Past-featured participants have included Venus and Serena Willams, Matt Lauer, By Jamie Salen The Pineapple Staff WriterYou make a living by what you get, but you make a life by what you give. -Winston Churchill Delray Beach has developed a soaring reputation for its myriad of colorful venues offering the community culinary delights to match even the most sophisticated metropolitan dining districts. While our fair city has prospered since becoming a dining destination, as good old Churchill so austerely reminds us, success is truly measured by what we give back rather than by what we receive. One undisputable example of this philosophy at work comes in the form of an artsy eatery, named for the famous French art movement developed in the early twentieth century. Dada, located on the historical strip of N. Swinton Avenue, is not only known for its delectable menu and unique ambiance, the popular spot is also recognized for its charitable endeavors as well as its unwavering support of the local arts community here in Delray Beach. Opened in 2000 by President Rodney Mayo, Vice President Scott Frielich and Head Chef Bruce Feingold, Dada was rst intended as a coffee shop and artist hangout in the space now occupied by Brus Room. As Feingold tells it, Rodney Mayo had just left a visit to the proposed real estate sight and decided to walk to Docs All American for a quick burger. It was on his stroll that he spotted the nearly 100 year old house on the corner of N. Swinton Ave and 1st Street and knew immediately it Continued on page 6Chris Evert/Raymond James Pro-Celebrity Tennis ClassicContinued on page 3The Miracle League is a charitable organization that provides children with mental and/or physical challenges an opportunity to play baseball as a team member in an organized league.

WELLNESS FESTIVAL PLANNED FOR DELRAY Delray Beach, FL., Delray Beach, recently voted the most fun small town in the US, also has a more serious side where tness, wellness and a health-oriented lifestyle are a way of life for the thousands of visitors and tourists who ock to downtown Delray Beach each year. One of those visitors and now part-time resident, Bob Lipp, a business marketing executive who has promoted tness events and enjoys an active lifestyle decided that Delray was the perfect place for a Wellness Festival. His concept, also caught the attention of former Delray mayor Jeff Perlman, and the two created WellFest Delray 2013 (, an event scheduled for March 7, 2013, where the Expo will be held in Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square in the vintage gymnasium. Wellness is an all encompassing term, which speaks to a lifestyle that recognizes the importance of staying t, eating right, protecting the environment, and promoting mental and physical well-being, said Lipp. Its about feeding the body and the mind. When Jeff and I imagined an event that would support the diverse elements of Delray Beach and build on the communitys feel good vibe, wellness just made sense. Currently, the WellFest team, which now includes Sara Sloan, a Delray visitor and personal trainer who recently made Delray her permanent home, is talking to potential exhibitors and sponsors while considering other activities in nearby venues such as healthy cooking demonstrations, tness and/or yoga exhibitions, expert speakers on health and nutrition, as well as exercise and meditation forums, and more. The WellFest Delray 2013 website, is currently set up to provide exhibitors and sponsors with instant information on exhibiting at the Old School Square gymnasium Expo, sponsoring the Expo, or sponsoring a custom event.

PAGE 6 T he Delray Beach Pineapple was the perfect site for his newest venture. After coaxing by Feingold, the decision was made to move beyond the original coffee shop concept and use the converted home as a full scale restaurant. There are many things that set this particular eatery apart from so many others in downtown Delray Beach. For one thing, Dada is quite famous for serving their full menu until 2 am, 7 nights a week. The venue also boasts one of the tastiest menus in the neighborhood (my mouths waters just thinking of the famous Dada Dates). After learning of their countless works in the community, I am convinced this restaurant is much more than a fabulous menu in an extraordinary locale. Many may not know that the place to be on Thanksgiving is not in fact crowded around the dining room table with your extended family. In the spirit of truly giving back, Dada began their own holiday tradition in which every dollar earned from the sales of their Thanksgiving feast is donated directly to feed the homeless through Joshua House and Lords Place. We felt it was a creative way to encourage the community to do something to give back. Spending your Thanksgiving holiday at Dada is charity in itself, explains Feingold. While Thanksgiving only comes around once a year, the very special Tata-tini provides guests with a way be charitable for the entire month of October. This very special cocktail is part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds from the inspired martini are donated to the cause. Dada will also participate in the annual Key to the Cure event held at Saks Fifth Avenue to benet breast cancer research at Jupiter Medical Center. Over the last year, this unique restaurant has participated in a number of other off-site charity events that bring awareness and resources to South Florida causes. This past July, Chef Bruce Feingold represented Dada and Delray Beach at the 25th Anniversary Year of Share our Strength, Taste of the Nation in Miami. The special event featured the best local chefs and their fare in order to raise money to end world hunger. Dada also participates in the March of Dimes Signature Chefs & Wine Extravaganza each year in support of healthier babies. This month (October), Dada will be a part of the American Lung Association benefit, Savor, Sips, Suds & Spirits, held at Old School Square. They are also in the process of planning a fundraising event for Bethesda Hospital Pediatric Wing with Spa Eleven. While all of these creative charity events provide a benet to the community, Dada has also been known to step in on a moments notice in support of communities around the world who have suffered a major disaster. This Delray Beach establishment donated $24,000 to Haiti after their tragic earthquake and they also donated signicant funds to victims of the tsunami in Japan. While bringing awareness to great charitable causes as well as fundraising for them is admirable in itself, Dada also makes a real effort to support our communitys quest to build a lasting economy in arts and culture. Not only does the restaurant host local musicians, poets, comedians and performance artists weekly, they have also hosted hair shows and fashion shows. There are so many types of expressive art out there and some are more neglected than others. We want Dada to be a truly creative space and I am really proud of a lot of the artistry that has come out of here over the years, explains Feingold. You dont have to catch a performance to appreciate the arts at this venue. Feingold and his partners have even offered up their walls to up-and-coming fine artists in the area. What better way to encourage and support local fine artists than to provide them with a place to exhibit, says Feingold. What impressed me the most about this local Delray Beach restaurant is their dedication to supporting what this community believes is important. With the overwhelming success of the dining industry in downtown Delray Beach, not every establishment proves its devotion to the health and strength of our community. Sometimes with success comes complacency and it becomes easy to lose sight of those around you who are still in need. After 12 years of continued success, Dada still chooses to give back to the community and there is no doubt that it is their integrity and willingness to share that will keep them at the top.GIVING BACK continued from page 1 What better way to encourage and support local ne artists than to provide them with a place to exhibit.

