November-December 2019 - Cover Story: Waitress at Popejoy Hall

Popejoy Hall brings the Tony Award-winning musical, Waitress, to the stage this December. This touring cast is lead by the talented Bailey McCall. McCall is no stranger to Broadway.

Pouring her heart into her pies, she crafts desserts that mirror her topsy-turvy life such as “The Key (Lime) to Happiness Pie” and “Betrayed By My Eggs Pie

November-December 2019 - Make 'Em Laugh: Evan Wrons

When did you realize comedy was your call? I didn’t realize it was my call until maybe a month ago. At the beginning of January, I did my first comedy set ever, and it was the most natural thing I’ve done in terms of entertainment and I was instantly addicted. Making people laugh has got to be the most rewarding things on this planet. Who are your comic inspirations? I grew up on Robin Williams and Jim Carrey as a kid, and that was super influential when I was young, but nowadays my inspirations vary from Anthony Jeselnik, Bo Burnham, Dave Chapelle, and George Carlin. They all bring/brought something unique to the table and I'm extremely motivated by that to find my own unique perspective, v

November-December 2019 - The Cut: Santa Fe Bites - ABQ

3407 Central Ave NE has been the home for many restaurants including Pete’s Frites and Rustic Star Burgers and Bistro. A new company has taken over to leave their mark in Albuquerque. Santa Fe Bites - ABQ is the new burger joint in Nob Hill. During a screening at our second home, The Guild Cinema, I decided that I and my assistant partake in their cuisine. It was refreshing to see the hostess not waste time to greet us at the door and get us seated the minute we walked in. The atmosphere of the establishment is uplifting. The mural of the Albuquerque skyline is a nice touch to the meal that was yet to come. Our waitress was quick to get our order placed and offer suggestions of what to try.

November-December 2019 - Follow-Up: Booze Scootin' Boogie: My Time at The Whiskey Classic

Personally, there are a few things I have always associated with New Mexico from a non-native perspective: dusty ranches and whiskey-fueled, cowboy-influenced shenanigans. Being native to Kentucky, booze, particularly bourbon and the other brown adult juices, have always been inherent for me. So, on Oct. 12, 2019, the second annual Whiskey Classic fulfilled that kitschy dream. Fortunately, even though the event was scheduled during the second weekend of our beloved (and sometimes abhorred) Balloon Fiesta, the weather was perfect for a day of drinking under the New Mexican sun. So, let's recount the day. It began in the middle of nowhere, Southeast of Santa Fe, near Lamy, N.M. My husband and
