AUCKLAND HOT 5 - FEBRUARY 2016



MUSIC BY DAY< MOVIES BY NIGHT

Ben & Jerry’s Openair Cinemas are a quintessential outdoor event, with feature films lighting up our huge movie screen from dusk. Cinemagoers can chill out before their movie with some tasty food and frosty beverages from the licensed bar, while relaxing to sounds from the best of the kiwi music scene and sets from the most exciting emerging local musicians.



SWEET AS, BRO

Celebrate New Zealand’s national day the best possible way - by getting out and exploring this awesome spot we can proudly call home. Take a trip out to Bethell’s, climb Mt Eden or simply soak up the inner city vibe - Happy Birthday Aotearoa!!



HERE COMES THE HOT-STEPPER(S)

Waitangi Weekend in Auckland will be abuzz as all 16 NRL teams descend on Eden Park for this two-day, nine-per-side knockout tournament extravaganza! The home town heroes are looking good with some of the best hot-steppers around all ready to work their magic - dress up, get vocal and cheer them on.



CENTRE STAGE

Art and live performance fans will be salivating at the prospect of what’s ahead of them this February with not only Cirque Du Soleil making a welcome return (this time with Quidam), but also the iconic Pop Up Globe setting up stage in the central city - “"We are such stuff as dreams are made on..."



EATS & TREATS

While the rest of us may have spent the summer lounging around at the beach or indulging over more than a few bbqs, a fair few in the hospo trade have been beavering away turning their dreams into reality for the benefit of us all. Auckland palates, please welcome: Spacca (Italian, Remuera), Fresh (Cafe, Downtown), Pocket Bar & Kitchen (Opening Soon, Grey Lynn), Bestie (Cafe, K’Rd) and a completely revamped Atomic HQ (Kingsland) - welcome them with your wallets people!
