Hi all

My advice to you all this week – wear sunscreen!!  Just trust me..  If anyone else is in a tremendous amount of pain and needs distractions, here is what's coming up:

  • Sometimes it's nice to play tourist, even when you're at home and this looks like a good way to explore some of the cultural heritage of Bermuda from past to present. The African Diaspora Heritage Trail (ADHT) in Bermuda represents significant aspects of local heritage, traditions and customs. This comprehensive two hour tour encompasses fifteen captivating ADHT sites of Bermuda’s Diaspora from the Royal Naval Dockyard to the city of Hamilton. Here is the flyer for anyone who is interested.

  • After taking a break for a few years, Park Party 2010 is back.  Obviously, it didn't always have the 2010 part in the title…  Anyway, this is being billed as the first big party of the summer and is  brought to you by the joint efforts of Tuff Dogs and Off Level Promotions.  This will be kicking off at 5pm on  Friday, May 21st until 2am at Barr's Bay Park and will feature live bands and Bermuda's hottest DJs (Y.G.S. and OB1), Tuff Dogs Shooter Bar, crazy Happy Hour prices from 5-7, food stalls, giveaways, special guests and other surprises. Tickets available soon from Sound Stage, The Tuff Dogs and the Off Level Crew – I don't have details on pricing yet.

  • Tomorrow's Voices Bermuda Autism Early Intervention Centre, who provide Applied Behaviour Analysis therapy to children on the autism spectrum, are hosting a special fundraiser on Friday, May 28th. Hold on to your Manolos girls, as this will take the form of the Bermuda Premier Screening of the Sex and the City II Movie!  There are two different screenings, both at Speciality Cinema, with the premier parties being hosted by Lusso. One will start right at 5pm, with the film at 6.30pm, and the other will start at 8pm, will the film screening at 10pm. They will also be having a raffle, and some of the prizes include two tickets to NYC, 4 to stay at the Princess, free makeovers and make-up from MAC. Tickets are $50, include the movie/party ticket, complimentary drinks, sushi and nibbles, and are available from Secrets in Washington Mall.  Full details are on the flyer here. A great cause and an even better excuse to round up the girls methinks!

The evening will include exotic Indian food, a sneak preview of BEA mini-series aired on Discovery Channel Canada, musical entertainment, Bollywood dances, raffle prizes, exciting Indian vegetarian recipes, and much more.
