Our Chile Culture, Stolen!

A New York restaurant, Rafele, is hanging up ristras and growing their own green chile. Hashtag cultural appropriation! How dare they enjoy chiles in other places? It just makes me so mad!

High Finance, the 38-year-old restaurant located at the top of Sandia Peak, is closing. Don't freak, though. A sleeker, more modern restaurant is planned to open in its place in 2018.

Screw this news crap. It's almost Halloween. I just want to swallow sugary junk by the wheelbarrow-ful and toilet paper my editor's house (I'm coming for you, Chavez).

So, a homework assignment: Here are 13 easy-to-make spooky Halloween treats. I want them on my desk no later than 10am Monday morning. Dismissed!
