Good tunes out at the Coffee & Chocolate Festival Cape Town 2017

One thing I was looking forward to at the Coffee & Chocolate Festival Cape Town 2017 was the live music. I’m not sure if I’m just really out of the loop (which I think is probably the case) but Cape Town’s live music scene doesn’t seem as buzzing as Joburg’s, so I was keen to see what these Cape Town peeps had to offer. The … Continue reading Good tunes out at the Coffee & Chocolate Festival Cape Town 2017

Coffee and Chocolate Festival Cape Town 2017… disappointing!

Hanging With Leanne… is feeling annoyed at the SA on Tap Craft Beer, Food and Music Festival
