Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a holiday that is about celebrating and colourfully honouring departed loved ones. Falling in November, Dia de los Muertos is soon upon us.
Las Vegas is doing its own spin on the day, with several Dia de los Muertos-inspired activities:
1) Luxor's Tacos & Tequila, Sunday, 1 November 2009, 12pm-5pm. Partake in a Deadliest Dressed competition and feast on a special brunch and holiday-appropriate drinks. Mechad Brooks from True Blood is hosting this party.
2) Springs Preserve, Sunday, 1 November 2009, 3pm-9pm. With general admission to the Springs Preserve, one can enjoy cultural entertainment and food, as well as decorative Dia de los Muertos altars.
3) Vosges Haut-Chocolat at the Forum Shops, Caesars Palace. Be enticed by Day of the Dead Skulls in solid white, dark, or milk chocolate. Sweets are a part of Dia de los Muertos celebrations, and these Vosges versions are special treats with eyes made to glitter through the use of black sea salt.
