Silo Park is back! And kicking off this weekend at Auckland’s Wynyard Quarter

From 5pm tomorrow, Aucklanders can find everything they need to end the working week and crack into the weekend. Grab dinner from an eclectic array of street food style stalls, browse a variety of pop-up clothing stores, and toast the end of the week at the SILO PARK BAR.

Once fed and watered, visitors can grab a beanbag and settle in for Auckland’s only regular open-air cinema, SILO CINEMA; launching its season tomorrow night with 80’s comedy classic, ‘The Blues Brothers'.

Saturday is home to the SILO MARKETS, happening every week from 12pm to 6pm, and offering a veritable mix of food stalls, vintage clothing, contemporary artists, street performers and more. Once a month, Silo Park plays host to some of New Zealand’s best musical talent at SILO SESSIONS – the first edition taking place on Saturday 1 December with ‘Weird Together presents World Together’, curated by George FM’s Nick D.

Scoop Review Of Books: Don’t Eat The Fish

On 'The Catch' by Michael Field What the ecologically edible lists don’t appear to take into account – and they should – is slavery... It’s not an easy read, but it’s definitely near the top of my listicle of “5 Political Books You Must Read This Year”. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
