Hello 2018!!!

Every January many of my friends make ‘Resolutions’

I, instead make a list of 10 things I’d like to

accomplish that year. One task is easy (organize

closet, or make doctor’s appointments), one is almost

impossible (win the Powerball), and the rest range

from 3-9 in degree of difficulty (eat more meals at

home, travel internationally, call distant family members). This

year I have decided to only make ONE... Be Kinder. In 2018 I will

strive everyday to be kind in every aspect of my life. I promise to be

kinder to myself, family, friends, and even strangers. My hope is that

consciously making an effort to be kind will help me see the kindness in

others, and those lacking kindness may see it in me.

Which leads me to our January City Person Carol Eaton - Delray

Beach’s own Mother Teresa. The love and generosity of this woman is

immeasurable. She gives all of herself to family and community. Her

philanthropy reaches all across Delray - we are lucky she chooses to live

in our City by the Sea.

And speaking of Luck... We can all use a little bit of luck, right? Some

cultures believe that eating certain foods in January can help make the

new year a little luckier! Check out ‘10 Good Luck Foods’ and see if

anything appeals to you! I plan on eating them all for better odds!

Did Santa bring anyone an engagement ring for Christmas? Weddings

are no longer ho-hum ceremonies with predictable receptions. Read all

about the top 5 new ‘Wedding Trends’ for 2018 in our Special Features.

If you’re planning on travelling in 2018 - think about exploring the United

Kingdom. London is a popular city - but there are other less known parts of

the UK with many hidden treasures ready

to be discovered. ‘8 Great Places To Visit

In The UK After London’ will suggest a few

of these destinations.

All of us at Atlantic Ave Magazine

wish everyone a year filled with health,

wealth, happiness, and above all love.

Delray Chamber

Leads Group

Sets Record For


The Greater Delray Beach Chamber of

Commerce boasts many reasons why

businesses should join and participate, but

one of the organization’s Leads Groups, the

Delray Business Partners, can give thousands

of reasons for joining.

Leads Groups are entities within the

Chamber comprised of local business people

who share a simple belief—they can

be more successful together than on their

own. Through leads, referrals, sharing of

best practices and encouraging each other,

each group builds a network of trust and

confidence that helps its members thrive.

Under the leadership of Jessica Rosato,

Chairman of the Delray Business Partners

Leads Group, the group has set a record

for collaboration with one another. During

2017, the 30 members of the Delray

Business Partners generated more than

$150,000 of gross sales dollars by doing

business with one another as well as by referring

colleagues to potential clients.

Diana Hileman of Hileman Law states,

“People prefer to do business with people

they know, like and trust and this group

certainly provides the means through

which to do that. I have received many referrals

from our Delray Business Partner

members and certainly appreciate their

confidence in my business.”

According to Ms. Rosato, “Chamber leads

groups allow members to develop strong

relationships with their counterparts in a

variety of other businesses. At each meeting,

members are encouraged to exchange

business leads—potential clients or customers

for other members of the group. In

effect, their contacts become your contacts;

their customers can become your customers.

Members also rotate making short presentations

about their businesses.”

For information about the Greater Delray

Chamber of Commerce and Leads Groups,

Housing Authority

Releases 2017

Annual Report

The Housing Group (Delray Beach Housing

Authority (DBHA) and its nonprofit

The Delray Housing Group) has released its

2017 Annual Report.

This report to the DBHA Board of Commissioners

and the community highlight

a few stories of the 52 families enrolled in

the Family Self Sufficiency program, most

of whom are actively working on goals to

purchase homes, earn technical or college

degrees, secure higher paying jobs or to

simply learn valuable life skills such as financial

literacy and the importance of improved

credit scores.

The stories in the Annual Report include

the opening of Village Square Family Development,

which was a major milestone

in the redevelopment of that neighborhood

into a viable, mixed income community.

The completion of the West Settlers’

Mixed-Use building is another example of

fulfilling the goal of expanding affordable

housing within the City of Delray Beach.

According to Dorothy Ellington, President

and CEO of the Delray Beach Housing

Authority, “In 2017, we saw much progress.

We were also hard at work on new ideas,

planning and partnerships to meet future

challenges and to brighten the stories of all

those we serve at The Housing Group.”

dentistry, but place greater emphasis on cosmetic treatments, smile

enhancements, and implant reconstruction. My office is state-of-theart

Here’s what your neighbors are saying:

“When you walk into the office, you would never know it was a

dental practice. It actually reminded me of and really felt like I was

at a luxurious spa. The entire staff was so professional. Dr. Staller

explained what she was going to do to me in terms I could

understand. She worked with me at my pace and immediately

gained my trust. This is why I highly recommend such a quality

practice. I am so thankful for all the care and personal attention

I received.” - MILLICENT (Ft. Lauderdale, Actual Review)

locals only | delray under $50

By Darien Davies

Delray Under $50

Now that Delray Beach is a rising star in the art, culture and social scene,

it might seem a little difficult to find affordable activities, shops or

restaurants. I am here to prove you wrong. Delray Beach

offers a mix of high-end boutiques with laid-back

restaurants, and events for the whole family or

nightclubs for night owls. Here is what you can do

in Delray Beach in January for $50 or less.

It’s the first art festival of the year and it’s so exciting! January is

International Creativity Month, and what better way to begin the

next 365 days than with your creativity cap and complete opportunity.

If you need a little help getting your synapses firing, head

down to the 29th Annual Delray Beach Festival of the Arts on January

20 and 21. It’s a great way to peruse the creative designs of artists

from around the nation and get an idea of all the possibilities that

could be. This Festival is ranked as one of the top fine art festival in

the country by Sunshine Artist Magazine, and it’s easy to see why.

There’s a mile-long worth of artists that feature everything from

painting, sculpture, woodworking, jewelry, arts and crafts, exterior

art, homemade soaps, unique clothing, and more. There is absolutely

something for everyone, including those who just want to enjoy

strolling down the Avenue people watching. The Festival is held on

Atlantic Avenue from North Federal Highway to A1A from 10a.m. to

5p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free so that please

plenty of cash for you to get creative with, and for you to stop in to

one of the local restaurants for a cocktail (just to energize you for

more walking, of course). You might even find something for your

home or office that will remind you to be creative throughout the

year. The possibilities are endless! Visit www.artfestival.com or call

(561) 746-6615 for more information.

The events are a great showcase for our local businesses, and you’ll

also be privy to the hottest styles for 2018. It’s a celebration of life that

will last all year long! Events are held throughout downtown and general

admission/viewing is free. Visit www.downtowndelraybeach.com

or call (561) 243-1077 for more information.

Having limitless possibilities and opportunities is kind of stressful.

The “what if’s” are always around, and always will be, so

the best bet is to just pick the first option and run with it. Much

like you picked to live in Delray! If you are interested in re-finding

what you love about this city, hit the streets and wander around. January

is International Wayfinding Month and is a great time to enjoy all

the things great about downtown. Wayfinding encompasses all of the

ways in which people orient themselves in physical space and navigate

from place to place, so let’s orient ourselves on the Avenue. Grab

your bike (or rent one from Richwagen’s) and bike along A1A, rid-

We made it another year! Even though every day should be a

celebration, it’s easy to get caught up in the alarm of work,

social, and extracurricular life. But, have no fear, there is a

week-long celebration in your honor, where you are able to find a little

more fanciness to make your life a little more fun. January is Celebration

of Life Month and is a perfect time to celebrate your look, which

is where the Fifth Annual Delray Beach Fashion Week comes in. Held

January 24 through 28, you are invited to experience five days of beauty,

style and fashion (oh my!). Downtown Delray Beach’s designers are

business owners are the star of the show, with different events each

day: Opening Night Evening Wear Runway Fashion Show on Wednesday,

January 24; Delray on the Runway Designer Fashion Show and

Hair Show on Thursday, January 25; Tropical Paradise Luncheon and

Fashion Show and the Vince Canning Stiletto Race on Friday, January

26; Swim and Surf Runway Fashion Show on Saturday, January 27; and

Fashion Week Boutique pop-up shopping event on Sunday, January 28.

ing over at least the George Bush or Atlantic Avenue bridges for

the elevated sights. Stop at North End and walk north, checking

out all of the boats and kiteboarders, and chill out on the sand

and in the ocean for a while. Grab a Peroni at Caffe Luna Rosa

afterward and then head West as you window shop all of our

local merchants. Stop at Veteran’s Park to check out the boats

and kids playing in the playground. It’ll feel good to swing on the

swing set, so don’t pass up the opportunity. Continue west and

head to the Arts District where you can view the work of our local

artists. You might be thirsty so find your way to Park Tavern

for a draft beer and some shade, not to mention more people

watching at Worthing Park. There is so much to do in Delray and

all it takes is your feet. Enjoy finding your way in Delray, you

local you. Visit www.downtowndelraybeach.com or call (561)

243-1077 for a complete list of local hotspots.

Let’s be honest, the holidays are expensive. It might take a

couple months to get caught up from presents, traveling

and treating yo’self, but you still want to enjoy the weather,

the New Year, and your weekends. Do not fret, Old School

Square to the rescue! January is Financial Wellness Month and,

on top of making a plan for maximizing and improving your savings

for the year, is a great time to make sense of your dollars

and cents. So, when they offer their Free Friday Concerts and

you’re telling me that I can be entertained for $0, I’m in. The

month-long fun features Tony Succar & The Mixtura Band (Latin

flavor with a small tribute to Michael Jackson) Friday, January

5; The Kinected (pop/electro/Indie rock) on Friday, January 12;

Artikal Sound System (reggae/R&B) on Friday, January 19; and

the B Street Band (Bruce Springsteen tribute) on Friday, January

26. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and you’re invited to bring lawn

chairs and a blanket, but no coolers or pets. Keeping track of

your finances has never been this fun. The Concerts are held at

the Old School Square Pavilion at 51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit www.

oldschool.org or call (561) 243-7922 for more information.

It’s all about balance (and moderation, if you ask my aunt),

so let’s balance out the past month with this month. It’s no

secret that we spent that month of December (aka the holidays)

drinking and eating everything within arm’s length, and

that we are toying with the idea of dieting on water and lemons

until we lose our Santa’s-helper shape. But, it doesn’t have to

be that horrendous. January is Get a Balance Life Month and

thankfully the good people at PurGreens have it all figured out

for us. They focus on healthy food that can be served in a quick,

engaging way for active, on-the-go guests, so it’s perfect for a

quick lunch or post- or pre-workout snack. You can be certain

that you will leave with zero guilt regardless of what menu

item you order, which is because each dish was intentionally

created for nutrition and flavor. Sink your teeth into the roasted

sweet potato and chipotle black been collard green wrap ($11),

the cranberry walnut chickpea salad ($4/$7) or their Power

Bowl, with quinoa, ancient rice, carrots, almonds, cabbage, goat

cheese, golden raisins and homemade pesto for $10.70. They

also serve soups, breakfast items, shakes, acai bowls, dragon

bowls, 2 oz./4 oz. booster shots. It’s almost as if you can balance

out your holidays with one visit (well, kind of), but it’s so good

you’ll keep coming back for more. PurGreens is located at 45

N.E. Second Ave. Visit www.purgreensdelray.com or call (561)

276-7387 for more information.

Delray Artists Showcase Talents At Art Basel

Some hometown artists were able to

make their dreams become a reality.

For any aspiring or renowned artist,

being able to display your artwork at

Art Basel is an once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Art Basel has become the premier

art show located in Miami Beach. It provides

a platform for galleries and artists

to showcase their work, and sell their art

to collectors, museum directors and curators.

Art Basel also attracts art lovers

from around the world.

At this year’s event, local artists displayed

their artwork at the new installation,

Trackside. The warehouse offered

mural space for many local artists. This

was made possible with the help of John

Griffin and Glayson LeRoy of Galera Collective,

along with Ron Bloomberg of Bloomberg

Equities LLC. The goal of Galera Collective

is to create a living creative space

where artists and entrepreneurs find the

convenience and support needed to fuel

their creative and start up passions!

We are proud of our Delray Beach

grown artists!

Spring Forward (Mystic

Creek Series #4)

by Catherine Anderson

Released January 2, 2018

The New York Times bestselling author

returns to Mystic Creek, Oregon, with a

story about finding an unforgettable love just

around the corner. . .

When a favorite customer on his delivery

route needs a favor, Tanner Richards agrees to

help without a second thought. The last thing

he expects is to face off against the man’s spitfire


Crystal Malloy is near her breaking point.

Her beloved grandfather constantly skirts

the rules at the retirement center where he’s

recovering from surgery. She’s caring for his

escape artist dog, even if it means abandoning

her salon customers, and she has no time

for a romantic attraction to the handsome

new stranger.

After Tanner’s reassigned to Mystic Creek,

Crystal can no longer ignore how much she

misjudged the man’s good intentions. She

has known too much sorrow to easily open

her heart, but she can’t deny that Tanner and

his children could gift her with a happiness

beyond compare—if only she can forgive herself

for the past and accept that she’s deserving

of such a love.

You will assume you know the anatomy of

this tangled love triangle.

Assume nothing.

Twisted and deliciously chilling, “The Wife

Between Us” exposes the secret complexities

of an enviable marriage - and the dangerous

truths we ignore in the name of love.

Read between the lies.

Treating People Well:

The Extraordinary

Power Of Civility At

Work And In Life

by Lea Berman, Jeremy Bernard, Laura

Bush (FOREWORD by)

Released January 9, 2018

guide to personal and professional empowerment

through civility and social


skills, written by two White House Social Secretaries

who offer an important fundamental

message—everyone is important and everyone

deserves to be treated well.

Former White House social secretaries Lea

Berman, who worked for George and Laura

Bush, and Jeremy Bernard, who worked for

Michelle and Barack Obama, have written an

entertaining and uniquely practical guide to

personal and professional success in modern

life. Their daily experiences at 1600 Pennsylvania

Avenue taught them valuable lessons

about how to work productively with people

from different walks of life and points of view.

These Washington insiders share what they’ve

learned through first person examples of their

own glamorous (and sometimes harrowing)

moments with celebrities, foreign leaders

and that most unpredictable of animals—the

American politician.

This book is for you if you feel unsure of

yourself in social settings, if you’d like to get

along more easily with others, or if you want

to break through to a new level of cooperation

with your boss and coworkers. They give specific

advice for how to exude confidence even

when you don’t feel it, ways to establish your

reputation as an individual whom people like,

trust, and want to help, and lay out the specific

social skills still essential to success - despite

our increasingly digitized world. Jeremy and

Lea prove that social skills are learned behavior

that anyone can acquire, and tell the stories

of their own unlikely paths to becoming the

social arbiters of the White House, while providing

tantalizing insights into the character of

the first ladies and presidents they served.

Carnegie’s Maid:

A Novel

by Marie Benedict

Released January 16, 2018

From the author of “The Other Einstein,” the

mesmerizing tale of what kind of woman

could have inspired an American dynasty.

Clara Kelley is not who they think she is.

She’s not the experienced Irish maid who was

hired to work in one of Pittsburgh’s grandest

households. She’s a poor farmer’s daughter

with nowhere to go and nothing in her pockets.

But the other woman with the same name has

vanished, and pretending to be her just might

get Clara some money to send back home.

If she can keep up the ruse, that is. Serving

as a lady’s maid in the household of Andrew

Carnegie requires skills he doesn’t have, answering

to an icy mistress who rules her sons

and her domain with an iron fist. What Clara

does have is a resolve as strong as the steel

Pittsburgh is becoming famous for, coupled

with an uncanny understanding of business,

and Andrew begins to rely on her. But Clara

can’t let her guard down, not even when Andrew

becomes something more than an employer.

Revealing her past might ruin her future

- and her family’s.

With captivating insight and heart, Carnegie’s

Maid tells the story of one brilliant woman

who may have spurred Andrew Carnegie’s

transformation from ruthless industrialist

into the world’s first true philanthropist.

By Dr. Safranski

Sports Chiropractic and You

Top athletes choose chiropractic and you should too. Chiropractic has

been around for over 100 years but it wasn’t until the early-to-mid 90s

when athletes started using them to gain a competitive advantage.

Functioning at the highest level without pain in order to maintain

a long and productive career is important for top athletes.

It’s their job, it’s how they support their families. So why do

they choose chiropractic? Because they know it works, it’s not a

fad or a trend that proper motion and biomechanics coupled with

proper strength and muscle function in the body lead to a highly

productive athlete. They want to perform at their very best on the

field, the ice, and in the ring. All 32 NFL teams, 28 of the 30 MLB

teams, and all 31 NHL teams have chiropractors on staff. Even the

world’s best golfers have their own chiropractors. James Harrison

of the Pittsburgh Steelers spent countless dollars to make sure that

he is in tip-top shape, so that he can play every snap and be a leader

on the field. That money includes his own chiropractor that travels

with him throughout the season.

Why is this? These teams know how imperative it is to have chiropractors

as part of their medical team. Their knowledge of the

musculoskeletal systems and the biomechanics that accompany

each joint make them valuable assets to the teams. Team physicians

and medical staff now know that masking pain with medication

and inhibiting pain pathways is no longer the answer, and putting

injured players back on the field can not only make matters worse

but lead to much more serious injuries.

Chiropractors have the ability to diagnose and treat these injures

without drugs or surgery with sometimes instant results. This is

an invaluable tool and making them a crucial piece to the medical

team. The shift in conservative approaches to injury treatment is

not only in sports; it is becoming more relevant in medicine as well.

The option for surgery is now starting to become a last resort as

the athletes, and everyday people become more educated on their

bodies and the procedures it takes to fix injuries - looking for more

conservative approaches that get results is making waves.(However,

this is not true for all injuries, some require immediate surgery.)

Sports chiropractic focuses on not only the spine, but the hands,

feet, elbows, knees, shoulders, hips and all of the muscles and ligaments

that go with it. However, the main focus of sports chiropractic

is not really top-tier athletes, but it is to help your everyday

athlete be able to attain their personal goals. There are high school

football players aspiring to play college football, but have issues

with knees. Consider basketball players who are having issues

with their ankles. Golfers who want to improve their swing, or feel

like they don’t hit the ball like they used to, or even if you’re trying

to work through some arthritis.

The same principles of sports chiropractic that are used on

Olympians and professional athletes can be used on the everyday

athlete from the young ones to the retired ones. Maintaining proper

biomechanics in the spine as well as all other joints in your body

accompanied by proper muscle strength and tone can make significant

changes in your life and your workout routine. If you have a

nagging injury, or feel like you could be doing more but you’ve tried

everything, maybe it’s time to find a sports chiropractor.

The Silhouette Instalift

A new alternative to injections and fillers

Peering into the Fountain of Youth with a single wish in hand, most

beauty seekers would go for a revitalized face. Loss of skin tone (facial

sagging) and the stealthy appearance of wrinkles, lines and creases, are

the main signs of facial aging, a natural process that worsens with time.

This inevitable evolution is due to a loss of collagen and elastin, the

providers of skin firmness. The face also loses fat, depleting volume

and causing hollowness in the cheeks and a heaviness under the

chin, thus, the arrival of “joules.”

Up until recently, choices to restore facial volume were limited to injections

called “fillers,” or more invasive surgical or ablative laser interventions.

The cutting edge however now includes a wonderful alternative

called The Silhouette Instalift. This is a self-dissolving suspension suture

that is capable of providing volume, stimulating lost collagen

production and actually repositioning skin.

The Silhouette Instalift is a technological innovation offering

both men and women a spectacular solution to a universal

problem in a simple and minimally invasive way. The reshaping

of the face and the restoration of lost volume are

but thirty minutes away in the hands of a skilled cosmetic

surgeon. By installing several of these absorbable

sutures, the surgeon can literally redefine a face,

restoring volume and gently lifting the skin. In

this veritable new art form, the effects of aging

are significantly reduced.

The Silhouette Instalift leaves no scars

and can be applied to all areas of the face

and neck to restore youth and vitality. Recovery

time is minimal and patients quickly

return to normal activity and a full social life.

The absorbable sutures are manufactured

in the United States and are FDA approved. The

treatments have been wildly popular in Europe,

but are gaining momentum at home. In the last

three years, more than 130,000 successful treatments

have been accomplished worldwide.

The faces of America will soon robustly

plump up that number.

By craig spodak, dmd, pa

How To Choose The Right

Dental Office In 2018

Your dental team is

key for maintaining

a healthy smile.

Let’s face it, there are dentists everywhere. There are offices

that are family owned, corporately owned, or somewhere

in between, and all would love to have you as their patient.

Choosing a dental team is a very important decision because your

dentist and hygienist do more than simply clean your teeth. There’s

a myriad of additional factors they examine because they know that

oral health is linked to overall health, which is why it’s important to

visit them regularly. If you haven’t visited your dentist as much as

you should, start by asking yourself why. If you find that you want

to switch dentists in the New Year, have recently moved, or just

want to evaluate your options, read on!


What is most important to you? Are you looking for a dentist that

offers evening and weekend hours, financing options, sleep dentistry

(if you have dental anxiety) and/or up-front conversations about

costs and benefits? Each dental office offers something just a little

bit different, but that one main difference could be the factor that you

need. The goal for your dental team is to help you keep your teeth

for a lifetime and to put your oral health as their main concern. The

office should make it as convenient as possible for you to visit them

regularly, and work hard to honestly earn your trust and loyalty.

Comprehensive Care

It can be quite time consuming and frantic to visit several offices

should you need additional work beyond a routine cleaning. This is

why it’s incredibly convenient for a dental office to offer both general

and specialty dentistry in one location. This saves you not only time,

but also money.

Most often, dental offices will need to refer you out to a specialist

if you need, for instance, a root canal. At this specialist’s office, you

might be charged a consultation fee so the doctor can assess if he/

she agrees with the diagnosed treatment. So, not only do you have

extra fees, you also had to take additional time off of work for this

second appointment. Having all general and specialty dentists under

one roof allows you to have several “second” opinions and the ability

to have multiple treatments done in one visit.


If the best is available, then get the best! Advancements in dental

technology happen all the time and the best option for you six

months ago might not be the best option now. This is why it’s so important

to choose a dental office that has the most up-to-date and

state-of-the-art equipment, which affords you the best techniques

and treatments possible. Advancements in dentistry offer several

time-saving and minimally invasive benefits, including orthodontically

moving teeth into alignment without braces (Invisalign), laser

gum treatment without cutting or sutures (LANAP), same-day

crowns and veneers without temporaries (CEREC), and same-day

total teeth replacement (All-on-4).

Make sure you treat your smile right this year! If you’ve been

avoiding your dentist for one reason or another, need a new dentist,

or just need a dentist period, check out your local dentists and see

which one checks all of your boxes. Your smile would love for you to

find a dentist you trust, we guarantee it.

5 Ways to Help Your

New Years Resolutions Stick

The holidays are over and you’re ready to unfluff and feel good

again. Here are some tips to make sure your resolutions are

attainable and will actually work for you. If your intention and

plan is right, you will have a much easier time sticking to you

goals. A healthier version of you is just a couple steps away!

1. Make Realistic Resolutions

Don’t set yourself up for failure before you even begin! Set goals that

are attainable and realistic. The more accomplished you feel the more

likely you are to stay motivated and pushing toward your goals. A resolution

shouldn’t be a fantasy. If you’ve never lifted weights before, attempting

to do so 7 days a week is probably setting yourself up for disappointment.

For most people, breaking or setting new habits doesn’t

happen overnight. The key to sustainable resolutions is to make small

changes gradually. If your goal is to go from never running to finishing

a half-marathon, start training gradually. Begin by walking a few miles

twice a week, and steadily increase the workload to jogging, and

then running over several months. Just keep the word realistic

in your head and you’ll be off to a good start!

2. Get Specific With Your Goals

Resolutions should be both specific and measurable.

Writing down your goals is not only a great

way to accomplish them, but your list can also

help you figure out the exact steps needed to get

where you want to go. “I want to lose weight” is

a pretty common New Year’s resolution, but

how exactly do you go from point A to point B?

Instead, try setting a more specific goal. For instance:

“I want to lose 10 pounds over the next

6 weeks by eliminating fast food meals and going

to the gym 3 to 4 times per week. I’ll then

maintain my goal weight for 6 months before

setting any other new goals.” The more specific

your goal the better your results will be. The

more vague your goals are the harder it will be

to attain them.

3. Set Non-Superficial Goals

Sure, looking good in a bikini is always a good

goal but superficial goals usually loose their appeal

after endless weeks of diet and exercise. Instead, try

picking a goal related to health and happiness. For example, regular

exercise has awesome benefits such as lowering cholesterol, boosting

overall energy, and even increasing happiness and decreasing depression.

Bringing some deeper intentions to your workout can make all

the difference in sticking to your goals. Looking good in a bikini should

come secondary to your main goal.

4. Buddy Up

Find a friend or someone with like minded-goals to keep and hold

you accountable. Accountability is huge. You are much more likely to

stay on track when you have someone to answer to besides yourself!

A buddy should also serve to help motivate and keep

things real. They should have no problem telling you to put

that french-fry down and get your booty to the gym when

you’re lacking your own motivation. If your buddy isn’t

doing their job, fire them and find a new one! There is

always someone looking to become healthy and fit.

5. Reevaluate Resolutions Often

How many people resolve to finish a marathon,

only to realize they kind of hate distance

running? Or decide to take up yoga and realize

they want something faster-paced?

A lot of things seem fun from a distance

but might not be a good fit in reality. If this

happens to you, it’s time to switch gears

and pick a different resolution. Don’t be

afraid to switch it up. If it isn’t working for

you pick something different and move

on. You’re much more likely to stick with

something that you truly enjoy.

Pellegrino Dining Concepts

Prime Tuscany Steakhouse,

Il Bacio Nightlife + Baciami Italiano

By Brittney Winters | Photos by Jake Ariel

When father-son duo Steven Pellegrino Sr. and Jr. first opened the doors

to Prime Steak Sushi & Seafood in 2010, their years of conceptualizing,

opening and executing restaurants to success in Rhode Island

introduced South Florida diners to a fabulous new night out.

