Morning all!

First of all, apologies to all the email subscribers, there seemed to be a slight technical hitch and Thursday's post wasn't sent out until Friday.  I haven't had any problems with Feedburner before so hopefully this was just a once-off.  Anyway, lots coming up:

  • On Saturday, July 10th is The 6th Annual Tha Underground Music Awards at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts. From 6pm, there is the Red Carpet Reception with the awards starting promptly at 8pm. After the awards show is the Official After-Party in the reception area, hosted by Dunn Deal Entertainment. Tickets are $30 or $50 for VIPs and available from Sound Stage. Here's the flyer!

  • Start ripping up your bedsheets and practice wrestling lions because Snorkel Park are hosting the ultimate Frat Party, Toga! Toga! Toga! This will be on Saturday, July 17th from 10pm until 3am. Dancing, drinking, and debauchery are mandatory with Top 40 Video DJ OB1, DJ Einstein formerly of G135 and top house, dance, trance DJ Supa J. There will also be immortal contests (no, I have no idea what this means), live entertainment, beer and cocktail specials and best toga prizes. No need to worry if you don't live near Dockyard as there will be a 3.15am ferry to town. The cost is $30 or $20 if you're a member. Here's the flyer.

  • Luckily, toga addicts can get their fix at Snorkel Park because Bermuda Police Rugby Team have changed it up this year! Instead of their usual Toga Party for Cup Match, BPRFC are inviting you to get leid (hee, hee) at their Cheeky Tiki Luau Party! This will be on Wednesday, July 28th from 7pm – there will be a cash bar ($50 for 10 drinks), Hawaiian Games, BBQ, and prizes for the Best Costumes. Tickets are $20 and available from bermudapolicerugby@gmail.com. Rock-a-hula baby! Here's the flyer.

  • On the same night, Snorkel Park Beach invites you to the island's first annual Soca Fete! This will be headlined by a world class line up of renowned Soca entertainers including Buffy (#1 female Soca artist), Traffik (#1 selling Soca Band), Shal Marshal (#1 radio and TV personality) and Super Jigga TC (#1 Trinidadian DJ). The scheduling goes like this: from 7pm until 10pm, you can enjoy an Island Beach Party dining experience (book for reservations), then from 10pm until 1am there is local and international entertainment, and then from 1am until 3am you can dance the night away with local and international party DJs. Fast Ferries available all night. No details of pricing yet but tickets will be available soon island-wide. Here's the flyer.

  • More Cup Match festivities, The Chewstick Foundation presents their 5th Annual Beachfest Emancipation Celebration on Thursday, July 29th at Horseshoe Bay Beach. Beachfest is the biggest free event in Bermuda, with games and sports for all to partake, and performances by the hottest artists, bands and DJs (Dirkistan, De General, DJ Einstein, DJ Chubb, DJ Aztec, and more). All proceeds in aid of the Chewstick Foundation youth programmes which take place in the schools and prisons. Kick-off is at 11am and continues all day and all night. Full details are on www.beach-fest.com.

Hello! It would be really helpful if your “Quick Recap” had links you can click on for more information & contact details. In particular I was looking for booking information for the “Cruise for a cure”. Thanks! B.

Hi Bonnie, this is something I’ve been planning on doing, but to be honest, I haven’t had the time. This is only something I do in my spare time and there hasn’t been much of that lately! In the meantime though, posters with the details are under the Upcoming Event Flyers tab. Also, there is a search function on the website that you can use. Hope this helps!

Okay, I found a bit of time this weekend and added in links – please let me know if you have any problems! Thanks!
