    Eeeek so hard to decide…. I love chocolate and coffee both so much, they go together like Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire….. if I had to choose I would have to say I’m probably more of a coffee-aholic.

    Well as a ballet teacher Im always ‘on the go’ and one thing that always gives me that little ‘extra’ when my energy reserves are low is “CHOCOLATE” !
    My late mom a professional dancer was responsible for teaching me this trick….always standing by when I was dancing competitively with the trusty chocolate bar close by…thank you Mom. Coffee is just the best compliment for chocolate and the two together are ….’a marriage made in heaven!’.
    If I win these tickets I will be taking my amazing cousin Dawn Wallenkamp and we will have Mom with us in spirit (her aunt!!). What a memorable day it will be.
    Thank you for offering this prize it really is AWESOME..
    just hope my name is on those tickets…holding thumbs…

    I am most DEFINITELY a full blown choca-coffee-holic. I cannot go without chocolate OR coffee in my life. Dipping my dark or milk chocolate in my hot, fragant mug of coffee is my favourite chill-out treat. My day has not started until the aromas of freshly made coffee start wafting around the house and awaken my mind and even my soul. All who know me know how much I LOVE and appreciate my chocolate and my coffee. I would be in absolute paradise at the expo, completely in my element and satisfied to a “C” 😉

  26. Eve Morris

    16 Apr 2015 at 10:29 am

    I love chocolate, and coffee…. for me, they are both mediums to be used to create art, as well as remedies to help with the harsh realities of everyday existence. I would love to go to this expo.

    16 Apr 2015 at 12:12 pm

    I’m a confirmed choca-coffee-holic! Mix coffee and chocolate together and you have a match made in heaven! I live by the credo that life’s too short to drink a bad cup of coffee or eat second-rate chocolate! I’ll be going to the Expo, whether I win tickets or not!

    I am definitely a chocoholic! I can’t go to the shops without buying a chocolate. My weakness is dark chocolate, although I don’t discriminate! Milk chocolate, nutty chocolate, truffles, chilli chocolate; it’s all good! Chocolate is especially good with a cuppuccino.

    Not to mention, the expo falls on the first weekend of my birthday month! What a brilliant way to start it off.

  37. Niksha Hiraman

    16 Apr 2015 at 4:40 pm

    Firstly, I’m female so to protect my sanity, I obviously love chocolate. It’s my favourite food group.
    Secondly, I’m female so to protect everyone else’s sanity, I love coffee.

    That said, it all depends on the time of day as to which one I love more.

    Hi. My name is Roxane, and I’m an addict. I’ve had a chocolate every day since I was in school. In 28 now. If I miss a day of chocolate I’m sure to eat two the next day. This is not a joke to win tickets, this is s true story. So pick me. Chose me. Love me

  43. Charlotte

    17 Apr 2015 at 4:52 am

    I love both equally, it’s hard to decide on which one I love more. I am a mother to a two month old baby and without coffee I don’t think I would be able to function properly and chocolate is my friend to comfort me when I’m down. I would love to go and experience all the different flavors and have fun while indulging in my two favorite things.

    For just over 20 years, my husband could not have coffee or chocolate as it gave him migraines… Since he’s changed from chronic to herbal meds, these allergies have disappeared 😀 I think the poor guy deserves to finally see and taste what he’s been missing out on for 20 years!!!

  46. Xoliswa Ndwandwe

    I can’t even start my day unless I start with a large, warm mug of steaming coffee.
    Overindulge is my middle name, nothing could beat the aroma and taste of a good creamy cup of coffee! I’m defiantly a coffee-aholic. I would love to go to the Coffee & Chocolate Expo as i live with a chocaholic and it would be the perfect opportunity for us to share both our passions with each other.

    I am on a tight budget this month but would so love to spoil myself at the Coffee and Choclate Expo at Suncoast. I am a coffee and choclate addict who uses any excuse to indulge in my favourite coffee and choclates. I try to be good but a gal got to do what a gal got to do and thats to indulge in the guilty pleasures of coffee and choclates. So yes please would love tickets for coffee and choclate expo at Suncoast 🙂

  54. Cathy Badenhorst

    17 Apr 2015 at 10:39 pm

  57. Lisa

    19 Apr 2015 at 5:28 pm

    I’m super crazy about chocolate and coffee. It’s what keeps me going everyday. Having an expo for both of the things I love sounds like I’ve died and gone to heaven (Or going to soon enough :p). I’m super keen to see what I can learn about both coffee and chocolate at the expo. Can’t wait! XD

  58. Lynette Lombaard

    20 Apr 2015 at 10:50 am

    I do believe I am the worlds greatest chocoholic 🙂 Nothing goes better than coffee, chocolate and a good movie 🙂 My day starts off with freshly brewed beans to awaken and liven up myself and then around 10am, a little bit of choc (a little brick of lindt, or two, or three). I am addicted to having one slab a day! I would be the happiest girl to find myself at the coffee and chocolate expo this year <3

    The love of chocolate and coffee are one of life’s greatest pleasure , whether I’m in love and receiving a delicious box of pure temptation with its silky satisfaction or baking a cake for a friend chocolate is deeply stemed in my heart. My love of coffee leaves me roasting and grinding every day, with its attractive aroma , we need no alarm bells in my house. A cuppa with a whip of foam and sprinkle of coco gets every day going. My love of coffee and chocolate alone or combined isn’t just a love, it’s purely a way of ĺife♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡

WIN: Sundowners at Chambers Club and the KZNPO Symphony Season Concert



As a stylish leap year treat, Urban Lime and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra are offering an elegant Thursday evening out for one lucky couple: after-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and two tickets to the final KZNPO Symphony Season concert in Durban City Hall, on Thursday 5 March at 7.30pm.

