If you’re famished from all your water sports this weekend, check out Durango Restaurant Week, April 12-21 (actually 10 days.)

 Sponsored by Visit Durango, the event is meant to showcase Durango’s wide array of eateries while giving restaurants a bump in the arm during what tends to be a slower time of the year (and hey, maybe you’ll be able to get a table without waiting an hour!) 

Restaurant Week will feature specialty item pairings priced at $15, $25 or $50. Here are but a few examples to whet your appetite (what does that mean anyway?)

• Primus - Bison filet tartare paired with a blackberry ginger vodka martini ($50).

• Durango Diner - Buttermilk pancake with homemade caramel sauce and side of bacon ($15).

• Seasons - Puff pastry with brie, caramel, berries, apples and ciabatta plus choice of one bottle of wine from the 2023 list ($25).

• Steamworks - St. Louis ribs with blue cheese mashers and seared kale and a pint of Backside Stout. ($25)

• Carver Brewing - Housemade gumbo paired with a pint of Carver’s beer. ($25)

• Mahogany Grill - Classic French fish meuniere with a glass of sparkling rosé. ($50)

• El Moro - Signature scallop dish paired with glass of pinot grigio. ($50)

Pushing up shrooms
05/23/2024

With Memorial Day upon us, perhaps there’s no better time to broach the uncomfortable but necessary subject of one of life’s certainties. No, not taxes: death. OK, now that we’ve sufficiently killed everyone’s buzz, here’s the good news. These days, there’s lots more options than the pine box or glossy, satin-lined Cadillac casket.
