Celebrate! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!


This weekend rundown sponsored by John & Kathy Witt – Watch for John in upcoming HGTV HouseHunters International!

Summer is heating up and we’re running smack into the U.S. 4th of July weekend! Boulevard Juarez coming into town is now open in both directions (sidewalk and curb work still going on)! Monsoon season has begun, evidenced here by rising humidity – still, we’re only expected to get about .01″ of moisture in the coming days (sweat wise, I believe that is per person).  So, let’s rundown the weekend.

Sadly, both the U.S. and Mexico are out of the World Cup but we’ve still got baseball.  Tiburones are in town tonight (July 3) to wrap up the series against Mineros of Cananea.  This also marks the end of Tiburones regular season home games, and currently they’re in third behind Hermosillo and Caborca. Game time tonight, July 3rd at 7:30 p.m. We’ll stay tuned for play-off games.  Check the schedule at Rol de Juegos 

July 4th – Skins game at The Links!  1 p.m. 18 holes x $25 (+$10 for prize pool) Friday Happy Hour all day from Beverage cart at The Links

* Speaking of golf, cool off at The Club at Laguna del Mar with their Holiday Round 18 holes for $40 US all weekend!
