Take some time to ‘Taste the Sky’

Barbecue at county airport replaces Dinner Over Diamond event this year

By Jennifer Garcia

Construction on Diamond Drive has put a monkey wrench in commuter’s schedules, as well as high school student’s schedules, but it’s also affected fundraising for the United Way, as well.
Every year around this time, the United Way Youth Team hosts dinner over Diamond, a fundraising event during which diners are served — and eat their dinner — in the catwalks suspended over Diamond Drive. The funds raised during the event go toward the United Way Activities Fund, which benefits nonprofit organizations in Los Alamos and Rio Arriba counties.
This year, instead of dining over Diamond, the United Way Youth Team brainstormed and came up with the idea of serving a barbecue dinner at the county airport, which they dubbed “Taste the Sky.” The event is sponsored by the Fabulous 50’s Diner and Los Alamos County.
 With the help of Lynn Ballew of the Fabulous 50s Diner, diners will eat at tables placed on the tarmac and will be treated to a menu that includes: brisket and chicken, potato salad, cole slaw, beans, iced tea, coffee and punch. For dessert, a variety of KaleidoScoops ice cream flavors will be offered. Tickets are $20 or adults and $15 for children. The event will be held from 4-7 p.m. Saturday at the county airport.
