Origin: the most beautiful party of the season

Sunday the 31st of January was so hot that even Satan decided to take the day off. Based on this knowledge I’m able to say that Satan is, in fact, a bit of a pussy. This is not to say that Sunday wasn’t boiling hot, but merely that the attendees of Origin 2012 were troopers who refused to be deterred by sweltering heat, the threat of Monday-morning first-degree sunburn, and sand that was hot enough to deep fry any foot that was foolish enough to dwell within it for more than a tenth of a second.

We flew across the circus

After much anticipation, it’s finally time for Alien Safari presents Flying Circus. Waking up early on Sunday morning after having a ‘sleep’ you can already feel the nerves and excitement growing.

You know that everyone has been speaking about the party and basically everyone you know is going. You get yourself prepared and you hit the road.

MCQP – NoBucks Style

We’ve always heard about the Mother City Queer Project, yet we were never overly eager to give it a go

Alas, this weekend, we thought we’d give it a bash ; you know, to see what all the fuss is about.

We stumbled out in the early hours of the morning with a dominant verdict:

Hands down, MCQP is one of Cape Town’s best productions and parties

We Do Not Sleep At Synergy Live

Often in life, we have the tendency to hype things up beyond measures, and in turn raise expectations that are just high enough not to be met.

Sounds familiar? well, you will find comfort in knowing that Synergy Live does not fall within the above scenario.

Over 40 sleepless hours of pure mayhem reminded me why Synergy Live is not only a personal favourite, but possibly the best outdoor festival in SA.

More after the jump!

Fuzi Weekend

Theres a Fuzz in my head

This past weekend was nuts . Not the kind that you feed to the squirrels in town , but the kind that kills brain cells and makes you feel dumb for a week. In our “trendy” city over saturated by electro-this and indie-that , it’s hard to find those true rock ‘n roll shows that remind you what live music is about. The show.

Pepenero – A Seafood & Italian cuisine that is NoBucks friendly

Here’s an odd thing ; we’ve personally been to Pepenero several times, for reasons you about to hear, yet we’ve also realised that many of you haven’t even heard of the place, so we’ve decided to throw a review on it for you.

It’s a MASSIVE restaurant, sitting comfortably in Moullie Point, facing the sea (don’t hate us for loving nature) and offers a variety of cuisines.

We went to check out Seven Sins :)

So we’re back to our normal operations after an insanely busy month, and began our moola saving journey at a new spot on Kloof St. – Seven Sins :)

The place boosts plenty of character and is defined by the Seven Sins in all aspects.

Oh, and they have some pretty awesome specials too!

Mugged on Roeland review

So we’ve figured it’s been a while since we threw you a review of a NoBucks speciality, which led us to a new favourite – Mugged on Roeland :)

A small, vibey joint that reeks of specials on a daily basis. The food, however, reeks of pure awesomeness.

After the jump!

Tell me you're not drooling!
