He reached the 2008 French Open seminals as well as the quarternal rounds of the 2009 French Open and the 2010 US Open. In 2011, the Frenchman was ranked in the Top 10 for 32 straight weeks. Four Top 20s denitely makes it a great ticket for the fans, says ITC tournament director Mark Baron. And we are more than thrilled to have Gael Monls in our event. Hes a legitimate Top 10 player who 14th ANNUAL DELRAY BEACH GARLIC FESTIts always chic to reek in Delray Beach!Now in its 14th year, Delray Beachs Garlic Fest is the signature food and entertainment event in the city. In addition to great food, music, artists and crafters, the Garlic Fest continues to be a successful fundraiser for local non-prot organizations raising over $390,000. The 3-day event will be held Friday through Sunday, February 8 10, 2013. Festival hours are Friday: 4pm-11pm, Saturday: 11am-11pm, Sunday: 11am-7pm. This unique event crosses all cultural boundaries and ages, providing something for everyone featuring; national act entertainment, a wine garden, full liquor bars, the House of Appliances Garlic Chef Stadium, garlic-inspired gourmet food, over 180 unique vendors, childrens activities and rides, cooking competitions and demonstrations and Garlic University. The Garlic Fest draws international media attention including a featured spot on the Food Networks Unwrapped. It has been featured in over 40 national magazines, two network appearances and countless hours of local media coverage. Locals call it the Best Stinking Party in Town and a walk past the festival grounds will send your olfactory glands into hyper drive. MAIN STAGE ENTERTAINMENT The covered/tented Main Stage area opens on Friday, February 8th, with opening night headliner Lifehouse! Lifehouse has always done well on radio, TV, and online, but just as impressive is their take-no-prisoners approach to touring. We stayed out on the road for the last ten years, Jason says. Even through the hard times we played four to six shows a week. We refused to disappear. We really love being on the road, Ricky says. We enjoy playing live, feeling that energy. And when we have time off we have a good time doing whatever. We go to basketball and love to eat!. Clearly the bar has been set high, both qualitatively and commercially, and Lifehouse was well aware of the stakes when it entered the studio last year to make its sixth album which has just hit the charts, Almera.What transpired was a creative adventure that surprised the band but also resulted in perhaps its most daring and provocative release to date. On Saturday, February 9th, 2013, Pepper hits the stage. Pepper, comprised of guitarist/vocalist Kaleo Wassman, bassist/ vocalist Bret Bollinger and drummer Yesod Williams, formed in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1997. Having grown up surng on the island, its not a wonder that they would mix their rock shock and ah are, along with their mellow island rhythm roots to create their own truly diverse sound.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com By Chelsea Midlarsky Special to The Pineapple My love for cycling started a decade ago when I started riding with my family. I remember taking rides with my parents and my brother Michael every weekend over the years.an activity that continues to this day. Each Sunday leading up to the Delray Beach Twilight Festival, a 2nd year event happening March 23 that attracts more than 700 amateur and professional bicycle racers, we meet up to cycle with others who share our passion. The rides have grown to about 60 cyclists each week that we group into three levels, including beginners who start at 14 miles an hour. Through our weekly gatherings we have met many talented and all-around great peoplemany of whom have made their own matches through cycling and share their love of the sport. In the spirit of Valentines Day, I thought I would reect upon stories of love, hope and teamwork. I met Jeff and Christina Fleming years ago when they participated in weekly Sunday rides. Married for 26 years, Jeff and Christina have rode together all over the world with cycling trips in Europe, California and Colorado. The couple was faced with their biggest challenge last year when Jeff was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a disease that he continues to ght. Jeff, who has always been a rider, introduced Christina to the sport and she was immediately hooked. Despite Jeffs diagnosis and treatments, the couple continues to ride together as much as possible and plan on participating in the March race. It was cycling that brought Skip Guarniere and Amy Good together one year ago, they met while riding. Amy, who has been riding for ve years, was just recovering from a back injury that had her off the bike for 6 months. The pair met as Amy was struggling to nish the ride in pain. Skip introduced himself as an exercise physiologist (which Amy was also studying at the time) and talked about his personal training studio that helps people recover from similar back injuries. They realized they had much in common including cycling and exercise physiology. The two have been dating ever since and now operate their businesses together his Synergy Personal Training and hers Velocity Training Institute in Pineapple Grove. They will both participate in this years event. Anyone with a bike and an interest in cycling is welcome to join the Delray Twilight Festival group for weekly Sunday rides. For more information, join our Facebook page or visit our website at www.delraybeachtwilight.com. We announce all the details for the coming week on Mondays. There is no cost to participate. The Delray Beach Twilight Festival will include events for all ages and levels to include The Granfondo Garneau Florida, presented by The Delray Beach Twilight ($125 pp) including a custom jersey and Bib timing; Twilight Kids Race for children ages 3 10 (FREE); Amateur Mens Criterium for intermediate and advanced USCF riders; Twilight Childrens Parade; Womens Criterium for elite and advanced women athletes; three 30 minute Keith King BMX stunt shows between 2 p.m. 8 p.m.; Pro Mens Criterium for professional and elite athletes to include current and former Olympic athletes, national and international champions. Proceeds raised through this event will benet KIDS in Distress, the Gumbo Limbo Nature Center and the YMCA Bike Program. The Festival is also hosting a Kick-off Party on Thursday, January 31 from 6 p.m. 9 p.m. at Solita Delray. 25 NE 2nd Avenue. The event is open and free to the public. Guests will enjoy a fashion show with models displaying top-of-the-line bicycles and racing attire from multiple participating cycling shops; a Sexy Leg Contest; rafe and Celebrity Cycling auction to include one-on-one training and riding lessons with some of the areas most accomplished cyclists.

Chelsea Midlarsky is Founder of the Delray Beach Twilight FestivalWHEEL LOVE: FOR MANY, CYCLING IS MORE THAN A SPORTDelray Beach Twilight Festival founder shares stories of love, bonding & camaraderie through competitive pastime Brother, Michael Midlarsky, mother, Lisa Midlarsky, father Steven Midlarsky and Chelsea Midlarsky DELRAY BEACH ATHLETIC CLUB continued from page 1 soccer coach can receive: the National Coach of the Year award from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Its easy to see why he qualied for the honor: under Burgess direction, the American Heritage team has made nine consecutive State Finals appearancesa Florida recordand has won the title ve times. Raised on the outskirts of Wimbledon in Southwest London, Burgess played soccer (known as football in the U.K.) for his high school team and for various local and countywide clubs. Coaching became Burgess passion in his 20s, and by age 30 he had relocated to South Florida with his American-born wife. His rst coaching job in the U.S. was with the Renegades Soccer Club of Coral Springs, Florida, where he worked for 12 years before joining the Delray Beach Athletic Club staff in 2010. He has served as a NSCAA State Technical Coordinator since 2005, organizing and teaching coaching courses at the state, regional and national levels. Im fortunate to have reached a certain level where a lot of the college coaches nationwide know me and trust me, says Burgess, now 45. Over the past 10 years, hes been invited to work at numerous college preparation and recruitment camps at schools such as Florida State University, the University of Miami, and St. Leo University north of Tampa. These connections have helped him guide both high school and Club players toward successful collegiate soccer experiences, including scholarships in some cases. Lacrosse professional shares his love of the game Kevin Finneran is DBACs Director (head coach) of Lacrosse, a game thats not as well known as soccer but every bit as challenging. Finneran is a true lacrosse veteran, having played the game at the youth, high school, college, and professional level. He was a First Team All-American at Ohio Wesleyan University in 1989. Incredibly, he went on to play 13 consecutive years of professional lacrosse without missing a single game. In 1994, and Finneran was All-Pro with the Philadelphia Wings (professional indoor lacrosse). That led to the crown jewel of his career: being selected to play for Team USA in the sports World Championship tournament in 1998. The outcome? Team USA beat Canada in double overtime. Early in his professional career, Finneran started a training company called Coach Finn Lacrosse, offering lacrosse camps and clinic for kids. It afforded me the opportunity to travel around the world and do clinics, says Finneran. Ive been to Australia to do lacrosse clinics, Japan, the Czech Republic, and all over Europe. Four year ago, he decided to move to South Florida to grow the game down here. He volunteered as a DBAC lacrosse coach to get his foot in the door, and was ultimately made Director of Lacrosse last year. Now 47, Coach Finn has a platform for spreading his love of lacrosse to kids of all ages. You put a stick on their hand, and they get it, he says. Obviously Im partial to the game, but its a very exciting sport and we offer a lot of different opportunities for kids to play. An equal-opportunity sports club As a nonprot organization, the DBAC is supported entirely by player registration fees and private donations. The club raises funds throughout the year to pay for scholarships (reduced registration fees) so that no player is turned away due to nancial hardship. DBAC is kicking off its 35th anniversary year with Vino Las Vegas, a wine tasting/casino night fundraiser at the vintage gymnasium inside the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square on Friday, February 22 from 7 to 10:30 p.m. This is going to be a fun night, complete with a Texas Hold Em tournament, says DBAC volunteer Candace Rojas. We hope the Delray business community will come out and support our efforts to let all interested local kids learn and grow from our terric soccer and lacrosse coaches.

