Heart & History of Two Hotels
As the Hotel Weatherford opens up its latest addition with the Gopher Hole Pub, we look at the Weatherford and the Hotel Monte Vista as two cornerstone establishments of downtown and how they have created great spaces of food, spirits, charm and accommodations.

DEPARTMENTS

MIND & BODY
In recent years, the focus on “power foods” has been on the tips of many health experts’ tongues. But what are power foods, really? And how do we sort out the different presentations of what is and is not a power food? We talk to a local nutritionist about the myths and the facts.

THE DISH
The restaurant Brix, located on the edge of downtown in a tucked-away spot, remains one of Flagstaff’s premier fine-dining restaurants that has helped elevate the local cuisine.


BOTTLES & SPIRITS
Our resident wine expert looks at some great bottles coming out of Paso Robles of California, particularly their cabernets.

NATURAL SELECTIONS
August is often a chance for mushroom hunters to take to the mountain in search of edibles that can grow under the soggy skies of the Monsoon season.

ART SEEN
Photographer Dudley Bacon is known to take photography in new and interesting places, even inking prints onto aluminum and silk. He also has become a darling of the recycled art scene with his cardboard artistic creations.


HOMES AND SPACES
We visit a Flagstaff home that, for all its style and charm, has become one of the key stops on the Flagstaff Symphony Guild this month.
