Happy Friday everyone!
- First up, something I need your help with. I am a judge in The Bermudian Magazine’s Best of Bermuda Awards this year in the category of Food, Drink and Entertainment. To get the best representation of Bermuda opinion possible, I need to poll as many people as possible – this is where you come in! Here is the list of categories (by popular demand, here it is in Excel format too) – if you want your opinion heard, please email your nominations, and a brief reason for your choice, to me at ntdiBermuda@hotmail.com. There are a lot of categories so don’t feel that you have to answer every single one – as many or as few as you like. Feel free to pass onto others as well.
- Chris Finsness and Oscar Deuss a.k.a Finny & Grouch will be performing live at Bermuda Bistro at The Beach this Saturday from 10am until 1am. The link to the Facebook event is here and there will also be drinks specials on Heineken ($3), Jager ($5) and Bombs ($7).
- The Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) is looking for new recruits for their Women’s National Team and will have open trials this Sunday, March 6th and nex Sunday, March 13th. This will be from 1pm until 3pm at Berkeley Institute Nets, located on the Berkeley Institute Field. Players will train and compete locally this year and probably tour internationally next year. This is a new team so no experience is necessary and all skills and drills will be taught – here’s the flyer!
- For anyone who has been waiting patiently for Hasty Pudding tickets to go on sale, you can get them from www.bdatix.com now! Here’s the original post with details.
- One of my favourite events of the year, the Bermuda International Film Festival (BIFF), is coming soon! Fellow fans of independent cinema should mark your diaries from Friday, March 18th until Thursday, March 24th. Most films have won top awards at other film festival and some highlights include Of Gods and Men,, Somewhere, The Illusionist, a few Oscar nominees, including Incendies, Barney’s Version, Another Year and Biutiful. Of particular interest of those of us in Bermuda will be the short film, Mr. Happy Man, about our very own Johnny Barnes. This will be showing on Tuesday, March 22nd at 9.15pm and more details can be found on the Facebook Page here. If interested in working behind the scenes, BIFF are also looking for volunteers – just follow the link here for a listing of positions needed. The full film schedule will be published soon on www.biff.bm. Here’s the flyer!
- The next meeting of the Under the Moongate Supper Club will be at Waterlot at 7pm on Saturday, March 19th. Dinner will cost $125 per person with the optional wine-pairing an extra $60. Here is the flyer and here is a copy of the menu.
- In my opinion, there can never be too many costume parties – luckily for anyone who can’t wait for Halloween, Secrets are hosting a Full Moon Costume Party at Ferrari Bar on Saturday, March 19th. From 11am until 3am, entertainment is by DJ D’Nice and D’General. Tickets are $25 in advance only and available from Secrets. Here’s the flyer!
- With a theme of California vs. France, The Great Wine War is the latest twist on a wine-tasting evening. Held at Gosling’s Wine Cellar, this event will be on Friday, March 25th from 6pm unti 8pm and will be in support of the Bermuda Women’s National Volleyball Team. Tickets are $50 and available from firstname.lastname@example.org or any player. Here’s the flyer!
