Look, the first thing we need to do here is to tell the people of Port Elizabeth that we’re just joking.
We don’t want a repeat of the time we made a joke about Mossel Bay, and the entire town collectively lost their sense of humour and attacked en masse.
Big up to Mossel Bay, even though I’m apparently on the banned list at every single business in the vicinity. Gutted.
With that out the way, here’s what’s cracking in PE this weeked – Saturday, April 27 – it’s the Fitch & Leedes Gin & Tonic Festival, friends.
Kicking off at midday (12PM) and lasting until 8PM, and taking place at the trendy Tramways Building (the perfect setting for a Saturday sundowner), here’s how things work:
Grab your Festival gin glass upon arrival and head to the cash loading station to load money onto a Howler card (the event is completely cashless – what a breeze).
Once you have your Howler card sorted, take a stroll through the various gin bars where you can choose to purchase your gins as either tasters, singles, or double perfect serve G&Ts.
Each gin is perfectly paired with nothing but the freshest and finest garnishes to tantalise your tastebuds, along with the bespoke mixer range from Fitch & Leedes.
That’s good news for the gins, with this below from brand manager, James Shaw:
Fitch & Leedes is a premium lifestyle brand that has pushed the boundaries in terms of quality and product innovation, offering gin lovers a superior experience as the range of mixers preferred by most master distillers and mixologists.
By the way, those are the bigger 750ml bottles that are now available, which come in handy when you’re hosting the jol.
Speaking of jols – there will be live music at the festival from the hugely popular J’Something, as well as tasty food and other goodies.
Enjoy yourselves, Port Elizabeth – you’re worth it.
