6 August to 12 August

With another public holiday this week, you’ve got more time to get out and have fun!

In arts and entertainment news, the latest show from Pieter-Dirk Uys starts at the Fugard Theatre on Tuesday 7th, Samuel Beckett’s Endgame comes to the Baxter Theatre from Wednesday 8th, and Bianca Del Rio (winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race) is performing at the Artscape Theatre on Friday 10th. Also on this weekend are the Klein Karoo Klassique in Oudtshoorn and Solo Studios in the Riebeek Valley, both from Thursday 9th to Sunday 12th, with the Minnesota Orchestra performing at City Hall on Friday 10th.

If you’re hungry for something different, the first ever On Tap At The Tip Festival is in Bredasdorp on Saturday 11th. But if you’d prefer something closer to the city, we’ve got you covered with a great guide to Green Point (and nearby De Waterkant), voted as one of the coolest suburbs in South Africa.

For breakfast, we recommend Jason Bakery or Loading Bay, while Cushty is ideal for brunch if you want a later start. You can also feel welcome at Stranger’s Club for lunch or get down to Upper Bloem for dinner to round off your perfect day. Bon appetit!
