Welcome to The Honey Ho's!
Firstly, don't judge us by our name. We were drunk and it seemed funny at the time. And, like those unattractive University nicknames that just seem to stick, The Honey Ho's never went away. So here we are.
We? We are a group a fantastic women who get together regularly to check out new bars, restaurants and venues in Cape Town with three specific points of interest: food, drink & atmosphere. Finding new places to go in Cape Town is easy. Finding places with reasonably priced food, interesting drinks and a great vibe is a bit trickier. While researching places to go on the web, I found I wanted an opinion not a menu. I wanted to chat to someone who had been there, who could say: Wow! What an awesome place! or A little pricey but worth it. or Jesus Christ! Run for the hills!
Being the astute young individual I am, I saw an opportunity for us to have some fun: do what we would do on any other Girl's Night Out, just review the places that we go to and put our findings up on a blog. Call it culinary research or investigative entertainment or something like that. Bottom line is, this blog is about having fun. One of us will "review" the most recent place we have been to, post it on the blog, and if we want, the rest of us will comment. If you care, you can read it and maybe it will help you choose a place to go next time you are looking to have a night out. If it sucks, well, isn't that the beauty of blogging?!
The Honey Ho's will be starting the 2008 adventure with a night out on Friday 18th January. Obviously, we won't tell you where we are going just yet because you'll have to watch this space for details. That's if you care, remember?
Until then, look out for the next post after the 18th as well as the development of this blog with pics and menus and other interesting things.
Here we go, ladies! Drinks on me...
