1 October to 7 October

From dogs and daisies to gin and juice, we’ve got it all this week!

To celebrate World Vegetarian Day on Monday 1st, here are five spots with good-for-the-gut grub in Cape Town as well as details on The Electric, a nut milk and juice bar in District Six. And to celebrate World Animal Day on Thursday 4th, here’s a list of dog-friendly restaurants in the Western Cape and over two dozen pet-friendly restaurants in Cape Town.

Other foodie highlights this week include For the Love of Craft in Stellenbosch on Friday 5th, the Fitch and Leedes Gin and Tonic Festival at the V&A Waterfront on Saturday 6th, and the Say Cheese Artisanal Cheese Fair on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th. And if you’re attending the Hermanus Wine & Food Fair, we’ve got a guide to wining and dining with the whales.

Speaking of travel, if you’re attending Rocking the Daisies this weekend, here’s the locals’ guide to exploring the Boland and beyond, a look at how the Cederberg has risen from the ashes, and details of the Kagga Kamma getaway in a cave. Closer to the city, you can enjoy food, music, art, and more at the ninth Rocktober Lifestyle Festival on Sunday 7th (not to be confused with Oktoberfest 2018 on Saturday 6th). The year might be winding down but the party is just getting started!
