What’s On Wednesdays 27 Apr – 3 May 17

Ok yes we forgot yesterday was Wednesday, well not really. What actually happened was that the day was filled with events that had me busy till 3 AM this morning. From having a #CablewayOfficeDay with Table Mountain Aerial Cableway in their Wifi Lounge and being in the middle of a lightning storm with no power at some point we were stuck in the cosy upper Cableway station for a few hours, the pursuing stormy weather actually saw the next event with Thrive Hout Bay being postponed till further notice but we had some wrap up work to do around it and then the day ended off with joining some family for a potjie kos evening.

We would still like to give you our weekly list of events we have found in Cape Town and if we missed an event or you are planning or have an event please connect with us via our contact page.
