What’s Up Peekskill? Vortex, Schmortex.


It’s winter, and its about time winter got around to rockin the cold. But it ain’t lasting long, so you’ll be stripping down for the rest of the weekend. If that’s not your thing, they’re making puppets at Hudson Valley Moca every Saturday in February. And don’t forget, it’s Super Bowl Sunday. So go show a ref what pass interference is and enjoy the game.

What’s Up Peekskill?

So the icy cold don’t stick your tongue on the metal pipe weather is gone, and this spring-like warmth will be gone shortly too. Back to typical cold but not too cold weather. So whether (see what I did there?) you’re bummed out or happy about it, get downtown and wave your hands in the air like you just don’t care. Go build some Lego or play some board games at the library, or sing a ballad to winter at karaoke night, or just enjoy some live music at your favorite watering hole. What ever you do, P-rock it.

What’s up Peekskill? MLK and a Snow day!

Hey Hey P-rockers! It’s Martin Luther King’s birthday and it’s gonna snow. Get your shovels ready, get your civil rights game face on and dig yourselves out from under. Then you can come downtown to celebrate Pooh’s and MLK’s birthdays and all that they stand for. You can also celebrate Peekskill’s first snow of the year. Shovel it if you got it.

Calendar updated!

Hi all.

I was putting out paper recycling on Tuesday night when I realized that I had not updated the Peekskill Rocks 2019 Google calendar. It struck me that I may be putting out paper (a ton of paper recycling after the holidays) and it might not even be a recycling day the next day. Sure enough, I checked the city website and I was a week early. I drove around town the next day and saw many other people with their paper out. I assumed they were Peekskill Rocks fans. This made me a bit happy to see so many Rocks fans, but also sad that I may have let them down with faulty info on the website.

This is a reminder that this website is run by two fellas for free who have very little free time!

Regardless, the calendar is now updated and should be all current according the city’s latest calendar information.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

What’s Up Peekskill? It’s 2019.


Hey P-rockers, it a brand new year with new resolutions to forget about. So let’s hurry up and get a gym membership to use once or twice. How about diet to break in a few weeks? Or… aw, screw it. Let’s just get downtown and party like it’s still new year’s eve.
