Publisher’s Notes It is health that is real wealth. This is the reason that METRO is proud to bring the resource listings of the Best Doctors in America® to our readers. The listings provide a good start when seeking a specialist for a particular health concern. I hope you will use this valuable community resource and certainly wish you and your family continued health. Special thanks to Photographer, Amy Pezzicara and Photo Assistant, Nicole Abbett, for capturing the great images in Tampa Bay Fall Style Guide, shot on location at the 1930 Grande Room and around Ybor City. Stylist Linda Zipkin, Makeup Artist, Monique McLaughlin and Hair Colorist & Stylist, Jackie Cupples, transformed the beautiful models at the day-long shoot. Meet the new executive pastry chef at the Seminole Hard Rock Tampa, Chef Stephan Schubert, and join me in wishing him all the best as he competes in the Global Chefs Pastry Challenge in Greece later this month. Discover the island of Dominican Republic with a stay at the brand new Riu Republica in Punta Cana. The allinclusive, all-adult resort is offering fantastic rates and it’s the perfect romantic getaway or extended girls’ weekend. Social and charity events are filling up the fall calendar. METRO is a proud supporter of the Tampa Bay area and we look forward to seeing you around town.
