The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood is hoping to build a foundation for creative construction in children and adults, brick by brick. In conjunction with the local opening this month of The Art of the Brick museum tour by famed LEGO artist Nathan Sawaya, the Art and Culture Center is inviting the community to participate in its LEGO Creation Challenge. South Florida residents ages 6 and older are encouraged to use their own LEGO pieces and their imagination to create a modular masterpiece. All individual and team entries will be displayed in the Centers galleries Aug. 8-10, with prizes awarded to the winners. The competition would seem a natural community counterpart of The Art of the Brick show, the first major museum exhibition in the U.S. to focus exclusively on the use of the popular building blocks as an art medium. The Hollywood exhibit will feature 23 awe-inspiring sculptures by New York artist Sawaya, known as The Picasso of LEGOS, who takes the colorful plastic blocks to new heights with life-size and larger whimsical creations. Sawaya, 33, was a lawyer whod been hooked on LEGOS since childhood, when his LEGO city took over his familys living room. In 2002, he started building large-scale sculptures in his spare time. After winning a nationwide search for a professional LEGO Master Model Builder in 2004, Sawaya gave up law for LEGO art. Today, his works go for tens of thousands of dollars, and nearly 1 million individual LEGO pieces currently are touring the country as part of the popular museum exhibit. Sawayas talent for elevating the common toy into a fascinating modern art form has met with an enthusiastic response from both children and adults.

Hollywood real estate professional Randy Singer has channeled his unusual night job into a quest to bring stand-up comedy to the downtown arts and entertainment district. Singer is a foreclosure specialist by day and a house emcee at a Boca Raton comedy club by night. He recently started another Hollywood business, Low Brow Entertainment Co., which is launching the Downtown Comedy Fest this month. Award-winning stand-up comedian Eddie Brill, a Hollywood native, will kick off the three-month festival June 13-14. For all that Downtown Hollywood has to offer its eclectic selection of restaurants, pubs and jazz clubs, and arts amenities there isnt a single comedy club to be found. This is the first time standup comedy has been brought downtown, said Singer. But hes taking an untraditional route, hosting his acts at the Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center at 1770 Monroe St. Im trying to bring stand-up comedy out of the club and into the theater, Singer said. Its a different atmosphere. One benefit of the theater setting: No two-drink minimum, he quipped. Singer is hoping to fill the 500-seat theater with fans of Brill, an internationally renowned comedian who has taped more than 100 television shows in six different countries. For the past decade, Brill has worked on the Late Show with David Letterman and serves as the audience warm-up and talent coordinator for the comedians who appear on the show. A three-time MAC (Manhattan Association of Cabarets & Clubs) Award-winner for Best Male Standup Comic, Brills acting credits include films and animated series, and he serves as the consulting editor and humor consultant for Readers Digest. He also started the successful Paper Moon Comedy Club in New York City and, along with notable comedy writer and producer Norman Lear, helped create one of the countrys first college comedy writing departments, at Emerson College in Boston, in 1978. Brill will conduct a comedy workshop during his return this month to his hometown, where he attended McNicol Middle and South Broward High before getting into stand-up comedy in college. It is amazing to come and perform in Hollywood, Brill said. When I am down in Florida with my family and friends, it really grounds me, because these are the people who really know and love me for who I am. Brill and special guest Dwight York will perform at 9 p.m. Fri., June 13 and 8 p.m. Sat., June 14. Tickets are $25 and $20. On July 12, Downtown Comedy Fest will feature Bobby Collins, who has been hailed as the most natural comedian working today (The New York Times) and a perfect fusion of Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis (New York Post). Tickets are $39.50 and $34.50. Wrapping up the series Aug. 15-16 will be Roslane Gholston, better known as Lady Roz G, whose appearances include Comedy Centrals Premium Blend and Jamie Foxxs Laffapalooza, UPNs Showtime at the Apollo, BETs Comic View and NBCs Last Comic Standing. Tickets are $25 and $20. Singer promises the most knee-slapping, rib-tickling, sidesplitting, stand-up comedy available anywhere. But theres also a serious side to the Hollywood businessman, who organizes an annual charity event thats raised more than $100,000 for various causes over the past 10 years. This years fundraiser, S.T.A.R. Comedy Night, will benefit Covenant House Florida, which provides services for runaway, homeless and at-risk youths. Bobby Collins will headline the July 11 event at Hollywood Central Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $100 and $50 and include food and drinks. Giving back is important to Singer, 47, who battled substance abuse problems early in his life. At 17 years old, I was living on a park bench, he recalled. So life has evolved tremendously. Singer managed to overcome his addictions and, after joining a Toastmasters group, his fear of speaking in front of people. I wanted to share my story, he said. The group said, Youre funny. You ought to go on stage. Three years ago, he started performing his stand-up routine at open mic nights. Comedys the most difficult form of speaking, Singer said. You have to control the audience with laughter. Hell serve as the Downtown Comedy Fests host, whose job is to warm up the audience for the comics. I cant be a road comic, said Singer, who has a wife and two kids in addition to a day job. So Im taking this to the next level by hosting my own events.

Tickets are available at www. lowbrowtickets.com or by calling 954-241-0131.

10 The Greater Hollywood Junior Chamber of Commerce is seeking eligible bachelors and bachelorettes to go on the auction bloc for charity. The fourth annual fundraiser, set for July 31 at Nikki Marina at the Diplomat Landing in Hollywood, will feature seven guys and seven gals up for bid along with special date packages donated by local businesses. There is no charge for admission to the event. The Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction promises a good time for a good cause, with proceeds benefiting the Junior Chambers Annual Backto-School Shopping Spree for local underprivileged children. We are bringing sexy back, said Tony Vanchieri, auction chairperson and a vice president of the Junior Chamber of Commerce, also known as the Hollywood Jaycees. Vanchieri should know. At last years Bachelor Auction, he fetched a whopping $380 for a dinner date and sunset cruise. This years auction has a new twist with the addition of bachelorettes. Were trying to kind of pep it up a little this year, said Vanchieri, who noted that bachelorettes generally garner higher bids than bachelors at charity auctions. Were trying to raise as much money as possible for the kids. Last summer, more than 200 people turned out for the auction to bid on 25 bachelors with date packages valued at around $200 apiece. The fundraiser enabled Junior Chamber members to take 75 low-income youngsters to a private opening at Target, where they each were given $100 to shop for school supplies and clothes. Vanchieri and Junior Chamber president Tai Vaz are hoping this years auction will draw an even larger crowd. Their goal is to take at least 100 children on a back-to-school shopping spree. Some local families are just one paycheck away from being homeless, and the Junior Chamber project is more important than ever, especially with social service funding cuts, Vaz said. The people who are really hurt are the ones who need help the most, she said. The need is so high, and its existing in our community. A hundred dollars means a lot. Schools and organizations that will participate in the shopping spree are Hollywood Central Elementary, Driftwood Elementary, McNicol Middle, Attucks Middle, Olsen Middle, The Jubilee Center and Liberia Economic & Social Development Corporation (LES). This is just kind of special to the heart, Vanchieri said of the fundraiser and the good it does for needy children in the community. It touches you. Nikki Marina and Hollywood Discount Liquors are presenting sponsors of the Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction, but additional sponsorships are still needed, as are donations of date packages from area businesses. Sponsors will be featured in all of the events promotional materials. Last years diverse group of bachelors included business executives, doctors, firefighters and police officers, an assistant principal and a bartender. Bachelors and bachelorettes must be at least 18 years old and will participate in a fun interview session during the auction. The Bachelor/Bachelorette Auction will be held from 8:30 to10 p.m. Thurs., July 31 at Nikki Marina, 3660 S. Ocean Dr. in Hollywood. The Junior Chamber also is hosting a Pub Crawl in Downtown Hollywood on Fri., July 25 as a kickoff fundraiser and social function. For more details, visit www. myspace.com/myhollywoodbachelor or www.hollywoodjaycees.org. Businesses or bachelors and bachelorettes that are interested in participating in the auction can call Tony Vanchieri at 954-234-3752 or email managementvp@ hollywoodjaycess.org.

Anyone whos seen me around town recently knows Ive been on a health kick. With the summer practically here, were all thinking about how we can enjoy eating and still don a bathing suit. By feasting on deliciously seasoned protein, veggies, fruit and whole grains, Ive made great strides in the right direction. There are a number of great eateries in our quaint little town where you can dine healthily for reasonable prices. Enjoying them all, below are a few places I found on my healthy, freah and low-cal quest that should please your palates and wallets too. Longstanding popular breakfast spot, the Coral Rose happens to have some of the lowest fat and tasty fare around. If youre hell bent on the usual American fare, even the 2 -2-2 consisting of two pancakes, two eggs, two sausage links or patties ($2.99 before 11 am) offers a choice of whole wheat or buckwheat instead of the more fattening buttermilk version. One recent morning, I dined on grilled fresh Turkey Breast, two eggs (egg whites on request), with whole wheat and fruit homemade bread ($8.75). You can also do what I did and substitute tomatoes (or fruit) for potatoes. Owner Jack Umanskys bread is milk free and once you try his home made breads, youll never go back. There are so many healthy options from Chicken Breast and eggs ($8.75), Omelets ($5.50) with healthy add-ons like Spinach, or Feta, or Tabouli Omelet ($6.95) to the Kaplan Omelet featuring Feta and Spinach ($8.95). But my absolute favorite, and yes -I have it for breakfastis the Gyro Sandwich with Greek Salad. Lean and fresh off the spit, the gyro is fabulously tasty. Add the homemade pita (here I deviate with whole wheat), and a huge Greek salad with Kalamata olives, peppers and feta cheese and for $8.95, its an amazing low cal feast. Best yet,though, if you never tasted Umanskys proud creation: his Homemade Monster Chicken Burger, youre in for a treat. This gargantuan burger is chock full of seasoning and veggies, and shockingly --no grains. Complete with potatoes or salad($7.50 on special), plan on bringing at least half of it home. Owner Robert Borday only opened this sandwich style shop less than six months ago, but the eatery is already well on its way to becoming a Hollywood institution. Born the son of a falafel maker, Borday was raised on secrets of falafel making while his father fine tuned the craft on the streets of Brooklyn., Like father, like son, and after decades of perfecting and selling falafels in Rhode Island, Borday moved the family recipe here to Hollywood. Judging from the lunchtime crowd, its a good thing he did. While falafels carry their own spin, these are deep fried in canola oil, and made of healthy stuff -fresh chickpea cilantro, onion, garlic and spice. Thats probably why these falafel balls are truly the best Ive ever eaten. Those seeking a little bit of the Mediterranean can plunge into the Falafel Fusion Platter, and for only $8.50, you can delight in falafels, homemade humus, Israeli sty le salad Fatoosh, Tahini -free Baba Ganoush (toasted eggplant with lemon juice, parsley, garlic, tomatoes and olive oil), grape leaves and Pita Bread. Best yet, for only $1, you can add Chicken, or Gyro, or for a splurge of 2 bucks more, you can add them both. Those swearing off carbs will be pleased with their unique healthy curio platters like the Grilled Fusion Wraps (all $6.95). My pick was the Chicken Curry Grilled Fusion Wrap with lettuce, tomatoes, mayo, raisons, celery and red peppers, and I was pleased. Had I known that the Buffalo Chicken Grilled Fusion Wrap ($6.95) is not made with deep fried chicken, but rather fresh grilled chicken with buffalo sauce with lettuce, tomatoes, and blue cheese dressing, Id have tried that too. Juicers can delight in the plentiful juice bar with plenty of choices. If Wheat germ is what youre after, youre safe here. And a Rhapsody and Blueberry nonfat yogurt, blueberry and fresh squeezed orange juice smoothie ($3.50) should give anyone an added energy boost. Owned by a couple after my own heart -Caitie OHara and Chris Rainwater, this California style eatery opened less than a year ago, and has already built up a following. Theres a reason. The Hermosa BeachOregon couple spent enough time in my former homeland to know how to cook up Mexican cuisine, and it isnt Tex Mex. Just one look at these clean living surfers and youll trust them with your stomachs. And, since prices are as lean as the fare, theres nothing not to like. From the freshly made Pico de Gallo and fresh cilantro-cream, tomatillo and salsa sauces (of which there are plenty) to the clean taste of chicken and beef, Foster healthy eating habits throughout the summer