PAGE 10 T he Delray Beach Pineapple dine out Atlantic Avenues only rooftop dining experience will soon offer guests a brand new view: from the rst oor. Buddha Sky Bar is expanding their infamous Asian Fusion restaurant to 10,000 square feet with a threemonth renovation that includes the rst and second oors of 217 East Atlantic Avenue. To be completed by early November, the new rst oor space, aptly titled Buddha Garden, will allow the restaurant to serve more Buddha fans than ever. After being open for just over a year and seeing the amount of success and devoted customers weve attained, we felt as though this was the perfect time to take Buddha Sky Bar to the next level, said owner, Christopher Licata. We want to enhance the guests experience, give them something new and continue to exceed their expectations when it comes to unparalleled cuisine and one-of-a-kind atmosphere. PDT International is the design company behind Buddha Garden. Their plans for the space include a new sushi and sake bar, waterfall and living walls. Buddha Garden will also offer indoor and outdoor bars, including one that opens up to Atlantic Avenue. Guests can expect more of a late night lounge feel on Fridays and Saturdays as well. Nature inspired the design of this Chinese-Japanese fusion restaurant, where many details are tied to one of the four elements of nature: Earth, Water, Air & Fire, said Senior Designer at PDT International, Joy Lynskey. Red, gold and chocolate combine with textural materials of Asian inuence to create a warm environment that coordinates with the Buddha Sky Bar upstairs while allowing the Buddha Garden to have its own special identity. In addition to the 96 seats that the intimate third oor currently holds, Buddha Sky Bars second oor will be open for private parties, hosting 110 people in total. There will be customizable conference rooms available with direct access to multimedia, leaving the space open to corporate or holiday events from groups of 8 to 60. Buddha Sky Bar prides itself on providing an exceptional experience for parties of any size and look forward to the expansion of their corporate event offerings. Buddha Garden will seat 120 guests and offer a completely different atmosphere than Buddha Sky Bar, while serving the same cuisine that earned them Open Table Diners Choice Awards for Top Asian Restaurant in Southeast Florida and Palm Beach County Hot Spot. Weve got some incredible staff and a concept that you cant nd anywhere else in the area, General manager, Damian Burke said. Its the same great experience and food, but the expansion will offer guests minimal wait time, if any at all. Second oor renovations are expected to be complete by the beginning of October, while Buddha Garden will be nished by early November.

The Food Beat is also building the most unique and powerful food and entertainment search engine, all in Hi Denition Video. Its all food...all Delray Beach...all fun. Editors Note: The Unknown Diner provides Food Beat viewers with the denitive approval of Delray Beach restaurants. Due to events that took place with an organized crime ring in Paris, France in 2011, he disguises his identity and refuses to speak. Despite his egocentricities and mysterious mannerisms, The Unknown Diner is revered for his discriminating pallet. When asked to write a review for a recent visit to Dada, he declined, but allowed us (The Food Beat) to view his legal pad containing the notes he took during his dining experience. We have taken those notes, and added our interpretations to provide this review. Target Restaurant: Dada 52 N. Swinton Ave, Delray Beach 561.330.3232 Open 7 days a week: 5pm to 2 am Unknown Diner: Atmosphere... Heterogeneous The Food Beat: UD recognizes Dada as a place where unique forces come together to provide a festive and somewhat different dining ambiance. The outdoor seating area is unlike any in the area, complete with brick pavers, trees and lanterns. The house turned restaurant is cozy with a generous dose of hip. Unknown Diner: Staff... Idiomatic The Food Beat: Apparently, Unknown is pleased with the way Dada allows its staff to be who they are. Friendly and skilled comes in a wide range of styles at Dada, thus adding to the welcoming ambiance. He did not feel out of place or feel unwelcome at any time during his visit. (This is not usually the case) Unknown Diner: Service...Bonhomie The Food Beat: Unknown thought the level of service at Dada was exceptional and gracious. His waiter, Jason, was knowledgeable, respectful and prompt. Unknown Diner: Menu... Promethean The Food Beat: He could have easily said pure genius, but his arrogance prompted the use of yet another word with an alarming number of syllables. Not only is the Dada menu diverse, it is priced so anyone can enjoy it. The appetizers often serve as a meal in themselves...the baked brie and the Ahi Tuna Tartar are house favorites and Unknown is particularly fond of the Dada dates wrapped in bacon. Choosing his entree proved to be a conundrum. Unknown had visited Dadas website prior to arrival and had narrowed his choices to four amazing dishes; Habanera Glazed Salmon, Crab Cakes, Desi Burger or Beas Meatloaf. Just before he was ready to make his selection, his waiter Jason made a most unusual suggestion. You should really try the Butternut Squash Ravioli. Rarely would Unknown consider a dish vegetarians would eat, but he had come to trust Jason and took a leap of faith. He wasnt disappointed. The ravioli was tender and slightly sweet with a rich cream sauce that screamed opulent. The dish also featured freshly steamed asparagus that proved to be the perfect companion for this sensational dish. After nishing every last bite, Jason told him the dish could also be served with chicken and bacon. This too little too late information had a negative impact on Jasons tip. Unknown Diner: Bar... Damn! The Food Beat: At last. Unknown drops his pretentiousness and tells it like it is. He has just taken his rst sip of Dadas signature Mojito, made with fresh mint and muddled to perfection. Dada has a full bar and the nest Mojitos and Long Island Ice Teas in north America. Unknown Diner: Intangibles... Fanciful The Food Beat: Unknown loved the fact that Dada serves its full menu until 2:00 AM every night of the week. He was also impressed with the nightly entertainment ranging from live music to poetry. Unknown Diner: Bottom Line... Fork up. Way up. The Food Beat: The Unknown Diner highly recommends Dada. Log on to to see the Unknown Diners visit to Dada. Make sure you stick around to the end to hear the incredible ghost story as told by Dada management.

