AUCKLAND CITY'S METRO MAGAZINE
FEBRUARY 2009 ISSUE
The cover story of the latest issue of our city magazine is Secrets of the City - 100 things every Aucklander should know.
The Bookman, being an avid reader of Metro, was working his way through these secrets compiled by senior writer Simon Wilson, when he came to # 77 and was both astonished and delighted to find beattiesbookblog.blogspot.com as the secret! Wow, thanks Simon, I'm chuffed.
There is also a great story on scooter riding in Auckland which the Bookman, a 15 year veteran of Vespa riding in the City of Sails, found especially interesting. And Wilson also has other stories on fishing and on the Martinborough Wine Festival where he obviously had a very good time.
Then there are the usual pile of staff book reviews, Paul Tudor on wine, Connie Clarkson on food, and a host of other stuff.
Good value Metro, and how lucky we are to have our own city magazine. They are a rare commodity these days.
