Ne­ol­o­gisms Fri­day, 6pm Af­ter a long day at uni pre­tend­ing to be pro­duc­tive, I’ll head down to The Wine Cel­lar to catch up with some friends. Over a drink or five, we’ll hang out, string­ing to­gether lots of words that end with ‘ism’ to sound smarter than we re­ally are. Af­ter that, we’ll head to Q or Base­ment Theatre to catch a show. 183 Karanga­hape Rd; 305 Queen St; Lower Greys Ave, cen­tral city

On the ˉ d-floor Fri­day, 10pm O In the mood for bad danc­ing and even worse singing, we’ll go to Danny Doolans for some clas­sic jams. 204 Quay St, Viaduct

Go­ing up Satur­day, 12pm If the weather’s nice, I’ll head up Mount Eden with a cof­fee and a good book – cur­rently Do­minic Hoey’s Ice­land. One of the friendly lo­cal cats (@acat­called­kevin), will prob­a­bly be around to hang out with me and en­joy Maun­gawhau’s stun­ning tran­quil­ity.

Rum­mage Satur­day, 2pm With what­ever money I have left­over from the night be­fore, I’ll head out to check out some of the best lo­cal op-shops. I’ll start on K Road and work my way out­ward, often end­ing at Glen Innes.

Oldie but a goodie Satur­day, 8pm If my friends and I haven’t fi­nessed our way into a party that we’re def­i­nitely not cool enough for, we’ll stum­ble into New Flavour with some bot­tles of cheap wine. Lump­ing to­gether the last of our ‘course-re­lated costs’, we’ll manage to con­struct a pretty im­pres­sive tower of dumplings and spring onion pan­cakes. 537 Do­min­ion Rd, Bal­moral

Week­end notes Sun­day, 10am The morn­ing starts with a cof­fee at Bestie Cafe to shake off dusty rec­ol­lec­tions from the last cou­ple of nights. The notebook and pen will come out and I’ll start scrib­bling po­ems, lists and ter­ri­ble draw­ings over the cof­fee-stained pages. 183 Karanga­hape Rd
