Going out is usually the last thing (hard) working folk feel like doing on a Monday night. They’re usually recovering from a busy weekend and have had a rough start to the week (Mondays are Mondays for a reason. Manic Monday, anyone? Wish it were Sunday?) My point exactly.
See, if you think about it, going out on a Monday evening is actually the perfect way to ease into the rest of the week. It gives you time to digest the day you’ve just had and rev your engine for the rest of the week by talking things over with your significant other and seeing things from a fresh perspective if you go somewhere new, and do something beyond your usual four walls, especially if you work from home (been there, done that, got the anxiety pills). To further sweeten the deal, don’t forget that many places in Cape Town offer winter specials to take advantage of!
So that’s exactly what we did last weekend. Below you’ll find the usual breakfast/cappuccino/doggy snaps, but below them you’ll see the gorgeous sunset we witnessed while waiting for our curries to arrive at Inside at Big Bay (Yes, the place we usually go for an excellent value-for-money weekend breakfast). The best bit? All chicken curries are half price on a Monday and Tuesday evening. But best of all? I discovered my new favourite treat ever, a sticky toffee frappe. I can’t describe its sticky toffee goodness to you, you’ll have to get an idea from the picture wayyy down below…
