Skarsgard Farms (formerly Los Poblanos Organics) delivered turnips and beets to my front porch last week. Seeing these root vegetables side by side in my refrigerator gave me a hankering for Lebanese-style pickled turnips with beet juice. Since there was… Continue

My efforts to grow a year-round, organic vegetable garden on a fourth floor deck downtown continue -- aided at various points by curiosity, an apparent inclination toward tinkering and more than a handful of goat poop.

If you've been by the corner of Gold and 3rd downtown anytime since January, you've probably noticed the corner shop (formerly Ooh-Aah jewelry and before that Ruby Shoesday) undergoing some major changes.
A new French bistro - "P'tit Louis
" - is opening today after much anticipation. This is John Phinizy's first restaurant, and he's brought with him the brilliant… Continue

In the meantime, clusters of drummers and dancers spotted the parking lot's shady spots, practicing their moves and gulping down pre-parade breakfast burritos. And a miming duo in… Continue

What exists now isn't enough to draw in large scale groups. The feeling is that New Mexico has so much to offer, and we are already an attractive tourist destination, but we can't monopolize on this unless we create a… Continue
