On Saturday, January 7th, the day after a really bad snowstorm that had Albuquerque frozen in it's tracks, a driver decided to give us a Drive- Thru we did not ask for.  A patch of ice that did not get maintained or melted away on Lomas street made a driver lose control of her vehicle.  It ended up shaking our whole building  like what we thought was a bomb and crashed and destroyed the facade of the restaurant.  Luckily no one was hurt, but interestingly enough, we were about to sit a table right next to the window but they decided to move seats.  The driver's insurance will only cover the minimum amount in New Mexico ($10k) but we have to split the costs to fix the city light as well.  That puts us about $5k short on rebuilding according to estimates we have recieved and the few days we closed that our employees lost wages that need to be compensated for as well.  We wish to use the funds to get rebuilding going until the insurance funds kick in which might be a few weeks.  Help us give Pasion a little more of a modern facelift and a facade that fits our dining experience.  In return we are also hosting a Taco Tuesday  pay what you want donation night on January 17th that will go toward the facelift as well.  Join us! And thank you in advance!

Hi Elvis. So sorry to hear about this. I want to echo Tenee's comments below. What is your landlord doing to help? Or do you own the building? Sending blessings for a speedy repair. See you soon!

This should come down to the responsibility of the building owner; not you. They should have an insurance policy on the site. I would really argue this with PNM and your landlord. Also, just because the driver had minimum coverage doesnt mean they dont have other assets you can go after to get this fixed. I have other locations if you were looking for a fully built out restaurant and this doesnt get fixed.

It's the insurance company that does the payout and the city's (or PNM's) pole is included in the damage so the minimum insurance the driver had is not enough to cover both losses

I don't understand why the city would force you to pay for a light that wasn't broken by your, your employees or patrons of the shop.
