Where to party this weekend
As waves of college students return to the Island, the party season will move forward full speed. One of the weekend’s biggest events will be the Welcome Back College Party at Pier 6 on Front Street tomorrow night.
Blazing hot music will be provided by some of Bermuda’s top DJs including: Imega Sound, DJ Rusty G, YGS Entertainment, Supatone Sound and DJ Smokey.
Russell Griffith aka DJ Rusty said this would be the “official kick off to the 2012 party season in Bermuda”.
“There is no better way for college students to reconnect with all their friends at the same time in the same place,” he said. “Every year the Welcome Back College Party gets bigger and better. This one will be the biggest one yet.”
He said partygoers can expect a great environment with a vibe and energy unlike anything else on the Island.
“[There is an] awesome line-up of DJs ready to play the best party music the world has to offer. We plan to party like it’s summer time at Pier 6 so come prepared,” he added.
Doors open at 9pm and the party is expected to continue until 3am. Tickets, $20, are available from Kit & Caboodle and The Beach. People can also download a free ‘Welcome Back’ promo CD and get a taste for what the event will be like tomorrow night: immortalvybz.podomatic.com/.
In the meantime if anyone is looking for something to do tonight they can enjoy liquor and laughs at the premiere screening of ‘American Reunion’.
Specialty Cinema and Grill will hold an open bar from 8pm until 9pm in the movie’s honour. After the showing of what is being hailed as “the funniest American Pie yet”, ticket holders are invited to enjoy a free after-party at Shine’s House of Music.
Tickets, $30, were expected to sell out at Kit & Caboodle and Specialty Cinema and Grill early.
“This is sure to be a night filled with laughter and plenty good times so grab your tickets fast and come help us to create new memories,” said the event organiser.
Lemon Tree will also be hosting its Pig in the Park Party tonight. Tickets are available for $25, which includes a T-shirt (while supplies last) and unlimited plates of pork and potato salad. Those who bought their shirt in advance will also get two free drink tickets.
Whitehorse’s The Light Nightclub will host Retro Nights tomorrow, for people aged 21 and older. This will be the reopening party after the club was closed for over a year.
DJs Jugglin J and Mikey B will be playing music from the 80s and 90s from 10pm until 3am.
Admission for ladies is $10 before midnight and $20 after. Guys will be charged $20 all night.
The annual Mad Hatter’s Party will also take place tomorrow from 8pm until 1am. It is a fundraiser for Mariners RFC at the Mariners’ Club, across the street from Robin Hood Pub.
The open bar will be available all night; and DJ Einstein will serve up an eclectic mix of tunes - from dance hall to dubstep to some cheesy 80s favourites.
“Stein has a knack for ensuring that the entire party comes along for the ride, no matter what he’s got on at that moment,” said organiser Cameron Hollis.
Party-goers are encouraged to wear the most ridiculous hats they can find. Mr Hollis said: “There is an incentive to do so in some fantastic prizes donated by both Mad Hatter’s Restaurant and the Mariners RFC, with the categories being best and worst hats.
“In the past we’ve had everything from a fully-lit dollhouse to an empty beer case with eyeholes as far as homemade efforts go, and the whole range of what can be found in charity shops, military surplus and retail outlets.”
The party is open to both members and non-members, however tickets, $60 in advance and $65 on the night, will be limited at the door. To ensure you get your tickets visit www.premierticketsglobal.com or e-mail MarinersRFC@gmail.com.
