Thanks for the appreciation. But seems like recession is slowly fading as these hotel guys are back to their aloof self.

Tried FK, no deal there so they directed me to KDR mentioning it is available there. When checked with KDR, they said no such offer but only 30% off on beverages

So looks like NHP is our only bet and i need to unload my coaxing powers in full steam...LOL

BTW, what about the Fortune Katriya or Katria de Royal???
FK and KDR : as mentioned above, no offers

I will go up to Rs.600/head which is happens to be the threshold of acceptance for most of us :-)

Paaji, F9 serves awesome food. If we get a deal there it would be awesome.

haha, great reply.

I am still tentative. It all comes down to how long they keep me back at work on Friday, but most likely will try to make it.

Btw, forgot to mention i had checked Amrutha Castle too the other day and had an interesting conversation with an eager hotel manager :

Me: Do you have any food and beverage offers going on currently in your hotel?

Restuarant Manager ( Tuti Puti Angreezi): Sir, we have a great offer

Me: Really? And, what would that be?

Restuarant Manager: There is a chinese buffet going on with several tasty and lovely chinese dishes. It will cost you Rs.300++ which comes to Rs.375 NET

Me: That sounds great. I am sure this price includes unlimited beverage, I can confirm 20 people rightaway

Restuarant Manager : Oh Noooooooooo Sir, no beverages. we have another great offer on beverages. You will get 10% off on beverages

Me ( what i thought) : Why don't you take that offer and stick it up your.....nose !!!

Me ( What i actually said) : That's an amazing offer. Expect my call with a confirmation shortly.

I am sure he is still dreaming of my phone call

called up F9

they have 2 offers:

1.850 per head plus taxes- this includes 1 veg and 1 non veg (though he said he will take it upto 2 each) , buffet dinner and unlimited beverages

2. 275 per head plus taxes for buffet and if we reach before 8 PM, all the coke and pepsi, orange juice etc etc will be included in the happy hour and he will extend the happy hour to 1130 pm for us.

sounds expensive, but the food is very good.

In case we go to ELla Suites, I can guarantee every one ample parking and free tea coffee at my place post the meet.

If i understand as i usually understand, this looks to be a fabulous offer since the happy hours are getting extended until 11:30pm. Correct me if my understanding is in the lines of a nerd's understanding. Confused? Not surprisingly, me too


@Rajesh bhai, that double minded thought is reserved only for a few and allow me to assure you, your not amongst them

Btw, keep your eyes peeled out. Himanshu is going to post a report on a cracker of a deal he is about to crack with the cute hostess for our friday dinner meet.

Guys, there is a slight change. It is Rs.650/Head ( 675 inclusive of tips, so please carry appropriate change) and now this includes soft drinks which otherwise is Rs.50 apiece

Me and Himanshu has been negotiating with her back and forth. You won't beileve, i even offered her a ride to moon but she prefered to stick to R.650/head price .

And she was almost pleading and said her neck is on the block. Me and Himanshu being the good human beings with big heart couldnt stand that and decided, chalo yaar, Rs. 50 bucks se ki faraq painda

One thing is for sure, she has assured us a memorable evening and guaranteed that we will go back to her only in future...LOL

So folks its all set, can't wait to catch up with you all.....

She will probably take a print-out and give it to her boss demanding a promotion!

While on the topic, seems the Red Beast has some serious competition from White Mischief - WM seems to have the upper hand as of now inasmuchas the RB has been described as "cho chweet" .............the saga continues on the 21st.

Just to make sure.....I think I read 7.00 p.m. as the time ........apun log wahan nashta karne jaa rahein hai kya? 7.30 / 8.00 would be better.

Cheers,