To enter – answer the below TWO questions in the comment section of our Facebook post:

  1. Who’s giant 600sqm. portrait hangs alongside the Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank building) in Anton Lembede St?
  2. Where are the KZNPO Summer Season Symphony concerts being performed?
Std. T&C’s apply

Chambers Club, South Africa’s newest members’ club, is housed in Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank head office). It is a members’ club for South Africa and Africa’s business and professional community located in the iconic Professional Quarter in the heart of the city, which is open to the public on evenings and weekends.

The beautiful building was designed by famed architect Norman Eaton in central Durban which has been transformed into a professional quarter for the legal fraternity, business community, entrepreneurs and creatives as part of an extensive city-wide project by the visionary team from Urban Lime.

One of the special features of the Chambers Club is a beautiful rooftop garden which overlooks the city – with commissioned sculptures, a water feature, quinine trees, indigenous grasses and aloes. This carefully created space is an eventual realisation of what Norman Eaton originally wished for – a tranquil roof top garden which is ideal for an after-work alfresco sundowner to meet colleagues and friends before heading home.

The Club offers facilities geared for legal practioners and businesspeople: meeting rooms, interview rooms, board rooms, restaurant, bar, lounge, parking facilities and cloakroom. It is perfect for professionals and those looking for an elegant, safe quiet place to meet, work and dine in the middle of town.

Win an elegant evening out: After-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and a KZNPO symphony season concert in Durban City Hall

The KZN Philharmonic perform two Beethoven favourites, the Leonore Overture No 1 and the Triple Concerto, played by pianist, Malcolm Nay, violinist Tai Murray and KZNPO’s very own cellist Aristide du Plessis. The evening closes with a performance of Bizet’s delightful Symphony in C – all under the baton of Netherlands born conductor Arjan Tien who makes a popular return to round off the season on 5 March.

Pieter Dirk Uys and Evita Bezuidenhout: #HeTwo



The Hexagon, Pietermaritzburg: 14 – 16 November

Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, Durban: 18 – 24 November


“It’s a class act … the evergreen Uys always manages to inject something fresh and relevant into his work. A great show and a wonderful tribute to one gutsy lady created by one of South Africa’s true sons of the soil.” Peter Feldman ARTSLINK 2.8.2019

 “That both PDU and Tannie Evita will have you giggling at #HeTwo while banishing the troubles of the outside world is a no brainer.” Diane de Beer DEBEER NECESSITIES 31.7.2019

 “Uys dons false eyelashes and presidents listen.” L.A. TIMES


“You better watch out, you better not lie, you better not pout, I am telling you why- #HeTwo is coming to town!” Pieter-Dirk Uys and Evita “face off” on stage together for the first time ever in South African history, #HeTwo comes to The Hexagon Theatre from 14 – 16 November and then heads to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 18 – 24 November.


Visit our Facebook page to enter to win 1 set of 5 double tickets!

Tickets valid for Tuesday 19th November @ the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre ONLY!

Show starts @ 19h30 sharp! Std. T&C’s apply.

In 1981 a woman appeared out of the dressing room of the Market Theatre, stepped onto the stage and smiled. Virtually before she even gave her name, she was a legend. Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout was presented to the audience, the nation and the world. She is still going stronger than ever. No longer a recognised Nationalist as she was during those years of apartheid rule, she is now a member of the African National Congress, secure in her Luthuli House kitchen where she cooks for reconciliation. For nearly forty years she has had to tolerate the impersonation of her by a local actor. She tried to sue him for libel; she swore never to allow him into her life and yet, now in the 25th year of her democracy, she will be on the stage with Pieter-Dirk Uys at the same time.

The question to PDU was always: why this female character of Evita? There are many answers. When he started impersonating her in 1978, it was illegal to have an opinion about anything political, so maybe an Afrikaans woman with an NP husband could spill the beans. The fact that she was portrayed by a man dressed as a woman when cross-dressing was also illegal, could force the edge of the envelope. Or maybe that she was there for only one reason: to eventually make Nelson Mandela laugh. And she did. They met and he laughed. She also embraced Archbishop Desmond Tutu who also laughed. She posed with countless legends and South Africans, black and white, laughed – with relief.

Evita Bezuidenhout will always be ten years older than Pieter-Dirk Uys. He seems to be catching up. His Darling venue, Evita se Perron, has been going for 23 years, established as a recognised international tourist destination and local satirical Stonehenge. Who would have thought that Tannie Evita would become a farce to be reckoned with, to be hailed and celebrated as the most famous white woman in South Africa? And now as a member of the ANC, sharing her weekly comments on YouTube and Daily Maverick about the state of her nation, where her Evita’s Free Speech, now past its 200th episode, has gathered supporters from all the corners of the globe? Her 140,000 Twitter followers are not just, as she thinks, in the same prison outside Rustenburg.

Now in 2019, for the first time, she and her ageing impersonator will confront each other face to face.

There can only be one winner.

#HeTwo will perform in Pietermaritzburg at the Hexagon from 14 to 16 November (Book at Webtickets) and in Durban at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 18 to 24 November (Book at Computicket).
