Things to do for your 30th Birthday in Cape town and Johannesburg

When we turn 30+ sometimes doing a club scene or a place where loud music is involved is not always what we had in mind…(which never seemed to be an issue in our 20’s). So as we move into this new phase of our lives, with our friends…we sometimes run out of fun ideas to celebrate a special occasion. Here is what we came up with:


Cape town

Dinner at Col Cacchio Pizzeria
