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.
