Whoa!! If thats not enough then we continue on Gariahat, Southern Avenue, Menaka Cinema, S. P Mukherjee Road, Anwar Shah, South City, back on the E.M Byepass, Highland Park-U-Turn, Ruby, Parama Island, ITC Hotel, time to go HOME. At the dead of the night the roads shall be quite empty and our road manners however impeccable shall be put to test. Just a rough idea for a city drive n meet. What say members??
@swagatadutta - Wow, fantastic idea! not able to find the Thanks button, Thanks for this post.

Best time to drive within Calcutta.

Sharing small info related to this on my recent drive 2wks back -

11:30pm park st. - theatre rd. - maidan area (including Red Rd.) - PTS - 2nd bridge - kona exp.way - stuck in truck traffic - u-turn - back to Calcutta - alipore - taj (only coffee shop open, recent orders? may be!) - chetla - rashbehari - dp park - gariahat - ballygunge phari - dinner at Azad hind @BC road (few yrs ago hardly any place inside the restaurant this time, but now, AH was almost empty and could easily manage a table inside the restaurant, 1:15am) - B.Phari - gariahat - home : No issues with KP, empty roads, cool temp. fantastic drive.

Today I decided to upload the one and only picture which I clicked at the meet. Sorry for the late submission but I forgot all about the picture and it was lying in my phone. Looking forward to the next upcoming event.

Fortunately my car was placed first when this photo was taken.

Do we plan to have another meet or is everybody down with the heat wave? I am in for weekends before 10th June, preferably a late evening drive to beat the heat.

I just joined the forum (till now i have been the "addicted guest"). It would be great if a new meet is planned. Monsoon is almost here and it would be a wonderful drive.
