Guestbook, 1997-2001

merry xmas everyone. the arc cafe, that heart in a town full of clubs, that humble home for the remarkable! if it weren’t for the staff and trustees, who give so much to keep the place alive! overworked and underpaid or even unpaid … from the other side of the world i look back and think you guys are incredible. it’s a beautiful thing. so if you’re reading this in dunedin, keep an eye out for the arc angels and shake a hand or hug or shout out… because dunedin is made the amazing place it is by people like these, make no mistake! hey! love to you all, dear friends, i miss you terribly. i can’t get back in feb as i hoped but will see you in may for sure… go on, write to me, tell me stories… xx e.

I loved Dunedin, i´ve been there in 1998, and Arc Cafe was the best place i went there for sure. The people and the music were just great, and there was such good energy in the place. I think i´ll be there again one day soon…

In answer to the R18 thing, it is just the law in NZ. We’d love to have younger people too but there is no way around that law if you sell alchol. Sorry.
the law
– Tuesday, May 23, 2000 at 17:53:52 (NZST)

The only thing I don’t understand is….why are you R18? I’m under 18 (but at varsity), I’m a songwriter and guitarist, and I would *love* to hear some live music, get some inspiration, and drink some good coffee. Why are there signs on the door saying I’m not welcome? Do you think young people will ruin your atmosphere? Young people who want to go to Arc go for the same reason everyone else does – because it’s wonderful. Your front page says you are ‘non-exclusive’…..well dammit I feel excluded. You’re a *cafe* for f**ks sake, not a pub. I don’t want to drink. I just want to listen…. Answers, anyone?

We were in Dunedin for three days in early February (9, 10 & 11) and spent a couple of hours each day/evening in the Arc. What a great place! Thick vegan pizza slices, pints of Otago Dark, free internet access, terrific music – what more could anyone ask for? Too bad you can’t do “take aways” here on our island in Maine! Oh well, we will just have to come back to Dunedin!

Hello Arc Cafe, Greetings from Atlanta, Georgia USA! Great website, I’ll check back again to hear some music. I am an amateur guitar player, and I enjoy a variety of styles. I also have been trying to track down an old friend in Dunedin. At college in the States we played basketball on the same team and roomed together. He returned to Dunedin after college where his family lives. His name is Chris Pollard, and his hometown is Gore. He’s about 6 foot 8 inches tall, also plays some guitar, is very funny, and most likely would be known to hang out at places like the Arc Cafe. He is probably around 32 years old now. My wife and I would love to hear how he is doing. If anyone is interested in forwarding this message, I would greatly appreciate it. I can send a photograph also. Thanks and may God bless, John

this i miss about living in dunedin by sabrina: living with the cool kids at 515 great king 1997, and 24 pitt 1999. watching havoc and cow those flavored tuna packs, especially lemon pepper mmmmm listening to david bowie and prince with brendon on the front porch on a sunny day with some cold steinies. watching yardies at 21st’s fush and chups with tomato sauce spelling programme, realise, colour, etc. o week at otago scarfies, the kids and the movie. st. paul’s cathedral choir kids (the boy’s choir) hoyt’s, empire and that other one down prince’s st. bagpipes at the graduations all that wine and cheese how the professor’s all got pissed with the students. saying ‘pissed’ instead of drunk. the almighty cook (1997) and the picture of the three budweiser chicks on the stairs. 91 fm radio one the accents the girls: sarah, sheridan & laura the boys: b, b, c, m, g, a, m, a, etc. inspiring dr. speirs marama singers watching g surf at st. kilda the leith bath st. tull and the lovely smorgasborg of desserts mcdonald’s kiwi burger (that’s a joke) the weather (so’s that) the pancakes at capers powder coffee mix buying kava at new world big fresh and all their bin samples raro jugs at the cook and kc’s hokey pokey ice cream and lion bars more sheep than you ever want to see in your life showing our asses with ‘all blacks’ painted across the cheeks at 1997 bledisloe vs. wallabies fat lady’s arms hahei beach in coromandel paradiso in nelson taking the interislander sunset inn, taupo hiking copeland hot pools and almost dying with kim & co. hiking abel tasman with shan and stine and lovin it. trying to kayak in mavora lakes at fuel with sarah and sheridan collecting shells and climbing rocks at ara moana listening to b sing at tunnel beach playing risk exponents on the radio happy times with brandon love, v, sabrina p.s. america still sucks, but san francisco has proven to be lovely. …to be continued

Osaka, Nippon – Thursday, February 10, 2000 at 01:27:33 (NZDT)

Have been coming to the Arc regularly (like every day) for the last couple of months. The food is delicious (although some of the spelling is a bit ropey), and the gigs I’ve attended have been excellent (especially the Xmas party, when Martin Phillipps proved beyond a doubt that he is the greatest musician this country has ever produced). One thing that does need seeing to, though, is use – or rather abuse – of the Internet. Many of the people who come in here flagrantly disregard the 25-minute rule – one favourite trick is to lift the card out when there are only 5 minutes to go and then put it back in, thus returning the timer to 25 minutes. I think a more sophisticated timing system that forbids this “cheating” needs to be installed. Or you could change the notice to “staying on longer than 25 minutes is punishable by death (or Britney Spears)”.

I lived in Melbourne for a year, and maybe I’ll fly over again. Your cafe will be on my schedule then. Let me know if any of you know how I can get hold of a copy of the CLOUDBOY ep ….of course I have listened to it on this site, many times, but I would love to get my own copy. Help me please!

good idea to move the camera down to the front whoever did that… The picture seems much clearer too. As you can probably tell, I’m procrastinating and am staring at the picture to my right. I wish it was an instant video camera thingy… I digress. No more, I must move on.

Thanks to Nick to introduced me to this cafe. This looks like a wonderful place to be! When I visit NZ, I know where one of my stops will be! I like the fact that you give your profits to local artists…This is a very good thing. Keep up the good work and have fun with your cafe. Thank you for sharing your adventure with me!

Great website! Yet more reasons why I have to make it down to Dunedin one of these days! Being a coffee freak & band fan Dunedin sounds like an excellent place to be.

I was disappointed to discover Apple & Eve has had to close. I hope you will be able to find other premise and so continue in business. Apple & Eve was my favourite cafe. No, I didn’t call in often but I liked very much the decor, the internet connection, being able to sit on a comfortable couch, read pooh bear, etc. David
