Dia De Los Muertos, Halloween and more beer on the calendar this week
Despite its ongoing fight with the city, El Diablo will be hosting its annual Dia de los Muertos Celebration on Tuesday, October 30. And that's not the only spooky event on the culinary calendar -- there are plenty of Halloween parties that should be a real treat.
El Diablo is celebrating the Day of the Dead tomorrow.
Here's a taste of what's on the menu this week -- and if you know of any other Halloween events, feel free to share them in the comments section below:
