DELRAY BEACH WELCOMES BACK FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS Eclectic mix of fine art, top local & national artists HYATT PLACE ON PACEFOR FALL OPENING CRA Incentive Gives Hotel Developer a Welcome Assist by Paula Detwiller The Pineapple Staf f Writer The void that has been at the heart of Delray Beachs Pineapple Grove ArtsDistrict for the past few years is finally being filled. Constr uction crews are busy erecting a 4-stor y Hyatt Place hotel at the corner of NE 2nd Avenue and NE 1st Street. Not only will the project bridge the physical gap between buildings, but it will also bringtourists, visitors and at least 45 new jobs to the downtown. The new hotel will of fer 134 hotel rooms at an average rate of $150/night, and about 2,000 square feet of conference r ooms and small meeting space. A large patio area, including an outdoor swimming pool and hot tub, will be built on the rooftop of the hotels 2-story parking garage, creating an outdoor entertainment space with a 180-degree vista facing the west. Many local mer chants expect the hotel to have a positive impact on the ar ea. This does two things for downtown, said Gene Fisher president of the Pineapple Grove Arts District board. It creates continuity, with hotels at various price points from the beach to the middle of downtown. And it will feed foot traf fic onto Pineapple Gr ove Way and Atlantic Avenue. Its a tremendous thing.

Kristina Saltzman, owner of Palm Beach Native Sun by Rigel Her man The Pineapple Staf f W riter She has always loved fashion, clothing and the look of a chic, no-nonsense woman. In fact, shes been using her fashion sensibilities to dress women here for 13 years. Kristina Saltzman, owner of fashion boutique Palm Beach Native Sun, says she chose to bring her passions to life in Delray Beach for good reason. Delray feels like a New England town to me -friendly, stylish and with a lot of character, Saltzman says. Palm Beach Native Sun, located in the heart of the Atlantic Avenue shopping zone, is as well known for its contemporary womans clothing as it is for Saltzman herself. A Vermont native, sheappears taller than she is, with long blonde hair and a r eputation for dressing impeccably. If she is in the stor e, its obvious to a shopper that shes the owner. Her presence and confidence in her clothing make it unmistakable that she chose ever y piece of clothing in her stor e with car eful con sideration for her clientele, genuinely acknowledging the taste level of the Delray Beach woman. While Saltzman has been a retail business owner for over 20 years, she now works as a clothing r epresentative for several lines as well, including Bailey 44, a brand she carries at Native Sun. Being a rep means she is the sales liaison between the clothing company and the retailer. By adding this job to her repertoire, she is able to expand her personal clout in the fashion industry and also gain a sense of what women want and what is selling on a national scale. For Native Sun, this translates well, considering how many of her clients are Downtown fashion r etailer loves dr essing Delray Beach continued on p. 16

6 JANU ARY2012 THEDELRAYBEACHPINEAPPLE WWW.DELR AYPINEAPPLE.C OM Keeping the past alive with fewer dollars by Paula Detwiller Special to The Pineapple For the past 10 years, the Spady Cultural Heritage Museum has displayed and shared thehistor y of Delray Beachs African American community Housed in a restored 1926 home at 170 NW 5th Avenue, the museum has attracted visitors of all ages, races, and nationalities, contributing to a gr eater awareness and understanding of local African American histor y. This year the museum was challenged by a present-day economic reality: the recession. Faced with fewer grant opportunities, increasing costs, and a decline in donations,the nonpr ofit organization EPOCH (Expanding and Preserving Our Cultural Heritage), which operates the museum, is scaling back and retooling for the future. EPOCH is one of five nonprofit organizations receiving annual operating funds fromthe Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA ith fewer revenues to spread around this fiscal year, the CRA approved a smaller-than-requested budget allotment for EPOCH and asked their Board of Directors to work on becoming mor e self-sustaining. Like a lot of other nonprofits in todays economy, Spady Museum is having to streamline their operations, said CRA Marketing and Grants Manager Elizabeth Burrows. Theyrehaving to get mor e creative with their partnerships, their fundraising, and their programming, but its going to make them more focusedand better equipped to fulfill their mission. For tunately, creativity comes naturally to Charlene Jones, who has ser ved as the muse ums Educational Programs Director since 2002. She and Brandy Br ownlee, who serves as Museum Educator, are