US Airways - November 2013 - (Page 9)

From the Editor embark Wander and Wonder ★ cover photo by adam lubroth When you take a look at this month’s cover story on page 52, you might be tempted to book a flight to Madrid. Our writer, Alex Salkever, ate his way through Spain’s capital city and discovered why Madrileños pack the tapas bars at all hours for those tasty bites sometimes disguised as art forms. We’re betting that few of you have heard of cyclocross. With century-old roots in Europe, this grueling bikebased winter sport is becoming something of a phenomenon in the U.S. In the words of one rider, it’s all about suffering. Our story, by cyclocross fan Brion O’Connor, begins on page 37. Making plans for a trip to New York City? Don’t leave before reading Megan Eileen McDonough’s “Wandering Manhattan,” a journey into the The Story Behind the Stories By Lance Elko neighborhoods less traveled for great finds in food, music, art, and fashion. Megan, herself a Manhattanite, is an urban explorer with curiosity and energy to match. She begins her tour on page 41. For something new that’s actually very old, check out “A Taste of Honey.” Nick Passmore looks at the revival of one of the the world’s oldest brews, mead. We include a list of our favorite brands if you’d like to give it a shot. Our story starts on page 19. Finally — and fittingly for this month’s Veterans Day observation — turn to page 12 for our story on US Airways’ 300th Honor Flight, which recently brought a planeful of WWII veterans to our nation’s capital.
