The annual (well, actually, multi-annual) and legendary Dunedin student drinking event known as "The Cookathon" was officially cancelled this Orientation Week, but that didn't stop hundreds of Otago University students lining for the replacement-and-basically-the-same event.
The popular day of drinking was held at the newly-repainted Captain Cook Hotel, one of Dunedin's most famous student watering holes. Costumes are a big part of the fun, rivalling the Rugby 7's for variety and creativity...
