Alibaug cannot be a one day drive buddy. Once there, you'll see team-bhpians all over the beach with beer bottles and we wouldn't want to return. The journalist will be shaken not stirred.

3:00 pm will be really hot. Also, will become too long considering dinner as well. Most importantly, I cant get out of office that early

Why not group at Chandni Chowk (No, not the one in Delhi) at around 5:00 pm. Drive to Lavasa, be back by 7:30 ish? These days, we have daylight till aorund 6 :45 pm, so wont get too dark either.

Dinner can be at one of the places on NDA road.

No pay raise, Cigars are courtesy a generous cousin from the U.S who gifted me some lovely hand rolled Cigars

Single malts are Vikram's forte! I try to learn from him and hope to start my own collection soon (read : maaro some bottles of Glenlivet from dad)

well if the drive is to be short then Lavasa fits the bill perfectly, followed by dinner say at Oasis or any place on NDA road.
Hopefully something would come up tonight. Shrivz and Amey's last year exams are round the corner so it has to be planned accordingly

Someone talked about Tamini ghat?

I drove there last month, while coming back from Mahad. The raod was great, infact I was pretty surprised. However, I guess when I was about 70-80km away from Pune, there was a board that Mumbai area limits ends or something, and after that the bad patch started. Which went on for pretty long.

Errr... Why do you think a certain picture from our Goa trip is blurred deliberately and we beat a hasty retreat from Goa and drove back in 7 hrs flat??? Haven't you been reading the papers lately Ajay Bhai?

Of course he would be worried Vikram, his two favourite people both out of commission! What is poor Dhavlee going to do?

Anyway, thats why Dhaval bought that bottle of VAT 69 in Goa, which he has generously promised to share with all of us at the next meet! Looking forward to that Dhaval.

Back to the topic: Tentative date for the drive/dinner meet is next Sunday. Is this OK with everyone? Gives us plenty of time to detox and practice actually talking about cars at a meet!

Yeah, but MF is usually incapable of even lifting his finger after a few drinks, so I ruled out his involvement.

Okay that Vat 69 from Goa is a history now.. and i shouldn't be worried about someone having the old monk in hot water tub.
Whenever the maddest of the meets happen to take place (read: at some ones' house)the Vat will be brought in for you too Vikfeni

Coming back to the topic: yea sunday should be fine, though saturdays much better. Anyways i am with the majority.

Well, a promise is a promise. Since the Vat 69 is gone, I'm sure I speak for atleast Vikram and me, we'll be fine with a bottle of Glenlivet. Chal, we'll let you off easy, one of those bottles of Black label from your bar that you've been ranting about for over a year should do.

You should be VERY worried

Poor Vikram, I'm sure he's already had a bottle of Feni after reading this
