and in The Pit Bar...

The Pit was defintely the cosiest little bar in Wellington last week, and proved to be the perfect place to shelter from the winter chill! Now that it's a bit warmer this week, come on in and make a night of it!


Opening night for Chalk, plus happy hour from 5.30pm.


Another happy hour from 5.30pm!


Closing nights for Chalk and Glorious - should be a big one...

Win cool stuff!

Was Robert Muldoon really NZs most evil Prime Minister ever? To be in to win a double pass to the opening of slouching toward bethlehem and find out, simply tell me your favourite fictional evil leader. For me it's a tie between Darth Vader and Sauron. I'm a geek...

Congrats to last weeks winner Julia Capon who will be joining us for the opening night of Chalk. Awesome!
