Hoosegow Charcoal Restaurant is hosting their annual Day of the Dead celebration, and judging from their past events, this will be a night of immense feasting and profuse partying.
The Day of the Dead, or Dia De Los Muertos, is a Mexican holiday which focuses on remembering passed loved ones in order to help support their spiritual journey. The gatherings bring together family and friends, and generally encompass traditional ‘sugar skull’ face painting as a way to internalise mortality, which has become increasingly popular in Australia.
This celebration of life will see the moody restaurant transform into a space where all the staff and diners alike are invited to dress in traditional wear and indulge in a set Mexican menu, and topped off with their infamous ‘Bloody Hoose’ shots again this year.
Adding to the ambiance, you’ll be treated with live music by Latin band La Bomba, so you can pop your dancing shoes on, get your groove on AND get your feast on all in one venue.
The funky eatery has also previously won the Restaurant & Catering SA Award for Excellence Finalist 2015, in the New Restaurant Suburban South & East category, and earned a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence in 2016, 2017 and 2018. So you can expect a meal worth dying for.
Although a charcoal restaurant usually suggests meat, meat and more meat, they accommodate for both vegetarians and vegans – so basically inclusive for those who wish not to participate in the realm of the actual dead.
The event will be held on Friday 2 November, with entertainment from 6.30pm to 8.30/9pm. Bookings are essential, so round up the team and give Hoosegow a call on 8332 6599.
