Alibi Summer Guide

100 things to do before summer is over

There's an unfortunate sentiment perpetuated in Albuquerque that there's nothing to do in this town. Obviously, such a claim is baseless and only spouted by the lazy and uncreative (after all, the same idea's regurgitated in every Burgville, U.S.A.). But we here at the Alibi took it to heart. That's why we came up with 100 things that should be on your summer to-do list—to challenge those who would rather spend the next three months propped up on a couch nursing a bag of peanuts.

Go a whole day without changing out of your pajamas  . Slowly nurse beers all day long. Read magazines in the bathtub. Go ahead and eat a bowl of cereal in there, too—the sugary kind your mom never let you buy as a kid. You've earned it. Free.

Such a Thing as a Free Lunch ($0)

Do you ever wish boozing could make you smarter? Well, it probably can't, but the next best thing is the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz that happens three days a week throughout the city. Test your trivia knowledge at Burt's Tiki Lounge on Monday's, O'Niell's Pub on Wednesdays and Gecko's (Academy) on Thursdays. Free.

Show up at Gecko's Bar & Tapas in Nob Hill any Saturday night at 8 p.m. to catch up with the   poker ride  , a group of people who play poker via bicycle. Participants leave Gecko's between 8 and 8:30 p.m. Everyone pitches in $5. They ride out to Hidden Park, and the winner of last week's ride chooses the route from there. Five stops yield five cards for each rider. Whoever has the best hand at the end of the ride takes the pot. For more, contact
