Favorite Things Friday 9/3

Welcome September with a bit of summer fun. With a weekend forecast of sunny skies and temperatures in the high 80’s, get outside and enjoy the weather before you can’t anymore.

Get lost in the maze of life at the grand opening of the seven-acre maize maze at Los Poblanos Open Space tonight, Friday, Sept. 3, from 6-9 p.m. Afraid to lose your little ones? No worries, this year there will be a small hay bale labyrinth for the little tykes. The maze will be open from today until October 30. Admission is $7.50 for adults and $4 for children.

Be an early bird and catch the worm (well…produce) at the Downtown Growers Market this Saturday morning from 8 a.m.-noon at Robinson Park, near Eighth Street and Central. Cool off in the shade of the elms, enjoy the smooth sounds of Los Primos, and pick up some fresh fruits and veggies to keep your summer fresh.

Take time to stop and smell the roses this Saturday at the ABQ BioPark Zoo’s Rose Celebration from 9AM-5PM. Bask in the colorful and fragrant exhibit presented by the Albuquerque Rose society. Tickets are included with regular admission to the ABQ BioPark Zoo; $7 for adults, $3 for seniors and children ages 3-12.

Favorite Foods Friday

What are you doing this weekend to get out of the house?

We’re going to check out some of our Favorite Foods. We really can’t help it; We like wine with our dinners and we love that Scalo Northern Italian Grill offers half-price wine on Sunday nights.

At Marcello’s Chop House this week we noticed an interesting special on the menu; Kangaroo. Really. Kangaroos aren’t as tough as you’d think, and their far less gamey than other wild animals. Maybe it’s the way the chefs prepare it, but it hit the spot for a unique dining experience in Albuquerque.
