It is better to give than to receive, which is why people who give themselves a gift must regift it to themselves in order to overcome the despair of receiving it. Break out of a perpetual loop with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get two tickets to the Holiday Olé shopping event on Sunday, November 20 hosted by the Junior League of Albuquerque. The event will be held at Hotel Albuquerque from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Holiday Olé's lineup of 60 of Albuquerque's top vendors conquers lengthy gift lists while raising funds to combat hunger in the Albuquerque area. Shoppers can peruse intelligence-bolstering gifts by Discovery Toys or engage in a lively discussion with an opinionated smock from The Sassy Apron. Prettifying products by Mary Kay Cosmetics stuff stockings without clogging pores, and the many cocoa-laced treats at the Chocolate Cartel satiate holiday sweet teeth. Otherwise, visitors and their children can simply shout their present demands to Santa Claus himself in the presence of notarized photo paper. Benevolent shoppers can also enter their names or Winston Churchill fan-fiction pennames into raffles before sampling delicious fare from local vendors. Proceeds from the event benefit The Storehouse and Rio Grande Food Project.
