1699 days ago
In just a few days, the party season will officially be upon us! We've decided it's the perfect time to chill out and relax before the summer festivities begin. The 947 Crew has gone head to head and chosen their top picks of the weekend have left it to you to rate who has the coolest weekend suggestions
Zweli's Top Turn Down Picks:
I’m kind of a party animal, so, when it’s time to turn down, I need a little bit of both worlds. Great Dane is an awesome hangout spot in Braamfontein and it is also the place that I spend most of my time drinking beers and eating the best gourmet hotdogs in SA. The décor, crowd and especially the music, is extremely eclectic. You’ll hear everything from Kanye West to MGMT and Queen- all on the same night. Although I use this place to chill out, beware! You could find yourself catching a cab home at 3am. More details here.
A night out with John Legend
With seven sold out shows in South Africa and more than 10 million album sales worldwide, I think it’s safe to say that we can call him ‘The Legend’. John Legend is back at the Coca Cola Dome on Sunday for the Joburg leg of his ‘A night out with John Legend- All of Me Tour’. I’ll be there on Sunday night, mesmerizing the Dome with my vocals too.
Barclays Premier League action
As the ultimate Liverpool FC fan, I can’t wait to see my boys back in action against Crystal Palace in the Barclays Premier League. This game kicks off at 3.30pm on Sunday. The team hasn’t been good this season, but here’s hoping Liverpool gets back to its winning ways. Manchester United takes on Arsenal on Saturday night at 7.30pm and that should be a CRACKER!
Hunger Games- Mockingjay Part 1
Jennifer Lawrence hasn’t had the greatest few months following her photo scandal, but she’s back doing what she does best in the brand new Hunger Games movie - Mockingjay Part 1. This one releases on Friday, 21 November at cinemas nationwide.
Karabo’s Top Turn Down Picks
Flavours of The City
As a self-declared foodie, there's nothing like a relaxed day out in the Jozi sun with some good food to tickle those taste buds. Think wine, cheese and delicious dishes prepared by some of Joburg's top chefs. Take the whole family along and enjoy what this year's Flavours of The City has to offer at the JHB Zoo this Saturday and Sunday. Tickets cost between R100 - R140. Click here for more info.
30 Seconds to Mars
Okay, so maybe a rock concert isn't the most relaxing thing one can get up to, but why would you want to miss out on experiencing one of the greatest bands in the world live? 30 Seconds to Mars will be rocking the Coca Cola Dome this Friday, 21 November. Ticket prices start at R310 and can be purchased at Computicket.
Red Door Experience
Everyone needs a bit of pampering once in a while, especially before all the hectic summer festivities begin. Sandton City will be hosting the Red Door Experience this weekend where you can find express spa services, make overs, make-up master classes and a full day 'beauty school'. So, if you want to sit back, relax and feel like a queen, click here for details.
VIDI (Video on Demand)
When the 947 Crew is not out and about attending Joburg's biggest events or checking out the coolest hang out spots, you'll find me on my couch, popcorn in hand watching the latest and hottest series. And now, thanks to VIDI, the brand new Video on Demand service that just launched in SA, one does not have to worry about catching up on all the latest movie and TV show releases. Don't want to get left behind either? Click here for all the details.
