Well, during that car exhibition I would expect people to drink a beer or something, but... liquor?

Anton, liquor and an event like these goes hand-in-hand and it doesn't have to be dark for one to drink.

I know it doesn't have to be dark for one to drink, I don't know why you guys picked on that part of my post.. what I do consider weird is that people would take bottles of liquor to that kind of event, I mean, I just can't picture it, people take a bottle of whisky and watch the exhibition as they drink?

If it was here, it would be normal that people drank a beer, a wine or a cocktail on a terrase café, watching the exhibition, but... to take liquor there... is that really common?

Lol, i would have thought beer was also liquor. I bet that's what you are thinking Pule? Anyway, personally it wouldn't be an issue for me to have a beer at an event like this or better yet, a glass of expensive whisky like this. But you have to realise in SA, drinking an expensive whisky like Johny Walker can be a cool thing especially once you manage to get some nice looking chics to notice it.

Here's wikipedia's defination of liquor.

The term liquor may mean spirits; spirits and liqueurs; or all alcoholic beverages, including wine, sake, beer, and mead.

Latest Sandton Central news..
http://www.sandtoncentral.co.za/news...ewsletterID=35

New Development For 9 Fredman Drive

A fantastic new development by RMB Properties is underway on the site of 9 Fredman Drive. This state-of-the-art development will see the construction of new offices for Rand Merchant Bank, who is growing out of its existing offices, as well as a super basement between the old and new buildings creating a Rand Merchant Bank precinct Place Basements. The project, which began at the beginning of August, will span 2 years with completion scheduled for June 2009. With this development comes some inconvenience and in this case, the northern side of Gwen Lane, from the traffic lights at Fredman Drive will be closed. Access to the properties in this area will be via Bute Lane off Fredman Drive. In order to minimise the inconvenience, the SCMD OutSurance team will be permanently posted to the intersection of Bute Lane and Fredman Drive during the morning, lunch and evening peak traffic times. The SCMD and RMB Properties appreciate your patience and co-operation as a new landmark is added to the Sandton Central skyline.

Peroni To Host Fashion In The Street At Sanlam SA Fashion Week

Peroni Nastro Azzurro will again host Fashion In The Street during the Sanlam SA Fashion Week (SSAFW) Spring/Summer showing on Saturday the 1st September at 21:30 at Burgher's Walk outside FTV Café - Sandton Central". "Peroni's alignment with fashion and effortless style continues this year with our continued association with SSAFW," says Peroni brand manager Lee-Ann Botha. "I anticipate that local designers will over-achieve in all aspects of this year's SSAFW, as they did last year. The Peroni Fashion In The Street celebrates the diversity and talent of South African designers and is the only showcase where all the designers share one stage to exhibit this." Peroni Fashion In The Street takes place on Saturday 1st September at 21:30, Burgher's Walk outside FTV - Sandton Central. The public are welcome to view fashion in the street.

Saw a minute render for the RMB building... don't get too excited. It looks like 5F. But the highrises will come.

People always complain that Sandton does not have street life (eg, cafe's on street level, people walking etc.) Well, a walk down maude street from Village walk to Sandton City disproves this notion.
