Temperatures may be dropping as fast the autumn leaves, but there’s still loads going on to keep your summer spirits up. For starters, you can put rugby, craft markets and food and wine on your list of things to do this May…
Super Rugby (9, 23, 30 May)
Venue: Newlands Rugby Stadium, Newlands
Rugby fans, warn the missus! This month the Stormers take over the Mother City – or at least, they might as well seeing that they have three matches lined up at Newlands Stadium. Fixtures kick off on 9 May at 17:05 against the Australian Brumbies, followed by a clash with the Rebels on the 23rd at 19:10, and the Toyota Cheetahs on the 30th at 17:05. We know post-match traffic can get kind of crazy. Why not save yourself the trouble and book a taxi to and from the stadium. You won’t have to worry about drinking and driving either!
Not going through? Then remember to keep those Saturday evenings free and get ready to back your boytjies from your favourite bar stool. Afterwards, you know the drill – dial 0861RIKKIS.
Kamers Pop-up Market (7 – 10 May)
Venue: Cape Town City Hall, City Centre
Browse through local art and crafts, try on some clothing and nibble on some food at Kamers’ Autumn Pop-Up this month. For four days City Hall will be taken over by more than 250 traders, exhibiting handmade crafts to the tune of kitchenware, lounge suites, bathroom goodies and more.
Tickets cost R50 if you book online or R70 at the door, and under-18s get in for mahala! Why not grab a Rikkis taxi and give your tots the full attention they deserve on the drive home. They’ll be itching to talk about the excitement of the day past.
Good Food and Wine Show (21 – 24 May)
Venue: CTICC, City Centre
Attention foodies! Whether you’re the cooking or eating kind (or both), the Good Food and Wine Show is your ticket to culinary heaven. Apart from getting your eat on, there will also be a chance to rub shoulders with celebrity cooks Matt Preston (Masterchef Australia) and the Cake Boss himself, Buddy Valastro.
Go ahead and get you game, shop and grub on this May…
