It is said that the veil between the worlds of the living and the dead is most transparent as Fall shifts to Winter, and spirits of the dead return to visit. Fearful of these wandering spirits, some people wear masks to fool them into believing that they too are from the other world. Others leave food on their doorsteps to placate hungry ghosts and dissuade them from entering the house, while others celebrate the lives of loved ones who have passed away, welcoming them home with flowers, candles and food.
We welcome spirits from the worlds of both the living and the dead with a special offering, brewed in honour of the traditions that bind us. On Saturday, October 31st, Vancouver Mariachi band “Las Estrellas” will be here to serenade spirits passing through. 7pm onwards…A free beer to those in costume.
