Fazielah’s Top 3 Weekend Picks for August 17 to 19, 2012
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.
Brrrr, we‘ve had a chilly week in Cape Town, haven’t we? No need to fret, though, because the Mother City is getting her heat on this weekend.
By now you’ll know that I am a musical fanatic (yes, I have every soundtrack AND the programmes purchased on opening nights to prove it!), so there is no way I am missing the spectacular Cabaret at the Theatre on the Bay in Camps Bay.
This sizzling winter production focuses on the passionate relationship between a jaded cabaret performer and a young writer, and their alluring escapades in Berlin’s seedy Kit Kat Klub in 1931. Keep an ear out for well-known favourites Cabaret and Willkommen.

Whether you’re there to ogle the rugby players on the flat-screen TVs, or meet with friends to celebrate the onset of the weekend, Cubaña Claremont is the place to be this Friday.
Fabulous heaters to keep you warm, deliciously hot jalapeno poppers, and a to-die-for chocolate-chip cookie dessert cocktail are just a few of the reasons a visit to Cubaña is a must this weekend!
