The two had been kind enough to play dress up re-enacting a scene from The Producers as part of a photo shoot I had helped to orchestrate at another magazine. The same thought that crossed my mind that day did so again last month when the renowned actor playwright first walked into the Ziff Ballet Opera House at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami for our Lifestyle cover shoot. Why does he look so effortlessly debonair in a tuxedo-- while I look like the emcee at a small-town beauty pageant My failings in black tie aside what I came to learn about McKeever--beyond his ability to make a dashing James Bond-like entrance--is that he s a genuine South Florida treasure someone whose talent continues to entertain educate and inspire. This month one of the seminal figures in tri-county theater history will debut his 25th original work After at the Arsht s Carnival Studio Theater. He s also traveling back and forth to New York in preparation for the off-Broadway premiere in 2017 of his 24th play Daniel s Husband a thought-provoking story about gay marriage in America that could very well become McKeever s first Broadway show. As a writer what s happening in the world can t help but have an impact on your work McKeever says. I m constantly being inspired and enraged by things that are happening on CNN on a nightly basis. You use that and you apply it to your art. It s a little indulgent to think that your play is going to change the world but if you can change a point of view--or make someone think about something that they hadn t considered two hours before the show--then to me that s a little victory. You have enough of those little victories and perhaps you make a small impact. Join us this month in celebrating McKeever and the other individuals featured in Lifestyle who do make an impact by challenging our perspectives with their spirit and creativity.

You re always looking for a centerpiece-- something that encapsulates an emotion that is too strong for words. Once that piece is found a program can be built around it. What can audiences expect from the upcoming season Previously Singing Sons has catered to what are known as family concerts. Those are concerts that incorporate all of our students from third grade to 12th grade they re programs that are really lovely. But they include our youngest musicians who are still learning music fundamentals. This year we ve created two programs that feature our advanced musicians (one in October one in March 2017). Although they re all Caption Caption still students they have a musical Caption Caption understanding at a collegiate level or advanced. ... We still will perform two family concerts in December and in May which will include the younger musicians. How does being in the choir impact members When we perform a piece of music we re not just talking about the right vowels the right notes and singing in tune we re talking about the emotional quality of the piece the textual quality and we re interpreting it. For me music is something that is intangible these little vibrations in the air that connect in some way. Everyone has an emotional response to music sometimes they can describe it and sometimes they can t but it s always very powerful. So for students to explore that increases their emotional intelligence and their academic intelligence. --KEREN MOROS Just the Right Key The Singing Sons bring mesmerizing choral music to South Florida Brett Karlin B rett Karlin has nothing against orchestras but his experience during the past year as the artistic director of the Broward County-based Florida Singing Sons has taught him that he s fortunate to direct choirs. As chorale musicians we re luckier than orchestras or bands because we really get to communicate multiple layers of a message through using the text whether it s English or another language Karlin says. And that together with harmony that together with a beautifully tuned chord or a certain progression of notes and chords in a melody is really exquisite. Karlin works with upward of 120 singers combined--all boys and young men ages 8 to 18--in the organization s four choirs. The result is not only beautiful music for audiences but a life-altering experience for the members who have toured Spain France and the United Kingdom. Choral music is an artwork that requires teamwork that requires absolute commitment that requires taking your own desires and needs and putting them aside for the greater good of the community he says. Karlin who also serves as artistic director for the all-adult Master Chorale of South Florida shares more about the Singing Sons upcoming season with Lifestyle. How do you program a new season I sit with a large amount of literature--new literature that s being composed as well as more classical literature that I think is important for students and audience members to be exposed to. I ll usually try to find one to two anchor pieces. This October we have a concert series based off one piece called Dear Sarah. It s a Civil War letter from a private named Sullivan Ballou who writes to his wife knowing that he s headed into a battle in which he will most likely die. ... There s a musical setting of it by a composer named James Syler that s about seven minutes and it is unbelievably beautiful. It acknowledges death and renewal and an acceptance of death and a celebration of it as a part of life. The Florida Singing Sons perform Requiem Songs of Loss and Renewal at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts on Oct. 14 at 7 30 p.m. For tickets and information about the upcoming season visit singingsons.org or call 954.563.2697.

The details Triton has introduced its 1650 3 LP billed as the world s lightest personal submarine (at 8 800 pounds and less than 6 feet tall). It carries a pilot and two passengers and features Triton s trademark acrylic sphere which juts from the top and bottom of the vehicle giving passengers a sweeping view. No need to cut an underwater adventure short--the 1650 3 LP can stay submerged for up to 12 hours. To give owners the most from their water toy the price tag includes training for the owner and yacht crew. Crew members also learn how to coordinate dive excursions so budding Cousteaus can explore ocean depths. Cabins are climate- and temperature-controlled and an integrated sound system can provide the perfect soundtrack. For those who want their submarine to be as comfortable as their boat Triton is looking to offer luxury interiors.

