Miami Art Week has come and gone. I really enjoyed going to most of the fairs, seeing some beautiful works of art and meeting several artists who will be showcased in Wire Magazine during the coming months. Walking through the art fairs, I was reminded of how lucky we are to have so much beautiful art on display in our City by galleries from around the world. This is truly a privilege I never take for granted. After enjoying all the art, it is now time to shift your attention to Christmas and the holiday season. Finding a nice gift for the special people in your life, and even for yourself, may not be an easy task. So this week, Wire Magazine brings you another installment of our very popular special Gift Guide edition with some great ideas for gifts you can buy this holiday season. Whether it is the Apple Airpods that have become one of my favorite Apple products of all time for their convenience and ease of use, the OjO Commuter Scooter you can use to drive around Miami Beach, the Poppin Kicks Unisex Led Light Up Shoes that will surely get you noticed, or any of the other gift ideas included in our Guide, it will help you choose some nice presents for the special people in your life – or for you, if you choose to reward yourself. In Top Trax, Wire Magazine music writer DJ FR8-O brings you a very merry selection of new Christmas albums that will get you in the festive and gift giving spirit. Since all of us need a vacation every once in a while to get some rest and break away from the stress of our daily lives and the hustle and bustle of the holidays, in Destinations I share with you how much I enjoyed my staycation at The Perry Hotel in Key West and the delicious dining at its two restaurants. This new 100-room boutique hotel opened its doors in May of this year on the private, brand new state-of-the-art 220-slip Stock Island Marina in Key West, which is the largest deep water marina in the Florida Keys. Key West is open for business and welcoming back tourists from around the world, after having recuperated from the impact of Hurricane Irma. If you want to take a break, get in your car and drive down for a relaxing, fun staycation in the Keys at The Perry Hotel. Finally, I want to congratulate the people of Alabama for rejecting Roy Moore as their senator and saying no to his despicable beliefs and behaviors; and for handing a loud, clear and humiliating defeat to Donald Trump for his constant lies and bullying tactics. In a traditionally Republican state, Alabamians choose to elect Doug Jones as their senator – the first Democrat in a generation – and spoke loudly against Trump, Bannon and their fellow zealots.

CHRISTMAS AFTER MIDNIGHT – FANTASIA She's one of three artists on my list that is popping their holiday cherries for the first time this year, but she's no amateur when it comes to spreading cheer. The American Idol season 4 champ is still going strong on her sixth album with a mix of soulful holiday standards like "Baby It's Cold Outside," featuring Cee Lo Green, and Jazzy renditions of classics like "Merry Christmas, Baby."

CHRISTMAS QUEENS 3 - RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE QUEENS Those crazy queens are back again with another collection of twisted carols. Sharon Needles, Jinkx Monsoon, Thorgy Thor, Ginger Minj, Alaska Thunderfuck, Phi Phi O'Hara, and even Michelle Visage all put their own "wholesome" spin on our holiday favorites. And yes, there are some Hanukkah songs in there too. Oy vey! So slap on a wig, squeeze into that Mrs. Claus mini-dress and get ready to lip sync for your Christmas list.

BROADWAY'S CAROLS FOR A CURE 2017: VOLUME 19 – VOICES ON BROADWAY This annual holiday soundtrack has become as much a staple of Christmas as daddies with white beards. Now in its 19th year, Broadway's biggest talents have come together once again to raise their voices and help raise money to fight AIDS. The 2-disc compilation of holiday faves and original songs features the stars of Waitress, Dear Evan Hanson, Hamilton, Kinky Boots, A Bronx Tale and so many more amazing shows. It also benefits Broadway Cares/ Equity Fights AIDS and can be purchased at broadwaycares.org.

CHRISTMAS TOGETHER - THE TENORS If you prefer your Christmas carols a little more traditional, the Canadian trio delivers the classics gift-wrapped in their signature pop opera style. The highlights of the set are a modern rework of that classic Coca-Cola anthem "Santa's Wish (Teach the World)" and the upbeat "When We Are Together."

EVERY DAY IS CHRISTMAS - SIA As if we didn't have enough reasons to love Sia, now she went and made a Christmas album featuring ten original songs, including one about puppies! Not that we wouldn't love to hear her belt out yet another cover of Mariah's "All I Want For Christmas," but when you're one of this generation's greatest songwriters, why would you? The faceless singer launches the set with the funkalicious "Santa's Coming For Us," followed by a stream of candy-cane sweet songs that are set to become future holiday classics.

