Don’t Let Hip or Knee pain Keep You Down What do these locals and dozens of others have in common? They were all living with the debilitating effects of a degenerative hip or knee. Pain was causing them to miss out on doing the things they loved, and they decided to do something about it. They all had joint implant surgery with the advanced MAKOplasty® system, meaning recovery time was decreased. Now they’re up, not down. Up for skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and everything else they’d been missing.

Ask how MAKOplasty® can relieve your hip and knee pain. Call 970.925.4141

MAKOplasty ® is powered by the surgeon-controlled RIO® robotic arm system enabling advanced treatment options for more accurate hip and knee implant placement.

Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any hip or knee surgical procedures, including MAKOplasty.® Your doctor can explain these risks and help determine if MAKOplasty ® is right for you.

THE WEEKLY CONVERSATION

with STEWART OKSENHORN

HALLOWEEN TOURISTS FLOCK from spots all over the globe to celebrate Christmas in Aspen. The Fourth of July attracts hordes of motorcyclists over Independence Pass. Presidents Weekend, smack in midwinter, is irresistible for skiers. But Halloween remains the holiday we keep all to ourselves — few guests to cater to, no double-shifts starting early the next morning — and it is a sign of the Aspen spirit that we take full advantage. Among this year’s Halloween Day activities are the Belly Up costume party, with Talking Heads tribute group This Must Be the Band; the Sky Hotel’s Wonderland Asylum Halloween Extravaganza, with an “Alice in Wonderland” theme; Dean Weiler’s Walk With the Dead tour of Ute Cemetery; and trick or treating through the North 40 neighborhood. In the theaters, the remake of Stephen King’s “Carrie” is showing in El Jebel. Or for something truly scary, try “Escape Plan,” starring Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Halloween preparations are on for Aspen’s big day, Thursday, Oct. 31.

CURRENTEVENTS POPULAR MUSIC

HOOPS THE OPENING OF THE NBA doesn’t have the same magic of baseball’s opening day, with its promise of spring, then summer; or of the NFL’s first weekend, with its sense of ritual TV-watching and buffalo wing-eating for many Sundays (and Mondays, Thursdays and the occasional Saturday) to come. Unless you happen to be a basketball junkie and can think of nothing better than the sevenmonth grind that is the NBA season ahead. For a Nuggets fan, this opening week — they opened Wednesday in Sacramento, and play their first home game Friday, Nov. 1 against the Portland Trailblazers — there is plenty to anticipate: a new, first-time coach in Brian Shaw, with a new, slowed-down scheme; new players in J.J. Hickson, Randy Foye and Nate Robinson; the beginning of the postGeorge Karl era. For a hoops fanatic, it almost feels like spring in the air.

Aspen appearance with the High MANY TIMES I’VE SAID that the Plains Drifters, returns with his greatest rock ‘n’ roll show I’ve seen in Drifters bandmate Jono Manson for a show as Brother’s Keeper, Aspen was by a little-known band called Wednesday. Nov. 6 at Belly Up. High Plains Drifters. It was the mid-’90s, the height of the jam-band years, and John Popper and Bobby Sheehan of Blues Traveler (also at its peak) teamed with singer-songwriter Jono Manson to take a few swift runs through the clubs of the Rocky Mountains. A 1997 show at the Double Diamond was awesome in its energy. Sheehan has died, Popper has slimmed considerably, the jamband wave isn’t quite what it was, the Double D days are long done, but an encore still gets me excited. Brother’s Keeper, which re-teams Popper and Manson — and includes the local rhythm section of bassist Michael Jude and drummer John Michel — plays Belly Up on Wednesday, Nov. 6. The ticket is just $10 — a steal, given what I expect.

The Denver Nuggets open their home schedule with a game on Friday, Nov. 1 against the Portland Trailblazers.

