Speaking of Albuquerque, NM, it turns out that old Native American petroglyphs aren’t the only attraction. In fact, I’d venture a guess that places like the Dog House draw far more tourists than old rocks. If you watch TV at all you might know what I’m talking about. And if you were a big fan of “Breaking Bad” (shown on AMC I think), then you absolutely know what I’m talking about.
Turns out that much of the show was filmed here, although you couldn’t have proved it by me. I never watched it. I heard about it and read about it, but never watched a single minute of it. I’m just not much of a fan of shows that feature drugs and violence. Especially when it seemed clear to me that the main character wasn’t likely to survive the whole thing. Surprise, surprise, he didn’t.
Anyway, this little restaurant appeared in a number of episodes. Drug deals, slimy characters, etc., etc. I didn’t know about any of this, of course, until we visited Albuquerque’s Historic District recently. While there we saw lots of small posters advertising “Breaking Bad” tours. Turns out that the Dog House is just outside the Historic District, so we went to take a look. Hence, the photograph.
By the way, if you decide to make like a tourist and visit the Dog House, bring cash. They don’t accept debit or credit cards.
