As the Pittsburgh food scene continues to explode onto the national register, we are taking the time to relish in our good fortune of living here. Our fourth annual Chef’s Best Dish event means that we will be welcoming food lovers to the Circuit Center & Ballroom on the South Side from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, NOVEMBER 15. With our scorecards in-hand, we will taste little bites of the best food our local chefs can make. We watched as they brought in the ingredients to assemble them for our spectacular Chef’s Best Dish photo spread beginning on page 47. Intriguing new combinations make for beautiful images, and the fun the chefs had describing their concoctions heightened our excitement. Join us by getting your tickets now to vote for your favorites at Chef’s Best Dish! Pittsburgh is known as being a philanthropic center, and we are making it easy for you to find your nonprofit focus in our annual Giving Guide on page 73. Find your grateful spirit and continue to make our community a special place for everyone. HERE’S TO GIVING THANKS!

SCOUT’S HONORED LEADING THE WAY The Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild (MCG) Jazz program is celebrating its 30th anniversary and an even bigger accomplishment: becoming one of the first JazzHubs in America! The group is one of four chosen by Jazz Forward Coalition to support the long-term sustainability of jazz across the country. “As we enter our 30th season of jazz programming, we are excited to help spearhead opportunities for audience development, community engagement, and programming for jazz activities throughout the region,” says Marty Ashby, executive producer of MCG Jazz. You can support the program — and enjoy a night of great music! — with Acoustic Alchemy’s performance NOVEMBER 9 at the MCG Jazz Concert Hall. Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild Jazz, 412.322.0800. mcgjazz.org.

For 20 years, Prime Stage Theatre has upheld its mission to “bring literature to life” by executing plays that are relevant to and being studied by our community’s youth. The tradition continues this month with its production of “To Kill a Mockingbird” at New Hazlett Theater. Harper Lee’s classic novel, which taught us the importance of doing the right thing and accepting others, takes center stage NOVEMBER 4-13. As an extra treat for fans, actress Mary Badham, who played Scout in the original film with Gregory Peck, will host “An Evening with Scout” NOVEMBER 12, which includes a reception before the show begins and a Q-and-A session afterwards! Prime Stage Theatre, primestage.com.

IT’S THE HOLIDAY SEASON

IN DEMAND

Well — not yet. But you can get in the spirit a little early with “A Christmas Story, The Musical.” Before the hilarious holiday staple plays on an endless loop in your living room, Ralphie, Randy, and your favorite fragile lamp will stake their claim at the Benedum Center from NOVEMBER 22-27. Part of the PNC Broadway in Pittsburgh series, and presented by Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Symphony, and Broadway Across America, this show adds even more joy to the original tale with songs like “You’ll Shoot Your Eye Out” and “It All Comes Down to Christmas.” Benedum Center, 412.456.6666. TrustArts.org.

The 1975 is really making a name for itself in 2016. Following the successful launch of its latest album, I Like It When You Sleep, For You Are So Beautiful Yet So Unaware Of It, the British rockers have filled the airwaves with awesome ‘80s vibes and captivated fans across the world. With tracks ranging from the funky single “The Sound,” to the cool heartbreaker “Somebody Else,” it’s clear why the group is so popular. And why Stage AE is hosting the 1975 for two nights — OCTOBER 31 AND NOVEMBER 1 — and both shows are already sold out! Stage AE, 412.229.5483. promowestlive.com. The 1975, the1975.com.

GIVING BACK TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD G

orging on donuts while running a race is not an obvious combination, but one local group found a way to bring the two together and raise big bucks for a great cause again this year. The Pittsburgh Donut Dash is an annual fundraiser organized by students in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon (SAE) fraternity at Carnegie Mellon University that challenges participants to run a mile, eat six donuts, and run another mile in Schenley Plaza. All proceeds from the fundraiser directly benefit The Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research at The University of Pittsburgh, which aims to develop new treatments for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, or “ALS.” When their fraternity advisor and Pittsburgher Bob Dax was diagnosed with ALS in 2014, the SAE brothers chose the Center as the beneficiary for future Donut Dash proceeds, pledging to raise $500,000 in five years towards research for the disease. Huntington Bank, a sponsor of this year’s event, understands the importance of supporting community initiatives like the Donut Dash, for they serve as a catalyst for a brighter future in local emerging neighborhoods.

