I loved that flip flop and sweats comment from the Spanish market seller. Hey, we resemble that remark!

Well you know, people that wear flip flops and sweats would never consider buying art. Wow!

Har.  Guess that Spanish Market vendor is just proving the Travel & Leisure readers right.  Santa Fe IS snobby. Wonder if she ever stopped to think that no, maybe Albq. buyers are just a little more discriminating and perhaps a little less gullible than Santa Fe tourists.

We'll see if that "authentic" Neapolitan pizza joint offers pizza al tonno...

Don't see it on their menu.

If they were smart, they would kick off the Spanish Market weekend with the Twinkle Light parade and hold it at Old Town...  (Geez, the artisans represent the last news story pretty well...) 

Also, the NE Heights made a much better trade already with Kmart going away (did anybody shop there?), and Farina coming in...

Nice one, Ramon! While a lot of that sounds really good, I don't exactly get a strong Naples vibe from the menu...

Shotsie, the article says the Kmart only had 19 employees. It's a huge space, so that seems like kind of a skeleton crew...certainly not enough to handle a lot of customers.

Harrumph.  No pizza al tonno?  Paf.  Of course, they probably think no one would eat it.  Maybe if I bring in my own can of tuna they'll make one for me.  The menu intrigues, though.  They come sort of close to pizza al tonno with that sushi pizza, but not quite.

Phil_O - there's probably more staff at the new Farina's - and I'm sure much better service... I've been to that Kmart a few times and it always took longer to check out than to find stuff to buy. 

Sears and Kmart have both been on a deathwatch ever since they got merged...

I feel so terrible for farmers (and, really, for us as a state).  I remember speaking to a farmer last year who lost all of their crops when they turned off the water in October.  I cannot even imagine what turning it off in July will do this year.  I'm definitely hoping for rain even more than I already was.
