This ancient Chinese art and science of gentle yet powerful movements is designed to improve overall vitality, strength, and balance, along with developing a sharper, calmer mind. Qigong builds energy without expending energy.”

Monday, April 29, 2013 – BREAKING NEWS (NO, REALLY!!!) – As submitted by Richard Beal, a local resident of the Eldorado/285 corridor It seems the Lamy RR Museum Board and the Legal Tender are no longer compatible in the same space. The restaurant needs more room. The LRRM doesn’t want them to have it. so….The Legal Tender is set to close May 31 according to the LRRM Board. There is a petition posted at the restaurant for all to sign to hopefully stop or at least delay this action. Please make a trip by the restaurant to support keeping it open!!! With all the great food and music of late, it would be a shame to lose it once again. by Richard Beal
