Snow Moon? Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

This febrero has taken a turn for friiio this week, so be sure to keep warm inside and out.  Possibly it’s because of February’s full “Snow Moon” (Feb. 8th – first super moon of 2020), or just a reminder we are indeed still in winter.  Stay warm at your favorite watering hole this weekend, or cozying up to live music around town…and let’s run down the weekend as all you lovers get ready for Valentine’s Day!

Upcoming Virtual US Consulate dates @ City Hall Feb.20th / March 12th / April 2nd  12 pm – 1 pm   For more info or to direct questions, please contact:
