Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - HOME -

Now with six branches around the coun­try, Jerry’s Burger Bar in Ob­ser­va­tory was the first to open and blaze a trail of yummy burg­ers and scrump­tious shakes. On top of that are tacos, grills, hot dogs and sal­ads if you are that way in­clined.

Tele­phone 021 447 8554.

One road be­hind Lower Main, where most of the shops and busi­nesses are, is A Touch Of Mad­ness. A bar and res­tau­rant in a con­verted Vic­to­rian house, it has a dozen lo­cal craft beers on tap, a good se­lec­tion of wine by the glass and a street-food in­spired menu. Look out for the monthly Vinyl Fair held here. Tele­phone 021 447 4650.

While golf is the fo­cus, the River Club also houses a Slug & Let­tuce and bar. (021 448 6117) The SA As­tro­nom­i­cal Ob­ser­va­tory, af­ter which Obz is named, is next door. Open evenings with lec­tures and tours of the site are held reg­u­larly. The next is tonight. (021 447 0025)

Among the mu­se­ums at Groote Schuur Hos­pi­tal is The Heart Of Cape Town, which hon­ours those who took part in the first hu­man heart trans­plant in 1967 – Pro­fes­sor Chris­ti­aan Barnard, the re­cip­i­ent Louis Washkan­sky, and the donor, Denise Dar­vall. Tele­phone 021 404 1967.