Steven Pellegrino Sr. and Steven Pellegrino Jr. at the Prime Relaunch Party


Now, the duo has added Baciami Italiano to their ever-expanding

roster of inviting restaurants dishing out familyfavorite

recipes, commemorating their well-earned success

with the formal introduction of Pellegrino Dining Concepts, which

houses Prime Tuscany Steakhouse + Il Bacio Nightlife in Delray and

Baciami Italiano in Boynton Beach.

It’s not often you find yourself in an upscale Italian restaurant

that makes you feel like family, but that’s exactly what the Pellegrinos

have managed to achieve in not one but two successful South

Florida dining establishments. Over the last decade, they have

proven themselves to be distinguished restaurateurs who understand

that a superior culinary experience is made even better when

it’s delivered in a warm and hospitable setting.

Since it first opened on Atlantic Avenue in 2010, Prime has been

a mainstay for locals, snowbirds and vacationers alike, boasting

the freshest in land and sea, always offering a diverse menu

of locally-caught seafood and USDA-grade meats. In 2012, as so

many of us remember, the Pellegrino team took the opportunity

to incorporate their popular nightlife destination Il Bacio into the

Prime experience, and relocated the steakhouse to its current site

adjacent to the lounge, where it now transforms into a wild night

when the sun goes down.

Prime’s outdoor courtyard serves as the main dance floor for the

night club, an impressive 12,000 square feet of high-energy space

fit to easily contain a thousand guests in a single night. If you’ve

spent even one kismet evening at this nightlife hot spot, you’ve

been captivated by the dining, dancing and high energy entertainment

that guests can rely on every Friday and Saturday night.

Now, Prime Tuscany Steakhouse has officially celebrated its

much-anticipated relaunch, making significant menu changes and

updates to focus more closely on authentic Tuscan-inspired dishes.

You won’t find sushi on their menu any longer, but you’ll still be

able to order a fresh catch – this time it’s prepared the way your

Italian grandmother would do things.

From Grilled Jumbo Scallops with creamy asparagus risotto and

parmesan crisp to ever-popular Bronzino with roasted tomatoes

and garlic spinach, the flavors are straightforward, fresh and bold

– much like what you’d find on a traditional Tuscan table. And of

course, you can expect this steakhouse to deliver quality cuts of

meat; if you’re really looking for an impressive presentation, know

BACIAMI Prosciutto Pizza

Monogrammed Tomahawk Steak with Idaho potatoes and grilled asparagus

Prime’s skilled chefs add your initials to the final sear

that Prime is the only spot in the country offering a steak with your

name on it. That’s right – for $95, order the Monogrammed Tomahawk

Steak and Prime’s skilled chefs will not only cook it to your

preference but add your personal initials to the final sear, served

with the usual fixings of Idaho potatoes, grilled asparagus and

housemade onion rings.

Equally impressive as the spectacular menu at Prime is their

swanky interior décor, with a cozy dining room that opens up to an

expansive bar and lounge area featuring live entertainment including

a lively piano player. The space exudes character in every detail

from sparkling chandeliers to a stunning wine room, behind which

you can always find a private spot to dine and celebrate special occasions

with friends, family or coworkers.

If there’s one thing the Pellegrino family has down, it’s authentic

Italian cuisine and hospitality, neatly wrapped up into one package

– and lucky for all of us, they’ve brought their penchant for Italian flavors

to the heart of Boynton Beach with their new Baciami Italiano.

Following its Grand Opening in May, Baciami has become as

celebrated as its predecessor, establishing itself as an authentic

Italian mainstay, offering pizzas from an imported wood-burning

oven and dishes straight from the Pellegrino family recipe

book. Here, you’ll find signature dishes like Grilled Octopus with

baby arugula, white beans and potato, and Anthony’s Sunday

Gravy with meatballs, sausage, braciole and Guiseppe Cocco

jumbo rigatoni. If your mouth isn’t watering yet, it’s possible

you’ve never truly experienced traditional Italian fare the way

it’s been done for centuries.

Count on a memorable experience regardless of your dining preference

at Baciami. The al fresco patio overlooks Boynton’s newlybustling

downtown area, reminiscent of days spent sipping cappuccino

over tiramisu in old-world Italy, and the interior dining room

is anchored by a central bar, flanked by a gorgeous private dining

room perfect for celebrating milestones and holidays.

If you’re on the lookout for a great special, look no further than

the Pellegrino family’s weekly All-You-Can-Eat Stone Crab Dinner

Wednesdays at Prime and Thursdays at Baciami, serving up freshcaught

stone crab with soup or salad and a chef’s side, yours for

market price. Of course, the real treat is daily Happy Hour at both

Pellegrino Dining Concepts, featuring Italian wines and cocktails,

plus traditional bar bites to share (or not) for just $7.77 apiece.

The introduction of Pellegrino Dining Concepts marks a new

turning point for the restaurateur duo, officially uniting their numerous

successes under one roof and ensuring a consistent experience

from the food to the hospitality. From a pre-dinner Happy

Hour visit at the bar to a full-blown celebratory experience that

extends into the wee hours of the night, the Pellegrino family

keeps their promise to always make you feel like family – they

simply can’t help it.

Fun For All Reasons And Seasons

by diane feen | Photos by Emiliano brooks

The Delray Beach Club is a lot of things. It’s a beach club with

everything inside to calm your nerves, devour your intellect,

peak your culinary desires and exercise your body. From tennis

to swimming, fitness classes, body treatments and more.

Katherine Matzger, Mary Volpe, Dee Rose, and Gina Cayne

But there is one thing that cannot be purchased or ordered

from Amazon. And that’s Happiness.

It’s not easy to describe happiness, but you know it when

you feel it or see it. That’s why so many people have joined this slice

of heaven on the beach called the Delray Beach Club.

If happiness brings longevity – and the experts say it’s so – then

this beach club just South of Linton on A1A is the happiest place on

earth. The pristine environment includes a private 3.5-acre oceanfront

beach, a renovated clubhouse with card room, oceanfront dining,

serene open spaces, a swimming pool and enough activities to

keep your mind, body and soul in a blissful state.

They also have what is known as “Cocktails and Canasta” every

Wednesday at 4 pm. It may not sound exciting, but the gals at Delray

Beach Club have their own brand of canasta that is inclusive, friendly

and entertaining. Some call it “Girlfriend Canasta” but the Mother

Hen of this weekly activity, Carol Lane calls it “Classic Canasta.”

70 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

“We’ve really changed the vibe and the energy of the club on

Wednesday nights. After we play canasta we all meet in the Grille

Room (some with spouses or boyfriends) and have a great time.

We meet new people and make sure everyone feels a part of the

party, it’s a special night at the club,” said Lane, who wrote an Excel

program that allows the seating to change every week so women

get to meet new people.

And it’s working perfectly.

“Our canasta games are just joyful. We sit with different people

each week and get to meet new members of all ages. It’s wonderful,

I play bridge and tennis at the club as well,” said Kathy Klausner.

Klausner was sitting with Nancy Tormey and Charlotte Himmelrich

and the three of them were having a grand time. There was

wine or cocktails, light snacks, cards and a score card - all amidst

a clear view of the ocean and a lightness of being that casts a glow

over the players inside.

Everyone admits that bridge is a bit more cerebral, but “Cocktails

and Canasta” is more social and often leads to new friendships that

spill over into the Grille Room after the game. “The men come early

and socialize in the Grille Room and now many of them have become

friends as well” said Lane, whose husband Buff met her in the

Grille Room for cocktails and dinner in the Ocean Room.

If you ask Tormey she’ll tell you her take on this snappy game

that hinges on getting the right cards at the right time. “You make

40 new friends immediately and we play at Happy Hour, so we are

a happy bunch,”

Tormey is right. They are a happy bunch. They not only look forward

to the weekly Canasta and Cocktails games, but the numbers

prove their point. When they started in 2015 there were eight players

and currently they have 104. Word just got around, according to

Lane, that Cocktails and Canasta is a fun time and a wonderful place

to make new friends.

You don’t have to be a canasta player to join the group. Lane and

Daryl Dickson teach canasta to newcomers. For those who want to

stay for dinner after cocktails there is more socializing and laughter

in the Ocean Room. This lovely room – that faces the glorious ocean

– has excellent food and live music with crooners who serenade the

group. Carl Padilla played guitar and sang classic tunes that enlivened

the evening yet didn’t drown out conversation.

The Delray Beach Club is a private member-owned beach club

with a social calendar that rivals (or beats) the best of them. It’s

also family friendly with activities for children (at the beach) and

inside. There are also Bridge games and lessons, a Book Club, Art

Club, Theater Trips, Luncheons, Lectures, Musical entertainment,

Holiday Theme Dinner parties, Cabaret Nights and more.

Every Friday night is a “Mix and Mingle,” where members gather

by the pool, enjoy live music and complimentary hors d’oeuvres.

Happy Hour is the intimate cozy Grille Room. And, if you’re single

there’s an Open Table that makes everyone feel welcome.

The Delray Beach Club has a fitness center, Men’s and Ladies

Locker Rooms, Fitness Equipment, Exercise Classes, Personal

Training Sessions, Massages, Body treatments and facials.

If you’re a tennis player there are Har-Tru® Tennis Courts, Special

Tennis Events and a USPTA certified Tennis Pro. They have Tennis

Leagues, Round Robins, Drop-in Games, Pro-Am’s and Sunday

Tennis Socials followed by dinner by the sea.

There’s another reason why everyone says The Delray Beach

Club is life changing.“There are no strangers at our club, only

friends who have not met. We try our hardest to make sure everyone

here is happy here,” said General Manager Shane Peachey.

Peachey is right. There is a genuine friendliness that permeates

the premises. You don’t need to be family to feel part of one. That

might be one reason you may walk in a stranger, but you’ll always

leave as part of the Delray Beach Club family.

For membership information contact Diane Roberts at 561-278-

6226, ext. 15. The club is located at 2001 South Ocean Blvd.

Cigars And Celebration

By diane feen | Photos by melissa korman and harvey lustig

You always know when November 11th

rolls around. A big tent is set up in front of

Atlantic Plaza, there’s festive music, food

and good vibes infiltrating the airways.

Puro’s cigar manager, Jesus

It’s also the Anniversary date of Puro’s Cigar Shop in the front

of the plaza. Though they have a small footprint in the physical

world of retail, they have a large imprint on the psyches and

lives of those who call Puro’s their second home.

“My birthday is the day following Puro’s Anniversary party, so we

celebrate together,” said Dr. Gaspar Gonzalez. “I come here almost

every night - we’re like family. Eduardo serves his special blend of

espresso at night and everyone brings their wives or girlfriends

and we all have a night cap before going home,” said the Vice Chairman

of knockoutforacause.org.

It seems everyone who came to Puro’s 8th Anniversary Party relishes

the time they celebrate (and situate) around the Puro’s family.

The family consists of Lisbeth Garcia (the matriarch and co-manager),

Eduardo (the patriarch and friendliest guy on earth) Jesus, the

son and manager and Steve. All are revered for their kind hearts,

knowledge of cigars and ability to turn a small shop into an international

hangout for those who enjoy smoking cigars.

At their Anniversary Party – that is a tradition every year – the tables

are much longer, the music is live, the food is abundant and the

festive dancing cements the joie de vie of the moment. There was barbeque

skirt steak, chicken kabobs, potato salad and dessert. The grill

kept going and flowing with fresh food for all who came to celebrate.

“Puro’s has been open for eight years and has become a landmark

for the cigar business. This is not easy to do. They have great

customer service and it’s so personalized,” said Davidoff Rep Carlos,

who attended the party.

And he wasn’t the only cigar rep in attendance. There was Jose

from Ashton, Susan from Romeo y Julieta and Joaquin from My

Father Cigars. There was also a raffle with better prizes than ever

before. “We had an amazing raffle. We gave away a golf bag, a big

humidor, cutters and other big items,” said Lisbeth, who is revered

for being one of the few women in the retail cigar landscape.

The Garcia’s passion for their trade (and their customers) is legendary.

Regulars such as Frank Meersky, Dr. Gonzalez, Joe and Dave

gravitate to Puro’s almost every day. And it’s not just for the cigars.

“We all know each other, and the people here are respectful to everyone.

We’ve also had an influence on some younger people who

needed direction,” adds Dr. Gonzalez.

Usually the banter drifts from subject to subject – from

politics to medicine and back to sports and life lessons. When

there’s a sporting event on TV the Garcia’s bring out the flat

screen TV for guests outside. Betty Anne Irwin sat with a

friend (and other Puro’s regulars) and watched the Miami

Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills game on the patio of Puro’s. Though

Irwin is one of the few women to join the gang outside (where

camaraderie is at its zenith) she sat there smoking a cigar and

watching the game. “I know everyone here. It’s great to be outside

and have company. We talk about everything, and everyone

is respectful and gentlemanly.”

You bet they are. Kinship and camaraderie are so prevalent

at Puro’s that everyone says it’s like being in their living room

or a home away from home.

There is one difference - The Puro’s domain has a humidor

filled with premium cigars. They range from a wide selection

of Padron Cigars, Romeo Y Julieta, Ashton, Camacho, Avo, The

Griffin’s, Montecristo, Arturo Fuente, My Father Cigars, Rocky

Patel and others. They sell pipe tobacco (in assorted flavors

and blends) as well as lighters, humidors, cigar accessories

and espresso.