DELRAY BEACH, FL. On Wednesday, October 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Maxs Harvest in Delray Beach, Art Works 4 Food will be the rst not for prot organization in Florida to utilize Augmented Reality to bring art to life while also bringing the awareness and funds needed to ght the childrens hunger epidemic in Palm Beach County. In recognition of National Food Day and in support of the organization he founded, Anthony V. Pugliese, III, will merge one of his own paintings into a new reality Augmented Reality. This will be one of the rst Augmented Experiences in Florida. Augmented Reality, a cutting edge technology, is the layering of digital information onto real life objects and places. These digital content layers are then viewable with computers or smartphones and may take the form of text, video, or images. According to Pugliese, This new technology blurs the line between whats real and whats computer-generated by enhancing what we see, hear and feel. Guests who join us at Maxs Grill on October 24th will experience my artwork in a new reality and get a chance to help feed the children in our community who go hungry each and every day. Pugliese encourages attendees to download the free app at www.artworks4food. org and to bring their iPhone, iPad or Android, as this is an interactive art event. Event attendees will also be treated to delicious food and drink, which is taken to the level of its own art form when prepared by Chef Chris Miracolo of Maxs Harvest in Delray Beach. Maxs Harvest is proud to support the efforts of Art Works 4 Food on National Food Day and hopes that their efforts will bring awareness of the nationwide celebration and movement for healthy, affordable and sustainable food, says Miracolo. Palm Beach County has witnessed a nearly 200% increase since 2009 in the number of people receiving food stamps and more than 50% of its children are on a free or reduced lunch program. One in three households with incomes less than or equal to $35,000 ran out of food before they had money to buy more. Many of these children have diets consisting of cheap, salty, overly processed packaged foods, high calorie sugary drinks and fast foods made of white bread, fatty grain fed factory farmed meat and french fries. Art Works 4 Food works to supply these children access to nutritious food. Through their programs of serving over 5,000 healthy snacks this past summer to local organizations and an upcoming partnership with C.R.O.S. Ministries to create a Nutritional Knapsack program which will feed school children healthy alternatives on weekends during the school year, Art Works 4 Food has just begun to make a difference. Tickets ($30 advance/$40 event day) may be purchased online at www.artworks4food. org or by calling 561-454-1616.

The consistency in her point of view over the years has earned her the local following she has today. Christinas breakfast and lunch niche is exactly what Delray needs, as is obvious by the steady stream of patrons through her doors. Her history may surprise, being that she is on her fourth Delray location to date. Christinas Greek heritage and family background of owning diners has made the grueling restaurant industry somewhat like home for her. You can see her heritage strewn about her menu, Spanikopita with Greek Salad and Avgolemono soup are just a few menu items that infuse Greek avors and pay homage to her roots. Having lunch at Christinas is a sure treat. I love the California veggie melt and her soup is to die for. The lemony chicken soup has such depth. Where else can you nd a soup that people come in for when they are under the weather? Some of Christinas customers have a longstanding history of coming in for the Avgolemono when their children arent feeling well. And breakfast at Christinas is always Fantastic. The Egg White Omelet with spinach, tomato and feta is my personal favorite. I dont know how she does it, but I order that omelet often and it is uffy and perfect every time. The Twilight Burrito, eggs and cheese wrapped in a our tortilla and served with sour cream and salsa, simply amazing. And for the sweet tooth who loves morning pancakes and french toast, her Banana Cinnamon Nut French Toast will send you over the moon. Right about now you might be asking yourself, what is Christinas history? Well before the Christinas we now know and love on 2nd Avenue in Pineapple Grove, Christina was once the head server at Peters Stone Crabs. This is where she got her start on Atlantic Avenue, and for those of you who have a long running love affair with Atlantic Ave., you know that Peters used to be in the location where Gol! Brazilian Steakhouse now resides. After her long stint at Peters, she then moved onto her rst restaurant venture. This caf was in the location of the Atlantic Starbucks next to The Ofce, named Twilight Caf. For those of you who dont know, it was a small caf serving breakfast, lunch and Italian style dinner on the weekends. After spending what were a few years at Twilight, Christina then moved over to Gleason Street Caf near the beach. She took over the already established business and maintained it long enough for people to walk into Christinas and still talk about some of the Gleason Street fare. Like the cashew chicken salad, which can be found on her menu even today. With the success of Gleason behind her, Christina decided to go a little bit bigger. An idea was born, in that little pocket on the east side of 2nd Ave., where Solitas and House of Siam are Located. This is where the original Christinas rst opened. It was located next to Solitas when it was Kyoto, that delicious restaurant with amazing sushi. The original Christinas is where her menu really took shape and her signature dishes ourished, like the Avgolemono soup, the California Veggie Melt, and those deliciously uffy omelets. Her loyal breakfast and lunch crowd know these signature dishes well. When it comes to consistency, she is on it. Breakfast has to be one of the most difcult meals to execute properly and she does it with nesse. There is a lot to be said about a woman who owns her own restaurant and cooks in it everyday. Christina has a lot of heart and passion for food and it shines through in each delicious bite. After ve years at her original location, Christina felt her restaurant was a little too big for her liking. She closed her restaurant and after a little hiatus, the New Christinas was built, in the little shopping plaza in Pineapple Grove. Where the mimosas are always delicious and the coffee cups have great sayings. This restaurant has charm and food you can count on being cooked to perfection every time you come in. May Christinas stay for a long time. . her food is just that good!Follow a local fave: Christinas

