Where To Go Next: The Best Places to Travel in the US in 2019

December 6, 2018 - | Jenn Rice


Where: Jackson Hole, Wyoming

Chosen By: Jenn Rice is a freelance culinary arts and travel writer for digital outlets such as Vogue, Domino, Sunset, Food & Wine, Extra Crispy and more. She spends the majority of her time galavanting around the globe in search of interesting bites and chefs, lesser-known wine regions and up-and-coming cities and destinations.

Why: Jackson Hole Mountain Resort has it all — the country’s most applaudable terrain and magnetizing attractions. Jackson Hole Mountain Resort’s RPK3 is set to be Teton Village’s most happening aprés spot, with craft punch and savory bites. If vino is your jam, the team at Enoteca showcases interesting finds from around the world. During the 2018-19 ski season, the husband-wife duo behind nearby hot spots Streetfood at the Stagecoach and Butter Cafe will open a pop-up coffee shop in the AspensJackson Hole Food & Wine’s slopeside winter fest (February 28 to March 2) returns with guest chef Richard Blais, local Teton Village chefs and celebrated mixologists, winemakers and tastemakers from near and far. If you're in town, grab a spicy Mexican hot chocolate from Coco Love, helmed by master chocolatier Oscar Ortega, and peruse local photographer Tuck Fauntleroy’s Waterline series, capturing remote Yellowstone rivers during a precise window of time during spring, at Tayloe Piggott Gallery. Also keep an eye out for pop-ups from Hide Altitude: Their cowhide bags should be on everyone’s must-get list. It will be hard to leave without a stop by Mursell’s Sweet Shop for confectionaries from around the world, MADEfor handmade curiosities and Persephone Bakery for a kouign amann. Save room for a meat-filled sandwich from Sweet Cheeks Meats and a few cold ones at the Roadhouse Pub & Eatery — a new gastropub-meets-test kitchen where beer fanatics get the chance to test new brews before anyone else. Where to stay? Featuring artwork by local artist Amy Ringholz, Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole is a solid bet if you're seeking a snowglobe-like stay and shredding in a pair of the resort’s exclusive Sego skis. Or check out the Anvil Hotel, a hip boutique hotel in the heart of town with a mercantile selling warm-weather goods, spiked hot chocolate libations from New York City’s Death & Co., whiskey tastings, cookie classes with Lady in the Wild West and Glorietta, an Italian trattoria that’s arguably the best eatery in town.

Tiny Shiny Stuff

September 24, 2018 - Andreas Rauth

It is still true that nature owes everything to nature. This does not only mean the imitation of external reality in its inventory, that is, the writing of what is not human work. The work of Astrid Köppe can be regarded as exemplary for an art that goes beyond nature and yet is completely impregnated by it. An art that penetrates the secrets of nature, turning them into secrets of art.