Dve & B rs n Ho yw Gae e vite ou Floridians can get a healthy dose of what keeps surfers in business. Fish tacos have never been my thing, but Ive got to hand it to the architect and writer turned restaurateur and chef, the The South Bay ($3) is a keeper. Greaseless but tasty, the grilled MahiMahi smothered in Pico de Gallo and signature sour cream (calorie counters can beg off the sour cream), chock full of cabbage, this dish delivers an inexpensive healthy boost. Fearlessof-fat diners will also welcome South Bays beer battered deep fried twin ($3). Healthy to a fault is The Shorty ($3) Tangy grilled shrimp, shredded lettuce, and avocado topped with pico de gallo. When I was living in the land of Mexican cuisine, I dined almost every morning on machacha and eggs. Here, The Land Lover ($2.50) provides a look into what made me what I am today (whatever that is). Seasoned shredded beef, lettuce served with the pico de gallo & cilantro sour cream. Add some jalapenos and youll know why we love the west coast. And, since they offer beer and wine, its the perfect place to kick back, munch on fresh fried tortillas with limitless salsa, have a few tacos, and drink till you see the side walls painted wave mural start to sway. Our very own Jen tipped me off to this little gem. Beware: the address reads 2900 block of Stirling but its further west in the Deli Den strip mall. The fast food style eatery offers fare practically tailor made for my Sonoma Diet eliminating white flour and fattening choices. It may be quick, but the good news is-its not greasy. I started with the Old Fashioned homemade Hummus ($3.95) topped aesthetically with paprika and surrounded by whole wheat pita triangles. Tasty and satisfying, this is a perfect little snack to take off the edge of anyones hunger. Hearty Paninis range from $6.95 to $8.25 and theyre also available in a whole grain version. A menu clad with Healthy wraps, Signature Salads and Hearty Paninis, you can never go wrong. Deliciously grilled in olive oil, the flavorful Stirling Salmon ($8.25) Panini with roasted garlic, pesto sauce, guacamole, sliced tomatoes and spinach was so filling that I brought home 3/4 of it. Even in a leftover box, the sandwich looked so inviting, that my husband opened the refrigerator and remarked, Wow, can I have that? Part of why I was full so quickly is another reason to visit the petite, airy restaurant the healthy drinks. I drank a Splenda sweetened lemonade with fresh raspberries and pineapple juice, and it was remarkably wonderful ($4.50). But all of the Smoothies, Fresh Squeezed Juices and Refreshing Lemonades sound amazing from the Mint lemonade with fresh squeezed lemon juice, orange and pineapple juice and mint leaves ($4.50) to the Liquid salad ($4.95). The way business is booming, its lucky this little newcomer has a patio, because in the very near future, Big Squeeze is apt to become a Bigger Squeeze.

Did you know that you can learn a lot about proper eating by observing the eating habits of newborns, and even young children for that matter? Heres what I recently realized during one of my 5weekold daughters 3 a.m. feeding sessions: 1. Newborns eat every 3 hours like clockwork. Nope ...dont have to worry about babies skipping breakfast, or any meal for that matter, and if you havent heard 3-4 hour meal frequency is one of the best ways to turbo-charge metabolism and control cravings. 2. Newborns stop eating when they are full. It doesnt matter how tasty the milk is or even how much is available, when a babys belly is full, the baby stops eating. 3. Babies are very good at differentiating physical hunger form emotional hunger, and they eat STRICTlY to satisfy physical hunger. It doesnt matter what a baby is FEELING in the moment, if they arent hungry, they will not eat. So what are the lessons you can learn about healthy eating habits from a newborn. 1. You are born with an internal clock that lets you know EXACTLY when you should eat. By the way, 3-4 hours are not just some arbitrary guidelines to make eating chorelike, that is approximately how long it takes to digest a meal (assuming we do not over or under eat.) 2. You are born with an innate understanding of HOW MUCH you should eat to meet the PHYSICAL demands of your body. If you are in tune with your body and really LISTEN to the signals it sends you, you will never need to measure your food or count calories again. 3. You are born with an innate ability to differentiate between physical and emotional hunger. Emotions serve many purposes in our lives, none of which include, determining when, what or how much you should eat. The purpose of food, my friends, is to satisfy our bodys physical needs, not our emotional ones.

