Going Bowlin’

Posted by on Dec 18, 2015 in Uncategorized

Stout beers don’t seem too heavy anymore. Coffee can’t be hot enough. Your breath is visible as you wait for your car to warm up in the morning, slight shivers running up your spine. We get to see the Lobos play one more game, at home. Paul McCartney’s voice is suddenly associated with a certain Christmas song you can’t seem to escape.

Holiday season is here.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Check out these other ABQ happenings this weekend.

It’s sort of a guilty pleasure. December comes and you know it’ll be on TV. You act like you don’t want to watch it, but when you click through the channels and find that “there’s nothing on” you turn back to it.

Forget waiting for it to appear on your TV schedule, It’s a Wonderful Life will be screening at the KiMo Theatre tonight, Dec. 18 at 6 p.m. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. All ages are welcome. Admission is free. Don’t act like you don’t want to go.

It’s always sad when your team’s season comes to a screeching halt. Lucky for us Lobo football fans, that’s not happening. We get one more game, a shot a bowl game win. The best part: it’s here.

Tomorrow, Dec. 19 at noon, the University of New Mexico Lobos and University of Arizona Wildcats will collide on Branch Field at University Stadium for the 10th annual Gildan New Mexico Bowl.

It’s the first bowl game the Lobos have made under head coach Bob Davie. In fact, it’s the first bowl game they’ve made it to since the 2007 New Mexico Bowl when they shutout the University of Nevada Wolfpack, 23-0.

Tickets are still available.

Stories connect people with the past. They connect people with the world around them, a world they have yet to see.

Tomorrow, at 5 p.m., the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center will host a family storytelling event. Sit fireside and listen to a traditional pueblo story, accompanied by a hands-on art project. Learn about pueblo tradition. Absorb pueblo friendliness.

Storytime is included with museum admission, which is $5 for adults, $4 for military and seniors, $3 for New Mexico residents, and $2 for children and students. Kids under 5 are free.

What are your plans this weekend?
