Pressing Sushi-Related Tipping Question

Just curious if anyone can offer some enlightenment on appropriate sushi restaurant tipping? When out at sushi tonight we were trying to decide if we should tip the sushi chefs separately from the server? It hard to know if servers and sushi chefs share tips, especially when the chefs have a big ol' tip bucket on the top of the sushi bar.

Any thoughts on protocol? Any sushi chefs or servers out there that want to weigh in on this general or how it works at your restaurant?

Local Etsy of the Week: Metalmoco

This week's Albuquerque Etsy seller (the first in a while) does that thing that I love; posts beautifully photographed product photos. The lighting, the framing, the background-bless his heart for being attentive to these critical details. Metalmoco's gorgeous pieces make me wish that I wore a belt, here are some of my faves:…

The New Recycling Program - Bin Modifications



It's a good start to the neighborhood recycling program here in Burque, but I couldn't have my property tattooed with that f n "Q". They keep forcing it on me and I had to make the modification. Spray paint or vinyl work great. There are also some bumper stickers on the website that would cover that thing up. (click here for bumper… Continue

Dying From Homelessness: The Vigil

NOB HILL--"I don't believe it," I said. Lisa LaBrecque didn't flinch. She said it again. "For the last couple of years, 50 to 60 people have died of homelessness each year. This includes those whose health problems were exacerbated by living on the streets as well as those who died while actually being homeless." I knew homelessness was a problem, but never dreamed that people were dying from it at the rate of one per… Continue

Hire These Guys

I don't think I've given Albuquerque enough credit for being home to some really smart advertising folks. But that all changed today. Driving down the street I noticed a van for Royal Plumbing. White van...purple lettering...so? Their tagline! "Where A Royal Flush Beats A Full House." How can you not hire these guys?

Blue-Green the Cat

About 11 years ago, my family took a trip to the Animal Humane of New Mexico here in Albuquerque. The children were small, ages 8 and 3, and we were ready to give two homeless cats a home.



So we walked through the building and into the cat area, where my daughter, who had been waxing poetic as only three year olds can do, chattering on about her as yet sight unseen and unknown but already named cat… Continue

Martini Mike's Hangover Report- Thanksgiving Edition



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”.

Do you know where your turkey was last night?

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

Time to review your car insurance policy - and make certain you have MedPay

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.



As the end… Continue

The Q Card - Another Bad Idea







I continue to wonder why?...



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?…
