Comments Off on 50% Off Two Theatre Tickets to Wooden Snowflakes

Get two tickets to Wooden Snowflakes for $20 for performances by Duke City Repertory Theatre between December 8 – 18, 2011. It’s a time limited deal available through December 1.

The half price deal on two tickets is to see Wooden Snowflakes, in a production by Duke City Repertory Theatre at The Kosmos – aka The Factory on 5th Art Space on Fifth Street NW.  The play by Catherine Bush is about a world-weary and cynical woman finding the true meaning of Christmas when stranded one winter in a cabin with a mysterious stranger. Although the play sounds to be ultimately life-affirming, about finding faith and belief in love, goodness, and holiday spirit, it is not recommended for young kids – they recommend ages 13 upwards.

Usual prices are $20 per adult ticket, or $12 for students, seniors, and military. For kids aged 12 – 17, tickets are $5. So the two tickets for $20 offer obviously scores best savings if you want two adult tickets. Call it half price tickets, call it Buy One Get One Free…. either way it’s a nice little saving and might inspire a theatre visit if you wouldn’t shell out full price.

Show dates are at 8 pm on December 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, and 17, with Sunday matinees at 2 pm on December 11 and 18.  You can pick which date you want when booking the deal via this link to Living Social.

The offer closes on December 1, so if you want tickets, nab them soon!

I certainly feel like a world-weary woman at times, and the idea of being stranded in a cabin in the dead of winter sounds rather peaceful, as long as the cabin is well-stocked with breakfast burritos and Ben & Jerry’s….

Comments Off on New Mexico State Fair Buy One Get One Free Admission

The New Mexico State Fair 2011 is in its last week here in Albuquerque. The State Fair’s final day is September 25, and if you missed our earlier posts, here are some ways to nab a deal before the State Fair fun is over for another year.

On Wednesday 21 September you can get Buy One Get One Free admission to the NM State Fair. When you purchase a ticket at the regular price, they’ll give you a second ticket of equal or lesser value totally free. 

Save $5 on daily ride wristbands on Wednesday and Thursday, when the ride wristbands are $15, instead of the usual $20 for wristbands every other day. Buy them at the fair at Murphy Bros. booths.

You can also get Buy One Get One Free admission on any day, using the Creamland Dairy Coupon on Creamland milk cartons. 

If you have a super-large family or an awful lot of people you’d like to gnaw turkey legs with, a group of 25 or more gets a hefty discount. Contact the box office for info:  (505) 222-9707

Regular admission for the NM State Fair is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors (aged 62+) and $5 for children aged 6 to 12. Children under 5 get in free

The final New Mexico State Fair food promotion by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture offers a free food tasting, and the chance to find out more about our fabulous New Mexico agricultural industry. 

The New Mexico state vegetables promotion on Saturday September 24 is from 12 noon – 3 pm in the Agriculture Building Courtyard.  Taste pinto beans and chile to keep your engine stoked at the fair. We have two designated state vegetables because…. because why should we restrict ourselves to one? Apparently the 1965 state legislature agreed, and decided that chile and frijoles are inseparable. Like Brangelina. Only less weird. And you can trust a bowl of beans and chile not to run off with your husband.

Parking at the State Fair Grounds is $7, although some parking lots just outside the grounds may charge less…. and others may charge more. So look around for the best parking deal before hitching your wagon.

The New Mexico State Fair is held at Albuquerque’s EXPO New Mexico State Fair Grounds.

Comments Off on New Mexico State Fair Buy One Get One Free Admission

The 2011 New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque runs to September 25, and if you missed our earlier posts, here are some ways to save on State Fair admission.

Admission for the NM State Fair is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors (aged 62+) and $5 for children aged 6 to 12. Children under 5 get in free

BUT today Wednesday 14 September they’re offering Buy One Get One Free admission. When you buy a ticket at regular price, they’ll give you a second ticket of equal or lesser value totally free.

The BOGO free deal will also run on Wednesday 21 September.

