As a mom, the chances of you feeling like you could do with a little bit of down time is  about as high as the chance of you actually getting out the house for a Girl’s Night. Because let’s face it, do we ever put ourselves first?  Do we ever actually get to those monthly girl’s nights out like we say we will prioritise ? Do we see the friends we think about constantly and swear we are going to make more time for? NO. Because life gets in the way, we spend all our moola on our children and feel guilty that we are not there to tuck little Sally and Henry in their beds every. single. night of the week.  Like we would be the worst mom in the world if, heaven forbid, they had to rely on dad or a babysitter!

Well I’m here to tell you that, that needs to change and remind you that we deserve an afternoon/night off once in a while. We need moments in between the madness of raising kids to remind ourselves of who we were before they came along and that it’s OKAY to have fun. I’m also here to tell you about a RAD event where you can do just that. AND I’m giving away two sets of DOUBLE tickets for you and a friend to go get your chill on and spend the afternoon together! Sound like heaven? Then you are going to want to hear about the Afternoon High GnT at Shimmy Beach Club!

What is it all about?

21 September 2016, CAPE TOWN – An afternoon of gin, delicious treats, entertainment and spring sunshine awaits at the Shimmy Beach Club’s Afternoon High GnT. Taking place on Thursday 20 October 2016, the opulent afternoon will be presented in grand VIP style at Cape Town’s hottest lifestyle destination. Guests can expect a mouth-watering high tea style buffet, specially curated by the restaurant’s Executive Chef, Adrian Cook; as well as a jam packed line up of entertainment.

Taste, swirl and celebrate the most exciting, fastest growing spirit category in the world whilst indulging on high tea treats. In addition, the High GnT is a blend of a classic high tea experience with a professionally delivered gin tasting as well as cocktails. Entertainment will be provided by Lee Rath, a vivacious triple threat specialist and entertainer who will bring with her warmth, style, charisma and professional creative value. Mentalist, illusionist and mentalist, Larry Soffer, will also be inspiring the ladies attending to ‘Believe to See’ instead of ‘Seeing to Believe.’
