Getting Our Funky Freak On.

Love it or loath it, Friday February 14 is Valentines Day. And whilst some like to buy into the the corporate myth of celebrating the martyrdom of Saint Valentinus at the hands of Emperor Claudius II (seriously, that's what the 14th commemorates), most of us just try to pretend it doesn't exist. 

Fortunately for us (single) bitter misanthropes, Golding's Free Dive is having a beer launch! On Friday from 6pm we'll be launching the 2014 Vintage of Funk Estate's Super Afro-Disiac; a beer laced with as many 'night-time stimulates' as possible. 

Ok, so maybe we can't entirely escape the Valentines thing. But if a stonking big Imperial Stout infused with chilli, chocolate, maca root, vanilla, honey and figs sounds like your kind of thing, then you should make it down to Golding's.

Who knows, it might end with some 'night-time activity'with that cute beer-geek you've had your eye on for a while...

Music, Sport and National Observances

What a week we've got coming up! We've got a public holiday, a gig AND one of the biggest sporting events of the year!

Starting with the least exciting: Thursday (February 6) is Waitangi Day. As you commemorate one of the more important days in New Zealand's history, also keep in mind that Golding's and Pomodoro are open as usual, and we have a firm disbelief in surcharges. 

Next on the list is this Sunday's gig (February 2). Adam Page and The Counts are making their last appearance at Golding's before Adam jets back to Australia-land. Each gig has been more riotous than the last, and this one promises to top them all. Head on down at 4pm to catch the show. 

Finally, next week has one of the biggest sporting events of the year: Super Bowl XLVIII (what were you thinking of?). On Monday (February 3) The Seattle Seahawks will be taking on the Denver Broncos (Go Broncos!). We'll be rigging up a big screen to play the game, and we've secured a live feed from the States that includes commercials! 

We'll also be putting on some lovely fresh American IPA and lining up some food specials. Beyond our beloved Reuben Schluman, we'll also be serving Mac 'n' Cheese, possibly in sandwich form...

Co-incidentally, we seem to have neglected to pay our Sky this week. So any other sporting events that might be happening next week, will not be screened...

Golding's NYE Cook-out


Hi kids, so we're planning something a little special for the afternoon of the 31st. We can't really do a big countdown at night cause of our licence so instead we're gonna whip up some steak and falafel on the deck, and close a little early so we can do some celebrating elsewhere! 

It's been a big year for us but we couldn't have done it without you, so happy new year!

BBQ on from 1pm, till sunset.

Adam Page and the Counts

It's time to announce another exciting new first for Golding's: our first ever live gig! 

Yes, this Sunday 22nd (tomorrow!) beardy-saxophonist Adam Page will be rocking along with Riki Gooch and Ed Zuccollo, AKA The Counts. They'll be playing a special set of funked-up Christmas songs, along with some old favourites. 

The set runs from 4pm. Space is limited, so get here early. And we don't believe in cover charges.
