A Change in Fo-ho-cus

So we had an awesome time last night at Relish (and then the Fireman's Arms) with 12 of the Ho's coming out to play. Once I've got all the pics from various cameras and phones, I'll post the review, but this post is to note a change in focus for our get-togethers. The Ho's used to have the sole responsibility of going out to restaurants and bars, and rating them in terms of a Girl's Night Out, right? But after 8 restaurants, interest seemed to be waning (and the wettest, coldest winter in 40 years hit Cape Town), and it became clear that a change was necessary. So last night we decided to extend our playing field, change the goal posts slightly, and give each Ho more autonomy: each month after payday, a Ho will host a Ho-Down. Said Ho can do absolutely anything she wants with her evening, provided the point remains to have fun. And chances are, this fun will include drinking and eating. Maybe not the food. But definitely the drink. In fact, if anyone hosts a Ho-Down without grog, there'll be a disciplinary hearing. Or something serious like that. Anyway, this blog will start looking at the kinds of things you can do with your Ho's, from events at houses, to bars, to parties, until another reincarnation becomes necessary.

But for now, look out for the Relish review, coming soon...

Slack Ho's

Ok. So we have been slack. So slack, in fact, that not only has a super-slack Ho not posted her review of The Nose Restaurant and Wine Bar from months ago, but we as a group have failed to have a Ho Down for quite some time. Indeed, it has been a long, miserable, wet winter. But fear not, intrepid readers - are there any out there?? - we are back and I will ensure that this blog keeps documenting the cool places that you can go with your Ho's. In terms of food and grog, of course. Clothes and make up and kak like that, you're on your own.

Next week, we are having an ├╝ber Ho Down with more Ho's being present that ever before. We'll be going back to our roots, Relish Cape Town, where we will drink cocktails until Wendy's walker breaks...

So until then, I leave you with an image for the day:
