Albuquerque Based, History and technology buff.
While the site has its problems, (no option for real open/close times, just time ranges), and like all public forum type spaces there are plenty of trolls and fake self reviews. But as a single resource (i use the above mentioned ones too), its a great tool for telling people about new or wonderful places. and finding the new places to try out.
Egypt, much like Antarctica is probably a great place to find space rocks, you can assume any rock siting ontop of ice or ontop of snow. didnt get there by natural erosion, so if you can count out animals or people, or rockslides from nearby hilltops, then it probably came from space! and is a nice bit of metal to work.
A cluster of us locals, have worked on documenting the Urban murals, and even some of the more artistic graffiti. [link]
alot of these photos are geotagged so folks can come see them (if they still exist)
"so put a plate or some other barrier on top of the scraps to keep air out and put the lid back on the bucket."
If you go to the thrift store and buy a sauce pot lid with a knob handle in the middle, you can loosen the screw flip the lid over, and re attach the knob,(like if you wanted to use it as a childplay knight shield) now you have a tamper/barrier that you can easily pickup!
Model pharmacy Lunch counter? *dammit i was beaten due to the requirement to give the post a subject!!*
I do very much love some of the skillet dishes they have, you put it quite well in describing both the Ambiance and the food! First time in i was totally unsure what kind of food i would get (thinking i might get a Wisconsin wheel of cheese and a wink from the farmer daughter), And after the first visit it was on my list of good local mom and pop's.
Warning their stack of pan CAKES! is also a bit frightening, a short stack (2) is about 4"tall and the size of a large dinner plate. (or basically one layer in a standard sizes birthday cake)
I spend alot of time trying to find the "New" out there in our high turnover restaurant town. But when you cant find the new, or you just want something known good, its always good to have a list.
For mornings, my list would look like
Mary & Titos
you will notice more than half are local diners.
Even if I only just now put 2 and two together, after reading your columns and articles quite often. And then only meeting you face to face for the first time last week.
If you pour as much of yourself into your future en-devours it will have no chance but to be fruitful.
Next on the chopping block, i hear the mayor will decide this month of the city/developer can knock down the historic house at Cornell and Silver.
Btw, i got some shots of the destruction at the aztec.
Caught them at the Press club a few weeks ago, quite enjoyed the whole set.
