This Condominium - LMGFL.COM FEBRUARY 2017 9 EDITOR S letter From freckles to frown lines... Choose a dermatologist for the life of your skin. Over the course of my journalism career I ve had the opportunity to interview countless celebrities for various publications including some of the greatest athletes of our time during my 15 years as a sports writer. During the first of those interviews a spring training sit-down with baseball legend George Brett of the Kansas City Royals in 1986 the year after his team had won the World Series the future Hall of Famer gave a college sophomore 40 minutes of his time. He even asked me which brand of hair mousse I used because he was so impressed with how my feathered bangs of that era barely budged in the wind. Thirty years later I can tell you that not all celebrity interviews go that well. Sometimes then-Florida Gators running back Emmitt Smith gets in your face because he doesn t like how the press is digging into potential NCAA rules violations by the football program. Or then-Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula yells at you during a press conference because you ask about one of his draft-pick busts. Sometimes while interviewing George H.W. Bush in the press box of a baseball stadium the Secret Service mistakes your tape recorder for an unidentified object and not-so-gently smacks your arm away from the former president s face. On the flip side celebrities can surprise you. Carol Burnett once regaled me with hilarious show-biz tales for more than an hour--all the while knowing that her daughter Carrie Hamilton was about to die in a few days from brain and lung cancer. After I shared a story with her that I went on one date with Hoda Kotb in the early 1990s never to hear from her again Kathie Lee Gifford turned to me and said Hoda ... that slut The truth is as a reporter you never know how an interview with someone accustomed to the spotlight will go. That may explain why writer Michelle Solomon called me immediately after her conversation with chef Bobby Flay. She couldn t have been more excited about the candor and enthusiasm the Food Network star brought to the table on the eve of his appearance as guest judge at the 2017 Downtown BBQ Throwdown at Mizner Park in Boca Raton--one of some 60 events that Lifestyle will proudly sponsor in 2017.

Expect an evening of greatest hits and select cuts off the new album. When Feb. 12 7 30 p.m. Where BB&T Center Sunrise hen the castle gates unlatch this month Quiet Waters Park will unfold into a storybook Renaissance village plucked from the imagination of Bobby Rodriguez and his staff. From 10 a.m. to sunset jesters and jugglers will horseplay around the grounds. A jousting tournament will pit four armored horsemen against each other in an age-old battle. The sounds of fiddles will fill the air as artisans sell their crafts and visitors wield giant turkey legs like scepters. It takes a year of planning and three weeks of building to bring the Renaissance fair to life says Rodriguez the founder and producer. Now in its 25th year the festival from Feb. 11 to March 26 at Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach will introduce more new acts than ever before while bringing back some old favorites. New decorations and a fresh layout are among the anniversary highlights. There s going to be a lot of surprises for the folks he says. In 1992 Rodriguez put on his first medieval festival in Florida. The one-weekend show drew about 3 000 people. Now it welcomes nearly W 100 000 attendees over seven themed weekends. He first came up with the idea in 1990 when he suggested a medieval fair as a substitute for a black-tie ball for the then-forthcoming Broward Center for the Performing Arts. Instead of [people] wearing their gowns and black ties the women could wear medieval gowns and have performers groveling at their feet. Of course they loved that idea Rodriguez quips. Though that event didn t come together his vision for an immersive medieval event drove him to produce a festival two years later. The rest is Renaissance history. The goal is for us to have that suspension of disbelief he says. People come and leave their troubles behind them and enter a whole other time. We do our best when people enter the castle gates to eliminate anything that would remind them of the 21st century. To do that there s a list of rules No phone calls no smoking no watches. Costumes though are highly encouraged. Admission is 21 for adults 9 for children 6 to 11 and free for those 5 and under.

At an age when he could be capitalizing on senior discounts Bernhard Langer is instead having his way with golf s senior circuit the PGA Tour Champions which the Boca Raton resident has ruled for much of the past decade. Last year at age 59 Langer captured four tournaments en route to winning the tour s prize money crown with 3 016 959. It marked the fifth consecutive season that the two-time Masters champion (1985 and 1993) topped the money list--a feat that not even Tiger pulled off during his prime on the PGA Tour. Along the way the native of Germany earned a combined 13 020 160 from 2012 through 2016 with 15 tournaments wins and 84 top-10 finishes. This month Langer not only returns to the site of one of his 29 Champions tour victories he gets to wake up each morning of the tournament in his own bed. The father of four with his wife of three decades Vikki will join a field of senior standouts at the Allianz Championship in Boca Raton (which Langer won in 2010). The World Golf Hall of Famer spoke with Lifestyle about his remarkable late-career success. You ve played some of the best golf on any tour over the past decade. Are you enjoying the sport more now than ever Certainly the last 10 years I ve played some very good and very consistent golf. I m blessed to have a job that I enjoy--and golf is a sport that s much more enjoyable when you play well than when you play like rubbish. Golfers on the senior circuit often have the most success in the years right after turning 50. At age 59 you led the tour in earnings by nearly 1.3 million. How is that possible I still believe to this day that I can improve my technique. If I can do that I m going to hit more fairways and more greens. (Note Langer has led the PGA Tour Champions in scoring average and greens in regulation percentage the past three consecutive years.) On top of that you mature as a player. You get wiser. You learn more about yourself the kind of shots you can and can t pull off on a regular basis. So the strategy should get better the swing should get more consistent. I ve been playing the game for 50 years now. There were a lot of years where I had to make changes. The past few years I ve settled down. There are certain tendencies I must pay attention to but I m not redefining my golf game. Do you ever catch grief from the other players for dominating the tour Oh yes. There s a lot of needling going on. You get comments like Why don t you take a few weeks off and give the rest of us a chance Stuff like that. It s all in good jest. As someone who thrived with the anchor putter how did you feel about the PGA Tour s ban of that putter last year I think everybody who anchored [the putter against the torso] was somewhat concerned especially when you used it for 17 years like I had. I put a lot of hours into perfecting the stroke. Then it was taken away. I spent weeks trying all sorts of techniques and finally decided to try the next best thing which was the unanchored [long putter]. Once I dedicated myself to it and practiced with it I got comfortable. If anchoring were that easy why wasn t everyone doing it There was never more than 10 to 15 percent of golfers using the anchored putting stroke. If it were that much of an advantage 90 percent would have gone to it. I think the whole thing was ridiculous to start with. It didn t serve a purpose. Along with the obvious what do you enjoy about playing the Allianz First off I don t have to get on an airplane or take a long car ride. Mostly I enjoy having family and friends around--people I go to church with friends I ve made over the years in Boca it s great to have them come out and cheer me on and enjoy the tournament. You were two shots off the lead last year heading into the final round of the Masters. What is it about that tournament that brings out the best in you It helps having played the course a couple of hundred times. I know where to go where not to go how certain putts will break. It helps to know that if the pin is here I can t miss the green there--because I ve been there three times and I could never get it up and down. Sometimes it just brings out the best in me knowing that I have to perform at my very highest level. I can t get away with a mediocre round of golf at Augusta National. If I do I ll shoot in the mid to high 70s because the course is so hard. Mostly I just love the challenge. It s a really long course for me now that it s been lengthened. I m hitting 4-irons and 5-irons into greens where my competitors are hitting 7-irons and 8-irons. Those greens were not designed to come in with long irons you have to stop the ball as quickly as possible and the targets are small. So it s difficult for me but if I can hit the ball more or less where I want it to go and my short game is good I can compete. --KEVIN KAMINSKI 18 FEBRUARY 2017 LMGFL.COM Allianz Championship When Feb. 6 12 Where The Old Course at Broken Sound Boca Raton Defending champ Esteban Toledo The field The biggest stars of the PGA Tour Champions descend on Boca for the 11th time to compete for a 1.75 million purse.

I m so excited I m so excited I m so scared a tormented Spano cries out. Funky Buddha Brewery s Russian imperial stout beer made with coffee and vanilla I m So Excited I m So Scared is a sly reference to the over-caffeinated Spano and the after-school sitcom. We come up with an idea for a beer then we search for a concept and a name after we decide on the ingredients says John Linn brand director at Funky Buddha (1201 N.E. 38th St. Oakland Park 954.440.0046 The ingredients will define what we re trying to convey. Inspiration for titles also come from movies and music.

