Favorite Things Friday

hottieBlame it on the holidays, blame it on the deadlines, blame it on the rain… t’s been awhile since we’ve done one of these, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been thinking about our favorite things around ABQ. Here are a few of the fun local things our office has been buzzing about:

Cocopotamus: heaven in a truffle. This gourmet chocolate shop (featured in Elle and Vogue) set up its sweet shop in Albuquerque last years. Lucky us: with flavors like Hottie (Mexican cinnamon and chile!), Godfather (Italian espresso!), and Ommm… (chai and orange!), we can continually indulge our inner (and outer) chocoholic.

Albuquerque is named the best city for moviemaking: very cool news (that we’ll be covering in more depth in the magazine soon, too!) about how the city has rocketed past New York, Toronto, Los Angeles, and other big-time film cities to become the nation’s best place for productions.

Our friend Alexis Kerschner compiled a super-awesome list of some Albuquerqueans’ music recommendations that you simply must check out. Your iPod will be stocked for months with good tunes, thanks to the suggestions of these music-minded folks.

Got any of your own ABQ favorites to add? Want to tell us about any great events going on this weekend? Comment away!