EPOCHs two remaining employees now that the organizations budget has shrunk by more than half. e just have to go back to our roots, Jones said. Reassess and begin again. Part of the reassessment has been the suspension of childrens educational programs for the time being, and the scaling down of the annual Spady Day Festival. It alsoincludes focusing sharply on expanding the museums base of supporters. Our Board is currently evaluating how they will structure the development effort,Jones said. This ef fort could include soliciting grants, private donations, endowments, or bequests. In the meantime, Jones and Brownlee are busy coordinating the museums traditional activities while implementing some new ideas as well. In October, 130 people attended Spadys first Soulful Tastings fundraiser at Patio Delray restaurant. The food and wine event pair ed traditional Southern dishes with South African wines. It was a fun event that was also educational, Brownlee said. Not many people realize that so many great wines are made in South Africa, and it was exciting to experiencethem with traditional soul food. Another new series called Playwrights and Play Readings targets more thespian-minded individuals. Each event features an unpublished, unpr oduced play by or about the African Diaspora. Participants read through the play in character while the playwright watches via Skype. The readings are insightful, pr oviding valuable information the playwrights use to better prepare their scripts for the stage. Many other programs have remained in place, although some have been scaled back. The footprint of this years Annual Spady DayFestival, on November 5th, was scaled down to fill only one block of NW 5th Avenue. However, festivities still included live music and dance performances, food vendors, and children activities. The museums popular Ride and Remember Trolley Tour through Delrays five historic districts will continue to be held on the second Saturday of each month from September to May The public will again be invited to Spady s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. breakfast in January, a fundraiser for the museum that brings all residents of the citytogether to celebrate Dr King s life. Beginning in Febr uary, the museum will again sponsor the lecture series Connecting Community and Cultur e as part of Black History Month. And Spady will again co-host the weeklong Palm Beach County Histor y Institute in June for Palm Beach County School District teachers, who learn how to incorporate local African American historyinto their lesson plans. And, of course, the museum will continue to host up to four changing exhibits a year. Ideas include creating an exhibit from the Spady Museum archives, and a community exhibition featuring cultural ar tifacts from the personal collections of local African Americans. Spady Museum remains a vibrant cultural attraction in Delray Beach, Jones said. er e not going anywher e.

JANU ARY2012 9 THEDELRAYBEACHPINEAPPLE WWW.DELRAYPINEAPPLE.COM music The 3 Amigos are the best band you may have never hear d of! This ultra talented trio is fr onted by br others Andr es and Gabe Martinez, who have been playing music since childhood. Their dr ummer Julien, is the newest member of the band but fits in the pocket like he gr ew up with the br others Mar tinez. We caught up with Andr es and got to know a little about them. Briefly what is your backgr ound and how did you come to start this project? My brother Gabe and I have been playing music all our lives and we wer e fortunate to get a very early start. We come from a musical family and have been playing in thesame musical pr ojects since the beginning. When our last drummer had to leave the band, we found Julian on Craigslist. After receiving about 60 different responses to our ad in a span of two days, we ir onically ended up going with Julian who was thefirst person to call out of all of them. He called within five minutes of posting thead. T alk about desperate! I know you play covers, but what separates you fr om other cover bands? I would have to say that our song selection and its diversity is what sets us apar t fr om other cover bands. We play songs from a huge span of artists including 311, Sublime, Tears For Fears, Stevie Wonder, MichaelJackson, Notorious BIG, Bob Marley and much more spanning from old to new. Ever yone in the band really embraces all different genres of music, so when we put together a song list, it's pr etty much guaran teed that ther e will be something for ever y one. Being that we all come from a background of playing original music, we try tonot sell our souls completely W e do this by only playing covers that we actually like and that we know other people like as well. What do you think of Delray's music scene as a whole? Nothing like it! Ther e ar e so many dif fer