Hi there, new coverage areas! We are so stoked to welcome Mancos, Farmington, Aztec, Dolores, Pagosa Springs, Ignacio, and Cortez on board.
This is our first official issue with all of our new coverage areas in tow, and we’re itchin’ to dig into the local vibe of each new place. Cortez, we’re ready to try all your beer and food. Mancos, we want to learn more about what makes your community awesome, unique, or just plain weird, and again, we want to drink your beer.
We’ve already had some killer suggestions of what to cover in our new areas, too. Just the other day, a friend was telling us about a sushi place in Cortez that he frequents for bomb ass rolls and cheap lunch. He talked it up so much that we knew we had to get out there, so don’t be surprised if you read about that sometime soon. Farmington – you have so many cool restaurants we want to try. Pagosa Springs – there are a bunch of bars we hear we need to get to. Silverton – you have a funnel cake shop we’ve been dying to try for months. When does it open?! And Santa Fe and Albuquerque have some badass shows coming up, too. So many things to explore!
We want to do it all. We want to hear the weird legends, histories, and stories of the Southwest. We want to learn where the best places to eat and drink are. We want to seek out all the hidden gems and hole-in-the-wall things to do, places to see, and things to eat and drink – the places that aren’t necessarily in the guidebooks.
And, since you guys are the experts, let us know if there’s something in your area you think is just too good to pass up. We’re all ears.
In this issue, you’ll find stories on breweries in Cortez and Mancos, and some crazy anecdotes from the Search and Rescue heroes in La Plata County. Next issue, who knows! The Four Corners world is ours.
So, with that, we extend a huge DGO welcome to all of our new coverage areas, and a loving hello to Durango, too. We can’t wait to meet you.
