Travel guides like to refer to the winter months between November and March as Santa Fe's "off season." Locals know better: During this final weekend of February 2013, it's on and it's delicious.

The next few day offer up a veritable feast for the senses with the kick-off of Santa Fe Restaurant Week, an annual culinary romp of the city's finest food offerings offered at discounted prices.

Fine art, cuisine and top real estate come together to support future generations of creative minds with a weekend of ArtFeast activities.

Live local music abounds, highlighted by a double CD release party at one of the city's most underrated music venues. Poetry takes the spotlight with "Night of Illumination," the closing event of the immensely popular Snow Poems Project. And a local gallery offers a special look at Judy Chicago's textile work in "Woven and Stitched."
