Favorite Things Friday

Posted by on Oct 26, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s the last weekend before Halloween and I still have no idea what I want to be! Do I go for super scary or something original? As I contemplate the vast majority of options I have, Albuquerque has plenty of things planned for everyone this weekend as we prepare for our costume parties and trick-or-treaters:

Head out tonight and support some of our local teen bands and soloists at Roust the House Teen Performance Night at 7:30 p.m. at the Outpost Performance Space. From punk rock to classical to hip-hop, performers are bound to put on a good show and past Roust acts have even been known to go on to become Albuquerque mainstays like Ya Ya Boom Project and Lost Lingo. Tickets are only $3.

Make it a fright night from 7 to 10 p.m. at the New Mexico Museum and Natural History and Science for the Fright Night: Halloween Adult Night. Exclusively for those 18 and over, enjoy a live band, museum exhibits and discussions with museum curators. Make sure to dress in your best Halloween costume and you could win a one-year Museum Duet Membership. Cash bar available for those 21 and over and admission is $8.  

Celebrate the art of altered time perception cinematography  at the Chronos Film Festival at the Santa Ana Star Center tomorrow and Sunday. Emmy winner Bruce Logan, actor Phil Donlon, and Richard Soto will be conducting workshops and classes and a jam-packed schedule of screenings will be available for your entertainment.  In partnership with the NM Tri-Con Horror Fest you will be sure to get your pop culture and cinematography fix. The official celebration begins tonight at 8 p.m. for the Lost Boys Launch Party at the Inn of Rio Rancho.

This is the last weekend to hit all of the scariest, scream-your-pants-off haunted houses in Albuquerque. Don’t miss these popular houses everyone has been too scared to walk into again: The Haunted Scarecrow “Scream Factory” at 509 Cardenas Dr. SE; Dragons House of Horror on Southern Blvd.; Realm of Darkness Haunted House at Cottonwood Mall; and McCall’s Haunted Farm in Moriarty.

What are you dressing up as on Halloween?
