Pro’s Ranch Market

Vaya con Dios, Taco Bell

By

With America’s Hispanic population poised to eclipse the white population any day now, it’s pretty cool to see a full-service Hispanic-focused supermarket chain. Pro’s Ranch Market started as a family store determined to meet the needs of an ever-evolving Latin community and has grown into a chain with locations in California, Arizona, Texas and now New Mexico.

This weekend, on a testosterone-heavy desert camping sojourn, our friend Spencer enlightened us about a high school epiphany he once had: that Salsa Verde Doritos and a 20-ounce Coca-Cola are the "perfect combination" of flavors.

Romance, Classical Guitar and High Tea

Romantic Classical Guitar and High Tea

By August March
Martin Ly is a local classical guitarist who attended Manzano High School before studying classical guitar performance at the University of New Mexico. The guitar program at UNM, as one might recall, is headed by the heady and totally awesome Michael Chapdelaine, who's been guiding young hands as they explore the frets and frequencies associated with the nylon-stringed axe for over 30 years.

Southern Comfort in the Comfort of the Southwest

Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey and Southern Food Pairing

By Robin Babb
Flights to Kentucky are expensive, and they have Polar Vortices over there. (Yes, that is the plural of vortex. Look it up.) Instead of making that trek on the hunt for some strong liquor and Southern hospitality, why not do some barstool tourism at O’Neill’s Pub in Nob Hill? This Wednesday, Feb. 20, come by to enjoy pairings of four Kentucky bourbon whiskeys with four Southern comfort dishes any time between 5 and 8pm. You’ll sip on Eagle Rare, E.H. Taylor, Buffalo Trace and Blanton's bourbon while the kitchen serves up fried green tomatoes, honey corn fritters, smoked brisket and a pecan pie tart. Not a bad way to spend a Wednesday night, huh? The pairing is $25 per person and, obviously, only for those 21 or older.

Here’s a few of our suggestions for places to take your sweetie out to dinner on a special day, even if that special day is just “Friday, and it’s been a long week.” You’ll probably want to make reservations for these ones, and wear your nice shoes.
