Simply Reds, Wine Tasting at SmokePit & Buoy

Date: August 8th, 2020 - August 8th, 2020

Level One,

The Spencer Hotel,

9 -14 Byron Ave, Takapuna


A Five-Course Food & Matched Wine Evening that celebrates some of our finest local produce alongside equally fine New Zealand Red Wines.


We begin with canapés on arrival then a blind wine tasting followed by a seated dinner, each course matched carefully with a top New Zealand Red Wine. Wine and cheese experts will be on hand to discuss the choices and offer insight.


SmokePit’s Wine Tasting events usually make for a fun night and a chance to meet other food and wine buffs.


Cost: five courses with matched wine for $75 per person.


These evenings are always popular and space is limited. Best to book sooner rather than later.

Encore Theatre Collective is proud to present a dazzling new production of Seussical The Musical, based on the immortal works of Dr Seuss. Seussical brings to life many infamous and well-loved Dr Seuss characters, including Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La Bird and, of course, the Cat in the Hat. These characters and stories weave together in a whimsical and wacky musical extravaganza, played out against an uplifting score, and highlighting the show’s universal messages of love and acceptance – reminding us all that “a person’s a person, no matter how small.”

Since launching in 2019, Encore Theatre Collective has made an incredible mark on the Auckland theatre scene and redefined the standard of youth theatre in New Zealand. Hot on the heels of their sold-out season of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the June season of Seussical features 120 of the country’s finest young talent, ranging in age from 9-23.

With spectacular choreography, unbelievable production design, and slick vocals, Encore Theatre Collective’s Seussical The Musical is the theatrical offering of 2021 that you will not want to miss!