“They were more than just an event sponsor, Huntington Bank became a partner in our success,” says Suzanne Alexander, whose husband, Neil, passed away from ALS in 2015. In his memory, she volunteers to raise funds for The Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research. “We are lucky to have a fun group of college kids supporting our efforts, and that businesses in the community want to be a part of it.” Along with its sponsorship of the Donut Dash, Huntington also celebrates a host of new beginnings in 2016, including the opening of a new branch in East Liberty’s Eastside Bond, featuring 24-hour ATM service. The multi-phased Eastside Bond project, supported in part by Huntington Bank, has helped the East Liberty neighborhood reclaim its place as a premier shopping and residential destination, with more than 360 apartments, 43,000 square feet of retail space, and a host of modern transportation options. Branch Manager Clarence Jackson, a native of East Liberty, finds it rewarding to work for an organization that actively serves its community.

“There are so many positive things happening in East Liberty and Huntington is proud to be part of it,” Jackson says. “From providing the Eastside Bond financing, to rolling up our sleeves and volunteering, it is important that we make a difference in the lives of our customers and our neighbors.” When the Donut Dash organizers needed banking support to simplify administration of their growing event, Jackson was pleased to help by opening the very first branch account in support of the race. And it was perfect timing, given the results of the 2016 event. This year, the SAE students took a gigantic step toward achieving their five-year pledge by shattering their original fundraising goal of $132,000 (which included race sponsorships, donations, and registrations). They were thrilled to raise more than $175,000, breaking the national record for the largest known fundraiser ever conducted by a single fraternity or sorority chapter. In the wake of such a successful event, Jackson says People’s Gas really came through for the group as well by signing up early as presenting sponsor. Huntington was also excited to join the effort, and even helped hang fliers in advance of the fundraiser.

Suzanne & Neil Alexander with their family

LIVE LIKE LOU In 2011, Neil and Suzanne Alexander founded LiveLikeLou.org, a fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, after Neil was diagnosed with the degenerative and fatal neurological condition ALS. The fund was named for baseball great Lou Gehrig and the gratitude and determination he displayed during his journey with the disease. Through the Alexanders’ efforts, more than $3 million has been raised to provide assistance to ALS patients in Western Pennsylvania, and to fund research to find a cure. In 2015, the Alexanders and The University of Pittsburgh announced the formation of the Live Like Lou Center for ALS Research with the ultimate goal of finding a cure for ALS. To fund this research center, LiveLikeLou.org has pledged to raise $2.5 million by 2020. Unfortunately, Neil passed away just weeks after their announcement. Suzanne continues to support their organization’s mission and fundraising efforts through events like the Pittsburgh Donut Dash. In just three years, The Donut Dash event has raised $375,000 toward its pledge.

CHEF’S BEST DISH 2016

PRODUCED AND WRIT TEN BY ANDREA BOSCO STEHLE PHOTOGRAPHS BY MICHAEL FORNATARO ST YLED BY ANDREA BOSCO STEHLE, ALYSSA OT TO, AND JASON SOL AK SPECIAL THANKS TO LENDABLE LINENS AND ALL OCCASIONS PART Y RENTAL

Seven days and 30 food shoots later, we reveal to you our 2016 Chef’s Best Dish spread in anticipation of our fourth annual event. The vision for the shoot’s production came to me as a play on an elegant Tim Burton-meets-Dorothy Draper dinner party. What we came up with was something less eccentric, but still whimsical, allowing the dishes and their seasonally inspired ingredients to really speak to our readers. We had a blast working with Ed Amori of Lendable Linens and Allison Miller of All Occasions Party Rental, who so graciously provided us with all the gorgeous materials necessary to achieve our look. Using patterns of black, white, and ivory, and textured, jewel-toned elements, we built a beautiful foundation for each chef’s creation. On the following 20 pages, we invite you to devour each dish and then do so literally on Tuesday, NOVEMBER 15, at the Circuit Center & Ballroom. For tickets, visit whirlmagazine.com/bestdish.

Chef’s Best Dish 2016 is sponsored by Dollar Bank, Pittsburgh Brewing Company, Beam Suntory Spirits and Wine, and Yelp.

CHANGING THE GAME Dr. Volker Musahl shares how astounding research and the collaborative atmosphere at UPMC Sports Medicine combine to improve the lives of all patients today and for years to come BY RACHEL JONES

F

or the last 16 years, Volker Musahl, MD, has been a crucial player on the UPMC team. Currently, as the medical director for the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex and an associate professor of orthopaedic surgery, roles he’s served for the last three years, Dr. Musahl works with athletes and non-athletes with knee or shoulder injuries. He’s also the team physician for Mt. Lebanon High School and the co-head team physician for the University of Pittsburgh football team. “It’s a lot of work, but it’s really rewarding and a lot of fun,” Dr. Musahl says.

Dr. Musahl (right) on the sidelines with his mentor, Freddie Fu, MD, chair, Department of Orthopaedic Surgery

While he spends half of his week performing surgeries and the other half seeing patients in the office, Dr. Musahl also runs a biomechanics laboratory and conducts a substantial amount of research. When focusing on ACL injuries, he looks at improving surgery, decreasing recovery time, and individualizing treatments for each patient. But the biggest question to answer is what causes repeat ACL injuries. These are not caused by force or contact — so why do some people tear their ACLs and others do not? “That’s a very puzzling situation,” he explains. “We’ve done a lot of research in the past years trying to figure out if there’s something different in the shape of their bones or in their hormones or their physique or landing patterns. We’ve made some really interesting observations: The shape of the athlete’s tibia and femur bone in the knee have some very distinct features, and those athletes seem to tear their ACLs. Now, our next move will be focusing research on how to detect this and create prevention programs that will help us avoid this, specifically in high-risk athletes.”

Department of Physical Therapy; Richard Debski, PhD, codirector, Orthopaedic Robotics Laboratory; William Anderst, PhD, director, Biodynamics Laboratory; and orthopaedic surgeon Mark Rodosky, MD, chief, Shoulder Service, can begin studying exactly that and start developing a rotator cuff index that will make for an easier and more efficient way to determine the best treatment for each patient’s specific needs. The five-year project kicks off this month, following 100 patients through MRIs, ultrasounds, dynamic stereo X-ray assessments, range of motion and strength tests, and their evaluations of each treatment. “We really think this is going to be a very impactful study,” he says. “It’s a collaboration between bioengineering, physical therapy, orthopaedic surgery.” This collaborative energy fuels the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex and the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex alike, which Dr. Musahl says is a perk for everyone. With orthopaedic surgeons, primary care sports medicine physicians, physical therapists, MRI technicians, researchers, and athletic trainers all under one roof, the melding of everyone’s expertise allows for all-encompassing care, a stronger team to create bigger, brighter ideas, and a comforting environment for patients. “Of course, it’s also fun for any injured patient to be in the physical therapy area where you may see these professional football players rehabbing right next to you,” Dr. Musahl says with a laugh. “I think that’s what’s really unique about our sports complexes — you have this huge athletic training program, you have all of these schools, universities, and pro teams associated with it. It’s like family. I think the patients really like that. It doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or just a weekend warrior. We take care of everyone the same way.” UPMC Sports Medicine, UPMCSportsMedicine.com.

“We have developed an ACL technology that can assess rotational knee instability in athletes,” he adds. “It is an iPad compatible software developed here at Pitt. For the past two years, we have preseason-tested our football players and have collected baseline data on their rotational laxity. This will become tremendously helpful should injuries occur.” The conclusions of this research could revolutionize the world of sports medicine, along with the new findings Dr. Musahl and his team are striving to discover in the area of rotator cuff injuries. Prevalent in athletes and non-athletes over 45 years old, rotator cuff injuries can be healed with surgery, physical therapy, or other treatment methods. But the decision of which route to take isn’t clearly defined. Thanks to a large grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Dr. Musahl and his co-investigators James Irrgang, PT, PhD, chair, 68

POWERFUL SUPPORT Pittsburgh’s Cancer Caring Center provides free support to people in all stages of treatment BY CHRISTINE TUMPSON • PHOTOGRAPH BY MICHAEL FORNATARO

