Letter from the Mayor
LETTER FROM THE MAYOR OF HAMILTON THE RT. WOR. Graeme Outerbridge Welcome to the City of Hamilton As the newly elected Mayor, it is my honor to welcome you to the City of Hamilton, one of the smallest cities in the world, rich in history, culture and heritage. The original Town of Hamilton was incorporated by an Act of the Bermuda Legislature in 1793. Located in a sheltered harbour in the central and largest parish, Pembroke, it was named in honour of the then Governor, Captain Henry Hamilton. The town quickly became the capital of Bermuda when the seat of government was transferred from St. George in 1815. Following the completion of the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity, situated some 400 yards east of the present City Hall, the status of City was conferred upon the Town of Hamilton in 1897 to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Victoria. The City of Hamilton has a resident population of about 1,100 and an estimated daytime population of approximately 13,340 (40% of Bermuda’s working population). This number increases significantly when tourists are added to the equation. In addition to the excellent cuisine that can be found in the city’s many varied restaurants, the shopping is easy and the historic sites are a must see. I can attest to the fact that Hamilton is a delightful capital to get around on foot. Measuring about a quarter square mile, the entire area can be walked in about 30 minutes however, exploring, discovering and enjoying the sites, both historic and new, can take hours, maybe even days. Anyone wishing to explore the City in depth can participate in the Walkway of History tour that was created as part of Bermuda’s 400th Anniversary, in 2009. Plaques have been installed in the sidewalk at various points along the route to identify important sites of architectural, social, cultural or historical significance in the City. This self-°©‐guided tour starts and ends on Church Street in front of the City Hall, and enables the pedestrian to learn about the history of the city and may be taken as a whole or in parts. Brochures can be obtained from City Hall. An electronic version can be found on www.cityofhamilton.bm
Some of the sights to discover include: City Hall Opened in 1960, the building is of traditional Bermuda architecture with a Scandinavian influence in respect of the tower. In 2010 we celebrated the building’s 50th anniversary by reproducing a number of activities that took place at the opening, including inviting some of the workers who helped with the construction. City Hall’s amenities include a theatre, two galleries housing the Bermuda National Gallery and the Bermuda Society of Arts, the Mayor’s Parlour, and the administrative offices of the City of Hamilton. Victoria Park Bandstand Painstakingly dismantled, refurbished and reassembled in 2009, the Victorian Bandstand was originally shipped to Bermuda in 1888 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Golden Jubilee in June 1887. At an unveiling ceremony in 2009, a number of the island’s schools contributed items to a Time Capsule buried in one of the posts of the bandstand to be opened in 2109. Wesley Square A purpose built recreational area officially opened in July 2009 to commemorate the men and women who in 1959, with bravery, tenacity and a vision for a better Bermuda, staged a peaceful theatre boycott and protested for equality, freedom and the end to segregation. City Parks There are four large public parks within the City of Hamilton that are open to the general public between 8am to sunset every day. They are: Fort Hamilton, Barr’s Bay Park, Victoria Park and Queen Elizabeth Park recently named in honor of the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II, the second longest reigning monarch in British history. Again, welcome to Hamilton, Bermuda at it best.

