I hate to state the obvious but July is a HOT rainy mess. And while I m not a meteorologist I m pretty sure August will be sweltering too. Instead of hibernating (and accumulating an astronomical FPL bill) I suggest hitting the pool or beach in a fabulous swimsuit. In this issue we ve featured a Boca babe Ali Grief who s garnered a huge following with her designs in Fort Lauderdale and has now hit the big time taking her Broward swagger to California. We shot our swimsuit cover story in Fort Lauderdale s Flagler Village which we think is the new cool kid in town. From the hip and happening Rhythm & Vine a Wynwood-esque bar to a host of new eateries and places to live you ll see why this is THE place to be right now. Keeping with the staying cool theme score free AC while sipping and eating on the cheap at our top happy hour spots from Coral Springs to Deerfield Beach. These aren t your typical two-for-one places. You can clink 10 glasses of Veuve Clicquot or really get out of your comfort zone with a falafel ladies night. Yes I said falafel. The point Check out a new neighborhood (but if you re drinking be sure to take an Uber or taxi home). And no matter where you live you ll want to join an adorable Fort Lauderdale couple on a unique bike tour that s made for both locals and tourists. There are so many things to do this month so get out there and enjoy the South Florida lifestyle The A-List Angela s top lusts and musts this month Beat the scorching heat at Drinkhouse Fire and Ice Miami s first vodka ice bar. I suggest hitting the 23-degree ice bar for a unique winter wonderland experience. Can t take the frost Guests are supplied with faux fur coats and gloves. I m on a perpetual health kick. Myapapaya Juicery in Fort Lauderdale (I love the acai bowls for breakfast and the bison patty on a bed of spinach for lunch) and Christopher s Kitchen (a plant-based restaurant) in Palm Beach Gardens are my top spots for eating clean. Since we re talking happy hours in this issue be sure to hit the massive back patio at the new Louie Bossi s Ristorante on Las Olas As someone who loves designer clothes but hates paying designer prices I found a gorgeous Clover Canyon dress at my favorite consignment shop Worth Repeating in Wilton Manors a 300 dress for 42 This place is true gem for fashionistas. Miami Spa Month kicks off this month and newcomer The Spa at The Thompson Miami Beach gets my blissful vote for its rooftop oasis. For 99 choose the All About You massage. This 60-minute treatment is customized to your liking you get to pick the areas and how much time is devoted to each body part. Mine was a mixture of Thai stretching deep-tissue kneading and scalp massaging that ended with a put-you-to-sleep foot rub. Dessert alert My latest obsession mini cupcakes from the new Batter Co. Dessert Collection in Coconut Creek. My faves were the lemon and blueberry (sweet and tart) and the white chocolate raspberry. There is also a Pompano Beach location.

Her clothing line is a fusion of Latin American flair (she s originally from Venezuela) and Asian simplicity. It makes sense as she studied fashion in Japan when she was just starting out as a young designer. That s where she met her mentor established Tokyo designer Kyoko Higa. The two became fast friends and eventual business partners their collaboration continues to this day. Their motto Casual elegance created with design in mind. For the summer 2015 collection the line is all about color retro prints and bohemian silhouettes. SHIREEN on the scene Deco Drive Anchor Shireen Sandoval s Fashion Picks A CANDY BAG Candy Woolley has an undeniable God-given talent. She can design a purse just as good if not better than some of the best high-end designers in the business. She probably inherited her artistic gifts from her parents who are third-generation tailors. Growing up Woolley was always surrounded by fabrics textures and patterns. She learned to sew when she was just 13 and quality was something her parents instilled in her from a very early age. Woolley designs all types of silhouettes clutches in different sizes totes shoulder bags and more. Lately I ve been obsessed with her barrelshaped bag. She does a lot of custom work too with genuine leather and exotic skins.

I ve always been an artist and always knew I wanted to be creative and have my own business. Designing swimsuits came naturally growing up in South Florida I was always in a bathing suit. Just a few years ago Grief was designing and selling bathing suits out of her Fort Lauderdale apartment. After more than a year of young women filing in and out of her small place she decided to open her first store The Montce Swim Shop in Fort Lauderdale and she quickly gained a cultlike following.

I don t follow or pay attention to trends too much says Grief. I like to keep my designs original and stay true to my own personal style. While the classic Montce style focuses on cheeky bottoms (mostly meant for the eat-anything you-wantand-not-gain-a-pound younger crowd) you can also customize your suit to add more fabric. If you want to cover a scar or want less of your bottom showing you can customize that says Grief.

