I dont mean to be a killjoy, but lets also make sure that there is going to be absolutely no drinking and driving after the meet. With the Mumbai police in crackdown mode and remembering last years diwali meet, it will be a recipe for disaster. Lets make sure that theres a designated driver for people coming together, else just take cabs.

Price = 850 /- inclusive all taxes

The Package

1) 3 non veg starters
2) 3 veg starters
3) Main Course - 4 dishes + rice + noodles
4) Alchohol (Indian) - Beer , Rum , Whisky , Vodka (all unlimited)
5) Soft drinks and sodas included
6) DJ
7) 2 deserts
Very good deal buddy but as Sam said what about the people who dont drink (dippy etc) or who want to drink less so that they get home without getting caught? Also what about gyus who drink only Scotch etc. So thats why i think that some place like Sea lord which allows BYOB and is also tried and tested should be good. Ill go with anything that you all decide though.

Nc and i thought it would be easier having an alchohol inclusive package.
Have spoken to the manager at Ginseng, the place does not allow BYOB.
However, he said they would have distinguishing between drinkers and non-drinkers and offering two different packages.
But he will get back to me by tommorow evening how he can try and work this out, and have the non-alchohol package for a few people.

Hi,

It would be very difficult to distinguish between drinkers and non drinkers but that is the mangements problem. I am in. Would you guys be interested in an alternate venue which allows BYOB and has a party section. Let me know so that I can ask around.

I have done this once before - it's quite simple and requires a little ribbon.

Basically we give ginseng some green and orange ribbon. When you pay 850/- and enter - you get an orange ribbon to tie round your wrist and the waiter gets you alcohol.
You pay 500 (for example) and you get the green ribbon. Super simple.

Ask me about all these things lol, I do them all the time.

Ribbon ? Sam you really think the ribbons will be intact on the wrists? I think we need colored garlands or rubber bands

Dear Brother, we are meeting to have fun, why should venue be a deterent for you, come on!
I am in for the 8th. but will ginseng will not allow me my choice of wine or Scotch , unless mansion gets them to charge corkage for some members.
And will they be OK with our behaviour, no embarrasments Please during the meet. Sea Lord does take a Lot of abuse, and still allows us the use of their place!! Shetty's after all are very adaptable and flexible due to SAMS close connections!

Good suggestion, or we could simply stamp the non-drinkers or something, either of the two could be done. The manager is going to check if something like this can be done and get back to me tommorow.

Et U N_C!! Kyoon re? Imported ho gaya kya? I thought townies had this problem but you are toh a Chembur ka son of the soil. Dont be a spoilt brat
As scooby has said its the spirit of togetherness. I dont see any one of us going specially for dinner to Sea Lord but when all are together then does the venue matter?? Im in anywhere from Sealord to the local Vada pavwala.
Secondly please do ask him for corkage charges for imported maal (thoda spoilt hai apun log re!!)

Scooby, Gogi, abuse is what happened at Golden Moments last year, anyone who was there will agree that we have been perfect gentlemen at sealord

I say lets head back to GM if we really want a rustic place, like NC i'm sorta done with Sealord.

with Manson, The Golden Moments management tolerated us last time, so we know we can get up to almost anything. I cant possibly imagine wilder behaviour than that!!
