THE ISSUE

T

he arrival of May always stirs within me a deep sense of nostalgia. The smell of fresh cut grass invokes memories of my dad mowing the lawn on Saturday afternoons. Twilight’s magic hour reminds me of lying in my childhood bedroom, comforted by the soft pink light peeking through the curtains. And no

matter how old I get, driving my car with the windows down instantly transports me to being a newly-licensed 16-year-old at the wheel of our family’s old blue Volvo. For me, that feeling of total freedom, of knowing that I could go anywhere and do anything, is the embodiment of

Photographer Daniel Cavazos' daughter, Ryder Blue, tagged along while he shot the motorcycle stuntmen at the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show. She was not a fan.

This year’s The Outdoors Issue is very much a celebration of summer’s return. In “How to be a Texan,” Andrea Valdez throws the ultimate Texas garden party complete with Frito pie, margaritas and plenty of Aqua Net. In “A Pease of Austin,” we tell you about the future of Central Austin’s beloved Pease Park. In “The Magic of Morocco,” world traveller Deana Saukam returns to tell us about the majesty and wonder of this West

African country. (Readers may remember her from “Oh, Those London Nights,” which ran in the November 2015 Nightlife Issue.) And finally, writer James Ruiz found some of Austin’s it’s no wonder that local designers and architects are using their outdoor spaces to showcase some of their most impressive and dynamic work. Though summer may not officially begin for a few weeks, we hope this issue inspires within you

In “How to be a Texan” we discuss the art of getting perfect Texas hair. It took a lot of Aqua Net for photographer Knoxy Knox to get the perfect shot.

Right As RAIN by Kristin Armstrong I L LU S T R AT ION B Y J OY G A L L AG H E R I USED TO HATE THE RAIN.

Years ago it was my excuse to cancel my run and stay inside all day. It was an automatic out. I hated running in the rain, the way it made me blink when it hit my lashes and the way I felt chilled to the bone. I didn’t like the way my running clothes stuck to my skin and chafed, or how my ponytail tangled into a giant dreadlock. I really don’t like wind, so I hated how the trees would bend, sending loose leaves scattering across the desolate trail. I never liked navigating around puddles, or wearing heavy, soggy shoes that kept getting rocks in them. I didn’t like the way wet dirt splashed up onto my calves or having to leap over rushing water as it poured into Lady Bird Lake. I didn’t like the way my seat and floor mat turned into a wet, muddy mess as I drove home. Rain was just not for me. My best friend and running partner, Paige, could not understand this about me. She absolutely loves the rain. As far as she’s concerned, the rain just eliminates the pansies and the riff raff, leaving plenty of room for the dedicated and the diehards. On a beautiful day everyone hits the trail, crowding out the regulars, much like trying F O R A L I M I T E D - E D I T I O N P R I N T, C O N TA C T J O Y G A L L A G H E R @ G M A I L . C O M

ennifer Chenoweth’s art starts not with a medium, but with an idea. “Then I work backwards to decide the best way to execute

my ideas,” the animated artist explains during a conversation in her East Austin home/studio. Such was the case with her latest project, The XYZ Atlas, an interactive public art piece that doubles as an examination on how humans create attachment to place. Wanting to visualize those attachments and study patterns, Chenoweth turned to the Austin community. The artist created a 20-question survey asking people to identify where they have had significant experiences. She then used the responses to create a body of work — including a series of Geographic Information System maps, temporary art installations, unique 2-D and 3-D artworks and a digital platform — that maps Austin’s collective emotional highs and lows. (Willing participants can still take the survey online at xyzatlas.org.) The final edition of The XYZ Atlas: The Hedonic Map of Austin Finale, will be released and on display at Barton Springs during the West Austin Studio Tour (May 14-15 and 21- 22). An interactive mapping event will take place at Zilker Park on May 21 and 22. Before the project culminates, we caught up with the artist to shed light on the project and her inspiration.

You have worked as an artist in Austin for more than two decades, but this is arguably your most ambitious project to date. Tell us why The XYZ Atlas is different.

How did that turn into this three-year long interactive public art project?

Taking the survey — either online or as part of one the mapping events — can definitely be a visceral experience. The questions ask things like ‘Where did you fall in love?’ and ‘Where did you feel the intensity of your own cruelty?’ Can you talk a little about the survey itself?

