Hey RT,

I think we can appoint doc the designated driver with his car since he is not drinking in any case. Else I'm afraid you have to do the honours.

I will be there for the meet, will be travelling from Vasai, if any one needs a lift please let me know.

This will be my first Team-Bhp meet, and I am very much excited to meet all of you.

Would be grateful if I can have cell numbers of fellow TBhpians(PM me), in case if I get stuck somewhere I can call for help/directions .

Thanks.........Major

Hey,

Dont worry. Just make sure you have plenty of valuables int the car like nice ICE laptop etc and inform us in advance. We shall take care to see it is well used. You might have to walk .5km at the most.

@major, & other potentially losable souls:
If you get lost, call me on +91 98210 62904.

Yes Mummeet, I know giving out my number on a public forum is not a good idea, but this is in the interests of betterment of mankind & vukablaree expanshun lessans.

Anybody else like to give their numbers as a backup?

Did I say I'm driving down?? I meant coming by bus to Sion and then coming by auto rikshaw to the meet .....

Seriously, is parking available around the place.....and before anyone thinks of renting out a 'valet' uniform..it wont work....especially if the valets on crutches..(sorry Viper, couldnt resist, even I've broken my leg before..3 times to be precise, so know how it feels when these insensitive souls pull your already broken leg)

@swale84: Don't worry about parking or entering the joint - we'll be there to welcome you with open arms (& crutches, in Salim Langda's case).

Your car shall also be exempt from any of the parking problems that Viper mentioned if you use the secret high-roller's code.
Simply drive up, & either Pappoo or Tatti Singh Gill ('owner's son', as their visiting card says) shall park your car personally. Just open the door of your car & yell out their first names at the top of your voice. I'm sure you'll get some attention quite quickly.

PS: All other members coming in for the meet please note - Goldem Mummemts have a very strict dress code: white shirts only.

Yes most of us are straight. Straight from hell!!

Oi, Boom boy, didn't know you were outwardly homophobic... And don't lie, you're quite enjoying the visions, ya sick child!

PS: In the interests of further educating members, Viper shall be conducting a pre-meet workshop @ 20.30hrs at the venue. This workshop shall be on massaging throttle bodies & headers. Do come for this educational session at least. For further details & registration, please PM or call Viper. The dress code for this section shall be shorts, as the proceedings may get messy, what with all the grease & leaking fuel & all.

Default Getting there...

Wokay, since we're so close to the date, heeere's the directions to the place.

-------------------------------------------------
First, the MAP.



DIRECTIONS:

-------------------------------------------------
Northbound from South Bombay.
  1. Come in through Mahim Causeway all the way straight till you get to a huuge 5 road junction (Bandra Junction). You'll find a big HP petrol station here.
    .
  2. Take Linking Road, which is the left part of the forked road right in front of you. If you don't know, ASK!
    .
  3. Drive down Linking Road, passing the Shell Pump junction, National College/Pamposh junction, till you come to the next junction which is the KFC/Nagani's junction.
    .
  4. Take a left turn onto 33rd Road (shown above).
    The road's quite narrow & you'll have a truckload of people/hawkers ambling about here without a care in the world. Try to run over some of them $%^$$%^%s. Free Tandoori chicken leg piece for every injury inflicted.
    .
  5. Keep driving straight down till you see a sign in the sky saying Hotel Delmon. If you can't see it, contact Boom Shiva who may supply you with substances that'll make you see stars/lights in the sky, which is a good thing, considering that it's Diwali.
    .
  6. Right next to Hotel Delmon is Mini Punjab, owned by Kakey & Khotey Singh Gill, & opposite that is Annapurna Snacks.
    .
  7. Right next to Annaporno Snacks is Goldem Mummemts. with a single dot. If you can't see it now, go home. Bring your car around to the entrance for valet parking, & yell out the owner's son's name, which is Tatti.
-------------------------------------------------
Southbound from North Bombay.
  1. Come in from wherever you do - the highway, down SV Road, Ambedkar Road, wherever. You should know Bandra by now.
    .
  2. If you don't, get onto Linking Road (Bandra, not freakin' Oshiwara) & ask somebody for McDonalds.
    .
  3. Once you get to McDonalds, (no, don't eat there you idiot!) Take a right turn onto 33rd Road (shown above) at the KFC/Nagani's junction.
    .
  4. Follow directions above from point#4 to #7.
    Lose your way, call somebody. The telephone number has been posted by Sam before.
-------------------------------------------------
Westbound from East Bombay.
  1. Pack sandwiches & booze from home.
    .
  2. Find Sion Circle. You can't miss it - it's right next to the huuuge McDonalds sign at Kharghar, under the Khopoli bypass, about 500mtrs from Shahpur.
    .
  3. Open sandwiches & eat there. Send booze to us - we will thank you for it.
-------------------------------------------------
Eastbound from West Bombay.
  1. Come in through Mahim Creek, & take a left after you see the lighthouse.
    .
  2. Ask your dhow captain to drop you off at Carter Road near the doggie park.
    .
  3. Take a rick to the place from there.
