banditos-630x495 ROCCCCKKKK!  Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!This weekend’s rundown sponsored by Banditos

We are gliding through the summer, and find ourselves already in mid-July.  It’s a time that while there may not be as many weekend events per se, evenings are stunning for beach walks or boat cruises and our nights are kept hot with live music all over town! Oh, and let’s not forget the increasing humidity.  Let’s get things going and take a look at summer! Oh, and we don’t have word on if the Tiburones are headed to playoffs yet…..though last night’s 23-8 finish against league leaders Marineros of Ensenada probably won’t help – ouch!
