It s been 15 years since a restaurateur threatened to break my kneecaps for a middling review of his seafood spot which closed shortly thereafter. And it s been three years since a record company publicist told me he d ruin my magazine career for running a photo of Ariana Grande that wasn t approved by his team. But as a reporter if you know going in that a little verbal harassment may be in the cards why not work with a pro That explains why I ve been playing the recording of my phone call with stand-up legend Richard Lewis to anyone who will listen. As much as I hope readers enjoy the resulting story on Lewis who coheadlines a show on Oct. 7 with Artie Lange at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek it s one of those times when the printed word doesn t do the interview justice. When the extension in my office rang that day the voice on the other end noticing the unfortunate prefix in our company phone number said You have to change the three 6s out of that number or I m going to come over and burn your house down. Otherwise hey good morning. For the next 80 minutes the man who s devoted himself to self-deprecation for 50 years riffed on anything and everything that came into his brilliant angst-filled mind. At one point after a detour about how he met his wife at a record-launch party for Ringo Starr the 70-year-old Lewis quipped I m telling you if this story isn t more than three sentences long I m going to find you. It was like being on the receiving end of a private stand-up performance. Realizing that I d done little more than laugh out loud during the interview Lewis said I feel like you re having a breakdown. You ve avoided asking me anything because you had your legal pad with all your questions and now you ve set it on fire like Rosemary s Baby. You re very intelligent but I think you re hiding something. Someone once told me you re as sick as your secrets. You better think about this when you hang up. Enjoy the issue and the Lewis story.

In the last few years several high-profile women and men including Good Morning America Margaret Thompson MD anchor Robin Roberts Breast Surgical Oncologist have been diagnosed with the illness. Her public bravery in post-operative photos added to her popularity. Did you know that Dame Maggie Smith Diahann Carroll and Richard Roundtree (better known as Shaft ) also battled breast cancer The state of the science in breast cancer is promising. However breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women and the chance that a woman will die from breast cancer is about 1 in 37. We can do more to prevent it and indeed we must do more. For instance mammograms previously done by two-dimensional equipment are now being replaced by 3D equipment called tomosynthesis. With better screening and improved technology we have better diagnostic capabilities. Tomosynthesis has reduced the call-back rate. Meaning we are more accurate in diagnosing a spot that is likely to be cancerous thus eliminating other unnecessary procedures. From a surgical aspect treatments are changing continuously and patients are benefiting from new therapies said Margaret Thompson MD breast surgical oncologist. We ve found that patients who required the removal of all lymph nodes can now be spared this invasive treatment option and only have a few lymph nodes removed. Radiation can now take its place safely and with fewer troublesome side effects. According to Dr. Thompson Every day we understand how important a team approach is in conquering cancer. At Cleveland Clinic Florida our patients typically see a multi-disciplinary team that includes not just a surgeon but also a radiologist pathologist medical oncologist radiation oncologist plastic surgeon and ancillary staff she commented. For our patients who require reconstruction a cohesive team approach is critical too. One of our most noteworthy innovations involves using fat injections during the plastic surgery portion of treatment. Our team removes the excess fatty tissue from the abdomen or thighs and injects it into the breast during reconstruction. Cancer care is complicated and overwhelming but Dr. Thompson comments that Cleveland Clinic Florida helps ameliorate the non-medical issues too. We provide navigators genetic counselors support groups plus massage art and music therapists to help patients undergoing treatment. There s even a boutique to help patients look their best by supplying wigs hats post-mastectomy bras and makeup seminars she said. PATIENT-CENTERED FEATURES AND AMENITIES Cleveland Clinic Florida s Maroone Cancer Center includes an on-site lab satellite and infusion pharmacy a patient resource center a wig and healing studio as well as special facilities for pain management physical and occupational therapy and diagnostics.

