Le Roi – a new addition to the Camps Bay strip

Next time you’re in Camps Bay for some drinks and Caprice is getting a bit too hectic (as it does – especially while all the JoBurg’ers are in town), why not head a bit further down and check out the new Le Roi Beach Bar.

I was there recently for a friend’s birthday drinks and […]

Seeing the city through tourist eyes

So I’ve had my friend Austin here for a few days.  He’s a New Orleans born guy who currently lives in San Diego.  We became friends on a train station somewhere in Italy while I was touring there in 2011.

It’s his first visit to Cape Town (and South Africa for that matter) and I’ve […]

Lazy afternoon wine, cheese & charcuterie bliss at Constantia Glen

This past Monday was not only an absolutely beautiful day here in the Mother City, it was also the day bestie Leigh & I had one of the most relaxing, amazing afternoons both of us have had in quite some time.

That’s because we spent our afternoon chilling on the stoep at Constantia Glen, overlooking […]

Glenfiddich spoils us with a yacht trip & some Jazz Fest celebrations

This past weekend I hopped on a yacht… just like you do on an average day here in the Mother City hey… 😉

This total treat was thanks to Glenfiddich, the guys who have been distilling premium single malt whisky for just over 125 years now.

It all started back in 1887 with a man named […]

Friends of De Waal Park – secret superheroes of the CBD

This past Sun I was at De Waal Park for a FREE concert by SA band, Hot Water.  It was the last concert in their 2012/2013 summer series of bi-weekly concerts which kicked off back in Nov last year.

I could kick myself for only managing to make it over there on the last bloody one, […]

Galileo Open Air Cinema fun

Last Wed eve I finally got around to checking out the Galileo Open Air Cinema at Kirstenbosch Gardens.  I don’t know about you guys, but I just love the idea of watching movies out in the open with the starry night sky above you.  In my book it’s romantic, special, magical and all that good […]

Kirstenbosch summer concerts, still a Sunday eve staple

Last Sun I headed through to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden for a friend’s birthday party…

A friend who I clearly love A HELLUVA LOT cause I went even though The Parlotones was playing.  I hate The Parlotones, most of my other friends hate them too, and therefore I’ve had to endure a world of hurt for committing […]

Congrats Cape Town! You beauty…

If you haven’t already heard, Cape Town has just won the title of Africa’s Leading Beach Destination in the 2012 World Travel Awards.  Woohoo!

Now I know some of you might not think that this award is all that impressive seeing as it’s only for Africa and not the whole world.  BUT please don’t forget […]

If the weather outside is awesome, maybe consider an alternative option to just hitting the beach…

First off, happy Heritage Day & National Braai day to everyone!  Hope you guys enjoy the day off and have something amazing planned. To me the perfect day would involve killing a boerie roll or three. 😉

Right, now onto what I wanted to blab about today…  About 2 weeks ago we had this freak […]
