This past weekend I traveled to Albuquerque, New Mexico with my roommate Kassie. The idea to go to ABQ started way back in February when we bought tickets to see Hozier live at the Sandia Resort and Casino in ABQ. Little did we know we were in for a treat because the Hot Air Balloon Fiesta was going on the same weekend! So, not only did we get to see the Irish love of our life, Hozier, but we also got to experience the world’s premiere balloon event (and my boo-thing came to ABQ to spend the weekend with us as well)!
I would definitely recommend 1) going to see Hozier any chance you get and 2) going to the Balloon Fiesta next year, the views are spectacular and are definitely worth the less-than expensive tickets to get in. If you ever find yourself in ABQ you need to stop by the Canteen Brewhouse for some awesome beer, food and a great outdoor patio! Some other fun/delicious stops would include Frontier Restaurant, Blake’s Lotaburger, and Satellite Coffee.
