5 New Years Drinking Resolutions

I have two sets of New Years Resolutions this year. I have my first set, the boring New Years resolutions like fitness goals or career milestones that I’m going to ignore until I’ve forgotten about them completely as I settle back into my static life of stagnancy. Hurray! Then there’s the second set, my New Years Drinking resolutions, which are way more fun and actually provide something to strive for. Allow me to share. And yes, they’re a little late, but 2015 is a...

5 Flagstaff Spots That Make East Coasters Feel at Home

Written by: Emily Hoover I’ve lived in Flag for about a year and a half. My move from the sticky south—I’m from northeast Florida—to the high country of northern Arizona was one of desperation (I feared being a Townie where I went to college) as well as wonder (I hadn’t seen a real mountain in at least a decade). I’ve gotten used to green chilies in my eggs, switchback driving, cowboy boots and Turquoise everywhere, but there are some things I miss about Florida and the east coast...

Keep Flag Laughing: The NAUghty Bits Traveling Troupe

Written by: Karen McCoy It’s Friday night at Cheba Hut, and the sandwich place sports Christmas lights in a tropical island theme. Oldies blast over the speakers, and Van Morrison croons “Brown-Eyed Girl,” after the O’Jays urge everyone to join the “Love Train.” While happy hours are known for killer drink specials and occasionally live music, that’s not what brings me there this evening.

Said stress causes a certain individual to forego sleep for to do lists, thus reducing her motor skills to those of a drunk toddler. (And they were pretty bad to begin with, so that’s saying a lot.) 2. Because I said so. I mentioned in last month’s column that I lust after Christmas, and I wasn’t...

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. Bring beer. Seriously. You’ll want it. This might make me weird, but the ONLY time I crave beer is when I’m thirsty following physical activity. Make sure you keep it...
