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 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 Ojo Caliente Hot Springs.

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.

- Nicole! (thanks so much for organizing this. It sounds amazing!)
June 17, Out on the town in Santa Fe
Is anyone interested in going out in Santa Fe after our first visit to the Santa Fe Institute? Drivers would be nice, but I was thinking we could uber there/back if people (understandably) don't want to DD
Open to suggestions for location
- Dan Biro
<!*We'll be bussing folks back from SFI on Friday after our BBQ and can drop at some location in town -JP*!>
- 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

- 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..
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 am really interested in this and would be willing to help organize.

Jun 25 - Jun 26: Bisti Badland overnight trip
- Ruichen (Organizer): I have reserved one SUV for this overnight trip (seats 5, including driver).
Camping is an option, but I do not have any gear. And there is no designated campsite in the park (no water in the entire park/supplies.etc). I am thinking that maybe we can stay at Farmington, the closest town, and commute in and out the park. Cost will be split among everyone who participates:-) I have a California driver's license.
Please sign up below. If you can drive, that would be a plus! (Ideally, it would be good to have at least 2-3 drivers in such a multi-day road trip)
- Lula - I'm interested and am happy to drive.
