The Staab House @ La Posada

I stayed at La Posada and visited the Staab House for the first time in May 2015. However, I didn’t know about their free Happy Hours till nearly a year later! Turns out, every Friday there is a FREE gathering where Art Curator, Sara Eyestone gives a talk about the history of La Posada and … More The Staab House @ La Posada

Five Star Burgers

I got to the opera house almost … More Santa Fe Opera House

On the website, the Santa Fe Indian Market is touted as “celebrating Native arts and culture in the largest and most prestigious intertribal fine art market in the world”. Sounded interesting, so I decided to go check it out. I had … More Sante Fe Indian Market


When I first walked into Gabriel’s, I was struck by the totally Mexican vibe of the place: something about the open air courtyard threw me back to the month I spent in San Miguel de Allende — in a good way. My ‘date’ and I were really made to feel at home and the waitstaff … More Gabriel’s

Canyon Road Art Galleries

I decided to explore the art galleries on Canyon Road last weekend. I just got home from Pennsylvania the week before and needed some inspiration, some culture. I was not disappointed. There seemed to be at least a hundred galleries along this stretch of road containing all kinds of art and sculpture. I will definitely … More Canyon Road Art Galleries