But how often do such original style creations incorporate bottle caps egg cartons and plastic bags For more than a decade it s been a yearly staple of the Recycled Fashion Show. On Nov. 17 the 12th annual event will feature couture designs made from recycled materials created by teen volunteers at Young at Art Museum in Davie. The imaginative artistry of museum volunteers sparked the creation of the show says Sue Aguilera teaching coordinator at the YAA Institute. Volunteers create jewelry and trinkets from reused or recycled materials that are displayed in the museum s recycling exhibit which highlights environmental concerns through the craftsmanship of artists. Their creativity knew no bounds Aguilera says. So we decided to show off what they could do. Teenagers ages 13 to 18 research their designs work with fashion designers and learn to sew high-concept dresses. The contestants creations are judged on representation of a chosen environmental issue creativity and usage of recycled material and adherence to the theme. The theme for this year s event is Cosplay Couture Restyled. Cosplay a contraction of the words costume play is the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie book or video game. They can show homage to their favorite characters find someone who inspired them or make up their own character to use as inspiration for their garment Aguilera says. The fashion show supports YAA s outreach initiatives--such as the Girls N Power program at PACE Center for Girls (Broward) in Wilton Manors an alternative academic program for girls in middle and high school who may have suffered abuse or violence in the home. The Girls N Power program uses art such as digital photography to build self-esteem and critical thinking skills for at-risk girls. It helps with self-expression especially when they might not have much control in their lives Aguilera says. It s a cathartic way of making art. Students from the program also serve as volunteers to create designs highlighted in the fashion show which will feature a recycled jewelry station and a nail art station. The fashion show not only raises awareness for all environmental issues but it lights the fuse for creativity in our teens Aguilera says. If they can make a dress out of bottle caps they can conquer the world. 16 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM Located along the scenic Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale Grateful Palate Catering & Events offers a truly unique setting to celebrate your event.

Once you taste our barbecue sauce you won t want to buy just any jar Beth says. The cranberry sauce we simmer it. The apple sauce tastes like apple pie. We add our own ingredients and slow-cook everything. Everything goes back to when we made things at home from scratch before everything was available in stores prepackaged with preservatives. CREATURES OF COMFORT Owners Paul and Beth Nunez opened their 1940s-style diner in 1999. Look closely at the logo and you ll see a simple notion Foods that comfort. The inspiration comes from Lucille Sarah Mirabella a North Carolinian who found her knack for cooking during the war room nights she organized for neighborhood women waiting for loved ones to return from World War II. TOP PICK Beth is quick to choose the three-cheese baked macaroni as Lucille s signature dish. Listed among four menu classics (along with the roast turkey dinner meatloaf and chicken pot pie) the dish is a creamy homestyle delight. Breadcrumbs and extra cheese are added to the adult portion before being baked making it crispy on the outside and gooey on the inside. As good as it is she says the best seller is the crispy chicken salad lettuce tomato bacon cheddar cheese crispy noodles scallions and battered buttermilk chicken tenders tossed in housemade honey-barbecue sauce. 3 SUNDAY BRUNCH Brunch is every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Beth prefers the blueberry pancakes but the decadent bananas Foster and bread pudding French toast are popular. Egg skillets are a staple as well. A DIVERSE PALATE Taste of the Nations is Lucille s fall promotion where weekly menus from September to October showcase international second is German and the third is Japanese. (The promotion ends Oct. 21.) The idea is tied into Lucille s the war he brought back recipes from the countries he visited. 