By Paula Detwiller Special to The Pineapple Orange trafc barrels have sprung up along Federal Highway in Delray Beach, signaling the start of a two-year construction project designed to make the corridor more attractive and safer for cars, bikes, and pedestrians. Its a little-known fact that Delray Beach is the only place between West Palm Beach and Miami where Federal Highwayalso known as US-1has three lanes of trafc in both directions. Three lanes tend to make motorists drive faster, which is undesirable for a busy thoroughfare bisecting a relaxed, family-friendly beach town. The Federal Highway Beautication Project will permanently narrow the road to two lanes in each direction between SE 10th Street and George Bush Boulevard (NE 8th Street). Construction crews are currently upgrading water mains along the corridor, working their way from south to north. As the project continues, bicycle lanes will be added along the corridor, along with some new onstreet parking spaces and landscape nodes. The two blocks directly north and south of the Atlantic Avenue intersections will see wider sidewalks with more landscaping and new decorative lighting. Downtown businesses and adjacent residents have been waiting for this beautication, especially those businesses closest to Atlantic Avenue, where the sidewalks are so narrow its difcult to walk with a stroller, said Marjorie Ferrer, Executive Director of the Delray Beach Downtown Development Authority (DDA). The end result will be a more friendly pedestrian walkway, similar to Atlantic Avenue. Delray Beach was contemplating the elimination of a travel lane in each direction as early as 1998, said Diane Colonna, Executive Director of the Delray Beach Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA). After state and county transportation planners determined two lanes were sufcient to accommodate future trafc, the road-narrowing project was incorporated into the Downtown Master Plan, adopted by the City Commission in 2002. But as Delrays population grew in the years that followed, residents became concerned that eliminating a travel lane would create trafc gridlock. For that reason, Colonna said, the city began a temporary trial in 2008, installing thin, upright barriers and crescent-shaped rubber curbing along Federal Highway to block off one travel lane in each direction. If the trial were to negatively impact downtown trafc circulation, the sticks and curbs could be removed. But after collecting and analyzing data during a year-long trial period, trafc engineers didnt nd any gridlock. Instead, they found that the corridor became safer, as planners had predicted. Trafc speeds declined by about six miles per hour and accidents decreased by an average of 50 percent along Federal Highway as a whole, Colonna said. Even better, the accident rate was reduced by 75 percent at the intersections of northand southbound Federal Highway and Atlantic Avenue. Armed with the proof they needed, Delray Beach City Commission voted to proceed with the permanent improvements in 2009. The temporary curbing has remained in place while funding was secured from various federal, state, and local sources. The $14 million project will be paid for in part by a $3.6 million contribution from the CRA. While temporary road closures and changing trafc patterns may be inconvenient for now, in the long run, the project is expected to help create jobs, promote economic activity along Federal Highway, and provide alternative transit opportunities. During the two-year construction periodcompletion is anticipated by summer 2015the CRA, DDA and Chamber of Commerce are working to keep residents and visitors informed: Project status updates for motorists will be posted on the DDA website: (http:// A list of Frequently Asked Questions is posted on the CRA website (http://bit. ly/16GreM7) to explain the scope, timing, funding, and impact of the project. The DDA will attend bi-monthly construction meetings and provide regular updates to merchants and businesses along Federal Highway. Once the permanent improvements are installed, US-1 through Delray Beach will look much more attractive, and be consistent with the appearance of the rest of downtown, Colonna said. We appreciate everyones patience as the project progresses! Paula Detwiller writes professionally for the CRA and other clients. Her website/blog can be found at Makeover underway on Federal Hwy.

AAA is the highest rating assigned by S&Ps and indicates that our City has an extremely strong capacity to meet nancial commitments. In spite of the economic challenges that face many municipalities, Delray Beach maintains strong nancial stability and sound scal management. S&Ps rating was based on several factors and noted the Citys strong budgetary exibility due to reserves 20% above expenditures for the past few years with no plans to signicantly spend them down. According to S&Ps Global Credit Portal Ratings Direct Summary: Delray Beach, Florida; General Obligation report dated October 1, 2013: The Citys budgetary performance, in our view, has been strong overall with surpluses generated in three of the past ve scal years. S&Ps also stated, The stable outlook reects our view of the Citys continued consistent nancial performance and underlying economy supported by good management. Higher bond ratings benet the City through lower interest costs for future borrowings. Because Delray Beachs upgraded bond rating indicates a nancially sound municipality, bond buyers feel that the risk of loss is minimized and are willing to accept a lower interest rate return. The City is proud to be recognized for its commitment to remain nancially strong during these difcult economic times, states City Manager Louie Chapman.

The award was presented to Dorling at FSBPAs Annual Conference on September 26, 2013. Dorling heads the Citys department that has the primary responsibility of guiding and directing future growth while ensuring the preservation of the communitys unique attributes. He has always viewed the beach program as a critical asset for the Citys sustainable and economic success with emphasis on storm protection, environmental habitat and tourism. To maintain this natural resource, the 1.9-mile coastline has undergone several beach nourishment projects since 1973 with the latest one completed this year. Delrays municipal beach has been recognized as a model example of beach nourishment and was recently selected as one of Americas Best Restored Beaches for 2013 by the American Shore and Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA). The beach has performed better with every project and, according to ASBPA, is the quintessential example of a beach nourishment success story. The wide pristine sandy area and vegetated dunes are the result of years of dedicated work under the guidance and direction of Dorling.

12 November 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By David DiPino The Pineapple Contributing Writer Hes known most lately for his meme, emulating Drake hands on the social media app Instagram. But before the latest chapter of the Tim Rigas life there were many that may have not been written had it not been for the place, and people of Delray Beach. Rigas came here three years ago to nd recovery, but what he found was life, love and a renewed pursuit of happiness, creating culinary masterpieces in the kitchens that house and feeds Delray Beachs foodies nightly. Hell be the rst to tell you that he failed and was on the oor many times before he started two years of sobriety on October 16, 2011. This is just one of the many stories of recovery in Delray Beach. The sober movement in Delray Beach is not only helping thousands, but also adding fuel to the gas tank of Delray Beachs economy. For instance, fast-forward to the week before October 16, 2013 when Rigas new roommate Girish Navare, a.k.a. G started planning an outing of Tims friends on Facebook. He wanted to keep it in Delray Beach, so G decided on the popular Burger Fi craft hamburger restaurant. On a balmy Wednesday October night, a dozen of Rigas friends took over the burger joint to celebrate his recovery. Tim Rigas showed up fashionably late in a bright colored very Miami Vice pastel colored shirt, un-buttoned a few inches to show off a little chest hair that hes recently grown playing in an A league Adult Hockey League. You can say itwe are a couple of minutes late because we parked down there on Gleason Street and walked over under this beautiful moon. The way I feel right now is like a professional hockey player who just scored the game-winning goal in a shootout the night before, and now Im out with my lovely girl showing off my new threads. Its very South Florida...I feel good down here in Delray Beach, Rigas said. On that evening, Tim and his charming girlfriend Nicole Shaw walked down East Atlantic Avenue, bouncing with condence. When they got to South Ocean Boulevard, they gracefully took the turn South towards Burger Fi and Tim walked up on the dozen or so friends, brothers, sisters, sober peeps and normies, as normal people are called by those in recovery. Tim handled the social situation with a poise and self-assured dignity as he greeted everyone in the crowd. If a picture had been taken, it would have shown a dozen friends with a smile bigger than Delray Municipal Beach after the recent sand renourishment project. Ill be the rst to tell you I failed at thisI remember being sober in Delray Beach for the rst time followed by my fair share of struggles. I had ed to an enabling friend who had an apartment in an East Boynton Beach apartment development. After a week of non-stop drinking, I called for help. When my friends came to pick me up I was in the parking lot during the day in just my underwear, clutching a Rum and Coke. Rigas ended up at The Hartman House of Delray Beach, a place for men in transition. He was in no rush to ee the helping hand and opportunities set forth in front of him, and thus found a job at The Ofce in Downtown Delray Beach. He moved up the ranks, rst handling hot appetizers, then pastries, and then manning the busiest saut stoves on Atlantic Avenue. From there he was promoted to lead line cook or Chef de Partie, where he managed the nighttime line under the direction of the Sous Chef and Chef de Cuisine. He since moved on to the Mizner Country Club in Delray Beach, where he is working under talented Chef Sean Key where once again Rigas is manning the saut stoves. Rigas just landed a new job as the lead saut line chef at Mizner. His move to West Atlantic Avenue, to a better position in the culinary world wouldnt have worked two years ago, and probably not a year ago. Before Rigas sat down with his friends at Burger Fi to celebrate two years of sobriety with friends he posted a message on Facebook that looked back on the journey. Im celebrating two years of sobriety todayhard work pays off! I didnt get here alone, thank you to everyone who has touched my life and for the support and understanding of my amazing girlfriend and family. Most importantly, if you are out there struggling, or in need of change, you are never alone, and if I can do it you can. Much love! Rigas wrote on Facebook. Following the dinner with friends, Rigas was back on social media to thank those who helped again. Tonight was a great night with great friends. No better way to celebrate Sometimes the ultimate happiness is not the change you see in yourself but the change you see in others. Tim shared with me that much of this quote was in reference to another close friend of his, Alexander Trim, a young man who found Delray Beach, by way of England, Trims outlook and hopes for his own recovery and journey glow brighter by the day. Another one of Tims close friends is Tims roommate, Girish G Navare. The two met in Delray Beach via Gs journey down here from New York City, and nally The Hartman House. Tim Rigas is originally from Hanover, New Hampshire, by way of Providence, Rhode Island. Through the humor they share, and long late night recovery talks, the two connected in Delray Beach and are now close roommates. G recently shared a post on Facebook that captures some of the humor they toss back and forth. Has anybody ever accidentally left their car running and gone into a restaurant for an hour, never knowing that they did that? Hypothetically, lets say his name is Timothy James Rigas, G said. All kidding aside, G is extremely happy with not only his own recovery, but also to see Tim succeeding in life, recovery and love. At the celebration for Tims two-years, G methodically made his way around the table talking to everyone. His one-on-one talks with everyone in the room were more philosophical than lecture based. The question of how many times a day or a week someone goes to a recovery meeting, I really think it varies from person to person. Some people go to meetings twice a day. Some people go two times a week; some only go two times a month. Each person is different; Ive met people that could not stay sober despite countless attendance at meetings while others have ourished in life and recovery by attending fewer. It is not the quantity of meetings attended but rather the quality of spiritual principles in which one lives their life as a sober person and member of this awesome community Navare said. Rigas plans to pick up his two-year medallion at a recovery meeting held on Delrays Municipal Beach. Im going to speak at that meeting on the beach. Its tting that my two-year is on the beach Because since Ive lived, worked and went to meetings in this city, Ive spent a lot of time at the beach. Youre going to have that with a proximity that close to the beautiful local beach and the blue Atlantic Ocean, Rigas said. Tim Rigas has been sober for over 24 months, 732 days and 18,000 hours. The future is his story; helping other in anyway he can. Most days I get up and I feel as good as Big Papi after he just hit a grand slam to put the Boston Red Sox ahead in the MLB Playoffs. But even if I feel less than that, I still get up and face the day with an attitude I never once could emulate. Today I happen to feel better than the Buffalo Sabres after a hard fought ice hockey win. Part tongue and cheek Rigas explains, The acronym YOLO (you only live once) sums up my current outlook on life. Its not about the right and wrongs of how one should or shouldnt go about their patheveryones journey is different, I just show up and enjoy the ride one day at a time! Rigas said. Celebrating recovery with friends Tim Rigas (right) found love with Nicole Shaw (left), happiness, and a blossoming culinary career after choosing recovery in Delray Beach. Rigas worked as a chef in Providence, Rhode Island, but his life took a turn for the worst and his rst attempt at rehab sent him to Jacksonville. His second attempt at recovery was in Delray Beach where he has called home, sober, since October 2011.


