Parnell Waiters' Race 2018

Calling all waiters… It’s time to RACE and WIN!

Parnell throws down the napkin in a challenge to Auckland restaurants!

The Parnell Waiters’ Race is back in 2018 on Sunday November 18th in the brand new, exciting location right next door to La Cigale French Market.

That’s right! We are giving the top waiters in the City of Sails another opportunity to represent their restaurants and race it out to win the title of Auckland’s best waiter.

The grand prize for our winning waiter? Return flights and accommodation to an exciting international destination (currently top secret), and the prize for their represented restaurant? A Renault New Zealand CAR for a YEAR!

This is one serious competition, and all waiters will be racing to win for themselves AND for their restaurants.

Wait staff can represent their restaurant in a variety of different activities designed to test agility, skill, speed, professionalism and flair.

Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your skills amongst the best of the best. Limited entry numbers so register NOW! You’ve got plenty of time to train…

Put your restaurant on the ‘best of’ MAP!
