NEWS/OPINION
An illegal immigrant stays afloat by selling homemade burritos. Plus, notice anything different about your paycheck?
MUSIC
The unusually instrumented jazz quartet Fantastic Merlins summons the freedom of a jazz combo and the daring of an avant-garde aggregation. And Marianne Dissard turns heartache into a cathartic Americana record with big gulps of French lyrics.
FOOD
Brave the inevitable bad breath and order a slice of garlicky, New York-style cheese pizza from Pete's of Brooklyn. And a a bouquet of fresh rosemary will drive you nuts for pecans.
FILM & TV
Che Part One chronicles Che Guevara’s all-star Socialist team-up with Fidel Castro to overthrow Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista. Part Two is more of a downer. And Adventureland jostles between bleak characters and childish boner jokes.
ARTS/LIT
The death row drama Coyote on a Fence avoids becoming polemic and instead focuses on human connection and dignity. And much of UNM's public art is hidden in plain sight.