The power of the Cancer Caring Center lies within its very foundation with a focus on empowerment and positive reinforcement for cancer patients and their families, including children. With an effervescent leader in Executive Director Rebecca Whitlinger, the center’s team of supportive professionals provide care in a warm, comfortable environment. The center’s self-described primary task is to help people discover inner resources to effectively cope with cancer. Empowering patients and families by providing free care reinforces the message that life can go on after a cancer diagnosis. FROM ROBIN BERUH, ASSISTANT DIRECTOR, CANCER CARING CENTER

T

he Cancer Caring Center is dedicated to providing free social and emotional support to cancer patients, their families, and friends in Western Pa. since 1988. In addition to support networks throughout Western Pa., we provide individual counseling, telephone helpline, and the Young Adult Cancer Support (YACS) program. We also offer wellness programs (hands-on therapy, reiki, art therapy, and gentle yoga), pet therapy, and counseling for children who have a family member with cancer. In the last few years, we have seen a dramatic increase in the number of patients who are uninsured or underinsured. We totally agree with Greater Pittsburgh Community Food

Bank (GPCFB) that no one should have to choose between prescriptions and food! The Center partnered with GPCFB in 2007 to offer some basic nonperishables including liquid nutrition, i.e., Ensure. The Center is the only agency that offers a case of Ensure per patient per month. The Center is supported by local foundations, private donations, and a handful of fundraisers each year — Steelers Style Fashion Show, Pittsburgh Rock ‘N Roll Legends Awards, Jeans, Jewels and Jazz, and our new Kennywood 5K.

NEW BREWS

YELLOW BRIDGE BREWING COMPANY The doors to Yellow Bridge Brewing Company open this month in Delmont, right off Route 66. With a focus on American-style ales, the new brewers will add in fun flavors that reflect the season or their individual creativity. (Their favorite beers are hop-forward remakes of standard styles!) Visitors will get the full experience of the brewery each time they visit, as the brewhouse is situated right in the taproom. Food trucks, catered food, and occasional live music keep every visit new and fresh. For the holiday season, we recommend the Fig Braggot. The mead-beer hybrid is perfect for chilly winter nights! Yellow Bridge Brewing Company, 2266 Route 66, Delmont. yellowbridgebrewing.com.

BLOOM BREWERY For the adventurous beer drinker, make Bloom Brewery in West Newton a future stop. Co-owners Jeff Bloom and Steve Denk have a combined eight years of home brewing experience to create an exquisite repertoire of 24 craft beers on tap. Each one is created in small batches, using as many local ingredients as possible. Some are even grown by Bloom and Denk themselves, as the pair owns a two-acre fruit orchard, raises their own bees, and grows some of their own hops. Taste the freshness in one of the breweryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s IPAs, porters, stouts, sours, fruit beers, or classic favorites. The flavors speak for themselves! Bloom Brewery, 100 Riverside Drive, West Newton. 724.322.4494. bloombrew.weebly.com.

FURY BREWING COMPANY Located on Route 30 in North Huntington, Fury Brewing Company is another new brewery on the block. Founded by three friends with a shared interest in brewing, Tom Jenkins, Stephan Hoffer, and Ryan Slicker will be ready to fill growlers for guests by the end of the year. We look forward to trying the Graham Cracker Stout and Christmas Spiced Ale â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both great options to bring to a holiday party or sip on a night snowed in.

BETTER TOGETHER

Some of our favorite beers’ flavor profiles just beg to be complemented by a rich dish. Check out a few pairings we deem perfect:

All Saints Brewing Company Since 2011, Jeff Guidos has become the unofficial leader in the Greensburg brewery scene. While serving as the assistant brewer at the Red Star Brewery for nine years, Guidos knew that owning a brewery was in his future. He just didn’t have a name. As a Saint Vincent College alum, Guidos naturally wanted to name his new brewery after a saint, but he couldn’t choose just one. So, he named it All Saints Brewing Company. He continues to pay homage to the holy ones with brews like St. Timothy Hop Harvest Rye Pale Ale and St. Dora Orange Wheat Ale. And the varieties have been enjoyed by the masses on tap lists across the area, from the Oakmont Country Club and the Art on Tap happy hours at The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, to Pittsburgh locales like Piper’s Pub, Blue Dust, or the James Street Gastro Pub. If you’re in Greensburg, opt for dinner at Oliver’s Pourhouse. All Saints’ Greensburg Lager, which is influenced by both the Boston Lager and the Noble Pils provides a hoppy aroma and clean finish that will pair well with the grilled salmon sandwich, topped with fried onion straws and spicy aioli. All Saints Brewing Company, Route 119 and Roseytown Road, Greensburg. allsaintscraftbrewing.com. Oliver’s Pourhouse, 8 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Greensburg. 724.836.7687. oliverspourhouse.com.

Rivertowne Brewing From restaurants to taprooms to breweries, Rivertowne Brewing has done it all! With locations in Verona, North Huntington, Monroeville, and the North Shore, beer enthusiasts have plenty of options for enjoying a creative brew like the Hala Kahiki Pineapple Ale, Babbling Blonde American Blonde Ale, and Old Wylie’s IPA, to name a few. See where it all began at Rivertowne’s brewery in Export. There, you can take a tour, grab a pint in the Tap Room after, or purchase beer to take home to friends. This holiday season, try the festive Rudolph’s Red. The imperial, red-style beer stands out with its unique hue and burst of cinnamon flavor. Our friends at Tapped Brick Oven & Pourhouse have taken it to the next level, creating pan-seared duck breast with Rivertowne Rudolph's Red and blueberryspiked glacé. Add a side of root vegetables and you’ve got a comforting dish to warm up to. Rivertowne Brewery, 5578 Old William Penn Hwy., Export. 724.579.2145. myrivertowne.com.

DAZZLING DIAMONDS Head to Goldstock Jewelers NOVEMBER 10-12 and NOVEMBER 17-19 for a jewelry sale so spectacular, one could compare it to winning the “golden ticket!” During the two-weekend-long “Golden Ticket” event, the jeweler will be offering 20 percent off pricing and opportunities to win sparkly prizes. From engagement rings to fashion jewelry, there’s something to catch everyone’s eye. Goldstock Jewelers, 717 Liberty Ave., Suite 203, Downtown. 412.281.1789. goldstockjewelers.com/goldenticket. Save the Duck men’s stretch puffer jackets, $295 each.

UPGRADED OUTERWEAR For those who aren’t “down” with coats and jackets that feature down feathers, Save the Duck outerwear has your back. The Canadian line utilizes an in-house developed technology called PLUMTECH, which imitates duck feathers, providing animalfriendly, light-weight insulation that’s easy to care for. Find both men’s and women’s styles at local fashion guru Ayellet Rubinstein’s new lifestyle shop, Rue Boutique, opening in November at McCandless Crossing. Rue Boutique, McCandless Crossing, 730 Providence Blvd., North Hills.

TRENDY TRESSES Now is the perfect time to switch up your look with a fresh new ‘do! We asked the skilled stylists at Jeffrey Smith Salon to break down the biggest trends for the cooler weather ahead, and to share their tips for keeping our tresses tamed. “For clients with summer highlights, we’re taking them darker to warm them up. Instead of lighter, it’s a more natural and richer color,” says stylist Taryn Johnson. “Anything that’s going to mirror the leaves falling from the trees!” says stylist Megan Gavin. Also trending are lived-in looking cuts, with natural texture, and more blunt styles with movement on the ends. Letting hair air dry overnight and styling it in the morning aids in creating that natural, not too done up look, notes Johnson. “Bangs, more subtle ombre color, and twists and braids are still hot, too,” adds Gavin. Jeffrey Smith Salon recently began offering Kérastase’s new Nutritive Protocole Immunité mask, the most intensive moisturizing mask ever offered by the line, ideal for anyone whose hair is feeling parched from the summer sun. Says Gavin, “The in-salon treatment pairs well with the popular richer, darker tones for the season, to help amp up the shine.” Jeffrey Smith Salon, 5806 Bryant St., Highland Park. 412.441.1440. jeffreysmithsalon.com.

There's no place like

SEWICKLEY, especially during the holidays.

