Día De Los Muertos is coming up and Moe's Cantina (155 W Kinzie St.) is ready to party!
From Thursday October 31st to Saturday November 2nd beginning at 5pm, Moe’s will be forgoing any Halloween parties for their annual Día de los Muertos celebration. Chicago native David Bozic will have his art on display while the whole restaurant erupts in a weekend-long party. There will be 20 for $20 street tacos, $20 Pollo con Mole, and loads of Mexican candy! Get in the spirit with one of Moe’s newest potions, the Cazuela. Made from an entire bottle of tequila, this large-format cocktail serves up to 15 people and contains dry ice for a spooky smoking effect making it the concoction of the season. Moe’s Mojigangas are leading the processional from 5-9, and a visiting artist will be face painting on Saturday from 5-9PM.
A two-day festivity, Day of the Dead demonstrates love and respect for deceased family members. In cities and towns throughout Mexico, celebrators adorn themselves in colorful makeup and costumes, host parties, and make offerings to lost loved ones. Moe’s prides themselves on their Northern Mexican heritage and looks forward to celebrating their roots with the City of Chicago.
