Spring Has


Clocks spring forward on Sunday, March 8 giving us

longer beautiful sunny days, spring break brings college

kids home (probably with laundry), spring training for

baseball is in full swing (pardon the pun) in our backyard,

and our perfect weather is just prime for a parade!

The 52nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival

takes place on Saturday, March 14. The family friendly parade and festival

gets better every year. Beginning at 11am, there are activities for all

ages. The parade begins at 2pm so get to the parade route early or make

a reservation at a restaurant on the parade route for a front row seat.

Don’t forget to wear green! For more information on the parade and other

festivities read Delray Under $50.

The Achievement Center for Children & Families’ CEO Stephanie Seilbel

is our City Person. This incredible woman raises over five million dollars

a year to support the programs the center offers to all and has over 100

employees as well! Read about this amazing resource we are so lucky to

have in Delray Beach, in our regular feature City People.

Craving a home cooked meal, but don’t want to cook at home? Or maybe

a bit of a slower pace off the Ave? Well then Ellie’s 50’s Diner is where

you need to go! This amazing diner offers home cooking with a nostalgic

flair. Decorated just like the name implies – Ellie’s is like stepping back in

time into the 1950s when poodle skirts and Elvis was all the rave! Stop in,

order a “Love Me Tender Cheeseburger Deluxe” or the popular “Only You

Meatloaf” with an old-fashioned chocolate milkshake – YUM!

See you at the Parade! Slainté!

May you have

the hindsight

to know where

you’ve been, the

foresight to know

where you are

going, and the

insight to know

when you have

gone too far.

Most Fun Small Town, Most Crazy Small Town, Most Small Town that Feels

Like a Big Town. Delray has it all. With a bustling downtown, Pineapple

Grove area, and little nooks and crannies in between, there’s more

to do in Delray now than ever, with events and happenings

spanning from daytime to nighttime. While it can

seem expensive at times, there’s a great

opportunity to enjoy all the City has to offer

without breaking the bank. Here’s what you can

do in Delray Beach in March for $50 or less.

26 | march 2020 |

Ain’t no party like a St. Patrick’s Day party because a St. Patrick’s Day

party don’t stop! So get ready to party hardy with all your greenminded

friends and a few thousand of Delray’s finest because it’s

that time again. Even though St. Patrick’s Day is officially on Tuesday,

March 17, the 52nd Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade and Festival is held

the Saturday prior on March 14. Presented by the City of Delray Beach,

you’re invited to indulge in live music, beer and cocktails, food trucks, food

booths, arts and crafts vendors, games, raffles, activities

for kids, a pipes and drums performance

and, of course, the legendary parade! The

parade, which began in 1968 by local Irishmen

and pub owner Maury Power

and his green pig, features our

local non-profit organizations

including businesses,

schools, civic organizations,

veterans, police, firefighters and

EMS personnel. The free, familyfriendly

festival begins

at 11am in downtown

more activities than

row access to more than

70 entries as they march

from the Intracoastal

bridge to Northwest

Fifth Avenue. The city

comes alive with all

of the St. Patrick’s spirit

pouring into the street

and is really a great experience,

regardless of age. Three cheers for St. Patrick! Visit

or call (561) 243-7452 for more information and event details.

Creative vision - you either have it or you don’t, or just chock everything

up to “abstract” art and call it a day. Regardless, if you need

some inspiration, would like to fine tune your creative spirit, or

want to reward someone else for their craftiness, the good people at Old

School Square have you covered. The Vintage Craft Market is an upscale,

curated, vintage-inspired outdoor market that is here to handle all of your

craft needs. Located on the Old School Square Park grounds, the Vintage

plantings and more. You’re invited to grab a glass of wine or a beer

(or other refreshments) and peruse the hand-crafted art, recycled and upcycled

décor items, and meet the vendors. The best part is that admission

is free so you have nothing to lose and everything to gain! The Market is

held Saturday, March 28 and Sunday, March 29 from 10am to 4pm both

days at Old School Square, 51 N. Swinton Ave. Visit www.oldschoolsquare.

Quin-what? Quin-who? It’s quinoa, brah! March is National Quinoa

Month and is a great time to explore the wonderful opportunities

that quinoa has to offer. Did you know that quinoa is an annual

plant grown as a crop primarily for its edible seeds, which are rich in protein,

dietary fiber, B vitamins, and dietary minerals in amounts greater

than in many grains? This is why it’s the “new” kale and avocado toast,

and has popped up on almost every restaurant menu in town. If you’re

new to the quinoa scene or are anxiously finding new places to get your

seed sustenance, the Avenue is the place to hit. The Office is serving up

their mouthwatering Veggie Burger, which is made with an organic quinoa

and lentil patty, lettuce, tomato, onion confit, cheddar and office sauce for

$17. If you prefer to get your bowl on, head to Whole Green Café and sink

your teeth into their Quinoa Bowl, made with quinoa, tomato, cucumber,

purple cabbage, carrots, avocado, roasted vegetables (broccoli, cauliflower,

asparagus and squash) and a cilantro-lime-yogurt-garlic dressing for

$11.95. If you’re not drooling yet, march you and your appetite over

to Cut432 and enjoy their Grilled Faroe Island Salmon, made with

organic beet and pomegranate quinoa, dill crème fraiche and spiced

apples for $33. Whatever your quinoa pleasure, you’re guaranteed

to come back for seconds. Visit or

call (561) 243-1077 for complete restaurant information.

I’m sorry, what were you saying? Uh, yes, wait, no, um, maybe?

There’s either a really good chance that these responses sound

family because you’ve heard them, or you’ve said them in a distracted,

I’m-mildly-paying-attention-to-you manner. Well, wakey,

wakey, it’s time to pay attention. March is International Listening

Month and is a great reminder to be more present in your daily communications.

In all honesty, you might be missing out on something

important like winning lotto numbers or a love confession! If you

practice daily this month, you can reward your ears with a little fun

listening with Classic Albums Live: Pink Floyd, The Wall at the Old

School Square Pavilion. Pink Floyd’s legendary and controversial

concept album The Wall remains one of the biggest selling albums of

all time, and a major moment in rock music history. From “Another

Brick in the Wall” and “Comfortably Numb” to “Hey You,” you’re invited

to experience this acclaimed album with fresh air, a cool breeze,

and no ceiling for enjoyment. General admission is $20 (bring your

own chair) and premium seating is $40 (reserved seating) so all you

need to do is show up to get down. Founded in 2003 by Toronto musician

Craig Martin, Classic Albums Live has quickly earned a stellar

reputation for perfectly recreating classic albums, recreated live on

stage, note for note, cut for cut. The event is held Friday, March 20

and doors open at 6:30pm and music starts at 8pm so plan to arrive

early if you want to get a good spot. Visit

or call (561) 243-7922 to purchase tickets or for more information.

Laughter is definitely the best medicine, but sometimes it can

get lost in the funny sauce if the delivery doctor isn’t up to par.

