Yes, 2020 has felt like the longest year ever. But October and November are almost here, which means that it's almost Halloween and Dias de los Muertos time. So, at El Camino Cantina's Sydney locations, it's marking the occasion with a Day of the Dead and Halloween Fiesta.

From Tuesday, October 20–Saturday, November 7, El Camino's The Rocks, Manly, Miranda and Entertainment Quarter eateries will be getting in the celebratory mood in a number of ways. The tastiest: a two-hour food and drink package, which'll see you eat your way through tortilla chips and salsa, buffalo wings with blue cheese mayo and guacamole, chargrilled chicken fajitas, and churros with chocolate and caramel sauce. Costing $89 per person, it also includes margaritas both frozen and on the rocks, plus house beer and wine, and soft drinks. And, you'll get a gift bag, too.

If you're more interested in inventive margarita flavours, a heap of new varieties will be on offer — in 15-ounce glasses for $20 and in 24-ounce glasses for $24. Sip your way through Devil Chilli (watermelon, chilli and chilli salt), Walking Dead (passionfruit), Ghost Drop (blueberry) and Poison Apple (sour apple) types at all stores, or grab a tasting paddle of four for $30. At The Rocks, there'll also be six other kinds on offer: Skittle Bomb, Mad Scientist (grape), Sour Strap (strawberry), Snake Bite (raspberry), Whizz Fizz (orange) and Potion of Love (lychee).

Also, depending on the day of the week, there'll be something else on the bill as well — new taco flavours on Tuesdays, super-spicy buffalo wings with limited-edition habanero and teriyaki sauces on Wednesdays, and $20 fajita and marg combos on Thursdays, for instance.

On Saturdays at The Rocks, DJs will also spin tunes — including on Saturday, October 31, when you're encouraged to dress up, obviously.
