Want to hear something scary? Christmas is exactly one month away today! If you celebrate Christmas, I really hope that you are much more organised that I am. Lots of festive events coming up:
- Agape House, in partnership with the Corporation of Hamilton, presents the 16th Annual Tree of Lights, a memorial tree which stands in front of City Hall. The Tree Lighting Ceremony is tomorrow at 6pm (**UPDATE: 5.30pm) and will include performances from Saltus Junior School Choir, Menuhin Foundation, Bermuda Regiment Band, Bermuda Island Pipe Band and a special appearance by SANTA CLAUS!! Here's the flyer.
- Also happening tomorrow, The Centre Against Abuse are holding a Black Friday Sale. This will take place at the Jack King Building in the Botanical Gardens between 10am and 6pm. The deal is that you pay $30 and then fill a bag of apparel and household items. There will also be baked goods for sale. For further information, call 292-4366. Here's the flyer!
- Quick update on the Santa Parade on Sunday, the roads will be closed from 12 noon and the parade starts at 5pm – I updated the original post here.
- The third Under The Moongate Supper Club is coming up at Beau Rivage on Tuesday, December 7th. There are a couple of different options for this one – the main restaurant table will cost $105 (including grats, excluding drinks), the Chef's table in the kitchen will cost $128 (again, including grats, excluding drinks) and if you're interested in the optional wine-pairing, add on $40. As always, spaces are limited and it's first come, first served, so RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org. Here's the flyer!
