Hi Kids

Well, this is my last post before the day itself so I just wanted to wish you all a very merry Christmas for Tuesday! And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, then I hope you enjoy the happy vibes at this time of year. Be good to each other!

Also, just to give you a heads-up that next week’s post will be on Thursday instead of Wednesday as I will be in too much of a turkey coma to write anything on Christmas Day.

Deep Freeze at Cosmo

The last weekend of 2012 sounds like a good excuse for a party to me!  On Saturday, December 29th, McLoviin promises the coolest party of the winter at Ciroc Deep Freeze at Cosmopolitan Nightclub (formerly Moon).  iMEGA, New Era and Supatone will be playing all your favourite high energy party hits all night long from 11pm until 3am. Admission is $20 but the first 30 ladies will pay only $5.

 

 

 

 

Tony Bari

If it’s true that there’s no rest for the wicked then I have to wonder what on earth pianist Tony Bari has been up to, as he is keeping very busy over the festive season. First up is a Christmas Eve Christmas Carol Sing-A-Long at Cambridge Beaches from 8pm until 11pm.  On Christmas Day, Tony will be playing all your favorites on keyboard during  Christmas Lunch and Dinner at Beau Rivage.  Lunch is from noon until 3pm at a cost of $55 per person and dinner is from 7pm until 11pm and costs $85 per person. For reservations, call 236-6060. At Cambridge Beaches, on New Year’s Eve, Tony will be performing as a solo pianist at from 8pm until 10pm, followed by the Tony Bari Trio (with Stan Gilbert and Ronnie Lopes) to ring in 2013 from 10pm until 1am. For more details, call 234-0331.

Burns Supper 2013

A stylish start to 2013, the Caledonian Society of Bermuda’s Annual Burns Supper, will be at Tucker’s Point Hotel and Spa on Saturday, January 26th. A Burns Supper is a celebration of the life and poetry of the Scottish poet Robert Burns, author of many famous poems and songs. A few examples include Auld Lang Syne (yes, the one we all sing at New Year), To a Mouse (the phrase “the best laid schemes o’ mice and men gang aft agley” comes from this poem) and Tam O’ Shanter (considered by many to be one of the best examples of the narrative poem in European literature). You do NOT have to be a literary buff to enjoy this (Burns himself was a renowned drunken womaniser), you just have to enjoy cocktails, dinner, poetry and entertaining toasts and speeches. The pre-dinner cocktail reception (cash bar) will be from 6.30pm until 7.15pm, with the five-course dinner beginning at 7.30pm. The ticket price is $85 per person and available from IHind@becl.bm or online at www.ptix.bm. The link to the event on Facebook is here and it sold out last year so don’t delay in getting your tickets.  Details on confirmed speakers and the menu will be at www.CaledonianSocietyofBermuda.com soon.
