Celebrate Día de los Muertos — Day of the Dead the Casa Ramirez way with free classes, an altar exhibit and an opening reception. Okay, reception might be too mild a word, Casa Ramirez actually throws a hell of a celebration with Aztec dancers, a procession and traditional Día de los Muertos food (try the pan de muerto/bread of the dead).
Traditionalists, newbies, lookie-loos and the mildly curious are all encouraged to attend (just don’t blame us if nothing else measures up to the Casa Ramirez bash). Gallery owner and Day of the Dead expert Macario Ramirez leads a class on DOD traditions at 10 a.m. on October 29. Viewing hours for the exhibit are noon to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays and Sundays, noon to 6 p.m. Saturdays. Through November 12. The opening reception is 6 to 9 p.m. October 29. 241 W. 19th Street. For information, call 713-880-2420. Free.
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 21. Continues through Nov. 12, 2011
