The Daily Word in Mandela's death, bathroom surveillance and bad dirt

By Mark Lopez [ Fri Dec 6 2013 10:33 AM ]
The Daily Word

Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa, died yesterday at the age of 95.

It looks like Carrie Underwood struck gold (not really). Apparently, even though not everyone loved it, The Sound of Music was watched by many.

Over 100 people were left dead in Bangui, Central African Republic, due to political unrest between Muslim rebels and Christian citizens.

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has not been charged with rape.

Shaine Sherrill, who was shot by APD officers Sunday afternoon, did not have a gun. Apparently, Sherrill was suicidal and had said he wanted to be shot by police.

Just for future reference, when you use the wrong dirt … it might cause some setbacks.

Andrew Coppler faces up to nine years in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder for the death of his father.

A restaurant owner is facing some scrutiny for putting a surveillance camera in the men's bathroom. Yikes.

Bluegrass in the Shade With the Adobe Brothers

By August March [ Sat Nov 30 2013 9:00 AM ]

A most excellent thing to do this weekend would be visiting with and having a listen to the Adobe Brothers, one of Burque’s most listenable combos. This goal can be readily accomplished by trucking on over to Shade Tree Custom Cycles and Café (3411 Central NE) tonight. The freewheeling Nob Hill grub-and-tire joint hosts a performance by Jacoby, Moby, Pierogi and Toby Adobe, starting 'round 7pm. The Brothers describe their music as “international bluegrass” in Americana form. While that's certainly a decent description of their output, the chops on these four gentlemen relatives—plus the awesome musical cred they carry around in their gig bags—are well worth the attention of local music aficionados. With over 200 numbers in their repertoire, you're bound to find some twangy tunes to get you onto the dance floor. Shade Tree is just up the road a ways from the Guild and across the street from some joint called Flying Star. Jump on in, 'cause the bluegrass is just fine. Shade Tree Custom Cycles and Cafe • Sat Nov 30 • 7pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar

FemCity Connection Lunch

By Rebecca Gonzales [ Thu Oct 31 2013 4:00 PM ]

They say that good deals and great ideas happen over food, which is why a professional lunch can have many opportunities. FemCity Albuquerque will host author Jessica Eaves Mathews at a connection luncheon tomorrow at Savoy Bar and Grill (10601 Montgomery). At the event, Matthews will discuss her book, Wonder Women: How Western Women will Save the World, with the public and, true to the book’s mission, aims to empower and motivate local women. The book frankly discusses politics, the national debt and economic issues rooted in the customary approach to business. After a drawn out government shutdown and an only increasing national debt problem, maybe some practical local solutions and a change of mind would do the community a little good. The connection lunch begins at 11:30am. FemCity Albuquerque members can buy tickets for $45 and others can purchase them for $55. Tickets include an elegant lunch—complete with a glass of wine—and a raffle. For more information on the event or Femfessionals Albuquerque, visit femfessionals.com or FemCity Albuquerque's Facebook page. Savoy Bar and Grill • Fri Nov 1 • 11:30am • $45 for FemCity members, $55 for non-members • View on Alibi calendar

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #316: Alone in Egypt

By Brutus De Cervantes [ Wed Oct 9 2013 11:39 AM ]

I am alone in Egypt, riding in a cab driven by Gopardo. We are driving through a heavy snowstorm. The streets are icy and the winds are howling. We come to a stop sign and merge onto a highway with a 60 percent grade. The one-lane road climbs straight up the side of a huge, pink and orange sandstone mountain. We are soon above the storm and climbing in a line of other cars past high, billowing clouds bathed in sunset colors. I can feel we are beginning to slow down and I worry that if we slow to a stop we’ll start to slip backwards. I voice my complaint to Gopardo. We finally arrive on top in a small village. I see the Mayor and another city official fishing by the road over a cliff. They get their lines tangled together and in their struggle to get them free, they both slip off their perches and dangle in the air, clinging to their poles. Outside on firm ground, I want to go into the hotel and get a room, but looking down I see that I have bare feet. I hope that my dad was able to retrieve my stuff for me from my last hotel room. Looking down again, I see that I am now wearing my crocks. He must have been successful. I enter a small Greek restaurant and sit down at a picnic table with G and her dad. The menu, when opened, contains small packets of dates and almonds wrapped in clear plastic. I see my co-worker, M, sitting on the floor. I hand him a menu. He explains he can’t be bothered with such small orders. The owner woman emerges from the kitchen carrying a large, cloth-wrapped bundle for him containing wheels of cheese and giant rounds of bread filled with layers of butter and olives.

5th Annual Albuquerque International Festival

By Mark Lopez [ Fri Sep 27 2013 5:30 PM ]

The power of unity is enough to put a smile on anyone's face, or at least make them sigh with relief that confrontation was avoided. So it's no wonder that Albuquerque can bring people together to celebrate in a way that is not only befitting of the good time-loving Burqueños, but also something that brings a slice of the world right into our front yard, or in this case, Talin Market (88 Louisiana SE). The 5th Annual Albuquerque International Festival kicks off tomorrow, and the event will include such good treats and vibes, you'll wonder why people would leave the warmth of the desert and venture into the cold unknown. The event is free and will include everything from Native American rock to poetry, from ethnic food to jewelry and from karate demos to ribbon dancing. So spread the love and throw some international flavor into the local scene. Talin Market World Food Fare • Sat Sep 28 • 10am-5pm • FREE • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #314: The Kid Behind the Counter Blew Snot at Me

By Brutus De Cervantes [ Thu Sep 26 2013 1:52 PM ]

G and I embark on a freeway trip in separate vehicles. I lead the way in my gratified coupe. I stop at a roadside diner and go inside. The surly teen behind the counter blows snot at me through a straw, smirks and asks how he can help me. I jump over the counter and pick him up by his shirt, which is full of corn flakes. They crumble and crumbs rain out on the floor. I hock up a big loogie, but decide instead to just set him back down. As I do, he jumps up about four feet in the air. I turn to leave and start out toward my car. Outside, I see the old restaurant inspector leaning against the wall around back, so I head toward him. Just then ex-girlfriend, R, and her family arrive. We all say hello to each other, coolly, and they head inside. The inspector is younger now. He wears a sharkskin, velvet-lapeled suit jacket and he's smoking. I start to tell him about the incident inside. He interrupts me and asks if it was the girl who did it. I tell him yes, having now forgotten the facts.