The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 13 Having fun just hanging around Ok, that statement could be taken the wrong way if you have never heard of aerial silk yoga. So what is aerial silk yoga you say? Aerial silks refers to a new type of yoga that is practiced with the assistance of a silk swing as a tool to help students achieve the traditional Yoga positions. Much of this exciting practice involves actual aerial suspension, which creates a very different experience than what people are used to with more traditional practices. Yoga in general offers a number of health and wellness benets. Aerial silk yoga takes it to the next level with a whole host of additional benets. The rst and most basic benet of aerial silk yoga is that it is so new and so different. Never underestimate the power of new. A novel experience, in and of itself, stimulates positive chemical reactions in the brain. This type of stimulation raises levels of certain brain chemicals such as Dopamine and promotes creation of a number of new brain connections. The benets include improvements in mood and some protection from dementia. Any new experience will create a similar reaction in the brain, but the degree of stimulation created by aerial silks is on the very high end of the scale. When you walk into a silk yoga studio the rst thing you will notice are the vibrant colors of the swings. The space is as inviting as it is captivating, setting the stage for a graceful practice. Beauty has a powerful effect on the brain and aerial silks at the most basic level is just that, beautiful. It is easy to get caught up in what feels more like a romantic dance than a form of exercise, but that is exactly what you want to do. It is easier to escape into this peaceful world while cradled in the comfort of your silk sling. The sling provides comfort when you are trying to restore and an embrace of support when you are extending into a challenging pose. The new physical orientations, such as the many inverted positions, force the brain to quickly adapt in a number of different ways beyond just visually. It is difcult to match the magnitude of this new experience. Beyond the neurochemical benets derived from the new experience, aerial silks provides a number of psychological benets. Hanging upside-down seems easy enough until you actually try to do it past the age of 22. It is natural for most people to experience some apprehension before their rst silk inversion. Facing this natural fear and then actually overcoming it is a major psychological victory with far-reaching benets. Most people live a life working around their fears and perceived limitations. Going past your rst assisted inversion and becoming adept at initiating and controlling your own inversions blows the top off of living in fear. This actually builds condence that spills over into other aspects of the persons life, including career and relationships. People are amazed at how powerful this condence builder can be. Feeling stronger mentally only facilitates getting stronger physically. In addition to the neurochemical benets of aerial silk yoga, the body derives a number of physical benets as well. The partial neutralization of gravity in certain positions creates an effect of decompression on the spine and other joints. Improving exibility in a decompressed position offers additional benets over just basic exibility work alone. This can help with common problems such as back and joint pain. The relief of pain without the use of medications is the optimal solution for an injury and improves quality of life. Inverted positions also help with lymphatic drainage and improve circulation. A body that heals efciently only makes you feel good. Feeling good and being healthy is a common goal for all of us. There are not many opportunities where we get to try something so radically new that we actually remember our rst time doing it. Aerial silk yoga is exactly one of these rare opportunities. Face your fears and go hang yourself. Dr. Rodriguez is the founder of the Delray Center for Healing and Bamboo Garden Yoga, which is the home of Defy Gravity Aerial Yoga. Defy Gravity Aerial Yoga is a full-scale aerial silks yoga studio wit highly experienced instructors that caters to all skill and experience levels of students. Delray Center For Healing 403 SE 1st Street, Delray Beach, FL 33483 888-699-5679 by Dr. Raul Rodriguez When we consider all the decisions that weve made in our lifetimes, I would bet that most (if not all) of them can be traced directly back to either love or fear. For example, a decision to accept a certain job, get in or out of a relationship buy a car, or make a phone call youve been dreading; they all come down to two powerful emotions, love or fear. As an experiment, I wondered what it would sound like if we gave each of them a voice of their own and had them sit down for a conversation with each other. Maybe sit down for cup of coffee and talk shop for a bit. Our story takes place in theory. In this case, Theory is a local coffee shop in Downtown Delray Beach. The emotions, Love and Fear, are our two main characters, and each have agreed to sit down together and discuss the nuances of their relationship with each other, and in their own opinion why they affect our lives so strongly. Fear: Hello, Love. Love: How are we Fear? Fear: Oh, you know, the usual, just bringing out the best in people. And you my dear? Love: Im doing great, a bit busier these days steering people away from your rhetoric, but hey, somebody has too. Fear: (laughs) Do you mean to tell me that the great Love has it in for me? Arent you, well...Love? Love: Dont misunderstand me, Fear, I can still love you, but not agree with what you do. Fear: Ahh, I see, you think you would be better off without me? Love: Im pretty sure the whole universe would be better off without you. Fear: Oh Love, I always thought we were on the same team, how would they appreciate you without me. I break em you x em. Love: Thats where youre wrong, its not about breaking and xing. Its about loving, learning, teaching and expanding people. Love is continuous, not earned. You created the misconception of earning me. Fear: So, explain this to me, Love, when a person sees a ame how do they know not to put their hand in it? Who directs them not to swim with sharks? Oh I know me Love: Great con men have always used a little bit of truth and a lot of lies. Your sole purpose is that form of protection. However, that has clearly passed your level of satisfaction. Fear: How would the people evolve if I wasnt here? This is a world of tough lessons, and many of those lessons are brought to you by yours truly. Love: I see. So youre saying that you are the gatekeeper to peopless salvation? Fear: Yes, actually that sounds about right. Love: Huh, I wonder how many people have fallen for your manipulative ways? Fear: Plenty...they chose to believe in me. They always had a choice between you and me Love: How about the ones that werent strong enough to ignore you? The ones who never had a chance at me because of you? Fear: Dont you understand, Love, without the darkness there is no light. Love: That may be true, but here are many differences between me and you and we will let the people decide. Love: LOVE IS HONEST (fear is deceitful), LOVE TRUSTS (fear suspects), LOVE FORGIVES (fear blames), LOVE IS KIND (fear is angry), LOVE IS AN ELIXIR (fear is a poison), LOVE DREAMS (fear schemes), LOVE BELIEVES (fear deceives). A waiter comes up to the table with a pad and a pen. An attractive woman in a red dress looks up. Waiter: Just you today Maam? Love:(smiles) (Pauses)..Yes just me Love is Real.