ent things going on. Its awesome that I could be checking out some new indie band at DADAwhile my par ents ar e getting nostalgic and dancing the night away 3 blocks down at Johnny Browns. I think it's awesome to have a downtown ar ea like Delray that suppor ts not only music, but culture and the arts in general. Why the name 3 Amigos? Well, there are three of us and we're all friends and it just so happens that were allHispanic, so the name does have some authenticity. Not to mention that we have been known to save small towns and villagesfr om the tyranny of suppressing outlaws. After our shows you might be able to catch us loading our gear onto our horses and riding of f into the night spor ting oversized sombr er os. Since Delrays burgeoning musical culture definitely has something for everyone, it can be hard to figure out where to go to fit your mood for the night. Fortunately, you have me to help weed thr ough the noise (literally, and figuratively). Mineo Hur ricanes Bar & Lounge / Dec 25th, 9pm Mineo is just as entertaining as he is thoughtprovoking. Whether hes performing with a traditional trio, big band or simply a versatiletubist, Mineo s groovy guitar licks and unique vocal phrasing will make your Mojito that much sweeter. Midlife Crysis OConnors Pub / December 31st, 10pm Every band at this character driven bar goes well with one of the best-poured Guinness in town, and this seasoned classic rock group is no exception. A great way to start yournew year after all the family has gone to bed! Pangea Kidz Arts Garage / January 7th, 9pm This socially conscious rap gr oup fresh off of their per formances at BET 106 & Park and the Apollo in NYC take the stage at Arts Garage for their premier Delray performance.

Rachel Andes DADA / January 7th, 10pm At a spot known for adding an eclectic touch to Delrays musical landscape, DADA takes it back with this soulful sexy jazz/hip-hop singer (yes you read that rightZinfandel with your best friends or one you love, but be ready for some surprises. The Thr ee Amigos Bull Bar / January 14th, 10pm The Thr ee Amigos are always a sure bet and if Im watching these 3 talented dudes remake my favorite songs in their image, Im not going anywhere, so Im pacing myself with some Y uenglings at this classic Delray Bar. Big Poppa E and the E Band Tryst / Sundays, 5:30pm This is a great way to cap off the weekend. T op shelf blues and a top shelf scotch to reminisce Friday and Saturday successes. The time is perfect if you need to get home to prepare for work and the scene is great for the whole family And if Scotch isnt your thing, there is a craft beer for every palate. The Hot Rod Show Johnny Browns / Tuesdays, 7:30 pm For the record, I am NOT a Rod Stewart fan, but this guy can put on a show! It doesn t mat ter what you want to drink as long as you are with a gr oup of people who like to have fun! Amber Leigh Boston s / Saturdays, 2pm This beautiful fiddle player/singer and her band are the perfect way to enjoy this Delray staple!

For mor e info, visit www2.pgatoursuperstore.com The Arbors Office Park sells CBRE announced the sale of The Arbors Office Park at 1615, 1625 & 1690 South Congress Avenue in Delray Beach to RexxHall Realty LLC. The three-building of fice park totals 244,247 r entable square feet and is 45% occupied. RexxHall has significant opportunity for upside potential through the lease-up ofthe vacant space, which they ar e confident that they will be able to accomplish. They have a big capital budget and plan to reno-vate the buildings and implement an aggr essive leasing program, said CBRE V ice Chair man Christian Lee, who represented the seller. Built in 1981, the property is a Class A office park with a high 4.63 per 1,000squar e foot parking ratio. Key tenants include Alfred Angelo, Sperry & Hutchinson, T win-Star Inter national, and Escalate. Lee was joined by team members, Charles Foschini and Christopher Apone with CBREs Institutional Group in Miami and Scott ODonnell and Dominic Montazemi of the Private Capital Group in Palm Beach County No buyer representative was involved in the transaction. West Palm Beachup to 50% of the cost of eligible infrastructure improvements, up to$431,000. The incentive will be paid in annu al installments over a 10-year period, ulti mately offsetting the cost of storm drains, water mains, sidewalks, and other site improvements. It will be a gr eat help, and I think it will be instr umental in getting more development going on in Delray, without question, said Scott Webb, president of Kolter Commercial. Webb, who calls Delray Beach a destination city , said he has not seen this type of incentive in other cities where the company has built hotels. A lot of municipalities pay lip service to developers. They of fer tax credits or reductions in fees, but no assistance for the har d costs of