In & On The Water 11
IN & ON THE WATER
WHIZZ! BANG! November is fireworks month in Britain. Everyone loves fireworks. Like all signs in the sky, they appeal to instincts buried deep in our lizard brains. If you didn’t know you had a lizard brain, relax. Stick your tongue out while reading and see if you catch any flies. The authorities will go to great lengths to stop you smoking a cigarette, but they don’t mind if you buy an arsenal of explosive devices to let off whenever you feel like it. Fireworks can be fantastically dangerous. Boy, do I know that. My brother was born on November 6, the day after Guy Fawkes’ Night. For his fifth birthday, we had a fireworks party in the back garden. The year was 1887, or it might as well have been, given that very little of the actual era, the 1950s, would make much sense today. All our little pals from school were invited over. My father was in charge of the fireworks, so what happened must have been his fault. That was another great thing about the 1950s: people were held responsible for their actions. You youngsters won’t have a clue what that means or why it’s a good idea, so you’ll have to trust me on that. One of the fireworks misfired or misworked after being lit and shot into the giant box of fireworks that Dad had placed at a safe distance from the action. Suddenly, unexpectedly, everything in the box went off at once. It was pandemonium, smoke everywhere. I remember it as clearly as I remember anything. The air was acrid with cordite and sulphur. We ran screaming for cover as fiery death rained down upon us — or flew sideways at us, which is the part I remember the most vividly. No one was hurt, not even in the mad scramble for indoors, but we never had fireworks at the house again. Across the road, however, when I was 14, I placed all the plastic model ships I had built as a yoof in a small pond on Hampstead Heath. A dozen strong, the armada was loaded with bangers, fireworks that go BANG. It is recommended not to let them off in small, enclosed spaces such as plastic ship models. The fleet burned and sank that day. I have only handled fireworks one time since, years later. I became a temporary part of a team setting off a professional-quality 20-minute fireworks display on White’s Island. I was writing an article for RG Magazine, of fond memory. We burned through $50,000-worth of pyrotechnics that night, as I recall, to mark a public holiday, or the introduction of Payroll Tax, I forget which. We spent a whole day practicing, but yes, I singed my hair a bit. This time, however, nothing went off by accident. Half a dozen military men formed the crew, plus one feeble nitwit. We all looked out for each other and nothing, but nothing, went sideways. It’s better that way.

Art & Politics: The BNGs 2012 Bacardi Limited Exhibition of Contemporary Bermuda Art In the exhibition BNGs 2012 Bacardi Limited Biennial of Contemporary Bermuda Art visitors will meet the intersection of art of politics. Using various forms of expression, several artists serve to contextualize the politic of time present or past, each creating their own language, or arrangement of ideas to generate very different discussions. Bryan Ritchie interrogates the construction of gender in How to Make a Princess and How to Make a Prince, two charcoal drawings that are at once playful and gothic. Ritchie says: “My recent work questions long established yet often-unproven principles that guide our decisions.” In the Princess piece, the pairs of bunny rabbit slippers marching toward a vacant canopy bed suggest a girly fairytale, yet there is an eerie atmosphere to the scene. Similarly, the Prince piece focuses on an inflatable bouncy castle with flattened tree shapes stealthily approaching an entrance that looks and feels foreboding. Of no relation, Guluzar Ritchie presents a still from a film with the title Connection. In the centre of the image two cigarettes unite two figures, a male wearing a Muslim cap or taqiyah and a female hand providing ‘the light’ amidst a dark background. Is this work about relationships? Is the cigarette serving as a symbol of creation, and if so, is the artist mocking religion? Or is this image about different genders and races, and the risk of such encounters? Ambiguity allows for so many interpretations. And while there may be visitors shocked at the work of Manuel Palacio, whose use of the n-word is bold and aggressive, there will be others willing to read the subtext and consider the ways in which language is a most potent tool. Charlie Godet Thomas constructs an entirely different language using sculpture and photography. Here is a hollow rectangular shape, as though the artist has drawn the form in thick ink, resting in front of an almost opaque image. In order to see the image we must get closer, enter into the form, to see the ever so faint skull, only to realize where we stand. Interested in the human condition, Godet Thomas says: “I explore the photographic object and transform it through the use of sculpture, installation, new media, collage and photography … to represent metaphysical and emotional concerns.” The Biennial is a rather heady exhibition, giving the viewer much to ponder, while the exhibition in the Ondaatje Wing offers an aesthetic respite. Here is Impressions of Bermuda: The David L. White Gift to the Bermuda National Gallery featuring 46 works, many by visiting American Impressionist painters in the early 20th century.

