Take a field trip about a half hour down NM-14 to the funky little ex-mining town of Madrid to see the piles of mining slag featured in David Bowie’s The Man Who Fell to Earth. There are rows of eclectic art galleries and an old coal town museum, but the real highlight is the cowboyed-out Mine Shaft Tavern. This often-raucous old western bar serves up barbecue, burgers, and lively music events in a boot-stomping setting.
