THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 9, is the second annual Obscura Day, an international happening where local experts lead tours, talks, and other events on “the curious places in their own backyards.” People get to check out under-the-radar destinations they probably wouldn’t have known about otherwise, and Atlas Obscura — the operation behind the event — hopes it’ll “serve as a vehicle for preservation by exploration.”
It’s an ethic that jives with Matador values. After spending a couple hours browsing the 100+ happenings going down April 9, I wanted to share the ones I most connected with. Some, incidentally, have been written about at Matador in the past.
I can’t make it to any of these myself, but if you’re in the area, I urge you to attend and report back here.
