MyBru App: Official Press Release

MyBru App: Official Press Release

After over three years of hard work by two young entrepreneurs, MyBru App has officially launched their mobile platform for Android (available on the PlayStore) and iOS (available on the AppStore) on the 27th November 2017. MyBru app is best described as providing an exciting and innovative platform for connecting brands that are looking to advertise and acquire insights on their customers with consumers that want access to an easy and quick way to find specials. MyBru app has initially been launched in Cape Town with specials under four distinct categories – food, drinks, retail, and entertainment.

“We want to give our friends, family, and people in our city the opportunity for a more adventurous and more spontaneous lifestyle. Explore your city, meet new people, find new places, enjoy great specials, and ultimately just do more,” said Kalvin Sutherland, MyBru App’s Creative Director. “It’s about the opportunity to really enjoy life, to adventure, experience, discover, and enjoy – without breaking the bank.”

The app allows users to find specials in their area, search for specific deals, or see what’s happening around them – absolutely free of charge. Users will also be able to connect with brands, see their schedules, and even request an Uber to their required destination.

Brands will have the opportunity to advertise to a wide customer base for a fraction of the cost of traditional advertising, growing brand awareness and driving sales. With integrated analytics, a growing audience, and active users, the app will change the way brands advertise during this mobile movement.

“It’s the year of the underdog – small brands changing the game. What we are really trying to do is level the playing field. We want to give small brands, startups, and new ventures the opportunity to reach an ever growing audience, with a positive return on investment,” said Reece Meyer, MyBru App’s Executive Director. “Let’s see the gems make a difference.”

MyBru App and its team are already starting to make waves on social media, and the app is starting to gain major traction on the AppStore and PlayStore, with over 200 downloads within their first 24 hours of being live. MyBru App also started trending on the PlayStore and made it into the top #10 on the South African AppStore –  both within 48 hours of launch. We are excited to see what’s coming. Brands interested in joining the platform or collaborating can make direct contact with the MyBru App team via any of their social media platforms: @mybruapp, their website http://www.mybruapp.com, or via email: info@mybruapp.com

SA City Pass: Cape Town in 2 days.

SA City Pass: Cape Town in 2 days.

With free access to 70+ attractions in and around Cape Town, and just 2 days to enjoy them, we had to plan carefully to make the most of our SA City Passes – and that’s exactly what we did!

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Here’s what we got up to on day one:

Our first stop was 81 Long street, where we collected our SA City Pass and complimentary Hop on Hop off City Sightseeing Bus ticket – we hopped on the first red city sightseeing bus at around 09:00 and made our way to Table Mountain. Our City Pass let us skip the growing queue outside, and within a few minutes we were standing in the cable car taking in the beautiful view surrounding us.

We did some exploring on top of Table Mountain, made friends with some dassies, and grabbed some breakfast at the Table Mountain Café.

After our Table Mountain adventure, it was back to the red bus and through to Camp’s Bay to enjoy some American influence at Hard Rock Café, with great food, cocktails, and friendly service! Definitely a must if you’re a fan of rock and a good time.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

From Hard Rock Café we made our way to the V&A waterfront, where we planned to do our first cruise, but unfortunately the skipper was unavailable, so we decided to do some shopping at H&M for their end of summer sale instead.

Next up was some stand up paddle boarding at SUP Cape Town, where we spent an hour taking a relaxed paddle up and down the waterfront canals. A tranquil, and enjoyable experience that we cannot wait to do again – and surprisingly easier than expected, so whether you’re an avid watersports enthusiast, or you’re trying it out for the first time, we would highly recommend it.

From our SUP session, we took a brief walk back to the harbor for our sunset champagne tour, which included beautiful views of Cape Town’s breathtaking coastline, accompanied by some whale watching. The Waterfront Charter’s team were friendly, and more than accommodating.

With some time left to spare, we decided to fit in the Cape Big Wheel – although we were exhausted, we still managed to enjoy the beautiful nightlife views of the city.

Day two:

Still exhausted from day one, and with Cape Town weather against us, we put on our jackets and started our day off at V&A food market for some breakfast and snacks – and then once again jumped on the city sightseeing bus, and headed through to Hout Bay for a cruise to seal island in the pouring rain. Cold, wet, but worth it.

From Hout Bay we stopped back at V&A, and finished off with a walk through the popular Two Ocean’s Aquarium – where we got to see some intriguing sea-life.

After two days of adventure, we were exhausted and ready to spend our last few hours relaxing.

SA City Passes are available for 2,3, or 5 days and can be purchased online from the City Pass SA official website here.

Zeitz MOCAA: a contemporary art experience!

Zeitz MOCAA: a contemporary art experience!

What do you get when you combine beautiful contemporary art with free entrance? That’s right, a reason to be there, my bru!

MyBru App & The #DoMore Movement took the opportunity to visit Zeitz MOCAA (or Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa) for the museum’s free entrance on a Wednesday between 10:00 and 13:00, and we were NOT disappointed.

Visiting Zeitz is an unparalleled museum experience from before you even step foot inside – situated in the silo district, we were met with breathtaking architecture and a sense of awe. Once inside, we found ourselves surrounded by towering walls made up of steel, glass, and carefully segmented cylindrical concrete tubes – which are occupied by cylindrical lifts that make getting up and down all the exhibition floors a little easier.

Zeitz showcases some of the best African contemporary art along with international exhibitions spread throughout 100 galleries and 9 floors – a truly unforgettable experience that the team would welcomingly enjoy again.

If a love for the arts is your thing, then be sure to visit Zeitz on a Wednesday between 10:00 and 13:00 for free entrance (with a valid ID), or make the most of their yearly memberships starting at R250.

Oh, and while you’re there make sure to visit Zietz MOCAA Food on the 6th floor for some lunch or refreshments 🙂

You can find out all the info you need about free entrance on MyBru App, or visit Zeitz MOCAA’s official website for more!

Boston Breweries: a craft beer experience!

Boston Breweries: a craft beer experience!

Our good friends over at Boston Breweries are excited to announce the beginning of their beer tasting & brewery tours – a great experience for avid craft beer veterans and newbies alike.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

The MyBru App team along with our competition winners joined Jason this past Friday for an in-depth tour of the brewery as he passionately went into detail about the process and logistics around the brewing of premium craft beer – from start to finish, and everything in between. We knew very little about what goes into crafting the perfect brew, and the importance that each stage of the process plays, so we were in for a treat.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

After our tour we ended with a tasting experience, where Jason once again went into the utmost detail about all 12 individual beers, from popular brews such as the Naked Mexican Lager to limited edition flavours like Van Hunks Pumpkin Ale. We took the opportunity to taste each brew, as we learned about names, history, and other interesting facts that separates Boston from the rest.

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

Tours and tasting are open to the public weekdays from 11:00 – 16:30 (unless otherwise arranged) with a small fee of R50pp, so if you’re a beer enthusiast or you’re just looking to broaden your horizons, then we would highly recommend stopping by.