Part of the tour focuses on the West Settlers District, the only historical region of Delray Beach dedicated to the AfricanAmerican settlers and pioneers of the city. The museum, home to educational leader Solomon D. Spady, and the former La France Hotel, are highlights of the West Settlers District. The La France Hotel, now an apartment complex for seniors, used to be the home away from home for black performers, who were unable to stay at any other South Florida lodging, due to segregation.

www.DelrayPineapple.com The Delray Beach Pineapple has to be considered one of the favorites to win our title. The No. 20 Dolgopolov is also making his rst appearance in the Delray Beach eld. The 24-year-old Kiev, Ukraine resident won two ATP titles over the last two seasons, and reached No. 13 in the world last year. He was an Australian Open quarternalist in 2011. Feliciano Lopez is another newcomer to the ITC; Lopez reached No. 15 in the world in 2011 and helped Spain win the 2008 and 2009 Davis Cup titles. Fans shouldnt count out two players just outside the Top 20: world No. 21 Haas and No. 27 Fish, who took a medical sabbatical from tennis after reaching the fourth round of the US Open in September. The 34-year-old Haas made a successful comeback from injury for the third time in his career, returning the Top 20 in 2012 while the 31-year-old Fish spent most of the last two years in the Top 10. Marinko Matosesvic, the 2012 ITC runner-up to Anderson, is also returning to the ITC. The Australian was a surprise nalist after coming out of the qualifying rounds, and has improved his ranking to No. 48 in the world. Anderson is currently ranked No. 36 and will be in the mix to defend his title. In addition to Isner and Fish, 20-year-old Ryan Harrison rounds out the American trio in the 32-player eld. Isner looks to be the overall top seed in Delray Beach, but Baron is still holding three wild cards if other top-ranked players become available. Boca Raton resident Jesse Levine of Canada, who took out former Top 10 Tommy Robredo in the rst round of the Australian Open this week, is the rst alternate for the ATP World Tour event. The world No. 1 Bryan Brothers will highlight the doubles eld at the ITCs ATP World Tour event, while John McEnroe leads a group of six players in the ATP Champions Tour matches on the events opening weekend (Feb. 22 24). Individual tickets for the event range in price from $24 $39 for grandstand seats, $42 $60 for reserved seating, $75 $90 for box seats and $165 $249 for Best Seats In The House (courtside). Ticket packages for the entire 10-day event or for multiple sessions are also available.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com February may be a month for romance, but its also a time for you to focus on loving yourselfand your heart. As we celebrate National Heart Month, here are 28 ideas that you can do each day to lower your risk of heart disease and improve your quality of life. Share this with your friends and loved ones to show them how much you care! 1. Get a checkup. Your doctor doesnt just treat disease. They also offer screenings and preventive care. Knowing your health status (and risk) will help make lifestyle changes in areas that need improvement. 2. Dont smoke. Smoking damages more than your lungs. It hardens the arteries, raises blood pressure, and causes irregular heartbeat. Find a smoking cessation program to help kick the habit. 3. Monitor your cholesterol intake. Your body needs cholesterol, but too much can contribute to disease. Keep your intake under 300 milligrams daily. 4. Get moving. Physical activity is an important part of a heart-healthy routine. It can also can help your control your weight, lower your blood pressure, and improve your cholesterol. Aim for 30 minutes of exercise each day. 5. Boost your HDL. You want these healthy cholesterol levels to be at least 60 mg/ dL to protect your heart. Do this by exercising regularly and enjoying healthy fats found in nuts, olive oil, sh, and axseed. 6. Slow down. Chronic stress exposes your body to elevated levels of stress hormones that can elevate blood pressure and contribute to weight gain. Meditations, yoga, journaling, and exercising can all help. 7. Go Nuts! Almonds, cashews, axseeds, hazelnuts, pecans, sesame seeds, and walnuts all contain healthy fats. Enjoy a handful 3-5 times a week for a healthier heart. 8. Pump iron! Strength training benets more than your muscles. It can also lower blood pressure, strengthen the heart and help it beat more efciently. Aim for 2-3 strength-training sessions each week. 9. Avoid trans fats. Consuming even a tiny amount of trans fat can greatly increase your risk of heart disease. Foods that contain partially hydrogenated oil as an ingredient is trans fat and the worlds unhealthiest fat. 10. Lose weight. Dropping just 10% of your body weight (if youre overweight) can signicantly improve your blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and overall heart health. 11. Sip green tea. Iced or hot green tea is packed with antioxidants that prevent plaque from forming on artery walls, relax the blood vessels, and reduce the risk of heart disease. Brew and enjoy 1-2 cups each day. 12. Consider aspirin therapy. Taking baby aspirin (81 mg) can help reduce the risk of heart attack and preventing blood clots. Since its not safe for everyone, talk to your doctor rst. 13. Fill up with ber. Soluble ber (found in oats, rice, bran, dried beans, and apples) can help lower your cholesterol levels, which improves your heart health. Aim for 25-35 grams of ber each day. 14. Happy Valentines Day. Studies show that dark chocolate helps prevent heart disease. Milk chocolate does not offer the same benets, so look for at least 60-70% dark chocolate varieties. 15. Crack up. Studies show that laughing may protect your heart by improving circulation and blood ow. Tell a joke, watch a comedy, or just laugh out loud. 16. Limit saturated fat. Some foods to avoid include: bacon, beef, full-fat dairy, and lard. Read food labels aiming for less than 15-25 grams of saturated fat daily. 17. Choose whole grains. Food like brown rice, barley, oats are packed with ber, antioxidants, and other nutrients. A diet rich in whole grains can help lower cholesterol and improve heart health. 18. Get screened. After age 20 you should get your cholesterol levels tested every 5 years. Discuss your results with your health care provider for recommendations. 19. Tame your sweet tooth. Did you know that the average American consumes 22.2 teaspoons of sugar each day? Thats 335 calories with 0 nutritional value. Soft drinks and sweetened beverages are the #1 source of added sugars in American diets. Try fruit to satisfy your sugar cravings. 20. Catch some Zzzs. If you average less than 8 hours of sleep a night, you could be putting your heart at risk. Getting 8 hours of restful sleep is an important part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. 21. Limit alcohol. Recent headlines about the benets of alcohol are controversial since alcohol can cause other health problems. If you dont drink, dont start. If you do, limit alcohol to one drink daily. 22. Hold the salt. Consuming too much sodium can elevate blood pressure, increasing your heart disease risk. Look for low-sodium foods and try to limit your sodium intake to less than 2,300 mg daily. 23. Know your family history. Certain health risks are partly genetic. For example if your father had a heart attack at a young age, you should start preventive care and screenings sooner yourself. 24. Cook at home. Homemade meals are usually lower in fat, salt, and cholesterol and higher in ber and nutrients. When you do the cooking, you control the ingredients and the cooking methods. 25. Move more. Every bit of activity you do can help you strengthen your heart and maintain your weight. Find opportunities for tness by taking the stairs, parking further away, or doing yard work. 26.

www.DelrayPineapple.com The Delray Beach Pineapple HEARING LOSS AND YOUR LOVE LIFEDelray Beach, FL DID YOU KNOW, people with untreated hearing loss suffer in their closest relationships. According to the National Council on Aging these individuals when compared to hearing aid users report: *Less social activity *More episodes of isolation *More episodes of depression and sadness *More episodes of anxiety and tension These differences were apparent even when age, gender, and severity of hearing loss were accounted for. For our romantic relationships, hearing loss affects our ability to sense romantic cues. Each couple has a unique sense of timing and mood. However, for the partner with untreated hearing impairment the sense of timing is thrown off. It becomes difcult to maintain the fundamental components that built the reltionship initially. The strain on the essential factors of intimacy and passion can challenge the committment of lasting relationships. People give themselves a long term gift of quality of life and improved relationships by seeking treatment for their hearing loss early and promptly. For those struggling with hearing loss well tting hearing aids are the best rst step to improved quality of life! If you do encounter a problem with you hearing, or are in need of supplies for your hearing instruments, please call Hearing Partners at 561-638-6530 or visit www.myhearingpartners.comManage stress and strengthen By Laura Norman Special to The Pineapple Worry and stress affects the circulation, the heart, the glands, the whole nervous system, and profoundly affects heart action. Charles W. Mayo, M.D. Can stress be good? We all have a stress response, which can be life-saving in some situations. The nerve chemicals and hormones released during such stressful times, prepares us to face a threat or ee to safety. When you face a dangerous situation, your pulse quickens, you breathe faster, your muscles tense, your brain uses more oxygen and increases activityall functions aimed at survival. In the short term, it can even boost your immune system. However, with chronic stress, those same nerve chemicals that are life-saving in short bursts can suppress functions that arent needed for immediate survival. Your immunity is lowered and your circulatory, respiratory, digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems stop working normally. If the stress response goes on too long, such as when the source of stress is constant, or if the response continues after the source of stress has subsided, stress becomes a major factor in causing and aggravating dis-ease. People may feel stress in different ways. For example, some people experience mainly chest pain or digestive symptoms, while others may have headaches, sleeplessness, depressed mood, anger, and irritability. People under chronic stress are prone to more frequent and severe viral infections, such as the u or common cold, and vaccines, such as the u shot, are less effective for them. Consider the following: effects from stress. for stress-related ailments and complaints. as headaches, high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, arthritis, depression, and anxiety. Administration (OSHA) declared stress a hazard of the workplace. Stress costs American industry more than $300 billion annually. disorder is more than 50%, often due to chronic, untreated stress reactions. Changes in health from routine stress may be the hardest to notice at rst. Because the source of stress tends to be more constant than in cases of acute or traumatic stress, the body gets no clear signal to return to normal functioning. Over time, continued strain on your body from routine stress may lead to serious health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, anxiety disorder, and other illnesses. Stress breaks down your immune system, while relaxation strengthens it. Reexology is a proven method for experiencing deep relaxation, healing and stress relief. It soothes the thousands of nerves and the reex areas in your feet, hands, ears and face that enervate each of your organs, glands and every part of your body. Reexology continues to gain acceptance in the medical community as patients experience powerful results. Energy zones/meridians are pathways that travel from your feet and hands up to your head, face and ears. Reexology techniques move the energy and cause circulation to ow back up the body to clear these energy channels by soothing the nerves and stimulating the reex areas. The profound relaxation you experience with reexology reduces vascular constriction so your bodys blood supply can ow more freely. Reexologys healing benets transcend the physical body. Emotional healing is also a common relief associated with Reexology. Heart health is also about opening your heart to allow in love love of yourself and letting in love from others. Reexology is a powerful way to give love to yourself and others. When you love and allow in the love of others, stress is naturally released. How does Reexology work? Imagine each foot as a mirror image of your body. Your toes represent your head, eyes, sinuses; the ball of your foot reects your chest heart and lungs; the arch of your foot represents your digestive system, including your stomach and liver; your heel and ankles reect the reproductive system. Your left foot mirrors the left side of your body, your right foot the right side. Your 10-Minute Lift Starting Out: Sit in a comfortable position in a quiet room. Using a light, absorbent greaseless lotion, massage feet with squeezing, stroking, kneading, wringing motions. Massaging the feet is a great preparation for Reexology. What to Do Hold the ankle, heel or toes of one foot rmly in one hand. Place the thumb of your other hand on the sole of the foot. Apply steady, even pressure with the outer edge or ball of the thumb (keeping the thumb slightly bent at the joint) using a forward, caterpillarlike motion called thumb walking. Press one spot, move a little forward, press again, and so on. When you reach the toes, return to the heel area, pick a new spot and repeat the process. Continue until the entire bottom of the foot has been worked. Then do the top of the foot, using your ngers, called nger walking. Repeat on the other foot. Relaxation is more than a luxury. It allows you to fully claim your birthright of abundant health and emotional well-being. Do it for yourself, and for your loved ones. The simple truth is that happy people generally dont get sick.

