A night of magic and mystery
A fabulous setting, “magical burlesque” performances by Diva Disastar and a host of how-the-heck-did-they-do-that tricks make for a very special way to spend Monday night in Cape Town. So grab your gal pals or your special someone and head for The Vault at the Taj hotel. On the menu: a sleight of hand show courtesy of the Cape Town Magic Club, all sorts of cocktails (including a special Monday Night Magic recipe) and great dinner options. Monday Night Magic shows take place at 7pm or 9pm and the season runs from 18 September to 30 October. Tickets start at R170 and you can visit quicket.co.za or call 021 424 9308 for details and tickets. Book fast, as the shows sell out faster than a bunny leaping out of a hat. Abracadabra to the max!
