Anywhere in Bermuda?

I'm flying over to Bermuda in July for 5 days, 6 nights.

Has anyone been there & if so, can you suggest a good place for supper?

i haven't been there in years, but the best dinner i had in bermuda was at a place called henry the 8th's.

it's about mid island, as i recall. we stayed on the southeastern bend of the island in a rental cottage.

my ex-gf and i went to henry the 8ths on a really quiet night when a comedian was supposed to perform. after dinner as he began his show, he gathered the dozen or so customers around one big table in the middle of the restaurant, sat down with us and gave us his show like he was just one of the guys. it was great.

i also (barely) remember killing off a bottle of gran marnier, and 2 cuban montecristo portofino cigars, then trying to ride home on a wobbly moped.

actually, my ex-gf drove, i just help on in a very interesting way...

I bet that was a total blast! I'll write that place down and try to see if its still around.

We also rented a cottage that has a kitchen and a grill outside. We will be staying at a place called Gobblers corner.

If I smoked cigars I would love to try a Cuban but I just can't get past that smell anymore.

I reckon the closest I will ever get to Bermuda is a bottle of Gosling's Black Seal Rum.
Their website is designed pretty good. Lots of good images and the embedded music is pretty nice (and can be turned off, if desired.)

hoot, have you ever had bermuda's national drink, the dark and stormy.

it's a 50/50 mix of gosling's rum and ginger beer.

one or two will cause you to have to hold on when you lie down.
