Sandia Resort and Casino (30 Rainbow Rd.) is sorta like that other world outside the norm that you are currently craving, amirite? With a set of regally appointed hotel rooms, restaurants that specialize in abundance and economy, loud and lively gaming areas, the place is a kickass getaway from the rigors of city life. They also have groovy concerts at their adjacent amphitheater. And, if you've kept up with Weekly Alibi, then you've probably read about the upcoming summer concert season. In case you haven't, here's a juicy reminder: Albuquerque Blues and Brews happens on Sunday, May 28. With local and regional blues travelers like The Jir Project, Alex Maryol and The Rudy Boy Experiment getting down to the sound, this event is a way to greet summer in the city while still being detached from its actual presence (at the casino, at the resort: get it?) Tickets for this 21+ suds and songs spectacular range in price from $30 for general admission ($10 for non-beer-sampling entrance to the event) to $60 for VIP entrance, blues brothers and sisters.
