Weekend Around ABQ Part II





Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

Shop'n'Stroll photo tour

Sunday, August 24. It's 1pm and I've just tried cafe de olla and/at Los Equipales for the first time. Lovely. Today's actual destination is Nob Hill- all of it. It's the second Sunday Shop and Stroll and we're going to check it out. As promised, all car traffic on Central between Girard and Washington is gone. Free reign for bicyclists and pedestrians.…

Weekend Around ABQ Part I



On the eve of the most wonderful time of the year I really start to get into "the spirit". The spirit of The Land of Enchantment, and of Albuquerque. The most wonderful time of the year for me is Labor Day through Christmas. OK, well around here it may extend through St. Patrick's Day! But we have Chile roasting, The NM Wine Festival,… Continue

Birds of the SW in the SE Heights

This has been a great year for hummingbird visitors. For the last few weeks a rufus has claimed the feeder outside my office window. This one comes back every 20 minutes- which suggests to me C's formula for bird-smack is working really well (Perhaps she'll post her secret recipe).…

TIME TO ENLIST ABQ BRAIN POWER!

Nob Hill Yannis



You can read a Happiness Report in 2005 sending Development Kudos to those who destroyed an eyesore Nob Hill Parking lot at the old Baca Restaurant site to make way for a progressive Lofty Loft with commercial opportunities at the base of the residential provisions.



ARE WE SUCKERS? We lost the quaint, tourist attraction of Nob Hill when the city planners allowed an… Continue

ABQ Gorgeous as Fay drenches N. Florida

This is off topic for 'Burque (unless you were born in Jacksonville, Florida like me or have relatives there) but it is just so gosh darn beautiful here this noon with a slight touch of fall in the air under a sky blue sky...



This post just in from FRESHCHAOS.com:-> Tropical Storm Fay is not moving...Jacksonville, Florida looks to 3 pm (EST) high tide of St. John's River to be… Continue

Sex and the Olympic city

I've been watching a pretty good deal of the Olympic games, in spite of NBC's pathetic coverage. Why can't the US networks get it right? Anyway I suppose one has to figure that with all these young, fit athletes, from all parts of the world milling about, something has to be going on at Olympic village after dark - wonder no more :) Here's an article by Matthew Syed, a former Olympian, over at the http://www.timesonline.co.uk:

We almost hit two boys on Central.

Two boys made it to their bus on time but nearly lost their lives. We were driving down Central singing to Duffy’s “Mercy” and thinking about chocolate shakes. Our original plan was to hit the Route 66 Diner because a diner and a shake seemed just the thing. We arrived and got seated by the cashier who, he informed us, would also take our order. We waited happily anticipating shakes, talking about our day. After about twenty minutes we realized he had taken the order of the two women sitting… Continue

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I got the urge to write again and I pondered the subjects swirling around in my brain. Should I go with chile roasting, or should I write about The Dead Donor Rule, the ethics of which was discussed in a recent issue of The New England Journal of Medicine?



To some of you, this may seem like a no-brainer dilemma. I mean, c'mon! This joint ain't called Duke City Fix fer nuthin' and chile roasting would be about our most favorite thing in the whole wide world: chile. How… Continue

Homeless Pugs. In need of a lap dog?

Local non-profit New Mexico Pug Rescue takes care of pugs that are without a home. Owners, for a variety of reasons (moving, too busy, health issue, dog grew up from being a puppy, etc.), choose to get rid of their pugs, and if the pugs are lucky... they make it to pug rescue.



Kelly, the official 'pug lady' of the rescue, does amazing work. For the year that I've known her, at any point in time she could be taking care of one pug up to 10+.… Continue

Do you wanna be on Foodie TV?!

I know there was a post a few days ago about Sophia's being on 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' and I responded to say that I knew the show would be filming at The Standard Diner on Central as well. Today I got a call from one of the owners of The Standard, telling me to invite all my friends to come to lunch tomorrow (Thursday 8/21), and be in the background for filming. I guess they're starting filming in the morning and will continue throughout the day. The restaurant opens at 11 am and if you… Continue

Year Long Road Trip Experiment Comes to Burque



Not sure how long they'll be in town or if they've already skedaddled up north to the Democratic Convention. And it's good to see that Joel-Peter Witkin is still at it...…

Where in 'Burque is Adelita? (numero cinco, the final installment)

My daughter made me cry the other day, and not because she was being unkind or for being an insensitive teenager. As we were snapping pictures for this series, she exclaimed, “This has been the best summer ever!” I asked her why and she said that she loved going to work with me as a junior docent at the museum. She also said it was a great summer because she had so much fun discovering… Continue

NM-Powered

Last weekend New Mexico Youth Organized hosted a retreat to bring together active young “doers” from around the state to network with one another and brainstorm on how to make New Mexico a better state. On the bus ride to the super fancy “Sunrise Springs Resort” the participants took turns hooking up their I-Pods on the stereo blasting everything from reggae to hip-hop and alternative tunes. Before we arrived I already knew it was an amazing group, music says a lot about people.

As we… Continue

Fountain At UNM By College of Education

Its been there a long time, standing tall and white (its now turquoise) splashing away there in its circular pond. I know it so well, but yet i don't even know the name of the piece or who made it. Im talking about the big Fountian there at the end of Cornell Mall, north of the SUB and south of the COE.



My Grandparents even had the artist's 3' working model in their backyard with their own little fishpond, The little pond pump constantly got clogged with algae and sometimes the… Continue

Local Etsy of the Week-CrochetByLoriLeigh

This week's featured Albuquerque Etsy seller is CrochetByLoriLeigh. She doesn't say very much about herself in her profile but her hats speak for themselves. I have to say that I like the haughty mannequin head almost as much as the gorgeous hats she wears. Here are some of my favorite cloches:…
