A brand with a full package, he is pencilled to usher in a new type of entertaining for the hotel establishment that seeks to position itself as Gaborone’s hotspot that caters to the whims and needs of a diverse clientele ranging from a business traveller to an ordinary traveller.
The lifestyle event will take place on October 19th. Besides singing, J Something is also a refined chef, and has published a cook book titled Cooking with J Something. Besides his love for music, he also has a craft gin, Gin Jin.
Highlights of the day will include indulging and sampling food prepared by J Something, a book signing session as well as quenching thirst with his Gin Jin. The event is planned to begin at midday and will go on till late. Tickets are on sale for P3000 for a group of six, inclusive of 2 platters, 3 bottles of Gin Jin and 18 mixers; P1000 for a couple, inclusive of 1 platter, 1 bottle of Gin Jin and 6 mixers and lastly P400 per person including a glass of Gin Jin and food.
Speaking in an interview, the Marketing Executive, Thapelo Mmono explains that the whole concept with the event is to do something different instead of what Batswana are accustomed to. She also says that the Brunch is part of Avani’s efforts to reposition itself as the leading social hub of Gaborone. “Our patrons have so much to look forward to including playing Golf, the Pizza oven and other interesting activities,” she explains.
This is the first of many events to come, she says. “We are going to have a lot of these events,” she explains. She further says that what is unique about J Something is the fact that he is a full package. When he is cooking, he interacts with his audience, and involves them on his journey of cooking, she explains.
