OMG! (Or, in Spanish, ODM!) Menudo to play Playland this Saturday night!

Ricky Martin might be long gone, but fans will be piling into Rye Playland this Saturday when the latest manifestation of Menudo comes to town.

I’m not exactly a huge Menudo fan, but there could be tremendous comedic incentive for going if the group decides to bring back these winning outfits for no apparent reason.

I still happen to think Playland’s crowning musical achievement was the music video for “Fantasy,” which features former Bedford resident Mariah Carey and the late, great ODB.
