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

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

Mothering From Afar

I can’t say that I’ve always seen eye to eye with departing Congresswoman Heather Wilson, but part of me has a soft spot for her. You see, we’re both members of a fairly small club – the club of Albuquerque mothers who commute by jet to work.

Long distance commuting wasn’t what I set out to do when I started down my career path. Like most people, I assumed that I’d get my education and then get a… Continue

Birds in the Hood

I originally wrote about sauntering into Fredrico's hair salon at Montgomery and Tramway with an outdated copy of Bon Appetit in my hand that had a picture of Candice Bergen on the last page and telling him to make my hair look like hers, much to the dismay of some guy on the other side of the universe, but I decided that posting pictures of the birds in the hood was infinitely more interesting. Maybe. Besides that, you can listen to my Christmas music (and yes, Marilyn Monroe singing… Continue

User-Driven Architecture, or Nob Hill Restaurant Gains National Recognition

Albuquerque architect

Howard Roark wouldn't be caught dead with people in his architectural photography. Roark, the heroic ego-centric protagonist of Ayn Rand's seminal work The Fountainhead, was the type of architect to climb to the top of his creation and stand with his chest proud against the wind. For him, the work was about the individuality and creativity of man. Detractors say his… Continue

Hunting Urban Wildlife

NOB HILL--I'm sure some of you think wildlife in Nob Hill and Albuquerque resides mostly in cigar bars. Not exactly so.

New ZipCar Member

Because our car was recently stolen - and we do not want to immediately replace it - we are dipping into the ZipCar pool.

We recently moved to Nob Hill, so we're a scant half-mile (at most) from where the 5 ZipCars are parked on the UNM campus. We just applied, should get our card in 3 - 7 days, and of course I'll be writing about the experience.

This foray into the ZipCar is to supplement our monthly bus passes, and so we can handle transportation situations which require… Continue
