Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
Can we get a do-over, please? We weren’t ready! We just blinked and the entire four-day weekend disappeared, just like that, without any warning. We were too busy hunting for Easter Eggs and making precious memories - and need another weekend just to recover! Oh well, not to worry, we’ve got two more public holidays coming up in the next few weeks. These are the perfect excuse to explore the city a little more, inside out.
It might be nippy outside, but Emerald Resort & Casino is keeping the chill at bay with their Autumn lineup. From a food and gin pairing and unmissable accommodation deals, to One Night with Mi Casa, Shimza and Lady Zamar. Get all the info here. 
Get winter-ready with Edgars Home’s amazing deals on bedroom and bathroom basics. You can expect every day low deals, online and in store, that’ll certainly keep the chill at bay. Click here to shop now.

For a day out in the city like no other, don’t miss the thrilling Gins ‘N Roses Festival at Turffontein Racecourse on 04 May. You can expect a day filled with exciting horse racing, awesome entertainment, and of course, your choice of gin from 20 different brands who will be showcasing their very best on the day. And don’t forget to take a selfie at the beautiful rose wall. Get your tickets here.

April is soon coming to an end, which only means one thing - a brand-new month is on the horizon, bringing us even more things to do in the city. May is going to be epic! Why? Well, it’s jam-packed with loads of must sees, dos and experiences perfect for all ages. Here’s a few of our favourite May musts. 

And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:
