BigPipeNZ: more great news for those of you who wish to take advantage of the sweet bar tab (Nate, can you update the OP please) :

Bigpipe and UBER are BFFs (we both love doing *everything* online) so we've arranged with UBER to give all guests 1 free ride on Uber up to $30 to or from Tuihana Cafe on Thursday September 11th.

If you don't know who UBER is (of course you do!):

UBER is a smartphone app that you can use to book private drivers to pick you up in minutes. UBER is in over 200 cities around the world, including New York, London, Paris and now Auckland!   The process is simple:  

1. Download the UBER app on an iPhone, Android or Windows device, and create an account.  

2. Enter the promo code "BIGPIPE" when prompted (you can even do it right now and it's locked in).

3. Check the ETA, 'REQUEST' when you need a car, and enjoy the ride!

Wow that's pretty generous. I may well 'bus' it in and get a ride afterwards!

I finish work at 5pm, so you might be a little early for me? PM me/DM me in twitter if can work around (? you might want to stop over and have a listen to my little portable DAC if coming by to grab me).

It shouldn't show up once you've already entered it. Just to be sure you can always pop the promo code in again.




Lannah - find me on twitter.

Like, in an actual car? With you? I don't think anybody is that desperate for a lift.

Jokes! Back in the box I go. :) Have fun tonight peeps, wish I could make it. Hopefully we'll see some photos online of the event!
