Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Apr 15 - 17)

We're sensing some themes this weekend: comics, anime, exercise, awesome parties, and veganism among them. Seems like the cold weather has brought with it a storm of rad events! If you're planning on hitting up some outdoor markets or shows, don't forget to come prepared: an actual storm approaches, and it's supposed to rain every day this weekend. If you don't like getting wet much, there are plenty of exciting indoor happenings as well, from theater exhibits to bumping DJ Parties. Whatever your preference, we'll see you there!

Remember every Friday we'll post our picks for the weekend and please check this space often as we may update it with changes and/or new events that pop up. Enjoy!
