Your Cape Town Weekend: things to do from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 May, 2013
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.
The countdown to a fun-filled and thrilling weekend in Cape Town has begun, Mother City lovers, and I’m sure that like me, you can’t wait to get things started!
Here are three great must-try things to do in Cape Town this weekend, from Friday 17 to Sunday 19 May, 2013:
Brunch at Queen of Tarts
This sweet little brunch nirvana in trendy Observatory is the perfect spot for catching up with your gal pals and indulging in freshly made flapjacks, dripping in maple syrup and almond flakes and more … yummy!
Reserve your table at +27 (0)21 448 2420.
Nooners at the Labia Theatre
Weekends are made for movies, and nothing cheers me up like catching the latest blockbuster or arts release at the historic Labia Theatre in Gardens.
One of the few cinemas in town that actually serve popcorn in a brown paper bag and Coca-Cola in a glass bottle, the Labia is one of my favourites in the Mother City.

A night out at 169 on Long
Beautiful people, sexy beats and to-die-for cocktails are on the menu for a Saturday night out at 169 on Long, in the bustling Long Street.
For more information, please call +27 (0)21 424 2331.
