The Chocolate Trail: Hitch a ride to taste-bud bliss

It’s that time of year when sugary chocolate Santas line the supermarket shelves like rosy little soldiers, and every corner café proffers a cup of hot cocoa.

The Chocolate Trail: Hitch a ride to taste-bud bliss

It’s that time of year when sugary chocolate Santas line the supermarket shelves like rosy little soldiers, and every corner café proffers a cup of hot cocoa. I decided to give my taste buds a break from the standard holiday sweets this season — on Santa Fe’s artisanal “Chocolate Trail.”

WINTERLIFE — November 2013

Winterlife

The essence of winter is a glowing fire, as explored by esteemed writer Stanley Crawford; but it is also spending a day at one of northern New Mexico’s unique ski areas, or shuffling silently through the forests on snowshoes. It is the Santa Fe’s best hot chocolate, the man who plows our winter roads, and riding out a storm in a world-class Santa Fe museum or our amazing assemblage of art galleries. Hungry for intelligent conversation? Check out the Lannan Foundation’s literary events. Hungry for a green chile cheeseburger or a Christmas symphony? Long to get away from the crowds? Get away to a yurt for a winter adventure, or take an easy stroll on the terrific local hiking trails. All these details and more are found in this guide to the quality of life we enjoy in the City Different.

FELIZ NAVIDAD — November 2012

Feliz Navidad

Free, family-friendly events light up the holidays in The City Different. See why Christmas at the Palace, the lighting of the menorah on the Plaza, Las Posadas (a re-enactment of the holy family’s search for shelter) and the farolito walk on Canyon Road have become beloved traditions for locals and visitors alike. Celebrate the feast day of the Virgin of Guadalupe, and learn why she is the “first lady of Santa Fe.” Witness the illumination of the Jémez State Monument and explore Chocolate, Maté y Mas, the newest exhibit at the Museum of International Folk Art. Light the way home with Hanukkah doughnuts or roast pork and posole—a traditional norteño Christmas Eve meal. Need something stronger? A visit three small-batch New Mexico distilleries will lift your spirits.
