NIROX Sculpture Park is one of our favourite out-of-town drives. The location is exquisite and the events are always interesting. This Saturday, 16 March, they have an open-air African interpretation of the Shakespearean classic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Performed by the National School of Arts, this version is described as “Renaissance drama meets Generation Z”. The score will be performed live by Lerato Lichaba and Tubatsi Moloi from The Urban Village ensemble. Their particular sounds of ancient-futurism are brought to life through flutes, guitars, vocal synthesisers, traditional African instruments and live loops.
Chicago’s Piano Bar, AKA Party Central, is celebrating St Patrick’s Day with a Rocking St Paddy’s party on Friday 15 March. There are great drinks specials – indulge with 40% off till 7pm, then R15 for a tequila or GnT from 7pm to 10pm. From 9pm, Lonehill Estate will rock out and DJ Vee will take us through the afterparty. There will also be a pot of gold hidden somewhere. Will you find it?
More beer, please
Dress in green and go to the place that is usually yellow (that’s The Beerhouse at Pineslopes) on 16 March for some live music and excellent beer (of course). The lineup includes Jerry And The Bandits, Brendon White, Justin Serrao, the Gobabis and then finally Mr. TK Tequila on the decks to take your vibe all through the night!
