SILENT SUNSET PARTY on CAMPS BAY BEACH

On Saturday, 10 December from 5-8pm, we will be hosting a SILENT SUNSET PARTY on CAMPS BAY BEACH featuring our multi-channel wireless headphones with Uppercut DJs, DJ Mikey Dread and DJ Julian rocking Hip Hop, Reggae and Funky House.

Not only does it promise to be a pumping beach party, but it’s also a fundraiser for the much-loved M*A*S*H*E*D Truck – one of only 2 Artcars to have been to every Afrikaburn. It’s a great chance for the Afrikaburn community to come together before the holidays. Bring your beach blanket, your picnic, your smile, kick off your shoes and dance barefoot on the sand to 3 channels of music from some of Afrikaburn’s and Rocking the Daisies’ all-time favourite DJ’s.

Tickets costs R100/pp at Quicket leading up to the event or R120 if purchased on the day at Camps Bay Beach.

Dash Restaurant has a new Chef

Within Cape Town’s crowded and critically demanding restaurant scene, Dash at the Queen Victoria Hotel in the Waterfront, is currently rated as one of the best in the city. Dash is now excited to announce the appointment of Stellenbosch born and bred Germaine Esau as its new Executive Chef. Arguably one of the most innovative chefs in the country, Germaine is described as a visionary genius and someone who can create combinations and masterpieces that other chefs would not attempt. “I come from a family of brilliant cooks and have always loved cooking. As a young boy I used to help my father create new dishes in the kitchen and this is probably where my passion for cooking was sparked, “says Germaine.

Germaine, who initially studied Geology, decided to enter the Chefs Secret competition in 2008 during his final exams and, to his surprise, he won. The prize was a fully paid bursary to study at ICA for 2 years. “I enjoy competitions”, explains Germaine, “because they challenge my culinary ability, creativity, and basic cooking techniques.” Read more Dash Restaurant has a new Chef

DoggyDo – Mobile app for South African Dog owners

DoggyDo is a free to download mobile phone application, which lists dog-friendly establishments, services and vendors across South Africa. DoggyDo’s handy geo-location function ensures dog owners have the most relevant and proximal options in the palm of their hands. The app also allows users to interact with other dogs and their humans in their area – actively supporting a more engaged and involved dog loving community in South Africa.

DoggyDo was launched in June 2015 by Shani Judes. After getting her Welsh Terrier, Bennett,  she struggled to find dog-friendly spaces and services in S.A. She decided to take matters into her own hands. Turns out she wasn’t the only one experiencing this problem. Just over a year later and the DoggyDo App has just attained its 12,000 download mark.

In South Africa, a country in which only games or banking apps see any reasonable download traction, 12,000 downloads for a niche listing-app is quite the impressive landmark. It highlights the interest and demand of the new breed of savvy South African dog owner. DoggyDo has become the platform that South Africans turn to for all things dog related.
