Holy Cow!  It's Open!

EDo's newest restaurant is now serving at Central Avenue and High Street. The brainchild of architect/contractor Michael Wewerka and his operating partners David Boyd and Chris Medina, Holy Cow features casual food, atmosphere, and prices with fine dining tastes.
     Dine outdoors in the landscaped and covered patios, or indoors in the mid-century modern retrofit of a former 1950s drive-in.
     "We're especially pleased to have converted former car ports to people ports" says Wewerka of the new outdoor patios.
     Heard on Central Avenue today:  "Best burger I've ever eaten."  Your editor reports tasty salads and reasonably priced beer & wine as well.
     Please join us in welcoming them to EDo, and please check them out soon!
The Daily Market - Information Meeting Next Thursday

The creators of The Daily Market, a proposed full-service grocery store at 710 Central SE, are hosting an informational meeting for potential investors in the store. 
     The meeting will be Thursday, August 4th from 6:00-7:00 PM at Holy Cow Restaurant, 700 Central SE.
      The store will be locally-owned and locally-managed. Investment minimum is anticipated to be $10,000. This is not a formal offer to invest, merely an informational meeting as we put together our ownership and management teams.

Revelry Salon in Elle's Top 100

Elle Magazine recently named Revelry Salon at 300 Broadway NE in EDo as one of America's Top 100 Salons.  Anna Rogers is the proprietor and top stylist. 
     Revelry will also be featured in the August issue of ABQ the Magazine. 
     Congratulations to Anna and her team!  You can reach Revelry at 842-8980. 
Hotel Parq Central Awarded Four Diamond Rating

EDo's own Hotel Parq Central was awarded a Four Diamond rating by AAA, one of only 10 hotels in New Mexico to have this coveted recognition. 
     Owners David Oberstein and Marc Bertram opened in October 2010 with GM Yancy Sturgeon and his team. 
     "We are honored to join this very small and elite group of hotels in New Mexico. We knew we had a truly special property when we achieved the top placement on the popular Trip Advisor website after only 2 months, and we have remained on top since," says Bertram.  "It is quite an accomplishment for all of our employees," says Oberstein. 
     Congratulations HPC!
Library Volunteers Needed

The City's Special Collection Library at 423 Central SE is soon to re-open after a substantial renovation. We are all very excited to see it again! 
     Library officials have expressed a willingness to make this library a book lending and return facility, using their computerized book database. But, they will need some volunteer help from our neighborhood.
     Want to get in touch with your inner librarian, and be of service to your neighborhood?  Please click here, and we will let the City Librarian know of your interest.  Thank you.
Tiffany Exhibit at Albuquerque Museum

We highly recommend a visit  to see The New York Historical Society's "Clara Driscoll and the Tiffany Girls" at the Albuquerque Museum in Old Town through August 21st.
     It's both an incredible display of artistry and a deeply memorable glance back to late 1800s and early 1900s New York City. 
     Support your local art museum and don't miss it!