In the case of Flagler Village in downtown Fort Lauderdale the rise to cool has been a mixture of the city s dream for a live-work-play environment the local arts community taking a first step and the Great Recession (which led to great opportunity). Flagler Village roughly defined as the blocks just west of Federal Highway from NE Fourth Street to Sunrise Boulevard began its transformation from seedy to hipster around 2008. When FATVillage (Flagler Arts Technology) a multi-block hub for artists of all kinds created its monthly ARTWALK foot traffic to the region quickly increased. Soon after The Bubble (now known as Jump the Shark) launched a popular performance space and art gallery and an edgy nightlife scene soon followed. Additional cafes bars and shops hoping to tap into this new audience were able to take advantage of lowered rents when the recession hit and the development of Flagler Village began to blossom. Now with a growing residential population thanks to a few large apartment buildings (conveniently adjacent to downtown) everything from pizza joints to beer gardens have been popping up. Our goal as a community is to make Flagler Village the best place to live work and play says Camille Hansen president of the Flagler Village Civic Association. She calls the area a diversified community and says the audience is becoming very young and vibrant. Recent openings include the 5 500-square-foot Mellow Mushroom an Atlanta-based pizza chain with an artistic 1970s feel. The restaurant already a hit since it opened in May delivers stone-baked pizza calzones gluten-free items and 48 beer taps 46 JULY 2015 LMGFL.COM A repurposed Airstream serves as the outdoor bar at Rhythm & Vine. LMGFL.COM JULY 2015 47 at the outside bar. May also saw the grand opening of Colada a Cuban coffeehouse from the owners of the 30-year-old Miramar Bakery. The shop offers coffee and food in addition to a bottomless Sunday brunch craft beer and an already-popular happy hour with specialty drinks and 4 empanadas. Arturo Pena of The Related Group one of the first developers in the area says At Related we love becoming part of a neighborhood and helping make it better. When we had this opportunity to develop The Manor at Flagler Village an entire city block of mixeduse space with frontage along Federal Highway a Fresh Market across the street and the Wave trolley to take folks to Las Olas we jumped on it. Having a slice of pizza at the Mellow Mushroom with my family last weekend really made me proud of helping create the great vibe in the Flagler Village neighborhood. These days ARTWALK is more popular than ever while new outings like the thrice-yearly Night Owl Market a festival fusing art community and sustainability as well as the twice-monthly food truck gathering Food in Motion in Peter Feldman Park continue to fuel the creative backbone of this community. Probably the best example of the current vibe in Flagler Village though comes in the form of the new bar beer garden art gallery event space Rhythm & Vine. Started as a pop-up in late 2014 by David Cardaci and IT S A DIFFERENT CROWD THAN YOU D SEE ON LAS OLAS. IT S WHERE THE COOL KIDS COME AND PLAY. Derek Young (who originally partnered on a location of The Whole Enchilada) Rhythm & Vine now hosts a nightly rotation of food trucks and concerts. After a quick and organic growth the partners set permanent roots in April of this year. I would say within a month of diving into the project we knew we were onto something bigger and better says Young. The space which includes an outside garden and inside bar featuring murals from celebrated local artist Purvis Young and world-renowned street artist Gregory Siff is geared toward people who are comfortable in their own skin Young explains. He says many of their customers relax in the garden by day and stay to party into the night. The men were influenced by their experiences in New York and L.A. and tried to import some of the creative side the more hip stuff that we felt Fort Lauderdale was lacking. 48 JULY 2015 LMGFL.COM Far left Model Leann Crupi with dog Lincoln at the dog park at The Edge at Flagler Village Apartments Left Row of taps at the Mellow Mushroom Below The beer garden at Rhythm & Vine As to why they chose this location Cardaci says This is where there s a lot of young professionals and a lot of businesses to serve those young professionals. Both men love the pedestrian atmosphere. About 50 percent of our customers come on foot or bike Cardaci says. I think that s a reflection of the concept that Flagler Village is about and developing into. They say their customers are a mixture of yachties (people who work and live on yachts) young professionals and in-the-know visitors. It s a different crowd than you d see on Las Olas. It s where the cool kids come and play Cardaci says. Young echoes this sentiment Las Olas is an invaluable part of this community... but we are different. We are not trying to imitate the Las Olas feel we want to complement it with a more urban and communal feel. The future of Flagler Village will certainly see more growth but it will be in keeping with the established cool factor that is a must in this neighborhood. A deli from the owners of Foxy Brown called Top Hat is set to open in August while Source Salon (an Aveda Lifestyle Salon) and The Brass Tap Beer Bar a craft beer bar with locations throughout Florida have signed leases as well. Additionally more than 2 164 new residential units are approved or planned for the area. But the most exciting news for Flagler Village is the recently approved loop on the Wave electric streetcar project. This will appeal both to residents developers and new businesses alike. The existing businesses couldn t be more excited. My hope is that creative competition develops within Flagler Village because that s what makes places like L.A. and New York so cool says Young. The more competition the better as long as we keep consistent with the concept of keeping that area creative and cool instead of cookie-cutter. LMGFL.COM JULY 2015 49 50 JULY 2015 LMGFL.COM PEDAL POWER BY ANGELA CARAWAY-CARLTON PHOTOS BY KARA STARZYK PHOTOGRAPHY In Fort Lauderdale it s not uncommon to see people whizzing by on Segways or cruising the river on water taxis. But until recently Fort Lauderdale was lacking what residents of places like Portland Oregon obsess over a two-wheeled adventure where riders can uncover all the nooks and crannies of the city. Local couple Laurie Menekou and Nate Ernest-Jones noticed the void after a trip to Savannah Georgia last April. We couldn t help but talk about all the cool tourist options there were in Savannah options that gave some insight into the city s history and culture but in a fun way Menekou shares. We realized that Fort Lauderdale did not have a bike tour option. So during the eight-hour drive back we had our tour route loosely sketched out scripted the commentary to go with it and bought the website. Bumble Bee Bike Tours was born. The tours launch from popular Las Olas Boulevard where riders will hop on sleek black-and-yellow bikes LMGFL.COM JULY 2015 Founders Nate Ernest-Jones and Laurie Menekou ride through a Fort Lauderdale neighborhood. 51 Each tour starts on Las Olas at The Archives. that not only look cool but ride like luxury cars (which means my backside didn t ache after two hours of exploring). After all the safety rules are reviewed the hive (as each tour group is called) buzzes through downtown stopping at historic spots and cultural landmarks such as the Stranahan House and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts coasts along the banks of the New River and cruises in and out of tucked-away neighborhood gems. Seeing some of the most historic homes in neighborhoods such as Colee Hammock really takes people s breath away says Ernest-Jones. Instead of rattling off a lot of dry historical facts our queen bee guide for the afternoon Carrie offered up a good mix of interesting information along with fun localsin-the-know stories. She was quick to point out artistic features like the city s painted intersections and wrapped FPL boxes and I was able to really soak up attractions that I see every day but never fully appreciated. We have hosted quite a few locals on our tours and every single time without fail they say they have learned something new points out Ernest-Jones. And since Fort Lauderdale is the Venice of America riders will make pit stops at a local Italian cafe for a cold beer or coffee along with another blissful break for homemade gelato. (I suggest the dulce de leche you ve earned it after all that pedaling ) Right now tours are offered twice a day on Saturdays and Sundays and once things cool off in October the couple plans to add more tours that showcase different areas. We are always walking and cycling through the neighborhoods looking for interesting homes and unique little touches says Menekou. P.S. To the one disgruntled person who shouted at our group for holding up traffic on Las Olas bicyclists have the same rights and road rules as vehicles. So bee nice to your fellow bikers and carefully share the road For more information on Bumble Bee Bike Tours visit 52 JULY 2015 LMGFL.COM KIDS EAT FREE THIS SUMMER. RATES FROM 199.

