Let's Talk Turkey

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

Fall Hiking in New Mexico

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

To kill a mulberry... and dump its remains

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

New Mexico look and the Dukes!

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.…

Hedwig and The Angry Inch - LIVE!

Hey everyone,



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

Dear Reader: Farewell

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…

Frontier Owners Didn't Contribute to Prop 8

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

I'm coming home, baby!

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

Introducing Tim O'Leary





OK, so he is just a dog and a rescue dog on top of that, which is kinda the point here. One of my wonderful companions of many years finally passed on last month. Paca, (yep, she was a rescue dog too and carried the acronym for People's Anti-Cruelty Association as her name), had been a great friend for about 15 years. When she passed on last month my other dog, Daisy, became increasingly lonely and subdued. I think I did too. It was… Continue

Boycotting Cinemark/Century and Blake's Lotaburger for support of Prop8

The Cinemark CEO gave approx $10K to support the passage of Prop8. Cinemark owns nearly all the theaters in Albuquerque. I don't care. Until the company recognizes what they have done and corrects it, I will not patronize their theaters. Here is the statement I sent them on their form for contact.





Based on the news that the CEO of Cinemark has donated approximately $10,000 to support the passage of the discriminatory… Continue

Tribune??? Alive???

Not to say that the patient has a pulse, but E&P bloggers Fitz & Jen report that Friends of the Albuquerque Tribune are at work:

"It wants to make a real online news site complimented by the free-distribution paper, which they hope to make a bi-monthly," Fitz & Jen write. "In true NPR-ish fashion, they’ve started a…

Porcupines and our amazing universe.

Today is a very beautiful day here in the Duke City. The sun is shining and there is little to no wind ( for the time being). I came into the studio today and saw that another one of the artists here was here when I left last night and here again this morning. So I went to ask her in jest if she stayed the night here. She said no but something really bizarre happened last night. I inquired and she said she was returning from getting coffee at about 3 am and she heard footsteps behind her. She… Continue