PAGE 12 T he Delray Beach Pineapple How safe is marijuana, really?After decades of widespread casual use, and now after a number of states legalizing use for medicinal purposes, the use of marijuana has increasingly become perceived as safe. Is this perception accurate, or is it a fantasy that has been fostered by nostalgia, urban folklore, the drug culture, and the multi-million dollar dispensary industry? Lets take a step back and try to take in the whole picture. It is important to understand that a number of recent trends have greatly affected the risk prole of marijuana. The rst major change involves the rising concentrations of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). The levels of THC currently seen in higher grades of marijuana are 40 times greater than the levels seen in the late 60s (Woodstock pot is a common reference point). This is the direct result of advanced growing and procurement techniques, which have systematically increased the levels of THC in professionally raised marijuana. Most people see this as a positive result of applied botanical science. The problem here is what is called the dose effect. As the potency of this drug increased over time, a number of thresholds of toxicity have been exceeded. A good analogy would be a comparison to beer. One beer will not due much to cause injury to an adult. Four to six beers would cause a signicant degree of inebriation in the average individual. Forty beers consumed at once however, would cause alcohol poisoning and probably death in many cases. Marijuana has not become a common direct cause of death but has become a signicant cause of major psychiatric complications including depression, anxiety and most alarmingly psychosis. The anxiety and depression problems resulting from THC consumption are nothing new, but they are much more common now. The psychosis severity and frequency is something that is a more recent development though. I personally have treated 14 cases of THC induced psychosis in just the last 3 years. Many other addiction specialists have had similar experiences. The psychosis consists of intense auditory hallucinations, paranoid delusions, and a number of bizarre behaviors that are completely out of character for the individual. The condition resembles Schizophrenia but is usually more difcult to treat. Some of these cases may very well be Schizophrenia that was triggered by the THC, but the total number of cases exceeds the usual incidence of this disease and they all follow heavy pot use. Most of these individuals are not even addicts, just recreational users. All who have suffered this complication have experienced a major decline in functional capacity, often becoming permanently disabled. The prognosis for this condition is very poor. Similar presentations can result from contaminated marijuana. The intentional contamination of marijuana is another growing trend among the purveyors of illicit substances. Many drug dealers spike their marijuana with more addictive drugs, such as cocaine, crystal meth and heroin, to create cross-addictions to substances that generate higher overall prots. Aside from creating these crossaddictions, the contaminants cause a number of other major complications such as seizures, tic and movement disorders, depression, anxiety and psychosis. When complications develop, it is often difcult to distinguish if the cause was the THC or an undetected adulterant. Sometimes the extra ingredients can be detected on a drug test. Many other chemicals such as formaldehyde are frequently added and also cause neurological complications. In addition to all of the neurological problems caused by THC, a host of psychological consequences have arisen from all of the recent trends. The legalization of marijuana in some states has fostered a perception that the drug is very safe, especially among adolescents. I have had countless Florida teens tell me openly yeah but pot is legal. This has led to more experimentation at an earlier age. The young human brain that is not fully developed is exquisitely sensitive to the negative effects of drug use. The increased early marijuana use in turn has facilitated more experimentation with more addictive drugs. Experimentation with addictive drugs reliably leads to addiction in many cases. The net result is a worsening of the nations drug problem, especially among the younger generation. The surge in drug use has been so prominent in Palm Beach County that the Delray Center For Healing has developed and launched a new outpatient drug treatment and relapse prevention program for adolescents to address this growing epidemic. This information is relevant to all segments of the population, but will most likely be received by parents and grandparents. If you are a parent or grandparent, it is important to realize that the marijuana you may have tried in the past was very different than what is available now. Your experiences did not carry the same risks that your children and grandchildren face today. It is important to understand the differences when discussing this topic with your family. Regardless of what your opinion of marijuana use actually is, it is of greatest importance to base that opinion on the most complete foundation of information that is available to you.

PAGE 14 T he Delray Beach Pineapple destinations Have you snorkeled a 100 year old ship wreck? Have you been on a Hobie Cat or sailboat recently? How about paddleboarding or kayaking? All this and more is available right here at Delray Beach Watersports. Located along the South side of A1A, this company has established itself as Delrays premier location for fun on the beach. Delray Beach Watersports, owned and operated by Albert Richwagen, was an integral part in showing USA Today and Rand McNallys Best of the Road team why Delray Beach is the Most Fun Small Town in America. They treated our visiting travelers to the best Delray has to offer, from sailing the crystal waters of the Atlantic to snorkeling the 100 year old ship wreck just twenty feet from shore. Richwagen helped Delray show its true colors, which incidentally are varying shades of turquoise and aquamarine. Unbeknownst to many Delray residents, this company has transformed the beach experience. Walking towards their alcove on Casuarina Road and A1A can only be compared to stepping into a Beach Boys music video. A thatched roof tiki umbrella casts shade over relaxing beach chairs next to the rental stand. This is where it all begins. From surng, paddle boarding and boogie boarding to windsurng, kayaking and snorkeling, they truly have it all. Delray Beach Watersports also offers a Surf Camp, a fantastic way to learn a new skill while enjoying some of the most beautiful landscapes in Florida. They also offer sailing or hobiecat lessons. One aspect of this beach paradise that cannot be overlooked is the friendly and well-versed staff. They provide beach goers with everything from safety information to the most opportune time of year to try each of their stellar activities. Nothing is more evident than these employees fervent zeal for beach life, and this is clearly illustrated in their desire to share all Delray Beach has to offer. Living in South Florida palm trees and ocean breezes often become commonplace, but they are surely not taken for granted at this Delray landmark.

In January, 2010 efforts were stepped up with the opening of their Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility (STRF). The STRF was temporarily closed in August 2010 to make modications and improvements to the ltration system. Now the STRF will once again be open to visitors. We look forward to having Gumbo Limbo visitors learn about the sea turtles under our care and the injuries they are dealing with, says Manager, Stefanie Ouellette. They will also learn simple steps which they can take, such as properly disposing of trash, to help prevent injuries to sea turtles and other wildlife. Earlier this summer, the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission granted Gumbo Limbo Nature Centers STRF a temporary permit allowing the treatment of sea turtles again. Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Coordinator, Ryan Butts, is enthusiastically taking on the challenge. We immediately received a juvenile green sea turtle in need of care. Over the past three months we have received four more green turtles and one loggerhead turtle. One of the green turtles was released back into the ocean a few weeks ago, the ultimate goal of rehab. Over the summer, visitors to the Nature Center were often able to get a peek at the sea turtle patients resting in special tanks adjacent to the Sea Tank Pavilion walkway. Starting this past September 28, visitors are able to visit the STRF and talk to staff and trained volunteers about the sea turtle patients. Set on twenty acres of one of the only remaining tropical hardwood hammocks in Palm Beach County, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center is an environmental education experience for all ages. Located at 1801 North Ocean Blvd in Boca Raton, the Center is open 7 days a week, 361 days a year. The suggested donation of $5 per person supports all aspects of the Center. www.gumbolimbo.orgGumbo Limbos Sea Turtle Rehabilitation Facility OpeningWilander, Moya, Philippoussis also playing in newly-formatted eventDELRAY BEACH, FL John McEnroe is returning to Delray Beach to play in the newly-formatted ATP Champions Tour event that features six stars playing a round-robin event over three days.

The Delray Beach Pineapple THE GIRLS U-PICKA strawberry time machineBy Jordan Coyne Special to The Pineapple The best kept secret of Delray Beach? We have a time machine. Some said it couldnt be done, others whispered of distant possibilities, but just North of Atlantic Avenue on Military Trail lies a hidden gem that immediately transports all who enter to the era of Happy Days and penny candies at the general store. This place, this beacon of a simpler time, is The Girls Strawberry Patch. The Girls Strawberry Patch is nestled in an assortment lot of locally owned venues, quiet and humble. A passerby may even pay no mind to this small piece of Delray culture, but they would be sorely mistaken. Upon entering The Girls your senses begin to run wild. Colorful visuals dart the eye from one keepsake to the next while the nose is trying to absorb the tantalizing and ever present aroma of strawberries. Youve hit the mother-load. Further inquiry into the sights and sounds of The Girls reveals everything form small modern day trinkets to retro lunchboxes. Meandering through the store, listening to the likes of Dion and The Platters, lls every shop-goer with a sense of nostalgia that is only heightened by the seemingly endless assortment of old fashioned candy. The sweet memories continue with their extensive list of mouth watering homemade ice cream, but the must have is nothing other than traditional strawberry shortcake. Served with heaps of whipped cream, this dessert can certainly be shared, but who would want to? Just when it seems as though the experience is over, all signs point to the rear exit, the strawberry patch. The doors open to a magical mixture of fresh off the vine fruit and exotic animals that plasters on a smile you cannot shake. The expansive plot of land is truly unexpected and takes most every visitor by surprise. Although strawberries are a seasonal fruit, The Girls offers fresh mangoes, papayas, avocados and more. Their collections of exotic birds will leave you speechless, but try to prepare a few talking points because some love a good chat. All in all, a visit to The Girls is a step back in time, a simpler time when the summer nights were endless and smelled of heavenly strawberries.

Otherwise, questions or concerns can be made to the CRA at (561) 276-8640 or Delray Beach CRA community notice By Stephanie Immelman Special to The Pineapple Alex Warner has a pretty interesting back story. After a brief stint in pro baseball in his early 20s he decided college might be a better idea and enrolled at Lynn University. After going out on Atlantic Avenue one night he immediately moved to Delray and fell in love with this town. This is a similar refrain I hear from many people who have moved here. They dont just love Delray, they fall in love with Delray. After University, Alex was offered a job on the oor of the US Stock Exchange in New York City for Bank of America. He was right at the epicenter of the international nance industry. However, he remembers, every day on the subway, amongst the herds of Wall Streeters, I was daydreaming about Delray Beach. So Alex came back home to Delray with a thought to developing a boat rental business. He was thinking along the lines of Net Jets, an airline company that hires out private jets. He wanted to bring this concept (hours of boating time) to the luxury boating industry. Gulfstream Boat Club sells memberships starting at 16 hours for $1000. This gives regular people the ability to participate in a wealthy persons sport. Alex explains, Young professional can join a boat club but they dont have the time and money to own and maintain their own boat. Enjoying the water is one of the greatest things that south Florida offers. If you dont get out on the water, its like living in Vail and never skiing. In addition to memberships, the Gulfstream Boat Club also offers half day or full day rentals, shing charters, scuba diving and trips to the Keys and the Bahamas. They will even do an evening sunset cocktail cruise. Basically, we do anything on the water says one of his captains, Justin Jordan. All this didnt come easy. Alex always loved the boat business but realized he needed to learn it from the ground up. After moving back to Delray he approached Pat, the owner of Marina Delray for a job. After working on Wall Street, he agreed to start at $10 an hour cleaning the bathrooms and scraping the barnacles off the boats in the marina. It wasnt easy, laughs Alex, but my mindset was always on the big picture. One year later he asked Pat if he could start a boat rental business and the answer was yes. He started with 2 boats and 10 customers and now, 4 years later, he has 10 boats and 100 members. They have also expanded their business to Two Georges in Boynton Beach and more expansion is on the way. In addition to life on the water, Alex loves art (he spent a semester in Florence, Italy doing photography) and his boat dog, Luna, a chocolate lab. I love being a part of a community like Delray. There are so many people here that have pride in our town and a passion for making Delray incredible. It seems like Alex is rst among them.

