Just before the soccer world cup we brought you a story about a deranged restaurant owner in Arizona serving up lion’s meat as a cute homage to SA. Now those yanks are at it again. This time in a different restaurant in the same carnivorous state. They just can’t keep their hands off our cats.
If you’re as grossly obese as this man taking a brisk walk every couple of days just won’t do when attempting to lose weight. There are a number of reasons for this, foremost amongst which are that you weigh so much that you cannot walk and if you do manage to get up your legs will sheer at the ankles.
So! Pretend we’re having that bit of dialogue from Pulp Fiction where we talk about Burger King burgers being called ‘royale’ in France, except we’re talking about North Korea, and they call them “minced meat and bread,” to avoid referring to the uniquely American hamburger. Also, this is a new thing.
The phrase goes, “If you can’t handle the heat, get the hell out of the kitchen”. In economic terms, the past two years have been pretty chilly, which has in turn left more than a few businesses owners feeling a little hot under the collar. Controversial Cape Town restaurant, Jardine, is the latest to fall foul of the global recession, and the head chef has made for greener pastures.
Now your chocolate hoovering habit is propping up the revenues of would-be dictators, more specifically, the regime of the Ivory Coast’s political limpet, Laurent Gbagbo. Feel bad. Feel very bad. And fat. Evil and fat.
Chatter on the street is that Prince William’s stag party is going down at the Fez in Cape Town. Nothing’s confirmed at this point, but the rationale for the speculation is rather convincing. Click through for more.
Having never met before, SA cricket captain, Graeme Smith and SA surf champ, Jordy Smith, finally met at Cafe Caprice this week. Apparently they were downing 2oceansvibe cocktails all night. Because that’s how they….? *Have you spotted any celebs around town? Send ‘em through and you will be rewarded
It was just a month ago that a reader sent in proof that Stodels Nursery was selling ‘Ass Succulents.’ We agreed that this made sense, giving the current demand for Ass Products. But Ass Succulent sales were clearly off the charts, as Stodels is now also selling Pear Ass and Peach Ass. Who would have thought? Check it out after the link.
Checkers have made well-known South African socialite, fashion designer and aspiring chef (that’s kok in Afrikaans, I’ll have you know), Nataniel their go-to guy for meat-product advertisment. As you can see, they like to push it pretty hard.
The Silly Season is no better on display than in the hub of silliness, Camps Bay. Our brothers and sisters from the north have arrived, with their vests and muscles and costume jewelry. It’s quite beautiful to watch, my china! I took a little video clip of the action and you just won’t believe what I caught on tape, cycling past.

1800 Degree Grill Room is pleased to offer a world class, 3-course Christmas lunch and dinner on the 25th December (Salmon starter + Turke/Lamb/Gammon main, veg and dessert), as well as a New Years Eve dinner, featuring Yellow Fin Tuna sashimi, tournedos of beef fillet, truffle creamed potatoes, asparagus and… I must stop there…I’m drooling..

When I mentioned to the Friendly store owner last weekend that they should look into stocking the Robertsons Salt & Vinegar seasoning (I use it on popcorn – like at the movies), I didn’t expect it to appear on the shelves so soon. One week later, BANG, there it was. Nice job, Friendly store.
I have been dying for these pics from the GUESS fashion show which was held at Caprice at the end of last week. It was on the beach and was jam-packed with beautiful angels and slicksters, all melting into the Atlantic Ocean and Camps Bay sunset. 14 beautiful models dressed in the latest GUESS threads took to the ramp as table mountain glowed in the dusk. Click for the carnage..
With the Ass Flavour and Ass Food explosion experienced over the past year or so, it was only a matter of time before people would want to grow some ass at home. It would be dangerous to use your own ass to create different foods and drinks, so a big round of applause goes to Stodels nurseries who have stepped up to the plate.
Nando’s have taken things to the next level this time, with the appointment of their new “CEO.” His name is Kagiso and the whole ad rips off every ounce of the Trevor Noah Cell C ads. They mention 5G (rather than Cell C’s claimed 4G) and they even play with the Cell C ‘logo’ at the end. Full marks!
Researchers at NEC System Technologies have designed robots with the ability to identify dozens of different wines, cheeses and appetizers, because that’s something we need robots for. Except they think people taste like bacon.
A blog post written by Monica Gaudio was copied entirely and published in a for-profit magazine, Cook’s Source, without permission or payment. On contacting the publication, Ms. Gaudio was informed that “the web is considered ‘public domain’” and that she should compensate Cook’s Source for editing her work. Things have not gone well for Cook’s Source since then.
I was not aware that muffin’s had an ass, let alone a tail, or any other body part for that matter. Sure, humans do get ‘muffin top’ when their jeans are too tight, but I had never imagined it the other way around. Nonetheless, the Spar on Regent Road, Sea Point seem to be ahead of all of us and are now selling just the ass part of a muffin. Amazing!
Apple Launches New Macbook Air – At Apple’s keynote today, it was all about the Mac. “What would happen if a Macbook met an iPad?” asked Steve Jobs. “An iPad has instant-on. Great battery life, amazing standby time, solid state storage, and it’s thinner and lighter. What would happen if a Mac and an iPad [...]
To all the ex-pats and foreign readers out there…it’s October already and you’re leaving it pretty late, if you still haven’t booked your villa for your Cape town holiday. I mean, you ARE coming to Cape Town over December, right? Best you get moving – and 2oceansvibe Villas has something for every pocket. See what’s available after the jump.
My fellow 1800 fans will be pleased to hear that they have launched their new Summer Menu! And they’re doing it properly too, with a ridiculous new R169 Summer Menu Promotion. Unbelievably, that includes a glass of sparkling, starter, 200g rump (or sirloin of rib-eye) + signature sauce, dessert and underground parking at my residence, The Cape Royale Hotel!
The more trendy of our London ex-pats will know of Carluccio’s Caffès – a great place to meet over a drink and simple well-prepared Italian food, made on the premises. Although one extra thing seems to have been added to their New Bond Street Carluccio’s menu – something that certainly is Italian and hand-made, but not right there on the premises!
Marmite, Mrs Balls Chutney, Iron Brew, and Tropica. These are the flavours of my childhood, and every now and then, a craving hits, and the inevitable binge ensues. I know, I disgust myself. Happily, I’ve been vindicated by science. Get a child hooked on your product in their formative years, and you’ve got them for life.
One of the world’s most celebrated DJs, JIMPSTER, is playing live at Cafe Caprice on Saturday night. And, what’s more, his entire set will be broadcast live on 2oceansvibe Radio. So if you’re unable to make it, you can have your own little party on your ace in your bedsit in Balham! Good lord, it’s [...]
Anyone who went the first time will happily confirm it was the greatest party of their lives. Well it’s happening again – and it’s gonna be crazier than ever. Chicks in lumo bikinis and roller-skates are not uncommon at these Kings Of Neon parties (how awesome is that name?). Trust me, it’s off the hizzo! [...]

Wow, and there I was thinking we were confused! With our London taxis on the roads and people singing Ole Ole at the sports stadiums, we certainly are a melting pot of cultures and have become professionals at ‘borrowing’ foreign nation’s ideas, pastimes and even sayings. Not that there is anything wrong with that – [...]