IN THE ARTS
Featuring Artists... Jacqueline Alma and Edwin M.E. Smith currently exhibiting at the BNG’s Biennial
Jacqueline Alma | Fine Artist Born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa, Jacqueline Alma packed her backpack at twenty-one after getting her diploma in graphic design and toured 10 countries throughout Europe. Back and forth between London and Holland she settled in London without knowing where she would work or sleep. She soon found work with an advertising agency and within 18 months was freelancing as a designer/visualizer. Jacqueline studied Graphic Design at a time before computers; she focused on photography, typography, illustration and history but always held a real passion for painting.
In the Arts 25 maiden name and never made mention of it again. On the opening night someone told me that John Charman had bought my painting during his private tour of all the work. He didn’t know it was mine and when he found out that evening, it was quite exciting for both of us. You are currently exhibiting at the Bermuda National Gallery & Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art, please tell us more about these projects. Currently I am exhibiting a painting called ‘Shallow Waters’ in the Bermuda National Gallery’s, Bacardi Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Art. My subject is a young Bermudian named Kenton. I met him at the gym. He had such a powerful physique, which initially I found quite intimidating. As I got to know him I discovered he writes beautiful poetry as a means of expressing the difficult times in his life. We worked together in my studio for a period of time where I got to know him and learned more about him. During the project, I asked him to write a poem on the backdrop of the set where I painted him. It’s an integral part of the painting. In this years Charman Prize exhibition at the Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art I am exhibiting a portrait of K.A.S.E. I had been to a Heather Nova concert and K.A.S.E.
When everything in the design world went computerized, she decided to go back to studying. Jacqueline attended The Heatherley’s School of Fine Art in London, England obtaining a Diploma in Portraiture, finished her Post Graduate and received a commendation from the Royal Society of Portrait Painters. Just four years ago, with her husband and their now sixyear-old son, the family relocated to Bermuda. Please tell us what inspires you to paint since living in Bermuda and when you showed off your first big piece of work on the island. Nature inspires me; I often walk on the beach early mornings and collect things to sketch. When I first arrived in Bermuda I noticed that there were not many contemporary portraits of local Bermudians. The portraits I did see seemed to focus on individuals sitting in their finery. I saw another side to life on the island and began developing a passion for local Bermudians. I wanted to gain a deeper understanding about their lives, background, childhood, likes, dislikes and views on life. I had actually stopped painting for a while when I became pregnant with my son and focused on raising him for a few years. Having moved and settled in Bermuda my husband and I went out one evening and ran into John Charman, my husband’s boss at the time and the man behind the Charman Prize at The Masterworks Museum of Bermuda Art. We asked him to join us for dinner and through conversation made a bet that night that my husband would start getting in shape and I would start to paint again. He challenged me to enter his exhibition, even if it was just a sketch and I thought, I can handle that. I had been practicing Tai Chi and met a woman named Janel. As I got to know her I found that she was an unbelievably grounded person and asked if I could paint her. The painting was titled ‘Janel with Cedar’. We worked on the painting for two months. The idea was that Janel, a maternal Bermudian, held an endangered endemic cedar tree in a nurturing protective pose. Together with her feet grounded, the saplings roots embodied her passion for family and her island. I entered the exhibit under my
performed an opening act. I said to my husband, I want to paint him. A year later I approached Gavin Smith from Chewstick and asked him to recommend a model. With some instruction he sent a young man to my house and when I opened the door in walked K.A.S.E. I spent 3 1/2 months working with him, towards the end we worked together for 13 days solid, 11 hours each day. Sounds like there is a great deal involved with your projects, please tell us more about your process. I paint on linen and always stretch my own canvas. My husband puts the frame together and it takes three of us to stretch the linen over it. I then spend three days priming. This is where the painting starts. I am an incredibly particular measurer and I use a plumb line. I am interested in tone and colour and work exclusively with a limited palate of primary colours. I use a large Santa Fe Easel and my models stand on a platform for 7-8 hours a Continued on page 26

I always work towards the model’s needs, starting with their head in the morning when they are still feeling fresh always making sure that they are comfortable. I wear the same shoes for the entire project and I actually tape them in position so that I am always working in that very position. Likewise I mark my model with tape, the placement of their feet and the props used. Sometimes there are marks left on a painting from the measurements. It’s humbling for me, this process where my models let me into their lives and I am always sad when a painting comes to an end, but in return I am left with a lifetime connection to each model that I have spent time with.

