Love it or hate it: Haircuts

Love it

Living in the small, western town of Mancos with its low-key, rural fashion, I’ve come to treasure my quarterly visits to the “Clip-&-Curl,” as I like to call all hair salons. As far as I’m concerned, haircuts are gifts from the good sweet Lord above, heaven-sent mini chair vacations I greatly enjoy for the...

Get Smart about whiskey drinking

You may have noticed the weather. It’s cold. Real cold. Oh sure, you could zip your puffy coat up to your ears, or you could let Lucas Hess, manager of El Moro Spirits & Tavern, teach you how to put a fire in your belly.

With so many choices, it’s altogether too easy for a whiskey virgin to quickly become totally...

‘My biggest surprise was that it just [bleeping] worked’

In gas stations, convenience stores and tourist shops around the world, travelers and passers-by can usually find a rack or two featuring little pieces of adhesive paper to help them remember their journeys. In 2014, Durango’s Bryant Aucoin went on a climbing trip to Yosemite, and, with an entrepreneurial epiphany, returned...

Savage Love: She’s mad that I’m not mad. What to do?

My girlfriend of six months hooked up with one of my buds. They were both drunk at a party, and I was out of town for a sports thing. I wasn’t angry when she “confessed.” I thought it was hot and said we should maybe have a threesome with the dude. I’m not interested in being with a guy, but I’d be down with a M/M/F...

Durango is groovy, but here’s one thing it doesn’t have

With thanksgiving around the corner, I’d like to give a little thanks. Words can’t describe how fortunate we all are to call a place like Durango home. But there is room for improvement. We are missing a crucial piece that any well-established town has: a quality dance floor.

While chatting with Flow, an exchange...

Foaming soap and Cardboard: Some days the world changes

Remember when foaming soap wasn’t a thing? You’d be in a public restroom, go to wash your hands and have to, what, create the lather yourself? I can’t imagine a world without it now, but back in 2003, I was in the bathroom of a devastatingly hip restaurant on San Antonio’s famed Riverwalk and I encountered foaming soap for...

Horoscope: Virgos, it’s not your fault, but suck it up anyway

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

If you feel confused about political, religious or racial issues, don’t commit to anything. And don’t let others push you into taking a stance for which you are not ready.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)

Don’t beat yourself up if financial plans didn’t turn out how you’d hoped....

Savage Love: Being ‘monogamish’ is hot – except when it sucks

I’ve always been a big believer in the common-sense obviousness that monogamy is hard. Additionally, I like the idea of my wife getting [bleeped]. I don’t have any desire to be denigrated or emasculated; I just get off on the idea of her being satisfied and a little transgressive. Early in our relationship, we talked about...

Love it or hate it: Exercise

Love it

When I was 15, my soccer coach announced at the beginning of the season that we were going to do 5-mile runs. At 6 a.m. In March.

If you have experienced a crackling-cold Wyoming morning, you can imagine my reluctance. But I pried myself out of my delicious nest of blankets in the black pre-dawn and...

Tiny houses & creepy babies: Pushing the limits of creativity

Remember when you could do just one thing and be called a creative genius, one thing that we now look at and are all like, “Well, duh”?

Like babies in Medieval paintings made to look like creepy, miniature adults. Someone finally came along, someone undoubtedly with “The Elder” attached to the end of his name and said,...
