    Delighted you’re coming! Are you ready for the personally escorted culinary tour of northern New Mexico indigenous eateries? Are you ready for….Manny’s strawberry pancakes??? Are you ready for….the chicken fried steak and coffee mocha milkshake at the Route 66 Diner??? The bar was set at Caplansky’s. Let’s see what we can do about that. (Bring Stagg to help vacuum up the leftovers.)

    Oh Stagg will be there! For real. Looking forward to the tour! If my precis gets accepted of course, pending.

    We hope to also have a booth there with his art work.

    Which reminds me one of the other attractions are all the books and vendors on display and for sale.

    Do you want to share a table/booth with Stagg for the bookstore? That would be epic! LOL

    we plan going to se Lee again too!
