Thursday is the Day of the Dead!

Celebrate and commemorate this special holiday at XICO.

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican ancestry living in other places, especially the United States. It is acknowledged internationally in many other cultures. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.  Wikipedia

Bring a picture of your dearly departed to add to XICO’s altar and light a candle in their honor.

Enjoy special dishes by Chef Kelly Myers, a special cocktail with hibiscus, pineapple and mezcal, and Mexican wedding cookies for everyone!
