A couple of weeks ago Shane and I took a drive out to good old Pretoria to experience our first ever Harvest Festival at the historic Kleinkaap Boutique Hotel. I didn’t really know what to expect but damn did we have an awesome evening. The Kleinkaap Hotel is a nearly 100 years old and the property that it’s built on is so so pretty. When we arrived we were greeted by a huge Cape Dutch Manor house and two vintage cars parked in the driveway, it felt like we had stepped back in time.
Down in the expansive garden, they had set up four long Harvest Tables under a sky of fairy lights and oak trees. It was such an awesome sight. I don’t know if any of you have ever been to a dinner like this before, but basically what happens is you find a spot at the table and you introduce yourself to whoever is sitting next to and across from you and then mountains of food gets brought out and everyone shares and eats dinner together. It was actually really awesome and the food was delicious! We also got to listen to Georgetown Band for the first time ever, imagine Kings of Leon but more folky, they were so good!
