We Say/You Say: Bottomless Brunches

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Kāpiti Observer

Hi neighbours,

What do you think about the Wellington City Council's move to ban "bottomless brunches?"

All-you-can-drink alcoholic beverages over a restaurant brunch could be in jeopardy after councillors indicated a ban on such deals.

Several establishments across the city offer unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages for a fixed price and this has led to complaints of excessive drinking.

Wellington City Council spokesman Richard MacLean mentioned that several complaints were being followed up by council and police regarding these "all you can drink" deals.

“The ‘bottomless brunch' arrangements are a clear breach of liquor-licensing laws - which are designed to rule out irresponsible consumption of alcohol and intoxication,” MacLean said.

To the boy racers going 80km on Winara ave

Justin from Waikanae

Sooner or later I will be ready to capture you on camera and will hand the footage to police who will be able to calculate your speed ( distance/time) and subsequently impound your cars. Thereby doing you a favour because if you ever kill a child your lives will be ruined beyond your comprehension so its up to you : keep racing in a residential street or prepare to start biking.
We already have the beginning of your licence plate you were too fast for the rest but we’ll get there.

Pet of the Day: Siam the klepto-cat

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

This week we feature Siam the klepto-cat. Not sure where Siam lives but the submission made by Sine Goldfinch was to good to ignore.
"Siam came in my cat door six years ago with this sponge in his mouth and dropped it at my feet as a gift for me. His owner gave him to me because he just refused to go and six years on, he still brings the same sponge to me every night. I'm pretty sure it is the equivalent of roses in his mind."