with JOHN COLSON

Halloween, a time for Republican reawakening? IS HALLOWEEN A Republican holiday, a chance to ward off evil ideas and truly work toward a better future for all, as the party once did? You decide. According to the website, history.com, Halloween is believed to have originated with the ancient Celtic festival known as “Samhain, when people would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off roaming ghosts.” It was all part of the fun, apparently, since Samhain (reportedly pronounced “sow-en”) was a three-day festival believed to open the doors between the worlds of the living and the dead, to permit the dead to walk among the living and, uh, live it up a little, I guess. It was inevitable that some bright entrepreneurs of those prehistoric times would seize the holiday as a chance to make a little money by claiming the ability to contact the spirits or foretell the future. It wasn’t until the eighth century that Pope Gregory III named Nov. 1 as the day to honor all saints and martyrs of the Christian faith, or All Saints Day, preceded by All Hallows Eve, the start of this period of remembrance. But, enough history, what’s happening now? How can I possibly link the Republican Party’s fate to this ancient pagan ritual turned Christian day of remembrance turned commercial fear fest? Stay with me for a moment. You see, the Republicans as a whole may not realize it, but Halloween could become their day, the day they can shake off the ghosts of Romney, Palin and a plague of Teabaggers, to scramble their way back to the days when the party ended slavery in this country, fought corruption, supported workers’ rights and more. Or not, as the case may be. In South Carolina, normally a safe Republican stronghold, for example, a Democrat gubernatorial candidate named Vincent Sheheen reportedly has pulled even in the polls with Republican incumbent Gov. Nikki Haley, who narrowly beat Vincent in the governor’s race four years ago. Haley, a native of the state, is a former state legislator and a Tea Party darling who apparently views government service as an opportunity to let the government serve her instead of the other way around.

She recently declared that, in the 2014 gubernatorial race, she would not be obeying state laws prohibiting the use of taxpayer money to pay some of her campaign expenses, such as holding fundraising events and rallies “and any other event paid for and planned by the governor’s campaign.” She is doing this thanks to an agreement with the South Carolina State Ethics Commission, the members of which she appoints and controls. Haley is wealthy and well-connected, a businesswoman and conservative social activist who favors sales taxes over property taxes to fund the government, and a staunchly antiabortion champion who apparently owes her 2010 gubernatorial election to an endorsement from former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Although she is a foe of progressive immigration reform, she has used racial taunts against her by a former opponent to portray herself as a downtrodden immigrant, so she’s a hypocrite, as well. Sheheen, also a native of the state and legislator, is a moderate progressive who supports gay marriage and the legalization of marijuana, land conservation to fend off overdevelopment, and the Affordable Care Act. He also believes legislators should be forced to wait eight years after leaving office before becoming a lobbyist. I view Haley, dressed in her Tea Party costume, as just another right-wing apologist for a plan to return the U.S. to a state of updated feudalism, with wealthy corporate masters lording it over their impoverished employees and using the government as their private piggy bank. As such, she stands in open opposition to any in her party who would banish the ghosts of selfcentered, hate-based policies and ideas, who might be convinced to cast off their glittering costumes as corporate lackeys and put back on the less gaudy cloth coats of the original Republican Party of Abe Lincoln. And I think Hallloween is the perfect time for the Grand Old Party to shake off those nasty ghosts and ugly old costumes, get back to their roots, and try doing their real job for a change.

LEGENDS & LEGACIES

FROM the VAULT

by TIM WILLOUGHBY

Horse-power constructed the roads surrounding Aspen in the 1880s.

THE ROADS WELL-TRAVELED AN ISOLATED COLONY OF MINERS comprised Aspen in the 1880s. Roads that would connect mines and ranches to town and Aspen to the outside world became the highest community priority. Several projects were initiated in 1881. Pitkin County had just been created, but a group of mine owners couldn’t wait for the commissioners to find funds and build a road from town to the mines in Tourtolotte Park. The group, including names you know from street signs — Hyman, Deane, and Hopkins, plus the most optimistic community leader, Captain Thatcher— put up money to survey a road. They then cornered mine owners along the route to subscribe for its construction. The consortium planned to turn the road over to the county once built; until the county became solvent, they operated it as a toll road. At the time, Pitkin County commissioners focused on connecting Aspen to railroad lines on the eastern slope. They also built the road that is the northern extension of Mill Street across the Roaring Fork. The through-way extended to the mesa above, beyond to a toll road up Hunter Creek, and eventually terminated at the fledgling town of Independence.

In 1882 the county completed a road to connect ranches to town. You still drive this road if you travel along the north side of the valley to Woody Creek. When ranchers volunteered labor to construct much of the road, they saved the county most of the expense; however, the

Many of the early roads charged a toll. One-way rates on the Gothic road were equivalent to a few hours of a miner’s wages: $1.50 for a twohorse vehicle, fifty cents for a horse and rider. Road construction began with two phases: initially, the county surveyor/

In 1886 the county completed two additional, ambitious projects. One road wound its way up the Conundrum Valley, providing a pathway for timber to be hauled to the mines and for ore to be transported to town. The other, their most challenging project, connected Aspen to Gothic via the Maroon Valley, on the other side of the Elk Mountains.

