Making him relax wouldn't have been so much of an issue, I would have thought. But yeah, cant let Gogi Sir not drink. Sigh, its a pity. Will miss the food. :( Gogi sir, kuch jugaad lagao yaar. Can we blindfold the staff once every two minutes?

Btw, @ Gogi Sir: Do you think its worth a shot talking to Sony Sachdev? I think he has a rooftop kind of place over H20.

I wasn't there for MM2 but have heard tales of it.
But the meet at Pritam's was awesome.
It was pretty civilised for women to be around.

But having anchored myself to one spot, i could see Gogi sir on his toes throughout the night.
I seriously don't recollect having seen him seated.
Plus he also mentioned he won't drink at his place as he wants to lead by example and rightly so.

So Pritam's is definitely out.
Sheesh- gonna miss that lovely food i couldn't have much of last time.

Boat- err... i am scared of the ferry capsizing and i will surely sink like a cannon ball.

Whatever you'll do, make sure the food is great and unlimited.

Bandra or some place around would have been nicer as i can catch a rickshaw to the place.
I can't fit in those rusted, re-welded fiat cabs and will have to seek a lift and trouble someone unnecessarily.
Last time, Ramie sir and his bro lugged me around town and i was feeling guilty for all the inconvenience i must have caused.

Damn- it's almost a month away yet.

I like these 2 options.

In fact BBQ Nation will fit in the budget (Rs 500 pp) but liquor thingy needs to be worked out. And some bit of decency would be expected.

I could also check on MIG Cricket Club, Bandra (Kalanagar). Let me know.

Check it out, Nishant. Though I believe they had run into some sort of trouble a while ago.

BBQ Nation does not take bookings for a large group that ours could possibly be, and BYOB is a problem. I had checked with them a couple of months back.

MIG again shuts early.

Nirvana - this is the place near Deonar bus depot, has a hall, food "buffet" starts at 350/- they have a large hall, both indoors and they have an outdoor venue,

BYOB would be tolerated. Have spoken to NC on the same, this is on the left hand side of the Sion Panvel road (in chembur) on the way to Vashi.

This large party/restaurant/bar happens to be after the Deonar bus depot signal.

Cheers
MM

manson.

Citizen??? No thanks. Just out of curiosity... How come you suggested this place..??? out of all thousand places all over mumbai.

Kings has Bombay 72 east i think. That should be a good place.

No, he doesn't come across as that kind of a person.

I'm sure he just likes to aimlessly stroll around Juhu beach, drive his bike in endless circles around Juhu Beach and erstwhile Sheetal Samudra and taking the occassional pee halt at the Shauchalaya opposite Mithibai college.

Ouch! Times have changed - for the worse :(

ps. Swale has listed two negatives, which I must clarify: 1. I haven't seen a old Sardar - even the older ones are generally full of life and youthful. 2. And never one with fading hair.

guys,

If the ladies on team bhp want to attend the meet and a few of us members want to get wives/gf's along - THEY WILL.

Period.

Manson - teri jawaani dhal rahi hai toh uska zimmedar tu hi hai ! Why are you taking away the fun and joy of the ladies ?

Sam its not the staff. I dont drink there as its my place of work. I dont think anyone would drink at their factory or office.

Yeh Kya "Sir" "Sir" laga rakhi hai Ajay Sir?

No need to blindfold my staff. They know I drink but also know i dont drink on premises. Im ruthless to any staff who reports drunk on duty, i think i should, first, lead by example thats why i dont drink there but i have no issues at the meet being held at my place. Really, so if you guys want to have the meet there its absolutely ok with me.

Well thats would be another good idea. H2) would be a nice place but does it have a seperate enclosure fro 50 pax or so. Secondly keep the timing in mind. No place would let you linger on after 1.30 pm and that means you should finish your meals and pack off by then. Also please note there is a smoking ban on all the places.
