Hi,

Itís almost time to chase the Easter bunny and score some chocolate. Thatís what weíre all about: eating chocolate Ė not so much chasing rabbits. Either way, letís cut to the thrill of the chase and show you whatís happening in the City of Gold this week.

With that said, Great Moscow Circus will be ending their South African tour at Carnival City during the Easter school holidays and are offering 50% off all tickets for weekday shows. Yes, the show is returning to Johannesburg for 10 days only, so secure your tickets at this unbelievable discount for such an incredible show. This is one show you cannot miss.

Another thing we need to tell you is that going local is lekker. And that doesnít apply to only our fashion and food, but also to our flowers! Which is why SA Florist has partnered with local florists to create opportunities and open new doors, offering them a great place to showcase their floral and artisanal talent. Here are 5 reasons to support local florists like Ellen.

Keep it local and go offline this Easter at Protea Hotels by Marriott. With up to 25% off your long weekend you can share the experience with your whole family at Protea Hotel by Marriott O.R. Tambo Airport or head to Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! By Marriott Melrose Arch for a glamorous old Hollywood experience. This calls for a much-needed break!

Speaking of having it all, if youíve got the appetite of an elephant but arenít too sure where to dine on Easter Sunday, check out our favourite buffet spots to enjoy Easter lunch. Weíre talking succulent roasts, appetising desserts and everything in between. Yip, our mouths are watering too...


And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:

1. Get your suds on at the Sandton Craft Beer Fair on Saturday.

2. Tighten your tekkies and jog to the Hollard Daredevil Run, which jumps off this Friday.

3. Grab the kids and check out the Popís Toys Lego Expo this weekend.

4. Everybody likes a good G ín T, so get your fill this Sunday at the Gin Foraging Festival.

5. For a good cause, show off your stamina at the Earth Hour Trail Run/Walk taking place on Saturday.

Have a super week,

PS. Velocity Media is hiring. Check out the amazing job opportunities available.
