Nov 2nd 2018

Dia de Muertos is celebrated on November 2nd and in Mexico is recognized as a national holiday. It may seem odd that we celebrate death with dancing and celebration, but for centuries in Mexico we have honored the remembrance of our loved ones with ofrendas, musica, parades, and drink.

Join us Friday November 2nd for a Dia de Muertos Party like no other! We’re setting up the dance floor with only the best vintage Latin sounds hand-picked, by some of the finest record collectors and selectors from Mexico, Cuba, Brazil and the U.S.

Marz Community Brewing will be on hand pouring a special selection of fresh brews on tap.
