I decided I needed to write about all my favorite fried side dishes. To say that the research for this story has been a joy is complete understatement! I love fried food. Of course, because fried food is not the healthiest, I have to say no to my cravings of crunchy, crispy, greasy goodness all too…Continue
After being together for 3 years, I am finally going to pop the question. I feel like my beautiful girlfriend deserves a beautiful ring. I don't want a run of the mill Zales type ring, but …Continue
Don't think I've ever seen this discussed on Duke City Fix before, but I was wondering where the nicest, cleanest public restrooms are. Are there any that are elegant? (for lack of a better word!) I know where a lot of gross restrooms are in ABQ, but the nice ones? Fill me in…Continue
Mala Maña. This is a group of women that tell stories through rhythm, percussion, and their strong voices.
From their website:
Albuquerque's own all-female voice and percussion ensemble, fusing contemporary and folkloric rhythms of the African diasporas. Much of our focus is in Latin American music; however, we encompass influences of all the…Continue

I know the Duke City Fix community loves to talk about food. Let's just settle the pizza debate once and for all. Farina has the best pizza in town. There, I've said it. I'm curious, what is your favorite pizza in Albuquerque?

This last Saturday evening I took a little drive with my mother to Old Town. We were curious about the Frida Festival, a celebration of Frida Kahlo that included a Frida lookalike contest.
Way back in…Continue
I was poking around Duke City Fix and found the group, Born in Burque and was thrilled to see the discussion about the…Continue
So who here in Duke City Fix land remembers The Philisteens? I remember seeing them only once back in college, but I know they were a pretty big deal!
Here is a bit of history about the band that I found on the website New Mexico's Band History:…Continue

What do you get when you cross Irish music with rockabilly and blues? You get the Quality Retreads! I love this band! Lead singer and banjo (sic) player Sean O'Connor is a dear old friend and while I'm still not sure why he switched from guitar to banjo, he makes it sound A-OK. Original tunes, covers of the Pogues and traditional Irish pub songs makes this band a…Continue

I recently bought a used guitar. I've been plunking around on it a little bit, and have taught myself a few things via YouTube videos. The problem I'm having is that the guitar needs some work. It's not a super fancy guitar but it is a Fender. I bought it on Craigslist from an old guy who said he's had it for years. Not only does it need some repairs, but I'd like to see if it's worth…Continue
After seeing legendary Bob Marley back up singer Marcia Griffiths in concert last night, I knew I had to feature a reggae band this morning! I first saw Native Roots at a show at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center several years ago. Lead singer Shkeme is a burst of positive vibrations and so…Continue

You are going to think I am crazy, but I'm pretty sure I just bought a haunted house! I've moved from the far northeast Heights to the North Valley. I've always wanted an old adobe and finally got a house that fits the bill. I live close to the river with wonderful lush vegetation around…Continue
