Seattle in Memory, a project from a long ago CHS contributor, will host a Day of the Dead gathering Saturday night to remember the dearly departed “goth coffee shop” Aurafice:

A vigil for our beloved goth coffee shop. On the Day of the Dead, before you party, remember our long lost cafe. We encourage you to bring your memories to share, and any mementos you’d like to leave in tribute.

Portland-based Stumptown took over the former Aurafice space in 2007.

Saturday’s planned gathering starts at 8 PM. Wear black.

Hey, if anyone has any ideas for vigils, send them my way – [email protected]. I’m hosting the Aurafice vigil because it was a place dear to my heart and I have friends I know would show up. So I’m definitely open to hosting more if folks are interested and will attend.

To Dr. McWeeberton and genevieve – please send in your memories of Pistil and Penny & Perk! – seattleinmemory.tumblr.com

Nostalgia is death.

[…] We don’t know what the good people who used to haunt Aurafice Coffee would have thought of it all — but you can ask their restless spirits at this Day of the Dead gathering. […]
