If you’ve ever made your way to Mzoli’s in Gug’s, or even just to the Mzoli’s Butchery to pick up your whopping large lamb chops, you’ll be aware that this has the potential to be one hell of a vibe. Instead of washing down a tasting with a boring biscuit, we’ll probably be snacking on a piece of wors.
We can all guess what the official fruit of New York State is, can’t we? That’s right – the apple. Official drink of the New Yawkers? Milk. But now the race is on to name the official state vegetable. And the lawmakers are making a meal of it.
We all watched that television series Full House when we were younger. We all loved it and it was one of the funniest and happiest times of our young television lives. The twins were, well, adorable and made us laugh out loud quite regularly, but they might need to explain this one.
Two vegans who fed their 11 month old daughter only on her mother’s breast milk went on trial in northern France on Tuesday. They have been charged with neglect after their baby died as a result of suffering from vitamin deficiencies and could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted.
The Tanzanian “miracle” pastor, Reverend Ambilikile “Babu” Mwasapile has called for a break. He has temporarily asked people to stop going to his remote home for a “miracle cure” after thousands flocked there, resulting in chaos in the surrounding area.
I know we did this last week, but this is unfortunately the reality of the hour that one officially applies the Cape Town Friday Rule. It’s called habit, and there’s no better way to form a habit other than through repetition. Essentially you should now start embracing everything non work-like, so let’s celebrate with a naked shower protest.
This will probably rate right up there with their worst ever experiences together as grandfather and grandson. It certainly wasn’t one of those happy days like you’d see on adverts or in the movies. Although, mind you, I suppose it did start out as an innocent canoe trip which was probably fun for a while.
I cannot believe how quickly this day has come. And I must say a big well done to those of you who did the right thing and bought your tickets before they sold out. There are only 90 tickets left now, so good luck to your friends who left it to the last minute. They [...]
On this the official hour of the application of the Cape Town Friday Rule, we thought we would spoil you a little. Yes, he’s doing a cooking show because he’s winning television right now. And with lines like: “I killed this cow myself, winners stalk and kill their food without earthly weapons,” get ready for some winning recipes.
That’s right, camel milk demand is on the up and the word is getting out. Demand from diabetic patients, parents of autistic children and sufferers of Crohn’s disease has resulted in them becoming their own powerful lobbyists. Internationally that is. So when will camel milk sail into the mainstream market here at home I wonder?
Just picked up some news on SA’s leading fashion blog, PopYaCollar.co.za, that Giorgio Armani has bought a house in Camps Bay. I just love the way he rolls and cannot wait to join him for a Corona at Caprice! Apparently the house is on Ronald Road – PopYacollar has an aerial shot showing where it [...]
Perlemoen, in particular. I know a few chaps who used pull out the odd perly when we were younger. It was childish and naive at the time I thought, although I too engaged in other unrelated mischief of my own. Anyway, aquaculture has always fascinated me and the recession did it no favours. This however, might be the new oil.
I’m not going to pretend that the Caprice Beach Volleyball Tournament was packed with revolting-looking people and everyone was bored. As much as I don’t want you to feel bad if you didn’t make it, IT WAS EPIC. Well done to the Savages who took the glory! I got that pic of the girl from [...]
Well, I’m pretty proud of that headline. Cornell University and the French Culinary Institute have developed a food printer that runs off puree and spits out sculptures – like rocketships made of gouda and scallions. And now we can have coconut sans awful coconut texture.
I’m not sure how readily the service is available, but La Muse and I took (stole) one of the picnic baskets from The Roundhouse to the beach this weekend. We indulged in the likes of their homemade truffle cream cheese, spread on ciabatta, with shaven ham and oysters on the side. Naturally there was a [...]
A lot of people said that it would be hard to top last year’s Vibe party – but that was obviously before we pulled out the little ace up our sleeve, in the form of The Grand Cafe And Beach who will be presenting this year’s Vibe party. And for those of you trying to [...]
The giant has realised a gap in the market with this new feature it’s adding to the existing structural layout of the site. Like you’d click on the left toolbar to access news or images, soon you’ll search for a recipe based on quite specific criteria. Even real chefs are amped.
Popped into Giovanni’s last night to grab some snackaroos, following an epic evening at Cape Town’s Design Indaba (loved the MINI stand – which let’s you design your own MINI). So La Muse and I picked up some cold meats and salads, as you do, and headed to the counter to pay. Lo and behold, [...]
In sticking with the theme of striving to keep you up-to-date with all the latest information concerning matters of investment and business, we now bring you a story to tickle your taste buds in a new way. Brussels has declared the pasty is now no longer in any danger of being plagiarised.
That’s how they’re rolling in Game stores at the moment. This genuine in-store signage was spotted by 2oceansviber Casey A, who was no doubt in the store to get a 90cm Telefunken plasma for thirty bucks. Luckily her trip was made all the more enjoyable, with this beaut! Naturally this post will be going straight [...]
You may be aware that there have been Himalayan Tahr’s living on the slopes our beloved Table Mountain for many years. The population has dwindled in recent times, and it was decided to remove all of the exotic creatures for good. However, a have few managed to evade the sniper’s barrel. Until now.
Our friends from the eastern side of the world have long been known to be rather enterprising with the way that they decimate the ocean to sustain their fish needs. A photographer has been able to reveal their latest shocking technique: cyanide poisoning free-divers.
Eating out of dust bins has been all the rage here in South Africa for quite a while now and our rubbish is sorted by bergies long before it even reaches the recycling area back at the depot. Now, a certain Sasha Hall has been arrested in the UK for “theft by finding.”
It’s quite full-on, this one – and it certainly doesn’t need any explanation. I mean, you GET the humour, right? It would have been one thing if the label was on a 6-pack of eggs. Because a male chicken is a cock, and it would kind of make sense that the eggs are ‘cock’s fresh.’ [...]
But not by Julian Assange. This American Life reports that the recipe was published as a photograph on page 28 of the Atlantic Journal-Constitution newspaper in 1979 as part of an inconspicuous historical piece on the Coca-Cola company, but the small size of the newspaper, the poor placement of the article and a complete lack of the World Wide Web meant that the historical leak went unnoticed. You can see it after the jump.
Well this seems like a good way to end the week/start the weekend. Beer-batter marshmallows. I don’t know how I feel about these things, taste-wise, but in terms of taking something awesome and then coating it in something else that’s awesome, beer marshmallows get my stamp of approval.
In a great example of irony, two McDonald’s executives have decided to throw the concept of fast food on its head and launch a chain of healthy restaurants. However, more ironic is the name that has been given to the chain: Lyfe. You are not going to believe this.
If you haven’t heard of the Good Work Gig then you’re in for a treat. The GWG will be hosted by the Grand Cafe on Camps Bay beach, and is in aid of The Good Work Foundation. Keeping in spirit with its name, the Good Work Foundation is a charity dedicated to helping the young [...]
