There's no reason to stop the party now. Celebrate Dia de los Muertos with drinks and delightful little sugar skulls at a few venues around town through the end of the holiday, which goes until November 4.

La Cuevita, an old-world Mexican Grotto in Downtown L.A. is honororing the Mexican ritual by crafting a macbre Day of the Dead altar. Complimentary sugar skulls and art supplies will be set up at the bar for guests to decorate, which can be taken home or left on display. There will also be drink deals, with $3 Licor Del Demonio and $3 Dos Equis. The bar is open from 8 p.m to 2 a.m., and the Dia de los Muertos celebration will go through November 4. 5922 North Figueroa Street Los Angeles, CA 90042, (323) 255-6871.

On the other side of town, Border Grill in SaMo will be hosting a Day of the Dead dinner with Corralejo tequila from 7:30 p.m. on this evening. The dinner, which runs $65, will feature dishes like coctel de camarones, huarache de birria, chile en nogales, and Mexican chocolate cake. Each course will be paired with a Corralejo cocktail. 1445 4th St., Santa Monica, CA 90401, (310)451-1655
