Antique Hunting, Mystery Solving and Moonlight Walking


Antiques and Treasures
I have a china cabinet filled with antique dishes I rescued among old drill bits, windup clocks and jars of antique buttons.  Wanting to find something out of the ordinary either for a gift or as a keepsake without spending a fortune?  Here’s a novel idea: spend the day wandering among the booths at the Antique Specialty Mall at 4516 Central Avenue SE.  If you’re a serious couch potato, browse their online store. (10 AM – 6 PM M-Sat, Sun 12-5 PM)

And, of course, there’s nothing quite like the weekly Flea Market at Expo New Mexico boasting 1300 vendors on 25 acres. (Sat, Sun 7 AM – 6 PM; enter Gate 9)

Albuquerque Little Theater

You’ll get a hearty serving of It’s Elementary, Watson’s in this delightful tale murder, mayhem and, of course, romance as Albuquerque’s local theater brings this beloved literary character back to life.  Opening night is Friday, January 21 with performances continuing until February 6, 2011.  Snag your tickets online or call 505-242-4750, ext. 2.  All sales final.  ($10-$22)

Moonlit Walk or Sunday Stroll – Free and Fun

Here’s a great way to get out, enjoy our beautiful bosque and learn a bit about our surroundings this weekend.  The Rio Grande Nature Center hosts a Nature Walk each Sunday at 1 PM.  Or how about an enchanted moonlit walk on Friday night listening to the hoots of owls and yips of coyotes?  Both are free, but call ahead; reservations required. 505-344-7240 or send an email ahead of time to Rio Grande Nature Center State Park (map).
