Welcome to the Discover 361 – the Victoria Advocate’s new lifestyle magazine that explores how our readers are living life in the area.

If the name sounds familiar, that is because the name is similar to the former Discover the Crossroads magazine. While that was an annual publication, the new Discover 361 will publish quarterly.

This completely new magazine will introduce you to local people who are making a difference; explore fashion, show you how to spend leisure time and take care of your skin and of course ways to entertain yourself and your friends and family.

Everyone knows him, but we also give you a quick look into a day in the life of Gary Moses. The man can be found at just about any event in the Crossroads. Find out what he has for breakfast, the brand of shoes he wears and what keeps him motivated during these events.

For those who have missed Tony Vasquez’s Out and About with Tony photos from social gatherings, we have a treat for you. Tony is back as a staple in the magazine. He attended eight events for this first issue. See who he photographed and where.

Another local favorite – foodie Dennis Patillo – gives us tips for cooking wild game. He also provides recipes for some yummy sounding dishes from duck poppers to wild hog and dove.

With this being the fall issue, we focus on the great outdoors with a visit to a hunting lodge. We also talk with a hunting guide, taxidermists, a dog trainer and gun collectors.

Our fashion section can’t be overlooked as we have Victoria couple Tommy and Spring Taylor model Texas chic fashion that can be casual for the hunting lease or dressed up for a night out on the town.

We have so much more to offer than I can’t list it all here. We hope you enjoy reading our premiere issue.

Happy Reading,

Becky Cooper
