Albuquerque, NM – The winner of the Savor Albuquerque sweepstakes is Donald Giarrusso from Arvada, CO. He and his wife have never visited Albuquerque, and are thrilled to make their first trip this weekend.

The lucky couple will experience two nights at the Hotel Andaluz plus tickets to several of the weekend’s festivities and a gift certificate to Tucanos Brazilian Grill, as well as a Visa gift card to be used for travel, transportation or shopping in Albuquerque.

Along with the Giarrussos, locals are encouraged to check out the second annual Savor Albuquerque festival this weekend. The 10-day festival showcases Albuquerque’s art, culture and cuisine. Remaining events include:
