Compared to last weekend, this one is quite calmer. I think the city is still recovering from the epic weekend of last, and presumably with some vestiges of a hangover.
- Basically, we have the usual Essenwood and Shongweni markets to hit up.
- A play that will come to a close on Sunday, the Erl King, has come very highly recommended. It’s gotten some excellent reviews and even support from a usually very tough Durban audience. Theatre in this city has evolved into a lot of international-standard productions and to maintain that progress, we need to support it. And it’s easy to support when it’s good! So call up Seabrooke’s Theatre at DHS and book yourself some tickets. There’s a cool restaurant just across the road called La Bella, and a really popular coffee spot called Peg on the other side so you can make a proper outing of it.
- The Durban Pink Film Festival is screening the film ‘The Funny Guy’ at the KZNSA Gallery on Friday night at 6pm.
- If you want to go for a boogie after your play or movie-watching, on Friday night: Tiger Tiger is hosting a ‘Jerry Springer’ party, Origin is throwing a ‘rave-geddon’ and Skyybar is having a Game of Thrones party. On Saturday night Origin is celebrating the longest night of the year with ‘Lunartics’ and the Winston, surprisingly, is hosting something called ‘Saturday Night Fever’.
- The Anti Retro Vinyls are launching their new album at Live the Venue on Saturday night at 8pm
- Mooki Noodle in Glenwood is hosting a photo exhibit by Andrew Collier who is a SANSA (the SA Space Agency) physicist.
