Jamaican me Crazy!

Friday night was very cool – we had a “siblings night out”. We went to Jamaican Me Crazy in Woodstock. We had a fantastic time – good food and great company. A divine evening spent with my sister, brother, mrb and mrs.t 🙂 We sat upstairs RIGHT in front of the big screen sipping cocktails and catching up 🙂

Our timing was perfect – we were just wiping the last of the ribs bbq sauce from our faces when the The Ghana / Uruguay Game started. We expected it to be a good game, but by the time they called the extra 30 mins of over time – the game was getting just a little TOO tense. Sitting on the edge of our seats, screaming and shouting… the WHOLE restaurant was routing for Ghana and, man, by the time the penalty shoots outs came on, I could feel their pain… shame man: So Bloody Close!

But despite the sad ending – the whole night was fantastic! Thanks my beautiful sister for organising it!!


Its not at all what is sounds like – not really 🙂

j-a.g, kat & i nipped through to Green Point for what was to be a MASS STREAK to show the world that, YES: Capetonians DO have the GEES (spirit) and we’re excited about the World Cup and we’re perfectly happy to get naked prove it!

Although it turned out to be a bit cold and rainy (you know how much we hate the rain!) and (most definitely) because of the copious amounts of ‘Dutch courage’ that was consumed, we saw plenty enough bums and boobs and other bits bouncing down the road screaming and shouting, blowing and even wearing Vuvuzelas (you know where!)

And that was just the beginning of our night out in town 🙂 For the photo-graphical evidence – click HERE

That was followed by a more respectable exhibition launch in De Waterkant (you’ll see me admiring some artwork in the link above).  Tiny room, lots of people and plenty of soccer related photos (see: MORE GEES in Cape Town) but it was hot, there was no food and we were keen to keep moving.

And just was well, kat led us to the launch of the photography exhibition at Misael Space:  Play, Jump, Eat. The photographs (it goes without saying) are absolutely awesome. My favourites were the ones of various people famous (Freshly Ground, Desmond Tutu) and less famous (Kalk Bay Fishermen) jumping on a double bed, which has been making its way around CT. The best part: The bed was there at the exhibition and we got to jump on it too – like little children 🙂  (The exhibition is still on, so make sure you pop when you’re there next!)

After all that jumping we were very hungry and decided to nip over, to the VERY OTHER side of town BY FOOT (because you know how much we like to walk!) to the Great Eastern Bazaar in Darling street. I wont go into too much detail here, because seeing is believing: SEE IT HERE What did I tell you?? Yummeh!

And then we chose the perfect way to round up a night of Bed, Art, Nakedness and Food by choosing whiskey and beer at the Woodstock Lounge:  Drinks, Cosy Couches, Fireplace, Good Friends, and a very soppy-in-love couple just across the way who entertained us for much of the time there.

Why I love Denise

She made the most *awesome* cottage pie with gravy, roasted butternut on the side and a tomato + avo salad for lunch.


Pizza @ The Toad

Still one of my absolute favourites – Camembert, smoked chicken & cranberry on a pizza @ The Toad in the Village (Noordhoek)

We spent a wonderful evening with bestest friends R&N.m + the ou toppies :o)
