ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A historic jewel of an Albuquerque hotel will celebrate its 75th anniversary Friday with a chance for one lucky martini lover to encounter a pair of diamond stud earrings, designed by a Santa Fe artist, in his or her drink .
It’s the Diamond Jubilee Event for the Hotel Andaluz, the first hotel that San Antonio, N.M., native and legendary hotelier Conrad Hilton built in New Mexico.
The earrings will be a special ingredient at a party where “Diamontinis” will be served. The earrings are designed by artist Katherine Jetter.
A free celebration with live music takes place in the lobby from 7-10 p.m., while the Diamontini event takes place in the hotel’s library and requires a $75 ticket.
