Día de los Muertos Ball

When: Sat., Nov. 5, 6 p.m.-12 a.m. 2016

Organized by hairstylist, salon owner and out-of-the-box artist Rene Roberts, the Día de los Muertos Ball adopts a naughty S&M theme this year. Launched in 2010 at Jump-Start and now hosted in the historic confines of the Guadalupe Theater, the spectacle weaves elements of drag, vaudeville, pageantry and performance art into a wild blend that benefits area food pantries, scholarships and organizations ranging from Inner City Development to Metropolitan Community Church. Hailed by its organizers as “the best Día event in SA,” the costumed shindig includes complimentary grub and Dos Equis beer but also invites “picky” guests to bring their own bottles.