14 November 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple health & tness DELRAY BEACH, FL PurCycle, a new state-of-the-art indoor cycling studio has announced the grand opening of its Delray Beach facility, which opened its doors on June 1, 2013. Located in the heart of downtown Delray Beach at 101 SE 2nd Ave., PurCycle is the creation of president and founder Nicole Danna, a South Florida resident who relocated to Boca Raton in 2008 from Boulder, Colorado. When the area tness facilities failed to match her expectations in regards to training, equipment and staff, she decided to strike out on her own to create a Spinning facility that would bring a higher level of quality and service. I chose Delray Beach because aside from the downtown areas charm and smalltown feel it offered the perfect setting for PurCycle to establish itself. In addition to being a health-focused community, Delrays friendly, supportive business environment has made the entire process smooth and easy, said Nicole. The 2,000-square-foot facility offers a lounge area where a vegan juice bar will serve bottled cold-pressed juices and a limited menu of vegan and vegetarian fare starting in November. The main focus, however, is the 1,000-square-foot training room featuring a eet of 25 of Star Tracs newest Spinning Blade bikes. The bikes are used alongside a cutting-edge wireless exercise intelligence system known as Performance IQ, which monitors and records each clients heart rate and calories burned in real time during each class. If requested, individual stats are displayed on a TV at the front of the class, as well as recorded and emailed to each client at the end of each session. Guests and clients can track this information through his/her PurCycle account to measure personal performance, or to track and maintain tness goals. PurCycle combines the best technology, equipment, instructors and atmosphere so clients can make the most of their cycling class, Nicole Danna. The PurCycle experience provides you with everything you need to maximize your workout, build endurance, lose weight, and reach tness goals. Whether youre a road rider looking for a challenging indoor training session, a dedicated spin junkie, or a rst-time spinner, PurCycle is the perfect place to achieve your goals. Designed for all tness levels, the PurCycle class program offers several rides or class types that incorporate various cycling techniques, including endurance and interval training. Classes are sold online via the website (or in-studio) individually for $18, or in class packs ranging from three classes for $50, to a 20-class pas for $165 and an unlimited month pass for $175. Upon purchasing a class, guests receive a complimentary heart rate monitor (a retail value of $69.99 given to clients for free with the purchase of a 20 or unlimited class pass) that integrates with PurCycles exercise intelligence system during cycling. Demo heart rate monitors are given to rst-time riders who wish to see how the system works before purchasing. The rst class is free for everyone. PurCycle is open daily from 5:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., with classes throughout the day. The studio recently added a noon lunch ride at 12:15 p.m. each Wednesday, and celebrates a weekly happy hour ride at 4:30 p.m. on Friday allowing class attendees that ability to redeem a complimentary drink card at participating Delray Beach establishments Dada, Tryst and Dubliner.

The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 17 NOVEMBER 2013 By Jamie Salen The Pineapple Staff Writer Our guiding principle was that design is neither an intellectual nor a material affair, but simply an integral part of the stuff of life, necessary for everyone in a civilized society. Walter Gropius Currie Sowards Aguila Architects founding partner Bob Currie began his career in architecture within Walter Gropius walls at the world-renowned rm of The Architects Collaborative. In the four decades since, Bob and his partners, Jess Sowards and Jos Aguila have inuenced the urban and social fabric of the Delray Beach community. The rms work can be enjoyed and experienced from every vantage point within the city. Currie Sowards Aguila is a visionary rm, having designed and master-planned public and private projects throughout Delray Beach including the catalyst of the citys revitalization, the Old School Square cultural arts complex. A drive, walk, or bike through Delray Beach offers a snapshot of the rms architectural portfolio from Veterans Park to the South County Administration Complex and all places and space in between. Over the years the rm has contributed countless hours and design ideas to local nonprot organizations. The team has worked closely with the local chapter of Habitat for Humanity, designing signage and creating marketing graphics. The rms pro bono efforts have had a positive design and socioeconomic impact on this community, including the Wayside House, a residential treatment facility for women 18 years and older who are struggling with alcohol and drug addiction. Forty-ve years young, one constant has remained as the rms cornerstone: give to your community and your community will give back to you. The rm has donated its time and talents to lead two of the citys major planning charrettes, Pineapple Grove and the relocation of the library to West Atlantic. The partners and their staff worked alongside community volunteers to design the master plan for the redevelopment of downtown Delray Beachs NE 2nd Avenue. The Pineapple Grove Main Street project transformed a blighted urban area into the thriving arts, retail and dining district we know today as the Pineapple Grove Arts District. More recently, the rms projects have included interior improvement for the ever-popular Arts Garage, the SW 5th Avenue Plaza on West Atlantic Avenue, and the new beach pavilion at Atlantic Avenue and A1A. Over the years, Bob Currie has remained dedicated and diligent to the development and redevelopment of Delray Beach. He currently serves as V.P. of both the Delray Beach Library Board of Directors and the Beach Property Owners Association. He is a member of the Palm Beach County Zoning Board, serves as Design Chair of the Pineapple Grove Board of Directors, and serves on the Boards of both the Delray Beach Center for the Arts at Old School Square and Art House Delray. In the next few years, I hope to see the Beach Area Master Plan carried out, which will redevelop the beachs pedestrian corridor along A1A, Currie said. The construction of the new beach pavilion [designed pro bono by Currie Sowards Aguila] will serve as the Welcome Center for the city to move forward with the entire plan. My dream is that someday, when people think of downtown, they will view a seamless reach from the beach to I-95. There will be no East and West. Additionally, Im excited about the design future for the Federal Highways, so much unrealized potential! Currie concludes. Currie Sowards Aguila Architects GIVING BACK The beauty of this city is the diversity of its residents. I think we need to seize the opportunity to develop and build upon the past. The success of Atlantic Avenue serves as a gateway and road map to the citys future.

When dining out its an awkward exchange with a server, while buying a bottle at the local liquor store often ends with a timid guess. However, thanks to downtown Delray Beach newcomer N2, wine lovers who want to nd that perfect bottle have met their match. A bar thats a little more self-serve than sitdown, N2 Winebar opened October 23 in Pineapple Grove, a unique concept that is equal parts tasting room, retail shop and bar. Its also a place where patrons can browse a hand-picked selection of boutique and smallbatch wines, and sample them without having to wait for a seat -or a bartenders attention. How? The brainchild of lifelong Delray Beach resident Ronald L. Voss, III and coowner Kyle DeSantis of Coral Springs, N2 Winebar offers an experience unlike any in South Florida. We wanted to offer something that was fun and creative, but also lled a void [here in Delray Beach], said Voss during a recent interview. The void, according to Voss, is a new breed of wine bar where 64 of over 150 bottles are on tap thanks to a wall of Enomatic wine dispensers that allow patrons the freedom to self-select custom 1-, 3and 5-ounce pours. Although wine preservation systems have been in use for more than 30 years, Enomatic was among the rst automated system to become popular for use in bars, restaurants, and retail stores. At N2, each open bottle is stored and served at its recommended temperature, and will remain as though freshly-opened for up to 20 days. Servings are priced according to pour volume. Just activate your personal credit card, ll it with funds, and use it to sample a range of varietals. The selection will rotate from N2s list of more than 150 bottles, many of them rare nds, including a limited supply of 2009 Caymus cabernet sauvignon, said Voss. Aside from selection, N2 also delivers with an open concept and minimalist decor, from an elegant copper bar and lounge dotted with leather armchairs, N2 Winebar co-owner Ronald Voss holding one of the stores ve remaining bottles of limited edition 2009 Special Selection Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon.DELRAY BEACH, FL The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) represented Delray Beach among other downtown practitioners at the 59th Annual International Downtown Association World Congress event this past month.

The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 19


20 November 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple to a small, semi-private retail space where a communal table offers room for tastings and pairing events. With a casual-cool vibe, its a space that encourages patrons to meander and mingle. If youre more about being served than self-serve, and prefer the guidance of an oenophile, the same machines are located behind the bar where eight additional bottles rotate weekly, while a separate retail space gives customers the opportunity to sample, purchase and take home. It will also be a place to partake in a wine ight or two. And although the focus is on the wine, N2 will also be serving craft beers and cider by the bottle, as well as a small menu of gourmet meats, cheeses and small plates. Part of the concept means there will also be plenty of wine education, added Voss, which includes regular wine tastings held every other Wednesday at 7 p.m., as well as wine classes on Sunday at 2 p.m. A $15 fee will get you entry to tastings and classes unless otherwise advertised, and the fee will be waived if you purchase any bottle at $15 or more. N2 will also have a sommelier on hand for one night each month where collectors can break out their favorite bottles to share with like-minded wine professionals. N2 Winebar is located adjacent to The Hyatt Place in Pineapple Grove in Delray Beach at 104 NE Second Ave. For more information visit the website at www., or call 561-278-6802.N2 WINEBAR continued from page 17 N2 Winebar uses an Enomatic wine preservation and dispensing system.

ALLA WEISZ JOINS THE STAFF OF GENESIS COMMUNITY HEALTH BOYNTON BEACH, FL Dr. Alla Weisz, the most recent addition to the medical staff at Genesis Community Health, has a special afnity for the patients who rely upon community health clinics for their healthcare needs. In some cases, as their primary care physician, she has found she is the rst person to have a prolonged conversation with them about their health and how to care for their bodies. Once that connection is established, clinic patients seem to return religiously to report their progress and conrm that her work is making a difference, she said. Among this patient base, Dr. Weisz tries to change their perception of their options. They believe they have limited resources, and that its much easier to go to McDonalds and get a hamburger, but it doesnt cost that much more to make your own meal, which is healthier and more wholesome, she said. I teach them how to take care of themselves. In many cases, it has never been explained to them how what they eat affects their blood sugar. Once they understand, they begin to monitor what they eat. Dr. Weisz brings more than 30 years of medical experience to her new role. She earned her medical degree and completed a residency in ophthalmology from Odessa State Medical Institute in the Ukraine, before continuing her education at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, completing residencies in preliminary surgery and family practice. She served as staff physician and Medical Director at Hazel Dell Primary and Immediate Care Center in Carmel, Indiana, before moving to Palm Beach County in 2008 to work as a staff physician for MD Now Urgent Care Center in West Palm Beach. A West Palm Beach resident, Dr. Weisz is married with three sons, ages 25, 13 and 10. TIGER 21 SELECTS BARRY R.

