Morning my little Easter Bunnies!
The end of my chocolate deprivation is in sight – if you're looking for me after midnight on Saturday night/Sunday morning, I am likely to have a chocolate martini and a Creme Egg in hand! I can't wait! Quite a few Bermuda events are coming up this weekend – hope you have fun no matter which option you choose:
- As you all know, this coming Friday is a public holiday, so if you are still looking for something to do tomorrow night, Fantasea would like to invite you to Gosling's Taste of Bermuda Rum Cruise. The tour departs Hamilton at 5.30pm and will last for 90 minutes, during which you can enjoy the view with a Dark 'n' Stormy or Rum Swizzle, as well as a tasting of Gosling's rum and liqueurs. Tickets are $50 per person. For more details, or to make your reservation, call 236-1300 or visit www.fantasea.bm - here's the flyer!
- Another Thursday option is in the Bermudez Room at XL House in Hamilton where Captain Charles Moore, world-renowned investigator in the field of plastics pollution, will be in Bermuda to speak about his book Plastic Ocean: How Plastics Pollution is Threatening the World’s Ocean. Tickets are $20 and the cash bar will be available from 6pm with the lecture starting at 6.30pm. To RSVP, contact Vanessa.Shorto@bios.edu or 297-1880 x204 – here's the flyer!
- Happy Hour at Fairmont Hamilton Princess will NOT be taking place this week but Lemon Tree Happy Hour has moved to Thursday because of the holiday.
- Wondering what to do with that day off on Friday? You can't go far wrong with The Bermuda Department of Tourism and The Chewstick Foundation's Bermuda Good Friday KiteFest from 10am until 6pm at Horseshoe Bay. This event will feature Bermuda's biggest kite competition, family activities, such as an Easter egg hunt, egg & spoon race, marbles and more, as well as performances by Ameina Lewis, Amore Rose, Bermuda Squad, Bermuda Donquili, Big Snipes, Chandra Maybury, Chewslam, Christina Frith Quinn, Djata, Haz, Ishtalupa, Joy T.