Their newest cigar, from Foundation is called The Wise Man

Maduro. It has Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Condega, Esteli,

and Jalapa with a rich San Andres Mexican Maduro wrapper.

The blend has flavorful dark roast espresso and cacao with a

Medium to Full-Bodied Smoke. Puro’s also carries Foundation’s

Super Premium Cigar, The Tabernacle as well as Charter

Oak Cigars. If there’s something you want that they don’t have,

chances are they will order it for you.

If you see people sitting under green umbrellas in front of

Puro’s you’ll probably be a witness to a happy bunch. As Vincent

Gonzalez recently said, “I come here a lot and have never

missed an Anniversary Party at Puro’s. They bring Latin culture

to Delray, and I couldn’t be happier.”

So is everyone else!

During the month of January Jesus and Eduardo are offering

a Special 20% discount on all boxes of Cigars with the Code –

Puros20. You must also bring this article for the discount.

Dr. Miguel Mascaró Creates

A Youthful Look For His Patients

By nicol jenkins | photos by melissa korman

If you are looking for luscious lips like celebrities

and youthful facial proportions like models on

the runway, that possibility is finally here.

Miguel Mascaró, MD at Tzikas Facial Plastic Surgery Center


more natural and youthful looking face can be found right

here in Delray Beach with Dr. Miguel Mascaró, a renowned

cosmetic surgeon.

Practicing at Tzikas Facial Plastic Surgery Center in Delray

Beach, Dr. Miguel Mascaró specializes in upper lip lifts, injectables,

fillers, surgical facial rejuvenation, rhinoplasty, eyelid surgery

(blepharoplasty) and hair restoration.

One of Dr. Mascaró’s specialties is the upper lip lift - a procedure

that addresses one area often overlooked in the aging process.

“When looking at what determines youth, we really need to fo-

76 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

cus on proportions. Often, the lower third of the face gets overlooked.

Most physicians address this by providing volume and

putting fillers in,” said Dr. Mascaró. “This works great. But it’s not

for everyone. Some procedures can go wrong because not everyone

is a candidate for fillers. If you have very thin lips, it can look

unnatural, and that is what we do not want. We want to create a

youthful look with a natural shape and fullness. This is where the

lip lift comes in.”

How does the lip lift procedure work? The lip lift addresses the

volume to the lip, allows the lips to look natural, and shortens the

distance between the nose and upper lip.

“As you get older, you get a longer looking upper lip from loss

of elasticity, less definition of the lip as it loses volume accompanied

with fine lines and wrinkles. We provide natural results with

a minimal scar hidden under the nose and a much more improved

shape of the lip,” said the local surgeon.

Dr. Mascaró provides the procedure with minimal downtime and

right in the office.

“It’s performed under local anesthesia, it’s almost like going to

the dentist. It only takes 45 minutes to an hour, and the recovery

time is only 5 to 6 days. We have modified and changed the lip lift

procedure over the years so now there is minimal swelling and rapid

healing. People from all over the world come to our office to get

this procedure and look and feel younger – but more importantly

– feel better about themselves,” said Dr. Mascaró.

Unlike in the past, the lip lift is not only for an older clientele. Dr.

Mascaró serves a wide variety of patients of all ages.

“Historically, this was really only for the aging face. However,

with my new technique, I am getting patients who are younger

women and men as well. The younger women, from 22 to 35 years

old, are looking for more volume, their smiles to look brighter, and

yet still maintain a natural appearance. I have men come in who are

also suffering from loss of elasticity and want an easy way to ‘turn

back the clock’. I also have older women who want to look more

youthful and are concerned with the changing proportions of their

face,” said Dr. Mascaró. “The lip lift makes a big difference in all my

patients. Some of my patients were previously getting a lot of lip

fillers from different physicians and they were stretching their upper

lip. I have corrected a lot of lip fillers.”

Not every procedure is the same. Dr. Mascaró takes the time to

meet with each of his patients and customizes the procedure for

their face and lips. He has modified the lip lift procedure so there is

minimal downtime and no scarring.

“Everything is catered to the individual sitting in front of me. I

don’t want to give the same lip lift to everyone. Sometimes my patients

just need a little filler, while sometimes the lip lift is what you

need,” he said. “The lip lift has been around for quite some time.

About five years ago, we re-examined why they were not having

good results. The technique was modified, and the results were everything

that we wanted. It slowly caught on and it is no longer

just Hollywood’s dirty little secret! Models and actresses were doing

this originally, and now anyone can get their lips done and look

more youthful,” said Dr. Mascaró.

As a fellowship trained Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeon,

Dr. Mascaró is inspired by a love of artful detail combined with a

genuine desire to help his patients look and feel their best. The

Delray Beach based surgeon is one of only a few in the country

Patient consulting with Miguel Mascaró, MD

to perform this modified lip lift procedure with such precision.

People come from all over the world to Delray Beach just for Dr.

Mascaró’s expertise. He received his training in Head & Neck Reconstructive

Surgery along with skin cancer reconstructions in

New York and perfected his cosmetic trade with additional training

with one of the pioneers of cosmetic surgery in Birmingham,

Alabama. When he moved to Delray Beach, he decided to focus

his expertise on cosmetic surgery to make his patients feel good

about themselves.

“I find it rewarding being able to give my patients something

they have been trying to achieve for a long time or have lost for a

long time. A lot of the patients who are coming for lip lifts, all of a

sudden don’t feel or look the same; once they have the procedure

and look in the mirror at how they look, it makes such an impact

in their lives. It can improve someone’s smile, the proportions of

their face, and give them a more natural look that makes a lasting

impact,” said Dr. Mascaró.

His patients praise the cosmetic surgeon for making them look

and feel better.

“Dr. Mascaró recently performed a lip lift procedure for me and I

could not be more pleased with the results. Dr. Mascaró and his assistants

have been wonderful throughout the whole process. They

answered all of my questions and provided clear instructions on

how to prepare and what to expect. I highly recommend Dr. Mascaró,”

said one of his patients.

“Dr. Mascaró is an amazing, caring doctor, incredibly talented

surgeon, his bedside manners are impeccable, his staff is awesome!

I am very happy with the results I got, actually it’s beyond

what I had hoped to get, so grateful! My case was very complicated

because I had previous surgeries that went bad, so he fixed it so

nicely! Thank you Dr. Mascaró!” said another patient.

Dr. Mascaro truly cares about his patients!

Agents Offer Local, Professional,

Real Estate Expertise

By nicol jenkins | Photos by melissa korman

When buying or selling a home, it’s important

to have a Real Estate professional who

knows the ins and outs of your community.

The Real Estate professionals at Posh Properties, are experts

in the Delray and Palm Beach County markets.

Compared to the national and global brand companies,

Jerilyn focuses her boutique real estate firm, Posh Properties, on

exclusively offering a personal touch with professional Realtors

that know the local markets. Many consider a “boutique” firm

to cater to the high end market, or possibly too small to break

into the competitive real estate market. In reality, boutique real

estate firms are extremely specialized businesses with a culture

centered on customer service and professionalism. At Posh Prop-

Some of our family of agents: L-R, back row: Angela Wert, Kirsten Smith, Holli Brisson, Samantha Johnsen, Jim Wrona, Nicole Davis,

Lena Pronuza, Anthony Aliberti, Andrew Sassen, (In-House- First Trust Mortgage), Skyy Daley, Jaime Smith, Zaida Pena, Lea Black.

Front Row: Jerilyn Walter, Amanda Ennis, Beverly Mandel, JJ Cordano, Christina Brackley and Emily Gurvitch

78 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Ever present, Jerilyn Walter, owner/broker, loves the

connection she has with all the agents. “our offices are always

bustling and it’s exciting to be around so many professionals”

Kirsten Smith and Emily Gurvitch take time to

collaborate for the benefit of the customer

erties, you can expect above average representation in any transaction

from a condominium to a waterfront estate. You can rest

assured knowing that not only your Realtor, but the Broker and

the entire office is working to assist you through a smooth and

skilled transaction.

Boutique firms offer the same Multiple Listing Service (MLS) representation

as larger companies. In fact “The competency of a business

is now measured by the company leadership, its agents, and the

technology the company has invested in.” Posh Properties has a full

time Social Media consultant, tech support, state of the art digital

document service and licensed, educated management team.

“With a hands-on approach I provide our agents with the educational

and practical experience, keeping them fully engaged in the

business of real estate, and the market,” said Jerilyn. “We have accountability

in our office. Our agents support one another and are

happy to make sure everyone’s customer is treated with the respect

and appreciation they deserve.”

“For over 10 years, I was a successful Real Estate agent working

for national and global brands, where I was just a number. My

customers were also considered just a number. In many cases the

managing broker ignored issues that directly affected the transaction.

Frustrated, I opened Posh Properties 6 years ago, along with

a new attitude; build relationships, know the market, and put your

customer first. Florida will always be a great market, real estate

will always be a great investment, and Posh Properties will always

evolve with technology and the marketplace. These are just some of

the reasons why so many of the area agents are looking to join our

firm,” added Jerilyn.

Jim Wrona, who has been in real estate since 1997, says he enjoys

working at Posh Properties because of the “camaraderie.” “We are

the local agents working for a boutique office with a lot of deep

reach into the community. Finding the perfect home for our customers

is all about having patience and education. We listen to find

out what their needs are so we can best serve them,” he said.

Lea Black, a 13-year real estate professional, also enjoys the

teamwork atmosphere.

“What I like about working at Posh Properties is the other agents

that I work alongside are professionals that have experience and it

is very much a team effort. We offer a more personal experience in

a boutique office,” she said.

Realtor Emily Gurvitch says Posh Properties offers an atmosphere

of “support, encouragement and motivation. We are really connected

with the locals being in the downtown offices. Posh Properties is

more of a family atmosphere rather than a work environment.”

Realtor Kirsten Smith, who has been in real estate for 14 years,

said, “I have built my practice over several years as my own residential

entity within brokerages with few agents and that were

heavily focused on investments and multifamily. I enjoyed that

side of the business, however, I had a strong desire to participate

in a more agent-centric environment where I had other agents to

bounce ideas off of and collaborate with. I’ve known Jerilyn for

many years and always admired her work ethic, and commitment

to the local communities. It was a natural fit to bring my homegrown

practice to Posh. Jerilyn provides a professional, supplemental

brokerage with ample support for her agents thus providing

the perfect setting to grow your own business, succeed and

really get involved in the local markets. Jerilyn is dedicated to her

agents and her community. She thrives off of our successes and is

also there to meet any of our challenges. Posh has such a strong

local presence and commitment to provide the best real estate

services. I’m thrilled to have joined the team.”

Posh Properties’ 36 knowledgeable agents can be seen around

town showing properties, giving back to a charitable organization,

or at a local open house. They contribute to many local causes

including the Chris Evert Foundation, local animal rescue efforts,

and food distribution and adopting families for the holidays. “Posh

Properties agents strongly believe in giving back to the communities

that give so much to us.”

Posh Properties recently opened a second office in Boynton Beach

at 100 South Federal Hwy, and have plans for additional offices.

Stop by Posh Properties and get that personal real estate experience

unlike any other. There is always an agent on duty to assist you

with your real estate needs!

Tipsy SalonBar & Spa

Get Pampered

While Drinking Wine

By Nicol jenkins | Photos by melissa korman

Walking through the doors, you may

not know at first if it’s a bar or a salon.

Greeted with a glass of white or red wine and a choice of pampering

services, customers quickly find out that it is both- a

bar and a salon.

Tipsy SalonBar, which recently opened in Delray Beach, offers the

best of both worlds - a wine bar inside of a salon. At the location,

customers can get pampered by getting their hair, eyelashes, nails or

toes done, while at the same time unwind with a glass of wine.

Tipsy SalonBar provides a wide variety of services including:

hair color, style, manicure, pedicure, eyelash extensions, Keratin

treatments, hair cut, blow dry, waxing, in addition to Botox and

Coolsculpting from a medical physician and much more!

The owners saw a need for a full service spa and salon with a

relaxing bar atmosphere - all under one roof.

“I noticed that there were not many salons that offered every service

at one location. Customers would get their hair done at one

place and then have to travel to a different location for their nails.

Sometimes a husband or boyfriend would be waiting for their significant

other and not enjoy the service. At Tipsy SalonBar, we offer

every service at one location. The men can have a glass of wine

while the wife or girlfriend can get their hair done, or they can both

get a pedicure at the same time and enjoy a drink,” said Tin Nguyen,

Manager at Tipsy SalonBar.

80 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Although they just opened, locals and visitors are really enjoying

the concept.

“Customers will come in for the first time and walk through and

ask is that a bar or a salon. Not many people are offering a salon

with a bar. The first time when customers walk through the door,

we offer them a drink and a service and make sure they are happy,”

said Tin. “We are just one block North of Atlantic Avenue and a perfect

spot to relax before a night out on the Ave.”

Tipsy SalonBar focuses on making sure their customers are

treated like royalty. The moment you walk through the door, a

friendly staff member offers you a glass of red or white wine. The

expert stylists and nail technicians take the time to know what each

of their customers are looking for and customize the pampering

service for each individual. They offer later hours for the busy hard

working professional so they can come in after work.

“We want all of our customers to have a relaxing experience. We

recommend they make an appointment to make sure that everyone

who walks through the door has a good amount of time to relax. We

don’t want to rush anyone,” said Tin.

Tipsy SalonBar offers color correction, extensions, Keratin treatments,

Balayage, Ombre, blow dry and haircut, along with top quality

products such as Kevin Murphy.

“We have a very modern looking salon, and we like to have fun

here. We offer our clients a glass of wine when they are getting services

done. Our staff is laid back and fun but take good care of our

customers. Our real goal is for clients to have a luxurious experience

and have fun while they are doing it,” said expert hair stylist

Marissa Tankersley, “If you are on the Avenue and about to go out

with friends, come here and let us do your hair and nails.”

Expert hair stylist and colorist Mark King said Tipsy SalonBar

is such a unique concept because “we have a bar, and people come

to the Avenue to drink and eat and have a good time. This concept

works best in this area better than any other area because our customers

are here to celebrate every night,” he said. “My clients like to

come in, have a glass of wine and relax. They come here to unwind.”

Hannah Nguyen, a nail technician at Tipsy SalonBar, says the location

offers everything from manicures, pedicures, gel, NexGen, acrylics

and more! She gets to know all of her clients and their families.

“We want our clients to feel more like family when they come

here instead of just customers. We offer a friendly and welcoming

atmosphere. The service here is always great. When our clients

walk out of here, they have to be happy,” said Hannah. “Customer

service is important. Clients say we are so friendly here. We don’t

want the customer to come in and feel like we just need to get the

job done and go. We don’t rush customers in and out.”

“It’s rewarding to see my clients come in and then see them

happy after they get their hair and nails done and look and turn

out beautiful. We keep the prices reasonable for everyone coming

here,” said Tin.

“Every single person here is incredibly amazing in every sense:

kind, caring, talented and sweet. I came in today, totally last minute...

the day before my best friend’s wedding and I’m the maid

of honor so I need to look my best! Tipsy SalonBar accommodated

me right away as a walk-in; I did not have an appointment. I

was incredibly grateful! Not only did they accommodate me, they

treated me like royalty! There is major talent here for both hair

and nails. I highly recommend Tipsy SalonBar for all your hair and

nail needs! Oh, you get a glass of wine or champagne too!” said

one happy customer.

“Absolutely love this place! The staff is awesome and they stand

by their word. Thank you guys for providing me with a personalized

experience,” said another customer.

Make your appointment today at Tipsy SalonBar! For the New

Year during the month of January, they will be offering 20% off the

first time visit for a new client!

Assess For The Best

By diane feen | Photos by melissa korman

They say knowledge is power. But it’s not just for

power sake alone. It’s for creating and maintaining

a healthy lifestyle and a healthy physical body that

functions at its maximum capacity.

Giovanni instructing PurLife member Shania Wizov through a full body exercise

Sure, it’s nice to look good, but it’s even more important to

make sure your exercise regime is one that complements your

lifestyle and body type, not causes injury or pain.

That’s why Purlife introduced a state-of-the-art Fitness Assessment

tool to measure exactly what your body needs to function at

its highest capacity, while minimizing (or eliminating) injury.

This ranking system is called Functional Movement Screening, or

FMS. It sounds technical, but the actual process is methodical and

diagnostic. It’s been proven to pinpoint and personalize a workout

program to get you active and healthy without injury or pain. Do

you have a knee problem? Shoulder pain or tightness in your hip?

If so the reason might not be what you think.

“We help clients by creating specific exercise programs for them

that help identify imbalances in the body. That is one of the reasons

people suffer injuries or pain. As you go through the screening process

(FMS) we assess what the client does well and what they have

trouble doing. This allows us to create a program just for them that

strengthens their weak areas, so they can move better and more often

(and maximize their ability to lose weight). You’ll feel and look

great without pain or injury,” said Giovanni Roselli, Regional Director

of Personal Training at Purlife.

FMS has a slogan – Move well – Move often. If you’re not moving,

then your tissues and muscles begin to decline. To go about

your daily life safer, stronger and with more confidence you need

to address areas of weakness.

The FMS screening is an amazing tool that gives the Purlife

Master Trainer the ability to correctly identify what exercises you

need to do to achieve a healthy balance in your body. “If you’re

not doing the right exercise you can injure yourself. If you have

a bad knee the problem might not be your knee, it may be above

or below the joint which would be the foot or hip. We want our

clients to play with their kids or grandchildren without pain. We

train you from head to toe,” said Roselli.

Roselli knows what he is talking about. He was with Equinox

Fitness Clubs for 10 years and served as a Master Instructor and

Tier 4 Coach. He is also a Functional Movement Screen (FMS) Level

2 Master Trainer.

After going through FMS, Giovanni used ViPR to

help correct imbalances and challenge weak links

84 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Giovanni checks and measures for shoulder mobility

Giovanni prepares Shania for the in line lunge screen

Roselli believes in the “movement-based approach,” which means

not getting onto machines just to keep moving, but to train the body

as a unit, not in isolation, focusing on any weak muscles or body parts.

The FMS Assessment is done at the beginning of the program

and is purely diagnostic. You’ll see what you’re struggling with so

the Master Trainer at Purlife can identify what needs to be done

to correct imbalances. He will be able to see how your knee joint,

hip joint and shoulder joint is moving.

The FMS Assessment is done with specific FMS equipment. It

shows which parts of your body don’t function as well as others

(usually due to injury or lack of exercise) and shows what you

need to work on to improve mobility, stability (strength) at all

major joint systems.

It’s easy to sit on the sidelines and avoid injury or pain, but it’s

not the most prudent way to stay healthy. As a matter of fact, it’s a

sure way to a shorten a fulfilling life. As people get older they find

themselves sitting out many exciting activities simply because they

have previous injuries they feel require rest or avoidance.

But if you listen to Master Trainer Mike Katz or Roselli you will

discover that limitations are only that – limitations. They know that

with the proper fitness program you can overcome your limitations

through a specific exercise routine created for you.

To get a proper assessment of your physical strengths and weaknesses

Purlife also has “InBody.” You stand on a device that tells the

trainer about your exact body composition. It measures muscle-fat

ratio, muscles development, visceral fat level (that surround the internal

organs) and other critical body functions.

To help correct these imbalances and focus on total body exercise

they have a ViPR. This tube-like device is strategically created

for flexibility, stability and cardiovascular training. It’s three dimensional

so you can move forward, backward, side to side and rotate.

Functional Training is the newest wave in fitness. “It’s important

to move well so you can function in your day to day life. Just because

you look good does not mean your body works well.”

He’s right. After going through FMS and InBody with Master

Trainer Michael Katz I realized what my body was trying to tell me.

I also realized that to live a pain-free active life I needed to pinpoint

exactly what was weak from prior injuries and how to remedy the

weakness with specific exercises.

Purlife also has a Fit3D wellness assessment tool. It takes a scan

of your body so you can track how your body has changed visually

over time.

As a way of elevating the entire health model Purlife has added

a nutrition certification called Precision Nutrition. Without proper

nutrition the body doesn’t perform to its maximum potential. And

let’s face it, we all want to live well and feel great.

That’s why Purlife is offering an all-inclusive Wellness Journey -

60 For 60 To Get Fit. It encourages behavior changes, nutritional

awareness, improves the quality of movement and helps you stay

consistent with your exercise program. It includes Private Training

Sessions, 60 days of Gym Access and Group Fitness, a Fit3d Scan,

InBody readings and FMS Evaluation. The results will astound you.

Purlife has been so successful in Delray that they are opening a

Boca Raton Purlife in January 2018.

See what everyone is talking about. Get fit – Get Strong – and Get

Going to Purlife.

Delray Dermatology + Cosmetic Center

Discover Comprehensive

Dermatology Care

By nicol jenkins | Photos by melissa korman

Where can you find the best

in a truly comprehensive

Dermatology care? Search no

further than the newly opened

Delray Dermatology + Cosmetic

Center, which offers medical

and cosmetic Dermatology

services all under one roof.

As an experienced and Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr.

Francesca Lewis, MD wanted to open a full service medical

and cosmetic office in the heart of East Delray Beach. “As a

resident of Delray Beach, I felt as though there was a need in East

Delray for a board certified Dermatologist who specializes in all aspects

of Dermatology and provides comprehensive services,” said

Dr. Francesca Lewis. She hopes to become the go-to Dermatologist

in East Delray Beach.

Dr. Lewis is a Florida native, a graduate of Emory University

School of Medicine, and a member of the prestigious Alpha Omega

Alpha medical honor society. She is a Dermatologist certified by the

American Board of Dermatology who specializes in general and

cosmetic Dermatology. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science

from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee and completed

her residency training in Dermatology at the Medical University of

South Carolina. Before relocating back to Florida, Dr. Lewis worked

in a prestigious Dermatology practice in Silicon Valley and gained

extensive experience with laser treatments and cosmetic injectables

at one of the country’s largest cosmetic and laser centers.

She and her husband, a Radiologist at Boca Regional Hospital, their

son Grayson and their Labrador Retriever Bear have made Delray

Beach their permanent home since 2015. She is an affiliate assistant

professor at FAU and on staff at Boca Regional Hospital. She

has donated to many charity organizations, hospitals, and schools

in the area and is on the committee for the Go Pink Luncheon to

benefit breast cancer awareness at Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

“The most important thing we can do for our community is to give

back,” she said, and she makes it a priority to do so.

Delray Dermatology + Cosmetic Center provides a state of the

art, brand new medical office focused on patient care and comfort.

Technology is incorporated throughout the office from the iPad kiosks

in the waiting room for patients to complete their medical his-

tory, choose their preferred pharmacy and update their contact information,

to the TVs in every exam room showcasing cutting edge

procedures and the most up to date medical information. There is

attention to detail throughout the office with an emphasis on patient

comfort. A coffee bar graces the main lobby, the furnishings

are modern and comfortable, and there is even a private lounge for

patients who are receiving cosmetic procedures.

Dr. Lewis puts an emphasis on education. She admits that she

sees fewer patients a day than many of her Dermatology colleagues

because she enjoys educating patients on their condition, the pros

and cons of various treatments, and developing an individualized

treatment plan with every patient. Delray Dermatology houses a

spectacular conference room for monthly educational seminars

and events. They host monthly ‘Lunch & Learn’ seminars, on topics

ranging from skin cancer to cosmeceutical products. On January

23rd, they are hosting their next ‘Lunch & Learn’ from 12-1pm on

the topic of acne: causes and cutting-edge acne treatments. They

also plan on quarterly VIP events for their patients (the first of

which will be on January 11th from 5-7pm, see their Facebook page

for more details), and regular evening events to learn more about

their cosmetic offerings.

The Delray Beach based center keeps medical Dermatology at its

core, focusing on skin cancer, acne, benign moles and growths, eczema,

psoriasis, rosacea, hair loss and more. Especially in our sunny

South Florida climate, Dr. Lewis urges her patients to get their

skin checked for cancer at least once a year. “Twenty percent of the

population will get skin cancer in their lifetime. We commonly find

skin cancers even in 20 to 30 year-olds, although they are more

common to develop later in life. I urge patients to come in as soon

as possible if they notice a lesion that is new, growing, changing or

bleeding,” said Dr. Lewis. Make sure when choosing a Dermatologist

that you look for a medical doctor that is certified by the American

Board of Dermatology and is a Fellow of the American Academy

of Dermatology to make sure they have the proper credentials.

“I went into Dermatology because it is incredibly rewarding to

make an impact on someone’s quality of life by treating their rosacea

or acne or psoriasis, or by diagnosing a melanoma in its earliest

stages, or making someone feel more confident about themselves

when they look in the mirror with natural appearing cosmetic procedures.

I love what I do every day and the patients I get to build

relationships with,” she said. She enjoys seeing patients of all ages

as well, including children.

While with their roots still in medical Dermatology, they provide

cosmetic services only that have a proven benefit including laser

treatments, Botox and Dysport wrinkle relaxing injections, dermal

fillers like Juvederm to help with fine lines and creases, microneedling

for collagen stimulation, Platelet Rich Plasma treatments, OxyGeneo

SuperFacials and much more! The lasers they have are used

to treat redness, brown spots, wrinkles, and acne scars. Dr. Lewis

explains that she is very careful when evaluating and selecting new

devices for the office to make sure that efficacy of the device is foremost

and patient comfort and satisfaction is paramount. Dr. Lewis

takes an individualized approach to correcting the signs of aging

called Complete Correction because not every patient is the same

and needs the same treatment. She evaluates and treats the entire

spectrum of aging symptoms of the skin by addressing color imperfections,

creases and contours of the face with a multi-faceted approach

incorporating a variety of the above treatments and medical

grade skincare regimens. She developed her own medical grade

skin care line called Delray Skin that is available in the office and

will soon be available online through their website delrayskin.com.

Her patients agree that Dr. Lewis is superb and recommend Delray

Dermatology + Cosmetic Center for all your Dermatology needs.

“Dr. Lewis is the kindest. She takes the time to listen to your

concerns. I left afterward not feeling rushed but confident that my

health was in good hands. Her staff were also very personable and

the new office looks great! I highly recommend,” said one patient.

