With caution and attention to social distancing, the weekly “Connections” happy hour is back on the Rocky Point social calendar. Though it sounds like it, Connections is not a singles group. It’s for anyone who wants to meet other non-nationals living full- or part-time in Rocky Point.

Connections will take place on the Puesta del Sol restaurant patio at the Playa Bonita resort at 4 p.m., every Thursday.

With the passing of Dick Steele, who spearheaded the Connections group activities, there was concern that the popular weekly Gringo gathering would fade away. Then I, Cholla Charli, was unanimously voted (I think it was a vote of two) to take up the mantle and see that “happy” continues to rein in Rocky Point.

Due to Covid restrictions, and so everyone can meet more people, those attending the happy hour will be encouraged to stand-up and mingle, rather than sit shoulder to shoulder in a long row of tables as has been the practice.

Masks will be encouraged, and everyone is asked to consider their personal health risks and act accordingly.

For more information, please e-mail me at: chollacharli@keller.net or just join us any Thursday at 4 p.m. at Playa Bonita’s Puesta del Sol. Salud!
