More on this in a while.

Manson, the only centrally located area according to NC and his geography is Chembur!!

Oye Gujju,

Check the words in bold. It was Manson who had found out all the places not me so

Hi Guys,

If in Mumbai am 100% in. May I give a suggestion considering that our better halves and other ladies are going to be there. Lets choose a slightly better venue than the Golden Moments/Sea Lord kind. Of course cost will go up but then its not every meet that the ladies attend.

What say guys. Can help in organizing if required.

Glad to hear that you and Mihika are in. Yes, please suggest places along with full budget indications. We are all ears.

Most men would not dare to bring other ladies along with their better half. I salute your spirit.

Here are my 1.275326 bits.

The boat idea is a no no. Too many organization hassles (permissions etc) which none of us want, besides the coming and going issues. Also we dont want seasick people polluting our sea with their regurgitation.

I am skeptical about the number of women going to join in. Priya and me will be there for sure and shes used to my vocabulory so nothing will astonish her anymore (i hope), no, not even Ishan.

Manish i seriously doubt CCI giving you food at 200/- or anywhere close to that my friend.
I think for a decent place with decent food one should budget at least Rs 500/-
plus liquor.

Gogi sir, I meant that the menu rates begin at 200/- per person, the hall booking, corkage, permit and soft drinks are extra.

Will check and revert back tomorrow, as the there was a holiday today at the office. Will revert with the final rates, chinese, moghlai and club menu tomorrow.

On a lighter note: sam is very lucky, he can curse in Hindi/marathi/gujarati but jenny would never know ! sigh, some people have all the luck.
regards

Sam baba,

Am going out of town for the weekend will come up with some locations by Monday or Tuesday. Just a thought can we come up with a poll on what would be the upper limit(per head) everyone is comfortable spending for dinner alone. That would help in selection of places.

As regards the other ladies was referring to the lady members of Tbhp and friends/girlfriends of the bachelors.

Manish,

Don't bother wasting your time as I don't think clubs will be appropriate considering too many restrictions/rules (wearing shorts/bermudas/smoking/cell phone) to name a few and lastly no dinner served after 11.00pm and you have to vacate by 11.30 as they switch off the lights. In any which way a decent menu will set us back by minimum Rs400++ even in CCI.

I think we can manage some good locations in a budget of say Rs650/-(last meet was Rs500/-). Some places that come to mind which will allow BYOB.

1> Gallops(Racecourse) - Has ample parking/good food stays open till about 1.30-2.00am
2> Shalimar Hotel(Kemps Corner) - Rooftop + AC enclosure
3> Mela(Worli)
4> Blue Sea(Worli seaface) - dont know if they will give below 750/- per head
5> Josss - Kala Ghoda

All these places should be possible in under 700/- per head provided we are at least 40-50 of us.

Don't know of too many places in the suburbs hence only suggesting these.

Viper

Gallops sounds nice, with its delayed timings. Food is also great.

Hope it works out, Clubs as most of you are aware have limitations.

There was a place very centrally located in Chembur next to Deonar bus depot, which is huge, has ample parking and is within N_C's geography.

Cheers

Shalimar is an excellent suggestion.
Jigs, why don't you check with them for 50-70 people?

Joss is way into town, many will not be comfortable with that, especially the pune troops. Blue Sea is way too nice and perfect for an MM3 meet, i'm sure you will agree with me on that.
