April 11th, 2012
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter – I know I certainly did! I may have indulged a little too much as I am starting to become the shape of an Easter egg. Anyway, here are the latest Bermuda events:
- Due to popular demand, The Tartan Panda Extravaganza, the Caledonian Society of Bermuda's Scottish-Chinese menu at Chopsticks has been extended until the end of April – full details and menus can be found here!
- Chewstick's T.W.I.G.S. Youth Open-Mic is back this coming Saturday, April 14th at The Chewstick Neo-griot Lounge. T.W.I.G.S. (True Wisdom in Growing Souls) aims to empower Bermuda's youngest artists (under-18s) to take ownership of their talents, and gives them a positive social outlet that can help them to grow and connect with each other. This will be from 6pm until 9pm and creative young people who can rap, sing, dance, play an instrument or write poetry, and are interested in performing, are encouraged to get there early to sign-up. Entry is $5 (additional donations toward the Chewstick Foundation are appreciated) and soft drinks and snacks will be available for purchase. Adults are encouraged to attend – but ONLY if accompanied by a young person in their lives. This will be on the second Saturday of every month so future dates are May 12th and June 9th. For further information contact 292-2439 or firstname.lastname@example.org – here's the flyer!
- Bermuda Ocean Explorers and Keep Bermuda Beautiful are hosting a Marine Debris Clean Up at WhaleBone Bay, Ferry Reach, St. George's on Sunday, April 15th. Following a short presentation at 2pm sharp, the cleanup will continue until 4pm. KBB and sponsors will be providing gloves and bags and there will be food, snacks, juice, water and music. SCUBA Divers will be in the water and anyone interested in joining the dive effort is asked to contact them in advance. If the weather is bad at noon that day, then the event will be cancelled but you can confirm by calling 599-5080 or following them on Twitter @bdaoceanexplore for live updates – here's the flyer!
- The Frog and Onion Pub is 20 years old this month and invites you to join in the celebrations! On Sunday, April 15th they will have prices rolled back to what they were in 1992, a Dunk Tank with Carol West, Andrew Dias, Alan Burland, Chris West (with all proceeds to Bermuda Sloop Foundation), Frog Face Painting with an appearance and photo op from Frog Mascot Jean Paul, Marshall the Magician MC and show, live music from Wayne Davis, a Puppet Show by Cornerstone from 4pm until 5pm, and a raffle for great frog prizes. On Sunday, April 22nd, there will be another appearance from Jean Paul the Frog, rolled-back 1992 prices, Marshall's kids' show, Birthday Cup Cakes, and a raffle for great Frog prizes. Finally, on Saturday, April 28th, there will again be rolled back 1992 prices, a raffle and appearance by Jean Paul as well as a Frog race for Bermuda Arts Centre at Dockyard and music from Tony Brannan and Tony Cox.
