Happy Friday Kids!

 

Just a couple of quick updates for you this morning:

 

  • Tonight's Moonlight Movie Series family feature has changed from How To Train Your Dragon to Diary of a Wimpy Kid.  It's still followed by The Proposal.   Also, instead of Barr's Bay Park, it has been relocated to the car park where #1 Shed used to be.  You might want to bring chairs as blankets won't be as comfy on concrete as on grass.

 

  • A few of you were looking for an update on the Movie Raft-up at Paradise Lakes on Saturday (**UPDATE**  This has been rescheduled to September 5th).  Obviously, this is dependant on Tropical Storm Colin, which is apparently coming our way (why do these things always hit at the weekend?!?) but the plan is to start at 3pm and the selected movie is Point-Break.  Here's the link to the Facebook event if anyone wants to sign up for updates – http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=134961846524223&index=1.

 

  • UPDATE:  The Pink Party has been moved to next Saturday.

 

  • For anyone who missed the Live Latin Music at Sea Breeze Lounge last month (or even for those of you like me who did make it there and loved it) you'll be glad to know that it's coming back!  Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 6pm between August 12th and 22nd, Grammy-winning Willy Torres will be coming back to Bermuda, this time with vocalist/keyboard player, Ariacne Durran. Every Thur, Fri, Sat and Sun until Aug 22.  Here's the flyer.

Happy Friday Kids!

 

It never fails – just as soon as I publish a post and smugly think that my work here is done for the week, a whole bunch of new events are announced!  Oh well, here goes:

 

 

  • The Moonlight Movie Series is back again!  I love these, it's so nice to watch a movie outdoors, especially since we live in one of the most beautiful places on Earth.  The first movie is Avatar and is showing tonight at Horseshoe Bay at 8.30pm. Tomorrow night, also at Horseshoe, is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs at 8.30pm, followed by Couples' Retreat at 10.15pm.  Friday, August 6th at Barr's Bay Park, they will be showing How to Train your Dragon (UPDATE: This has now been changed to Diary of a Wimpy Kid instead!) at 8.30pm, followed by The Proposal at 10.20pm.  On Saturday, August 7th, 2012 will be showing from 8.30pm at Clearwater Beach.  For more details, see www.moonlightmovieseries.com.

  • Showoff Magazine will be offering free L'Oreal makeovers in Phoenix tomorrow from12 noon until 3pm.  You'll get to sample new L'Oreal products, drink complimentary cocktails and enjoy a free photo session.  Participants will also be entered into a draw to win a luxurious weekend for two to Newstead Belmont Hills Resort and spa treatments at Samahdi spa.  If you can't make this weekend, they're doing it again on Saturday, August 7th.  Here's the flyer.

Morning all!

 

Phew, you know it's getting crazy-hot when sleeping in your fridge seems like a good idea!  Still, let's make the most of the summer while it's here:

 

  • The next in the BIFF Film Series will be The Exploding Girl which will screen at the BUEI Tradewinds Auditorium on Thursday, July 22nd at 6.30pm.

  • Any Michael Jackson fans out there?  If so, say Beat It to boredom and moonwalk your way to the Tribute to Michael Jackson Show at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess on Saturday, July 24th.  There will be a variety of acts, all by local artists, including Michael Jackson impersonators, dancers and tribute songs to him.  After the show there will be a video tribute with snippets from MJ's career projected onto a large screen on the wall of the Princess Room.  After-show music will be provided by DJ Cavon and Malcom "Lethal Weapon" Smith. Dress code is smart with no caps or sneakers.  Doors open at 8pm, the show starts at 9pm and goes until 11.30pm and tickets are available at Shannon's Boutique and Caesar's Pharmacy at a cost of $30.  VIP tickets are $85 and available from David Lee Tucker at dsltucker@hotmail.com or call 234-3715.  Here's the flyer.

  • Famous for Fifteen Minutes is back! This is the 9th annual playwright competition from the Bermuda Musical and Dramatic Society (BMDS) and presents six short plays, from a variety of genres, each lasting 15 minutes (hence the name!) at Daylesford Theatre. I have seen this show a few times and the plays are always at a really high standard. It will run from Thursday, August 12th until Saturday, August 21st (with no performance on August 15th). The Gala Night is on closing night at 6.30pm with a pre-show reception with food and drink. Tickets are $25 or $75 for the Gala Night and will be available from www.bmds.com from August 7th.

Ali, shall we book a trip to Myrtle Beach? Enjoy:
