Pair Pizza & Wine, Learn How To Draw and Get Drizzled
Plus find a bestseller or old favourite for just R2
Jislaaik people it’s cold … but that doesn’t mean you need to stay indoors, not when all these awesome things are waiting for you to do in Cape Town’s bad weather.
The weekend has a toasty feeling to it with a cozy winter food and music festival, pizza and wine pairings and winter-themed craft beers to guzzle. There’s also a book sale in Durbanville where you can find treasure for R2 and a workshop where 50 bucks could turn you from a doodler to Picasso.
There’s more (there always is) and there’s a heads up for next week too (as usual).