On a rainy day, a kid’s best friend can be a cardboard box that is quickly transformed into a house or a castle. Taking this idea into the digital era, Bryan Thomas and Amelia Cosgrove created PopUp Play, an Austinbased company that produces 4-by-4.5foot fiberboard playhouses, which can be customized through an iPad app and easily assembled at home.

Simmons Family Farm M AY 1 4 -1 5

Farmgrass Fest, a family-friendly outdoor music festival, is back for its second year. Located on the Simmons Family Farm, a 130acre lot of pristine farmland about 45 minutes outside of Austin, Farmgrass Fest will provide a unique opportunity to see the best of bluegrass. During the two-day extravaganza, attendees can enjoy beer, food vendors, fresh produce and the toe-tapping sounds of bluegrass artists like Austin’s own Shinyribs. In addition to bands like The Lost Pines, Dawn & Hawkes, Sour Bridges, Danny Barnes & Barn of Wood and Jenny and the Corn Ponies, attendees can partake in the Airstream boutique, a mobile shop featuring handmade and vintage jewelry, clothing and accessories. Also on hand will be a kids’ activity area, yoga and more. But the celebration is about more than a music festival. Farmgrass is the brainchild of Talia Bryce, who set out to create an event in support of our local farming community. Proceeds from the fest go to an emergency medical fund that's available to farmers throughout Central Texas. Simmons Family Farm is located at 100 Simmons Family Farm Road just off of Holz Rd. (CR 224), south of Niederwald, Texas. tribeza.com

On May 6, the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center will celebrate the season of spring and the importance of conserving our local Texas terrain with the 2016 Wildflower Gala. Held in the gardens, this elegant affair focuses on raising funds and awareness to help aid the center’s preservation efforts for Texas nature and our environment. With classical string music setting the scene for the night, this bold and vibrant gathering will also provide guests with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres starting at 6pm followed by a catered dinner by the Four Seasons Austin at 8pm. The evening’s live auction promises unique prizes including a trip to San Miguel de Allende. In addition, the gala will also seek funds to create a theater in remembrance of Lady Bird Johnson at the Wildflower Center’s Visitors Gallery. “All proceeds raised from our gala benefit the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and wildflowers everywhere,” says Robin Murphy, director of development at the Center. To purchase tickets or to sponsor a table, please visit: wildflower.org/gala.

On the eve of her book’s launch, Valdez invited TRIBEZA into her Windsor Park home to learn once and for all how to truly be a Texan.


Writer Andrea Valdez enjoying her frito pie.

HOW TO: TEXAS HOSPITALITY There is Southern hospitality, and then there is Texan hospitality. If you’re fixin’ for a good time, grab the four most important ingredients: Fritos, chili, cold drinks and tequila. Says Valdez: “People wanna congregate in the kitchen, they wanna have a good time, they wanna eat good food, these are things that bind us together. Texas food is kind of singular in its way; it’s really easy to build a menu around. Everyone loves Fritos, everyone loves chili, everyone loves tequila — well, everyone loves tequila until at some point they don’t."

HOW TO: FRITO PIE Though there are many incarnations of the famed Frito pie, keep it simple with a small bag of Fritos, a big pile of chili, and garnish to your heart’s content. Says Valdez: “No matter if you live in Amarillo or if you live in McAllen, you have probably had Frito pie. It’s one of those things that spans all parts of the state. It’s definitely a big draw. There are other foods that probably don’t have the same kind of resonance across the state. For instance crawfish is probably East Texas, San Antonio has the puffy tacos. But the Frito pie is definitely something that everyone across Texas knows and enjoys and loves.”

HOW TO: BAKE A PROPER PECAN PIE If there is one dessert on the menu, make it this classic. Says Valdez: “The pecan is our state nut, the pecan tree is our state tree and the pecan pie is our state pie. So it would be an oversight, to say the least, to not include it … The thing I like about the pecan pie recipe that I included in the book is that it has two tablespoons of vanilla, and I think that makes a big difference. Vanilla is one of those things where in pecan pie, I don’t think you can do too much. Go big on the vanilla.”

HOW TO: CRAFT A MARGARITA Three simple ingredients, one crowd-pleasing cocktail. Says Valdez: “To me the margarita is best when it is very simple. I think a lot of people have a lot of tendency to dress it up in various ways and don’t get me wrong, I like a jalapeño hibiscus margarita as much as the next person, but I think for the true margarita it’s three simple ingredients and then salt and lime. It’s the perfect refreshment.”

50

MAY 2016 | tribeza.com


HOW TO: PLAY DOMINOES Sit for a spell and play this classic Texas version of dominoes. Says Valdez: “Once you play 42, you don’t wanna play any other kind of dominoes. It’s just so fun, there’s a lot of gentle trash talk and ribbing, there’s strategy involved. It’s a partner’s game. I love playing as my husband’s partner. Usually it goes well, [though] every once in a while we do turn into a squabbling couple. But for the most part, I think we form a great alliance — a great domino alliance.”

51


HOW TO: CHOOSE A BELT BUCKLE Much like hair, when it comes to belt buckles: the bigger, the better. Says Valdez: “It is one of the best places to stamp your own personality. I feel like when you see a belt buckle it says a lot about a person. [If someone is wearing a] trophy buckle that’s really big and ostentatious, you have a sense of who that person is when they’re coming towards you ... It’s just a reflection of your personality.”

Vintage belt buckles, prices vary, available at Feathers Boutique.

52

MAY 2016 | tribeza.com


HOW TO: BIG HAIR Arm yourself with a can of Aqua Net and a rat-tail comb; then make sure to tease, tease, tease and spray, spray, spray. Says Valdez: “When it comes to big hair in Texas, there are a lot of really excellent role models to look to. There are the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders who have really perfected the big hair with movement. [They are] able to sashay with big hair and make it look effortless and glamorous. That’s really amazing. There is also Ann Richards, who would often repeat — and I’m not sure if she was the first to say it but she’s certainly one of the most famous to say it — ‘the taller the hair the closer to God.’”

HOW TO: BE A TEXAN Whether you were born here, or just got here as soon as you could, there is no denying the magic of being a Texan. Says Valdez: “I fully expect that some people will disagree with some of the things I’ve included or wish I had included other things. Just as there are 100 ways to field dress a deer, there are 100 ways to be a Texan.” Spoken like a true Texan.

The travelers stayed in style at Jnane Tamsna, a boutique resort comprised of 24 private villas spread over nine acres. During the day, Markel introduced her companions to the Jewish quarter, where they dined on tagine and marveled at the dozens of brightly-colored spices. After a trip to the Palmeraie, a vast palm grove just outside the city, the group headed to Jemaa el-Fnaa (or night market). Among the treasures Saukam collected, a handmade silk and linen coat (pictured on page 66) was one of her favorites.

SPRINGTIME IN AUSTIN is a fleeting moment of transition between mild winters and scorching summers.

Like our strange and wonderful weather, our outdoor living areas reflect a life lived both indoors and outdoors. Here, we take a look at how designers created beautiful living spaces to marry the amenities and style of a home interior with natural elements and outdoor activities.

tribeza.com

| MAY 2016

73


MULTI- LEVEL EN T ERTA I N I NG SPAC E After an architect convinced a couple in their early thirties to redo their outdoor living space in lieu of adding an addition to their Travis Heights home, the couple reached out to their friend Stephen Breaux, principal at Breaux Design Group. During their initial conversations, the homeowners explained that they wanted a versatile place to entertain, but also an intimate space where they could relax.

74 MAY 2016 |

tribeza.com

THE DESIGN APPROACH

THE EXECUTION

“We tried to make a strong connection between living spaces, inside and out,” says Breaux. Since the topography of the property was heavily terraced, the final design featured three different levels, each with their own unique purpose. Breaux designed the closest space to the house to retain a level of intimacy, while most of the entertaining space (which is one level above) is adjacent to the pool.

“It’s not so much [what materials] you use; it’s how you use [them],” explains Breaux about utilizing hardscape and softscape materials, the majority of which were sourced within a hundred miles. The look and feel of the outdoor living space directly outside the home is restrained, but with each inclining level the landscape becomes less refined and much more wild. The homeowners now enjoy a tiered space that transforms into a wild oasis that is intimate yet sprawling.

A QUI ET SA NC T UA RY The homeowners travel frequently, and use their Bouldin home as a sanctuary in which to relax. The couple asked for an outdoor living space that could comfortably fit a small gathering, but could also transform into something much more intimate and secluded. THE DESIGN APPROACH

“It is one of the big reasons why the outdoor courtyard was internalized,” says DIG:A Principal Craig Hoverman, of the clients’ desire to create an intimate escape. Since the homeowners also like to entertain, two large pocket doors were installed between the kitchen and living room which open to create one large open air space for guests. Along opposite sides of the courtyard are two private spaces, a small den and the master suite, both of which get plenty of sunlight and a view of the courtyard. THE EXECUTION

Hoverman’s design took full advantage of five heritage oaks on the property. (In fact, he created a structural floor plan that afforded every room a view of the majestic trees.) “Although [the property] feels so open, it is actually incredibly private and secluded. You can drive down the street and miss it every time,” says Hoverman.

T HE ULT IM AT E O UT D O O R K I TC HEN In 2013, owners of the popular eatery The Grove, Betsy Clemons and her husband, Reed, decided to revamp the backyard of their home near Mount Bonnell. The restaurateur couple knew they wanted to create a gourmet outdoor kitchen, as well as install a putting green for Reed, an avid golfer. Betsy, designer and manager of her own landscaping company, Dig Austin, had the unique advantage of designing for herself.

THE DESIGN APPROACH

THE EXECUTION

Because the swimming pool and deck area were already in place before the project was started, Betsy turned her focus to the three-hole putting green, which, though labor-intensive to install, requires very little maintenance. “[Artificial turf ] is a great solution for an area where you want grass,” explains Betsy.

The outdoor kitchen, which boasts a gas grill, a refrigerator and a Big Green Egg — an oval-shaped ceramic grill that’s perfect for smoking meat — is Reed’s domain. The chef is a graduate of Peter Kump’s New York Cooking School (now called the Institute of Culinary Education). But when he’s not boiling large pots of lobster for guests or smoking barbecue, Reed spends his time chipping around the putting green.

A NES T F OR NEWLYWED S Interior designer Robin Colton first collaborated with her clients when they were newlyweds living in a condo in The Austonian. When the time came for the couple to purchase a singlefamily home, they once again tasked Colton with the design. The client’s wish list included a lawn for their dogs and a pool for the husband, an avid swimmer.

THE DESIGN APPROACH

THE EXECUTION

“We needed to turn the property into a living space as opposed to just a beautiful outdoor space,” explains Colton. When the couple first purchased the Tarrytown home, most of the backyard was gravel surrounding a tiny patch of grass. But since the clients frequently hosted dinner parties, Colton sought to create multiple spaces for entertaining, including a fire pit area adjacent to the swimming pool.

To help facilitate flow, Colton designed a screened-in porch to provide a seamless pathway for guests to move from the kitchen into the backyard. For the landscaping, Colton collaborated with designer Robert Leeper, who worked with the home’s previous owners. Together they created an outdoor living space that’s inviting and multifunctional.

Revival Cycles opened their inaugural brick-and-mortar retail storefront on South Congress in October 2015.

REVIVAL CYCLES HAS ALWAYS been about

more than just motorcycles as machines. When they first opened their East Austin custom and vintage motorcycle shop in 2010 on Bolm Road, Revival offered bike enthusiasts a mix of visually dynamic designs and custom expertise. The shop became a place to go not just to get your bike fixed, but to immerse yourself in the style, craft and culture of motorcycles. In October 2015, Revival brought that same sense of community to South Congress with the opening of their inaugural brick-and-mortar retail storefront.

PROFILE | LIFE + STYLE

"It’s as much a show for us as it is for everyone else."

celebration of all things motorcycle at The Handbuilt Motorcycle Show. Handbuilt attracts a diverse crowd. Serious motorcyclists to curious non-bikers alike come out to mix and mingle with fellow enthusiasts and talk shop. The show, which returned this year April 8 through 10, brings in thousands of people from Austin and beyond eager to peruse original art, witness the vintage-style trick show at the “Wall of Death” and see custom motorcycles from some of the best builders in the niche business. “It’s as much a show for us as it is for everyone else,” says Rand. “We want to see all those cool bikes in the same spot too.” Motorcycles, especially great looking ones, continue to rise in popularity (they graced the cover of TRIBEZA’s Outdoors Issue last year), and the infectious spirit of Revival (and the Handbuilt Motorcycle Show) is enough to inspire even a non-biker to hit the road. Luckily for Austinites, Revival Cycle’s east side workshop and new brick-and-mortar give us a way to bring motorcycle chic to the streets all year long.

Monique Capanelli opened the new Articulture boutique in 2016, which features home décor, articulture creations and gifts in addition to studio space.

MAY 2016 | tribeza.com

2009, Monique Capanelli has worked tirelessly to change the way people perceive plants, specifically through an artistic lens. Now, with a new location on Manchaca Road — complete with a 2,200 square foot studio space, a gift boutique and an outdoor garden — Capanelli’s seedling vision is in full bloom. The self-proclaimed “art-repreneur” grew up in Northern California with a family passionate about gardening. When Capanelli wasn’t foraging through the creek beds around her home searching for driftwood to use in garden mobiles, her parents were teaching her about propagation, pollination and how to naturally prevent predators. This education as a child blossomed into passion as an adult, the fruits of which are evidenced through the wide range of botanical design work undertaken at Articulture. Over the years, Capanelli and her team have garnered many fans, from commercial clients like flagship Whole Foods Market to residential customers, while also taking on commissioned projects, weddings and corporate events. “We approach all of our work with a very artistic perspective,” she says. Craft aside, Capanelli also appreciates the visceral and emotional influence that her medium has on people. “Plants and nature evoke something innate and primal in all of us,” she says. Expressing these feelings through artful arrangements and installations is a labor of love and a passionate purpose for the entrepreneur. “That’s really what brings me joy,” she adds. Working with clients is also a source of joy for Capanelli, who enjoys being challenged and learning how her customers live and work. And this interest shows. Every project, be it a floating garden, a large living wall, or a small succulent terrarium, exudes innovation and individuality, structure and substance — and a unique reverence for Mother Nature’s boundless beauty.

Juniper was designed so the best seats would circle the kitchen and give diners a more engaging experience. "It surprises people," Yanes says. "They’re fascinated by what's going on back there and what goes into their food."

“WE DON’T HAVE ANY TABLES open at the

moment, but you can wait at the bar,” is a line every diner has heard at some point or another. It’s one met with disappointment or despair. Well, at least it used to be. As Austin restaurants and diners have embraced the unique benefits of bar and counter seating, these solo spots have morphed into some of the best seats in town. Take Odd Duck on South Lamar, where there is no bar in the traditional sense. In its place is a large, open kitchen surrounded on three sides by counter seating, where diners can watch as their dishes and drinks are created. “We like putting the talent of our kitchen on showcase,”

says Jason James, general manager of Odd Duck. “You sit at these seats and you say to yourself, ‘Damn, I can see everything!’” The same is true across the river at modern Italian newcomer Juniper. Located on East Cesar Chavez, the restaurant’s open kitchen is flanked by an intimate line of counter seats distinctly set apart from the main dining room. “You see people sitting there who are having a blast just watching the action,” says Nicholas Yanes, executive chef and partner of Juniper. The perks go beyond the free show. At the bar, your server is never hard to find, which 5 1 /guests. 2 R A I N E Y S T. translates1to 0 8even E . 7 Tbetter H S T. service7for S M A L LV I C T O R Y.

Eating at the bar fosters greater interaction with the people behind your drinks and food, like Joseph Barker of Odd Duck (left), who might tell you about the kitchen prep required for the Cold Shoulder (below),

“I like having them available to me at all counter seat surrounding the open kitchen, for times,” says James, who always opts for the bar an evening of “front row dining.” when dining out. “I like that personal touch.” And while a restaurant’s kitchen and bar Diners can strike up a conversation with their operations used to be fairly separate entities, server or bartender and learn more about the the two are increasingly being fused into one ingredients or spirits operation. At venues "'We always knew the kitchen like Odd Duck, the at play. (And it’s not unheard of to have a menus are would be integrated with the cocktail query about an obscure given the same amount liquer, for instance, bar," says Nicholas Yanes. "We of thought and prep that lead to a complimentary food menus are. “The wanted it to feel like home.'" ethic in our kitchen tasting.) More and more translates into our in Austin, bar and bar,” says James. “Our counter seating offers the best opportunity to bartenders come in and do prep shifts just like a see Austin’s finest cooks and drink makers in cook would in the kitchen.” This translates into action, whether it’s the counter seats at Sway drinks like Odd Duck’s Cold Shoulder, which that let you spy on the cooks flash-frying a pairs scotch with kitchen-crafted ingredients whole fish, or the bar seats at Dai Due where like toasted almonds and espresso. Along with you can watch the crew char local meats over other local stalwarts like Contigo, Foreign an open flame on their custom indoor grill. At & Domestic and Launderette, Odd Duck is the aptly named Counter 3 Five VII downtown, helping to close the gap between dining and there are no tables, just counter seat after drinking, helping Austin’s culinary culture echo

places like Barcelona and Madrid, where going out for drinks and tapas have been one and the same for centuries, or Tokyo, where Izakayas (a Japanese gastropub) have long offered the opportunity to simultaneously imbibe and ingest. “Today, the bar seat is a crossover to get people more engaged in restaurants,” says Yanes of Juniper. That seat used to be easy to come by, but as more and more diners and restaurants catch on to the beauty of eating at the bar, best belly up while you can.

K AREN'S PICK | FOOD + THOUGHT La Pepita at Vinaigrette: chopped green kale with shredded chicken, black beans, crumbled cojita, diced avocado with spicy crispy pepitas and a lemon-cumin vinaigrette.

by Karen Spezia | Photograph by Hayden Spears TALK ABOUT PERFECT TIMING. Just as spring arrives and thoughts turn to al fresco dining and summertime fare, Vinaigrette opens. This new salad-centric restaurant features one of the prettiest patios in town and serves refreshing food that won’t weigh you down. Located off South Congress, Vinaigrette occupies the former Tree House Italian Grill, unrecognizable now after a dramatic remodel. Clean lines and neutral colors are accented with unexpected pops of color, like flowers in a field. Vaulted ceilings and panoramic windows flood the dining room with cheerful natural light and a view of the lovely patio. Thankfully, the patio’s majestic live oak remains, its massive canopy providing welcoming shade. Gone are the hard ground surfaces, replaced by soft crushed gravel and natural wood, with tables nestled among lush grasses and planter boxes overflowing with fresh herbs. A wicker swing hangs whimsically in the corner and hay bales provide overflow seating. And if you’ve got a dog, bring it.

MAY 2016 | tribeza.com

But all this gorgeous scenery is wasted unless the food is good. And it is. Vinaigrette, with outposts in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, is famous for its entrée salads and rightly so. Fresh, creative, bold and delicious, they’ll win over even the most ardent salad foe. With almost two dozen options, each bursts with a riot of flavors and textures. I devoured the Salacho, a tasty spin on taco salad, loaded with crunchy romaine, red cabbage, scallions, red onion, and fresh corn, then scattered with ripe tomato, ground meat, cheese and cumin honey-lime vinaigrette. A squeeze of fresh lime elevated its flavors. My companion happily polished off his French Frisée, a mound of fresh, tender frisée topped with a perfectly poached egg, smoky bacon lardons and warm shallot vinaigrette. Other entrée salad options include the popular All Kale Caesar studded with chopped Marcona almonds and the Arugula Duck tossed with duck confit, goat cheese and roasted pears. Proteins like poultry, meat, seafood and tofu can be added to any salad. If salad’s not your thing, there are also appetizers, soups, and sandwiches. But salads are the star, and portioned large enough for a meal. There’s also an extensive beverage menu of inventive fresh fruit and veggie concoctions and garden-inspired cocktails. While intriguing, we preferred our glasses of Italian pinot blanc and French white Burgundy. Unquestionably, Vinaigrette is still a new restaurant. There were minor hiccups in service and food, but the vibe is friendly and the ambiance divine. The owner, Erin Wade, is committed to quality and plans to eventually supply most of Vinaigrette’s produce from her nearby Bastrop farm, which will make this delightful new restaurant even more appealing. As my companion said as we finished our meal, “Let’s come back here again soon.”
