A Halloween Date With Joburg

Contact info

Wizards, bats, brooms and lanterns,
Eyeballs, cauldrons, capes and phantoms.
Magic, zombies and things unseen,
It’s party time this Halloween…

It’s the night after Halloween and the kiddies have had their fun. Now it’s time for the adults to come out and play! Who ever said adults were too old for some good old ghoulish fun? Put the children to bed and rub their aching tummies, then gather your friends and don your capes – the Halloween Date with Joburg.co.za is sure to be a scream!

180 people will have a blast as they gather at the Nelson Mandela Square and split into three groups of 60 each; some in costume, others not, but all of them in the mood for good food and a lot of excitement. Each group will have a starter, main and dessert in a different restaurant. The three participating restaurants and their chefs (Andrew, Jacqui and Garth) have created a supernatural menu for you to enjoy and between each course you’ll all gather back down at the square for tricks and treats and a bit of spooky fun. And the best treat of all, to revive you from your fright and refresh your dry mouth, is Lipton’s Iced Tea that will be available all evening.
