A Wellington bar is giving away tickets to this weekend’s Wellington Sevens, but only to people who buy a certain beer.
Backbencher’s managing director Alistair Boyce said the bar was given 20 tickets by the Hospitality Association last Friday.
He wasn’t sure what to do with them, so decided to give them away to people who bought an Emerson’s beer.
Not that long ago all 30,000 tickets or so sold out within three minutes. Today they can only fill quarter to a third of the stadium and are giving tickets away.
This is what happens when the powers that be decide that the event needs to be less fun and more family focused.
