On 12 June 2008 DVader had the brainwave to start a Friday coffee stop in Midrand. The first official gathering was at the Shell Ultra City on 1 August. The name Halfway Cuppa was selected and the following Friday we went to our new venue, Mr Bojangles. The first one was attended by myself, DVader, Pravesh and Tripper. HC has been at Mr Bojangles ever since.

The owner Zack, is moving on, starting a new restaurant in Centurion having sold Mr Bojangles as a franchise. Friday will be Zacks last day at Halfway Cuppa. Let's all make an effort to join him there for a final cuppa with him before he motors northward.

I was there the first time. I will be there the last time. :salute:

Indeed sad that it's an end of an era, but on the upside glad that things are looking up for Zack

Will be there :salute: Started going in 2012....

WE must ask him where he is moving to...maybe its still nice and central for HC to move to his new spot.

We know where he is moving to and we will certainly make a group to join him on opening day.

Basically a block away from Bavarian BMW.

Thought you said last Friday was his last Friday? :erm:

Nevermind, saw your correction in the other thread.

You just had to have your say though.

Zack is leaving. Mr Bojabgles is staying open. Mags met the new owner yesterday. So, Mr Bo's may remain the venue. We can chat.

In the meantime, let's all rock up and say goodbuy to Zack.

Friday will be Zacks last day at Halfway Cuppa. Let's all make an effort to join him there for a final cuppa with him before he motors northward.


CORRECTION:

Zack's last day will be Friday. Let's all go visit him this one last time before he moves of to greater and hopefully for him, greener pastures!

Get there for a last cuppa old oil with, or without milk and sugar!

Friday it is.
