Breeze @Supreme Business Park seems like a fine-dining place with covered-shoes-mandatory policy and valet parking. The view is supposed to be fantastic though. May be some other time, for a proper dinner meet.

Are there any other options at Supreme Business Park?

There are multiples options if we wanna sit and have tea/ coffee under a roof, like starbucks, gloria jeans, aromas, and costa but then parking would be a problem.
@VVB,
If thats case then we can park the cars along the road leading to the Hiranandani hospital since its a parking zone provided Friday early office leaver vacate the streets. There is a stall there for the cutting chai and some garama garam V-pavs.

Sorry Costas, Starbucks n the lot cant give the enjoyment which a cutting chai would offer. So I suggest skip them.

Great initiative SDP and hope you'll have a blast. I would have to skip this one as i work in Andheri (East) for the first half and then move to the town office post 430pm, i live in town as well. If it was a night meet i would definately be there.

Hello All,

I have opted for 6 pm as meeting time, because 6 pm will be good for people to reach Powai before traffic jams happen.

Hello Yogesh,

Aarey Garden Restaurant is a fantastic idea, if people opt to have dinner & then go home.

Also, as requested buy you yesterday, I have sent you a PM mentioning my mobile number.

Thanks,

Ghodlur Sir,

I completely agree with you on the cutting chai and vada pav. Which is why i suggested Jewel corner, for which we can park our cars in the School lane i.e. Forest Street and walk a few steps for hot vada pavs and chai. If everyone agrees then we can keep this as our plan A and in case it starts raining then we decide on a Plan B as well.

What say all??

Makes sense. Let's make school-lane as Plan-A and Near-Hospital as Plan-B.

Excellent plans BUT they both have the same folly, "What if it rains"? As the Hospital lane would also not have much protection from rain. (@ghodlur - Mind doing some risk analysis for this?)

In fact from Rain POV, Jewel Tapari provides better protection.

But I would be able to make it only if it 6 PM meet as I come in car pool and would be bad keeping my car pool mates back for this long as we usually leave by 6.30.

The grass is always greener on the other side, my friend.

9-6 jobs exist only in Govt and semi-govt organisations. Most of us would be taking 2-3 hours off from work for the 6 or 7pm meet.

I'm in but 6 pm is too early !

I leave office between 6-640 pm and then have to travel the dreaded JVLR till Powai - so reaching before 715-730 pm in the monsoons is impossible.

Will keep an eye on this thread.

Seems good.
If it's raining then let's all get into a nearby mall. Or let's have an umbrella meet.

'Umbrella Meet' reminds me of the good old college days when it used to rain and atleast 4 - 5 of us used to get within one umbrella and share chai and vada pavs.

Exactly Rohit, Jewel would provide better protection in the rain.

If fine with all then how about we finalize on our Plan A as parking and meeting at Forest Street (School Lane) and having a cuppa and vada pav at Jewel. Both the places are marked on the map i have put up in a previous post.

For Plan B we could probably keep it as the pay and park opposite Starbucks. Plan B is only in case its raining very heavy.

With regards to time also we could keep it as something like 6pm on wards till say about 8pm maybe, so that people can come and leave as per their individual convenience. I myself dont think i will be able to reach before 7 as my office is in JB Nagar.

What say guys?
