Morning all!

 

  • Well, after a long hiatus and months of speculation and rumours, Cafe Cairo will finally reopen tonight at 5pm.  They will be having Happy Hour, Monday to Saturday, from 5pm until 7pm with 20% off food and drink.  To celebrate opening night tonight, they will have Happy Hour prices all night long.  Call 295-5155 for reservations.

 

  • L’Alliance Francaise des Bermudes invites all to a French film evening tonight at the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Institute (BUEI) at 8pm. The chosen film is Ne le dis à personne by Guillaume Canet and Luc Besson with François Cluzet, Kristin Scott Thomas and Nathalie Baye. Unsurprisingly, this film will be in French but with English subtitles. Tickets are available at the door and cost $3 for students, $5 for members and $8 for non-members.

 

  • Fans of independent cinema will be glad to know that more options will be coming soon! Beginning Sunday, September 19th (**UPDATE**  This has been postponed until Sunday, September 26th due to Hurricane Igor), The Weekend Film Series, a joint production of Bermuda Documentary Film Festival director Duncan Hall and BUEI, will be held monthly. The two films showing are Mid-August Lunch, by director Gianni Di Gregorio (the screenwriter of acclaimed Italian film Gomorrah), which will screen at 3pm, followed at 4.30pm by The Oath, by director Laura Poitras (she was nominated for an Oscar for the previous film in this same series). Tickets to each film are $15 and are available on the door or from the gift shop at BUEI. I have included the future dates in the Quick Recap below – they’ll be taking a break in October for Bermuda Docs. For details, see http://www.buei.org/index/whatsnew/i/7/.

 

  • The Bermuda Police Service Gymkhana makes its return after more than a 20 year absence!  I have to admit that I have never heard of this before but it was apparently a popular community event which will take place on Saturday, October 2nd at Police Field in Prospect, Devonshire between 10am and 5.30pm. Everyone is encouraged to come out for a fun-filled day that will allow youngsters of all ages to participate in bicycle activities and races within a safe environment, while fostering positive interactions with police officers. All that is required to take part is a working bicycle and an approved bicycle helmet. This event, which kicks off Police Week 2010, is one of the many ways the Bermuda Police Service is helping to improve relations between the police and the community. The Police Gymkhana 2010 will also feature the Bermuda Long Riders Motorcycle Club, The Bermuda Bicycle Association, The Bermuda Road Safety Council, Crime Stoppers Bermuda and the Roads Policing Unit.  Here’s the poster!

 

  • As mentioned above, Bermuda Documentary Film Festival (Bermuda Docs) will be held from Friday, October 22nd until Sunday, October 24th at BUEI. This festival features the world’s best documentary feature films – I went last year and they had a really good selection. Tickets are $15 and available from Friday October 8th from www.bdatix.bm, the iStore on Reid Street, or Fabulous Fashions at Heron Bay Plaza in Southampton.

 

  • Ferrari Bar at LV’s have sent me a poster of their Happy Hour Spectacular Buffet offer from 4.30pm until 7.30pm, Monday to Friday.  Highballs and beer are $6 and wine is $8, plus you can enjoy a complimentary array of snacks.  Here’s the poster with details.

 

  • Just received the poster for the Gilbert & Sullivan Society of Bermuda show,  The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas here it is, tickets are on sale now at www.premiertickets.bm.

 

  • Polished, a local mobile beauty therapist, are currently running a special 10% discount off your first treatment for new customers.  This offer is valid for the month of September – and the best part is, they come to you!  Here’s the flyer and you can find the full price list and contact details  on the Facebook Page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Polished/169126578779?ref=ts

Hi Kids!

 

It’s Friday and there are no storm warnings!!  Yippee – let’s make the  most of it!  Here are a few ideas:

 

  • To shake things up a bit from their usual Happy Hour tonight, Newstead are presenting Mohawk and Margaritas!  From 5pm, Gosling’s will be hosting a Margarita Night and Mohawk Radio will be providing the live music entertainment from 6pm.  As usual, this will be on the Pool Terrace or in L’Eau Bar if the weather is dodgy.  Here’s the flyer.

 

  • Looks like Mohawk Radio have a busy weekend ahead since they, along with Vinyl Jam and DJ DNice will be performing at the Rock ‘n’ Roll Night at Ferrari Bar tomorrow night (**UPDATE**  This has been postponed until further notice – I’ll let you know when I know!).  This will kick-off at 9pm and entry is free before midnight, $10 afterwards.  Part-proceeds will go to charity – here’s the poster with more details.

 

  • Also tomorrow night, Barmuvinjam are hosting their End of Summer Members’ Cruise aboard the Uber Vida from 9pm (boat boards at Albuoys Point at 8.30pm) until midnight.  But guys, surely we have loads of time before summer ends officially?  Anyway, tickets are $20 in advance from Secrets or $30 at the boat.  This is for Members Only so make sure you are all signed up before you try to get on the boat – here’s the flyer!

 

  • Wow, Bermuda reallys seems to be embracing more New Age beliefs lately!  Coming up next weekend is a Global Mala Yoga for Peace with the aim of uniting the global yoga community from every continent, to form a “mala around the earth”.  On Saturday, September 18th, from 5pm until late, you can participate in this by attending The Global Mala Yoga Beach Party on Horseshoe Bay Beach.  Bring a yoga mat or towel because from 5.30pm until 6.30pm will be beach yoga for all levels and styles followed by deep relaxation and meditation.  From 7pm will be the Pot Luck Supper, lighting the bonfire and music, meditation and chanting until late.  All proceeds go to charity and suggested donations are $20 per adult and $10 per child. Here’s the flyer or see http://www.yogabermuda.com/events.html for more information.  **UPDATE**  This has been rescheduled to Saturday, September 25th – I’ve updated the flyer.

 

  • Another little recruitment drive – The Bermuda School of Music Chamber Choir is seeking male singers.  If you’re interested you can contact Director Ryan Ellis through the website at http://www.musicschool.bm/contact.php
