#Pickoftheweek: Get streetwise and learn more about your city
Open Streets is not just about road closures. It’s about saving the environment, community spirit and taking back the streets. That you also have a car-less road to dance, skate, cycle or just roam is a bonus, a very big one. So head on down to Bree Street for Open Streets City Centre.
2. Sundowners In The Winelands
End the working week and kick off the weekend with a choice of the best wines on offer at the Avondale wine farm. Not in the mood for wine? Then get gin and tonic or other spirit drinks. There something for everyone this Friday at the Avondale Garden Bar.
3. Little Darling (I Need You)
They say the journey somewhere is half the fun. So driving 75km to the quaint little town of Darling will be thrilling. Once you’re there, you’ll find hearty cuisine, beautiful homeware, fine wines, and more at the Groote Post Country Market.
