Mwah, mwah, mwah to you all!
In case you’re wondering, I am sending you kisses in observance of Lips Appreciation Day! This is probably a holiday invented by lip-balm manufacturers but let’s go with it anyway:
- It seems like there is a bit of a Harvard invasion of Bermuda going on right now. As well as Hasty Pudding Theatricals, who are performing Commie Dearest this week, The Harvard Krokodiloes, Harvard University's oldest a cappella singing group will be performing at Blu tonight. Performance times are 7 until 7.20pm and then 8.20 until 8.40pm. Blu have also extended their Early Bird Special until March 31st so if you dine before 7.15pm, your two-course meal (starter and main, or main and dessert) is $29.75 per person (plus 15% gratuity) or $34.75 for all three courses. Let me know if you’d like the flyer.
- Coming soon to City Hall Theatre is Magic Fest 10. I have never been to this before but it is being billed as Celebrating 10 years of the beautiful Art of Magic – a Family Event. Featured artists include Puck, Chris Capehart and Will Roya, alongside the best of Bermuda's magicians and variety artists. This will run from March 26th until March 28th and tickets are now on sale at bdatix.com – $35 for adults and $25 for children under 18.
- Anyone still looking for a way to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day tomorrow?? Lemon Tree are kick-starting the festivities with Guinness, Irish Whiskey and green beer from 9am(!), as well as a traditional Irish breakfast and lunch.
- I have heard a few of you complaining that the BIFF website is harder to navigate than last year. In that case, you might be interested in this site, set up by the wonderful Jenni Kenny, which is a bit more user-friendly and has links to the trailers: http://www.thejennikennymovieshow.com/The_Jenni_Kenny_Movie_Show/BERMUDA_FILM_SCENE/Entries/2010/3/5_Bermuda_International_Film_Festival_2010.html

You have to read the part about his breakfast experiments – I’m really hoping he’s being ironic! Hysterical regardless:

Hope you're all enjoying the extra hour of daylight as much as I am!