FINALLY IT'S CHRISTMAS - HANSON Get ready to "MMMBop" your way through the Holidays this year. Before there were the Jonas Brothers; Isaac, Taylor and Zac were showing their fans and the charts some serious brotherly love back in the long-haired '90s. Now that they're all grown up and (mostly) trimmed down, they're stuffing our stockings with their first Christmas album in 20 years. Like most holiday albums, it's got plenty of covers, plus a few original songs and a high-energy mashup to make your Christmas extra festive.

KASKADE CHRISTMAS - KASKADE The six-time Grammy nominated producer has finally unveiled his first Christmas album on his very own label, Arkade. Known throughout the world for his razor-sharp EDM tracks, Kaskade has slowed things down and created a festive soundtrack with beautifully crafted electronic productions trimmed with traditional sounds of the season. These 13 chill tracks feature rich, soulful vocals by Skylar Grey, Late Night Alumni, Ilsey, Gabrielle Current, Kayrae, Jane XO, Dia Frampton, Debra Fotheringham and Kaskade himself.

YOU MAKE IT FEEL LIKE CHRISTMAS - GWEN STEFANI From her ska days with No Doubt to her badass solo debut to her recent role on The Voice, Gwen has always been full of surprises. Her first Holiday album is no different. While other artists are putting a modern spin on the classics, Gwen goes old school on six standards and six original tracks, including the title song featuring her own not-so-little helper, Blake Shelton.

What is TRUVADA for PrEP?

Who should not take TRUVADA for PrEP?

TRUVADA for PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis) is a prescription medicine that is used together with safer sex practices to help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 through sex. This use is only for HIV-negative adults who are at high risk of getting HIV-1. To help determine your risk of getting HIV-1, talk openly with your healthcare provider about your sexual health. Ask your healthcare provider if you have questions about how to prevent getting HIV. Always practice safer sex and use condoms to lower the chance of sexual contact with body fluids. Never reuse or share needles or other items that have body fluids on them.

Do not take TRUVADA for PrEP if you: ® Already have HIV-1 infection or if you do not know your HIV-1 status. If you are HIV-1 positive, you need to take other medicines with TRUVADA to treat HIV-1. TRUVADA by itself is not a complete treatment for HIV-1. If you have HIV-1 and take only TRUVADA, your HIV-1 may become harder to treat over time. ® Also take certain medicines to treat hepatitis B infection.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION What is the most important information I should know about TRUVADA for PrEP? Before taking TRUVADA for PrEP: ® You must be HIV-negative before you start taking TRUVADA for PrEP. You must get tested to make sure that you do not already have HIV-1. Do not take TRUVADA to reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 unless you are confirmed to be HIV-negative. ® Many HIV-1 tests can miss HIV-1 infection in a person who has recently become infected. If you have flu-like symptoms, you could have recently become infected with HIV-1. Tell your healthcare provider if you had a flu-like illness within the last month before starting or at any time while taking TRUVADA for PrEP. Symptoms of new HIV-1 infection include tiredness, fever, joint or muscle aches, headache, sore throat, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, night sweats, and/or enlarged lymph nodes in the neck or groin. While taking TRUVADA for PrEP: ® You must continue to use safer sex practices. Just taking TRUVADA for PrEP may not keep you from getting HIV-1. ® You must stay HIV-negative to keep taking TRUVADA for PrEP: ® Get tested for HIV-1 at least every 3 months. ® If you think you were exposed to HIV-1, tell your healthcare provider right away. ® To further help reduce your risk of getting HIV-1: ® Know your HIV status and the HIV status of your partners. ® Get tested for other sexually transmitted infections. Other infections make it easier for HIV to infect you. ® Get information and support to help reduce risky sexual behavior, such as having fewer sex partners. ® Do not miss any doses of TRUVADA. Missing doses may increase your risk of getting HIV-1 infection. ® If you do become HIV-1 positive, you need more medicine than TRUVADA alone to treat HIV-1. TRUVADA by itself is not a complete treatment for HIV-1. If you have HIV-1 and take only TRUVADA, your HIV-1 may become harder to treat over time. TRUVADA can cause serious side effects: ® Worsening of hepatitis B (HBV) infection. TRUVADA is not approved to treat HBV. If you have HBV and stop taking TRUVADA, your HBV may suddenly get worse. Do not stop taking TRUVADA without first talking to your healthcare provider, as they will need to monitor your health.

What are the other possible side effects of TRUVADA for PrEP? Serious side effects of TRUVADA may also include: ® Kidney problems, including kidney failure. Your healthcare provider may do blood tests to check your kidneys before and during treatment with TRUVADA. If you develop kidney problems, your healthcare provider may tell you to stop taking TRUVADA. ® Too much lactic acid in your blood (lactic acidosis), which is a serious but rare medical emergency that can lead to death. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get these symptoms: weakness or being more tired than usual, unusual muscle pain, being short of breath or fast breathing, stomach pain with nausea and vomiting, cold or blue hands and feet, feel dizzy or lightheaded, or a fast or abnormal heartbeat. ® Severe liver problems, which in rare cases can lead to death. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you get these symptoms: skin or the white part of your eyes turns yellow, dark “tea-colored” urine, light-colored stools, loss of appetite for several days or longer, nausea, or stomach-area pain. ® Bone problems, including bone pain, softening, or thinning, which may lead to fractures. Your healthcare provider may do tests to check your bones. Common side effects in people taking TRUVADA for PrEP are stomach-area (abdomen) pain, headache, and decreased weight. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effects that bother you or do not go away.

What should I tell my healthcare provider before taking TRUVADA for PrEP? ® All your health problems. Be sure to tell your healthcare provider if you have or have had any kidney, bone, or liver problems, including hepatitis. ® If you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if TRUVADA can harm your unborn baby. If you become pregnant while taking TRUVADA for PrEP, talk to your healthcare provider to decide if you should keep taking TRUVADA. ® If you are breastfeeding (nursing) or plan to breastfeed. Do not breastfeed. If you become HIV-positive, HIV can be passed to the baby in breast milk. ® All the medicines you take, including prescription and over-thecounter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements. TRUVADA may interact with other medicines. Keep a list of all your medicines and show it to your healthcare provider and pharmacist when you get a new medicine. ® If you take certain other medicines with TRUVADA, your healthcare provider may need to check you more often or change your dose. These medicines include certain medicines to treat hepatitis C (HCV) infection. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.FDA.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Please see Important Facts about TRUVADA for PrEP including important warnings on the following page.


I’m courageous, not careless. I know who I am. And I make choices that fit my life. TRUVADA for PrEP™ is a once-daily prescription medicine that can help reduce the risk of getting HIV-1 when taken every day and used together with safer sex practices. ® TRUVADA for PrEP is only for adults who are at high risk of getting HIV through sex. ® You must be HIV-negative before you start taking TRUVADA for PrEP.

Ask your doctor about your risk of getting HIV-1 infection and if TRUVADA for PrEP may be right for you. Learn more at truvada.com

THE PERRY HOTEL

in Key West

ll of us need to take a vacation every once in a while to get some rest and break away from the stress of our daily lives. The Perry Hotel in Key West is a great destination to enjoy a relaxing staycation and delicious dining. This new 100-room boutique hotel opened its doors in May of this year on the private, brand new state-of-the-art 220slip Stock Island Marina in Key West, which is the largest deep water marina in the Florida Keys. Key West is open for business and welcoming back tourists from around the world, after having recuperated from the impact of Hurricane Irma. The Perry Hotel's design was inspired by the industrial history of Stock Island, blending smooth wood finishes with rustic metal details and paying homage to Stock Island's iconic maritime heritage. Key West's working boatyards, fishing fleets and marinas are reflected in the hotel's interior design by combining sharp, rugged elements with warm, ocean-inspired touches, which honor the history of working fishermen who sought refuge from the weather in Stock Island's Safe Harbor. The Perry's guest rooms are spacious and have private balconies and relaxing waterfront views. You can also dine at The Perry's two "boat-to-table" seafood-driven restaurants, Matt's Stock Island Kitchen and Bar and The Salty Oyster Dockside Bar and Grill. These delicious eateries offer classic Key West comfort food with innovative culinary twists.

DESTINATIONS


During my stay at The Perry Hotel, I relaxed poolside by its marina, enjoyed delicious dining at both of its restaurants while sipping on yummy craft cocktails, and experienced a couple of fun adventures which included paddleboard yoga with Lazy Dog tours and a Namaste Eco Tours' snorkeling trip on a sailboat. I also ventured out for dinner at Hogfish Bar & Grill, a true locals spot in Stock Island that specializes in fresh seafood straight from the local boats, and Thirsty Mermaid, a delicious Key West eatery that features fresh local seafood, a broad selection of oysters from the East and West Coasts, and a full raw bar. Staying at The Perry Hotel allows you to take the hotel's shuttle into Key West and experience everything the City has to offer, and then return to the serenity and relaxation of a beautiful boutique hotel with excellent food and beverage offerings.

