We all need a little bit of fun to break up the work week amirite? We’ve done the hard work for you and gathered together five fab activities in Auckland for you to get involved in this week—solo or with your mates, it’s guaranteed to be a good time.
Monday 14 August
Food To Die For
Theatre and food are put together with a twist at this awesome dining event. Executive Chef Des Harris (ex Clooney) puts on a show not only for your taste buds but also for your entertainment. Theatre and intrigue mix together as there’s a mystery to solve and guess what? You might just find yourself a suspect. A great night out and part of Auckland’s restaurant month, tickets includes a three-course meal and a drink on arrival.

My Dad Wrote A Porno Live
Bruce Mason Centre
In one of the most exciting announcements of the year, that podcast, My Dad Wrote A Porno hits the stage this week. The show is about (surprisingly) an erotic novel written by Jamie’s very own father, which introduces us to Belinda Blinked (so many questions) and her rather colourful time selling kitchenwares. This is one show you don’t want to miss!
Wednesday 16 August
I Am Co. Winter Movie Night
I Am Co. Studio
Get cozy on some beanbags and educate yourself with a screening of “A Plastic Ocean” an environmental documentary on the alarming future of our oceans. With Tom and Luke balls, Little bird treats and serious popcorn it’s the best way to beat hump day blues.
Distinctive Flavours Of Vietnam
Auckland Fish Market and Seafood School
Add a new cuisine to your own culinary skill set by learning how to cook some Vietnamese goodness at Auckland Fish Markets this week. These cooking classes are guaranteed good fun, experience a taste of Asia and learn a thing or two on nailing a great pho.
