Performing For A Purpose @ Baran’s

Baran’s Theatre Restaurant will be hosting a night of music and dance, with a purpose. Proceeds from the evening will be donated to four of Cape Town's very own South African Dance Champions.

Wiaan Laing, Tiffany Joy Sissing, Antoinette De Villiers and Tiana Smit of the Rhapsody Dance Centre have qualified to represent South Africa at the World Championships for Performing Arts in Los Angeles in June & July 2017. Unfortunately, they have to carry the costs of entry, travel and accommodation on their own.

In the spirit of community, the event aims to spread the love of dance and the performing arts, and raise funds to help lighten their load. The evening will include performances by each of the multi-talented dancers, as well as a few talented singers. There will also be spot prizes for lucky audience members.

Located in the vibrant Greenmarket Square, Baran’s Kurdish Restaurant, Theatre and Shisha Lounge is well-known for hosting a variety of dynamic dinner theatre events. Drinks and delicious authentic Mediterranean eats will be available throughout the evening.

Sharing Sundays at Gabriëlskloof

When the celebrated restaurant at Gabriëlskloof Estate, situated outside Bot River, launched its winter Sharing Sundays last year, it unleashed a sensation. This year in addition to exciting changes, the darling menu format of gastronomes-in-the-know returns, now in a truly French tradition.

Sharing Sundays is about shareable cuisine in the nostalgic tone of a traditional family feast.

Embracing his inner Francophile this season, Chef Frans Groenewald has “gone French”, and specifically: French Farmstyle. Think cooking that is wholesome and bounteous; rich and saucy; flavourful and colourful; opulent and infinitely gratifying – this is comfort food done magnifique. It is food to be enjoyed together.

Venue: Gabriëlskloof Estate

Dates: May 2017 – August 2017

Tickets: R300
