Restaurant Review

Paisano’s Pasta and Regional Italian Cuisine

Housemade pasta, presto lunch

I have a personal list of terrible food ideas. No. 3 is mixing orange and vanilla. I adore the sharp, citrus bite of orange as much as its sunny, sweet, pick-me-up flavor. I also love the warm, almost sensual scent and taste of vanilla (even though the vanilla perfume craze of the late ’90s almost killed it for me). But to mix the two seems not only unnecessary, but also a gross disrespect to the very different auras, like blending spring and autumn. If this isn’t dramatic enough for you, the taste of a Creamsicle, for me, is like licking asphalt and then licking the undercarriage of my car. Thanks, but I’ll pass.

Chowtown Restaurant Guide

A new school year is beginning at UNM, and that means an influx of freshman from all over. Hopefully those freshman are wise enough to pick up a copy of Weekly Alibi, because y’all could learn a few things in these pages. As you settle into your class schedules and your dorm rooms, make sure you scope out the University Heights neighborhood and all it has to offer as well—especially the many restaurants, bars and cafés that were put there mainly for your enjoyment, dear student. Whether you’re looking for a place to mainline coffee and study all day or just want a break from cafeteria food, there’s plenty on offer: O Ramen has a cheap student special curry plate and Winning Coffee, always a classic, is there for you when you need to organize a student union meeting. It’s really easy to get trapped on campus and to lose track of the outside world when you’re in college, so consider Weekly Alibi your guide on where to go, what to do and what to eat in the area. Welcome to Albuquerque, kid. Hope you like your chile hot.
