Guys, guys, guys.
This meet has to be in south bombay since the cheap guest is staying at NSCI. Also friday is the best day due to the race weekend happening.
Let's not divert from this.

Race is on Sunday isnt it? A TV with the IPL showing would be great fun too. I'm assuming one of the semi finals will be on that day.

Tejas/Frank, could you guys confirm with Symphony for a group of max 30- 40 people on Friday with a menu ?

Cheers
Is Gogi 'SIR' in for the meet? Didnt see his name in the list, hence I suggested Pritam.

I'm open to any day any time any place.

Another reason why Sat would be better. Pune guys can also join in.

BTW, why not have a poll for the date, as always?

But if everyone else feels Fri is a better day, decide and post the details.

All will try to make it!

P.S. Even I thought race was Sunday?

Daktar,


Just a thought, had the CG stayed at Belapur or Kharghar or Vasai, would we have had tohave the meet there ? Won't hold water, the reason is that most of the people are north side, it should be fair on all. As regards the CG, he's getting a free ride and a free meal, I am sure he would oblige, heck I would oblige too

Cheers

Guys. Symphony has a slot on 22nd.
i just called and checked. if confirming, then we have to pay a booking amount.
i will give you'll an idea about the menu, and the booking amount has to be paid before saturday.
about 450-500 per head with mixers and a fixed menu.(veg, non veg both, with a lot of starters and main course)
Bring your own <relatives> replace relative with ...
Let me know if you'll want to do it there.
max 25 people. so anything after that I dont think there is place for.
no last order problem. it will be a buffet and starters will be served to the table.
there will be 1-2 waiters there to serve drinks all the time.

Ps: its a family place, so if anyone is going to rough up waiters, i will have to bear the brunt. am taking the responsibility, but we all have to be responsible.
its a place where we have been known for more than 15 years. might get a discount too. but we CANT be rude there or misbehave!
Also, the person who organized the last meet at sunny's got a lot of stick for all his hard work. i dont want to be appreciated, but no one should say, this is crap, and this is expensive, and you shouldnt have done this. i am going to try me best though!

game????

Arre Doc,

No one roughs up waiters in a tbhp meet, who and what gave you that impression and why on a public forum for ETERNITY ?

kaun bola tereko ? bataa
we are all above love and brotherhood, unfortunately that gets misinterpreted.

Anyways, aaj tak no one dictated terms to a tbhp meet, i dont think Symphony would be able to dictate terms.

Bhai, simply put, take any place which will give a private audience (private room) with whatever luxury one wants to bring in, and we are set !

They can charge us for picking up the pieces post our departure.
Anyone is glad in these times of tight business, say you can give 9 to 10k of guaranteed business.



Edit : Now Sunny Da dhaba meet : in the middle of nowhere you want gourmet food, alcohol and a heck lot of rowdies with a newbie negotiating ? Isn't that a precedent for a job decently done, heck he after all got tbhpian's in a place didn't he ?

All said and done, let's go with someone who is more amenable with OUR terms.

call me lets settle this.

am just making myself clear. we frequent that place quite often. people do tend to get rude after a couple of drinks, and then things can get dirty.
mind you, no one is dictating terms. if anyone thinks so, then they are free to make all bookings on their own at the place of thier choice!
cheers!

PS: 9-10k.. that's what we charge for ONE root canal with its cap. '-)
