A restaurant owner in Auckland says it was like partying after the end of World War II when restrictions were lifted on Friday after being locked down for months, NZ Herald reports. “Friday was like a boomer, I can only imagine it being like a party like the end of World War II type thing on the streets,” said Luke Dallow the owner of dumplings and beer restaurant Midnight Gardener. Leo Molloy, owner of Headquarters at Auckland’s Viaduct Basin, said, “Ninety-nine per cent of people were very well behaved.” He also thanked the police for taking an educational approach on the night by co-operating well with the restaurant and the public.
