A Guy Thing


We think itís time to bury ourselves under the covers, curl up into a little cosy ball and hibernate like grizzlies. Whoís with us? This chilly mid-year slump is the pits (trust us, we know), but itís nothing a quick winter break canít fix. Whatís better than getting away, sleeping in and spending time with your ďcubsĒ? Nothing. Seriously, just do it. You deserve it.

Speaking of the cubs, school holidays are fast approaching and surely you need something to counter their boredom. Cue The Wonderful World of Disney On Ice! This heart-warming experience is returning to Joburg between 30 June and 09 July 2017, exciting kids with performances by their favourite Disney characters in this brand-new show. Also, donít miss their special family value packages Ė they're a steal.


But before the holiday madness begins, letís not forget that Fatherís Day is this weekend. So, get him a ticket to A Guy Thing taking place at Montecasino from 16 to 18 June 2017. Itís going to be the ultimate man event filled with nifty gadgets, tasty grub, craft beer, gaming stuff and more. Also, catch all the rugby action on the big screen at 17:00 as The Boks take on France. Plus, we have 5 double tickets to give away! Enter here.

Hereís a great idea for your winter break or Fatherís Day adventure Ė how about a camping trip? We hear that winter is the best time for trout fishing.
