Howick Village Radio 88.1FM Listen online www.howickvillageradio.co.nz BEHIND the shadow of hyped about cities, such as Los Angeles and Las Vegas, there lies a gem further north waiting to be dis- covered in Western America. Described as an up and com- ing place to visit — and judging by the number of Kiwi credit cards swiped in the diverse state — Oregon could be the new des- tination en vogue. So what does it offer? Turning up to the Travel Oregon event held at the Viaduct’s Harbour- side Seafood Bar & Grill, the ﬁrst thing that caught the eye was the free-ﬂowing wine and beer, all homebrewed from the evidently abundant state. That sentiment was further cemented by snippets of con- versation — an epicurean haven, wine country, and America’s new food Eden were all recur- ring themes. The coastal region offers culi- nary indulgence of the highest with its wineries, breweries, artisan foods and seafood galore. Weird foods unlikely to be found anywhere else in the world also feature – bacon maple doughnut anyone? The latter is a Voodoo Dough- nut creation — an export from Oregon’s most populated city, Portland — and an example cited when I asked about the signiﬁ- cance of the puzzling tagline ‘Keep Portland Weird’. Suspicions conﬁrmed it seemed that, Portland, also known as ‘beervana’ for obvi- ous reasons, has a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ that only a visit would make clear! I also discovered that Oregon- ians love their little Oregon-isms such as ‘wiking’, a combination of wine touring and hiking. With its great outdoors, I can see why. From sprawling beaches, national parks, forests and wildlife refuges, to pictur- esque lakes, rivers, hot springs, and majestic snow-capped tops, Oregon has a robust list of out- door offerings for the adrenaline junkie. Ski lovers are in luck too. The skiing season never ends there and it is home to the largest night skiing area in the Land of the Free. Sounds a lot like New Zealand? Surprise, surprise the folks from Travel Oregon admit they have some affection for Aotearoa due to its similarity to the homeland. And no doubt, it, too, will have similar appeal for the Kiwi crav- ing something familiar with a hint of weird thrown in for good measure. If your curiosity has been piqued like mine, head to www.traveloregon.com which has a wealth of information on the unconventional travel desti- nation. Hawaiian Airlines ﬂies from Auckland to Portland via Hono- lulu and Air New Zealand ﬂies to LA, from which a connecting ﬂight to Oregon is just over two hours. Natalie Tan Dining and Leisure In awe of Oregon! COLOURS OF CHRISTMAS THE Pakuranga Choral Society brings fresh life to old favourites in this year’s Christmas concert, The Colours of Christmas. The audience will hear the likes of “In the Bleak Mid Win- ter, “Gabriel’s Message” and “Joy to the World” to say noth- ing of “Jingle Bells” and Away in a Manger. They will also hear new Christmas music including “The Colours of Christmas” which gives the concert its name. This work was composed by the director of the Cambridge Singers, John Rutter, whose CD, The Colours of Christmas has been the inspiration for the concert’s entire programme. Exuberant singing at rehears- als has indicated the spirit of Christmas is already alive and well among choir members, due in part, to conductor Nigel Weeks, who constantly impels the choir to greater efforts and skilful execution. Nigel is currently Head of Music at Macleans College. Instrumentalists from the college will also participate in the concert which takes place 2pm on Sunday December 2, at All Saints Anglican Church, Howick. Audience participation is a given and refreshments at interval will encourage enjoy- ment of the “Spirit of Christ- mas” in all senses of the word. Tickets available at the door – adults $25; seniors $20; chil- dren $10.
