“This January has been quite a year,” heard earlier today – and, as a matter of fact, it has! Ready to dive into February and, oh yes, the whales are back! While there’s no polar vortex taking its toll on the area (sorry family up North), folks are still opting for sweaters during our brisk mornings and nights, and seeking out sun-filled beach walks. It’s Super Bowl weekend in Rocky Point, meaning Saturday kicks off with the 2nd Annual Seafood Fest “Fish Bowl”, then punting the action to favorite watering holes for the big dance on Sunday, and a little overtime on Monday with BooBar’s Annual Off-Road Poker Run. Let’s run down the weekend!
