Restaurant Review

Carolina’s

That’s new Mexican, not New Mexican

California-style Mexican means more shredded cabbage, white cheese and guacamole, and less grease.

Chowtown Restaurant Guide

A new school year is beginning at UNM, and that means an influx of freshman from all over. Hopefully those freshman are wise enough to pick up a copy of Weekly Alibi, because y’all could learn a few things in these pages. As you settle into your class schedules and your dorm rooms, make sure you scope out the University Heights neighborhood and all it has to offer as well—especially the many restaurants, bars and cafés that were put there mainly for your enjoyment, dear student. Whether you’re looking for a place to mainline coffee and study all day or just want a break from cafeteria food, there’s plenty on offer: O Ramen has a cheap student special curry plate and Winning Coffee, always a classic, is there for you when you need to organize a student union meeting. It’s really easy to get trapped on campus and to lose track of the outside world when you’re in college, so consider Weekly Alibi your guide on where to go, what to do and what to eat in the area. Welcome to Albuquerque, kid. Hope you like your chile hot.
