Saturday, May 28: Albuquerque Wine Festival

Waiting in impressively long lines at the Albuquerque Wine Festival during the heat of the day to fill your blood stream with alcohol is no easy feat. So for all you winos out there who simply can't resist, I have a goal for you: Taste wines from the 20 award-winning wineries without getting sick. I'd recommend wearing sunscreen and guzzling water between samples of Merlot. There will also be live music, local artisans and food trucks if you need to take a break and sober up. This year the festivities commence on May 28 and run through May 30 at Balloon Fiesta Park. For anyone under 21 (and designated drivers!) admission is $5, everyone else's tickets cost $20.
