a way to make friends in his new city—not surprising, considering that people frequently bond over food (as well as hard labor). A few years ago, Brown says, a woman met someone at an orchard party; the two eventually became good friends. Now they make sure to sign up for the same harvest every year, as a “friendiversary” celebration. The project is a reminder that not all the fruit in Oregon comes from orchards outside the city limits. Just knowing how many homeowners are hiding juicy blueberries, pears, and peaches in their backyard makes it that much more intriguing to explore the city, hunting for edible treasure. july 2017 southwest 49

ROCK Y MOUNTAIN INSTITUTE OF MEAT

The butcher training Army Special Forces to stay healthy By Allyson Reedy

in february 2014, Jason Nauert, director of the Rocky Mountain Institute of Meat, a Colorado Springs butchery school, received an odd email from the U.S. Army. Sgt. 1st Class Myron Billingsley was in a bind; his Special Forces soldiers were getting sick off subpar foreign meat while stationed in remote parts of the world. Did Nauert—a butcher with zero military experience—have any ideas on how to help these soldiers? He did. A couple weeks later, the pair met for beers at a Colorado Springs brewpub. Nauert told Billingsley he could take the American Culinary Federation’s professional butchery course and adapt it to the needs of soldiers out in the elements—no walk-in coolers, no butcher knives, 50 southwest july 2017

F2_food_DE.indd 50

no luxuries. “I had to get creative about my approach and development of the course,” Nauert says. “Chefs are in a controlled environment, or as controlled as a kitchen can be. The soldiers are left to the elements of the outdoors.” That fall, Nauert started training Special Forces with a six-day, hands-on course. Soldiers learned to identify healthy animals, butcher them, store the meat, and cook as much of the animal as possible to maximize nutrition. Army Staff Sgt. Brandon Mayo took Nauert’s course in 2015. Mayo was attached to a Special Forces unit sent to remote locations in Africa. They

didn’t have a base with food supplies, and in order to feed themselves, they’d have to find a local market, buy whatever animal was available, and butcher it. “None of us had any real training in how to do that, and how to do it in a sanitary way so the guys don’t get sick,” Mayo says. Besides learning how to butcher cleanly and quickly to avoid spoilage, Mayo says one of the best things Nauert taught him was how to cook everything on the animal, using scraps for sausage or head cheese, a cold cut. “It’s better-tasting field food,” Mayo says. “I’m still not eating head cheese, though.” PHOTOGRAPH BY REBECCA STUMPF

COMMUNIT Y OVENS

The Minnesota communities coming together to make (and break) bread

mitchell, south dakota, is home to a sprawling Corn Palace, adorned with murals made from grain. Houston has an oddball cottage constructed exclusively of beer cans. And in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, the United Methodist Church there has become widely known as “the bread church.” By Sarah Baird In this case, though, there are no baguette columns, and no one is walking on sourdough tiles. The church’s nickname came about through its work creating a network of community ovens across the state. Community ovens have been in use for centuries, not only as a vehicle for firing up baked goods but also as a way to bring people together to share stories and a common resource. Primarily wood burning and built outdoors, the ovens have seen a swell in popularity, fueled by the success of other pieces of the “sharing” movement—like tool lending libraries and seed banks. Equal parts ancient and novel, the ovens have popped up from Colorado to Vermont, with Minnesota serving as a (somewhat unlikely) national hub. “Our oven is a way that we can reach out to the community in a unique manner,” says Mike Faust, who helped construct the White Bear Lake community oven—and then nine subsequent ovens across the state. At its largest event, the oven churned out 180 pizzas, and then gave the slices away for free. “It attracted people and provided a comfortable way to get to know each other.” As for oven construction, Faust uses a full-on brick-and-mortar style, which means the ovens require several hours of preheating before loaves can go in. Others, like David Cargo, a community oven advocate and leader in the St. Paul Bread Club, uses a “stacked brick” model, which allows the vessel to heat up speedily. But there’s no technique rivalry to be found here. In true “Midwestern Nice” fashion, Cargo says all methods are good ones. “There’s room in this world for both the staple and the paper clip, you know?” And if you’re hoping to build an oven of your very own, Faust recommends determining how you’ll use it beforehand. White Bear Lake’s purview includes baking classes, a “breadstick communion” church service, and a charity-focused “baking with a purpose” day. (A large oven can hold up to a whopping 25 loaves at a time.) In Minneapolis’ Kingfield neighborhood, pizza nights have been a focus ever since volunteers constructed a public oven in 2015. The opportunities for creation—and connection—seem limitless. “Minnesotans like community ovens partially because of our culture,” says Cargo. “There’s a focus on community and mutual reliance much more so than self-reliance. We like to work together.”

