Some exceptional days aside, there’s not much better than eating outside on a summer evening in Albuquerque. The gentle warm air blowing by, the rainbow cascade of a sunset filling the sky, drink in hand while celebrating the beauty of life with a friend and a good meal.

It's Christmastime in the City

Christmas in July Tiki Party

By August March

How's this for a masterpiece of marketing mojo: The Copper Lounge, an upscale watering hole situated between East Downtown and the University district—and formerly one of Burque's greatest dive bars of all time, the notoriously fun Jack's Liquor and Pizza—holds a Christmas in July Tiki Party on Saturday, July 27, beginning at 6pm. Of course, it's a no cover, 21-plus affair, carnales; the Copper Lounge is one of Dirt City's premier spots to load up on cocktails in a swank yet sports-friendly setting, replete with comfy furniture and huge teevees tuned to the latest in sportsball. Add to that some Santy hats, ukeleles tuned to an open C and the aforementioned drinks—that one assumes will be appropriately decorated with tropical fruit, umbrellas and tinsel—and you've got one heck of a cool time in an otherwise hot, hot summer. C'mon, it'll be sexy in the artificial snow after slugging down a few Mai-Tais! Tiki attire is required, surfers.

Get Out There

It’s summer in Burque and myriad patios await your presence. Snap the kids out of their bought air-and-video game trance for an outing that culminates in the joyful consumption of healthful and delicious paletas—no, really!—or invite some colleagues and comrades out to smash the swanky local rooftop bar scene with you. If you’re looking for a more pastoral vibe, get your farm-to-table on in Albuquerque’s resplendent North Valley. Here are a handful of our favorite patios in The Duke City. Don’t neglect to slather on some sunscreen and install a rideshare app (such as Uber, Lyft or zTrip) on your smartphone ... in case you over-hydrate.
