A Spicy Centennial

As we all know, New Mexico has been a state for a full century as of this year. But that's not the only hundred year birthday we should be celebrating. In a coincidence that's altogether too perfect for our green chile obsessed region, 2012 also marks the 100th anniversary of the Scoville scale.

Sábado Gigante ... muy Gigante

As New Mexico celebrates 100 years of being one of those 50 stars on the blue upright, the city is planning the largest party ever held in Albuquerque: Centennial Summerfest is from noon to 9:30 p.m. on a closed-off stretch of Central between Second and 10th Streets. Multiple pavilions (including an authentically constructed 19th century Territorial Village) representing the eras of New Mexico's history will offer musical entertainment and dancing. Plenty of food, vintage car shows and an arts market reflect the modern. Centennial Summerfest draws to a close at 8 p.m. with a headlining performance by Los Lobos at Civic Plaza. All events are free to the public. For an extensive schedule of events, visit abqsummerfest.com.

Shenanigans!

Centennial honk-a-thon

In case you were hiding under a rock (and wearing earplugs) you probably heard the cacophony of car horns that sounded off at 11:35 a.m. Celebrating 100 years of statehood, drivers throughout Albuquerque blared their horns. This groundbreaking piece of filmmaking has captured the significant historical event. What you are about to behold starts with a slow buzzing and rises to a teeming crescendo, capped off by a semi-truck tooting its horn. No word yet on the number of aggravated assault charges filed by victims of people who wondered why the hell they were being honked at.

Centennial License Plates

They've arrived. As of last week, you can demand the centennial license plate at the state's MVDs. The design was sold as "retro," because it's based on past plates. (Not to be all state-pridey, but I like it. What do you think?)
