So Valentines Day is coming up soon and even though it is pretty lame and a huge money making racket, I can’t help but like it. I like getting spoilt on the day, I like all the hearts and the sweetness of it and I love having yet another excuse to stuff my round face with chocolate bars, but hey that could just be me.
There are 2 things happening in our neighbourhood leading up to and after this big day, so I thought I would fill you guys in, in case you would like to participate because I think both events are going to be super super fun!
First one is another speed dating night happening at good old Wolves, in conjunction with Another-Day, on the 12th of February, so just enough time to nab yourself someone special for the actual day. The last time we hosted one of these shin-digs it was a huge success, I was just an onlooker, but it really did look like a lot of fun. So if any of you are keen to attend and perhaps find some love, you better book your love-seat today!
The second event is also going to be super fun and it happening on the 15th of February at the Alex Theatre in Braamfontein. It’s the “What Were You Thinking?” party. The event can be described as an anti-Valentines day party, where the main inspiration is the worst gifts that people have received over Valentines day. The event will start at 8pm and officially close at 4am. There will be over 8 awesome local bands and DJ’s performing on the night, my brother Yo Grapes will be there (reason enough to go); Prototype; Go Barefoot (Go Johnny); Gangsterdam; Random Citizens to name a few.
It’s going to be 2 floors of fun with all sorts of music such as electro, dub step, trap, and techno on one floor and bands on the other. There will also be 2 bars for all your drinking needs.
