Yelp Auckland – you did good. Thievery studio is an understated, urban, artist’s ‘dream space’ for photographers (namely Garth Badger), filmmakers, event producers, fashion designers and anyone wanting a creative hideaway on the infamous Karangahape Road. Attending ‘So Fresh & So Clean’ last night was an outstanding event showcasing ‘Honey Trap’ (Hummingbird Cake & Mini chicken club sandwiches), ‘Cocoloco’ (Pure coconut water & Spiced Stolen Rum with coconut water) – truely orgasmic. ‘Room by Room’ (affordable & accessible) interior design consultation, who gave away gorgeous cacti wrapped in recycled brown paper. ‘Invivo’ sampling delicious red wine, ‘Garage Project’ with their array of craft beer from Te Aro, ‘Antipodes’ sparkling & flat water that I can never drink enough of. ‘Bird on a Wire’ with paleo-style fare. The dip was heaven. ‘Little Eats’ was sampling a deconstructed creme brûlée-like sweet & a bite size spicy pastrami treats, ‘Bluebells Cakery’ offered ginger crunch, chocolate brownie, mini jammy donuts & more gastronomy! I drunk the Clasico & Rose Cava and nibbled on most of the above. The highlight was the Spiced Stolen Rum Cocoloco, the carefully positioned life-size zebra mounted on the wall, ‘Honey Trap’ clubs and Yelp for always exceeding my expectations – Yelp me!
Another sterling and stupendous ‘Yelp Elite Event’ held at Jetset Bohemian, in the hip spot of Grey Lynn.
A team of awe-inspired yelpers each donated a pair of second-hand sneakers or $10 for #GivingShoesDay #GivingTuesday to send some relief to the victims of the Philippines Typhoon #TyphoonHaiyan
Bird on a Wire was present with their offerings of ‘Korean BBQ Chicken Roll’ and the classic ‘Bird On A Wire Chicken Roll’. What can I say: Scrumptious!!!! Thanks Sophie!
Also Rochfort Rees wine, that I will admit I had not heard of, until now! Sampling the super premium Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris was a delight! The virtual winery whose philosophy “is to make wine that is simple in its complexity.”
Simple yet perfect.
Jetset Bohemian opened late for the yelpers’ pleasure: beautiful vintage pieces, scarfs, hats, you name it! I adored their newsprint-like carrybags, very cool.
What a night of yelping!
