Let's hope that today was just a blip and that winter really is over. In any case, it was wonderful to have a weekend like that – it's been far too long! Anyway, lots coming up over the next few weeks:
Any arty-types amongst you might be interested in Impressions from Life: Defining American Impressionism at the Bermuda National Gallery on Thursday, March 25th. This is a lecture by Lynn Marsden-Atlass, Director, of the Arthur Ross Gallery at the University of Pennsylvania. She will examine the aesthetic, social and technological changes that forged this new art movement and illustrate its growth. The reception is at 5.30pm, followed by the lecture at 6pm, and the cost is $10 for members or $20 for non-members.
If you’re into golf, this will suit you down to a tee! <Tumbleweed rolls past> Sorry, I’ll get my coat. Anyway, details on the Ross Blackie Talbot Charity Classic are on www.rbtcharitygolf.org. Corresponding events will run from Thursday, April 1st until Wednesday, April 7th and since its beginning the charity has raised in excess of $2,500,000 for over 75 Bermudian charities.
Golfers will also be pleased to hear of the first annual Little Venice Group Golf Classic on Friday, April 16th. Again, this is a charity one, with proceeds going to benefit the Haiti relief programme. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Back by popular demand, the Cambridge Beaches Murder Mystery Night will take place on Saturday, April 17th. At $95 per person, the price includes complimentary canapés/a welcome drink on arrival at 7pm, 3 course dinner seating at 8pm, and the interactive show with music. For anyone who doesn’t feel like going home afterwards, rooms are available at a special rate of $199 per couple per night, inclusive of breakfast. Dress code is “Dress to Impress”.

Anyone looking for a unique dining experience on a Monday evening might be interested in the Wild Card Chef’s Table at Beau Rivage. This gives you the opportunity to dine in the kitchen, watching the chefs at work while enjoying a surprise 5-course dinner based on fresh seasonal produce, with an optional flight of wines. This used to be offered to parties of 8-12 but has now been opened up so that singles, couples and smaller groups can all join together. Cost is $95 per person. Contact email@example.com for reservations. Here is the flyer – View this photo

MONKEY NEWS: Sadly, the article wasn’t quite as interesting as the headline lead me to believe – still, at least the photo is funny:
