Let’s Grab A Beer – July 2015

Good News! There has never been a better time to be a beer drinker in New Mexico. That may seem like a bold statement, considering there were people living around what we call Clovis some 13,000 years ago, but let’s say it again … beer drinkers have never had it...

Santa Fe’s Museum Hill, a collection of museums and cultural institutions a few minutes from the Plaza, is a must-see for visitors and a weekend favorite for locals.

Still Hungry? July 2015

“When did ginger beer become indispensable?” I turned on the TV just in time to hear a fictional bartender utter these words. When, indeed? There was a time when mixers came out of a gun and the most exciting fresh fruit behind a bar was an orange. Mixologists are more...

Breakfast & Brunch Delights in Albuquerque

Albuquerque’s best breakfast and brunch spots: from waffles to hearty sandwiches, the top places to start your day: Some cities are “breakfast towns,” where refinement in the egg and hash brown arts has reached mastery. Albuquerque is not (quite) that town but we do pretty well in the late breakfast and...

Performance Santa Fe: The Audience Takes a Bow

Even the cover of this season’s Performance Santa Fe (PSF) program is immediately arresting. Tap dancing genius Savion Glover, dreads streaming behind him, is poised on the tip of one wingtip shoe like a toe dancer, as if about to take flight. And he’s just one of a major lineup...

Local Flavor is northern New Mexico’s complimentary food, wine and lifestyle magazine for Santa Fe, Albuquerque, Taos and Los Alamos. Local Flavor is read avidly by people living in northern New Mexico, as well as by thousands of visitors who travel to our area each year. Since 1994, Local Flavor has published stories about New Mexico chefs, restaurants, farmers, vintners, recipes and wine. In 2001, we added more flavors to the mix, and now include home decor, travel, design, arts and artisans, personal style, gardening, music and events. We offer visitors an insider’s look at local culture, area museums, galleries, restaurants and recreation—the best activities to experience and places to eat during a visit to New Mexico. We celebrate the deep historical roots of our community, the ethnic diversity of our people and the unique character of life in the high desert. We do this through in-depth stories on individuals who we feel embody these ideals. At its best, Local Flavor captures the essence of who we are.

Operatic Dances

Opera is the great artistic unifier, from vocalism and music to drama and architecture. But don’t forget that dance also is part of the equation, and often a large part. Many operas feature dance as part of the action, sometimes as a stop-the-show set piece and sometimes as an integral…
