Don’t worry, it’s all for the fun and love of zombies. These zombies moan and groan for brain and flesh, but don’t actually satiate their gory appetites.
The walk starts at about 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 25, at downtown El Paso’s San Jacinto Plaza. Where the zombies will travel is anyone’s guess, but it’s sure to be weird and fun.
This is great news for a city known for its apathetic voters. Obviously, the presidential race is the main reason many voters are flocking to their polling sites, but how many of you know about the more than 10 other local races? (That doesn’t even include the small school-district races.)
The event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required, but campaign officials are asking people to RSVP online at www.nm.barackobama.com.
Obama campaign offices in Las Cruces, Anthony, Deming and Alamogordo will be handing out a limited number of “preferred viewing tickets” on a first-come, first-served basis from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday.
You can get a first look at the 2008-09 UTEP Miner men’s and women’s basketball teams at “Miner Madness” on Saturday, Oct. 18, at the Don Haskins Center.
The event is free!
The festivities start at 1 p.m. with free food at the tailgating party hosted by local bar Three-Legged Monkey.
Bats can be seen taking flight just before the sun sets throughout El Paso until mid-October or early November. Currently, the bats are migrating to Mexico for the winter.
Each year during the summer months, and as the bats migrate, El Pasoans report finding bats in or near their homes or businesses. The bats don’t usually attack people, but if you find one, don’t touch it. It might have rabies.
On Sunday, the local winery will host the final Music on the Patio of the year from 1 to 5 p.m.
For the last several years a group of us have headed out to La Viña with a picnic basket, a blanket and board games to enjoy the outdoors and live music.
Admission is free, but you have to purchase beverages from the winery. If you go I recommend the Cote de Bravo or the Rojo Loco.
La Viña is located at 4201 S. Highway 28 in La Union, N.M. It's a good opportunity to get out of the stuffy indoors and appreciate the region’s wine country.
Speed Dating: Centennial Style!
I’m not on the market, but I found the item intriguing because single friends gave me the impression that speed dating in El Paso was a bust. However, Fort Bliss does indeed offer speed dating for singles 35 and older at the Centennial Club on Biggs Army Airfield. The fast-paced dates begin at 7 p.m. on the second Friday of every month, beginning Oct. 10.
I'm not alone, which is probably why the organizers of the KLAQ Haunted House have selected "Twisted Circus" as the theme of this year's haunted house.I normally avoid these kinds of things because I'll pass out before I scream. But if you love the thrill of being chased by a chainsaw-toting maniac consider going to the "Twisted Circus."
The haunted house is located at the corner of Lee Trevino and I-10 West. It's open from 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday - Wednesday, and 6 p.m. to midnight Thursday - Saturday. Tickets are $10.Are you brave enough?
