Yay! Summer is here.
Smash Palace is now open seven days from 3pm.
See you all over the summer.
Woo-hoo. The days are getting longer and it is starting to feel like summer. Summer is good for us as it makes far more sense to come to Smash Palace when the weather is warm.
We are currently open Wed to Sun from 3pm.
From the beginning of November we will go to seven day from 3pm. In order to do this we will need a couple more staffmembers. If you know of anyone looking for a job over the summer send them down with a CV.
It is looking like this will be our last Summer on Victoria St so make sure you get in and enjoy the place while it lasts.
Blimmin heck. Do you know what time of the year it is? The time that people start calling up and booking Christmas functions.
We’ve already booked a couple of dates so if you want to have your Christmas party at the coolest bar in town you’d better be in quick.
This will probably be our last Christmas on this site so make sure you get your booking in. Then you can say you used to like Smash Palace better at its old location in years to come.
Give me a call or an email and we will sort out your party.
I’ve been getting a bit of criticism recently:
“Johnny, since you started your Press column you have been neglecting your blog. I enjoy it much more as you are free to talk about poos and other inappropriate things.”
So this is me trying to kick off some more regular blog updates for summer.
You’d think with the lack of posting lately that nothing has been happening. But we have been working away over winter trying to get ready for what will probably be our last summer on this site. In the upcoming weeks we will have a lot of exciting updates for you all so watch this space and I promise to update more regularly.
A wee update on the mud-plug we did a couple of weeks ago. The wee chummy performed admirably and while we didn’t win, I did beat Greg and that is all that really matters.
Here is a nice photo somebody sent through to me…
The New Zealand International Film Festival is about to kick-off in Christchurch. There are a ton of great films playing and you should make an effort to get out and support the festival.
I’m pleased to see my old mate Zoe Macintosh doing well in the world of directing. Her Deadly Ponies Gang has been receiving excellent reviews and is doing well to be included in the festival at all.
As a show of support, we will be making a bit of an event of the film. So get your ticket and meet us at Smash Palace an Sunday August 18 at 3:45pm. We will have a beer and do a group-ride thing up to the film.
So get your ticket and support one of NZ’s best up-and-coming filmmakers.
If you are wondering what to do on Saturday night (July 6), why not come down and see the always awesome DJ Missy G at Smash Palace. She will be spinning vinyl from 9pm so come down for a Bodgie and a boogie.
Don’t forget our Bike Night Masterclass tonight.
Thank Christ the weather has improved and drinking at Smash Palace has once again become an enticing proposition – before we know it summer will be sneaking up again.
Hey, we are stoked with the publicity Smash Palace has been receiving all over the world, not too bad for a scruffy wee bus in a backwater town. Click here to see the latest article that we have been quoted in. In England’s telegraph newspaper no less. I love to think of my buddies in London reading it and saying “I know that guy”.
