Memorial Day tips in Rocky Point 2018!

Memorial Day Weekend is once again upon us! If you’re planning a trip to Puerto Peñasco with friends or family over the holiday, let us at RockyPoint360 share some tips on what’s going on, where to go, and what to do (plus, check out the Weekly Rundown for extra tidbits)! And if that’s not enough, for Rocky Point fans who have been missing a certain watering hole in the mirador area – we’re excited to hear that Manny’s Beach Club is reopening this weekend! Yes, THAT Manny’s!

Numerous bars and restaurants will be showcasing live music over the weekend, plus the chance to enjoy the rockin’ house bands or take a stab at karaoke over at Southside Jillz on Calle 13.

and announcing……………..!  Everyone’s favorite seafood & pizzeria joint in town is opening its very own Viper Room music venue upstairs – that’s right Al Capone’s on Ave. Sinaloa isn’t all about rocky rolls, damn good pizza, and grouper anymore – let’s give it up for the new stage – kicking off this weekend with The Summer!

Plus, music for a good cause –  The beach stage at Wrecked on the way to Cholla Bay will be holding benefit shows all weekend long, with proceeds to go to medical expenses for musician Shawn Johnson who has also graced Wrecked’s stage from time to time.  Take in the music, maybe a beach volleyball game, and cozy yet fantastic  seaside venue, while contributing to a great cause!

Speaking of FUNdraising – how about breakfast?  Here are two opportunities to sink your teeth into paying it forward:

Saturday, May 26th – Monthly Dialysis Center breakfast fundraiser   8 am – 11 am  @ María Bonita restaurant at Viña del Mar Hotel  140 pesos

Monday, May 28th – Charity Pancake Breakfast at Latitude 31   8 am to noon  $6 US  serving up mimosas and bloody marys

Looking to race around or fish?  Make a pit stop at the Rocky Point Speedway on the way to Cholla Bay for your chance to hop in a race car (or ride shotgun) and race around the track!

This is also the final weekend for the Cholla Bay Sportsman’s Club Fishing Derby – now in its 63rd year!  Fishing to take place May 24th – 26th, followed up with a Fish Fry and Awards on the 27th

U.S. Memorial Day

In commemoration of U.S. Memorial Day, the local American Legion will be  holding a Flag Ceremony  at their site in the Mirador  10 a.m.  (formerly Los Juanes / across from Pink Cadillac)

Before you go!  On Monday, don’t miss out on Peñasco’s top trop-rocker Mark Mulligan (well, visiting trop-rocker) who will be taking the stage at Chango’s on Sandy Beach.  Advanced tickets recommended.
