ABQ Expats: Sabina Zuniga Varela

I feel so blessed to know so many incredibly talented and strong women.  They are all so inspiring and I love seeing the paths they have all taken in life.  I met Sabina many years ago through my cousin, Soledad Hindi.  The first time I saw Sabina perform was in the Las Meganenas play,…

5things: Best Kept Secrets in ABQ

Not too long ago a friend was singing the praises of a little Chinese massage place that sounded too good to be true.  She had a one hour reflexology treatment for $15.  What?!  I had never heard of this place and was curious.  It got me thinking about other awesome places in town that might be little hidden…

ABQ Expat: Patricio Chavez

Social media, for me, has been both a curse and a blessing.  A curse because of all the wasted time spent on it.  A blessing because of all the interesting people I've met. Case in point, through a friend from my days at Sandia Prep, I "met" Patricio Chavez on Facebook. I knew that he was from Albuquerque, went to…

5things: Feeling arty

It's spring break and the time of year that I want to do a little spring cleaning.  As I start sorting piles of art supplies, I decided I need to purge a whole lot of stuff! I also realized that there aren't that many locally owned places in town to buy art or craft supplies.  Yes, you can shop at Hobby Lobby or…

ABQ Expat: Elizabeth Cohen

Everyone knows that I was born and raised in Albuquerque.  I did live in San Francisco in the 90s for a short while, but found my way back home to blue skies and the Sandia Mountains.  Will I ever leave the Duke City again?  Maybe, but for now I have planted deep roots in my little plot of land in the North…

5things: Best Margarita

I am not much of a drinker but when I do imbibe I’ll drink a beer or better yet, a margarita.  Way back in the day the Rio Grande Cantina was THE place to get a great margarita.  I also used to like the prickly pear margaritas at Ezra’s, but they are no more.

I have to admit, it’s been a while since I ordered…