I started skating at age 3 my brothers were already playing hockey at 4 says Smith who grew up in Toronto. My dad gave me a choice If I wanted to play hockey at 4 it was my decision if I wanted to play at 5 it was his. So I decided to take that year off [at age 4] he quips. I had some other things I needed to take care of before I laced up the skates for good. The delay of game did nothing to stunt his hockey growth. Two decades later the 25-year-old is living the life of Reilly here in South Florida. Fresh off a 25-goal season in his first year with the Panthers--and a teamhigh eight points during the squad s first-round playoff series loss to the New York Islanders--Smith signed a five-year contract extension worth a reported 25 million. It was one of several offseason moves that have Florida fans itching for this month s start to the 2016-17 National Hockey League campaign. It feels like we re building something here Smith says of a franchise that hasn t made consecutive playoff appearances since 1996 and 97. The same can be said for Smith who is finally planting some NHL roots after being shipped around early in his career. The 6-foot 185-pounder played briefly with the Dallas Stars coming out of Miami (Ohio) University before being traded to the Boston Bruins in 2013. Two years later the Bruins dealt Smith to the Panthers. It s nice to find a home hopefully I can spend the entire contract here says Smith whose brother Brendan plays defense for the Detroit Red Wings. (His oldest brother Rory is a defenseman in the National Lacrosse League). Our fan base is building and we have a lot of really good pieces on this team. We can do something special. Smith spoke more about his hockey journey with Lifestyle Did you get a sense of how much last season meant to the fans given the franchise s history Absolutely especially because of all the rats being thrown on the ice. I know that s something that started [during the 1996 season] when the team had its Stanley Cup run. It s a little quirky--and the first couple of times honestly I wasn t really expecting it--but it s nice to see that there s so much passion. We had some success last year but we re obviously looking for more this year. How long does a series loss like last year s to the Islanders stay with you It s extremely frustrating. You play 82 games in a regular season to get to a point like that you give yourself homeice advantage and then you lose a series that you feel you should have won. It was probably a month or two before I started thinking about hockey again you want to take some time to free everything from your brain. But it s a challenge. On a personal level you had a breakout season last year. Why do you think everything came together for you with the Panthers I was fortunate to be put in a great situation. I was playing with outstanding linemen and I was given ice time that exceeded my own expectations. When the team as a whole is firing on all cylinders it s easy to pick up on that momentum. Last year was a great stepping-stone for me personally but I m setting the bar higher. Do you compare notes about teams and players with your brother during the offseason--the way that Peyton and Eli Manning used to do We do talk and reminisce about the past season it s definitely not on the level of Peyton and Eli. But that s what s great about having an older brother in the league. He s a great sounding board and I m fortunate to have that. Did your brothers go easy on you when you were kids We played a lot of hockey--there were lots of games in the basement. ... And yes I was the punching bag for sure. If you have a chance to slam Brendan into the boards when florida plays detroit are you doing it--or do you pull back We ve gone after each other a little bit over the years. We have a great relationship but once the puck drops there s not much love lost. Is any of that payback for those games in the basement Absolutely.

For Your Parking Pleasure SAWGRASS MILLS UNVEILS A PRIME SPACE THAT COMES WITH POTENTIAL HOLIDAY PERKS BY KEVIN KAMINSKI I t s no secret that the search for a good parking spot at Sawgrass Mills in Sunrise can turn into one of Nicolas Cage s National Treasure plots depending on the day and time.

He was staring at a twoyear protocol of oral and injected chemotherapy. His hair was falling out. And he couldn t play sports. It almost was too much for a 9-year-old boy to handle. Then one day during treatment at Joe DiMaggio Children s Hospital he left his bed to speak to another child. He noticed that the conversation cheered up the young cancer patient. Before long he was bringing magic cards to the hospital and doing tricks for other children. The more he did for others the better CJ started feeling his mother Dawn says. He wasn t throwing up as much. He wasn t as weak. I asked him about it. I think the secret to getting through a [chemo] trial he said is to focus on others. Eight years later CJ now 17 and cancer-free continues to focus on those facing adversity and illness serving as a spokesperson and ambassador for Hollywood-based Joe DiMaggio--as well as the Georges own nonprofit Children Battling Cancer a foundation that supports the families of such patients by delivering gifts during the holidays and helping to pay medical and monthly bills. (Visit facebook.com CJGeorgespeaks.) As I ve gotten older I ve realized that everybody goes through something says CJ in his senior year of home schooling. A lot of times you can t see it. They could be struggling with depression being bullied at school or their family situation isn t great. ... It s so important to think about other people and not just yourself. That s what helped me get through cancer treatment. That CJ would deliver hundreds of speeches all over the country in the past decade--addressing nonprofits medical researchers and politicians including a visit to Capitol Hill at age 12--is a miracle in itself Dawn says. He was so riddled with anxiety in elementary school that he couldn t stand in front of his classmates without having a panic attack. CJ overcame his nerves enough to give a keynote at age 10 during Joe DiMaggio s Circle of Friends fundraiser. Leukemia Lymphoma Society soon called followed by an invite to speak from the Florida Panthers. On that day CJ threw up in the car. Instead of canceling he shared the story with the team no child he said should feel that sick from chemotherapy. It was the first time that I really spoke from the heart. Hockey would become CJ s favorite sport. As soon as doctors removed his chemo port at age 12 he started taking skating lessons. Today CJ plays defense on the Junior Panthers travel team in Coral Springs. It makes sense Dawn says. CJ has always been a protector. 44 OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2016 45 Treating Fracture and Trauma Injuries M. LEE EBERSBERGER Orthopedic Surgeon Trauma Fracture Care PAUL I.

