  • Frank's Home Bar Essentials

    Pretty good selection. My flatmate and I have both worked in hospo for the past ten years to pay for our education. I have three months left on my Masters and I can escape the all consumer life of the study all day and drink all night lifestyle. Looking to have one last blow out when we finish. This lot would make a very nice edition to the evening. Add to our Bookers Bourbon, South Gin, 42 Below Vodka and several others we have collected over the past 10years. Been a hard slog to finish education and it's make for a couple of very thirsty boys. Looking forward to a few of the classics that we've served over the years with a box of Dominican cigars we've been saving. Can taste it already More about Frank's Home Bar Essentials

    Tried to cook this twice. First time was for the flatmates and it was fantastic. Second time was for a girl and I got to distracted and almost burnt the house down. Fail. More about Pappardelle with Lamb Ragu

    Awesome stuff, I'm not sure how much washed out is pushing the confines of electronic music, I have heard bits and pieces out there that are very simalar. We always seem to look at how music defines a generation but society is that disjointed and fragmented into sub cultures these days that it's hard to pin down specifics about who we are in terms of music. There is a lot of boundary pushing electronic acts brewing at home in little old New Zealand at the moment. Check out the likes of Mt Eden Dubstep, Minuit, Aum (touring in April) and stuff like Golden Axe who have made music by running high voltage through kids musical toys and are influenced by retro video game music.

  • Can you still find a date in the pub?

    Last post: Scott on 14.03.11 at 01:50 | Started by Scott on 03.11.09

    Having managed a pub in Hamilton for the last couple of years I can say with all confidence that you can pick up woman at your local pub. The pub I manage is by no means where the beautiful people hang out, it's normally full of old drunks, but Friday, Saturday nights and sunny Sunday afternoons often see some talent come out of the woodwork. Coming from a sober point of view I think the biggest problem Kiwi guys face in picking up a woman in a pub comes down to who they are with and their behaviour. We all know Kiwi blokes have a problem with drinking and the number of guys that arrive as nice people and leave as drunken no hopers is laughable. If you head the pub try laying off the sauce if you want to pick up a date, theres nothing worse as a barman then seeing some idiot trying to ask a girl on a date, spitting at her while he talks with a big beer stain on the front of his shirt, not going to happen buddie. But in saying this it seems to work for me as the girls next stop is the friendly barman haha so keep it up boys. More about Can you still find a date in the pub?

  • Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island, Australia

    Philip Island is fantasic if you make it there when there isn't too many people. Had some great nights on the gas with some great mates in a little holiday house there only to be woken up at 7am by 35degree heat and head out for a surf to cool down. I would highly recommend anywhere in and around Philip Island for a holiday but try to avoid the crowds of teenagers and families if you want a holiday with your mates.

  • Soda Soft Drinks Do Not Hydrate Your Body

    Last post: Scott on 14.03.11 at 01:49 | Started by Nick on 13.05.08

    it's not great for you, I drink far too much of the stuff. But it does have its uses. I'm training for a half iron man at the moment and the biggest piece of reoccuring advice I've got is to drink flat coke during the race, apparently a lot better than sports drink alternatives. A lot of this article sounds exaggerated but I can say that when I was a labourer in Uni holidays we used coke as an engine degreaser on tractors and trucks. But you'll find there are worse things for you. If you soak cigarette butts in water you can use that water as a very effective pesticide More about Soda Soft Drinks Do Not Hydrate Your Body
