They Did The Monster Mash

Happy Halloween Folks! I hope everybody is spending the day doing something perfectly spook-tastic! (terrible play on words I know). I luckily got a jump start on my Halloween celebrations two days ago when I strolled on down to the Golden Dawn for a night of wicked dancing, ghoulish and all around eerie delights!

Let's take a look at how the night panned out...

Vanity Fair

Now that the rainy mid week is upon us, lets take a look at a finer time - Last Saturday night, which was spent at the newly discovered Golden Dawn in Ponsonby.

From the flowing Pale Ale to the swinging music that filled the air, it was a good night to be out and about town, meeting a lot of nice folks along the way. Lets take a look...

This is how Myself & Em looked.

When we headed out in search of the Golden Dawn.

Where we watched some very good authentic live kiwi music.

Said hello to our new friend Matthieu.

The DJ's were doing a show all the way from Berlin via Skype... technology these days.

And then spent the rest of the evening dancing & mingling. Fun times indeed!

Panic On The Streets Of London

A few months ago my dear sister Emmily surprised me with perhaps one of the nicest presents I have ever received- A return ticket to London this November! Which although I have been quietly anticipating this trip ever since, it has just felt so far away for so long that part of me thought November would never come. But now with the beginning of October, also brings only 5 short weeks until I shall be jet setting my way to the swinging city of London for the first time ever! Plus a four day trip to the dreamy city of Old Paree...

To say I'm excited would be the understatement of the century, perhaps the more suitable phrase would be 'over the moon' ecstatic! Soon I shall be strolling along the Seine River with the two of the finest people I know, shopping in the hip Camden Town, drinking wine in the many cafes of Montmarte and dancing until my feet hurt in the night spots of London. Ahhh blissful times ahead indeed...

Beehives & A Golden Dawn

This is how I looked on Saturday night when Emmily and myself headed out in search of an elusive green door on Ponsonby Road that would lead us to a trendy little bar that I had come across in an interview I read earlier in the week- The Golden Dawn.

It actually turned out to be a terribly wonderful evening filled with dancing, meeting some lovely folks and even a few magic tricks. Unfortunately I left my poor camera at home and so you'll just have to imagine how the night looked.
