quick! to ngaio! For those of not interested in (or without tickets to) the Sevens, and an appreciation of fine local music and the joys of a BBQ on a nice day, may we recommend the Little Day Out, taking place today (Fri 3rd Feb) at 42 Old Porirua Rd, Ngaio.

Wellington blues-rockers Connan and the Mockasins are headlining, reason enough to head along, and there’s also the lure of free sausages and a BBQ for whatever else you might want to cook up.

Entry is $3, the whole thing gets going at about Noon, and will go through to 6ish.
