¡Feliz Dia De Los Muertos! Borracha Has The Best Day of the Dead Celebration!
If you have ever looked around at Borracha, you might have noticed by the decor that Día de Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) is pretty important. It’s also very important in Mexico as well–it’s actually the most widely-celebrated holiday in the country, and lasts 3 days, not one. You can refresh on the what of Día de Los Muertos here, while this post focuses on the why.
Day of the Dead: What It’s All About
For those who don’t really understand Día de Los Muertos or perhaps think it’s morbid, then you’re misunderstanding the essence of the holiday. Día de Los Muertos is about remembering loved ones who have passed away and celebrating their legacy, sort of like still celebrating someone’s birthday even after they’ve died because you’re still so grateful and happy that they once existed at all. Therefore, Día de Los Muertos is a way to reconnect with and remember specific loved ones while also acknowledging that those who are deceased were and still are important to someone. left an impact on the world. So, in a way, Día de Los Muertos is also about connecting with the living over that shared sentiment by coming together to celebrate.
Fiesta For the Permanent Siesta
November 2nd is a celebration that Borracha is deadly serious about (pun intended, and also, you’re welcome). The decorations are already in place at Borracha 24/7/365, but they’ll be extra vibrant juxtaposed with the staff’s faces painted with Día de Los Muertos themes. The celebration starts when doors open at 4 PM, and it will start to turn up even more with live music at 7 pm. There’s no football or hockey, so you can focus solely on the souls who came before. Grab one of the Día de Los Muertos (or several) and pour some out for the homies (like a little bit though, and preferably over a napkin. You can totally be a mess without making one).
