Potpourri Page—Short Shorts of All Sorts

By in Our Blog with 0 Comments

To handle the hodgepodge of dangling subject matter, we invented the Potpourri Page to appear on our blog site and in Jim’s monthly newsletter to cover those short subjects that deserve updates, follow-ups and reminders to keep you out of trouble, make you 46% smarter, and 11% more likely to lead the conversation in a social gathering. June is definitely one of those Potpourri Page months. Read on…

Things are a bit different this year, but all changes or for your benefit and enjoyment! 2014_CM_poster_proof_FINAL

  1. The most important change you need to know about is that you’ll need a Circus Mexicus 2014 wristband to enter the Thursday night and all-day Sunday events. Any valid wristband will work, whether it’s the Friday or Saturday General Admission (GA) or above. If you plan to purchase your tickets after you arrive Rocky Point, make sure to stop at Will Call to get that done before the fun starts Thursday.  (Will Call schedule below)
  1. Next, please note that PH Naffah’s legendary Hot Dog and a Smile charity cook out has moved from Friday night to all day Sunday, still at JJ’s Cantina as always. Remember, you’ll need your wristband for the Sunday event.
  1. If you ever planned to purchase tickets for both Friday ($25) and Saturday ($45), this is the year to do it. More bands than ever before will be laying out rock and roll like a bass drum beat from JJ’s Cantina in Cholla Bay to Banditos Amphitheatre in front of the entrance to the Sonoran Resorts Spa and Sea on Sandy Beach.
  1. RCPM have graded the large space across from Banditos (in case you live in a cave and have no human friends, Banditos was formerly Chango’s and The Hut and now belongs to the Roger Clyne family! This means they will be performing in the exact location they used to play for several years that the fans really enjoyed. Since it is graded and shaped to bring out the natural amphitheatre rise, you can bring your chairs, beach or lounge, and get down with the boys!
  1. Because of the anticipated attendance this year, Will Call times and locations are of critical importance to everyone. They are:

Wednesday 6pm – 8pm @ Banditos

Thursday 4pm – 10pm @ JJ’s Cantina

Friday 1-3pm @ Banditos and 6 – 10pm @ Main Stage Gate

Saturday Noon – 3pm @ Banditos and 6-10pm @ Main Stage Gate

This means you can kick off the 4 day celebration of rock and friendships right from the “git-go” with everybody’s favorite country ensemble, The Hickman-Dalton Gang at JJ’s Cantina.