ROOSTER SOUP CO.

The awardwinning matzo balls that are eliminating food waste By Nell McShane Wulfhart

funded through kickstarter, fueled by leftover chicken, and staffed by volunteers, Rooster Soup Co. is a hybrid creature that just also happens to be one of the top tables in Philadelphia. It started with James Beard Award–winning chef Michael Solomonov’s Federal Donuts, which turns out doughnuts like strawberry-lavender and banana cream pie, but also addictive gourmet fried chicken. All that chicken, though, had a downside: Every week, they found themselves with more than 500 pounds of unused chicken parts. So, in January, Federal Donuts partnered with the nonprofit Broad Street Ministry and opened Rooster Soup Co., a retrochic luncheonette, to turn that chicken into soup. This isn’t your ordinary dinerstyle chicken noodle. We’re talking smoked matzo ball soup, made with schmaltz and fresh turmeric, that locals slurp down at the long

counter and banquette seating. (Plastic-covered menus are a knowing nod toward old-school authenticity.) The luncheonette serves lunch and dinner (plus breakfast on the weekends), with Solomonov’s signature touches seen in a Yemenite chicken pot pie and a BLT that subs in a potato latke for lettuce. But the soup, which Solomonov calls “the ultimate comfort food,” is the star of the show. One-hundred percent of the profits go to Broad Street Ministry, which provides social services and meals for Philadelphia’s most vulnerable citizens, in a neat—and waste-free—circle of food.

UBUNTU STREET CAFÉ

The refugees and immigrants feeding each other, and Seattle By Naomi Tomky

back at home in Ukraine, Iryna Mykhalchuk and her mother-in-law would make giant 10-liter batches of borscht each Sunday, cooking the ruby-red beet soup in a pot so big Mykhalchuk needed to climb onto a step stool to stir it. As the simmering beef stock perfumed the air, she’d stir in julienned beets—rather than grated, as they often are in the Russian version of the dish—potatoes, and green cabbage (another uniquely Ukrainian feature). The chunky soup brimmed with vegetables, bubbling in an enormous portion that would feed the entire house: her own three children, her husband’s twin brother and his family, her in-laws, even her grandparents-in-law. When they sat down to eat, she’d toast bread in a pan with oil, butter, and fresh garlic until crisp and fragrant, a piece for everyone as they sat down to Sunday supper. Now, when she cooks borscht for her family of five in Seattle, where she’s lived for a year and a half, she has trouble translating the recipe into smaller quantities. But when executive chef Lisa Nakamura, who once cooked in the venerated French Laundry kitchen and has run several of her own critically acclaimed restaurants, asked her to recreate it as a restaurant recipe for Ubuntu Street Café in Kent, Washington, Mykhalchuk was ready. She even paired it with little rolls she calls babushka. PHOTOGRAPH BY KYLE JOHNSON

F2_food_DE.indd 55

Ubuntu, which opened in March in the Seattle suburb, is the teaching kitchen for Project Feast, a nonprofit designed to “transform lives by providing pathways to sustainable employment in the food industry” by training refugees and immigrants in the kitchen. Originally, that came through a six-week, part-time kitchen classroom program. But student feedback indicated the need for a more intense program, and community feedback encouraged something more interactive. After a year of work, the result is Ubuntu, which brings a small number of apprentices into a fourmonth program. july 2017 southwest 55

