  • Such Modern, So Luxury

    Sure, you've been on a Boeing 747 and maybe even an Airbus A380. But have you ever been on a Ford Tri-Motor 5-AT-B? I doubt it, seeing as they were the height of civilian passenger aircraft circa 1928. If you'd like to check out this luxurious relic, drive out to Double Eagle II Airport between April 6-9 from 8am-5pm. You can check out the “Tin Goose” for free or cough up $50 (kids) to $75 (adults) to actually take a ride. There will also be presentations and book-signing by Robert F. Kirk, author of Flying the Lindbergh Line: Then and Now. That will have you flyin' high. (Renée Chavez)

    Songkran—the Thai and Laotian New Year—is known as “the water splashing festival” because of the tradition of bathing idols of the Buddha as a purification ritual. Young celebrants also wash the hands of their elders as a sign of reverence and participate in water fights after a morning spent offering food and time to monks. You can celebrate Songkran this year by visiting Wat Buddhasothorn (the Buddhist Center of New Mexico) this Saturday and Sunday, April 8 and 9, starting at 10am. The festival is open to all ages and free to attend. (Joshua Lee)

  • Bleeding Hearts to the Rescue

    D.H. Lawrence said, “I never saw a wild thing sorry for itself.” Which is where humans come in: We're the emotional creatures who start blubbering as soon as we hear the opening strains of “Arms of an Angel” all because of that damn ASPCA commercial full of sad puppies. Ugh, I'm tearing up already. Ahem, anyway, instead of sobbing over manipulative ads, indulge your sympathetic tendencies by going to Wildlife Rescue Training for volunteers at the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park on Saturdays, April 1 and 8. For $25, you can learn how to help and care for the more than 2,000 wild things that are taken in by the Wildlife Rescue Center. Volunteers must be 13+ or 11-12-year-old helpers must have a parent present. Now stop crying and go do something useful. (Renée 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)
