Well this week they did and we made the most of our day by getting cultural, getting fed and getting lazy...
First stop was the Auckland Art Gallery for TASTE, Food & Feasting in Art.
Andy Warhol and Ruscha were there in all their pop art foodie goodness whilst Brueghel and Lindauer brought "proper paintings" to the table.
My favourite's though... the photographs.
John Daley's, Steves Fish and Chip Shop, Wellington is a corker
Brian Brake's photo's of Picasso and friends made me smile
It was the photo's of the old school artisans that got me all excited though...
Definitely worth a visit if you're passing through, it's on until the 14 February.
Vivace Restaurant was a splendid discovery...yummy cocktails and even better food and the maitre 'd has the most perfect eyebrows in Auckland.
Then home for some sofa time. We watched 'The Mother', a Sunday Theatre piece...
Gordon Bennett! What a woman... Anna Reid takes the title of merry widow to towering new heights.
