Local Flavor’s October Issue


October heralds the change of seasons up here in the Land of Enchantment.

The most magical time of year to be here, in my opinion, and it just gets better as the colder weather sets in, fragrant cedar and pinon fires are lit, while hearty green chile stews simmer on our stoves.

I always look forward to receiving the monthly missives from Local Flavor’s Editor, Cullen Curtiss, giving taoStyle readers the inside scoop on their current issue. As always, this month’s Local Flavor covers everything you need to know (and then some), going on this month, in El Norte, and Cullen is here to tell us all about it!

In our October issue, we offer iconic, historic, joyful ways to experience Northern New Mexico.

A native Albuquerquean, writer Ashley M. Biggers tells not only the historic story of this city in the sky, but why it has such deep significance to all of us here in New Mexico.  

Writer Melyssa Holik takes you on a day trip to the mountain village of Jemez Springs, where, It radiates small-town New Mexico!” And there’s the added ahhh of natural hot springs.

Of the beloved La Choza in Santa Fe, writer Lynn Cline shares the heartwarming stories of the people behind the food—people you could easily call family.

‘Hood by ‘hood, Burque is being transformed, and El Vado is the latest in creative, delicious, sonorous urban renewal, and it’s on the storied Route 66.

It turns out that our Top Tix columnist Stephanie Hainsfurther has not just a yen for the performing arts but for suds as well. Read her story on Boxing Bear Brewery in Corrales, one of 67 craft brewers in our state.

Dixon, NM = art small factory. From longtime writer Stanley Crawford, a resident, learn about the artisans and their tools.

And, always a crowd-pleaser—our Still Hungry column highlights recipes from ABQ mixologists inspired by the 47th Balloon Fiesta!
