want a Grocery Store Downtown?

Hey young and old urbanites, I wish to address an issue that so many of my downtown friends and clients bring up... "We need a quality, full scale grocery store Downtown!"



It has gotten to the point in the last l5 or so years of active redevelopment of the urban core that we have HIT THE WALL with our progress! Buyer's come to me wanting to move downtown and many end up buying elsewhere because of access to a reasonable grocery store. Or, they buy downtown and want to sell a couple… Continue

Take the RailRunner to White Sands?

I stumbled across this story from some online publication called Examiner.com and was shocked by how much ignorance is contained in one short post about the Duke City and New Mexico.

Looking at Languages

I don’t consider myself a jetsetter, but from time to time I get to leave the country on business – I’ve just returned from a 10 day trip to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and am still somewhat jetlagged. Add being jolted out of bed… Continue

Willy Porter at the Cooperage, Amazing!

Thanks to the tickets I won here on DCF, my husband and I went to the Willy Porter show last night. It was an amazing show! Willy Porter is an incredible musician, talented, inspiring and funnier than hell! I haven't laughed so hard in years. He made me cry, laugh and just plain sit in awe of his talent.



Michael Chapdelaine opened the show, as usual, he put on an awesome show! We have seen Michael perform several times in the past and have… Continue

Kickin' it on Saturdays

A couple of years ago I switched my boys to a new league for playing soccer. We had been with another league but I just got tired of the antics - and found that Zia Futbol is a great place for my kids to have fun and learn the game.



And while spring soccer usually involves some cold games and practices (it was SNOWING during our last Friday practice!) we can usually count on some gorgeous days as well.



I love watch my children play, of… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Elaine Schwartz... Pilgrimage

Just reading this powerful piece is itself a "Pilgrimage"...a search for meaning, for significance. This poem has eyes. It sees beyond headlines. It caresses the human face of Truth. It will follow you home.





Albuquerque poet Elaine G. Schwartz lives with her husband, Daniel, and Purr’l the Postmodern Pussy Cat. Her work, best described as a tapestry of place and political imagination, has appeared in numerous publications including… Continue

Hominy (Posole)

Being relatively new to ABQ, can someone tell me the pros and cons of frozen vs canned hominy for making posole? I've used the frozen, and remember the "aroma" of canned from many many many years ago when it completely turned me off. Would it be more acceptable to use in posole, or just easier?

The Beginnings of a Bicycle Boulevard

I had yet to actually post a blog post on my profile here, preferring to just send people to my personal blog instead. But I felt like the birth of the bicycle boulevard was worthy of a first time post.



As shown in the photo above, I saw a bunch of markings on Silver Avenue south of UNM.



This is one of the pavement markings for the new Bicycle Boulevard system which has been talked about for months. These markings, along with… Continue

Morning Fix: Battle for the Sun



  • Alibi recaps the heartbreaking ordeal of developmentally disabled man Robert Gonzales. He sat jailed for nearly 1,000 days as the suspect in the 2005 Halloween death of an 11-year-old girl, even as DNA evidence pointed to another suspect as the killer.

Free Concrete Disposal

Daylight Savings time is practically synonymous with Home Improvement Season and that time is here again. We recently tore out a bunch of concrete in our back yard and needed a legal way to dispose of it. You can't throw it in your trash can, nor can you take it to one of the city's Convenience Centers. There's an even cheaper option: Take it to… Continue

The Sunday Poem: Merimee Moffitt... Three-Bucket Bath

Called "hippies" by a nation embroiled in war and inter-generational conflict, much of young America took to the road searching for a more compassionate, peaceful, and authentic way of life. Many came to New Mexico. And many stayed. That story shines through brilliantly in "Three-Bucket Bath." The poem brings a smile to my lips and tears to my eyes.



Merimee Moffitt left the Pacific Northwest in May 1970 in a shiny green Chrysler with two… Continue

Great Eats @ Guichos!

ok, after my dining debacle at El Patio, i decided to find some place that knows how to cook new mexican or mexican food, cuz i was still jonesin' for something more authentic. lo and behold, i found it. on the corner of monroe and central. when i moved here in 2002, it used to be a mom and pop place, typical breakfast and lunch menu. then it transformed into a place that served cuban food, (sorry, never tried it) and now it's Guichos, a mexican restaurant. the interior is painted in bright… Continue
