Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Mar 18 - 20)

It's the last week of summer and our first Weekend Guide of the year! We picked a fun week to start--St. Patrick's day has arrived with a nip in the air just in time to celebrate. For everyone who is headed to Lollapolooza's notoriously shade-less stages, let's hope it sticks around. If you're not feeling the crowds, the heat, and the cash pull that is the music festival, there's plenty going on to enjoy! Hit up one of the many bars with Irish festivals, or catch the Clásico, a showdown between rival teams Universidad de Chile and Colo Colo. Music this weekend is all about Chilean Cumbia, but there are also a few cool imports worth checking out.

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!
