ENJOY THE JOURNEY

          

    

 

22 bay

As I write this on a dazzling sun-warmed afternoon, I can see the sparkling waters of Tampa Bay under a cloudless sky. Already today, I have counted automobiles bearing license plates from Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Colorado and South Carolina. A friend who flew in from New York could hardly wait to trade his wool sweater and slacks for a T-shirt and shorts, or to devour the freshly caught shrimp that was our lunch. In December, we learned that Florida is second only to France in terms of the number of visitors from elsewhere. This issue of Bay has a story from Paris as well as reports from throughout the Sunshine State, and suggestions for your packing list from some professionals whose work frequently takes them out of the area. We explore the cuisines of other countries and how they shape our tastes at home. We offer suggestions for keepsakes that may help us remember a special visit. Nearly every journey taken can be entertaining, enlightening and a means of escaping routine. You never know what discoveries lie ahead. Happy new year, everyone. And happy trails. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mary Jane Park

BRIGHTLY NOTED Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and other social media keep us well-connected, and we also like paper. Boxed sets of postcards offer a world of varying images. Among other things, we are struck by the quality of reproduction. Use them as bookmarks and gift tags, for inspiration, for jotting messages tucked into loved onesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lunch boxes and travel bags. You can also tape them to mirrors and door frames or post them to friends in faraway places. We searched some of our favorite bookstores and museums to find some of these; all are available online. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mary Jane Park

COLORFUL CLAIMS Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot going on in these colorful leather luggage tags ($18.39 set of three, overstock. com). Handcrafted in India of cruelty-free leather, which means the skins come from animals that died of natural causes, each features a front flap with a plastic-covered card for contact information. At baggage claim, the bright green, orange and blue will set even the most drab bags apart. The artisan is represented by Worldstock Fair Trade, which helps small producers reach larger markets. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mary Jane Park Photographs by James Borchuck

IN THE BAG Some seasoned travelers share which items they wouldn’t leave home without. BY MARY JANE PARK ILLUSTRATION BY JACOB THOMAS

Whether for business or for pleasure, people who travel often usually develop routines that serve them well, even as they accumulate frequent-flier miles and hotel reward points. The late R.W. “Johnny” Apple Jr., a legendary New York Times correspondent, used to pack a small pepper mill with the thought that “a few turns of the machine” could enliven even awful food. Helen Ross, chief of correspondents for the PGA Tour, often is away from home for weeks at a time. Ballet-style slippers are a must for hotel use, she says. A corkscrew goes into her checked luggage, and her carry-on bag holds an iPad mini loaded with books and games. Present and past colleagues at the Tampa Bay Times have logged numerous miles by land and by air, and I turned to them for their expertise. Baseball writer Marc Topkin knows that weather delays and power outages can wreak havoc with the best-laid plans. He routinely packs an extra day’s clothing and medicine, plus an air card and a contact-list printout in case his smartphone malfunctions. His passport goes in the bag, too. “I have to have something to read, of course,” book editor Colette Bancroft said, “and increasingly I use my iPad to read while traveling. I have a digital subscription to the New Yorker and can catch up on that, and I often read digital galleys of upcoming books as well. I find e-readers much easier to read in the dim light of a plane than print books. “Another handy use for the iPad is a travel folder in Gmail where I put all my confirmations, tickets and receipts in one place, so I don’t have to hunt for them. “You can use a smartphone for the same things, of course,

I just don’t trust clockradios in hotels. I can never figure out how to set them, so I’m terrified I’ll oversleep. I take the simple, basic clock I use at home, and it never lets me down. ” JUDY STARK, freelance writer

but for any substantial amount of reading I prefer a bigger screen.” “This is my latest obsession when I travel,” Times food and travel edior Janet K. Keeler said. “Rollerball perfumes. I love to have my perfume with me, but the bottles are too big and fragile to pack. Rollerball perfumes stash easily and have a familiar scent that makes me feel put-together.” (Two she recently ordered: DOT by Marc Jacobs and Sugar Lemon from the Fresh line of scents.) “I always take earplugs, one of those flat, round rubber things you put over a sink or tub drain in case there’s no plug, and a lightweight but large scarf,” Times senior correspondent Susan Taylor Martin reported. “Also, Band-Aids, some stomach medicine and Advil.” Art critic Lennie Bennett never travels without her favorite moisturizing cleanser. “I always take a bar of Dove, which I have used since I can remember,” she says. “I find hotel soap is always drying and irritates my skin.” Judy Stark, a onetime writer and editor for the Times, has an encore career as a freelance writer and as a consultant for clergy and bishop searches in the Episcopal Church. Not surprisingly, her checklist includes the Book of Common Prayer. She also takes along a power strip. “Sometimes there are very few accessible outlets in a hotel room. This allows me to plug everything in and charge up easily.” Other basics: A zippered plastic bag with plenty of powdered coffee creamer, a fabric tote bag and a battery-powered alarm clock. “I just don’t trust clock-radios in hotels,” Stark said. “I can never figure out how to set them, so I’m terrified I’ll oversleep. I take the simple, basic clock I use at home, and it never lets me down. Freelance writer Bob Jenkins, a retired Times travel editor, says he carries bedroom slippers, a night-light to plug into the hotel bathroom socket and an eye mask and earplugs for sleeping on overnight flights and in hotel rooms. “This way I’m not woken up by the sunrise through curtains that don’t truly close or by the noise of other guest room doors banging shut,” he says. “If I’m going to Europe, I pack a washcloth — for some reason, not standard even in better hotels.” For me, it’s a cashmere or cashmere-and-silk pashmina, so light it barely registers on a scale. It is versatile enough to wear as a scarf, stole or wrap; efficiently warm in frosty summer air-conditioning and autumn breezes; and far superior to airline blankets. And when I’m on a long car trip, I take a small cooler and freezer packs. Fresh summer peaches and heirloom tomatoes don’t need refrigeration; barbecue is another story.