“I have had psoriasis for years and never have been able to get it

under control until I found Dr. Lewis. She spent so much time with

me and came up with a plan. Now I’m almost completely better,”

said another patient.

Beach Chamber of Commerce grand opening and ribbon cutting

ceremony on January 18th from 5-6:30pm.

How to Stop Drinking

Get Healthy

See a Doctor

First, make the decision to quit and the commitment to doing

whatever it’ll take. Then get some help from an expert physician

skilled with addiction and keep them on your team. Especially if

your drinking has been regular and heavy, withdrawal should be

medically supervised. A brief stint in de-tox can be a good start

toward a better life.

Addiction is Curable

There are strategies available using a therapist like myself to rid

ourselves of addiction, and eventually walk down the street without

feeling sick, broken, or not-good-enough or scared that one

next wrong move’s going to kill you.

Will Power Sucks

Thinking you’ll be stronger than the call of old habits just by

force of will is a fantasy. You cannot continue to live the same ways,

frequent the same places, hang out with the same people and structure

your time the same. If you show up in a bar around happy hour,

you’re going to drink

Doing Whatever it Takes

Making and keeping commitments is key to regaining self-management.

Under the direction of an expert addictions therapist and

supportive groups like AA, it is possible to remove the power from

urges and triggers that have tipped the scales toward self-destruction.

You may experience these impulses for the rest of your life,

but you’ll grow wise enough to move past them without danger and

without acting on them.

1. Remove alcohol and any other mood altering substances from

your diet and surroundings immediately. Warn your spouse or

roommate that these supplies are no longer welcome.

2. Get up before 6AM (or earlier) daily and make physical aerobic

exercise your first priority. Brisk walking, running, biking, swimming,

etc will bathe your brain in healing chemistry and supply motivation

you’ll need all day.

3. Sharpen your diet. Eat small meals 6 times daily. Drop the

carbs and sugar. Use a professional nutritionist.

Roots of Addiction and the Real Costs

4. Commit to honest self-inquiry with a therapist. Familiarize

yourself with thinking distortions and destructive behavioral patterns

that have allowed your emotions to control you. Determine

why you’ve lost your way.

5. Attend a 12 Step meeting every day. Speak up. Let yourself be

known in the room. Make the coffee and hand it out when it’s your

turn. Introduce yourself. Often.

6. Get a 12 Step sponsor with the time, motivation and inclination

to hold you accountable for meetings and step work.

Practice Seeing the World As it Is

7. Make “structural changes” such as travel schedule alterations

and time commitments to work your recovery as THE most important

project. Avoiding family? Are you a workaholic? Is your job killing

you? Does your marriage suck?

8. Meditate or pray mindfully at dawn to raise your awareness of

urges and triggers. Build an awareness of your spiritual potential.

Block time to “just sit” quietly for 10 minutes per day, every day. A

chair is fine.

You Could Fail and Die

There can be points in our lives beyond which we cannot, without

more restrictive care, return from a dangerous addiction. Our

bodies grow accustomed and may refuse to cooperate with the

most robust plan. People die of alcoholism and it’s related illnesses

daily. If you feel you might need a higher level of care, including

hospitalization, don’t hesitate to consult me.

If you need assistance with your recovery, I’m available as an

expert addiction psychotherapist and sober coach based in Delray

Beach, FL. I work by phone and office visits. Contact me here. or call

Wеddіng Trеndѕ

5By Paula AngerFor 2018

It’s that time of year again and

each year wе discover a ѕhіft іn

wеddіng trеndѕ - ѕоmеtіmеѕ a

ѕubtlе change in whats “in style”

from the previous year, оthеr

times іt is a соmрlеtе 360.

One of the beauties about weddings is that aesthetically the

industry is always in constant change and nеvеr gets boring

since thеrе аrе so mаnу new аnd different options to consider.

2018 is going to be a уеаr of іnnоvаtіоn аnd еxреrіmеntаtіоn

fоr couples. As thе wеddіng season аррrоасhеѕ, wе gіvе you a

sneak peak of what 2018 is going to be all about!

1. Black Accents

We have been seeing lots of blush, peach and overall pastel color

trends in the last few years which are subtle and give a romantic

wedding feel. But this year, black is the new accent color; from bridal

accessories and outfits to wedding decor, this year’s bride and

groom will make a statement with this innovative trend. Being bold

is in, but if this trend doesn’t fit your personality than you can opt

out or simply use black subtly throughout your wedding with caution.

You can always mix black with other “not so dramatic” colors

for the perfect balance.

2. Mismatched Bridesmaids Dresses

Wearing the same type of dress and color is pretty much out of

the equation this year for bridesmaids. Brіdеѕmаіdѕ want to make

a statement in 2018 as well and they can choose a dress and color

hue that matches their style. Even though brides will give their

bridesmaids some freedom this year, don’t forget to also give them

some guidelines. In the end, the whole wedding has to be cohesive

and bridesmaids need to keep this in mind when picking their outfit.

If you want to play it safe, provide your bridesmaids with different

color hues they can choose from.

3. Drip and Geometric Wedding Cakes

Drips and geometric shaped cake decor are all in for 2018; from

gold and black to any color that will suit your wedding theme. No

matter the size of your cake, 1 tier, 2 tiers or 3+ tiers, cakes will be

another wedding “wow factor” that your guests will be talking about.

4. Different Wedding Settings

Wedding venues are always a great option, but lately, other settings

such as industrial spaces are being considered by couples who

want something “out of the box.” There are tons of settings you can

choose from depending on the theme of the wedding; from barns

and beaches to parks and museums. Remember you can always get

creative and transform virtually any space with lighting and decor.

5. Transparent Elements

From see-through acrylic tables, to see-through wedding archs,

this style is becoming stronger and stronger. Couples can add

glowing elements, LEDs, and other decor such as flowers to their

see-through elements for that “new edge” wedding feel.

Always remember that trends are trends, and the most important

thing is that the couple feels confident and excited about these new

things, if they choose to. If you want to add some of the latest trends

to your wedding, choose one or two that fit your personality, fit the

wedding feel you are going for, and that you both identify with.

Great Places

to Visit in

the UK,

After London

If you’re planning a trip to the

UK, chances are you’re heading

to London, but maybe no further.

The buzzing metropolis draws millions of visitors every year,

and many people feel it offers all they could want. But the UK

is packed with other amazing places beyond London, each

unique in some special way, so make sure you don’t miss out. Here

are eight highlights around the country, for starters:

1. Elegant Bath: The graceful, little city of bath makes a refreshing

antidote to London. Take a stroll around the famous Royal

Crescent, visit the historic Roman Baths and sip the curative

spring water in the elegant, old Pump Room. You can do your gift

shopping in the tiny stalls that adorn the river bridge. Stay until

nightfall and witness the magical floodlights - there’s a fairy-tale

element to Bath.

2. The Cotswolds: A little further north, you’ll encounter the

rolling farmland of the Cotswolds, where the quaint, little stone

cottages and Norman churches will take you back through the

centuries. Stop off in a sleepy, old village, such as Bibury, and walk

around the amazingly preserved Roman villa near Chedworth.

You’ll find plenty of classy eating places and craft shops in this

charming, “olde worlde” region.

3. The Welsh mining valleys: There’s a harsh side to British

history alongside the fairy-tale one, and you’ll feel it in the old










92 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

mining valleys of south Wales. Drive over the stark mountains and

view the rows of workers’ cottages, now painted in bright colours.

Take the elevator down The Big Pit and learn how tough life used

to be for the coal-miners. Then you could step even further back

through history with a roam around Caerphilly Castle - but mind

those spooky, spiral staircases.

4. Vibrant Manchester: Visit the beating heart of the north

of England. You’ll feel the buzz of Manchester life as soon as you

arrive. Take a tram ride around town and check out the latest

events at the many theatres and concert halls. You’ll find plenty of

stand-up comedy and other fun shows in Manchester, and plenty

of sport, too, as well as top-notch culture.

5. The Lake District: Around the coastline from Manchester,

you’ll find the romantic, hidden world of The Lake District.

Climb the dramatic mountains and take a boat trip around beautiful

Lake Windermere, the largest of the sixteen gleaming waters.

Then you can ride through the magical scenery on a splendid, vintage

steam train.

6. Historic Edinburgh: Venture over the rugged border of

Scotland - scene of many a historic battle - and head north to Edinburgh

for another great experience. With the imposing castle on

its great rock and bagpipe music in the air, you will know you’ve

arrived. How about donning a kilt and joining in a Scottish dance

reel? You’d certainly deserve a stick of delicious “Edinburgh Rock”

after that.

7. The wild Outer Hebrides: These remote Scottish islands

offer an unspoiled beauty that’s second to none. It’s strange to

think that President Trump’s mother grew up on one of them -

the Isle of Lewis, far away from urban life and high society. Take

a boat trip to the tiny island of Staffa and see the puffins nesting

on the clifftops.

8. York and the Yorkshire Dales: As you head back south

to London, drop in on the ancient city of York. Step inside the resplendent

York Minster, browse the little shops in the old Shambles

district, then join an after-dark ghost-walk around the twisty,

cobbled streets. Take a drive over Yorkshire’s wild moors and

pretty dales, and make sure you try all the local cakes, pies and

ales on your way through.

There are plenty more special places to see while you’re over in

Britain, not just in these parts but across the water in Ireland, too.

Browse the sightseeing websites and ask fellow travelers for their

recommendations. There’s something for everyone in the UK.

Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative

Delray’s Sister Visits for the Holidays


Our Sister City of Miyazu, Japan came to visit us this past

December, commemorating the 40th anniversary of our

international partnership. The enthusiastic group of five, led by

Mayor Shoji Inoue, enjoyed a week of warm greetings and sunshine.

For those that are not familiar with the term, a Sister City relationship

is a broad based, officially approved, long-term partnership

between two communities in two countries. Sister

City partnerships have the potential to carry out the widest possible

diversity of activities of any international program, including every

type of municipal, business, professional, educational and cultural

exchange or project. Sister City programs are also unique in that

they inherently involve the three main sectors in the community:

local government, business, and a wide variety of citizen volunteers.

Sister City of Delray Beach was created by the city commission

in April, 1977 for the purpose of establishing a Sister City affiliation

with Miyazu, Japan. In 1999, Sister Cities of Delray Beach

added a partnership link with Moshi, Tanzania, East Africa. In

2015 Delray became Sister Cities with Pesaro, Italy and then in

2017, Aquin, Haiti. Sister Cities of Delray Beach promotes friendship

and understanding between the citizens of Delray Beach,

Florida and each of our Sister Cities around the world by encouraging

cultural, youth, athletic and economic exchanges.

“2017 marks the 40th anniversary of the sister city relationship

between Delray Beach and Miyazu, Japan. The relationship

began to honor George Morikami, who was born in Miyazu. He

lived in Delray Beach and donated the land where the Morikami

Museum and Japanese Gardens are located. We are honored that

his grandnephew, Kazuaki Ida, visited Delray Beach along with

Mayor Shoji Inoue of Miyazu,”says David Schmidt, President of

Delray Beach Sister Cities.

The Miyazu contingent spent 4 days touring the area and exploring

the city. The group was given a golf cart tour of town

by the Delray Beach Marketing Cooperative, highlighting all the

different facets of Delray. They discussed economic development

with local businesses at the Chamber of Commerce, met

with Mayor Cary Glickstein, visited the Cornell Museum for a reception

with city leaders, ate meals at local restaurants, and of

course, visited the Morikami Museum and Gardens. The group

enjoyed themselves, and looks forward to the next time Delray

Beach visits them.

98 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

egulars | city people

Mother Theresa Of Delray

Wine bottles lined a side

table at Carol Eaton’s house

in Delray Beach. The holiday

décor was all pervasive

and the previous nights’

festivities were still in the air.

“We just had our holiday party for the Ambassadors

of the Chamber of Commerce. Everyone brought

something, and I made four dishes,” said Eaton, who

is as much a part of Delray’s lore as its lush sunsets.

To know Eaton is to know that she is spread over Delray Beach

like a thin film of tissue paper. Her commitment to Delray Beach and

(its inhabitants) is huge and her heart is wide open to those in need.

You could say she is like a fairy Godmother spreading golden dust

over different organizations and causes. Her volunteer imprint is

large, and the results are spectacular. As Eaton puts it, “Opening

your heart to someone in the smallest way can make a big impact

on someone’s day!”

In Eaton’s case it’s not just a day that she impacts, it’s people’s

lives. You can see it in the organizations that are supported by the

grants she writes for the Delray Elks Lodge #1770. As her role of

Treasurer and CFO, Eaton tapped into the Elks National Foundation

Grants and now disperses them to local charities. She has written

24 grants and helped to bring goodwill and funds to places like Boys

& Girls Club, Miracle League, Caring Kitchen, The Milagro Center,

AVDA and others.

But that’s only part of Eaton’s fairy dusting efforts. She is currently

the incoming Chair of the Delray Chamber Ambassadors that

supports (and celebrates) new businesses. Eaton is also incoming

Chair of the Delray Beach Initiative, a volunteer community organization

that raises money to enhance the lives of local children.

To say that Eaton’s life is made up of good deeds would be an understatement.