In midMay the theater company he co-founded Zoetic Stage opened Harold Pinter s Betrayal at the Adrienne Arsht Center in Miami which with a set designed by McKeever became the best-selling play in the company s history. The same week McKeever began an acting run in The Book Club Play an ensemble comedy- drama at Actors Playhouse in Coral Gables. And later in the month his 24th original play Daniel s Husband opened at Island City Stage in Fort Lauderdale. A year later the play took home three statuettes at the annual Carbonell Awards which spotlight excellence in South Florida theater in a live ceremony co-produced by--you guessed it--McKeever. It must not be easy being the busiest man in South Florida s show business but he makes it look like it is. Where others might juggle commitments and inevitably drop a few of them McKeever tackles each writing acting and design job separately with a sniper s focus not letting other projects enter the bubble until he s done. He seems uniquely immune to pressure whether it s to meet his cascading deadlines or to perennially top his own work--a reputation that peaked with Daniel s Husband a work of communal humor and heartbreaking dramatic richness that will enjoy its off-Broadway premiere in 2017. OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM On any given day I ve got three ideas that are on a conveyer belt in the back of my head. that one sucks well it sucks. You make the play as good as you can and move on to the next job. McKeever 54 shares a Davie home with his husband Zoetic Stage artistic director Stuart Meltzer and their manic Boston terrier China. The black-and-white checkerboard flooring reflects McKeever s lively personality. Framed playbills from his 20 years of South Florida premieres hang on the walls and his eight Carbonell awards (seven for writing one for acting) sit on bookshelves. As always McKeever s plate is full starting with the October opening at the Arsht Center of his next world premiere After in which he also stars. His second premiere this season Finding Mona Lisa opens in 2017. More loom down the pike including Red White Black and Blue a provocative thriller about a presidential assassination that he unveiled at a reading earlier this year at Florida Atlantic University. On any given day I ve got three ideas that are on a conveyer belt in the back of my head he says. I ll sit on the patio on Sunday morning with the New York Times and just skim. Maybe I ll read about something that s happening in South Africa and it ll put a little spark back there. McKeever who grew up in a middle-class Italian household in North Miami Beach began his playwriting career with the same objective as most budding scribblers to write what he knew. An advertising and design graduate from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale McKeever worked as a graphic designer for WSVN-Channel 7 and then as an art director for Ventures a Miami film production studio where he designed commercials. When the studio suffered an exodus of writers McKeever jumped in to fill the role and found he had a knack for realistic dialogue. At 30 he quit the job to WHAT S NEXT Expect two McKeever world premieres this season After (Oct. 27 Nov. 13 at Carnival Studio Theater inside the Arsht Center 1300 Biscayne Blvd. Miami 305.949.6722) explores the unexpectedly uplifting fallout of a Newtown-style national tragedy by following the lives of two grieving families a year after the massacre. Finding Mona Lisa (July 12 Aug. 13 at Actors Playhouse 280 Miracle Mile Coral Gables 305.444.9293) is a series of playlets whose main character is the painting of the title--from the moment of its creation to its cameo installation at the Louvre. McKeever outside the Carnival Studio Theater. Opening spread Inside the Ziff Ballet Opera House I use Michael Jackson as my reference McKeever says. I read this in Rolling Stone and it stayed with me all these years When Thriller came out and sold 10 million copies he pasted that number on his bathroom mirror. And he saw it every morning when he woke up and said I have to top 10 million. Can you imagine My take is really basic. It s always been the same You finish one project you move on to the next one. If that one s getting picked up here and there that s wonderful And if pursue playwriting. The first play he wrote That Sound You Hear was inspired by a tumultuous breakup with a girlfriend which coincided with the landfall of Hurricane Andrew. Miami s New