I stopped in Roswell in early '02, just after they were done consolidating all of the local museums into the big converted theater, which is owned by some of the very same former top Air Force brass that used to run Area 51. I ended up staying an extra day there was so much information to absorb. I still remember the Tex-Mex joint Chepo's, where I literally traded the shirt off my back with a waitress who did the same after a few cervezas. I guess the UFO thing peaked in the late 1990s and they consolidated all the memorabilia after the 50th anniversary of the "event".
