The Williams Tour Part 2 — Still in Old Mesilla


San Albino Basilica

On Monday I mentioned the dining venues in Old Mesilla.  Here is one such spot famous for its green chile cheeseburgers and green chili cheese wontons with pineapple jalapeño salsa, it’s called Pepper’s Cafe, which is co-located with the jointly owned Double Eagle steak house:

Speaking of the Double Eagle, this place is home to the 30-foot/9.1-meter hand-carved oak Imperial Bar.  This alone is worth the trip just to see it.

And then there are those magnificent buildings to see and experience:

Not to mention the individual architectural details (more of which I’ll highlight in this week’s Fun Photo Friday):

By the way, if you’re reading this and other material authored by me on The Destinary website, this post was not “Posted on (fill in the date) | By destinary” as they’ve been erroneously claiming; this material was in fact reposted.  The Destinary have also been claiming the right to do so, without links back to the original and without full attribution (“by RDoug” and a nonworking link is not proper attribution) with a rather bizarre interpretation of U.S. copyright law in which they claim I’m responsible for changing my RSS feed settings so that they cannot skim my material for commercial purposes.  That would make reading my blog less convenient for you, which I’m not willing to do.  As such, I’ll be running this little diatribe on all travel related posts until they cease and desist, along with this:

Final note:  Considering The Destinary is a site listed as owned by Sonia Bosquez-Platt of Indianapolis Tour & Travel, you may want to rethink doing business with her or her company.
