To whom it may concern,
I have just arrived to Auckland City and I'm looking for a good night out. I am German so I like mostly beer, good music and random acts of kindness. Not to mention that I'm on a tight budget and only here in Auckland for a few days before I venture off on the rest of my travels. What can you recommend to me as a 'good night out' in the city where I can find other travelers like myself? I am staying with Nomads Fat Camel.
Yours sincerely, Solo traveller, seeking friends asap!
Hello Solo! Well my friend, you are in luck because Thursday night is the one and only FRENZI BAR CRAWL. Some may describe the Frenzi Bar Crawl as EPIC or 'the worst hangover of my life'. Every Thursday sign up sheets get taken around to most of the hostels around the city where fellow travelers, like yourself, sign their life away. It is only $10 to sign up and this includes 4 bars, 4 drinks, prizes and EPIC GOODNESS! You may as well sellotape your wallet and phone to your hands now! These crazy cats know the town back to front.
Starting off at 8.30pm from The Camel Bar, Fort Street you may find yourself doing some crazy stuff in order to win some of the prizes given away on the crawl. Not only that, you could be made to eat something you never thought you would ever eat. In saying that, you may meet someone you thought you would never meet ;-) only on Thursdays! Til quite late, so if you have an early appointment or bus, you may want to reschedule, this is a not to be missed bar crawl!
If you aren't around for a Thursday night then you can also guarantee yourself an awesome night with the party animals from the Big Night Out Bar crawl! This Bar crawl happens in Auckland, Dunedin and Queenstown 5 nights a week (in Auckland that's Fri, Sat, Tues, Weds and Thurs) so they're pros on how to have fun! It'll cost you $25 to sign up and this includes 6 bars, 6 drinks, food and prizes. This is an awesome way to check out the nightlife in the city with some of the coolest cats around. It starts at 9pm just down the road from most hostels in the city, offering huge discounts at each and every place you go choose to party at!
The best part about the pub crawl is waking up the next day... on your way down to the ground floor you meet a few people in the lift that greet you with a massive hand shake and a big grin "YOU WERE AWESOME LAST NIGHT!" and in your head you have absolutely no idea what you did. How did you become so awesome overnight? The golden rule - what happens on the pub crawl, stays on facebook! So ask Reception where you can find the photos and make sure you untag yourself before your mum spots you!
** Take your ID with you, bars will not serve you if you look under 25, they also will not serve you if you are intoxicated so Drink Responsibly! **
