Let's all take a big, deep breath. The rest of the summer is upon us!

Let's FORK!

Cities of Gold is partnering with local bar-mix company Bloody Maria to celebrate their 22nd Anniversary with a two-day Bloody Maria Fiesta!

The fiesta will feature a michelada and beer-tasting tent, a Bloody Maria bar sponsored by premium tequila brand Patrón, food trucks, and festival food including barbecue, burgers, and roasted corn. Each day will also feature various entertainers, from DJs to graffiti artists, as well as classic carnival games. There will also be a car show, featuring auto collectors from all over the region, on hand to answer questions about their unique and eye-catching vehicles.

Metalachi will be featured Saturday July 15. And on Sunday the 16 there will be a Bloody Maria brunch at 11 am. Shwayze will be the music headliner.

As an aside: If you've not tried Bloody Maria Bloody Mix, you really should—it's made with Hatch green chile, and gives a spicy twist to traditional cocktails, micheladas, and everyday recipes.

WHEN: 11 am-9 pm Saturday and Sunday July 15 and 16
WHERE: Cities of Gold Casino (10 Cities of Gold Road, Pojoaque, 455-4232)
COST: $20 for one day / $30 for the whole weekend. Get them HERE

I got a few more responses on the late night eats question!

Milad Persian Bistro (802 Canyon Road, 303-3581) is open until midnight Thursday-Saturday.

Il Vicino (321 W San Francisco St., 986-8700) is open until 11 pm Friday and Saturday.

I recently decided to subscribe to magazines again. There's something about that monthly delivery. That contained package of information. Having the thing in your hand is somehow just better.

For me this is particularly important with food magazines. I've never really gotten used to using my phone or computer for recipes. Swiping around a screen while you're covered in flour is ... weird.

I subscribe to Gather Journal. It's a slickly produced, award-winning magazine. The issues are themed and feature a diverse and interesting breadth of cuisines. Each meal is paired with a cocktail recipe. The issues feature products and essays as well. It's $35 a year—for that you get two issues and access to their feature-laden app.

HERE is their amazing recipe for cactus and purple potato frittata.

Hope you all had a great 4th! See you next week,

See you next week,
