Goodbye Sweet Potato


It’s done, it’s over, starships were not meant to fly and the Big Kumara closed its doors for the last time on Saturday night. The end of an era, for the time being.

The owner of the bar and its parent company, Dixon Cuba Hospitality Limited, Jonno Huntington was searching for someone to buy the bar after the IRD sought liquidation for the parent company in late August.

The hearing will be held on October 8 at the Wellington High Court.

Hunting had reportedly received offers for the bar, but it was unclear whether he had entered negotiations with any buyers, and whether a new buyer would intend to reopen to bar.

Goodbye sweet potato.

If you love something let it go…


“I broke my front teeth at the Big Kumara in February 2010 whilst working behind the bar at the first Foam Party. I picked up one front tooth but the other is forever lost in the foamy darkness somewhere behind the bar.”

“it’s devistating”
“I am soooooo sad!!!” “Thank fuck for that.”

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
