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.
Super cool DJs this Saturday night with PV Seizure from 10pm. Come along for a wee boogie.
Wow, Bike Night is getting really big. With the warm weather the place has been at capacity for the last few Thursdays.
Last night Greg was assembling the rear-end off Garry’s De Dion Bouton. While it is a car, and thus against the rules of bike night, Garry is such a smooth talker that we thought we’d help him get his silly old car running. Once we get it going we can convince him to sell it and buy a Gordon Keeble.
For something from 1905 it is pretty amazing that this rear end was used in racing cars tright through until the 1980s. It was nice to see the legend up-close-and-personal.
