FOOD
Empire Burritos and Santa Fe Peppers might remind you of a national chain, but the freshly prepared ingredients and chipotle-roasted chicken will wash any bad taste out of your mouth. Plus, fine French wine gets a hand from the Irish.
FILM & TV
The Rape of Europa is a mesmerizing, astonishing, highly emotional film about Adolf Hitler’s systematic campaign to steal and/or destroy Europe’s great works of art. And Dr. Seuss' Horton Hears a Who! may not be great, but at least it spares Jim Carrey from big, rubber ears.
ARTS/LIT
For the Greater Good at UNM Art Museum bears the fruits of America's greatest investment in the arts. Meanwhile, Tony Earley's new book, The Blue Star, is filled with humor and tenderness, but it's nothing like its predecessor.

Reward offered for the return of a stolen gravestone

Unfortunately, this is not a joke. On March 1st, a truck transporting a gravestone of a recently deceased elderly woman was stolen near Coors and I40. The truck was recovered at a separate location but the gravestone was not. The grandson of the deceased is offering a reasonable reward for the recovery of the gray granite headstone, no questions asked. It measures 20”x16”x10”, and features an image of roses and a cross on the upper right corner, and an image of a herd of sheep on the lower left corner, with the dates “1912-2015” centered at the bottom.

If you have any information, please come forward and help this family lay their loved one to rest. C'mon, people! Don't you think a centenarian deserves better?