Theatre picked it up in 1996. He quickly rose to prominence as one of the region s most producible playwrights winning five Carbonells for best new work from 1998 to 2008 mostly on the strength of deftly written comedies. One of those comedies a frothy historical farce called Suite Surrender would become his most successful work to date earning some 800 productions worldwide from community theaters to colleges and high schools. McKeever is quick to point out however that critics panned its world premiere at the former Caldwell Theatre in Boca Raton. He s proud of his earlier work but knew he still had artistic corners to turn. LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2016 57 Michael always had a talent for writing great dialogue and great scenes but his upbeat personality caused his early plays to be almost Pollyanna-like says Joseph Adler artistic director of GableStage. He tended to tie things up neatly and eschewed ambiguity leaving the audience feeling good about themselves. His plays have matured enormously over the years--culminating with a masterful play like Daniel s Husband. McKeever sees 2011 s Stuff at the Caldwell as his first major turning point. An ambitious biographical play about the lives of the Collier Brothers--the country s first hoarders circa 1929--the play still had a lot of the grace that I liked putting in there but at the same time there was some real emotion and real soul-searching he says. Clark Gable Slept Here which Zoetic produced in 2014 was his next career touchstone. A coffin-black satire on Hollywood artifice the play addressed the closeted homosexuality that still exists in the movie business. For the first time I wrote a comedy that wasn t based on setting up runs--one two three and now the laugh he says. I wanted to tell a great story and make a statement with the story. And the last step was Daniel s Husband which is where I took so much of myself and threw it onstage without even thinking about it. Premiering almost concurrently with the Supreme Court s landmark ruling on marriage equality the play explores the issue through the microcosm of a gay couple--one who rejects the traditions of marriage and the other who vehemently wants to wed because we can now. When a tragedy bisects the play it shifts the skeptic s perspective. The play speaks to the humanity in all of us says Antonio Amadeo who starred in the premiere. Life is short and unpredictable. We should cherish the people we love and we should fight for the rights of everyone to be able to live their lives with dignity and equality. I will forever be grateful to Michael for letting me bring that character to life. Its effect on me was profound. McKeever s acting has matured concurrently with his writing. Last year he earned a Carbonell nod for his sensitive performance in Picnic at Palm Beach Dramaworks. Two years earlier he took best-actor gold for his role in the Holocaust drama The Timekeepers at Island City Stage in which he was cast against type as a downbeat homophobic horologist fixing the watches of Jewish victims in a Nazi labor camp. Before that directors cast him mostly in what he calls witty charming put-him-in-a-tuxedo parts. In other words they told him to play himself and there are worse crosses to bear. Besides being a great actor he s such a sweet man says Amadeo who shared a stage with McKeever this year in GableStage s It s Only a Play. People that talented aren t always a joy to work with but he is and the backstage experience is full of laughter and camaraderie. He is that guy--multi-talented funny kind intelligent-- and he can do like 300 pushups.

The Boat Show offers its share of visuals. 4GREEN APPROACH The boating industry is trying to reduce its carbon footprint so look for lots of new technology that takes an environmental approach to boating. Columbus Yachts 40M sport hybrid is making its U.S. debut here. The engine is ecofriendly and the boat s weight has been reduced with special materials. Its woods are certified as sustainable by the Forest Stewardship Council and the leather comes from the meat industry rather than harvested merely for the seats. 5FISH TALES Monte Carlo Yachts Celebrity speakers Chris Gillette of Animal Planet s Gator Boys and Manny Puig host of Outdoor Channel s Savage Wild will be swapping stories with visitors at The Blue Wild Watersports and 62 OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM 7 GETTING AROUND Park the car and use transportation services.

