August 24th, 2016: Bermuda Events Update

Morning Troops!

 

NTDIB August 24th

I for one refuse to accept that summer is over quite yet, but I’m sad to say that some of the seasonal activities are already finishing up.  Next week is the LAST Harbour Nights of the season, for example!  On the bright side, when the temperature start cooling down, the events calendar really starts to heat up.  Check out the latest events to be added to the Bermuda calendar below:

 

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:

 

0826 Bermuda Society of Arts

There are two new exhibits opening at the Bermuda Society of Arts (BSoA) in City Hall on Friday, August 26th.

The show entitled Fresh Emerging Artists will be displayed in the Onions Gallery.   BSoA invited 7 artists, who you may not be to familiar with to display current works of various mediums.  Their Emerging Artists show is always inspiring and fresh.

In the Edinburgh Gallery, BSoA presents Fashion Forward, a prelude exhibition to their popular Fashion Collective show that will be held on November 3rd 2016. Look forward to seeing the art of fashion displayed from the designers themselves.

The grand opening of this show will be from 5pm until 7pm on Friday, August 26th.

Opening hours are from 10am until 4pm, Monday to Friday, and from 10am until 2pm on Saturdays. The exhibits will run until Tuesday, September 13th.  BSoA is the oldest gallery in Bermuda, changing shows every 3 weeks and housing a great gift shop with works from local artists.

Admission is free, although donations are appreciated, and all are welcome.

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.
