After a week and a half of revelry, Halloween is officially over. We're plagued with post-party depression, a wicked sugar crash, and one hell of a headache. Why aren't hangover holidays a thing? WHY?

But at least it's Friday. Which means there are just a few more hours until sweet freedom is yours once again. And if you're adequately recovered, there are plenty of ways to eat and drink your way around town this weekend. Check 'em out after the jump.

Dia de los Muertos Celebration at Talavera Cocina
Didn't get enough ghoulishness on Halloween? Extend the undead celebrations a few more days with traditional Mexican Day of the Dead fanfare. From Friday to Sunday, Talavera will be serving up the holiday's Pan de Muerto paired with a cup of hot "abuelita" (Mexican-style hot chocolate) for $7.50. (Pan de Muerto, btw is a sweet bread baked with anise seeds, orange zest, and fresh orange juice. Its sides are shaped to look like the bones of loved ones lost. Creepy-cool.) They'll also have a shrine where you can pay tribute to Pedro Infante.

Superhero-themed bash at Baru Urbano Midtown
If you wussed out on Halloween and haven't gotten the chance to dress up -- you're in luck. Baru Urbano's newest locale is hosting their opening bash on Friday and Saturday nights. There'll be beer from Wynwood Brewing Company, meaty eats, and other festivities. So now's the perfect time to break out that Quail-Man getup.