CHARMING REMINDERS

Like the stamps on her passport and the pushpins that mark the world map in her library, the charms my friend brings back from her favorite journeys recall icons such as the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, the Millau Viaduct, the Taj Mahal and the Golden Gate Bridge. Jean Hill Franklin was a collector, too. The longtime owner of Hill’s Travel Service in St. Petersburg (her father, Carroll “Pappy” Hill, was its founder) divided her many gold charms among her three daughters a few years ago. One Mother’s Day, she gave each woman a bracelet with a personalized charm and added reminders of some of the trips they took together. “We did all have the opportunity to travel with her quite a bit,” Joan Bailey said. Bailey owns the travel agency now, and her two sisters, Amy David and Chris Heironimus, both worked in the family business. Amy David’s bracelet has a gondola (all three women studied in Venice), a gold nugget from Wyoming, a replica

from the British Crown Jewels, an Indian elephant, a New Orleans gaslight, an aspen leaf and two Anasazi vessels. David, who lives in Amarillo, Texas, “would love to live in Santa Fe if she could,” Bailey said. A tiny Credit Suisse gold bar, an enameled Russian mandolin, a Portuguese rooster, a Viking longboat and a pine cone are among the treasures that adorn Heironimus’ heirloom. Bailey’s holds another bejeweled crown, an Alaskan mask, an Italian wine bottle, a Swiss cowbell and a cactus brought back from a business trip with their dad, Erskine Franklin, to Arizona, where she found a Mexican wedding dress for herself and similar embroidered garments for her attendants. The charms evoke memories. Bailey and her sisters, who wore their bracelets to their mother’s memorial in 2012, look for things that are intrinsic to the areas they visit. Each one of them tells a story. — Mary Jane Park

FLAVORS OF FAR AWAY BY COLETTE AND JOHN BANCROFT

The worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best varietal wines evoke a sense of place called terroir, a value compounded of terrain, weather, elevation and especially soils, in the vineyards where the grapes grow. Add to that the distinct styles of winemaking employed in various countries, and you have in your glass a vivid snapshot of the culture and geography that define a fine wineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s origin, armchair travel at its most sensually satisfying. For us, the global epicenter of fine wine production remains France, notably when it comes to the storied red wines of Bordeaux, its estates strung like pearls along the Left Bank of the Garonne River and the Right Bank of the Dordogne, where 2009 and 2010 were red-letter years. A lovely example is the 2009 Château PhĂŠlan SĂŠgur

SaintEstèphe, available at the moment in the $50 range, although that will go up as supplies dwindle. This sterling blend of cabernet sauvignon, merlot and cabernet franc will cellar well for another 12 years or so but is eminently drinkable now if allowed to breathe for two hours before pouring. Expect intense, dark mouth-filling flavors in an intricately balanced and flamboyant wine. Plum tart, black cherry and fig figure prominently, with grace notes ranging from black pepper through loamy earth to a hint of cedar. This wine opens in wave after wave of nuanced flavors that just keep going and going through a long, lingering finish. Superb. Argentina, too, produces some world-class wines, especially the meticulously crafted malbecs like the 2010 Catena Alta â&#x20AC;&#x153;Historic Rowsâ&#x20AC;? Malbec that hail from high, arid vineyards in the foothills of the Andes Mountains. This wine is produced by Bodega Catena Zapata, which was founded in 1902, from grapes grown only in carefully selected old vine rows within the larger estate. The result is a superbly concentrated and complex red that drinks well right now and will cellar for probably another 10 years. It sells for about $55, but as with the PhĂŠlan SĂŠgur, the price will rise as it gets more


scarce. The top note in this beauty is bracing bramble. You can almost smell the unsullied and vivifying dry mountain air. The dominant fruit is juicy ripe blackberry, enhanced by hints of anise, black pepper, mocha and just a smidge of cinnamon, especially on the nose. It is a richly layered mĂŠlange, elegant and rambunctious in almost equal parts. Australian winemaking may be said to be undergoing something of a midlife crisis in production of its signature shiraz reds, but that certainly doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean its wine country isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth visiting. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just that premium shirazes have been declining a bit in favor of trendier, cutely labeled down-market wines. Bucking that trend is the warm Barossa Valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Château Tanunda, whose 2006 Shiraz â&#x20AC;&#x153;Noble Baronâ&#x20AC;? is a knockout. It goes locally for about $50, but drink it now. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last much more than another year in the cellar. While still at its peak, expect ripe dark fruits and lively spice in a mature and lushly textured wine. Its secondary malolactic fermentation in French oak, followed by two years of aging in oak hogsheads and, finally, another year in the bottle before release, all show to fine advantage. Age becomes this wine.

PARIS Springtime is supposed to be so lovely in Paris. So why do I keep ending up here when the required attire is coat, hat, gloves and umbrella? Cole Porter wrote about drizzling winter weather, but let me tell you, it’s also like that in late fall. Temperatures can be frigid, too. I know because I’ve traversed the city twice at this time of year, the most recent last November. No matter; Paris is beautiful any time of the year. This is a city to be devoured, from the world-class museums to the unique and stylish shops. And then there are the bistros, where you can eat creamy foie gras and macarons the size of American hamburgers until your waistband tells you to stop. Even the people-watching is extraordinary. How can this many people be so stylish? A cold-weather visit reveals some of the coolest boots you’ll ever see. We walk off calories by strolling the Champs-Élysées, all the way to the Arc de Triomphe from the five-star Park Hyatt Vendome, just a block from the Ritz, which is closed and undergoing a massive renovation. (Yes, we walk around back to look for the revolving door through

