¡Noviembre! We are in that small stretch between Halloween fiestas along with Day of the Dead commemorations, before we round the corner toward the Rocky Point Rally (this year Nov. 11 – 14). Yet, this weekend continues to rock…rock ‘n roll to be exact. The Black Moods, who have played across local venues for nearly a decade, are returning to our shores for an Atomic Weekend at Banditos. As Josh, Chico, and Jordan continue to skyrocket their music careers, we’re pleased they continue to come back to sink their toes in the sand with us! Don’t miss it – Fri / Sat at Banditos – plus Sunday acoustic show @ BooBar.
The Vida Joven fundraiser on Nov 6th at Margarita Mermaids is also a great plan for the weekend, be sure to reserve your spot early. Don’t forget the charanga soap box derby on the 6th – with a parade in town on the 5th! The Mermaids Arts Market is back this Saturday, plus much more …what lull before the Rally?
NOTE – Border hours at the Lukeville/Sonoyta crossing continue to be 6 a.m. – 8 p.m.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has announced that beginning Nov. 8th, the “non-essential” travel limit when crossing back into the U.S. at land border entries will be relaxed some. If you recall, the “only essential” travel limit has been in place since mid-March 2020! This new announcement means that foreign citizens (i.e. not US citizens or US permanent residents) will be able to cross back into the U.S. for tourism purposes, for example, but only with proof of Vaccine. This impacts Mexican citizens who have not been able to travel over the land-entry to the U.S. for quite some time, as well as Canadians or quite frankly of any other nationality (other than U.S.) who haven’t been able to cross back into U.S. at the land entry. U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents have not been impacted by the travel limit at the border land entry – NOR has proof of vaccination been required – this does not appear to have changed. Stay alert for updates.
