What: Seven Days of Shiraz & Venison

Where: Nederburg Wine Farm

When: June 11 - 17 @ 11h00

I don't have to say that much about this. The menu: smoked ostrich carpaccio served with ripe figs and goat cheese; slow-braised kudu shank, creamy cauliflower purée, baby vegetables and café au lait sauce; and espresso brûlée with pistachio biscotti for a sweet ending.


What: WavePark Events

Where: WavePark, Umhlanga

When & Cost: Visit WavePark for activities and prices

WavePark has an array of exciting music and activities. It is all rather mysterious and there's only one way to find out what really goes down there. Don't let the waves pass you by.

What: Gentleman's Tea

Where: The Oyster Box

When: June 17 @ 14h30

This could be a lovely prelude to Father’s Day next weekend. Treat your dad or your man to some of that gentleman’s tea. A spot of those fiery Chivas waters along with some pork pies, beef sliders and whisky truffles will go a long way towards making that special man a happy guy.
