Summers in Santa Fe, N.M., are punctuated by art markets that are a boon to collectors and an opportunity for serious oohing and ahing from throngs of visitors. The newest, the 3-year-old Santa Fe International Folk Art Market, is a melange of textiles, pottery, basketry, carving and more by 100-plus artists from around the world. But there's a larger mission behind the event, which will be held Saturday and Sunday: to sustain world folk art and folk artists.

The city of Santa Fe may soon require pet owners to restrain their dogs, cats and ferrets in special pet seats or with seat belts while in a moving vehicle. The ordinance, endorsed by the city's public safety committee, would also require that animals in open beds of trucks and cars be restrained enough so they can't leap out of a window. An animal shelter director said dog seat belts as well as portable pet carriers would fit the bill.

In English, "Go fly a kite" is a pejorative expression meaning, basically, "Get lost. " In Japan, however, the term "tako kichi," which roughly means "kite crazy," is meant as a compliment, referring to enthusiasts who are passionate about kites. The Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, N.M., is exploring the art, history and sport of traditional Japanese kites in the exhibition "Tako Kichi: Kite Crazy in Japan," which opens June 9 . More than 200 kites from an inch to 12 feet are on loan from enthusiast David M. Kahn.

The state Court of Appeals upheld a Santa Fe ordinance that requires the capital city's largest employers to pay their workers at least $8.50 an hour. The appeals court affirmed a lower court ruling that the city had the power to set a minimum wage for private employers that is higher than the $5.15 minimum mandated by the state and federal governments. The ordinance was adopted by the Santa Fe City Council in 2003.

THESE were our kind of nosebleed seats. The best seats at the open-air Santa Fe Opera theater start about 7,000 feet above sea level, seven miles outside this fabled tourist town and just below the peaks of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. My wife, Joyzelle, and I were shut out of those -- they cost as much as $170 each and were sold out months in advance of our July visit.

Perhaps nowhere but in trendy Santa Fe is one likely to stumble across a Monday-morning taste test of 13 varieties of organically grown Mexican dried beans. Then again, perhaps no one other than gardener extraordinaire Elizabeth Berry could persuade 11 of Santa Fe's trendiest chefs to show up and rate the flavor and marketability of beans at any time on any day.

SANTA FE, N.M. - It's fair to call me a chocoholic, but it wasn't until a trip to Santa Fe that I realized I'd never had the good stuff. What was supposed to be a casual late-December exploration of this New Mexican cultural hub wound up becoming a full-on chocolate extravaganza in which I dragged my husband, Jay, to a new exhibit, "New World Cuisine: The Histories of Chocolate, Mate y Más," at Santa Fe's Museum of International Folk Art, and...

Santa Fe Sage Inn in New Mexico's capital offers a spring getaway for $74 a night plus tax. The inn is in a convenient location, too, within walking distance of the Santa Fe Artists Market at the Railyard each Saturday or a shuttle hop to downtown.  The deal: I have written about this inn before because its prices are good in a city where you easily could spend a lot more. It's a basic motel-style building with a heated pool and inexpensive parking ($5 a night). Breakfast (waffles, pastries, bagels, yogurt, fruit, eggs, cereal and more)

For months, California fans of the Dunkin' Donuts chain have posted messages and videos online to gleefully trade rumors that the shops — a favorite of East Coast cops and night owls — would soon be back in California. The company finally announced expansion plans in the West, but they didn't include the Golden State. "We don't have a time set for California," said John Dawson, chief development officer for Dunkin' Brands. "But when we enter, we're going to enter strong and it'll be something very few people will miss.

In an unfortunate coincidence, days before "The Arts of Survival: Folk Expression in the Face of Disaster" was scheduled to open at the Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, N.M., raging wildfires forced the evacuation of nearby Los Alamos nuclear lab. "There was still smoke in the air," curator Suzanne Seriff said. An interactive section where visitors can talk about their experiences with extreme weather was added to the exhibition, which explores how folk artists helped their communities recover from four recent natural disasters: the Haitian earthquake, Pakistani floods, Indonesia's Mt. Merapi's volcanic eruption and Hurricane Katrina.