engineer laid out the direction; then laborers felled trees and, using plows pulled by draft animals, carved out the roadway. For any section too rocky for plowing or hand shoveling, they resorted to blasting powder. Road completion sometimes called for bridge construction, although great effort was made to ford streams rather than proceed with that complicated undertaking. A labor shortage forestalled road-

building. Men were paid $2.50 per day for roadwork, compared to $3.50 for mining. Road jobs were considered positions for “newly arrived” men who easily acquiring the work; as soon as they could, they secured positions in the mines, leaving road contractors scrambling for replacements. The county created “road overseer” positions for its many roads. The overseer was responsible for the collection of tolls and for maintaining the roads in a specific area. Dirt roads were subject to rapid wear and tear, and flash flooding; they dissolved into a morass of mud in the spring that turned to ruts. In addition to such seasonal challenges, roads had to be graded frequently. Major users of a road often helped to maintain their section, not only to reduce tolls, but more fundamentally because they couldn’t always wait for the county to approve expenditures. Popular hiking trails that were once wagon roads and many miles of local roads that you drive each day were constructed in the 1880s. The few changes to their alignment in modern times suggest they were all wellplaced and designed. Tim Willoughby’s family story parallels Aspen’s. He began sharing folklore while teaching for Aspen Country Day School and Colorado Mountain College. Now a tourist in his native town, he views it with historical perspective.

THE DILEMMA:

THE FIX:

WHY IT WORKS:

BONUS:

With this year’s extended autumn, you’re still out exploring your favorite hikes. But given the inevitably variable conditions — loose soil, mud, ice — your shoes could use an upgrade. After all, you don’t want to risk taking a spill and tweaking something so close to ski season.

The Luna women’s hiking shoe from Oboz (similar men’s version is the Traverse).

Four-millimeter lugs and ground-hugging carbon rubber on the outsole give these lightweight hikers more brawn than their svelte appearance suggests. I’ve been wearing them all summer and fall, and I’ve never felt so surefooted — they almost make descending the sketchy sections of the ArbaneyKittle trail easy. Note that the uppers are made of tightly woven, breathable mesh, so they won’t keep your feet dry once snow starts to accumulate.

Oboz has a fanatical devotion to fit, so all of their shoes include a supportive yet smoothly flexing insole that’s comparable to aftermarket footbeds.

WORDS to DRINK BY

THE LAYOVER

‘YOU’VE GOT TO ADMIT IT’S GETTING BETTER, GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME.’ IN RECENT YEARS, airports have become more than simply places to catch connecting flights. Some, like Amsterdam and Atlanta, resemble high-end shopping malls as much as they do air terminals. A bright side of the trend has been a transformation of the food and drink offerings available between flights. On a most recent sojourn through Denver International Airport, and its everevolving Terminal B, I had the opportunity to experience the phenomenon firsthand. My flight, packed to KELLY J. HAYES the gills with locals heading to exotic locales, left Aspen on time. It wasn’t until I arrived in Denver that I got the dreaded buzz on my cell. My connecting flight had been “affected by a delay.” Paradise would have to wait. Experienced flight victim that I am, I instantly headed for the perfect “wait it out and have a beer” location, The New Belgium Hub. While they do make passable food, sandwiches, salads, rice bowls and such, their raison d’être is to pour the best brews from Ft. Collins New Belgium Brewery. It’s a place where you can get handcrafted Colorado suds in the proper glassware. A bonus is the televisions tuned to the wide world of sports allowing imbibers the chance to experience the thrill of victory accompanied by a Mothership Wit. Like the Ranger Station in Snowmass or the Brewery itself, drinking at the New Belgium Hub puts you into a Fat Tire frame of mind. My current personal favorite pour is the newly released “Accumulation” White IPA, a lighter, unfiltered yellow, India Pale Ale. It fits the change of seasons perfectly. Finishing the brew, and the first half of the college football games, I headed off to find my gate and catch my flight. Alas, when I got to gate 54 there was a crowd, a gate agent and no plane. “We’re waiting on equipment was the word.” The upside was that I could go across the way and sample a flight of Oregon Pinots or have a glass of California Cabernet at the recently opened CRU wine bar. CRU is an offshoot of an Austin, Texas-based wine bar concept that also has

BEST BITES IN TERMINAL B THE NEW BELGIUM HUB: A basket of sweet potato fries in a vinegar gastrique, with a side of chipotle aioli and a Fat Tire takes the edge off any flight delay. CRU: While the cheese plates are exceptional (Maytag Blue, Humboldt Fog and Grafton Cheddar make up the American Classic), the prosciutto and arugula pizza will get you in the mood for a flight to FCO (Fiumico-Leonardo da Vinci International in Rome). ELWAY’S: A hand-cut 22-ounce bone-in rib eye, cooked rare with a glass of Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon, is the way to score here. But if you want something light, “John’s Salad” with grilled shrimp is a first-round pick. “This one’s from John!” 5280: Nuts and Bolts. That would be spicy roasted spanish almonds with a shot of MacCallan 25. But if you have a few minutes more, try a smoked salmon salad (new to the menu) with a glass of Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay.