READY TO RELAX In this beautiful time of enduring chilly temperatures and preparing for upcoming holidays, we could all use a little extra TLC. Refresh your body and mind with a relaxing trip to the Sewickley Spa. Start with the Pumpkin Spice Facial, which features a pumpkin face mask for a seasonal spin on the signature spa rejuvenating facial. Jonelle McMahan of the Sewickley Spa highly recommends it — not only because we’re all about everything pumpkin spice this fall, but also because of the countless benefits the veggie brings to the table. “Pumpkin offers a source of enzymes that act like alpha hydroxy acids and contains more than 100 beneficial nutrients, which help reverse the signs of aging,” she says. And if dry skin is already posing a threat, fight back with a Paraffin Body Wrap. After your body is swaddled in warm paraffin and cotton, your head and face are gently massaged while your skin drinks in the moisturizing benefits. “The ultimate indulgence for your body.” To make an appointment, call 412.741.4240. The Sewickley Spa, 337 Beaver St., Sewickley. sewickleyspa.com.

BIGGER AND BETTER THINGS

CONVERSATION PIECE Every article of clothing and accessory you wear has its own story — whether it’s the sweater you fell for while shopping with your mom, or the bracelet your roommate brought you from Mexico.

As Pittsburgh’s booming medical community continues to garner national attention, passionate students in the field want to jump into their careers as soon as possible. But first, they want to receive the thorough training and all-encompassing education necessary to uphold the high standard in the area. The Ohio Valley Hospital School of Nursing does it all, preparing future nurses for a career in just 19 months. “The graduates can get into the workforce sooner and can begin an RN (Registered Nurse) to BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program,” says Barbara Michel, MSN, RN, director of Ohio Valley Hospital School of Nursing. Through classroom courses and hands-on work in the state-of-the-art simulation lab, students will earn 50 college-equivalent credits in nursing and 30 college credits in the areas of anatomy, physiology, microbiology, English, psychology, sociology, and ethics that will transfer to a BSN program. Upon graduation, these students will be certified in Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and ready to take the PA State Board of Nursing licensing exam (NCLEX-RN). This is the same Registered Nursing Licensing exam required of graduates from Associate Degree (ADN) or BSN programs. Once they pass the exam, they officially become RNs and are able to move onto a BSN program, if they choose to do so. Ohio Valley Hospital School of Nursing is proud to have more of its graduates pass it on the first try!Ohio Valley Hospital School of Nursing, 25 Heckel Road, McKees Rocks. 412.777.6204. ohiovalleyhospital.org/ schools/school-of-nursing.

FINDING RELIEF Anyone suffering from Dry Eye and Ocular Surface Disease can tell you how much the condition has left their quality of life a little wilted, too. The constant dryness, burning, itching, and discomfort take a toll on millions of Americans every year, and factors like aging, changes in medication or hormones, increased computer use, or the use of contact lenses can contribute to the chronic disease. “There’s a huge population suffering from it that may not get help. Or their eye doctor gives them artificial tears, which might not cut it,” says Dr. Alicia Telega of Shadyside Eye Associates and Dry Eye Center. “I focus my practice around helping those individuals.” Dr. Telega notes 50 percent of her practice is patients looking for relief from Dry Eye, with many seeking her out per their primary eye care provider’s recommendation. Some even drive hours to the office just to receive the specialized care from Dr. Telega! “I help a lot of patients who are passed the mark of using eye drops and taking computer breaks,” she explains. “I like to employ more aggressive treatments to see patients progress and move toward relief.” These include trying different eye drops or oral medications; applying punctal plugs to the tear ducts, which keep tears in eyes longer; placing donated amniotic tissue on the eye to heal the cornea; or the use of scleral lenses, which can help with dryness while also correcting vision. Dr. Telega's personalized and advanced approach helps calm patients’ irritating symptoms and bring a sense of peace to their lives. “It can make a patient miserable having to deal with this,” she says. “It’s a difficult, chronic disease. That’s why I specialize in it.” Shadyside Eye Associates and Dry Eye Center, 5730 Ellsworth Ave., Shadyside. 412.404.2626. shadysideeyeassociates.com.

