View From a Hotel Window, 4/17/17: Santa Fe

Not quite pool season in Santa Fe, yet.

Tonight: I am at the Jean Cocteau Cinema in Santa Fe, having conversation with George RR Martin. As one does!

Tomorrow: Boulder, Colorado, at the Boulder bookstore. Really looking forward to that.

Hello world! I’m back on tour!

  1. Oh, they booked you into quite a nice place, John! Enjoy, and try not to be too weary to enjoy some of our excellent Santa Fe food.

    We’ll see you tonight at the Cocteau, looking forward to it.

  2. Excellent food in Santa Fe, John. I recommend either The Shed, or Cafe Pasqual for dinner. Both are near the plaza.

  3. My thoughts were similar – There’s great food there. You probably don’t have time, but it’s a great spot for photography.

  4. I LOVE Santa Fe! The people are fantastic and the food is amazing. If you can, I highly recommend Tomasita’s. The Blue Corn Chicken Enchiladas will blow your mind. Eat a sopapilla for me — no, wait, eat ALL the sopapillas for me!

  5. @solarbirdy: Santa Fe elevation approximately 7,200 feet above sea level. Still chilly there.

  6. RE: George RR Martin
    So tempting to ask you to ask George when the next Thrones book is coming out, presumably George would then counter by asking you about the next CE installment… so, um, any news?

  7. Karen that looks like Garrett’s Desert Inn pool, which is right downtown and has a bonus: The Santa Fe Bites restaurant is attached. Best green chile cheeseburger in Santa Fe.

  8. New T-shirt needed – “I met GRRM’s narrative and survived!”
    Have a great event. I’ve just realized I have baseball tickets the night you’re in San Diego, argh.

  9. You are making me miss the Southwest. I love Tex-Mex and New Mexico Mexican food, which are not the same things at all. Since April 12th I have driven through Ohio twice on my way from Baltimore to Chicago then Indiana and back.

  10. Thank you, John! That was a perfectly lovely evening with you and GRRM. You clearly enjoy swapping stories and sharing writerly wisdom with one another. And such ukelele talent!

    I am, however, disappointed to find out there’s no body of filk for the Old Man’s War universe. I’d have thought there would be a plethora of Kipling-esque soldier-themed numbers along the lines of “If you can keep your smart blood, when all around are losing theirs…”

  11. There’s a few suspicious lumps under that pool cover. Could be a dead body. Or a very large frog.

  12. Just remember…if you ask GRRM about how the book is going another Stark will die.

  13. The shoulder season is weird in the Intermountain West. We got snow last week and it’s pushing 80 now.
