The weekend weather looks great for today's Creative Grove. DJ Lucha and I spin it in this heat. DJ Lucha will go unmasked and spin from 2 to 4 ish. I've got the sundown set . Afterwards, maybe I'll treat him to some rice balls and zepoles at Holy Rosary's La Festa Italiana (the link is from 2007 - but the event runs this weekend .

It's fun filled with games, an hourly 50/50, and terminates with the Super 50/50 raffle drawing.
