La Siringitu Vegetarian Café
Good food, no meat; good lord, let's eat
Vegetarian soul food? One of the nicest things about living in Albuquerque is the sheer variety of people, cultures and sweet, sweet grub. I had been hearing about the vegetarian soul food at La Siringitu for some time, so I decided to make a visit on a Sunday afternoon, just in time for their "gospel brunch."
Abode for the Holidays
Warning: Eleventh-hour shopping for the food-lover on your list may result in headaches, wallet hemorrhages and heartburn. Or, worse yet, gift certificates. Avoid "Mall Fever" this year with an inspirational trip to Abode. Located at 109 Amherst SE in Nob Hill, this smart little lifestyle store is packed with cool, classic and funky gift ideas fit for any domestic god or goddess. Visit the store Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Or call 255-1115 to see what's in store for you.
Get Out There
It’s summer in Burque and myriad patios await your presence. Snap the kids out of their bought air-and-video game trance for an outing that culminates in the joyful consumption of healthful and delicious paletas—no, really!—or invite some colleagues and comrades out to smash the swanky local rooftop bar scene with you. If you’re looking for a more pastoral vibe, get your farm-to-table on in Albuquerque’s resplendent North Valley. Here are a handful of our favorite patios in The Duke City. Don’t neglect to slather on some sunscreen and install a rideshare app (such as Uber, Lyft or zTrip) on your smartphone ... in case you over-hydrate.
