¡Adios Enero! Rocky Point Rundown!

capones-rundownbannerThis Weekend Rundown sponsored by Capone’s (Ave. Sinaloa)

We’ve got cloudy skies overhead and a slight winter storm watch for the weekend as we wrap up January in Rocky Point (temperatures in the mid-60s or so with sporadic chances of rain). Local restaurants and sports bars are gearing up for Sunday’s XLIX, not to mention those taking in the Phoenix Open, so be sure to pick your favorite watering hole wisely. Following last week’s frenzy of activity, we’re taking a breath as we start to run down the weekend!  Note: Monday, the 2nd, is a bank holiday in Mexico in honor of Constitution Day (Feb. 5th)

Yes, roadwork continues on parts of Blvd. Juarez and PLEASE be careful with pot holes around town particularly after the rain.  If heading to Sandy Beach, Cholla Bay, or spots west we recommended turning at the sign toward Laguna del Mar and then join up with the coastal road just past the train tracks. If heading to Las Conchas or points east, turn left at the first stoplight onto Blvd. Josefa Ortiz de Dominguez – you can double back to Blvd. Juarez just after Sam’s or continue on Blvd. Ortiz all the way to Blvd. Fremont. Watch for detours around town (particularly at the Circle K on Blvd. Juarez near the docks), and remain alert for STOP signs when you least expect them.
