The Met you have to love it!

The Met you have to love it!

A social gathering offering the full spectrum of Cape Town society and what fun it was. Let’s leave the race for a moment, besides Mother Russia destroying my chances of a winning my Quartet bet. The quartet paid over R13 000.

The fun and laughter was to be found in the Sponsors main tent. The cast of hundreds made for entertaining people watching. We had designer Craig Jacobs getting down and shaking what his mamma gave him, while one of the most Stylish people was Karen Burt, from Planet Productions. She looked splendid and elegant with her husband Gavin on her arm.

We saw a side view of Bryan Habana’s better half. As for those glasses and hat on Bryan… the only question begging answering was why? But I suppose if you live north of the border, that’s what you call fashion.

Also had a good rib and jibe with Bob Skinstad, as two weeks ago Kfm introduced Bob Skinstad to Saturday 8-9am radio. All the station is doing is copying Heart 104.9fm On The Couch (also Sat 8-9am) which has been running successfully under the stewardship of Martin Myers for the past five years.

Co-anchor on the couch man and cricket fundi Zaahier Adams dressed in a loud pink shirt for the Met. Mind you, with the entire goings on this week in cricket, he is forgiven. Chester Williams looked amazing in white and boy-oh-boy does his wife know a few things about horses. She made a number of her friends very rich on Saturday with well-placed advice.

Newly married James Lennox, the great ETV sports presenter and all round good guy, looked great in his elegant suit. He was also the MC for Most Elegant Couple competition .

At the end of the day we figured out that Mother Russia was from MoscowJ Role on J&B Met 2011, where hopefully some of us may get the chance to redeem ourselves… please!
