    Ever been to a clothing swap? It's a helluva good time. People just bring in sacks and bins of old clothing and everyone exchanges to their heart's content. Things we've heard of people scoring from clothing swaps: Jimmy Choo heels, Valentino bags, nice leather gear, brand new makeup, vintage costumes, brand new clothes and so many more unexpected treasures. While this Community Clothing Swap doesn't guarantee high-end apparel for the taking, there is a great variety to sort through. Maple Street Dance Space hosts the swap on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 5:15 to 7:15pm and accepts donations throughout the evening. All ages are welcome to bring their clean women's, men's and kids' clothing and accessories as well as snacks or beverages to share. Not only do you get to bring a home a bag or two of newfound accouterments, but everything left over doesn't go to waste. The leftover garments go to Vision Zero Albuquerque and Thrift-A-Lot, in support of Transgender Resource Center.

    The Bosque del Apache Wildlife Refuge is famous the world over among birders because of the diversity of feathered creatures to be found there. The Museum of Natural History in Albuquerque has put together a pretty cool guided day-trip on Sunday, Jan. 27 from 10am to 9pm, for folks interested in experiencing the refuge. The trip includes an optional van ride to the refuge (space is limited) and, once there, a non-optional bus tour through the wilderness, headed by naturalists who help observers identify the various species of winged wonders. You should bring a sack lunch, but dinner is provided in Socorro as part of the tour fee, which ranges from $68 to $74.
