It began on Saturday, October 1, 2011 and wowed spectators until yesterday morning. Hundreds of amazing, colorful, fun-shaped and glorious balloons along with tens of thousands of people watching in awe. The weather was fantastic with the exception of a bit of rain and one evening of wind, but lots of beautiful New Mexico sunshine!

The brisk evenings have abrubptly approached us, and we’re gearing up for fall. This is an exciting time, because we see menus changing, adding pumpkin, butternut, acorn and many other squashes, and we love pumpkin at the Mauger! Watch for our delicious pumpkin recipes, and some will be Mauger Estate originals.
We are gearing up for Balloon Fiesta, which starts September 30th, and continues for 10 days. We do still have rooms available so please think about attending this world class event! You will thoroughly enjoy it, and the photos that you take home with you will be magnificent!
In the meantime, enjoy the little ones playing soccer, your older ones at homecoming, and your professional football team rallying as we kick of the season!
The Mauger’s new blog! Albuquerque has had a very dry summer, but recent rain has been welcomed and we’re doing daily rain dances while making our scrumptious homemade chocolate chip cookies and granola. It’s free entertainment, so stop by if you’re in the area.
We all know “free” is hard to come by these days, so if you’ve checked our Facebook deals, you’re loving the free granola! We also have great specials on our website if you haven’t already checked them out.
As the summer has been sluggish this year, we would like to thank those of you who are choosing to support local businesses rather than big box chain stores, restaurants, hotels, etc. After all, when we’re all struggling, wouldn’t you like to meet the person that receives your money? We know you have that choice every day, and it is much appreciated when you take the extra step to feed the little fish!
As fall approaches, keep a watch out for specials on our website, through Facebook, and in the blog! Dog days of summer are almost over, and the front porch at the Mauger is calling your name.
Meet Mina, our most recent canine guest! She’s a 10 week old Newfoundland.
