Baroque Spanish architecture, cobblestone streets, the arts and cultural events are just a few of the things that come to mind when I think about San Miguel de Allende.
What else comes to mind? Day of the Dead events across Mexico, like Cena Negra, the one at Hotel Matilda in San Miguel de Allende.
The Black Dinner Serenade will be held on November 1 at Hotel Matilda’s Moxi restaurant. A creative event with soulful tunes at the hotel’s annual Cena Negra (Black Dinner).
This event will feature three female stars of Mexico’s culinary scene today: Chef Gabriela Ruiz Lugo of Carmela y Sal, Mexico City’s hottest restaurant, will prepare a delicious multi-course menu that will be paired with Day of the Dead-themed music such as the classic La Llorona (The Weeping Woman). Fernanda Prado, the proprietor of Gelatoscopio, the capital’s ice cream boutique sensation, will whip up desserts. Bertha González Nieves, co-founder of Casa Dragones and the first woman in Mexico to be certified as ‘Maestra Tequilera,’ will pair the courses with Casa Dragones Joven and Blanco tequilas.
The playlist for the 7th annual Cena Negra, Black Dinner Serenade, will be a mix of classic and emotional Mexican songs that create a dramatic atmosphere for the event.
