Congratulations to Richard who you will find hiding away at Munchen Burger getting his borsct on. This week we’ve got our last prize to give away, thanks to celebrate Wellington on a Plate, thanks to the lovely Positively Wellington Tourism, we have a $100 voucher to The Occidental to give away.

Public servants and other Molesworthites are probably well aware of the Occi already, as it’s the first watering hole on Lambton. As well as being a Monteiths pub, it also serves a variety of food, including build-your-own breakfasts on the weekends, and this offer for Wellington on a Plate:

Lunch Offer – $25 set menu
Choose any two courses plus a glass of Wellington regional wine, and a cup of tea or coffee.

Fresh hot loaf smoothed in garlic and parsley butter
Soup of the Day with toasted Tuscan bread

Tender chicken strips pan fried with mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, white wine cream on sald greens
Coconut chilli coriander laksa with mussels, egg noodles and julienne vegetables

Wellington regional wine

So, if you want to win this voucher, all you have to do is leave us a comment before next Wednesday 5pm letting us know what you’d like to see more of (or less) on our site – but you’ll get no points for complaining about our recent outages. We know, and we’re sorry. A winner will be chosen at random, as per usual. Thanks again to Positively Tourism for all the great prizes, and let the eating begin!

As well as wrangling the other site contributors and Getting Shit Done, she likes to eat, drink and write in equal amounts. Yes, she would love to be invited along to your event in order to do those things. Joanna's also the best person to talk to if you're interested in advertising on the site.

I’d love more photos of the venues that you review, of the authors out at the venues, and of general hilarity and merriment.

I basically like the site (and I read through RSS so the blue doesn’t bother me!) but I guess I’d like more pointers to upcoming events, with perhaps a bit more notice.

Keep it up!

Love the site, but you could get MORE AGGRESSIVELY political!

We have a mayoral election coming up and the lead candidate has been building the city into bankruptcy but can’t spare any dosh for Cuba Street carnival!

Jen August 12, 2010 at 5:18 pm

More food reviews please!!

Joanna August 12, 2010 at 5:22 pm

Once the site starts making so much money that the dozen or so of us Wellingtonistas don’t need day jobs – well then, look out!

L'Ange August 12, 2010 at 7:54 pm

More arts coverage please !

Seamonkey Madness August 13, 2010 at 11:43 am

Snippets from the Funerals & Snakes movie reviews would be nice again.
Just sayin’…

Also, totally agree about more food stuff. That Babylon review was scorching hot!

Vitamin K August 13, 2010 at 2:08 pm

More food please. But with photos!

Bazza August 13, 2010 at 4:08 pm

Seconding the ‘bit more notice’ part. You guys do a fab job of bringing events to our attention that we too easily overlook. But it’s usually with a very brief notice.

Speaking of which, here’s my event pointer for today:

Megan August 14, 2010 at 6:06 pm

I’d like to see more Ordered Lists : )

Mika August 15, 2010 at 4:18 pm

I second the person who said more arts coverage – yes please! But mostly I like it the way it is 🙂

Aidan August 16, 2010 at 9:41 am

Would like to see the ability to export a calendar appointment to Google Calendar or Outlook so I can quickly add events. Or provide a shared Google Calendar that can be accessed. Otherwise all pretty good!

Joanna August 16, 2010 at 9:43 am

We do have a shared Wellingtonista Google calendar – making it more public is a good idea, thansk!

Michael Hudson-Doyle August 16, 2010 at 10:37 am

Also more/better spam prevention in the comments…

Alison August 16, 2010 at 6:11 pm

The site is awesome just the way it is. Maybe more reviews …but no biggie. As I said, the site is awesome. Keep up the great work!

leg break August 19, 2010 at 1:57 pm

More gossip and scandal please.

Lorena August 19, 2010 at 2:08 pm

More food reviews would be great, and I like what others have suggested about arts reviews too.

Louise August 16, 2010 at 6:40 pm

I like the reviews and information about the random stuff happening in Wellington that I would never normally know about and one day soon I will emerge out of my internet winter cave and actually attend such an afore mentioned event!!

Oliver Carr August 18, 2010 at 5:01 pm

More semi-political commentry. Particularly with examples of how it actually relates to us in the city!!!

Graham August 19, 2010 at 2:08 pm

More Pork!

Pete August 16, 2010 at 8:40 pm

Dancing girls! Whoo hoo! Dancing boys too (so that everyone’s happy)!

Jojo August 17, 2010 at 7:44 am

Avital August 17, 2010 at 9:42 pm

Great site for foreigners like me to find out what is going on in this amazing city..perhaps more contests would be great! and I do find the font a little hard to read..

haras August 19, 2010 at 2:12 pm

Other than that, stay classy.