18 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 19 LifeLessons troy lee weekly A Davie rodeo pro weighs in on the thrill of the ride the danger of the sport--and his biggest fears We ve always considered it a professional sport. It sounds funny to say but there s people that make 500 000. It ain t like other sports where you get paid to do it--you ve got to win or you don t get paid. It s neat to be able to bring a professional sport to your hometown. It ain t just me--it s my dad and his brothers and all of our family. It s very important to all of us. ... Everything we do it s as a family. To me it ain t [scary]. It sounds funny. A lot of people say Does that scare you when you start messing with them bucking bulls When you re in the pen it s like being in a cage with a lion. Most of them ain t extremely mean but they can be at any time. They get pretty mad pretty quick. I m not saying there aren t times when I don t get scared when I know I m going to get hooked by a bull or one is going to run me over. But I never think twice about doing something because I ve done it since I was so young. I ve had broken bones and horses fall on me. I ve been in a lot of different wrecks on horses and been run over by bulls and stuff like that. It hasn t really slowed me down. I do get scared with [my 11-year-old son Trey]. I never thought I would but the first time you turn your kid loose on a horse by himself ... you get pretty nervous. And when he started roping ... there s a lot of people that do what we do that are missing fingers from that. When my wife and son do it I worry. When I m doing it I don t worry about any of the dangers. I ll be 43 this year and I still do [rodeo] almost every weekend ... A lot of [my family] quit as they got older and started raising families. I just never could. I always liked it. -- ALYSSA FISHER The Weekly File Land and cattle supervisor for Weekly Brothers Davie Pro Rodeo Produces the rodeos at the arena in Davie (4271 Davie Road) President of All Florida Junior Rodeo Association Six-time Southeast 20 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 21 BarTalk AHEAD OF LETTUCE INGREDIENTS 2 ounces vodka 1 ounce cane syrup 1 teaspoon of extra virgin olive oil 3 small leaves of romaine lettuce chili oil black pepper DIRECTIONS Shake well and strain into a chilled Champagne saucer. Garnish with drops of chili oil and a sprinkle of pepper. A Savory Mix PANTRY STAPLES MAKE A FORT LAUDERDALE SPEAKEASY S LATEST CONCOCTION A WINNER t first it was odd watching Brian Freed pour extra virgin olive oil into the shaker on top of the vodka. Then came the romaine lettuce. Was he making a cocktail or a salad Ahead of Lettuce recently debuted on the fall winter menu at Stache Drinking Den and Coffee Bar the craft cocktail-focused speakeasy in downtown Fort Lauderdale (109 SW Second Ave.). Originally it stole the hearts and stomachs of diners at Freed s latest venture C.W.S. Bar & Kitchen in Lake Worth earning a spot on the permanent menu. We re trying to create some synergy between the two places by having some of the same cocktails says Freed the co-owner. This cocktail was a hit--it s delicious it feels healthy. It s light it s refreshing. We always change our drinks but this one was a winner. Stache s signature cocktails make use of fresh ingredients and a wild imagination. In addition to lettuce and a spoonful of olive oil Ahead of Lettuce calls on vodka (the lounge opts for Hangar One) fresh-squeezed lime juice ( It has to be fresh--no bottle stuff he says) cane syrup and chili oil to garnish. Oh and a dash of seasonings because what salad doesn t have salt and pepper The sweet syrup and the sour juice balance the richness of the olive oil which creates a slightly silky texture. The outcome is a libation that transcends seasons yet stands up to South Florida s hot autumn days. Plus vodka cocktails are an easy sell. Vodka pays the bills as they say he quips. It s not going anywhere. Otherwise an Old Fashioned is our biggest seller. Stache has become a favorite spot for whiskey lovers given its 350 varieties. It even spawned the Fort Lauderdale Whiskey Society a group of more than 500 enthusiasts who come together each month for a tasting. The bar also has its own barrels of bourbon. We wanted to do something different than what downtown Fort Lauderdale knows which is slamming drinks Freed says. Giving people a better spirit a better drink. Something that s balanced. People are beginning to take their cocktails more seriously. -- ALYSSA FISHER A 22 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM PHOTO BY EVELYN ROBLES JOIN THE FIGHT FOR ALZHEIMER S FIRST SURVIVOR.

