Happy October to you all and welcome to the final quarter of 2014! Once again, I have somehow blinked and missed a large chunk of the year. Oh well, here’s what’s happening in Bermuda this Fall:
Why wait for Friday to celebrate? The Reefs has just introduced its Signature Happy Hour from 6pm until 8pm on Mondays to Thursdays. Enjoy bottled beer for $5, a selection of wines for $6 and well mix drinks for $7.
Apparently, the first official day of Fall was yesterday. Hmmm…I’m not quite ready to accept this yet so I think we can cling onto Summer for a little longer in Bermuda. Here are the latest island events:
, the next in the PartnerRe Art Lecture Series at Bermuda National Gallery will be on Thursday, September 25th.
The guest speaker will be acclaimed contemporary American sculptor and conceptual artist, Willie Cole, who is known for assembling and transforming ordinary domestic and used objects such as irons, high-heeled shoes, hair dryers, bicycle parts, and other discarded appliances and hardware, into imaginative and powerful works of art and installations.
Cole’s work combines references and appropriation ranging from African and African-American imagery, to Dada’s readymades and Surrealism’s transformed objects, and icons of American pop culture or African and Asian masks, into highly original and witty assemblages.
The reception will be from 5.30pm, followed by the lecture itself at 6pm.
The cost is $10 for members and $20 for non-members.
For more information, or to RSVP, contact email@example.com or 295-9428.
Jimmy will be performing 5 nights a week from 8.30pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, promising a high energy variety show packed with comedy, visual musical impressions and favourite Broadway, wrapped around some of the most exciting piano playing that you will ever witness.

Reservations are highly recommended and large party bookings and private functions are available.
