Bon appetit

Main Avenue came alive with a multitude of palette-pleasing aromas Sunday afternoon as Durango's community of restaurants and breweries converged on downtown for this year's Taste of Durango. Pedestrians took to the streets sampling the gastonomical stylings of Durango's eateries and indulging in the cold libations
offered by local breweries. The sidewalks lining downtown Durango became standing-room-only due to the great weather and the festive sounds of Catch 22 and the Durango High School Jazz Ensemble.