So when you find a funny friend, neighbor or stranger, keep

him or her in your laughter vault for a rainy day. March is Humorists

and Artists Month and is the perfect time to take a cue from stage

presenters on how to get down in funny town. The good people at

the Delray Beach Playhouse have brought you Stage Struck: A Play

by Simon Gray and you’re invited to take a seat and laugh your seat

off. Dubbed a “witty and ingenious thrilled” by the Daily Mail, the

play is a story of Anne O’Neill and Robert Simon’s marriage seven

years ago. Anne was a promising actress and he had given up a failing

career on the stage to become a stage manager in a provincial

theatre. But since marrying, Anne has become a major star on the

London stage, all while Robert’s career has peaked, leading to fallow

periods of unemployment and occasional appearances on television

as a murder victim. Adapting to their new circumstances, Robert

now functions as Anne’s personal assistant and soothes his ego by

indulging in brief affairs with young actresses. In a desperate attempt

to save her marriage, Anne consults a psychiatrist. But when

he advises her to leave her husband, Robert realizes that he only

has two alternatives: to be thrown abruptly onto the street, or to

become a wealthy widower. The question is, does he have the skill

to play the role of real-life murderer? You’ll have to see to find out!

Tickets are $35 per person and there are several evening and matinee

showings throughout March. The Delray Beach Playhouse is

located 950 N.W. Ninth St. Visit or

call (561) 272-1281 for more information and to purchase tickets.

The South Florida Garlic Fest

Receives Attention on Jeopardy! Game Show

The South Florida Garlic Fest, fondly referred

to as the “Best ‘Stinkin’ Party in

South Florida” was featured as a question

on the internationally broadcasted show,

Jeopardy! On February 11, 2020.

Jeopardy! Is an American television game

show created by Merv Griffin. The American

syndicated version of Jeopardy! is also broadcast

throughout the world, with international

distribution rights handled by CBS Studios International.

“The Isle of Wight & Lake Worth, Florida both

have annual festivals honoring this pungent

bulb and its endless potential” was the question

Alex Trebek read aloud to the three contestants.

While thousands of Lake Worth residents and

Seth Groveman, Rolling

Green Elementary

surrounding south Florida cities shouted “garlic!”

at their TV screens, the three Jeopardy!

Contestants struggled to find the answer.

The first contestant to buzz in was Vinny

Byju, a student from Cambridge Massachusetts,

whom incorrectly guessed “what is

horseradish.” The second contestant to buzz

in was Kristyna Ng, a corporate strategist from

Calgary, Alberta, Canada whom incorrectly

guessed “what is onion.” Finally, the third contestant,

Danyelle Long-Hyland, from Ranson,

West Virginia swiftly buzzed in with the correct

answer, “what is garlic.”

The festival now calls Lake Worth its home

after outgrowing its original location in Delray

Beach four years ago. “We love our new

home at John Prince Park,” says Festival Director,

Nancy Stewart-Franzcak. “The city of Lake

Worth and the management team at Parks and

Recreation have welcomed us with open arms

for the last four years and we look forward to

growing this festival with them in the coming

years.,” says Franzcak.

Garlic Fest brings more than a party with its

two-day festival. The economic impact the festival

brings to the city of Lake Worth totals to

$1,276,733.00. To date, over $610,000.00 has

been contributed back to the volunteer organizations

that staff the event. Over 15 groups

comprised of over 500 volunteers give their

time, energy and hearts to the South Florida

Garlic Fest.

One Little Lie

by Colleen Coble

Released March 3rd

It started with one little lie. But Jane Hardy

will do everything in her power to uncover

the truth in this gripping new romantic


Jane Hardy is appointed interim sheriff in

Pelican Harbor, Alabama, after her father retires,

but there’s no time for an adjustment

period. When her father is arrested for theft

and then implicated in a recent murder, Jane

quickly realizes she’s facing someone out to

destroy the only family she has.

After escaping with her father from a

cult fifteen years ago, Jane has searched relentlessly

for her mother—who refused to

leave—ever since. Could someone from that

horrible past have found them?

Reid Bechtol is well-known for his documentaries,

and his latest project involves

covering Jane’s career. Jane has little interest

in the attention, but the committee who appointed

her loves the idea of the publicity.

Jane finds herself depending on Reid’s

calm manner as he follows her around filming,

and they begin working together to clear

her father. But Reid has his own secrets from

the past, and the gulf between them may be

impossible to cross—especially once her father’s

lie catches up with him.

The Sea Glass


by RaeAnne Thayne

Released March 17th

From the New York Times bestselling author

RaeAnne Thayne tells the story of an

emotional homecoming that brings hope and

healing to three generations of women.

The life Olivia Harper always dreamed

of isn’t so dreamy these days. The 16-hour

workdays are unfulfilling and so are things

with her on-again, off-again boyfriend. But

when she hears that her estranged mother,

Juliet, has been seriously injured in a car accident,

Liv has no choice but to pack up her life

and head home to beautiful Cape Sanctuary

on the Northern California coast.

It’s just for a few months—that’s what Liv

keeps telling herself. But the closer she gets

to Cape Sanctuary, the painful memories start

flooding back: Natalie, her vibrant, passionate

older sister who downward spiraled into addiction.

The fights with her mother who enabled

her sister at every turn. The overdose

that took Natalie, leaving her now-teenaged

daughter, Caitlin, an orphan.

As Liv tries to balance her own needs with

those of her injured mother and an obstinate,

resentful fifteen-year-old, it becomes

clear that all three Harper women have been

keeping heartbreaking secrets from one another.

And as those secrets are revealed, Liv,

Juliet, and Caitlin will see that it’s never too

late—or too early—to heal family wounds

and find forgiveness.

The Uninhabitable

Earth: Life After


by David Wallace-Wells

Released March 17th


Uninhabitable Earth hits you like a comet,

with an overflow of insanely lyrical prose

about our pending Armageddon.”—Andrew

Solomon, author of The Noonday Demon

With a new afterword

It is worse, much worse, than you think. If

your anxiety about global warming is dominated

by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely

scratching the surface of what terrors are

possible—food shortages, refugee emergencies,

climate wars and economic devastation.

An “epoch-defining book” (The Guardian)

and “this generation’s Silent Spring” (The


Washington Post), The Uninhabitable Earth

is both a travelogue of the near future and

a meditation on how that future will look to

those living through it—the ways that warming

promises to transform global politics,

the meaning of technology and nature in the

modern world, the sustainability of capitalism

and the trajectory of human progress.

The Uninhabitable Earth is also an impassioned

call to action. For just as the world was

brought to the brink of catastrophe within the

span of a lifetime, the responsibility to avoid it

now belongs to a single generation – Today’s

Tennis Injuries:

Cutting Edge Treatments and Prevention Strategies

54 | march 2020 |

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is by far one of the

most prevalent injuries in tennis. It is caused by the microtearing

of the extensor group muscles of the elbow. These

muscles are located on the thumb side of the elbow and allow us

to bring our wrist back and side to side. Scar tissue can form in

the muscle belly which can compress important nerves and blood

vessels. It typically occurs secondarily to the use of an aluminum

racquet, incorrect grip measurement, improper backhand technique,

excess weight of the racquet, and too much tension in the strings.

