As a bit of a departure from a restaurant – and as a different way to spend extravagantly – make sure you pop into an Oil and Vinegar store. Started in the Netherlands, it has now branched out across Europe and has two stores in South Africa – one in Fourways and one in Pretoria and, hopefully, a third in Cape Town soon.
The summer blockbusters are landing and I do not think I will be seeing many of them. One of the few I have made an effort to see is Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. Perhaps part of its allure is that it reminds me of a time when the summer hits did not comprise solely of sparkly vampires and unbidden remakes.
