Hitting a six, winning the Super Rugby and finishing first in whatever you attempt, we’re all about reaching new heights. It’s on this note that we tip our hat to you and extend a high five. This is our 600th newsletter and to celebrate we’re thanking you, all of our readers, for your support.

Another thing to celebrate is the Rand Show, which turns 123 years old this year. Here you can experience great food, awesome entertainment and shopping for days. Do yourself a favour and check it out this time around - it’s sure to be a special time out for the whole family.

To mark the milestone, here's a pretty cool thank you from our commander-in-chief and all-round cool guy, Ryan Sessel. Late nights and early mornings are how we’ve come to celebrate issue number 600 with you. Here’s another high five. Check it. We’re also reintroducing Joburg’s Choice, where you can choose your favourite spots in town by taking part in a poll.

And something to take advantage of now are the April Holidays. Why not spend the holidays in uber-trendy Illovo, Johannesburg at the Protea Hotel by Marriott Wanderers. Grab a tasty lunch at their infamous Big Apple Restaurant, or head to African Pride Melrose Arch Hotel for one of their beyond amazing cocktails.
