This weekend is Wine On The River in Robertson. This is a great wine festival because it’s not as crazy as the Wacky Wine Weekend and everything happens in one place so you don’t have to move around from estate to estate. I went yesterday to check it out and here are some top reasons to get out there this weekend.
The Galileo Outdoor Cinema has become a popular activity. This year they have expanded the offering to cover more nights of the week and more areas. There will be a Galileo Cinema showing Tuesday to Friday every week (with a few exceptions) and they have added a rotation of city venues to take the Friday night slot.
This is the schedule for the 2015/2016 season of concerts at Kirstenbosch Gardens. Tickets can be booked online at Webtickets. Book your favourites now because the good ones sell out long in advance.
2015 has given us the first rosé wine competition in South Africa, Rosé Rocks. Pink wine is no longer the sweet or semi-sweet wine with which it as for a long time been associated. It is now a sophisticated style of dry wine made from various varieties of grapes. These are the winning wines.
The 20 nominees for the 2015 Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards have been announced. These restaurants will be evaluated by the judges and the top 10 restaurants in the country will be announced at the Restaurant Awards ceremony on 15 November at Mistico Equestrian Centre, near Paarl.
At the beginning of August 22seven asked me to join do a money saving exercise and report back on the results. They gave me a selection of money saving ideas to try. I had to select 7 of them and do them for roughly a month.
Charango Bar and Peruvian Grill is the new hot spot on the hottest street in town, Bree. You don’t need to pay a fortune-teller to figure out that this is going to be the place to be in summer. With wide open frontage and plenty of outside seating on the broad pavement, this bar-restaurant will easily entice any and all who wander nearby.
Hartenberg is looking for the best homemade burger and when they find it, they will handsomely reward the creator and put their name up in lights. Find out what you need to do to enter this competition and potentially win one of the great prizes.
I was invited to experience the new Peddlars. But I didn’t realise it would involve multiple visits, because Peddlars now has 4 distinct food offerings!
MySchool invited me to assist with the planting of a food garden at Chapel Street Primary School in District 6. The project is a collaboration between the school, Woolworths Financial Services (WFS), Partners for Possibility and Urban Harvest.
