a new look

As you flip through this issue, you’ll notice there’s something different. It’s the look, the feel, and a whole lot more. After five years, it was time for a redesign of the magazine, and the results can be seen on every page—a cleaner, sleeker style than ever before. We’ve reorganized several departments to make it easier to go straight to the categories and types of stories you look for every month. Plus, we’ve added new pieces to Insider. For example, we live in paradise yet often don’t take advantage of the many ways to explore our own town. Why is that? Why not act like you’re on vacation? Turn to page 21 for “Tourist for a Day,” where we showcase Naples and the surrounding area through the eyes of our visitors.…

Q&A: WAYNE HOFFMAN Mind Games Raised in humble beginnings in Reading, Pennsylvania, acclaimed mentalist Wayne Hoffman discovered a passion for his craft after receiving a magic spell at age 8. As a mind reader and magician, his big break came on the TV show Phenomenon more than a decade ago, and he later performed on numerous national programs, from The Ellen DeGeneres Show to the popular daytime talk show Pickler & Ben. There is always a cacophony of oohs and aahs after he has read the minds of guests at events like Naples Botanical Garden’s April Foolin’ in the Garden and Naples Winter Wine Festival vintner dinners. Based in Naples, Hoffman will perform September 26, for an evening at Venue Naples that includes a gourmet dinner by Crave Culinaire. (waynehoffman.com) NI: What sparked…

Philanthropist Myra Janco Daniels learned the joy of giving as a first-grader when her grandmother gave her 50 cents and encouraged her to give part of it away—or give it back. “I went to bed that night and thought about two kids at school who sat in front of me and had holes in their shoes,” recalls Daniels, now 93. “I secretly put a dime in each of their desks and wrote a note that said: ‘To a friend, from a friend.’ They were so excited. I saw what joy two dimes meant.” Sharing would become a constant for Daniels. At 24, she opened an advertising business on a shoestring and made $1 million by the end of the year. “I gave back to [my employees] before I took anything,” she…

1. Sweet Liberty Catamaran Sailing & Boat Tours has been raising its sails over the Gulf for more than two decades, and one of its highlights is the sunset cruise. The two-hour sail on the 53-foot catamaran, the largest of its kind in Southwest Florida, takes off from Naples City Dock and ventures into the Gulf of Mexico. As the sun sinks into the water, watch for an encounter with dolphin, osprey, and other wildlife along the way. It’s a perfect experience for date night, family time, or any time, as guests are welcome to bring aboard food and drink. A picnic basket filled with light bites and a bottle of Champagne sounds pretty amazing, don’t you think? (sweetliberty.com) 2. Naples Princess, a tourist mainstay for more than 25 years, is…

fashion meets art

Upon entering Casanova Fashion and Art in the Village on Venetian Bay, Naples, one can’t help but wonder: Is this a fashion boutique or an art gallery? It’s actually two businesses under one roof, owned by Keith Davison and Marina Montmorency, the husband-and-wife team who first began mixing art with fashion 13 years ago. Behind door number one is Casanova Art (casanovaart.com). When you wander through the aisles of whimsy, curiosity guides you through a labyrinth of glass, Venetian masks, gilded mirrors, one-of-a-kind artworks, and chuckling clowns made of blown Murano glass that give a nod to childhood memories. “When I visit Italy once or twice a year, I travel to the manufacturers’ showrooms and when I see a piece that is exceptional, I purchase it without hesitation,” Davison says. “I buy…
