Oh Auckland, you’re a gift that keeps on giving! With all kinds of activities happening year, month and week round, there’s never a shortage of things to awesome things to keep us busy-bodies thoroughly occupied. This week we’re in for a treat with everything from curry and coffee to musicals and morning raves.
Curries And Beersies

A Good Cup Of Coffee
Grab a morning coffee and do some good this Tuesday. The friendly folk at Goodness Gracious are offering a comforting cup of free (yes, free!) coffee in exchange for a can of food. The best bit? All cans will be donated to the Auckland City Mission food bank. Donate a can (or two) from 7.30am to get amongst this awesome event. Coffee never tasted better!

Rave It Out
Out late partying until the AM? Puh-lease, that’s sooo predictable. Partying only and exclusively in the AM is where it’s at! That’s right, start your day off the right way with a morning rave at Morning People at Whammy Bar. Set your alarm bright and swap your green-tea-chai-matcha-latte-chino-juice for some pumpin’ tunes to get you really amped up for the day ahead.

Get Set To Rock ‘N’ Roll

You’ll be groovin’ in your seat as Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins take the stage.
