Wondering where you should live if you want to see UFOs?

Have you ever seen a UFO? If so, would you like to see a whole lot more? Like, do you want to live somewhere where you can’t get away from them?

If so, a) are you doing OK? And b) you’re in luck. For reasons beyond our comprehension, ISoldMyHouse.com recently took data from the National UFO Reporting Center, sorted the...

What better way to creep yourself out indoors than with creepy outdoors media

It’s looking like for the first time in quite a while, we don’t have anything to do on Halloween.

While the pandemic hasn’t completely killed off the season’s events, not much of anything is happening on Oct. 31 itself. And there are even fewer events going on if you’re not looking for a family-oriented event such as...

Eepa’s Pizza is baking quality pies in Bayfield

We love pizza. Slap some cheese, sauce, and toppings on some dough and bake it? We’re in. But it somehow still took us over a year to make it out to Eepa’s Pizzeria in Bayfield. Fortunately, we recently had a chance to rectify this oversight.

The pizza place opened in June 2019, in the building on the corner of Mill...

Jabberwokie from Pagosa Therapeutics wins Best Sativa at High Times Cannabis Cup Colorado

Fans of the works of Lewis Carroll will recognize the Jabberwock as a ferocious creature with “jaws that bite,” “claws that catch,” and “eyes of flame.” It turns out that the cannabis strain that bears its name, “Jabberwokie,” is also a beast that will take you through the looking glass.

The strain, grown by Pagosa...

How do we fix medical cannabis? Weed is legal in Colorado, but issues linger — especially for medical users

These days, when the legal status of weed makes the news, especially in Colorado, it tends to be in reference to recreational usage. This bias makes sense to a certain extent — the market for recreational marijuana is larger than the market for medical marijuana. And when medical cards and prescriptions were no longer...

Looking for something to watch in an altered state? The SPLIFF Film Festival is streaming

If you’re like us, you love film festivals — but you’ve probably noticed that, generally speaking, they’re full of heady, indie films that try to push you into deep introspection on the human condition. In other words, they’re stacked with movies almost specifically designed to harsh your mellow. Well, it turns out that...

Pagosa Springs’ Aqua Sol combines the best bits of a bar and a juice bar

What do you get if you combine a juice bar with a real bar and then add in some Mediterranean food? The answer, it turns out, is Aqua Sol, one of Pagosa Springs’ newest eateries.

Pagosa beverage connoisseurs might be familiar with The Juice Goddess, a juice bar that served smoothies, acai bowls, matcha green tea, vegan...

Get Outta Town: At the Cannabition Cannabis Museum you can interact with weed on a large scale

If you’ve been to Meow Wolf’s House of Eternal Return or one of the Museums of Ice Cream on either coast, then you know that these “immersive art attractions” are ridiculously fun. If, say, you just woke up from a coma you entered before 2016, these non-traditional exhibition spaces feature interactive installations that you...

What are the weirdest laws surrounding weed in legal states? Here’s a few standouts

As the first place to legalize recreational weed, you would think Colorado would have some of the more unusual laws surrounding its sale. After all, the first time you do something, you usually screw up a few things and then learn from your mistakes. But it turns out that we’re definitely not the weirdest.

Here’s a few...

At a few Colorado dispensaries, you can now buy weed from vending machines

If you’re the kind of shopper who prefers to get in, get what you’re looking for, and get out, vending machines are a godsend. Sure, a Redbox will never be able to deliver the same experience that wandering around a Blockbuster once brought (R.I.P. video rental stores). But they’re a heck of a lot more efficient.

Mountain Munchies provides tasty, local, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free snacks

Durango may have quite a few places to get snacks, but few of them cater primarily to people with restricted diets. At Mountain Munchies, however, vegans and those who are gluten- or dairy-free can find food to fit their lifestyles.

The eatery held its grand opening on Sept. 16 at 3701 Main Ave.

We dropped by...

Get Outta Town: Visit the mausoleum of Percival Lowell, who mapped Mars’ nonexistent canals

Northern Arizona has all sorts of cool natural wonders — the red rock buttes of Sedona, Monument Valley, Meteor Crater, the Petrified Desert, that Grand Canyon thing. But once you get bored of marveling at Earth’s surface, one of the most fascinating places to go is Flagstaff’s Lowell Observatory.

Located above the city...
