What to do, try, eat and buy this week; it’s all here at Britomart.
On these cold mornings, why not skip making breakfast, spend an extra 20 minutes in bed, and pick up a delicious bowl of porridge from White’s & Co in Atrium on Takutai on your way to work? They don’t just do frozen yoghurt, you know. If you have a sneaking suspicion that winter gratins and pasta aren’t doing wonders for your waistline, you can try out the circuit and classes at Fit for Free Fridays at Les Mills Britomart throughout June. Just come in between 5.30am and 9pm on any Friday in June to collect your free temporary pass. You have nothing to lose but your excess carbs. And if you’re still working the excuse that you don’t have the right gear, Nike has 25 percent off selected clothing and footwear until Sunday 17 June.
The La Cigale French Market is on every Saturday morning in Takutai Square from 8am to 1pm. Check out the luscious smoothies and smoothie bowls at the new Blitzd stall and all manner of other tasty French-inspired treats, as well as fresh vegetables and all your weekly cooking needs. The insanely popular Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Brothers of the Grill is back at The Chamberlain this Friday 8 and Saturday 9 June. If you happened to see (and taste) it last time, you’ll remember how good the melt-in-your-mouth glazed meats are. The grill will be on from 12pm until it runs out, so get in quick for Beef Brisket, St Louis Pork Ribs, Louisiana Hot Sausage with Cheese, and Bacon and Egg Potato salad. All meat is slathered in Jack Daniels and served with Jack Daniels and jalapeño BBQ sauce and Jack Daniels Mayo. A fresh range of Deep Creek Brewing Co beers will be available and they’ll be playing the All Blacks Vs France games live on the biggest screens in Britomart. Cork and Fork is also back! Ortolana welcomes the winter by letting you BYO wine every evening in June. Sounds like the perfect excuse for a long, lazy Sunday dinner out to us.
Due for a new-season hairstyle? Dry & Tea are open six days a week from Mondays for their cut and colour experts to work their makeover magic on you. Fried Chicken Tacos have landed at Mexico’s Taco Tuesdays. Back by popular demand, the tacos pair perfectly with a Frida’s Margarita for just $12 (including taco!), or for those who don’t do Tequila on Tuesdays, a Mexico soda and Fried Chicken Taco for just $10. Wrap up this winter with Deadly Ponies‘ latest must-have winter accessory: their new slimline silk Bridles. New stock drops in-store every Wednesday, which might be the perfect time to give your Britomart Black card a workout. (Non-subtle reminder here that our Britomart Black Gift Cards are the perfect gift for the hard-to-buy-for person in your life, as the card gives them the ability to buy from anywhere in the precinct with their card).