Enjoy the show LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2016 63 I shot Sista Idya who s an artist behind her apartment in Lauderhill. She s a very spiritual so regal. Sista Idya Lifestyle Susan Buzzi honors the journey of local breast cancer survivors with her poignant portraits of strength and courage BY KEVIN KAMINSKI Candid Camera She s photographed a woman diagnosed in her last trimester of pregnancy who underwent six months of chemotherapy and a double mastectomy after delivering her child. She s accompanied patients during prosthesis fittings and reconstructive surgeries one of which prompted a nurse to stand next to her with smelling salts just in case. She s trained her lens on subjects as young as 25 and as old as 99--some with hair several without. It s a been an unexpected professional journey that has left photographer Susan Buzzi humbled and inspired by the indomitable spirit of some 400 South Florida breast cancer survivors that she has captured on film--her choice for its richness compared to digital photography--during the past nine years. Every person is different says the Tamarac resident. But they re all so determined to be fearless in some way. They re all fighters. ... Somebody has to be their advocate. I try to be that warrior for them. 64 OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM Back in the summer of 2008 Buzzi was just a photographer with a looming deadline. She had received a grant from the nonprofit Susan G. Komen organization to orchestrate an exhibition at Broward County Main Library around breast cancer awareness she had less than three months to find her subjects photograph them and stage the show. Buzzi reached out to support groups doctors hospitals and imaging centers not knowing how her vision for the project would be received. When the exhibit of riveting portraits opened (in those days Buzzi shot everything in black and white) the emotional response overwhelmed her. People were laughing crying celebrating she says. Once I started down this road I couldn t stop. Over the past decade Buzzi has staged annual October exhibitions throughout the region as part of Breast Cancer Awareness month but this year she returns to the Main Library (Gallery Six)--one of two Buzzi shows running simultaneously in Broward County. The adventure she shares has prompted her to embark on her own journey. Buzzi is now a certified coach practitioner of healing arts which she administers to cancer patients at-risk youth incarcerated individuals and any person or group that can benefit from expressive art therapy. I have a different perspective on everything--my psychological welfare my physical well-being she says. Every survivor I ve met has helped to transform me. I feel like my responsibility to them and the privilege of photographing them grows deeper and deeper each year. I ve known Janet for many years she s an artist and a three-year survivor. Her latest phase was doing birdcages and I wanted to photograph her in that element. Susan Buzzi Janet RESILIENT WOMEN Susan Buzzi s large-format images of breast cancer survivors will be on display at two Broward County locations during much of October. Gallery Six at Broward County Main Library (100 S.

She said Did you know I m a 40-year survivor And I still drive. She s one of those magical people you meet along the way. Some people talk about it some don t. Valerie completed her radiation over the past year and only now is ready to talk about it. She s so effervescent. I made her sit in that pink chair because she s just one of those colorful people. Valerie 66 OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM Susanne came to a show last year she wanted so much to meet the other survivors. She had had a double mastectomy. I photographed her a few days later in color at the beach which started my journey into color images. Susanne Ava has had nine surgeries all connected to an original breast cancer diagnosis. Her mother was diagnosed at the same time she died. Ava is a force to be reckoned with so full of energy. I don t know where she gets it but she needs to bottle it. Ava and husband Richard Margie (photographed with her oncologist Janet Nguyen-Sperry) was photographed. I ve followed her through four re-occurrences of breast cancer. She s one of the most positive women I know. Margie LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2016 67 What I Did Comedian Sarah Silverman dishes on her moment in the political spotlight-- and her harrowing week in the ICU BY KEVIN KAMINSKI It should have come as no surprise that Sarah Silverman would steal the show at the Democratic National Convention. The Emmy Award-winning comedian has been dropping jaws for nearly 25 years with confrontational no-holds-barred comedy all delivered with a pitchperfect mix of sarcasm and sweetness. But for all the buzz generated by her offthe-cuff comment at the podium this July in Philadelphia--when the ardent Bernie Sanders supporter told the vocal Bernie or Bust contingent You re being ridiculous --the real lifealtering experience for Silverman happened less than a month earlier. On the eve of her Oct. 15 appearance at Hard Rock Live--her Boca-based father and stepmom along with 10 000 of their friends will be at the show--the 45-year-old actress writer and acclaimed stand-up talks to Lifestyle about the convention as well as the illness this summer that nearly killed her. 68 OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM you had emergency surgery in july. What is epiglottitis It was an abscess at the top of my epiglottis [blocking] my windpipe. I had a sore throat I can t even believe I went to the doctor. He looks at it and goes Oh you re going to the emergency room right now. He performed surgery that night. It was risky like I may not have made it. The abscess is filled with toxic poison basically so not even a drop could go down my throat. It was really scary for my loved ones but I was on drugs so I wasn t as scared. What was the scene like inside the arena that night The crowd at that point was quite fired up. It was total chaos. To a degree it represents people to another degree the people on the floor of conventions tend to be a bit fringe. Yes there are people who represent every state and that s great. It s also people with big Styrofoam hats covered with pins. The Bernie or Bust people are not the majority of people inspired by Bernie Sanders. So due to the medication you were out of it for about five days They couldn t put me to sleep completely because my blood pressure is too low. So I was just kind of awake and on drugs. They also had to [restrain me] when you have a breathing tube and you re conscious--and you re on drugs and don t understand what is happening--you try to pull it out. So they had to tie my hands down. My first thought was that I d been captured by ISIS. My sister would [calm me down and say] Sweetie When did you realize that You re being ridiculous had become as big as it became I guess when I saw how the internet blew up. It s funny I spend a few solid days on the speech and then my five minutes has to be cut to two. And then I finish and the set-up for Paul Simon s musicians isn t ready so the stage manager goes Stretch You know it s not like I had everything I cut out [from the original speech] at the tip of my fingers. There are always going to be people mad at someone who speaks out in any way. I m not for everyone I m the first one to tell you that. I speak what I believe. you re OK. You had surgery. I d fall asleep wake up feel [the restraints]--and the whole thing would repeat again. It was traumatic but the doctors saved my life. Is there a risk of this happening again It would be really insane if it ever happened again. It was a perfect storm of random bacteria. Looking back I feel it was somewhere between St. Louis and Kansas City I was on tour and flying every day. There are a lot of germs that you walk through and touch. I don t want to scare people into thinking they re going to die from a sore throat. It was just a rare odd thing that happened. And then I just reacted in the moment to the crowd. Grown people screaming at each other. I don t know what they were holding on to. The fundamentalists of any sect whether political or religious tend to be extreme. I don t know what their long game was. Why wouldn t they vote for Hillary for Bernie s sake For the continuation of this movement Bernie is amazing. I would have loved to have him as president. But I don t feel a loss. I just wish I could have seen him in a cross-party debate. The people who change the world are almost never the president. After the incident you wrote on Facebook about the paralyzing realization and the motivating revelation that nothing matters. What did you mean Life is precious but there s nothing you can do about it. It can make you paralyzed or it can make you totally free or fearless. I waver between the two. SARAH SILVERMAN LIVE When Oct. 15 8 p.m. Where Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino What Expect an evening of original material from Silverman whose career is as hot as ever.

