Now, I’ve come into a bit of criticism for not having updated the blog for about a year. In my defence it was hacked by someone but to be honest that was resolved about 11 months ago.
So my only excuse is laziness.
Smash Palace is coming toward the end of its current life. I would like to use this forum to communicate with you, the loyal customers, what we are doing to relocate the place.
In the meantime, this could her our last ever Xmas and NY eve parties. We’ve flown Lil’ Tim out from Melbourne and he is going to pay the gig to end all gigs on Xmas eve.
Watch this space for much more regular updates.
This Saturday January 18 we are having a Goodbye Blue Monday reunion party.
Lots of the old faces will be there and we will be entertained by Tim, who has flown in specially for the gig.
DJs Missi G and Skew-whiff will be spinning records between sets.
Foosball turnament with bar tab prize.
Special appearances from Steve of the Month and Customer of the Year 2010.
See y’all on Saturday.
We will be closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. Other than that we will be open as usual.
See you all over the break.
Don’t forget this Sunday December 15 we are having our second annual Family Fun Day.
Grab your classic car or bike, pack the picnic, pack the kids and meet at the old Goodbye Blue Monday site (172 High St – opposite C1 Coffee) on Sunday.
Slow vehicles departing at 11am and the quickies at 11:30.
We will be heading out to the kind folks at Waipara West Winery for a picnic and some fun activities.
See you all on Sunday.
Yay! Summer is here.
Smash Palace is now open seven days from 3pm.
See you all over the summer.
Poor wee Greggy is having to sell some of his bikes to finance his new purchase.
So if you’ve been hanging around on Bike Night and wanting to get involved in this dirt bike thing, pop down for a test ride. You get guaranteed entry to the Shearers Run 2014 – the limited spots are filling fast.
This is the one for you if you want a pure dirt bike. Click here to link to TradeMe.
And this one is for you if you want to ride on the road and join the Smash Palace Scramblers. Click here for a link.
They’re both well priced and serviced by our resident Piston Whisperer.
Here is a link to this week’s Press Column.
I have been getting sick of people bad-mouthing the Irish people that have moved to Christchurch for the rebuild and thought I’d stick up for them.
I’ve already had one Irishman phone me to say “thank-you” which is nice. Sadly, some people mistook my opinion as racist in itself which was not my intention.
So to the Irish. I think you’re great and I hope you all meet nice Kiwi ladies, settle down, and stay forever.
With the onset of summer, we have added four new burgers to our menu.
There are two brand new Lamb burgers, a Hawaiian Chicken and a tempura Aubergine. For more information see the “menu” tab.
Anna and Nicky have worked really hard on getting the burgers perfect so we hope you all enjoy them.
Also, we are now making most of the components of the burgers. So you get our very own buns with handmade aioli and pickles which we think makes our burgers pretty special.
