OCHO Presents: Dia De Los Muertos


  • OCHO at Hotel Havana 1015 Navarro Street San Antonio, TX, 78205 United States (map)

Día de los Muertos is a vibrant Mexican cultural tradition of celebrating deceased loved ones during the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day (November 1) and All Souls’ Day (November 2) and coinciding with Halloween. The beautiful and soulful holiday is widely celebrated throughout San Antonio. Age-old customs are evident in colorful displays and altares (altars) set up throughout the city. Family and friends of the deceased create these altares, dedicating them to the spirits of their loved ones. Candles, brilliant flowers and photos of loved ones are arranged among incense and ofrendas (offerings) like toys, drinks and favorite foods. Special delicacies such as traditional Mexican mole sauce, tamales, the ritual pan de muerto (bread of the dead) and lustrous sugar skulls are prepared for the offering. Processions to cemeteries are organized, all-night vigils are held and satirical poems, called calaveras (skulls), are read.

We invite our neighbors, relatives, and friends to enjoy a special holiday food and drink menu prepared by Chef Edward Villarreal to celebrate those who have come before us. The menu includes:
