Mexican B&B Involves Guests In Day Of The Dead Rituals
“The edible skulls are a lot of fun to make and are a delicious souvenir,” said Alessandra Pérez-Cirera, owner/innkeeper of La Palomilla in Roma Norte, one of the hippest and safest neighborhoods in the City. “Dia de Muertos is a very big holiday throughout Mexico when we honor those we’ve loved, and we like to extend that celebration here at La Palomilla.”
Dia de Muertos lasts technically a few days – it begins on October 31st and ends on November 2nd. La Palomilla will have an altar available to guests from the beginning of October through mid-November. “It’s not a spooky holiday. It’s actually quite joyous and lively,” explained Pérez-Cirera.
“Though foreigners tend to remember the day on Halloween because of the skulls and the colorful costumes, so we thought it would be fun to begin celebrations early so that more travelers may experience the magic of our festivities.”
BERTOUX Premium Brandy Launched
BERTOUX Brandy takes its name from Jean Bertoux, a French inventor who had an unforeseen yet transformative impact on cocktail culture. In 1892, he designed a means to modify bicycles and patented a way for a bicycle to elegantly accommodate a passenger. Soon thereafter, the motorcycle roared onto the scene and Bertoux's concept was adapted into what is known to this day as the Sidecar, which also became the namesake for brandy's best-known cocktail.
