            Obviously you were not there last night, last night was beautiful seeing a community participating together. Hotels are full, restaurants are to capacity, no one has said this will solve everything, but if we act properly it can generate tourists to return. Everyone was grateful and kind last night, not sure where you were when we lost money on Beyoncé and the Love fest, and shall I bring up 800 million and the monstrosity on South shore that sold one unit!!!,

    The atmosphere was amazing on Front Street this evening. A real sense of Bermudian hospitality and togetherness. It was wonderful.

    • Um.... says:

      Agreed. We are on the world stage and we shined last night. I hope and pray that all participants and guests feel the Bermuda love. And may it help to bring tourism and all manner of business to our shores.
