Strolby Travels: Eating (and Drinking, and Drinking) Our Way through Marfa

It takes a long time to get to Marfa from New York City. Strolby's editorial director Sarah and myself caught a plane out of LGA early Thursday morning, connected in Dallas to El Paso, then rented a car (red Mustang convertible!) and drove three hours on I-10/US-90E to Marfa.
