Goodness but I love this city, and so love watching it morph and grow with SO many new spots opening all the time, fantastic shows, performances and events happening, and so much more!
I wanted to start doing an every-now-and-then blog post featuring the new things that are popping up on my radar, and to hopefully share some fun things around the city with you guys!
So here we go - the first in a series of things going on around Johannesburg!
1. Grab a cocktail (and a DELICIOUS dinner) at the BEST bistro in Joburg
You've probably heard me talking about this restaurant before, as it is one of my absolute faves in Joburg (and I have the pleasure of shooting all their food and drinks every few months, what a win!), AND they just won the prestigious BEST BISTRO award as voted by Eat Out Mag.
2. Art & Design Saturday at Keyes with Nando's Young Designers 2018
I attended the launch of the Art & Design Saturdays a few months ago and was blown away by this awesome event! (Have a peek at my IG story of it here)
Their next event looks pretty fab too!
"The October 20th [and November 10th by the looks of it] edition of Art&Design Saturday at Keyes Art Mile is proud to partner with infamously creative brand Nando’s to bring audiences a dramatic exhibition by the 2018 Hot Young Designers and an Emporium featuring Nando’s designers based at 99 Juta Street."
3. The jacarandas are blooming!
Head to your fave street in Jozi, or the Westcliff hotel or even Delta Park to enjoy these gorgeous flowers.
4. Learn something!
Nicole is my very own amazing accountant, and hosts a heap of fun informative workshops and classes! Here is her next one.
"Come join us for a relaxed morning brunch, chatting about Tax and Business for Freelancers and Sole Proprietors.
Learn how to keep basic records that will simplify your tax.
Let’s chat about online programs and how to simplify the tax requirements for this admin-heavy tax type.
How to record your income, what about IRP5s, what can (and can’t) I deduct, and how does provisional tax work. "
5. The Centre for The Less Good Idea
I discovered this amazing centre for the first time last night, while attending an amazing performance of a dance piece!
They have a heap of incredible shows on - have a peek at their facebook page here for more info.
6. And lastly - a spot I've been dying to try for a while - Tanen
Have you guys visited this Linden wine bar yet? I don't know quite why I haven't popped in yet!
My lovely friend Lucy recently did, and it sounds just amazing - have a peek at the post on her blog here to learn more about it!
