Wowee - another one ?
Somewhat dicey for me, but might try to drop in with my kid for a while, if the venue is nearer. Say Tyangra ?

Single Malt in Tangra? But, parking so many cars in the evening would be a problem at Tangra. Actually, parking would be a problem everywhere except the big hotels. Guys fix up a place and I'll be there. Just make sure that they serve sura!
How about the new hotel opposite ABN AMRO? They have a bar there. Alcove, at the same lace as Big Ben is also good. I don't have any idea about places near Shuvc's house. "The Bar" @ Hyatt? Dublin/West View too over priced me thinks. Any place near Sec V?
IMHO, Someplace would be too crowded and loud for "adda". Krosswindz plays on Tuesday and they are loud.

Sounds good but I don't think I will be able to make it this time as it is a working day and schedules are very unpredictable for me.



Will call planet or others and join if possible to get out. But for now count me out.

Not sure about tomorrow nite. Will give one of you a call and let u know. In Salt Lake, I would recommend Heka, the bar at Stadel (Salt Lake stadium). Very nice, and reasonable. Just came back from there actually

Looks like the Blackpearl was the "entertainer: of the lot. However looking at the gathering of cars, surprisingly Neil_laws machine stands quite out! Scorpio, looking good, and goes without saying the black Fiat as always, if only the bonnet needn't have to be opened for the wrong reasons! Anyway where did the corner marker lens go?

@planet whats all this rage all about, looks like you couldn't take defeat in your stride from a Santro packed with 4 people!! Joking! But, keep your "class" in mind.

Dont worry, what the "new" folks consider good-looking wants me to chanellise my passion to somewhere else. Low-wide-long, what more do you need? Architecture? Anyway check out the 4th gen Accord (1990-1993), even you will say this is boring, but I love it!

@ shuvc / shuvd / razor - how about Opium @ sector V? its a nice place - not that much crowded.

@ 1100D - thanks! but my car loves drinking Aquafina especially on hot humid days - and that in turn helps ETC in keeping her head cool. the side clearance light lens fell off w/o my notice - i couldnt find a similar one. i think i will get something like yours (zens' clear lens??). i am not even able to source the front side lamps (LHS one is old and faded)

@ 1100D - the dhikchakboomboomdhikchak Santro actually had no idea that a fiat could overtake a Santro. arey Fiats are supposed to be driven on the left lane na.
