Favorite Things Friday: Post-Holiday Edition

Posted by on Jan 4, 2013 in Uncategorized

The holidays may be over but that doesn’t mean that the celebration has to stop. Here are a few things we’re doing this weekend to keep our holiday spirits high:

Embrace the arts (and your sophisticated side) by attending One-Act Plays by Young Directors. The Vortex Theatre presents: The Lady of Larkspur Lotion, by Tennessee Williams, directed by Natalie Wilding; Soft Dude, by Joe Pintauro, directed by Stephanie Grilo; The Proposal, by Anton Chekhov, directed by Matthew Lee. Show starts tonight and goes through January 20. General admission is $18.

Today and tomorrow, give something back at the Starbucks Food Drive. Bring a bag filled with non-perishable food to any Starbucks location in the metro area. Food collected by Starbucks will benefit Roadrunner Food Bank. Items needed include canned meats, peanut butter, beans, canned/dry milk, soups, sauces (no glass please), canned fruits, canned vegetables, boxed meals, pasta and rice.

On Sunday from 3–5 p.m. at St. Paul Lutheran Church, check out the Albuquerque Chamber Soloists performance of Figueroas, Felbergs & Friends IX. The concert features Arnold Schoenberg’s Ode to Napoleon Buonaparte (text by Lord Byron), Johannes Brahms’ Piano Trio in B Major, op. 8, and Felix Mendelssohn’s beloved Octet for Strings.  Tickets start at $15.
