Excuse me readers, I'm on the phone for a minute ... "Hey, happy birthday Alburquerque! I know you don't go by that anymore, but it is your birth name. Okay, okay, we'll just keep calling you Albuquerque. What's that? You want me to ask the populace to help you celebrate your 310th birthday? By the way, you look great. Huh uh. Okay. Got it! Byeeeeeeee." Sorry about that, readers, so rude, I know. But guess what! You're invited to celebrate Albuquerque's birthday in Old Town on Saturday afternoon! There will be performances all day by groups like the Sun and Fire Dance Group, Kontratiempo, Casa Flamenca and many more. So boogie on down to Old Town and celebrate the reason why we're all together: Albuquerque! (Megan Reneau)
