We’re in September and you know that means that the Christmas decorations are just about to hit the stores. Jokes, not really, but soon enough the eager Christmas capitals will be back to make us spend our hard-earned cash. I sound like the Grinch huh? Quite the opposite actually. I like the festive season and here’s something you can look forward to coming in December.
The inaugural Pick n Pay Taste of Christmas is set to take place on the 7th to the 9th of December at the Coca-Cola Dome, Northgate, Johannesburg. The event will feature carefully selected restaurants, which will be serving up some Christmas inspired dishes and handing out some useful tips ahead of the big day.
On announcing the festival, Taste Festivals Director Justine Drake said, “Pick n Pay Taste of Christmas is a celebration of the festive season combining the best of the holidays with oodles of eating, drinking and shopping, a dash of old fashioned goodwill and loads of Christmas cheer.”
So just to recap, the festival takes place from 7-9 December 2012 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Jozi! Tickets are priced from R80 and include a tasting glass. You can get your tickets by visting www.tasteofchristmas.co.za or www.itickets.co.za.
