- Hey JP, any recommendation for good hangouts?  I know folks have gone to Second Street but I've heard margaritas at the Shed are good (that's more of a restaurant, though, IIRC). - Ellen
 +
 
 +
Second Street, Draft Station, Thunderbird, Secreto are all pretty cool hangouts. There's also the Violet Crown movie theater with a *huge* beer selection and nice open space down in the Railyard. -JP

==June 18, Taos!==
 +
 
 +
[[JP]] wants to take a trip up to  Taos & Ojo Caliente. Come see small mountain towns, interesting geology, and maybe a stop at Ojo Caliente Hot Springs on our return.
 +
 
 +
Current plan will be to meet up in the parking circle at St. John's at 10:00am on Saturday morning. We'll then head up through the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Road_to_Taos High Road to Taos] and see some nice old towns, then lunch in Taos, see the Rio Grande Gorge, go to art museums,. On the way back, if some people feel like it, we can stop at [http://www.ojospa.com/ Ojo Caliente Hot Springs].

I will plan to leave St. John's almost immediately after we get back from SFI, because my phone died and I need to run by the Sprint store.  I can drop folks at the Meow Wolf site, go get my phone, then rejoin you.

I have to get my phone upgraded at Sprint, so I'll be leaving about 5:30 from St. Johns (the circle in front of the dorms) if anybody wants to go that early (I'll drop you off at Meow Wolf, do my thing, then rejoin you).  There are some restaurants in the area - Dr. Field Goods, and Duel Brewing, as well as fast food.
 
Warning, I am probably not gonna stay for the concert and will come back after the HoER, but I'm happy to take back whoever wants to come!

== July 2 - July 3: Carlsbad Cavern and Whitesand National Monument trip  ==
 
 
*Organizer: Ruichen: I have reserved a SUV from Enterprise for this trip (5 seats including driver). Cost will be split among everyone who participates:-) I have a California driver's license. I would like to stay at Airbnb or hostel/affordable hotel for both nights, since it is fairly close to the US/Mexico border and may not be safe to wander in the wild at night..
 
 
 
Tentative itinerary (can be changed):
 
 
 
*July 2
 
Leave St John's around 9:30am, head to Carlsbad Cavern National Park (takes about 5-6 hours), and visit the park till it closes. Stay at a hotel in the city of Carlsbad (one room, 2 queen beds, for 4 persons + add another movable bed -- let me know if this is okay. Only one Airbnb available in the area, and it is the same setup as hotel with 2 queen beds).
 
 
 
*July 3
 
Visit Carlsbad NP again (in the morning), head to White Sand National Monument after lunch. Visit White Sand NM till dinner time. Stay at Las Cruces (one hotel seems to have suites suitable for maximum 6 guests (2 bedrooms), at ~$150 total, still 2-3 beds though).
 
 
 
*July 4
 
Maybe visit White Sand NM once more and head back. Can stop by Albuquerque/Santa Fe downtown if there are festivals for the holiday.
 
 
 
  
 
Please sign up below. If you can drive, that would be a plus! (Ideally, it would be good to have at least 2-3 persons who can drive in such a multi-day road trip)

== July 1 - July 3: Grand Canyon - Antelope Canyon ==
 +
Leave St. John’s college Friday 6pm (after dinner).
 +
 +
Sleep somewhere on the way, 4h drive from Santa Fe (arrival 10-11pm) – we don’t know yet exactly where but it should not be hard to find a hostel or something.
 +
 +
Get up early on Saturday and reach Grand Canyon before noon (2:30h-drive). It’s 30$/car to enter the park. Using our car and a shuttle bus we can access all the viewpoints (some are not accessible by car). We can also do some hiking!
 +
 +
Sleep somewhere midway between Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon (1h-drive)
 +
 +
Get to Antelope Canyon (early morning, 1h-drive). 40$/person for the tour (4x4 truck, lasts aprox. 1 hour). Then there is also a river trip in the Colorado river from Glen Canyon dam to Lees Ferry (raftthecanyon.com -90$/person) These are options we should discuss, as they are expensive. Otherwise we can look for nice trails nearby to hike.
 +
 +
Go back to St. John’s (6h drive)
 +
 +
Places where to sleep have not been decided yet, we would like to know who would be interested before booking, so that we can find lodging for everyone. We have checked some Motel 6 where there are double queen bed rooms (two beds, four people) that are fairly economical.
  
