Kids, every now and again, when the horrors of online dating got too much for me, I’d pack up my bags and hot foot it to another city to clear my head. Johannesburg, or Jozi as it is affectionately known, and a visit with your godfather Leon beckoned in March 2017…
In celebration of Lee’s 29th (again, haha) birthday and so that I could be his personal photographer all weekend long, we sampled all of the city’s ample delights including:
Your Spirit Mom Leo and I have been to the Cape Town branch of Beefcakes so often, we have our designated table so it was only right for me to pay the JHB restaurant a visit too…
And boy, was I delighted with their considerable, uh, assets:
Adonis sightseeing aside, the Illovo site has a top-notch line-up of performers, including the Menopause drag trio and it was so worth a fun night out!
Leon says that hipsters pretty much visit the Neighbourgoods Market in Jozi to take selfies and post them to Instagram…I’m inclined to agree:
Thrilling theatre shows:
My imaginary love affair with the hot AF theatre legend Jonathan Roxmouth was well documented on social media and so I just couldn’t miss the opportunity to watch him again in the local production of the iconic musical, West Side Story.
To 2017, my favourite Tony has my heart:
I missed your godfather terribly but visiting each other was always a great treat:
"Tonight, Tonight/It all began tonight/I saw you/And the world went away…" Time was when musicals and dates with my @leeyon_j were a three times a week thing.Now, we board flights to each other's cities and book our show tickets months in advance. Still, I am SO excited to relive the magic of #westsidestorysa with my Plus One 😍 #CTGirlinJHB
Travelling solo to New York had reawakened my wanderlust and I was looking forward to exploring my country and the world in 2017.
The dating adventures continue in the next How I Met Your Father story…
