We took in the Dia de los Muertos activities at La Villita with our friends Emily and Samuel. Below are photos of the altars constructed there - other events included a parade, dancing, crafts, food, and concerts. We caught Making Movies in the amphitheatre (hey STL, they're going to be at Plush at the end of the month- check them out!). SATX is so wonderful in the fall -- so many things going on, it's as if we all emerge from the reverse hibernation the Dantean, freaking invincible summer forces us into ready to partake and par-tay.
|Alter by a local high school sculpture class. Weird and wonderful, no?|
|Kinda creepy statue.|
|Luke is standing in front of the fryer the tortillas are plucked straight out of and stuffed with goodies. DELICIOSO!|
|Shrimp kebabs with Sriracha (for him) and not-so-hot-sauce (for her)|
|Emily and Samuel, cheers!|

|Would that I owned these twin pink Vespas!|
Later that day: Dinner at Tribeca di Olmos with this handsome fella. Target for cleaning supplies. (after the ecstasy, the laundry). Couch time for Nashville (love it but that show needs a kick in the arse) and a disappointing SNL.
Scallops over wilted spinach, caramelized onions, and butternut squash risotto. Dessert was Nutella panna cotta. All of my favorite components in one meal.
Favorite little nugget.
|Clem's first time wearing shoes for any length of time; my first time wearing this hat.|
|The bass player also plays with Luke occasionally. This trio was fantastic.|