which Diana and Dodi Fayad exited the hotel that fateful 1997 night.) Another day, we tromp the leafless Tuileries Garden to the Louvre. The Mona Lisa is waiting for us there. And we get to know the path to the city’s big department stores, Au Printemps and Galeries Lafayette. Floor after floor of fashion keep us occupied and moving. (Both have rooftop restaurants with gorgeous views of the city.) When we check into our Park Hyatt suite, the bellhop tells us we have one of only two rooms with views of the Eiffel Tower. To see the city landmark, which glitters seductively at night, we must crawl out a window that doesn’t open fully. Ah, there it is, shining above the Victorian rooftops. Worth the gyrations. A room with an Eiffel Tower view is no small thing. After two nights at the Hyatt, we move on to the Pavillion de la Reine in the Marais district. We are not far from the Bastille monument and right on the Place des Vosges, a lovely square that dates to 1612. Staying here gives us another vantage point of the city. We are farther from the city’s prime tourist spots but a little closer to real-people neighborhoods. The boutique Pavillion is cozy, especially in the community rooms where an honor bar holds every spirit imaginable. Plenty of wine choices, too. But it’s the hot chocolate in the afternoon that nourishes us. After a very long walk to the Père Lachaise Cemetery where we visit Jim Morrison, Marcel Proust (darn, why didn’t we bring Madeleine cookies to place on his grave?) and Edith Piaf, only a cup of creamy chocolat can soothe us. We actually put our feet up on an ottoman near the fire. It feels like we are home. Each day we leave the hotel, we pass a row of art galleries, and I am drawn to a large sculpture of a ballerina in joyous movement. Her tutu orbits around her lower body, and I wonder how I can get her home. Alas, she remains in Paris; perhaps I’ll see her next time.

Guests get a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower and additional Paris architecture from a suite in the Park Hyatt Vendome, a 5-star hotel within walking distance of some of Paris’ most cherished landmarks, including the Champs-Élysées and the Tuileries Garden. It is on the fashionable Rue de la Paix and surrounded by many designer stores, including Cartier and Tiffany. Hotel Pavillon de la Reine, right, is in the Marais section of Paris, home to many quirky and unique boutiques. It is on the Place des Vosges, considered to be one of the loveliest parks in the city.

Bronze sculptures by Roseline Granet double as sconces and door hardware in the rooms at the Park Hyatt Vendome. On a cold winter day, you can sit in the library and order tea or hot chocolate, or pour yourself even something stronger from the honor bar. A roaring fire in the late afternoon also is comforting.

Our most glorious outing is to the La Sainte-Chapelle, near Notre-Dame. Before I left the States, I saw that a string ensemble would be performing Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in the Gothic church while we are in Paris. A helpful concierge secures our tickets, and I have to help our cab driver find the place. “You know the city better than I do,” he says, when I suggest that he not drop us at Notre-Dame but keep going so we are a little closer. Well, I have been staring at the map for a while. And it is cold. Like in the 40s cold, with a steady wind. It almost seems colder inside the impressive chapel, the ancient walls doing nothing to keep the chill away. Strangers in the audience huddle together as we wait for the music to start. I think about the moment. It is clear it will not happen again. This music, this place, this experience. Violin soloist Frédéric Moreau joins the Les Violins de France for the performance. It is a magical evening, the music transporting us, though never letting us forget the weather. Even the musicians are blowing on their hands to keep them from becoming too stiff to play. Afterward, we find a bistro across the street and another cup of chocolat, this time, towering with whipped cream. In two days’ time, we will be flying toward Tampa. For now, we walk to Notre-Dame to sit on the bleachers in front of the cathedral and gaze at glory. And there is more people-watching. Even in the dark.

STAYING IN PARIS Park Hyatt Vendome, 5 Rue de la Paix, is a five-star hotel located in the 2nd arrondissement and near some of the city’s most exclusive designer shops. It is walking distance to many city landmarks, including the Tuileries Garden that leads to the Louvre. Rooms start at about $850 in winter, but fluctuate throughout the year. Information at paris.vendome.hyatt.com. Pavillion de la Reine, 28 Place des Vosges, is a boutique hotel in the Marais section of Paris. It is set back from the street, separated from the historic Place des Vosges square by a lovely courtyard. Rooms start at about $500 in winter, but fluctuate throughout the year.

dwelling Harbor Oaks’ wide, quiet streets, breathtaking water views and other features are as appealing today as they were 100 years ago when the neighborhood was developed.

Modern developers love to talk about the features they’ve incorporated into their newest residential project: Walkable neighborhoods. Community gathering places. Native plants and lots of trees. Environmentally sensitive buildings that catch the breeze and deflect the sun. Underground utilities. Deed restrictions. Decorative entry features. Ornamental lighting. Gracious homes in a variety of architectural styles. One hundred years ago, a developer was offering buyers those very same things. Is there anything new under the Florida sun? The neighborhood in question was Harbor Oaks, a leafy enclave overlooking Clearwater Harbor. In a pattern that would be repeated over and over across the state, it was created by a Yankee who came here, fell in love with the water, the weather, the welcome, and decided he could persuade others — wealthy Northerners whose names or businesses were household words — to buy and build here. Today, this tiny neighborhood — much smaller than Tampa’s Hyde Park or St. Petersburg’s Old Northeast — remains a draw for those who love its older homes, its wide, quiet streets, the breathtaking views over the water from the Belleair Causeway to the Carlouel Yacht Club, visible from the community dock at the end of Magnolia Drive, the sense of privacy and exclusivity. “It’s nice to see people walk through the neighborhood and stop to read the marker” recounting the neighborhood’s history, says Peggy Mateer, a sales agent with Coldwell Banker in Belleair Bluffs who has sold many homes in Harbor Oaks. “It’s nice to know that the neighborhood is preserved and appreciated.”


