About this Death Cafe

Hi friends! Our first Death Cafe last year was wildly successful, so we have upgraded to a bigger place in order to accommodate more mere mortals! As with all of our events, we will provide tea & cookies. Please come eat, drink, and be merry about the precious gifts life and death offer us with other member of our special foothill community.
