It’s not a good time to gather together in large groups. It is, however, an excellent time to incinerate our woes and worries. This combination makes this year’s 96th Annual Burning of Zozobra in Santa Fe something of an essential ritual. The 2020 event, like so many, has gone virtual, with the burning of Old Man Gloom being telecast live on KOAT-7 on Sept. 4 starting at 7pm. But AMP Concerts is helping build the community spirit with a COVID-safe Zozobra Watch Party at HIPICO, Santa Fe’s premiere equestrian facility. Viewers are invited to see all the action go down on two large HD video screens, drive-in-style. Cuarenta y Cinco and Severo y Grupo Fuego perform live on stage before the burning. Tickets are $49, $66, $88 and $110 per carload (up to six people per car). Early bird arrival and setup starts at 4:30pm. All cars must be in by 6:50pm. You must purchase tickets in advance at ampconcerts.org/event/363759/zozobra-watch-party. (Devin D. O’Leary)HIPICO Santa Fe (Santa Fe)Zozobra Watch Party
- Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Jemez Mountains: Seasonal Herb Walk (Summer Session)
It’s time to accept that it’s likely society will collapse after all. Maybe not immediately, but perhaps around the election. Are you ready for the Mad Max world we’ve all been promised? Better to be safe than sorry, so why not attend the Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Jemez Mountains: Seasonal Herb Walk, happening Saturday, Sept. 5 in the Jemez Mountains, just north of the Albuquerque Basin. Starting at 9am, this $50 class will teach everything a person needs to know about surviving alone in the untamed wilderness of New Mexico, including plant identification, ethical and legal harvesting methods, how to identify poisonous plants and hopefully some monsoon ’shrooms. This adults-only (for reasons of content and hiking distance) class is the perfect way to prepare for the downfall of man, so to get more information, visit the Blue Wind School of Botanical Studies on Facebook.

Hear us now, and believe us later. If you’re looking to turn that weak and jellied bag of flab you call a body into a rock-solid force of muscle mystery, then you have to drop those silly workout bands and pick up some real weights! This Saturday, Sep. 5, join the powerlifting Dream Team at Iron Soul Gym and learn the fundamentals of powerlifting. Expert trainers Cailer Woolam, Stacy Burr and Ed Coan will train you in the proper execution of squats, benchpresses and deadlifts. They just want to pump you up. The workshop runs from 10am to 4pm at the Iron Soul Gym, 2400 Menaul Blvd. Tickets cost $225 at bit.ly/34FAOYH. Lunch is provided. (Joshua Lee)Iron Soul GymThe Dream Team Powerlifting Seminar
