Great dates to start your month with a bang.
Run baby run The annual FNB Cape Town 12 ONERUN celebrates much of what the Mother City has to offer, including the fresh vibe, natural beauty, urban attractions and people. Run solo or go as a team, and remember to dress up! On 21 May, starting at Milnerton’s Woodbridge Island and ending at Portside Tower in the CBD. For more info, visit thecapetown12.com.
Let’s go We love a good celebration and we can’t think of a tastier, more fun way to toast the end of the olive harvest than a trip to the annual Riebeek Valley Olive Festival. Make a day or weekend of this fabulous event, and enjoy wine, food, craft beer and live entertainment at seven great venues. It all happens on 6-7 May and R80 will buy a full weekend’s access, plus a glass of welcoming wine. Book tickets via webtickets.co.za.
Paired perfection Peaches and cream, Romeo and Juliet, peanut butter and jam – some things are just meant to go together. So how about a glass (or two) of great red wine and a platter (or two) of fabulous cold meats, terrines and pâtés for a match made in culinary heaven? Shiraz & Charcuterie at Anthonij Rupert Wines in Franschhoek is the perfect excuse to spend time in the magnificent countryside, indulging in artisanal fare and a convivial vibe. The deliciousness happens on 27 May and tickets are R220. Book tickets via webtickets.co.za.
