We are looking at couple of n/v starters, couple of veg starters and some veg/non-veg food, not to use any facilities at the resort. The budget we had in mind was around Rs.400.00 per head.

We are looking to book a restaurant near Moinabad or go to a farm house in that area and have a caterer do the catering.

Another apprehension is whether they have a kitchen that can cater to 30-40 people. I stayed at Button Eyes couple of times and their kitchen is pretty basic.

No harm in you trying with him. Please talk to him and let us know the outcome.
NoRules,

I spoke to Shahbaz. As an update, Button Eyes is no longer available on Sunday since one group has booked the whole place from Sat to Sunday 12 noon and another company from 2pm to Monday afternoon - so our discussion is moot.

Even otherwise he said he is not yet set up to handle "walk-ins" because it requires a higher level of operational expense.

So you may need to continue your search path after all

cheers

Krishnan

Thanks for the update, Krishnan.

The lunch plans are almost finalised and would be posted here latest by tomorrow afternoon. I can only say that we all are in for a feast - albeit paid for by us all

Manojgautam - I sincerely hope you are coming with your 3 friends. This lunch is for you folks (you will still have to pay your share though )

I have one request for everyone - Please check your schedule for Sunday and post your final confirmation by tomorrow 2 PM. Also please indicate whether you will be coming alone or with your +1 / half ticket (s) / friend (s).

Based on the final number we get here, the caterer will make his arrangements. We always have a +/- 3-5 people tolerance but a major drop out or attendance will lead to shortage or wastage of food.

Kindly co-operate and post your confirmations.

mobike008, if you want to add / correct anything, please feel free to do so.

Guys, I will have to drop out. The parents have scheduled a lunch with relatives which I cannot avoid - considering I haven't been in Hyderabad in a while - sorry have to pull out at the last minute.

Hopefully, I will get to meet you guys next time I am in Hyderabad.

Great. It is going to be a cracker of a drive meet with so many people attending. After the drive of the ORR we will go to a farm house of a friend of mine near Shamshabad. This farm house is opposite to Vardhaman Engineering College, Narkuda Village. The route to the venue is pretty simple:

On the way back from Patancheru leg on the ORR take the Bangalore highway exit at Shamshabad, get on to Bangalore highway, take the first U turn and then follow this route on the service road:

Oyster Airport Hotel --> Rallaguda --> Rallaguda Road -->Sri Ram Temple --> Narkuda Village --> Vardhman Engineering College.

The route from Shamshabad village is given in this link:

http://www.vardhaman.org/images/image-0.jpg

The Farm house is opp to the college. We have made all the arrangements like having a tent, tables, chairs etc.

Based on the confirmed numbers available, food is being ordered for 30 people which is the minimum we have to pay the caterer. Accommodating few more people is not a problem but drop outs will add cash burden on others. Please do come if you have already confirmed.

Now, the food -

The lunch menu is:

Chicken Drumsticks
Chicken Pakoda
Fish Fry
Corn Samosa
Singapore Veg
Boiled Palli
Peas Gudalu
Mutton Biryani
Chicken Curry
Paneer Butter Masala
Mix Veg Curry
Veg Pulao
Rumali Roti
Rice
Dal
Sambar
Curds
Double Ka Meetha & Ice Cream

The cost per person for the food is Rs.400/- We will add the cost of the tent, tables, chairs and tips and any other incidental expenses and share the cost among all the attendees. I expect it to be around 450/- per head, give or take few bucks.

See you all tomorrow morning.

Hi!

I'm not on any of the lists right now, as I most likely have family visiting.

What I can do is drive to both meeting points for an initial meetup photography as I can get myself away for about an hour and a half - I can shoot the pics of the rides and make the owners proud (but I admit that I'm an amateur). Any thoughts?

I'll look up the forum at the end of the day to check if there are any takers on the offer.

I will be at Meeting Point #1 at 8:29 am atleast. Blue Indica. TN Plates.
Am hoping to meet as many TBHPians as possible ! (even those who cannot join the whole drive can meet up at the meeting points for a few minutes - I am hoping that I am representing the group's majority view on this matter.)
Cheers !

Hi!

I'm up for the idea of coming to the meeting points - I can do some photography to upload to this thread too. I'm sure most folk can spare about 2 hours to get to drive between the meetup points.

BTW, I spotted a BHPian at Hyderabad in a red Hyundai Santro yesterday:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ml#post2824950 (Team-BHP Stickers are here! Post sightings & pics of them on your car)
Any idea who it could be?
