Hey, remember when we used to be on top of all the openings and closings in town and filled with reviews? Yeah me neither. The ‘ista is old and property-and-business owning now, and we have Twitter instead of our group mailing list. But we can still try! So to that end, here’s a couple of […]
This isn’t a break up show. It’s about marine science. So begins the blurb for this production coming up at Bats Theatre from July 10-14. A play about whales seems to be very very timely for Wellington right now, but this one has been in the making for a long time. “Four years ago, my friend […]
Today’s guest post comes from Heather of Foodie Gems of Wellie. Yay, we love guest posts! We all love a secret. Especially one that delivers pleasure.
