2 fun-filled parties to start the new season in the way that only NWJ! can!

No Way José!, recently named Vallarta's "Best Moderate Restaurant" and "Best Service," is thrilled to be opening for their 4th season, but get ready… you won't want to miss a minute of their fun and fiesta-filled Halloween/Day of the Dead/Season Opening Parties!

Join Hollywood stars and local celebrities on the black carpet on Wednesday, October 31, as the cast of Rocky Horror invades Tu Casa en Vallarta! Come dressed in your Rocky Horror best while a panel of drag queen judges select the best costume. Enjoy dinner and cocktail specials and meet the cast of what is sure to be the musical hit of the year on the Vallarta theatre scene.

ACT II Entertainment's The Rocky Horror Show premieres at midnight on Halloween night at The Palm and runs through December 29. Not going to the midnight show? No problema! Come to the costume contest, enjoy a special Rocky Horror cocktail and savor one of your favorite meals.

To benefit the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter, V.I.P.R. Public Relations presents:

  9:00 pm -  Dinner Seating

Then, just a few nights later, join us on Friday, November 2, for our 2nd Annual Day of the Dead / Season Opening Party.

This year, the night will benefit the Puerto Vallarta Bougainvillea Festival 2013. Who can think of springtime in Washington D.C. without thinking of the Cherry Blossom Festival? Join us as we celebrate the Day of the Dead in Vallarta and start the good work toward transforming Vallarta into THE Bougainvillea city of the world.

Our Season Opening parties are filled with everything you would expect from our lively fiestas; live music, dinner and drink specials, and introducing the new NWJ! Terrace mascot, El Burro José.  

Mexican families celebrate Day of the Dead as an event to remember loved ones whose spirits visit the earth once a year. Although some may view the typical dancing skeletons and celebration of death as macabre, we assure you it is not. The Day of the Dead – El Dia de Los Muertos – marks the time for the dead to return home and visit loved ones, feast on their favorite foods and listen to their favorite music. Family members honor their deceased in their homes with offerings which include photographs, bread, favorite foods, flowers, toys and other symbolic offerings.

No Way José! will, of course, have a Day of the Dead altar. Julie, José Alfredo and the entire No Way José! team invite you to bring a memento that represents someone’s memory you would like to honor to add to the altar. Your Day of the Dead altar awaits your offering!   

Join us for our memorable "Best Of Vallarta" parties that combine the delicious food of Mexico with the comfort of your Mexican Family in Vallarta.

No Way José! is on the south side of downtown at 5 de Febrero 260, just over the Vallarta street bridge on your left heading south from the Malecón. Open 4:00 pm to 11:30 pm. Closed Mondays in September and October.

Reservations are suggested for these events and are available by calling (322) 223-2853 or by e-mailing reservations@nowayjosemx.com.
