Where Would You Rather Be Wednesdays in Cape Town
Call me crazy, but if you had to ask me where I’d rather be on a Wednesday in Cape Town, I couldn’t tell you … simply because I’d want to be all over the Mother City at once!
Wednesday, that magical, wonderful, crazy midweek beauty also known as Hump Day for the working folk, is traditionally seen as a mini-weekend. A day when you get to enjoy the Wacky Wednesdays two- for-one burgers at Steers, ladies get in for free at chic nightclubs all over town, and cocktail prices are slashed to a sweet, affordable price at most bars.
It’s with these hedonistic pleasures in mind that I will be asking you, Mother City lovers, each week where you would rather be on Wednesdays in Cape Town. Keep an eye out for my burning questions on the I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page and then leave a comment on the post or send your response to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To help get you inspired, here are my top 5 places I’d rather be on Wednesdays in Cape Town (yes, I’ve managed to narrow them down):
People-watching in Bree Street
Bree Street has been experiencing a season of rejuvenation lately and with the increase in coffee shops, art galleries, fashion boutiques and the like on its paved pathways, this has become my new favourite spot to idly watch people and the world go by.
Lunch at Kalky’s
The scenic drive, breathtaking view, and the oh-so-tasty fish and chips parcel that awaits at this little piece of fishing village heaven in Kalk Bay makes me want to leave the office right now!
Enjoying a nooner at the V&A Waterfront
Get your mind out of the gutter … I meant an afternoon movie treat at this seaside mecca’s Nu Metro moviehouse!
This cinematic powerhouse has all of the Oscar-nominated movies, including Lincoln, Les Misérables and Django Unchained, on its playbill. And best of all, if you’re a Nu Metro Fanatics member, you get to enjoy half-price with their Woza Wednesdays special.
Suntanning on Camps Bay beach
Getting our fair share of Vitamin D while admiring the hot beauties and amazing scenery on the white, sandy shores of Camps Bay is what we Capetonians are best at … get your swimsuits, sunscreen and umbrellas, and join me for a dip and tan.
Dinner at Rafiki’s:
Give me a burger and chips, and you will have my heart … or better yet, treat me to the Burger Special night at Rafiki’s!
For just R84.50, we can sink our teeth into this vibey Tamboerskloof restaurant’s excellent beef patties. Call +27 (0)21 426 4731 for more information.