* Fractal Foundation Fractal Shows (http://fractalfoundation.org/fractal-shows/): First Friday in Albuquerque (July 1), Fourth Friday in Los Alamos (June 24)

June 24 @ 5:00pm - 1:00am Meow Wolf expedition: House of Eternal Return exposition and Concert at night: Nosaj Thing & Lucky Dragons

Apparently a mindblowing non-linear interactive exposition in the day and awesome concert at night, so we can do both in one go or you can join us for either ; )

You can check the info for the exposition here: https://meowwolf.com/about/visit/ and the concert here: https://meowwolf.com/event/currents-nosaj-thing-lucky-dragons/

Car volunteers welcome, otherwise we would just share and Uber, taxi or just take a lovely walk and watch the New Mexican nightsky (you know, just in case we suddenly find that there are double the stars in our view ;) Note: not free, expo is 18 and concert is 25, but I predict they are surely worth it!

July 1 Opera

The Santa Fe Opera season starts July 1 with Puccini's 1910 La Fanciulla del West -- a gold rush era drama set in the American West, called a "lyrical poem" by a Toscanini, and starring Minnie, a saloon owner who becomes the outlaw protagonists's love interest.

Seems like the perfect opera to see while we are in Santa Fe! It's common at the Santa Fe Opera to tailgate first -- which we can do with a quick trip to Whole Foods on our way.

If you're interested in going, sign up here. In a day or two we'll work on getting tickets together. Ticket prices seem to range from about $37 to over $300.

July 2: Return to Meow Wolf

There is a lot to see and a lot to miss in the House of Eternal Return. Visiting a second time will allow people to find stuff they may have missed and will allow people who missed the first trip to see it. The exhibit opens at 10 AM, or we could go in the afternoon/evening if that works better for people.

Still needs a ride

  • Jacob
  • Rana
  • Ulya

Ellen: I will be around tomorrow and would be willing to drive people to Meow Wolf (text me at 703-585-0787). Scott also expressed interest in going but not at 10 AM.

July 2 - July 3: Carlsbad Cavern and Whitesand National Monument trip

Please sign up below. If you can drive, that would be a plus! (Ideally, it would be good to have at least 2-3 persons who can drive in such a multi-day road trip)

  • Nicole: I can drive but would prefer not to
  • Ryan (I have license and insurance)
  • Devrim-I will be driving too, and can drive some people. I may consider leaving on Friday and stay for two nights, depending on the research schedule.

  • Danilo. I have italian driving license. Some say I can drive.
  • Cheng Jin. I have Chinese driver's license and I can be a bench driver.
  • Jelena - I can drive

July 1 - July 3: Grand Canyon - Antelope Canyon

Leave St. John’s college Friday 6pm (after dinner).

Sleep somewhere on the way, 4h drive from Santa Fe (arrival 10-11pm) – we don’t know yet exactly where but it should not be hard to find a hostel or something.

Get up early on Saturday and reach Grand Canyon before noon (2:30h-drive). It’s 30$/car to enter the park. Using our car and a shuttle bus we can access all the viewpoints (some are not accessible by car). We can also do some hiking!

Sleep somewhere midway between Grand Canyon and Antelope Canyon (1h-drive)

Get to Antelope Canyon (early morning, 1h-drive). 40$/person for the tour (4x4 truck, lasts aprox. 1 hour). Then there is also a river trip in the Colorado river from Glen Canyon dam to Lees Ferry (raftthecanyon.com -90$/person) These are options we should discuss, as they are expensive. Otherwise we can look for nice trails nearby to hike.

Go back to St. John’s (6h drive)

Places where to sleep have not been decided yet, we would like to know who would be interested before booking, so that we can find lodging for everyone. We have checked some Motel 6 where there are double queen bed rooms (two beds, four people) that are fairly economical.

Let us know if you are interested, as we should meet as soon as possible to book the accomodation!

Interested people a week ago: Lars Sina Syed Danilo Emanuele Aina

July 3: Santa Fe Wine Festival

Wine festival! Historic living history museum! Come on down and take a tour of a colonial-era museum and drink some fantastic wine from around New Mexico. 12:00pm - 6:00pm, and then maybe stop by JP's farm for a hang-out.
