More Day of the Dead Fun
Filed under: 11211, Greenpoint, Greenpoint Brooklyn, Greenpoint Magic, Williamsburg, Williamsburg Brooklyn
Those of you who are in search of more Day of the Dead fun in north Brooklyn are in luck: I have two more events to pass along to you. Here they are!
First up, Huitzilli will be serving up chocolate and churros (imagine a cinnamon flavored cheeto and you have the general idea) Sunday, November 1st, from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.. While you’re there be sure to check out some of their great Day of the Dead wares. Here are a few highlights.
Sugar skulls galore.
And of course I would feel remiss if I didn’t mention this Porkysesque bit of mirth. CAVEAT: Previous link may not be safe for work.
Check it out!

Try and come by for our annual Dia de los Muertos holiday at our coffee bar where we honor our passed family and friends with food, drinks (e,g, new Azteca mex chocolate/espresso shots), decor, and more. Pass flyer on to your friends!
Although the official celebration is Monday afternoon after 6pm, the coffee bar will have the traditional ofrenda (altar) loaded with pictures and mementos of lost loved ones this weekend til next weekend. I’ll be working Saturday early afternoon til 3pm and Sunday morning til 1:30. Try our tamale plates (w/ elote/Mexican corn) and mexican mocha IF you haven’t been by yet.
I have tried the Mexican mocha. It is nothing short of amazing. Coupled with their tamales you have a winning combination!
