I know I am late getting this news off to you but October was a little on the crazy side and November is fast catching up. Although we don’t have as many events lined up for you this month we still have a few really good evenings planned. Oh my word, October was HUGE. A jam packed month full of really amazing people and events. I should just about have moved my bed in the Indulgence Cafe I spent so much time here
The October events were really wonderful, everything from the Fantasy and Horror Festival to the Pieter Dirk Uys breakfast and all the stuff in between was really entertaining and a whole bunch of fun
I hope that you at least managed to get to one of the events here
15 Minutes of Fame …….
The craft Beer Tasting with Jonathan from Three Skulls was interesting, there were some fun characters here which made for a really enjoyable evening with a dash of colour.
Quiz dinner is always a lot of fun and you get to realize quite how much you don’t know about the stuff around you. One of the most fun and interactive evenings of the lot was the First Annual Horror and Fantasy evening. Great, great fun. I have dedicated an entire blog post to it, see the link below.
Pieter Dirk Uys is and always will be the consummate performer and without a doubt he has his audience eating out the palm of his hand. He was here for breakfast and to chat about his book, Panorama which came out in July. My copy is still sitting on my desk but I intend getting to it soon now that I have Gareth Crocker’s Finding Jack, out of the way. If you need to read a delightful book, are an animal lover and need a bit of a cry, that is the book to read!
Our Lee Marcus event was also superb. What an incredible woman she is. At 92 she was having a smoke and a whiskey at the table whilst signing books. I loved this lady and have asked her to adopt me as a grandchild. She agreed very reluctantly and only after I had lit her cigarette for her! My bad!
We rounded off the Halloween Month with a Halloween Dinner evening that was very nicely supported and where the burgers all sported some rather unusual ingredients……………Happy Halloween it was!
The Twisted Market was a great success this time around, the rain held off until the evening which was awesome and we had an event onsite that you wouldn’t normally see in a public forum. Two girls with hooks in their backs pulling against each other. Sorry no pics are available and to see such a thing you really need to pop into the next market which is happening in December.
Other pics from the market tho:

I am hoping to line up an author for the evening but I haven’t as yet got anyone booked, watch this space
I have included the December Calendar but I have yet to give you any details about it. Trust me when I say there are one or two very exciting things happening here during the month of December. Jozi may be a little quiet and a little empty but we have things lined up to keep you entertained!
Have an awesome November and we cannot wait to see you soon
