First Thursdays in Cape Town

Last night after an event at the Grand Daddy in Long Street, Kerry and I went to see what First Thursdays are all about.

On the first Thursday of each month, the art galleries and shops in Cape Town open until late.

The vibe was fantastic. Quite a few of the galleries were offering wine.  The restaurants and sidewalks in the area were littered with people standing around chatting and enjoying the incredible evening and the great atmosphere.

First Thursdays to me is like the Moonlight Mass for arty people.

One of my favourite shops were Sam, a market on top of popular La Parada in Bree Street. They sell everything from vintage bikes to jewellery and the beautiful cushions by Room 13.
