Ezra's Place-dinner at the bowling alley

The first I heard of Ezra's Place was a sign in the window of Sophia's Place on Fourth Street announcing that Dennis Apodaca (the man behind Sophia's) had opened a new restaurant at the Lucky 66 Bowl across the street. The next I heard of it was a review on Gil's Thrilling (And Filling) Blog.… Continue

Mr. Hot Lix

Back in 1973 when I was 11 years old, I fell in love. It’s a love that has never waned. I was sitting in a movie theater here in Burque watching American Graffiti when love found me. No, it wasn’t a schoolgirl crush on… Continue

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