www.DelrayPineapple.com The Delray Beach Pineapple Medical and psychotherapeutic advances in addiction treatment days is what most people think of when addiction treatment is mentioned. This actually was the case for so many years, even though the success rates were very low. Most people are unaware that the 28-day model was based on insurance reimbursement limits and not on any actual science. This, along with very limited medical and psychological treatment options, are major reasons why success rates were so low for so many years. Modern medical science and psychotherapeutic modalities have now entered the addiction arena full force and have drastically changed both the quality and accessibility of addiction treatment. The mechanisms of addiction have a very strong biologic and physiologic basis, in addition to the psychological and spiritual components. It makes perfect sense then that the right kinds of medical interventions would have a strong positive impact on sobriety. These types of treatments, especially when coupled with psychological treatment, have consistently yielded previously never seen high success rates. These interventions have been developed and implemented over the last several years and have become the new standards of care in addiction treatment. A treatment modality really needs to work if it is to receive a medical indication by the FDA, even more so if it is to become the standard of care. Subutex and Suboxone, for the treatment of opiate or pain pill addiction, have emerged as the new standard of care with unparalleled success rates. These medications have revolutionized addiction treatment, creating a major shift from the old day inpatient care model to an outpatient model. Patients no longer have to go away to rehab and can actually detox while still working and caring for their families. Both of these medications have Buprenorphine, an opiate agonist-antagonist that binds to the opiate receptor and exerts an effect while blocking conventional opiates, as the primary active ingredient. Buprenorphine neutralizes much of the extreme and exaggerated biological drive to use opiates, resulting in a drastic reduction in cravings. Some receive Subutex just for detoxication. Others benet from a daily dose or maintenance with Suboxone, which profoundly suppresses opiate cravings and would actually interfere with any opiates consumed in a relapse. These daily doses have a stabilizing effect and are in no way intoxicating when taken correctly. Patients that are properly treated with Buprenorphine are usually perfectly alert, energetic and feel generally very good. They do not get or look high while taking this medication, remaining fully functional. The leveling of the playing eld created by these medications gives individuals a fair chance at working on their sobriety without the burden of obsessive cravings. A person taking Subutex or Suboxone appropriately, as prescribed by a qualied physician, is considered to be fully clean and sober. Relapse rates have fallen drastically when these medical treatments are combined with psychological treatments, greatly improving the prognosis for motivated and compliant patients. Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, commonly referred to as DBT, has also emerged as the new standard of care for psychotherapeutic treatments for addiction. Numerous clinical trials have shown DBT to be highly effective in the treatment of numerous disorders including Borderline Personality Disorder, mood disorders, cooccurring disorders, and self-destructive behavior. It has been adapted for the treatment of substance abuse and eating disorders with successful results. DBT skills training helps clients learn and apply productive coping skills that will decrease emotional dysregulation and unhealthy reactions to strong emotions. DBT skills are divided into 4 categories. Mindfulness Skills teach participants to observe, describe and participate in thoughts, sensations, emotions and external phenomenon without judging these experiences as good or bad. Interpersonal Effectiveness Skills teach participants to successfully assert their needs and manage conict in their relationships. Emotional regulation skills help participants identify and manage emotional reactions in healthy and adaptive ways. Distress Tolerance Skills help group members learn ways to accept and tolerate distress without resorting to negative or destructive behaviors. DBT does require a strong commitment from participants in order to participate effectively. Committed participants do exceptionally well though, with very high long-term sobriety rates. Strong motivation and treatment compliance are essential for successful treatment of any type. Knowledge of available treatment options is equally as important. Anyone who seeks treatment needs to be informed and not limit his or her options due to ignorance or fear of something new. Do your own research and speak to qualied professionals when making major treatment decisions. Do not rely on forceful yet unqualied opinions from nonprofessionals, however well intentioned the opinions may be. Make your own treatment decisions based on the preponderance of information you nd and on what makes sense to you.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com www.DelrayPineapple.com FEBRUARY 2013Delray Beach Housing Authority breaks ground on Village Square units in Southwest Delray BeachThe Delray Beach Housing Authority (DBHA) held a ground breaking ceremony on Tuesday, January 15, 2013, to celebrate the commencement of Village Square, a revitalization (economic development) project that will offer 259 affordable residential housing units in the southwest area of Delray Beach. Village Square, located at 770 SW 12th Terrace, will promote a mixed-income community by providing rental and homeownership opportunities for our elderly, workforce and low income families. The project is expected to be completed by June 2014. Construction will be completed in three (3) phases: Phase 1 Elderly (84 rental apartment units), Phase 2 Multi-Family (144 rental apartment units) and Phase 3 Single Family (31 single family homes). The total cost of the project, $38.4 million, is being funded by the Florida Tax Exempt Bond Financing ($5.9 million), the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency ($2.7 million) Private Capital Contributions ($10 million) and tax credits by the Florida Housing Finance Corporation ($19.8 Million). Dorothy Ellington, Executive Director for the Delray Beach Housing Authority, states This construction project is projected to add more than 100 construction jobs and approximately 10 permanent jobs to the Delray Beach community and will positively contribute to the Citys tax. The Partnership, which includes the Delray Housing Group, a nonprot subsidiary of the Authority, will contract with a private company skilled in managing Tax Credit developments so as to protect the substantial investments and long term viability of the community. In addition, a superior security plan has been developed and will be maintained over the life of the development. This will remain a great asset for the City of Delray Beach and the Southwest neighborhood. Village Square, formerly known as the Carver Estates Public Housing Complex, encompasses approximately eighteen (18) acres of vacant land at SW 7th Street to the north, SW 10th Street to the south, Delray Beach Cemetery to the east and NW 13th Avenue/Auburn Avenue to the west. For more information, contact the Delray Beach Housing Authority at (561) 272-6766 or visit www.dbha.org. By Jamie Salen The Pineapple Staff Writer Art is a nations most precious heritage. For it is in our works of art that we reveal to ourselves and to others the inner vision which guides us as a nation. And where there is no vision, the people perish. Lyndon Johnson, on signing into existence the National Endowment on the Arts The transformation of Delray Beach over the past 20 years has succeeded in attracting a new audience to the area. What appears to many as a lighting speed makeover was in fact years of hard work and collaboration. Carefully focused on preserving, revitalizing and showcasing the best of what was already here, rather than erasing the past and erecting a planned city. For the purposes of this story (which we will get to in a moment), lets use the analogy of a rediscovered piece of ancient art. When rst discovered, it seems years of neglect have stolen the beauty and diluted the meaning, but careful and thoughtful reconstruction and restoration can bring to the surface the very elements that made the work of art beautiful and inspired when it was rst created. This proved to be a common thread for so much of what Matthew Gracey has accomplished for the Delray Beach community. Having grown up in Delray Beach, Gracey brought the love of a native to his role as a founding member of the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) and a major force beyond the conversion of Old School Square, from school house to historical site. He was an important part of the vision for Delray Beach that focused redevelopment on combining our rich history with modern improvements. His latest project is just another example of that vision. The Art House of Delray may be one of many current community endeavors focused on encouraging and enrichment the ne arts, but one aspect of the new artfocused venue that is undeniably is the address it occupies. 255 NE 6th Ave was the art center of Graceys youth. For most of the 1970s and 80s the space housed The Delray Art Center. He stumbled upon the building while searching for a space to showcase his own artwork and as soon as he realized the history of the building, he knew what it was meant to be. As a long time businessman, Gracey had only recently begun experimenting with painting, and as a new artist, he could appreciate the need for a safe space for others like him to nd encouragement and inspiration. Having been reintroduced to the art center of his youth, he knew the venue, which had been turned into a sprawling bachelor pad, was destined for being lled with art once again. Enlisting the help of long time artist Michele Ferry, the founder of ReCreate Art Studios, a program for Kids Helping Kids in America, Gracey put the 7,600 square foot space into her capable hands and today the venue has been transformed into an all-purpose community art center for children, teens and adults. A non-prot in the process of becoming a 501c(3), the Art House of Delray hosts all forms of contemporary art exhibitions including interactive sculpture, multimedia artwork, video and audio installations, photography, painting and performance art. We want to encourage thoughtful interaction and dialogue, using art as the catalyst, says Ferry. Not only will community members have the opportunity to view exhibitions, the venue also offers classes for all ages, as well as an area where emerging and mid-career artists can rent wall space without paying commissions on sales. The Art House of Delray also offers studios where developing artists have access to materials and equipment not readily available to those just starting out. As a non-prot, all funds earned from exhibitions, events and classes go directly into the programs. The venue also houses a full commercial kitchen and special event space, providing another source of revenue for further programing. We denitely plan to expand our programs into the community by offering outreach beyond our front doors, Ferry adds. Currently, the organization has a board position specically dedicated to volunteer and outreach program development. One program already in place offers community service hours for teens in which donations of school supplies, book and household items are accepted and sorted by the teens themselves on designated evenings at the center to benet the RCMA Farm Workers Association in Delray Beach. Delray Beach has certainly developed a reputation as a place where art is appreciated, encouraged and enjoyed and the Art House of Delray is another valued opportunity to foster and grow the seeds that have been planted by the art programing at Old School Square, Artist Alley, the Milagro Center, The Beat Cup, the Arts Garage and so many more. With cut-backs in arts education in public schools everywhere, Delray Beach is an example to the country on how a community can come together to provide enrichment for itself. Each initiative spearheaded by thoughtful citizens in our growing community in another meaningful stroke of the brush on the canvas that will be our very own masterpiece, to be appreciated and learned from for years to come.