KEEPING UP WITH TECHNOLOGY The rate of technological advancements in the hearing aid industry is astounding. New devices are constantly released, helping those suffering from hearing loss find a tailored solution that adapts to any lifestyle. “Today’s hearing devices are very inconspicuous,” says Debra L. Greenberger, MS, CCC-A, owner of Eartique. “So much less noticeable than your hearing loss.” To find the ideal aid for their patients, the experts at Eartique, including Greenberger and Allison L. Chase, AuD, CCC-A, start by administering a complete audiological test and conducting an evaluation with the most sensitive, state-of-the-art diagnostic and testing equipment. Once a solution is determined, patients can try their devices out with a free, 30-day trial period. “We work with each patient individually to ensure their communication success,” Greenberger says of this process. Additional items like custom-molded earplugs, earbuds, and earmolds to connect to phones and audio devices to provide hearing protection from excessive noise exposure are also available to patients. “We carry the newest devices on the market,” Greenberger says. “Eartique is the last stop you’ll make in successful hearing aid use.” Eartique, 2703 Murray Ave., Squirrel Hill. 412.422.8006. eartique.com.

OPENING THE DOORS With five studios across the Pittsburgh region, Yoga Flow strives to make practicing yoga easy and convenient for its dedicated students. And with its South Hills studio moving to Mt. Lebanon Boulevard, it can offer them even more! “We wanted to be in a more visible location with better parking options to make it more convenient for our students,” says Suzanne Nagel of Yoga Flow. The new space also features an expanded boutique — and more retail to fill it! — and unique lighting options to create a more zen-like atmosphere. It will continue to teach its trademark Heated Vinyasa Flow classes with new time slots available at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Since the new space has a full shower, students can now get in an early morning class, get cleaned up, and get ready to take on the day. Yoga Flow Pittsburgh, 250 Mt. Lebanon Blvd., Mt.

ALEXANDRA WILLIOTT & DANIEL TORCASI Although they attended Mt. Lebanon High School and Penn State University together, Alexandra Williott and Daniel Torcasi didn’t really connect until they both moved to New York after graduation. After meeting through mutual friends, the pair instantly connected and went on to date for five years. “Dan always joked that he had a six-year minimum before getting married, but I never thought he was serious,” Alexandra says. But he was just waiting for the right moment — which came when he brought their new puppy from Pittsburgh to their new home in Hoboken, N.J., and a beautiful engagement ring was tied to the collar! The couple returned to Pittsburgh for the big day, celebrating with a St. Bernard Parish ceremony and LeMont Restaurant reception. Alexandra took Daniel’s breath away with her effortlessly elegant gown from Kleinfeld Bridal, topped with the veil her mother wore on her wedding day. As the perfect ending to the evening, guests enjoyed the fireworks display at PNC Park from the venue’s huge windows. “I just remember holding Dan’s hand, taking it all in, seeing all of our loved ones together, and thinking about how wonderful the whole day was.”

Ashley encourages future brides to stay organized, let others help you, and most of all, don’t forget what’s most important: your relationship.

ASHLEY MAJORS & DAVID ROSENBERGER It was love at first bite for Ashley Majors and David Rosenberger, who went to Mad Mex for Gobbleritos on their first date and have been inseparable ever since. After two years of dating, David proposed during a romantic dinner on vacation in St. Maarten and even hired a photographer to capture the magical moment! Back in the states, the couple started planning a classic, timeless wedding at the Omni William Penn Hotel. Lush red roses, white hydrangeas, and white spray roses from Karrie Hlista Designs added to the black-and-white-decorated day. The couple’s cake fit the color scheme as well, with alternating layers of white and chocolate batter, and cookies and cream filling. An equally sweet memory from the celebration was definitely Ashley and David’s first dance to “Loving You Easy” by Zac Brown Band, before Kelli Burns Entertainment kept the dance floor full all night. “It was like having a party with 200 of our closest, hand-chosen friends, dancing the night away!”

{

Brianna’s beautiful gown featured fun details like a tulle skirt and beaded sleeves.

