History[ edit ] Originally inhabited by the Mi’kmaq , the region was known as “Keespongwitk” meaning “Lands End” due to its geographic isolation being located at the southwestern tip of the Nova Scotia peninsula. An object known as the Yarmouth Runic Stone was found at the nearby village of Overton in It was interpreted by some to have been carved by Ericson, while others feel the markings are natural scratches gradually enhanced over the years. European settlement[ edit ] The region was visited in by Samuel de Champlain , who named it “Cap-Fourchu”, meaning “forked or cloven cape. They set up a small fishing settlement known as “Tebouque” in the mid 17th century and by the population was 50 people.

An esplanade or promenade is a long, open, level area, usually next to a river or large body of water, where people may walk. The historical definition of esplanade was a large, open, level area outside fortress or city walls to provide clear fields of fire for the fortress’s guns.

This will be a rather lengthy one, I do apologize in advance, there is no short version which will make you understand the issue at hand. We got a 2nd hand kitchen sink not installed and laying around , I have attempted to make my own kitchen built-in cupboards because we had no cupboards used 2nd hand board and kitchen cupboard doors as dividers. We basically just had our clothes and not much crockery and crockery. We were planning on buying as time passed but that never happened either.

Monthly Stardust Restaurant – A Theatrical Dining Experience The Woodstock-based eatery that not only facilitates a roaring good time for patrons but has also launched some major singing careers Since the advent of the video-sharing site YouTube in and the ever-growing popularity of TV talent shows, there has been no shortage of gifted performers permeating popular culture. But, for every Grammy-winning, multi-octave vocalist like Kelly Clarkson, there is an auto-tuned, flash in the pan, internet sensation akin to Rebecca Black.
Basically, quality control leaves something to be desired. I would say that it is probably easier to get into one of the musicals in Cape Town than it is to get into Stardust. The restaurant, which was previously situated in Rondebosch, is now housed in the hip Woodstock area of the Mother City in a heritage building that used to be a bank back in The new location has lent itself to attracting clientele beyond the Southern Suburbs, and the interior features quirky design elements like bar stools made from Vespas, an upside down baby grand piano suspended from the roof and a bank vault.
The building could easily be an old opera theatre in Paris or London with genuine woodwork dating back almost two centuries. But while the stage may still be somewhat small compared to that of grand concert halls, the platform is nonetheless rather substantial. Since opening its doors more than a decade ago, Stardust has nurtured the talents of a number of accomplished performers. A Long Walk to Freedom.
And as for the future, the popular Woodstock restaurant will also be adding an outdoor deck to set up yet another opportunity for the talented musos of the Mother City to showcase their abilities.
