Kitchen Open Friday Night

Last Friday night saw a number of people enjoying the sunshine on the deck.  We wish to thank Independent Liquor for the umbrellas & bases and the opportunity to promote the "Somersby Label".  A special promotion is running this month, with every purchase of a Somerby product you get a scratchy with the chance to win prizes. Ask your friendly bar volunteer for a Somersby cider this month.

Also a Big Thank to Ginny Coubrough for the wonderful food on Friday Night. Ginny's homemade Lasagne & Moroccan Chicken went down a real treat.

This week we are introducing Alison Dobson-Bonney. Alison's passion for delicious food from quality ingredients has been refined working in diverse locations ranging from San Francisco and London to Auckland.  She has been working as a private caterer for over 20 years, and feels strongly that the best food comes from fresh local ingredients.  She lives locally and has attended the club in the past, including catering for various members. Meals are available from the kitchen after 6pm.
