If getting away to Mexico is just a little out of reach for your schedule, this Saturday’s Mission Ole benefiting Trinity River Mission just might be the answer. Held at Chicken Scratch and The Foundry, it’s an open-air affair tailor made for an evening where blue jeans, boots and vests are the attire to cozy up around fire pits with mariachis playing in the background and loads of food provided by Chicken Scratch and Smoke.
And if you just haven’t had enough Halloween fun, you’ll want to have your face dolled up by one of the incredible face artists in celebration of the event’s “Dias de los Muertos (Day of the Dead)” theme.
