Comments Off on ABQ BioPark Military Discount

The Albuquerque BioPark military discount gives a price break to active and non-active military personnel visiting the BioPark Zoo, Aquarium, and Botanic Garden. That’s a very good move to thank our service men and women.

The ABQ BioPark military discount on tickets was introduced during 2012, and it gives $2 off adult admission and $1 off children’s admission. The discount is valid for active and non-active personnel, although you do of course need to show your military ID.  The ABQ BioPark military discount is only for general admission, not for any special events such as the concerts at the zoo.

Albuquerque BioPark regular admission for entry into either the Zoo, or the Aquarium and Botanic Garden is:

  • New Mexico residents: $9 for adults, $4.50 for seniors 65+, $4 for kids aged 3-12, and ages 2 and under go free.  Take your New Mexico ID to get the local admission rate.
  • Visitors who are not New Mexico residents: $12.50 for adults, $5.50 for seniors 65+, $4 for kids aged 3-12. And hey, they don’t discriminate against non-New Mexican kiddies. Tots ages 2 and under still go free.

A combo ticket for all BioPark locations is only available on Tuesday to Sunday mornings from 9 am to noon. That’s because if you don’t buy the combo ticket early in the day, you won’t have time to trip round all the BioPark venues anyway. The combo tickets include the fun mini-train rides between the locations.

For New Mexico residents the combo cost is $15 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $6 for kids. For out-of-state visitors, the combo cost is $20 for adults, $10 for seniors, and $6 for kids.

The BioPark’s Tingley Beach is always free for everyone, at 1800 Tingley Dr SW.

Albuquerque BioPark Zoo (formerly the Rio Grande Zoo) is located at 903 10th St. SW.  Albuquerque BioPark Aquarium and Botanic Garden is located at 2601 Central Avenue NW.

Free and Low Cost Acupuncture

Filed under Freebies, Services, Spas & Health

Comments Off on Free and Low Cost Acupuncture

Here’s a sharp deal (ouch!) on acupuncture – with free treatments for new patients, and a host of other acupuncture specials, including discounts for military patients and families

Let’s get to the point: I’ve had acupuncture treatments, and for all my bad puns it doesn’t hurt at all. And I’m so squeamish I watch entire episodes of Grey’s Anatomy with my eyes closed (except for when McDreamy comes on). I’ve also found acupuncture effective for various conditions, although it has not yet cured my insatiable craving to save CASH!

So it’s good to know about these Casita Community Acupuncture deals:

  • Free acupuncture in February 2012 for new patients on Fridays from 2-6 pm.
  • Their regular low cost acupuncture treatments are charged on a sliding scale of $20 – 40 per session, depending how much patients decide they can afford. Expect to pay a $10 paperwork fee on your first visit.
  • Get 7 treatments for the price of 6 to save even more with the Frequent Patient Card.
  • A $60 pass is good for 7 visits within a 7 day period, and they say it might be suited for intensive work on issues such as severe pain, weight loss, or smoking cessation.
  • Get a free treatment when you refer 3 new patients.
  • All active duty military personnel, veterans, and their immediate families are treated at the military discount rate of $15. Take military ID with you.

Casita Community Acupuncture offers treatments in a community setting – meaning you’re in an open space near other patients rather than in a private room. CCA says this is the traditional Asian style of acupuncture treatment, and is the reason for the affordable acupuncture sessions, which usually last one hour (or 75 minutes for a first visit).

Casita Community Acupuncture is located at 2117 San Mateo NE.

Note: As with all service providers in the wellbeing area, we don’t endorse any particular business, we just report the deals. It’s up to the customer to check out services for suitability.

ABQ Little Theatre Free Pizza: First Responders & Kirtland/Sandia

September 2, 2011 by  
Filed under Theater

Comments Off on ABQ Little Theatre Free Pizza: First Responders & Kirtland/Sandia

Albuquerque Little Theatre offers free pizza perks for first responders and Kirtland/Sandia families.

The new production at Albuquerque Little Theatre is The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, adapted from the Mark Twain classic. The play features a cast of all ages, and should be a good family show, running on weekends from September 2 – 18, 2011. Tickets are a reasonable $12 for those aged 13+, and $10 for kids aged 12 and under.

Better still, they’re running two special Friday nights with free pizza before the show for first responders, and for military and civilian employees at Kirtland Air Force Base or Sandia National Labs. So if that applies to you, make sure you buy tickets for the Tom Sawyer nights when you’ll get a snack before the play!

  • September 9: Free pizza for Kirtland Air Force Base and Sandia National Labs military and civilian employees and their families before the 7.30 pm show.
  • September 16: Free pizza for first responders and their families before the 7.30 pm show.

In both cases, book tickets at The Albuquerque Little Theatre box office (505-242-4750) and tell them you’re Kirtland/Sandia personnel, or a first responder.

For a sneak peek (or rather a sneak listen), tune into 89.9 KUNM’s Children’s Hour radio program on Saturday September 3 from 9 – 10 am, featuring the Tom Sawyer cast.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer shows are on Fridays at 7.30pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 2 pm, through September 18, 2011.

Albuquerque Little Theatre is located at the south side of Old Town: 224 San Pasquale SW.

Comments Off on Deals at Three Acupuncture Clinics

When money’s tight, expenditure on our own wellbeing is often the first thing that’s lopped off the budget. So it’s good to see these three Albuquerque acupuncture clinics stepping up with such great offers.

Nob Hill Community Acupuncture

During the month of July 2011, the new Nob Hill Community Acupuncture is offering a first session for $15 to new clients, and also waiving the usual new client consultation fee of $10.

Regular fees are pretty good too, on a sliding scale of $20 – $40, according to what you can afford. Military and students get a further price break of $15 – $40 sliding scale. (Take your ID!) This is Asian-style acupuncture practiced in a group setting, by Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Eric J. Montoya. There’s a rather nifty Nob Hill Community Acupuncture online booking system for appointments if you want to see at once the appointment times available, and/or you don’t want to speak to an actual human being. Or call (505) 232 2870. Find them at 4118-A Central Ave SE.

* * *

Casita Community Acupuncture

Current promotions at Casita Community Acupuncture include:

  • Sliding scale fees reduced to $15 – $40 per session (usually $20 – $40 per session) through August 31, 2011
  • Two for One Tuesdays. Take a friend from 10 am – 7 pm on Tuesdays and pay for only one treatment through August 31

  • Military discount fee is $15 for active military, veterans, and immediate families with ID.

Golden Needle Acupuncture

Golden Needle Acupuncture  is becoming a non-profit, and has already started offering their non-profit rate. That’s $20 for private acupuncture sessions (as opposed to treatment in a community setting) that are typically 45 to 60 minutes long. New patients pay a $10 paperwork fee too. Make an appointment in advance with either of the Doctors of Oriental Medicine: Dominic Villanueva on (505) 550-6108 or M Jacob Schmalzriedt on (505) 550-2227.
