Overseen while walking by Imbibe.


Or perhaps I should spell it Imbib?

It's Cold!

We finally had our first fire of the year last night in our Kiva fireplace. I know that 20F is not that cold for some places, but I just wasn't ready for it this year. We have guests from New Hampshire this weekend and they are laughing at me.



Even with the small winter storms that blew through Albuquerque earlier in the week, I didn't feel it justified stoking up the fireplace. It still seemed pretty warm.



Our cold winter took forever to get here this year, but it has… Continue

Dear Albuquerque

Dear Albuquerque,





We met for the first time nearly a decade ago. You were meant to be a rest spot, a mere pause in my vector aimed somewhere else.



I had never even heard of Albuquerque—your name like a rock in my mouth, damn near impossible to spell. I had pictured desert palms sweeping upwards majestically, a globular sun bright as egg yolks. I imagined sand, coyotes, and glittery sombreros. I packed only shorts and t-shirts.



The giant Goodwill on Juan… Continue

A Rail Runner Video Blog

We went on Monday. Caught the Rail Runner at the downtown station and took it up to the Santa Fe Depot. Wandered around the plaza and came back. It was standing room only both ways. We got seats going up and I stood on the way back. Here's a look at what we saw before it got too dark to film out of the… Continue

Where in 'Burque is Adelita? (Holiday Edition)

While rushing around Christmas shopping, doing errands and meeting up with old friends, my daughter and I had to take pictures of some cool things we saw along the way. For those of you newbies not familiar with these posts, start here.



For those of you that are familiar, you know the routine! Whoever can guess the most correctly and tell me the where the photo… Continue

"It's Called the 10-Day Crud," She Said.

MaryAnn stood at the kitchen counter. I tried my best to get a good look at her. The Crud, now in its eighth day, had seemed to settle in my eyes on its way out.



"Yes," she said, "they say it spends three days coming, four days making you miserable, and three days leaving."



"Hmmph."



"Along the way it gives you a sore throat, watery itchy eyes, headaches, clogged up ears, a stuffy nose,… Continue

Las Posadas de Barelas 2008

The older I get, the more drawn I am to local neighborhood holiday traditions. Part of it is a nostalgic longing for community – I have happy childhood memories of large extended family gatherings. (To give you an idea what I mean by extended family - in just 10 minutes I came up with a list of more than 200 family members, and given another 20 minutes I could probably double that list. And this is without conferring with my mother, whose memory has a… Continue

Las Posadas

(cross posted from Forgotten Albuquerque



In name, at least, this blog is about “forgotten” things. The idea is that, on some level, all history is forgotten the moment the last person with memory of it dies. Therefore, those of us who find ourselves looking backwards are constantly trying to reconstruct experiences we’ve never had, poring over tattered documents and fading pictures, trying to put ourselves into moments forever sealed off… Continue

Posole



I was inspired by the lady who was giving samples of tamales from Bueno Foods at the grocery store. She gave me a recipe card for Holiday Posole from Bueno but I did my own thing.



Braise 2.5 pounds of pork neck bones with meat, add favorite seasoning to taste (I used salt, pepper, garlic powder, dried minced onion and season all). Add… Continue

WPMMSAAHCFTHCNDHE!

(Um... that's a big bag of stuff for the homeless pictured in the banner, from last year, pre Nikon... btw)



It’s that time of the year again. The time when our neighbors let the *incessantly barking dogs out just a little later, when the sun is warm. Peace and Joy? How about Peace and QUIET! The time when little old ladies hit your car not once but twice in the parking lot at… Continue

Notification and "standing" of non recognized Neighborhood Associations on zoning and planning issues

In listening to the City Council meeting of December 15, 2008 (AC-08-23 and the discussion regarding “notification”) I continue to be astounded by the degree to which some of our our elected officials embrace an archaic concept of privilege in matters of government information.



During the conversation regarding notification of land use matters scheduled to be heard by the EPC (or Council) to individuals, coalitions and non-recognized (alternative) neighborhood organizations… I saw… Continue

Little Red Hamburger Hut

Ever since Lota-gate I've been looking for a new place to get a good burger. Coincidentally, I've also meant to go try out a Wimpy's since time immemorial (Martini Mike's blog furthered the inspiration). Then one day, at Mountain and Sawmill, all was resolved.

We arrived at 11:20-… Continue

The 10:30am Railrunner to Santa Fe

Yes! Yes! We were on it. And it was great! Sure, we did go r-e-a-l-l-y slow at one point, but the views were more than worth it. We weren't on any time limits or job deadlines so we didn't care. Commuters grumbled but did they really expect to get there on time the first day? The very first trip of the day was worse than ours from what I understand.



The new snow really made the view incredible. We were just a few feet from the traffic on the slushy highway but it was like being in a… Continue

A Pleasant Lobo Surprise

We were walking up to The Pit last night to watch the UNM Lobos take on Oral Roberts University. It became immediately obvious that I had misplaced one of the tickets somewhere between my work, my house and Lobo Country.



Totally furious at myself, I prepared to throw myself at the mercy of the ticket-taker, explaining that I had bought two tickets and had lost one out… Continue

IMAX in ABQ?

So Regal Theaters has announced they are planning a 16 screen theater in the new Winrock development link here and I must say I am very torn on the idea. While I'm definetly not a Cinemark fan by any means, I do enjoy the idea of this theater continuing to pick away at what little crowds the Rio is still getting. When I worked for Century Theaters, customer service was at least mentioned in the training. The projectors… Continue
