Editor’s Note

If January was all slickers and galoshes, February arrived with season-inappropriate beach brollies and flip flops. Mother Nature seems to be having us on…presenting us with climates, which do not match those expected for the season or ones in agreement with our memories of prior years. El Niño is apparently an enfant terrible with a sense of humor. #GlobalWarming.

As March rolls in, we look forward to the start of the 2016 IndyCar season on the 13th with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in Florida. Our experiences covering the race and meeting the people involved in the sport were nothing short of spectacular…and we can’t wait to do it all over again. As a lead-in to that effort, we sat down with IndyCar driver Josef Newgarden to talk about his life as a professional racecar driver.

Fluctuating climate did not dampen our love of fashion…so you’ll see offerings from around the globe and across the spectrum via New York Fashion Week, Serbia Fashion Week, Art Hearts Fashion and PUMA by Rihanna. Moving from designers to art by design, we review the 2016 Oscars, the BAFTA and the Grammy awards.

Early February was the time for the 50th Super Bowl and we present a wrap-up of both the game and the galas surrounding the end of season capper, which bridged our usual categories of High Notes (The Throwback Jam & Snoop Dog) and Philanthropy (Bleacher Report, Steinberg and the Taste of the NFL).

In consideration of all things non-football, we present our coverage of the PGA Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Rolex FARR 40 and the pre-season San Francisco Giants Fest, And lest we ignore our health, an offering discussing Antibiotic resistance.

This writing finds me still exploring the range of our magazine’s at-home tech suite with ties to the main office at The Chateau By The Sea. All seems to be working and I feel the number of 4K screens will save me from visiting the spa for pre-trip tanning…but I can tell my moisturizer budget is going to need a boost. Enjoy!
