The Day of the Dead Celebration is not to be confused with Halloween since it’s a Mexican holiday celebrated on November 1 throughout Mexico and around the world that remembers and prays for family and friends that have died. Bone Garden Cantina distinctively recognizes this holiday in its restaurant’s colorful interior but officially celebrates it every year since its opening. The 5th annual celebration is on Saturday, November 3, so it won’t get confused or lost in the Halloween celebration.
Bone Garden Cantina is a bit off the beaten path on the West End of Atlanta off Huff Road at Ellsworth Industrial Blvd. where the giant metal sculpture Mariachi guides you into the parking lot. At this point, you’ll know you’re in for a fun dining experience. Enjoy authentic, made from scratch Mexican food, tasty margaritas and a very colorful atmosphere with wait servers — without having to wait in a line a block long just to get your order taken — all discretely hidden away from the masses. Once you’ve found you’ll know what makes this little restaurant different from all other Mexican restaurant out there, besides a way cooler name.
On Saturday, November 3, Bone Garden Cantina will host their 5th Annual Day of the Dead Celebration opening for lunch at noon with food and drink special plus Alma Mexicana traditional Mexican dancers at 3 p.m. followed by live music on the patio at 5 p.m., then señoritas dancing all night starting at 7:30 p.m. And since Mexico celebrates their dead with the making of sugar skulls, you can take one home with you that’s been prepared and decorated by a Bone Garden Cantina staff member when you spend $50 on this night.
