Quick Tips For Visiting Gay Santa Fe


Take it easy. Santa Fe’s high altitude (7,000 feet above sea level) means air is rarefied, thinner. It usually takes about 48 hours to adjust and staying hydrated helps.

Watch your alcohol intake. One drink is the equivalent of three at sea level.

Use sunscreen and wear a hat. There are no beaches, but Santa Fe is closer to the sun, and the sun shines 300 days of the year.

Santa Fe’s climate is dry, with sometimes less than 20 percent humidity. Nights and early mornings are cool, even in July and August.

Santa Fe is in mountain and ski country, so expect six to eight major snowfalls from November to April.

The climate in Santa Fe can change rapidly and often. In the summer, days can be hot (90+) and nights quite cool (low 60’s). Be sure to check current conditions before traveling as monsoon rains can quickly cool down a hot day and bring unexpected floods and rapid humidity. The average temperature difference between Albuquerque and Santa Fe is between 6-8° on any given day.

The Santa Fe area is arid, and water is precious. Restaurants serve water by request and hotels may ask that you participate in water conservation.
Make hotel reservations in advance. Weekends in the summer are usually booked near capacity, and rooms during Santa Fe’s Indian Market (third weekend in August) are booked up to a year in advance.

If you’re staying outside the downtown area, your best bet is to have a car. There is city-wide taxi service and a public bus system, Santa Fe Trails, that serves the city with six routes, including specially decorated buses to Museum Hill. Buses operate from 6:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Saturdays. There is no service on Sundays or holidays. Schedules are available on each bus, at libraries and at locations throughout the city. For schedule, rate and fare information, call 984-6730.

Parking can be tight in Santa Fe in June, July and August, though most attractions are within walking distance of downtown hotels. There are convenient city-owned parking lots in the downtown area and many meters available for one or two hours only that cost $1 per hour.

Be patient in traffic and mindful of pedestrians. Obey all traffic rules and be alert, whether driving or walking. Many Santa Fe streets in the downtown area are narrow with an abundance of foot traffic.

Using hand-held cell phones while driving is illegal, but hands-free devices are allowed.

Reservations are always recommended for upscale restaurants. Busiest dining hours are from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. Casual dress is acceptable in most restaurants.

Standard tipping is 15 to 20 percent of bill. Some restaurants will add a service charge up to 18 percent for parties of five or more.

Seniors Check with your doctor regarding any physical condition that could be affected by Santa Fe’s high altitude. Wear sturdy walking shoes and be aware of uneven floors when entering historic buildings. If you have dietary concerns, call the restaurant ahead of time for information

    Thank you in advance

    The Lensic Performing Arts Center in Santa Fe, NM welcomes comedian Paula Poundstone on Thursday, February 4th.  Thirty two years ago Paula Poundstone climbed on a Greyhound bus and traveled across the country — stopping in at open mic nights at comedy clubs as she went.  She went on to become one of our country’s foremost humorists. You can hear her through your laughter as a regular panelist on NPR’s popular rascal of a weekly news quiz show, Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me. Watch for Paula as she lends her distinctive voice to the character “Forgetter Paula” in the new Disney Pixar film “Inside Out” about a young girl Riley who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job.  The movie chronicles and the emotional roller coaster that change can bring. Riley’s emotions include; Joy (Amy Poehler,) Fear (Bill Hader,) Anger (Lewis Black,) Disgust (Mindy Kaling,) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith.) “Inside Out” opens nationwide June 19, 2015.  Check out the trailer at:

    Poundstone tours regularly, performing standup comedy across the country, causing Bob Zany with the Boston Globe to write: “Poundstone can regale an audience for several hours with her distinctive brand of wry, intelligent and witty comedy.” Audience members may put it a little less elegantly: “I peed my pants.”

    While there is no doubt that Poundstone is funny, the thing that probably separates her from the pack of comics working today and that has made her a legend among comics and audiences alike is her ability to be spontaneous with a crowd.  Poundstone says: “No two shows I do are the same. It’s not that I don’t repeat material. I do. My shows, when they’re good, and I like to think they often are, are like a cocktail party. When you first get there, you talk about how badly you got lost and how hard it was to find parking. Then you tell a story about your kids or what you just saw on the news. You meet some new people and ask them about themselves.  Then, some-one says, “Tell that story you used to tell,” and then someone on the other side of the room spills a drink, and you mock them.  No one ever applauds me when I leave a party, though. I think they high five.”

