For a fun, intellectual twist on a night out, South American Explorers holds informal lectures in English each Thursday at 6 pm. Topics range from ways to cope with altitude to planning a trip to the Galápagos. Admission is a nominal $2 for nonmembers, with plenty of popcorn included. They're a great way to meet fellow travelers.

month at the Reina Victoria Pub. Proceedings get under way at 8:30. Reina Victoria at Roca, 170143. www.reinavictoriapub.com.
