Robot Dinosaurs: A Menace

Friday, Jan 20: Toughest Monster Trucks

They're billing it as a night of family fun: Bring out the kids to see the monster trucks! It's great family fun to spend the evening watching Bigfoot, Heavy Hitter, Snake Bite and all those other rascals making a scene and giving cheap thrills. But I know better. See, I've been fighting to get Megasaurus—a three story tall car-eating robot dinosaur—kicked off the tour for nigh on 10 years, and I know that where he treads, mayhem and destruction are sure to follow. Sure, it's all in good fun until a jet-flame-breathing monster with empty eyes decides to eat a family. It's only a matter of time, I said. But will the organizers of the Toughest Monster Truck Tour ever listen to me? Obviously not. They continue to sell tickets at an ungodly low price ($8-$26) and are apparently allowing people of all ages to come to the show this Friday and Saturday, Jan. 20 and 21, at the Santa Ana Star Center. I'll be there protesting when it starts at 7:30pm. Santa Ana Star Center, Rio Rancho • Fri Jan 20 • 7:30pm • $8-$26 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
