I can't believe how this year has flow by…
I’ve already seen a TV Christmas ad, facebook posts about Christmas and count-downs, last year’s decorations and cards in big SALES counters – it’s come way to soon!
But before we get too ahead of ourselves, October is an awesome month for Cape Townians.
Firstly, there is Oktober fest at Paulaner Brauhaus – so head there for some beer tastings on a sunny Saturday afternoon (www.paulaner.co.za).
October is also the month for music! Maybe it’s the spring in the air, but I’m super keen to go chill out and watch great local bands jam all day.
Like this weekend: It’s the Season of Sauvignon and a number of wine farms in the Durbanville area are celebrating by having live entertainment, picnics and of course loads of wine for tastings.
The Forbidden fruit music festival guys (www.4biddenfruit.co.za) are hosting ‘Rockin’ in the vineyards’ all weekend long at D’Aria wine estate (www.daria.co.za). Tonight the likes of Karen Zoid, Dean Fuel, Ballyhoo are performing, followed by DJ’s late into the night. Saturday offers bands such as Ashtray Electric, Anton Goosen, Van Coke Kartel, The Pretty Blue Guns, while Sunday gets grooving with the likes of aKing, plus other blues and jazz bands.
I’ll be heading there tonight for some fun.
Bloemendal Wine estate (www.bloemendal.co.za) is also hosting a Farm Fest on Saturday and Sunday where bands such as Bed on Bricks, Boulevard Blues, Gerald Clark Trio.
Food stalls will range from, various potjies, like kerrie affal, lamb, bredies etc, to traditional braai, lamb spit, with rooster brood, stywe pap, farm breads and lots more. Celebrity chefs will be holding cooking demonstrations and comedians will be will be keeping us tickled.
Hooray for fun times!
See you there!