MARKET IMPROVING, ACCORDING TO PALM BEACH REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONALS PALM BEACH, FL The Harelik Team, realtors based in Palm Beach County who specialize in over 55 communities, has gathered a 24 month history showing that the Palm Beach real estate market has grown healthier and is likely to continue improving through 2013. Using both anecdotal evidence and statistical data obtained from Trendgraphics Inc, the Harelik Team has highlighted key areas demonstrating this positive trend. During the period of December 2010 through November 2011, the available homes for sale decreased by 14.25%. In addition, 11,790 homes were sold in the 2011 period; by comparison, 12,731 homes were sold in the 2012 period, a year-to-year increase of 941 homes, or 7.4%. Between these two periods, the average sales price for a home went from $332,000 to $344,000 an increase of $12,000, or 3.5%. According to Joel Harelik of The Harelik Team, In essence, 2012 was a better year for Palm Beach real estate than 2011; furthermore, the growth has been consistently sustained for a long period of time: over the past two years, the ratio of selling price to list price went up from 89.25% to 91%, while the average day a home remained on the market decreased by 3.9%. Therefore, not only have home sales grown in frequency, but properties are increasingly selling faster and closer to their preferred price. The Harelik Teams report identied several factors driving this rebound, including lower interest rates, fewer homes in inventory, and increased home sales (which increases selling prices). Additionally, the team noted that Palm Beachs real estate market is uniquely active throughout the year, owing to its diverse market of homebuyers that alternate throughout the year, such as foreign visitors, retirees, single-families, and snowbirds (residents from Canada and the Northern United States who purchase second homes for the winter). The long-term sustainability of this trend, coupled with the year-round activity in Palm Beachs real estate market, suggests that 2013 will be a healthy year for Palm Beach real estate.Front row: DaVita Teammates Susan Carroll, Martha Saa, Carol Baird, Marcous Gardner, Vicki Burrier, CEO of Gulfstream Goodwill Industries Marvin Tanck and DaVita Teammate Rosalie Co.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com This month we are going to talk about co-ops, or more formally known as cooperatives, and how they differ from the more common condominiums we see in Florida. Best described by Wikipedia A housing cooperative is a legal entityusually a corporationthat owns real estate. The corporation is membership based, with membership granted by way of a share purchase in the cooperative. Each shareholder in the legal entity is granted the right to occupy one housing unit. A primary advantage of the housing cooperative is the pooling of the members resources so that their buying power is leveraged, thus lowering the cost per member in all the services and products associated with home ownership. Another key element is that the members, through their elected representatives, screen and select who may live in the cooperative, unlike any other form of home ownership. A condominium, or condo, is the form of housing tenure and other real property where a specied part of a piece of real estate (usually of an apartment house) is individually owned, while use of and access to common facilities in the piece such as hallways, heating system, elevators, exterior areas is executed under legal rights associated with the individual ownership and controlled by the association of owners that jointly represent ownership of the whole piece. In Delray there are a few co-op buildings and they are primarily on the beach side of town. You may have driven by one of these buildings and loved the location, but when you began to search for information online about available units you came up with nothing but dead ends. Although Delrays co-ops very rarely seem to make it to the general market, understanding the difference between this form of ownership and a condominium can come in handy when making a decision. When considering a co-op or traditional condominium, it is my opinion that you have to think long term. If you are looking for an investment to keep as a family asset for generations to come, a co-op may be the way to go, as there may be little or no concern as to reselling the unit. If there is a chance that you may want to resell the unit in a shorter time frame, having the clearly dened physical asset of a condo could be more attractive. Either way, keep in mind there are different restrictions than typically afforded to you in a single family home. There may be regulations on pets, length of renting out the unit if rental is allowed at all, and some buildings have rules that change depending on whether the owner is living there or has a tenant occupying the unit. For example, they may allow pets up to 25 pounds for owners but will not approve a tenant with a pet. As in any real estate transaction, it is always a good idea to employ an attorney with specic expertise in the type of real estate you are purchasing. State law requires you to have ample time to review the necessary documents to make a decision of whether or not you can work within the community guidelines.by Kurt Lehmannwww.kurtlehmann.com real estate Local kitchen designer featured for dramatic remodeling in South FloridaJill Greenes Sand Castle Kitchens & More is the areas exclusive woman-Centric design businessSouth Floridas Jill Greene has been featured in two industry publications this month for her dramatic remodeling of a condo in Delray Beach. Greene runs Sand Castle Kitchens & More, the areas only womancentric design and remodeling rm. The design is on the January cover of Kitchen & Bath Design News, and featured in their Transformations section, highlighting dramatic changes in before/after pictures. Greenes work is also published in the January Kitchen and Bath Edition of Florida Designer Homes. Your house isnt just your home, its your castle, says Greene, and at Sand Castle Kitchens and More, we will work closely with you to make your dreams a reality. Sand Castles woman-centric approach focuses on four major areas of a homes livability: entertaining, exible living space, storage space, and de-stressing areas. Greene says her designs intuitively appeal to women, but the practical concepts are very popular with men. Recent industry research shows women are making more than 80% of residential remodeling and 90% of new home buying decisions. As the exclusive licensed woman-centric professional in Palm Beach, Broward, and Martin counties, Greene believes she can change the way people enjoy their homes. Over the many years Ive been in this industry, Ive seen how women inuence and make most of the decisions. With our approach, we focus on how individuals and families want their home to live. In addition to marketing to women, Greenes Aging-In-Place specialty helps customers remodel homes that t their ability and changing lifestyle. Both approaches to design start with listening to the customer and working cooperatively toward a personalized solution. Although Greenes designs have gotten national attention, she is committed to supporting other local businesses in South Florida. She partners with local cabinet makers for her kitchens, and continues to nd other local partners for her designs. She makes every effort to ensure her designs use American and environmentally conscious products. I am proud that my latest remodel is getting national attention, says Greene, and I look forward to creating more magazine cover-worthy designs in South Florida that are both functional and beautiful.

www.DelrayPineapple.com The Delray Beach Pineapple By Jim Smith, SAFE Chairman Special to The PineappleUndoubtedly, the most confusing, frustrating, and potentially fatal intersection in Downtown Delray Beach is at Pineapple Grove and N. E. 1 Street.Thats what thirty-two respondents emailed in response to SAFEs request to share any personal experiences or observations at that intersection. Here are a few of their comments: I was an outside leasing manager at Meisner Electric campus, by Brus Room and Solita for 12 years. I saw so many near missesId support a light there. Cecelia Boone, Southdale Properties I agree something needs to be done there, but a 4 way stop would be sufcient in my opinion. The confusion is happening because it looks like a four way stop but it is not. Thank you. Connor Lynch, Plastridge Insurance and Chair of the Planning & Zoning Board I believe a trafc signal IS needed at 1st and Pineapple Way (2nd avenue). I have seen many close calls with pedestrians, cars and bikers. It should be a major priority. Regards, Bill Morris, Chief Executive, Southcoast Partners, LLC Jim, please keep up the good work. My only memorable observation is that cars traveling west on 1st Street more often than not STOP at the intersection even though there is no stop sign. Consequently, trafc there can become confusing, especially when several cars on Pineapple Grove take advantage of the stopped car and begin running THEIR stop sign. One day, I tooted my horn at a lady who abruptly stopped at the intersection in front of me. She actually got out of her car and approached me, yelling WHATS YOUR PROBLEM?? I responded that there is no stop sign and that she was holding up trafc. She appeared confused. So, I think a trafc signal might assist in preventing accidents since many folks believe they should stop regardless! D. Boone When driving west on 1st, I ALWAYS slow down as drivers do not look when crossing. I would recommend a four way stop, for all to stop. Drivers are racing through to beat the trafc and the Swinton Ave. light. Nancy Schneider Yes! We need a light there or a four way stop. No one drives it comfortably. Biking is hard all over town. No bike lanes and busy sidewalks! Annette Annechild I agree that there should be a stop sign at the intersection of Pineapple Grove and NE1st St. One thing that has been brought up many times, but I dont see much change, is the sidewalk seating at the restaurants on Atlantic. There is very little space to walk by these tables and one is forced to walk between the trees and the curb to pass by. Thank you for all you do for our safety. Lynn M. Korp, Renaissance Restoration Studio A trafc light is now necessary with the increased volume. S. Chloe Bedenbaugh I believe a trafc light in Pineapple Grove/1st would be good At the very least, a 4 way stop sign. Suzanne Donohue I cross the intersection in question very often and I strongly believe that a four-way stop would be a perfect solution. Trafc signals are not always the best solution for local streets such as Pineapple Grove and SE 1 Street. Thank you for your hard work as SAFE Chairman. Ana DeMelo YES. Something needs to be done at that intersection. Even before Hyatt Place, for years I have been petried of that intersection every time I drive east or west on 1st. The people coming north / south on pineapple dont realize that it isnt a 4 way-stop and routinely just pull out. Or people driving on E-W on 1st assume it is a 4-way stop and stop anyway, which confuses drivers behind them who know the intersection doesnt have a stop and arent slowing down. Given the level of trafc in both directions there, plus pedestrian trafc, all of which is increasing, I continue to wonder why there isnt a 4-way stop (or something else) there. Thanks for all the work you do. Joe Snider Something should be done maybe a 4-way STOP sign will be faster than a trafc light. Sam Spear Jr. People going east and west many times come to a stop, when they are not supposed to, and clog trafc. Make it a 4 way stop or a trafc light. Robert Hickok I am a disabled veteran and a resident of Pineapple Grove. I truly love the area, but yes, there are difculties. I am paralyzed and operate an electric wheelchair with my chin. The difculties I experience when traveling downtown are numerous. The restaurants and bars have taken over much of the sidewalk. Add to that the streetlights and plantings and there is very little room for pedestrian trafc. In most places you are lucky to nd three feet of access, and in some places, two feet. Add to that the complication of bicycles on the sidewalk instead of their legal position on the road and it becomes nearly impassable at times. As far as the trafc light, I also say yes. Crossing the intersection is an enormous challenge, and frankly very dangerous. Those stop signs do nothing to make drivers pay attention and I cannot count the number of close calls I have had there. I have no doubt that if I was to bring this up in a legal proceeding I could easily win my case. It is time for someone to step up and x the downtown area so it is accessible to everyone. Trey In response to these emails, SAFE met with Delray Beach Chief Engineer Randal Krejcarek to discuss improving safety at this intersection. Next month, SAFE will let you know what the City will, or will not do. Also, SAFE will publish its analysis of the problem. If you have any suggestions on how to make Delray Beach safer for motorists, pedestrians, or bicyclists, please let me know jamesejimchar@aol.com.GUEST COMMENTARY: DELRAY BEACHCITY DIRECTORYDelray Beach City Hall 100 NW 1st Avenue Delray Beach, Florida 33444 www.mydelraybeach.comGeneral Information (561) 243-7000 Emergency 9-1-1 Non-Emergency (561) 243-7800 Citizen Service Requests (561) 243-7012 City Managers Ofce (561) 243-7010 Utility Billing (561) 243-7100 Water/Sewer Maint.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com By Harvey Brown Special to The Pineapple Question: How much liability coverage should I carry? Answer: It depends upon who you injure! That may sound like a callous statement but the fact is, if you hit the wrong person, a person who would cost you a fortune in a court case, you quickly realize adequate liability insurance is a must. Liability insurance, whether its for automobile, homeowners, or business insurance, is coverage that protects you if you are sued by an injured party. Lawsuit costs against you by the party you injured can include, not only their lost income, but also their pain and suffering, medical bills, and even loss of consortium (inability of ones spouse to have normal marital relations). Heres an example of what could happen to you. Lets say youre involved in an auto accident and you are at fault (i.e. you are liable). Depending upon who you hit, you may nd (to your horror) that your insurance limit might be completely inadequate. If the injured person is a young professional, age 30, making $75,000/year presently, you can see that your $100,000 per person/$300,000 per accident liability insurance plan wont begin to cover just the lost income this person would generate over their lifetime. On top of this, a jury may award a large sum for pain and suffering, whether the person you hit is a high earner or not. Often the way a legal judgment against you is satised when your insurance is inadequate is through conscation of your assets and/or garnishment of your wages. In my experience, Ive seen many examples of coverage limits reduced to ridiculously low levels in order to sell a cheap policy. My customers want competitive pricing but not poor coverage, so we protect them by advising them to carry as high a bodily injury liability limit as their insurance budget will allow. Furthermore, I encourage many of them to consider an umbrella liability policy with a $1,000,000 limit, or even higher. Our insureds have worked hard to achieve success in their life and higher liability limits protect their assets, providing them well deserved peace-of-mind. Lets face it, insurance is all about having peace-of-mind. Next Month: Umbrella season when do you need an insurance umbrella? The Harvey L. Brown Agency are experts in auto, home, business, life/health and represent over 40 companies. If you have questions or concerns about your insurance, DID YOU EVER WONDER ?

Advocates of passive investing believe that the best way to capture overall market returns is to use low cost market tracking indexes. Proponents of active investing believe that a skilled investment manager can generate returns that outperform the benchmark. One of the longest-standing debates is which one is superior and each camp has strong advocates who will argue that the advantages of their approach outweigh those of the other side. I have my own thoughts as to what I prefer, but rst lets look at these two investment approaches and see if one might appeal to you over the other. Active investing: attempt to add value Proponents of active investment management believe that by picking the right investments, taking advantage of market trends, and attempting to manage risk, a good investment manager can generate returns that outperform a benchmark index. For example, an active manager whose benchmark is the Standard & Poors 500 Index (S&P 500) might attempt to earn better-than-market returns by overweighting certain industries or individual securities, allocating more to those sectors than the index does. Or a manager might try to control a portfolios overall risk by temporarily increasing the percentage allocated to more conservative investments, such as cash. Passive investing: focus on costs Advocates of passive investing argue that the best way to capture overall market returns is to use low-cost market-tracking index investments. This approach is based on the concept of the efcient market, which states that because all investors have access to all the necessary information about a company and its securities, its difcult if not impossible to gain an advantage over any other investor and as new information becomes available, market prices adjust in response to reect a securitys true value. Indexing does create certain cost efciencies because the investment simply reects an index, thus no research is required for securities selection. Also, because trading is relatively infrequent, passive portfolios typically buy or sell securities only when the index itself changes and therefore trading costs often are lower and infrequent trading typically generates fewer capital gains distributions, which means greater tax efciency. At this point you may be leaning towards passive investing, placing it on cruise control (Set it and Forget), and all will be good. Nope.Sorry. its not as easy as that, so lets continue. As stated earlier in this column I have my own preference with regard to investing and which is really quite simple. I utilize a blended approach and believe that it offers the best of both worlds. Its called the Core & Satellite or Hub & Spoke approach, and it is essentially an asset allocation mix that seeks to end the debate about indexing versus active portfolio management. Instead of following one investment approach or the other, the core/satellite hub/ spoke utilizes some combination of each. The core/hub of my investment dollars are kept in cost-efcient passive investments designed to capture market returns by tracking a specic benchmark. The balance of the portfolio is then invested in a series of satellite/spoke investments, in many cases actively managed, which typically have the potential to boost returns and lower overall portfolio risk. For example: popular core investments often track broad benchmarks such as the S&P 500, the Russell 2000 Index, the NASDAQ 100, and various international and bond indices. Satellite investments might include hedge funds, private equity, real estate, stocks of emerging companies, or sector funds, to name but a few. Regardless of whether you are a believer in passive, active or prefer the blended approach, you should keep in mind that no strategy guarantees a prot or fully protects you against a loss. When you invest, be sure to carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses, of that particular investment before doing so.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com On Friday, January 18th Jule Guaglardi, owner of Roxy Lulu Boutique (in the Pineapple Grove district of Delray Beach), partnered with the DDA (Downtown Development Authority) to organize Delrays Fabulous Fashion Show. Ms. Guaglardi was accompanied by Arlene Roberts, of Better Party Rentals, as they hosted the show, while musical performers, the No Pressure Band and Matthew Farmer kicked off the evening. The fashion show was held on East Atlantic Avenue in front of the Colony Hotel showcasing some 40 merchants from the downtown area, and raising over $1200 towards a scholarship for the Lynn University Fashion Department. Fourteen fashion students and faculty volunteered to assist with the event led by Dr. Dandeo. Delrays Fabulous Fashion Show served as part of the DDAs Night & Day in Downtown Delrays Marketing Awareness campaign, highlighting Art & Fashion month. The goal of the program is to bring awareness to the uniqueness and one-ofa-kind appeal offered by the Downtown Delray Beach shops. With that said, over 40 boutiques and salons participated in the show, showcasing more than 100 different looks in each of the four categories: Casual, Beach, Resort and Evening. The audience grew to over 2000 people, which overlooked an elevated 40-foot runway. Thanks to the hard work of Jule Guaglardi, Laura Simon, Marjorie Ferrer, and the many merchant, University and model volunteers, the show was a great success! Special thanks to the sponsors of the show: The Colony Hotel and Cabana Club, Better Party Rentals, Roxy Lulu, All Florida Trees and Eassa Properties LLP.

