So I’ve been wanting to check this joint out for yonks, ever since I spotted the rather intriguing name last year…But,as you may well know, being a parent often means some serious NASA–level communication and co-ordination with your “village” (if they’re available) to make date-night happen. (I ain’t even kidding). So about three weeks ago when our open-air cinema plans fell through, but we still had a secured babysitter for the night, we grabbed at the opportunity to finally pop in at the hot and fine, Jackal& Hide.
From the moment you enter from atop the stairs, you’re immediately struck by the Continue reading
So after eyeing this joint for more than two years, I finally made my way to bread and butter in November last year, and have been back multiple times ever since. And if you ever go there (or keep reading), you’d understand why… Continue reading
So back in July I celebrated yet another trip around the sun. More importantly to note, I got to spend it with a bunch of great people Im grateful to call friends, at an awesome little restaurant called Galbi’s. It was an evening of hands-on fun and great food!
But that evening of awesomeness almost didn’t happen. You see, truth be told, Continue reading
So in keeping with the “date-nights-during-the-day” vibe of our last date, hubby and I were fortunate enough to steal away again on a cold but sunny Saturday afternoon a good few weeks ago. As any parent would agree, these “just the two of you” times are so rare, that when you get it, you don’t want to waste it on half-assed service or “meh” food. The way, and the where you spend it has got to tick all the boxes and be worth your while. So when we chose NV-80, it certainly didn’t disappoint!
This is the latest offering from Continue reading
Who says dates nights have to be actual nights?
When babysitters at night are few, and all but gone AWOL, and night-time adult-time is not looking good on your horizon, don’t dis-count the option of romance in broad day light!
It was our anniversary a few months back and baby wasn’t even THREE months old yet. We were still in the midst of the crazy existence of becoming a family of four. But we knew we needed this break away. So when hubby booked us a table at the charming La Mouette, I did my best to polish my terribly sleep-deprived postpartum-self up! Continue reading
With the rare winter sun shining, and our brains all mushed by the work week – being such diligent workers that we are, we were in need of some injection of fun (and food), and decided to make a meal outta lunchtime, as it were, by heading out to The Mexican on Long for a quick bite.
Ive been wanting to head out to this establishment ever since I spotted it since my return from maternity leave, so I was beyond happy when the group all decided on it. Because whether, it was Continue reading
So about two weekends ago we went on an epic family playdate. I had read quite a bit about Weltevreden Estate, religiously stalked their facebook page and so had been wanting to go for some time now. So when my buddy suggested we do a reconn mission there for a possible birthday venue for her DD, it was on like donkey kong!!
As you drive into the estate, you’ll be sufficiently charmed by the pretty little dutch style building that greets you. It sets the mood, and clearly holds a promise of a great venue. Parking was pretty easy, and is more Continue reading
So, with valentines day but a day away,my minds obviously reeling what hubs ‘n I could possibly do for the day. You know, to keep the magic alive, fires burning and other such metaphors.
We don’t truly buy into the whole commercialism of the day, and yes “everyday SHOULD be valentines”, but I’m a sucker for holidays, so we Continue reading
For those of you who are living under the same rock that I was up until July last year, and still dont know of the lovely eatery called Tables at Nitinda: firstly slap yourselves, then make your way on down to this gem of a place tucked in the Durbanville Winelands area, nested within the Nitida Wine Estate.
Got kids? Perfect! With the generous lawn that gives way to a cute little jungle gym and swings, your kids will be kept entertained and hopefully Continue reading
