Hi Kids!

 

If you have been on the Calendar View section of the website recently, you may have noticed a few changes.  I have upgraded this section so it now includes filtering by categories as well as a calendar-specific search.  It also works dramatically better on mobile devices than the previous version did so please have a play around and let me know what you think.  Also, the Quick Recap below now links directly to the calendar entry for that event – no more searching through the original post to find the details you’re looking for!  All part of my mission to make NTDIB the best resource for finding out what’s going on in Bermuda!  Speaking of which, here are the latest Bermuda events:

 

Tomorrows  Voices

Tomorrow’s Voices, Bermuda’s Autism Early Intervention Centre are hosting the first workshop in their year-long Training Institute tonight.  Applied Behavior Analysis: A Tool Kit for Analysing and Improving Learning and Behavior will be facilitated by Tomorrow’s Voices Senior Therapists, Ms. Emma Martin, BCBA, M.Ed and Ms. Natasha Pedro-Petty, M.A., from 6pm until 8pm in the Sunshine League building at 27 King Street.  The cost is $25 and participants will receive professional Development Certificates for attending. Walk-ins are welcome, or you can RSVP to tomorrowsvoices@northrock.bm or 297-4342.

Hi Kids!

So, it would appear that EVERYBODY wants to be in Bermuda right now!  Not only do we have our Spring Break visitors here to party but it looks like we are also being invaded by Harvard and Duke Universities next month.  Here are some of the latest Bermuda events:

Festival Impressions

First up, a little update on what’s currently exhibiting at Bermuda Society of Arts in City Hall.  In the Onion Gallery, the Bermuda Festival of Performing Arts: Festival Impressions is an exhibit of works inspired by previous Festival performances.  In Studio A is Edwin Mortimer’s first showing of works carried out over 20 years, A Dauber’s Journey, while Studio B is exhibiting Photography by Raleigh International, featuring their alumni’s photographs from their expeditions to Namibia, India, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Borneo.  Edinburgh Gallery is exhibiting Works by Seasons Learning Centre.  All exhibits will run until March 5th.

Morning all!

 

Hope you all had as many delicious pancakes as I did yesterday (although that is very unlikely as I was a bit of a glutton).  Now, for those of you who observe it, we’re onto Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.  I can’t believe that Valentine’s Day, the festival of love and chocolate, is during Lent this year!  :( I think chocolate-lovers who usually give it up should get a special exception just for this one day.  Anyway, what is there to do in Bermuda in Winter?  The answer is LOTS:

 

Pigs and Pinot

Ten Cafe & Bar invite you to a special evening celebrating a rarely available kind of pork at their Pigs & Pinot event tonight from 7pm. Pure-bred Berkshire Pigs are fed on acorns only for the last 100 days to impart them with a unique flavour, are only available for 21 days and the farmer only feeds 100 animals in such a way per year. Chef Mike will create 5 courses to be paired with 5 pinot noirs from Burrows Lightbourn.  The cost is $75.   Spaces are limited but you can book your spot by contacting 295-0857 or ten@yellowfin.bm.

Hi Kids!

 

Lots of love-themed events coming up in Bermuda – here are the latest:

Tree of Love

If you have been on the second floor of the new Washington Mall the past few days, you have probably noticed the outdoor garden which has suddenly appeared opposite Bermuda Gold Standard.  The Garden of Love, sponsored by the Washington Mall and Sousa’s Landscaping, is a Valentine’s promotion aiming to literally grow love in the Heart of Hamilton, with all proceeds going to the Bermuda Heart Foundation.  The garden will include a plethora of plants, benches for people to enjoy their lunch, water features, and a Love Tree where, by donating to charity, you can leave a message to a loved one. The message will be written on heart shaped biodegradable paper that has flower seeds pressed into it. At the end of February, the tree will be planted in a public park and the seeds from the paper will sprout flowers in the spring, creating a carpet of flowers around the Love Tree.  If you submit your love message or song of choice by February 7th, you will be entered into a  singing love-a-gram competition. On Valentines Day, several winners will have their love message sung to their sweetheart by a singing tell-a-gram.