On the contrary, several designers credit regular people as inspirations for their collections. Primarily, though, the clothes that grace the glamorous catwalks in the most fabulous cities in the world are aspirational for us regular folk. And lets be honest, sometimes they arent all that inspiring or to die for, theyre just plain weird and leave us wondering, who would ever actually wear that? True, a lot of Fashion is artistic expression, cultural reection and wacky, surreal musings of designers who nd correlations between things like Truman Capotes Society Swans and The Jetsons for their collections. In my personal quest to live a Fashionable life, to be a dedicated follower of the industry, to understand it, dissect it and most of all, love it, I have managed (with the help of bloggers, writers and Joan Rivers on E!) to view the collections and attempt to bring them to life. Here are my Top 5 Spring 2013 Runway Trends that no one should be afraid of or scoff at. And that are accessible, affordable and fun. Because to me, thats what it all comes down to. 1. Sporty Dresses. Little A-line frocks in solid colors or prints were all over the runways. These sleeveless or short-sleeve numbers are comfortable, (generally cotton blends) and are cool, easy and chic. Wear them with ballet ats, ip-ops or cute little sneakers or dress them up with a wedge. Flattering and sophisticated, these dresses are great go-to wardrobe staples for Spring. 2. Black and White. While women have been obsessing in recent months over 50 shades of grey, for Spring, its all about black and white. Letting go of the usual pastel colors that we often associate with this time of year, black and white together make dressing effortless. Pair a black top with white shorts and chunky black sandals or choose polka dots or stripes in the two colors. Nothing looks more pulled together and screams Style! than head to toe black and white. 3. Bermuda Shorts. Designers like DKNY, Chloe and Rag and Bone showed Bermuda shorts for Spring and that should make us all very happy! Theyre fun and wearable for women of every age and look super hip with a little t-shirt or tank. Nice to see a departure from super short shorts, as Im a rm believer that these should be purged from the wardrobes of every woman over 24. 4. Leather. While leather can be hot to wear and can be challenging, several of the designers showed soft, owy leather skirts, t-shirts with leather detailing, and supple, little leather jackets. To avoid looking like a fashion victim, keep your leather pieces cohesive with the rest of your look and dont go head-to-toe. For affordability, choose faux leather pieces. Its okay, just call them vegan and youll score even more cool points. 5. Leggings and Skinnies. The comeback of the legging has done wonders for our outt options. They are so simple and can look so fashionable if worn properly. Black leggings are the Queen Bee and are the most versatile. Just keep in mind the rules of the body-con pants; no crop tops and tight on tight is best worn by the blessed few. The Pineappledelray beach newspaper

Billboard Magazine called Michael Cavanaugh the New Voice of the American Rock & Roll Songbook. This charismatic performer, musician and actor was made famous for his piano/lead vocals in the Broadway Musical Movin Out. Cavanaugh was handpicked by Billy Joel to star in title role. Michael appeared in the show for 3 years and over 1200 performances, receiving accolade after accolade, which culminated in 2003 with both Grammy and Tony award nominations. Michael began playing at age 7, when his parents bought their rst piano. Encouraged by family and friends, and inspired by his hero Billy Joel, Michael formed his rst band at age 10 and began playing local functions, ne-tuning the craft that would become his chosen career. His rst full time gig as a musician was an extended engagement in Orlando Florida at a piano bar called Blazing Pianos. In January of 1999, Michael received an offer that would unknowingly change his life, with an opportunity to play Las Vegas at the famed New York, New York Hotel and Casino. It was there that Billy Joel spotted Michael and joined him on stage one fateful night of February 2001.

Michael closed up shop at New York, New York and moved to New York City to work alongside Billy Joel and Twyla Tharp, to shape the Broadway Musical that would be called Movin Out.

The Shape of Things exhibition commences with the opening reception Sunday, February 10, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm and runs through Friday, April 19, 2013. When I was a child, says Slutsky of Boynton Beach, FL, there was something about the illusions magicians created that captured my imagination. I want that same vivid sense of illusions to be central in my artwork. Today, all of my work creates the illusion of movement and three dimensionality. I achieve these effects by juxtaposing hard-edged color patterns that disrupt the normal process of vision. Some shapes of color may seem to advance and then recede and others appear to pulsate in waves. Slutskys artworks are created with astounding geometric precision and vibrant colors that make him stand apart. Slutskys art work is in many ne art galleries, he has exhibited in numerous community venues in Florida, including Art in Public Places and Museums and permanent Collections throughout the United States. My art is a passion of painstaking, semiscientic approach to painting based on the manipulation of optical devices, and which depends on subtle color gradations, systematic chromatic harmonic lines and shapes, continues Slutsky. I hope my work will stimulate and provoke a positive emotional response in the viewers mind just like the magicians did when I was a child. The Weisman Delray Community Center is located at 7091 West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach and is open to the public at no charge.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com Ethel Waters: His Eye Is On The SparrowThe Delray Beach Playhouse presents the South Florida premiere of Ethel Waters: His Eye Is On The Sparrow. This riveting musical play tells the story of one of Americas pioneer black entertainers. After enduring an abusive, povertyridden childhood, Ethel Waters gradually sang her way from saloons on Philadelphias skid-row to Vaudeville to Broadway and (eventually) to Hollywood. Chosen by Irving Berlin to star in his review As Thousands Cheers, she became the rst black female star in history to receive star billing in a Broadway show. She later became a versatile trailblazer in Hollywood starring in both musicals (like Cabin In The Sky) and dramatic lms (like Member Of The Wedding). Originally billed as Sweet Mama Stringbean, Ethel Waters developed a unique style that inspired composers like Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin and Dietz and Schwartz to create for her such signature songs as Stormy Weather, Dinah, Heat Wave, Taking a Chance on Love and Am I Blue? The role of Ethel Waters will be played by Evelyn Russell, an actress who studied at The Actors Studio and currently sings with the Michael Rose Orchestra as a member of the Vocal Group The Rosebuds. Through February. 10, 2013 Tuesday Saturday at 8:00PM Saturday & Sunday at 2:00PM Ticket price: $30 For further information call the Playhouse Box Ofce 561-272-1282 ext 4. www.delraybeachplayhouse.com Evelyn RussellONEonONE Arts Garages Lou Tyrrell Talks to Famed Playwright Israel HorovitzLou Tyrrell, Artistic Director of Theatre at Arts Garage, is thrilled to announce that famed playwright Israel Horovitzs latest work, Gloucester Blue, will make its world premiere at the Delray Beach venue. Master story-teller Israel Horovitz continues his Gloucester Series of plays, using the intimate locale of Gloucester, MA, to tell epic stories of sex, murder, and intrigue. Israel Horovitz is one of our nest American playwrights living today, said Tyrrell. His understanding of what drives us as human beings is original, unique, and completely theatrical. He is an artistic treasure, and to produce a world premiere of one of his plays at Arts Garage is a thrill and an honor. Gloucester Blue is an example of American playwriting at its best. As Tyrrell and Horovitz planned for the opening, they conducted a very special one-one-one interview for The Pineapple. LT: As one of Americas most successful and prolic playwrights, is there any specic goal you have as an artist, going forward? IH: Difcult for me to conceptualize goals for my work. My focus is really individual plays and thoughts about what people need from my play what my play has a right to take up an audiences time. I suppose I do have a goal to go forward as opposed to moving through a rear-view mirror into repetition of work Ive done in the past simply said, to create work that is fresh and relevant both for me and for younger, newer audiences. Gloucester Blue is certainly a departure for me in terms of its lm noir style and possibly a departure in terms of its purpose. The play is really dark and really funny a blend of blackheart and lightheart. LT: You are the most produced American playwright in other countries around the world. What is it about your plays that so compel theatres in other cultures to produce them? IH: Its possibly because I have excellent translators and my plays improve in translation. Joking aside, its sort of a mystery to me, really. Its so incredibly lucky. Ive had something like fty of my plays translated and performed in France, alone. Im given to explain this in interviews in France by saying In another life, I must have been an escargot Interest in my plays in Europe is possibly because my roots are in Europe. My plays tend to be more emotional than intellectual Perhaps emotion translates easily to other cultures. LT: You are well known for your Gloucester plays. Is there something special about this little Massachusetts town that feeds your stories in a particular way? IH: When I got out of grad school in the mid-1970s, I wrote a trilogy set in my hometown Wakeeld, Massachusetts. The three 3-act plays were rife with literary illusion. At that time, I was driving up to Connecticut to have dinner with Thornton Wilder, who was a hero of mine. Mr. Wilder was nearly ninety years old and not able to get around easily. When we met together, we talked about playwriting, and about life. He read my Wakeeld Plays and was extremely attering in his praise. But, at the end of it all, Thornton Wilder spoke one sentence that would alter the course of my playwriting for years and years to come. He ended his praise of The Wakeeld Plays with ... Of course, there isnt very much Wakeeld in those plays. Spoken by Thornton Wilder, who had created Grovers Corners, New Englands best-known, best-loved small-town, I listened. His ten-word sentence, had, for me, great meaning, and great impact. If my Wakeeld plays would be nothing else, they would be brim-full of Wakeeld. I began to write a complementing, quite-short play called Hopscotch in which I tried to capture the dialogue and dialect I grew up hearing as a kid which is to say I tried to recreate the way people actually spoke in my time in Wakeeld, Massachusetts. Ten pages into the writing of the play, I was hooked. I loved the fact that the characters in Hopscotch spoke with such a specic and arcane language. It sounded familiar and, more importantly, it sounded true. It was true. Obviously Wilder was on to something, because Hopscotch was quickly translated and performed around the globe. A few years later, I started writing plays set in Gloucester, my adopted hometown, where I have a small house and a small theatre. These Gloucester plays used Gloucester dialogue and dialect, as well as touching actual social problems of the town. This all added in a sense of place to my plays by actually mentioning existing Gloucester landmarks, family names, street names, problems of the working class, problems of the rich and poor. It all contributed to an illusion of truthfulness. Audiences believed the plays and were able to easily identify with the people of these plays. Initially, in writing the Gloucester plays, I wanted to call attention to a working-class town in which working-class life was disappearing. Gloucester once had a great and powerful shing industry. In my own lifetime, I watched a workforce of more than a thousand dockworkers lumpers shrink to the dozen or so union stevedores of 2013 Gloucester. This issue of a shrinking working class was as real and true for Bremerhaven, Germany, as it was for Gloucester. LT: What is it about Gloucester Blue that sets it apart from your other Gloucester plays? IH: As I mentioned earlier, Gloucester Blue is written in a style Id never tried before. I started with the idea of two guys painting a room painting over years of history and a multitude of sins. Dramatizing the multitude of sins was great fun and led me to a style I never tried before a style that ts Lou Tyrrells sensibility as a director like the proverbial glove. And the spirit of Arts Garage is quirky and clever with cabaret tables and chairs and a unique bring-your-own food and drink policy. Its a really special way to see a play. LT: As a master playwright whose career has spanned more than a few decades, what is your perspective on how the theatre has evolved as the world has changed? IH: When I arrived in New York, 50 years ago, people like Harold Clurman and Lee Strasberg were still alive and reminiscing about days of The Group Theatre and writers like Clifford Odets. It occurred to me, even back then, that Odets had grown up in a hugely different world a world in which television didnt exist, and movies were more like lmed stage-plays. Even in my early years as a produced playwright, theatre was still an extremely popular form of entertainment. Today, it simply isnt. Audiences for my early plays were a blend of people of all ages, but mostly young people. What was Odets theatre seems a planet away from theatre of 2013. As theatergoers grow older, they are not ipso-facto being replaced by younger theatergoers. Todays challenge is to lure/attract young people into our theatres for what may well be their rst experience with stage plays. Its not a hopeless problem. Its just a difcult problem. More and more young writers dream of lifetime in television or movies, not theatre. As playwrights tend to write about their own wants and needs, fewer and fewer plays are being written about young people. Because I have ve children, I suppose Ive been closer to the problems of younger people -their wants and needs and so many of my plays, including recent plays, concern themselves with younger characters. Again, nding a young audience isnt an unsolvable problem. Its just a hard game. But younger audiences must be found and nurtured. There will always be theatre. The experience of watching live actors perform is magical. Always was, always will be.

