Only in Santa Fe

The days of the free lunch may be over, but if you happened to be on Canyon Road this week, you may have been able to grab some free art. A sign at the entrance to Canyon Road was beckoning drivers to make the detour, asking passers-by to ‘Please take my art.’ Once the turn was taken, a vast array of colorful paintings could be seen.

The sign asked for a donation, but there was no artist tending the store, nor was there a place to deposit the donation. I guess anyone that took a painting that wanted to give a donation, could simply donate to a cause of their own choosing.

As I drove home (without a painting), the very thought of this short interlude made me smile. Only in Santa Fe.

Drumroll please….

The results of the La Fonda Bike to Work Challenge are in. And the winner is…Armando Campos, a member of our hard-working kitchen crew. He squeaked by me in the home stretch and edged out my 21 days by just a single day. Armando peddled for 22 days in May. For his effort Armando gets the Ben Franklin for beating me as well as another $110 for the days he biked to La Fonda. Two others gave me a run for my money (literally) and tallied up 20 days and each took home $100. Several others rode their bikes occasionally and a number of employees walked. Many of our staff, including me, got outside, exercised, smelled the spring flowers and won a little spending money.
