Your eyes are red and puffy. Your nose is a leaky faucet. Your incessant sneezing is starting to annoy your officemates (but on the plus side, your voice sounds really deep and sexy).

Either someone inflated a balloon in my head or allergy season is making its spring creep into Santa Fe, which means it’s time to make a run to the herb store for tinctures or the pharmacy for meds depending on which kind of Santa Fean you are. But this isn’t a story about allergies, it’s about feeling good so that you can enjoy all of the cultural fruits Santa Fe has to offer this first weekend of March.

Innovative theater, diverse live music, eclectic art openings, thumping DJ sets: It’s an action-packed, allergy med-induced weekend in Santa Fe.