Executive chef Christopher Palmer calls on his chefs at the restaurant s two South Florida locations--Fort Lauderdale (721 E. Las Olas Blvd.) and Brickell (690 SW First Court)--for a culinary brainstorming session. Ideas are pitched. Cases are made. The concepts that make the cut advance to the preparation and cooking stage where the chefs come together as one for tweaking and testing. Eventually Palmer signs off on the final versions--but the power ultimately is vested in the people who quickly weigh in on the new menu offerings. When it comes to American Social s recent summer additions the people have spoken. Shared plates such as truffle rib tater tots rancheros meatballs and hickory-smoked chicken wings-- and entrees such as the steak and barley salad and the Drunken Goat (an 8-ounce lamb and beef patty with tomato jam arugula bourbon red onion and red wine goat cheese)--already are drawing raves. For Palmer who grew up in Cleveland before moving to Florida and cutting his kitchen teeth at Caf Boulud in Palm Beach it s the latest chapter in a never-ending quest to heighten the restaurant s comfort pub food focus. Food-wise so much has changed says Palmer who s been with American Social for three years. I took out everything canned and processed. We re a true scratch kitchen. Nothing frozen nothing out of a bag. Everybody works extra hard to make sure everything is all natural. I always tell people that you don t come to American Social to get healthy--but we re not going to pollute your body either. Sometimes the body wants what the body wants. That seems to be the case with the Maine Lobster Benedict which has been blowing up on the brunch menu (Saturday and Sunday 10 30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) on Las Olas. Here are some of the reasons why. 24 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM Sweet dreams The idea for Maine Lobster Benedict came to me when I was lying in bed one night Palmer says. We went away from a full buffet in Lauderdale so we wanted something on the brunch menu that had value--and was sophisticated. Raise a glass Another component with brunch are the deals we have on Mo t & Chandon and house Champagne. The women especially seem to love the dish with unlimited mimosas. What s better than lobster and Champagne On the side We also serve a small spinach feta and baby heirloom salad [with tomato vinaigrette] instead of the traditional home fries. That keeps it light. You re not going to eat our Lobster Benedict and then go home and feel like you need to nap. Seafood special Lobster adds a different element to the dish. You get the sweetness from the lobster meat to go with the tomato hollandaise sauce [and avocado mousse] you get a little bitterness from the spinach and then it all comes together with the fresh English muffin. We make our own English muffins at the Brickell restaurant so we re bringing that baker to Lauderdale so we can make the muffins fresh there as well. LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 25 L Dr. Tracey Stokes Game Changer Breast cancer patients have an alternative when it comes to postmastectomy reconstruction BY ALONA ABBADY MARTINEZ ast December the U.S. Food & Drug Administration changed the conversation when it comes to reconstructive options for women following a mastectomy. That s when the FDA approved marketing of the AeroForm Tissue Expander. The device which is implanted at the time of the mastectomy gradually fills with carbon dioxide using a remote control given to the patient. Unlike the traditional saline tissue expander a process that involves painful weekly injections of 50 cubic centimeters of saline the AeroForm device allows the patient to independently trigger the release of 10 cc of carbon dioxide every three hours up to three times a day. Aside from being painless and extremely convenient it also speeds up the expansion process says Tracey Stokes a Harvardeducated plastic surgeon and a partner with Laura Sudarsky at Esse Plastic Surgery in Fort Lauderdale. Darice Lang 61 a two-time breast cancer survivor who underwent a bilateral mastectomy in March 2016 had the AeroForm expander implanted and called it a game changer. I had the expanders for 19 days Lang says. It did not interfere with my routine and I didn t have to take time to go to the doctor s office and go through all the pain of the [saline] expansion. It s empowering to be in control of that. The device is covered by insurance companies but for patients the psychological component is the most powerful selling point. Patients get to decide when they want to fill and if they are having a bad day they don t have to fill Stokes says. They don t have to go to the doctor every Tuesday at 10 or leave their work or family to get filled. Perhaps the greatest testament to the device is when Stokes herself became a patient. I am BRCA positive she says referring to the gene linked with a higher occurrence of breast cancer. I have more [medical] knowledge than the average person when I had to undergo this surgery in May [AeroForm] is what I opted for. [That s] a powerful statement about the technology. 26 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 27 Michelle Solomon and her mother The Essential Documents The following legal documents have allowed (or will allow) Michelle to make important decisions on her mother s behalf. Consult an attorney for right for you and your family. 1.

