Alamogordo, New Mexico Red Hatters Celebrate Christmas at Grill 49

Saturday, December 10, 2016

Members of the New Mexico Roadrunner Chapter of the Red Hat Society traveled to Tularosa, New Mexico for a lovely Christmas luncheon and party at Grill 49. After lunch they played a version of Chinese Auction. Each one drew a number and when her number was called she could take a wrapped gift from under the tree or steal one from someone else. If one is stolen, that person can then go and pick another gift or steal from someone else and so on. It was a ton of FUN and the gifts were lovely. The food was perfection and the ambiance absolutely elegant.

If you are ever in the area, I highly recommend Grill 49 in Tularosa, New Mexico, just 13 miles from Alamogordo. The menu is continental and they have excellent chefs.

This is all I have to say for now.