www.DelrayPineapple.com The Delray Beach Pineapple 7 Dianne E. Adams Introduces 140 NE 2ND AVE. DELRAY BEACH | STUDIOSEVENHAIRDELRAY.COM CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT: 561.859.1737 REALLY REALLY REALLY GREAT HAIR GOASKMOE Q: What do I look for when choosing a salon or stylist?A: As simple as it may seem to walk into any salon and pick any stylist to x and beautify your hair, there are a few things you need to know. They say location-location-location is important in your quest in choosing a salon. We feel if you nd a good salon/ stylist, its worth the trip for your peace of mind. Finding a location that is trendy and stylish is only a small part. One of the best ways to begin your search is by asking your friends and coworkers for their personal recommendations. We all know someone whose hair cut and highlights always look great, so be sure to inquire about that persons salon and stylist. If someone you know has hair similar in texture or length to yours, her stylist is worth checking out since he or she has experience working with your type of hair. Most people are complimented and nd it attering when you ask their help in nding a hair stylist. Word of mouth is the best form of ease and comfort. First impressions are very important. The front of the salon is usually a good indication of a well maintained salon. As you walk in you should be greeted by the receptionist with a warm and professional personality. Once youve found a salon youre interested in, call and inquire about consultations. Most stylists will offer a free consultation session so that you can get a feel for the stylist and salon. A consultation is also a great opportunity to ask about pricing, services, and appointment availability. Throughout your consultation, be sure to pay attention to your interaction with the hair stylist. You should not be the only one with questions; your stylist should ask you as many questions as you ask them, and they should also inform you if a particular color or style will or will not work with your hair type. (You may bring in photos or magazines as a point of reference to what you would like to achieve) A stylists job is to not only give you the hair style you want, but also to make sure you get one that is achievable and works best for you. Picking out a stylist is not only difcult but extremely essential. The best way to know if your salon is a worthy salon is to do your research. Ask your friends and coworkers about their overall experience. You can go online and check reviews, to know what others are saying about the salon or the stylist. Make sure they use reputable color and styling products because this will determine the type of salon you are going to. Using inexpensive product or color will determine the nal outcome and integrity of your hair and the longevity of your hair color. In the end it is your decision on where and who you choose to change your look, fulll your wants and make your day. Its simple.A salon is like a pair of shoes. Just because they look good doesnt mean its a good t for you. Try them on and see how they make you look and feel. Good Luck.. Why Ask Moe?

All of this, at your ngertips, in Downtown Delray Beach, Florida. Send along any questions you may have to GoAskMoe@gmail.com Question: I just started seeing a new girl about three weeks ago. Weve gone out several times, get along great, have some things in common, and Im interested in pursuing her. I have one problem though: Valentines Day is right around the corner. I dont know what to do. I havent made any plans, and I dont want to come on too strong, but I feel like I have to do something, right? It already feels awkward in my mind. Answer: The Its Valentines Day and I just started dating someone dilemma can be a serious pain. Sadly, I have misplayed such treacherous territory before, but in blowing it, I gained some understanding of the unpleasant pressures associated with this occasionally barbarous holiday. The best way to avoid this issue altogether is by meeting someone that simply doesnt give a ip about Valentines. You avoid the hassle of crowded, overpriced restaurants with crummy tasting menus, months in advance reservations, and too sugary last minute CVS chocolates. But this might not be a possibility because many people actually enjoy the Holiday. Despite my Valentines bashing, there is value in setting aside a day to remind couples to love and cherish one another romantically and then get frisky. Thats when I like the Holiday, when its a reminder for the couples that wake up in reality next to the bad breath, that see the unpleasant nudity, that have met the demented extended family, to give themselves a nice spit and polish and spend some time with the fantasy person they originally fell for. This is the crux of your issue. Remind each other of what? Of who? You dont even know each other yet! She might be a lovely accepting woman, with wit, intelligence and regal grace in a bowling alley or at a black tie affair. She might be a pushy, close-minded bigot, asking you to walk a tiny dog down to Starbucks as she violently sleeps off last nights bender wearing her make-up. You just dont know! For that matter, she doesnt know you through and through, and is probably eager to discover what exactly is the hell wrong with you. So now Valentines Day has arrived with its romantic expectations, and neither of you are sure you want to get overly romantic yet, certainly not to the point of Love. Probably the best move is to pre-empt the awkwardness. Tell her, Ive been having a great time getting to know you, and want to keep it up, but I dont want this to become awkward because of Valentines Day, how about we... and think of something you both like to do, keep it casual, and avoid all the cleaned up couples spitting woo in every direction. Likely, shell be happy that you acknowledged and addressed a potentially sticky situation, unless she wanted Valentines reworks, and from the tone of your question, that would probably mean she isnt your type anyway. I cant stress enough that if you decide to go in this direction, you must treat the night like a normal date. No wafing or mixed messages. This is a mistake that I have made. You invite a lady over for a quick dinner and a beer. No serious strings in your mind. You are in the market buying some sh to grill and you see a bouquet and youre thinking, Well it is Valentines... and you do something out of character, against your gut. You buy the owers, with a little balloon attached that says: Te amo and you dont know what that means, but it cant be so serious, right? But it is, and now youve been branded a desperate weirdo, even if the evening was obliviously nice. So follow the path youre already on, believe in yourself, dont let some day push you around, and youll be ne.

