Canada Day celebrations this weekend

Hope you’re all enjoying the week so far! If you’re at a loose end tonight, please feel free to come and check out my appalling bartending skills at The Reefs from 7pm until 9pm. This is part of their Guest Bartender Series and $1 from each drink sold will benefit the Sunshine League so it’s a good excuse to have a poorly-made cocktail (just kidding, their professional bartender will be on-hand to make sure I don’t mess up too much) and a beautiful view for a good cause. Hope to see some of you there. Here is the latest rundown on what else is happening in Bermuda:

It’s that time of year again when Flanagans Onions FC (the team formerly known as M.R. Onions FC) bring us some swigging and sailing shenanigans at their Summer Booze Cruise tomorrow. The boat departs Albuoys Point at 7pm, returning at 10pm and includes a live DJ and open bar. Tickets are $50 and available in advance from markydunlop@hotmail.com or steven_upton_001@hotmail.com, or you can pay at the boat.

The Evangelical Church of Bermuda are hosting a series of free monthly Family Movie Nights Under the Stars on the last Friday of each month throughout the summer. They invite you to bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the screening on their giant 13ft outdoor screen with the first being ‘Flywheel’ tomorrow, then ‘WWJD’ (What Would Jesus Do) on July 26, ‘Unconditional’ on August 30, and ‘Foolishness’ at their Special Youth Night, a little earlier in the month on September 20. The movies start when the sun goes down at 8.45pm but you are invited to come earlier for the kids fun castle and free refreshments. For more information, contact office@ecb.bm.