    Paula’s interchanges with the audience are never mean or done at a person’s expense. She even manages to handle politics without provoking the pall of disapproval less artful comics have re-ceived.

    Her most recent comedy CD, I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Boston was recorded dur-ing a performance at the Wilbur Theatre in the heart of the city and was released on April fool’s Day 2013.  This was a follow up to her successful first CD I HEART JOKES: Paula Tells Them in Maine that was released in 2009.

    Over the span of her career, Paula has amassed a list of awards and accolades that stretch the length of a great big tall guy’s arm. She not only shot through the glass ceiling, she never even acknowledged that it was there.  Never one to stereotype herself as a ‘female comedian’ or limit herself to comedy from a ‘female’ point of view, in the early 90’s she was the first woman to win the cable ACE for Best Standup Comedy Special and the first woman to perform standup at the prestigious White House Correspondents dinner where she joined the current President as part of the evening’s entertainment. 

    In November, 2012 in Washington DC, Paula was honored, along with Nina Totenberg, NPR correspondent; David Brooks, New York Times columnist; and Bob Mankoff, New York-er Cartoon Editor, with the 2012 Moment Magazine Creativity Award at their 35th anniversary symposium and dinner, followed by a one-hour panel on the intersection of humor and politics. Just weeks later Paula was hand-picked to interview Calvin Trillin for the Los Angeles-series-darling, Writers Bloc, a series that presents conversations between the featured author and anoth-er interesting thinker. 

    Paula has starred in comedy specials on HBO and BRAVO, won an Emmy Award, served as “official correspondent” for The Tonight Show during the 1992 Presidential race, pioneered the art of backstage commentary during an Emmy telecast, steps up to the plate for causes she be-lieves in, and is almost always included in any compendium – be it film, television or print, not-ing comedic influences of the 20th/21st century, most recently, We Killed: The Rise of Women in American Comedy (October 2012, Sarah Crichton Books). Paula also appears on “Late Night w/Craig Ferguson” about 3 times a year and she’ll do an occasional editorial for NPR’s “All Things Considered”. 

    In April 2013 NPR Laughter Therapy (Highbridge Audio) released a 2-CD collection of NPR’s best interviews and stories with “funny folks” including Paula’s Talk of the Nation interview.  If it means anything to anyone, she is recognized as one of Comedy Central’s 100 greatest stand-ups of all time.  Paula won an American Comedy Award for Best Female Standup Comic, and in 2010 she was one of a select group voted into the Comedy Hall of Fame. 

    Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me is now heard in 5 million homes across the country, including all of the major markets, internationally on NPR Worldwide and on the Internet via podcast.  In 2008 it received a Peabody Award for broadcasting excellence.  On the show Paula gets to match wits with some of the country’s leading pundits.  In May 2013 the show filmed its first Cinecast from New York’s Town Hall and Paula was one of the Panelists.  The show made its television debut on BBC America with a “2011 Year In Review.” Paula was on that panel as well.  Poundstone quickly goes on record about how much she loves being part of the show saying: “I am a proud member of the endorphin production industry.  They allow me to say whatever I want on Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me.  The panelists are unscripted, so it’s perfect for me. I feel like I’m a batter in a batting cage. I get lobbed topics. Sometimes I just watch them go by, but every now and then I get a piece of one. If the others didn’t cheat, it would be an almost perfect work experience.”

    Paula is also a published author and lecturer.  Her hard cover book, There is Nothing In This Book That I Meant To Say (Crown, 2006, with a forward by Mary Tyler Moore) is still in release on audio (Highbridge) and in paperback.  Other writing credits include the back page columnist of Mother Jones, The Los Angeles Times, Entertainment Weekly, and Glamour magazine. 

    Not only a writer, but an avid reader, Paula continues her role for the American Library Associa-tion (ALA) as the Nat’l spokesperson for United for Libraries, their “Friends of Libraries” nation-al network – a citizens support group who work to raise awareness and much needed funds to support their local libraries.  Paula has appeared as the headliner at the ALA’s annual conference for their Laughs On Us panel the last four years, and to quote Sally Reed, the ALA Nat’l Direc-tor: “…you’d have to come to one of these events to see how adored Paula is by librarians.  We love her and it’s never repetitive.”  Paula has hosted many events to great success, including the Art Directors Guild Awards an unprecedented 4 times.

    The National Endowment for the Arts recently requested Poundstone to sit down for a chat about the art of comedy and her career.  Take a listen:
