There!

We’ve said it before, but we don’t say it enough: You guys frikkin’ rock. Most people would complain endlessly about having to get up at the crack of noon to write gaming news. Not us though? Because we love you guys. And behind the monitors, you’re all rad to each other as well. Here’s where you Capetonians can meet up and talk about your flat mountain.

The Banana Jam Cafe will be the venue to be at on October 5. Located at 157 2nd Avenue Harfield Village Kenilworth, the restaurant describes itself as a “vibrant Caribbean restaurant has a breezy, tropical atmosphere”. Also, you can drink Pina Coladas, and get caught in the rain since it’s Cape Town.

I honestly wish that I could be there to see you fellas, but I’ll be most likely be almost dead after trooping around at rAge on that day. Hope you all have a rad time!

  1. Read the venue as Banana Jim Cafe…clearly spending too much time reading the Lazygamer comments 🙂

    I will be there! Banana Jam is just down the road from my work, and pretty close to where I stay. Gonna be awesome to meet the fellow LGers. 🙂

    Gonna be shweet! 🙂
