Sanjaya? Really?

Infamous “American Idol” loser Sanjaya Malakar will apparently be hanging out at the Frontier Restaurant this afternoon (Friday, May 7) from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Why, you may ask. It’s a legitimate question. Apparently Sanjaya is in town for the Legacy Art Albuquerque X event, a fundraiser for St. Pius X High School. For the tenth anniversary of this art-centric event, the school is unveiling a “gallery of angels” featuring portraits of major benefactors, artists and celebrities who have contributed to the school. On Saturday, Sanjaya will be joining his “friend” Lou Diamond Phillips to work the lunch crowd at Frontier from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (Still not sure why.) The weekend’s events culminate Saturday night out at Sandia Resort and Casino with an art preview, silent auction, food, drinks and live music. Among the other celebrities attending the soiree are Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart Simpson), Robert David Hall (from CBS’ “CSI”) and Holly Dunn (Grammy nominated country artist).
