At the end of last week Dave and I were treated to an awesome experience courtesy of the fab team at www.ezibed.com
By following ezibed on facebook and twitter I won two tickets to the More FM vineyard tour at Ascension Vineyard in Matakana plus accommodation for the night in Warkworth! I was so stoked, it couldn’t have come at a better time considering the antics of my son last week. Dave and I were so ready for a wee break.
The weather was 10/10, the traffic on the way up not too bad and we found our motel super quick thanks to the primo direction given on the ezibed booking confirmation. The Central Motel in the heart of Warkworth is perfect for a quick little get-away. The room had recently been refurbished was large and airy and very clean. It was also a sweet walk to the free shuttle bus at Mahurangi College which would drive us to the concert.
The venue was amazing, Ascension is a beautiful and intimate place to enjoy a fully kiwiana concert. I had packed a picnic dinner of cheeses, dips, crackers, pastrami, cold cordon bleu, fresh salad from our garden and pastries for dessert. It was a lovely meal when paired with the Flora wine from Ascension, similar to my fav Pinot Gris.
Boh Runga kicked off the show and played an amazing set. Her sister Bic paled in comparison and appeared as a superfluous back-up singer to Dave Dobbyn and Neil Finn who played the second set of the evening (they started their set with Weather With You – LOVE). Special guest Che Fu was also a highlight, bringing the awesome ‘Chains’ back from the ’90’s (i think?) and his cover of Come Together with Boh Runga was super funky.
It was an amazing night and a concert that I would definately pay to attend in future years. Ezibed are still giving away packages for other dates on the tour so get tweeting and bookfacing and what-not and make sure you are in the draw!
