It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And no, I’m not talking about Christmas; J A N U A R Y is the actual most wonderful time, because on the 2nd, all your ENTERTAINER SA 2020 offers are unlocked and ready to use. I know, I can’t contain my excitement either.
It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new DECADE, and you can officially use your ENTERTAINER SA 2020 offers. What a time to be alive! This year you should:
1 | EAT VEGAN | JESSY’S WAFFLES
If going vegan is on your list of New Year’s resolutions, then listen up because I’ve found the place for you. Jessy’s has the yummiest plant-based and gluten-free waffles you’ll ever have in your life. Don’t believe me? Go try ’em yourself, and thank me later. I mean, just look at these beauties
2 | GO BEER TASTING | DEN ANKER
On the other hand, if a Belgian beer tasting has always been on your bucket list, or your New Year’s resolution is to tick off a tasting at every Capetonian brewery, then you might want to begin your 2020 adventure at Den Anker. And boy, do they have a breathtaking view and a lekker vibe.
3 | BE ADVENTUROUS | JEEP TOURS
2020 is the year. In fact, it’s your year. Your year to do flipping cool things, and be adventurous. So do flipping cool things, like dune bashing and sandboarding (!!!) with Jeep Tours. What more can I say? Go and do it already.
JOHANNESBURG & PRETORIA
1 | TRY NEW THINGS | BLANK BAR
This year you’re going to step outside of your comfort zone and be open to trying new things. And I don’t mean you have to do something crazy, like going bungee jumping every weekend. You can literally start by trying out a new bar. Blank Bar, to be exact. Blank has a new “theme” or experience every six weeks, which means a brand new menu and new cocktails to try.
2 | KEEP IT INTERESTING | PAUL’S HOMEMADE ICE CREAM
On the topic of trying new things, Paul’s Homemade Ice Cream isn’t afraid to experiment – they once had a whole breakfast menu. Breakfast and ice cream? I know, weird. But it just worked. There’s always an interesting new flavour to try, and they knock it out of the park every. single. time. Opt for the classic Birthday Cake (my personal fave), or try their Flavour of the Month (which is always changing) on one of their warm waffles.
3 | HAVE MORE FUN | BLUE OCEAN VR
I highly recommend you add “have more fun” to your list of New Year’s resolutions, and start with Blue Ocean VR. It’s virtual reality, and it’s probably the most fun you’ll ever have. There are so many experiences to choose from: go skiing in the Swiss Alps, explore the deep blue sea, or play an action-packed first-person shooter game.
1 | SOAK UP THE SUN | OCEAN VENTURES
News flash, you live on the coast. So if you haven’t tried surfing yet, then you’re not a true Durbanite and you should be ashamed of yourself. Just kidding But seriously, add this one to your 2020 To Do list right now, because not only is it great exercise, it’s also good for the mind and soul.
2 | EAT GOOD FOOD | THE BURGER BAR
Life is way too short to eat bad food. Period. Which is why I recommend you chow down on one of The Burger Bar’s juicy creations, or visit one of these life-changing pasta places. Mmm, I can see your food future, and it looks dee-licious.
3 | TREAT YO’SELF | HELLO HUNNY
This is the year of YOU, and you should treat yo’self as much as possible. Because if you look good, you feel good, too. And you deserve to feel good every second of every day throughout 2020 (and beyond), so start this decade on the right foot with a fresh pedi at Hello Hunny (pun intended).
