You Have Until January 19 to Secure Tickets for Alibi Fetish Events’ Carnal Carnevale on January 20
By Julian Adams Wolf
The Carnal Carnevale is just around the corner, and we can't wait to bare it all for you. It will be a night of adults-only fun in a secret, downtown Albuquerque location. So mask up, and get ready or a night of kinky fun amid the doors of perception.
As Weekly Alibi celebrates 25 years in ABQ, we’re shaking up our annual—and the original—Albuquerque Best Of contest with two rounds of voting. Vote early and often for your favorite Burque businesses, artists & more during BoB 2018 nominations. (You can renominate your faves daily to be sure they place on the final ballot.) Voting starts on Jan. 3 and ends Jan. 31. Vote local and support homegrown!
This is the year change came to Albuquerque. Sometimes that change came because of long-standing problems in the Duke City, other times, it came despite the issues and troubles that were seen in these parts in the year 2017.
Democrats demote Senator Michael Padilla from majority whip, Senator Howie Morales announces intrastate Network Neutrality legislation and Rio Rancho disagrees with state about Inspection of Public Records violation.
The looming $50 million deficit facing the city of Albuquerque is not an enigma and raises hackles because its existence points to a very bad job done by a group of politicians whose ideology ostensibly runs this nation, but has resoundingly been rejected at the local and state level.
Many of us began this year with newfound political energy and a burning question: “What can I do to help?” If you’re still asking that question now, then I have one potential answer for you: You can help feed hungry people in your community.
Step outside of the mundane and step into the Carnal Carnevale, an “adults-only” party brought to you by Alibi Fetish Events. Albuquerque, reward yourself for making it through the holiday season with tickets to the Carnal Carnevale; and if you act now, you can stuff those stockings with tickets at at discounted rate. You have until midnight, on Sunday, Dec. 17 to purchase tickets for the still-discounted price of $55. Prices go up after that, and no tickets will be available for purchase at the door. The location of this kink-and-cocktail-filled voyeur’s delight remains top secret, and will only be revealed only to our lucky few ticket holders.
