11 Things Your Kids (and You) Can Learn In A Bar

Written by Kama Shockey Welcome back to Drinking With Kids! I want to thank the three of you returning, faithful readers for your support. I am pretty sure you guys were the ones I saw at Uptown last night with your kids in front packs, Long Island Iced Teas in your hands, making me look good because, for the first time in a loooooong time, I splurged for a sitter. Lately, I realized that bringing Izzy to the bar with me was a bonus for other reasons than the trillions I save not hiring a...

Horse Feathers Interview: From Divorce Band to Weekend Band

These are the things I successfully did not say to Justin Ringle, lead singer of Horse Feathers, when I interviewed him over the phone a few weeks back: OMG hi I love you. OMG hi you are my favorite band like totally ever forever. OMG hi I am very nervous to talk to you right now and I just can’t even. OMG hi I was very nervous to listen to your new “upbeat” record because the reason I love you so much and you’re my favorite band like totally ever forever is because I REALLY like sad,...

Top 10 Tips for Hiking in Northern Arizona

As winter rolls in, our chances to hike Flagstaff and Sedona’s trails are growing slimmer until next spring. So, I took it upon myself to hike last week and report to you the things I learned so you can enjoy these last great weeks before all of northern Arizona freezes over. You’re so very welcome. 1.

Flagstaff Orphan Thanksgiving: A Love Story

Written by: Rachel Stevens This is not your average love story. I love fall. I love everything about it: the way leaves dance to their deaths, the comfort of closing windows and dusting off jackets…I’m even that jerk for whom pumpkin spice can do no wrong. And maybe it’s my late-twenties ennui speaking, but there’s something about November that makes me particularly sentimental. Actually, two things: Thanksgiving and Flagstaff. A family affair To really grasp this love story, you need...

10 Reasons You Should Spend Your Happy Hour at Pita Jungle

Written by: Emily Hoover So I know what you’re thinking: Pita Jungle? Why should I spend my precious mid-afternoon drinking time at a chain when I could be visiting a multitude of places in downtown Flagstaff, each complete with daily drink specials and creative snacks? Because drinking is friggin’ expensive, that’s why. I don’t know about you, but I don’t always have the money for a $12 glass of Malbec that’s on sale for $8 or an aged cheese board (and I love cheese). That’s...

5 Lessons Learned at the Flagstaff Art Walk

First Friday Art Walk is pretty much THE THING in Flagstaff, an event of cultural significance with such magnitude that pretty much anyone who lives here, from out-of-state freshman to 80-year-old geriatrics like myself, knows what it is and has attended frequently. I’ve lived in Flagstaff for something like six years now. That means, to college students, I’m basically Old Man River over here, leaning on my cane in the front yard while I wheeze into a handkerchief and rebuke...

Blood Lust: How to Fall in Love at Flagstaff’s Annual Zombie Prom

Written by: Rachel Stevens Ah, Halloween. A time for ghouls, goblins, scantily clad girls and boys, and, for some lucky devils, love. I’m talking about Flagstaff’s Zombie Prom, the annual occasion to dust off ugly outfits, don some fake blood and dollar store makeup, and fall head over high heels. This year’s event will take place October 25th at The Green Room, and I’m already obnoxiously excited. For those of you asking if finding undead love is possible, fear not. Thanks to last...
