May 2015: 17 stories in 11 publications

This month, you can escape to the winelands for a meal at Bread and Wine, Tokara Deli, and Terroir. Or stay in Cape Town and dine at The Quarterdeck. You can also learn about the tenth anniversary of StreetSmart SA, enjoy a Mother’s Day snippet from celebrity chef Siba Mtongana, or learn about the bid to put the brand back in brandy (after you’ve been through the guide to brandy for beginners of course).

In entertainment news, Emily Child returns to the stage in the controversial play that won her a Fleur du Cap Theatre Award, Jonathan Roxmouth prepares for his upcoming musical roles, and Beatenberg drummer Robin Brink chats more about the band’s remarkable success.

If you’re in the mood for a holiday, take a walk on Portuguese Island with MSC Cruises or indulge in the foodie heaven at One&Only Cape Town. Speaking of the Mother City, you can also take a break at one of the top five Cape Town spas or experience the magic of ancient Egypt in the spectacular Tutankhamun exhibit.

And if you want to train your brain? Learn how to become a wealthy freelancer or just how to know yourself:

“Once you’ve figured out what is and isn’t working in your life, consider the single most important change you’d like to make. Then work towards that goal, even if it’s only one small step at a time. Day by day, you’ll get closer to achieving it. And day by day, things will get better. You just have to make a start.”