Rotator cuff tendonitis is also caused by micro-tearing in the

belly of the muscle. The muscles involved are the rotator cuff muscles

of the shoulder which originate in the shoulder blade (scapula)

and attach to the upper arm (humerus). Typically we see this occur

with players who serve with an elbow to side angle of less than 90

degrees. Due to the improper mechanics of the serve it typically

also requires the player to serve repeatedly.

A byproduct of the constant running and cutting in tennis is anterior

(front) knee pain located deep, beneath the knee cap (patella).

The patella fails to track or move correctly within the knee

resulting in frictional forces applied to the lower femur bone and

subsequent braking off of small pieces of cartilage. This can lead to

a condition called chondromalacia patella. Pain is usually experienced

when going up stairs and stopping abruptly while running.

The primary goals in treating these disorders are to reduce inflammation,

break up the fibrotic adhesions (scar tissue), strengthen

surrounding musculature and neurological pathways, and restore

proper joint motion. This entails some simple procedures

including myofascial release, passive and active mobilization,

isometric and isotonic strengthening, and joint manipulation (adjustment).

New cutting edge procedures involve the use of high

power class IV lasers which accelerate tissue healing by nearly

tenfold and the use of mirrors in a technique termed mirror imaging

technique which attempts to strengthen the neurological and

immune pathways in the affected limb. In addition, cross cord applications

and eccentric fast stretching are novel procedures which

decrease the healing time.

In terms of nutrition, supplementing with proteolytic enzymes

and essential fatty acids will help to reduce inflammation and

break down scar tissue. Sticking to an anti-inflammatory, low glycemic

index diet will also help to reduce inflammation and insulin

surges which can promote neurological degeneration

Lastly, prevention is the key to avoiding injury all together. Here

are some key tips to increase your longevity and effectiveness on

the court:

1. Utilize a ceramic or graphite racquet with reduced vibration.

2. Choose a lighter racquet -10.5 - 11.5 oz.

3. Make sure you have a correct grip measurement.

4. Use natural gut strings, which have tension 3-5lbs below what

an athlete is used to.

5. Use proper backhand technique.

6. Warm up prior to playing.

7. Focus on core muscle training.

8. Keep your spine in correct alignment.

9. Strengthen lower extremity musculature.

10. Take multivitamin with plenty of anti-oxidants.

A real cutting edge procedure is termed motor imaging technique.

In essence the athlete visualizes in sets and repetition format,

a learned movement such as the various movements on the

tennis court. The visualization must be very detailed in nature.

Scientifically, the neurological pathways involved in the particular

movement are enhanced and other non-pertinent pathways

inhibited. This activity is gaining great notoriety as many of the

top athletes in the world are incorporating this into their treatment

PRP Growth Factors

Most of us have seen the shocking image of Kim Kardashian’s

bloody face promoting the “Vampire facial.” Disregarding all the hype

surrounding it, the actual procedure is revolutionary and is called microneedling

with PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma. The technology behind the

procedure is using the body’s natural ability to repair damaged tissue

and grow healthy new tissue safely, without unwanted side effects.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a preparation of your own blood

that is put into a centrifuge to extract the concentrated content

of platelets and their growth factors. Once prepared, it is

injected into the body or delivered through micro-needling which

makes small channels into the skin using a motorized pen with

micro needles in it. The platelets contained in PRP promotes healing

and regeneration by releasing growth factors. It is the growth

factor cytokines that signal your own body’s stem cells to become

active and respond to the injury of the skin, healing the damaged

cells. Platelet derived growth factors can create new cell growth,

repair old cells that have been damaged through the aging process,

as well as stimulate collagen production.

An even more concentrated and effective form of PRP is now

available from a donated placenta and its amniotic membrane. The

growth factors from the amniotic membrane are isolated and can be

administered just as the PRP but the effects are greater and more effective

from the potent array of growth factors doing the work.

In aesthetics, PRP or growth factors are being used to help regenerate

the skin and speed up healing time from procedures such

as lasers and micro-needling. It also can be directly injected into

the skin to give a small amount of volume but more importantly

improve the quality of the skin in areas like the tear troughs, acne

scars and smile lines. Results can be seen almost immediately - by

a glowing complexion - but the real work that is done on a cellular

level can be fully enjoyed in 8-12 weeks when collagen is formed.

Crepey skin of the neck and chest, and the face can be rejuvenated

and restored to a more youthful appearance.

PRP and growth factors have also been found to promote hair

growth. Amniotic fluid contains cytokines which are signaling

proteins that stimulate cellular activity within the scalp. Injecting

PRP or growth factors stimulate the hair follicle cells into an active

state where they start producing hair again. On a vascular level,

the growth factors have the ability to form new blood vessels as

well as regenerate the old. In doing so they aide the body in delivering

improved blood flow to the scalp or revascularization, so it can

promote more hair regrowth in a nutrient rich environment. Treatments

take about 6 weeks to see a difference and can be retreated

every 12 weeks until desired results are achieved.

Do You Really Need Breakfast?

You may or may not have heard of this concept before

but if you haven’t let me introduce you to Intermittent

Fasting (IF), how it works and why I love it!

When I began learning about this concept, it was difficult

believing this way of eating could be so beneficial. Skipping

breakfast, letting hours go by without eating!? No

way!? But after doing lots of research and practicing Intermittent

Fasting for several years, I can share how IF can make reaching

your fitness goals a bit easier by turning on your body’s fat burning

mode and help you become healthier.

So what type of “diet” is this, might you ask? Well, it’s not a diet

it’s actually a pattern. Intermittent Fasting is an eating pattern that

cycles between periods of fasting and eating. It does not give you particular

foods you should eat, but rather when you should eat. Don’t

let the term “fasting” scare you. Fasting actually allows the body to

function more efficiently and literally helps turn your body into a fat

burning machine. Not only is it super beneficial for fat burning, it has

other amazing health benefits as well. IF is efficient at lowering insulin

resistance (perfect for people concerned about Type 2 Diabetes).

It helps reduce stress and inflammation in the body, which is beneficial

in helping to starve cancer cells. IF also backs the research of

lowering your risk of Alzheimer’s (something that runs on both sides

of my family) and increases brain health and function. Personally, I

think more clearly and have much more energy before I put food in

my body. Go figure, right? The list of health benefits goes on and on.

If you are interested in learning more about these IF health benefits,

I urge you to do some research of your own.

58 | march 2020 |

In addition, IF allows to simplify your eating. I am no longer consumed

with food and what and when I need to be eating. Life just

seems a little simpler when you aren’t worried about breakfast

while getting kids and yourself out of the house. A feat any busy

person can understand. What does skipping breakfast have to do

with all of this? Skipping breakfast extends the amount of time that

you are in the fasting state. While you are sleeping your body is

in a fasting state. That’s why breakfast is called “break-fast.” Skipping

breakfast extends the time your body is in fat burning mode.

