Boon’s in Farmington features Thai barbecue and friendly atmosphere

Did you know that Farmington has a Thai barbecue place?

I didn’t – but then again up until recently, I hadn’t really explored the city’s downtown area. I’ve always been content shopping among the chains and big box stores on the northeastern side of town, venturing further south on trips to specifically visit Three...

Durango’s cheesesteak stand strives for authentic South Philly experience

If you’ve walked through downtown Durango around lunchtime between October and May, you’ve probably noticed the cheesesteak guy.

Join us in giving Lauter Haus, Farmington’s newest brewery, a hoppy welcome

Every time a new brewery opens, an angel gets its wings. OK, yes we stole that very innocent line from “It’s a Wonderful Life,” but it doesn’t make it any less true.

Farmington has been blessed with a new brewery, Lauter Haus Brewing Company, and we were so psyched about it that we road tripped on down to New Mexico to...

Looking for chocolate? Creede has a festival for that

A rational person would use the two days after Thanksgiving to take it easy and eat light, leftover-based meals. Here’s an alternative: gorge on dessert.

Over the past few years, Southwest Colorado’s chocolate festivals have been vanishing. Durango’s impressive Chocolate Fantasia, a fundraiser for Volunteers of America,...

Indigenous, LGBTQ-friendly Albuquerque brewery opening Farmington taproom

Farmington fans of craft beer rejoice – your local options are growing rapidly.

Sorry beer purists, hard seltzers are here to stay

If you didn’t have a White Claw Hard Seltzer hangover this summer, were you even there? Apparently not as White Claws sold out across the country this year.

According to CNN, spiked sparkling water has turned into a billion-dollar industry. Hard seltzer sales hit the roof and even surpassed $1 billion for the past year...

The pizza at Aztec’s 550 Brewing is not a joke – in fact, it’s the best

The first time I noticed 550 Brewing was when a group of friends and I visited Rubio’s in Aztec this summer. We were relaxing on the outdoor patio enjoying a bowl of chips and queso when we noticed the brewery next door. There were lights, live music, and a group of people out enjoying beers in the brewery’s outdoor seating...

Billy Goat Saloon’s Ate-1122 does bar food right

Billy Goat Saloon has been, and remains, one of my favorite Bayfield haunts – it’s made up of an eclectic group of staff and patrons, and it’s just weird enough that everyone feels welcome.

It was for this reason that I was excited to try out a new restaurant that opened inside the bar, Ate-1122, which recently started...

Kennebec Café and Bakery, a little gem on the way to Mancos

On your way to Mancos, La Plata Canyon, or the Hesperus ski area, you may notice the Kennebec Café and Bakery. In place of the solitary buildings that once housed Chip’s Place (diner and motel) now stands a local favorite for casual-but-fine dining, away from busy Main Street. I decided to go have brunch with a couple others...

Hair of the Goat: A cure for your hangover and your Bloody Mary thirst

We’ve all had our fair share of late nights and early mornings, many of which required a hair of the dog concoction to get us through those times when our mouths are bone dry, the sun feels demonically bright, an invisible screw is being drilled into the side of our temples, and anything with a non-neutral smell makes us wish...

Francisco’s Restaurante on Main: a staple for their hospitality and food

For over 50 years, Francisco’s Restaurante and Cantina on Main Avenue has been a local favorite for New Mexican and Mexican food. Although it has varied in size, menu, and public reception, the Garcia family has always been known for their hospitality and consistent food.

My dining partner and I arrived on a quiet...

Bottom Shelf Brewery is top shelf Bayfield

There’s a corner of Bayfield that feels as much like home as anywhere in Durango. It’s the only brewery in this quaint mountain town and, well, it’s one of our favorite weekend cold beer hot spots.
