War Horse opens at Popejoy Hall this Tuesday and runs through Sunday. If you have seen the movie, you know the main character is Joey the horse, so it is interesting how they will bring a puppet to life. The puppeteers are said to be amazing in this production, and Popejoy is the perfect place to go see this performance. There really is not one bad seat in the house. Tickets are still available at www.popejoypresents.com and also www.unmtickets.com
There is also something exciting happening at the Rail Yards this weekend. Starting on Sunday, the Blacksmith Shop will be the location for a weekly Farmers Market. There will be local farmers, food trucks, healers, teachers, musicians, and so much more. This space is so cool. The market will open at 9am and close at 3. The Rail Yards are a piece of Albuquerque history. And who could forget the infamous picture of Walter White surrounded by all his money taken in this location. I am so glad that the city has revitalized it. There is even going to be a UFC fight held in that space on May 10th. It is the perfect setting. The Rails are available to rent out for events. My daughter Isabella wants to have her Sweet 16 party there next year.
