Never say die to the folks behind the upcoming Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest. Like the Kingpin and his devoted protégé, Miguel Jaramillo and Jennie Rexer are on a quest, a quest to bring the Breaking Bad universe what it truly needs to thrive – and that is a place to convene, revel and rejoice in all the splendor that is Breaking Bad mania.
And unlike any old venue or setting that may house masses for weekend or week-long festivities, such as Star-trek conventions, or general comic festivals, the ALBUQUERQUE BREAKING BAD FAN FEST will take place in the home of Vince Gilligan’s masterpiece.
That’s right, the happy accident that led to Albuquerque becoming a “central character” in the show, leads all roads back to the ultimate Breaking Bad mecca – the only place in the world where tourists from all over the globe can regularly be seen snapping pics at the John B. Robert dam, sitting in a booth at Twisters, in front of Octopus Car Wash, in front of the “White House”, even touring around the city just like the stars!
Come November 2014 these “Baddies” and many more can make the most out of their fandom at the ultimate “on location” fan fest.
“We’re happy to announce plans for an Albuquerque Breaking Bad Fan Fest are moving forward! We were unable to reach our Kickstarter goal, but the Fest will go on! Please stay tuned for more info on this page and www.ABQBreakingBadFest.com. Save the date: November 7th & 8th, 2014!”

Breaking Bad and its fans are no stranger to fund raising for the greater good as the cast and crew were well known for around town, here, here, here and here.

Statewide, NM – FREE LABOR DAY WEEKEND CONCERT TOUR
The New Mexico Federation of Labor (NMFL) along with a collation of business and community groups presents THE SALT OF THE EARTH TOUR FREE – ALL AGES, SIX CITY TOUR this Labor Day Weekend.
Beginning in Southern New Mexico, in Las Cruces and in Truth or Consequences on Saturday August 31, the midpoint of the festivities will be held in Albuquerque and Corrales on Sunday September 1, with the full culmination of the traveling festival landing in Santa Fe on Monday September 2, ending in a finale blowout that night in Taos!
The six city, three-day event featuring performance art, poetry and music, will bring the true meaning of Labor Day to the people of New Mexico in a fun family environment.
Jon Hendry, President of NMFL said, “Many people think of Labor Day as just another three day holiday, but it’s our chance to celebrate working people and labor’s contribution to this country. We want to entertain and educate people.”
The Joe West Trio headlines “The Salt of the Earth Tour,” performing spirited renditions of classic workers’ songs important to labor history and tradition. Albuquerque’s Poet Laureate, Hakim Bellamy brings his exquisite style of social justice oriented lyrical poetry to new audiences on the tour. Local street performers of all styles and special musical guests will create a festive environment for all to enjoy. The seminal New Mexican Labor film, “Salt of the Earth” will screen at each tour stop. Local progressive groups will be present at each event to connect with each other and with new audiences about their work.
It’s time to “Rock” & talk while New Mexico talent and artists work to entertain and engage YOU!

Add in arts and treats from other locals (the Candy Lady, Rebel Donut, Gorilla Graphix, A Good Sign) and the evenings are sure to represent the 505 in style.
The Albuquerque Conference and Visitors Bureau is promoting and attending the events, as well. Mark your Tweets and status updates with this hashtag: #BrBaABQ. Please check out their Breaking Bad page: http://www.itsatrip.org/…

All day on Friday, April 26, any dog more than 1-year-old will be just $5. The price includes spay and neuter services, a microchip and registration.
Desiree Cawley, the director at the animal welfare department, told Action 7 News this is the first time they’ve offered anything like this. She said they are simply so overpopulated, they need to make more room.
Animal welfare reported more than 500 dogs in their shelters, more than they had at the same time last year. They said even though they’ve done commercials, put up posters and held event after event, they keep getting more and more dogs.
“We don’t know why it’s happening,” Cawley said.
Most of the dogs they have are strays. Some of them were surrendered by their owners.
Both the Eastside and Westside shelters will have extended hours on Friday. Cawley said they will be open 10:30 to 8 p.m. so that people at work still have an opportunity to come by.