PAGE 20 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By Ed Maass The Pineapple Staff Writer To begin lets tune into WIIFM, No not a new station found on your radio dial, but simply an acronym that most people utilize each and every day of their lives, WIIFM: Whats In It for Me. The short answer, should you choose to continue reading, might just be a bit of insight and knowledge that could help you to achieve your financial goals. Whether its mixing cement, baking a cake or building an investment portfolio, its the right mix that determines the outcome. The right mix equates to allocating and diversifying your assets in different investment vehicles. Unfortunately, for many, asset allocation is the investment equivalent of flossing your teeth (most know we should do it), however for some reason we dont. Asset allocation is synonymous with diversification, but diversification is a relative term. Many investors may believe they are diversified, yet they probably have not implemented a real asset allocation plan. True asset allocation looks at the full scope of investment alternatives, which may include stocks, bonds, REITs, hedge funds, commodities, money market instruments, and other investment alternatives. The underlying concept of asset allocation tells us that whatever the market environment brings forth, some of these investments should be advancing or at least holding steady while others are declining in value. It is important to note that a properly allocated portfolio will not offer the explosive growth and fireworks of a narrowly invested one; however it will hopefully minimize the total risk in the portfolio and thus reduce the chances of severe and disappointing losses. Television, radio, newspapers and other media often paint with a broad brush when it comes to investing. The stock market (Dow Jones Industrial Average) is up or down and the bond market is stagnant end of story. Usually however, its not that simple. During any given market environment, some stocks are usually rising while others are falling. Quite often trends emerge, and rising and falling stocks will fall into distinct asset classes. If youre serious about building a well diversified asset allocation plan, you should consider the pros and cons of investing in the various major stock asset classes, including small cap and large cap, value and growth, foreign and U.S. Similar thinking also applies to different types of bonds, REITs and other investment alternatives. If you dont want to short-change yourself and your future net worth, you need to be aware of these different asset classes and make sure that you include them in your investment portfolio. While I might be dating myself I will leave you with a verse from a Rita Coolidge song, Too often opportunity knocks, but by the time you push back the chain, slide back the bolt, unhook the lock and turn off the burglar alarm, its too late. You have a potential opportunity to help yourself become a more successful investor so dont let it pass you by. And above all, if you need help, ask for it!Ed Maass is a Certified Financial Planner, Chartered Financial Consultant, and Chartered Life Underwriter. Located in Downtown Delray Beach you can contact Ed@physicianswealthcare.comTHE RIGHTMIX The Pineapple sat down for a chat recently with Anthony V. Pugliese, III CEO of the Pugliese Company of Delray Beach, a South Florida real estate developer. Pugliese is an avid art collector and philanthropist. Recently, the idea of combining the two passions emerged and a great concept was born: Art Works 4 Food. Through Art Works 4 Food, Pugliese hopes to bring together emerging artists, established artists, art galleries and collectors to donate their creations, time, and resources to help feed children in need. An artist himself, Pugliese will be leading the way by providing 100 paintings (painted by him) for sale in various art galleries around Florida. One hundred percent of the sales proceeds after third party sales commissions and expenses from art sales will be donated to Art Works 4 Food. Pineapple: For people who dont know who you are, can you tell us a little about your company? Pugliese: The Pugliese Companys main focus is in raw land development dealing in commercial, industrial and residential properties. We own and manage close to 2 millionsquare-feet of industrial, ofce and self-storage in Florida and New Jersey. I started out in the building business when I was 17-years-old. Pineapple: We understand in August 1999 you bought an old blighted, twoacre property (an old Winn Dixie) on NE 1st Street and 2nd Avenue to develop the rst Pineapple Grove commercial project. Pugliese: Yes, Delray has always had its own special thing; with connectivity and a hometown avor. From my viewpoint even though the property was in a blighted area I knew it would one day come into its own because of its close proximity to all the action on Atlantic Avenue and 2nd Avenue. In 2001, we built our Corporate Ofces and a 30,000 Square-foot Retail store, Creations. I guess we must have done something right because we received an award from the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) for our Development at 101 Pineapple Grove Way in Delray Beach. Pineapple: Tell us about your non-prot organization, Art Works 4 Food that raises awareness and funds to provide healthy food to the growing number of homeless and hungry Palm Beach County School Children. Pugliese: Clearly hunger is an issue around the world, but what completely shocked me was the fact that here in afuent Palm Beach County there is a growing number of homeless and hungry children. Since 2007, we have had an 83 percent increase in Palm Beach County school age child homelessness. In the past two years a 66 percent growth in poverty in our School Districts, and 61 percent of school children are now receiving free or reduced lunch programs. These food insecure children not only demonstrate higher health and behavioral issues, but what is really worrisome is that the school drop-out rate is ve times higher. These children, for the most part, only have access to processed foods lled with sugar, fats and salts. Clearly not the right body and brain food they need to have a chance to succeed. Pineapple: Can you tell us about the Art Component of your new charity, Art Works 4 Food? Pugliese: My concept is to raise some necessary funds for the Healthy Food Programs by selling my artwork and other artists work. I painted 103 original paintings over several years, and I did that as a way to bring awareness to this issue. We are looking for young talented children, professional and amateur artists who want to donate art work and receive a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the art. The rest will be donated to Art Works 4 Food. Pineapple: We hear you are launching a new technological format, Augmented Reality at your fundraiser that will take place on October 24th in at Maxs Harvest. Pugliese: Both art and technology have been of major interest to me, so it seemed like a natural progression for me to incorporate it into my artwork. Augmented Reality merges the virtual and physical worlds through the use of technology. It combines the real and virtual worlds with interactive and real-time images that are 3D. Its very intriguing just bring your Smart or IPhone.

