Gish comedy at Valley D Vine


Gish is the first live comedian show at Valley D Vine, another Hawke’s Bay first by events man and wild food chef Greg Miller. When I first saw Gish, I recognised a hat nod to Billy T James kiwi humour, laden with stereotypes of kiwi history in his AotearoHa gig. Watch the first couple of […]

Bangkok House – Napier’s authentic favourite


When Tweet2Eat visited Napier Thai eatery Bangkok House last week, host Gavin and chef Somjit shared some of the delicious dishes that have kept them on the map – and on many locals’ and visitors’ go-to list – throughout their eight years at the Dickens Street site.

Braised duck risotto

In one short year, Mister D has shown how it’s done, when it comes to serving Hawke’s Bay for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinners.

Get a group together for dinner and have fun learning about whiskey

2013 Whiskey Appreciation Evening

The inaugural 2013 Hawke’s Bay Whiskey Appreciation Evening takes place in just under a month on Saturday 20th April. It’s not a stretch to say Paul Anderson is a whiskey  aficionado having collected some 130 bottles in his time. Unlike most collectors, Paul has these bottles including some very old vintages, on display and available for […]

The Thirsty Whale shares their success in 2012

The Thirsty Whale Sundeck

The Thirsty Whale in Ahuriri attracts two distinct crowds. The daytime crowd that comes to enjoy a drink, a meal and the stunning view, and the night time crowd that come to let their hair down at the bar and on the dancefloor. If you’re part of the latter group you may not have visited […]
