Let’s do Cannabis Crawl the right way — in October

Hi friends. It’s me again — back with some updates on Cannabis Crawl. Remember how we had to postpone the OG dates for the Cannabis Crawl recently? Yeah, we’re unfortunately going to have to postpone them yet again.

Here’s the deal. While things are starting to open back up in Durango, we don’t feel like we can safely...

Show us your crappy quarantine haircuts

Did you lose your mind while stuck inside on quarantine, driven mad by the long wisps of man-bangs or natural roots sprouting from your head? Did you take those matters into your own scissored hands and cut your hair like a very drunk Edward Scissorhands? Uhhh, hell yes. Please let us see.

And by that we mean please let...

The Ardent Nova decarboxylator is a cannabis product you never knew you needed

The first time I tried to decarboxylate some cannabis flower and infuse oil I almost burned down my house. I’m not exaggerating, either — I really did. I’d read online that you can infuse oil on the stove using very low heat, so I loaded a pan with coconut oil, cannabis, and a few drops of water.

Needless to say, the...

Awww yeah! It’s almost time for Cannabis Crawl 2020!

It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiime of the year ­– for potheads and weed fanatics, anyway. (Don’t worry. We’re right there with you. We love the sticky icky, too.)

If you’re wondering what we’re singing about, we’ll put you out of your misery and just tell you: It’s almost time for Cannabis Crawl 2020! That’s right; the...

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...