By Harvey Brown Special to The Pineapple Question: Does it matter if I hire a contractor who does not have general liability or workers compensation coverage? Answer: It makes a big difference to hire a contractor with the proper insurance. I am aware of a number of instances where a contractor would advertise licensed and insured to the public when they in fact did not possess the proper contracting license or the proper Commercial Liability Insurance the public was being led to believe. I know of a couple of cases where the contractors drivers licenses was their justication for the licensed claim and their basic auto insurance justied their insured claim. The problem is, neither justication will help the home or business owner who hires these people when a problem arises due to faulty work or negligence. Contractors who responsibly run their businesses and carry full insurance may cost more but they are doing the public a favor by providing protection when a claim happens. Some of these claims can involve huge sums of money. We encourage everyone to hire properly licensed contracting professionals who have Commercial General Liability Insurance and (if necessary) Workers Compensation Insurance. We have seen many cases where a friend or neighbor hired a handyman or a lawn service which was not properly insured. Our friend paid dearly when an accident or mistake happened and there was no coverage in effect to help the injured party. The possibilities for loss caused by contractor negligence or malpractice are endless and they include damage to your home or building by the contractor or worse, injury to you or someone else by the contractor in the course of their work. I recall one case about 10 years ago where an uninsured handyman gave the low bid to construct some kitchen cabinets for a friend. A few years after installation, the cabinets fell off of the wall in one large crash injuring two neighbors at the house for a party. There was no coverage available from the handyman and it ended up costing the homeowner dearly for the injuries sustained by their (now former) friends. Cheap prices are a seductive lure to uninsured contractors but try to remember that you can pay a bit more up front for a true professional or you can pay a lot more later if a claim occurs due to negligence by an uninsured contractor. Go the extra mile when hiring a contractor by asking to see their Certicate of Insurance showing their insurance companies, coverages, and effective dates of coverage. Also ask to be added to their Commercial General Liability insurance as an Additional Insured. This ounce of protection on your part up front may save you paying a pound of cure later!

Insurance Q & A By Andrea Hoffer Special to The Pineapple The best way to build loyalty and increase productivity from your team is to recognize and thank them for their contributions. This isnt a new or brilliant concept. We all know this, but how often do you actually take the time to thank your employees? When I ask my clients how often they show their employees how much they appreciate them, I often hear that they always make sure to say thank you. The words, thank you, are important. How much more powerful would these words sound if they were accompanied by other thoughts of appreciation? Here are some ideas to get you started: Write a brief thank you note. Take a few minutes to write a thank you note to an employee. Be specic. Let your employee know what they did that you appreciate. Include with the note your employees favorite coffee drink or chocolate bar to make the thank you more special. If your business or organization has core values, tie your thank you to one of your core values. Print thank you cards that list your core values and use these cards for all of your thank you notes. This will not only show your employees how much you appreciate them, but will also reinforce the behavior you want to see again in the future. Celebrate successes Recognize when your team reaches a goal, nishes a big project, or successfully completes a difcult month. It is so easy to jump right into the next project without taking a moment to celebrate what was accomplished. Celebrations could take the form of a ve minute recognition and round of applause or something bigger. The purpose is to acknowledge the accomplishment. Recognize tenure Employees often remember the date they were hired. Add your employees employment anniversaries to your calendars. A note of, Happy Anniversary! Thank you for being a part of our team for years, can make an employee feel special. Say, Happy Birthday How good does it feel when someone remembers your birthday? Mark your calendar with your employees birthdays and be sure to wish them well on their day. Want to do something extra special? Send your employees a card to their homes on their birthday. Online services, like, make it easy to pick out cards and schedule the delivery. You can even add your logo or a picture of you and your team member. Reward employees through contests Contests can add an aspect of fun to the workplace. Create contests around sales or work goals. Competition between departments or even individuals in a department works well. The prizes dont have to be costly. The reward of being the winner provides motivation by itself. Services like make it easy to create and keep track of your contests. This online system allows you to customize your contests and prize selections while providing an online billboard with contest results. Contact if you would like a free demo. How are YOU going to say thank you to your team members today? Andrea Hoffer brings a unique perspective to consulting and training. A small business owner with 35 employees herself, she knows rst hand the everyday challenges of motivating employees, exceeding customer expectations, and meeting business and revenue goals.

The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 23 CBRE ARRANGES SALE OF DELRAY BEACH WAREHOUSE Delray Beach, FL CBRE has arranged the sale of a Class A ofce/warehouse building in Delray Beach, Florida. The 18,876-squarefoot building on 2.49 acres at 735 SW 15th Avenue sold for $1,510,080, or $80 per square foot, to QH Holdings, LLC. RQ Building Products, a home building products supplier, intends to occupy the building beginning in October. CBRE represented the buyer. Owner/user buildings like this one in Palm Beach County are becoming more difcult to acquire because the cost of industrial land and construction is steep, said CBRE Vice President Owen Sagar. The Class A building consists of 14,500 square feet of warehouse space with 30 clear height and 4,613 square feet of ofces with quality nishes.

Both sales and prices demonstrate that Floridas housing market is growing and continuing to gain strength, says 2013 Florida Realtors President Dean Asher, broker-owner with Don Asher & Associates Inc. in Orlando. The growth in jobs and other positive signs are putting buyers at ease with how the economy is progressing. At the same time, prices are encouraging sellers to get off the fence and helping to ease inventory pressures. August is the 20th month in a row that weve seen the statewide single-family home median sales price increase year-over-year. Statewide closed sales of existing singlefamily homes totaled 20,933 in August, up 12.5 percent compared to the year-ago gure, according to data from Florida Realtors Industry Data and Analysis department in partnership with local Realtor boards/ associations. Closed sales typically occur 30 to 90 days after sales contracts are written. Meanwhile, pending sales contracts signed but not yet completed or closed for existing single-family homes rose 17.2 percent over the previous August. The statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes last month was $175,000, up 18.6 percent from the previous year. According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), the national median sales price for existing single-family homes in July 2013 was $214,000, up 13.5 percent from the previous year. In California, the statewide median sales price for single-family existing homes in July was $433,760; in Massachusetts, it was $350,000; in Maryland, it was $286,758; and in New York, it was $241,947. The median is the midpoint; half the homes sold for more, half for less. Housing industry analysts note that sales of foreclosures and other distressed properties downwardly distort the median price because they generally sell at a discount relative to traditional homes. Looking at townhouse-condos, a total of 9,491 units sold statewide last month, up 6.3 percent from August 2012. Meanwhile, pending sales for townhouse-condos last month increased 11.6 percent year-to-year. The statewide median price for townhousecondo properties was $130,000, up 25.2 percent over the previous year. NAR reported that the national median existing condo price in July 2013 was $209,600. The inventory for single-family homes stood at a 5.1-months supply in August; inventory for townhouse-condos was at a 5.2-months supply, according to Florida Realtors. The most striking feature of this months data relates to new listings and inventory, says Florida Realtors Chief Economist Dr. John Tuccillo. Each month in 2013 has seen a rise year-over-year in new listings for both single family homes and townhouses and condos, with the exception of March for condo/townhomes. Balancing out the growth in closed sales, the increase in new listings has contributed to steady inventory. Singlefamily-home inventory is now at 5.1 months for August 2013, after holding steady at a 5-months supply in May through July. Condo/ townhome inventory remains at a 5.2 months supply for the third month in a row. Combined with a relative decline in cash sales, this suggests that the pressure on inventories that has plagued the Florida market may be easing. According to Freddie Mac, the interest rate for a 30-year xed-rate mortgage averaged 4.46 percent in August 2013, up from the 3.60 percent average recorded during the same month a year earlier.

24 November 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple By Jeremy Ofce Special to The PineappleI think we have all been there. You get in the car for your morning commute, turn on the radio and hear the same five or 10 songs every single day on rotation. With all the artists in the world, why am I listening to the same songs over and over? One way to tackle this musical conundrum is to break out the trusty old CD collectionresurrect some of the tunes that you havent heard in a while. As you begin your symphonic journey that song playsU Cant Touch This by MC Hammer. This song was beyond popular, but as MC Hammers life took twists and turns, it almost became embarrassing to listen to it. But your foot is tapping and you cant help but wonder if this isnt part of your music allocation. Investors believe that emerging markets offer a more compelling growth story than developed markets. As emerging markets experience rapid growth, it is usually accompanied by a rise in industrialization and an expanding middle class. The most commonly known emerging markets are Brazil, Russia, India and China. This group of countries was coined the BRICs by former Goldman Sachs Asset Management Chairman Jim ONeill in 2001. Today, emerging markets have expanded beyond the BRICs and now include what some call the Next Eleven or N-11. These 11 countries are regarded as having the highest potential to become global economic powerhouses over the next century. The N-11 consists of Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Turkey, South Korea and Vietnam. Over the past decade, the economic growth in emerging markets has outpaced that of developed markets. Investors look to emerging markets for the opportunity to reap outsized gains on global growth. If you could handle the volatility, this has played out well for you. In recent years (and particularly in the past few months) emerging markets have come under tremendous pressure. A global accommodative stance on monetary policy has made traditional sources of yield less attractive. As the Fed established quantitative easing (QE) and artificially pushed rates to historical lows, investors pumped over $1 trillion into emerging market economies in a search for yield. These flows created cheap external funding, which pushed domestic interest rates lower and led to rapid domestic credit growth, consumption and investment. When the possibility of Fed tapering began to seem more like reality than speculation, demand almost instantly dried up as higher interest rates limited the ability for emerging economies to finance their growth. This led to slowing growth and the destabilization of currencies worldwide, which caused emerging market stocks to sell off against the backdrop of higher rates and a stronger dollar. Recent global economic and financial concerns have also resulted in attractive emerging market equity valuations, especially relative to their potential for growth. With all of todays headline risks, emerging markets may continue to underperform this market, but in the future they have the most growth potential. As developed markets are expected to experience subdued growth, (approximately 2.0%.5% growth in the United States, flat-to-negative growth in Europe and 1%.5% growth in Japan), investors are drawn to the potential growth opportunities in emerging markets. With growth comes urbanization and with that, the transition from rural to urban areas. Coinciding with urbanization is the need for infrastructure such as highways, housing, schools, utilities and public transportation. As emerging markets experience growth, we expect a large and fast-growing middle class to emerge as a meaningful consumer force. We see this as a major tailwind for emerging markets and a catalyst for future investment. As global economies and capital markets become increasingly cohesive, emerging markets are expected to play a larger role as a source of growth. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) expects emerging markets to grow by 5% this year and 5.4% next year. This is about four times as fast as developed markets. The IMG also expects that more than 70% of the worlds growth will come from emerging markets. As demographics evolve in emerging markets, growth in population, increases in consumption, and gains in productivity should continue to drive and support these economies. With all the recent news on the reemerging markets, you might think, U Cant Touch This. But emerging markets shouldnt go in a box in the back of your allocation closet. Understanding how these markets work and what type of environments are best for them will allow this investment vehicle to remain in your rotation. With proper long-term asset allocation, you can touch emerging markets.

