That's SO Hamilton!

18th Jun 19

While we might bear the brunt of chlamydia jokes and are endlessly mocked by Aucklanders, we know this city is — indeed — the city of the future.

And, because we love the mighty Waikato as much as Good George beer and Duck Island ice cream, we’ve come up with a few things that are undeniably, completely and utterly Hamilton.  Here we go…

  • Impressing your out-of-town mates with a visit to the world-class Hamilton Gardens.
  • Instagramming a storm in the Italian Renaissance Garden.
  • Getting annoyed if you have to wait in traffic for anything longer than 10 minutes.
  • Conquering "The Haks" and posting an inspirational selfie from the top.
  • Not going anywhere without seeing someone you know from school (And forget six degrees of separation, it’s two).
  • Getting a dozen Mamas Donuts.
  • Not getting a dozen Mamas Donuts because they’re shut … Again.
  • Braving The Base on the weekend.
  • Instantly regretting your decision when you realise the chaos of the car park.
  • Frothing with anticipation as you wait in line at Duck Island.
  • Ordering three scoops because you can’t choose between white chocolate miso, mint choc chip and peanut butter caramel cookie ... Yes, please!
  • Pairing your meal with Hamilton’s finest export: Good George.
  • Leaving for London after Uni.
  • Coming back when you’re ready to breed / buy a house.
  • Brunching with your BFF at Hayes Common.
  • Reminiscing on the good ol’ days of Bahama Hut, Pie Lab and Monkey Feather.
  • Weekend road trips to Raglan for brunch at The Shack before hitting the beach.
  • Devouring the world’s best cheeseburger from Winner Winner and polishing it off with a slice of Pinky Pie.
  • Driving to Auckland for a shopping trip - Mecca, Zara, H&M, Lululemon.
  • Finishing a night out with a loaf of garlic bread from The Bakehouse.
  • Eating yourself into a food coma at Gourmet In The Gardens.
  • Donning your puffer jacket and taking your mooloo bell to the stadium.
  • Spending Sunday morning eating your way around the Waikato Farmers Market.
  • Getting pumped for Easter and the highly anticipated return of Volare’s hot cross buns.
  • Rounding up your squad for bottomless brunch at Keystone.
  • Braving the Mighty Waikato for a river float.
  • Waking up to a hot air balloon outside your bedroom window and realising Balloons Over Waikato is back for another year.
  • Quietly getting super pumped when you catch a glimpse of a novelty-shaped balloon. OMG ... Darth Vader!
  • Blaming Jafa's and / or investment buyers for the rising house prices.
  • Realising that Hamilton will forever be home.