Other ways to save at the State Fair:

  • Creamland Dairy Coupon: Buy One Get One Free admission on any day, using the coupon on Creamland milk cartons. 
  • Find 24 Friends:  If you have a super-large family or an awful lot of people you’d like to go gnaw turkey legs with, a group of 25 or more gets a hefty discount. Contact the box office for info:  (505) 222-9707
  • Two for One Rodeo-Concert Tickets: While at the State Fair, buy a copy of the Albuquerque Journal containing the Journal’s Fair Deal coupon book. You’ll find two for the price of one Rodeo-Concert tickets for remaining seats.
  • Daily Ride Wristbands: On Wednesdays and Thursdays, daily ride wristbands are $15. On Friday through Sunday you’ll pay $20. Buy them at the fair at Murphy Bros. booths.

New Mexico State Fair food events and promotions by the New Mexico Department of Agriculture include free food tastings of all kinds of locally grown delicacies, and the chance to find out more about our fabulous New Mexico agricultural industry. All events will be held in the Agriculture Building Courtyard, and on the roster this week we have:   

  • Saturday, September 17:  Battle of the Salsas from 1 – 3 pm. This is a people’s choice award, which means you get to sample some of the New Mexico salsas and make your vote. Oh dear, how can I decide? Can I just try that one again??? A press release from the NMDA says there will be a new surprise in 2011 for this popular event, but they won’t say what it is. My guess is salsa dancing, but that’s only a very wild guess.
  • Sunday September 18: New Mexico organic food promotion from 10 am – 1 pm. Apparently organic farming in New Mexico is a $67 million industry. I’m not totally surprised as I think I alone spend nearly that much each week at the farmer’s market. (Mr Cheap requires a lot of feeding.) Anyway, the NMDA will be grilling up organic fruits and vegetables for you to taste, and when you’re not digging in, you can also chat with some organic produce farmers, and see the new Certified Organic by NMDA logo to help identify organic goodies in stores.

Parking at the State Fair Grounds is $7, although some parking lots just outside the grounds charged less ($5) last year. Others charged more ($10) so look around for the best parking deal before hitching your wagon.

The fair and rides will be closed on Mondays and Tuesdays this year, although agricultural contests will continue to take place on those days, and the public is welcome to attend.

The New Mexico State Fair is held at Albuquerque’s EXPO New Mexico State Fair Grounds.

New Mexico State Fair 2011 Discounts and Freebies

Filed under Attractions, Kids, Parades

The 2011 New Mexico State Fair in Albuquerque runs from September 9 to 25, with the NM State Fair Parade on Saturday September 10.

Admission for the NM State Fair is $7 for adults, $5 for seniors (aged 62+) and $5 for children aged 6 to 12. Children under 5 get in free

BUT here’s a bunch of ways to get discount NM State Fair tickets, and maybe even free tickets!

  • Friday September 9:  Admission is a bargain $2 on the State Fair opening day, for any age.
  • Saturday September 10:  During the New Mexico State Fair Parade, officials will mosey along the route and give away around 5,000 free 2011 State Fair admission tickets.  ***Update: Just received another press release from NM State Fair saying they’re giving out 5,000 free CHILD tickets, although the original didn’t make that distinction and they didn’t recall their previous bulletin. So maybe it’s 5,000 for adults and 5,000 for kids, or maybe it’s just for kids. Either way, turn up and look hopeful and you may score a free ticket! The parade starts at 8:45 am at the corner of Louisiana and Central, heading east along Central to Eubank. It ends about three years later. (It’s a jolly long parade!)

Comments Off on Two for One KiMo Tickets: Valentines Day Music

Thanks to the KiMo Theatre, our ABQ on the Cheap readers get two tickets for the price of one to see Eric Bibb and Ruthie Foster this Sunday February 14 at 8 pm.

This deal just arrived and I’m on the road, so a super speedy post on the artists, quoting the KiMo:

Eric Bibb blends various genres to produce a beautifully realized blues sound. Ruthie Foster‘s fusion of roots, blues, jazz, gospel and folk music has drawn comparisons to Ella Fitzgerald and Aretha Franklin. Her album: The Truth According to Ruthie Foster, was nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award.”

