Astoria @ Wednesday

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 7-Jun-2006 17:55

Last night I missed the Geekzone Weekly Chat because I had to go out for something else (yes, we geeks do have a life!) and while out in the cold I took a couple of pictures of Astoria, before closing.



Some of you know I visit Astoria, Midland Park in Wellington, every Wednesday, from about 1pm. Since I work from home it's good to come to town and have time to meet some people face to face.

Both Microsoft and Vodafone are located on this building, and for being central is easy for other people to come and join me for lunch or coffee. Astoria has both Cafenet and Telecom NZ Hostpost Wi-Fi services, so I can bring my Tablet PC and work in between meetings.

They make one of the best coffee in town, perhaps not as good as Cafe L'affare, but I don't go there often because is out of the way for other people meeting me. Cafe L'Affare is very good for brunches on Saturday, but they are not open on Sunday. Next to Cafe L'Affare there's the Brooklyn Bakery, which is very child friendly (which is something we need now).

Back to Astoria, they also make one of the best steaks around, if you want them at lunch time.

If you are in town on any Wednesday you can either go there directly or simply contact me or post a comment to confirm I will be there.
