Rugby Legends, Art, Iron and Angolan Lambada

Plus head out to a festival where winter isn’t welcome

Start the weekend with a Spanish lunch or vegan dinner on Friday and kickstart the weekend with a good meal.

If you’re in an arty mood, there’s an iron exhibition at the Waterfront by one of SA’s leading artistic blacksmiths and a garden filled with sculptures near Stellenbosch by a local art veteran.

Alternatively, you can learn to sexy dance like an Angolan and if winter has you in its icy grips, there’s a festival that has all the ingredients to get you out of it. There’s that, there’s more and if you get ahead of yourself, there are things for next weekend too.

#Pickoftheweek: I Am Iron Man
Go to a free showing of blacksmith/artist Conrad Hicks’ latest works, inspired by his search for the origin of beauty. You can also visit his forge and studio to see an ancient anvil after seeing his exhibition, hosted at the Southern Guild in the V&A Waterfront, called Implement.

2. A Mix of Mexico and Spain at Onomo
Book off early and head off to a lunch of  tacos and sangrias in the heart of the city. R85 gets you this combo and it’s smack in the middle of the city at Onomo Inn On The Square.

3. Calling All Vegans
Char-grilled broccoli, forest phantom cheese and baked potato gnocchi. That’s just some of the things you can expect on Grub and Vine’s special vegan/vegetarian menu. The normal menu is still available, so take your vegan friends to supper for the new monthly Veg & Vine.

4. Chase Away The Winter Blues
Winter is here, but there’s an event in Woodstock that has all the ingredients to take the chill away. The Palms Decor Lifestyle Centre is the place for bars, food and live entertainment by Matthew Mole at the first Night Feast

5. Meet A Rugby Legend
The first non-white Springbok coach will be doing a talk at a Goodwood bookstore touching on his life, coaching experience and how he got through both the good and the and the bad of coaching. Meet Peter de Villiers at Gavin Joachim’s bookstore.

6. Explore The Art Pathway
Somewhere off a beaten path near Stellenbosch, is a seven-hectare farm with a 4km path through a sculpture wonderland. Check it out for yourself when veteran SA artist Dylan Lewis lets you inside his sculpture garden.

7. Make Her Sweat With The Angolan Salsa
Bring your lady and discover a sexy dance with a difference. Get lesson in Kizomba, an Angolan version of the Spanish salsa, from a world champion couple at the Intense Kizomba Weekend.


Get Your Creative Writing On
Veteran writer Dr Jo Ann Richards share her knowledge and skills to open up your imagination and unlock your inner author at her creative writing workshop.

The Java Fest Is Here

Dance Like A Man
Revamped and fresh, the hit show that has been revered around the world is back where it started. The Kalk Bay Theatre may not be big enough for Big Boys Don’t Dance.
