Legend-ary shots in the Mother City

R&B singer John Legend was a hit in Cape Town with three sold-out shows and it looks like the Mother City left its mark on him as well. The legendary crooner and his wife – model Chrissy Teigen – were posting up on storm on Instagram as they captured their travels in the city this week, from yacht trips and show-time selfies, to more intimate moments on tour. John, you legend, thanks for coming, and hopefully we see you again soon!

30 Seconds in the Mother City

Cape Town played host to yet another sold-out show this past weekend with 30 Seconds to Mars packing the Grand West Casino on Sunday night. Frontman Jared Leto may not have been quite as active as fellow singer John Legend, but he still managed to snap a couple of pics – and post a video - to Instagram, chronicling his time in the Mother City. To be fair, the group didn’t spent quite as long in town as the R&B crooner, but it’s still pretty clear that the city worked its magic on Leto.

A Craft Beer Guide to Cape Town

The rise of craft beers in Cape Town has been rapid. Capetonians will no longer assault their gullets with mass-produces lagers. They want variety and they want quality. I spoke to Martin Tucker, owner of The Beer Merchant, and one of the organisers of the Cape Town Festival of Beer, to get a better understanding of craft beer around the city. Basically I wanted a guide on what the Mother City has on tap. He broke the market down into three different categories: breweries, tap rooms and places.

The Springbok Experience in Cape Town leaves a mark

I didn’t really know what to expect from the Springbok Experience at the V & A Waterfront. I am a rugby fan, but I am not rabid. So how much interest could a museum dedicated to South African rugby have for me? Turns out a lot… The great thing about the experience is that it goes beyond just the rugby. The brains trust behind it wanted it to appeal to everybody and they have achieved that.
