Brother’s Day Celebration 2011

Saturday marked what we’re pretty sure was the Eighth Annual Observance of Brother’s Day, though it’s sadly only the third (after 2010 and 2009) to be documented on Alibi.com. The theme this year was fried foods. We powered up two deep fat fryers and kept them cranking all night long with two types of batter and every food thing known to man. From Oreos to oysters, sardines to sandwiches, pickles to pot stickers we fried it all. Everyone was forced to listen to the same four Lynyrd Skynyrd songs looped together for the entire evening, and we set off one (only one!) massive firework that was visible throughout Northern New Mexico. Until next year, Happy Brother’s Day to all my brothers.

Perhaps it’s a nod to the biblical boat’s function, stewarding the DNA of the animal kingdom to safe passage. But in the case of Noah’s namesake café, it’s the secrets of Cajun, Creole and New Orleans soul food that are guarded. Closely.

It’s Time to Eat the Doughnuts

Nothing beats the sugary fragrance of tender, fried dough. The doughnut is a pastry made to be eaten fresh—best with morning coffee or tea. I decided to seek out Albuquerque shops dedicated to the glazed, sprinkled, filled and frosted treats, and found only four independent shops competing with four Dunkin' Donuts and two Krispy Kreme locations.