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com BOCA RATON, FL Having launched their rst South Florida restaurant together in 1980, veteran restaurateurs Burt Rapoport, president and founder of Rapoports Restaurant Group and long time friend and business partner, Dennis Max have opened numerous successful restaurants together over the years. Reconnecting once again, this culinary duo is heading west to open Burt & Maxs Bar and Grille, in what they say is the New Frontier for restaurateurs. Slated to open mid-February, Burt & Maxs will be launching at the long awaited Delray Marketplace, a new 275,000-square-foot lifestyle and entertainment center at 9089 West Atlantic Ave. Rapoport and Max were approached by Kite Realty, founders of the up and coming dining and shopping plaza, who were seeking a sister establishment to the popular Maxs Grille, which they opened together in Mizner Park in 1991. Rapoport and Max decided to take on the project as they felt that West Delray Beach is in need of quality, locally owned restaurants that can provide the clientele living in that area with sophisticated dining options close to their neighborhood. Burt & Maxs gives us the opportunity to highlight the latest dining trends and expand to an area that is mostly made up of corporate chain restaurants, says Rapoport. Shopping plazas and new housing developments are continuing to expand in the West, pushing their limits to the Everglades. West is the new frontier for local restaurateurs and business owners to tap into. Burt & Maxs interiors, conceptualized by South Florida designer Pam Manhas, of Manhas Design, incorporate many natural nishes, reclaimed and aged barn woods, industrial lighting and neutral shades of tans, browns and yellows. The layout will include indoor/outdoor seating areas, two spacious bars, a re pit lounge, lush tropical landscaping, semi private and private dining areas. The focal point of the restaurant will be a wood burning grill and exhibition kitchen. The menus will include some of Maxs Grille popular signature items as well as new innovative additions. Featuring classic and contemporary American cuisine, dining offerings at Burt & Maxs will consist of signature Sharing and Small Plates, such as Onion Soup Dumplings, Sesame Seared Yellown Tuna and Short Rib Empanadas ranging from $9 to $16. From fresh Soups and Salads to Sandwiches such as the Butchers Blend Burger, The Farm House Burger or Blackened Mahi range from $12 to $15. Signature Wood Fired Pizzas include Oak Grille Chicken or Blackened Shrimp and Roasted Tomatoes range from $12 to $14. Large Plate featured items include entres such as Free Range Roasted Half Chicken, Grilled Creekstone Farms NY Strip, and Southern Fried Chicken and Wafes range from $18 to $28. In addition to their regular menu, sophisticated, healthy childrens menu and Rapoports Eat Well. Be Well. Menu, offering gluten free, low calorie options, will also be available.

This hip new restaurant is located just off Atlantic Avenue in the historic old location of the Falcon House, also a Delray favorite. Ceviches menu is an adventurous journey through Spain. Come hungry and take your time. Order in stages so you dont get everything all at once. The tapas, or small plates, come out of the kitchen as they are made so forget everything you know about traditional appetizer, salad and dinner dining. Ceviche is all about sharing. It is loud. It is chaotic. It is denitely a cultural experience. The energy of this place is so intoxicating you feel like you have escaped to a place far, far away. Ceviche provides free valet parking and serves their entire menu late night. When we say late, we mean LATE! They serve dinner until Midnight Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and until 2AM on the weekends. Remember in Spain where they dont go out until 10PM, thats Ceviche. Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant began as a single restaurant in Tampa in the late nineties and gradually expanded to St. Petersburg, Orlando, Clearwater, Sarasota and now Delray. It is still family owned and operated.

www.DelrayPineapple.com The Delray Beach Pineapple food/dining Q&A with GreenMarket Vendor Arrowhead BeefBy Paula Detwiller Special to The Pineapple Do grass-fed cattle produce healthier and tastier meat than traditionally corn-fed cattle? A growing number of consumers say yes and theyre helping to support a whole new way of raising, processing, and marketing beef cattle. Since January was National Meat Month, we thought it would be timely to check in with Tom Pellizzetti, co-founder of Arrowhead Beef, at the Delray GreenMarket. Q. So Tom, this is your third year selling Florida grass-fed beef at our market, and sales seem to be climbing steadily. Why do people buy grass-fed beef?A. Two main reasons: nutrition and the way the animals are raised. Grass-fed beef contains from two to six times more heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids than commercially produced beef. Its also much leaner. For example, our ribeye has two grams of fat compared to a typical ribeye, which has 14 grams of fat. And our beef is raised without the use of hormones, antibiotics or even pesticides on the grass. The second reason is all about knowing where your food comes from. Our customers have watched movies like Food Inc. and King Corn and read books like The Omnivores Dilemma. They like knowing that our cattle are raised on a ranch in Chipley, Florida owned by George Fisher, co-founder of Arrowhead Beef. The cattle are raised on pasture, eating nothing but grass and forage, and they are slaughtered humanely at local, USDA-inspected facilities as opposed to being sent to feedlots or any industrial beef production. Thats why our tagline is Raised Right and Sent Off Good. Q. Ive heard you talk about heirloom beef the way Svetlana Simon of Heritage Hen Farm talks about her heirloom chicken breeds. Whats so special about your cattle?A. George is a third-generation cattleman and has quietly cultivated a substantial herd of rare specialty cattle known as Parthenais. The Parthenais breed was established in France in 1893 and is world renowned for yielding exceptionally lean, tender, beef. Since the breed is so rare and exclusive, it is considered heirloom. Q. What about the taste?A. People love grass-fed beef because of the taste. Arrowhead Beef has developed a special aging and cutting process. We have a variety of cuts to choose from, including premium steaks, value steaks, ground beef, roasts, brisket, Osso Buco and short ribs. If youre interested, Tom will show you photos of the Arrowhead Beef ranch and his local, small-batch beef processing operation next time you visit the Delray GreenMarket. For the complete backstory on Florida Grass-fed Beef, go to www.FloridaGrass-fed.com. Reprinted with permission from the Delray GreenMarket.

Calling All Chefs!Enter Delray Beach GreenMarkets There was a time when the words vegetarian and chili were never used together (cue theme song from Bonanza).

The Delray Beach Pineapple www.DelrayPineapple.com food/dining DELRAY BEACH, FL Remember the good ole days of baseball with legends Don Larsen, Carl Hubbell and Bobby Shantz? Well now you dont have to travel too far to take a stroll down baseball memory lane. Fran Marincola, longtime Delray Beach resident and co-owner of the ocean front restaurant landmark Caff Luna Rosa, recently donated his rare baseball photograph collection to the Delray Beach Public Library. Photos include a rare signed black and white photo of Don Larsen from that perfect day October 8, 1956, Yankee Stadium where he pitched the rst perfect game in a World Series and only the sixth in history. Memorabilia like this is all over the internet for sale and who knows if it is real or not, said Marincola. I did not want my authentic collection in the hands of just anyone who would not appreciate the sentiment of the memories of these hallof-famers. So why not display them for the community to enjoy and reect. So Marincola donated them to the Delray Beach Public Library. We found the perfect location to mount the collection so everyone in the community can enjoy the memories, learn about the past and remember some of the old-timers of baseball, said Alan Kornblau, Library Director. There are a lot of places Fran could have donated them to a sports bar, or even sold them; so to donate them to the library is special. As part of our mission, the library strives to provide the public with dynamic collections and this certainly falls into that category, honoring Americas pastime. Marincola purchased the collection a few years ago by a longtime baseball memorabilia collector, James Murray, who passed away and was a longtime customer of Luna Rosa. I knew when I purchased them they were a priceless memento of a time long past and if you grew up in the east coast in the 1940s and 50s, as I did, you have vivid memories of watching these legends play, said Marincola. The collection is free to enjoy and can be found hanging at the library located at 100 West Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach. The Library is open Mon-Wed: 9am 8pm For more information call (561) 266-0194.Fran Marincola and Alan KornblauDelray Beach restaurateur donates rare baseball memorabilia to Library Farm Fresh Eggs & Balsamic Vinegars Antibiotic & Hormone Free Fresh Conch, Conch Fritters, Conch Salad 16th Annual Chili Cook-OffAwards 12:30pmCatagories: Enter Today!When I was rst given the assignment to shoot an episode of The Nutrition Goddess at Collados Market, my rst reaction waswhere is Collados Market? And when I tell people about the episode, they all ask the same question. Its another one of Delray Beachs hidden treasures that many people would like to keep that way. It seems the regulars at Collados are in favor of keeping their favorite place to eat healthy off the mainstream radar. But based on my experience, once people discover what Collados has to offer, the regulars will have to make room for more. So where is it? If you are heading south on Federal, its just past the Walgreens on the corner of Lindell and Federal. In fact, its a stones throw from Boca Raton, but safely in the city limits of Americas most fun city. (3416 South Federal) The minute you walk in to Collados you know you have found deli nirvana. Nearly 30 feet of packed deli cases let you know that variety is in order. Better yet, they are loaded with freshly made salads, fresh fruit, olives, meats, and cheeses. But what really separates Collados from the majority of local delis are the fun, friendly, and outgoing owners, Felix and Milady. They make you feel right at home and ensure that whatever it is you are ordering is just the way you want it. Every person I spoke to knew Felix and raved about his warm smile and infectious laugh. I found Felix to be handsome, charming, and a bit of a irt. I thought it was rather bold to ask me on a picnic in the middle of a shoot and with his lovely bride nearby, but how could I resist? (You can see the results of our picnic on The Food Beat) Naturally, there are plenty of things to choose from that would not be staples of a health conscious diet, but all so tempting. Meteor sized meatballs, salami, lasagna and other not so low fat items are in abundance. But for those seeking the best of both worlds, Collados is a veritable universe of heavenly options. As I mentioned earlier, fresh is a central theme. Fruit salads, broccoli rabe, lean turkey, beef, ham, sh and poultry are prepared in a way that lets you eat without guilt. While I was visiting, I spoke to many customers who raved about the healthy eating options that did not require them to sacrice great taste. Collados sandwich menu is remarkable and every creation is made to order, including the sandwich I sampled, the health nut. The freshly grilled chicken breast, avocado, lettuce, tomato and a special dressing placed on a bakery fresh roll was sensational. Whether you are ordering a single serving from the deli or any of the menu items, or buying by the pound to feed the ofce or the family, the choices and the avors are endless. In fact, Collados Market can cater any size event and even provide a staff to handle all the serving and clean-up. And just when you thought it couldnt get any better, it does. Collados offers one of the nest selections of wines that are carefully selected by Felix and Miladys daughter, a wine sommelier from New York. Healthy and delicious breakfast, lunch, dinner, take-out, catering, select wines and great people are worth searching for, wouldnt you agree?
