Last night I found myself in The Bluestone Room, Durham Lane. It's
currently operated by Monteith's Brewing. Sign on the front says it's
the oldest stone building remaining in the commercial centre of Auckland.
However, what really caught my eye - and the reason I mention it - is
that at Sun-Thu 5-6PM & Fri 5-7PM they don't have 'Happy Hour', they
have 'Attitude Adjustment Hour', which certain caught the attention
of this OpenWRT user.
(I didn't ask, least my illusions are shattered...)
