Who’s your Grand Daddy?

If you became inspired by all our South-Africa posts, and ever want to visit our store in Capetown. (see Capetown Opening).You might want to check out this Hotel for accommodation.

Grand Daddy hotel is definitely not your standard, white on white, hotel. The whole interior of the hotel looks amazing  and especially the trailer park on the roof-top is a conceptual experiment that is a treat for the eyes.6a00d83451aee269e20105370342d0970c-600wi

The rooftop trailer park has 8 different trailers which have all been inspired by various iconic things and decorated completely according to that theme.

Examples are the Dorothy theme (polka dotted room), the John and Yoko theme (with guitar that comes with the trailer) , and the Three Chairs (watch out for that bear!)

The concept was the developed by the people of WHATIFTHEWORLD.

Not convinced enough, well after seeing the pictures in the gallery you will be! We know we are.

Our befriended Neighbours in Capetown

Our lovely BS104 is situated on a location which is special in more ways than one. The church the shop is in has a Dutch history and situates a few very extraordinary stores and hotspots. Amongst which Brewers & Union, a local specialty brewery.

Brewers & Union is not just a Brewery, it is a beer salon, a new concept that combines the passion for beer and a social hotspot. The beer is brewed is organic, but the founders know how to serve a killer espresso to tease your tastebuds just as good.

Brewers & Union is a definite meetingplace in the center of Capetown and certainly a place to have checked out when you are in the neighborhood!

They have their passion for beer so deep grounded they can even tell you why beer, for instance, has less calories than wine and therefore is less likely to be the cause of a beerbelly than wine is.

District 9: Extraterrestials threathing BS 104?

Newflash!: Extraterrestrials have been spotted in South-Africa. Why are they here, what do they want. Should we allow them on our planet? And most importantly; Should we allow them to buy Blue Blood or keep them out of our stores?

Video Link arrival :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlgtbEdqVsk

A corporation named Multi-National United has taken it upon themselves to take ”care” of the Aliens.  They have mapped the area with the aliens.

http://www.multinationalunited.com

Since their arrival several fronts opposing and allowing the residence of the aliens on our planet have formed.

We have discovered the website of a resistance-blogger, who claims that the aliens are being mistreated and that the MNU is spreading lies. http://www.mnuspreadslies.com/

The blog also has the viral video made at the January protests……. LINK
