March. It’s still winter, but daylight savings time happens on the 12th. It’s still cold, but warming up. It’s the “Meh” month that’s in-between the others. So what can we do in Northern New Mexico to liven up our senses? Here are a few ideas.
|EYE OPENING OPTICAL SHOPS. A friend’s wife once exclaimed, when he was thinking of buying inexpensive eyeglass frames, “But It’s Your Face”. It was an eye-opening statement to say the least. And if, indeed, our eyes are the windows to our souls, then they should have pretty nice frames indeed.|
Two places we love in Santa Fe for trendy frames and expert advice are Ojo Optique and Oculus. Located on Lincoln Avenue, Ojo Optique offers fashionable frames that will complement your couture, and expert advice from their team. Visit them atwww.ojooptique.com. Oculus Optique, another great choice, has two locations and offers both optical eye care services and a beautiful array of fashion eyeware. Check them out at www.oculusbotwineyegroup.com.
Now, here are some other eye-popping things you can do in March.
|GO GET SOME VAN GOGH.Immerse yourself in the world of Vincent Van Gogh like you’ve never experienced before. Beyond Van Gogh is a rich and unique multimedia experience, taking the viewer on a journey through over 300 iconic artworks including instantly-recognizable classics “The Starry Night”, “Sunflowers”, and “Cafe Terrace at Night”, now freed from their frames. Set to a symphonic score and using the artist’s own dreams, thoughts, and words to drive the experience as a narrative, Van Gogh’s art comes to life by appearing and disappearing, flowing across multiple surfaces and heightening the senses with their immense detail. Guests will leave with a new appreciation of this prolific artist’s stunning work.|

|KEEP THAT FRENCH FEELING GOING. Check out two new French restaurants in town that will fill-up your Francophile senses. La Tour Experience on Sandoval is open Wednesday through Sunday from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. La Tour is a bakery and restaurant offering crepes, quiches, soups and more. Find them on Facebook at La Tour Experience. |
Mon Dieu! We’ve also got Mille! Mille French Cafe & Creperie is located where the laudable Bouche used to be on West Alameda. Mille means 1,000 in French, and it seems like they’ve got about a thousand great things on the menu including crepes, pastries, salads, cheese trays, traditional hearty French dishes, breads and more. And if Marie Antoinette were still around, she’d be losing her head once again over the cakes. (Sorry we just couldn’t resist). They’re open Wednesday through Sunday from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Visit them at www.millenm.com.
|REDISCOVER THE JOY OF MOVIES ON THE BIG SCREEN. Our movie theaters are back open again, and what’s better than a big box of popcorn, Dolby sound, and laughing, crying or screaming with your friends at the movies. Check out what’s going on at the Violet Crown, where you can see blockbuster films and also get a great burger and a beer! Get more information at Violet Crown Cinema | Santa Fe. Or check out the Contemporary Center for the Arts Cinematheque for the artsiest of art films. Visit them at www.ccasantafe.org. You can also keep that spirit of independent film going at the Jean Cocteau, which features what it calls “eclectic” films. www.jeancocteaucinema.com|