If anything it s just the opposite says Adler 73 chairman of the Boca West Foundation which he spearheaded in May 2010 at the behest of fellow club members. There s no time for rest and my head s always buzzing with ideas. Not that he s complaining. These have been the most rewarding six years of my life. While researching markets that would most benefit from assistance Adler learned at-risk children in south Palm Beach County were underserved. It took my breath away knowing kids were going to bed hungry and sleeping on floors and feeling unsafe in their own homes he says. So he called six likeminded friends and got to work. Fast-forward to 2017 The oncefledgling foundation now has 14 board members a 10-member advisory board and more than 1 000 volunteers. In 2016 1 million was granted by the foundation to 24 local children s charities. The Foundation has worked to make the holidays special for local youngsters including a collaboration with the Boys & Girls Club and Old Navy in Boca Raton that provided 500 kids with 50 shopping sprees. Afterward the children were treated to a pancake breakfast with magicians face painters costumed film characters gifts from Santa take-home food baskets--and lots of sweets. Foundation members got to be the pseudo-grandparents Adler says. That meant we wanted them to have the biggest happiest sugar highs they could. Adler wasn t always hands-on in his charitable work. I was sensitive to issues but didn t have the time or interest to get more involved than writing a check he admits. He credits his kids for inspiring him. Son Michael 47 works with the New York Masons and daughter Lori 49 helps learning-disabled children and volunteers for the ASPCA. After attending Brooklyn Law School Adler worked at his father s talent agency before accepting a job at Columbia Records. It was exciting Adler recalls. Clive Davis was in charge and the Beatles and the Rolling Stones topped the charts. When things got too exciting-- I wasn t just producing records but bailing kids out of jails and hospitals he says--Adler took a job at WCBS radio eventually running another radio station in New York City. He later opened a marketing firm landing contracts with the New York Yankees and New York Islanders. Then when I turned 48 I decided that while I liked work a lot I found golf very interesting. In other words he retired. He s been married to wife Shelly for 52 years. They met on a blind date while students at Boston University. It was love at first sight says Shelly who often helps out at the Foundation. It still is.

SOLOMON LMGFL.COM FEBRUARY 2017 33 B obby Flay is king of the grill thanks in part to the reach of television s Food Network. The celebrity chef has gained grill-master acclaim from starring in such shows as Grill It with Bobby Flay BBQ with Bobby Flay and Throwdown with Bobby Flay the latter of which has made the term throwdown synonymous with competitions. One such competition will bring Flay to Mizner Park Amphitheater in Boca Raton on Feb. 18 for the annual Downtown BBQ Throwdown. Flay will be the guest judge as contestants vie for the title of grand champion and a chance to compete in the 38th annual American Royal World Series of Barbecue held each October in Kansas City. (His February in Florida schedule also includes a stop at the Feb. 22-26 South Beach Wine & Food Festival which is sponsored by the Food Network and Cooking Channel.) While women enjoy the glory of outdoor cooking as much as men Flay says the stereotype has always been the guy with the grilling tool belt who burns the chicken and undercooks the steak. For some reason men feel like the grill is their domain. I say there are two kinds of guys in the world-- those who can grill and those who think they can grill. The native New Yorker says he follows the same fundamentals when judging a barbecue competition as when teaching people how to cook-- including chefs at his restaurants throughout the country. I m looking for flavor contrast in textures and as close to perfect execution as possible in how the food is cooked he says. All of those things are hard to do but grouped together it is really difficult. Whether it s grilling or creating a simple dinner Flay says the one thing that trips up cooks from amateurs to professionals is overcomplicating what has to be done instead of relying on the fundamentals. When it comes to a fundamental of grilling PHOTO COURTESY OF FOOD NETWORK The chef in action on Beat Bobby Flay Flay says to let the grill do its job. The No. 1 mistake people make at the grill is touching the food too much Flay says. Most of the time you ll see me at the grill doing absolutely nothing. Add a light touch of canola oil--it has a mild flavor and high smoke point. Turn the food only once and let the fire be your guide. His go-to choices for grilling are any kind of beef steaks--rib-eye hanger and strip. These are the most mouth-watering he says. Whether you re using spice rubs or marinades it s simple to impart flavor and texture. In the Beginning Flay didn t start out dreaming about a career in the kitchen. There was nothing to aspire to when I was a kid in terms of food he recalls. You didn t think of being a chef it just wasn t on the list. I remember cooking with my mom and making deviled eggs and chocolate pudding and I was interested in how food came together yet not knowing why. I watched Julia Child and the Galloping Gourmet and they were great but I never thought to myself I m going to be cooking on television one day. It was a business interest of his father Bill a Wall Street lawyer that introduced him to the idea of running a restaurant.

