Anyone going to Santa Fe?

Is anyone out there going to the Fiesta de Santa Fe rally
in Sept? It will be my first rally and I sure would like to see
some of you . I hope I'm not the only vintage unit
there. I spoke to the organizer and he was very nice.
I'm a little leery after so many negative comments.
Hope that we'll be welcome.

Heidi

Sante Fe,

Or as some of the local say Fante se. Certainly one of my favorite cities and Fall is the perfect time of the year to go . If you site see go to the Santuario de Chimayo beautiful chapel and nice drive getting there and a good restaurant also near by , I believe it is called Leona's .

Not going but I wish my wife and I were . So much to see and do don't miss a walk up canyon dr. and enjoy the food it is terrific , you don't have to pay a fortune for food there are many good resonable restaurants just do a little foot work/ check a Zagat's.

Have fun and please write a note when you return.

The best sitdown restaurant in Chimayo is Rancho de Chimayo. Oops, there may be a Leona's nearby - never been there.

We live in Santa Fe so if anyone needs any restaurant tips, let me know...

Here are some starters:

name/relative cost/my personal rating

Geronimo/$$$$$/1 By far the best in town and probably one of the tops in the USA. On Canyon Road. Dress nice and bring your extra spending money. A good quality Margarita is $15 or more. Splurge. Service is as good as it gets.
The Compound/$$$$$/4 - On Canyon Road.
The Canyon/$$$$/3 - On Canyon Road
Santacafe/$$$$/2 - Just always great. Sit outside. 2 blocks off the plaza.
Ristra/$$$$/? - On Agua Fria behind Sanbrusco
El Farol/$$/? Tapas - on Canyon Road
Maria's/$/5 - Best margaritas in town - on Cordova Road
Pink Adobe/$$/6 - have the apple pie for desert. You won't be sorry.
Tomasitas/$/? Family style New Mexican - on Guadalupe. Not my favorite at all but appears to be everyone else's...

Santa Fe is a dining mecca with over 250 restaurants. You will surely enjoy your stay here.

Don't forget my favorite...Cafe Pasqual's located across the street from the Old Saint Francis Hotel, on the corner of Water Street & Don Gaspar a couple of blocks off the Plaza...Mmmmm!

No offense, but sorry to report from our numerous experiences, Cafe Pasqual's is bad food and bad service, IMHO. We could never figure out why Cafe Pasqual's is on anyone's list of restaurants. Tried it three times for dinner, twice for breakfast, and once for lunch over a period of three years (gasp!). Always a letdown. Attitude of owner and wait staff is arrogant and they can be nasty to patrons. They clearly dislike their jobs. And, the restaurant is expensive to boot. If you are truly a masochist, Cafe Pasqual's is for you...

For a quick, delicious, and inexpensive lunch, walk right past Cafe Pasqual's and stop at the Atomic Grill . Your dog is welcome to sit outside with you.

On the off chance that someone from New Orleans might not necessarily be driving to Sante Fe just for the food, I will suggest you take a drive up toward Los Alamos to see the Tsankawi pueblo, in Bandelier Narional Forest. This is actually the remains of a pueblo, abandoned 500 years ago or so. Very interesting, and the hike need not be strenuous if you take your time.

Shari,

Of course, no offense to your observation. The beauty of AMERICA is that we can all have opinions!

You ever tried Geronimo?

We're still on schedule to leave Sat AM!!
Thanks for all the great suggestions. We're definately not going for the food although we sure have to eat!
Anything we must see? Any advice for crossing Texas?
I hear its a rough ride.
