Monday Magic 


Monday always gets a bad rap. If you want to celebrate time away from the laptop on this dreaded day, Old Town Italy has just the thing. The date night special runs from sunset until closing time and includes a free glass of wine each with every large pan pasta to share.

Apart from this great chance to wine and dine with your significant other, Old Town Italy rekindles warm Italian hospitality with authentic Mediterranean cuisine.

Vegans, vegetarians, and banting followers, or just about anyone looking for a healthy option can grab a Monday meat-free two for one special at Lexis Eatery in Sea Point.

This eatery’s answer to couple’s cuisine is a luxurious two course meal with a choice of starters and main with a complimentary bottle of red wine. Spoil your other half with delicious two-course dining from R350 - R385 per couple and end the evening with the acclaimed Hussar’s chocolate martini. Needless to say, bookings are essential.

Wednesday is Wine Day in Cape Town

If your tastebuds are more tantalised by bowls of goodness then the Poke Co in Seapoint, Cape Town or Claremontis your place to just ‘be’. The R295 special for two signature poke bowls with a bottle of Gabrielskloof rose will do good by your tastebuds at this popular eatery.

Thursday Night with Your Darling


When the weekend’s so close you can almost taste it, there’s no better way to get the party started than with a burger and an artisan beer at Darling Brew Room Tasteroom in Woodstock.

Plus, you’ll get the great vibes for free to get your holiday weekend off to a flying start.

Friday Fun
