South Africa's Heritage Day affords us the opportunity to come together again, to celebrate our cultural diversity, the same way most South African public holidays are commonly enjoyed in "The Rainbow Nation" - with a good old-fashioned South African braai.
In South Africa, a braai is known as a social meeting, where food is prepared on an open fire. In Amsterdam, Braai is a place to meet, talk and enjoy the good things in life.
Meet us at Braai Westerpark, or walk to the official BBQ (aka "braai") area of Westerpark, and let's celebrate like we used to - in the Spirit of Ubuntu: "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity".
Let your hair down. Belly full. Grateful for everything, from the grass underfoot to the short time we've been granted together, and let's #BraaiAmsterdam!
You could follow the Springboks, bring your own animals, play a game of one bounce or touch rugby - even braai/bbq yourself. All are welcome… natuurlijk!
So, dust off your malaise, and let's find your South African spirit!
AUTHENTIC ARTISANAL AFRICAN DRINKS
Want to try any of Braai's signature cocktails? You know where to be!
Feel like a classic cocktail? 'Suip' on a William George Daquiri, Leonista Margarita, or choose your favourite Six Dogs Gin & Tonic!
Wanna grab and go? Shakacan have you covered. Everywhere. Anywhere.
Try for yourself in Westerpark, just don't forget the ice, or pick them up at your local braai location.
Stick around after the sun sets, at Braai Westerpark, and show us your moves as you groove to the 'tunes' of the homeland, with some Saffa Single Grain or Cape Brandy; watch as the Six Dogs dance around you, or brandish some biltong…
…and let's see if you can Awaken The Lion Within, with a 'Flight to the Karoo', sampling our range of Leonista - 100% Karoo Agave spirits.
If you're driving, you can try a selection of cocktail-inspired, alcohol-free mixed drinks, with the new and exclusive range soon-to-be launched here in Amsterdam:
Selati Free Spirit.
0% Alcohol. 100% African.
Show us your interest - or better yet your support - and RSVP (for a chance to WIN), share the event on your feed, or invite friends or loved ones. The more the merrier. You never know, you may just even bump into some local Amsterdam legends!
Who will you invite?
