You Say “Purple,” I Say “Poiple”

Saturday, Jul 16: Lavender in the Village

Being a New Mexican symbol of masculine power and ingenuity isn't easy, and it doesn't come naturally. I have to constantly refill my man tank just to keep ahead of all these young bucks coming up, meaning I'm always on the lookout for the best spots to soak up ambient testosterone. And by Conan, I've found the ultimate man-juice supplier: Lavender in the Village. For just $8 ($3 for flower children 4-12, and free for kiddos under 3) on Saturday, July 16, you can peruse vendors selling lavender-based goods from farms, wineries and artisans while enjoying live music and relaxing with the family. Gird your loins for a couple of new additions to the festival at the Agri-Nature Center: "Yoga in the Field" is an open-air yoga class taught by local specialists, and the Kids' Camp is a place to drop off your screaming 5-10-year-old so you can drink your lavender wine in peace. Because that's what a man does, dammit. Los Ranchos Agri-Nature Center, Los Ranchos • Sat Jul 16 • 10am-5pm • $0-$8 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
