Former TWA Employee Talks Poetry

Biweekly and Monthly Shows

While weekly comedy events will keep you avoiding sleep and things you really should get done, you definitely don’t want to miss out on even more local biweekly and monthly shows. As I wrote in my previous comedy post, things are going on all the time in Albuquerque. Here are the less frequent but equally funny shows going on around town.


First Monday of every month, 10pm, Duncing in the Dark (Burt's Tiki Lounge, 313 Gold Ave SW)

Every other Wednesday (starting Jan. 13), 7pm, Mishmash Miscellany Assortment (MMA) Open Mic (Rio Bravo Brewing Company, 1912 2nd Street NW)

First Thursday of every month, 7:30pm, Carpe Diem Comedy (Imbibe, 3101 Central Ave NE)

Third Thursday of every month, 10pm, Third Thursday Comedy Contest (Tractor Brewing Company, 1800 4th Street NW)

Second Saturday of every month, 8pm, BlueByrd Comedy at Desert Rose Playhouse (Desert Rose Playhouse, 6921 Montgomery Blvd NE)

Second Saturday of every month, 10:30pm, #Microcomedy (Chama River Microbar, 106 2nd Street SW)

Not a Party Yet

Matanza has bountiful beers but issues with spices and prices

The rainbow of tap handles represent over a hundred beers from a seriously expansive lineup and the ideas behind the entrées are innovative, but can plated reality measure up?

Back On Top

Swiss Alps Bakery returns to peak

I stopped going to Swiss Alps Bakery about half a year ago when I noticed that the “variety” on display was just the same turnover folded differently and labeled with a new name. But recently I went there with my mother and brother expecting much the same and prepared to write a gritty critique, but I was very pleasantly surprised.