Bermudian artist, designer and educator, Dr. Edwin M.E. Smith is currently exhibiting at the Bermuda National Gallery’s Bacardi Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Art. Edwin is a senior lecturer in the Art and Design programme at the Bermuda College. With academic degrees in education and the arts including a recently earned PHD in Fine Arts, Edwin is a true practicing artist spending his days teaching and creating. When did you first discover the arts? I have loved the arts from a very young age. In fact my mother has saved notebooks of mine from primary school that were filled with drawings. I knew from then that my future would be in the arts. Tell us about your current exhibit on display at the Bermuda National Gallery. My work reflects my interests and I appreciate that with the Biennials there exists a showcase that shows the community what its artists are passionate about. For the past five years, my interest has been in the perspectives of Bermudians, by both themselves and by others. I agree with the Bermudian politician and artist,

Currently, I am working on a series of paintings that technically look very much like those I have on exhibit at the BNG. In these works I am exploring iconic images.

A SERvAnTS’ HOME Of OlD
These days, following the advent of a song so named, one is supposed to be “Proud to be a Bermudian”, many perhaps forgetting that sometimes, “Pride comes before a fall”. However, that proverbial pitfall can be avoided, if one looks for pride in things outside oneself, such as the traditional architecture of Bermuda, a unique combination of concept, lime mortar, limewash and the local soft stone. As a Harvard professor of architecture, John Humphreys, elegantly wrote in 1923: “Bermuda’s own older architecture…is eminently appropriate to the climate and other local conditions, harmonious and in scale with its surroundings. It has a unity, charm and simplicity of an architecture that is the unaffected expression and natural outcome of environment and, from it simplicity, is entirely adaptable to the modern requirements of Bermuda.” In this picture of the 1920s, we see a main house on the right with a servants’ (originally slaves’) quarters on the left, the latter having the largest chimney of the three on the property. While oversized for the quarters, the chimney is typical of an early housing complex, where the servants’ home often served as the kitchen for the main house. The roof on the main house has likely been repaired, while that on the servants’ quarters has the undulations of age that many limestone homes in Bermuda exhibit. To save expense and perhaps to mark a lower status, the walls of the quarters are not plastered, unlike the main house, but were coated only with limewash, or “whitewash” as it is called hereabouts. The whitewash would have been as good a protection against the rain as a plaster surface, but it means that one can often see the individual blocks of limestone. That is not unpleasing to those of us who are proud to be Bermudian because of our lovely, unique architecture, as demonstrated by this small home with a oversized chimney. By Dr Edward Harris, MBE

four large cannon, firing through embrasures or triangular gaps in the masonry. Studying old documents, the archaeologists determined that the foundations of the towers of the redoubt might be preserved under Durnford’s bulwark and so it proved. The towers were about ten feet in diameter and very well built in Bermuda stone; very few artifacts were found suggesting that the fort was not occupied except perhaps in emergencies. Between the gun embrasures were the rubble-filled merlons and in two of these, to the astonishment of all, were found two burials, one with an American coin minted in Connecticut in 1787 in the pocket of the nightshirt in which the body had been laid to rest. Forensic examinations found them to be males, with growths on their collarbones indicating that they were labourers, possibly stonecutters, masons or boatmen. Durnford’s surviving records shed no light that those two labourers having died during his construction of the Smith’s Fort, so the presence and personages of these two inhumations may forever be a mystery, awaiting cold case archaeological detectives of the future.
Tomb of the Unknown Labourers Smith’s Fort was one of the first buildings made of Bermuda stone within the first year settlement of Bermuda in late July 1612. The settlers, arriving at what must have looked like paradise on earth after the wet grays of the English climate, were immediately put to work raising fortifications to protect their new establishment from Spanish attack. Early in 1613, Governor Moore had them working at Castle Island, to protect the entrance to Castle Harbour, but “he removes most of his men from thence and begins to fall to work in a small island [Governor’s Island] lying on the south side of the harbour’s mouth of St. George’s where with much ado he makes a kind of platform, planted some ordnance upon it and erected a redoubt”, to be named “Smith’s Fort”. It was the lost redoubt of Smith’s Fort that archaeologists looked for in 2001. The redoubt was a very small fort in the style of a late Renaissance castle with two circular bastions and a curtained courtyard to the rear. This was the only such fort at Bermuda, for all the other early works were built in a fashion to house the new technological wonder, the cannon. Had Smith’s Fort survived, it would have been a delightful historic cameo at the entrance of the channel to St. George’s Harbour, between Paget and St. David’s Islands. That was not to be, for upon losing the east coast of what became the United States of America, the British military realized that Bermuda held the key to the defence of the western North Atlantic sea lanes, and the place from where they could control the navy of the new country to the west. At the peace of the American Revolutionary War in 1783, the Royal Engineers—“purveyors of technology to the Empire”—were sent to Bermuda to assess the state of its fortifications and to enhance them for the protection of a proposed naval station. One of the buildings that was severely altered in the 1790s was Smith’s Fort. Captain Andrew Durnford, RE, demolished the 1613 redoubt and replaced it with a bulwark for

