5,000 fewer people aged 25-34 lived in Santa Fe County in 2010 than did
in 2000, I began to have this conversation with some regularity, and it
always drove me crazy.
It's been an exciting year for Santa Fe's food scene. Exciting isn't

This year's Best of Santa Fe
issue features some new successes and longtime favorites--and SFR
contributor Chicken Joe (yes, it's a pseudonym) has a companion piece on
the quirks that make Santa Fe the City Different--but ultimately, these
pages are all about why we can't help loving Santa Fe.