A lentil stew from the small African nation of Eritrea shares space with a Burmese chicken curry, a world of flavors on a tiny—just three appetizers, four entrees, and two desserts—menu.

wanted to make sure the apprentices filled in gaps in their cooking knowledge. “Cake isn’t a thing in all cultures,” for example, so the menu includes Mexican-inspired tres leches cupcakes for them to learn on, Prasad says. Tuesdays at Ubuntu are for prepping. Mykhalchuk rolls out small lamb meatballs called kofta, while her fellow apprentice, Tenaye Adem, grates onions. Two metal tables are pushed together to form a counter, and chef Nakamura keeps a watchful eye on them. She’s making crepes, which will later be lunch for the team. Adem looks up from her onions and, with a nod and a look, points out a bowl of ginger that Mykhalchuk forgot to add to the meatballs. Mykhalchuk scrapes the portion of the pan already rolled out, adds the ginger, and massages the mixture together. The women spend their days helping each other, working as a team to decipher recipes or turn their own home cooking into a catering dish, puzzling over instructions with heads together or assisting in finding the right measuring spoon. Nakamura watches, occasionally guiding, but mostly letting them work on their own. “I tend to French-ify everything,” she says. Instead, she works with the women to walk the fine line between adapting the dish to restaurant cooking and Westernizing it. The cafe is housed in a centuryold train station, along with nonprofit offices, a martial arts studio, and a sushi restaurant. The hall ends in a small room where a few mismatched tables and chairs mingle, and a glass wall offers a view into the cafe kitchen.

welcome: spiced stews simmering over a low flame. Adem takes a quick break from chopping onions to chat on the phone with one of her two daughters back in Ethiopia, to whom she speaks about once a week. Despite her enthusiasm for the training program, Adem acknowledges that her struggle with arthritis makes her unlikely to end up working in a restaurant. She walks with a slight limp, keeping one leg almost straight. The 48year-old grandmother is hardly suited for the arduous physical work of a restaurant kitchen. For 30 years, her husband worked as a truck driver in the U.S. and she stayed home in Ethiopia with her daughters. Most winters, when business was slow, he’d come home for a few months. Four years ago, with her daughters both married and soon to have children of their own, she joined her husband. But waiting this long has its downside: She no longer has any sway, legally, to bring her daughters to the U.S. Now, her husband’s health issues force him to work less at his job, which also supports their children and grandchildren and Adem’s mother in Ethiopia. She hopes to use her newly improved English and kitchen skills to find a job in elder care, as a cook or an aide, to help support her family. Mykhalchuk is also unsure about ending up in a restaurant kitchen. In Ukraine, she ran a school kitchen, cooking for 250 kids five days a week. She was somewhat ambivalent about leaving her home in western Ukraine, pulled here along with 17 other family members by her brotherin-law. “My son had a dream about America,” Mykhalchuk says, half-smiling.

Adem knew little English before coming to the U.S.; she wasn’t able to go to school long enough as a kid to learn any.

Her husband, a scientist, works with other Ukrainians and is still hesitant to go to the grocery store alone for fear of conversation.