Troy Talpas: The Perry opened this May on the private 220-slip Stock Island Marina just minutes from downtown Key West, with an inI sat down with two key members of The Perry Hotel's staff to learn more about the hotel and its dustrial-inspired design that pays homage to the restaurants, General Manager Troy Talpas and Executive Chef Kalen Fortuna. area's fishing history, telling the story of a bygone era where shrimpers and fisherman were the only ones frequenting Stock Island. Today, it's becoming a haven for the modern traveler who's in search of a sophisticated escape that still celebrates Key West's local roots. RC: What differentiates The Perry from its competitors? TT: The Perry's marina-front location is set apart from the noise and crowds of Key West, its modern, industrial design, and food and beverage that goes far beyond that of your average hotel restaurant make our property really stand out as a trendsetter within the local community. The majorities of our excursion partners are based right out of the Stock Island Marina, so the experiences we're able to offer are very local and can be curated to suit each and every type of traveler.

RC: What are The Perry's main amenities? TT: In addition to spacious guest rooms with private balconies and waterfront views, The Perry features two seafood-driven restaurants – Matt's Stock Island Kitchen & Bar and The Salty Oyster Bar & Grill, a pool deck with two fire pits, shuttle to Old Town Key West, on-site parking, and direct marina access. Within the 42-acre Stock Island Marina Village complex, our guests also have access to two dog parks, local artist studios, additional restaurants and a soon-to-open distillery. RC: Describe The Perry's design to our readers. TT: The Perry's award-winning architecture and design represent the iconic industrial maritime heritage from which Stock Island has developed with a nod to Key West's tradition of working waterfronts, fishing fleets and marinas. The property's interior design blends sharp, rugged elements with warm, ocean-inspired touches to evoke the story of fishermen who once sought refuge in Safe Harbour. Blaire Warner of the Denver-based design firm, and Johnson Nathan Strohe designed the interior public spaces. The South Florida-based design firm, Casa Conde & Associates, designed our guest rooms.

RC: Describe the guest rooms at The Perry. TT: The Perry features 100 guest rooms and suites with private balconies and waterfront views. Rooms feature nautically inspired artwork handmade by local artists and top-of-theline, eco-friendly in-room products. Some of our suites have balconies so spacious they can double as an event or meeting space. We also have pet-friendly rooms that feature amenities like direct outside access along with outdoor showers to make traveling and enjoying Key West with your pup easier and more enjoyable. RC: Describe The Perry in three words. TT: Industrial, intimate and destination-driven. RC: What do you think guests enjoy most about staying at The Perry? TT: The ability to experience Key West and Stock Island from an authentic, local perspective and having a tranquil escape that still offers easy access to destination attractions. Guests also always rave about the cuisine at Matt's and Salty Oyster. Our restaurants attract the local market as well. I can't tell you how many times we've heard guests say that our food is so much better than the hotel restaurants they're used to. RC: What tours does The Perry offer for guests? TT: We work with more than a dozen local excursion partners to offer everything from snorkeling, sailing and scuba diving to kayaking eco-tours, stand-up paddleboarding excursions and any kind of fishing trip your heart desires.

RC: Describe the marina to our readers and explain how comprehensive it is. TT: Stock Island Marina Village is a newly developed private marina. With 220 slips and state-of-the-art floating docks, it's the largest deep-water marina in the Florida Keys, with the ability to accommodate vessels up to 300 feet in length. All marina reservations include dockage, water, pump-out and access to amenities that offer guests an authentic Stock Island experience with all the comforts of home. Our marina guests have access to amenities that include private bathhouses, laundry facilities, an organic community garden, dog parks, a fully-equipped fitness center, a Captain's Lounge with leather seating and flat-screen TVs, and frequent complimentary shuttle service to downtown Key West.

RC: How does the marina enhance what The Perry offers guests? TT: Our marina-front location allows us to offer excursions that leave right from our docks, which is a huge benefit for guests who stay with us. Excursion partners such as Namaste Eco Tours and Sail When & If are more than just our partners, they are our friends and the crux of the local Stock Island community. When they're not out on the water, guests can walk along the marina to admire vessels ranging from the small sleeper boats that line Coconut Row to celebrity-owned mega yachts. This also offers our guests the opportunity to rub elbows with locals, many of which live aboard houseboats in our marina. This creates a true sense of community for an authentic destination-focused getaway.


