In this year's Bar & Nightlife Guide, SFR took the opportunity to highlight the stars of Santa Fe's bar scene—karaoke kings (like Matticus Fooks Hellfather, above) and queens, happy-hour highlights, best outdoor drinking spots, summery libations to spirit you away from the vicissitudes of early spring. We've also included the winning local brew from this year's first-ever Local Beer Championship, a Sweet 16-style bracket of various local brews that voters narrowed down to two finalists and, eventually, one winner. Finally, we offer the much-anticipated results of the 2013 Margarita Challenge on page 23. Consider it a bar-themed preview of this year's Best of Santa Fe issue (out in July), plus some inside knowledge of local karaoke and cocktail secrets. Cheers!
