Some people will offer you their hand and some won't
Last night I knew you, tonight I don't
I need somethin' strong to distract my mind
I'm gonna look at you 'til my eyes go blind

Christmas is ongoing, but it's been hilarious so far. It's me, my foster brother who also plays poker semi-professionally, a friend of mine who's pro, and two Jewish friends of ours who kind of celebrate Christmas, but also have money, free time and no solid interests, which is a really strange combination of gift-exchangers that I wouldn't recommend you join up with. Some interesting gifts: A bankroll on the Redstar network; a $100 Fry's gift card, essentially exchanged for a Best Buy gift card of either $150 or $75 (I forget); "the sexiest crucifix available on the civilian market"; a home-burned DVD of pornography; and, crowningly, Allah receives his beloved North Face. Holla'.

As planned, the day has mostly been cursing, drinking and Wood Allen-watching.

I'll be going away for a few days over New Years. I decided to check and see if there are any sights that must be seen or things that must be done and found a handy "101 things to do in" list.

Below is the ridiculous list.


1. Spoil your soul with a scrumptious breakfast.
2. Let your senses feast on a picturesque lunch.
3. Treat yourself to an indulgent dinner.
4. Cook with a world famous chef.
5. Try a chocolate tasting without the guilt because in Franschhoek we don’t do guilt.
6. Buy a diamond, as every woman will attest it really does last forever.
7. Propose to your sweetheart.
8. Sample the finest South African wine from our 45 boutique wineries.
9. For a bird’s eye view of the village splash out on a flip in a helicopter.
10. Discover the Magic of Bubbles on the Cap Classique Route.
11. Follow the footsteps of Nelson Mandela as he took his first steps to freedom
12. Try out wine tasting on horseback.
13. Get involved during the Bastille weekend and give the barrel rolling competition a go.
14. Swing those clubs at a Jack Nicklaus signature golf course.
15. Pamper yourself with a body treatment.
16. See a real life sabrage performed.
17. Bite into a piece of juicy local fruit and other fresh produce.
18. Start that novel you’ve been meaning to pen.
19. Sip on a mid-morning cappuccino and watch the world go by.
20. Check out the classic art.
21. Chat to a complete stranger in the checkout queue, who knows you could have just met your new best friend or future partner.
22. If unique and one of a kind is your vibe why not commission your own pot?
23. Settle a disagreement by playing a round of boules, but remember standard Franschhoek rules apply. This means that whoever wins the boules also wins the argument.
24. Celebrate your anniversary with a weekend away.
25. Sip on wine paired with homemade charcuterie.
26. Hang out at the local pub and start to feel like part of the Franschhoek furniture.
27. Have a drink on the wing of an airplane.
28. Get married in one of the most beautiful villages in the world. You can come back every year to celebrate your anniversaries.
29. Tune into the Franschhoek vibe by listening to the local radio station.
30. If you’re looking for the view to beat all views give Paragliding a whirl.
31. Hike to your hearts content.
32. Snack on the best gelato this side of Italy.
33. No one can resist flowers, so why not spoil your love with a gorgeous bouquet of them.
34. Property watching
35. Relax with a movie & a glass of wine.
36. Amble along the beautiful back streets of Franschhoek
37. Memories fade, pictures are immortal, so snap away.
38. Slow down, relax, remember to breath. Enjoy the fact that you’re on holiday and let Franschhoek do what it does best.
39. Have a cocktail and watch the sunset.
40. Get your kitchen smelling like freshly baked bread by taking part in a bread-baking course.
41. Get involved in a friendly game of cricket.
42. Remember to sing – in the shower, on the street, we don’t care. Just share your happiness and delight.
43. Kiss someone under the monument and don’t forget to make a wish.
44. Turn your mobile phone off.
45. Settle into lavish country lodge, a cozy B&B, a quaint guesthouse or a comfortable self-catering cottage.
46. Stop to smell the roses.
47. Browse through the books at the bookstore. You might even find that rare volume you’ve been searching for.
48. Dine under the full moon.
49. Have a guide show you the ins and outs of the valley.
50. Be content in the knowledge that Franschhoek is a place where children can be children.
51. Investigate the not so classic art scene. There are artists in Franschhoek to do the most amazing things with wire, pottery and food.
52. Buy your very own farm and live the relaxed, rustic life you’ve always dreamed of.
53. Flirt with the cute waitron just to check you still have what it takes.
54. Franschhoek is really into the green movement so plant a tree and do your bit for the environment.
55. Enjoy the last rays of sunshine, sipping on Method Cap Classique and listing to soulful jazz that spills out onto the main road.
56. Munch on delicious local and French cheese in a cheese tasting.
57. The local information centre is stacked full of information and informed people use them to point you in the right direction.
58. Keep your fitness levels up in the local gym.
59. Spend a morning giving back to the community and read in one of the local schools.
60. Check out the views. On a clear day you can see for miles.

62. Come enjoy the romance of Franschhoek on your honeymoon.
63. Spoil your inner child with a piping cup of hot chocolate to ward off those winter chills.
64. Walk up to the snow covered mountain tops to make snow angels.
65. Visit the Huguenot monument.
66. Send your children to school here and make sure that you never have to leave.
67. Have dessert everyday because when you’re on holiday dessert simply doesn’t count.
68. Eat at 8 of South Africa’s top 100 restaurants. Yummy.

72. Be the first to try the latest wine releases at Franschhoek Uncorked.
73. Make wine the old fashioned way.

85. Catch a foreign film.
86. Find those antique treasures you’ve longed for.
87. Buy your own piece of heaven and start calling Franschhoek home.
88. Cuddle up next to a roaring fire.

91. Learn about the local fauna and flora.
92. Go French and celebrate Bastille Day with the rest of Franschhoek.
93. Walk barefoot through a grassy field.
94. Join South Africa’s literary greats as they walk you through their work.
95. Spend some time at the local theatre.
96. Chill out to beautiful classical music.
97. Play a game of Backgammon.
98. Smile and share the magic.
99. Lounge around a swimming pool.
100. Dance down the main road at full moon.
101. Fall in love all over again.


Gee, I can't wait to turn my cell phone off, hit on a waitress and play backgammon. Jesus Christ.
