Why is the week of Halloween always so busy?! I’ve been doing nothing but running from one side of town to the next. So, instead of my usual exposition-heavy pieces, here’s a bunch of local food bits for you to gnaw on while I take off to my next appointment.
Day of the Sad
This is Dia de los Takos’ last week in their current home at Albuquerque Indoor Karting. This has been a favorite for a long time, and while they’re not going away forever (they’ll be running their food truck at various Marble locations), a part of us is sad we can no longer stop in for a quick bite to eat.
Stop! Decorate and Listen!
On Oct. 30, there will be a Cookie Decorating Class at Indian Pueblo Cultural Center (2401 Twelfth Street NW) from 6pm-7:30pm. This collaborative event with Rude Boy Cookies will feature Rachel Moore giving a presentation about the IPCC, and then discussing the patterns and designs that you’ll use to decorate your six cookies. Additionally, part of the proceeds from this event support fundamental IPCC programming. Tickets are on sale now through holdmyticket.com for $45 each.
It’s with a heavy heart that we say farewell to our springtime friends at the Downtown Growers’ Market at Robinson Park for the year, as this weekend will be their last for 2019. Yes, they’ll be doing a three-week run at the Fusion Theatre for a winter market, but it’s just not the same. Thankfully, it’ll be jam packed from 8am to noon with a ton of activities, including live music, food and the pumpkin smash. And what is the pumpkin smash?
Ooooooh, yeah! Bring your pumpkins to the smashing ring and crush them! Become the tower of power, too sweet to be sour. Act funky like a monkey. Remember, the sky's the limit and space is the place! Give it a rear rocket, smash that pumpkin, ooooh, yeah! Turn your tools into crusher creators, too hot to handle, too cold to hold! The madness is running wild! Turn those pumpkins into the cream of the crop! Give them the Billy Corgan treatment while you do your grandstandin’ and hot doggin’, ooooooooh!
