Calavera offers special food, drinks, and decor during its week-long Día de los Muertos Festival.

For its annual Día de los Muertos celebration, Calavera is transformed with elaborate marigold decorations and festive altars of flowers and candles. Inventive cocktails and special dinner options combine both ancestral and more modern elements. Chef Gustavo Romero offers rotating à la carte menu specials that highlight heirloom corn. Come in costume to the Halloween party, complete with a DJ, face painters, and complimentary mezcal tastings. Info and reservations: 510.338.3273 or here