In 2003, he and his wife Gayle were tired of the cold winters in Long Island, N.Y. and decided to relocate. Cava sold his contract packaging business to his partner, packed up the house and moved to Delray Beach. His grown children decided to make the move as well. It was all they hoped for and Cava, never one to rest on his laurels, started looking for a new business opportunity. He was attracted to EmbroidMes concept and bought his franchise in 2005 while his wife, who is a nurse, started working at a local hospital in the ER. The future they anticipated was bright and quite warm. We were hit with three major hurricanes right when we opened, he recalls. It left our shopping center a mess and affected many business owners in our area. We had no power for 14 days and in all it took two years to repair the center fully. And outside the shopping center, the recession hit. Cava could never have predicted the obstacles hed have to face to turn his EmbroidMe business into the success it is today. Thanks to his sharp business savvy and the support of his family, especially his sonin-law who he calls his right hand man, hes built a loyal customer base and strong presence in Delray Beach and Boca Raton. Cava says what he and the other business owners in Delray Beach faced in the wake of hurricane season and the recession was the perfect storm for business. It was a real tough period, he said. All of us fought through it together, which strengthens your ties to the community in ways you dont really expect. He began working with Florida Atlantic University offering embroidery, digital transfers, screen printing and other services for the University. He also developed lasting business relationships with other schools, local medical facilities, small businesses, and restaurants as well as consumers looking to personalize gifts. Cava also credits his family for providing not just support and love during the recovery period, but also boots-on-the-ground work. His son and wife both attended EmbroidMe training school with him and his son-in-law Jeff Rosado and have helped with the business whenever theyre needed. Jeff worked with me when I owned the packaging business on Long Island, and hes been with me since day one at EmbroidMe as well, he said. His technical knowledge of the embroidery and printing business is key. The community has embraced Cava and the product he offers. I sell service and quality, he asserts. Ive been around the block a few times and I know that offering a great product thats on time is more important than being the cheapest guy on the block who promises the world but cuts corners along the way. Because of my business philosophy and focus on quality, Ive become the go-to guy in my community and I plan to maintain that. With this mentality, Cava has been able to build on the deep relationships hes secured with members of his community to continue to acquire new clients. In looking toward the future, Cava simply wants to grow his business and enjoy the beautiful weather and his family.Weathering the perfect storm

The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 33 What is your idea of perfect happiness? My idea of perfect happiness is waking up someday with less expectations about my work,and a cold glass of beer on a beach house with my kids, my husband and I in perfect health. What is your greatest fear? That nowadays violence and craziness could affect my family. Where do you nd artistic inspiration? In books, movies, history, my family, my past, as I am always learning with my own surroundings. Which living person do you most admire? My dad, self made man, he is like Phoenix. Things can be so tough for him (in business and in life) sometimes, but he always seems to come back completely, and regenerated, each and every time. Who is your favorite artist? Kiki Smith, but I also love Audrey Niffenegger. What do you consider the most overrated virtue? Faith. Which words or phrases do you most overuse? Oh, well. When did your rst know that you had to become an artist? At age 10. I started to transfer images from fashion magazines my mom use to buy, like Marie Claire, onto paper, color it and sell at school for something like $0.50. After my math teacher bought one for $1.00 I raised my price. That was me already establishing a relationship between art and art buyers. What is your greatest regret? Is having regrets! What or who is the greatest love of your life? Sounds corny but, it is actually my current husband, I was married 3 times before, but this is the rst time I actually fell in love with someone. When and where were you happiest? Now. Here. Which talent (other than being an artist) would you most like to have? MUSIC for suuuure! (piano player or guitar player or even being a singer). If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My stubborn ways! What do you consider your greatest artistic achievement? Hand cutting 18 feet of tyvek paper in intricate cut outs in less than a month to be layered on a pool. If you were to die and come back as a person or thing, what do you think it would be? Myself again...I think I need more time to learn about myself anyways. What is your most treasured possession? My happiness. What do you most value in your friends? Honesty. Who are your heroes in real life? My family, and activists Malala, and Aung San Suu Kyi What is it that you most dislike? Bigotry. What is your motto? Simple and repeated too many times but my favorite is always: Treat people as you want to be treated.Karla Caprali is a visionary artist, blurring the lines between drawing, painting and sculpture with her cut-out installations. Her works are didactic, delicate details, yet a scope that is large and fully encompassing, intimate yet distant. Caprali is a native of Brazil. After studying at the School of Visual Arts in Sao Paolo, she relocated to New York where she exhibited in many prestigious galleries. Since moving to Miami twelve years ago she has exhibited in Art Basel and Wynwood Art Fair (part of the Marguiles Collection beneting The Lotus House). She is a resident artist at Bakehouse Art Complex and operates Caprali Studios (art classes and workshops). Karla recently participated in Sustain, the group exhibit at Art House of Delray. Ms. Caprali creates work using many media; painting, drawing, and paper cutouts, often in combination, to achieve very intricate, unique works. The images convey personal experiences. She explores the concepts in memory and perception. The inuence of Brazil is an omnipresent factor, the nature, the fables and myths. Her works also explore an ever-present sense of tension; the struggle and ultimate balance between forces of nature, light and dark, positive and negative, past and future, the daily routine of motherhood with dreams and memories. Art, for me, is like a child lost in the wilderness, a ghost of life grasping for some roots to cling to. Karlas work probes both format and concept. Recently, she has found inspiration in the Florida mangroves, both imagery and emotion are reected. Her cut paper and wire installations are weightless, yet extremely sculptural, inhabiting space in both 2 and 3 dimensions. The use of durable mylar paper allows her work an incredible freedom of form, either oating on water or suspended in the air. Karla will partake in Scope, International Art Show in Miami December 3-8, 2013. 20QuestionsArt House of Delray255 NE 6th Ave., Delray Beach, FL 33483 561.859.0856 Karla Caprali BOCA RATON, FL Boca Raton will host a special evening on Friday, November 22 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Mizner Park Cultural Arts Center, 201 Plaza Real, to announce the 2014 line-up of artists and authors.

Neil Simon, Marvin Hamlisch and Carole Bayer Sagers collaboration is a delightful tale of ( love, comedy and musicBOCA RATON, FL It is said that opposites attract. Pair a somewhat up-tight classically trained musician with a young lyricist whos a little bit more than out there, and sparks just might y. Add a script by comedy master Neil Simon to the mix, stir in music by Marvin Hamlisch and lyrics by Carole Bayer-Sager and musical theatre magic is bound to occur.

The show will run from November 8th through November 24th. The two will portray Vernon Gersch and Sonia Walsk, the ctional counterparts to Hamlisch and Bayer-Sager whose reallife romance served as the inspiration for the musical. Theyre Playing Our Song was an enormous hit when it played on Broadway, says BRTG Artistic Director Keith Garsson. It ran almost three years. The script and score still resonate with great music and very funny dialogue. And the theme of the show that can two people can maintain both a personal and professional relationship with some sacrice and compromise offers an extremely entertaining two hours. Theyre Playing Our Song was one of the last personal musicals, Garsson explains. It was the era of shows like Dreamgirls and Falsettoland. Soon afterwards, Broadway gave way to another British invasion with productions like Phantom of the Opera and Les Miz. Since then, spectacles have become the new normal. We have a terric team in place for this show, Garsson (who will also direct the show) continues. Caryl Fantel is our musical director, and Ron Hutchins will choreograph both Song and our upcoming production of Pippin. Theyre Playing Our Song is a terric t for us in that it hasnt been done often.