construction. This grant program shows that the Delray Beach CRA really understands the needs of development. They wer e phenomenal to work with, Webb said. CRA Marketing and Grants Manager Elizabeth Burrows said the CRAs roll-out of the DIA program and five other new econom-ic development incentives last year was strate gically timed. By having these programs already in place, Delray Beach is positioned to attract development during the early stages of the economic r ecovery, Burrows said. Were starting to see some of the benefits now The CRA is working to bring two additional hotels to the downtown area: an afford-ably priced 4-stor y hotel on West Atlantic A venue, near Interstate 95; and a small boutique-hotel that is part of the proposed redevelopment of the Old Librar y Site, in the first block of SE 4th Avenue. The Hyatt Place hotel pr omises to bring more exposure to the CRA-supported Arts Garage located directly across SE 1st Street, and to other Pineapple Grove merchants.Patty Deitch, co-owner of The Beached Boat fur niture and home dcor store located two blocks north of the hotel site, is eagerly awaiting the hotels opening. Construction is scheduled to be complete in September 2012. Many of us ar e located just far enough off of Atlantic Avenue for people not to know whats down here, Deitch said. I thinkthe hotel will bring mor e people north on Pineapple Grove Wayboth tourists and residents. Giuliano Zaratin, owner of Dolce Amore Caf at 241 NE 2nd Avenue, is also excited about the new hotel. W eve been here for seven years. This is going to be a major thing for us. No more gap between NE 1st and 2nd Streets. People will find us more easily, andtheyll see how nice Pineapple Gr ove is, Zaratin said. Karen Pagano, owner of Glimpse Eyewear, whose front door is directly opposite the entrance to the Hyatt Place hotel, couldn t agree more. ourists are going to need sunglasses! she said with a smile. To me, this represents the completion of the neighborhood. Theresa good vibe her e and a lot more people are going to discover it.

I love the interesting variety of people in Delray, she says. Everyone is from all overthe place. I can buy specific pieces that ar e a bit unusual and they are accepted and appreciated here, I think because of the diversity As if her schedule wasn t full alr eady, Saltzman is also National Sales Dir ector for designer Rolando Santana. Saltzman first discovered this Mexican-American designer when she pur chased one of his dr esses for her self. She was so impressed by his craftsmanship that she continued to harass him for a year, until he finally gave me the job, she says. Santanas dresses have been worn by celebrities and fashionistas alike, includingReal Housewives of New Y ork star Alex McCord. Through her position, Saltzman is helping Santana brand both his couture collec-tion and his less expensive contemporar y line. His vision and workmanship are very fr esh. He s classic and innovative and r eally appeals to the modern woman, says Saltzman. Several of Rolando Santanas dresses are available at Native Sun, of course. Though she s always wearing at least 3-inch heels and an ensemble plucked straight fr om a collection, Saltzman is also a self-proclaimed hippie at hear t and uses her stor e as a platform for many charitable endeavors. With a par tner she star ted a womans cooperative in Guatemala to help promote fair trade and initiate female owned businesses. La roses de Concepcion is a group of women from Concepcion, Guatemala that hand-make stun-ning pieces of beaded jewelr y and handbags, several of which Saltzman designs with them in their village. She then sells the pieces in NativeSun and to other r etailers and r eturns the profits dir ectly to the Guatemalan cooperative. An avid dog-lover, Saltzman also uses Native Sun to help homeless animals find families. Thispast November she hosted an event with a local rescue organization called A Second ChancePuppy and Kitten Rescue, filling her stor e win dow with puppies available for adoption. Saltzman and her husband are the parents of two r escue dogs, Forrest and Soleil. When shes not showcasing Native Sun s latest cashmer e installation, she can be spotted showing off snapshots of her two dog-children to customers andfriends. Native Sun is, of course, extr emely canine friendly like much of Delray, another reason why Saltzman s stor e is so successful. Palm Beach Native Sun is undoubtedly Saltzmans love child. It is clear from the reactions of her clients that she spends hours scru-tinizing clothing to find pieces that she thinks ar e truly interesting and pleasing to them. And while she is a hard-working heavy-hitter in the fashion industr y with her hands in so many different projects, she lives here fulltime, pr oving that Delray Beach is her home, not just where her store resides.
