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.
Yes, sadly, it’s Monday… on the bright side, though, it’s Women’s Day on Thursday so it’s a short working week in the Mother City!
Join me at the following events and activities from August 6 to 9, and discover why Cape Town warms up in winter:
The grande dame of Theatre, Artscape Theatre, on the foreshore opens her dramatic doors to welcome a variety of amazing, educational and moving productions and exhibitions to celebrate Cape Town’s gorgeous women this week.
From I Stand Corrected, the compelling correctional rape and murder drama, to the heart-warming photographic exhibition Nevergiveups and the jazz concert, The Eve: A Celebration of the Curve of Humanity, the Women’s Arts Festival is a must-do event!

This trendy bar in the city centre has certainly been creating a stir with its fabulous R40 Monday meal specials but if you’re an Eric Zoolander in training, you'll also love the Style Shoot Night on Wednesday.
Strike a pose for your professional shot, courtesy of Alexander Bar & Cafe, and indulge in their delicious cocktails while looking fabulous.

As tempting as it will be to stay under the covers and sleep in on Thursday, I’m going to wear my best pair of running shoes and participate in the popular annual Totalsports Ladies Race in Stellenbosch.
