Taos Pride is this weekend
I just spent a lovely weekend in Taos for a wedding. As the sun sets there, the evening air grows chilly—as opposed to slightly less boiling hot, like in Burque.
Last year, Taos celebrated its first ever Pride weekend, though its founder died a few weeks before the event. The fest was held in Robert Quintana’s honor. Friends described him as an energetic organizer who pulled people together and created community. He loved a good soiree, they said. There was a touch of seriousness to the first Taos Pride, but volunteers still predicted “a screaming big party.”
And they’re at it again. Taos Pride will paint the town in rainbows this weekend on Aug. 19, 20 and 21. Festivities include a cabaret, a drag show, music and a recovery brunch, among other fabulous things.

Five Star Burgers
Meat that’s bloody well done
Last week I explained the new direction this review column is taking, including the fact that I’ll no longer be eating or writing about mystery meat. There are many shades of mystery, and this simple-sounding mandate was tested numerous times during my first attempt to follow it at Five Star Burgers—with tasty results.
