Are you seeking something different to do when you visit the Duke City? You're already shopped for turquoise & silver, taken a hot air balloon ride and enjoyed several terrific green chile meals, so what's left?
Let's look at the things you could choose from for the first Sunday of January. Start the day off by driving over to the west side and the quaint little village of Corrales. It's free to enjoy, but you can spend a little money if you find something you like. It is the Corrales Growers' Winter Market specializing in fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables. You'll also discover some clever locally hand-made craft items for your enjoyment. Located at 500 Jones Road in Corrales from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can get more info by calling 898-7927.
Beginning at 1 p.m. and lasting till 3 p.m. there is an Open House: "A Fresh Start," featuring Katherine Gaunt with her oil paintings, Nancy Sala - works in glass & jewelry, BJ Briscoe - watercolorist and Neal Drago showing his boxes and other woodwork. All this at the Amapola Gallery at 205 Romero Street in Old Town.
But, leave in time to see and hear the Albuquerque Chamber Soloists: Figueroas, Felbergs & Friends X, featuring music from Europe at the St. Paul Lutheran Church, 1100 Indian School Road, N.E. Call 206-3417 for ticket info or check the website: abqcs.org.
Finish this busy Sunday from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. with an evening of Tango at Kellys Brew Pub. No cover charge to watch dancers from the Tango Club of Albuquerque - or join in and show off your own Tango skills at 3222 Central Ave. S.E.
