Day of the Dead Celebration

I'll be participating in a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) show sponsored by Art Outlet. Dia de los Muertos is a time to celebrate and remember our ancestors and friends past, and a happy reminder of our own mortality, a chance to live each day fuller! 

Where: Almaz Restaurant 
1212 U Street, Washington, DC 20050
1/2 block from U Street metro stop
When: Oct 31 & Nov 1
7:30pm - midnight-ish
Who: Featuring live altars and Dia de los Muertos themed artwork by local artists
Live music from American Skinner (folk rock), Highballers (country), 
and DJ Uncle Eric, (electronica)
Make a Sugar Skull with artist Heather Schmaedeke

Dress in costume if you want and be sure to bring an offering to one of the live altars! Drinks available at the restaurant bar, so bring a friend, it should be a rollicking good time!
