Dear Nob Hill Neighborhood Association,
As a local business owner and former Nob Hill resident, I strongly oppose the proposed ban of Albuquerque's diverse and burgeoning food truck industry from public parking areas. For example, in Austin, Denver and Los Angeles, all cities which are known for cultivating a supportive environment for local entrepreneurs, there exists a vibrant mobile eatery industry that employs thousands and brings in much needed tax revenue and consumer spending on a local level.
These mobile eateries promote and add value to the businesses of local breweries, local shopping stores and events, art galleries, and walk-friendly neighborhoods like Nob Hill, by providing catering-type food services these businesses are generally not able to provide due to lack of kitchens or funds. Indeed, the mobile food industry supports the local economy on all levels - many source local ingredients from farms and stores like Skarsgard Farms, purchase goods from local restaurant supply shops like Restaurant Supply on Candelaria, and offer gainful employment to local professionals by enabling them to start a dream business with less start-up costs.
Additionally, if you ban these mobile eateries from public parking areas, Nob Hill will lose a competitive edge in tourism with other cities of our size. I cannot fathom why the Nob Hill Neighborhood Association would not want to emulate the successes of the cities listed above by barring these trucks from adding value to the daily life of Nob Hill residents and visitors. If, instead, we nurture this industry in its' infancy and provide these small business owners with support and opportunities, we may one day boast of a vibrant brewery scene like Denver, or a famed food truck festival like LA or Austin. Albuquerque deserves to be among that list.

I won! I won! *dances around like an idiot*
Thanks so much to everyone that voted for me in the Best of Burque and thanks a ton to the Alibi for hunting down my blog to publish in the paper! I absolutely appreciate each and every one of you and I will try to continue to be just as awesome! :)
I did a great interview with the Santa Fe Metal Examiner about how metal influences my fashion design! You can check it out here: [link]
That's the first one I tried from Boiler Monkey, too! Deeeelicious.
I know about 6 years ago they did a painted horse project here where the city provided horses and artists painted them. I went to KY this time last year and the Equestrian Cup had stolen the idea and there were hundreds of horses in downtown Lexington, painted by various artists. Maybe this person participated in that project.
Well, we are about half the size of California. And we produce less movies than California, I'm sure. So...
Phaze just about killed me. :D
So has the fucking weather!
You're an idiot. Here in our state, even illegal immigrants can go get a driver's license or ID if they can show established residency of 6 months, it's not even hard. You want me to believe that Arizona police don't know that? I know that and I'm not a police officer. They're going to demand documents other than simple driver's licenses, and who's going to stop them from claiming it's a fake? There's tons of different editions of PR cards and visas and that gives them an excuse to detain. You're not even supposed to carry your immigration status documents with you, not unlike a social security card.
Is amazing news.
