NEW ORLEANS (press release) – On Thursday, November 3, Hotel Peter & Paul will host its Dia de los Muertos Dance Party and Fundraiser in the church, featuring music by Juan Tigre, Los Gatos del Sur, and Los Guiros along with festive Mezcal cocktails by Bacchanal. Come and dance this special day away in style and glamour, with all proceeds benefiting the ISLA organization, an immigration services and legal advocacy organization that defends the rights of immigrant communities and advocates for just and humane immigration policy.
