A Role Playing Clambake
More often than not, when you say dinner, I'm there. But dinner and a show? That sounds, perhaps, a tad more enticing than a normal evening over some shrimp and grits. Not that that's on the menu at the third annual “Evening with the Luna-Otero family.” Though guests will get to feast on a “gourmet meal,” the real luck of the draw are the costumed actors making their way through the festivities, sharing pieces of New Mexico history from the scope of the Luna and Otero families. Guests can travel back to the 1700s and 1800s and bear witness to the “adventure, romance, political intrigue, murder and even a ghost” of New Mexico's treasured past. For the mere speck of a price ($45), attendees get a one-of-a-kind evening à la Medieval Times. But I'm sure the jousting will be in short supply. Different periods, people. The scrumptious, historical extravaganza happens at the Luna Mansion in Los Lunas (110 Main SW) on Thursday, Aug. 7, at 6:30pm. Call 865-7333 to schedule a reservation. (Mark Lopez)
