For those of you who do not already know, New Urban Transport is leaving the scooter scene after 6 years of sales and service to the Albuquerque scooter community. In the wake of this transition, 66 Scooters and Mopeds will be opening in their very same location, just after the new year!
66 S&M will offer service, repairs, parts, and accessories - with some new lines of mopeds coming in the… Continue

Twas the night before thanksgiving and all through the town… all the creatures were stirring. That was still a long work week. Let’s um “party”. The Sleestaks, featured in the December issue of Albuquerque the Magazine (written by yours truly!), are headlining at The Launchpad. The Launchpad was also voted “Best… Continue
Thanksgiving marks my first full year of going vegetarian. Don't worry, this post will not include the horrifying PETA video I received earlier this week. I'm not that much of a Debbie Downer on this "glorious" day of gratitude our country celebrates with balloon parades, football and eating a bird. However, this day that is so focused around food is an excellent time to appreciate sources of food and truly be thankful, or at least aware, about the… Continue
NOB HILL--Tim Prythero's show "Roadside Souvenirs" at Exhibit/208 is almost gone. Last chance is next Saturday from 10a.m. to 4p.m. If you are at all fuzzy about what Prythero's work looks like, then you have never seen it, for it is unforgettable.
He does still life constructions of what is in your messy neighbor's yard. Or what is being stored in some vacant lot of your childhood--dust… Continue
As a licensed massage therapist and neuromuscular therapist, I treat many people who have been in auto accidents. Many do not have MedPay. I've attempted to explain to clients and friends the benefits of having MedPay on your auto insurance policy - it costs very little and can provide a LOT of treatment options and benefits should you be in a car accident. And the following article explains a lot of that, very well.
The City partners with Walgreen's for a $5 discount when you purchase the $25 card. Once again, city doing it's job to support another box store. I understand the money you pay will allow you entrance to sites around town, but do I really need a plastic non-green friendly "q-card" to cover my entrance fees?…
Got wood? I do! Well I went and did it. I bought Firewood. I was so motivated from continued winterizing last weekend. Also, there was some mention of snow on Thanksgiving per the local news. I will believe it when I see it! Looks like a chilly 54 degrees on the forecast now. But… Continue
I just had to take out the cell phone camera and snap a shot of this neary new soccer jacket bearing the name of our state's Gov. Bill Richardson. Did he outgrow it? Soccer no longer his thing? Could be a collector's item but I left it on the rack for the next lucky shopper to snag.
SAN MATEO BLVD. SE & BLIGHT
Why is San Mateo Blvd. SE blighted? Why have some of the lots remained vacant for so long? And just Why hasn't anybody really developed this strip of land between Zuni Rd. and Gibson Ave.? I don't know.
But I'm trying to find out.
Hello everybody this is my first post!
As a first year grad student at UNM's School of Architecture and Planning, I've taken on the task of finding… Continue

Rocky Long complains that the Lobo fans just aren't there; can't sell out the stands for all the football games. The same is true for Lobo basketball, despite the "draw" of the Pit. Turnout for the only other games in town are also sporadic, with the most consistent being the Isotopes. But according to Mayor Marty and the City Council, all is good and growing Downtown, the only part of Albuquerque that seems to really matter to them.
Somehow everyone who doesn't go to see the… Continue

NOB HILL--A week ago Thursday I met a family on loaded touring bikes in front of my favorite bike shop, Two Wheel Drive. We spoke briefly. The man was in a hurry to leave. I went inside the shop, and they were gone when I came out. Two days later on The Duke City Fix, Mary Tafoya posted a discussion titled "… Continue
