Instead of being a tequila-swilling, taco-binging ignoramus on this Cinco de Mayo, head over to the South Broadway Cultural Center from 6-8pm on Friday, May 5, for a fantastico fiesta featuring music, dance and history. Ballet Folklorico Fiesta Mexicana will show off their beautiful moves and colorful costumes, and Mariachi Buenaventura—New Mexico's super talented, first all-female mariachi band—will provide the tunes. A presentation on the historical origins of Cinco de Mayo will be presented by Teresa Carpy, the administrator of cultural affairs with the Consulado de México en Albuquerque. ¡Oralé! It's going to be a good time. (Renée Chavez)South Broadway Cultural CenterCinco de Mayo
- City on the Edge
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)
