We haven’t posted much lately because we’ve been so busy with our involvement in various community events, and of course we’ve been busy taking care of our clients! But we wanted to take some time to send shout-outs to the great folks we’ve been lucky enough to meet this summer.
In May, we attended the Red River Memorial Day Motorcycle Rally. We wanted to let New Mexico riders know that we’re here if they need us, and that we strongly support our community of bikers and their right to ride. We are corporate members of the New Mexico Motorcycle Rights Organization, and we strongly support efforts in our legislature to make our roads safer for motorcyclists. We’ve seen many, many cases of motorcyclists hurt by distracted, careless, reckless drivers, and we understand that motorcyclists are some of our best-trained, most careful users of our roads. So we wanted to get out to Red River and let folks know that we support NM Motorcyclists!
We want to send a huge thank you to Michael, Bobbie Jo, and the whole team at Resort Realty in Red River. These folks really went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable. We were able to hang out at the Hotel Ryland and get to know a lot of the bikers who hit the rally every year. We had a great time hanging out with these friendly folks!
We also want to send a huge shout out to Texas Reds Steakhouse. We were just down the road from this awesome restaurant and bar, and the staff there was just incredible, not to mention the amazing in-house music. We got to see Albuquerque natives Honeyhouse (aka Missing Mandy), and really cannot recommend trying to catch them highly enough if you have the chance. They are absolutely fabulous, and of course Eva and I love the girl power!
Then, in June, we got to attend the annual Running the L.A.W. (Ladies Annual Weekend) at Isleta Resort and Casino as Platinum Sponsors. This amazing event brings female bikers from all over the country together to share in a common love of the ride! We had an amazing time meeting the fabulous Toni TooFine, organizer of the ride, as well as the incredible Porche Taylor, editor of Black Girls Ride magazine! We were so happy to meet so many female riders from all over the United States, and to let them know that we’re here in New Mexico if they need us.
These ladies did an incredible job of organizing the event, and we want to thank everyone involved. We were also extremely impressed with the catering and facilities at Isleta. Everything we experienced, from brunch to the pool area, was top notch, and we appreciate the professionalism of everyone involved in pulling off a great weekend.
We have lots more events on the horizon, including the 2017 La Mosca Bicicleta, organized by Duke City Wheelmen. We are proud corporate sponsors of this fabulous event. We strongly support the Wheelmen in their mission to promote bicycle awareness and safety in New Mexico. More to come soon!Read More
Blazejewski & Hansen Law Firm is a Diamond Member of the Albuquerque Independent Business Association. We believe our city is unique, and we also believe that it is fundamentally important to support locally-owned businesses to keep our city and state vibrant, unique, and diverse.
Since we’re located downtown, we know firsthand how hard the ART project construction has been on many of our awesome homegrown businesses. So we’re making a special effort to visit at least one business affected by the ART construction every day. It’s a small thing, but if all of us make the same effort to choose to go out of our way to visit a business in Nob Hill or EDO during construction, we can make a real difference to the folks trying to weather the next few months of decreased business access.
Today, Eva and Heather stopped into Standard Diner located in EDO. Central is all torn up in both directions right out in front of the diner, but it’s really not that hard to get in and out on Arno, and it’s well worth the effort.
It was quiet when we arrived at about 2:30. We experienced excellent, friendly, and attentive service and really great food. We shared a plate of ahi tacos, some avocado deviled eggs, and a couple orders of (the truly incredible) buffalo cauliflower.
Standard offers happy hour deals and daily food specials. This was Heather’s first visit to Standard! But it definitely won’t be her last–Eva and Heather plan to make the diner one of their lunchtime mainstays. Standard Diner is located at 320 Central SE in East Downtown.
We know that restaurant reviews really don’t have anything to do with personal injury law, but we all have a responsibility to make this city better and to support each other when we can. So please brave the construction mess and visit Standard or another Central Ave business soon. We’ll be continuing to do so, and we’ll keep sending out our support on our blog and social media to these incredible places that make Albuquerque so special.Read More
We had a great time this morning at Century 21 Unica’s annual BARKING LOT SALE, benefiting Animal Humane of New Mexico. We saw lots of friendly faces and got the chance to chat with folks about our own local law practice, serving injured New Mexicans. We also took a short break to visit the fabulous folks at Humble Coffee. Thanks to Humble for powering our early Saturday morning!
We are a small, local business serving injured New Mexicans. As a woman-owned small business, we strongly support other local businesses and community organizations that work hard to make our city and state stronger, more interesting, and more diverse. We were happy to be a part of the Barking Lot Sale, and we appreciate Century 21 Unica Real Estate’s efforts benefiting Animal Humane New Mexico’s important work here in Albuquerque and throughout New Mexico. We encourage everyone to donate to Animal Humane, whether it’s time or money, and to adopt from Animal Humane or another local shelter when adding a pet to your family.Read More
We’d like to take a moment to send a special shoutout to Rebel Donut here in Albuquerque. Rebel Donut is a home-grown local business, and they make absolutely fabulous and artistic donuts at their Wyoming shop.
We recently asked Rebel to create custom donuts using the colors from our roadrunner logo, and they truly delivered. We were extremely excited when we picked up the final product.
As a local business that exclusively serves folks that have been injured in New Mexico, we truly appreciate the other local businesses in our community–like Rebel Donut–that work so hard to make Albuquerque the fun, unique, diverse city that it is. We strongly support New Mexican businesses, and we send our highest recommendation to Rebel Donut–top quality products and great service. Thanks again for making our marketing event more flavorful!
