    • Review: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

      • The Wellingtonista
      • A Midsummer Night’s Dream was the perfect pick for Summer Shakespeare, traditionally held in the Dell in Wellington’s Botanical Gardens at night in the middle of summer, but then the production moved to the basement theatre at Te Whaea in Newtown, and things pivoted from the usual.

    • Towards Tangi-te-Keo
      • 1 May 2016
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Up the back of Newtown — past the hospital, past New Zealand’s first branch library, past the community display-window where the Conscientious Objectors’ memorials absent Pukeahu Park quietly underscore ANZAC celebrations — runs a narrow path marking the spine of Tangi-te-Keo (later Mt Victoria).

    • Newtown: it's sometimes more than a bit shit
      • 27 Sep 2009
      • The Wellingtonista
      • On Wednesday night, our next door neighbours were burgled. It's times like this that I need to be reassured of the good things in Newtown. Things like: * The otters at the zoo! * The haloumi at Cafe Kialis * The macademia & chicken salad at Baobob What are your favourite things about Newtown right now?

    • Intersection of Impending Death
      • 14 May 2009
      • The Wellingtonista
      • So, the John St/Riddiford St/Adelaide Rd intersection has undergone a bit of a lights phasing tweak. It took this particular Wellingtonista by surprise when, last week, I confidently started to cross John St as the lights turned to red, only to discover that instead of my little green man, I was now the target for traffic coming down from Adelaide Rd.

    • People's Empire

      • Newtown may or may not be a bit shit, but their right-on coffee company People's Coffee (sorry, I couldn't resist adding the apostrophe) certainly know their shit. Their presence in central Wellington is expanding, and two recently-opened cafés proudly stock the People's brand: Meow and Mon Ami.

      • The Wellingtonista
      • About half the Wellingtonista now call Newtown home, so we thought it was about time we did some exploring of the area. Therefore, on this coming Saturday, we're going to be doing a Newtownista Pub Crawl, and you should come with us!

    • Coffee in Newtown?
      • 1 Jan 2008
      • The Wellingtonista
      • Can anybody help me locate a decent coffee in Newtown during these interminable public holidays? Peoples’ is shut until Monday, as is the café at the Med. The only option I have located thus far is Eva Dixon’s at the Zoo (which was a lovely walk in the sun) but resulted in a small latté in a large takeaway cup topped by prodigious amounts of froth, cost me $5.20 including the surcharge, and tasted like filth. So, tomorrow I need a better option. Any ideas?
