Cape Town Stuff!

The wild and whacky funnyman from Mitchell’s Plain, Kurt Schoonraad, headlines the next Hanover Street Comedy Sundowners at GrandWest on Sunday, 4 September 2016. For most Cape Town comedy fans, Schoonraad is an instantly recognisable face, having done the rounds at comedy venues and festivals for over a decade.

Some of his stage accolades include the Smirnoff Comedy Festival and the Cape Town International Comedy Festival. He is also remembered as the accidental tourist on the hit SABC TV series Going Nowhere Slowly and for his role as the protagonist on the game show Crazy Games. Although hilariously funny, he performs a clean act focusing on the widespread diversity of South Africa’s rainbow nation’s varied cultures.

September’s Hanover Street Comedy Sundowners will also feature Melt Sieberhagen as host and supporting acts Milo Hot Chocolate, Justin Ray and open mic, Obed Plaatjes.

The doors will open at 17h00 and the festivities will kick off at 18h00. The cost to enter is R55 per person, strictly for over 18s. Contact 082 588 6662 to book.

The Park Inn Cape Town Live-Inn Restaurant is a favourite amongst locals and tourists alike. Contributing greatly to this is Executive Chef, Morné Botha.

Morné is excited to bring his take on easy eating to the Live-Inn Restaurant menu, drawing inspiration from his love of South Africa cuisine, patron requests and dishes that incorporate local ingredients, the latter of which not only help reduce carbon footprint but support local suppliers.

Patrons can look forward to fresh ingredients, charcoal grilled meats and fish, locally inspired specialties, delicious classic dishes, and for the sweet tooth, playful desserts such as cookies & milk (for grown ups). Continue reading

The City of Cape Town appeals to all beach and ocean users to be aware of the expected increase in in-shore shark activity over the spring and summer months.

The City’s Utility Services Directorate is spending just over R65 million on street lighting in this financial year. 

The City of Cape Town’s Utility Services Directorate plans to invest R65,8 million in street lighting projects by the end of June 2017.

The funds have been allocated for expansion of the street lighting network, but also replacement of old sodium high-intensity discharge (HID) lights with more energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly light-emitting diode (LED) lights.

Internationally celebrated Red Bull athlete and drift racer Mike Whiddett, popularly known as “Mad Mike”, will have GrandWest Casino lit as his South African tour hits the shores of the Mother City on Saturday 17 September 2016. The event promises to be nothing short of insane as Mad Mike tears the track up in his drift weapon of choice – the legendary Quad Rotary RX.

Running for its fifth year, the event dubbed “Wheels of Fury” will test Africa’s leading drifters as they clutch kick and counter steer their way through the maniacal drift gauntlet, “Drift X”, which will test the fine line between physics, creativity and epic wickedness as athletes’ powerslide below a GoodHope construction truck, amongst other mind-blowing obstacles.

On the drifting scene in Cape Town, Noer Asmodien of D1S Lifestyle Productions says, “Judging by spectator turn-out at drift events and the ever popular Killarney regularly drawing crowds of motor fans, the local motor and drift culture continues to grow at an exponential rate. We are proud to be bringing Wheels of Fury to petrolheads in a manner that’s not only exhilarating and fun, but safe because its focus is not only about beating your opponent with speed, but rather with stylish skill and driving technique,” says Asmodien. “Mad Mike is the kind of talent we want to expose Cape Town to.” Continue reading
