Green Chile Cheeseburger Winner Announced

Finally, the moment we've all been waiting for: The 2016 New Mexico State Fair Green Chile Cheeseburger Challenge has been won. First place goes to Laguna Burger, with runners-up Starr Brothers and Pasion Latin Fusion. Eat your heart out.

Incidentally, voting in the Alibi’s own foodie challenge, the 2016 Best of Burque Restaurants, is in its final week. (We got a Best Green Chile Cheeseburger over there too!)

I'm too lazy to drive, but I want to eat healthy (to compliment my sedentary lifestyle, of course). Whatever shall I do? Enter: Skarsgard Farms' online, same-day produce delivery service.

Zio's Restaurant Company just filed for bankruptcy and is closing five locations—including the one in ABQ, which is a real shame, considering I didn't even know we had one in ABQ until five minutes ago. Godammit! I'm having one hell of a week.

Just type “black olives matter” into Google news search for the last week and listen to the crickets chirp. And I was just getting used to feeling outraged.

Buzzfeed says the best tacos in N.M. come from El Paisa Taqueria. The same place I just reviewed a couple weeks back. In your face, Buzzfeed! Get with the times!

Want to know what wines and beer go best with your chile? Ask an expert. And they don't get any more expert than Professor Stuart Munson-McGee, a faculty member in the NMSU College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences Family and Consumer Sciences Department. Those words, when added up, equal a smart person.