a whopping 23,000 people to the Stamford Museum in Connecticut during a six-week period. Were gearing up for a huge attendance, said Jane Hart, the Art and Culture Centers curator of exhibitions. I think were going to get a lot of people of all ages. The Center already has field trip bookings for 1,000 youngsters from various summer camp programs. And we havent even done our main mailing yet, Hart said. The Art of the Brick exhibit will run June 6 through Aug. 10. Sawaya will be on hand at the opening reception and at a special childrens opening June 7. A public reception and awards presentation for the Centers LEGO Creation Challenge will be held at 1 p.m. Sun., Aug. 10. Prizes for Most Creative, Most Colorful and Most Complex will be awarded in four categories: ages 6 to 10, ages 11 to 17, ages 18 and up, and teams of any age. Entries must be original works constructed of genuine LEGO bricks, elements and pieces, without the use of kits, and may not exceed 36 36 36 inches. Entries must be brought to the Center, secured and ready to be displayed, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Wed., Aug. 6. An official registration form is available at the Center or on its website. The competition is open to the first 50 entries, with additional pieces accepted if space permits. All accepted entries will be on display in the Centers galleries Aug. 8-10. Each contestant and a guest will receive complimentary admission to the Center during the LEGO Creation Challenge exhibition. Hart said the competition provides a natural opportunity to foster appreciation of The Art of the Brick exhibit through a community-based activity. While Sawayas art serves a public purpose, his LEGO sculptures symbolize a private journey. These works are very personal to me, since they reflect my growth as an artist as I strove to discover my creative identity, he said. The museum exhibit is accessible because it engages the child in all of us while simultaneously illuminating sophisticated and complex concepts. Hart said Sawayas followers are as intrigued by the man an unlikely artist who left the law to build a career out of LEGOS as they are by his creations. His story has absolutely captivated people, Hart said. I think its also inspiring for kids, that they could turn a passion into something that could similarly be a success. Exhibition hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at 1650 Harrison St. Admission is $7 for adults; $4 for students, seniors and children ages 4 to 13; and free to Center members and children under 4. During the month of June, members of Broward attractions and museums participating in Broward Attractions and Museums Month (BAMM) also are admitted at no charge. Free parking is available. Because of the anticipated popularity of the exhibit, group tours are encouraged to book well in advance. The opening reception for Nathan Sawaya: The Art of the Brick will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. Fri., June 6, with a childrens opening from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sat., June 7. There is no charge for Center members. The cost for nonmembers is $10 for adults and $5 for children. A LEGO activity area will be open during the receptions and most field trips. For more information on The Art of the Brick exhibit or the LEGO Creative Challenge, call the ACCH at 954-921-3274 or visit www. ArtAndCultureCenter.org. It took me nearly 100 hours to create this heavy heart, weighing in at 35 pounds. The typical human heart weighs about 10 ounces, so this heart is a bit heavier, explains Sawaya.

AFS (formerly the American Field Service), the leading international high school student exchange program, needs families to host high school students for an academic year or six months. Students arrive in August. All kinds of families can host-two-parent households with young children or teenagers, single-parent families, families with adopted children, foster parents, as well as couples and single people who do not have children or who have grown children. One of the most important characteristics of a host family is being eager and excited to share your life and activities while providing the same kind of care, support, and comfort as you would to your own child. AFS students come from more than 40 countries and represent many different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. Local AFS volunteers enroll students in high school and support students and their families to help both gain the most from their experience.

The Greater Hollywood YMCA Family Center celebrated a new addition to its growing services and family options, the eagerly awaited new swimming pool. The occasion was highlighted by the appearance of many commissioners and people responsible for bringing the dream of this pool to reality. There is so much going on today at the Greater Hollywood Family YMCA, as evidenced by all the activity around us, said Dick Blattner, Hollywood City Commissioner indicating a spinning class in the background, as well as basketball game in the gym and various other classes and sports that are part of the YMCA on a daily basis. Blattner chaired the capital campaign to raise funds for the pool. The demand for services, programs and facilities is growing, and we are happy to bring the community this state-of-the-art swimming pool. The new pool is a 25-yard, 6-lane lap pool with a family lagoon. The YMCA of Broward County is dedicated to reducing drowning and to that end, it provides swim lessons and water safety instruction to children at the Hollywood Family Center through its affiliation with SWIM Central. Housed at Broward County Parks and Recreation, SWIM Central has become the Countys chief coordinating agency for water safety instruction and awareness. It maintains the most comprehensive database in Florida, tracking every single swimming pool and program in the county. Drowning is the leading cause of death in children under the age of 5 in South Florida. This new pool is another element in our on-going mission to reduce and ultimately prevent drowning deaths, said Sheryl Woods, president and CEO of the YMCA of Broward County. The capital campaign raised more than $1.5 million to help establish the new pool. Additional renovations at the Greater Hollywood YMCA Family Center include a wellness center, spin studio, child watch and additional preschool classrooms, with locker room renovation currently underway. YMCA of Broward County attributes the success of the new pool opening to the generosity and dedication of the community, its employees, the Broward City Commissioners and a Swim Central Grant of $850,000. The facility serves more than 6,500 individuals through membership and programs. We are extremely proud of the YMCA and the positive impact it continues to make on the community, said Blattner.
