Benchmarking Council Dinner

A dinner for Benchmarking Council members and guests will be held on Friday, September 25, at the High Noon Restaurant and Saloon. Located in Old Town, Albuquerque's original settlement, and nestled in a historic 250 year old adobe building, High Noon offers a taste of traditional New Mexican charm. Built in rambling style of Southwestern haciendas, the charm of brick floors, Kiva fireplaces and viga ceilings await you. Orginally consturcted as a home sometime between 1750 and 1785, legend has it that the structure has been both a gambling parlor and a brothel. With the additiona of two rooms in the late 1960's, it became home to a Spanish furniture maker as well as his retail storefront. The original building remained an apartment until High Noon took over - its last tenant being a Catholic nun. 

Departing at 6:30 pm, bus transportation will take our group from the Embassy Suites to the restaurant, where we will enjoy a two-entree buffet. Cost is $60.00 per person including round-trip transportation and dinner. You can sign up for dinner during the meeting registration process.
