    What's Up ABQ: Cherie Knight & Richard Leurig w/ Safehouse Distillery

    What's Up ABQ: Cherie Knight & Richard Leurig w/ Safehouse Distillery

    New Mexico-made is something we all take pride in. Burquenos especially love repurposing because we love character. For us, New Mexico true isn't just a slogan, it's the real deal when it comes to the sorts of things we actually value. 

    Downtown, there's a place that's all these things - a place where New Mexicans are repurposing old banks, safes and all, for something we all truly value: a stiff locally-made drink. Whether it's brandy, vodka, or something even fancier, the skilled folks over at Safehouse Distillery are serving it up in style.

    Pull up a chair and pour yourself a double, this one's for you.

    You've heard it for about a month now. At last, the time is upon us! Saturday, Feb 22nd 2020 is finally here!
    Come on down and celebrate with us at Thirsty Eye Brewing from 1-3p!
    Coffee - Beer - Charity Silent Auction - Live Music

    Surprise! 

    Here's a special WUABQ episode for you.

    Are you over all the Valentine's Day hustle and grind? Have you totally given up on the Hallmark version of that one holiday in February and are, in fact, sitting on your couch alone right now watching non-dubbed anime with your dogs instead of going out on expensive dates?

    For everyone who's had a bad day, bad relationship, or just has a little rage to get out, Alexis Hassley's ABQ Rage Room is totally for you.
    I mean, seriously, what's better than breaking shit to whatever music you want? You don't even have to clean up afterwards, either!

    Choose from an array of weapons, put on your happy music, and start smashing
    - this episode's for you

    What's Up ABQ: Peter Rice w/ Downtown Albuquerque News

    This just in!

    There's another news voice in town. But it's not Steve Stucker - nor is it Albuquerque Journal. It's not even The Alibi.
    - It's Downtown Albuquerque News. Micro-news is in. It's about things that really affect you. It's about what's happening down the street.
    It's what's happening in your neck of the woods. It's local and it matters - and Peter Rice is reporting on it. 

    Downtown in Albuquerque right now, there's dozens of intensely local issues happening right now. So if you live there (yes, you), or if even if you just occasionally visit, this stuff affects you. So tune your podcast dial in, this episode is fresh off the press!



    Want to learn more about Peter and D.A.N.? Visit their official website HERE.

    What's Up ABQ: Johanna Gilligan w/ Homewise

    What's Up ABQ: Johanna Gilligan w/ Homewise

    For Burqenos, which neighborhood we live in is almost as important as that serious question we ask all our guests on the show. Almost. That said, so many of us know all too well the hustle and grind which defines in our minds whether we rent or own our home. But what if we had more local options?

    Enter Johanna Gilligan of Homewise.

    Homewise's efforts right here in town help make the all-important distinction between renting and owning (while still being able to afford to live). Their team is bringing real resources to the table for ordinary folks who are trying to live their best lives. I mean, hell, after talking we're interested in using their services! But it's not all real estate either. Johanna and Homewise are also actively exploring ways to revitalize historic neighborhoods, all the while finding that balance between civic facelifts and gentrification.

    For more on Johanna and Homewise, check out their website HERE (https://www.homewise.org/)

    And hey!! It's official - remember that big thing we kept hinting at?

    Well get ready, cuz here's your chance to meet everybody we've interviewed up to this point at our official Show Us Your Zia party!! Bring your friend and head on down to ThirstyEye on Sat, Feb 22nd. Party goes on from 1-3, with donations all going to a local mystery charity!

    Spread the word, and thanks for helping keep it local :)

    Got a local business or something else creative going on? We'd absolutely Love to know about it! Shoot us a DM on our IG HERE (https://www.instagram.com/abqwhatsup/)

    Want to help us keep it local?  Be a show sponsor, and help us continue spreading the word on all the awesome things Albuquerque has going on. Message us on said IG to get started.
