What to drink, eat and check out in Britomart this week.
Start your Friday the way you mean to go on by rounding up your squad and booking one of the plush leather-and-marble champagne table service booths at 1885 . Come Saturday, you might feel the need for a spruce-up at The Face Place, which has just become the first medi-spa in New Zealand to join the Sustainable Salons network. That means they’re minimising their landfill waste, maximising recycling and supporting the Kiwi Harvest charity. Wet and muddy winter rides dirty up your bike and degrade its lifespan. Take a few minutes out of your Sunday to pop into Evo Cycles for advice on cleaning and protection products to keep your wheels in prime condition. We like to start our work week virtuously with a vibrant poke bowl as our Monday lunch. Build your own at Yeah Bowl in the Britomart Train Station.
Joining the Adidas runners club will give you a shot of winter fitness motivation (and accountability). Rain or shine, the crew departs from outside the Customs St Adidas store at 6pm every Tuesday. For a Hump Day pick-me-up, we reckon you can’t go past the new chocolate steamed buns with a molten chocolate centre (above) at Xuxu Dumpling Bar. On Thursday, finish your day (or start your evening) with a $10 dacquiri, or a $10 Dark ’n’ Stormy (that’s a delicious Dark Rum, Ginger and Lime cocktail) at Talulah’s Tiki Time, on from 4-7pm.
