May brings plenty of choices

Some of Bermuda’s most talented young dancers will be showing us what they’ve got at the 16th Annual In Motion Dance Showcase, And The Award Goes To…, at the Earl Cameron Theatre in City Hall. The show will run from Friday, May 10 until Sunday, May 12 and then from Wednesday, May 15 to Saturday, May 18. Shows starts at 7pm and the Saturday and Sunday shows will also have a 2pm performance. Tickets $65 for Patrons, $39 for adults, $29 for students and are available now on www.pTix.bm.

It has been a while since the last one but the next Nothing to Chew in Bermuda dinner event will be on Saturday, May 11 at 7.30pm. Food and wine pairings can be a lot of fun but this is a little twist on that tried-and-tested concept as I’m hosting an awesome Tapas Feast and Cocktail Pairing at Margarita’s Grill. You’ll receive explanations of why the combinations were paired as well as a tasting sheet to make notes and scores. There is no need to rush away after dinner as a DJ will be playing your favourite Top 40 hits, so why not stay and have another few glasses of your new favourite cocktail? The price of all of this is a bargainous $80, which will include all food, cocktails, and grats. A portion of the proceeds of this event will be going to benefit New Beginnings Education Trust, giving young Bermudians access to education and professional development. Tickets are available online at www.pTix.bm and will be on sale until Thursday, May 9, or until the event sells out, whichever happens first. For special dietary requirements or any other questions, please contact me at info@BermudaEvents.com.
