Dolores River Brewery gives you that beer and pizza magic combination you’re looking for

Beers and pizza are already a pairing that go perfectly hand in hand, but when you take that pairing and grab a seat at Dolores River Brewery, the combination goes from perfect to downright magical.

It was our first time visiting the small town of about 1,000 people, and by the time we arrived at Dolores’ oldest...

St. Patty’s Day is the best holiday of the year, even if nobody knows who Patrick is

I’m sorry to burst your bubble, but Christmas is not the best holiday of the year. It’s not Easter or Thanksgiving or Halloween, either. It’s definitely St. Patrick’s Day. I mean, I couldn’t really tell you who Patrick is or why we’re celebrating him (sorry, that’s probably sacrilegious), but I’m all about any excuse to cook...

FYI: You can get bull-testicle flavored beer in Denver, but we’re not sure why

File this one under a hard “nope.” Apparently the good folks at Denver’s Wynnkoop Brewery have decided a beer that tastes like hops, barley, and bull balls is a good thing.

That’s right. No bull ... here. Wynnkoop’s Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout is a thing, and it’s a thing you can drink. The roasted bull testicle brew...

What you should be drinking on St. Patrick’s Day

The Four Corners might not be Chicago or New Orleans when it comes to hot-mess St. Patrick’s Day partying, but we still drink like Irish-lovin’ mofos. So, if you’re hurtin’ for something to drink this upcoming St. Patty’s Day instead of just a six-pack with green clovers on the cans, make a note of these on-message Irish-y...

The Lost Cajun in Pagosa ain’t Nola, but it’s close enough

New Orleans holds a special place in my heart. As a native Texan, I spent decades living about 4.5 hours from the city by car, and I took advantage of that fact ... often.

One of the most alluring things about that city (aside from the copious amounts of booze) is the glorious food. Stand in the French Quarter or the...

Farmington’s Taco Box is a surprising afternoon delight

I’m going to try really hard to get through this without making too many inappropriate references to taco boxes in this review about Taco Box, a Mexican restaurant in Farmington, New Mexico, but I want you all to know how difficult this has been for me.

With that being said, I’ve been wanting to check out what I...

Valentine’s Day drinks to spark the romance

Valentine’s Day is for spending money you don’t have on someone you may or may not break up with in six months. ER, we mean, it’s a day for celebrating your love of your partner! We love love! DEFINITELY about your relationship and not a capitalistic scheme. ANYWHO. With that effort, sometimes it requires the help of alcohol...

Animas Chocolate and Coffee Co.: A cacao bean love story

OK, you guys, I’m just going to say it: I hate Valentine’s Day. Maybe it’s the rebel in me who doesn’t want to do what “they” tell me I should, but mostly I’m just lazy. I’m supposed to make reservations months in advance for dinner on a Thursday night? Spend money on love notes and skimpy red dresses? Phhhh, no thanks;...

Reader burrito requests: We’re still trying all those breakfast burrito places you told us to visit, pt 2

Y’all. There are a lot of breakfast burrito places around here that you want us to try. Good thing breakfast burritos are God’s gift to breakfast and you guys have excellent taste in food. Still, we will definitely need a (long) break from burritos after this. Here are some more of your Durango favorites that we had the...

I swear, I drank all that mezcal with worm salt for research...

When you walk into a mezcal bar in Mexico speaking sub-par Spanish, you probably shouldn’t lead off with, “I know nothing about mezcal, what should I order?” I mean, you can (and I did), but you should almost definitely expect to get swindled doing so. Maybe it’s my charming good looks, or perhaps I just got lucky with...

Huge servings and carb overload at Aztec Family Restaurant

Let me start out by saying this: there is nothing fancy about Aztec Family Restaurant in – you guessed it – Aztec, New Mexico.

Not that that’s a bad thing, mind you. It’s just a fact. This little family restaurant, right off Aztec Boulevard, is the epitome of what I’d call “down home.” It’s quaint, kinda kitschy in...
