Fun at the #Groves2017 & Vineyard Festival with the Zapper App


Fun at the #Groves2017 & Vineyard Festival with the Zapper App


Let’s kick off this #TravelTuesday right with a journey to this year’s Groves & VineYard Festival hosted at the Casalinga Ristorante.
This weekend I was honored to be invited by ZapperTM to this exciting event.
This also afforded the perfect opportunity to take my mom out as a belated Mothers Day celebration/bond session.

Upon arrival we were chauffeured to the entrance by the brand new VolksWagen (VW) Golf models!

At the entrance we were greeted by these funny posers and given our tags😋

A massive white tent awaited us thereafter with loads of different exhibitors all vying for the attention of the crowds. Each offering a variety of eclectic & aesthetic foods & wines from all over the country.

Wine Popsicles!!!

We emerged from the tent to the outside area where a massive crowd were sprawled out all across the lawn. There to take in the sun & enjoy the live entertainment.

Mom & I headed towards the ZapperTM to meet the awesome staff there. They were so friendly & fun, helping us setup up the Zapper app on our phones & then showing us how to use it.

The app itself took no time at all to setup and the fun began when the Zapper team had us play a little game of Roll the barcoded Dice. Once it landed on a side, we’d scan with the app & win a discount voucher!

Zapper makes it quicker and easier for your customers to pay for their meals. But besides a great user experience, Zapper also helps increase revenues at your restaurant through greater efficiencies and targeted promotions.

Our tummies growled with hunger so off we went to get some food & try out the app for the first time. Scanning the QR code at Doppio Zero was instantaneous, faster than guy next to me paying by machine. And just as the Zapper team stated, not only did I have my R15 voucher I’d won but also R25 off my First Zapper purchase. Which brought my meal to a whopping…

On check out the app offers #WiseWords which I found both enlightening and entertaining. Though the app works so fast you have to speed read through hahaha 😂which is an added bonus.

Mom has been a wine enthusiast & connoisseur for years upon years now so you best know that she had a ball of a time tasting & sampling all the wines at the festival.😉😎

She even picked up an awesome looking bottle of Italian Wine (Third from the right)

My fun was not only using the Zapper app but the live entertainment going on outside.
Featuring the rock talents & smooth voice of Arno Carstens first up & nothing beats a front row view to that.

And then as if it couldn’t get any better, the irreplaceable Gangs of Ballet took to the stage, empowering the crowd up off the ground & igniting a fire in them.

I first heard about the app from my cousin down in Durban, Kwa-Zulu Natal. He raved about how easy it was to use and how much more convenient it made his life. So it was almost kismet being invited to join the Zapper tribe.
I totally enjoyed using the Zapper app, in that it was so easy & fast to use. No Need for a card or cash, which I don’t like carrying around anyway. Just scan a code that’s instantaneous, a few taps & presto volista PAID! both I and the vendor get notifications plus I get an invoice emailed to me. My payment history is all logged and cataloged for future reference. I gotta say I’m enamored by this app & all the future possibilities it entails. Technological advancements excite me & using apps that make life way WAY easier, is what it’s all about. Change can be both fun & convenient.
I also love the lowered risk option my mom now has when she leaves the house to go do shopping.

I; Enricoh Alfonzo; undoubtedly, vehemently, and whole-heartedly recommend the Zapper App to everyone.
“Get Zapp’d!” today

  1. That looks like such an amazing experience!!!!! You guys were treated like VIP's, must have been so exciting! I've heard about the Zapper app but have been really apprehensive about it but after this post, it sounds like a must have. Things are way too dangerous as is, at least having an app to make payment will not only be more convenient but can save you in sticky situations where you don't have cash on hand. Thanks for talking about the app and putting my doubts to rest 😀