Experts recommend fasting for at least 16 hours from the time of

your last meal. So if you ate dinner at 7pm your next meal should

be at 11am the following day. By letting your body “fast” and giving

it a break from being fed constantly it allows for amazing health

benefits to start taking place.

There are several different methods/ways to incorporate Intermittent

Fasting into your lifestyle. This is not a one size fits all type

of plan and there are many different methods to suit individual

needs. Do some research and find a version that will work best with

your needs, goals and lifestyle.

Delray Beach Golf Club

Offering History and Events

for Golfers of All Levels

By Nicol Jenkins | photos by melissa korman

From the very beginning, Delray Beach Golf Club

has been frequented by golf pros and aficionados

because of its rich history and pristine course.

Originally designed by the legendary golf course architect

Donald Ross, then the City of Delray Beach had purchased

land for the course in 1923 and a nine-hole course was officially

opened in 1926. That course continued in operation until

forced to close because of World War II. After reopening the course

in 1945, the City leaders voted to add a second nine holes which

opened in 1950 and was built by renowned architect Dick Wilson.

Lakeview Golf Club, their sister course was built in 1972 at a separate

nearby location.

Touring professionals, on their way to Miami to play would stop

over in Delray to loop the excellent Ross-designed layout. In fact, it

was listed as one of the top ten courses in the country at the time!

As word spread, more and more players and club professionals began

“hanging” at DBGC, including golf legends Tommy Armour and

Betty Jameson, LPGA Hall of Fame member.

62 | march 2020 |


Today the Delray Beach Golf Course and Lakeview Golf Clubs

thrive as an accessible public venue, with 150 acres of land, that will

intrigue golfers of all skill levels. Delray Beach Golf Club is proud to

provide both individual and group instruction. PGA professionals

offer any type of instruction to fit your needs. Delray Beach Golf

Club will also be providing clinics throughout the year, including

beginner, junior, and parent and child clinics.

Besides daily golf lessons, group clinics and men’s and women’s

programming, the Tommy Armour Lounge offers a perfect venue

for your special occasion. The staff can cater to your event from

weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, mitzvahs, engagement

parties, company picnics, corporate events, and fundraising activi-

ties, birthday and holiday parties, school functions, church and religious

gatherings, and class reunions or family reunions. The beautiful

facility has a banquet hall which can hold 200 guests, and the

incredible staff will work with you to ensure that your event goes

off better than you could have ever hoped. The Delray Beach Golf

Club restaurant was recently voted “Best of Delray.” Head Chef Robert

Courtemanche has a full menu daily for lunch and they offer an

unlimited selection of special event menus. Delray Beach Golf Club

offers events such as a women’s golf day in June, the Delray Beach

Senior Games, a junior summer camp and many more!

“There is a lot of history to this place. Many people have grown

up on the golf courses and we have a strong following. Our golf

courses feel like a second home to them,” said Tommi Ylijoki, PGA,

Director of Golf for the Delray Beach Golf Club.

Lakeview Golf Clubs, located only a half a mile from Delray Beach

Golf Club is a par 60 executive golf course. Many seniors, juniors,

and beginners come to the smaller golf course to try the game or

attend one of the many events including the Caddy Shack event and

Glowball, where attendees play golf at night. Their most popular

The Big Apple

Salon & Spa Suites

By diane feen | photos by melissa korman

The Big Apple Shopping Bazaar is growing. They

still have a 35,000-square-foot retail footprint on

one of the busiest streets in Palm Beach County.

They still offer merchants and shoppers unique items from

one- of-a-kind shops, and they still have a wonderful café in

the back that serves homemade Mediterranean cuisine.

But there is something new brewing in this amalgam of shops.

Called The Big Apple Salon & Spa Suites, this new outer parameter

of private suites is ready and waiting for new tenants.

Their philosophy to this addition is “Your Space. Your Time.


And they mean it.

Anyone with an entrepreneurial streak - or a desire to build

their business - can rent a private suite. Each suite comes fully

equipped and professionally designed with the highest standard

Pibbs Industries equipment, Eyevac Pro Floor Vacuum Cleaner and

individual climate control.

Each suite comes with French doors and is available in double or

single size with LED lighting and dimmer chandelier. They also have

decorative wood trimming painted to complement each designer

66 | march 2020 |

suite. It has everything you need to start your business.

You also get a private entrance and the ability to make your

own hours. Just think - you get to keep all the profits other than

a low weekly rent. And, you have the luxury of running your own

business in a modern upbeat space.

“Working in a traditional salon, your earnings are hindered by

commission-structured payouts. Or you end up paying rent for

a chair to follow someone else’s dream,” said Jerry Sosa, General

Manager of Big Apple.

“Instead of putting a percentage of your earnings in someone

else’s pocket, you get to keep the profits. At The Big Apple Salon

& Spa Suites, 100% of Your business goes to You, and the space is

YOURS,” said Sosa.

The benefit of having a salon suite at the Big Apple is that you

get to be an entrepreneur without the risk and expense. You make

your own hours; your own schedule and you can sell any products

you want.


Currently The Big Apple is looking for Nail Techs, Hair Stylists,

Colorists, Barbers, Microblading, Lash Extensions, Estheticians,

Make Up Artists, Spray Tanning, Tattoo Artist, and Massage

Therapists. Doctors, skin care Botox-Dermatology Professionals

and licensed beauty professionals are welcome.

You get complimentary Wi-Fi, after hours security and surveillance

system and on-site commercial washer and dryer. Utilities are

included in the weekly rent.

But the most important ingredient to success is Location,

Location, Location. And the Big Apple has just that. They are right

in the heart of Delray Beach, the winner of the “All American City

Award” three times. Over 45,000 cars drive by each day and there

is plenty of free parking in front.

That’s why Mercia Beauty Salon has come aboard the Salon & Spa

Suite. She does treatments to keep hair shiny, straight and smooth,

such as the Influence Treatment. She also does hair wrapping,

temporary color and styling.

There are also 65 shops located under the same roof, bringing

in shoppers and guests. Clients can browse on streets of New York

with names like Canal Street and 5th Avenue. They can shop at

designer boutiques, go to the Jewelry Exchange or have a bite to

eat at the café.

Also new and exciting is their Jewelry Exchange. There are 50

prime retail spots waiting for your jewelry business. Big Apple is

looking to rent shops for those who sell Fine Jewelry, offer Jewelry

Repair, Buyers and Sellers of Jewelry or any other jewelry related

service or business. The best part - you can start your business the

day you sign the lease. No waiting!

“We offer the best rental rates in the industry” said Sosa. There

will be valet parking for customers and jewelers, armed security

guards, cutting-edge technology security system, 24-hour video

surveillance, 350 parking spaces, restaurant café, and a beautiful

Disney-like interior design of New York City.

Shhaydes of Blue recently opened at the Big Apple Jewelry Exchange.

