Around Town in San Felipe

Around Town in San Felipe

San Felipe Spring is upon us! The weather has been so truly amazing, a pleasant reminder of why we have chosen the Baja as our home! Some town happenings included a few different St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, Corned Beef and Cha Chas at the Ocotillo Lodge gave everyone a good ol’ Irish treat, and benefited the ZAPP Spay/Neuter Project in San Felipe. Last year, an amazing new restaurant opened up, Blowin’ Smoke, and they featured an AUTHENTIC Reuben sandwich for St. Patty’s. Los Arcos’ Happy Jackass had a fest as well, including local musicians, Tom O’Neill and Alan Mayov, AKA 2AM, with some traditional Irish drinking songs. The duo has announced that they will soon be a trio: joining them is Mexico Living’s own Lisa Shannon. This will be something different in San Felipe. Feedback has been positive about having the addition of a female vocalist to one of the local musical ensembles. 2AM can be seen at the Lighthouse on Saturday nights and Los Arcos’ Happy Jackass on Sunday evenings. If you haven’t been by the Jackass lately, make sure you stop in there and see all the renovations Cliff has been making to the landmark joint. He’s done an amazing job in a short time, refinishing the floors and restoring the booths. San Felipe SCORE Baja 250 March 14, Blues and Arts March 28, Charity Golf Classic Celebrity Invitational March 29. You’ll read more about these events next month. Press time requires an early deadline for contributors, so many of these events have not happened yet! But rest assured that MLG will not let you down! Be sure to visit us online for more up-to-date information on these and other events in San Felipe and other cities in Northwest Mexico. SAFETY FIRST in Mexico, I cannot believe all the drama and propaganda the press is making about Mexico. If foreign media reported every incident that happens in the U.S. (like the church shooting in Illinois), are we to say that the ENTIRE U.S. is unsafe? It’s ridiculous to say the least. I personally would like to encourage our readers to email your local news to Geraldo Rivera to share your opinions, and what you believe about traveling to Mexico. See you around town!
