- Sunday Funday Labor Day Weekend Telethon
Somehow, telethons seem like a relic of a TV-centric time in American culture when there just wasn’t that much on. The cause was usually worthwhile, but the entertainment was often preachy, sappy or just plain bad. But The Box Performance and Improv Theatre are going for it with a live streaming telethon on Sunday, Sept. 6 from 1pm to 9pm that promises “games, music, comedy improv and more.” The cause is good (keeping The Box Performance and Improv Theatre open), and the entertainment will likely be better than you got from Jerry Lewis. So tune in for free via the links at cardboardplayhouse.org for some all-ages telethon fun and give till it hurts. (Clarke Condé)

A new installation by artist Nicola López, Haunted, opened at the Albuquerque Museum, sort of. The large-scale exhibit of collaged, printed and hand-drawn elements that fills the main wall in the entryway to the museum ironically examines the Southwestern landscape haunted by the inescapable presence of humans. On display until at least May 2021, Haunted will hopefully greet visitors soon and assuredly will have a virtual component available on the museum’s website in the coming weeks.

Even the ’rona can’t stop chile season! Clear some space out of your freezer and head down to Big Jim Farms in Los Ranchos to take part in the fourth annual Green Chile U-PICK. From 9am to 5pm every day through Oct. 31, families can enjoy great views and weather at this safe and socially distanced activity. Pick your own green chiles—organically grown on a nine-acre farm—and have them roasted on site. This year Big Jim has also planted other fruits and veggies for U-PICK at his farm, too. There will be an open-air farm market with pre-picked fruits and veggies for sale. Chile-lovers of all ages are invited to attend this free gathering. Chile pricing starts at $1.50 per pound.
