Last weekend was really full
so this weekend I'm taking things easy. One day, one major activity. Saturday is for watching belly dancers, Sunday is for hiking. The best part is, you can do it as well- it's all happening next weekend too. All links are clickable for full size pictures.
Saturday, Novermber 22, 2008- It's 12:30PM and we're on our way to… Continue

I left work a little early on Friday and stopped along the way to photograph these memorials people leave. It was a lot more dangerous that I thought it would be and I'm not going to even try the ones between Albuquerque and Santa Fe. I missed about half of them between Belen and Albuquerque because I couldn't safely pull over and get a picture.
I've been wanting to do this for a couple of years and am glad I was finally able to do it. Perhaps using a motorcycle would be safer or… Continue

What a warm beautiful Saturday afternoon. What a nice day to put the top down and take a long ride
… or patch the roof! God I loves me a roof. Well, to hang out on, not fix! Unfortunately I only came to grips with the need for some patching shortly before my vacation a few weeks ago. Porch roof, old and cracking, flat, leaking a tad in monsoon season, yada yada. Did… Continue

My mom called me a week or so ago telling me that i needed to go see the Guerrilla Girls
. I had no clue what she was talking about (which is odd since she raised me to be an artist and feminist....) and thought she was referring to Gorilla Tango. She described briefly what the GGirls were about and i mentally put the night into "Events I should
go to, but probably wont due to lack of disposable… Continue

Read the headlines on CNN, The Drudge Report, MSNBC ... and it will send you running for the hills with your shotgun and a suitcase of money. But with all the financial panic, high seas piracy, and new cabinet appointments, I was pleased to see that we in Albuquerque still know REAL
news when we read it.… Continue

I bet you've been wondering where I've been. I mean since that Hollywood Halloween anyway. No? Fine. Well last night I was at Imbibe! Wait, did I see you there? If not, you missed a great event. It was their "Drew Estate Night". Drew Estate
is a Nicaraguan cigar company... makers of the "Acid" line you may have heard of as well as about 7 others you may not have.… Continue

There are some rye whiskeys I can find around town: Old Overholt, Wild Turkey Rye and the baby Sazerac come to mind. And there are some that I can't: Rittenhouse Rye 100, Templeton, Old Rip Van Winkle Family Reserve Rye, Pikesville Supreme and Old Potrero. The "can't find" list always seems to be longer than the "can find" list. There's at least one reason for that.
When I pop into Jubilation looking for some obscure rye whiskey brand, they… Continue

I work at Central New Mexico Community College
and we have this really cool Culinary Arts Program.
At a meeting last week I was yapping on about stuffing, and then cooking, my turkey. Joyce Woodard, one of the Professional Cooking Instructors at CNM looked at me askance and said "that's totally not safe Alexis." It got me thinking, maybe its a… Continue

I meant to post this weeks ago, but finally got around to it. New Mexico has some really great hiking trails, and I have been covering a lot of ground this fall. I hike occasionally with the Albuquerque Hiking and Outdoor Meetup
. They have a lot of members and do a lot of hikes, especially in the Sandias, but also to the neighboring Jemez, Sangre de Cristo and sometimes even to Wheeler Peak or Sierra… Continue

Right outside my bedroom window stands an enormous mulberry tree. In the spring a strong gust of wind will literally cloud the air with its pollen- dust devils of unstoppable sneezes, mere feet from my pillow. This summer we planted 3 replacement trees. Now, the fun begins: taking down the old tree, bit by bit- making room for the new trees to grow in place.
These freshly cut branches and non-mulchy yard detritus accumulate much faster than… Continue

Thanks to Ron Da Bomb for posting the video about this store. I found it on the north side of Menaul (6611 Menaul NE next to AP-T camera) just west of Louisiana.
In we went and there's most of a wall and several racks and shelves dedicated to Duke clothing.…

UPDATE: The paid preview on 11/19 is SOLD OUT. Sorry. Come see us this week, or over the run!
I will be drumming in a stage production of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" beginning Thursday the 20th @ The Vortex. My band, Vertigo Venus, will be the Angry Inch. If you've seen the film, you'll love getting to hear this music live - this show is hilarious, rocking, and really fun. We're going for a whole month, and we've been working our asses off to make this thing… Continue

What a wild unexpected ride it's been! After five years as a local blogger including four at the helm of Duke City Fix, I'm retiring from blogging and officially turning over management of this site to Sophie Martin who's been running things on a day-to-day level for several months now... and swimmingly so.
UPDATE 3/20/2011: Sophie has moved onto other… Continue

Fear not, Burquenos, if you support gay marriage you don't have to stop eating Frontier rolls.
It all started with Jim Baca writing that the owners of Frontier
and Golden Pride were on the list of Prop 8 donors. (He later retracted the comments, see below)
Duke City Fix freaked out
that the gay marriage ban opposers at… Continue

So, I haven't been gone for long, but holy crap, I am so excited to be coming back to Albuquerque for ten days. (Yes, yes, I moved. Personal reasons, blah blah blah. I've spent the last 12 years trying to live in Abq and periodically getting booted out of the city for one reason or another.)
But whatever, hell yeah, I can't wait to see the Rio Grande, eat some kick ass food, visit with friends, (go to my best girlfriend's engagement party!) and walk around downtown, Nob Hill, the… Continue