KALEN FORTUNA Rafa Carvajal: Tell us about the two restaurants at The Perry: Matt's Stock Island Kitchen & Bar and Salty Oyster Dockside Bar & Grill. Kalen Fortuna: Matt's Stock Island Kitchen & Bar is our full-service restaurant located at The Perry Hotel Key West. Matt's features an awesome indoor bar and an outdoor lounge area with seating around two fire pits that overlooks our waterfront marina, as well as indoor and outdoor restaurant seating along our boat-lined waterfront. The dining room is inspired by Stock Island's fishing history with a mix of reclaimed farm wood walls, concrete and reclaimed teak wood floors and industrial metals. Matt's also features an open kitchen and raw bar. Seats in front of this open kitchen area have quickly become popular, as they give guests a chance to dine while interacting with our culinary team. The Salty Oyster Dockside Bar & Grill is a casual outdoor bar and grill with seats right along the marina. It's a great gathering place for both guests and locals – you can watch boats going in and out of the marina while enjoying great food, craft beer and cocktails. The wrap-around bar is a great spot to kick back with friends have an ice-cold draft, watch sporting events on our large TVs, or listen to live music.

PHOTOS PROVIDED BY THE PERRY HOTEL

RC: What type of cuisine can diners enjoy at each restaurant? KF: Matt's features a menu of American coastal comfort food with an emphasis on local seafood. We pull seafood right off the boats as they dock – it doesn't get fresher than that! We also have an incredible raw bar selection, including our signature Admiral Tower served out of a metal tackle box, in addition to Key West classics with a twist like our Key Lime Dusted Fried Chicken. Dishes from ceviches and crudos to smoked BBQ ribs are meant to be shared, so everyone can get a taste of the many flavors. At Salty Oyster, we're known for our fresh Peel & Eat Key West Pink Shrimp and other great waterfront bar bites. Everything we use at both restaurants is made from scratch, down to our signature "Squealer Burger," which has cheese baked right into the patty and people love it! RC: What are the three most popular dishes with diners at Matt's Stock Island Kitchen & Bar, and at Salty Oyster Dockside Bar & Grill? KF: At Matt's, I would have to say our Key Lime Dusted Fried Chicken; Crab Beignets with old bay aioli – a huge favorite among locals; and our signature Clam Chowder, which is filled with heaps of fresh clams. Matt's breakfast menu is an amazing way to start your day with favorites like our Lobster Eggs Benedict, Banana Bread Pancakes, and our ever popular Guava & Cream Cheese French Toast. At Salty Oyster, definitely "The Squealer," local Blackened Mahi Sandwich and our Peel & Eat Key West Pinks or Shrimp & Oyster Combo.

RC: Why do you think diners love those dishes the most? KF: I think the guests can really taste our commitment to freshness and flavors. We want people to relax and have a gathering with friends. Our seafood arrives every morning and we are sourcing the best produce we can find. RC: What are your personal top three favorite dishes at each restaurant? Why? KF: I love The Squealer. We use a house blend of three meats, cheese and bacon, and make a crispy, griddled burger that oozes cheese when you bite into it. It's crazy good. I also really love our Fried Chicken. We do a killer buttermilk dill brine, then use a pressure fryer to get really juicy meat with a crispy outside, while ensuring the chicken stays tender and juicy. The citrus dust on top brings it to a whole new level. You also have to try our Snapper Tacos. We do a 'minuta' cut on the sapper leaving the skin and tail on. It's served with tons of cilantro, avocado, Poblano sauce and taco toppings. Grab a grilled corn tortilla and build it the way you like it.

RC: Tell us about the cocktail program at Matt's Stock Island Kitchen & Bar and your wine selection. KF: We have put a major emphasis on the beverage program at both restaurants. We have an extensive craft menu of both cocktails and beers. We offer 24 different tap beers on the property, and we are excited to be announcing our own proprietary craft beers being brewed only for us arriving this December. We have a craft cocktail menu at Matt's made with the freshest ingredients; our Key Lime Martini and Hemingway Daiquiri are a couple of examples. We have a tap wine system with high quality wines by the glass served in the most eco-friendly way. Some of our features are Chalk Hill Chardonnay, Cliff Lede Sauvignon Blanc, Farmstead Cabernet Sauvignon and Saintsbury Pinot Noir, to name a few. We have a broad wine list for bottles and a great selection of champagnes and sparkling wines from Veuve Clicquot, Laurent Perrier Rose and Moet Chandon Brut.
