The Christmas Store--where it's Christmas 365 days a year! 
Case de Fiesta--which was one of my favorite restaurants in Old Town (neck-and-neck with the Church Street Cafe)--however, it has become "the orignal" La Hacienda--which was another restaurant owned by the same people across the Plaza, but lost its lease (or something) and moved to another Albuquerque location.  Meanwhile, a restaurant opened in the vacated space--called Hacienda del Rio.  Shortly after, the Case de Fiesta changed names to "The Original La Hacienda."  I haven't eaten there since the name change--but since it's still run by the same people as before, I don't expect there to be any differrence.  The above all happened between the summers of 2012 and 2013.  
The Covered Wagon decked out for Christmas.
