The most interesting Cinco de Mayo party on Alki

Sure, Cactus was jumping (including the heated outdoor area), bonfires were blazing, all that, but the most interesting thing we saw on Alki this Cinco de Mayo evening was the aftermath of a ceremony next to the Alki Bathhouse, and the reception inside. The candle-equipped ceremony altar (photo below) was framed by white columns wrapped with barbed wire and red roses. We weren’t nosy enough to peek too far into the (catered) reception, but saw enough of the outfits (white-on-black “skeleton” shirt, etc.) to speculate — Goth wedding? SUNDAY AFTERNOON UPDATE: Reader reports in a comment on this post that they inquired and were told it was in honor of someone who died.

    we asked – I was just too curious. They said it was for a death.

    That’s a great place to celebrate a life.

    I know someone who also attended a “memorial” there. That might be my own choice. Here’s the rental information:

    I heard this wedding was inspired by the movie: Nightmare before Christmas…
