Favorite Things Friday

Posted by on Aug 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

Fall is fast up on us! Soon we’ll be reaching for our scarves and jackets so here are a few activities that will help you celebrate the last few days of summer.

Rev those engines! Starting today at 10 a.m. and lasting through Sunday at 7 p.m. see and test ride the first of the 2013 Harley-Davidson motorcycles at the 2013 Model Open House at Thunderbird Harley-Davidson. Check out the new 110th anniversary gear and be the first to own a 2013 Harley. Also, take advantage of the opportunity to trade in and trade up. New models will be unveiled on Saturday at 1 p.m.

Lady in red? Oh, excuse me, gentleman in red? Grab your sauciest red dress, drink beer, and run for a good cause at Il Vicino Brewery on Saturday at noon. The $20 entry fee goes directly to Paws and Stripes, a local nonprofit that provide service dogs to wounded veterans. The Red Dress Run is sponsored by Hash House Harriers, the largest running club in the world but it generally refers to itself as a drinking club with a running problem. So pull up your skirts ladies and gentlemen, it’s going to be a wild run!

Switch from your red dress to an evening dress and attend the 2012 Maravilla Gala tomorrow night at the Hotel Albuquerque at 6 p.m. There will be a reception, dinner, live auction and dance. The gala will feature the work of Dale Chihuly and New Mexican glass artists Xavier Zamarripa, Donna Nova and Elodie Holmes. Proceeds benefit the National Hispanic Cultural Center Foundation.
