It’s Friday—and a really, really good Friday, at that. Why? Because there are some truly awesome things happening this weekend that we’ve been talking about here in the ATM offices all week long. Really, check it out:

The El Toro margarita at Nob Hill Bar and Grill. If this description doesn’t wet your whistle, nothing will: “Silver Tequila, St. Germain, fresh oranges, fresh lime and prickly pear pureé.” Ahh, refreshing.

It’s the first weekend of the Maize Maze! If you’ve never been lost in a labyrinth of corn, you just haven’t lived, we say. This year’s maze is seven acres of corn cut into the shape of a monarch butterfly!

The New Mexico Wine Festival in Bernalillo—it’s here! The over-21 set can sample their way through the state’s tastiest wines (plus score a free commemorative glass and buy some very cool crafts and New Mexican-made foods). But there’s plenty for the under-21 set to do, too—music, kids’ activities, and more.
Time-saving tips: buy your tickets online and take the Rail Runner there and back.


New Mexico’s CW is apparently recruiting for a viral video tomorrow. We’re fascinated—and intrigued.

This isn’t a weekend activity, but we’ve been “aww”-ing over this news all day (thus guaranteeing your weekend starts on the right foot): the Rio Grande Zoo’s new baby elephant. She’s wrinkly, adorable, and already 318 pounds.

What are you up to this weekend? What are some ABQ things that make you smile?
