Soul Food in the High Desert

For the past six months, ever since I relocated to the Land of Enchantment in mid-August, I have taken every chance to regale my friends and relations back home with tales of the glorious food culture here in New Mexico.  It did not take long at all for green chile stew to become one of my go-to kitchen…

I met the Devil (Dave) on Second and Central

 

He dances like a one-man rave up and down the sidewalks in a manner that is anything but pedestrian.   I know you’ve seen him along Central, moving about like an imp casting spells to devilish music.  I mean no offense with this description because I’m sure this unique man would likely embrace… Continue

Strolling the Ditch

The word "ditch" isn't very exciting. "Acequia", however, is mysterious and tantalizing. It's like those Kahlua commercials that are giving the Most Interesting Man in the World a run for his money. With the last snap of cold weather and snow…

Lead and Coal January 2011 Update

 

Note:  I have nothing to do with this project, except that I am a home owner with a property that corners Coal.  Life is not fun right now....  in fact, the truck noises starting at 7am make me especially cranky as I work from home.  So I understand everyone's frustration.  Really.  But it will be over,…

La Cumbre Brewing

Albuquerque is turning into quite the brewing hot bed these days. A new entry has arrived on the scene: La Cumbre Brewing. The location is just a little bit hidden in a mostly industrial area on Girard just…

Wandering on White Mesa

You want to tell people about hiking on White Mesa. You want to describe what it looks like. You use words like "views," "panoramas," "vistas" and "pretty." You mention the natural springs bubbling out of mounds, the crackling layers of minerals and how the ground around the trails is actually alive. None of it does…

My Fitness Is Kicking

Keeping fit and healthy has always been a passion of mine but I really enjoy getting my workout by playing rather than just exercising. When I was younger gymnastics, softball and cheerleading kept me active and in great shape. As I grew older and had kids I slowed down a little but kept playing softball and started riding my bike all around town then I found soccer.



I love playing soccer and give it total credit for keeping me healthy, happy and in shape. But as much as I love the… Continue

I Lack Discipline, How 'Bout You?





I get inspired each and every week to do my regular DCF post. There's a certain oomph afforded me when reading the preceding day's post by Johnny Mango. His two part series on the Belen BNSF line and Harvey House were great. Not to mention his numerous posts about adventurous episodes with his grandson...



But then it all goes to hell. I have no finishing power. I probably won't even finish this post.… Continue

Glorious Smiling Spider

She's beautiful really. Her body is about the size of pinto bean, and her leg spread is easily bigger than a quarter. We've been watching her build her amazing web near the light just outside our back door. I think we have a new pet...

and here's shot with her web:…

Taco Obsession - North Valley Taco Heaven



Obsession of the taco variety.



This amazing family owned taqueria on 4th has saved us from hunger many times....we went nearly every day during our kitchen renovation...which also coincided with the world cup... so there was always a game on!



I find myself there late on weekend nights after a Belly-beat performance at Marble brewery for some late night noms....they are open until 1:00am on Friday and Saturday and… Continue

Santaquerque? Albufe?

Is it me, or is the space between our two fair cities shrinking? I'm not talking about open space. I'm talking about mental space -- the idea that the two cities are so easily physically connected that the lines between live/work/play merge.



For me, the Railrunner has done this. Proper or inproper subsidies aside (which belongs on somebody else's post), I've had several experiences lately facilitated by a quick ride up to Santa Fe on the… Continue

Movie-ville 'burque style



Not only is the Albuquerque Film Festival happening this month, things are also hoppin' and a boppin' at the Santa Fe Railroad's old Roundhouse in downtown Albuquerque. The entire place was bathed in movie set lights Friday night until the wee hours of the morning. A good bit of the South Broadway neighborhood was also lit up inadvertently. Somehow there was an absence of the usual… Continue

Does Poetry Matter in Burque? And How?

I love poetry. I love books. I love readings. I love the community of writers and I love the audiences who come out. Love, love, love: I gush and intend to... because I hold rather esoteric views about poetry. I believe that reading or writing or listening to line-broken verse can control pain (emotional or physical), heighten your sensory perceptions of the world, cultivate a respect for self and others, prevent crime and violations against… Continue

Getting Your ABQ Groupon On

*Disclaimer: It was just pointed out to me that Groupon advertises on this site. That shows you how much I pay attention to online ads. This is through our Google Ads connection, so it's all fed by Google, not through a direct deal with us. My post is my own personal views as a Groupon user and is not connected with any advertisements on DCF. I have no monetary interest in this.…

How to Lute a Sunday in 'Burque for a Jade Earful

Imagine you hear the sound of pearls falling on a carved jade plate. The sound is round and smooth, delicate, falls gently into the curves of your ear canals, stringing a beaded melody. Or you hear thousands of hoof-beats trampling moist forest floor, thudding, the breath of men and horses straining, spears lifted. Or you hear a hawk lighting on a pine, claws clasping, soft bend of a branch, drops of morning dew falling to earth.



Or perhaps… Continue

1st Annual – Route 66 Days and Nights in Nob Hill.

There's few things that make me happier than having a street festival a stone's throw from my casita in Nob Hill. The teasing rain gave way to a cool and gorgeous afternoon and evening, drawing out thousands of ABQ hipsters for summer music, great food, and fun. A few new stores hastened their grand openings to be included in the evening's festivities...

Great service made up for our new Malt Shop's… Continue

The ABQ Garden Revisited

Now that we're finally coming out of our unseasonably hot streak, I can wander back into the garden for more than just the minutes it takes to water to keep the poor plants alive. I have a lot of first year plants that went in in the spring. So far, I have lost one lavender, one straightneck squash and one cat nip. The loss of the cat nip was mainly due to the attentions of the neighborhood cats. They literally loved it to… Continue
