Hi,

I 2nd NC on the venue part. The last meet took us a torturous 1.5 hours to reach Bandra from town. Takes away all the fun of attending the meet. Mind you I dont mind driving 1-1.5 hours for dinner but on decent traffic not bumper to bumper grind.

Anyways I am in if someone else will do the driving(not my car). Also do you think it is a good (read safe) idea to have a meet so far away at night when majority are going to be sloshed and then try their antics on the road.

What happened to TBhp policy No drinking and driving.

OK -

1) I did not think about the drinking and driving so far bit.

2) Yes, I remember last time I went to Dara's, it took me 2 hours

3) N_C is very dear to us.

So my dear Gautam, since you live in Chembur and there are many places like Chota's - do you have any suggestions?
Meanwhile I have still asked someone and will have concrette news by today.

Lets keep the venue at a central location where all from town and the suburbs will be able to make it without too many traffic hassles. That way everyone's needs will be taken care of . Last time Bandra was decent. Any other joint around there?

I don't think Golden Moments will want us back after all the back slapping and other slapping that happened last time...

Sam & me discussed Goldem Mommemts in desperation yesterday, & came to the conclusion that it was a bit shaky.

Figured the only way we'd be able to have the meet there would be to get another two members to book the place, instead of Mummeet & me, coz we'd be recognized. But then we'd have another problem because once the owner saw the lot of us again, it would be time to hit the road Jack.

Also, my ego wouldn't survive if I was asked to leave Goldem Mummemts. Being chucked out on my ear by Punjabi bouncers, from a former dance bar owned by a Sardar that lets even taxi-wallahs in ain't my cuppa tea. Or wine, thankyouverymuch.

I'm cool with whatever, whenever, before November 28th.

We could also drive to Lonavala or Panvel for dinner, which would be quite nice on a Saturday night, but that again breaks the drink & long drive rule...

Thumbs up The Booking is done :)

OK Boys,

I used the influence of a very good friend and have sorted us all out for Saturday 18th november.

Venue: Sea Lord Restaurant, Worli

This is a medium to expensive restaurant that many of you may have already visited. Decent family place, much superior to Golden Moments (which was fun too). I have reserved the small party room through the offices of the owner of the restaurant. There is ample parking and a Valet too.

Full Address:
Sea Lord Bar and Restaurant,
108, Neelam Building,
R.G. Thadani Marg,
Worli Sea Face Road,
Near Podar Hospital, Mumbai 18.
Tel: 022-24927009
022-666333780


The Deal:

Though they normally do not allow it, we are allowed to bring our own alcohol bottles. Please bring them in plastic bags, not open.

The charges are Rs. 300/- nett per person.

Seal Lord will serve us Soft Drinks, Water, Soda and Ice. Beer will need to be purchased.

Food:

3 non veg starters
2 veg starters (he said he will be extra careful about the veg people )
2 Non veg Main courses
2 Veg Main Courses
Rotis
Rice

The deal is excellent as the boss is a close friend of my contact. Please dont ask to reduce the food and lower the cover charge etc etc, he will not take less than 300 bucks a head. So this time, let us try and enjoy the food too.

Apart from this he has been warned that we are a bunch of loud people and the big boss says it's perfectly ok, as it is a private room.


How it will work:

Each one of us will pay the Manager Mr. Sukumar a cover charge of Rs. 300/- when we enter. This way you can pay up, relax, kick back, chill, eat, drink, enjoy yourself and leave whenever you like. No pressure, no worries.

Those who want cigarettes, beer or anything off the pre-decided menu can order the same from the waiter. He will bring it to you with a bill. You then clear the bill immediately with the waiter.
At the end of the night, there is no bill to be paid.

After the evening is over, we can perhaps sit at the worli sea-face for a while, a favourite pass-time of some of the senior BHPians anyways.

I have assured the restaurant that if we are satisfied, we will do this again some other time.

The party room has been booked for saturday the 18th. Please get to Sea Lord, ask for Mr. Sukumaran and tell him you are from team-bhp and he will direct you to the private party room.

Now, boys, please post a list of confirmations as soon as possible.

And you are all very welcome (third smiley, it's the thought of the smiley that counts)

P.S. I don't need to say it, but I will anyways. All newbies/ first timers etc are all very very welcome. There may be some jesting and leg pulling but you can really enjoy if you want to.

PPS: We have yet another surprise Chief Guest, someone not from Mumbai that everyone knows and likes See you there.

Default Directions to the venue:

Members from suburbs: take a right from the Poddar Hospital signal, this is the signal just before the main worli naka junction, after taking the right turn, drive along for a few metres, skid one crossing, a few more metres and there's sea lord for you on the left side. Neighbouring to sea lord are CCD and Sadanand (slightly more prominent than sea lord).

Members from town:

Take a left from the signal after Worli naka and follow directions above.

Sam: good arrangements
surprise chief guest et all, nice nice!!

manson.
