Morning Kids!


Yippee, Friday at last!  Lots of things going on in Bermuda over the festive season so I don’t want to hear any of you complaining about being bored!  Here’s what’s coming up:


  • Dig out your best red and white ensemble, as tonight is’s Annual Christmas Party!  This will be at Rumba’r (Victoria Grill, formerly Latin Restaurant) from 8.30pm until 12.30am. This will include a special holiday performance, Latin and contemporary music by SalsaMania DJs, plus a raffle draw at midnight (prizes include dinner vouchers, dance class vouchers, and surprise gifts from the family and its partners) and an optional dress code of red and white.  As always, this event is free and open to all – for more information, visit or email  Here’s the flyer!


  • Jiketsu Martial Productions is proud to present the 3rd Budo Cup Championships tomorrow at the BHS Gymnasium. Doors open at 9am and the tournament starts at 10am. Registration costs $25 and admission costs $10 for adults and $5 for children. This event will feature some of Bermuda’s most promising young martial artists and successful participants will be scouted as potential members of the WKF Junior National Team representing Bermuda at future World Karate Federation Championships. Proceeds will be in aid of Jiketsu Foundation Award of Excellence, the Youth Martial Arts Program and support of the Coalition for Protection of Children – here’s the flyer!

  • I was just thinking that there doesn’t seem to be as many NYE parties as last year, when BAM, three more come along at once!  First up is Rock the Beach at Bermuda Bistro at the Beach who are offering an open bar from 10pm until 11pm, complimentary hors d’oeuvres and party favours, champagne at midnight and music by DJ Rusty G and NewEra.  Doors open at 9pm, early bird tickets are $40, standard tickets are $50 and they are available from The Beach, Mambo, DJs or event reps – here’s the flyer!


  • If you want to party like it’s the end of the world,  then you might want to join iMega, YGS, King Jyrus, DJ Smokey and DJ Aztec at Pier 6 for 2012: Party Like There’s No Tomorrow.  From 10pm until 3am, there will be special giveaways, a champagne toast at midnight and much more.  Tickets are $60 and available from Jazzy Boutique or Kit & Caboodle –  here’s the flyer!
