Save Blue Mesa Review

With your knowledge of useless facts

The Blue Mesa Review, UNM’s literary journal that I happen to be an editor for, has fallen on hard times. Last year, for the first time since Rudolfo Anaya founded it in 1983, the magazine had its university supplied budget entirely eliminated and is now forced to fend for itself in order to survive.

This year’s Blue Mesa Review will be published exclusively online, but even that costs money. In order to gain the funds to do so, and to continue publishing new fiction, non-fiction and poetry in the future, the organization will be holding a fundraiser tonight at Blackbird Buvette. It’s a Geeks Who Drink trivia contest, with prizes and everything, and it looks like it’ll be a lot of fun.

Come on down, have a few beers, reveal to the world just how much you know about the Star Wars universe, and help keep this valuable literary institution alive.

Starts at 7 p.m. Cover is $5. All proceeds go to supporting Blue Mesa Review.

Twilight Gypsy Bazaar

Duke City Rep brings you fortune telling, treasures, Le Chat Lunatique.

Heritage House bed and breakfast
Heritage House bed and breakfast

The Heritage House bed and breakfast looks like strange good times are always happening inside its four walls. Equal parts warm cheer and old-time magic, it looms over the corner of High Street and Copper. It’s a fitting place for Duke City Repertory Theatre to hold its annual fundraiser, the Twilight Gypsy Bazaar. And who better to play the rollicking tunes than the boys of gypsy swing band Le Chat Lunatique?

During this mystical evening, a market full of treasures and trinkets will bedazzle you, a gypsy psychic will tell your future, and, if you want, a giant will wrestle you. (You should go just to check out that last part.)

More than 30 local businesses donated items to a silent auction, all of which you can bid on throughout the night. Get some great deals! You can have shopping, entertainment, spookinessand all for a good cause.

Your ticket price includes delectable food and drink and supports the fine work of the nonprofit Duke City Rep. The company’s mission:

“Duke City Repertory Theatre exists to serve the audience. We believe that theatre is a mutual experience between audience and actors. It is not merely witnessing or performing, but something shared and profound. DCRT is accountable to our patrons in providing topnotch, bold theatre that inspires and transforms. It is our aim to make this art accessible and compelling to not only the theatre community, but the entire community at large. Our theatre resides not in bricks and mortar, but in that which can be shared between human beings immersed in a created world.”

Tickets can be had by visiting dukecityrep.com or calling 505.797.7081.

In advance: $30 each, 2/$50

At the door: $35

We have no idea who did this. All the art is anonymous.

Plywood at the Harwood

Nearly 100 square feet of art on sale

The most common route an arts organization takes when it sets up a fundraiser is to indiscriminately shove 3,000 works into a gallery space.
