For just one day stop counting calories, stressing over lactose intolerance and pretending you don't eat carbs long enough to gorge at the annual Mac and Cheese and Music Festival. Throw yourself at 30 local restaurants offering samplings of gourmet mac and cheese, including local chefs like Mike White of The Point Grill and Amed Obo of Jambo Cafe. The ticket cost of $35 prior to the event or $45 day of, also gets some craft beer tastes from Founders Brewing, Four Peaks Brewing Co., Tractor Brewing Co. or a number of others with options to purchase full pours. Bring an extra $5 for parking and narrow it down to a singular favorite cheesey carb dish and vote for the best in the fest, as that chef brings home the crown for best in show. If that weren't enough, enjoy music all day from artists paying tribute to Michael Jackson and Bruno Mars. Expo New Mexico hosts the hedonist convention on Saturday, July 14 from 1 to 7pm. This event is exclusively for a 21 and over crowd.
