We're betting the spirit is willing, but the bed times will be earlier: Bermuda is hosting a College Reunion Week March 15-17 designed to capture the youthful spirit and excitement of the island's fabled College Weeks in the 1960s and 1970s. The Bermuda Department of Tourism is encouraging baby boomers to take a stroll down memory lane, Bermuda style, and bill the spring break promotion as a "sophisticated alternative for grownups.''

Wayne L. Furbert, minister of tourism, said, "We felt it was about time adults get to experience their own grown-up spring break in a setting that fits their desires for a relaxing, sophisticated experience.''

The party starts with cocktails at Beau Rivage, Bermuda's only French restaurant, at sunset on March 15, then moves to Leau Bar at Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort and Spa. The next day, there will be a booze cruise, and a party at The Cellar at Fairmont Southampton. Saturday night, the reunion ends with a barbecue dinner and party at the Fairmont Southampton Beach Club.

Dedicated hotel packages for the event start at $600 per person and include three-day event passes that provide access to all commemorative gatherings as well as transportation to and from visitors? hotels.For information, visit www.GoToBermuda.com