… That German Prisoners of War were interned in Bermuda during World War I? – Part 1
Some local German residents were also arrested, as was an ex-Boer War prisoner of German birth who refused to swear the oath of allegiance to the British Crown and never left Bermuda after the Boer War. Other Germans were spared this fate, including Heinrich Friesenbruch who had asthma, Wilhelm Frederick Sondy due to his old age, and Captain William E. Meyer, whose company W.E. Meyer & Co. was considered loyal to the British Crown.
While there were approximately 4,600 Boer prisoners in Bermuda during the Boer War, there were never more than about 60 Germans interned here during World War I. The majority of the internees were officers and crew members of the following ships: Bermudian, Cayo Soto, Caribbean, Leda, Kent, Chaleur, David Baird and Vesterland, with the largest group of 38 coming from the Leda. Although some had served in German military services previously, none of the internees were actually military prisoners.

A letter sent by German Prisoner of War Erich Röhr in 1917 to a newspaper in Hamburg, Germany. The letter was checked by Assistant Provost Marshall Captain Charles P. Pitt (top right corner), endorsed ‘OK RB’ by Miss R.S.G. Butterfield, the interpreter for German, and finally censored by the Chief Censor Major William Robert Winter using his handstamp and initials WRW. Erich Röhr was a cook and 23 years old at the time of his internment in Bermuda.
The German prisoners interned at Fort Albert in St. George’s left behind a permanent record of their confinement. This registered letter sent by the Royal Navy in Ireland Island to the W.E. Meyer Boat Yard in St. George’s is an example of the cooperation between the Royal Navy and a German-owned company after the outbreak of World War I. It was mailed on August 14th, 1914, and censored in Hamilton by John P. Hand.

Greenside Bunkers The key to greenside bunker play is to hit a high, soft shot. One of the most common errors I see at when coaching, is players don’t open the club face enough and/or lean the shaft too far forward at address. This dynamic creates a lower initial launch angle, promoting the player to create a short arm swing and/or decelerate to counter the lack of loft. But even more importantly when this occurs the bounce on the club is minimized and as a result the club digs rather than skids. It is not that you cannot hit a good shot like this, but that it is much less likely. If you dig you must hit the sand exactly 2 inches before the ball or the club will dig and the ball will stay in the bunker. If you skid you can hit the sand 2-8 inches before that ball and still hit a good shot. Here are some things to consider at address to help create an environment that allows for enough loft and bounce which promotes the bigger arm swing and acceleration. 1. Put the clubface open with the shaft neutral to leaning slightly back. Look at adding loft not only through the clubface but also by not leaning the club shaft towards the target. Although there are situations that call for this, most greenside bunker shots call for the hands to be more in-line with the club head to leaning slightly back in relationship to the target to create the loft needed for the shot. 2. Ball position forward, in stance with the butt of the club pointing at belt buckle. With the shaft more neutral to leaning slightly back, it is important to position the body so the butt of the club is pointing at the belt buckle. This will help secure a forward ball position, leading to a higher launch. 3. Weaker grip, I encourage my players to move both their hands on the grip towards the target (weaker) which allows the clubface to open more during the backswing. This is an advanced approach, but it can help those who normally have a very strong grip and struggle out of the bunker.