My mother still knows her daughter and she thanks me every day for helping her navigate her changing world. I thank her for ensuring that some of the challenges we are both facing because of this devastating disease are less daunting because of her advanced preparation. Peace of Mind BY MICHELLE F. SOLOMON In dealing with her mother s dementia the author learns the true value of having your legal affairs in order M y mother was always organized. Everything was in its place. She talked about her last wishes in case of her death. In her safe deposit box she had specific instructions about what she wanted me to do when she died. She already had written her obituary and attached the photo she wanted to accompany it. She had told me many times that if she had a stroke or a debilitating illness she hoped to pass away quickly. That didn t happen. Since October 2013 my mother MabelFaye Solomon has had a progressive decline in her mental and physical health from vascular dementia the second-most common dementia which often coexists with Alzheimer s disease. Vascular dementia is caused by a series of mini-strokes most of which are not outwardly noticeable. What are the signs She had difficulty signing her name and figuring out the process of what was required to pay her bills. My mother had been a teacher for 30 years so that was unusual behavior. In 2012 as fate would have it she requested that I accompany her to a lawyer. She wanted to make sure she had everything in order just in case. For a few hundred dollars (costs vary per attorney) legal documents were drawn up. It wasn t just a will she had done that earlier. These were essential documents that would allow me to make important financial and medical decisions on Mom s behalf. Little did we both know that this would be crucial when I had to become her voice when she wasn t able to decide for herself if she should have her hip and leg operated on after she fell. Or how her money would be handled to pay for her care when she needed to be placed in assisted living--and a host of other important financial and medical decisions. The key was that Mom still had the full mental ability and therefore the legal capacity to make the decision that I would be the trusted source to make decisions on her behalf if she became unable to do so.

LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 33 LIFESTYLE ADVICE SPECIAL MARKETING SECTION MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA VIDEO WITH THIS GUIDE On every social medium video is quickly displacing text posts and photos as the primary way of engaging current and prospective clients. As moving pictures gain popularity so does their professionalism. Shaky loosely framed poorly lit videos sufficed in the early days when capturing an event or recording a vlog was a novelty. Today organizations are recording in high definition using lighting and sound equipment that puts their videos on par with TV programming. Researchers have combed through the statistics on billions of videos to determine the optimal ways to produce and distribute clips on each social media platform. What had been amateur art has become a professional science. And if your organization hopes to generate business from its videos it must upgrade its efforts. Here s what you need to know Think first about your audience. Millennials prefer Instagram Baby Boomers gravitate toward Facebook. The younger generation wants to interact the content while the older age group is more passive. Twitter is for everyone but mostly for breaking news. Edit video to different lengths. Adjust the script to the platform. Studies show that just under 30 seconds is best the length for Instagram 45 seconds for Twitter 60 for Facebook and two minutes for YouTube. You ll have to shorten introductions cut segments and eliminate graphics to squeeze 120 seconds down to 30. Put the script onscreen. Firms that study how video consumption say that 85 percent of Facebook video is watched with the sound off and that 39 percent of viewers are more likely to finish videos that have subtitles. Text that captures the story including quotes will boost your audience. Consider where and when the video will be viewed. A study by business video producer Vidyard found that 86 percent of business videos are viewed on a desktop only 14 percent are watched on smaller devices such as tablets and smartphones. Prime time for those videos is Wednesday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. ET. Put your content on a calendar. Just as organizations schedule Facebook and Twitter text-and-photo updates video should be programmed. One reason is to capture the biggest audience the second is more practical It takes time sometimes weeks -- to script shoot and edit one video. Go live but only under the right conditions. Snapchat Facebook Live and Instagram Live turn every Internet-connected device into a news channel. Your organization can engage people with on-the-scene action if DON SILVER COO of BoardroomPR 1776 N. Pine Island Road Suite 320 Fort Lauderdale 33322 954.370.8999 BoardroomPR.com the broadcast appears professional. That means having an upload speed of at least 2 megabytes per second preferably faster good lighting and quiet recording conditions. If your live video looks and sounds like it s being shot in a shabby subway station it ll attract only negative comments. Measure results and refine the messaging. Vidyard says that one-third of businesses are using sophisticated analytics to determine which videos perform best. Almost 80 percent of top performers hold the audience s attention to the last second. Learn from every video and always keep improving. 34 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM An Elective MRI CT or PET Can quite possibly save your life.

