Travel is good for the soul. Getting out of your home and comfort zone and into the world at large will help expand your horizons and give you something new to carry with you. This week, we challenge you to take a trip up to Santa Fe and try out one of these cool events they’re holding up there. Heck, you could even take the Rail Runner and save yourself the effort of driving too far.
Nothing says “community” better than a potluck. Do you make the best potato salad? Everyone says that, but let’s be real; it can’t be that extraordinary. But you might meet someone who can help you up your A game on the potluck field at Feast Dinner: Santa Fe! This community potluck is happening on Friday, May 17 at 6:30pm (at a location being announced soon) and is meant to offer a place to share personal experiences and discuss life goals with others over a great meal. So, come with your best dish and make it a real feast. It’s not a competition, but who doesn’t want to bring the best food to a potluck? More information can be found at feastongood.com.
