Cape Town institution and every foodie’s delight, Caveau Restaurant, has closed down. After eight incredible years, there is now one less thing you are able to do before you die. This follows the closing of Caveau Restaurant in Newlands in December 2012. Find memories include their signature chalk board and famed range of tapas, matched [...]
That’s right, beautiful angels – Wednesday night is all about you at the Mount Nelson Planet Bar. The guys should probably be there too, if they know what’s good for them. But they won’t be getting a complimentary gin cocktail when they arrive – that’s just for the girls. What’s more, this vibe is carrying [...]
The seaside town of Pringle Bay in the Western Cape is outraged at a National Geographic documentary that used food to lure baboons to a specially modified and fully furnished cottage in the area. The cottage is part of the Cape Hangklip Hotel, and the television series, Big Baboon House, raises ethical questions.
Entries are now open for an epic Friday on 6 July in Cape Town and Joburg – that’s right gang, this time we’re spreading the love! We’ve always felt that life was too short for a five-day workweek. Much like the folks at the Jack Daniel Distillery, who celebrate Fridays with an age old tradition [...]
Last week, on the IanF Show on 2oceansVibe Radio, Spike and IanF ate chilli because they needed something to keep them warm during Winter Week! Winter Week nestled perfectly around the winter solstice, which was on Friday, the shortest day, and the longest night – yuck! What better way to keep warm than with a [...]
America’s gay hating public have called for a boycott after cookie company Oreo posted a picture in support of Gay Pride on it’s website. I’d have thought it would have been the racists, seeing as an Oreo is all about vanilla sandwiched between two delicious pieces of chocolate wafer. Here’s what all the fuss was about.
Fruit and Veg City has been taking a social media lambasting from irate consumers that caught the fresh food retailer selling endangered fish species in a few of their stores. Debate was intense, with both customers and Fruit and Veg City getting in on the action. The retailer has since issued an official statement detailing how they plan to handle the situation of endangered fish “slipping through their nets”.
CLICK HERE for a new incredible fact EVERY DAY! Being in my *cough* early 30s, I am often blown away by the youth of today and their lack of knowledge when it comes to important pieces of life facts and information. The other day I asked SilverStreak if he was aware of Gloria Estefan’s hit [...]
Hear ye, Hear ye! If you didn’t get the the memo, Friday Done Jack’s Way is BACK! To that end, this is the call to entry for Friday Done Jack’s Way, Friday 22 June 2012. Ready? And GO! This one’s a goodie so listen up. With Cape Town firmly in the grip of winter, there [...]
You may or may not have heard about Steers’ little marketing exercise yesterday. Offering a once-off Wacky Wednesday special of rib burgers for a mere R10, they were right to think that their stores might get a little busy. Boy, did they underestimate the response.
A new concept restaurant has met with some recent success. Dinner in the Sky has diners, dining table and waitstaff hoisted some 50 meters into the sky with a crane, where they can enjoy a high-altitude gourmet meal. The latest branch just opened up in in Brussels – take a look after the jump.
Did you just get a little shiver up your spine? I did. I really did. Do you remember that amazing time that we shared together last year? I remember it, so fondly. I really do. We were building something, something good, something great – a movement. A movement based on the premise that no one [...]
It’s a fraught world out there, friends. I don’t know about you, but I’ve noticed a flurry of activity around Father’s Day this year. It’s like for the first time in a long time, people are really considering what it means to be a man. A man, in this time and place. A man, versus [...]
Trying to avoid the title of White Elephant trainers, the City of Cape Town is considering turning Cape Town Stadium “into a hub of commercial activity”. The idea is to introduce restaurants, night clubs, sports bars and coffee spots to the stadium to make back some of the R44,6 million a year running costs.
A 2oceansViber recently sent us this picture and we had to share it. It’s nice to know that when you’re stranded on a paradise island, you can still get “Elegant C0ck”, and that the quality is guaranteed. Apparently it’s some sort of mosquito coil. I can’t see the relevance to the name. [Thanks Adrian!]