She glows when the phone rings with people asking

for money for various causes, and she gets excited with the endless

possibilities that land at her feet. “I believe each of us should have a

goal of doing whatever is possible to make a difference in the lives

of people who are less fortunate.”

Eaton practices what she preaches.

That volunteer spirit began early in Eaton’s Delray life. She was

a mother and full-time employee of a jewelry company when she

started volunteering for the Pineapple Grove Mainstreet Program.

In that capacity Eaton did fundraising for the Christmas Parade

float, Share our Strength and Taste of the Grove. She also volunteered

for the first Brew Festival and helped paint the 100 block in

pastel hues with 50 other do-gooders.

“Volunteering got into my blood immediately. I met so many

people and enjoyed the feeling of camaraderie working together toward

a common goal. You become part of a big happy family.”

When it comes to happy families Eaton has this mile-marker aced

in spades as well. Her 18-year-old daughter Nikki is a student at

Florida Gulf Coast University and her husband Jim retired from the

Post Office but keeps busy like his wife. “Moving to Delray was the

best move I ever made beside marrying my wife. She is the most

caring, loving person I’ve ever met.”

Jim isn’t the only one who sings Eaton’s praises in exalted soprano

range. “Anything Carol supports she puts passion, energy and

ingenuity into, which is why she is appreciated by so many locals. I

am grateful to have Carol as a very active member of the Chamber,

engaged in our community, a volunteer, a neighbor and a friend,”

said Kim Bentkover, Membership Director of the Delray Chamber.

Eaton’s past volunteer activities include being on the PTA of her

daughter’s school (S.D. Spady Elementary) and spearheading programs

like the Business Banner, Adopt-A-Class and Matching Gifts.

From 2005 to 2014 she volunteered for the Mark Gerretson Memorial

Fishing tournament as Program Advertisement and Sponsor

Chair. She increased profits for the fishing tournament by 600

percent, which allowed them to use the funds to help other local

charitable causes.

In a Delray Police Department Community Service Commendation,

Chief Joseph Schroeder said the funds Eaton raised not only helped

their Holiday Toy Drive, but college scholarships, Cops Literary Program,

Annual Easter Egg Hunt, Karate program, Delray Rocks Football

Team and the 1st Annual Kids and Cops Summer Baseball Camp.

“What goes unnoticed is your effort. You work tirelessly on the

fishing tournament and countless hours of volunteer work to raise

funds to ensure its success. That directly impacts the money we can

give back to the community. You do not look for notoriety or recognition

– you do this because you care about your community and its

future,” said Chief Schroeder in 2007.

Not much has changed since then. Last month pictures of Eaton

surfaced on Facebook with her and Delray Beach Elks members

packing goodies for the troops for their Delray’s Project Holiday.

She also took part in delivering gifts and bikes to the Caridad Center

with the Delray Beach Elks Club. Later in the week Eaton took

part in the Delray Police “Heroes and Helpers” event that brought

100 children to Target for Christmas gifts.

“The Elks gave $2,500 towards supporting ‘Heroes and Helpers.’ I

went to Target to watch 100 children being escorted by police officers

into the store to buy their Christmas gifts! Gives me goose bumps!!”

Much of what Eaton does in the community goes unnoticed by the

public but not by those who know her. “Carol is a great friend of the

Chamber and our community. You can always count on her to help

whenever and wherever it’s needed. She is one in a million!” Said

Patty Reed, Program Director for the Delray Chamber of Commerce.

That is one reason she received the Ken Ellingsworth Community

Service Award for 2013-2014.

The awards and glowing letters may be significant in Eaton’s file

folders, but out in the world she is a giant among men (or women).

You could say those in her path are blessed by an angel.

Stout Braised Short Rib with Garlic Mashed potatoes and Broccolini

Banyan Restaurant & Bar

Culinary Excellence

By diane feen | Photos by Banyan’s Restaurant

The large majestic Banyan Tree that frames the parameters of

Banyan Restaurant & Bar has a long history – 155 years to be

exact. Its lore is one of stoic permanence meaning “Tree of Life.”

It is with this steady life-line and enthusiasm that owners Joseph

LoRe and Miles Moriarty celebrated the first anniversary

of their illustrious Pineapple Grove restaurant and bar. From

the outside it might look like a sleepy spot but from the inside it’s

anything but.

The interior is classic and classy with black and white patterned

walls, comfy red banquettes and Baroque translucent chairs. The

crystal chandeliers and colorful lighting make it a serene space

with a Joie de Vivre that celebrates life, love and superb cuisine.

Their food is seasonal and picked discerningly as if it were going

into the kitchen of royalty.

“We didn’t want to be like all the other restaurants. We wanted to

simplify our menu and offer only the freshest ingredients. There is

no freezer here,” said Moriarty, who comes from a celebrated restaurant

family (they owned Minetta Tavern in New York).

Owners LoRe and Moriarty have perfected the art of fine din-

Soy Glazed Salmon with sticky rice patties and Bok Choy

118 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Brussels Sprouts glazed in a glazed ginger soy reduction with pancetta

Sautéed Mushrooms cooked in rosemary, butter, olive oil, and garlic confit

ing. They also introduced a new menu that reflects the discerning

palate of their guests. Chef James has pulled out all the stops with

dishes that are explosive in taste with a gentility of excellence.

Their small plates are large in taste with a swoon factor that is

explosive. Take the Brussels Sprouts for example. Chef James has

created a masterpiece by adding a glazed ginger soy reduction and

pancetta. These are not your mother’s Brussels Sprouts – they are

made from the culinary Gods. The taste will have you savoring the

moment and wondering, “how did they do this?”

The answer is clearly that perfection is something the owners, the

chef and two sous-chefs have collectively invented to wow diners. It

seems to be working. “I come to Banyan five or six nights a week because

the vibe is friendly, and the food is excellent. I really like the

Salmon entrée, Chicken Liver Toast and Charred Vegetables (with

Cauliflower Puree). I always get one of Rob’s signature drinks – especially

“The Nice to Noyaux,” said Charles, a loyal Banyan regular.

The philosophy that the customer dictates what is served has been

their motto since they opened their doors a year ago. That is why

Banyan Restaurant & Bar continues to grow in popularity and philanthropy.

They recently catered an event at Art Basel in Wynwood

for the Copperbridge Foundation, are a sponsor for the Delray Open

and the Delray Chamber of Commerce Gala.

Because of dishes like the Stout Braised Short Rib with Garlic

Mashed potatoes and Broccolini, and the Bistro Filet (with mushroom

bordelaise) Banyan has been hosting rehearsal dinners, office parties

and milestone events for guests. The results have been spectacular.

“We had five people here from New York last week. They ordered

everything on the menu and ate it all. They thought it was wonderful,”

said LoRe, who with Moriarty, are a steady presence in the restaurant.

Both inherited divine recipes that have been passed down

from generations and are now star players on the menu.

Their Soy Glazed Salmon with sticky rice patties and Bok Choy

is amazing. The taste and moist texture of this dish speaks volumes

about the quality of the food and the precision of its creator.

These are not just good dishes, they are great dishes with flavor

that is boundless.

They continue the tradition of their Banyan Burger made with

Truffle Moliterno Cheese, Seared Foi Gras, Arugula and White Truffle

Aioli on a Brioche bun with fresh cut Fries (decadence abounds

here). They also have daily fish and pasta specials – such as Wild

Boar Ragu served over Pappardelle Pasta or Orecchiette with Andouille

Sausage and Mussels in a white wine sauce.

Their Sautéed Mushrooms are legendary - cooked in rosemary

butter, olive oil, garlic confit - with Maitake, Beech and Baby Portobello

Mushrooms. Also a favorite – The Lamb Francis, made with

mashed cauliflower and potato wedges.

Though the food is superb (and consistent) the intimate environment

and upbeat décor score points from everyone. LoRe and

Moriarty carefully planned every detail of the restaurant to refine

its presence among giants (in the area). The bar is lit with colorful

LED lights, the ceiling with framed mirrors and the outdoor seating

under the Banyan tree is romantic and enchanting.

The Bar has also become a “Cheers” point of contact. It’s a friendly

place with colorful persona, USB ports under the bar, hooks to

hang purses, and bartenders who are adept at perfecting drinks to

match your meal and personal preference. The new ‘Can You Fig It’

cocktail (with Fig-infused Bourbon, Turbinado, and Black Walnut

bitters) will leave you with an “all is well” contentment.

Other seasonal cocktails include Roseberry (Cranberry infused

Vodka, apple cider, rosemary syrup, lemon juice and white balsamic)

and ‘Only the FEW Breakfast Gin’ (tea Infused Gin, lemon, honey,

lemon bitters with a splash of tonic). They also have an extensive

selection of local tap and bottle beers, wine and spirits. “We’ve taken

our signature cocktails to another level,” said Moriarty.

Happy Hour is every day from 4pm to 7pm at the Bar (and community

table) with appetizers, tap beers, wine and well drinks at a

discount. Their Late-Night Menu is perfect for night owls with assorted

savory flatbreads. There’s lunch everyday under the Banyan

Tree (or inside) with live music Wednesday, Thursday, and most

Saturday nights.

Banyan Restaurant & Bar is a happy place that has perfected its

menu, it’s ambience and its desire to be the best in the neighborhood.

The people and décor will charm you and the food will have

you dreaming from the afterglow. Their recipe for success lies in

their desire to please everyone who enters.

We think they have succeeded.

10 Good Luck

Foods For 2018

Every New Year, people around the world eat specific foods to summon

good luck for the next 365 days. While some traditions call for noodles

and others call for fruit, all the edibles connote forward movement,

prosperity and health. Whether you’re superstitious or not, you may

find a favorite in this list of celebratory foods. And if no luck comes your

way, at least you’ll go into the new year with a full belly.

Long Noodles

In Asian countries, it’s customary to eat

long noodles, to signify longevity, on New

Year’s Day. Since the noodles are never to

be broken or shortened during the cooking

process, the typical preparation for “Long-

Life Noodles” is a stir-fry.


Some countries, like Cuba, Spain, Portugal,

Hungary and Austria, pigs symbolize

progress. Some say it’s because these

animals never move backward, while

others believe it’s in their feeding habits

(they push their snouts forward along the

ground when rooting for food).

Round Fruits

Though the number of pieces varies by

region, eating any round fruit is a common

New Year’s tradition. In the Philippines,

the custom calls for 13, considered a lucky

number; in Europe and the U.S., it calls for

12, which represents the months in a year.

Whole Fish

Chinese cuisine experts say the Chinese

word for “fish” sounds like the word for

“abundance,” one of the many reasons fish

has become a go-to good luck food. Also it’s

important for the fish be served with the

head and tail intact to ensure a good year,

from start to finish.


Pomegranates represent good luck in

Turkey for many reasons: Their red color,

which represents the human heart, denotes

life and fertility; their medicinal

properties represent health; and their

abundant, round seeds represent prosperity

— all things everyone hopes for in any

fresh start.


From the coastal American South to Europe,

people eat green leafy veggies — including

kale, collards and cabbage — on

New Year’s Day because of their color and

appearance, which resembles paper money.

Belief has it, the more you eat, the more

prosperous you’ll be (and healthier, too).


A popular New Year’s meal in Italy is

cotechino con lenticchie (green lentils with

sausage) because of the legume’s greenish

color and coin-like appearance. Deeper into

the myth: When cooked, lentils plump with

water, symbolizing growing wealth. Lentils

are also considered good luck in Hungary,

where they’re preferred in a soup.

Pickled Herring

In Germany, Poland and Scandinavia, it’s

believed that eating herring at the stroke

of midnight will ensure a year of bounty

— as herring are in abundance throughout

Western Europe. Also, their silvery color

resembles that of coins, a good omen for

future fortune.

Black-eyed Peas

Considered good luck due to their pennylike

appearance and abundance, these peas,

enjoyed in the southern United States, are

traditionally served in a dish called hoppin’

John. On the day after New Year’s Day,

leftover “hoppin’ John” becomes “skippin’

Jenny,” meant to demonstrate frugality and

promote prosperity in the new year.


A favorite throughout the year, cornbread

is especially venerated as a New Year’s treat

in the southern United States. Why? Its color

resembles that of gold. To ensure extra luck,

some people add extra corn kernels, which

are emblematic of golden nuggets.

misc | ask the petxpert

BY Bill Piechocki and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM

Are our Pets in Danger

From This Toxic Threat?

We are constantly asked by our clients for reasons why their

well-cared pets suddenly get sick, with vomiting and diarrhea

being primary symptoms. Through our years of both

practical and clinical experience and our extensive research, many

of these episodes of illness have a core cause to be toxins. Ourselves

and our pets are exposed to 100s to 1000s of chemicals daily. Most

destroy the body at a cellular level. Many enter the body through respiration

and the digestive tracts, hence the vomiting and diarrhea.

The foods we ingest are the vehicles for eliminating these poisons.

Today we’re faced with a chemical that is suddenly pervasive in

our foods and environment. Surely, you have recently seen it in the

news. It’s called glyphosate, an active ingredient in the herbicide

Roundup as well as other brands. While used as a weed killer, it is

patented as an antibiotic and when broken down, the word antibiotic

means “anti-life.” Unfortunately, glyphosate is being detected

in blood, breast milk and urine samples, as well as numerous foods

such as oatmeal, bagels, coffee creamer, organic bread, and honey.

