Au Revoir – I had fun

odd graffiti

Dear Odd Friends,

 

For the past four years art, music, design & food has been my life. What an amazing experience and incredible journey with great people. However the time has come for me to begin a new chapter in my life. As of the 1st of October I will no longer be the owner of oDD Café (but I will always be part of the oDD family).

 

oDD Café has accomplished SO much in the last four years, yes we’ve been open for FOUR years. We were the first café in the country to combine art , design, music and food. We are really proud of what we have accomplished, specifically on the music side of things in collaboration with Darryl Torr & Openroom, a sound studio on street level, something that has not been done or tried before in SA.

 

The amount of artists that have walked through our front doors and went on to make a big success of themselves is amazing. We have had emerging musicians, graphic artists, designers and supported small businesses by having pop-up stores. Artists such as  Conrad Bo, from the super stroke movement, Chad Farah & Sarah Britten have all exhibited with us. Beukes & Deleney, Carrie Wolf  and  Paper Plan City are just some of the music success stories.

 

We created one of the larger graffiti walls this side of Jozi and we have come full circle. We started out with Mars (Who tagged the balconies upstairs) and we ended with him doing a live graffiti show on Heritage Day.

 

We have been revolutionary, we have been controversial, we were very vocal about the Fankies issue with Woolworth, we supported the 1%. We donated to the twitter Blanket Drive and other charities. We SURE had a lot of fun in the process.

 

We have been voted as one of the top 10 music venues & one of the top 10 café’s in Jozi, and for that and all our other accolades we are thankful & humbled. We’ve loved what we did and we loved that you were a part of it. The friends of oDD Café have been phenomenal. I have learnt so much from you all and have had lots of fun. It is very sad that I need to leave, but I am excited about the legacy I leave behind for oDD Café. So this is not my goodbye but rather my au revoir, as you will still often see me sipping my soy cappuccino in one of the best spots in Greenside.

 

Until next time,

Here’s to Long Weekends with Late Night Sundays and Mondays

Hey guys. The erratic power in the last week to two have been really bad. They have interrupted our service now and again, with events being cancelled like this Wednesday’s #LiveMusic performance and the beer tasting we had planned with Devil’s Peak Brewing Company from Cape Town. The Eskom load-shedding and the municipal works in the area have really dealt us low blows and we apologize for this.

We are going to be open for the next two weekends, till late on Sundays and Mondays.

That will be this weekend, Sunday March 16th, 2014 and Monday March 17th, 2014;

and the following weekend: Sunday March 23rd, 2014 and Monday March 24th, 2014.

Cancelled: #UnpluggedWednesdays & #BeerTasting

Hi guys,

We regret to inform you that we are cancelling tonight’s‪#‎UnpluggedWednesday‬ with Stuart Reece and ‪#‎BeerTasting‬ with Devil’s Peak Brewing Company due to power issues.

For the last two days our power supplies have been erratic due to municipal works in the area, and we are uncertain of the power supply tonight so we’d rather hold the event until we are certain there will be no power interruptions. Our apologies for this cancellation.
