Ridgway, the red-headed stepchild of the San Juan Skyway, is a great area for foodies

When I told my friends I was headed to Ridgway for the weekend, it didn’t really surprise me when the response was, “Why?” It’s not that anyone hates on Ridgway; it just seems like a middle-of-nowhere kind of town, nestled unceremoniously between Telluride and Ouray on the San Juan Skyway. Weekend trips are usually planned...

A Denver roaster plans to offer magic mushroom coffee and tea

Black. Sugar-fueled. Just a tiny amount of half-and-half. Chai. We all like our morning beverages one way or another but Denver coffee roaster Strava Craft Coffee is going to start adding a little magic to their brews.

According to Westword, in July, Strava announced plans to offer psilocybin-infused coffee beans and...

All beers go to heaven at Taos Mesa Brewing

In the Southwest, it’s an automatic assumption that you’re going to test out the local brewery when visiting another town. We pride ourselves on being amateur craft beer connoisseurs, so we go in ready to judge on the atmosphere, number of selections, flavor, and what kind of food pairings they offer. There’s a lot to...

WTF is sneak some zucchini onto your neighbor’s porch day?

When we moved to the Durango in 2016, our neighbors were super welcoming and kind. “You’ve picked a good neighborhood,” they told us. “We never lock our front doors, except during zucchini season, of course.”

The “of course” addition to that sentence is aimed at anyone who has ever gardened. Those who haven’t may not...

Your favorite local sparkling water now comes in cans

Skagua, Ska Brewing’s sparkling lemon-flavored water has such a strong fandom in Durango that Ska Owner Dave Thibodeau often catches people sneaking into the brewhouse with containers, filling them up, and quietly leave without ordering anything. The beverage is free, but it goes to show how far people are willing to go for,...

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...

An open letter to breakfast cooks everywhere

Dear breakfast and brunch cooks,

Hey there. I know you’re tired and grumpy as you read this. Trust me, I’ve been there. I spent years waking up at the crack of dawn to sling eggs and French toast to hungover guests, all while feeling the effects of my own drinking session from the previous night. Although you rarely...

It’s on: There is now a green chile beef between NM and CO

We all knew this day would come eventually, and here it is. There is now a war of the green chile variety between Colorado Governor Jared Polis and New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, and it is fire.

This social media battle was initiated by Polis after Whole Foods Market announced it would be stocking Pueblo...

Run for suds at the Ska Brewing 5K Beer Run

There are very few people around these here parts who wouldn’t take a brisk jog, or hell, even sprint, for beer.

As one of Durango’s sudsy staples, Ska Brewing knows that, and that’s why they’re participating in the Colorado Brewery Running Series, aka the Ska Brewing 5K Beer Run. On July 14, all you beer fanatics out...

Cold beer and music at Purgatory Resort’s Summer Brew

Liquid gold will soon be running aplenty at Purgatory Resort, and by that, we mean beer. Lots and lots of beer. If you’re lucky enough to get in, Purg’s upcoming Summer Brew will offer endless amounts of sudsy samples to its thirsty attendees.

You’ll want to pack a lawn chair or a picnic blanket for this festival...

El Moro’s bone marrow: It’s the most frickin’ delicious thing in the world

There are few foods I’d suggest sharing with your furry friend, but bone marrow is absolutely one of them. I mean, there’s a reason your dog obsessively gnaws away at a bone long after the meat scraps have disappeared from the outside: He knows what’s inside is good for him! Bone marrow; it’s what makes bone broth thick and...

Sandwich wars: Cheba Hut founder calls Quiznos “bandwagon douchebags” for Magic Mushroom Melt

There’s some name-calling drama going on in the Colorado sandwich world.

For the second time in the last several months, Cheba Hut founder Scott Jennings had some choice words for other food companies.

Last month, he referred to Carl’s Jr. as “bandwagon douchebags” for their CBD burger. This month, he’s deemed...
