Looking for bar fights to witness sounds exceptionally difficult, like chasing tornadoes or capturing lightning. I'm sure there are bars where you can predict a fight will break out with 100% certainty in the next year, but any given night, tends to be so bad for business that it couldn't stay open if it happened that frequently.

And it is NM's extreme liquor licensing market that probably ensures bar fights are far less likely to occur than the demographics would suggest. Losing your liquor license due to an alcohol-fueled knifing in most states is a boo-hoo-big-deal but in NM where they're trading like taxi medallions and the loss of one can be a financial hit of over a million dollars, puts all the bar owners on high alert.

Likewise, I'd expect bar fights to occur most frequently at tiny corner bars as opposed to huge megabars that can afford security. Our state's liquor licensing policy makes tiny corner bars few and far between, and an endangered species. The only ones that can exist are grandfathered in, really old and in small towns, and once they close, won't be recycled into a new bar.

This unfortunately doesn't make much of a dent in our state's big problem with alcohol-related violence. All it means is what would be bar fights ends up moving to parking lots and off premises.

It's been suggested by certain law enforcement agents that the state should enact a law where you can not sell an even number of people an odd number of beers. The number of people annually charged with murder for killing their buddy for taking the last beer is jaw-dropping, particularly in federal (Indian reservation) cases.

I think I'll just watch my Seahawk's games with Limearita's right here in the comfort of my Alamogordo home's living room! The above is downright scary.

Once Chico and the Man get likkered up enough, you're bound to see some brawling.

There used to be a lesbian bar on West Central in Albuquerque where knock-down fights were practically guaranteed, and so common that the other guests barely noticed them.

If I walked into a bar and didn't see a brawl, I'd leave. What fun is a quiet bar?

I grew up in Albuquerque, and I've seen bar fights there on multiple occasions.
