48 hours in Santa Fe, New Mexico

48 hours in Santa Fe, New Mexico Santa Fe is the nation’s oldest capital city, and probably its most unique, as well. This is a land of red and green chile, jaw-dropping sunsets, and adobe-everything. It’s a cultural hub — be it indigenous, literary, artistic, or culinary — and is full of activity options for an eye-opening / mouth-watering / just-plain-needed weekend. Here’s 48 hours of ideas to get you started. SATURDAY Morning Photo: TOURISM Santa Fe Santa Fe is an amalgamation of Native American, Spanish, and Anglo culture, so it only makes sense to dabble in each. You might as well start strong (and early — this morning is jam-packed!), with a Native American-inspired breakfast at Amaya, at…

New Mexico…like a celebrity

New Mexico…like a celebrity Celebrities lead pretty enviable lives. Constant parties, trips all over the world, red-carpet galas in the latest fashions, private spa retreats…who wouldn’t want to live like that, at least for a while? Riiiight. Few of us have celebrity-sized budgets, and photo shoots and galas tend to interrupt our 9-5. But there’s still a way we can taste that jet-setting, glamorous lifestyle: by getting to New Mexico. The state’s long been a favorite haunt of celebrities for its art, unique culture, and wild landscapes, while the film industry has turned the Land of Enchantment into the next Hollywood (aka Tamalewood). Here are just a few ways you can be a part of it all. Celebrity sighting…

The best margaritas? Santa Fe, NM

The best margaritas? Santa Fe, NM What other cocktail delicately balances four of the five human tastes, comes in flavors ranging from chocolate to raspberry to jalapeño, pairs with literally every single type of food on the planet, and has its own goddess? Only the margarita. Tequila, Cointreau, and lime juice, shaken for 15-20 seconds. Slide in a lime wheel and voilà. Perfection. Lucky for me, I come from the state with the best margaritas anywhere — hands down — and they’re all on Santa Fe’s Margarita Trail (making it almost dangerously easy to find them). In fact, the city’s known as the margarita capital of the world. Or should be. Will be. Here’s proof. Every drink has an…

8 art experiences in Santa Fe

8 art experiences in Santa Fe Santa Fe has a long history of being an art destination known for its turquoise jewelry, Western paintings, and bronze sculptures, but The City Different has a surprise for you. We’re talking art parties lasting into the early hours of the morning and secret, invite-only gallery openings. Seriously — these brazenly nontraditional arts experiences deserve to be as synonymous with Santa Fe as the movie biz is with Hollywood. The city sits quietly ranked as one of the largest arts markets in the US, with small, independent artists thriving here. When compared to the sheer size and pace of New York and LA, Santa Fe stands as an unparalleled beacon for collaboration and…

6 great New Mexico art experiences Nothing inspires artists more than jaw-dropping natural landscapes, and New Mexico has those in spades.

The

The I remember the first time I told a non-Santa Fean about Zozobra. The burning, the screaming, the white sheets, the chants. The torches and processions. The concept of cleansing. The flames. They looked deeply uncomfortable and asked me if I was in a cult. I could almost see the thought-bubble in the air asking “…or the KKK?” I laughed — and with a hint of a spark in my eyes, said, “No.” Yes, Zozobra is a strange and bizarre ritual. Maybe a little unsettling. But no, Zozobra is not an offshoot of the KKK, or a cult. It does not promote a hateful rhetoric. It’s merely a local tradition from my hometown where we gleefully come together once…