Envisioned as a strategic British military outpost that would make Bermuda the “Gibraltar of the West,” the Royal Naval Dockyard was built by slave and convict labour. The Dockyard locked its gates in 1951. Since then, the seventy-five acre site has been painstakingly renovated to accommodate museums, a movie theatre, restaurants, The Arts Centre and the Bermuda Craft Market. NATIONAL MUSEUM OF BERMUDA Ireland Island, Sandys Located in the Keep of the Royal Naval Dockyard, this museum has become one of the island’s most frequently visited destinations since being opened by HM Queen Elizabeth II in 1975. Its popularity has increased even more with the recent restoration and opening of Commissioner’s House. Elsewhere on the complex, exhibits chronicle both Bermuda’s association with the Royal Navy and its own interesting maritime history. In addition to a collection of Bermuda-made boats, there are relics from the Sea Venture, maps, the famous Tucker Treasure—collected from the sixteenth-century Spanish galleon the San Pedro—and many more artifacts. Open Monday to Sunday 9:30am-4:00pm (last admission 4pm). Adults $10, seniors $8, children under 13 FREE. For further information telephone 441 234-1333.

ST. GEORGE’S AND EASTERN PARISHES St. George’s — a UNESCO World Heritage Site — is where it all began, when in July 1609 the Sea Venture — en route from England to the new colony of Jamestown Virginia — encountered a violent storm and was shipwrecked on Bermuda’s reefs less than a mile off what is now St. Catherine’s Point. Miraculously, all on board survived the disaster and rowed ashore to Gates Bay, located at the eastern end of St. George’s. ST.

ST. PETER’S, Their Majesties Chappell Duke of York Street Situated in appropriate loftiness above the main street of St. George’s, St. Peter’s Church is one of the island’s most beloved landmarks and is the oldest Anglican church continuously occupied in the New World. The first church on the site was constructed in 1612 of native cedar and a thatched roof. This original edifice was replaced seven years later by a more permanent structure that lasted almost a hundred years, until the hurricane of 1712. Following this disaster, the church was again rebuilt. Open Mon. - Sat. 10am-4pm. Anglican service 11:15am Sundays. THE OLD RECTORY Broad Alley, St. George’s, behind St. Peter’s Church Built in 1699, this charming cottage on one of the numerous picturesque back streets in St. George’s is one of Bermuda’s oldest houses.

Alexander Richardson in the last quarter of the eighteenth century. Outisde viewing only. ST.

Open Tues-Sat 10am-3pm. Admission $4. 297-4126. CORPORATION OF ST. GEORGE Town of St. George Town Hall, the handsome building commanding King’s Square and bearing the town crest was begun in 1802, a few years after the Corporation of St. George’s was founded in 1797. The State House, located up a gentle elevation behind Town Hall, is one of the island’s oldest, most historically important buildings. Erected around 1620 by Governor Nathaniel Butler, the State House is open to the public 10am-4pm on Wednesdays only. (10 - 2 May 1 - Oct 31) THE UNFINISHED CHURCH Duke of Kent Street, St. George’s The impressive Gothic vestige that looms over the town of St. George’s was begun in 1870 as a replacement for St. Peter’s, which had fallen into a state of serious disrepair. Outside viewing only. The structure is unsafe – please heed the warning signs. Designed by William Hay, the Scottish-born architect who later drew the plans for Hamilton’s cathedral, the St. George’s church was abandoned in 1899 when near completion. FORT ST. CATHERINE & MUSEUM St. Catherine’s Point, St. George’s Fort St. Catherine stands on the site of one of the four towers that Governor Richard Moore erected along Bermuda’s coast around 1613. None of these original towers, the first English forts in the New World, survive. The present, completely restored structure, dates from the mid-nineteenth century and is home to fascinating exhibits including military guns and weapons. 75% of the fort is wheelchair accessible. Open Mon-Fri 10:00am-4:00pm. Continued on page 54

