There’s also checkpoints and challenges on a fun scavenger hunt, first dibs on the latest fashion and expert make-up tips. Soccer fans have a Cape Town PSL double header coming up and next week we’ll tell you where you can drink all the tequila your body can handle.
15 Reasons to Get Your Car Serviced This Weekend
Here’s a deal to get revved up about. VW drivers who book to have their car serviced on a Saturday at Barons Cape Town VW will get a courtesy VW up! to drive to any one of the 15 experiences curated by CapeTownMagazine.com. The experiences are all close to the Barons Cape Town VW branch, and are either free or very affordable. For instance, R15 gets you an authentic Senegalese coffee experience, including the famous, spice-infused Arabic flavoured Touba Coffee at Khadim’s Coffee.
Go art gallery hopping for an entire weekend and get to view a rare, privately-owned William Kentridge piece, attend La Bri Estates’ first-ever exhibition and meet a pig that paints (true story) at Art Franschhoek.

WHAT TO PLAN FOR NEXT WEEKEND
One Tequila, Two Tequila, Three Tequila, Floor
The Hamiltons Rugby Club is turning into little Mexico for a weekend of nachos, tacos and all you can drink tequila. So bring a designated driver to discover the local agave beverage brands (they can’t be called tequila) at the International Tequila Festival.
Sin In The City
All Saints’ Day is being turned on its head with a burlesque show that brings envy, gluttony, greed, lust, pride, sloth, and wrath onto one stage. It’s all sinfully entertaining with the Deadly 7 at the Galloway Theatre.
Celebrating Stellenbosch’s Strawberry Heritage
Jamestown is a quaint village in Stellenbosch that’s famous for one little thing - growing strawberries. Celebrate this proud heritage with them while you sample strawberry based delights at the annual Jamestown Strawberry Festival.
See artworks of 25 up-and-coming artists, as chosen by visual activist Zanele Muholi, in the Ikhono Lasenatali exhibition, now showing at the A4 Arts Gallery.
