September 23-25 Gallery Weekend Mexico
If you are in Mexico City this weekend, our slow local adventure of choice would be to ride the free shuttles in between some fantastic art galleries. Plus, tonight there are cocktails and there is nothing like seeing art in person to make one thirsty. Un mezcal más, por favor. Pláticanos.
