    Default The end of an era!

    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.

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

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

    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.

    Will do my best to be there. Can't promise, though.
    I am who I am because I do not know how to be anybody else.

    Please send my regards to Zack. Wishing all the best.
    Everybody crashes.
    Some get back on and ride again.
    Some don't.
    Some can't.
