Cue the Rocky theme song. It’s almost time, everyone. Our 10th annual Best of the City Party is right around the corner.
Currently, tickets are being sold through multiple nonprofits for $30. Choose the cause nearest and dearest to you and pick up a ticket—$20 will go straight back to your chosen charity. Don’t have time to drop by one of these places? Don’t worry. Tickets will be sold at the door of the event on Saturday, Dec. 6, for $50. Of course, don’t forget to grab a copy of our 10th annual Best of the City issue, which will begin peppering newsstands around town next Wednesday, Nov. 26.
Until then, enjoy your weekend. After all, there’s plenty to do. Seriously. Just keep reading.
This time, you can leave the kids at home. Tonight’s adult night at ¡Explora!.
Cough up $8 (or $5 if you’re 65 or older) at the door and enjoy the “Bubble, Pop, Fizz” themed evening. Check out the exhibits that you want to check out, while live music from E. Christina Herr & Wild Frontier booms from the museum’s speakers. Chew the fat with High Desert Amateur Radio Club of New Mexico members and chatter with other radio enthusiasts from far-flung locales. Gawk at the stars with members of The Albuquerque Astronomical Society. Enjoy some refreshments. The doors open at 6:30 p.m.
According to a New England Journal of Medicine report, perpetual dancing has some major upsides. The study showed activities, such as reading, playing board games, and dancing reduced the risk of dementia diagnoses. Keep that in mind when you strap on your dancing shoes and head to Nob Hill, where Maple Street Dance Space is celebrating 10 years Saturday, Nov. 22 with a free “Giving Thanks” open house. Have some refreshments, meet some new folks from the dance community, and learn about the dance classes this joint serves up. Oh, and boogie all night. The event is from 7 to 10 p.m.
The first-ever Pueblo Film Festival will be happening at the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center tomorrow, Nov. 22, and Sunday, Nov. 23, starting at 9 a.m. both days.
Check out films from Pueblo filmmakers, including feature films, shorts, and documentaries. Tomorrow will include a screening of Roxanne Swentzell’s The Pueblo Food Experience at 5:45 p.m. This film crew trailed a group of people that only ate pre-contact foods for a few months. Wait until you see the impact it had on their diets.
There will be other workshops, panels, and lectures throughout the weekend.
What are your weekend plans?
