Dinner De los Muertos
Day of the Dead also called "Dia de los Muertos," is a celebration of life and of those who have passed. Although this celebration is associated with the dead, it is not portrayed as a morbid or depressing time, but rather a period full of life, happiness, color, food, friend’s, and fun.
Our celebration takes place on Friday the 1st of November, in the tucked away and bewildering surrounds of The Back Loft, Dublin 8. From dusk will we be inviting you and yours to join us for an evening of sharing a plentiful feast with the deceased.
We are drawing savory inspirations from New Orleans and Deep South dishes as well as sweet inspirations from Mexico to create our Menu.
New Orleans inspired canapés
Irish wild bird gumbo
Creole dish of duck, with mango marmalade
Pan de muertos (Mexican sweet dead bread)
Home made sugar skulls
Mademoiselle Fabiana will be channeling spirits and reading our guest’s tarot cards on the evening. There will also be a live moody musical performance from Rufus Coates and the Blackened Trees.
As a special treat for our guests we will have some whiskey tasting on the evening from Teeling Whiskey. Brewed locally by brothers Jack and Stephen who are keen to support art and culture in Dublin. www.teelingwhiskey.com
As part of the evening’s celebrations we hope to see our guests disguised as the living dead, in costume and decorations of their choice. We are confident this evening of food, festivies and performance will inspire your taste buds and imagination.
We do hope you can join us on the evening to welcome the souls of the dead.
Location: Back Loft Gallery, Dublin 8.
BYOB (we are encouraging bring your own bottle of wine or beer)
