Yesterday’s mini-snow was preceded by a peek at real N.M. spring—days of blissful warmth with little wind.

On such a day, fine folks gathered at Launchpad for a psychedelic picnic. There was much rejoicing. The place looked the best I’ve ever seen it, thanks to the handywork of Bee Bee the Clown, Marya Errin Jones and Tahnee Udero.

Dogs were provided by Chicago Dog. Olo Yogurt Studio arrived with frozen treats. Bee Bee created a candy buffet. Performances by Roo, Hyperland, Tall Boys and Tropical Girls inspired revelry.

Stay tuned for the next Alibi Group Hug event: The legendary Al Hurricane and ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano and El Pinto on Wednesday, April 18.
