Save Water and try these two new Bars in Cape Town this holiday

The Botanical Bar opening soon on Longmarket Street will use Cape botanicals as their secret weapon.


Sweet Glittery Black Gin??

Wonder if this will come to South Africa in 2018?

Unicorn Tears has launched a limited-edition of black Gin this Christmas in the UK. Might have been better for Halloween don’t cha think?

Food is still good after expiration date

Dairy can last up to two weeks, eggs almost two weeks and grains more than a year after the best before date. See how long other foods can last here.

If you don’t like to waste perfectly good food just because of a label, Best Before shop opened in Sandton. They sell non-perishable foods and other items that are near, or past their expiration date at a discount! They said it best “The best bang for your buck”!