Even though it s located inside the casino the bright lights and blaring cha-chings from slot machines can t distract you from Kuro s jaw-dropping entrance a beautiful wall covered with thousands of seashells. The airy sophisticated restaurant overlooks the hotel s glimmering pool definitely a huge step up from typical casino dining. With a stellar team from hotshot restaurants like Nobu and Katsuya and a sushi chef trained by Morimoto you know you are in good hands. The night we dined here Executive Chef Alex Becker stopped by our table. His passion to create an ever-evolving unique menu got us excited for our Japanese journey. I don t know how you feel about a mushroom in your cocktail but Kuro s mixologist thinks outside the proverbial box when it comes to inventive libations. And for the most part the creativity works (however one cocktail I tried was a little too strange for my taste). The drinks are divided into different flavor profiles such as sweet sour salty and umami and five different types of ice are used which really gives each drink its own distinct feel. Our top choices were the Hachi 4 mushroom bourbon cocktail and the Ni a mixture of rum yuzu watermelon and Thai basil. At first we were a bit overwhelmed by all the options on the menu but our waiter guided us through the night. We started with the Crispy Rice which is topped with spicy tuna and caviar. Its perfectly toasted buttery flavor makes it a must-order. Another standout was the Hokkaido Scallop Sashimi with yuzu jelly and young ginger. It s light and refreshing with just the right amount of citrus. While the Seared Salmon Sashimi looked unassuming it surprisingly blew me away. The fish is seared on the outside with 12 Japanese spices and the apple chutney creates an explosion of flavor. A crowd favorite is the Corn Kakiage a tempura corn fritter but the fried taste was too much for me after just one ball of crispy corn. From the robata grill the bite-size Wagyu Tacos are delicious with spicy cilantro and soy shallots. One of our favorites of the night was the Seabass Miso entree which is marinated for 24 hours and sits on a Japanese lotus root. We could tell the chef put a lot of love into this dish. When it comes to dessert if you re adventurous gamble on the Kuro Goma Panna Cotta with ginger gel e cucumber pearl pomegranate foam and nori sponge crumble. While I felt like way too much was going on and all the flavors didn t jive it will definitely be the most unique dessert you ll ever try. I played it safe and preferred the Japanese doughnuts which are served with peanut butter and chocolate ganache dipping sauces.