locations in Denver’s Larimer Square and Park Meadows. The impressive list allows customers to purchase wine in flights, thoughtfully created to provide an educational experience, or by the glass or bottle. Substantial pours in Riedel glassware make this the perfect place to chill. A comfortable bar and series of high tables also provide a great view of the 50s gates where the Aspen flights regularly come and go (sometimes on time) and you will frequently see friends scrambling to make connections. Still, as I sat and watched my gate, the slumped shoulders of my fellow travelers across the way told the story. Our flight was no longer “affected by a delay,” it was now “affected by a

cancellation.” Finishing my glass of Bergstrom Pinot Noir and resolving to write further about CRU in the future, I set out to evaluate options. Hmm. Perhaps a meal would help take the sting out of being waylaid. Having not been to the new Elway’s in the center of the terminal and aware that at least they don’t cancel college football games (other than Grambling), I decided to check it out. Elway’s is, by far, at the top of the food chain for terminal B dining. It provides an out of airport experience in the airport. Dark woods, white stone walls, a football-shaped bar with an illuminated marble top hit just the right notes. Photos of #7 and televisions recessed into the rock walls give the place a sports vibe in way that doesn’t overpower. Colorado beers on tap work well with appetizers like Rhode Island Calamari and Steak Tacos, affordable bites if you are looking for a taste rather than a meal. And, of course, there is a large selection of California

Cabs for the meaty, dry-aged steaks that beckon. Satiated but in need of a nightcap, I repaired upstairs to the place that began the upscale revolution in Terminal B, the 5280 Cocktail Lounge. A refuge for weary and delayed travelers, 5280 has a great cocktail menu and wines by the glass. As I perused my United App, the very best feature of the airline in decline, I sipped a decadent Mile High Manhattan, made lovingly with Stranahan’s Colorado Whisky. Alas, there were no options left. There was no way to get there from here. With a final sip (and a substantial buzz), I made my way back to my original gate. Still searching for a flight to paradise. Kelly J.

FROM ASPEN, WITH LOVE

FOOD MATTERS

JUST ADD WATER

A NERD HACKS THE KITCHEN, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO “WHAT ARE YOU working on?” is my favorite question to ask a chef. Outside of dinner service and catering gigs, kitchen creatives always seem to be testing out new techniques, foraging in the woods for wild ingredients, or conducting so-crazyit-just-might-work experiments. Chefs are adventurers, and I like a good story. So I was surprised when my friend, Bravo AMANDA Fine Catering executive RAE chef Adam Christopher Norwig, mentioned he’s reading Tim Ferriss’ latest life-hacking manual, “The 4-Hour Chef: The Simple Path to Cooking Like a Pro, Learning Anything, and Living the Good Life.” I’m a fan of the 36-yearold New York Times bestselling author’s other books; “The 4-Hour Workweek” changed my attitude toward time management during a particularly grueling period of my career, and I open “The Four-Hour Body” when I want to sleep better, improve my swim stroke, or quell cravings. (It’s hard to resist the subtitle: “An uncommon guide to rapid fat-loss, incredible sex, and becoming superhuman.”) But I passed over “The 4-Hour Chef” when it was published last November because, well, I’ve been cooking since I was 6. Now Norwig, who has decades of experience in classical French and traditional Japanese cuisines, is reading it? Huh. It must not be as elementary as I thought. “I’m using it as a tool to direct others,” Norwig says. “It’s not just teaching mechanics, it’s dynamics.” I note the book’s encyclopedic 670-pages. “It’s kind of like ‘Atlas Shrugged’ by Ayn Rand,” he explains. “She tells compelling stories, but in between are these long rants about personal responsibility, politics, et cetera. ‘The 4-Hour Chef’ is not a cover-to-cover read. You have to skip around chapters, choose your own adventure.” Intrigued, I picked up a copy, and, back at home, cracked the sucker open. Four hours later, I had slipped between the sofa cushions and fallen down a rabbit hole. As I

