Little Red Hamburger Hut

Ever since Lota-gate I've been looking for a new place to get a good burger. Coincidentally, I've also meant to go try out a Wimpy's since time immemorial (Martini Mike's blog furthered the inspiration). Then one day, at Mountain and Sawmill, all was resolved.

We arrived at 11:20-… Continue

Increasing Equity in your home

Question:

I just bought a house and plan to live in it for at least 5 years. What can I do to increase my equity besides making extra principal payments on my loan?







Answer:

Congratulations. You’ve bought a home in one of the best markets for buyers. Just the fact that you bought your house in a down market will give you a good chance of your house increasing in value while you live there. This, in turn, increases the amount of equity you have in your… Continue

The 10:30am Railrunner to Santa Fe

Yes! Yes! We were on it. And it was great! Sure, we did go r-e-a-l-l-y slow at one point, but the views were more than worth it. We weren't on any time limits or job deadlines so we didn't care. Commuters grumbled but did they really expect to get there on time the first day? The very first trip of the day was worse than ours from what I understand.



The new snow really made the view incredible. We were just a few feet from the traffic on the slushy highway but it was like being in a… Continue

Warning to all the new arrivals to Albuquerque: My $50.00 Parking Mistake @ 6th and Lomas

ok, 1st i'd like to explain that there were signs everywhere stating if you didn't put money in the box, your car would be disabled, and it would cost $50.00 to have the boot taken off. i had just pulled in to the parking lot next to the Subway, never been there before, was getting a sandwich to go. i looked around for the box, i took a few steps towards the middle of the parking lot, looking for one. didn't see one. i figured 5 minutes tops, i wasn't eating on the premises, no harm no foul.… Continue

A Pleasant Lobo Surprise

We were walking up to The Pit last night to watch the UNM Lobos take on Oral Roberts University. It became immediately obvious that I had misplaced one of the tickets somewhere between my work, my house and Lobo Country.



Totally furious at myself, I prepared to throw myself at the mercy of the ticket-taker, explaining that I had bought two tickets and had lost one out… Continue

IMAX in ABQ?

So Regal Theaters has announced they are planning a 16 screen theater in the new Winrock development link here and I must say I am very torn on the idea. While I'm definetly not a Cinemark fan by any means, I do enjoy the idea of this theater continuing to pick away at what little crowds the Rio is still getting. When I worked for Century Theaters, customer service was at least mentioned in the training. The projectors… Continue

Landlord Pulls Out of 66 S&M. No Reach-Around.

Sorry for the vulgar post title [OK, not really], but I thought I'd get as much mileage out of 66 S&M [Scooters & Mopeds] as I could, now that it is veritably finished.



About 2 months ago, New Urban Transport announced it was closing down, after it's primary lines of scooters [Genuine and Kymco] were bought out by Vespa of Albuquerque [those zany Garcia brothers]. Not being able to stand the idea of a University area without a scooter shop, I jumped at the opportunity… Continue

BMG studios in business!

So it looks like Black Market Goods will be taking over Stove gallery. They are sadly packing it in but Thomas has asked us to carry on the legacy of the space. We will move into our permanent home by the end of this month, leaving us a month to get situated and then we will have our launch show in Feb. We will offer artist studio space, gallery rentals for events and the like, and photography studio rentals by the hour and space. As we prolong we will offer our graphic design services for all… Continue

Mothering From Afar



I can’t say that I’ve always seen eye to eye with departing Congresswoman Heather Wilson, but part of me has a soft spot for her. You see, we’re both members of a fairly small club – the club of Albuquerque mothers who commute by jet to work.



Long distance commuting wasn’t what I set out to do when I started down my career path. Like most people, I assumed that I’d get my education and then get a… Continue

Book reviews - week of December 15

Hanukkah and Christmas are almost here! Below are some reviews of great new books our staff liked.



Don't Look Now by Daphne Du Maurier

Patrick McGrath (introduction)

(Random House $15.95)


Daphne du Maurier wrote some of the most compelling and creepy novels of the twentieth century. In books like Rebecca, My Cousin Rachel, and Jamaica Inn she transformed the small dramas of everyday life-love, grief, jealousy-into the stuff of nightmares. Less known,… Continue

Buying a house together, when only one of you is getting the mortgage.

Question:

My partner and I are planning to buy a house together, but we will get a much better rate if I am the only one on the mortgage. What is the best way to move forward so that we both own the property, but we get the best financing possible?



Answer:

When a couple goes to buy a house, they often find out that one person is in much better shape financially than the other. In this case, as in yours, it’s better for one person to take out the mortgage on the house. The… Continue

Tonight we used the ZipCar for the first time.

Tonight we used the ZipCar for the first time.



We had a tight time frame - I had an 8 PM house call that was 90 minutes - and the bus ends its service around 6:30 PM on Sunday evenings.



Fortunately, the ZipCar was right where they said it would be - .42 miles from our house - and my office is mid-way - so we got right to the ZipCar the moment our reservation began - at 8 PM - and then ran back to my office to pick some house call stuff up.



The ZipCar we got is a… Continue

Bush's Victory Lap Halted With a Size 10

Life update

Hedwig continues to consume most of my life. Last week's thursday show was quite awesome, as it so happened that Brian Lucero (Hedwig) slammed his face into the stage during the deconstruction (during the song, "Exquisite corpse"), and proceeded to stand up, bleeding profusely from his face. We all of course took it in, and used it to finish the play in high fashion.



The rest of the shows have been quite good, save for tonight, which was very hard to get thru, being that the creeping… Continue
