Halloween DWI Checkpoint in Downtown Albuquerque This Saturday Night

Albuquerque Police want Halloween revelers to know that there will be a sobriety checkpoint somewhere in the Downtown area this Saturday night. Regulars and those living in the area can probably guess that APD will set up their checkpoint at either Central and Broadway or Coal and Broadway. No matter how many news outlets publish this information, APD will still bust some folks driving under the influence. So dress up in your sexy Donald Trump costume and hit the bars downtown, dance, see some music, but if you get too intoxicated to drive—and with the BAC limit at .08%, "too intoxicated" isn't hard to achieve—find another way to get home or to your booty call or dealer's house.

Have a safe Halloween by simply starting your night with a ride from one of Albuquerque's taxi services or, if you're under thirty, Uber. Unfortunately, AAA's Tipsy Tow service appears to have been discontinued in Albuquerque, but Albuquerque Cab does offer a free ride home (10pm-2am, Fri & Sat) through their Tavern Taxi service.

Tavern Taxi: (505)-999-1400

ABQ CAB: (505)-883-4888

Yellow/Checker Cab: (505)-247-8888

Green Cab: (505)-243-6800


The News You Missed

We scoop up what our competition won't touch

Once again, it's time for the Alibi's managing editor, me, to dig through the deluge of press releases that come flooding into our email account so I can bring you the stories that our competition isn't brave enough to cover!

Hi Ty, In January the Huffington Post boldly claimed that 2015 is the year of chickpea flour.

Holy shit, 2015 is the year of chickpea flour. And here I am scarfing down bagfuls of sorghum flour like an ignorant rube. Anyway, for those of you who are celebrating this important year, the author of the press release would like to direct your attention to this, the Chickpea Flour Cookbook.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The Purcell Tire and Service Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico, moved its location in September of 2015.

Didn't see that one in the pages of the Free Press, did you?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Trigger Electric Bull Horn

This horn man. This horn offers "maximum power in a compact, rugged, bright red package." This horn is loud, and you know it's loud, because Trigger Air Horn's slogan is "Go Loud or Go Home." And they certainly aren't going home. Why? Because THEY ARE GOING LOUD INSTEAD. SO LOUD.

Also, "they are so loud they are not for sale in North Dakota and Wyoming."

Check out their not-very-loud facebook page here. IF YOU CAN HANDLE IT!!!

This Is Making Your Herpes Recovery IMPOSSIBLE

First of all, this subject line is pretty presumptuous. But it's got nothing on the squirm-inducing body of the email, which can be nicely encapsulated in this quote from the release: "A recent scientific discovery now found how the virus can be 'flushed out' of his cranny."

No word on what the cranny-flushing scientific discovery is, or for that matter how we know that herpes is a he. There's a web link included, but I'm not going to post it here because I'm pretty sure that going there will give your computer herpes.

The News You Missed

Important information from the e-mail archive

Sad to say, we here at the Alibi aren’t omniscient. In fact, we can barely even keep up with the press releases that appear in our email inboxes, let alone the doings of all sources of knowledge and information in the universe.

Recently, we decided to stop trying to be omniscient. And then, right after that, we decided to stop trying to keep up with our email in-boxes.

BUT there are still some press releases that get sent to us which for whatever reason we can't fit into the print edition of the paper, but still might be interesting to our readers.

So, here it is, the inaugural roundup of The News You Missed, where the Alibi rescues important press release headlines from the dustbin history.

'Fave Vegan Powders' Award Winner 2015

This headline pretty much sums up why I am not a vegan. But if you're a vegan who loves powder, this is relevant to your interests!

Lead Safety Week is coming; Are you ready?

Are you Alibi readers aware of how to behave safely around lead?

Rule #1: Don't eat lead.

Rule #2: Don’t feed it to your baby.

Rule #3: Just leave lead alone. Because you may be tempted to eat it or feed it to your baby.

In conclusion, fuck lead.

Tailgating Story: Throw a Pizza on the Grill

Unfortunately, I can't find a website with this important press release on it, but rest assured that throwing a pizza on a grill is a thing you can do, and a publicist out there thinks it would make a great story.

And finally,

Guinness World Record Event Turned "Big Apple" into "Big Tomato”

Sorry, New York, but this happened and there’s nothing anybody can do about it now.

There it is, the News You Missed, gathered up into one convenient blog package so that you, our beloved readers, may now go about the rest of your life as a slightly more informed member of the public. You're welcome.

Check back next Friday for more News You Missed!
