Favorite Things Friday

Posted by on Mar 26, 2010 in Uncategorized

Okay, I admit it. There’s some “TGIF” running rampant over here today. To make the most of it, we wanted to fill you in on some of our the things—in and around Albuquerque—that we’ve been talking about this week.

Pork and Brew: This weekend, you can pig out (pun fully intended) on an unbelievable amount of BBQ and beer at Santa Ana Star Center. The weekend also includes “live entertainment, chain saw carving, fun jumps, pig races, food galore and monster truck rallies.” We’ll be there—you can recognize us by the bibs tied ’round our necks.

Five Guys Burgers: What can we say? We love us some food. And so you may have spied some of the ATM staff  pigging out at the brand-new Five Guys on Paseo. Like burgers? You’ll love ’em here. Oh, and “the Cajun fries are to die for,” reports ATM’s ad manager, Page.

ATM’s Wedding Showcase: Check out our shameless plug: join other brides-to-be at our Wedding Showcase at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya for an awesome gourmet brunch, tons of giveaways, and the chance to meet one-on-one with of photographers, cake connoisseurs, dress experts, musicians and more who want to do everything to make your special day truly special. It’s just $50 per bride—and you can bring three people with you (including your groom, who can hang out with other grooms-to-be in a beer-and-football lounge!).

Opera and Broadway Open Mic Night: Ever fancied yourself onstage at the Met or starring in “The Phantom of the Opera”? Tonight, from 8 to 10 pm, you can jumpstart your dream at The Roasted Bean Café in Old Town.

So what have you been talking about this week? And what are you up to this weekend?

    Lots of good stuff going on around ABQ. I hope we don’t get blown away first!

    I am going to the Best Buddies NM Friendship walk on Saturday morning.

    Then if this wind stops would love to take a walk and photos in the foothills at Elena Gallegos on Sunday.

    I’ll be at Sunland Park for Sunday’s Sunland Derby.
    Like Ashley, I also hope the wind isn’t blowing. There isn’t much worse than a windy day in the El Paso area.