The City of Delray Beach has entered into an Economic Development Partnership with the National League of Cities (NLC) and Northeastern Universitys Dukakis Center for Urban and Regional Policy to promote local economic development. Through this partnership, the City will participate in the Economic Development Self-Assessment Tool (EDSAT), which will analyze our municipalitys economic strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats regarding its ability to attract new businesses while retaining and growing existing ones.

Heres a little local trivia. Mr. Links daughter, Catherine Link Strong, went on to become Delrays rst woman mayor in 1954. What I find really interesting is that even though Del-Ida Park is considered a planned development there are many odd shaped lots with varying street frontages caused by the diagonal running side streets. Definitely not your typical cookie-cutter neighborhood. Ok, you sold me how do I live in DelIda? Well, you better move quick. Currently there are only two homes available in the area according to the local MLS. Both homes were built in the early 1960s and are right around the 2,300 per square foot range. One of the homes resides on famed Swinton Avenue and has an asking price of $499,000, placing it just above $230 per square foot and features a large yard, pool, and inviting circular driveway. The other is in the dual-zoned area (you can live or work here) on 3rd and has an asking price of $399,900 which is just shy of $170 per square foot. Both homes have maintained their gorgeous historical exterior appearance while being meticulously updated inside. Delray Beach bringing history, music, art and the beaches all together.

www.DP. T D B P Welcome to ...Then Jack Happened, the new advice column written by me, Jack. I grew up reading all of your favorite advice columns, hoping one day to get a crack at my own, and now here we are. This is going to be a lot of fun, certainly for me and hopefully for you. The rst question has to be, who is this Jack chump to be giving advice? My credentials are understandably fair game. Anticipating this issue, I researched the backgrounds of several syndicated advice columnists to decipher what separated all of us from them. I can cheerfully report that the answer is this: very little to nothing. They are people, women usually, with bachelor of arts with some sort of writing background, that have penned articles called Water Birth and You, Soup Spoons: Underrated in the 21st Century, or How to Dump Your Boyfriend and Begin Dating His Roommate, the Hot One. They occasionally come from rough backgrounds and sometimes they are blue bloods. I am almost there. I am a 31-year-old single fellow with a bachelor of the arts in English that has yet to write an article about uteruses, formal table etiquette, or love problems, but I promise to whip something up once ...Then Jack Happened gets off the ground. Importantly, I am capable of reading and writing sentences. Im neither a rough kid nor a fancy boy, but I can handle myself comfortably in most social situations. So who can ask questions? Anyone. What kind of questions will I answer? Almost any question I find interesting, and more importantly, any question you find interesting. This column is the readership, you are its support system and authors. I am a proactive bystander. This excites me because you readers have endless possibilities, contrasted to my numerous limitations. As far as the tone and language, I wont be going blue, I got the vocabulary for it but want to keep the column reasonable, helpful, and considerate. I wont be obscene for the sake of obscenity, because that is boring, but I will be honest and straightforward. We will crack some jokes and enjoy some poetry. ...Then Jack Happened is for fun, interest, and the human condition. I am excited to start and look forward to your questions, problems, and stories so, please, write in and well get going. Question: Im about to turn 30 and although Im not all that bent up about it like mostI am going to miss the Wow thats impressive for someone in their s! So I guess my question for you Jack, is What do I have to accomplish in my s to get someone to crow Wow thats really impressive for someone in their s!? Answer: Happy birthday and welcome to the s club, I have been a member for over a year and its fantastic. I have interesting patches of hair, bags under my eyes, and my downslopes are faster than my up-slopes. Still, I feel great. Your attitude about turning 30 is positive, but it would serve you better to extend it further. Because you impressed in your s you must have enjoyed some type of success in your life, which is a wonderful thing. Although it is nice to have those successes recognized, your successes and goals must align with your personal happiness and satisfaction or else the outside validation is meaningless. Ive always equated success/impressiveness with happiness, and you probably wont be happy unless you follow your personal passions. What good is managing the worlds largest spittoon conglomerate at 32 if you are unhappy doing it? You should accept that youre the only one running in your race so its important to run as hard as you can, and although you are inconsolable when you inevitably dont win, you are brightened that you didnt lose either.

