Christmas at the Palace 

Christmas at the Palace is one of the beloved December Events

Did you know Santa Fe has its own Palace? The Palace of the Governors that is, which distinguishes Santa Fe with the oldest continuously operating government building in the United States. On December 7, 2018, the annual celebration, Christmas at the Palace, takes place in the magical setting of this venerable historic compound on the Santa Fe Plaza from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

The Palace welcomes revelers to an old-fashioned holiday party that honors the holiday traditions of the Pueblo people and the Spanish settlers. Settle in with a cup of hot cider for the music and merriment of the evening. The History Museum and Palace will close at 3 p.m. to prepare for this event. Enter through the Palace at 105 W. Palace Ave. The History Museum will remain closed during the event.

Visitors are invited to join the candle-lit procession following the young couple around the Plaza as they seek shelter for the night. At the conclusion, everyone comes together at the Palace of the Governors for cookies and cider before heading back to their own beds for the night. Don’t forget to wear warm clothing! This time honored event takes place on December 9, 2018 at 5:30 pm.

One of Santa Fe’s most beloved December events, the Canyon Road Farolito Walk, lights up the hearts and souls of thousands who stroll the iconic road on Christmas Eve. While touring Christmas lights is a tradition everywhere, the experience is totally unique in Santa Fe. After all, how many towns commit hours of preparation to creating an awe-inspiring display for just one night? The annual walk leads you from the Santa Fe Plaza to the surrounding historic neighborhoods. This night is a truly magical and breathtaking experience you do not want to miss. The event takes place on December 24, 2018.

Construction Industry Booms in New Mexico

Construction industry booms in N.M.

With work underway on a Facebook data center in Los Lunas, a major rapid transit project in Albuquerque and hospitals and roads in Santa Fe, New Mexico’s construction industry is off to one of its best starts in years. If you are looking for a great construction company visit www.buildcomconstructionwa.com.au.

The number of construction jobs statewide in March hit 46,000 — the highest since the middle of 2009. The jump from February employment represents an increase of 3.4 percent, the best gain in the United States, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That’s nowhere near the peak for the state, which saw 60,000 industry jobs just before the recession in 2007-08, but March numbers are higher than the past few summers and the best in 90 months.

With the state budget facing spending cuts, it’s too early to tell whether the trend will be enough to offset shortfalls in areas such as retail or manufacturing, but preliminary data show construction is helping the city of Santa Fe’s bottom line. Construction-related payments from the gross receipts tax are up 11 percent in fiscal year 2017 compared with the same period in 2016 — that’s a boost of $780,000.

In the village of Los Lunas, construction is well underway on the new data storage center for Facebook. The work so far is dirt moving, trenching and utility extensions, but this summer the first building of a million square feet will start to take shape, said Ralph Mims, director of economic development for the village.

Over the next several years, the site will see anywhere from 200 to 1,000 construction workers a day. “If they go ahead and do all six buildings, we’re looking at nine years of construction,” Mims said.

In Santa Fe, the city is seeing ongoing work at the new Presbyterian Healthcare medical center in Las Soleras near Interstate 25 and Cerrillos Road, as well as an expansion of Christus St.Vincent Regional Medical Center on St. Michael’s Drive.

Both sites have large cranes, something not seen in Santa Fe since completion of the New Mexico Rail Runner tunnel at St. Francis Drive.

Another high-profile project is a retirement center north of N.M. 599 at the intersection of Avenida Aldea and Camino Botanica. Houston-based PinPoint Commercial is building The Legacy at Santa Fe with a total of 84 units offering a mix of limited assistance, traditional assisted living and memory care

The facility also will house a restaurant, a movie theater, a general store, a gym and a library. The company has other facilities in Texas, Florida and Georgia.

Another retirement complex along Caja del Rio Road in the unincorporated area was set to break ground this spring. The Place at Caja del Rio has been given full development approval by county commissioners with plans to complete it in phases over five years.

The initial phase will open in 2021 and, when completed, will have 180 units for independent living, 200 for assisted living, 120 skilled nursing beds and 80 units for memory care, according to information on file with Santa Fe County. The project is being developed by Cauwels & Stuve Construction of Albuquerque.

Closer to downtown, Vital Consulting Group is installing concrete beams and managing the slab jacking across St. Francis Drive for the new underpass of the city’s Acequia Trail. The entire project is expected to be complete by the end of September and has its own Facebook page — AcequiaTrailUnderpass.

The city also has started work replacing the narrow DeFouri Street bridge over the Santa Fe River. The $500,000 project will replace the span between West Alameda and Alto streets that was built in the late 1930s and reconstructed in 1959.

That work continues through the summer and will require some traffic detours around the work zone just west of downtown.

Homebuilding is also picking up in Santa Fe, said Kim Shanahan of the Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association. He said a project by the Pulte Group in Las Soleras is advancing quickly and will eventually have 300 homes. Pulte also recently purchased a tract of land for higher-end, single-family homes in Las Campanas, according to Shanahan.

Twilight Homes and Palo Duro are building new homes in Cielo Azul off Aga Fría Street near South Meadows Road. Also on the south side, the Santa Fe Housing Trust and Homewise have more affordable projects moving forward.

“We signed up 15 homes yesterday for the Parade of Homes,” Shanahan said of the annual new-home tour in which builders highlight their inventory. He expects if building continues at the current pace, the home tour will be bigger than last year.

In Albuquerque, the city’s newest hotel opens next week in Old Town. The Hotel Chaco by Heritage Hotels is 118 rooms and five stories with a price tag of $40 million.

Albuquerque is also in the middle of a bus and mass transit redevelopment project along Central Avenue known as ART — Albuquerque Rapid Transit. The $120 million project, a headache for drivers and businesses, will include new buses, but construction spending alone is $86 million, said Joanie Griffin, project spokeswoman.

“At any given time, there are 350 workers” on the project, she said. Many live in Albuquerque and can now work without having to travel, she added.

“Everything is local except for the buses. Obviously, we don’t have bus manufacturers here.”

BEST Burger in New Mexico

Bobcat_bite_640_426_85 

SANTA FE (KRQE) – It’s the stuff that causes furious debate. It’s even a state competition. Who cooks up the best green chile cheeseburger in the state? Yahoo has declared a winner as it went out to find the best burgers in all 50 states.

After the three months of researching, eating, and yes, fighting, Yahoo believes the best burger in New Mexico can be found at Santa Fe Bite in our capital city.

“It’s a great article. It’s always good to be recognized,” said John Eckre, owner of Santa Fe Bite.

Eckre previously owned Bobcat Bite and earned a reputation for mouth-watering burgers there.

“I’ve been doing it for 15 years now, so I should start getting good at it pretty quick,” he joked.

“We always do our best. We grind our meat fresh every day: whole boneless chuck and sirloin; it’s like ground steak,” he said.

Eckre set out to cook with the best ingredients he could find. But that’s not his only secret behind the kitchen door.

“We take our time with the burgers. We don’t hurry them and mash them down. We let them cool slow. That leaves you with a savory flavor that longer cooking gives you,” Eckre said. “I made my grills myself. I used to be a welder, so I built three cast iron grills that really do enhance the flavor of the burger. It makes a big difference,” he said.

Customers, whether first-time diners or longtime patrons, raved about their meals over their Friday lunch.

“When you order a medium, it’s just a perfect medium. The meat is very well made, and it’s juicy. It’s never dried out, and the vegetables are always fresh,” said Lewis Smith. “I’ve been coming here every other Friday,” he added.

A Huffington Post article also recognizing Santa Fe Bite is what led Sandy Usita of Rio Rancho to choose to dine here this particular Friday.

“I’m glad I had a chance to read the article because it’s great. I missed this for I don’t know how long,” Usita said. “I absolutely love a good burger. This is quality,” she said.

Shane Plossu developed his cravings back at Bobcat Bite and visits Santa Fe Bite when he returns to Santa Fe. “It’s just a real treat for me to do that. Get a green chile fix everytime I come back home,” he said.

“The Bite is really the best burger I’ve had. I’ve traveled a lot myself as well, tried lots of burgers and to me the green chile cheeseburger is just the one,” Plossu said.

In its review, Yahoo said, “The chuck and sirloin beef mix complements the smoky heat of the chiles, and makes you wish more people from other states would start putting green chiles on everything.”

But was there a runner-up in New Mexico?

Yahoo began its burger choice for the Land of Enchantment by saying, “With apologies to the delicious burgers at Manny’s Buckhorn Tavern in San Antonio, we had to go with Santa Fe Bite’s green chile cheeseburger.”

Santa Fe Bite is located at 311 Old Santa Fe Trail.