54 What to See & Do CARTER HOUSE Southside Road, St. David’s Carter House was probably built in the 1720s by John Hayward and his wife Martha, reputedly a descendant of Christopher Carter, one of the two Sea Venture survivors who stayed behind when the vessel’s other passengers continued on to Virginia in 1610. Acquired by the St. David’s Historical Society, this small house with its unusual ‘welcoming arm’ stairs has been converted into a museum that commemorates the pre-war agrarian traditions of St. David’s. Open Saturday 10:00am-4:00pm.
ST. DAVID’S LIGHTHOUSE Mount Hill, St. David’s Constructed of Bermuda stone, this 55-foot structure is one of two local lighthouses.

Open 9-4, Mon-Fri from Nov - Mar. Admission is free. CRYSTAL CAVES & FANTASY CAVES Wilkinson Avenue, Bailey’s Bay Two young boys discovered this magical underground world comprising stalactites, stalagmites and a clear, fifty-five foot deep lake by accident in 1905.

Beverly Allen | Q’s BBQ Q’s is an authentic barbeque restaurant owned by Brenda Augustus Spencer. It is located where the former Brenda’s Poolside Diner & Ice Cream Parlour was. Q’s is open every day from 11am to 10pm. The menu offers different kinds and styles of barbeque ribs, chicken and other dishes. Let’s meet one of the Chefs that works at Q’s – Beverly Allen. How long have you been working at Q’s? I have been working at Q’s since the first day they opened. Q’s opened in March 2012. Were did you work before joining Q’s? I used to work for myself. I used to own a restaurant at Mid Atlantic Boat Club; I was a chef owner for 4 years. Business started to decline last year so I was forced to close the restaurant and look for a job. Are there any dishes that you’ve created in the menu? I have one of my own recipes in Q’s menu. It is the Taco Salad with fresh vegetables and topped with fish, chicken or beef. What is the best selling dish at Q’s? The best selling dish is the barbeque ribs. However the pull pork with sweet mash potatoes is becoming more and more popular among our customers.
What are your plans for the future? In the future I would like to open my own restaurant, again. I would like to own an international restaurant where every month I will have chefs invited from all over the world. Can you give us some recommendations for lunch and dinner? For Lunch I recommend: Greg Steak Sandwich or Brenda’s Fish Sandwich, both served with coleslaw and fries. For Dinner I recommend: Saint Louis ribs with macaroni and cheese served with freshly home made coleslaw or fresh steamed vegetables.

Bartenders | Frog & Onion Pub
The Frog & Onion Pub is a great stop while you are in Dockyard. The Pub has four dining areas including the Cooper’s Room, which features their famous giant original stone fireplace as its centerpiece. The three other dining areas include the Admiral’s Room, which is great for private parties. The bar area, where you can watch your favorite team on one of the large television screens while enjoying brewed-on-site ‘Dockyard Brewing Company’ beer. There are two outdoor dining areas, the Beer Garden Patio and the Victualling Yard Deck where you can sit and view the amazing historic stone buildings that surround it. As soon as you walk into the pub you find happy, helpful, and entertaining bartenders behind one of the largest bars in Bermuda. ‘Charles Souza’ and ‘Michael Scott’, two charming bartenders are familiar faces among the booze-swigging community of Bermuda. They both started working in the industry right after high school. Charles started work at the age of 15 at the Fairmont Hamilton Princess front desk. He worked there for three years and after that he tried his luck as a bartender. Since his first day as a bartender at Mr. Onions he knew that this is what he wants to do for the rest of his life. Michael started at the age of 15 as a helper in the bar at Portofino. However, after observing and assisting the regular bartender, he soon managed to become well enough versed in the art to become a bartender himself. Charles joined Frog & Onion in April 2011 and Michael joined it in 2009.
