Lost Luckies

Ahhhhhhhhhh!
Ahhhhhhhhhh!

I hate lightning. It's frightening and deadly and unpredictable. I do hope it goes away before I get started on my weekend. Getting hit with electricity isn't my idea of relaxing.

Midnight Gaming Championship—A gaming tournament inside a McDonald's? Yes, it is true. From 6 p.m. to midnight this Saturday, the McDo's at 6300 San Mateo NE will play host to the nationally touring Midnight Gaming Championship. Gamers can compete in NBA 2K7, Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 and Super Smash Bros. Melee as well as two mobile games The Fast and the Furious: Fugitive and GTR2 FIA GT Racing for prizes (that maybe Big Macs!). It's just ... I can't ... oh, the hilarity!

Pet Adoption Summer Blowout!–Get your pet now—cheap, cheap, cheap! OK. I'm drowning myself in sarcasm. The City Animal Care Center is having a huge adoption "special" (their words, not mine) this Saturday at the East and Westside Animal Care Centers. Adoption prices for all pets will be $39 including all the shots and surgeries and stuff. No, really, adopt a pet. They need nice homes.

Dukes Night—For those of you pining for our long lost (but not forgotten!) Albuquerque Dukes, there is an opportunity for you to go "back in time" with the Isotopes. On Wednesday, July 18, the 'Topes will suit up in the red-and-gold unis of the Dukes. Game time is 7:05 p.m. and tickets can be purchased at any Ticketmaster location. Come on, Dukes, play ball!
