In Mexico, November 1 is "The Day of the Dead," a time for celebration, cemetery visits, costumes, parades and, for some people, the intake of copious amounts of beer and tequila. This year, at least in Saratoga Springs, we're talking beer and vodka as part of a Death Wish Coffee Beer & Vodka Dinner.
Boca Bistro is collaborating with Deathwish Coffee, Olde Saratoga Brewing Co., and Albany Distillery to create the 6:30 p.m. dinner that will feature four beers brewed by Olde Saratoga Brewing Co. and Albany Distillery's Deathwish Vodka, all created using what is billed as the world's strongest coffee.
Go here to see the menu for the four-course dinner. Reservations, which are required, are $65 plus tax and tip and may be made online or by calling the restaurant at 682-2800.
Boca Bistro is located at 384 Broadway in Saratoga Springs.