Bill and Gail Ruggie live in this home on Druid Road that was built in 1923 by former Clearwater Mayor Frank Booth, and sold in 1949 to Chester and Ruth McMullen. The Ruggies bought it at auction from the McMullen family in 1980 â&#x20AC;&#x153;for $117,500, which was $500 more than we expected,â&#x20AC;? says Bill, a longtime insurance executive.

IT WAS 1913 WHEN DEVELOPER DEAN ALVORD bought a 55-acre parcel, a former orange grove, from Edwin H. Coachman. He had successfully developed residential projects in Prospect Park South in Brooklyn, N.Y., and on Long Island, and had come to Florida to advise his friend Henry B. Plant on housing developments in Miami. He named the project Harbor Oaks, a nod to its location on a bluff overlooking Clearwater Harbor and to the lush trees that provide cooling shade to this day. The list of buyers he and his son Donald were able to attract reads like a Who’s Who of the rich and famous — Studebaker, Procter, Swift, Bucknell, Ebbett, Roebling — as well as prominent local figures whose names are Tampa Bay legends: McMullen and Booth, for starters. Their homes represent a wide variety of architectural styles. Some of them are what we think of as “Northern houses”: Shingle style, Colonial revival, French provincial. Others reflect the styles developed in Florida: Spanish Mediterranean and bungalow. One of those Spanish-style houses was the estate built by Jack Mohler Studebaker III — yes, that Studebaker family. Now it is the home of Dr. Gary Dworkin, a cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon and co-author, with Tom Adamich, of Clearwater’s Harbor Oaks (Arcadia Publishing, $21.99). He fell in love with Spanish-style architecture when he visited Miami Beach with his parents as a boy, and it has become his passion as an adult. Dworkin wrote the book, he says, to pique interest in Harbor Oaks when property values there had taken a hit from the recession, to commemorate the centennial of the neighborhood’s founding and to tell the neighborhood’s story. “No one else was going to write it,” he said. The book took far more time than he ever imagined, and “the research was painstaking.” It is full of historical photographs of Harbor Oaks from the first days of land development (when the neighborhood “looks more like a battleground than a development,” one photo caption observes) to the mid 1920s, when fine homes surrounded by beautiful landscaping (a mix of North and South: non-native evergreens stood beside Queen palms) stretched out on double lots and residents strolled on sidewalks or on brick streets. These vintage homes incorporated the features we find so contemporary today. Screened porches “allowed homeowners to enjoy the tropical breezes blowing off nearby Clearwater Bay without being subjected to Florida’s insect

population or its occasional humidity-induced rains,” Dworkin writes. (The Alvords retained as much of the native greenery as possible and deliberately incorporated green space into their land plan.) The homes used sunrooms, balconies and awnings to deflect the sun from interior rooms and to provide finishing touches to basic designs.

BOOKENDED BY MORTON PLANT HOSPITAL on the south and downtown Clearwater on the north, Harbor Oaks long attracted two groups of home buyers: physicians and others affiliated with the hospital, and executives from downtown businesses. In the 1950s some of the big homesites were subdivided, and now a smaller, more modern-looking home may stand beside one of the grand houses of yesteryear. The living spaces above the older homes’ detached garages — once the servants’ quarters — may now be guest accommodations or a home for boomerang children. It takes “a special kind of buyer to live in Harbor Oaks,” Peggy Mateer, the sales agent, says. “It’s hard to find houses that pass the ‘marble test’ ” — when you roll a marble across the floor, it keeps going because the floor isn’t perfectly level. “The houses all have long histories, and they have problems that you don’t ever overcome, but ignore,” such as small closets and old-fashioned bathrooms. “A lot of people ooh and aah and want to look, but when it comes right down to it, they have to have the Florida footprint: big open-floor plans, more modern bathrooms.” Bill and Gail Ruggie live in a home on Druid Road built in 1923 by former Clearwater Mayor Frank Booth and sold in 1949 to Chester and Ruth McMullen. The Ruggies bought it at auction from the McMullen family in 1980 “for $117,500, which was $500 more than we expected,” says Bill, a longtime insurance executive. At that time the house had “pea-green indoor-outdoor carpeting on the front walk,” Bill recalled. “You couldn’t sell the house; you sold the history.” Over the years they “put it back like in the old pictures,” and made some interior changes to reflect contemporary living. The original back porch is now a kitchen addition and a family room. The house provides a backdrop for their own antiques (they have accumulated many art prints by Louis Icart) and Bill’s extensive collection of cowboy memorabilia. Oh, and it does have its very own ghost. Mateer says she was told years ago by Gail Ruggie that “he’s very friendly; we like him, and he likes us.”

JOHN AND TRUDY COOPER LIVE IN A HOME built in 1919 on Druid Road W that they bought 13 years ago from the Heye family. (If you’ve been to Ruth Eckerd Hall, you’ve noticed the Margaret Heye Great Room.) John, who grew up in Clearwater, recalls walking through Harbor Oaks, “and I would really covet these homes.” Keeping as much of its original beauty as possible, they’ve made some changes to tailor the house to their needs. A sitting room, once an open-air courtyard, has been enclosed with French doors. A choppy galley kitchen/butler’s pantry is now a big kitchen. (That’s appropriate for a couple deeply involved in the restaurant business: John retired recently as president of Bonefish Grill; Trudy is one of the founders of the Outback chain and is still an officer with the company.) The chauffeur’s quarters over the garage are now a guest suite for Trudy’s mother. The house is full of charming quirks: the “Prohibition cellar,” hidden under the pantry floor, to store liquor during those bad old days; the steep servants’ back staircase. And the not-so-charming: During one hurricane, they spent six hours mopping up rain that blew in sideways, using every towel in the house. There’s a chronic water intrusion problem on the western exposure that John is determined to resolve. Their favorite feature is the view over the harbor from the second-floor catwalk, what Trudy calls “the real jewel.” She says, “I love to experience the weather; we’re open to the ocean, you can see it coming across the water.”

“LOCAL NEWSPAPERS CALLED HARBOR OAKS ‘the Riviera of the Sunny South’ and ‘the finest shore development on the West coast of Florida,’ ” says a plaque identifying Harbor Oaks as a historic district that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988. Even allowing for the hype of the Boom Era, when everything in Florida was the best, the highest, the most, the greatest, it is not hard to see why this enclave appealed to the rich and famous. It was not a gated community, but the elaborate pillars at the entrance to the neighborhood along S Fort Harrison Avenue let passersby know they were entering a “sophisticated urban neighborhood,” Dworkin writes — a place of ease and exclusivity, rest and relaxation. The sunsets over the Gulf of Mexico must have been just as appealing to the residents of the 1920s as they are to residents today. On Christmas Eve, all the homes put out luminarias supplied by the homeowners’ association, “and it’s a really lovely sight,” says Mary Ann McArthur, also a sales agent at Coldwell Banker Belleair Bluffs who lived in the neighborhood for 35 years. “The wonderful thing about Harbor Oaks is that it stays the same.”

The new Jaguar F- Type convertible sports car doesn’t try to imitate its predecessor but invokes the spirit of the beloved E-Type as it offers up dramatic new styling all its own.

FLAIR FOR THE DRAMATIC BY PETER COUTURE

How do you replace an automotive icon? If the car in question is Jaguar’s much-loved E-Type, the epitome of 1960s cool, then you wisely don’t try. Now that Jaguar has built its first proper sports car in decades, the F-Type, there’s a sigh of relief that the British carmaker didn’t try to imitate the E-Type, a design so respected that one sits in the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art. Care to start an argument among automobile devotees? Let it be known that you consider the E-Type is the most beautiful car ever made. For the new car’s design, Jaguar invoked the spirit of the E-Type without trying to imitate the sleek, sensuous speedster. Retro styling cues do show up in the new car, such as the “clamshell” hood and short trunk. Hood bulge and hood vents? Check and check. Then there are the shark-gill vents that frame the low, black-mesh grill. Above them, the headlights sweep back along the fender arc and are underscored by LED accents. The sheet metal curves up along the wheel wells of the wider rear end. Very sexy. “We’ve played every card that we can play to really amp up the drama in this car,” Wayne

Burgess, lead designer of the F-Type, told Forbes last year. Sadly, for purists, there’s no manual transmission, but the 8-speed QuickShift transmission — with paddles, of course — lives up to its name. Back to Burgess’ point: There is drama to spare, especially if you choose the F-type V8 S, above, which produces 495 untamed horses and 460 pound-feet of torque. That power moves a relatively lightweight car, about 3,600 pounds for the V8. When you step on the gas, the result is nothing short of visceral: Zero to 60 comes in 4.2 seconds, and twice that speed seems to take only a few more ticks. We suggest putting the top down; it takes but 12 seconds. Oh, and engage the Active Exhaust. You’ll thank us. That’s because the system, which uses bypass valves, may be one of the roughest and most menacing car sounds we’ve heard: more American muscle car than anything with refined British manners. It’s pure aural theater, and you’ll love it.

The F-Type’s leather-appointed cabin, at top, borders on simple; this Jag is all about the driving experience. Even the interior’s most striking feature — an active center vent — is designed to reduce clutter: When the climate control is turned on, it rises from the dash. Above, the Fires and Orange Metallic is an attention-getter.

A visit to the grand park and preserve in Alaska promises stunning vistas throughout its 6 million acres, including majestic Mount McKinley.

THE MOUNTAIN CALLS PHOTOGRAPHS BY EDMUND D. FOUNTAIN

TEXT BY MARY JANE PARK

Guides call it “flightseeing,” possibly the ideal way to view Alaska’s Denali National Park and Preserve and its crown jewel, Mount McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America. Even cruise ships offer helicopter tours of the 6-million-acre destination. Take a tour bus along the road that divides the park, and you’ll see stunning naturescapes and wildlife. Above the clouds, there’s a broader glimpse of the spectacular scenery and majestic views. Naturalist Charles Sheldon, who first traveled to the area in the early 1900s, proposed the idea for a national park at Denali, a term used by the Athabaskan Indians to mean “The High One” or “The Great One.” Mount McKinley, named for the nation’s 25th president and a destination for adventure travelers from throughout the world, also is known as Denali. Summertime, when daylight hours are extensive and temperatures are milder, is the most popular season for visitors, although clouds and wet weather can mean only occasional views of the great granite formation’s highest peak. The aurora borealis — also called northern lights — is more visible in winter, when the nights are long and the skies often more clear.


Denali National Park and Preserve is home to Mount McKinley, also known as Denali, an Athabaskan Indian expression meaning “The High One” or “The Great One.” It has two prominent summits. Measuring at more than 20,000 feet, it is the highest peak in North America. These aerial photographs were taken in July.


In late spring, the land on Denali transitions from brown to green in a matter of days. Access to the park is easiest in summer, when these photographs were taken. In early August, tundra plants at high elevations change color first, from lush green to fiery oranges, red and yellows. By September, the mountains are brown again, if not covered in fresh snow.


Permanent accumulations of snow and ice known as snow fields cover Denaliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper half and feed a number of Alaskan glaciers.

Sunlight illuminates Denali National Park and Preserve, where summer days can extend beyond 20 hours of daylight and animals are at their most active stages. Several hundred climbers reach Mount McKinleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peak each year, many hoping to accomplish the Seven Summits challenge, which is to reach the peak of the highest mountain in each of the seven continents.

A coniferous forest in Denaliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taiga supports a broad range of animals. Clouds and frequent changes in weather can obscure even large mountains, and visibility is often less than ideal in summer, when conditions are wetter than during the rest of the year.

POLISHING THE PAST A couple’s passion for restoring midcentury furniture has grown into a thriving business. Their showroom has expanded to three floors of a historic building.

Todd Wilson’s father owned a retail store in upstate New York during the 1970s that was among the first in the area to rent furniture. Jackie Williams’ mother couldn’t get enough of thrift stores and estate sales. Neither expected to follow in their parents’ footsteps. So of course that’s exactly what happened. Wilson and Williams met while working at an upscale restaurant during their first year of college in New York. He became a videographer. She became a graphic designer. The couple moved to Florida more than four years ago and now own a lavishly midcentury modern furniture store called Furnish Me Vintage in the historic pink building that was once home to the Gas Plant Antique Arcade on the corner of Central Avenue and 13th Street in St. Petersburg. “We couldn’t escape our fate,” Williams says, laughing. “His parents are avid antiquers, and I grew up with my mom dragging me to every garage sale. So I dreaded those kinds of

things. Both of us kind of rejected that. Then, lo and behold, we buy a house and turn into our parents.” Furnish Me Vintage specializes in restoring all types of furniture from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. Walking through the showroom, which could easily be mistaken for the set of a Mad Men episode, you would never know that many of the mint-condition pieces arrived in a state of disrepair. Wilson and Williams have even applied their interest in restoration to the building in which they work. After spending two years on the third floor, Furnish Me Vintage recently expanded to the first and second floors. With newly painted walls, refinished floors, additional lighting and new carpets, the former antique mall looks nearly as fresh as the furnishings inside. Wilson and Williams recently sat down with Bay magazine to talk about how their work became their passion. How did you get into the furniture business? Wilson: “We purchased a home and had a hard time finding cool, interesting and well-made furniture. I’ve always been handy, so I started buying and fixing stuff up. We started to buy more unique pieces at antique stores and garage sales. I’d buy more than we needed, we’d swap things out, and before you know it, I’m selling stuff out of my garage. This is the great American garage business dream come true. That was only about four years ago.” Williams: “We still have customers now who used to buy out of our garage. We originally had a small store on the far end of Central (Avenue), near (South) Pasadena, and they were with us then. It’s amazing to see that customers have stayed with us along the way.”

They specialize in â&#x20AC;&#x153;furniture rehab,â&#x20AC;? taking on unique pieces that may have been damaged or broken and restoring them to full glory.

What makes Furnish Me Vintage different? Williams: “All our items are ready to go into your home. Whether it’s in excellent original condition or has been restored or refinished, you’re not going to get a project piece from us. You’re not going to get a piece that you need to worry about. A lot of times people come in and ask us if these are new pieces. But we really aren’t pick-and-flip.” Wilson: “The difference is that we’re selling pieces for the same prices that you’d find on eBay or in some cases for the same prices you’d find people selling pieces out of their garage on Craigslist. Except our pieces are all redone. We have everything here to do the restoration in-house on a massive scale. We’re constantly fixing things every single day. Williams: “You can also furnish your entire home with our store. There are few places in the country where you can go and choose from six different 1960s Danish dining sets or have a

selection of 12 different midcentury couches and do your entire home in one place. We’re essentially a department store from the ’60s. We range from 1950s through the 1970s. But you can come here and get your art, get your lighting and choose from many items at once instead of spending a year hopscotching around the country to find a piece here and a piece there.” Wilson: “Or paying for shipping from someplace out of state. Although we do ship a lot of items, we also have a tremendous local following. I think people are really starting to appreciate the fact that we’re here, and they don’t have to find these things from some dealer in Los Angeles.” Williams: “We also get a lot of regional business with people driving in from Gainesville, Jacksonville and South Florida, because we are so unique. I think the next place that’s even comparable to us is in Atlanta. From there, you have to

jump either to California, New York or Chicago. Then we have people who follow us online, come here for vacation and Disney World. St. Pete Beach and Furnish Me Vintage are on their list of destinations.” Does it feel good to rescue furniture that might otherwise end up in a landfill? Williams: “Sometimes I’ll go out on whim and buy something that’s really beat up, but I can tell that it’s got the bones. And I’ll come in kind of scared that my husband’s going to be like, ‘What did you bring this here for?’ Because he does all the refinishing, and I know it’s going to be 20 hours of work for him. But then I’ll walk in the workshop three days later and see the total transformation. I find myself saying, ‘This piece is lucky it came here.’ It is tremendous what we can do in a week to a piece of furniture that looked like junk.” Wilson: “On certain things, I know the margins are going to be terrible after I put all my work and overhead into it. But some pieces are flagship pieces. I just want to have them, and I want them to be here. I do sort of have this rescue mentality. A lot of roughed-up pieces end up in kids’ bedrooms or college dorm rooms where they’re just going to get even more used and abused. But if you can get them refinished back to the original state, they are going to be in a house where they are pampered, loved and passed on. A lot of these pieces have been around for 50 or 60 years, and they can last another 50 or 60 years if you take care of them. It does make me feel good when I think about how many pieces we’ve saved from ending up in the garbage.” Williams: “A lot of this furniture is from the last vestige of great American manufacturing. It’s nice to be able to preserve that and show people, ‘Look what we made.’ ” Wilson: “These pieces were built so well that they are almost better than money. They’re practical and useful. They have a value that’s different from diamonds and gold, because people will always need a place to sit. You always will need furniture. There’s a real value that carries on. When you think about how many things we buy now that are worth nothing a week after you get home, it’s a cool thing. I tell people there’s really no gamble because if you put this in your home and five years from now you don’t want it, you can probably sell it for the same amount you paid for it here.” How is the store doing? Wilson: “Very well. When we started, the majority of business came from out of state. We were shipping more than we were selling locally. But now the scales have tipped, and we’re seeing a much larger local presence.” Williams: “We have an extremely strong Web presence, locally and nationally. If you Google ‘midcentury modern,’ within the first few clicks — if not the first click — you’re going to hit something from Furnish Me Vintage. That’s not by accident. We photograph a lot of our product and place it on our site. From there it might be replicated on eBay and Etsy. We get picked up a lot on Pinterest, Twitter and Facebook. We work just as hard

every day on maintaining that and keeping it fresh as we do on our showroom. Even local people find us online.”

