Drink Coffee, Eat Donuts … and Talk About Death

Death Cafe

Chitown Death Cafe is holding their next meeting from noon to 2 p.m., April 14, at the Gracelend Cemetery Chapel, in Chicago. This unique event provides a safe space to discuss a topic that is often considered taboo—death. Whether one has experienced loss or simply wants to explore their thoughts on mortality, this gathering welcomes all perspectives.

Levi Welborn and Deidre Bruno became best friends while working together in the Chicagoland death care industry. Welborn has been a licensed funeral director for 10 years, while Bruno is a licensed cemeterian and has been a prearrangement adviser for more than a decade. Eager to give back to the community they serve and passionate about promoting a “death positive” lifestyle, they have worked together to bring the worldwide initiative known as a Death Cafe to the Chicagoland area. 

The Chitown Death Cafe meets monthly around the Andersonville area and is always looking for businesses it can showcase in return for hosting the events.

Location: 4001 N. Clark St., Chicago. To stay informed on when and where the Chitown Death Cafe will be popping up next, visit them on Facebook or Eventbrite.
