Dennis Jay: Live at ADC
Nov

to Dec 1

Dennis Jay: Live at ADC

Born in the Midwest, Dennis Jay grew up listening to a lot of Armed Forces radio – which tended to play Rhythm & Blues, Rockabilly and Country, rather than ‘Pop’ or ‘Rock & Roll’.

Mr Jay recalled: “A lot of the music was from The South and they’d play a lot of rhythm and blues and a lot of country music. Back then the armed forces were one of the most integrated parts of society, and that was reflected in what the DJs played. It was all just music – not black music, not white music – and most of it was somewhat out of date.” 

Armed with a Martin D-18 acoustic, the young Jay travelled throughout the Midwest, Northwest, South and Southwest, even staying briefly in Greenwich Village, writing as he went. Jay stayed in Washington DC in the 1980s, before moving back to Texas in 2006, where he now resides. Mr Jay has performed with various bands, as well as doing solo shows, and even opened for Steve Earle.

There’s an ancient Southern dignity to this music and echoes of Country’s past in his voice. Jay croons, quivers and evokes. His songs play from a 100 year-old jukebox in the corner of a bar, lost on a highway between two dying towns. Every song has an atmosphere and I like the places he visits.

Anniversary Weekend

 
New20th.png

Twenty years ago, Ardovino's Desert Crossing opened (after extensive renovation) under the direction of Robert and Marina Ardovino as the area's premier banquet facility.

Five years later, as part and parcel of a much grander plan for ADC, the restaurant opened - serving some of the area's finest cuisine, wine and spirits.

Shortly after that, ADC started the area's first (and still the only) true farmers' market.

We are honored to have seen so many of you walk through our doors to dine, celebrate and shop with our exceptional vendors.

Join us again this weekend to raise a glass with us, take a few trips down memory lane and discover why, 20 years later, we truly are like nowhere else.

Friday night: 6 - 9 p.m: Sample some of our newest menu items and take a walk around our beautiful property to learn how far we've come! Tim Thompson takes the stage at 7 p.m.

Saturday: Shop at our Farmers' Market and join us for brunch. Select vendors are 10% off.

Too early for you? Our Mecca Lounge is open in the afternoon for drinks and a limited menu... and the Murphy Bushaw Patterson Trio performs live in the gallery for dinner. 

Sunday: We're open for brunch and Classics at the Crossing (with the Sunset Film Society) presents "The Wizard of Oz" at Noon (admission is free).

If you're in to fishing, the Mesilla Valley Fly Fishers is co-hosting the Fly Fishing Film Tour in Sunset Hall. Admission is $35 and includes brunch. Proceeds benefit the Mesilla Valley Fly Fishers.

Cheers!

Classics at the Crossing: Journey to the Center of the Earth (1959)

Classics at the Crossing and Jay's Pix Presents the classic: Journey to the Center of the Earth

After the critical and public acclaim of Walt Disney’s second live-action production in 1954 of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the time seemed ripe to bring the works of Jules Verne to mass audiences.  Based on the novel of the same name by noted French science fiction writer Jules Gabriel Verne (1828-1905), the book was first published in France in 1864. This handsomely mounted production was a box-office smash when released just in time for the holiday season in December of 1959, and paved the way for remakes of Verne’s The Lost World in 1960 and Mysterious Island in 1961.

After accidentally uncovering a clue of a lone expedition deep below the surface of the earth, a curious professor of geology in 19th-century Scotland mans a passage to the Icelandic volcano that will mark the way of the intrepid explorers. What they encounter along their many months of travel downward is the stuff of a crackling good adventure yarn, filled with awesome beauty, giant beasts, spectacle and danger around every bend. The RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK of the 1950s! 

Starring:  James Mason, Arlene Dahl, Pat Boone, Thayer David, Peter Ronson.

Thunderous and majestic music by Bernard Herrmann (North by NorthwestVertigoPsycho). Interior scenes filmed in Carlsbad Caverns, New Mexico. (Nominatedfor Best Art Direction/Set Decoration, Sound and Special Effects)


No cover charge. Brunch menu available. Reservations recommended: call 575-589-0653 (x3) or visit our reservations page.
