August 17th, 2011
So, am I the only one in Bermuda not on strike right now? Right, this must be remedied – I demand MORE chocolate, MORE ice-cream and MORE jelly-babies or I will down tools at once!! It's sad that it has come to this – I have actually been on a go-slow for years but nobody has noticed.. Anyway, here's what's going on in Bermuda:
- Are you a law student or professional? If so, you are invited to the Law Students Association of Bermuda's Annual General Meeting and Reception at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club tonight from 5.30pm. A short address will be given by Chief Justice Richard Ground. This is also your opportunity to come out and vote for next years Executive Board and mix and mingle with fellow law students and legal professionals. To RSVP, send a text to 536-6223 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by 3pm today. For more information, see their website at www.lsabermuda.com.
- Barmuvinjam invite you to Weakness for Sweetness, Ol School Reggae Night on Friday, August 19th at Ferrari Bar. From 10pm until 3am, D-Nice and YGS will be taking you back to the 80s and 90s with songs by Sanchez, Garnett Silk, Wayne Wonder, Luciano, Beres Hammond and many more. Entry is $10 before 11pm and $20 after – here’s the link to the Facebook event!
- Looks like you guys just can’t get enough of that neon as Docksiders will be raving one last time on Saturday, August 20th. The Back to School Rave will be from 10pm until 3am, with Glow Sticks, Finger Lights, DJs Einstein, Smokey and Chels, drink specials, (featuring $5 for Corona, Ketel One, Gosling products) and free jello shot giveaways! Tickets will be $20 on the door and $10 in advance. Here's the flyer and here's the link to the event on Facebook.
- Nature is often an artist’s best muse, so it seem only fitting that Somers Gardens in St. George’s will be celebrating Art in the Park on Sunday, August 21st (rain date is August 28th) from 11am until 3pm. This even is sponsored by the Corporation of St. George's and all artists and musicians are invited to participate. It’s free and you can register by emailing email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The event is open to the public who can also attend the Olde Towne Market later in the day (2pm) on Water Street. Here’s the flyer and here's the link to the event on Facebook.
- Based on the success of the Brit School in London, the founders of the Makeda Trust have brought a similar concept to Bermuda by creating an educational alternative for creative young people. Throughout the summer, in a 9-week summer workshop, over 40 talented youths have been working hard in areas such as MC, DJ, radio and music production, technical theatre and well-rounded arts education. You can see the fruits of their labours in the show To Live is to Dream, to Dream is to Live at the Ruth Seaton James Centre for the Performing Arts on Thursday, September 1st and Friday, September 2nd. This showcase will feature Lion King musical scenes, To Kill a Mockingbird, Song Medleys and all are backed by a live youth band and their instructors. Showtime is at 8pm and tickets are $17 for students aged 18 and under, $27.50 for adults, $44 for Patrons (special seating) and are available now from www.bdatix.com. Here’s the flyer!
- The Bermuda National Gallery (BNG) at City Hall have announced the opening of their Autumn Exhibitions, featuring four unique experiences: On Screen: Global Intimacy, curated by Tumelo Mosaka and organized by Krannert Art Museum, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; Re-Interpreting the European Collection, featuring work by local and international artists James Cooper, Louisa Flannery, Charlie Godet Thomas, Titus Kaphar, Sunell Lombard, Lynn Morrell, Alan C. Smith, Sharon Wilson; New Acquisition Highlights 2007-2011, featuring work by Carl Broemel, Bessie Gray, Kathy Harriott, Donald Kirkpatrick, Bill Ming, Chesley Trott, Henry Liam Ward; and William Collieson: A Retrospective. These exhibitions will all be open to the public from Friday, September 2nd and admission, as always, is free.
- In order to address the issue of boys falling behind their female counterparts in most measures of literate abilities throughout the industrialised world, Bermuda Reading Association presents Boys and Literacy on Saturday, September 3rd. Presented by Dr. Frank Serafini, this workshop will run from 9am until 3pm in the Poinciana Room at the Fairmont Southampton. Tickets are $75 and are available from www.bdatix.com.
- Ever felt like you could have handled a volatile situation at work a little better? Jan Fraser will present the workshop How to Handle Emotions, Conflict, and Confrontation in the Workplace at Bermuda Chamber of Commerce Boardroom, Albouys Point on Thursday, September 8th from 9am until 1pm. The fee is $197 and you can register by emailing Keyla Grant at email@example.com or calling 292-7279 ext 26.
