Don't worry, the venue is not yet finalised. BTW your name finds a place in both city as well as Pondy lists!

Meeting you guys for chai would be great for me!

Vasantha Bhavan in Mylapore has a car park behind, and their security guys would have huge smiles on their faces at Rs.5 each per car! They are also more easy going than Saravanah Bhavan, who are rather keen on getting the next table-full of people in. Another place that has a big car park (coincidentally) is Vasantha Bhavan on 100-foot road --- although the area is pretty dire, unless one happens to want to buy granite, tiles, or taps!

Correct. Not far from where I live

I second that. A city meet can be organised relatively easier than a long drive meet, I suppose. The idea of having a meet is to associate names/handles to faces and rejuvenate the good relationship that we already have.

@Gansan: Making it for a meet on a Friday may be a problem for me as am a nocturnal person and my weekend starts only after 11 PM on a Friday

Thisz for the Pondi...

1.Petrol_head
2.Headers
3.Nitrous (did not bother to ask cuz I know our man and his mistress would be there)
4.2themax (assuming that if you are in for the catamaran thing you would be in for pondy as well)
5.Esteem_lover (just an assumption - u need to validate that john)
6.Sutta Kambi aka Hot Rod aka Lightning Rod aka @#!%@ aka @&#*$#
7.Pras Oct
8.Phoenix
9.Perakath
10.Neoranjit
11.Bakiya_2k12
12.Mission_Safari
13. Fiery Enzyme

I think we can also count it nitrous, Headers, Esteem_Lover, Bakiya (+1) (ppl, pls "bold" yourselves up )

As for in-city meets, that happens every weekend- though not as an entire gang. Last weekend it was me, nitrous, pras.oct85 and sutta kambi having dinner- today it was me, nitrous, bakiya ICEing my car... but ya, I get the idea- keep me posted, I will drop in if possible (read work n stuff allowing)...

@Mi10: Absolutely agree on the Mahabs meet. We will do this for sure. Perhaps monthly!

@bblost, what time will you be leaving on Saturday? Perhaps a lunch meet on Saturday will be fine for you?

Don't you wish to meet our man from Hyderabad? It is mainly to include him that I proposed Friday. Let us see how it evolves.

This should be perfectly fine, if the food will be OK.
