PUBLISHER'S CORNER NEVER GIVE UP! Tuesday's election results were definitely a mixed bag. In politics, sometimes you just don't know what you are going to get. Some hopes and dreams did not materialize as expected for the Florida governorship and Senate seat, and for other states' Senate seats and governorships. The good news is that the people of Colorado elected Democratic U.S. Representative Jared Polis as our nation's first openly gay governor. Furthermore, the House of Representatives, under a Democratic majority, will now have the power to oppose Trump and curtail his ability to implement many of his divisive ideas and bad policies. Our LGBTQ community has fought for many years to achieve full equality and the battle for equal rights for everyone in our country is definitely not over. Keep up your activism and get ready for the presidential elections in two years. Change is definitely possible and our nation's future depends on it. In this week's issue, we bring you a beautiful photo essay by David Vance with an interview of sexy cover model Denzell Theodore, originally from Crown Point, Indiana, who currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. Denzell believes that "everything we desire has a way of actualizing itself naturally in time." If you like to cook, in Home Chef, we bring you some delicious ceviche recipes to enjoy the taste of the sea, Latin style. Ceviche is a delicious seafood dish typically made from fresh raw fish or shellfish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, and seasoned with chili peppers or other seasonings including chopped onions, salt, and cilantro. In community news, after 20 very successful years in Miami Beach, Score co-owners Luis Morera and Billy Kemp have decided to take their legendary nightclub in a new direction and build a very special new home for the Score family and their loyal customers. Check out our feature story about it. Score's final night at its current location will be this Saturday, November 10, 2018. I invite you to join in for a very special Closing & Relocation Party to celebrate all the wonderful Score memories many of us have with the Score family, friends and loyal customers during a grand final celebration in the current space. In Shopping Bag, we take a look at the new iPhones and Apple Watch. The holidays are right around the corner and a new iPhone or Apple Watch may be the perfect gift for your special someone or yourself. In Top Trax, DJ FR8-O brings you a few new alt-pop releases worth giving a listen to from alt-pop artists that have become just as popular – and sometimes more so – than their mainstream counterparts. Last, but not least, enjoy the great Halloween photos from this year's SAVE Halloween Ball and the Day of the Dead Party at The Manor in Wilton Manors.

HOME CHEF

By Michael W. Sasser

ou don't even want to wander into the argument over the origin of ceviche. No… no… no. It's like arguing which mole recipe was original in Mexico. And, uh, no, that's secretly not a signal to credit Mexico with being the site of ceviche's origin. It's considered Peru's national dish. It's popular in the Pacific coastal regions of Latin America. Then again, it's not uncommon in the Caribbean including in the Caribbean Capital that is Miami.

To answer your first question. Yes, the fish is "cooked." Remember that exposure to heat creates a chemical reaction that we choose to call "cooked." But exposure to acid over a period of time causes a similar chemical reaction, "cooking" lighter and more permeable foods (like fresh fish) without exposure to heat. (Options such as squid (one of my favorites) are often blanched ahead of assembly because cooking times in this method range considerably – you will want to research this). Thus all ceviche is actually "cooked" – that's the role of the citrus, although the flavor is essential too. It's just cooked the lightest way to preserve the natural flavor of the ingredient. Because of the manner of preparation, ceviche must be consumed shortly after the cooking period is complete, it's served So let's not go there. Let's start with the even cold or cool, is as safe as any other manner of serving the fish, and you can use more basic. Ceviche is a seafood dish typ- any lighter fish or shellfish in it – the more gentle the better. ically made from fresh raw fish or shellfish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime, Delicious? Oh yes. Ceviche is the flavor of the ocean, delivered to the table with and seasoned with chili peppers or other a slight Latin twist. It's the ultimate cabana dish, the device that transforms poolseasonings including chopped onions, salt, side to oceanside, a singular taste of the tropics. Serve with crackers, tortillas, and cilantro. Plenty of other easily curable lettuce cups, in an avocado half or spice it up with a fresh tortilla chip or Indian vegetables show up in some varieties, from papadum. tomatoes to cucumber and more.

It's important to remember that different sea creatures take different amounts of time to cook. Until you've done it a few times, do your research. Also, yes, the hot pepper is integral. I have yet to find a palatable way around a little heat in ceviche. And for those who feel cilantro is evil... also, I haven't found a substitute. Here is a simple starter recipe for a fantastic, elegant presentation. Toss 1 pound bay scallops, 2 diced green tomatoes, 2 minced shallots, 1/2 minced jalapeño, 1/3 cup lime juice, 3/4 cup orange juice and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt in a glass bowl. Cover and chill, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 hours. Add salt, pepper, and chopped cilantro. Top with sliced avocado. (source: foodnetwork.com) When ready, kick it up a notch. My personal favorite utilizes squid. Squid is still the wingette of the sea – inexpensive and delicious. Buy or cut fresh tubes into small rings. Blanch in salted water until just cooked through. Rinse, drain, dry, refrigerate. Then add to the preparation a half a red onion, sliced into thin slivers, a jalapeño pepper minced with no seeds or ribs, 1/2 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup natural orange juice, 1 tsp minced garlic, and a diced tomato. Flavors that match well with ceviche include avocado, tomatillo (in the mix) and mango (to finish).

Ceviche can be as diverse as a salad, but I find that too many veggie ingredients distract from the purity of the fish, the citrus and the heat. But it's a matter of taste and there are tons of recipes available online. Find the one that best fits your tastes, master it and then branch out. You will be glad you did.

POP'S ALTERNATE UNIVERSE

f you're a big fan of sci-fi like I am, you might have heard the term "alternate universe" thrown around once or twice. Without geeking out too much, they're basically worlds that are just like ours, but with a few tweaks. Much like the comic book worlds of DC and Marvel, the music universe has a slightly twisted side to it too. In the past, alternative pop (or alt-pop) used to be the red-headed step-cousin of radio pop; typically played by unsigned artists and enjoyed mostly by misfits, outcasts or those who craved an "alternative" to the everyday top 40 playlist. Today, thanks to this worldwide phenomenon called "the Internet" (you might have heard of that too), alt-pop artists have become just as popular – and sometimes more so – than their mainstream counterparts. Here are a few new alt-pop releases worth giving a listen to no matter what world you live in.

Allie X - Super Sunset Citing some of this century's greatest female artists as her influences, this Canadian singer/songwriter/producer/model/actress (whew) has amassed a global following that would make Lady Gaga herself bow in respect. On her latest EP, Allie weaves tales of her time in LA into delicious electropop melodies that fans from any zip code can relate to. If her music alone isn't enough to make you love her, she once told i-D Magazine, "I have a lot of young fans and a lot of LGBTQ fans. After meeting and hugging so many of them, I often picture them when I write now, and I try to send my support."

The Ting Tings - The Black Light These guys have always been a little edgier than your typical pop musicians, but that's what we love about them. They first made their way into our ears in 2008 with their breakthrough debut We Started Nothing, featuring addictive anthems like "That's Not My Name," "Shut Up and Let Me Go" and "Fruit Machine." On their fourth collection, lead singer Kate White still seems to have a chip on her shoulder, but that's when she sounds the best. The crown jewel of the set is the rapid-fire banger "Word For This."

St. Lucia - Hyperion Let's just forget for a second how incredibly sexy lead singer Jean-Philip Grobler is. OK, the second's over. With the help of his bandmates, Grobler spins songs reminiscent of the best decade in music – the '80s, of course. On their third album, the Brooklyn-based band seems to be a little more in the present, but still paying homage to the sound that made them who they are. Dripping with synthpop and thumping drumbeats, Hyperion is a dancer's dream, especially on "A Bigger Love" and "China Shop."

his week's sexy cover model is Denzell Theodore, originally from Crown Point, Indiana, who currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. World-renowned photographer David Vance took very beautiful photos of Denzell for this week's cover story photo essay. I sat down with Denzell to learn more about him, what he does for a living, modelling and more. Rafa Carvajal: Where are you originally from and where do you live? Denzell Theodore: I am from Crown Point, Indiana, but currently live in Brooklyn, New York. RC: Describe yourself in three words. DT: Three words to describe me‌ that isn't hard. Talented, vibrant, and eccentric. RC: What do you do for a living? DT: I am a commercial print model and actor.

"CHASE YOUR DREAMS! OUR DREAMS GIVE US PURPOSE... OUR DREAMS ARE OUR PURPOSE." - DENZELL THEODORE

RC: Who is the professional icon that inspires you most, and why? DT: Tyson Beckford, for sure! Since I was a child, I always hoped I would grow to have a striking face like his. If we switch gears to the acting world, Fran Drescher is a big inspiration for me. That kind of humor she brings to her work is very relatable for me. #45 2018 WIREMAG.COM 15


"EVERYTHING WE DESIRE HAS A WAY OF ACTUALIZING ITSELF NATURALLY IN TIME." - DENZELL THEODORE

16 WIREMAG.COM #45 2018


"MY FAVORITE PASTIMES ARE EXERCISE AND SINGING. I COULD DO BOTH ALL DAY LONG." - DENZELL THEODORE

RC: How do you stay in such great shape? DT: I keep my great shape by being consistent in the gym, knowing what to put into my body and what not to, and also really good genetics. My father pretty much handed me his body. RC: What do you enjoy the most about modeling for photography? DT: Just being in front of the camera. I feel at home. It's definitely where I am meant to be in life. RC: Boxers or briefs? DT: Briefs. Boxers are far too loose for me and give me anxiety.

