1 Bust your buffers: Celebrate the opening of the light rail with a dash of sarcasm at Reload Bar Games on Northbourne Avenue at the Fat Controller's Birthday Party. They'll be banging out the Thomas remixes and designing special drinks for the night so you can happily ride the light rail home. There'll be special drink prices for MyWay card holders and for anyone whose name matches any of the engines in Thomas the Tank Engine episodes, or for anyone who comes dressed as a train. April 20, a free 18+ event.
