The hazy lazy dayz of summer are in town, along with prowling humidity and a few gusts of wind from time to time. Aaah, July in Rocky Point. Yet, apparently it’s something to sing about as there are a least two singing competitions coming up along with acoustic nights and the regular rocking around town with local bands. Enjoy the summer and let’s run down the weekend!