The wholesale Jeweler has gone retail - thanks to the Big

Apple. They specialize in synthetic stones, fine gold jewelry with

natural precious stones, semi-precious stones, diamonds, silver

and more. They also make custom one-of-a-kind high-end jewelry

and wedding gifts.

“I am confident this was the right decision. It’s a great location

and a phenomenal clientele and our customers have been thrilled

with our prices. Everyone is so nice and are very warm and

welcoming. I’ve never seen this in any retail place before,” said

owner Ashwini Prasad.

To create excitement the Big Apple is hosting a variety of Monthly

Special Events. On March 14th there will be a Pop-Up Vendor Event

with clothing, jewelry, health and wellness vendors. There will be

Live Music, free gifts, an Irish Lunch Special and a celebration of

commerce and community. The shopping experience goes from

10am to 4pm.

On March 28th there will be antique and collectibles and on April

4th there will be an Easter Bunny and Passover Event. There will

also be a Pet Rescue station and Pet Adoption.

Check out their Facebook page for all the Event Updates: www.

Get in on the ground floor and rent a space for your salon or spa,

doctor’s office, business, or jewelry shop.

SoFlo Home Realty

Roberta Lucas Can Help

You Find Your New Home

By nicol jenkins | photos by melissa korman

For over 13 years, Roberta Lucas of SoFlo Home Realty has

been assisting her clients in finding the home of their dreams.

The realtor has specialized in the South Florida real estate

market and has recently expanded to selling a new construction

project called Delray Beach Luxury Homes, built by her business

partner and husband George Lucas of Tropical Custom Builders.

This luxurious development consists of 13 single family new

construction homes conveniently located at 830 N Lake Avenue,

Delray Beach, minutes from the beach and Atlantic Avenue.

Transitional and contemporary models come with high-end

finishes and appliances, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, 4,398 square

feet of total area and 3,123 square feet under air. Homes come with

covered patio, PGT impact windows and doors, 2-car garage, infinity

pool and private manicured backyard. Offering the best in urban

and coastal living, and starting at $1,799,000. For more information,


“Our goal is to make all of our customers enjoy a commercial

graded built home in one of the hottest spots on earth, Delray

Beach,” said Roberta.

Her passion for real estate started when she was only 19 years

old. As a freshman at Philadelphia Community College, Roberta

70 | march 2020 |

Upstairs Loft and Balcony

decided to buy her first property, after she decided to get her real

estate license, and the rest is history.

“I started selling homes in Northeast Philly. In the meantime, my

husband and I crossed paths. He already owned a few properties

and encouraged me to buy more. He was always very mechanically

inclined to fix anything and everything. We got married in 2005 and

started flipping homes in the city of Philadelphia. I dominated the

Brazilian market and sold houses to many people aside from my

flips,” she said.

In 2010 after having two beautiful children, they decided to move

to South Florida, and Roberta began selling properties from Miami

to Delray Beach. Her last year as an agent working for an outside

brokerage was 2017. She left One Sotheby’s International Realty

and started working for SoFlo Home Realty, a company owned by

her husband, George Lucas. “He has done a lot to improve the cities

of Fort Lauderdale and Oakland Park, including winning the prize of


Dining Area

building the most beautiful house in Fort Lauderdale,” said Roberta.

Roberta finds it rewarding to help her clients sell their homes. She is

currently listing a beautiful waterfront home located at 1517 SE 12th

Court, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316, MLS#: F10152969, for $3.9 million,

in Lauderdale Harbor, next to the Yacht Club in Fort Lauderdale.

“I love helping my clients buy or sell a home. It is more about

satisfying their needs. The deal can get complicated, if representing

the buyer, I want to make sure they are not getting too stressed out,

and the same with the seller. I really work with my clients to help

them,” said Roberta.

Her clients praise Roberta for their hard work and dedication to

helping them with all their real estate needs.

“As Connor and I approach our six month anniversary in this

beautiful place we call home, I wanted to express our appreciation

to the woman who made it all happen for us. It’s not everyday

that you partner with a professional as invested in the process as

you are. We were impressed with the market knowledge you demonstrated,

and the positive approach you applied toward finding

exactly what we wanted. We are posting this message to express

our gratitude for a job well done and in doing so share with others

our experience with others who may be considering their real

estate needs. It’s our pleasure to acknowledge a real woman out

there making it happen for those who are fortunate enough to be

Family Area

in the know when it is time to make one of life’s bigger decisions.

We recommend Roberta Lucas wholeheartedly, and suggest you do

yourself a favor and experience the difference that Roberta brings

to the table,” said the Katris’.

“I have had the pleasure of knowing Roberta professionally for

several years. We met while she was assisting my son and his wife

purchase their first home. I was immediately impressed with her

expertise, professionalism and desire to find the exact home that

my son and daughter-in-law wanted. She facilitated over the difficult

task of finding the combination of a condo they would love

and could afford. Eventually she was not only able to find their

perfect home, she assisted them with the complicated issues of

finance, HOA approval and finding suitable contractors to make

their new home perfect. Several years later, our family situation

changed, and we welcomed an addition to our family which necessitated

my move from Orlando to Fort Lauderdale and subsequent

purchase of suitable property for myself and other son. It

was never in doubt that we would ask Roberta for her assistance

and, as before, she went over and above to find a condo that fit

my needs and financial situation. Fast forward two years and,

this time, we called on Roberta who was no longer just our agent

but a valued friend to help us in what can only be called a chess

game of property. The move involved selling one condo, renting

the other while finding two new perfect homes. Roberta accepted

the challenge and even though the process became much more

complicated than expected; my dear friend Roberta accomplished

everything we needed of her. I was completely impressed by her

knowledge and professionalism. She accomplished everything

with grace and good humor further proving what I already knew:

Roberta is the agent everyone wants but more importantly the

one everyone needs on their complicated, exhausting journey in

property sales and purchases,” stated M. Corsino.

Be On the Lookout for Leggings,

Donna Jo Skorts & Much More!

BY Nicol Jenkins | photos by melissa korman

More than just leggings, BOLO - Be On the

Lookout offers a unique and exciting concept

store in the heart of Downtown Delray Beach.

Maria Nelkin, owner of Bolo Boutique

This is the only boutique store on Atlantic Avenue where you

can find all styles of fitness, yoga, workout and casual wear

in one location with a personalized shopping experience.

All the latest trends in active wear - including Dona Jo skorts -

can be found at BOLO. They are constantly evolving and bringing in

new brands each season. There are new collections coming in every

week. Shoppers can find high-end brands such as Onzie and Noli.

Noli’s fabrics are all from Italy and the prints are amazing.

“We offer such a wide range of active wear to choose from, and

a diverse selection of colors and styles,” said owner Maria Nelkin.

BOLO has everything you need to get you inspired, from a variety

of brands, colors, fabrics and excellent customer service.

“We provide our customers with absolute service,” said Nelkin.

The store has a wide variety of active wear, yoga wear, casual

wear and accessories to look good while you are working out or

strolling down the Avenue.

