This month we put up a page for
Sloane Square, the neighbourhood shopping centre at 18 Sloane
Street, corner William Nicol Drive, Bryanston. The centre has a
mix of shops including a supermarket and a bottle store, an upmarket
Indian restaurant (The Maharajah, one of our favourites), an evangelical
fruit and veg shop, and several fast food outlets. It is almost fully
tenanted with long-term tenants, in contrast to the centre directly
Epsom Downs, which now has several empty shops as listed below.
Alongside the construction of the new Checkers, the rest of Rivonia
Village is also being renovated. Shops continue trading, but a lot
of the centre looks like a building site. Renovation of Mutual
Mews opposite has finished with the installation of a new Tiger Wheel

August and 2 September 2013. - Massive discounts at all stores - Spot
prizes for customers including gift vouchers to the value of over R5000

"We had a great time at Chislehurst for our
Baby Shower - we were spoilt for fun and good food", said Lolo Bingwa.
20 ladies arrived laden with gifts for the mum-to-be, Lolo's sister.
After a delicious brunch, champagne and cake accompanied toasts and lots
of laughter. Choose Chislehurst for your next event, under the
lapa and around the pool. Book clubs, kitchen teas, boardroom lunches
and birthday celebrations, we can assure you of a good time in a secure,
private, pretty and peaceful environment.

*** Adega Rivonia, Rivonia Crossing 2, off Achter Road, Paulshof - 23 August 2013
This restaurant replaces an earlier steak restaurant that closed some time
ago. We had not booked, but this was no barrier to entry and we were greeted by the manageress and assured that
a table could be found. We were seated towards the back and immediately
attended to by Kenneth, who gave us menus and the wine list. Wines are
reasonably priced from around R89 for Festa Sauvignon Blanc upwards. The
range is good. Not having tried Fest Sauvignon Blanc, I decided on that.
It turned out to be a very pleasant experience. My companion stuck firmly
He also decided on Spare Ribs, much missed as we haven't really been to meat
restaurants very often. I ordered snails in garlic butter and Prawn
Tempura. The ribs were declared very good but the chips failed the really
crispy test. My snails were excellent and probably protected us from
marauding vampires for the next two nights at least! The prawn tempura
batter was a disappointment being rather thick and, I suspect, not made from
rice flour. The prawns themselves were good.
Kenneth gave excellent service and the atmosphere was easy going.
Children are allowed and they were all behaving well. We would go again
and recommend Adega Rivonia to others.
Editor's niggle: It was an interesting idea for Adega to produce
its menu as a glossy magazine priced at R50, but I object to it carrying
adverts for luxury goods and travel. If I'm paying to go to the
restaurant I don't expect it to sell me as a captive audience to
advertise to, unless I'm getting my meal free. And Adega is a
Portuguese restaurant, right? So what are we doing with sushi and other
Japanese dishes on the menu?

Green Tip + Security Tip
When you buy electronic equipment, do not leave the boxes outside your
property for Pikitup. You might as well put out an advertisement for
burglars! Rather collapse the boxes and put them in bags for Mpact
Recycling (formerly Mondi Recycling, phone 011 538 8600): They will collect
clean waste paper and flattened cardboard boxes from your gate every week, for
free. Polystyrene and other packing materials you can take for recycling
to the Municipal Green Waste sites in Woodmead and Bryanston, along with your
tins and bottles.
Headline: "Wits fires sex pests". They apparently weren't
clear on the difference between "lecher" and "lecturer".

I learned something interesting recently. As you know,
there will be National and Provincial elections next year. What I
learned is this: When President Zuma announces the election date in
Parliament, the voters' roll closes. That's it! If you
aren't registered by then, you've lost your vote! If you have moved
provinces, you lose your provincial vote.
Are you sure you are registered to vote at your current address?
If you're not sure, the DA can help:
Click here to create an e-mail to me, add your ID number and
telephone, and we'll let you know where you are registered. If
you aren't, or are –at the wrong place, we'll assist with
registration or re-registration.
Even if you are having doubts about voting, why not register anyway?
You'll be keeping your options open instead of deliberately throwing
away a privilege many people died for. Don't take the chance:
