The elotes at Switchback aren’t the spicy corn snacks of my childhood, but they’re delicious anyway

When I was a young kid growing up in deep south Texas, elotes were a staple of my diet. Many of my friends’ parents worked at the maquiladoras – American factories that are run just across the border in Mexico to get around things like environmental and labor regulations – so we’d spend a lot of time running around the...

Rudy’s in Silverton serves up the best Mexican food in the Four Corners

It was pretty late the night we stumbled into Rudy’s Restaurant, a little Mexican restaurant off of Greene Street in Silverton. It wasn’t our intention to eat at this little dive – or anywhere, really – but the howling winds and downpour at our campsite just down the road had other ideas. There was no way to light a fire in...

The best restaurant in Pagosa Springs is a food truck

“If you come between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m., we can most easily accommodate you...”

That’s the response we received after contacting Sage Mobile Eatery in Pagosa Springs about stopping by to check out their food. We don’t normally warn restaurants we’re coming, but this food truck, located right off 160, across from a gas...

12-year-old New Mexico girl popped for DWI

Police in Alamagordo, New Mexico, caught a 12-year-old girl being popped for a DWI after a police chase on tape, and the whole thing is, well, as crazy as it sounds.

Here’s what happened. The middle school driver was popped earlier this month after police spotted a suspicious vehicle and attempted to pull it over,...

Burger Theory, Durango’s newest burger joint, isn’t perfect, but shows some promise

There is a learning curve for every new restaurant, one in which the staff learns how to make all of the pieces – the kitchen, the bar, the wait staff, the bussers, and the like – come together seamlessly. Right now, Burger Theory, Durango’s newest burger spot, is in the midst of that curve.

Not that that’s necessarily...

Hometown Hamburgers in Farmington is a killer, no-frills burger joint

There isn’t much to the white building that houses Hometown Hamburgers. This little locally owned stop sits right on Main Street in downtown Farmington, but if you didn’t know it was there, you’d easily drive right past it. To do so would be to miss a little burger gem, one that warrants a visit or two when you’re in that...

Don’t eat crappy tortillas: Grab some from Farmington’s Tortillas Doña Maria instead

I have a confession: I am a picky tortilla eater. I will side-eye the hell out of you if you whip out a bag of Mission Tortillas for anything other than to use as poor man frisbees, and if you try to serve me enchiladas on flour tortillas, you will go on my blocked list. It’s fresh tortillas or bust.

And, before you...

FYI: You can get bull-testicle flavored beer in Denver, but we’re not sure why

File this one under a hard “nope.” Apparently the good folks at Denver’s Wynnkoop Brewery have decided a beer that tastes like hops, barley, and bull balls is a good thing.

That’s right. No bull ... here. Wynnkoop’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is a thing, and it’s a thing you can drink. The roasted bull testicle brew...

The oiled Aussie hunks of Thunder From Down Under are coming to Sky Ute Casino

Hey, laydeeeeez (and gentlemen, of course). Guess who’s comin’ to Sky Ute Casino? That’s right. It’s the tanned-and-oiled Aussie hunks of man-meat from the Thunder From Down Under, a group of male dancers best known for being the scantily-clad, thrusting, bachelorette-thrilling entertainment at Excalibur in Las...

Our new favorite thing: Snoop Dogg and Matthew McConaughey karaoke

Want to see Snoooooo-oooooop and ol’ stoner “Sure be cool if you would” Matthew McConaughey sing a little carpool karaoke? Of freaking course you do, cause it’ll make your day, week, and month infinitely better.

In case you missed it, you can catch Snoop D-Oh-Double-G and his “The Beach Bum” costar McConaughey, whose...

The Lost Cajun in Pagosa ain’t Nola, but it’s close enough

New Orleans holds a special place in my heart. As a native Texan, I spent decades living about 4.5 hours from the city by car, and I took advantage of that fact ... often.

One of the most alluring things about that city (aside from the copious amounts of booze) is the glorious food. Stand in the French Quarter or the...

Get Outta Town: The bomb bunker hidden deep within Cheyenne Mountain

While Cheyenne Mountain is hardly the most visually captivating mountain outside of Colorado Springs – Pike’s Peak takes that Rocky Mountain cake – it is home to one of the most astounding man-made features in the area: Cheyenne Mountain Complex.

Here’s the gist. Back in the 1960s, the world was worried about the Cold...