#45 2018 WIREMAG.COM 17


RC: What is your favorite food? DT: I honestly don't have a favorite food. Nothing ever comes to mind when someone asks me. I just eat what I eat, when I eat it. RC: What is your favorite pastime? DT: My favorite pastimes are exercise and singing. I could do both all day long. RC: Where would you travel if you could go anywhere, and why? DT: I really want to travel to India. I may make this a reality very soon. RC: What is your current struggle? DT: Staying present. Not placing so much pressure on myself and letting things happen naturally when they happen. Everything we desire has a way of actualizing itself naturally in time. RC: Is there anything else you would like to share with Wire Magazine readers? DT: Chase your dreams! Our dreams give us purpose... our dreams are our purpose.

NEW IPHONES & APPLE WATCH

IPHONE XS

The iPhone XS is essentially the improved version of the X – more powerful and faster in a slightly sleeker body with an OLED HDR display. The XS's camera has also been improved, along with its water resistance capabilities (dropped in water up to 4.9 feet deep for half an hour). If you aren't a fan of plus-sized phones, the XS is the way to go as it virtually offers the same features as the XS Max, in a lighter, more hand-friendly design. Starting at $999 for 64GB

IPHONE XS MAX

With a 6.5" OLED HDR display, the iPhone XS Max is designed for plus-size iPhone lovers! One of the biggest advantages of the larger phone is its battery life of 10 hours and 38 minutes – beating the iPhone X by about 90 minutes. With that said, if you'd like the largest screen of any iPhone in existence (currently), make sure to buy the iPhone XS Max. Starting at $1,099 for 64GB

IPHONE XR

The XR isn't as sharp as the XS, but it also costs significantly less while including all of Apple's latest technology and features. The XR is also a bit bigger and wider, with an LCD screen instead of OLED. It is definitely the one to consider if you don't want to pay the $1,000 entry price for the XS models, while still getting most of the perks. Starting at $749 for 64GB

APPLE WATCH SERIES 4

With its largest display yet, the Apple Watch Series 4 has a re-engineered digital crown, now with cellular capabilities to allow phone calls, and the ECG app coming in the future. This redesigned model will allow you to stay even more active, healthy and connected. Starting at $399

I invite you to join in for a very special Closing & Relocation Party to celebrate all the wonderful Score memories many of us have with the Score family, friends and loyal customers during a grand final celebration in the current space. The site of Score's new location will be announced soon.

In addition, Score will continue hosting its weekly Saturday night parties through December at a temporary location to be announced very soon – while they ready their new venue. Luis and Billy ask for the continued support of our community to maintain their Saturday nights, which have made 22 WIREMAG.COM #45 2018

"AFTER 20 VERY SUCCESSFUL YEARS IN MIAMI BEACH, WE HAVE DECIDED TO TAKE THE BUSINESS IN A NEW DIRECTION… TO BUILD A VERY SPECIAL NEW HOME FOR THE SCORE FAMILY AND OUR LOYAL CUSTOMERS." - LUIS MORERA

I sat down with Score co-owners Luis Morera and Billy Kemp to discuss the recent news. Score's owners proactively negotiated a lease extension with their landlord, but were unable to reach a satisfactory agreement to continue operating Score at its current location. Luis and Billy want everyone to know they are excited at the idea of combining all of the wonderful elements of Score's locations on Lincoln Road and Washington Avenue with the prospects of a new events space where the LGBTQ community, Miami's party-goers, and tourists will be able to enjoy all the incredible events, music and world-class DJs that have made Score legendary over the last two decades.

Score Miami's #1 gay nightclub. Luis and Billy also want to thank the entire Score family, their loyal staff, friends and customers for their many years of unwavering support and look forward to seeing everyone soon at the opening party for its new location. Wire Magazine will keep you posted on further updates about Score's new location. This is what Luis had to say when we sat down for a chat at Score. Rafa Carvajal: Why did you decide to close Score and relocate it? Luis Morera: After 20 very successful years in Miami Beach, we have decided to take the business in a new direction. We are looking to relocate Score to the Miami mainland area in 2019. RC: What are you looking forward to the most about a new location for Score? LM: We are very excited about being able to attract a broader audience to the new Score, less city regulations and, the best part, being our own tenant to build a very special new home for the Score family and our loyal customers. RC: What are your plans for reopening Score? LM: The plans are still in the works. We will provide everyone with details as soon as we can. RC: How will the new Score differ from the current nightclub? LM: We plan to combine the two segments of the business that Score is known for, a bar portion and a great events space. The bar will operate regularly and the events space will operate every weekend and for special events. RC: Is there anything else you would like to share with Wire Magazine readers about Score and your future plans? LM: We would like to once again thank our entire team (managers, bartenders, bussers, light technicians, audio technicians, entertainers, and dancers), our patrons and supporters for their continued support. We are ready and excited to work on a new venture. In the meantime, we will be focused on delivering an amazing Circuit Festival Miami, and on continuing our Saturday night events beginning December 15, and until the new Score is ready. Stay tuned for more details!
