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...

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...

Huge servings and carb overload at Aztec Family Restaurant

Let me start out by saying this: there is nothing fancy about Aztec Family Restaurant in – you guessed it – Aztec, New Mexico.

Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you. It’s just a fact. This little family restaurant, right off Aztec Boulevard, is the epitome of what I’d call “down home.” It’s quaint, kinda kitschy in...

Stonefish Sushi & More should be on your restaurant rotation

It was only about 5:30 p.m. on a weeknight when we stopped by Stonefish Sushi & More, but the little sushi restaurant, located right off the main street that runs through Cortez, was already poppin’. And by that I mean there were no tables at the inn, friends. People were already waiting for a table to turn.

I’m not...

Activists are trying to decriminalize magic mushrooms in Denver, giving even more clout to the Mile High City moniker

Shrooms. Eat the right ones and you might end up with super cool hallucinations. Eat the wrong ones and you’ll be bordering on death. You win some, you lose some, right? Pro tip: DON’T EAT THE ALL WHITE ONES. Those are NOT magic.

Anyway, some activists in Denver are looking to win a different kind of mushroom battle....

Mancos Brewing Company: level-headed, tried and true beers

The ladies bathroom at Mancos Brewing Company is a strange one. I know that’s an odd way to start off a story about a brewery, but it’s what kept coming to mind when I was pondering a lead for this story: the bathroom.

What, pray tell, is so weird about the bathroom, you ask? Well, let me tell you. I stopped by Mancos...

Happy weed-iversary, Colorado! Legal cannabis turns five today

Happy anniversary, Colorado! In case you weren’t aware, January 1 was the fifth anniversary of legal weed in Colorado, which...you know...is why we’re wishing you a happy anniversary. Perhaps we should call it a weed-iversary. Who knows.

While it may seem like yesterday that the first pot shop popped up in Colorado, it...

Take a walk on the wild side at Cortez’s WildEdge Brewing Collective

Hey baby. Take a walk on the wild side.

And by wild side I mean the wild side of beer, which you can do at WildEdge Brewing Collective in Cortez. (Side note: If you haven’t been to Cortez lately, I highly recommend you make a trip out that way. There are so many activities!)

I ended up at WildEdge Brewing on the...
