Welcome to East meets West at its mouth-watering best. Parnell’s Woodpecker Hill is where the flavours of Asia meet the wood-smoked succulence of American Barbecue. Meltingly smokey, slow-cooked meats take on the tastebud-popping zing of lemongrass and ginger, coriander and chilli, cumin and Vietnamese mint. With it’s layered stacks of steaming bamboo baskets and cocktails full of tropical thunder, Woodpecker Hill’s Elemental menu draws its inspiration from FIRE, WATER and AIR. Banana leaf parcels of chicken pop with the zing of lime and coriander, and our handmade lobster,scallop and prawn crystal dumplings and king crab, shrimp, pork and bean shu mai dumpling parcels burst with flavour. In our Oasis Dream Creaming Soda cocktail, we steam the vanilla pod with palm sugar to produce a tropical monsoon cloud you can drink. 196 Parnell Road, Parnell (Carpark located at 290 Parnell Road) +64 (9) 309 5055 http://woodpeckerhill.co.nz/

Each Friday evening in July (5th, 12th, 19th and 26th, from 6pm-6.45pm, four otherworldly travellers will activate Heard Park and amplify the play of geometry, light and shadow created by the HYBYCOZO installation in a series of dance rituals dedicated to the four classical elements; Earth, Air, Fire and Water. The performers appear as mystical intergalactic vikings with large costume and prop pieces that draw inspiration from mystic symbolism, the vikings and the cosmos. click here for more details
