A native of Uruguay, Oscar came to South Africa as a young boy. He quickly developed an affinity towards South African culture yet even with this newfound love, he longed for his mother’s homemade recipes. Oscar began recreating these recipes and having perfected them, he was introduced to Bernardo, an Argentinian who’d come to South Africa four years prior. Their meeting grew into a empanada stand at the Neighbourgoods Market, and soon the menu was growing too. After earning their reputation in the market business, they decided to make the move into a space of their own. Thus, Che Argentine Grill was born.

Now in 2016, having been open for more than a year, they have been voted as the best steakhouse in Gauteng by the Eat Out awards. We’d like to congratulate them on their win, a well-deserved one indeed. From the beautifully cosy interior to the delicious food and drinks, the Che experience is certainly one to behold. Do yourself a favour and sample something off their grill soon.





Nondumiso Lwazi Msimanga and Jenny Nijenhuis are two artists on a mission to start a very public and open dialogue during 16 Days of Activism about what rape in South Africa looks like.

Their collaboration will see 3600 pairs of used underwear hung on 1.2 kilometres of washing line in the streets of Maboneng, and where the line ends at SoMa Art + Space, Nondumiso will perform On the Line, a meditation in a wedding dress made of panties. They are requesting underwear donations for the installation as well as new underwear for various rape crisis organisations.

SoMa Art + Space has also put out an open call for works that observe, reflect and comment on what the rape crisis in South Africa looks like. The launch will take place on the 24th of November and the exhibition will run through to the 4th of December.





A basket of eats, a secret rooftop picnic spot and a short talk from a guest speaker. If this sounds like a night well spent, be sure to meet at Summer Night Market at Common Ground next Friday for the starting point of this wonderful experience. You will be provided with a picnic basket containing utensils and a blanket on arrival which you can then fill up with delicious treats from Market On Main at your own cost. Once you’ve stocked up for your spread, a shuttle will take you to the picnic spot where the guest speaker will tell you about the city from their perspective. This fun-filled evening costs R250pp and you can call 011 614 0163 for more info or click below.