Not that I m jaded but when you re in the business awards have a different meaning than when you re looking from the outside in at all the glamour says Brett Ratner the graduate of Miami Beach High School (class of 1986) who has become one of the most influential figures in the motion picture industry. The real joy I get is being on the set or being in pre- or post-production. The joy is in the process. That sentiment rings especially true when it comes to a Ratner project nearly a decade in the making--one that has a Hollywood back story and a prestigious award to its name even though it s not a movie. Last spring the director of Red Dragon X-Men The Last Stand and the Rush Hour series launched The Hilhaven Lodge a blend of bourbon rye and Tennessee whiskey inspired by and named after the legendary Beverly Hills estate Ratner calls home. The collaboration between Ratner and the spirits company Diageo generated immediate buzz in adult beverage circles winning the coveted double gold medal at the 2016 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. That Ratner would add a spirit brand to an already overflowing r sum might seem out of step for someone whose global production and media company (he runs RatPac with billionaire partner James Packer) has co-financed more than 50 films since its debut in 2013--movies that have earned a combined 21 Academy Awards and generated more than 10 billion in worldwide box office. That is until you hear him talk about the process. the Hilhaven Lodge is named after your home in Beverly Hills. Can you share a bit about the history of the estate When I moved to Hollywood one of my dreams was to have an old Hollywood house with a huge history behind it. My broker was like Brett these houses don t become available until someone dies. In 2000 my broker calls me on a Sunday morning. He goes Someone died get over here. As I walked through the gates I knew I had to own the house. ... I bought it in that moment. It had such character such history.

It s not only the liquid and the scents of wood that [resonate with] the property even the bottle design is a living breathing embodiment of the house down to the wood cap. What was your input during the process This wasn t an overnight gig. I wanted to build something that could be here 100 years from now. When I first met with the team at Diageo I said that I wanted a brand named after the house and the tradition of entertaining here. This was nine years ago at the time the [spirits market] was all about vodka and tequila. There was no whiskey market. Brown liquid was dead. I m definitely not psychic but I had an instinct about whiskey for one reason only. I saw the TV show Mad Men and it was a huge hit. Every time something would happen [Don Draper] would grab a glass of whiskey. I said you know what Everything cool from the 50s and 60s is going to come back. Sinatra drank whiskey. Everyone cool I ve ever met drinks whiskey. ... There was pushback to pick another spirit Hilhaven Lodge Ratner s estate in Beverly Hills has a storied history-- including its famed disco room. master architect Gordon Kaufmann to design Hilhaven Lodge which was built in 1927.

He says I m one of the original residents who lived here. Can I come in It was [Hopper s son]. He brought me 8-millimeter home movies of the house along with old pictures. ... Hopper s wife Eleanor Rodgers would say that Hilhaven was never built to be lived in--it was built for parties. The house was then sold to [Petter Lindstrom who was married to] Ingrid Bergman who lived here in the 1940s. [Editor s note The Casablanca co-star earned four of her seven Academy Award nominations during the 40s including a win for the 1944 film Gaslight Bergman became embroiled in a national scandal by leaving Lindstrom for director Roberto Rossellini--who had been living in the Hilhaven Lodge guest house.] In the early 1970s Allan Carr the famous producer of Grease bought it (and lived there into the 1990s). Carr (notorious for throwing overthe-top parties at Hilhaven) added a disco to the house he did that so that John Travolta and Olivia NewtonJohn could have a place to go out. At the time they were so famous from Grease that they couldn t go anywhere. I restored the disco by the way. Celebrities from Justin Timberlake to Dan Aykroyd have launched spirits.

