ARY4YNM3 AD-07-17-0558 471003PM-0217 08 2017 LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 5 Editor sLetter t s been 25 years since Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula blasted me in front of a room full of sports reporters for asking about a controversial draft pick. 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. I know I did.

The Boca-based museum s fifth installation-- Bling The Brilliant History of Glitz --features some of the most bedazzling costumes from Broadway shows (like 42nd Street and La Cage aux Folles ) as well as film accessories from Cleopatra and The King and I. But the bling doesn t stop there. The exhibit also includes a collection of Liberace s most outrageous presentational costumes--including the flamboyant piano player s legendary King Neptune cape. The one thing they all have in common is embellishments and as this exhibit proves a little bling makes a big difference says Wick the exhibit s curator.

Documents and More transparency. Greater communication. The civil litigation firm started by sisters Caroline Johnson and Christen Ritchey specializes in family and divorce law but its cases don t necessarily end up in a courtroom battle. In fact when it comes to divorce cases Johnson and Ritchey do some of their most important work within the comfort of their tranquil Boca Raton office. That s because the two graduates of the University of Florida s Levin College of Law (Ritchey in 2005 Johnson in 2006) employ a collaborative process for interested clients in Palm Beach and Broward counties. We can t stand to see people wasting their assets on a fight that ultimately rips them and the family apart says Ritchey who launched the practice (Johnson & Ritchey 150 E. Palmetto Park Road with her sister in 2014. We think it can be done better. To that end the sisters focus on spreading awareness regarding alternatives to litigation in divorce matters. In a collaborative case both parties retain a lawyer but no lawsuit is filed. In addition a neutral mental health specialist and financial adviser are present. During these team meetings parties discuss their interests and what they want as the outcome of the case. The process intended to keep the proceedings as respectful as possible is completely confidential none of the financial information or other private matters appear on public records. At the end of the agreement made between the lawyers both parties attend a short court hearing where the judge dissolves the marriage. I fell in love with family law because I m helping people in their time of need Johnson says. It s rewarding to help a family restructure and preserve the co-parenting relationship. In Florida there are now 15 groups that practice this holistic approach to divorce. We value family. It s the most important thing in either of our lives says Ritchey who is a mother of two (Johnson has three children). We devote our career to family law and the fact that someone is going through a divorce doesn t mean they can t stay a family. 18 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 19 TheDish Ouzo Bay WHERE 201 PLAZA REAL BOCA RATON PHONE 561.757.0082 WEB OUZOBAY.COM BOCA-RATON Things to Know About 5 2 HERE S TO YOUR HEALTH Less is often more when it comes to the and other seafood chicken lamb and beef specialties on the menu.

Whatever happened good or bad when it is 24 hours later you ve got to move on. I spent the last three years with Nick [Saban] coaching in Alabama and it really was good. I was interviewed by a paper there and I said that being [at Alabama] was like dog years [Saban] didn t like that. What I meant was that every year there was like seven years of education with him so it was like having 21 years of education in three years. Because he s the best at what he does. Everyone is different. I am going to treat you fairly but I m not going to treat you the same. That goes back to understanding your employees and what motivates them. I talk to our players and coaches all the time and say [Expletive] happens. ... But what are we going to do [about it] I got that from a motivation guy years ago who used to come and help us with our program. As harsh as it sounds one of his buddies got cancer. And he said to him So now what I use that a lot with our players when they go through tough things. We get people ... [where] everything looks good on paper but you can tell they don t have passion. I ve found that those who have passion and are excited to be a part of the team make the best hires versus the ones who are already stuck in their ways. Yes I have been fired. In those situations you do feel like everyone is looking at you. You get judged. I had to let it go. You can t worry about what everyone is saying.

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.

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 26 OCTOBER 2017 LMGFL.COM PHOTO BY EVELYN ROBLES LMGFL.COM OCTOBER 2017 27 What sCooking THE NEW MENU AT AMERICAN SOCIAL INCLUDING THE MAINE LOBSTER BENEDICT PUTS A GOURMET SPIN ON PUB FOOD BY KEVIN KAMINSKI Comfort Zone W Christopher Palmer hen it comes to changing its menu each summer and winter American Social remains a shining example of democracy in action. 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. 28 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 29 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 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 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.
