      • While Our Tim got to take a sneak peek at Tuatara’s new Te Aro brewery and bar before it opened, I had the onerous task of drinking free beer representing The Wellingtonista at the official opening function.

      • With a large number of the Tuatara brewery staff being based in Wellington it does make sense for Tuatara to start something more centrally so that at least not everyone has to spend a couple of hours everyday driving to Kapiti.

    • Serious Monkey(ish) business at Wellington Zoo
      • 29 Sep 2014
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Okay, let’s get the puns out of the way. While it is never inappropriate to spank your monkey in public, and only Peter Gabriel can shock the monkey, at Wellington Zoo you can, however, touch some monkeys. Sort of. Well, the touching part is correct, but technically the Black-and-White Ruffed Lemurs aren’t actually primates, they’re a kind of pre-primate. Okay, I should have written notes, but I WAS TOUCHING A LEMUR at the very kind invitation of Wellington Zoo to try out their new Lemur Encounter.

    • Monty has his eye out for a new home
      • 6 Jul 2011
      • MONTY the one-eyed kitten and his mate Bear are hoping for a home. They were among about 20 cats on display in Brooklyn when SPCA volunteers held an adoption run there. The scheme sees association volunteers visit suburbs at weekends to try to find homes for their charges and allows people to adopt and care for a kitten or cat which has been orphaned, sick or bottle-fed from birth.

    • And you thought we were joking about the Octopus threat?
      • 25 Apr 2010
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Earlier this month we read about an octopus off the South Coast that mugged an innocent diver and took his valuable new camera. The news flashed around the world and everyone had a bit of a chuckle at the diver's expense. Not so fast, laughing boys (and girls). It turns out that this is but the latest episode in a long history of criminal behaviour by the city's cephalopod citizenry.

      • You know there's that cat you see on the way to the bus stop - the one that rolls around on the footpath and lets you tickle his belly, and you've nicknamed him Captain Choicepants? Well, that's a neighbourhood cat. Inspired by the Neighbour Cats zines, Petra Jane has created a public Google map of neighbourhood cats around Wellington and beyond.

    • Eva Dixon's to get the boot from the Zoo
      • 17 Feb 2008
      • The Wellingtonista
      • The DomPost reports that Eva Dixon's Cafe is being given the old heave-ho from Wellington Zoo. The contract for the running of the Zoo's cafe came up last October, and, as co-owner John Heald said... We were under the impression it wouldn't have been a problem and were waiting for the paperwork to come through ... But no!
