Cookie Crusaders

Cookie Crusaders

We may not be able to eat our way to equality, but maybe this Saturday, Sept. 19, we can eat delicious cookies until we purge internalized misogyny while learning about the huge inequality of the gender pay gap? Rude Boy Cookies (115 Harvard SE) and FemCity Abq (the local chapter of Femfessionals), which assists women with every stage of career development, are hosting a Cookie Crusader fundraiser from 5pm to 8pm. This event draws attention to the 23% disparity in pay between men and women by donating 23% of all proceeds to FemCity Abq to sponsor new members. READ MORE: FULL ARTICLE HERE AT...

Daily Lobo Food column: Five favorite food joints satisfy student cravings

By Steve “Mo” Fye      Published 09/24/14 1:00am | Updated 09/23/14 9:27pm   The Bricklight District, centered on the first block of Harvard Drive SE, has experienced revitalization in the last few years, and the past several months have given the UNM community even more reasons to visit.   One of the newer additions is Torpedo Dog, located in the seemingly cursed storefront at 115 Harvard Drive SE. A number of small Mexican eateries tried and failed at the location over the last several years, but owner Damian Montoya is looking for success with a novel treat. Torpedo Dogs are a clever, handheld food. The bun is a small baguette toasted from the inside on a heated spike. The bun is then filled with any one of several sauces including red chile mustard, green chile and cheese or chipotle barbecue, and the sausage is stuffed in.   Continued…   READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE...

Cookies and milk, “shaken, not stirred…”

As a young New Yorker who spent most of his free time dining out in Manhattan, I fondly remember David’s Cookies in the early 1980′s, the first eatery that marketed premium cookies exclusively in a boutique bakery that was all “the rage” for a couple of years. So it is with some fond memories that I checked out Rude Boy Cookies in Albuquerque, a premium “milk and cookie bar” that plays Ska and reggae music (it’s a Jamaican thing) and stays open until midnight on the weekends.

Nothing rude about offering cookies, milk

By Jessica Dyer / Of the Journal Holy snickerdoodles. Albuquerque’s new cookie shop and milk bar is here. Rude Boy Cookies opened last month at 115 Harvard SE, creating a whole new world of sweet snacking possibilities. Sit down at the University of New Mexico-area bake store to a fresh double-chocolate cookie and a glass of just-mixed raspberry milk. Pair a peanut butter cookie and caramel-cappuccino milk. Or … just get weird. “We had somebody the other day order a mint-raspberry milk,” says Rude Boy co-owner Michael Silva. “I wouldn’t do it, but whatever works for you.” Rude Boy sprung from Silva’s deep-seated love of cookies. Albuquerque has several shops devoted to doughnuts, ice cream and even cupcakes. He wanted to give cookie enthusiasts the same option. READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE AT...

ABQ Trolley Co. founder bakes up cookie business

By Dan Mayfield | Albuquerque Business First Mike Silva is a cookie guy. A cookies-and-milk guy. “Everybody has their go-to item, and I’m the guy that when I have a hankering, it’s for a really good cookie,” Silva said. “But Albuquerque didn’t have that good go-to cookie spot.” Silva’s new Rude Boy Cookies combines his love of cookies and milk and his “rude boy” attitude from years of playing in ska and reggae bands into one hip spot at 115 Harvard, near the University of New Mexico. Silva, who co-owns the ABQ Trolley Co., opened the new shop last week. His said his first big order was for CNM’s launch of the PNM Pop-Up Pavilion, which held its grand opening on Monday. Silva, though he loves cookies, admits he’s not much of a baker. He brought on CNM graduate Kristin Dowling to create the recipes and the cookies, as well as Eli Quinn, formerly of Flying Star, to help with the graphics. READ THE FULL ARTICLE HERE...
