Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
We’re dubbing July Sports Month! We’re feeling in tip-top shape watching all these sweaty men running around the soccer field in Russia (while we’re over here, with a G&T in one hand and a bucket of KFC in the other). Can you relate? We're amped... bring on the action!
Tonight is the FIFA World Cup semi-finals and then we’re onto the moment we’ve all been waiting for - the final! Catch all the action live on the big screen at the Melrose Arch More Than Soccer Fan Zone on the piazza this weekend.

In case you didn’t know, Saturday the 14th is National Bastille Day and to celebrate, the Fourways Farmers’ Market will be hosting a fabulous day filled with plenty of French flair - The Bastille Day Market! Expect everything from art, fashion and live music to authentic French cuisine and even crisp bubbly. It’s going to be magnifique!

Do you know what we really love about winter? The three Cs: cosy comfort, coffee and, of course, chocolate, especially chocolate we can enjoy guilt-free (winter weight gain sucks!) Cue, Nova Chocolate. It’s sugar- and dairy-free, as well as vegan and diabetic friendly and, best of all, it’s absolutely delicious! We think we’ve just found the perfect treat. Yum!

And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:

Calling all art lovers, it’s that time of year again – the spectacular RMB Turbine Art Fair starts this Thursday and runs until Sunday.
Experience the delectable delights from some of the best food trucks in the business at Food Truck Fridays at The Sands Sandton.

Watch the remainder of the FIFA World Cup 2018 at Queeni's Shebeen this weekend.
Get into the Christmas in July spirit at Casalinga Ristorante’s Xmas in July Vol. 2 this Saturday.
Spend your Sunday afternoon enjoying delicious treats from various food trucks at the Bastille Weekend Picnic In the Park.

Have a great week! See you soon.
