August Special – Paint On the Patio with Robbi Firestone!
Whether you are a tourist in Santa Fe wanting to experience something uniquely New Mexican, or a local in need of a mini staycation, a 15-minute drive from our historic plaza is all it takes. Indulge all of your senses at Buffalo Thunder every Thursday in August!
Join renowned artist Robbi Firestone for a two-hour Paint on the Patio session under a gorgeous portal situated alongside the hotel’s swimming oasis, and nestled against the elegant Red Sage restaurant. This creative respite from everyday life provides a physical, mental and creative “time out.” Easels, paints, brushes and guidance are provided by Ms. Firestone, who encourages attendees to break the rules and paint according to their instinct and inspiration. Best of all, the class is a non-intimidating way to release one’s inner artist in a sophisticated setting.
The resort’s Sommelier, Laurie Catizone has curated a mouthwatering list of viniferous offerings by the bottle and by the glass. Thoughtfully chosen and well-priced, adding some liquid inspiration to this experience is highly recommended! Also, Executive Chef Eric Stumpf presents scrumptious appetizers to accompany the sips and strokes. (Try the shrimp flatbread!)
I highly suggest a night of it by booking dinner at Red Sage after the class. The scallop appetizer– cooked to plump and succulent perfection – presented atop a bed of parsnip puree is sheer delight. Entrees range from locally sourced lamb to farm-fresh vegetables from the area.
If the painting class, dinner and wine are still not quite enough, book yourself a room and stay over. Some rooms even have balconies and / or fireplaces. Check rom rates here. A great solo timeout, couple getaway, or girls-night-out!
Intrigued? Why not make it a family affair at the Pool and Paint Party on August 27. No better way to bid summer farewell in the Land of Enchantment. Call the resort for details!
