Sponsored this week by La Lotería Cantina & Grill on Blvd. Fremont
Notice the flags and colorful banners donning the streets of Puerto Peñaso? That’s right, it’s September, mes patrio (month of the homeland), in honor of Mexico’s Independence! On the night of September 15th the city comes together to honor the “Grito de Dolores” (the 1821 Cry of Dolores calling for independence), replete with the traditional replicas of ¡Viva! ¡Viva! ¡Viva! September also generally marks the return of shrimp season, set for around the 20th this year, and of course the city has settled back into a familiar after summer routine…with a dab of humidity hanging on.
What’s up in town? Let’s get to it and rundown the weekend, plus be sure to take note of upcoming important dates for the Fall!
