Old Town Sweetheart Stroll: February 11

The second annual Albuquerque Old Town Sweetheart Stroll takes place this Saturday February 11, 2012, from noon till 6 pm.

During the Old Town Sweetheart Stroll there is live music in the gazebo and at various galleries through the afternoon, and of course we’d expect special Valentine’s menus in the restaurants. (It’s wise to make restaurant reservations for dinner.) Plus, some sweet DISCOUNTS and deals! The ones we’ve heard about so far are:

  • Treasure House Books & Gifts – Buy a book and get two free tickets to the Xtreme Komedy St. Patrick’s Day Show at the Embassy Suites Hotel.
  • Bright Rain Gallery – 15% off anything red or with a heart shape
  • Free professional portraittaken of you, and your Valentine if you have one, courtesy of Tintero Workshop & Gallery from 11 am – 3 pm. Details at the link – you can reserve a spot in advance or just drop in.
  • Enrique’s Chocolates in Plaza Don Luis – get one free chocolate covered strawberry when you buy six strawberries.
  • Old Town Basket & Rug Shop – 20% off any rug or basket
  • San Pasquals Furnishing and Home Decor – 20% off select items
  • The Candy Lady Drawing – Drop the coupon at the link at The Candy Lady by 6 pm to enter the drawing for a box of chocolate covered strawberries. Yum! I sent Candy Lady chox to folk in England this Christmas and they’re still talking about them. Then again they were The Candy Lady’s (how shall I put it?) more exotically-shaped chocolates :-)

We’ll add more as we find them – if you know of an Old Town Sweetheart Stroll deal, let us know in the comments box below!

The schedule of live music in the Old Town gazebo on February 11 is:

  • Flute Player William Clark from noon – 2 pm
  • Accordion Player Angelo Pagliocco from 2 – 4 pm
  • Violinist Robb Janov from 4:30 – 6:30 pm

Classical Guitarist Harry Irizarry will be doing the Old Town dash rather than the Old Town stroll, playing at Tintero Workshop and Gallery (2 – 3 pm), Vintage Cowgirl (4 – 5 pm), and Johns’ Western Gallery (5 – 6 pm).
