From hoops to a mid-week show, here’s what’s happening in the Albuquerque this week.
CIVICS REFRESHER: The Albuquerque city council will discuss a proposal to replace the Transit Department’s current “zero fare” bus service. The iteration now up for vote appropriates more money for transit security and postpones a decision on whether to continue with zero fares until later this year. The meeting begins at 5 p.m. Monday.
STORYTIME: The Albuquerque Public Library is holding a Family Storytime event geared toward preschool- and kindergarten-age children on Tuesday at the Alamosa Library near the South Valley. The event will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. Families can attend and “enjoy stories and songs while developing early literacy,” according to the library’s website.
WATCH THE LOBOS: It’s a wolf-versus-wolf matchup this week at the Pit. The University of New Mexico Lobos men’s basketball team is playing the Nevada Wolf Pack on Tuesday at 8:30 p.m.
The Lobos have a 19-5 record this season, while the Wolf Pack stands at 18-6.
GET DOWN TO BUSINESS: The City of Albuquerque’s Office of Black Community Engagement, the New Mexico Economic Development Department’s Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Office and a group of local organizations are hosting the first Black Business Summit Tuesday and Wednesday at the Albuquerque Convention Center. Tickets are free for those looking to attend in-person as well as virtually. See more Black History Month events in Albuquerque.
