The deal: book entertainment for your holiday (or any) party by September 30 (2009) and receive 11% off the tab. All you have to do is mention you saw it on ABQ on the Cheap!

So, what kind of entertainment can you book? Glad you asked!

The Talent Pool is a locally owned company that acts as a broker for all types of entertainers.

You can have the party of the century this year and save 11%, to boot!

The offer is good for parties through the end of 2009, but you have to book by September 30th.
