Welcome, Balloonist: Eat Like a Local

Fifty-two tasty dining options for visiting humans

By Jerry Cornelius [ Sat Oct 2 2010 8:06 AM ]

To me, the fluttering plastic banners all around town that say “Welcome Balloonist” (singular) conjure up an image of a solitary traveler arriving in his lonely airship. I mean, it just seems like a paucity of hospitality to welcome only one. Imagine the awkward situation of two balloonists showing up at the same time. Which is the welcomed balloonist and which the unwelcome? I suppose “Yankee Go Home” is singular too, so maybe I’ve got this all wrong.

For balloonists, Yankees, and out-of-town visitors of all kinds, our Chowtown Restaurant Guide offers a special hand-selected list of 52 local restaurants from Albuquerque, Santa Fe and parts in-between for your dining consideration. Full contact info, menus, maps and more are available for your iPhone, iPod, Android smart phone or any old web browser. Delicious!