FURNISH ME VINTAGE

How do you decide what pieces you want to buy and restore? Williams: “Our store is a direct reflection of our taste because we do select everything ourselves. Todd and I meet on a lot of things, but he definitely has more of a …” Wilson: “I’m a visionary!” Williams: “Yeah, he thinks he’s a visionary. I call it tacky. (Laughs) He’s more Austin Powers, I’m more James Bond. I like the sleek, designer pieces. Todd likes the funky stuff. He’s the one who will go for a velvet couch or a rhinestone-studded swag lamp. Sometimes I shake my head, but I know that’s him, and I do like having the variety. I’ll agree to the kitsch as long as it’s well done. As long as it turns that corner where it’s so kitschy that it’s awesome. So our selection ranges from the Herman Miller kind of look to the funky thing you might like in your man cave.”

1246 Central Ave., St. Petersburg

What do you enjoy most about this business? Wilson: “I had a guy come in the other day and he said, ‘This is the coolest store I’ve ever been in.’ That’s it. I could have the worst day, but when somebody says that it means the world to me.” Williams: “Because this is so specialized, we meet so many people who share that interest and are so excited that we’re here. It just feels good to be able to do something well enough to strike that kind of reaction from people who share the same passion.” Do you ever get so attached to a piece that it’s hard to let it go? Wilson: “Yes. I have one upstairs right now. It’s a console stereo from the ’70s. It’s been in my house, but it’s so big that I just don’t have room for it. It breaks my heart to have to sell it.” Williams: “I’m very proud of him right now that he’s able to let it go. At one point people kept touching it in the store and it was upsetting him and it got taken back home.”

GOOD IDEAS BREWING The 3 Daughters Brewery in St. Petersburg comes to fruition in part out of the proprietor’s focus on his family. Expansion plans include child-friendly options and activities.

BY PAUL WALLEN

Five years ago, Mike Harting was driving south on U.S. 27 with not much to look at and plenty of time to think. Somewhere south of Sebring he had a revelation and called his wife, Leigh, who was pregnant at the time with the couple’s youngest daughter, Madison. “I told her, ‘You know what, I’m not having fun doing this anymore,’ ” recalls Harting, who was managing 18 restaurants from Tampa Bay to Key West as a joint-venture partner for Outback Steakhouse. “She just said, ‘Come home, we’ll figure out something else.’ So I literally turned the car around and went home.” For Harting, 44, home has always been where the family is. He was born in Walter Reed Army Hospital in Washington, D.C., and grew up as an Army brat, moving every few years with his parents, Bruce and Pat, and younger sister Becky. He is spending considerably less time on the road these days. After leaving Outback, he became partners with Robert Sanderson and Dyce Craig at BellaBrava restaurant in St. Petersburg, which recently expanded to add more seating at its Beach Drive location. He lives just a mile away from Becky, whose husband is kitchen manager at the restaurant, and he rel-

ishes the extra time with Leigh and their three girls. So it’s no surprise that Harting’s newest venture, a 30barrel production brewery in downtown St. Petersburg, is called 3 Daughters. Three sets of small handprints in the tasting room bar are a constant reminder of the Hartings’ children and the brewery’s namesakes: Meadow, 11; Livvi, 9; and Madison, 5. And he plans to make 3 Daughters Brewery a true family affair by brewing root beer for the tasting room and expanding on child-friendly options like such as 18-hole miniature golf and pingpong. Architects began working on the brewery’s new facility on 22nd Street S last March, ground was broken in July, and the building was completed in November. Doors opened in December, and business has now completed the transition from construction to operations. Harting leaned back in one of the oversized leather chairs in his spacious new tasting room recently to answer a few questions for Bay magazine. Why did you decide to name the business after your three daughters? “It actually came from the goals that my wife and I talked about for our family. We wanted three kids, and I wanted to go off and do something different. And she set the parameters that once we were established, ‘once we have the family unit the way we want it, go do whatever you want.’ So I thought it appropriate to name it after them.”

3 DAUGHTERS BREWERY

It sounds like family is very important to you? “That’s it. It all revolves around family. I’m going to leave here and go have lunch with my two older ones later. That’s my hobby; that’s everything I enjoy.”

(727) 826-0904

Did all the moving around when you were younger shape who you are today in any way? “I think it made it much easier for me to meet new people, walking around the restaurant and talking to people, especially. Every two to three years, Becky and I would need to make a whole new group of friends. The first day of school was not, ‘Hey, what did you do this summer?’ It was ‘Hi, my name is Mike.’ So I think we got real used to that after a while.” When did you first have the idea to open a new brewery? “Ty Weaver is our chef. He came with me from Outback, and I’ve known him for more than a decade. We put out four new menus a year at the restaurant and we were having a conversation about other things we could do to freshen up the menu. Ty has always been a home brewer, so I asked if he could make the beer batter for our beer-battered fish, an entree we serve at lunch. We had just been using one of the beers on tap. He said, ‘I don’t see why not.’ It was a fun story for the servers to tell, and it just grew over the next month. Finally I asked him, ‘Do you