Didn t you draw a picture of a penis for one of your nurses Yes I was drawing [them]. I have no memory of it. Zero. Not that it s the highest form of comedy. But I like it. By the time you got to the Democratic Convention were you still feeling weak That was three weeks out of the ICU. I mean I clean up well I had a pound of makeup on and I pulled it together.

You are missing a big opportunity if your company is not engaging customers and potential clients using video. Facebook has doubled its daily video views to 8 billion and Snapchat has reached the 6 billion mark. Video will account for 80 percent of global Internet traffic by 2020 according to a study by digital benchmarking firm L2. Any business can utilize this medium to showcase its products and services and to demonstrate its expertise in a way that is more compelling than simple text. Video entertains engages connects and leads consumers to take action. One study concluded that consumers were 64 percent more likely to buy a product on an online retail site after watching a video. And according to Forbes Insight 59 percent of senior executives said they d prefer to watch a video than read text. If you spend any time on social media you know that most of the posts that have the highest engagement contain some sort of footage either something professionally prepared or created on a smartphone. At our PR agency we are doing video work more than ever before providing content for clients websites social media pages and YouTube channels. The time and cost to produce online clips is going down and the returns are going up. How can you use video to promote your business or firm Here are six tips to get you thinking 1. Provide expert advice. Translate your deep knowledge of a field or subject into short interviews. They give you credibility and build trust with customers and prospects. 2. Demonstrate your product or service. Video is much more effective than photos to show first-hand what you do and how you do it. For example if your business is selling a high-tech security program you can demonstrate its features and advantages though images and narration. 3. Make an emotional connection. Many of today s videos make people laugh or pull at their heart strings. Hook a viewer with a story that engages their thoughts and feelings and they re more likely to become a customer or client. 4. Share success stories. Do you have a client or customer who will say that your business contributed to its success Why not tell that story in a video A thirdparty referral carries greater weight than an ad or promotion. 5. Broadcast events. With simple online software such as Facebook Live and Periscope you need only a smartphone or tablet to bring potential clients to your events. TODD TEMPLIN Vice President Boardroom Public Relations 1776 N. Pine Island Road Suite 320 Fort Lauderdale 33322 954-370-8999 ttemplin boardroompr.com BoardroomPR.com 6. Showcase your employees. People do business with people they like. Video gives your company or firm an opportunity to showcase the personalities of your top employees. Getting into video can be as simple as using your smartphone or tablet. To look more professional set up a small production studio in your office. You can purchase a green screen video camera lights microphones and a teleprompter for about 2 000. You ll also need someone an employee or freelancer to record and edit the videos.

Throughout my tenure on the Board of Commissioners I have been committed to raising public awareness about breast cancer and have worked hard to contribute to the growth of Memorial Cancer Institute. I am also proud to have been instrumental in the creation of Memorial Breast Cancer Center which offers breast cancer patients all the services they need under one roof. The center features an outstanding staff of breast cancer specialists and a dedicated team of patient navigators who guide breast cancer patients from diagnosis to survivorship. This discovery to recovery and beyond approach offers our patients the full range of rehabilitation and supportive care services to help them be stronger against cancer. Memorial Breast Cancer Center also provides patients easy access to other care that can contribute to positive cancer outcomes. One example is Memorial Integrative Medicine which addresses the medical emotional environmental and social factors that can have an impact on a breast cancer patient s overall health. The program combines mainstream treatments with supplementary therapies such as acupuncture massage nutrition and mindfulness. Cancer survivors learn how to develop and maintain the positive lifestyle habits that can help them live healthfully after cancer. Additionally Memorial Breast Cancer Center offers the type of leading-edge technology that in the past residents of South Florida had to travel miles to obtain. One of these is the SAVI SCOUT a non-wire non-radioactive surgical guidance system that can localize cancer lesions with greater accuracy. Placed inside the breast up to 30 days prior to surgery this tiny 12-millimeter localization device can with no discomfort to the patient help ensure that our surgeons can remove the smallest-required portion of tissue. Memorial was the first clinical center in Florida and the second in the United States to offer the SAVI SCOUT and has performed more than 200 such procedures to date. Soon we will open a clinical trial to extend the time period for implantation of the device to up to 365 days prior to surgery thus providing more treatment options for breast cancer patients who are for example receiving chemotherapy before surgery. The SAVI SCOUT is just one of the many new and effective approaches that Memorial Breast Cancer Center uses to fight cancer. Other tools include brachytherapy which offers a shortened (five-day) duration of radiation therapy for patients our newest Fast MRI breast protocols that help provide the fastest most accurate diagnoses in the least amount of time and our continuing commitment to using low-dose 3D mammography which detects 40 percent more killer cancers. I am not just a long-serving member of the South Broward Hospital District s Board of Commissioners I am also someone whose family has a history of breast cancer so I know how important it is to remain vigilant against this disease. I am proud that so many outstanding opportunities for breast cancer care are available for women right here in South Florida. This National Breast Cancer Awareness Month I encourage you to be attentive to your breast health -- and should you need someone on your side in the fight against breast cancer look no further than Memorial.

LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2016 83 D I N I N G spotlight Chanson Restaurant brings Hollywood flair and world-class cuisine to the Deerfield Beach culinary scene BY MICHELLE F. SOLOMON Splendor on the Beach T 84 here are 12 rooms inside Royal Blues Hotel in Deerfield Beach but there s another penthouse with ocean views that is never rented to guests. Penthouse I is reserved for the property s owner Hollywood producer Edward Walson who had intentions of building a private property on the land but opted to share his love of the finer things in life with a select clientele. The Royal Blues and its Chanson Restaurant have the designation of being the first Relais & Chateaux hotel in Florida part of only about 500 high-end boutique hotels and gourmet restaurants in the world. What does that mean The criteria are stringent and have to pass R&C s five C s character calm charm courtesy and cuisine. Regarding this cuisine Chanson is more than fine dining--it s refined dining. This is a place where a longtapered candle isn t lit until guests are seated where napkins bear tags from Frette (maker of exquisite French linens) and where Badoit the renowned French sparkling bottled water is chilled in a Champagne bucket next to the table. Executive chef Michael Schultz--who for almost a decade was the private chef to The Sixth Sense writer and director M. Night Shyamalan--focuses on food that is organic and sustainable and creating it with sophisticated flair. Schultz is chummy when he mentions Night talking about multimillion-dollar deals being brokered over farmto-table dinners he created at the director s sprawling country estate outside of Philadelphia. OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM Where 45 NE 21st Ave. Hours Breakfast and lunch daily 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. dinner Tuesday to Saturday 5 30 to 9 30 p.m. Contact 954.857.2929 royalblueshotel.com chanson_ restaurant It s much the same relationship Schultz has with Walson. They share the same mission for the intimate restaurant--to create a Le Bernardin-style spot in South Florida. (Le Bernardin is New York s shrine to sophisticated food and often mentioned among the world s best.) The staff says Walson has plenty of input into his restaurant and you can frequently find him dining there when he s in town. In fact Walson is in the process of buying a farm about 20 miles west of the restaurant where only organic vegetables and fruits will be grown just for Chanson. A tasting menu Schultz created for the evening started with fresh ceviche. When the chef wanted to learn authentic preparation of ceviche three years ago he went to the Miraflores district in Lima Peru--the place to train in the art of creating the mixed-seafood dish. On this