Being struck by love is like being struck like lightning: it's sudden and electrifying and explains why Benjamin Franklin was voted World's Sexiest Man 17 years running. Make your own sparks fly with today's GrouponLive deal: for $15, you get one admission to the 2011 Hot Singles of Albuquerque event, sponsored by Albuquerque The Magazine, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino on Friday, August 26, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. (a $30 value).
Albuquerque The Magazine conducts a steamy soiree for the city's most eligible nonbetrothed, as its Hot Singles event celebrates its eighth year of spirited mingling and matchmaking. The periodical's fashionable eyes cull through stacks of unsaddled and unbridled local beauties, tossing out bad eggs and models who specialize in posing for "before" pictures to assemble its annual Hot Singles issue and extravaganza. This year's fest brings successful ladies and gents with multiple Y chromosomes together at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, where guests swallow their stammers while casting pheromones across the pool and lounge.
Shadowdancers' silhouettes grace the walls, and bartenders saunter through good-looking gaggles with a trio of half-ounce liquor samples to increase charisma and awaken charm muscles. Partygoers can nosh on hors d'oeuvres and adorn themselves in seductive henna tattoos to support unlikely backstories about Australasian prison escapes. Between mini dates and sultry glances, guests can undertake small-scale makeovers or ask tarot-card readers to determine whether a new lass or beau is worthy of meeting the parents.
Albuquerque The Magazine
Albuquerque The Magazine packs its monthly glossy with colorful displays of city happenings as well as features, shopping tips, and interviews with local notables. Peruse the culture section for the scoop on arts events, plan cuisine outings with the restaurant guide, or browse the pet section to learn about doggie wedding venues. The photo-filled ode to New Mexico's largest city distinguishes itself with its community involvement, its insider coverage of local goings-on, and its aesthetic contribution to mousy coffee tables.
