Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Aug 26 - 28)

It's almost September and as the weather teases us with glimpses of warm weather to come, there's a lot to get excited about. At Revolver, our favorite part about this time of year isn't the upswing of great music that you'll get on the weekends as Chile's best artists return from their international tours (we're talking about Ases Falsos, Planeta No, Me Llamo Sebastian, and Denver, all of whom you can catch this wbureekend). Nor are we most excited about brushing up on our cueca skills (but if you want to, check out the Cumbre de Cueca Urbana this weekend or check our article on this national dance ). What gets us most excited are the seemingly endless number of food festivals! If you missed Mastica last weekend, be sure and check out Come Gourmet in Barrio Italia, or Entre Ruedas, a food truck festival taking place in Parque Bustamante. If you're leaning more towards libations, check out the Festival de Terremotos y Cerveza happening at Teatro Caupolican. Now, the only thing you have to worry about is getting in summer shape with all these yummy options to tempt you!

Remember every week 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!
