Edible Arrangements' chocolate-covered strawberry box merges the rich flavors of chocolate with the succulent decadence of fresh strawberries. The primly packaged red box contains 12 ripe strawberries, each of which was picked at its peak freshness before being hand-dipped in a semi-sweet chocolate blend. Teacher's pets seeking domestication can gift their eminent educator with something other than the traditional red apple or slab of shark meat with a box of chocolate-covered strawberries.
As the emcees of The Garden's Independence Day weekend celebration, Steve Aoki and a bevy of supporting DJs light up the upscale restaurant with an explosive display of dance beats. From 6 p.m.–9 p.m. on Independence Eve, The Garden's chefs apply their culinary expertise to the grilling of complimentary hamburgers, hot dogs, and 8-track tapes. Later, music from artists such as Bulletproof Tigers and DJ Omar Garnica fills the restaurant, bouncing off the indoor trees and the outdoor patio's billowing cloth ceiling. DJ Steve Aoki takes the stage to finish the party, pumping out house music from his tour as well as his electronica remix of "God Bless America," recently voted by Congress to be the new national anthem.
Located at Lyles Family Farm, the Mesilla Valley Maze is one of New Mexico's oldest corn mazes, providing family-friendly fall recreation since 1999. Using a GPS-guided farm tractor, the Mesilla Valley Maze is transformed from a basic pencil sketch into a nine-acre patterned trail, offering a fun and confusing design that changes yearly. The farm allows visitors to the maze to use handheld GPS devices, and two different fun and challenging games help kids and their families navigate the creative confines of the labyrinth without conjuring the ghostly spirit of Leonhard Euler trapped deep within.
