ok, so i'm celebrating one month as an official resident of nob hill, and i decide to treat myself. i'm thinking something family owned, not one of the chains. i'm also feeling like eating new mexican, so i pull out my trusty bike and ride down to El Patio over on Harvard. i know, i know. never go there unless you want a "leisurely" meal, because if you're expecting prompt service, well, so what? but the patio has a certain charm, especially on such a beautiful evening. i sit down, and after… Continue

i've been in my new place in nob hill since mid february. i had my comcast service transferred over from the old place, and added on tv, so i now have the comcast bundle. ever since i've been here, my tv service has been subject to intermittent static. big time static. it varies in strength, and happens anytime during the day. sometimes it's mild,creating a static buzz in the background, and the picture isn't sharp like it's supposed to be. sometimes, (usually at night) the disturbance is so… Continue

Hey DC fixers! I hope everyone is well. I will be graduating from UNM in May and I am worried about finding a decent and affordable place to live. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions (besides moving back home with the parents). I do have a friend who wants to live with me so I am looking for a 2 bedroom, somewhere within the UNM vicinity, and no more than $750/month. I know, but its about all we can afford. Any suggestions/reccommendations will help. Thank you!

Every time I drive to the airport, I see the San Jose Cemetery just west of I-25 and south of Gibson. I always tell myself that one of these days I must stop and check out the cemetery on foot.
This past weekend I did just that.
Finding the entrance to the cemetery was a bit of a challenge – the dirt road from Gibson is blocked off due to construction on Gibson, and so I ended up entering from Edith just south of Gibson. There’s… Continue

We were fortunate enough to have Rick Collignon, New Mexico author of Perdido and the forthcoming Madewell Brown, stop by the store last week to talk to our staff. He'll be at Bookworks on May 17 at 3 p.m., but here's a preview. This is our first attempt taking video with our Flip camera, so it's a little shaky! We're still learning… Continue

is almost here! That's Persian New Year, which falls on the first day of spring (technically, the exact moment of the vernal equinox; this year, it's March 21 at 5:44am). I grew up within a sizable Iranian community in Milwaukee, and this was the social event of the year, hands down. There would be one or more huge parties with everyone dressed to the nines (and those Iranian ladies can get fancy, let me tell you), tons of food,… Continue

The Albuquerque Museum recently opened a new exhibit that explores the history, style and romantic era of the Alvarado Hotel. Our own beautiful old Harvey House, right in the heart of our city, knocked down in 1970 and now kind-of memorialized by the Alvarado Transit Center, which sits on the same ground.
I went for a very
quick look this past week, but wanted to save the real visit to be shared with my guy, who is a wild… Continue

Most of the time I am taking photographs of the beautiful scenery in New Mexico, but when we travel to Pajarito Mesa things change a bit. Today I spent the afternoon in the west mesa, and I don't know why it is, but I get this compelling sense of urgency to drive myself to the area for pictures.