BRIANNA PFLUGH & DEREK FISK High school friends turned college sweethearts Brianna Pflugh and Derek Fisk let their creativity and personalities shine on their special day. The bride and her mother crafted most of the decorations themselves, including the baby’s breath bouquets, and incorporated peacock feathers, and teal and purple details to showcase the jewel-toned color scheme. A travel theme carried throughout the reception, too, from the “guest globe” attendees signed upon arrival at the DoubleTree by Hilton Pittsburgh Airport reception, to the Swedish Fish favors. (Their newly shared last name, Fisk, means “fish” in Swedish, so it only made sense to gift the candies to guests!) Brianna’s favorite part of the day was taking the first look and bridal party photos outside — even with the chilly temperatures and occasional flurries. “All of the bridesmaids were huddled together for warmth, and we got the most perfect, candid photos during that time,” she says. “Everyone was so excited and having a blast, and it just set such a fun, light-hearted tone for the rest of the day.”

ONE LAST

/ WHIRL GIVEN YOUR SUCCESS WITH “SANDYLAND” ON SIRIUS, HOW DOES RADIO DIFFER FROM PERFORMING LIVE? Sandra Bernhard: It's a whole different medium. You're sort of cloistered in this little bubble — you don't have to worry about seeing people. It's exciting because you know you're reaching people, but you can't really see them. You absorb it. It's not like walking on stage. It's a much more relaxed approach. YOU’RE HERE IN PITTSBURGH A FEW DAYS AFTER ELECTION DAY. HOW WILL THE RESULTS INSPIRE YOUR SCRIPT? SB: I’m counting on good news. I touch base with politics on “Sandyland,” but I try not to beat people over the head with the obvious. I try to infuse my work with what I think reflects my philosophy on life, which trickles down to being who I am. It's clear who I support. THE COMEDY BUSINESS IS NOT AN EASY ONE. TO WHAT DO YOU ATTRIBUTE YOUR SUCCESS? SB: A number of things, from the absolute mundane to the incredible people I’ve met, inspire me. There are so many talented people. When you get to know them and that's part of your life, the inspiration is endless. I just feel like I love what I do and I can't imagine doing anything else, so it keeps me plugged in and excited about whatever's coming next. WHO ARE SOME OF YOUR INSPIRATIONS AND WHO DO YOU ADMIRE RIGHT NOW? SB: I had Peter Yarrow from Peter Paul & Mary on my show. He's so amazing and so vibrant. I thought, ‘This man is 78, and he is as fresh and excited as he was in the ‘60s.’ That's amazing. I did a special show on the M train with Debby Harry and Chris Stein. It’s so fun to have this platform right now, too, because it enables my guests to talk about their feelings, their philosophy, and where they’re at in their career creatively. I’m so grateful that I have this platform.

A FORCE TO BE RECKONED WITH Sandra Bernhard has been making a name for herself since she led the charge for comediennes in the late ‘70s. Her career kicked off at L.A.’s The Comedy Story, where her uninhibited attitude launched her into roles in Martin Scorsese’s “The King of Comedy,” and various TV shows, including “Roseanne,” “Will & Grace,” and “Two Broke Girls.” From writing books to performing off-Broadway, she has conquered all areas of entertainment, and on NOVEMBER 12, she brings her humor to Rivers Casino for her show, “Feel the Bernhard.” We chatted with the fiery performer about everything from politics to projects, and what keeps her plugged in. For tickets to “Feel the Bernhard” on November 12, visit riverscasino.com. @sandragbernhard

W HI R L / NOVE M BE R 2 0 1 6

YOU’VE STARRED IN SO MANY SITCOMS AND RECURRING ROLES. WHAT IS ONE CURRENT TV SHOW YOU’D LOVE TO BE A PART OF? SB: There is so much great television now, between Hulu and Amazon and Netflix — it's a buffet. I'm working on a couple projects that I'm developing and writing myself, and one is based on my early life in L.A. I’m always going up for auditions and doing parts that people write for me. Whatever comes first will be fine for me. I KNOW YOU’RE A BIG FAN OF PITTSBURGH. HAVE YOU HAD THE CHANCE TO EXPLORE THE CITY WHEN YOU’VE BEEN HERE FOR PAST PERFORMANCES? WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE CITY? SB: I love the [Andy] Warhol Museum. I love the vibrancy of the town. It's very on the cutting-edge. It's one of my favorite American cities.
