Morning Fix: Park It


Added by Somegye on August 27, 2008 at 5:00am — 4 Comments

Its all fun and games, until someone looses an eye, then its a Sport!

Its no secret, I'm a geek at heart, actually I'm proud to be as geeky as I am! One of my many geeky pastimes is Beer and Airhockey. For a while there we had regular Beer and Airhockey nights, sometimes we had anywhere from 2 to 25 people show up to play. We even had a web-app client roster and score tally we could update with our phones (years before Twitter).

Yep we were that geeky. believe it or not there were girls too that cane to play… Continue

A Rambling Head Case Waits For His Girlfriend

NOB HILL--Yesterday afternoon I was waiting in front of the Central Ave. Flying Star for my beautiful GF to come walking down the street. I love meeting her as she walks home from work. Last Thursday we met at an outdoor table in front of La Montanita Co-op. Today it's the FS.

Ants in my Pants

I'm a little antsy these days. Last April I flew out to Virginia for a bike ride and didn't get home until 8 days ago. It was the… Continue

Working my way out of a funk: getting dirty, growing things, feeding people.

After talking with a friend of mine who is the garden coordinator for Hope's Half Acre, I jumped on board as a volunteer waterer, weeder, and all around garden helper. I was in a funk at the beginning of the summer and this was just the thing to do to work through it. I love gardening, and since my home garden mostly consists of potted plants and vegetables, it felt good getting my hands in the dirt. It's hard to describe exactly what it is, that hour… Continue

Expanded Bike Parking in Nob Hill: An Appreciation

new bike racks

When they began removing the parking meters in parts of Nob Hill this year, I became worried. This was not because I am a frequent car parker, or someone that fears technology (although the old parking meters were much more aesthetically pleasing than the black Monuments to Parking that replaced them). It was because of the simple equation: fewer parking meters =… Continue

Lobo Lineage

The first time I saw Albuquerque was during winter break of my senior year of college. My 3 year old son and I drove east from California in an aging pickup truck to check out the University of New Mexico and Albuquerque as a possible place to spend a few years while I attended graduate school.

The two of us had been to… Continue

Weekend Around ABQ Part II

Well I made it out and about in ABQ for a 3rd afternoon in a row! Woohoo! And this was close to home. There was a lot of arguing in the news and various websites about closing Central and alleged bus service disruptions, etc. etc. But you know what? This was fun, it was a quiet Sunday afternoon in Nob Hill, hence minimal disruption, and I get tired of hearing people whine. The Shop and Stroll was… Continue

Shop'n'Stroll photo tour

Sunday, August 24. It's 1pm and I've just tried cafe de olla and/at Los Equipales for the first time. Lovely. Today's actual destination is Nob Hill- all of it. It's the second Sunday Shop and Stroll and we're going to check it out. As promised, all car traffic on Central between Girard and Washington is gone. Free reign for bicyclists and pedestrians.…

Weekend Around ABQ Part I

On the eve of the most wonderful time of the year I really start to get into "the spirit". The spirit of The Land of Enchantment, and of Albuquerque. The most wonderful time of the year for me is Labor Day through Christmas. OK, well around here it may extend through St. Patrick's Day! But we have Chile roasting, The NM Wine Festival,… Continue

Birds of the SW in the SE Heights

This has been a great year for hummingbird visitors. For the last few weeks a rufus has claimed the feeder outside my office window. This one comes back every 20 minutes- which suggests to me C's formula for bird-smack is working really well (Perhaps she'll post her secret recipe).…

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I got the urge to write again and I pondered the subjects swirling around in my brain. Should I go with chile roasting, or should I write about The Dead Donor Rule, the ethics of which was discussed in a recent issue of The New England Journal of Medicine?

To some of you, this may seem like a no-brainer dilemma. I mean, c'mon! This joint ain't called Duke City Fix fer nuthin' and chile roasting would be about our most favorite thing in the whole wide world: chile. How… Continue

Do you wanna be on Foodie TV?!

I know there was a post a few days ago about Sophia's being on 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' and I responded to say that I knew the show would be filming at The Standard Diner on Central as well. Today I got a call from one of the owners of The Standard, telling me to invite all my friends to come to lunch tomorrow (Thursday 8/21), and be in the background for filming. I guess they're starting filming in the morning and will continue throughout the day. The restaurant opens at 11 am and if you… Continue

Where in 'Burque is Adelita? (numero cinco, the final installment)

My daughter made me cry the other day, and not because she was being unkind or for being an insensitive teenager. As we were snapping pictures for this series, she exclaimed, “This has been the best summer ever!” I asked her why and she said that she loved going to work with me as a junior docent at the museum. She also said it was a great summer because she had so much fun discovering… Continue

Fountain At UNM By College of Education

Its been there a long time, standing tall and white (its now turquoise) splashing away there in its circular pond. I know it so well, but yet i don't even know the name of the piece or who made it. Im talking about the big Fountian there at the end of Cornell Mall, north of the SUB and south of the COE.

My Grandparents even had the artist's 3' working model in their backyard with their own little fishpond, The little pond pump constantly got clogged with algae and sometimes the… Continue

Local Etsy of the Week-CrochetByLoriLeigh

This week's featured Albuquerque Etsy seller is CrochetByLoriLeigh. She doesn't say very much about herself in her profile but her hats speak for themselves. I have to say that I like the haughty mannequin head almost as much as the gorgeous hats she wears. Here are some of my favorite cloches:…