He may be worth $20 billion, but when Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg took his new wife, Priscilla Chan to lunch during their honeymoon in Rome he spent 32 Euros – and elected not to leave a tip. The cash-flush couple’s bill came to 32 euros after a lunch of deep-fried artichokes, fried pumpkin flowers, and [...]
Those of you living on in the real world would have been vaguely aware of a Japanese fishing vessel, the Eihatsu Maru, parked on South Africa’s fair shores in the last two weeks.What you might not have thought about in the ensuing drama was the incredible job that the crew of the SMIT Amandla tug [...]
Fat people take up a lot of space on the plane. I mean, how many times have you had to fold your arms so they can merely fit into their space, and yours. For a long time, we’ve all wanted them to have their own fat seats when they fly. Finally! This is a reality. Thank you, Airbus.
Remember that little chat we had regarding productivity last week? You may have remembered that I tend to take a stroll, and eat a tasty snack when my creative juices run dry. It’s a physical solution to a mental problem, and it works, really well. Well, sure, it’s a great solution, but the weather has [...]
It’s that time of year again when the De Grendel estate takes part in the fourth annual Soup, Sip and Bread Festival in the Durbanville Wine Valley. Winemakers and chefs from the valley will pair soups, stews and wines that will introduce some wonderful winter combinations. It’s all happening over the weekend of 2 and [...]
Men and women. We’re wired differently. Our work habits differ. I’m not sure what you’ve found in your daily experience, but in my own personal experience, I’ve found that I tend to work in bursts of high productivity. And sometimes, when the deadlines loom, and the pressure’s on, the magic evaporates into thin air. There’s [...]
Every year, S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna release a list of the world’s Top 100 Restaurants. Inclusion in the list is an honour that many restaurants lust after, and in the past we’ve had the privilege in the Western Cape to have several restaurants on the list. This year’s list sees Danish restaurant, Noma, maintain the title for a third year running – but where do our beloved SA restaurants stand?
Nando’s didn’t hesitate accepting the challenge that Santam had set them this week. In fact, Nando’s delivered a day early, and then bettered it, showing they definitely weren’t chicken. Some might call it a very good example of symbiotic radvertising.
I know a lot of you out there are big fans of the butter flavoured Act II popcorn, but I must say, I’m a plain salted man. That’s before I get home and prepare for another screening of Mad Men or the latest US iTunes movie. And by prepare, I am of course referring to [...]
COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED Taste of Cape Town isn’t just any food festival. No siree, this is a vetted affair. The restaurants and chefs attending are all invited to attend, it certainly isn’t one of those “anything goes” vibes. And that means quality, excellence, and most importantly, a symphony of pleasure in and around your [...]
Woolworths South Africa has earned the Almighty’s ire, not to mention that of dozens of their (former) Christian customers on Facebook, by besmirching their delicious, fruity hot cross bun packages with Halaal certifications. If it’s not soft drinks, it’s holy baked goods! Have they no shame?! Full details of this outrage after the jump!
Just because summer is winding down, it doesn’t give you any excuse let yourself go. Health is awesome, and health is also cheap. If you order one of these delicious breakfast options from Caprice’s Summer Shakedown menu, they’ll throw in a free coffee. We’re all about positive re-enforcement around here, and so are our friends. [...]
Zimbabweans will be reminded of the previous times the country has declared a state of disaster as food shortages threatened widespread starvation. A third of Zimbabwe’s current maize crop has just been written off due to a prolonged dry spell, according to reports.
The above was sent in by Carl Anderson, whose brother reports that Ass Fudge is now available at supermarkets in Brighton, UK. And not just any ass fudge – a Welsh Lady’s ass fudge! Will this horror have no end? CLICK HERE for all the ass products we have on record. It really is quite [...]
The Department of Health has released the results of a study completed earlier this year that paints a grim picture of both Cape Town and the Western Cape’s rampant use and abuse of alcohol. Long story short, the study concludes that Cape Town is South Africa’s drunkest city, and the Western Cape its booziest province. Er, yay?