BOLO is now in its seventh year of business in Delray Beach;

having transitioned to the fitness concept store three years ago and

business has been booming ever since. Owner Maria Nelkin noticed

that the residents and visitors to Delray Beach were wearing more

fashion forward active wear around the beach town. Since there

wasn’t a store that offered this kind of fashion on the Ave she

decided to try something new to the area.

“People in Delray Beach wear active wear all the time; they are

either working out, walking or they simply want to look like they

work out. We are extremely unique to the Avenue. There is no other

store that offers only active wear. We are the only one in the area,” said

Nelkin. “Our customers really enjoy seeing the different collections.

We get new collections every week, new styles and new colors.”

Unlike big chain stores, BOLO offers only top-quality brands and

merchandise made in the USA and Brazil. The store has a wide

selection of active wear and accessories including skorts for tennis,

golf, or simply just walking, yoga balls and mats, colorful leggings,

sunglasses, unique jewelry, candles, Blush underwear, tees, books

on health and fitness and much more!

The product lines include the best quality designers: skorts from

Dona Jo, active wear and leggings from Liquido, Terez, Onzie, Noli,

Freyrs Sunglasses, Jewelry from Silver and Sage in Arizona, Blush

underwear direct from Canada, Lipsmart, Havaianas flip flops,

Yoga design lab mats and accessories, their own label of Be On the

Lookout t-shirts, and much more. All merchandise is anti-sweat,

UVB/UVA protection, and anti-bacterial.


New collection from Liquido

74 | march 2020 |

Maria says the new collection for March is colorful and amazing!

The store has an exclusive one-of-a-kind Anthony Lent

jewelry line from New York. Anthony Lent is a high-end fine

silver, gold and platinum jewelry brand for men and women.

Anthony Lent has been handcrafting fine jewelry for 50 years,

based on sculptural creations. All the jewelry is manufactured

and designed in the US, and can be found exclusively at BOLO

- Be On the Lookout.

Besides having the best quality, the boutique store also

offers a unique shopping experience.

“What I find most rewarding about owning the store is

customer satisfaction. Seeing the customer come into the

store and have a fun, enjoyable experience, this is what it is all

about. We want our customers to enjoy shopping in our store.

We play great music and our staff is relaxed and always ready

to help our customers,” said Nelkin.

The owner has much experience in the retail business.

Hailing from Australia, she worked for Chanel and Christian

Dior. She then opened two boutiques in Italy, where she

manufactured her own line of products, before opening a

store in Miami. When she came to Delray Beach, she fell in love

with the town and decided to open BOLO and has changed the

concept of active wear in Delray Beach.

“We have had a positive impact on the street. We brought

something new to Atlantic Avenue that wasn’t here. Delray

Beach is really a casual beach town and people want to feel

comfortable but still want to look good,” she said.

Customers praise the owner and staff about their customer service.

“The staff are the best. Knowledgeable, respectful, and

make the customer feel like they are in their living room,” said

a happy customer.

Another customer described Bolo as a “Fashion forward

Boutique on the Ave! Great prices, super friendly staff!”

Be On the Lookout at the store for their new merchandise

and accessories so you can always look your best while on

Atlantic Avenue.

Delray Goes Cuckoo For Coco

By diane feen | photos by Andrew Patron - Delray Beach Open by

There was a buzz in the air at the Exhibition

Tennis match at the Delray Tennis Center

before opening day of the Delray Beach Open.

76 | march 2020 |

The line at the Ticket office snaked down the pavement, and the

bright lights cast a halo over Coco Gauff’s first appearance in

Delray after beating Venus Williams at Wimbledon.

To say that Coco has done well is an understatement. To say she is

the next tennis phenom is more appropriate. You could tell not only

by her miraculous wins at Wimbledon and the Australian Open, but

by the hysteria surrounding Coco’s appearance.

After a doubles match that pitted Johan Kriek and Vince Spadea

against Mikael Pernfors and Baghdatis, the seats began filling up. By

the time Coco was to set to play in center court almost every seat in

the stadium was filled – all 5,544.

The enormous showing (on a windy intermittent rainy day) was

not because it was the only female tennis match at the ATP but because

Coco was in the house. The 15-year-old Delray girl has become

a legend – one of victory, determination and talent.

Her opponent, Estela Perez-Somarriba, is the current NCAA champion

and a senior at University of Miami. The two volleyed so beautifully

that birds overhead must have wondered how a human could

send a ball in flight so majestically.

The game was riveting. Both girls were young and tenacious with

90-mile-per-hour serves and a voracious appetite for covering their

tennis turf. Balls that swiftly glided by the net had everyone in awe,

and each win for Coco seemed like a win for all 5,544 in attendance.

It was not a game of dueling swords, instead it was a fast-paced

reckoning of force between two compadres. It was Delray Beach -

Coco’s home turf. Which is why every time Coco scored a point loud

cheers rang out from the stands. It was Coco time and the thunder of

applause and nods filled the rarified air.

Though Perez-Somarriba had a cheering squad of her own, it

seemed like one big happy Coco family. And in a way it was. Coco’s

family came with her (mom Candi, dad Corey and brothers Codey

and Cameron) and for one hour and 30 minutes it felt like we were

all part of her extended family.

That’s just the way Coco wanted it. “It feels great to play in front of

family and friends. Also, the city of Delray has been supporting me

since the beginning. It was good to give them the chance to see me

play,” Coco told a reporter.

It sure was. After Coco’s victory, 6-3, 6-3, there was a ceremony with

local officials and a short autograph frenzy. As Coco left the stadium

everyone cheered and clapped for the 15-year-old hometown hero.

Cameras flashed and cell phones were whipped out in her direction.

Coco mania continued outside where she signed balls that were

tossed out randomly to the crowd. As everyone stood behind metal

gates vying for the right spot, it got a bit frenetic. For a moment it

seemed as though there was a rock star in the house – but the thunderous

chant was a distinct: “Coco…Coco…Coco!”

Far from the maddening crowd there were booths selling their

wares and giving out brochures. If you wanted a solar roof or a hoagie

you were in luck, but if you wanted to shake Coco’s hand, it was

a bit impossible.

What was not impossible was watching all the home-town glee.

“It was so exciting to watch a Delray Beach native, who learned to

play on these very courts, return to play and win tonight at her exhibition

match for the Delray Beach Open. The crowds were phenomenal,

and Coco didn’t disappoint,” said Mayor Shelly Petrolia, who

flipped a coin to see which player would serve first.

The mayor wasn’t the only person caught up in Coco mania.

City Commissioner Ryan Boylston saw the energetic sparks flying

over the courts too. “Coco brought out every corner of our community

and filled that stadium with the real true Delray Beach. It was an

incredible sight,” said the CEO and Founder of 2TON.

The exhibition was the first-ever women’s match at the Delray

Beach Open, and the first to have yellow rubber balls with lawyer

Lee Cohen’s image thrown out into the crowd.

