Dancing, comedy and free wine!
By Summer Olsson [ Wed May 11 2011 3:00 PM ]
The Q-Bar, inside Hotel Albuquerque, is giving you something to do on Wednesdays. Today kicks off the first of a weekly thang. The evening starts with a live DJ playing the greatest hits of the last 50 years, (that sounds pretty general, but think about it. You could hear The Beatles AND MC Hammer. Sweet.) Next, it’s Q Comedy, a comedy showcase featuring some of Albuquerque’s finest comedians, hosted by Goldie Garcia. Then they’ll turn the music back up for more dancing. The best part is, tonight there will be free tapas and wine from 6-7 p.m.

This Weekend: Fight Cancer, Drink Wine!
By Laura Marrich [ Fri Mar 12 2010 4:35 PM ]
All weekend long, Domaine Lucie et Auguste Lignier wines will be available at Brasserie La Provence, with a portion of the sales going to the UNM Cancer Center. Then on Saturday, March 1, Scalo Northern Italian Grill will host a benefit reception with winemaker Kellen Lignier from 3 to 5 p.m., which will also contribute to the UNM Cancer Center. The reception is $30, and cash or checks at the door are preferred.
What’s the connection between this winery and cancer research? The UNM Cancer Center shares Lignier’s story:
Kellen Lignier, a New Mexico native who followed her heart to France, now runs her husband's family winery in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. Lignier’s husband, Romain, lost his battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor, in 2004. Left with her two children, Lucie and Auguste, Lignier has carried on her husband’s legacy of fine winemaking.
