Looking for Pig Roast (Matanza) for Albuquerque Wedding

I would like to have a pig roast (matanza) for my (small) wedding of approx. 50 people at a private home in Albuqerque, NM. Anyone have recommendations of people, restaurants, caterers, etc. who can provide an amazing pig roast (happy/organic/free range pig)? I'll be contacting caterers this week but am wondering if there is anyone in Albuquerque that specializes in this type of event. Food is exceptionally important to me and I want to create an amazing culinary experience for my wedding reception. Thank you.

Clemente's - Crabs in Sheepshead Bay

Wondering if anyone has been to Clemente's in Sheepshead Bay. Is it worth the trek from Manhattan on a Saturday (will it be crazy packed)? Is the seafood amazing, or are there better places for crabs, lobster rolls and oysters in the city?

Thanks!

DENVER - truly amazing food?

Didn't intend to intimidate or come across as a total NYC food snob, which it seems I did. So sorry. What I was trying to find out is what in Denver is really special - doesn't have to be super high end at all. In fact, I generally prefer food and treats that are simple with a few quality ingredients/elements. I do have to keep it local because I'm visiting family and we're a little short on time. Maybe a better question would be, "what would you miss if you moved away from Denver?"

DENVER - truly amazing food?

Thank you for the recs. I apologize to Denver residents - I did not mean to be a snooty New York Foodie. I don't know much about Denver (or the mountain region) and wanted to get a good idea of what types of food are great there. I'm excited about Tacos y Salas #3 because as jerseycorn mentioned authentic mexican food is hard to impossible to find in NYC. Sushi and seafood seem like silly things for a visitor from the coast to seek out in a landlocked place - though I'm glad to know if I end up in the middle of the country for an extended period of time there's good seafood out there. I happen to be an oyster fanatic, but again, no shortage of those here.

DENVER - truly amazing food?

I am visiting Denver from NYC in a couple of weeks and hoping there are some can't miss eats. Type of cuisine doesn't matter - just looking for the best of anything Denver has to offer (eg. but not limited to: tacos/burritos, sandwiches, pastries, ice cream, brunch, breakfast, salads, grilled cheese sandwiches, chocolate, anything exceptional.) I love food that's purely good (like a perfect burger or hotdog) or really creative (like Marlow & Sons in NYC) - fresh local ingredients a plus. What's worth seeking out in the mile high city?
