Dios De Los Muertos with Screaming Mimi's

On Sunday night, we wrapped up our long Halloween Weekend with a party with Screaming Mimi's for Dios De Los Muertos. It was a great way to celebrate the end of a hellish month for the Mimi's staff (Halloween is their busiest season), and we started out with an intimate Mexican dinner at Mimi's, laid out on a table that Christina had decorated for the occasion. Some of the store's besties showed up for the occasion including Lynn Yaeger, Mr. Mickey and Drew from Paper, Richie Rich, and our favorite party uncle, Benjamin Liu (yay!!!). Everyone was out in their finest Dios De Los Muertos attire, and Richie (who was dressed as a little Piggy), helped out by providing face painting for those who didn't already have it. Afterwards, we all headed over to 1OAK, where Mimi's window wizard Eric Vidmar acted as our special guest host, and all the gorgeous Mimi's girls took turns DJing. Here are some pictures that Tony took of the evening.