I m going to try a new tack and hopefully not ramble he says later in the one-sided conversation. How am I doing so far It couldn t be going any better. When one of the most original and influential stand-ups of any era unleashes a self-deprecating stream of consciousness the last thing you want to do is interrupt him. As it turns out comedy s Man in Black is rambling for a reason. He s wrapped up a ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm with best friend and show creator Larry David he s 23 years sober he s happily married to wife Joyce and at age 70 he s back on stage after taking time off last year to recover from various ailments including a fractured wrist ( I did more shows at CedarsSinai the past year than [on stage] he says.) Lewis co-headlines this month with Artie Lange at Seminole Casino Coconut Creek with 300 000 hours of material in his head. I m going to be so raw I might get so provocative in that casino that the people wearing Bermuda shorts won t have to go in the sun he says. Their thighs and calves will be red by the time I m off the stage. If his Q&A with Lifestyle (which honestly was way more A than Q) is any indication that may be an understatement. (Visit lmgfl.com for the full interview.) We ve finished shooting the ninth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm. I ve seen some of the [episodes] I think it s the best season. Larry took a long five-year nap unfortunately. But he doesn t go into a new season unless he thinks he has a 10-story arc. The show is adlib but there are some expositional points otherwise there s no story and it would be like those cakes that crumble whatever they re called. I used to know. That s the thing [about being] 70. My brain now ... you might ask a question about politics and I ll tell you that things aren t going well for President Eisenhower. If only Eisenhower would stop tweeting I m starting to go bald in the back of my head. So we re doing some post-production stuff for Curb and I say to Larry Why do you always have the camera on the back of my head you bastard. ... Larry says The balder you get the more episodes I m [doing]. I haven t spoken to him in a week. I m not sure whether I m rooting for more hair to be in the drain or not. I think I d rather be semibald and do a 10th season of Curb. Then after that I ll be offered a show where I play Uncle Mikey the guy who [lives] with a chimp. I used to use notes on stage I haven t in a decade. ... I had this sheet that was Scotch-taped together. When I opened it up it would be about 6 feet long. It looked like a Jewish Christopher Columbus scroll. ... When I was younger I carried this sheet everywhere I went. If I lost it I would have had to run away with the circus and be shot out of a cannon. The first Jewish clown to be shot out of a cannon. I d probably go about a footand-a-half in the air. And then I d apologize and offer to pay for everyone s tickets. There are so many different platforms [for comics to pursue today] that I almost want to take a nap thinking about all the work I would have to do. The road was narrower in [the 1970s]. It was like Get The Tonight Show or you re done. So I d drive to Catch a Rising Star in New York try to meet as many consensually loving actresses as I could--who were all unfortunately waitressing--and work on my act. I wasn t thinking about protein and probiotics. I was thinking about The Tonight Show and condoms. Don t think there weren t comedy groupies. They weren t walking around with clown shoes and red noses on--although I know one comic who was into that. I had an unfortunate attraction to some unfortunate personalities [during his dating days] and I would parade this Fellini-esque group one after another in front of my therapist. ... Out of the corner of my eye I would envision my therapist giving me a thumb s up. There was never a thumbs-up. ... This went on for 15 years until I met Joyce [his wife of 12 years]--a name that we both despise but there s nothing I can do with it. I like Richard it s a cool name. But Joyce If I kiss my wife after saying her name I feel like I m kissing my aunt at a Passover meal in Brooklyn in 1957. By the way I have a fascination with clocks. I have a collection of them. ... Why was I even thinking about the clocks Maybe it s because I ve been on the phone with you for 3 days. Oh the therapist. So my wife when we dated I had to find some reason to go to the therapist. My therapist loved my wife and knew she was the right one for me. But she just couldn t take me anymore. The therapist leaned in about an inch away from my face and said This is as good as it gets. And she said it in this scary horror voice like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. Her head spun around on its axis and she spit this green guck all over my black suit. Listen I m going to need some oxygen soon. We ve been talking for 80 minutes. I know because I m looking at one of my 1 000 clocks.
