7 Weekend Picks: Pet Friendly Markets, Angels on Iron Steeds and Raunchy Theatre in Muizenberg

What the hell is a Nerf war? Find out here.

 

Cape Town’s first Nerf War is happening this weekend. What’s that you ask? Well read on and find out. Thousands of bikers are donating toys at Killarney and you can get involved and join them for an after-party. There’s also 70 wines and 30 seafood dishes to pair in Pringle Bay and a raunchy play based on an award-winning film in Muizenberg. A journalist shares the ugly side of her journey from abuse to empowerment and next week the biggest beer festival will be in town.

#Pickoftheweek: The Angels That Ride On Iron Steeds
Sunday, 24 November
Every year, thousands of bikers ride to Killarney with toys strapped to their bikes, all to bring joy to orphaned children. You can join them, whether you have a motorbike or not, by being at the finish line in Killarney to hand over toys to them. You can also enjoy music, food, beer and comedy at the the post-ride event of the Annual Toy Run.

2. You’ve Got Some Nerf
Sunday, 24 November
This is the best thing since laser tag: bring your kids for a fun, new battlefield game, where the guns shoot foam darts and the battles are themed around games like the popular Fortnite. Adults are welcome to join in the action at the first-ever annual Cape Town Nerf War.


3. Wine And Seafood In The Perfect Setting
Saturday, 23 November
Glen Craig in Pringle Bay has picturesque views of the ocean and fynbos – it’s just the best setting for eating seafood paired with a glass of vino. You can enjoy wines from 18 wineries as well as dishes ranging from snoek to white wine mussels at the Proe Seafood and Wine Festival.


4. But We Die Hard
Saturday, 23 November
Discover the story of a journalist who survived extreme abuse to become an inspiration to women. You can also attend a human behaviour workshop, and get personal coaching from a behavioural expert to learn how to overcome challenging circumstances and release emotional baggage. All proceeds go towards a women’s empowerment NGO at the Beaten But Not Broken: Purple High Tea and Charity Auction.


5. Create Your Own Picture Books
Saturday, 23 November
If you’ve ever wanted to illustrate a story, give beautiful handmade gifts or just learn how to draw, this workshop hosted by Karen Vermeulen from Bright Studios is what you need. Learn simple skills like drawing floral wreaths and tag designs to more advanced artistry like using scale to create humour at the Illustration Workshop in Woodstock.


6. From Hit Movie Into Semi-Pro Stage Production
Wednesday to Saturday, 20-23 November
The Masque Theatre is a project that allows community members to get involved in the stage production industry doing things like stage management, fundraising, costume design, wardrobe management, and more. This weekend it’s hosting a stage adaptation of the film that made Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman famous. It’s a bit steamy so the kids need to stay at home, but you should definitely come out for The Graduate at the Masque Theatre.


7. Bring Your Dog To This Food Market
Sunday, 24 November
Your pet is welcome at this food market that boasts a UCT jazz band, arts and crafts and a stall that sells fall-off-the-bone brisket. There will also be leather products, pottery and clothing to go with the braai, Indian, halaal, vegan and vegetarian foods at the Kirstenbosch Craft & Food Market.


WHAT TO PLAN FOR NEXT WEEKEND
The Party That’s Always At Its Peak
How about this for a party: You start off on a train rigged with a sound system, two bars and DJ spinning tunes. This takes you to a well-known food and live entertainment venue where the party continues until the wee hours of the morning. Then you head back to the same train to go home, where the party carries on. This isn’t a dream, it’s the Make-Believe Train Party.


Big Girls, You Are Beautiful
Forget about that bikini body, Differently Beautiful is throwing a pool party where you can show up as your natural self. Break out your cozzie and prepare for some dancing, swimming and the launch of a new burger at the PHATT Pool Party.


200 Bottles Of Beer On The Wall
If you want to be known as the biggest beer festival in the land, you start off by getting 60 different breweries to bring in 200 top quality beers and ciders. Then you bring in well-known food trucks and add fun aspects like beer Olympics and bachelor dance offs. Once you have that sorted and an awesome venue with the Cape Town Stadium as your backdrop, then you can claim your title. This is exactly what’s happening at the Cape Town Festival Of Beer.

And…
Mutant cars, random street performances, markets and an all-women music stage. We forgive you if you think we’re talking about Afrikaburn, but we’re actually talking about Streetopia.