I can t imagine having a better life than in Miami Beach. Is Miami a place that keeps you grounded I brought my grandparents to California to live with me back in 2000. My grandfather died in 2014 but my grandma is still with us she s 93. So having family around keeps me grounded.

We were always telling stories around the table storytelling was such a big part of my culture. I also grew up around some of the most interesting people in the world. Al Malnik who owned The Forge when I was a kid was like my father figure he raised me. His place was such an amazing cesspool of characters from politicians to Colombian drug lords to gangsters.

LMGFL.COM FEBRUARY 2017 41 travel Reunion Grande rises in the distance as golfers walk up the 18th on the Palmer course. COURSES DESIGNED BY THREE OF THE SPORT S GREATEST LEGENDS MAKE REUNION RESORT A TRUE GOLFING PARADISE BY KEVIN KAMINSKI Tee It Up T 42 om Watson doesn t have the golfing r sum of Jack Nicklaus (eight professional major victories to the Golden Bear s 18) or a devoted army like the one that followed Arnold Palmer throughout his career but as I m standing over a tap-in birdie putt on an overcast afternoon at Reunion Resort in Kissimmee my judgment is final. I ll take Watson over Nicklaus and Palmer any day of the week. That s only because I m taming the course that the five-time British Open champion designed at Reunion. OK taming may be a strong word given that I m a 20-handicap. Still the 7 154-yard tract (from the back tees)--with its forgiving fairways and sprawling greens--seems to fit my game more comfortably than my premium all-weather golf glove. I ve managed to escape the dastardly bunkering that comes into play on nearly every shot to card a back-nine 39 (3 over par) complete with a near hole-in-one on the par-3 12th after my soaring 7-iron landed less than a foot from a frontside sand trap kicked right and trickled to within 8 inches of the cup. Conversely the other two courses at Reunion produced far less drama when it came to my game--and FEBRUARY 2017 LMGFL.COM considerably more strokes. But therein lies the beauty of the only destination on the planet to feature layouts designed by Nicklaus Palmer and Watson who account for 33 combined major golf titles. Each course at Reunion is a sight to behold exquisitely manicured and filled with aesthetic details meant to draw the eye and if you re not careful ensnarl your golf ball. Each also possesses its own identity and unique challenges. The Nicklaus the longest of the three at 7 244 yards is a mind-bender designed to force players into thinking about each hole like a chess master. Do I follow the path of least resistance and take what the course gives Or do I attempt a risk reward shot over water or into a postage stamp-sized green that might blow up my scorecard The Palmer much like the late legend who designed it dares your inner swashbuckler to go for broke with holes like the tantalizingly short par-4 seventh protected on three sides by water. It s a tee shot that screams for golfers to break out the big stick and try to reach the green in one. While golf deservedly commands the big letters on the Reunion marquee it s hardly the only draw at a property less than 10 miles from Walt Disney World that encompasses some 2 300 acres. Part of what distinguishes Reunion from the other golf destinations under the Salamander Hotels & Resorts banner (Innisbrook near Tampa Hammock Beach in Palm Coast) is the array of accommodations--luxury hotel rooms at the 11-story Reunion Grande spacious condo- style villas with multiple bedrooms and full kitchens and jaw-dropping vacation home rentals of all sizes. Families have access to nearly a dozen pools throughout the resort including a 5-acre water park that boasts a lazy river a giant flume slide and a beach volleyball court. The property also features six clay tennis courts jogging and biking trails a fitness center sed only The view is surpas and a boutique food at Eleven. by the spa. Dining at Reunion starts with Eleven the e contemporary steak house on the top floor of Reunion Grande that rivals any sophisticated South Florida restaurant with its tight menu of classic starters (pans f seared crab cake barbecued bacon shrimp) prime cuts (peppercorn New York strip 20-ounce porterhouse) and decadent desserts (white chocolate raspberry truffle cheesecake). The property also hosts an Italian bistro (Forte) a restaurant inside the golf clubhouse and casual spots at the water park and the pool at Seven Eagles overlooking the Palmer course. If you time your after-dinner cocktail just right on the poolside balcony at Eleven you can catch Disney s nightly fireworks display in the distance. For those interested in a getaway that doesn t include amusement park lines--but does include challenging world-class golf courtesy of three of the sport s greatest legends--it s the perfect place to watch the show.

