    Best ways to support restaurants and wine farms during COVID-19

    COVID-19 has had a devastating impact on the hospitality industry. But restaurants and wine farms have successfully campaigned against the extended lockdown and alcohol ban, and are now able to offer sit-down meals served with the perfect drinks. So, if you’re up for it, now’s a great time to eat out, especially with all the special deals for Restaurant Week. You can also support restaurants and wine farms from home by writing online reviews, placing orders for delivery, and making a contribution to the Eat Out Restaurant Relief Fund.

    Best ways to fight COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) in Cape Town

    Best ways to fight COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) in Cape Town

    This episode covers Monday 30 March to Sunday 5 April 2020. To contain the spread of COVD-19 (coronavirus disease) the South African government has declared a nationwide three-week lockdown. This means that all shops and businesses are closed (except those providing essential services) and that you cannot leave your home (except under strictly controlled circumstances). But there is hope! Not only has the National Arts Festival announced plans to go completely virtual, but many restaurants (and companies like Dial-a-Picnic) are now offering home delivery, much like many estates (and brands like Frost Popsicles) have special deals on wine. And while our podcast will be taking a break until we can promote events again, Cape Town’s beauty isn’t going away anytime soon. Take care and stay safe!
