is this funky cfoutput query trick possible?

this query is generating dates:

January 15 8:30AM
January 15 12:30PM
January 17 8:30AM
January 17 1:30PM
January 20 8:30AM
January 20 11:30AM
January 20 1:30PM

any way to put a space between the dates w/o reworking the entire thing too drastically:

January 15 8:30AM
January 15 12:30PM

January 17 8:30AM
January 17 1:30PM

January 20 8:30AM
January 20 11:30AM
January 20 1:30PM


<cfquery name="rsTimes" datasource=#MM_connCalArts_DSN# username=#MM_connCalArts_USERNAME# password=#MM_connCalArts_PASSWORD#>
SELECT count(*) as slotsremain,  timeslots_theater.timeslots, mix_theater.cities_id, cities_theater.cities,
mix_theater.timeslots_id, mix_theater.mix_id, timeslots_theater.id, exact_location FROM timeslots_theater,
mix_theater, cities_theater WHERE timeslots_theater.id = mix_theater.timeslots_id
AND cities_theater.id = mix_theater.cities_id AND cities_id = '#rsTimes__MMColParam#'
group by timeslots
order by timeslots asc
</cfquery>

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

<cfoutput query="rsTimes" group="timeslots">
    <li><A HREF="application.cfm?#Trim(MM_keepURL & Iif(MM_keepURL NEQ '',DE('&'),DE('')) & 'mix_id=' & rsTimes.mix_id)#" class="craig">#dateformat(rsTimes.timeslots, 'mmmm d, yyyy')#&nbsp; #timeformat(rsTimes.timeslots, 'h:MM tt')#</A> <br>

<cfoutput query="rsTimes" group="timeslots">
    <li><A HREF="application.cfm?#Trim(MM_keepURL & Iif(MM_keepURL NEQ '',DE('&'),DE('')) & 'mix_id=' & rsTimes.mix_id)#" class="craig">#dateformat(rsTimes.timeslots, 'mmmm d, yyyy')#&nbsp;
        <cfoutput>
              #timeformat(rsTimes.timeslots, 'h:MM tt')#</A> <br>
         </cfoutput>
<br>
  </cfoutput>

just asking but why would you have a link to application.cfm? Seems sort of useless since application.cfm gets called on each request anyway....

wait I messed up I read the output wrong....
<cfset pastdate=dayofyear(rsTimes.timeslots[1])>
<cfoutput query="rsTimes">
<cfif pastdate NEQ dayofyear(rsTimes.timeslots)>
   <br>
</cfif>
<cfset pastdate=dayofyear(rsTimes.timeslots)>
    <li><A HREF="##">#dateformat(rsTimes.timeslots, 'mmmm d, yyyy')#&nbsp; #timeformat(rsTimes.timeslots, 'h:MM tt')#</A> <br>
  </cfoutput>

It also helps If I get the function right....dayofyear()