particular evening he had found the freshest Key West yellowtail enhancing it with a lime marinade allowing it to burst with flavor and an authentic Florida flair. Krystal Kinney is Chanson s sommelier and her wine selections are as particularly perfect as the food. The 800-bottle collection is mostly composed of organic wines. When I inquired about what I thought was an incredible French ros she had paired with my second course Kinney said it was an Oregonian orange despite its pink appearance. The wine is made from grapes not oranges. It requires an elaborate production process so it is in short supply. CHANSON RESTAURANT Opposite page Scallops with curried lentils. Above Deconstructed Key lime pie It s just one of many delightful finds at Chanson. The wine was served with scallops which were superb but even more delectable were the curried lentils underneath with fresh watercress chanterelle mushrooms and caramelized pistachios. Next up was Schultz s upscale riff on downhome shrimp and grits a coconut-butter poached spiny lobster atop organic grits. For the main course an intensely marbled Wagyu beef served medium rare with small heirloom potatoes and black mustard made from scratch. A deconstructed dessert was inspired by Key lime pie--an olive oil sponge cake with lime mousse and berries alongside passion fruit sorbet. A graham cracker usually used as pie crust sat away from the cake itself and was meant for dipping. Kinney offered another surprise--a dessert wine from Oregon. Dessert wines can be too sweet for some palates but this soft Pinot Noir certified organic was the perfect accompaniment. Leaving the restaurant I noticed something I hadn t seen on the way in despite its size--a 1 500-gallon saltwater aquarium mounted in the restaurant s ceiling. The aquarium s edges connect to the terrace pool outside so swimmers can dive underwater to get a look at the fish in the tank up close. Chanson and the Royal Blues Hotel--a Deerfield Beach gem chockfull of exquisite surprises. LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2016 85 D I N I N G what s cooking Put a Fork In It THE LITTLE CHALET DELIVERS ROBUST EURO-STYLE FONDUE--BY WAY OF BRAZIL--TO ITS SOUTH FLORIDA CUSTOMERS STORY BY KEVIN KAMINSKI PHOTOS BY EVELYN ROBLES I Owner Ricky Marcellini t s been 37 years since Ricky Marcellini s father opened a piano bar in Belo Horizonte Brazil next door to the eclectic store owned by Ricky s mother that sold furniture pots pans frames and other home goods. Initially the piano bar didn t serve food. As the story goes customers pointed to the fondue pots that were part of the decor and urged Ricky s father to start putting them to better use. Before long the national dish of Switzerland was all the rage in Brazil thanks to The Little Chalet which turned fondue into a culinary art form in Belo Horizonte and S o Paulo. By 1997 the next generation of Marcellinis (Ricky and his brother) had taken over the family business--but the beloved restaurant wasn t done conquering new lands. Anxious to move his family (wife Carol and daughter Nina) out of the hectic urban scene in S o Paulo and to the United States Ricky began scouting places in South Florida to open The Little Chalet. He settled on Boca Raton for its upscale audience as well as its proximity to Miami (he travels to Brazil for one week each month to help oversee the family s restaurants nightclubs and catering business). More than that Ricky saw an opportunity to create a different kind of dining experience. What I notice in the States is that after dinner the server wants you to move on and go home he says. Here we want you to stay and enjoy the night. We re seeing guests stay two three hours at a table. And for good reason. The first stateside Little Chalet (485 S. Federal Highway 561.325.8000 thelittlechalet.com) is drawing raves for its cozy whimsical Old World ambience--Ricky s mother handled the interior decorating--the charms of its staff the sweet sounds of its piano player and a menu of appetizers pastas and entr es that celebrates the flavors of Europe (think French mussels Italian chipotle chicken sausage risotto Swiss filet mignon filled with prosciutto and Catupiry cheese). Then of course there s the fondue--three cheese offerings which many diners count as their appetizer a filet mignon-only entr e and the requisite to-die-for chocolate dessert fondue. An ongoing favorite however is the aptly named Royal Chalet a fondue for two that features cubes of filet mignon slices of chicken breast and tiger shrimp--ready to be speared and bathed in a pot of piping-hot red wine consomm and then dipped into one of seven made-from-scratch sauces. Ricky shares some of the secrets of this popular dish. 86 OCTOBER 2016 LMGFL.COM 1.

D I N I N G the dish BY BECKY RANDEL Tuna poke from One Door East When One Door Opens ... It s perhaps the most highly anticipated Broward restaurant opening this year. One Door East a new concept from popular chef Giovanni Rocchio is already drawing raves for its globally inspired tapas. Rocchio s second restaurant located next to his award-winning Valentino Cucina Italiana (literally one door east) features sharing-sized plates such as tuna poke with red onion hijiki and tosazu eggplant fries with buttermilk honey and chili pepper smoked pork ribs and crackling shrimp with sweet chili sauce. Larger dishes--such as red snapper with mussels zucchini eggplant red curry coconut and lemongrass and a wood-grilled burger with tomatillo jam and smoked pepper aioli--round out the offerings. Rocchio has partnered with Elke Quintana on this venture and brought on Jeremy Bearman as executive chef. He specifically chose tapas using flavors from all over the world because it allows us to be creative without boundaries by executing different culinary styles techniques and sourcing a wide variety product. One Door East (620 S. Federal Highway Fort Lauderdale 954.368.6902) also expects a strong bar and late-night scene thanks to creative cocktails industrial design and cool ambience.
