Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
Emerald Resort & Casino

And March has started off with a bang - we couldn’t wait to see who wore what at the Oscars (how stunning were Margot Robbie and Lupita Nyong’o?); the weather is rapidly changing (hence the crazy hail storm on Sunday afternoon); and of course those moreish marshmallow Easter eggs are calling our name. Oh, how we love March.

Family Easter Fun
Emerald Resort & Casino is determined to be THE Easter destination of choice in 2018 - and they’re going ALL out with Gourmet Easter Milkshakes, kiddies’ beach sports, Easter Egg hunts, photos with the Easter Bunny, comedy magic show and so much more.
Shopping for teens can be one heck of a daunting job. Not to worry though. We’re giving away two teen apparel hampers to the valued of R 2500 each, filled with trendy clothing from Jordan Kids, Nike Kids and Converse Kids. Enter here now.

It gets better. We all know Sweet from Heaven has been around for decades, bringing us moreish treats and happy memories. And now, your favourite treats can be enjoyed on the go with deliciously tasty snack sized pre packs. Yummy. Plus, there’s a sweet hamper up for grabs this week - click here to see what’s inside (and to enter.)


If “Mediterr-Asian” food is your thing, then we suggest making your way to Mezepoli in Melrose Arch. This go-to Meze and Wine Bar hangout in the north offers urban dining on-the-go, or laid back meals for those keen to kick back and linger for a while. Read what Shawn, our resident foodie, had to say about his last visit.