the time to educate.” Though the cafe is new and even Project Feast is only a few years old, Prasad is already thinking of how she might improve the next session of the apprentice program. The same thing that inspired her to start Project Feast guides her now: “Food is a good way to have a conversation.” When the whole team sits down to lunch together each day, most meals begin with a conversation about the food on the table. Sometimes it’s serious—how the eggplant stew reminds Prasad of baingan ka bharta, a smoky Indian dish—other times, it’s a joke about who will eat the most tacos. When Nakamura sets down the crepes she made that morning, Mykhalchuk’s eyes light up. “Blinchiki!” she exclaims. She uses Google to find the English word for poppy seeds, her filling of choice, and then goes on to describe how she cooked them in Ukraine: sweet cheese fillings for brunch, savory chicken and mushrooms in the evening, with a bright, creamy sauce on top, maybe some fruit inside for dessert. Like her borscht recipe, she specifies tiny differences that make them uniquely Ukrainian. The staff lunch at Ubuntu is a microcosm of the cross-cultural culinary discussion Prasad encourages on a larger scale with Project Feast. Ideally, she wants to bring people together over food both foreign and familiar at the cafe and through the organization’s evening events—potlucks and a dinner series called Migrating Meals. It’s a translation of culture through shared ritual, and that’s at its most obvious during Ubuntu’s family meal. Mykhalchuk smiles nostalgically at the memory of making blinchiki for her kids at the same stove she stirred the giant pot of borscht. “My favorite.” Naomi Tomky lives in Seattle, and has written for Saveur, Fodor’s, and Lucky Peach.

CINCINNATI, OH EAT

No matter how you approach it, Cincinnati is a stunning city—by air, iconic bridges stretch over the meandering rivers; by land, a curve in I-75 suddenly reveals an expansive sparkling skyline. Now, the new Southwest terminal at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport makes getting there even easier. Have a long layover? Check out exhibits from the history and natural science museums, which are on loan during an extensive renovation to their facilities in Union Terminal. Once you’re in the area, a vibrant energy is apparent. The people are cheerful, the buildings are adorned with colorful murals, the architecture has been lovingly preserved, and everyone seems to know one another. It’s remarkably cozy for a metro area of around 2 million people, where Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana meet and mingle. But don’t let the small-town vibe fool you—Cincinnati is a major city. Fine dining, entertainment, sports, history, tech startups, and a robust brewing and bourbon scene make this a don’t-miss destination. cincinnati usa.com july 2017 southwest 69

Brew City

Cincinnati is a beer city. The first commercial brewery appeared in 1812 in what became the German neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine, and by the late 1800s, the area was known as the “Beer Capital of the World” for being one of the top beer producers and consumers. Today, the region’s beer scene is thriving again with 40-plus craft breweries. This September, the long-awaited Brewery Heritage Trail premieres. This urban walking trail is accessible any time through an app providing photos, history, and augmented reality experiences. Guided audio tours will also be available. brewingheritagetrail.org

TAKE CONTROL OF HORMONAL HEALTH

A common health issue affecting women entering middle age is menopause. With this natural progression, uncomfortable symptoms may include headaches, anxiety, mood swings, weight gain, and hot flashes. As hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone decline, these symptoms may intensify and be accompanied by insomnia, diminished sex drive, fatigue, or incontinence. Many doctors treat these symptoms with synthetic hormones, which could have negative side effects such as potential heart disease, strokes, blood

clots, and breast cancer. Hotze Health & Wellness Center in Houston offers a more natural approach using bioidentical hormones. This method of treating menopause introduces hormones derived from a plant chemical—one often found in yams and soy— that are identical in molecular structure to the ones the body naturally produces. “When a woman is suffering from a hormonal imbalance, it affects much more than her reproductive organs,” says Steven F. Hotze, M.D. “It affects her mood, her energy, and her outlook on life, as well as her relationships.”

Combat the sedentary lifestyle at work.

WORK IT OUT

A sedentary lifestyle is a hazard of today’s working world. Many jobs require long hours in front of a screen, but studies have found that sitting for extended periods of time has a negative impact on your health. (Of course, too much time on your feet can lead to leg and back pain.) FlexiSpot, a leading brand focused on workplace wellness solutions, aims to solve these issues with ergonomic workstations that enable users to sit, stand, and move at intervals throughout the work day. Their innovative three-part system includes an ergonomic monitor mount to receive the optimal viewing positions, a height-adjustable table to transition between sitting and standing, and an under-desk bike that provides gentle exercise while you’re working. “Our passion for transforming all workspaces into healthier and more productive environments drives us to continue creating solutions that can work in every office situation,” says the company’s CEO Lane Xiang.

GET MOVING

In addition to regular exercise throughout the day, physical therapy can improve your overall health, fitness, and wellness. According to the California Physical Therapy Association, physical therapists can help manage and decrease pain, improve coordination and strength, restore your normal movement after injury, and return you to normal mobility levels through guided physical therapy. In some states, such as California, patients don’t need a primary care referral to see a physical therapist. Find a physical therapist at move california.org.

The gentle, non-irritating, patented formula eliminates rather than masks malodor, and the American Dental Association recently gave the Seal of Acceptance to both the unflavored and gentle mint rinses. “By taking care of the mouth, we are, in effect, doing a lot to help the body remain healthy,” says Andy Gritti, executive vice president of Rowpar Pharmaceuticals Inc., the company that manufacturers CloSYS. “The ADA Seal for helping to eliminate bad breath adds great credibility for customers seeking a gentle yet effective oral care solution they can use every day.”

Does Your Hand Shake When You… Drink a glass of water? Write a note? Dial a phone number? If so, you may have a condition known as essential tremor. Our team at the Swedish Radiosurgery Center has successfully treated hundreds of patients over the past five years — using Gamma Knife, a nonsurgical, FDA-approved approach to treat essential tremor.

DRAWING SAMPLE BEFORE TREATMENT

According to Christopher Loiselle, M.D., there are a variety of ways to treat ET.

DRAWING SAMPLE AFTER TREATMENT

Learn more about essential tremor and find out if Gamma Knife treatment is right for you. 1-206-320-7187 Swedish.org/essentialtremor Seattle, Washington, USA

CHECK IN

Do you have a tremor? In addition to a routine physical exam, make sure you’re discussing any tremor symptoms with your primary care physician. Swedish Radiosurgery Center suggests every patient have a conversation with their physician about essential tremor—also known as ET. The nervous system disorder, which has a strong hereditary component, is characterized by tremors in the arms and hands. More than 10 million Americans live with ET, making it the most common movement disorder in the U.S. “What’s important for people with tremors to know is that there is a wide range of treatment options available, including medical therapy, surgical options, and non-surgical options like Gamma Knife Radiosurgery,” says Christopher Loiselle, M.D. “We recommend patients talk to their primary care physicians and seek out additional information about the full range of treatment options.”

STIMULATE GROWTH

HairMax treatments take only 90 seconds.

Hair loss is often considered a male issue. However, one in four women will experience thinning hair during their lifetime. Hormonal changes due to childbirth, aging, and menopause can trigger hereditary hair loss, causing stress and anxiety. HairMax is an FDA-approved, non-drug laser treatment for thinning hair. HairMax’s director of marketing, Francesca Dubsky, says it’s best to be proactive about hair loss. “Once follicles have died, they cannot be brought back to life,” Dubsky says. “In women, hair can become very fine. The scalp shows through, the part gets wider, or ponytail thickness reduces. HairMax can reverse that thinning process. It awakens and revitalizes the follicle, stimulating it at the root, and gets that hair to grow in again—thicker, denser, and fuller.”

If you’re an adrenaline junkie, book a room close to the action and purchase an unlimited ride pass to experience favorites like the X-Scream, which propels you headfirst over the edge of the tower. After you’ve built up an appetite, head to Top of the

World, the hotel’s award-winning revolving restaurant. The surf and turf menu features specialties like lobster bisque, filet mignon, and crab cakes—all served alongside 360-degree views of the city. If you crave a Zen experience, stay at the newly renovated Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa. Following a multimilliondollar upgrade, the space now offers fitness and nutrition group classes, a full salon, and The Spa at Red Rock by Well & Being. Try restorative yoga, recharge with a healing acupuncture facial, or simply take an afternoon to lounge on the pool deck.

Horologio

TIMELESS CRAFTSMANSHIP

Located in the Grand Canal Shoppes, Horologio is a boutique retailer that specializes in limited-edition and custom-made timepieces. Here, store director Christine Sidoris talks craftsmanship, collections, and clientele. What are some of the brands Horologio carries? We carry 14 different high-end brands, ranging from Breitling to Omega. This year’s upcoming limited-edition Breitling is Chronomat in black steel with a carbon-fiber dial and crocodile-rubber strap with orange stitching. The sapphire crystal case back reads, “Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas.” Horologio is all about providing unique pieces, and we wanted to take a chance and do something exclusive to us, so this edition isn’t offered with any other retailer in the world.

Horologio hosts an annual trunk show. Who attends and what makes it special? We started the trunk shows two years ago, and each brand representative brings in the higher-end specialty pieces that aren’t in inventory. When we first started out, we decided to host it at the same time as a large car convention that comes to town every year. This brought in people who are watch enthusiasts and the timing—so to speak— worked well. It’s also open to the public, and we invite guests and people walking by to pop in and shop.

How do you keep the inventory exclusive and fresh? Each year, we attend Baselworld, a leading event for the watch and jewelry industry in Basel, Switzerland. All the international brands introduce their new selections, and we order out watches that deliver throughout the year. What’s the best place to unwind midshopping spree? We love CUT, which is a Wolfgang Puck steakhouse here at Grand Canal Shoppes. They designed a specialty menu for us, so we always send our VIP clients there for great service and a nice dining experience. My goto entrée is the Crab Louie salad or the ribeye.

The breakfast and lunch menu are what you’d expect from a traditional diner, aside from a few wacky exceptions—think a burger capped with cheddar cheese, peanut butter, and Red Hut sauce. If peanut butter isn’t your jam, you can’t go wrong with the local favorite: a waffle sandwich served with one egg and two pieces of bacon or sausage.

TALK OF THE TOWN: KURT BUSCH

The Daytona 500 winner and Las Vegas native talks about his Sin City roots, favorite hangouts, and why he recently returned to his old high school. What was it like to grow up in Vegas? I grew up on the west part of town in the Spring Valley area. When I was 16, I had a Volkswagen Beetle with a sunroof, and me and my boys would cruise the Strip. I had a need for speed, but my Bug only had 40 horsepower. I think that was my dad’s strategic way of keeping me out of trouble. What’s been the highlight of your career thus far? Winning the NASCAR championship in 2004 and winning the Daytona 500 this year was special, but it’s always nice to win any significant NASCAR race. I’m most thankful for the great people that I’ve worked with and the brainpower it takes to achieve success at this level. It’s an amazing feeling when it all comes together and you pull off big-time wins. You recently returned to your alma mater, Durango High School, to share your success. What was that like? Bringing home the Daytona 500 trophy to my high school was such a fantastic event—it felt like my 20-year class reunion. I walked into the gym and there was a big pep rally. I was blown away by the school spirit and all the banners of scholastic and athletic achievement the students have obtained over the years. Last question: Any hidden Las Vegas gems we should know about? I always hate telling people about Chicago Joe’s because it’ll be tougher to get a reservation, but it’s a small Italian restaurant that’s been run by a family for forever. I recommend the spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread— it’s to die for.

One Question

Jenny Slate,

what has showbiz taught you?

Jenny stars in Landline, a film exploring the bonds between family, out July 21.

PHOTOGRAPHY BY EMILY SHUR/AUGUST

One of the first big jobs I had was with Saturday Night Live and I got fired. It was embarrassing and sad, but it was also one of the best things that ever happened to me. If you fail publicly and label it as a failure, you set yourself up for humiliation. That’s fine if you feel the heat for a moment and use it to lift yourself up again, but you also have to realize that those labels are useless, and it’s a very unkind thing to do to yourself. Acceptance is absolutely wonderful, but rejection allows you to reorient and make sure your sense of self comes from within, rather than from whatever community you feel accepted or rejected by.