should have expected, “The 4-Hour Chef” is not a cookbook. Rather, it’s a comprehensive guide to acquiring any skill, the main example being cooking, which a reported 28 percent of Americans don’t know how to do. As Ferriss writes in his introduction, “We’ll use training in the kitchen as training for everything outside of the kitchen.” Very “Karate Kid.” The book is organized into five sections. “DOM: The Domestic” is composed of 14 core lessons, each of which teaches a broadly applicable skill and requires no more than 20 minutes of prep (for a grand total of approximately four hours, get it?), five ingredients or fewer, and minimal equipment. It’s the only section of the book that’s required reading if one’s goal is to learn how to cook. Sprinkled throughout are bite-size basics: how to choose produce, how to hold a knife properly (hint: you’re doing it wrong), three fast ways to peel garlic, a cheat-sheet detailing oils and cooking mediums, and cautions: “Don’t Be a Pan Shaker!” Bonus lessons (plus, how to chiffonade basil, “How to Unf*ck Overcooked Meat”) culminate in a play-by-play to hosting dinner parties of varying size and ambition. Now, you might be reading this and thinking to yourself, “That’s nice, but uh, how to chiffonade basil? Duh.” Or, “I serve feasts to friends all the time.” Advanced home cooks will find something — many things, I predict — in other sections of the book. In “WILD,” Ferriss steps out of the kitchen and into nature, examining hunting and wild game butchery, foraging, fire-building, and various styles of cooking — with acid (ceviche), in campfire embers, on a spit — even how to MacGyver a makeshift stove from a soda can or catch a pigeon at the city park. Admittedly, some of these skills may be of little practical application for most — see: “Killing a Chicken: The Mexican Towel Snap” — but Ferriss’ firsthand accounts injected with his earnest humor make for a fascinating read. There’s a reason why Newsweek refers to Ferriss as “the world’s best human guinea pig”: his research is exhaustive — dozens of scientists and no fewer than 22 chefs were consulted

O c tob e r 3 1 - No v e m b e r 6, 20 13

along the way — and he tests everything to death, usually on himself. “SCI: The Scientist” explores gels, spherification and dehydration, among other chemical reactions, offering recipes for each (“Crunchy Bloody Mary,” “Mojito Bubbles,” “The Best Jerky in the World,” respectively). Here Ferriss segues into the science of physiology; it’s worth noting that recipes in “The 4-Hour Chef,” follow the Slow Carb Diet, a limitation that makes the book all the more convincing. (There’s also the geeked-out “META: Meta-learning,” section, “where you’ll learn to mimic the world’s fastest learners,” including how to taste.) For working chefs, and anyone looking to peek inside the brains of top talent, “PRO: The Professional” showcases the vastly different styles of two industry leaders: chef Marco Canora of Hearth in New York City and chef Grant Achatz of Chicago’s Alinea, the No. 1 ranked restaurant in the world in 2011. “Classics” relates the best methods for building flavor, frying and cooking delicate foods at high heat; “Avant-Garde” walks us through molding paraffin-wax bowls as tableware and shaping bacon roses as garnish. Understandably, all this might be a little much for someone who just wants to make an omelet. In fact, Ferriss’ initial hypothesis is that most cookbooks and recipes are unnecessarily complex, and therefore frustrate and lose beginners before they even get started. The beauty of “The 4-Hour Chef” is that, aside

‘THE AWARENESS WE BUILD IN THE KITCHEN AND IN RELATED ADVENTURES WILL AFFECT EVERYTHING. LIFE ITSELF BECOMES HIGH-DEFINITION.’ – TIMOTHY FERRISS, ‘THE 4-HOUR CHEF’ from the core lessons on skills, process and technique, the rest is optional. The organized braindump of a hyper-curious, eccentric experimenter out to conquer the world of cooking so that you can do it, too — with the least amount of time and effort — boils down to two truths: cooking requires confidence, and knowledge is power. And you’re never too old to learn how to clambake in a garbage can. After reading “The 4-Hour Chef,” Amanda Rae will never look at meatloaf the same again. Share your kitchen wisdom:

SIMPLE TRICKS In the “The 4-Hour Chef,” author and obsessive notetaker Timothy Ferriss, with the help of industry veteran Jeffrey Zurofsky, attempts to cram six months of culinary school into 48 hours…and succeeds. Here are a few favorite tips: • Do as wrestlers and surgeons do: keep your elbows close to your sides at all times. If you move your elbows, you’ll probably move your feet, and that’s when mistakes happen. • Hold all pan handles from underneath — never from the top — for the most control. • When ladling soup and sauces, remember: “double dip, no drip.” Tapping the bottom of the ladle on the liquid’s surface removes any excess, for smooth serving. • Drizzle salad dressing around the outside of the bowl and hand-mix to prevent most of the dressing from getting stuck on a few top leaves. • 350 degrees is the magic temperature: most foods will cook properly in the oven or on the stovetop at this setting, 90 percent of the time. For meats, use a probe thermometer to test for doneness.