Adams Introduces 140 NE 2ND AVE. DELRAY BEACH | STUDIOSEVENHAIRDELRAY.COM CALL FOR AN APPOINTMENT: 561.859.1737 ITS ALL ABOUT YOU. Owner Dianne E. Adams fashion & beauty By Dianne E. Adams Special to The Pineapple I had the opportunity to spend some time in Italy recently. Although I was there for vacation, the hairstylist in me could not help but check out the Italian hair and fashion. Just looking at the Italian women I thought wow they look amazing. Although they always looked beautiful and nished, they also looked like they didnt even try to look that great. I thought I would see many avant garde styles and wild colors, I did not. What I saw was so much more. It was an ease with themselves and the way they looked. Looking from the outside it felt like they knew they had a secret and they were not telling. It felt like they spent no time on their hair and it always looked great. Upon that realization I set out to check out salons to see what they were up to. I wanted to bring this intangible feeling back with me to the U.S. for all of my clients. I started dropping into salons along my path and what I found was so surprising. Since the look is effortless I thought the salons might be effortless as well. Walking in I noticed just how serious these establishments were. There was no joking around, not a lot of chatter or clutter. What I did see was very straight forward, hard work. Yes, the employees and clients seemed happy to be there, but everyone was focused on what they were doing or having done. What I realized was that it would be impossible to bring that intangible thing back with me to the U.S. because it was not a technique, a color line or styling product. It was feeling good about themselves. Not over thinking.what am I going to wear, or does my hair look perfect today? These beautiful women had their monthly or weekly hair appointments booked for a year in advance. They took the time to make certain the basics were in place. Are my roots showing? Are my highlights down around my ears? Does my haircut look like my neighbors shaggy dog? Once these things are in order, the rest is easy. Get up, get yourself ready, dont take yourself so seriously. Realize that you already look fantastic. Take a look in the mirror, x your hair, x your makeup, but most of all, x the way you look at yourself and realize that you probably dont see the beauty that the rest of the world sees. Let that effortless Italian style carry you through your day and remember that you also have a secret youre not telling too! Dianne E. Adams is owner-stylist of Studio Seven Hair in Pineapple Grove.

The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 37 I DONT WANT TWO THANKSGIVINGSQuestion I just watched a trailer for a comedy coming out this winter titled A.C.O.D. (A Child Of Divorce). It is about the realization that the current generation of new parents may be the least parented generation of parents yet. Make sense? So, being that I come from a mess of divorced and remarried family goodness, my question to you is Do you think this next generation will learn from its parents mistakes and curb the divorce rate in our country OR are we doomed to continue our wasteful ways by continuing to throw marriages away like board games weve become tired of? Charlie, Delray BeachAnswer As the product of a couple that just celebrated their fortieth anniversary, I seem to be in the minority nowadays. The majority of my friends parents are divorced, but my parents married at 23, and are together to this day. Some of my friends with divorced parents are now married with kids and by all indications seem to be in it for the long haul, as all newlyweds probably say they are. Some are already divorced, some dont have kids, some are single, some are in relationships and on. I am thirty-two and have yet to be married. Why am I telling you all this? I am a big believer in nurture, and how you are raised, or not raised, having an effect on the person someone is or becomes, but with caveats. Is nurture bad news? It can be. A person usually wont be more than what they learn, be it from books, personal experience, observation or any other source, so if a kid sees nothing but his tomcatting, uneducated father and drunken mother arguing, the kid might grow up to be a high school dropout that smells like loose women and wine coolers. But heres the good news, we arent only what we learn from our parents. The same poor sap from our example might grow up to be a stand-up, successful guy, faithful to his wife and kids, Tolstoy on the table and tap water in his glass. He can be aware of the failings of his parents, decide that is not the path he wants to go down, and learn how to blaze his own path the only possible way: through effort, determination, and positive decisions. I want to say that I am not altogether sold that divorce is a horrible thing, just because it is supposed to be. In some cases I am sure it is the best of a bad situation. Children and families, like anything, probably grow best when they have a stable, positive environment. But I imagine a child being with two unhappy parents that are constantly arguing isnt better than a kid with two parents married to new people they love (or single, or whatever myriad family unit is out there that works). We all would prefer family units that are stable and healthy, but that isnt how life is. People change. My parents at 23 are different than they are now at 63, it just so happens that both versions love each other. Thats a long time, and our life expectancies are increasing allowing us even more time to evolve or devolve. Plus, there is some luck involved, had my mom, saint that she is, run off with that dude she went to prom with two months after my birth, perhaps my dad, saint that he is, might have divorced her. Life, and circumstances, can change. So, are we going to curb the divorce rates? Maybe so, on a case by case basis and if we marry the right people, for the right reasons, at the right times, and work diligently on our bliss. Focus on what you want and endeavor for it. Charlie, you might be married after a love-at-rst-sight moment and get buried together, I might be married six times and shot by a jealous husband. Anything is possible, but you must be diligent and conscientious of your fate if you want to control it. Trouble in paradise?

As part of its goal of keeping alive an awareness of the African American heritage, the Chorale is dedicated to the preservation and performance of the Negro Spiritual, a song that grew out of the African American slavery experience. Through its performances of the spirituals, the Chorale seeks to raise, as well as reafrm, the great tradition and contribution made to American music by African Americans. The lyrics of the spirituals not only represent religious ideals, but also carry several layers of social, political, and theological meanings. The Ebony Chorale is made up of singers, mostly non-professional talent, who dedicate their time to striving for excellence in the performance of choral music. They sing for the joy and the love of music. Founded and directed by the gifted and accomplished Dr. Orville T. Lawton, The Ebony Chorale debuted in 1992, performing with the Florida Philharmonic Orchestra. In July 2010,the Chorale traveled to Salzburg, Austria.

38 November 2013 T he Delray Beach Pineapple Once was not enough for Double Trouble! The dynamic duo sold out two benet concerts held at Arts Garage in Delray Beach raising $5,000 which will be used for their living expenses. The talented twins, Tashad and Rashad Gardenhire, faced a difcult youth, but overcame the immense challenges of the foster care system and then homelessness, by keeping focused on their love of music. Through a community outreach program, Drew Tucker, Director of Education & Outreach at Arts Garage, chose to mentor the boys by providing them with musical and scholastic instruction in exchange for working at the venue. Watching Tashad and Rashad on stage singing, dancing and interacting with the crowds was so amazing, said Tucker. I know many people came to support them because of their story, but everyone left saying what an incredible show they put on! The boys love being performers and it is our goal at Arts Garage to help them achieve that dream. Double Troubles musical repertoire ran the gamut including personalized raps, Michael Jackson hits, Motown classics and Nat King Cole favorites. Their versatility is what sets them apart, said Tucker. The easily switch genres and they relate to all age groups on stage. Watching them is truly inspiring. And so is their story. The boys father began serving a life sentence before they were born; their mother, a drug-addict left them, and they became victims of the foster care system. Their love of music, and each other, helped them survive. And now that dedication is paying off. Sleeping in Delray Beachs playground, the boys third grade teacher found them just when they were teetering on oblivion and rallied supporters to fund their audition on X-Factor. The pair was on the current season, and is now looking to break into the music industry with the help of Arts Garages mentorship and the many wonderful people who are supporting their dreams.

And while professional pianists and music groups volunteer to go around and perform scheduled concerts on the pianos, Kretzer said that the most fun is in children (up to age 94) sitting down and plunking away. The main message is that everyone is invited and everyone can play, Kretzer explained. And after their public debut, the pianos will be donated to local childrens charities and community organizations, enriching lives for years to come. These whimsically-painted pianos will be found at the following locations: Arts Garage, City Center Plaza, CityPlace, Clematis Street, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, Palm Beach County Cultural Council, Downtown at the Gardens, Downtown West Palm Beach Waterfront, Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Kretzer Piano in Jupiter, the South Florida Science Center and Aquarium and other fun venues throughout the area. Keys to the Cities is a collaborative project of the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation, the City of West Palm Beach, D.C. Moore Piano Movers, the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County and Jerrys Artarama. There will be a big Kick-Off party in the Lake Pavilion in West Palm Beach on Friday, November 1 from 7 pm-9 pm. Tickets are $100 each payable to the Kretzer Piano Music Foundation, Inc. a 501 (c)(3). Be among the rst to see the Keys to the Cities pianos before they hit the streets of Palm Beach County! Open bar, hors doeuvres, live music, mix and mingle with the artists and a piano orchestra of 18 pianos being played simultaneously! We hope youll join us in celebrating the arts, one key at a time!

Celebrating our 16th year, Maestra Sebrina Mara Alfonso has designed a spectacular program for the rst concert of the season. The program includes Elgars Introduction & Allegro for Strings, Barbers Cello Concerto, Opus22, and Schuberts Symphony No. 9, The Great. The program begins with Elgars Introduction & Allegro for Strings, which is considered a masterpiece for string quartet and string orchestra. This piece is followed by Barbers technically difcult Cello Concerto in A minor (Op. 22). Clancy Newman, winner of the prestigious Walter W. Naumburg competition, is the featured soloist. His technique is brilliant but not showy and so natural that one forgets about it . His tone is dark, warm, and intense, with remarkable carrying power even in a oating pianissimo (New York Concert Review). The evening will end with Maestra Sebrina Mara Alfonso conducting the majestic Symphony No. 9 in C major by Schubert. The South Florida Symphony Orchestra has grown to become the preeminent professional orchestra of South Florida. Founder and music director Sebrina Mara Alfonso has worked hard to make her dream of bringing quality classical musical performances to South Florida a reality. After one of her concerts, Edward Pitts, classical pianist and music historian, wrote about Sebrina, I was particularly amazed at you. . Every inection of your body including your ngertips seemed to express the music. You were the music and the music was you. For tickets and information, please visit or call 561-243-7922.

