Summer Music in our Neighborhood

May 27th, 2014

Guests at Adobe Nido have already begun to enjoy the great music and eating venue right in our own neighborhood. Just a short stroll from Adobe Nido, (less than a mile!), will take you to the Pueblo Indian Cultural Center’s Pueblo Harvest Cafe, which is already in full swing with their Summer Music Party on the Patio. This is where Albuquerque’s local music talent “cream of the crop” rotate through the lineup on Thursday through Saturday evenings, all summer long.

There’s something for everyone’s musical taste, so be sure and check the dates for your Albuquerque visit to see the lineup of Blues, Jazz, Rock, R&B, Salsa, Funk, World Music and more.

There’s always dancing, there’s always an unending flow of fresh baked pizza from the outdoor horno, and there is always a crowd, so go early, eat pizza ’till you split, dance your toes off, and enjoy the great view of Albuquerque’s own Sandia Mountains turning the true color of sandia, (watermelon), each evening from the patio. Go early and tour the Indian Cultural Center Museum to learn about the histories of the many Pueblos of New Mexico. Always a good time!Pueblo Harvest Cafe
