Hope you’re all well – for anyone worried about being bored after summer is over, there are lots of upcoming Bermuda events for later in the year already!  Here goes…

Oh, and as always, don’t forget to check out the Quick Recap section at the bottom of this post for a full listing of all upcoming events, including those previously covered in earlier posts:

 

0818 Mad Alchemy Thursday Nights

Join local legend Ryan Gibbons for an intimate night of magnificent mixology at Mad Alchemy Thursday Nights at RumBar at Victoria Grill, launching tomorrow.

From 5pm each week, you can discover Bermuda’s best kept secret city bar, tucked away in a spacious courtyard off of Victoria Street,  and enjoy bespoke beverages and craft cocktails to titillate the taste buds.

Ryan’s mixological knowledge and creativity are unparalleled, as demonstrated by his impressive collection of bartending awards.  He has won The Bermudian Magazine’s Best of Bermuda Award four times in the last five years, in addition to the Bermudian Magazine’s 2013 VIP Excellence Award and Best of Bermuda Creative Cocktails 2013 and 2015.  As if his trophy cabinet weren’t crowded enough, he has also won Bacardi Bermuda’s Best Bartender 2014 and 2016.

Ryan is known for his exotic ingredients, unusual combinations and creative flair, and he will also partner with other young and up-and-coming bartenders and guest appearances at this weekly event.

In addition to the drinks, most weeks will also feature live entertainment, ranging from spoken word to Latin dance to chilled out reggae riddims.

There is no cover charge, although the launch event will coincide with PechaKucha Bermuda, who are requesting a $20 donation to Chewstick.
Mad Alchemy will continue weekly until further notice.

Summer 2016 is the wine tasting event where they don’t really care much about which red wine goes well with lamb chops (don’t worry, they’ll feed you). Instead, their mission is matching great wines with great experiences.

With themed wine stations, games and good people, this edition of Uncorked! will take place outdoors on the lawn at the Royal Hamilton Amateur Dinghy Club overlooking the glorious Hamilton Harbour, just in time for a beautiful sunset.

The Themed Wine Stations will include Summer Sparkles (cold, effervescent and refreshing), Picnic Picks (their top wines for picnicking), and A Midsummer Night’s Drink (the best wines for a relaxing summer evening outdoors).

All games are $5 per person, per play, and will include Cork Pull, Ring Toss, Raffles and more.

Uncorked! also supports a worthy charity with every event.  This season’s receiving charity will be the Chewstick Foundation and they’re hoping to help them rebuild to even higher heights.  Chewstick will receive 10% of ticket sales and all proceeds from the games.

General admission is $50 in advance or $60 at the door, while the Connoisseur’s Club Pass (only 20 available) is $100.  Both tickets are available from www.pTix.bm and include entry to the event and unlimited complimentary wines.  The Connoisseur’s Club Pass will also include access to the VIP section with an exclusive selection of premium wines and an exciting gift bag.  General admission tickets are also available at The Edge, G&G Bermuda (Washington Mall), or call 704-2771 for delivery.
