November 1 and 2 are the Days of the Dead when the souls of the departed return to join their families and friends in the land of the living. The ritual/festival, which originated in the prehispanic past, is celebrated in Mexico and certain parts of the United States. (Photo by Tim Boyle/Getty Images)

    Jose Garces captures the essence of Mexico City everyday at his University City restaurant Distrito. But on November 2, the popular restaurant amplifies Mexican culture and cuisine to another level with a Day of the Dead bash.

    Cut out of work early and join the fun with two floors of music, face painters and food and drink specials.

    The party begins at 2:30 p.m. and lasts all night. Or come for a special cocktail reception and Herradura tequila dinner starting at 8 p.m.

    A portion of proceeds from the day will benefit Puentes de Salud, providing ob/gyn care for Latina women.