The body is designed to naturally fight pathogens and to eliminate

toxins as it should but research shows numerous chemicals, specifically

glyphosate causes a disruption of these naturally protective

mechanisms of the body. These chemical antibiotics added into the

foods and our environment are killing the natural flora in the gut

and the intestinal tract that breaks down foods into basic nutrients

for use in the body. If this natural digestion process is altered by the

glyphosate or any other synthetic drug, the process is changed. Now

the body is imbalanced and not functioning naturally.

Studies linking glyphosate to antibiotic resistance as well as

causing harm to soil fungi are the latest nails in the coffin for

Roundup, which was also deemed a probable carcinogen by the

International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) in 2015. Monsanto

continues to contest the determination, even as it has been

publicized that they may have worked with a U.S. EPA official to

stop glyphosate investigations.

It’s frightening, considering the high cancer rates we are seeing in

our pets. Every exposure to these known toxins takes our pets down

the road of dysfunction. Sadly, most lawns in the United States have

had treatments containing these products as well as dog parks, golf

courses, and other public grounds. The danger is very real.

What can we do to avoid and heal this damage to the body?

Start with clean, species appropriate diets to build a strong immune

system that will replace those dead and damaged cells with

healthy ones. We can also look to herbs and botanicals that will

help the body neutralize and eliminate these poisons. And, of

course the most important thing is to avoid using these products,

avoid areas you know that have been treated and cleanse the body

after exposure. Toxins linger in the ground for years so cleanup is

almost impossible.

Next time your pet has a challenge, understand that they are usually

responding to an exposure to poison and that the body is fighting

back. Take charge of your pet’s health by being aware and informed.

misc | new year’s resolution fail


Reasons Most People Fail at

Their New Year’s Resolutions

(and How You Can Beat the Odds)

Who doesn’t love getting a fresh start? For many people, January

is the perfect time to shake off old vices and create some positive

new habits. But good intentions don’t always translate into actual

change. By February, the majority of resolution-setters have

abandoned their new goals and fallen back into their old ways.

Why does this happen? There are a number of common reasons

why most people don’t stick to their New Year’s resolutions.

If you make one of these mistakes, you’ll probably

find yourself giving up on your resolutions, too.

1. Not being realistic

Shooting for the moon isn’t always the best strategy. In fact, sometimes

it can prevent you from even getting off the ground. Realistically,

almost no one can learn a new language in six months or become a

runner overnight, but many people make overly-optimistic resolutions

like these every year. If you’re too ambitious with your New Year’s resolutions,

you’ll end up getting burned out before January is over.

2. Making too many resolutions

Even small resolutions can be hard to keep if you make too many of

them. It’s easy to get overwhelmed if you try to change more than one

or two habits at a time. Besides that, making a lot of different resolutions

is a sign that you haven’t put much thought into each one, and

it’s easy to give up on resolutions that aren’t meaningful to you.

3. Not setting specific goals

If your resolution is something like “lose weight” or “get better

grades,” you aren’t likely to succeed. Why? Because these goals are

vague and hard to track. Useful goals are specific and measurable - for

instance, “lose 10 pounds by March” or “get an A in calculus.”

4. Not making a plan

Along with a specific goal, you need a plan. How are you going

to turn your resolutions into reality? Many people fail at keeping

their resolutions because they don’t turn their goals into specific

action steps.

5. Giving up too soon

Perseverance is important for forming any new habit in your life,

but many people throw in the towel on their resolutions as soon as

something goes wrong. It’s important to stay flexible and to avoid getting

discouraged too quickly, even if your resolutions are tougher to

keep than you thought they’d be. Adjusting a goal to be more realistic

is better than giving up on it completely.

How Can You Beat the Odds and

Keep Your Resolutions?

Failing to keep New Year’s resolutions is very common - but the

good news is that it’s not inevitable. A minority of people do stick to

their resolutions every year, and if you’d like to be one of them, there

are some things you can do to increase your odds of success.

A) Set only resolutions that are meaningful to you.

If you don’t really care about your resolutions, you won’t stick to

them. Avoid choosing this year’s resolutions based on what you think

will impress other people. Instead, choose goals that you’re deeply

invested in.

B) Plan for the long haul.

Many people think of New Year’s resolutions as a quick fix for the

previous year’s problems and bad habits. In reality, though, it takes

time to create lasting changes in your life. Make your resolutions

with the knowledge that you’ll need to work on them consistently,

and adopt the mindset that if you fall off the wagon, you’ll climb

right back on.

C) Take baby steps.

Every big achievement is made up of a series of small action steps.

Break your goals down ahead of time, so you won’t get overwhelmed

when the new year rolls around. When you transform a big resolution

into a lot of small, doable steps, you’ll always know what to do next.

D) Track and celebrate your progress.

One of the best ways to stay on track is to look back at how far

you’ve come. It might be hard to see how your small victories matter

from moment to moment, but over time, those little wins really add

up. Keep a log of all your progress, and reward yourself for meeting

milestones on the way to your main goal.

The Takeaway

New Year’s resolutions get a bad rap because most people give up

on them after a few weeks. But if you love setting goals for yourself

at the start of the year, don’t give up on the idea of resolutions just

yet. Resolutions can actually be a very useful tool. By taking the right

approach and avoiding these five common mistakes, you might find it

easier than you expected to keep your resolutions all year long.

misc | dating


To Find

A Date

Being single is tough, and the

bar scene can be exhausting. If

you’re trying to meet a fun person

for more than just a hook-up, try

looking further than your local

bar. Here are some strategies for

meeting someone who might just

be excellent relationship material.

Let your friends know you’re looking

Usually, the people you hang out with will attract other people you

want to hang out with. That’s why meeting through friends is a great

way to find a successful relationship.

Married people and those in long-term relationships love to set people

up. Discreetly let married friends know you’re looking, and you

may just find yourself surrounded by interesting singles.

Attend weddings

Do you skip weddings because the celebration of someone else’s love

makes you sad that you’re single? That is the wrong approach.

Weddings are terrific places to meet other single people. Reply that

you’ll be coming without a plus one, and then get ready to take on opportunities

that present themselves. If you can, find out in advance who in the

wedding party is single.

Go someplace with a kid

Admittedly, this works better for finding women than it does for

meeting men. However, there are many single people of both genders

with children. If you don’t have a kid of your own, ask to

borrow a niece or nephew or a friend’s child for the afternoon,

and head to places where kids and parents congregate.

Encourage the child to play with kids whose parents look

interesting to you, and keep an eye out for wedding rings. Kids

are great conversation starters, so meeting should be a breeze.

136 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

Take a class in something interesting

Once you’ve finished school, you’ve lost a good source of single

people. Take yourself back to the classroom by enrolling in

something you enjoy.

Even if it’s community adult education, you’ll meet people

and learn something new.

For even more opportunities, volunteer to teach a class about

something you know. Specify that the course is for singles, and

you’ll be in a perfect position.

Go to church

If you have spiritual beliefs that are important to you, or if you

are interested in developing some, take yourself to a local religious

location. A church, temple or another place of worship can

be an excellent way to build a social circle and meet new people.

Play a sport

Your local community center or YMCA can direct you to

sports leagues just for grown-ups. There may even be some

specifically for singles.

It’s okay if you’re not athletic. Choose something that sounds

like fun, and do your best.

Volunteer for a political campaign

Are you passionate about politics? Try signing yourself up

to work for a local political campaign. You’ll get thrown into a

team of people who probably look at the world the way you do.

Working closely with someone to achieve a common goal is a

good way to start a relationship.

Buy someone a coffee

Going out for a morning coffee is a ritual that many people

will not miss. Hang out at a local coffee shop, and check out the

clientele. Offer to buy a coffee for someone who interests you.

If you’re bold, you could even send a coffee to someone who

is seated.

Be friendly at the gym

Maybe it’s an increase in heart rates or seeing people dressed

in workout gear, but whatever the reason, the gym is a great

place to find a date.

The next time you’re working out, take out your headphones

and look up from the treadmill. Make eye contact, smile and

start conversations.

Go places alone

It’s fun to go out with a group of friends, but you might be

making your dating life more challenging. You are much more

approachable if you go places alone.

See a movie by yourself now and then, or spend solo time at

library or museum. You might just attract your soul mate.

Meeting single people isn’t easy, but there’s a lot you can do to

increase your chances of finding someone incredible. Try these

10 tips, and maybe you’ll meet that person of your dreams.

misc | surprising facts about you



Facts You

Didn't Know

About You...

You might think most facts about

you are apparent and there’s not

much more you can learn.

However, some surprising details, although

simple, may have slipped through

the net when you learned about human

functioning and behavior. The following data is

likely to be a revelation.

You can foretell the weather

You probably know someone who swears

he/she can predict the weather. This person

might grumble about their aching knees or stiff

neck and report their symptoms indicate lousy

weather’s on the rise. No doubt, you think they

are eccentric and humor them good-naturedly.

However, it turns out your friend does have predictive


The pressure in the atmosphere drops significantly

before terrible weather arrives. Next, the

temperature alters and makes your body tissue

expand, causing inflammation. When your tissues

swell, aches and pains occur; this is especially noticeable

as you grow older if you have arthritis,

which turns you into a veritable barometer.

Crescent moon nails reveal

your health

Crescent moons, also called lunulae, are the

pale moon-shaped curves at the base of people’s

nails. Your nails show a great deal about your

health, and your lunulae or lack of them can reveal

whether you might have renal failure, toxins

in your body, or are prone to disease. Averagesized

lunulae can indicate good health; compare

yours to friend’s nails if you aren’t sure.

Crying is good for you

Many people try to retain a stiff upper lip and

hold back tears when they are hurt. However, crying

has a purpose and is good for you. When you

stifle tears, your pain increases. It’s best to let tears

flow to release stress. Also, your body produces

endorphins to anesthetize pain, and you start to

feel better when you have a good cry. Thus, don’t

be afraid to turn on the waterworks when you’re

upset to allow your anxiety to dissipate.

Intelligent people dream a lot

(and you dream more than you think)

Do you have loads of dreams most nights

and can’t wait to talk about them in the morning?

If so, you might be highly intelligent since

studies show people with high IQs dream more

than people who aren’t as smart. However, if

you don’t dream much, don’t worry, this doesn’t

mean you’re unintelligent. Research also reveals

138 | january 2018 | www.AtlanticAveMagazine.com

many people don’t remember their dreams, so perhaps you

dream often after all.

Creating the intention to remember dreams before falling

asleep, and keeping a journal in which to record your nighttime

imaginings by your bedside, will improve recall.

Your pupils dilate to show you

hate someone

What makes your heart beat faster, gives you butterflies in

your stomach, and causes your pupils to dilate? The answer is

love, of course. However, hate has the same effect. Excitement

and fear produce similar reactions, including enlarged pupils

which help you gain the broadest view possible of what’s happening

in your environment.

Talking to yourself makes you smart

Just like you think people who predict the weather with

their aches and pains are mad, you probably imagine those

who chat to themselves are nutty too. Well, apparently, talking

aloud to yourself can make you smarter, so feel free to

verbalize things you want to remember for greater recall and

have a heartfelt, private conversation when you wish to increase

cognitive functioning.

You might think you understand all there is to know about

you, but the chances are you’re unaware of plenty of facts.

Now, at least, you realize you can cry and chat to yourself

with wild abandon without being labeled crazy. You recognize

the aches that accompany aging can also come with

benefits; if your arthritis flares, you’ll know you should wrap

up warm and take your umbrella with you when you leave

the house. Also, dreaming a lot makes you smarter, and the

state of you lunulae can warn you of poor health. Also, when

you find someone abhorrent, your pupils are large and attractive,

so you get an eyeful of them.

misc | HUMOUR


Will Your


Say About


by Greg Hanson

It’s never too early to think about the legacy you will

leave. Whether you anticipate several decades or just a

short time remaining on this earth, how you live now will

impact how you are remembered after you are gone.

The epitaphs on tombstones have often been used to tell

more than the name of the deceived, the date of birth,

and the date of death. At times, tombstones have included

additional—even humorous—details about the person.

One such epitaph apparently pays homage to the profession

of a deceased dentist: “Here lies John D. Cudd, DMD, filling his

last cavity!”

In New Mexico, another tombstone played on the name of

the dearly departed: “Here lies Johnny Yeast. Pardon me for not

rising.” Johnny (or perhaps his family) apparently had a sense

of humor.

Not all epitaphs are flattering. An eighteenth-century tombstone

in Massachusetts supposedly acknowledges the deceased’s

propensity for gossip. “Here lies a silent clay Miss Arabella

Young, who on the 21st of May began to hold her tongue.”

What will your tombstone reveal about the kind of person

you were? Will it show your love for family? Will it acknowledge

your involvement in your community? Will it describe

your devotion to your faith? Will you be remembered the way

you want to be remembered?

If you want your epitaph to say good things about you, you

must earn it by the way you live now. How you will be remembered

after you die depends on the compassion, generosity, and

self-sacrifice you exhibit during your lifetime. Do not wait too

long to begin building your legacy; live today as you would like

to be remembered then.
