Omnivore - Cake to die for (at Death Cafe Atlanta)

Death Cafe Atlanta feeds the soul


You’d probably have to travel to Mexico for the Day of the Dead to find a cake this cool. It was on the snack table at the June meeting of Death Cafe Atlanta, held in Oakland Cemetery last Saturday.

The Atlanta group, open to everyone but requiring a reservation, is part of a national movement. Saturday’s event was mentioned in a New York Times article, “Death Be Not Decaffeinated: Over Cup, Groups Face Taboo.”

Among other reasons, I wanted to attend the event because of my brother’s recent death. He spent the last year of his life cranking up his experience of pleasure, reuniting with old friends and drawing his two children closer to his heart.
