Networks add scads of shows to fall season
Last week, we took a glimpse at all the shows the networks were tossing away at the end of this season. So let’s look over all they’ll be adding in the fall.
Exploring the secrets of Banh Mi Coda
Banh Mi Coda, a Vietnamese sandwich shop, deli and tofu house across the parking lot from Talin Market, is what you'd expect to find in a big-city Asian district.

That’s bad news for a lot of folks in Hollywood who got a mess of pink slips last week telling them that their prime time meal tickets had been canceled.
Songs in the key of booze
Market season brings smoothies
Farmers market season is upon us. Several have already opened for the year, with the big one, the Albuquerque Downtown Growers Market, kicking off on May 18. This is the time of year when we’re reminded of the magic that can happen when rare drops of water are mixed with our abundant New Mexico sunshine. Enjoy the resulting green while it lasts.
