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…

“Dear God No”

“about to email my lecturer to apply for an extension after the loss of a loved one. Forever in my heart The Big Kumara”

“Fuck u big k”

“when bitchy girls were rude to me, I put full fat coke in their drinks instead of diet. VENGEANCE IS SWEET”

“Wtf just happened?”


“never forgive, never forget”

“your nightlife experiences back there in new zealand is so boring, shit/ depressing/full of all you antisocial uptight boring sheep shaggers.i didint enjoy your courtenay place at all.”

“I am soooooo sad!!!” “Thank fuck for that.”
