´Twas the night before Christmas and in every casa, socially distant gatherings took place as all asked ¿qué pasa? With pa in his gloves and I in my mask, we looked back on 2020 – which really took us to task. All the piñatas and lights helped brightened the mood, while tamales and buñuelos made for really good food. If you’re celebrating the season with mom or dad, be sure to mask-up for a Feliz Navidad!
Spending the holidays in Rocky Point? Be sure to check out some of the Christmas and New Year’s Eve dinners and offerings below. We’d like to thank everyone for sticking with us this year, and wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021 (because, well…)!
