Finally we have, as always, a traditional OFRENDA ("altar") which is always a part of Day of the Dead Celebrations in Mexico and around the World. This year we'll be RAISING FUNDS and taking donations for the Playing For Change Foundation's Mexican Baja Musical Arts Initiative in Tijuana, Mexico. This program uses free music education as fuel for positive change in impoverished communities. Details here.

Get your face painted and learn a little about how vast and deep Hispanic culture is - eat some "Pan De Muertos" and reflect on what’s important as we mark the Mexican tradition of the Day of the Dead by enjoying the best in life!

As always there will be an amazing AFTER PARTY from 11:30pm - LATE - this year we are very stoked to take over the new and imporoved Smith's Alternative and have programmed some Afro Latin Vibes all night with FunkyTrop performing live and Latin Vinyl Specialist DJ Randy Castilla - DETAILS HERE.
