Morning all!


Break out the chourico and the malasadas!  June 10th is Portugal Day!


  • Brown & Co. are getting into the spirit with the 2010 World Cup Kick-off Party, this Saturday, June 12th from 11am until 3pm where there will be discounts, refreshments, door prizes and more.


  • Anyone like hockey and/or wine?  If so, get yourselves to the Bermuda Hockey Federation Wine-Tasting Series. The next one is on Friday, June 18th and then on Wednesday, June 28th (before Cup Match), then September 30th and December 2nd and they’re all from 6pm until 8.30pm at Gosling’s Wine Cellar. Here’s the flyer with details.


  • A bit controversial for Bermuda perhaps but Private Pleasures have come up with a novel way of celebrating Father’s Day with their Doin’ It for Daddy Cruise.  This will be aboard the MV Elizabeth on Sunday, June 20th from 9pm until midnigh and will include dinner, oil-wrestling and lingerie shows, and raffle prizes from Private Pleasures. Tickets are $80 and sold in advance only by calling 504-7712 or email PrivatePleasuresDiva@yahoo.com.  Here’s the flyer!


  • A little more serious than the usual events listed here is the 12th Annual College Students Networking Event at the Hamilton Princess on Thursday, July 22nd from 4pm until 8pm. This includes career seminars, industry booths, a speed networking session and prizes and giveaways. More details are here www.businessbermuda.org/csne and the event schedule is here.


  • For all you atheletes out there, SheROX is coming to Bermuda! SheROX is an all women’s sprint distance triathlon series and the SheROX Bermuda triathlon consists of a 0.8K (0.5 mile) swim, a 20K (12.4 mile) bike, and a 5K (3.1 mile) run. This will be on Sunday, November 14th at 7am at the Fairmont Southampton – for more details or to register, please see www.sheroxtri.com/overview-6567.html.  Here’s the flyer!


  • I just found out that on Wednesdays, the Jasmine Lounge at the Fairmont Southampton host a Chocolate Extravaganza!  This costs $15 per person and is on from 9pm until midnight. It goes without saying that I will be going to this as soon as I possibly can – if anyone needs a chocolate buddy to go with them, just give me a shout!  If you knew about this and didn’t tell me, you are now on my List of Enemies!!


  • Elbow Beach have released their June offers with a special nod to Father’s Day. I wish I could afford to send my daddy for a facial but it would cost around three times the normal price for him. Sadly, as the years have gone by, his face has spread to the rest of his head since his formerly flyaway hair, um, flew away.. Happy Father’s Day Dad!  Here’s the flyer for the rest of you!

Ha, ha, the chicken was diagnosed with depression?! How can you tell? She just looked a bit down in the beak? I wonder how long she was cooped-up for before recovering.. Anyway, I am egg-static that Lily is okay now, even if the last line of the article made me laugh until tears came:
