Each year, one of the tell-tale signs of launching into a new season of good spirits and live music in Puerto Peñasco is Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers’ January Jam! Yes, that would be this weekend! Plus, January also means it’s time to warm up with the annual Chili Cook-Off at Playa de Oro RV park. It’s our first (US) three-day weekend on the shores of Puerto Peñasco, so let’s run down the weekend!
In case you missed the boat, the MV Astoria of Cruise & Maritime Voyages will return to the area on Jan. 20th with upcoming cruises starting on Jan. 20th and again on the 31st. You can still be part of this first CMV cruising season out of Puerto Peñasco (and we’re hoping for more), check availability and pricing at: https://us.cruiseandmaritime.com/mexican-cruises
Paint & Sip @ Duke’s Wednesdays 12 to 2pm at Duke’s Restaurant. US$ 20 per person + 1 mimosa or sangria!
