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...

The decline in medical marijuana: As the rest of the nation goes medically green, Colorado’s dispensaries are taking a turn toward recreational cannabis

There are no medical marijuana dispensaries in Pagosa Springs, a town that has four recreational dispensaries. The last option shuttered its medical side of the dispensary earlier this year, leaving medical patients in Pagosa, about 60 miles from Durango, with two choices: they can buy products from the recreational side of a...

Cucumber margaritas and carbs at Mmm Que Rico in Farmington

The building that houses the Mexican restaurant on the outskirts of the main drag in Farmington looked pretty nondescript as we pulled up alongside it. There wasn’t much color to the outside stucco walls, and the parking lot was suspiciously empty, especially for a Thursday afternoon. Perhaps our plan to check out Mmm Que...

Changes, they are a’comin’: Hey, readers. We have a big announcement.

Hey there, readers. We have some news for you. Want to know what it is? Of course you do, but I like to drag out the suspense as long as possible. A little further...a little further. All right. Here we go.

So, the news is that DGO Mag is expanding, which we think is pretty darn rad. To kick off the new year, we will...

Get Outta Town: Tinkertown Museum, land of wooden wonders

There is a world created by a former carnival worker that you need to see. It’s a world of pure imagination (yes, we stole that from Willy Wonka), and it’s within a day’s drive of Durango. We’re talking about Tinkertown Museum in Sandia Park, New Mexico.

It’s hard to describe the world that Ross Ward, who once worked as...

Champagne is for suckers: Stop being lame and use these off-road hacks to make mimosas instead

The combination of champagne and orange juice is delicious, but it’s also (prepare yourselves) a kinda effing boring way to make a mimosa. Everybody makes a mimosa with OJ and champagne. Don’t you want to impress your friends? Don’t you want to be different? Of course you do. And that’s why you should try out some of these...

Booze and breakfast: These Four Corners brunch spots are proof that there is an upside to being an adult

Brunch. It’s one of those luxuries that makes being an adult worth the hassle. Sure, we’re stuck paying bills and cleaning messes and doing things like, ugh, working for a living, but in return, we get to laze our weekends away drinking too much booze and eating too much food at delicious rituals like brunch.

And,...

Cortez’s Burger Boy Drive In deserves your burger-lovin’ business

The little burger joint in Cortez had great reviews across the board on Yelp, but I still couldn’t muster up much hope for my food as we pulled into the parking spot that would serve as our “table” at Burger Boy Drive In. This spot, right off the main drag in Cortez, had been packed every time I’d driven by it, and to be...

Beer Belly’s in Aztec is the best burger place you’ve never been to

“I hurt myself today, to see if I still feel, I focus on the pain, the only thing that’s real…”

The haunting lyrics from the brilliant Johnny Cash cover of “Hurt,” an old Nine Inch Nails’ song, bellow out over the restaurant speakers as we make our way to the counter at Beer Belly’s Burgers & BBQ, a little dive...

Silverton’s Golden Block Brewery should be on every beer lover’s list

It’s borderline freezing outside, but the tables in Golden Block Brewery and Restaurant in Silverton are almost full. The bar doesn’t have a single open barstool, either – a bit disappointing, considering we stopped by this Greene Street eatery to drown our sorrows in booze.

We snag a table near the open pizza kitchen,...

A baller review of meal boxes from Green Chef and City Market

Attention, meal delivery service fanatics. We’re back with a second round of reviews for your reading pleasure. Our hope for you this chilly fall season is that if WE try to make food from a few specialty, out-of-the-box meal delivery boxes, it will convince you that there is life outside of Hello Fresh.

Last week, we...

Peach Dish and Sun Basket are meal delivery boxes that should be on your list

Hey there, meal delivery service fans. We know you like your boxes of fresh veggies and straight-off-the-farm meats and cheeses, and we get it. Life is busy, and having a box chock full o’ all the ingredients you need for dinner dropped at your door is baller af.

We think you need to broaden your horizons, though....