think we could put it on tap here?’ It took us about three or four months to go through the licensing. The restaurant’s kitchen is very small, so they brew from about 2 o’clock in the morning until about 6:30 a.m. And I thought it would be neat for the restaurant, neat for Ty, we’ll just brew once a month and put it on tap. Now we brew two to three times per week, and it’s our biggest seller in the beer category. That became part of the conversation of whether we should build another restaurant. Do we build another BellaBrava, do we build another concept here? It finally became, ‘Let’s build a little tasting room right near BellaBrava.’ And then it just grew into this.” Why did you choose a brewery over opening a new restaurant? “I think that one day we will open another restaurant, I think that’s still in the future somewhere. But as we were talking, we thought about how we had never ventured out of the hospitality industry, casual dining. Truthfully, we weren’t thinking of anything near this in the beginning. ” Did the growing craft-beer market play into the decision as well? “Absolutely. And I don’t think it’s so much the flavor of the day. Three years ago, InBev came along and bought Budweiser, and they really took the restraints off the distributors. Before that, there was no sense in building a craft brewery because all the big guys couldn’t distribute your beer. Once that became an option, the industry took off. There’s a lot more to go, I don’t think it’s something that’s going to fade. I feel it’s on a trend that’s going to continue and sustain itself.” How did the tasting room fit into your strategy? “There were a couple things we wanted. First and foremost, we wanted people to have conversations here. So there are no TVs. Never will be. We wanted it to be a place for folks to gather and

hang out with each other. We tried to make it very family-friendly, so all the games came out of that idea. We’ll end up with a movie screen, and we’ll put on live bands and food trucks here in the next month. But the experience we were looking for was making it a destination where people could become part of the brewing process and taste what Ty created today. It’s not just drinking a nationally known brand in a different bar, but tasting what the artist here made. So even if, in some ways, it looks like a bar, we’re looking for more of a traditional tasting room.” Tell me more about the your plans for entertainment and family-friendly features. “We have pingpong, shuffleboard and Jenga. We’re building two long chess board tables, with five chess boards each. Then we’ll work our way backwards toward things that are more kidfriendly. We’re going to brew our own root beer and put it on tap.

And then I want to find more games that will help keep children interacting with their parents.” Why did you choose this location? “First and foremost was how the city has developed their idea of where they want beer to be brewed. We are a full-fledged brewery. Only a year ago, the city didn’t have a way in the zoning to discern where to put breweries. In developing this thought process, they divided it into three categories: a brew pub, a micro-brewery and a brewery. With the brewery being the biggest of what they’re going to allow, they actually consider it to be manufacturing. So our choice of where to be was either right here or out by Feather Sound Country Club, around 128th Street. So there weren’t a lot of choices. From there, we wanted to find at least 10,000 square feet so we could expand, and we needed 20- to 25-foot ceilings. So those three factors together narrowed things down.”


How did you decide what styles of beer to produce? “We really wanted to create a beer with mass appeal, which I think our Beach Blonde Ale is. With the other two that go out in kegs to our retailers, we wanted to create things that there were a need for in the community. There wasn’t a great stout that was produced regionally, so we went with that. That left us with one more because we wanted to put out three. And even though IPAs (India Pale Ales) are the hot trend right now, we elected to go with a Dunkel. It’s a light beer, about as light as you’ll find in Germany. Then in the tasting room, we wanted to fill in some gaps — just in the tasting room — so we added a pale ale, an IPA and a Porter. Now that we have those filled, the rest is going to be up to Ty and his creativity. We have nine beers on tap here, so as we get to the other five tap handles, he’ll be able to make some one-offs that you probably would never buy in a grocery store, but you would definitely want to try while you’re here.” Which one is your personal favorite? “I love Guinness. For now, we took the Porter and ran it through one nitrogen tap handle, and it’s absolutely delicious. It’s a little higher in alcohol content, so I’m limited to one. But that’s by far my favorite right now.” What do you think will make 3 Daughters unique in the craft beer market? “Home-field advantage counts for an awful lot. I always say,

getting a tap handle in the community is easy … getting them to order the second keg is the true challenge. It’s neat to invite restaurateurs in and say, ‘You know that beer you’re serving? Come see where it’s made.’ I also think that Ty has an incredible gift, and the beer has been very well-received so far. Truthfully, I think this is what he was born to do. So I’m tickled purple with my partnership with him.”

The annual Art Basel international art show attracts a who’s who of luminaries to Miami Beach for the enormous winter event.

THE ART OF THE MATTER Warm, chic and expansive, the 12th edition of Art Basel in Miami Beach in December had enough star power to light up more than a few private airstrips. Leonardo DiCaprio was there, and Pharrell Williams. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Demi Moore and Uma Thurman. And about 70,000 additional visitors from throughout the world. A new showplace, the Pérez Art Museum Miami, which focuses on contemporary art, opened, and the wait times varied up to two hours for entry. Numerous parties were “not related to art but with tie-ins to luxury brands, alcohol sponsors, fashion labels and boutiques,” the New York Times reported. “It’s this hybrid phenomenon where culture meets commerce and celebration,” fair director Marc Spiegler told the Times. There was art in the Miami Beach Convention Center, of course; the show represents more than 250 galleries. Jeff Koons’ Baroque Egg With Bow (Turquoise/Magenta) sold for around $9 million, according to the Wall Street Journal, and the artist himself appeared as BMW exhibited the M3 GT2 race car he designed in 2010. — Compiled by Mary Jane Park

Floral creations impress and delight at Art in Bloom and a similar event. When Chris Giftos visited the Huntsville (Ala.) Museum of Art last year, he impressed guests with his nimble flower-arranging expertise and his insider information about celebritires. The onetime director of special events and master floral designer at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York will be the guest speaker on March 7 at the annual Art in Bloom fundraising luncheon benefiting the Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort. Giftos captivated his Alabama audience with stories about Greta Garbo, Elizabeth Taylor and Diana, Princess of Wales, and he worked with several first ladies and with Martha Stewart. Art in Bloom runs March 8-11 in the museum, with a preview party, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Flowers after Hours,â&#x20AC;? on March 8 and conversations with floral designers the next day. For details, visit fine-arts.org. In Sarasota, Ringling in Bloom opens with a designer preview inside the Ringling Museum on Feb. 27 and features Florida-friendly tours and tutorials. Information can be found at ringling.org. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mary Jane Park
