  • Davy Jones' Peep Show


    OK. You've lost the spark. It's the last minute, and you need something quick that will give that ol' free-wheeling Valen-Times lovefest a jumpstart Don't panic. You've done the right thing by coming to me. While traveling in the East (Tramway), I met an initiate of the Aghori—definitively the most erotic of the Yogic mystical schools. This strange hermit, huddled in a corner under an overpass, told me a secret that I swore I'd only share in the pages of the Alibi.

    Here goes: When it comes to getting those amorous juices flowing, there's nothing quite as titillating as the mating dance of the sexy eel. Yes. And just as luck would have it, the ABQ BioPark Aquarium will be hosting a special adults-only event from 6-8pm on Valentine's Day—That's a Moray!a guided tour through the “erotic and often curious romantic rituals of aquatic animals.” Obviously, my mystic friend gets around.Show your special friend you still got a freak streak with a night of marine-based debauchery. Tickets are $30 per voyeur for the “Fish Love” tour, appetizers and one adult beverage. $45 gets you all that and dinner at the Shark Reef Cafe. (Joshua Lee)

  • Never Say Die

    What color is your casket going to be? Do you want your ashes spead in the ocean  or buried in a forest? Show up to the Albuquerque Death Cafe at French Funerals-Cremations and speak with others attempting “to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.” Not only can you make plans for when you stop raging and gently go into that good night, but you can do so in a safe, confidential and relaxed space where people won't think you're hideously morbid. Plus there will be cake and cookies! After all, in the words of the great Albus Dumbledore, "To the well-organized mind, death is but the next great adventure." (Renee Chavez)

    City on the Edge is a breezy, smart podcast looking at the stories from Albuquerque history that have often been overlooked. Each episode takes a deep dive into a topic like the 1955 crash of TWA flight 260, Sandia Man or the 1918 quarantine. Worthwhile listening that will spur your curiosity about things you didn’t even know about in the city where you live. It’s free and available wherever you get your podcasts. (Clarke Condé)

  • Baby, It's Bad Out There

    In the words of Dean Martin, “Baby, it's cold outside.” So lend a helping hand to the homeless folks in Burque by contributing to Astro-Zombies' 8th Annual Holiday Sleeping Bag Drive. Now through Saturday, Dec. 24, drop off new, adult-sized cold weather sleeping bags at the comic store to help local homeless people weather the winter cold. The bags will be distributed throughout the community on Christmas Eve. And for each bag you donate, you'll also be entered in a raffle to win awesome prizes from the likes of Masks Y Mas, Rude Boy Cookies, Archetype Dermigraphic Studio and more. After all, when told, “Baby, you'd freeze out there,” even Dean's lady asked him to lend her a coat. (Renée Chavez)
