October 24th, 2012
The Internet Gods were not smiling down on me yesterday but I’m hoping for a little more luck today! The new-look website should be available by the end of today but, don’t worry, you’ll still be kept up-to-date no matter what version of the site is up. Here are the latest Bermuda events:
Now that summer has officially ended, Lemon Tree are trying to empty out their fridge and would like us to help this Friday, October 26th! If you attended any of their Random Animal in the Park Parties this summer (Pig, Fish or Cow in the Park), then you simply have to wear your tshirt to get 2-for-1 drinks all night. If you didn’t get one already, you can buy one for $25. The All in the Park Party will also be the last Lemon Tree Happy Hour of the season and will run from 5pm until midnight.
Another fond farewell as the Fairmont Hamilton Princess are also finishing up their Happy Hour for the 2012 season and their final one is also on Friday, October 26th.
Due to its popularity at the weekend’s Bermuda Documentary Film Festival (Bermuda Docs), there will be one more chance for you to see The Queen of Versailles on Friday, October 26th. The extra screening will be at BUEI at 6.30pm and more details on the film are available at www.bermudadocs.com. Tickets are $15 and available at Oceans Gift Shop or by phoning 297-7314.