Tickets are priced $25 or $30, or $15 for student/seniors.

To snag your two tickets for the price of one: Just visit the KiMo Theatre box office at at 423 Central Avenue NW and mention ABQ on the Cheap.

Reader Special: Live Comedy Two-For-One Tickets

February 10, 2010 by  
Filed under Events, Live Performances

Comments Off on Reader Special: Live Comedy Two-For-One Tickets

Mention ABQ on the Cheap to get two tickets for the price of one to see nationally touring comics Freddy Charles, Rusty ‘Z’, and Scotty Goff this month. Regular tickets are $15 each, so that makes double the chuckles when you get TWO tickets for 15 smackeroonies.

Here’s the line up for this deal, offered by the Church of Sex & Ice Cream (button my lip) hosted by Rev. Stephen ‘HAHA’ Hunt at the Inn at Rio Rancho on the next three Fridays in February 2010.
 
Freddy Charles:  Pro touring comic since 1987, writer and performer for TV/commercials including Show Time Comedy Club, and winner of Castle Rock Film Festival’s Best Screenplay in 2009. 
Friday February 12 at 8 pm
Friday February 12 at 10:30 pm

Rusty ‘Z’:  Hypnotic-comic featured on A&E and Comedy Central, who’s put the ‘hip’ in hypnotist at clubs across the country.
Friday February 19 at 7.30 pm

Scotty Goff: Appeared at Laff’s Comedy Club, ABC’s America’s Funniest People, Ed McMahon’s Next BIG Star, and Que Locos on Telemundo. (Apparently there are also dinner and drink specials from Toro Bar & Grill before and during the show.) 
Friday February 26 at 6 pm
Friday February 26 at 8:30 pm

These people all look utterly crazy – but that’s what you want from live comedy, isn’t it? After all, the ‘crazy choice’ is either pols or comics. Know which one I’d rather pay to see.

If you buy tickets at the door, they’re $15 each. Buy in advance and they’re $10. But **DEAL ALERT** mention ABQ on the Cheap when booking, and you’ll get TWO tickets for $15.

See details of the comedy shows  and then call 505-353 6844 to reserve with this offer.

They also offer two tickets for $15 for the military on some shows, with proof of current or previous service. (Good on ’em for that.) So you can take that offer or the ABQ on the Cheap one….  although mentioning us does ensure we’re sent more specials for EVERYONE!

Church of Sex & Ice Cream plays at Inn at Rio Rancho, 1465 Rio Rancho Blvd SE ( Hwy 528 ), Rio Rancho.

Another lovely exclusive offer for ABQ on the Cheap readers, courtesy of the KiMo Theatre, with a two-tickets-for-the-price-of-one deal to see the folk/rock band The Jinnies live in concert on February 5th.
 
The Minneapolis-based quartet The Jinnies performs on Friday, February 5th at 7:30 pm at the KiMo Theatre.  I just listened to some of their music and it’s great – folk/rock with a soulful jazz and blue note, and gorgeous vocals. Fab fiddle too. Don’t believe me? Listen to the free cdbaby excerpt of the song Bloody Heart from The Jinnies’ CD Traveling Roots to get a taste of what to look forward to. (Or any of the tracks, but I especially fell in love with that one!)

Band line-up is Martha Alvarado on vocals and guitar, CJ Mulder on vocals and guitar, Jess Crary on vocals and violin, and Scott Yonke on bass guitar.
 
Want to hear The Jinnies play live on Friday February 5? Regular priced tickets cost $17 or $20, but thanks to the KiMo Theatre, ABQ on the Cheap readers can get two tickets for the price of one. (Or buy one get one free. Or half-priced tickets for two – however you sing it, it’s a great deal.)
 
To snag your two tickets for the price of one: Just visit the KiMo Theatre box office at at 423 Central Avenue and mention ABQ on the Cheap.
 
In case you’re new round these parts and have never been to the historic KiMo Theatre, it’s downtown at 423 Central Ave. NW, on the corner of Central and Fifth. Here’s a map to the KiMo Theatre.

Have a toe-tapping time, and let us know if you go!
