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!
July 5 – 4 p.m. Reggae/ska/rock + beach at the Summer Beach Party on the patio at Puesta del Sol (Playa Bonita). Line up of bands to include Phoenix bands The Hourglass Cats, Clairevoyant, and Ruca, along with La Tomasa Ska Band from Mexicali and special local guests Lost and The Summer. Pre-sale tickets $5 US / At the door $7 US. Proceeds for the Santa Claus Club
July 5 – Banditos! We hear Roger will be in town to strum it up at Banditos under the palapa on Saturday evening. Take note, palapa replacement/fixing work soon to go on at Banditos so they’ll be taking about a month long summer break right after the World Cup final, starting July 13th.
