On 2 KASA This Morning

There is something special and very unique happening right here in New Mexico. It the “Renaissance to Goya — A Gallery of Paintings and Drawings from Spain.” Our Chad Brummett from 2 KASA Style went yesterday as they were setting us the display.

The New York Times call it “wonderfully raucous” and “emotionally charged”. It was also called “flat-out electrifying” by the Boston Globe. The national tour of the explosive Broadway hit “American Idiot” is taking the stage at Popejoy Hall with a cast that includes our guest Casey O’Farrell.

The final Toys for Tots collections have been made and the generosity of folks around Albuquerque has been great as always. Bernalillo County sheriff’s deputies made their ride-alongs last night to homes around the county for people making donations, and David Romero was right there with them, capturing the giving spirit.

Angel Fire Resort opens for the season this Friday. To tell us all about the fun stuff you and your family can do there are two folks from the resort: Events and Promotions Manager Kalen Boland and Marketing Coordinator Michael Johnstone.

Manners matter especially during the holiday season. With us this morning is etiquette consultant Rita Chalamidas of Manners Matter to talk about restaurant etiquette and tipping for services from your babysitters to dog groomers..

So you’ve heard us talk a lot about Toys for Tots and how you can help needy kids in Albuquerque this Christmas. Now there’s an extremely inexpensive way to do that provided by Dani Alvarez, an artist from Albuquerque now living in New York, and get some incredible illustrations at the same time.

Get ready to move this Friday for the 7th annual Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis to raise funds and awareness of the debilitating disease. Joining us are Sophia Colón and her mom Dione Colón, the 2013 race chairperson.

We have a 5-foot Godzilla in the studio this morning. Really! Doug Hotle, curator of herpetology at the ABQ BioPark Zoo, drops by with his traveling companion, a 5-foot monitor lizard.

Something really special is in town right now. The Moscow Ballet’s “Great Russian Nutcracker.” With us are Renee Baca-Chavez, the local host, dance studio owner and teacher, and Moscow ballet soloist Ekaterina Uksusnikova.

Tomorrow on 2 KASA This Morning we’ll be talking about A Mariachi Christmas and when you can go see it. And do you have a LinkedIn account? If so, we’ll talk about three deadly mistakes you never want to make on it. Food Tour new Mexico will be back showcasing a delicious dish. All this and more starting tomorrow at 7 a.m. on 2 KASA This Morning.
