SNOW+ANDES=Ski+Snowboard

If you look east, the mountains seems far away, but you are very wrong. Within an hour, you can be tucked away in an Andean igloo if you prefer. Get bundled up and check out Chilextremo.com for daily ski outings to Valle Nevado (7:30AM from Dominica 25) They can do the whole day, full rental starting at $73,000 clp, and be sure to ask about their lodging options as well. Visit Miércoles Poh (chilepo.cl) for Wednesday and Friday ski days with prices starting at $50.000 clp.

Knock Yourself Out With Jazz

Mix hip hop, rap and jazz and you will get a great cocktail of music from the band called Criminal Jazz. Why would you miss something this lethal mix of beats?

Thursday 19. 11:30PM. Salsoteca Maestra Vida, Pío Nono 380.

It’s Raining Movies Hallelujah

Santiago is flooded… with documentaries. Fidocs (Festival Internacional de Documentales) is pulling together over 30 docs, international, Latin American and Chilean, for this kicking festival. A few of the headliners are: El último de los injustos, At Berkeley and Manakama. Check out the full program @ fidocs.cl

June 23 to 29.  Where? GAM (Alameda 227) and Sala Cine UC (Alameda 390).

#WorldCup Flu

Watch out STGO because on Monday the 23rd at 12noon the city will stop moving for the Chile vs Holland game. Where should you watch it? In the street maybe… Paseo Ahumada will have a huge projector screen for public viewing. Or head over to the movie theater Cine Alameda for full HD and other futbol clips (Minimum charge $2.000. Alameda Bernardo O’Higgins 139). The  Sports Café (Apoquindo 2965) will have a special futbol program or check out every single game by heading to the Irish pub Flannerys (Encomenderos 83) which is a expat favorite.

Spanish Tapas Delight

If a beautiful wooden bar and cozy conversation doesn’t sound nice, you probably will not like the lovely El Txoco Alaves. Cheese platters, cured ham, tapas, paellas… plus chorizos! There are so many good options to choose from to keep your warm on those windy days in Santiago. Every Vasque country, everything good.