Pouring dollars into her business-- which in Rosse s case included an allencompassing 1.8 million interior facelift last year--ultimately would mean little if she didn t also invest in her people. The mentality for restaurants has always been that everyone works 80 hours a week if they re not working that much they re of no use to you says Rosse 36. I woke up one day and thought this isn t right. It s not good for our employees and it s not good for me. So we started giving our managers two days off we capped hours and we started setting these boundaries. People now enjoy what they do they want to come to work they re refreshed and they have a life. That was a huge turning point for me to realize that I was working in my business and not on my business. When I flipped that it changed everything. Change both unexpected and wellconceived has been one of the pillars upon which Rosse has built Oceans 234 which serves upward of 800 people on a typical Sunday. It s a business that s been part of her life for nearly two decades dating back to when it was the last of a statewide diner chain known as the Ranch House. Rosse s mother-in-law who owned the building and property planned to bulldoze the Ranch House and open a seafood house that her daughter-in-law and son would run. But in 2001 Rosse s husband died in his sleep from an aneurysm at age 37. Instead of abandoning the project Rosse s motherin-law who lived in New Hampshire asked her to oversee the transition and become director of operations. In 2002 Oceans 234 opened with a 22-year-old at the helm. We joke about it now Rosse says of her former mother-in-law. She tells me How stupid was I having you carry all that weight--and putting 100 percent of my finances in your control But on the flip side how fortunate am I that it worked out the way that it did. ... She needed someone to run her restaurant I needed someone to have faith in me. For the better part of 10 years Rosse worked around the clock to figure out what she didn t know about the restaurant industry. She attended seminars she picked the brains of other restaurateurs--she even opened a second restaurant the Whale Raw Bar in Parkland which she sold in 2013 after a six-year run. Rosse used that money to help purchase Oceans 234 outright the same year. Since then everything from Rosse s philosophical approach to the upscale restaurant s design has undergone a transformation. The latter required Oceans 234 to go dark for three months while the construction company (A.W. Rosse & Associates) run by her husband of two-plus years Anthony Rosse gutted the interior and eliminated visual obstructions to infuse the restaurant with an open contemporary aesthetic. Then there s the seasonal lunch and dinner menus which continue to undergo their own evolution under the guidance of executive chef Brian Cantrell. One of the challenges for Cantrell who was hired last September after stints at The Office in Delray Beach and Blue Moon Fish Company in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is to elevate without alienating. The restaurant s diverse but loyal clientele--locals snowbirds vacationers from Europe and beyond-- expects a certain level of sophistication at Oceans 234. But it also doesn t want the new chef to mess with its beloved lobster mac n cheese. Putting out a plate that has three ounces of food with a bunch of molecular gastronomy touches won t go over here Cantrell says. At the same time I can make a nice grouper dish and add a powder or foam that makes people excited. We want to present cuisine they re familiar with but we also want to educate them along the way. The goal isn t to freak people out but you do want to provide a few moments that make them go Wow that s cool. Cantrell successfully manages the balancing act with such appetizers as grilled octopus and chorizo with tomatoes fingerling potatoes olives and black garlic vinaigrette and chicken tostados with ahi panca queso fresco and avocado--as well as entr es such as grilled snapper in a tomato-based Veracruz sauce or diver scallops on butternut squash puree with curried cauliflower and Moroccan tapenade. He even tweaked the sauce for the lobster mac n cheese--but don t tell anyone. I interviewed so many people for that position but when Brian and I talked we had the same value system for how we viewed the business Rosse says. We both believed in the balance of being creative yet familiar. We have the same beliefs regarding the financials of the business. And I think he was attracted to our intent regarding how we treat people. We ve been in a constant progression the past several years. And every day every month we ve gotten better.
