What’s up Peekskill? We gots us a new Prez

A whole bunch of interesting things here, P-Rockers. If you can’t help The Jerk figure out why that sniper hates those cans so much on Tin Can day, you can wait a day and usher in POTUS #45. Yes he IS your president (like it or not). If that doesn’t do it for you, then you can appreciate a squirrel, or answer your cat’s questions. Yes, these are the days! Seriously, what is happening to our country when we appreciate a questionably intelligent rodent that gets run over by cars and loses its nuts? When you’re done with all that, get your butt downtown and Rock out.

Thursday, Jan. 19 – Happy Tin Can Day!

What’s Up Peekskill? Tattoos and bare butts!

Feeling naked when you’re nekid? Perhaps a tattoo can give you some peace of mind on Nude day. You’ll probably get naked to get that tattoo on your butt anyway! And Peekskill’s own Speakeasy Tattoo is just the place to do it!

Thursday, July 14 – Happy Nude Day!

And perhaps appropriately, it’s also Pandemonium Day — It can get crazy with all those nekid people running around.

And to our French friends, who helped us during our own revolution, sorry about the Freedom Fries thing… Salut! Happy Bastille Day!
