Gauteng Getaway Show FlyerShowcasing over 350 exhibits including travel destinations, accommodation, outdoor gear, 4×4 products and accessories, motor homes, caravans and trailers, camping equipment and adventure operators, there is, without doubt, something for everyone. Thrill seekers are going to love the climbing wall and laser shooting in the Adventure Area, and, for the less hardcore visitor there’s the new Travel and Taste Theatre featuring local cuisine, wine and beer; a Wine Village with samples and products to buy; and for the even more mellow, a beer tent where you can relax and listen to upcoming artists perform on the live music stage.

African Beer Emporium Sneak Peek

African Beer Emporium December Sneak Peek
African Beer Emporium – December Sneak Peek

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you’ll probably know how much I love beer, and sometime in December last year I was lucky enough to be invited to check out the African Beer Emporium (ABE) at a sneak peek event. Well… the guys at ABE are doing another sneak peek event and this time you get to go as well (I’m giving away tickets to Saturday’s party a little later on in this post).

ABE is located at 012 MARKET ON MAIN… that is 385 Helen Joseph (Church) Street in Pretoria, and before you all jump up and down about not wanting to visit the Pretoria CBD… I’ve been there a few times now, and they have secure parking and the venue is #NextLevel… there’s no reason for you to avoid it.

In their owns words:

African Beer Emporium (ABE) is an upmarket restaurant/bar which will focus on delivering local and foreign visitors a taste of Africa in an unprecedented way and with exceptional style. We will stock a large variety of African beers and our menu will feature signature dishes from all over the continent. ABE is the brainchild of the creators of Capital Craft and this latest venture is the spearhead of the 012 Central initiative which aims to bring the inner city back to life.

So come on down to African Beer Emporium on the 30th January and check what the fuss is about. Doors open at 10h00, and if it’s anything like the last party, the live bands and DJs are gonna keep you entertained until late into the night. For more info you can check the facebook event: ABE Sneak Peek Event

I mentioned free tickets?

Simply RT the tweet below and on Thursday morning I’ll pick someone at random who is gonna walk away with a double ticket to the party on Saturday. Easy!

Share The Warmth

BraaiBoy Old Brown Sherry

Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean we need to braai any less… It just means we’ll be making bigger fires and standing a little closer.

I’ve also got some awesome news to share with all of you: With the help of Sedgwick’s Old Brown, I’m going to help all of us accomplish exactly that.

Sedgwicks Old Brown Since 1916

A couple of days ago the folks over at Sedgwick’s got in touch and asked me if I’d like a couple of bottles to share with my mates the next time I braaied… well duh, of course! So then I suggested they throw in a couple of prizes and we make it a REAL party… and this is where you come in.

On Thursday, 13th June I’m hosting an Old Brown party at Aandklas, and I’m inviting 30-40 of you guys over, all I ask in return is that you share your best campfire story with us for a YouTube video. Free booze, braaivleis and good times.

BraaiBoy Old Brown SherryHow do you get invited?

1) Find a buddy or 3 willing to join you on camera,
2) Contact me and give me the high-level run-down of your favourite campfire story.
There are no specific requirements, but stories of fluffy dying on your birthday are a bit of a buzz-kill, so please try to keep them happy (or at least funny).

Based on your stories, I’m going to pick +/- 10 teams to join us for the evening at Aandklas in Hatfield (Pretoria) where you will share those stories with us on camera.

I mentioned Prizes?

  • The 4 best videos (as determined by a random set of selection criteria) will be selected on 18th June.
  • Voting will be opened to everyone and the video with the most likes and comments on 21 June @ 12h00 wins R750 cash + R750 product hamper.
  • The video that comes in second wins a R500 product hamper.

Can’t get to Aandklas on Thursday?

No problem… You can create your own video and upload it to YouTube (or Dropbox etc. it to me and I’ll put it onto my channel) before 18th June and still be eligible for the prizes.


Sound like fun? Of course it does – so what are you waiting for? Get in touch and let’s Share The Warmth with Sedgwick’s Old Brown.

BTW: You can connect with Sedgwick’s Old Brown on facebook, and don’t forget: you can connect with me on facebook and twitter as well, or leave a message in the comments section below – Would love to hear from you guys.

Update: Sedgwick’s Old Brown is also giving away 100 bottles to deserving fans. Simply go share your favourite memory with them to enter and Warm up for 2013.
Update 18th: We’ve been going through the footage from the other night’s party at Aandklas, and while making for some very entertaining viewing, the editing process is proving a little more challenging. As a result, we’ll be foregoing the “top 4” process, and all the videos (that we manage to salvage from all the footage) will be uploaded. The voting will open as soon as a video is uploaded and the 2 videos with the most views, likes and comments on 21 June will still be declared the winners.
