4,833,329 and still counting

Yes, it’s that time of the year again, and I hope that you’ll join me, La Palapa, Mexican Cuisine & Mezcal Bar and LACU – Latin American Cultural Union and Carnegie Mellon Dietrich College of Humanities & Social Sciences for these events. I’ll also be making my 1st public return as DJ Gringa Morena since the beginning of the pandemic for the event on the 2nd. In addition, there are still a few more events coming up with my longtime friends and associates at the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) at Pitt! After the enormous exodus of Souls lost in the past 18 months, I think we can all agree that trying to honor everyone as they deserve is an impossible task, but nonetheless, we must try, and your participation and help with this is so appreciated. Ordinarily I have always bought all of the materials and flowers for my ofrendas, but after an expensive and difficult year, I’m asking that anyone who is able to bring live marigolds, mums, sunflowers or calla lillies (extra points for adding pink cockscombs or purple irises!) to contribute to the beauty of our ofrendas to drop them off at La Palapa on the 30th or the 31st if you attend the LACU – Latin American Cultural Union Meet and Greet. Don’t forget your small photos as well if you want them to be a part of the ofrendas. It will be so good to see everyone again after missing last year for safety reasons. xoxoxxoxoxo’s
