Winner - I Love ABQ Contest

Yes. The rumors are true. My entry for an 'I love ABQ Contest' has been selected as a finalist. Join me (if you have nothing better to do) Thursday, 2/26/09 at O'Neils in Nob Hill for the party from 6-8 pm. Winning entries will be printed in local paper, Local iQ.

Prizes for "Quirkiest," "Most Romantic" and "Best of Show."

My entry:
Green chile beer, dive films at the Guild, cold Balloon Fiesta mornings, roadrunner sightings – no ‘Q’s’ about it. You had me at 'hola'.

Could it be - that QuirkyABQ takes the prize for quirkiest love poem about the 'Q'?
