Your #lovecapetown weekend: Things to do from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 May, 2014
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.
Woohoo, #lovecapetown, the weekend is here!
Yes, I’m insanely excited because it means three days of unashamedly loving the Mother City by exploring her hidden nooks and crannies, attending her fantastic events and savouring the tastes of her tasty eateries – and you can join me!
Don’t miss out on these cool things to do in Cape Town from Friday 23 to Sunday 25 May, 2014:
Got lunch plans this Sunday? How about breaking bread with the legend himself, the Honourable Archbishop Desmond Tutu and a few of his famous friends on Table Mountain for the annual Table of Peace and Unity?
It’s the Mother City’s largest lunch party with more than 750 diners tucking into the most delectable gourmet treats and fabulous wines, all in the name of charity – ones that care for the children of South Africa.
Lunch is served with a side dish of thrilling entertainment including a must-see fashion show.

Ever felt like you’re always stuck being second best? That’s what the talented Candice van Litsenborgh portrays in the ridiculously funny but amazingly insightful show, Understudy Blues, at the Galloway Theatre in Green Point.
Always the understudy, never the lead, van Litsenborgh takes you on an emotional rollercoaster of heart-breaking ballads, energetic jazz tunes and more that makes you want to cheer for the underdog ensemble member – as well you should!

So you thought all Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden was good for is hosting awesome summer sunset concerts? Think again, friends, because it recently unveiled the seriously cool Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway, also known by its way cooler name, the Boomslang.
Grab your mates, or your hot date, and get down to the Garden for this curved steel and timber bridge that winds and dips its way through and over the trees of the Arboretum.
The 360 degree views of surrounding mountains, Garden and Cape Flats at the end of the walkway will leave you and your beloved breathless.
