Great addition, hopefully he becomes a regular.

Anthony Mackie added from the 7th-9th! Really looking forward to that!

Thanks! I'm hoping my kid won't get bored. I showed him videos on YouTube and he said that he wants to do it.

ABQ's own NPH does a good job at it, saw him 2 year's back. Have fun.

I wanted 11/28..could not get a single CP dining package on that day, my other preferred day was 12/2, I switch our days around so we could attend with Neil Patrick Harris as the narrator.

My fiance is very excited that Edward James Olmos will be the narrator for our show. Battle Star is his favorite show.

ABQOct 25, 2016

Frack, missing Adama by 1 day.

I'll be there 12/1!!

Meredith Vieira is there on my days. Meh. We did this last year (Joe Morton - meh) and I was fidgety in the seats after a little while, so probably would not book again. One day I'd like to at least stand back and listen to Whoopi and NPH for a bit!
