A Hot Singles Party Recap

Posted by on Oct 23, 2009 in Uncategorized


“Do I hear $800?”

With a little loosening of the tie, head basketball coach of the Albuquerque Thunderbirds—and 2009 Hot Single—Johnny Coffino, went for $800 in our live auction Friday night! With the help of 12 other brave Hot Singles, our auction raised over $4,000 for ARCA.

Every October, the hot, the single, and those who like to mingle, step out in their best for ATM’s Hot Singles Party. Did you go to the party? It makes for awesome peoplewatching, as men and women break out their hottest outfits, and gives readers the chance to meet people featured in the mag: the 2009 Hot Singles. This year, we had 31 of them, and most came to the party—it was a cool way of bringing the magazine to life.

This year, we featured photobooth pictures compliments of Complete Wedding Book (http://www.completeweddingbook.com). Personality really shows through after a few drinks and props, right? We’ll be linking to all the night’s pics on our homepage soon—you can just click and place an order for the ones you find especially fun.

Our Hot Singles Issue always makes us contemplate what dating is like in Albuquerque. What do you think?

Some people say Albuquerque can feel like a small city when it comes to dating, or think “I’ve already met everyone there is to meet”… are you optimistic about the singles in our vibrant city?
