Is That a Balloon in My Backyard or Are You Just Glad to See Me?

The aspens have turned on the North side of the Sandias so it must be Balloon Fiesta time. Don't own a balloon? No problem. Come to the Placitas Cafe and you can drown your sorrows in a pint of great beer or your favorite vino. And do it all while listening to some great live music! Stick that in your dirigible!


On Friday, Oct 3rd, RockZonE will be at the Cafe from 6 - 8 pm. Falling rock is actually a lot safer than a balloon falling on you.







On Tuesday, Oct 7th, Anna N will be at the Cafe from 6 - 8 pm. Don't know what the N stands for....nice....native.... nameless. Come by and ask her yourself.




On Friday, Oct 10th, Acoustic DNA will be performing from 6 - 8 pm.

Fall Is In The Air -- Or Not, Who Knows

Enough Sense to Get Out of the Rain?