Firstly, he is an extraordinarily beautiful man, gristled with the musk of pure machismo, but also demure and polite, regal and rened, he is an American Patriot. Occasionally this distracts, but in 99 out of 100 situations this is a benet to the company [advice column]. His light brown tresses, perfectly askew and splendidly muffed hearken to boyhood charms and innocent tomfoolery, but also can freeze into a pose of cold analytic business-serious, a mane that bets the man. The sleepy, mysterious chocolate orbs, occasionally bespectacled, dart too and fro always observing and pondering his surroundings, soaking in the environment but also providing a lush window into his comple8x soul; they are more of a place that one would sit and have a single-malt, rather than mere human eyes. His angular face, with commanding beak, powerful jaw line, soft, aware ears set the perfect tiger trap, a creature so stunning shouldnt be so amazingly approachable and good natured. His mouth, soft and wet created by two alluring pillows, peels back to reveal a smart, gapped smile, mischievous and ingenious, with a single un-cavitied goldenrodtinged chomp that rests on the edge of the invisible; even Achilles had his heel. His powerful body slivers and gracefully glides through the sands of time, an appropriate vehicle, well oiled, treated, cared for, riding along lifes highways with not a hiccup but many a head turn. Always dressed meticulously and true, he makes a tee-shirt a tuxedo and a tuxedo a pair of trunks; always with his soft, long feet shelled in Spanish appropriateness. His nature removes angst, and doubt, and fear and gives hope to the question: is Man a Beast, or is he something More. Something that polishes out the scuffs, and wipes the tears, and reaches a slightly callused grip out for an honest greeting that lls the void in a heart with warm apple cider and moms comfort food. To be in his presence is to understand forgiveness. Forgiveness for all the atrocities, all the disagreements, all the children resting their wandering heads and questioning beings without a morsel of food in their stomachs. [Jack] is Hope.

Saturday and Sunday October 27 & 28 (Show Hours: 10:00 am to 4:30 pm) FREE ADMISSION Just call me Rigel Post Shopping etiquette to buy byThis month in lieu of my usual question and answer column, Ive decided to address an issue of personal importance, Shopping Etiquette. High Season is upon us and the stores will soon be lling up again, with lines for the tting rooms, waits to check out and, inevitably, some cranky shoppers and sales clerks. Working in retail is, for the most part, wonderful, and I have made friends with many of my customers. However, there are things that frankly drive me bananas in my line of work. After discussing the subject further with colleagues and doing some online research, it seems Im not alone in my frustration. And the same things tend to bother us all. The bottom line is that shopping should be a pleasure. But in order for that to be fully realized, the experience should be mutually pleasing for both the customer and the sales clerk. Here are some rules to shop by. And while Im sure that youd never do these things, consider this a friendly reminder before you head out to make your next purchase. 1. Be polite I was recently shopping in Manhattan at a well-known, high-end shop that I will refrain from naming. I was in the store for over 20 minutes and the two giraffe model-type girls working on the oor hadnt so much as blinked at me. They were completely unaware of my presence and were instead focused on taking pictures of each other in various poses for, I assume, Facebook. I left soon after, annoyed and empty-handed. Point being, you should always expect to be greeted and acknowledged when walking into a store. That being said, a response is appreciated. Ignoring a Hello is quite rude in any setting and can set the precedent for the rest of the visit. Beginning with a pleasant rapport is the best way to ensure an enjoyable experience. 2. Bathrooms Most boutiques do not have public restrooms. Yes, department stores have bathrooms, but most boutiques have limited space in the back, often an ofce, stock room and storage in one small area. The restrooms therefore are most likely unglamorous and are reserved for employees only. Dont be offended by a refusal to let you go, its not personal and Im sure that theres (almost always) a Starbucks near by. 3. Children I shopped with my mom all the time as a child. Her mantra to me was, look with your eyes, not with your hands. If, on the off chance I wasnt being angelic, and I was touching things or misbehaving, we left immediately. We dont mind your kids in the store, but seriously, they have to be on their best behavior. Crying, screaming, pulling clothes off the racks, crawling on displays, foot stomping.not okay. As a general rule I would say to reserve actual shopping trips, when youre looking for new jeans, for example, for a kid free afternoon. If youre popping by to browse or say hello, kids are cool, but they lose patience quickly and quite frankly, so do we. 4. Discounts Its really never okay to ask for a discount. Let me rst make a few exceptions, though I stand by my rst statement whole-heartedly. If you nd that an item on the oor is damaged, point it out to the sales person. In the event that it is the only one and you are willing to take it as nal sale, a discount will most likely be offered and if not, its okay to ask for a percentage off. If you work in a nearby store and there is a courtesy discount generally given, you may ask if the store youre in participates. However, in both instances, the shop owner or sales person is free to decline. Simply asking for a discount because you want to pay less isnt okay. Most stores have sale items and asking if something is on sale is ne. But choosing your items and then trying to haggle the price is just plain rude. If the owner of the store or sales clerk is able to offer you a discount, they will, and I can guarantee theyll be more inclined to do so if youve been polite and havent behaved as though you deserve a discount simply because youre you. 5. Returns/Exchanges Boutiques generally operate differently from large department stores and their policies on returns and exchanges are probably somewhat less lenient. Understand the rules where youre shopping before you make a purchase. Because stores are required to have their policies displayed, claiming ignorance while trying to return something most likely wont be effective. Arguing with a sales person about the stores policy is also probably not going to work in your favor. And I hate to even have to mention this, but I do, wearing or altering a garment and then trying to return it . never okay. 6. High Prices When walking through a store, if you nd that the prices seem high, thats ne. But please, keep that to yourself. It is impolite and offensive to scoff at prices, or say things like, this skirt isnt worth x dollars?! or I could get this at Target. Perhaps youre not familiar with the lines carried at the store youre in. Asking polite and respectful questions is, of course, okay, and even welcomed. Just dont say, Why is this so expensive? because that just sounds silly. 7. Making a Mess It is the job of a sales person to keep the store looking clean and nice. That means re-folding things, rehanging things and such. However, that doesnt mean that its okay to unfold every shirt in the store and leave them in a ball. It also doesnt mean leaving things youve tried on in a pile on the oor. Its disrespectful to treat things that dont belong to you that way. In closing, remembering the adage, you catch more ies with honey than with vinegar, is a good rule of thumb when shopping. In my experience, people respond so much better to someone who is polite and nice, rather than aggressive, pushy and rude. Most people working in retail enjoy what they do and love what they sell and sincerely want to help. And having good manners and proper etiquette is always in fashion.
