By the way, why Chonas???

(To the best of my knowledge, the "Happy" Hours at Chonas are heavily biased towards a certain category of imbibers only.......)

In that "we" you are not included Ashish. I can't give a character certificate to you... And didn't you know that this "breaking news" was on India TV since last night

Guys, I too am game for it. Had a suggestion to make. Khan market, though centrally located, would be too crowded on a Saturday eveaning and parking would be a big headache.

Why not shift the venue to say Lodhi Garden resturant or for that matter IHC...or Chanakyapuri Malcha Marg? Can I also get a friend or two who are prospective T-Bhp members?

Can someone please confirm the time and venue after consensus of all attendees.

I thought Adult Education (Prodr Shiksha, let me clarify in Hindi too before the fertile minds get in to overdrive) only meant learning again, which itself has been akin to ragging for me always. But jo hona hai so hona hai, however, does it have to be the entire car; could I just do the gear stick?!!

And btw, the Getz might be smaller, but we all know that smaller need not necessarily mean an easier time.

I won't be in town on the 13th for the second one. So it'll have to be this Saturday only for me.

Arrey Ishan, why are you disclosing my actual vintage? All that money on botox is going down the drain...

No sweat, GD sahab. I enjoy these things. The less decent the better. Honour, well it can be there in indecency too, na?

Suman, I'm not going if you don't accompany me for protection from your neighbour!!!
SS-T don't worry, we'll look out for each other. If you want more protection, well...

I'm looking forward to this meat.

You can easily get parking there. Most attendees are happy to offer you one at a minimal 10rs tip.

There is a strong reason for choosing this place which you would know when you arrive at the meat.

You can bring your friends too. and the time and venue stands at

Chonas , August 9th 2009, 5.30/6.00 PM

That's a good point too.

Based on the above genuine concerns I'll be going to Khan Market today to do a recce and look at some other places where we can meet. Anyone got any ideas?

Manan, how is that Route 04 place?

Even I feel the same. Parking over there is a big problem.

PS : Saw your post abhinav now, if thats the case, then it ok.

Guys, take it from someone who is an almost local of Khan market- this place is a parking nightmare on most days- except maybe Sunday (so you might just get lucky). Sunday the main market is closed and till about a year ago parking used to be a breeze...but with the opening of so many restaurants, even Sunday evenings are getting jampacked (read: double and even triple parking). Still, if it has to be Khan market, then think of no other day than a Sunday.

PS: Looks like I am gonna miss it- am returning to Delhi at 11pm on Sunday :(

Iraghava - "Based on the above genuine concerns I'll be going to Khan Market today to do a recce and look at some other places where we can meet. Anyone got any ideas? "

Oh just great...Considering the distractions at Khan market and that too on a Saturday eveaning,kindly define the assembly point, if khan market is the place to be at! