stores, Madewell.

ince becoming a mom a year ago, I have come to appreciate the outdoors even more—long walks in the stroller would lull my daughter to sleep in the first few months of her life, and now, a trip to the park cures all woes. Baby Ford fits right in, in this city, where being outside is an essential part of being an Austinite. For the cover of this month’s Outdoors Issue, we featured creative couple Stephanie Derstine and Justin Buschardt, two citizens of Austin and bike commuters from the Cherrywood neighborhood. We interviewed them, along with other cyclists, about their adventures on wheels in “Pedal Pushers” on page 46.

In “Dining Al Fresco,” we invited Ben Edgerton of Contigo, Deeyn Rhodes of Nannie Inez and Keith Kreeger of Kreeger Pottery to show us their approach to entertaining outdoors. They even share their perfect party playlists. Take a seat at the inviting tables (or around the campfire in Edgerton’s case) on page 66. Our team is currently hard at work on the July Neighborhoods issue, as well as the August Nightlife Issue, and we are already looking forward to September’s TRIBEZA Style Week, which marks our 10th Anniversary. With this collection of stories about Austin’s great outdoors, we invite you to savor the city and celebrate these beautiful summer days.

If you haven’t had a chance to catch an episode of “The Daytripper” on KLRU, you are missing out. Chet Garner left a job as an attorney at a big firm to pursue his dream of hosting a television show where he explores Texas towns, providing viewers with a fun look at our great state. This month, Garner writes the perspective column on page 36. Our talented designer Ashley Horsley discovered the location for this month’s fashion spread, “Gone Camping,” on page 54—the Geronimo Creek Retreat. It had us at teepees, but then, we were charmed by the old-school rope swing over the creek, the vast pecan trees and lawn games scattered throughout the four-acre property.

Sun, Surf & Sand BY K RISTIN ARMSTRO N G I llu s tr atio n by Joy G a ll ag h er This year, it was my year to have the kids for spring break, and I decided it was time to change things up a bit. I usually opt for tradition over adventure with my children. Maybe this is a sweet gesture, an effort to build some continuity for kids who float between houses. Or maybe it’s a selfish rut, harkening back to the years when travel was more work than fun: car seats, pack n’ plays, double strollers and runaway toddler twins. During those years, it’s easier to go places you already know, especially if you are outnumbered. But my kids are older now, and traveling with them is a comparative breeze. It felt like the right time to buck tradition and go someplace none of us has ever been. We picked randomly from our family bucket list and chose Costa Rica, thinking it might be the perfect combination of jungle, adventure and beach. Some people have a default setting to mountains, and I like them too…in small doses, but my default is ocean. Give me sun, surf and sand over pines and altitude any day. Luckily, my kids agree. As with any adventure, I had a few pre-trip jitters. I’m afraid of reptiles, heights, getting lost, the Ebola virus, feeling out of control and falling in love. So I went someplace that had crocodiles, snakes, terrible roads, zip lines, suspension bridges, rappelling, a plethora of monkeys, my three children, my new boyfriend and his daughter. This was getting into the Arena, in the finest sense. Hopefully by now, you are well aware of the book Daring Greatly by Brené Brown. It started out as a casual read for me that quickly turned into transformation. Word of its power spread like wildflower seeds, and suddenly, lingo from those pages was popping up everywhere. She chose the title for her book from Theodore Roosevelt’s famous speech Man in the Arena: It’s not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The

credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly…who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly. So now, my friends and I talk about entering the Arena on a regular basis. We use the term as often and as comfortably as we talk about going to Starbucks, Randalls or Casis Elementary. The Arena is different for everyone, because it represents a personal area of discomfort and growth. An Arena could be taking a bold career step, giving a speech, having a baby, moving someplace new, speaking truth, sticking up for someone—or for yourself, signing up for a race or fitness program, learning a language, pursuing a new client, going back to school, opening your heart to someone or any leap of faith that stretches us, calling us beyond ourselves. Our trip to Costa Rica was a beautiful foray into the Arena. I got over (okay, dealt with) my fear of heights as we walked across a sketchylooking suspension bridge that dangled hundreds of feet over a rushing river. I peered down at crocodiles. I clipped into a rope and let go, flying through the jungle treetops on a wimpy-ass cable. I admired monkeys without holding my breath and slathering myself in Purell. I played in the ocean without Jaws music playing nonstop in my head. I went running even though I had no certain idea where I was going or how I was going to get back. I watched our children in the waves and opened my heart and my mind to the possibility that this man we were traveling with might actually be mine (ours). The best adventures of all involve going outside—outside in nature, and outside our comfort zones. It is impossible to dare greatly when we stay right where we are and do the things we’ve always done.

Alvin Dedeaux Fly Fishing Guide


here's something to be said about those who turn their childhood passions into their professions. For fly fishing guide and business owner Alvin Dedeaux, “turn” might not be the right word—but the juvenile hobby to thriving business part still stands. “The thing is, I never thought, ‘I should make a career out of this,’” Dedeaux laughs. “It just happened.” One could say his fortuitous career began at 12, when he asked his father for a fly fishing rod. Years of practice later, after falling in love with Austin in ‘79, moving to attend UT in ‘82 and having a job at The Austin Angler—a fly fishing shop on Congress— handed to him by the owner shortly thereafter, the idea to start a guide service materialized upon discovering a market for fly fishing and a lack of tours in the area. “We just started taking people out and working seven days a week,” Dedeaux remembers. When the shop closed a decade ago, his business remained and expanded. Since its humble beginnings, Alvin Dedeaux Fly Fishing has taken off, with a large social media presence and tours that require booking months in advance. Its success can be attributed to Dedeaux’s love of his craft. “It’s more of an art," he says. “You can work on your skills forever; I’ve been going at it since I was 12—I’m 40 now—and I’m still learning new things.” For more information about Alvin Dedeaux Fly Fishing, visit alvindedeaux.com.

10 Questions f o r A lv i n

What is the most beautiful place in the world you have ever lived? The fjords of southern Chile—glacier-covered mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other side. If you were an inventor, what would you invent? A time machine.


june 2013 tribeza.com

What are your three fly fishing staples? A rod, a line and some clear water. What is your favorite childhood memory of being outdoors? Sitting in a boat with my grandfather, watching him pull in a bunch of big fish out of the water. What is one thing most people don't know about you? I am a total tech nerd. I built my own website, and I built the computer I used to do it. What is the biggest challenge you have overcome? Procrastination.

If you could go fly fishing with anyone, who would it be? My dad. He died about 10 years ago and I have done a lot of cool stuff since then. Who or what inspires you the most? My wife and the way she keeps our whole world together. When and where are you happiest? Early morning on the water. Where is your dream vacation? I have about 10 of them—slowly but surely taking them all.

Lee Pilz


rt, whether it be abstract or representational, has a way of striking up a conversation with its viewers. In the case of Lee Pilz's sculptures, patrons usually begin this discussion with a question: what is it? Equal parts attractive and alluring, Pilz's work requires more than just the attention of the audience. "I want it to really jump off the wall for people," Pilz says. "I think you need to reward the viewer for coming up and getting closer." The recipe for creating his unique brand of work calls for unsuspecting materials— by casting plaster in various textiles, he captures the fluid appearance of the fabric. "The fabric is sort of doing the work for you of finding its own shape in reaction to the weight of the plaster," Pilz reveals. His installation at GSD&M, the "Idea Nest," uses Spandex to achieve the look of something breathing and oozing from the agency's ceiling. While Pilz's work is physically erupting from walls all over Austin, the artist, like many others, began his career on canvas. After graduating from the New York Studio School for Painting and Sculpture and attending Atelier 3-D in Austin, Pilz moved from the easel to engineering. "It's really a solution to creating the kinds of effects I want," Pilz says. "I want to create something that has visual impact and draws people in. I didn't want to be limited to two dimensions."

The Jeffrey’s Mercedes Need a ride after an evening spent feasting on prime Texas Akaushi Tenderloin Tartare and wood-roasted lobster Thermidor or partaking in a few cocktails from the martini cart? The newly reopened Jeffrey’s offers a word-of-mouth service where, if it is available, one of the seersucker-clad valets will slip on a driver’s hat and black leather gloves and give you a courtesy ride home in the restaurant’s black 2013 Mercedes Benz S550. Jeffrey’s created a map with boundaries to keep the car within to ensure a quick return to service more guests. Jeffrey’s is located at 1204 West Lynn Street, (512) 477 5584.

Justine’s Photo Booth Walk down the backyard of Justine’s, across the pétanque field, and you will find this magical little photo booth. The first version of the booth was done for Justine’s psychedelic 2013 SXSW Too Much to Dream party. The booth was such a hit with guests that the booth was redone with a late 60s feel—Paris pop meets Serge Gainsbourg and Brigitte Bardot with stripes, chandeliers and mirrors. The owner of Justine’s, Justine Gilcrease, says: “We did not intend it to be a permanent fixture, but guests have been wandering back and doing photo shoots of their own on evenings when there is a wait for a table. People take their cocktails into the booth and shoot really cool photos, then Instagram and Facebook them. The booth has a life of its own now.” Justine’s is currently accepting artist proposals to do a third version of the booth. To submit design proposals, email belledejour@justines1937. com. Justine’s is located at 4710 East 5th Street, (512) 385 2900.

“I first started mountain biking in the mid-nineties in Toronto and then in Detroit,” Gideon Tsang (pictured right) explains. What began as a recreational pursuit slowly turned into an interest in commuting, bike camping and finally, racing. Tsang competed in his first race last year, a one-day race in Copperas Cove where he surprised himself by placing third. Originally from Toronto, Tsang’s called Austin home since 1999. He commutes to work as a Pastor of Vox Veniae and spends most of his free time training, riding his custom-built Alchemy to Cuernavaca or Lime Creek. For a change of pace, he’ll take his wife and sons on rides to Barton Springs, Deep Eddy or Fiesta Gardens. “It’s just a fun thing

Growing up in Copperas Cove, Jessica Alexander got the urge to race at an early age. “I think I did my first race when I was probably seven or eight,” Alexander says. After a few years, she stopped competing but picked it back up about 10 years ago, realizing she still had energy to burn. Since then, she’s competed in two Ironman triathlons, learned to build and repair bikes and regularly leads friends on bike rides to Buda. A professional photographer, Alexander also uses her bike and the CapMetro rail to get to her studio in Round Rock. “I think commuting is one of the greatest parts of riding bikes,” Alexander says, “and Austin does make it easier than other cities to have the opportunity to commute.” She has five bikes she regularly rotates between, but her favorite may be the purple and black steel fixed-gear she built herself. “It’s kind of flashy, so when people see it, they just kind of do a double-take,” Alexander says. “But I feel like it best represents my personality.”

In 2007, Ian Sutton was studying aerospace engineering when he decided he didn’t want to wait to design things he wasn’t fabricating. He moved from California to Colorado to study frame building with Koichi Yamaguchi, a builder who’s designed for the US Olympic and National cycling teams. “It’s fun to be able to think of something and make it, and then, someone uses it,” Sutton explains. He built his first bike frame six years ago, which he still rides—a white steel frame, fixed-gear with narrow handlebars, optimized to fit through tight city traffic. In 2011, Sutton made frame building, under the name Icarus, his full-time focus, designing for riders all over the world. Re-locating his studio from Boston to Austin, Sutton moved here site-unseen last September. “The weather here is great if you like cycling,” Sutton says, admitting that many of his rides around town are to find tacos. He’s a fan of South First Street stops to El Primo and Torchy’s. Though his workload keeps him in his shop more than out riding, Sutton can’t complain. “I just started doing something I liked to see what would happen, and now, six years later, I ship bikes all over, and I don’t have a boss.” tribeza.com june 2013


“We all four love to be outside, and we’re always thinking of things to do, which usually involve getting on a bike,” Melissa Crager explains. Along with their two daughters, Lainie, eight, and Josie, six, the Cragers regularly seek out fun family rides, biking to the food trailers on Airport or coffee at Houndstooth from their home in the Mueller area. When Lainie was five months old, the Cragers got a bike trailer to take her on rides, and the girls learned on pedal-less balance bikes. Now, each has her own Trek to ride alongside Melissa’s Electra Townie beach cruiser on trail rides through McKinney Falls or around Butler Park. “I want the girls to understand that you can ride a bike anywhere,” Chad says. A project manager in the city of Austin’s neighborhood connectivity division, Chad regularly works on bike facility projects and often puts Josie on the back of

Deeyn Rhodes puts the finishing touches on her outdoor brunch. She says the key to being a good host is to prepare ahead of time. “It’s about welcoming friends into your home and making them feel comfortable,” she says.

decorator, and Katie Dorflinger, whom she met while working in New York for fashion label Chloé. The brunch is a mix of decorative pieces, such as gold flatware inside a gold-colored can, white Alyson Fox dining plates with gold accents, and coral roses. The menu includes farm-fresh edibles: blueberries, blackberries, grapefruit, french toast and mimosas served in retro-styled glasses. Rhodes, a former New Yorker and Londoner who moved back to Austin about three years ago, named her store after her paternal grandmother, Nannie Inez Rhodes, who died more than a decade ago. The University of Texas graduate says she enjoys using some of her grandmother’s accessories when she’s entertaining guests. “Aside from the fresh food that she served direct from her garden, my memories mostly consist of a table full of people and lots of laughter,” Rhodes says about her grandmother. “That’s why I like entertaining at home.” One of her grandmother’s treasures is the brunch table centerpiece: a turquoise, Depression-era glass stand. Placing her hand on the heirloom, Rhodes says, “I always like to tie something in from the source.”

Sipping on a glass of his wife’s cucumber mint vodka lemonade, Keith Kreeger shares a laugh with wife Evangelina Kreeger (right) and brother-in-law Guillermo Trabanino and his brother-inlaw’s fiancée, Reiko Takemasa.

Keith Kreeger’s vases are filled with peonies, his wife’s favorite flower.

Sitting next to his wife, Evangelina, and their cavapoo, Charlie, on a patio sofa at their Tarrytown home, Keith Kreeger takes a weekday evening to relax after working in his new East Austin studio. “This is how we entertain in the summer,” says Kreeger, a pottery designer for the past two decades. “I love to cook. My work is so related to food.” The Kreegers’ home includes the courtyard-styled space that quickly has become the backdrop for entertaining adults as well as their children, Javier, 10, Alejandra, 8, and Clara, 6, and their friends. For a visit from Evangelina’s brother, Guillermo Trabanino, and his fiancée, Reiko Takemasa, the Kreegers opt for Old World fare: chorizo and Toscano salami from Salt & Time, honeycomb, almonds, cheeses from Antonelli’s

about enjoying the space and enjoying what you have. I don’t know the point of having a beautiful table and an outdoor space and just looking at it.” For the Kreegers, adding personal touches to their space such as coral peonies, Evangelina’s favorite flowers, in Kreeger’s vases are just as important as the food they serve guests. “When we purchased the home, we knew the backyard was going to be the centerpiece for everything,” Kreeger says. He has one rule for entertaining guests that he always sticks to: “I never let them clean up. No

Ben Edgerton, co-owner of East Austin restaurant Contigo, says these words on a May evening outside his friend Brian Chilton’s home on the Colorado River in southeastern Travis County. Edgerton’s friends know he means them. Edgerton says he makes sure his guests feel cared for. At the restaurant, which is based on his family’s South Texas ranch, he says co-owner, chef and longtime friend Andrew Wiseheart handles the kitchen and menu, while he focuses on the hospitality the restaurant’s employees offer guests. “I love nothing more than when I can host a group and cook for them,” he says, looking up from the dinner preparation as his friends, including Wiseheart, stand around a campfire on the property. “The only time I even cook is when I cook for other people. The whole reason you’re getting people together is to relax. The whole point of what we are doing is community and conversation.” Edgerton, who grew up in San Antonio and moved to Austin in 2009 after spending five years in New York, is making a protein-rich, carnivore-friendly dinner for his friends: grilled sirloin, pork, burgers, chicken-and-curry sausage and corn. Already prepared is a tomato and avocado salad, and as a starter, Edgerton offers his friends tortilla chips and some Letelier Food Co. pâté that he picked up from Salt & Time. “We hang out,” he says. “We drink beer. We eat meat. And we make fun of each other.” And then there’s the music. Just after dinner, as the fireflies start to twinkle, Edgerton and two of his buddies, Brendan Bell and Brent Clifton, break out

Grilled sirloin and onions are part of Contigo co-owner Ben Edgerton’s dinner menu for a get-together with his buddies at friend Brian Chilton’s home on the Colorado River in southeastern Travis County.

An evening of friends relaxing, eating and hanging out by the campfire offers plenty of laughter and some singing into the night. Brendan Bell readies the fire, while Brian Chilton (left) fixes his plate, which includes grilled corn and a burger.

Chainsaw artist

“I did all sorts of stuff before this. Built houses. Delivered pizzas one night. I was a waiter for one hour,” laughs Doug Moreland, a musician and chainsaw artist. “I’ve had real jobs. But now, I mostly do this.” Moreland’s a tall drink o’ water, all blue jeans and cowboy hat. There’s a huge sign outside his property in Manchaca, Texas that says. “Texas Chainsaw Masters,” with huge, carved creatures scattered in the grass. “I saw some people carving bears in New Mexico a few years back,” Moreland says. “This was, oh, ‘98. They were selling ‘em left and right, so they loaned me a chainsaw, and I made a little bear that looked like theirs. Sold it for fifty bucks that same hour, and I was like, ‘Wow! What a way to make money!’” It’s no surprise his craft came naturally. The son of a fiddler-cum-blacksmith, he’d always been handy with a carving knife, but chainsaw sculpting was a revelation. Suddenly, he was selling pieces at shows (he’s also a touring Western swing musician), and tricking out old Mopeds with Texas accoutrements, likes saddles and armadillos. His chainsaw sculpting buddy, R.L. Blair, also creates pieces at Texas Chainsaw Masters (“he makes somethin’ every day,” Moreland drawls), and together, the two turn out stunningly detailed stuff: old, weathered faces with deep wrinkles and lively eyes; scale-covered reptiles; multi-layered totem poles. Just don’t ask for any bears. “I have a strict no-bear policy,” Blair says. “I’ve done enough of those for one lifetime.” Moreland agrees. “Why make a bear when you could carve a couple of armadillos carrying surfboards?” he asks, describing his current project. Why, indeed?

Over in East Austin, the walls are talking. Painted murals, like the vegetables sprouting along Hillside Farmacy and the vintage phonograph of East Side Show Room, speak of a sure hand. It belongs to Joe Swec, structural engineer turned mural and sign painter. “My sister Jana [Swec] was already out here living as an artist, and I wanted to find out how people did that. Supported themselves as artists,” Swec says. So he moved from the Bay Area in 2008 and got a job working at East Side Show Room. “The first time I did the chalkboard menu, they were like, ‘Oh, okay—can you do little lettering stuff for us everywhere else?’ So I painted the bathroom signs, the sign outside, things like that,” he says. His first mural job was the one outside the restaurant. “Then, other businesses started calling me to paint their places, and eventually, I was able to quit my job and just do that,” Swec says. Swec doesn’t like spending long periods of time at a computer, so he’ll take on select design jobs—but mostly, he spends his days painting. In addition to Hillside Farmacy and East Side Show Room, you’ve seen his work at Easy Tiger, Swan Dive, Barbarella, The Goodnight, Violet Crown, Pinthouse Pizza, Frock On Vintage, Wheatsville— signage and murals that bear a throwback sensibility, which he says came from his years living in San Francisco. “I think it’s comforting,” Swec says, speaking of the signs there. “Walking around, you may not even stop to study individual signs, but taken together, they all create this warm, inviting feel, when people used to hand paint signs more.” If Swec has his way (and signs indicate he will), Austin will move in that direction too. We appreciate a human’s touch, and lately, our city is becoming more attuned to the power of design. Austin has always been a place for lovers—now, we’re a place for lookers, too.

The alwaysstylish manager of STAG, Cara Crossley.

As the official kickoff for spring, the TRIBEZA Lawn Party was held at the whimsical French Legation Museum. A few of our favorite local shops like Beehive, By George, Kick Pleat, Sam Hill, STAG and Valentine’s Too dressed models in colorful looks for the season, and they led partygoers in rounds of croquet, checkers and bocce ball. Guests snacked on delicious samplings from Cloud 9 Cotton Candy, Cornucopia, Frank, GoodPop, Macarons by Jane and Max’s Wine Dive while sipping brews from Modelo Especial and Corona, cocktails from Deep Eddy Vodka and wine from Spicewood Vineyards. Aztec Rentals, SoCo Hammocks and Urbanspace Interiors decked out the lawn with lounge spaces for guests to linger in, and Ava Arenella serenaded the crowd with her mid-century-inspired jazz sound. The chic set of models are signed with legendary Texas agency Page Parkes, who after just being in the Houston (founded in 1981) and Dallas markets, opened an Austin office last year. The Page Parkes Center of Modeling & Acting (pageparkes.com) in Austin will serve as a training center for actors ages five and up through adult ages. The models’ hair and makeup were beautifully done by Ricky Hodge and his team at Ricky Hodge Salon, as well as by Jen Hoover of Pearl Salon.

Mark Word

Landscape Designer At his office

tucked inside Red Bluff Amusement Park and Worm Farm in East Austin,

Mark Word says his career path took root during the organic gardening movement of the late 1970s and early ’80s. “I got into the plant world as a kid by trial and error,” says Word, a University of Texas alumnus who is married and has a three-year-old son, Lyndon. Word says his dad, Tom, who now works at Word’s new East Austin nursery, had him catch fish at Barton Springs that were later planted in the family’s Barton Hills yard. The method, which was used by Native Americans and early colonists, is supposed to give plants a steady supply of nitrogen. “That was the original organic garden,” says Word, 45, who also had his own garden where he grew tomatoes and radishes. “Early on, it was clear that this was a fun thing.” After a stint in Los Angeles and years of working for other landscaping and gardening businesses, Word says his longtime friend, hotelier Liz Lambert, gave him advice that convinced him to start his own business. “She said, ‘You’ve got to do it for yourself,’” says Word, who worked on the landscapes of Lambert’s Austin hotels,


the Hotel San Jose and Hotel St. Cecilia. He is working on Lambert’s El Cosmico hotel in Marfa. Mark Word Design, which was combined with another business around 2005, has more than two dozen employees who are working on residential and commercial landscape projects—they worked on design elements for Georgetown restaurant El Monumento—and other ventures. Word says Jardineros (Spanish for “gardener” or “outfielder”), the nursery his firm opened this year on East Cesar Chavez Street, is meant to resemble the urban nurseries he remembers from his days in Los Angeles. He says the City of Angels is vibrant with plant life and design inspiration. “It’s just for the fun of it,” Word says about the nursery. “Over the years, we collected a lot plants that were in holding yards.” He says he wants the space, which includes HIJO, JM Drygoods’ offshoot for outdoor and gardening selections, to be a spot for gatherings. Word and his associates also plan to further expand their outdoor offerings, including designing and making planters. Word says he and business partner Billy Spencer are excited about their plans for a secondary business aimed at first-time homeowners who have limited budgets but


want intriguing outdoor spaces that capture the eye. “A good design is going to have a moment that will take time for you to appreciate,” Word says. M. Harper

Steve Haynes, the owner and founder of Fidelio Dog Works, has spent his life working with dogs.

rom a young boy training dogs on his grandpa's farm to a teaching a pup to "hang ten," Steve Haynes is not your average dog trainer. After leaving a career as a corporate executive, for fun, Haynes started training his neighbor's puppy and hasn't stopped since. With his natural ability for training dogs, Haynes launched his company, Fidelio Dog Works, in 2000 and has worked with approximately 6,000 dogs over the course of his thirteen years in business. Fidelio Dog Works' range of services is unmatched. Want your dog to bring you a cold beer from the fridge? Haynes can teach your pup just that. "We cover anything from the simple 'sit and down' all the way through 'teach your dog to ride a surf board,’'' Haynes says with a smile. "You have to look at it with an artisan approach; you have to assess the dog, people and the job at hand. It isn't cookie cutter because every dog is different." With the growing popularity of canine companions in Austin, Haynes feels he is in the best city for this business. From a clientele that asks for simple obedience training to celebrities who need their dog to behave when President Obama comes for dinner, Fidelio Dog Works offers the full spectrum while also staying small by design. In addition to Haynes, Lisa Hoysradt is the only other trainer on staff, creating a personal experience that Haynes feels is important to protect. With a train of happy, wellbehaved dogs behind them and their undeniable passion for their work, Fidelio Dog Works continues to change the lives of pooches and people alike. A. horsley P h oto g r a p h y by b i l l s a l l a n s

Kor180 From working as a media executive for a fortune five company in California to opening a fitness studio in Austin, CEO, founder and “Story Teller” of Kor180 Maja Kermath knows a thing or two about the pursuit of happiness. “The stories that we tell ourselves or that we tell other people can be really impactful both positively and negatively,” Kermath says “We have a really amazing story to tell at Kor180, so Story Teller is my title.” With a mission to help people “live life inspired,” from providing exercise to housing healthy products like gluten-free snacks and natural beauty care, Kermath cultivates a mecca for healthy living—in many ways. In the realm of exercise, Kor180 practices two fitness disciplines: one called Kor Interval training, based on the basic foundations of Pilates, and the other, Kor Indoor Riding, which combines thirty minutes on the bike with a thirty-minute strength workout. “The beautiful thing about how we train, the beautiful thing about intervals is that the interval is yours; it belongs to you,” Kermath says. “You take responsibility for your own workout.” For more information about classes at Kor180, visit kor180.com.

T h e S l a s h C l a ss at P u r e A u st i n Determined to create a workout program that was different from what anyone, anywhere was doing, and inspired by something her friend showed her after church one Sunday, Shirley Domicoli created the Slash Class, Pure Austin’s own high-intensity boot camp. “True story,” Domicoli says about her friend, “he demonstrated Bayonet Training from his military days. That’s all it took! From that, the ideas kept coming, and Slash was born!” By combining functional movements with bayonet training, calisthenics, athletic sports conditioning, use of body bar and interval training (just to name a few), “Slashers” build power, strength, lean muscle and positivity. “Slash doesn’t use a lot of equipment; it’s very simple, effective and hits all body parts,” Domicoli says. “No matter what class you do, it’ll always be something different, but it’ll always be a hard workout—no matter what fitness level you are.” The class is designed for anyone: from those Domicoli describes as the “weekend warrior”—or someone who is both energetic and participates in sports—to highly competitive athletes. “It’s geared to the person who wants to achieve more,” Domicoli says. For more information about The Slash Class, visit pureaustin.com.

Ride A typical class at RIDE is more than just your usual calorie-burning, sweatproducing workout; it’s what instructor David Garza calls a “roller coaster of emotions and movement.” With top-of-the-line Schwinn AC Performance bikes at members’ disposal and a sound system and acoustics on par with Austin’s high expectations in the field of music, classes reach beyond just exercise. “When you take my class, I want you to get not only a physical workout, but also a ‘mental floss,’” Garza says. “A cleaning of the mental things that bring us down on a daily basis and a replacement with positivity, courage and sense of self-worth.” By combining intervals, climbs, sprints hovers and their key ingredient, music, instructors like Garza and Caprice Richards maintain a positive atmosphere while challenging their “RIDErs” to push themselves physically and emotionally. The outcome: strength, endurance and, as Richards says, the ability to “release some emotional baggage.” “My challenge doesn’t end in the class; it reaches far beyond,” Garza says. “It strengthens the amazing Austin community and the RIDErs' immediate surroundings. The workout is a full mind, body and soul.” For more information about classes and scheduling, visit ride-indoorcycling.com. M. riley

CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF SUMMER LOVIN’ Destination Weddings in the Texas Hill Country


Noble Sandwich Co. 11815 620 North, Suite #4 (512) 382 6248 noblesandwiches.com


o you like sandwiches? The kind that drip down your chin and require extra napkins? Then you’re gonna love Noble Sandwich Company. This unassuming shop in northwest Austin is creating some of the tastiest, messiest sammies in town. Never heard of it? Where’ve you been? National publications like Bon Appétit, Food & Wine and the Wall Street Journal have been singing its praises since it opened in 2010. Chef/owners John Bates and Brandon Martinez keep their philosophy simple: make it, and make it better than the guy down the street. They’ve succeeded in their mission. Their exceptional sandwiches are made with topquality ingredients, most of which are made in house. Each ingredient is given due respect, resulting in a sandwich that’s not too bready, meaty or cheesy—but just the right balance of each. Noble’s lunch menu (it’s not open for dinner) offers about a dozen options. Start with the Smoked Duck Pastrami served on lightly toasted bread, slathered with Russian dressing

and topped with shaved rye pickles. It’s a goopy mess that’s worth every napkin. Or the French Dip-inspired Knuckle Sandwich: thin-sliced roast beef served on a French roll with onions, cheddar, horseradish and a side of spicy au jus. The namesake Noble Pig sandwich is layered with spicy ham, pulled pork, bacon, provolone and spicy mustard. Other creative choices include Creole Catfish, Thai Chicken and Smoked Pork Belly. And it’s not all meat at Noble Sandwich. The owners’ wives are both vegetarian, so there are always non-meat sandwich options, too. All meals are served with chips and homemade pickles. Also open for breakfast, Noble’s morning menu may rival its lunch offerings. Don’t miss the outstanding chorizo and egg sandwich: lightly toasted wheat bread filled with a fried local egg, melted cheddar cheese and house-made chorizo. The sausage is incredibly moist, crumbly and flavorful without being greasy. Other egg and cheese breakfast sandwiches include ad-

ditions like spicy ham, bacon or potatoes. All are served with perfectly crisped potato wedges that are anything but an afterthought. There are also non-sandwich options at breakfast. The biscuit with country sausage and black pepper gravy was fine, but I wish I’d ordered the blueberry waffles, which looked fluffy and inviting. For the healthconscious, there’s oatmeal, granola and yogurt. Formerly called The Noble Pig, Noble Sandwich Company has a robust catering, take-out and corporate delivery business. It hosts specialty theme dinners on occasion and plans to expand with a second location in central Austin later this year. Its original location in a strip center seats just a few dozen folks on rustic wooden tables under florescent lights. Next door is a tattoo parlor, convenience store and gas station. But don’t let the humble surroundings fool you: these sandwiches are noble indeed. K. Spezia

Nils Juul Hansen's Flat track coffee 913 E. Cesar Chavez St. (512) 814 6010


june 2013 tribeza.com


ypically, on school mornings, after I drop my kids off and swim in Barton Springs, I find a great cup of coffee and a good conversation to go with it. Local coffee seems to inspire those moments, and we are quite lucky to have a very devoted local coffee community here of operators, roasters and baristas who take pride in their job. Since moving here 12 years ago from Los Angeles, I've watched the city grow and add more dimension to the neighborhoods. Austin inspires freespirited original entrepreneurial thinking, and parts of it reminds me of Copenhagen, where I hark from. A friend of mine calls it a Peter Pan Village. Small wonder my kids love it here. I'm proud that they can call Austin home.

Nowhere is that charm more obvious than east of I-35. East Austin reminds me of Copenhagen in spirit, and I love the strong sense of community that I find there. As with the rest of Austin, all you have to do is say hi and you might discover that the tattooed girl on her bicycle is actually an avid urban bird watcher, and in her day job she holds quite a powerful position, locally, with a Fortune 500 company... and the guys over there with the beards that look like they're going hunting...they're the best design team in town and have designed logos for numerous local businesses. Every morning like clockwork, I seek refuge at Flat Track. They are the new kids on the block, and I'm a big kid myself. Flat Track offers their own single-origin whole-bean coffees, espressos that change and notably organic milk that they use for their cappucinos. The two partners, Matt and Sterling, are childhood friends from Fort Worth, and they named their tiny retail spot Flat Track after a classic motorcycle oval race track. (They even let me pull in my classic '64 Honda Dream one day just to see if it could be done.) They like stuff that moves. I can always count on meeting new people there and running into friends. Call it a coffeecentric get away. In Denmark we have something called “hygge” that roughly translates into a kind of lo-fi cozy...something that warms you up from within. “Hygge” is a general term that we use a lot. At Flat Track, I find both the “hygge” and a good cup of coffee. Nils juul hansen With a broad range of interests, Nils Juul Hansen has enjoyed a career as a commercial photographer/director/ producer and is currently becoming a realtor because he loves people and neighborhoods, but he’s also writing a funny self help book about women and men in marriages based on his own life experience.
