There’s no need to wait until the weekend to have fun. Here are five awesome things to do in Auckland this week.

Shuck me!

If you’re anything like us, you’re a sucker for a good oyster. Whether they’re whiskey cured and served on ice, beer battered in a sandwich or on their own, oysters are something we’ll never tire of. Kick off your week by heading to the Oyster Festival at Shed 22. With top chef Gareth Stewart at the helm, you know you’re onto a good thing. The Culpeper, The Crab Shack, Euro, Coley and Punch and Fish Restaurant are all involved.
