You'll also get complimentary entry into their Top 40, open-air Video DJ Nightclub hosted by the internationally infamous MC Super Dave.  For anyone worried about getting home afterwards, there will be SeaExpress Fast Ferries from Dockyard until 10:30pm.  Here's the flyer.


  • The second in the Bermuda Hockey Federation Wine-Tasting Series is coming up on Wednesday, July 28th at Gosling's wine cellar, just in time to start off your Cup Match weekend.  This time, all the wines are from the Southern Hemisphere and there will be a competition to see if you can guess the grape and year.  Tickets are $50 each and are available from Grainne_Sweeney@artexrisk.com – group discounts are also available. Drinks start from 6pm until 8.30pm so leaves enough time to hit some of the other parties afterwards!  Here's the flyer.


  • Can the new-look Reggae team dethrone the reigning Soca Champs?
