Your Cape Town weekend: top 3 events in the Mother City
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.
Party, party, party … that's the theme for your weekend in sunny Cape Town, Mother City lovers!
Go forth and spend your hard-earned salary on fabulous outfits, then shimmy on over to the following events from Friday 1 to Sunday 3 February, 2013 – and discover why the fun never stops in Cape Town:
Met fever has taken the Fairest Cape by storm over the past few weeks and there is no doubt that fashionistas and equestrian aficionados will be dressed in their Made to Fly best for the social event of the year, taking place at the Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday.
Keep the celebrations going after sunset by putting in a fashionable appearance at the Shimmy Beach Club, the latest dining and lifestyle destination, for the ultimate J&B Met after-party.
