Bermuda Stew

Is it March already? Seems like it was just yesterday when I was admiring scooter driving Santas, listening to jazzy performances and ducking howling winds that have visited our shores for the past two months. Winter’s been a blast but I sure am ready to hit the beach, aren’t you? So in anticipation of a sunny spring here are a few random thoughts to stir the pot—what I like to call Bermuda Stew. The Winter Games officially ended yesterday and it seems like Bermudian cross-country skier Tucker Murphy is still turning heads. From yesterday’s New York Times Inside The Rings blog: “I saw two things here that no one should see during the Winter Olympics: cherry trees in bloom and a guy riding a hotel elevator in Bermuda shorts.” Well done, Tucker. You’ve single-handedly brought cool back to the Olympics. With March comes shoulder-season discounts and here’s one from Port Royal Golf Course: For one day only visitors can play the championship course for just $99, including green fee and cart, which means the home of the 2009/2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf is half-off on March 13th. Wanna see what it's like to play the course's signature hole? Watch this video. Big news from your dinner plates: Lobster season is officially over at the end of this month. Care to taste the sweetest spiny lobster in the world? Then get yourself to Bermuda before March 31st. Try Port O Call on Front Street. Yes, it’s that good. And in case you’re wondering what that silly-looking video is up top, well, go ahead and click play. It’s a little piece I like to call “To Bermuda With Love,” and it might just be the most entertaining 1 minute and 53 seconds you watch all day. Here's the plot in nutshell: When a randy New York City straphanger gets travel advice from an English gentleman, a romantic Bermuda vacation is just a few subway stops away. You're welcome.
