What's in a Name? Martini Mike's Hangover Report! for Saturday 080908



Could it be because my name is “Martini Mike” that I am becoming a sort of unofficial party guru? Or is it because I was an unofficial party guru that my name became “Martini Mike”? Hmmm… it boggles my pounding head. I was recently interviewed by www.VegasHappyHours.com, while in my home away from home, for the launch of their new site. Then suddenly I find myself being contacted by Lexi at Albuquerque The… Continue

Well, I'm back from Romania and glad to be home (my wife sent 505 Chile for me so I didn't suffer too much)

Can't say it was the best trip, didn't get to go out much and we were very restricted to when and where we could go and how we could get there and back.



This is the base we were on.

Since Hairy McLairy won the last "Where in Burque...", we decided to meet at the fair so I could deliver the prize. There are… Continue

Looking for opinions on who has the best red chile in Burque?

After devouring a plate of huevos rancheros this morning at Loyola's on Central, I was wondering what the good people of DCF had to say when it comes to the topic of red chile. I have noticed so many levels or styles of red chile right here in our fine city that its hard for me to say personally what is the best. I have had extremely hot, very silky and mild and everywhere in between. I enjoy the red chile at Sophia's Place, Loyola's, Marlene's, had some eye watering hot chile at the Red Ball… Continue

Summer Harvest

Instead of walking to the Downtown Grower's market, I harvested grapes and plums from the backyard this morning. Yum!

"Wednesday Night in Albuquerque" or "The State of Metal"... Martini Mike's Hangover Report



As I continue my recent and strange walk down musical memory lane I am again confronted with 80’s Metal guys. Wednesday night brought me to a place I had not gone in a while… the local metal show for the local metal non-crowd. A friend from high school talked me into it. Another old friend from… Continue

Found Balloon, Lost Balloon

I found a balloon on my ride home today!



It was really windy, and I was scooting home from work on Tijeras, right before it becomes MLK, and this balloon got swept up by a gust of wind and flew directly in front of my scooter. It was too good to resist-- I reached out and caught it!



I came home and grabbed my camera to take a picture of it attached to my scooter, but it blew away while I was trying to take it. Have you seen… Continue

Around the World on San Pedro

Who knew that San Pedro was such an international street of mystery? In one corner you have a Mexican restaurant, a French cafe and a tropical grill and sushi bar. Not to mention a phantom German bakery. Interestingly enough, nonexistent German pastries are also non-fattening. The recycled shopping center sign is a testament to the ghosts of restaurants past.



Feeling a hankering for French cuisine, we popped into Le Crepe Pierre for lunch.… Continue

Lineupper or Sidezoomer?

There was a little story in the "New York Times Magazine" on Sunday called "The Urge to Merge" by Cynthia Gorney. It brought up a serious question that I thought I would pose here: are you a lineupper or a sidezoomer?



Huh? Well, you know when you're on the freeway, approaching a construction zone and you see a sign that says "Right Lane Closed in 1 mile" or something… Continue

Where in 'Burque is Adelita? (numero cuatro)

So here we are at number four in a series of crazy posts. I thought this was going to be the last one, but my daughter demanded I do a couple more. We put on Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys (in honor of the concert we went to last week) and sang our hearts out in between screams of "STOP THE CAR!"

We've decided to call this one Animal House. We originally were… Continue

Camp Chaparral 2008



No, I didn't take a trip to California for exotic exploration of a natural land state. I camped out at my kids' elementary school (over on the westside) in the hopes of getting them into the city of Albuquerque's before and after school "playground" program.





This is the second time I've camped out at Chaparral Elementary school, and… Continue

A la vey! It's the VLA!

A la vey, I have to admit, I had never been to the VLA until last week. I even work with astronomers and work at a place with a big giant planetarium! I just never seemed to have the time to go.



My good friend is the outreach educator for the NRAO/VLA and invited my daughter and me for a behind the scene tour. Oh.… Continue