The exhibit opens at the South Florida venue at 4801 Dreher Trail in West Palm Beach on November 16, 2013 and runs through Titanics fateful 102nd anniversary with the exhibit closing on April 20, 2014. While important scientic discoveries are made every day, said SFSCA CEO Lew Crampton, there are few as stirring and dramatic as those researched and recovered from Titanic. This blockbuster exhibit depicts an inspiring and dramatic time in our history and its discovery would not have been possible without the presence of modern day technology. We want visitors of all ages to be exposed to the notion that science is all around us, and we know this epic exhibit will accomplish that goal in a unique and highly educational way. We are grateful to the Quantum Foundation for their sponsorship in assisting us to underwrite this important exhibit. Were convinced that from young to old, visitors of all ages will enjoy Titanic! The exhibition has been designed with a focus on the legendary RMS Titanics compelling human stories as best told through authentic artifacts and extensive room re-creations. Perfume created by a man traveling to New York to sell his samples, china etched with the logo of the elite White Star Line, even personal effects like a cigar holder, toothpaste jar and a calling card-these and many other authentic objects offer haunting, emotional connections to lives abruptly ended or forever altered. Visitors are quickly drawn back in time to 1912 as they enter the exhibit, with each receiving a replica boarding pass of an actual passenger on board Titanic. They then begin their chronological journey through the life of Titanic, moving through the Ships construction, to life on board, to the ill-fated sinking and amazing artifact rescue efforts. Visitors will marvel at the recreated rst and third-class cabins, and can press their palms against an iceberg while learning of countless stories of heroism and humanity. In the Memorial Gallery, guests will take their boarding pass to the memorial wall and discover whether their passenger and traveling companions survived or perished. Over the past 15 years, more than 25 million people have seen this powerful exhibition in major museums worldwide, from Chicago to Los Angeles and Paris to London. RMS Titanic, Inc. is the only company permitted by law to recover objects from the wreck site of Titanic. The company was granted Salvor-in-Possession rights to the wreck site of Titanic by a United States federal court in 1994 and has conducted eight research and recovery expeditions to the sunken ship, rescuing more than 5,500 artifacts. We know that a passion for science is at the heart of any health care career so, as a health care foundation, were excited that the South Florida Science Center is growing and developing as a center for science education in the region, said Quantum Foundation President Eric Kelly. Big exhibits like this help draw new people in to explore the world of science and this exhibit will encourage those who havent experienced the newlyrenovated museum to come and see how just how exciting it is. The South Florida Science Center and Aquarium, formerly known as the South Florida Science Museum, recently completed a $5 million expansion and renovation and will host Titanic: The Artifact Exhibition in its newly expanded exhibit hall. With a new mission to open every mind to science, the Science Center features more than 50 handson educational exhibits, an 8,000 gallon fresh and salt water aquariumfeaturing both local and exotic marine life, a digital planetarium, conservation research station, Florida exhibit hall and an interactive Everglades exhibit.

Titanic Fast Facts 705 passengers survived, but 1,523 were lost. Even if all 20 lifeboats had been lled to capacity, there was only room in them for 1,178 people. Titanic was the largest moving object of its time. It cost $7.5 million to build Titanic, which carried a $5 million insurance policy. It would have cost about $400 million to build the ship today. More than 10,000 men worked on Titanic for nearly three years to construct the hull and internal structure. More than 100,000 people gathered to watch Titanic sail off to New York. For a third-class passenger, a ticket was $40 ($770 today). For a rst-class passenger, tickets were $4,500 a piece ($90,000 today). It took about 60 pounds of coal for the ship to move 60 feet. DRAMATIC STORY OF THE SINKING OF TITANIC COMES TO SOUTH FLORIDASouth Florida Science Center and Aquarium to host exhibit from November 16 through April 20 On view through February 23, alongside Breaking Boundaries: Contemporary Street Fashion in Japan exhibitDELRAY BEACH, FL Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens is making history, as it hosts the rst ever Kogei arts and crafts exhibition in the United States, through Feb. 23, 2014. Contemporary Kogei Styles in Japan was made possible through a special collaboration by the Agency for Cultural Affairs of Japan, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan and the Consulate General of Japan in Miami, with contributions from the Tokyo National Museum of Modern Art, All Nippon Airways Co., LTD., and Stella M. Holmes. Dedicated to representing the living culture of Japan, we are honored to host this unprecedented exhibition, said Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens Park Administrator Bonnie White LeMay. Our collaboration with various other organizations to make this happen attests to our valued relationship with Japan and helps establish us as a leader in art and culture. Representing a prestigious status in Japan, Kogei is an authentic Japanese art form that requires the practical use of natures artistic beauty by using organic natural materials such as stone, minerals, trees, and plants. Kogei has been associated with art and the evolution of the likes of Japanese tea ceremony and ower arrangement, giving rise to an appreciation of the beauty of rened traditional skills. Contemporary Kogei Styles in Japan features a unique collection of 90 Kogei style contemporary artworks, including ceramics, textiles, dolls, metal works, urushi (lacquer work), wood, bamboo, and glass. It showcases a selection of works from 39 highly renowned artists, as well as younger artists whose creativity has earned them recognition in recent years. Viewers will encounter artists who have spent many years acquiring and honing traditional skills with intricate historical connections, as they express originality while saluting tradition and adhering to utility and beauty. They will also nd artists whose brilliance in technique and harnessing the unique features of the source materials reveals the possibilities for original plastic expression, explained Contemporary Kogei Styles in Japan curator Moroyama Masanori from The National Museum of Modern Art, Tokyo. Both have earned acclaim for their works imbued with modernity. The rst Kogei collection ever exhibited outside of Japan, Crafting Beauty, which focused on traditional arts and crafts, was showcased at the world famous British Museum in 2007. The only other notable exhibition of Kogei was in 2012 at Palazzo Pitti in Italy. Titled Historic Art and Crafts, it focused on modern art. As the rst of its kind to appear in the U.S., this exhibit represents the starting point for a presentation of Kogei art worldwide. The Kogei artists, whose work is shown, are evolving the future of Japanese arts and crafts, as well as making international contributions to art and cultural interaction, added Masanori. Also through Feb. 23, the Morikami will host the exhibition Breaking Boundaries: Contemporary Street Fashion in Japan. It will display some of the most popular and imaginative clothing styles made and worn on the streets of Japan today.

Honeybees pollinate crops that make up one out of three bites of food on our tables and they have been literally vanishing from their hives all across the planet. Three fourths of the top crops grown in the world require animals mostly insects for pollination. The extermination of the honeybee could set off a worldwide economic disaster and food crisis. For example, bee populations are so low in the US that it now takes 60% of the countrys surviving colonies just to pollinate one California crop almonds. And this is not just a west coast problemCalifornia supplies 80% of the worlds almonds, a market worth $4 billion. Queen of the Sun takes a profound look at this global bee crisis and the beekeepers, scientists and philosophers from around the globe that have dedicated their lives to solving this mystery. The problems, challenges and solutions are explored in an effort to renew a balance with nature. An eight time independent lm festival award winner, Queen of the Sun has been described as One of the most beautiful nature lms ever made, Stunning, soulful, uplifting, humbling and alarming all at the same time. Organizers of the lm series suggest a donation of $7 per person for each screening. Proceeds of the donations would go towards the cost of showing the lms.

Noodle BarBy Jenny Preston Special to The Pineapple Its rare, a little strange in fact, that a garden is a meeting place. But when that meeting is with Chef Vaughan, it is a natural. Tucked behind the railroad tracks, lays the Boca Raton Community Garden. When asked why he decided to start a plot in this garden, Chef Vaughan answered, Seeing small gardens here in South Florida is huge, and Im happy to be a part of the movement. This movement is an integral part of who Chef Vaughan is and how he came to open Pizza Fusion, the popular restaurant that promises fresh, organic, and earth friendly pizza. My college years were over and I wanted to start living healthier. I wanted to be aware of what was going into my body and realized I didnt have a place to eat, that t my on-thego and organic lifestyle. Being no stranger to the restaurant business, an industry he grew up in, Chef Vaughan opened Pizza Fusion in 2006 in Deereld Beach, never imagining the mass success and franchise opportunities it would bring. Flash forward 7 years and now his hands are dirty. My wife and I have our own garden in our backyard and a homemade compost pile it stinks to high heaven but our dog loves it, he laughs. You can tell that Chef Vaughan is genuine in what he says and believes, which is only bolstered by the fact that one of his close friends and colleagues is Farmer Jay, a Delray Beach farmer whose own philosophy is rooted in local, sustainable farming. Jay provides Chef Vaughans restaurants micro greens and seasonal produce, and just recently planted the rows of herbs we are surrounded by. Theres basil, rosemary, three types of peppers, sprigs of thyme, cilantro, and a massive patch of mint. As we talk, Chef Vaughan and Kapow!

Thanks to, I have been to Bostons and 50 Ocean many times with friends and family and never been disappointed.

Other restaurants that Charitydine. com partners with in Delray Beach are La Cigale, Jimmys Bistro, Prime Steakhouse and many more. La Cigale is a very high end Mediterranean restaurant run by Francis Touboul and Zagat Rated 24.