GIVING GLOBALLY EXPLORE, AND GIVE BACK, WITH DONOR TRAVEL Why do we travel? It’s a question with so many answers that it almost seems unanswerable. To see, to explore, to immerse, to submerge, to recreate. The need to step beyond one’s own borders is different for every traveler. For some, the need to travel is to connect, with different people that perhaps they as of yet have no connection; for others, it is a desire to meet, see and experience the world with people with whom the connection has already been made. And now, there is a new kind of travel happening beyond volunteerism and educational travel — philanthropic or donor travel. Donor travel is a way to let those who support a cause see firsthand how their efforts benefit the communities that they support. Elevate Destinations specializes in donor travel. They partner with organizations to customize travel itineraries for nonprofit clients addressing global initiatives. Elevate was started eight years ago by Dominique Callimanopulos, whose desire was to be able to contribute to the world by allowing people to see it in a sustainable, responsible and impactful way, according to Elevate’s director of program development, Andrea Atkinson. The donor travel program has evolved out of the successful eco-tourism and volunteer travel programs that Elevate also offers. For donor travel, Elevate provides its services to nonprofits at no cost. They help plan the donor’s journeys and often lead them, with hopes the success of the trip will turn into dollars for the nonprofit host. “Donors to nonprofits like to visit sites in different places around the world that they work in,” Atkinson explains. “It becomes an extra opportunity to create impact for donors, and creates lasting

P H OTO S C O U RT E S Y O F E L E VAT E D E S T I N AT I O N S

relationships within the groups, and connections to the locations and the people they are serving.” Atkinson tells of an all-women’s trip to Colombia with Global Fund for Women. Elevate took 12 of the fund’s donors and explored projects from Cartagena up into the Guajira region into small cities and towns. “It was eye-opening for a lot of the people on the trip,” Atkinson says. “They were able to meet people who they provide funding for, and see that their money was being invested in real, tangible work, and that the work being done was affecting someone. Having those connections makes it feel real.” In turn, these donor trips often bring more funding to the project thanks to that firsthand connection to those communities. And perhaps

more important, five percent of the net costs of all trips also go to nonprofit partners in the destinations visited. “Donors are always looking for a return on their investment in the form of impact — there’s nothing better than that,” she says. “To go there and to see what is really there, what is really happening, is invaluable.” “At Elevate the big thing for us is awareness and generating understanding and conversations between cultures,” says Atkinson. “What is this ‘travel’ thing that we

do? At the end of the day it is about connecting with the world and the people in it, understanding who the ‘other’ is and discovering this world is that we’re all a part of. We want to get people to have conversations and collaborations and come together and see for themselves some of the amazing things that come out of that.” – Amiee White Beazley

WISH YOU WERE HERE ... I HAD THE PLEASURE of spending my final three credits of college in Sydney, Australia. If you ever get the chance to make the 20-hour flight (15 from Los Angeles), take it. Enjoy a pint at Fortune of War, the oldest pub in town, where London’s ex-convicts and outcasts quenched their thirsts in the late 1800s. Check out wine country in the Blue Mountains (about an hour’s drive from Sydney), where you can hike to the famed Three Sisters rock formation. Finally, take the bus to Sydney Harbour and view the Sydney Opera House, an architectural triumph and staple of Australian identity. A great time to visit is January, during the Sydney Arts Festival. — Karl Herchenroeder I GREW UP a few miles from New York City, which I understood then to mean Manhattan. There were sporting events in the outer boroughs, but Queens and the Bronx were not a place to linger. You saw the game, then made a beeline for the real city — Midtown, Greenwich Village, Chinatown. Manhattan neighborhoods all. I’m spending Thanksgiving week Back East, which will inevitably mean a few precious moments in New York — small, funky, great restaurants near my sister’s Soho loft, hopefully a visit to Broadway to see “The Book of Mormon.” But these days, if I had time and my druthers, I’d spend my NYC time on the other side of the Brooklyn Bridge.

In the 21 years since I moved from the area, Brooklyn has emerged. I’d pass on Times Square for a show at the Brooklyn Academy, check out a concert at Brooklyn Bowl and a Nets game at the Barclays Center, stroll the hip neighborhoods of Greenpoint and Park Slope. I’d tear myself away from the Carnegie Deli in favor of pizza places like Di Fara and Franny’s. Oddly, Brooklyn has become what I think of when I think of New York. — Stewart Oksenhorn THOUGH I AM no longer a resident of uptown New Orleans, every year or so I go back and play the role of “tourist on a budget.” There’s a lot to do there and it doesn’t always cost a lot of money. Plus, November is an excellent time, weatherwise, to visit the normally hot and balmy Crescent City. It’s typically sunny, dry and mild. For starters, there is an excellent lunch at The Bulldog, a popular beer tavern in the 3200 block of Magazine Street. Robert Wayne Remington, the head chef, provides scrumptious meals for a great price. Some of it is standard bar fare — Rem’s cheeseburgers will blow your mind. But the waffle cheese fries and crawfish banditos present a unique offering. Add to that a vast array of draught beers (more than 50) and outdoor seating, and one can see how the Bulldog is a great way to kick off the day. In the same area of Magazine

