ALL HALLOWS’ EVE AND DIA DE MUERTOS

NOVEMBER 1: Dia de Muertos themed Corner Bar at Highland Park Improvement Club, starts at 6 pm:

Draft beer, wine and special cocktail Chili-infused Margarita, as well as Mexican Tequila shots.

DJ Rich brings the Funk from 6-7:30 pm, then Accidental Rhino will perform vintage acoustic jazz from the 1920′s and 30′s!

In the spirit of Día de Muertos, we will have an Altar de muertos upon which you may place a small memento of someone who has passed that you would like to remember. This can be a (small) photo, a poem, or just their name. Between sets of the band (8:30 or so) people can come up to the mic and share a short (30 seconds) remembrance. This can be merely saying their name, a humorous story, or whatever you would like others to know about this person. It should be a celebration. Barry, our master of ceremonies, will read something for you, if you desire.

Parental Guidance – Kids welcome until 9 pm. There are toys and games set up on tables. Parents, please be aware of your child’s activities. Chasing games are discouraged.

(HPIC is at 12th/Holden)
