As that evening progressed, to at least a handful of us who are familiar with the spiritual artistry of one craftsman bursting with love for Puerto Peñasco, realized that this blessed facility really, really needed one of his works of art to insure a constant blessing over all who tread the threshold of the San Peregrino Cancer Center…
In the Malecon, just around the corner on Calle Ulloa (the first street encountered after entering the Malecón) is a unique little seashell art emporium called Made in Puerto Peñasco. It occupies a small space at the rear of a compact step-up patio area flanked by the Scooby Shack hot dog and curio stand and next door to Viva México, a local favorite taco eatery.
With 17 of the 20 available exhibit spaces sold for the first event and a steady stream of customers and visitors from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM last Saturday, the inaugural Mermaid’s Marketplace held in Rocky Point’s Shrimp Park can be considered nothing short of a success.

Saturday July 7, 2012 was a memorable night of charity for the Sonoran Resorts and City of Peñasco DIF (Family Development Program) and we posted a lot of photos yesterday showing many of the nice folks who participated in the Las Vegas style casino evening and helped raise $5,000 for that well deserving effort.

Before he was 20 years old, Curly had played with local bands throughout Arkansas, Texas and Oklahoma until he was discovered by an Asylum Records-signed rock band newly forming by the name of Jo Jo Gunne. Two of the members had just come over from the recently dissolved rock band Spirit. From their eponymous debut album, a #10 hit in England, “Run, Run, Run” was spawned. That record peaked #27 in the U.S. Jo Jo Gunne toured the U.S. and Europe several times and released three more albums before breaking up in 1974.
To truly appreciate this event is to understand that the word “Taste” in this moniker is used in its full nuance from the word “Sabor” in Spanish which refers to much more than just the taste of food. It idiomatically encompasses all that makes a place, a thing, or an atmosphere endemically and invitingly pleasing to ones senses, like its color, its culture, its art, its people, its music, its dance, as well as its traditional foods and drinks.
With this understanding, may you go forth and fully enjoy the cultural as well as the culinary flavors of colorful Puerto Peñasco, Sonora Mexico at the 5th Annual “Taste of Peñasco”! It all starts at 11:00 A.M. and runs until 5:00 P.M. on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at Plaza del Camarón (Shrimp Plaza) located on Benito Juarez across Fremont Street from City Hall.