TIMES TRAVEL So where do folks who toil at The Aspen Times plan to spend these final weeks of offseason — or, perhaps more accurately, where do we dream of traveling? A completely unscientific poll turned up these destinations, both close to home and far, far away. You guess which ones fall into the “dream” category. • Nicaragua for surfing • Livingston, Mont. • San Francisco • Fort Lauderdale • Turkey • Canyonlands • Glenwood Hot Springs Pool • Mexico • Fruita • Grand Junction • Moab • Sanabelle and Captiva Islands • Maui • Denver • Paris

Street, there is a vast array of antique and consignment shops representing prime window-shopping. Several other restaurants and bars line a four-block area. The Rendezvous Tavern, Joey K’s restaurant and The Balcony Bar are

popular and affordable stops. At night, live music is king. Le Bon Temps Roule, farther up Magazine Street in the 4800 block, has regular offerings of brass and roots-rock bands, usually for a nominal cover charge ($5). The Maple Leaf club, a short cab ride away on Oak Street (at the western end of St. Charles Avenue), provides live music more frequently and usually of a higher caliber, with emphasis on down-home funk. If it’s crowded, prepare to sweat quite a bit at both clubs while shaking it up on the dance floor, no matter what time of year. A cover charge at The Maple Leaf typically runs about $10 to $20, depending on the band. Lodging in the uptown area can be cheap or moderately priced. My suggestion is to check the website Air B&B for the best deals. Last year I was able to get five nights in a two-bed condo on the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line for about $400. — Andre Salvail DREAM TRIP: A return visit to the Timbers Castello di Casole in Tuscany during November truffle season. I’ve had the great pleasure of visiting there once before, but not since the hotel was completed. Stunning views. Incredible food. Near Florence and surrounded by a nature preserve. Not to mention, it is a Carbondale-based Timbers Resort property. — Amiee White Beazley

YOUTH MOVEMENT ASPEN SISTER CITIES CREATES CULTURAL CONNECTIONS FOR MIDDLE-SCHOOLERS

BACK IN THE DAY, OFFSEASONS were a time for road trips — Moab, Mammoth, Baja. Just last fall, we were lucky enough to spend nearly two weeks in Maui, Hawaii...a true slice of paradise. But this offseason was different; I traveled vicariously, as my daughter — and a handful of other Aspen eighth-graders — hopped on a plane for two weeks abroad. Indeed, their tales of travel are as spectacular as any trip I’ve ever taken. Looking at Hannah’s pictures, I can taste the gelato, hear the accents, smell the Tuscan air, see The Duomo and Michelangelo’s David. The experience was part of the Aspen Sister Cities Exchange Program. This year, Aspen students will travel to four far-flung mountain locales: Abetone, Italy; Shimukappu, Japan; Chamonix, France; and Bariloche, Argentina. Students from those towns will in turn visit Aspen; a group from Bariloche has already come and gone. My daughter was one of eight students from Aspen Middle School, Aspen Community School and Aspen Country Day School on the inaugural trip to Abetone, Italy. Once there (after a plane trip unlike any most of the kids had every taken), they attended school; toured places like Florence and Pisa; and lived with an Italian family. In January, the Aspen students and their families will play host to the Italian students. The Aspen Sister Cities website says the program’s mission is to “share ideas and cultures;” it continues on to stay that the student exchange component has made “life changing differences” for the kids and formed “lifelong friendships.”

RIGHT: Aspen Middle School students Hannah Small, Francesca Seeman and Perry Romero stand in front of the leaning tower of Pisa, one of many sightseeing excursions during their exchange to Abetone, Italy.

If these first few weeks back home are any indication, they’ve hit the nail on the head. Travel, I know from my own experiences, teaches you in a way no textbook or teacher ever can. I recognize this in my daughter as she tells and re-tells stories from her trip. It is amazing to live in her shoes for a moment. So while I did not get the pleasure of an offseason escape this fall, I feel like I have had the experience of a lifetime. Sometimes, traveling to another world can happen without even leaving Aspen. But don’t get me wrong — next year, my passport is getting stamped, too. – Jeanne McGovern

THIS IS THE STORY OF A POSSIBLE MIRACLE

SOMETHING I’VE NOTICED about myself: For a person who doesn’t necessarily believe in miracles — someone who isn’t even sure where he falls on the existence-of-God question — I use the word “miracle” a lot. Part of this might be that I’ve become accustomed to having the word on my tongue, since my best friend is named Miracle. It’s not a nickname; it’s the last name he was born with, but he is deserving of it. Beyond referring to the Miracle Man, though, I tend to use the “M”-word to describe a lot of things, most of which, even I can recognize, don’t quite fall under the hand-of-God category. (Or as Jules in “Pulp Fiction” would put it, an “according to Hoyle … divine intervention”): The Denver Nuggets beating the Philadelphia 76ers last season, after being down eight with less than two minutes to go. (For the record, the website Denver Stiffs called it a “miracle comeback.”) My knowing, with absolute certainty, the exact line Uncle Jack would speak to Todd in the “Granite State” episode of “Breaking Bad” regarding Todd’s crush on Lydia. (You might have to give me this one: A neo-Nazi New Mexican meth dealer quoting Woody Allen — “The heart wants what the heart wants” — is not something you can chalk up to logic.)

The onion rings at Hickory House — not just how good they already were, but the fact that about two years ago, they got even better. Significantly. My latest brush with the inexplicable, though, easily surpasses these. For a couple of weeks I had been wanting to find a book about divorce — the perfect book by the just-right author that would speak to me about this life-altering event I was going through. (Another of the things I have attached to the word miracle is the fact that my wife and I remained married for 17 years.) After a while I began asking friends if they had such a book to recommend. On the drive for a weekend trip to Marble, I put the question to my buddy Dan, a sensitive, divorced sort who I figured

Winifred Carol Wyman

Little ‘Star’ is only 10 pounds but has a big personality! She looks like a red Dachshund with extra long legs which makes her very agile, quite athletic and really adorable! Star is only 11 months old so is very playful but also sweet and cuddly. Star loves to play with other dogs and can even keep up with the bigger ones. She also gets along fine with cats and kids. She is funny, a bit bossy, loves to carry her toys around and not a chewer. This playful puppy is going to bring much joy to whoever gets to adopt her! She is already spayed, up to date with shots and micro chipped.

BOOK REVIEW

‘THE LAST WEREWOLF’ “…I MAKE NO APOLOGY and ask no forgiveness. I’m a man. I’m a monster. A cocktail of contraries.” Such are the musings of world-weary Jake Marlowe: millionaire, misanthrope, scotch aficionado, centenarian and ruthless werewolf. To Jake, his long life and the endless repetition of history has left him mordant and apathetic. His friend and familiar, Harley, cannot shake him from his torpor. Even when he informs Jake that his only other contemporary was just hunted and beheaded leaving him the last member of an ancient world mythology, Jake can only feel resignation to his circumstance. At the age of 200 with a 400-year lifespan, he is experiencing a profound mid-life crisis that he is unable to free himself of, shackled as he is to the Sisyphean pattern of a world as predictable as the moon and its phases. His life story chronicled and in safe stewardship, Jake is ready to succumb by ELIZABETH C. GORSKI | edited by WILL SHORTZ

to the werewolf hunters perennially pursuing him. And this would be fine, if it didn’t interfere with the intentions of the hunters in question: Grainer, the Hunt’s vendetta-fueled elite agent, who won’t be satisfied unless Jake suffers; and a group of vampires who, for reasons unknown, will stop at nothing to keep him alive. With “The Last Werewolf,” author Glen Duncan gives us something we sorely lacked: a monster story for adults. It would be a mistake to confuse Duncan’s brainy, unapologetically graphic prose with any of the work of his contemporary monster novelists. Here there are real monsters, with no love triangles and sparkling undead to fanaticize the tween masses. The characters are shockingly violent and fraught with all of the more unpleasant characteristics of mankind. Yet through it all, the monsters remain ceaselessly likeable. So much so you might find yourself questioning the voracity of your own morals. As Duncan

says, “The first horror is there’s horror. The second is you accommodate it.” And accommodate it I did! During a time saturated with vampire books, shows and movies, it is refreshing to have a book that not only places werewolves in the spotlight but threatens to dethrone their immortal counterparts. Here is a novel that will have you discarding our favorite (but overwrought) True Blood protagonists and their static storylines in favor of Duncan’s rich, enrapturing werewolf world. The perfect autumnal read, pick up a copy and read it while the mood of October is still upon you. No book I can think of is better suited for a quiet moonlit night in front of the fireplace with a warm beverage, or as our lycanthropic friend would prefer, a few fingers’ worth of scotch.
