Fazielah’s top three weekday picks in Cape Town
Fazielah Williams has lived in and loved her Mother City since birth. Having lived all over the Peninsula during her childhood, she now calls the picturesque City Bowl home and likes nothing more than watching the sun set over Table Bay from the window of her apartment.
A lover of the arts and proud Cape Town fanatic, Fazielah began her writing career by spending many hours as a child conjuring fantastical stories that featured independent heroines from faraway lands who saved the Prince instead. This Capetonian princess has enjoyed stints as a magical arts PRO and TV publicist before finding her calling as a travel writer.
When not waxing lyrical about the Fairest Cape’s most loved attractions and activities and embarking on unexpected adventures, Fazielah can usually be found taking in a show at one of the City’s fabulous theatres.
Things just keep heating up in Cape Town, regardless of the weather, so why not join me at the following events and attractions in the Mother City, from July 30 to August 2, 2012?
I’m a sucker for comedy, great food and a fabulous view, which is why I’m über-excited for the launch of the Bay Harbour Comedy Supper Club in Hout Bay this Wednesday.
Amusing heavyweights Marc Lottering, Rob van Vuuren and Mum-z are the entertainment for this inaugural event and are sure to have us in stitches while the usual food traders supply us with tasty offerings.

This vibrant little theatre in the District Six is home to a coffee bar that makes the most delicious cup of Joe and is perfect for an early morning pick-me-up.
Pair it with a sweet Koeksister and book your tickets for Petersen and Kramer’s Kat and the Kings, which has been extended to September 2, 2012.

Starlings Cafe in Claremont is a quaint little restaurant with a homely atmosphere that is hard to resist.
In addition to a lovely, warming fireplace and their not-to-be-missed breakfast offerings (think Eggs Florentine and their speciality, Morning Scramble – tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, eggs and wholewheat bread), Starlings hosts a weekly organic food market.
Stock up on your veggies, honey and chicken at the Wednesday market from 16h00 to 18h00.