We are extremely diligent when approached with a fundraising or cause marketing opportunity, said Mr. Anderson. Because of the Leagues strong brand awareness in the community we are presented with these opportunities almost daily. Our partnership with has been one of the most benecial promotional programs weve ever entered intoeasy, seamless, and completely transparent. CharityDine is truly a win-win-win program for the animals, for the socially conscious public, and for participating restaurants. By Joe Stout Founder and CEO Special to The Pineapple When I moved to south Florida from Michigan in the summer of 2005, I was caught off guard by the behavior of an alarming number of patrons and restaurants. I came to realize hospitality is a bit different in south Florida than the Midwest, and over the past eight years, I have witnessed head scratching events from both parties. So I thought I would take this opportunity to share some thoughts on how we can all make the going out for dinner experience a more pleasant one. The dining process is really simple, and should be a winwin for the restaurant and the consumer. The restaurant provides meals and surroundings at a price reective of the caliber of food being served, friendly and courteous service, and an overall pleasing experience. The consumer should enjoy all of the above mentioned attributes, be kind and courteous to the people working at the restaurant, as well as to fellow diners. At the conclusion of a satisfactory meal, pay the bill and if waited on, tip the server 15% 20% of the total meal. (or more if the service was exceptional) This is how it should work. But not every dining experience is ideal, and at some point, issues arise, something is not right, and someone gets their panties in a bunch. It is my goal to provide logical solutions so these hurdles can be easily overcome and everyone lives happily ever after. Lets rst discuss the two most common (and most obvious) nemesis of enjoyable dining. The bad customer The consumer we are talking about is not connected to a gender, race, religion, age, or social status. They are, in simple terms, special people. (or SPs) The reason for their specialness is a curious one, as there is nothing detectible to the human eye. They appear to be regular people, but inside brews a toxic and potentially lethal self perception that surfaces the minute they step inside a restaurant. In most cases, the special people do not limit their venomous and self serving methods to eateries. They can also be seen cutting off three lanes of trafc to make the turn they missed, and aggressively honking their horn at any given opportunity. They view wait staff/servers as servants/ peons, and for some bizarre reason, feel their value to society is greater than others. The bad restaurant This is a place where no one seems to really give a $#@! about you or anyone else. Management treats the staff poorly, the staff treats the customer poorly, the kitchen doesnt care, and the owner is the origin of this mudslide of disappointment. This is the place where the staff makes you feel like they are doing you a favor by letting you sit down at one of their dirty tables. No one smile, they are not courteous, and you wait long periods of time to be waited on. The hot meal is sometimes cold, your order is sometimes wrong, and worst of all, no one seems to care. They view customers as evil necessities and for some bizarre reason think people should support them just because. Lets take some sample situations and list the things you should do and the things you shouldnt do. A long wait to get a table Shouldnt do: Stare at the hostess/host hoping that your relentless gaze will shame them into nding you a table, or, keep mumbling I cant believe how long this is taking for other patrons to hear. Should do: Go to the bar, have a drink, and be glad youre alive. Or, go to another restaurant. Slow Service Shouldnt do: Constantly look around, look at your watch, whistle to get the servers attention, or act like a douche when the server does get to your table. If you are in a hurry, (going to a show, lunch, etc) let your hostess and/or server know you have a timeline before you order. Should do: Peruse the menu and converse with the people you are dining with. When the server arrives and offers no explanation as to why the service is slow, politely ask. Could be they are short staffed or another reasonable explanation. If the slow service continues and there is a sign of attitude from the server, ask to speak to a manager and respectfully share your frustration. Bad/Wrong Food Shouldnt do: Throw your fork at the server, whine like a baby, get up and walk out and go home and write a horrible online review. Should do: Respectfully share the issue with your server. If they do not resolve the issue to your complete satisfaction, again, ask to speak to a manager. Remember, management is trained and paid to handle these situations. How they handle your issue will tell you everything you need to know about this restaurant. Management Fails to Resolve Your Issue Shouldnt do: Accept it. The value of dining out should never be compromised. Mistakes happen, but you should never unload on a server for any reason (unless they hit on your wife) But accepting poor or rude service, bad food, and a bad attitude is reason to revoke your man or woman card. Should do: Write a letter to the owners. Its possible they are unaware of their poor management team and they do not want to lose your business. Until you hear from them, stay away from this restaurant. If you never hear back from ownership, dont go back and share your experience. If you do hear back, and your issue is resolved to your satisfaction, go back and share your experience. My simple philosophy is this: Never judge a restaurant on the mistake. Judge them on how they handle the mistake. And remember, dining out is supposed to be fun. Delray Beach has great restaurants with great people running and working at them. Be respectful, treat others the way you would like to be treated, and appreciate life.

The Delray Beach Pineapple N ovember 2013 51 NOVEMBER Porters are perhaps the most dynamic style of beer in my opinion. They are fun to pair with food, remarkably drinkable, great for all kinds of weather, and a nice dark option for hop lovers. My favorite porter is Stones Smoked Porter. This may be, in part, to my minor obsession with the pride and attitude associated with Stone products. The Smoked Porter is smooth, complex, slightly sweet chocolate notes, hints of coffee, and just smoky enough to not overwhelm your palate. Cheers to Stone for making a beer Id drink with ice cream or with a steak!

2 Delray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival T he Delray Beach Pineapple November 1, 2013 What a great time to be in Delray Beach. As I write Im in awe of our community and feel so blessed to be a part of it. This Fall the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce celebrates a huge milestone. Well be moving into our new offices on the first floor of the Old School Square Parking Garage, next door to the Arts Garage, across from the Hyatt. The process has been a real labor of love on behalf of so many in our community. We certainly could not have done this without the help of the City of Delray Beach and the CRA. And we definitely could not have accomplished this without the generous financial support of our members and friends. (Please see our list of generous donors to date here in the Chamber Connect and thank them when you see them around town!). I so appreciate our donorsthey have put a stake in the ground saying they care about this community and want to make sure business thrives, while we balance growth and work to maintain the charm and quality of life weve all grown to love and cherish. Our Board of Directors played a crucial role in our move and we sure could not have done this without them. Special thanks go out to our Chairman of the Board, Francisco Perez Azua, who also served as our architect for our new space, and to our incoming Chairman of the Board, Scott Porten, who brings a wealth of knowledge to us as a developer. Several Chamber members have dedicated countless hours to this project, including Annette Smith of AES Designs. Annette is responsible for our gorgeous interior design, along with Jo Lettera of Ofce Furniture Warehouse, who helped with furniture. Also thanks to our dedicated staff who have gone above and beyond this year to take the Chamber to the next level. All of you that have built a business and moved, understand it is no small feat to manage a construction project and a move, on top of operating a day to day business! Whew! We also recognize the giants of the past whose shoulders we stand on now. There are many individuals that have worked tirelessly in our community over the 87 year history of the Chamber, and have committed their lives to create this community that we have today. It is an honor and a delight to be a part of the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce at this moment in history as we pave the way for future generations. Please come by and see us! Most Sincerely, Karen Granger, Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce, President and CEO

The Delray Beach Pineapple D elray Beach Wine and Seafood Festival 7 If youve been around Delray Beach for a while, youve probably heard the name Stuart & Shelby. If not, youve heard the name Chuck Halberg. Perhaps youve seen his work as a builder, walked by his table at City Oyster or heard his motorcycle roar past as he and his wife head to a Friday night concert at Delray Center for the Arts. Well Halberg is making some noise again. This time for the Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce. Chuck has committed to a gift of $50,000 to be the Presenting Donor Wall sponsor at the new Delray Chamber ofces on NE 1st Ave. facing Hyatt Place. The ofces are slated to open to the public around Thanksgiving time!

Seating is limited and on a rst come, rst served basis so please be sure to get in your reservations in right away! BIG MOVE IS HERE!As you read this, The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce should be close to moving into their new ofces, located at 140 NE 1st St, in the ground oor of the Old School Square garage. The move has been a long time in coming the idea originated in 2006, after the Delray Beach Public Library moved out of their old site next to The Chambers current building. The City and the Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) proposed the idea of redeveloping the current Chamber property together with the old Delray Beach Library site and the adjacent public parking lot to bring mixed-use space to the corner of Atlantic and Federal. That was, as you may remember, just before the entire construction industry collapsed... that sale never materialized. At the time, it was anticipated that it would take 15-18 months to bring the project to fruition. Well, its taken a little longer than anticipated, but moving day is nally at hand. Along the way, Delray Beach itself has changed and grown the Arts Garage, our new neighbor in the OSS Garage, has blossomed on the cultural scene, while neighbors on the other side have reinvigorated and rebranded itself as the Delray Beach Center for the Arts. Across the street is the new Delray Beach Hyatt Place, helping ll the need for high-quality business hotel beds in our bustling downtown. While the plan changed over the years, there are several people who deserve special thanks. First, Francisco Perez Azua, the project architect. Francisco has been involved in the project from the beginning, and while the plan has been through several evolutions, the fact that it is coming to fruition at all is, in part, thanks to his dedication and willingness to donate many, many hours on design plans, re-designs, and planning and assessing the construction. Donna Sloan was the initial interior designer, and while the project has transitioned to another, she deserves thanks. And speaking of designers, Annette Smith of AES Interiors & Associates is responsible for current interior design, and she has also spent countless hours rening the plans and selecting just the right materials so that the nal result is impressive and professional. Finally, BluFin Construction has turned those visions into reality. At the same time as construction has taken place, The Chamber been looking within, at what it means to be in the business of being a Chamber. How business gets done has progressed, and chambers of commerce have to as well. We look forward to welcoming the community to the new Chamber. This luncheon is generously sponsored by Bethesda Memorial Hospital, Weiner, Lynne & Thompson P.A., and Greater Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce Chairmans Club. If you would like to join these sponsors in underwriting this important event and promote your business to our community and elected ofcials, please contact Patty, patty@delraybeach. com or 561-278-0424 x13 OFFICIAL MERCHANDISE New this year!
