Now, shebeens are legal and are an important part of our cultural heritage. They appeal to the youth and are popular amongst tourists, especially when visiting areas like Soweto. I believe they are similar to “juke joints” which were popular in America’s South.
We had an amazing afternoon, wandering around and looking at everything. One of the things they do, which tickled me no end, it fill an ANCIENT washing machine with ice and put beers inside it to keep cool. Like a huge ice bucket!
They served our drinks in old tin cups!
I think we might just go back there!
