Best things to do this weekend in Santiago (Nov. 6-8)

November has finally arrived! And even better, it looks like the sun is going to be sticking around. Luckily, Santiago is booming with both outdoors and indoors (in case you need a break from the intense UV). The line-up for this weekend includes everything from live jazz music to DJ parties, women's health fairs and an Amy Winehouse documentary. Check out all of the events below.

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!
