Oh so tiiired. But, I'm gonna peck this here report out before I lay me down to sleep. As opposed to Mick Jagger's famous words... I got plenty of satisfaction tonight. If I overheard Santa Ana (pronouced Santana) Casino employees right, that was the biggest party in New Mexico. "Albuquerque the Magazine's Best of the City Party 2008". Congratulations… Continue

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
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?
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:… Continue
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
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
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?
On Friday December 5th, at 6:00 pm, we will unveil the exciting and mysterious contents of our Front and Main Galleries. Over one hundred artists are participating in this year's fund raising exhibition and art sale: 12x12 and the work is a sight to behold! (Preview here.)
The premise is simple: we asked community artists from near and far to create a piece of art… Continue
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
For those of you who do not already know, New Urban Transport is leaving the scooter scene after 6 years of sales and service to the Albuquerque scooter community. In the wake of this transition, 66 Scooters and Mopeds will be opening in their very same location, just after the new year!
66 S&M will offer service, repairs, parts, and accessories - with some new lines of mopeds coming in the… Continue
JUSTin from SpaceWeather.com:->DOUBLE FLYBY ALERT: Space shuttle Endeavour undocked from the International Space Station this morning (11/28/08), and the two spacecraft are now orbiting Earth in tandem. Endeavour is scheduled to land in Florida on Sunday, Nov. 30th. Between now and then, many sky watchers (especially those in Europe) will be able to see the shuttle and the space station cutting across the night sky together--a… Continue
