Halloween FRIDA Style!

28 Oct

Que pasa FRIDA TACOS fans,

It’s hard to believe that we’re just a few short days from Halloween. In honor of one of the year’s most popular holidays, we thought it would be fun to shoot out a few festive ideas…FRIDA style, of course. Both our TACOS and Mexican Cuisine restaurants will be celebrating All Hallow’s Eve and we encourage you to fill up your trick-or-treat bags with taquitos, burritos and churro desserts!

Now for all you Melrose locals, we recommend participating in the legendary West Hollywood Carnival. Just minutes from our restaurant, it packs the streets with nearly 500,000 people, dressed in every type of costume imaginable. There will also be live concerts and shuttles (so you can avoid the parking issues on Santa Monica Blvd). FRIDA TACOS will be open until midnight on Halloween and we recommend coming in for a hearty “pre-party” meal (or if you need some late night food to recover).

On the Brentwood side of town, the Country Mart (which houses our FRIDA TAQUERIA shop) will be hosting a family-friendly event on October 30. Running from 3-6p, it will have ghost stories, candy giveaways and plenty of plump pumpkins for photo opps. Just like every year, it’s a great Halloween event that trick-or-treaters of all ages can enjoy.

If you happen to live near our Westside Pavilion location, there are also a ton of fun events planned right inside the mall. Nearly every store will be handing out candy from 5-7p on Halloween night, making it a fun and safe alternative to knocking on strangers’ doors. We’ll have plenty of treats cooked up in the food court too, including our famous FRIDA churros and flan!

And let’s not forget the day AFTER Halloween. Dia de los Muertos is a big tradition in Mexican culture and our FRIDA Westwood restaurant is already gearing up, with special sugar skull altars and cobweb decorations. That Friday of November 1, we’ll be welcoming in both Muertos partygoers and festive Halloween fans who want to keep the momentum going. And make sure to ask about our “Blood Red” Margaritas, before calling it a night!
