A Latin Christmas

Via Wikipedia

Katt Williams once said that the problem with “Spanish people parties” is that they don't ever end. Most Latinos can slightly nod in agreement that we do know how to throw a party, but like most parties, yes, they do end. Just real late. But you don't have to worry about that with the ABQ Ride celebration. That fiesta is only one hour long, and it's right during lunchtime, so you can plan your lunch break from noon to 1pm tomorrow, and then head back to work having partied it up in Downtown Albuquerque.

But what makes this event extra special is that ABQ Ride is celebrating with “Latin flair,” meaning that Calle 66 is going to be playing some tunes, and Soirée Entertainment is going to be dancing it up at the Alvarado Transportation Center (100 First Street SW). This event is completely free, and it's a great way to celebrate the holidays the Latino way: with lots of music and dancing! Wait, did we already get to that part? Either way, salsa your way down to this quick party before cumbia-ing your way back to your respective places of work. Go to or call 724-3100 for more info.
