AUCKLAND HOT 5 - October 2013



THE REUBEN AT FEDERAL DELI

So I’m going to make a big call here and say that the Reuben that I had recently at Al Brown’s new restaurant is better than the one I had in New York at Katz’ Deli (of When Harry Met Sally fame). Love the big pickle!




THE DANCE OF HOOLIGANS

The Gow Langsford Gallery is playing host to what is in essence and ‘odds and ends’ exhibition of some of Dick Frizzell’s conceptual work that never quite made it to full formation. Dick himself will be doing an artist talk as part of Arts Week on October 12.




SINGLE LADIES! GRAB YOUR UMBRELLA…ELLA…ELLA

Kicking of what must be one of the greatest line-ups in Vector Arena’s history, we welcome Rihanna and Beyonce to Auckland for a combined total of 6 sell-out shows in October. So what do we reckon for celeb spotting locations? SQPR like Tyra Banks or Waiheke like Justin Timberlake?




LAND AHOY!

If you’re into ships (and really… who isn’t into ships), then Labour Weekend is going to be an exciting time as a flotilla of ten tall ships arrive in Auckland Harbour. Public can board the ships on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 October between 10am and 4pm. The ships will be berthed on Princes, Queens and Hobson Wharves.



NEWBIE SHOUTOUTS

And finally a quick shout-out for some new kids of the scene. Scullery on K Rd is fantastic – you can check out our 5 star review HERE. We’ve heard good things about Miss Clawdy, and Baduzzi (though we hope they’ve ironed out their waiting times – 90 minutes waiting at the bar to be seated seems extreme), and Johnny Feedback on Beresford Square is getting good notices. We haven’t been yet but already love the alley!

TWITTER ME!
Just a little plug for my twitter feed – lots more great things around Auckland highlighted on here, plus lots of random food pics! @jonopark