Just a year ago not many people had heard of Coco Gauff. Though her

grandparents Yvonne and Eddie are fixtures in the educational system

and youth baseball, Coco was not a household name until last year.

It was after she qualified to play at Wimbledon (and beat Venus

Williams) that Coco mania was born. Now, at 15-years-old, Coco has

entered the rarified world of celebrities with one name like – Cher,

Madonna, Beyoncé and Drake.

She was not only the youngest tennis player to qualify for Wimbledon

in the Open era, but her matches were the most watched in the

US. And like her role models Serena and Venus Williams Coco has her

sights set on hitting the high notes of tennis royalty.

But, if you ask those who attended last month’s exhibition game, it

seems she already has. “Coco is so focused, poised and talented. I’ve

seen professional tennis players before, but Coco is a winner we’ll

see for many many years to come,” said Bob Antoville, pre-needs advisor

at Eternal Light Memorial Gardens.

Stephanie Seibel


My skill is



teams and


with people.

Leading with Dignity

Stephanie Seibel is at a

loss for words when asked

to describe herself. But

others in her orbit are not.

The CEO of Achievement Centers for Children & Families has

cleared a lot of brush to make a smooth landing for children

and families in Delray Beach.

Nancy Hurd created this epicenter of learning and love in Delray

and Seibel took the reins and is galloping forward.

One could say she had mighty shoes to fill.

But Seibel has risen to the challenge.

“Stephanie is driven to be the best she can be. She’s makes her

employees feel wanted, welcome; and with her help and encouragement

- to achieve even better results. Stephanie has succeeded beyond

even my great expectations,” said Tom Murphy, board member

for 26 years and former president of the board of ACCF.

To meet Seibel, you might mistake her for an exuberant intelligent

soccer mom. But looks can be deceiving.

Yes, she is a great mom. Her two teenage daughters are thriving.

Olivia is a talented singer and gymnast, and Makenzie models and

plays volleyball.

Both children – and her husband Dale – have duties relegated by

the calendar and not the full moon.

It makes one wonder, who is this petite woman with the engaging

eyes and perky personality?

“My skill is building strong teams and connecting with people.

I am also a good listener and I care about the people I work with,”

said Seibel, who was born in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania.

Seibel’s dad was a plastics engineer who moved the family

around Pennsylvania and Ohio a few times. She graduated from

Ohio University and went to graduate school at Slippery Rock University.

Looking for adventure she attended a job fair in Chicago and

ended up coming to South Florida.

Her first job in Florida was as Student Activities Coordinator at

Lynn University. From there she became the Event Services Coordinator

for Broward Center for the Performing Arts. But it was her position

as Associate Director at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

that opened her eyes to the world of non-profit work.

“I really enjoy working in non-profit organizations. You feel like

you’re contributing to the greater good of the community.”

You bet she does. Ask anyone who has worked with Seibel

and they will tell you how her passion is the underlayment for

a solid foundation. “Stephanie is a great person. She is goal oriented

and gives you space to perform your best. When she sets

her mind on something, she gets it done. She’s a terrific boss,”

said CFO Michel Gaber.

Seibel is the product of her past. She learned about coordinating

all the moving parts and building good teams at The Broward Center.

She credits that job with teaching her the importance of communication

and understanding other people’s perspectives.

And with 100 employees and a $5 million budget Seibel needs

to be nimble on her feet, yet contemplative and deliberate in her

actions. As CEO, she secured new government contracts and donations

of over $5 million. They also received funding for crisis and

economic stabilization and a teen-mentoring program.

But those accomplishments do not even scratch the surface of

her imprint on this village of veracity. Their family strengthening

program is pivotal in changing lives and is a hub for community

collaborations. She has made infrastructure upgrades for security,

databases, crisis response, IT and playground renovations.

With two satellite campuses and the main campus, the ACCF is

constantly buzzing with activity. Children are everywhere dancing,

drumming, studying and playing.

True to her humility and deference to a higher source, Seibel is

rare to take credit for much of it. “Our success is a reflection of the

talent and skills of our employees and team. People here are motivated

by a desire to help. My job is to coordinate the moving parts

and make sure they have what they need.”

And with a degree in psychology Seibel is a student of people

with a minor in empathy. In weekly meetings they share two sides

to the same coin of existence. “We start our meetings talking about

our personal best and business best. This helps build relationships.

It sure does. It also cements the teamwork in team. “You can often

judge the strength and quality of a leader by observing their team.

Stephanie has an amazing team who truly finds joy in what they do,

it is clear that they respect Stephanie at a very deep level. I see this

same dynamic from board members who are deeply committed to

Stephanie and the agency,” said Michael Neal, CEO of Kast Construction

and VP of the ACCF Board.

When it comes to the origin of her nature the tree has deep roots.

She inherited her father Jack’s work ethic and acts of selfless service

(he even renovated her home). Her grandfather, who owned an auto

repair and gas station, was notorious for his boisterous nature and

helpful countenance. And her mother Annette is a consummate volunteer

with a business degree.

“Growing up, my mom brought food and supplies for the classroom.

She would give supplies to the teachers for children who

didn’t have them. She was awarded the 2019 St. Jude’s Dream Home

Volunteer of the Year.”

It’s not easy to get this historical Seibel data. She seems to relish

sharing the lighter details of her existence. “I love to ride roller

coasters and explore cities with a lot of history – Savannah, St. Augustine,

Portland and Seattle.”

Though she is reluctant to talk about herself, others in the community

are effusive about her talent. “The pressure of keeping children

safe in today’s environment is enormous. Stephanie faces this challenge

every day with equanimity and incredible skill,” adds Murphy.

You could say Seibel embodies the words of John Maxwell. “Leadership

is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life

influencing another.”

Thank you Stephanie. Your path is strewn with silent awes and

loud cheers.

“True Love wAys” Turkey

Look no more. Ellie’s 50’s Diner is guaranteed to take you to

your happy place. If loneliness is an epidemic than Ellie’s is

what your doctor would prescribe to eliminate it.

It’s not just the black and white linoleum floors, jukebox and

poodle skirts. It’s the smiles, laughter and laidback atmosphere

that’s filled this restaurant with natural light (from the outside)

and a lightness of being on the inside.

It’s also a quiet force for the present with a historical past. For 29

years Ellie’s has been serving homemade comfort food that fills the

heart and the stomach. Many of their customers are regulars – and

proudly pronounce Ellie’s as the sweet spot in the gusty winds of life.

Folks like Bob Alsteen and his wife Janet. “We’ve been eating

here for 20 years and come twice a week for dinner and sometimes

breakfast. All the food is fantastic, and we love the home cooking,

especially the meatloaf and mashed potatoes,” said Bob, who is convinced

that eating at Ellie’s keeps you young.

On Tuesday nights Ellie’s becomes a throwback to summers in

Cape Cod. That’s because Tuesday night is Lobster Night. A time

when Easterners and Lobster lovers cross paths in their quest to

94 | march 2020 |

Ellie’s 50’s Diner

Good Food Good Vibes

Do you long for the good

old days? Want a place to

eat that will fill you with

joy and contentment?

1 1/2 lb Lobster on Tuesday Night Special

crack open the sweet meat of Maine Lobster. The dinner comes

with corn on the cob and red potatoes and seems to lighten up the

mood from 4:00pm on.

People like Jill Latorella, from Maine, is bullish on Ellie’s lobsters

and lobster night. “We are from Maine and these lobsters are

cooked perfectly. I come a couple of times a week and I like everything

here.” Her sister Debbie Madden is also devouring a lobster

and declares it “delicious.”

There is a reason why Ellie’s is packed to the rafters most

nights, especially on Tuesdays. The food is good, the service is excellent

and there are few owner-operated restaurants with homemade

food. Ellie and her husband Bob are often on the premises

to greet customers and make sure the culinary ship is sailing at

the right speed.

“Ellie’s has always been about family. We get choked up thinking

about the number of people the restaurant has touched over the

years. Bob and I are so thankful for our loyal guests and support

from the community,” said Ellie, who embodies the style and attitude

of the 50’s (a la Sandra Dee).


Blueberry Pie a le Mode “Only You” Meatloaf “I remember You” sAlmon Dinner

Ellie’s is open every day of the week with a full menu of favorites

that bring back the good old days. Their fresh Roasted Turkey

Breast (with stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce) is wonderful, and

Friday to Sunday nights they serve juicy Prime Rib with Potato, veggies

and soup.

Thursday is the perfect night to fulfill your BBQ Rib cravings.

You get a full rack of Ribs with a savory sauce, fries and homemade

coleslaw. Monday is Pot Roast day with potato, fresh vegetables and

soup, and all day Friday is Fish Fry Day.

Their homemade Meatloaf is wonderful – moist and tasty, and

their Burgers are made with fresh Ground Sirloin (with or without

cheese, bacon, mushrooms, homemade chili or cheddar cheese

and onions).

The variety of choices at Ellie’s will make you want to come every

day (some people do). Breakfast is served until 2pm and their selection

runs from fluffy buttermilk pancakes to savory French Toast

(with maple syrup, bacon, ham or sausage), Eggs Benedict or Eggs

Florentine with sautéed spinach and omelets.

Lunch is also a celebration at Ellie’s. The place is buzzing with retirees,

local businesspeople and tourists who come for the vibe and

the verve. The selection of homemade favorites includes: Turkey,

Ham, Swiss cheese and Russian dressing, and the Patti Melt (burger)

grilled with onion and cheese on rye and Burgers with toppings.

There are Pita sandwiches, (Cheesy Turkey, Veggie, Chicken or Tuna

Melt), Salads, homemade Soups, grilled specialties and Hoagies.

Whether you go to Ellie’s in the morning or evening you can dine

on their front patio, where the sun gleams from varying angles.

With a 50’s style seating and umbrellas, it’s a refreshing experience.

Part of that experience includes desserts such as ice cream (including

the world’s smallest hot fudge sundae), pies, cakes, homemade

brownies, milkshakes, egg creams and more.

They also cater wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, Bar and

Bat Mitzvahs, engagement parties, grand openings, fundraisers,

birthday parties, festivals and church functions.

But the ball really gets rolling in the Flamingo Room out back.

Each month (during season) is a live entertainment dinner show.

Last month was a Beatles Show and on March 13th is the popular

Neil Diamond tribute by Neil Zirconia. The show is electric with

wonderful music and includes buffet dinner, dessert and coffee. Ellies

also has a full liquor bar.

“You can eat here 30 days in a row and not eat the same thing

twice,” said owner Bob Smela, co-owner of Ellie’s with wife Ellie.

A lot has happened in their 29 years of cooking, catering and

culling together homemade dishes. It all started in 1982 when they

started Ellie’s Deli with take-out salads, sandwiches and meats.

They added lunch trucks that went around town selling food. After

eight years they opened Ellie’s 50’s Diner on Federal Highway.

Bob and Ellie have created a beautiful spot in the sun where

friendships are cherished, appetites are fulfilled, and family is front

and center. People go to Ellie’s from all over the globe and dine in

familiarity and splendor.

“It’s been 29 years, and we say ‘Thank You’ from the bottom of

our hearts. Without you none of this would have been possible.

Some of our customers come to eat here right from the airport. We

are honored to be part this tradition.”

BY Bill Piechocki and Dr. Diane Sudduth, DVM

What Are the True

Facts for A Healthy Pet?

Our daily challenges with any health issues are always to find

viable information to discern factual health plans. If you

have ever done a Google search for a health issue or question

about the best way to feed or treat your pet on the natural side,

it could drive you insane! Because of so much inaccurate information

out there, it can cause much confusion.

Our goal has always been to get our readers to think, question

and resolve the best health solutions for their pets. These solutions

involve your decisions on the foods and dietary decisions you have

made, the medical plans you decided on including heartworm and

flea prevention programs. It is imperative to understand that any

drugs prescribed are not a preventive program but a treatment for

a problem that your pet may potentially get.

We have seen effective results in doing alternative testing in revealing

improved health when we not only applied the real food

switch but also added very specific foods, herbs, and botanicals.

Tests for blood, hair and other newer technology verify that we are

entering a newer realm for pet health.

As professionals we also deal with obtaining the real facts. So

much of a Google search is about paid results for the source and

real factual information may be hidden because of financial interest.

We often dig deep into studies and articles, many from top veterinary

schools only to have them “disappear” in conjunction with

the appearance of grants and endowments from interested parties

such as pet food or pharmaceutical concerns.

Real healthy pets start with you the pet parent. We must take a

very proactive approach and believe with our eyes the results of

our efforts. That means we must possess an enhanced knowledge

of what healthy and normal are. Conditions such as vomiting and

diarrhea are not illness but rather housekeeping. Many times, it can

be a symptom of imbalances and toxins within the body. Food is the

transport vehicle for removing these harmful substances. It is not

the cause, but rather the body’s method of remedying an issue. We

need to look beyond the food to identify all the other factors and

behaviors that contribute to these conditions.

Did you ever wonder why if you walk your pet and suddenly, they

avoid a particular lawn or when you wash their bed, they won’t use

it? What has changed? Could it be the lawn chemicals that were

sprayed or an ingredient in your laundry detergent? Has your pet

ever seemed to be “off” after you gave them their monthly pill, topical

drops or latest injection? Did you do your homework to understand

why the body is reacting against these things?

We tend to believe labels, advertising, and advice that assure us

of safe and effective results but what does this really mean? Daily

we see advertising for medication that will “help” a condition that

is followed by a strong warning that says “may cause.” Why do

many only believe the “help” part and ignore or discount the “may

cause” part?

We have to remember that our pets communicate to us by their

body language and reactions, not through an understandable verbalization

like us. Research and learn what health and normal look

like. Question ingredients, warnings and reactions in the products

you use or give to them. Actions truly speak louder than words. Be

the best pet parent you can be.
