Winner Winner (Vegetarian) Dinner

So we are well into week one of the school holidays.  Are you having the time of your life?  Genuine question, because I freaking am #datsleepinlyfe.  Sleep ins aside, I'm starting to concoct some plans for week two of the hols because after just three days, cabin fever is well and truly setting in.  I honestly had no idea my kids were this loud.  Why are they this loud?!  I am experiencing a little regret about purchasing batteries for their electric piano...

So we were pretty stoked to be invited along to watch Big Bad Wolf at the Bruce Mason Theatre, and I'm honestly even more thrilled to offer a family pass to one of you all!  This promises to be a very cute show:

"Reinventing the classic tale we all know, the Big Bad Wolf is a clever take on Little Red Riding Hood’s old mate. Taking the scary character of the Big Bad Wolf, the show reveals how he’s been misunderstood for years, painting him as an introverted loveable “vegematarian” wolf – that means he eats broccoli and not rabbits. This table-turning tale will have you wondering why you were ever scared of the Big Bad Wolf. You can view the show’s trailer here: https://youtu.be/8wDqTrz58zw"

Entry is as simple as a comment here, on instagram or facebook.  NZ residents only (the show is in Auckland).  I will draw a winner Saturday 14th July.  

For a little taster of what to expect, check out this cute interview with Wolfy:

Q&A: Wolfy from Windmill Theatre Co’s Big Bad Wolf

What inspired you to become vegetarian or has this always been your way of life?
I’ve always been a vegematarian, ever since I was a little baby wolf. My mumma Grand Wolfmaster used to try and make me eat rabbits and other animals, but I’d rather be their friend!

Describe your ideal vegetarian dish in three words?
Green, leafy and delicious.

Fellow vegetarians (fictional or real) who inspire you.
My favourite famous vegetarian is Paul McCartney. Listening to The Beatles is soothing for my big pointy ears, and fills my mind with lovely thoughts.

If a vegetable could speak a thousand words, which vegetable would speak the most to you?
Broccoli! It speaks to me all the time. We recite our favourite poetry together.

As a busy wolf on the move, what are your tips for keeping your lunches fresh?
To keep my lunches fresh I put them in my special lunch box which I keep in my secret tree trunk. It stays nice and cool in there!

Any favourite vegetarian / vegan restaurants you would recommend from your part of the woods?
My favourite stop for vegematarian friendly food in Australia is Lord of the Fries. Their burgers make me want to HOWWWWWL! There’s even a store in Auckland now.

What is something you wish people knew about you?
I wish people knew that my big pointy teeth aren’t for eating people or bunnies!

Favourite poet.
My favourite poet is Spike Milligan! His poems always make me chuckle.

What do you love the most about being vegetarian?
My favourite thing about being a vegematarian is that I can eat lots of delicious food, but still be best friends with Mr Rabbit and Heidi Hood!

Just a reminder, the BIG BAD WOLF runs from July 18-21 at the Bruce Mason Centre, Takapuna.
