Saturday's installment of Evan Kleiman's Good Food, the weekly hour-long radio program out of KCRW in Santa Monica, featured a short interview with Eric Szeman of Route 66 Malt Shop talking about root beer!
So we are going to try and blow it up bigger than ever, This will be the Summer of Fun, the Endless Summer but with less surfing and more art. But we are still in the works of finding a place so if you know anyone who wants to rent a space for the night, Please let them know about what we do.
Right now we are working on the Project: Ugly American which is a Black Market Show in Tokyo with 10-15 artists. I admit that we are really just planning a drinking tour of Japan but that's in… Continue

Early last week I was lamenting the not at all recent closing of Musashino, a fantastic Japanese restaurant that shut their doors about 8 years ago. The two years preceding their closure my partner in crime and I used to occasionally flee the front of the house chaos at the nearby microbrewery where we waited tables to sample the finest in Nipponese fare. We would escape the glare of the mid summer sun into the cool dark of this North San Pedro hole in the wall run solely by an aged Japanese… Continue

I'm fortunate enough to have a job that allows me to take a couple of hours off in the afternoon when the mood strikes me. I'm also always looking for an excuse to take the new bike out, put the two together and a scant five minutes later I was on the road, heading west down Lead.
I had pulled up the Google map of Albuquerque to plot my route and Tingley Park jumped out at me. I…
OLD ROUTE 66, 5 MILES EAST OF ABQ--This is where James Quinn died. He was hit from behind by an automobile while riding his bike on the shoulder next to the white line. His wife Ashley was riding next to him. All this is Old News to many of you, for I wrote about it last October. Back then Sheriff Darren White would not release any details of the accident including the name of the…
I cannot take it anymore. The winter and winter term is taking its toll. Every single girl in my house i want to strangle. I cannot wait til the weather starts getting better, and my mood changes. Right now, I just want to be somewhere where nobody knows me, to me new people, new faces, and not feel like i am living the same day over and over and over again. I want someone who I can talk to that isn't telling me every second what her ex boyfriend is doing or what she is thinking about him… Continue
The Chieftains preserve their Irish heritage through heart-pounding rhythm and soaring melodies. With an extensive touring history and over forty albums, their music reaches millions of people each year worldwide.
Formed in 1962, many of the original members of The Chieftains were top folk musicians in Ireland. The band firmly rooted themselves into the musical community in 1975 when they recorded the soundtrack to the movie Barry… Continue
Have you taken a look at the long list of capital projects the Legislature approved? Words like repetitive, unbalanced, hodgepodge, come to mind.
I skim the list fast looking for six-figures. These big ticket items always seem to be corporate give-aways.
For a start, lets look at the disheartening… Continue
We finally made it over to Busters 66 Coffee Shop for breakfast this morning and loved it! I had the breakfast burrito and a double latte, while the wife had bagels and lox...I think. I was really too busy snarfing on my burrito and enjoying the brew. Both were excellent! Plus the staff is very friendly too (must be a… Continue
Well, here is another site that has bothered me for a long time. It is at the corner of Central and Walter, across from the Grove Cafe. I really dislike empty lots in Albuquerque. So much empty space here in the city and still people want to develop on untouched land...This site could easily be three stories and should try to fit in with the neighborhoods history and character. This brick building might look nice, or something similar to mesh with the old Albuquerque high school down the road.… Continue
Just twenty-three wild Mexican Gray Wolves are left in New Mexico today. Ignoring science and bowing to pressure from special interests, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has abandoned its legal obligation to protect, conserve, and recover the Mexican Gray Wolf - the most endangered mammal in North America. Rather, conflicts (whether real or induced) are routinely resolved by killing or permanently removing wolves, risking the second extinction… Continue
