Best Weekend Bets

By January 4, 2013

Follow me on:

Lots of rockin' going on this weekend, with Rock of Ages and Fractals Rock. Have a safe and wonderful weekend!

First Friday Fractals and Fractals Rock
Art and science meet under the planetarium dome for these live presentations. Fractals Rock has more rock music and less talk. See the shows at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science tonight, January 4.

Rock of Ages
It's a party musical with 28 rock hits from the 80's, including Don't Stop Believin', Here I Go Again and more. The Tony nominee Rock of Ages is a love story told through music. See the rockin party on stage at Popejoy this weekend, through January 6.

Kadomatsu in the Japanese Garden
Begin the new year with the Japanese tradition of Kadomatsu, the arrangement of pine and bamboo arrangements. The show is free with general admission at the Botanic Gardens and runs through January 6.

Two-Way Mirror
The play by Arthur Miller is semi-autobiographical, about his years as the husband of Marilyn Monroe. See it with the Southwest Rural Theatre Project. It opens January 4 and plays weekends through January 20.

Mystery in Morocco
The Cabaret Players will perform a mystery dinner theater at the Aux Dog Theatre in Nob Hill. There will also be belly dancing, Moroccan delicacies and music. The show begins tonight, January 4, at the Aux Dog Theatre and continues weekends through February 27.

Family Art Workshop
Every Saturday, the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History opens its Museum School to families to create art based on the museum's exhibitions. The workshops are free with museum admission. And if you are a Bank of America cardholder, you get in for free this weekend, through their Museums on Us program. Get in free the first full weekend of every month in 2013 if you have a BofA credit or debit card. Since this is the last weekend for Machine Wilderness, which closes January 6, it's a great time to visit the museum.

Other ideas for the weekend include getting indoors at a museum to stay warm; some offer free or reduced admission.
Staying warm is no problem at an indoor play space.
Winter sports are a New Mexico favorite.
