At a loss what to do this weekend, based on the weather it’s best to plan something outdoorsy for Saturday, for rain is expected on Sunday.

So perhaps take the advice of www.capetown.travel, who suggest that the top 5 things to do in the city this weekend are:

Cape Town Golf Festival

Take part in Mother City’s second Golf Festival. The week-long event will be held on four courses: Metropolitan, Milnerton, Royal Cape, and Westlake. Your festival package includes 12 golf balls, four rounds of golf, prize giving every day, a prize giving gala dinner, the opening cocktail function, and four wine-tastings.

Wine Concepts – The Grape Escape Wine Festival

Wine Concepts are excited to host the first Grape Escape Wine Festival this weekend. At the festival, they will be showcasing a fine selection of wines from all over the Winelands. Wine lovers will have the opportunity to taste 40 of the country’s top producers. Delicious snacks will be served with the wines throughout the course of the evening.

Zip Zap presents Journey Beyond

Zip Zap brings a new life to the circus, with incredible artists ready to thrill audiences young and old. No more dancing dogs, big tops, and drum rolls. The Zip Zap cast is reaching its peak of classical entertainment, with artists painting with their bodies and defying gravity.

A Midsummer’s Night Dream

This year Rustenburg Girls’ High School and Rondebosch Boys’ High School present a collaborative interpretation of Shakespeare’s, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in the newly refurbished Memorial Hall of Rondebosch Boys’ High School. This is fitting in so many ways; perhaps most appropriately because the two great schools now also share a Senior Dramatic Arts Department. 

Alessandro Taverna Piano Recital at the Baxter Theatre

Alessandro Taverna’s music stimulates the senses as does his nature Venice and gives rise to a feeling of wonderment. Catch him at the Baxter this weekend.

The wonderful thing about life is that there is always a choice, so perhaps www.capetownmagazine's top 7 things to do this weekend is more up your alley:

Fresh Fades On A Friday

Meet, mingle and get made over by some of the most talented barbers in town at this event dedicated to the trendy fade cut. It's a day of celebrating the most classic of all haircuts, the fade. Head down to The Palms Décor and Lifestyle Centre in Woodstock for an afternoon of grooming and mingling with the most authentic barbers around town. It's probably too late to get yourself groomed, but it's worth a mental note for next Friday.

Xplore Tours (Friday afternoon to Sunday morning)

Explore the wonder and beauty of the Garden Route with Xplore Cape Town as they take locals and foreigners alike on an exciting road trip tour.

The Chocolate Festival (Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon)

This Willy Wonka-themed event has got a lot more than the average chocolate bar on offer. Expect chocolate fountains, themed movie screenings, ice-cream vendors and more at The Chocolate Festival.  

Downdogs and Dinner (Saturday evening)

Get your evening yoga class and dinner in one with this experience catering for yoga, food and wine-lovers with Downdogs and Dinner.

Marimba Jam Festival (Saturday morning)

Schools from across the Western Cape will participate in this year’s festival, where percussion-lovers come together to celebrate this unique instrument at the Marimba Jam Festival.

Sip & Shop at Nom Nom (Saturday afternoon to evening)

Nom Nom Eatery in Somerset West invites all the wonderful women to join them for a day of intimate shopping, sipping wine and celebrating everything it means to be a modern woman at the Sip & Shop.

Shakespeare In Love at The Fugard (Friday to Sunday evening)

If you missed the award-winning South African production of Shakespeare In Love the last time it was performed live at the Fugard Theatre, here’s your chance to catch it.
If that doesn’t tickle your fancy and you need to destress, then why not have your funnybone tickled at the Cape Town Comedy Club at the Waterfront, where they have various comedians performing from Wednesday to Sunday.
