Things to Do In March : San Sebastián
Kicking off March's edition of things to do in San Sebastián....basically a list of everything yours truly would if I had the time. Enjoy...after all, you're in the Capital of Culture!
- march 9 ::: THE CALEDONIAN ::: This neighborhood bar has had its highs and lows, with a spotted past only befitting a bar that stays open very, very late. They re-open and promise "an exclusive design". Uh-oh. (The Caledonian, 20:00, FREE)
- march 9 ::: AMAMA ::: The Basque smash cinema hit of the year screens for those who missed it at the film festival. (C.C. Intxaurrondo, 17.00, FREE)
- march 11 ::: CONVERSACIONES (IM)POSIBLES ::: In this series, surprising pairs of people are grouped together to have taboo conversations. This round features Martxelo Otamendi y Gorka Landaburu, two journalists who lived through Euskadi's cruelest years. (Garoa, 17.00, FREE)
- march 12 ::: MUSIKAGELA WEEKEND ::: Several winning local groups, one of which is composed of a fellow Southerner, gather for a free concert. (C.C. Intxaurrondo, 21:00, FREE)
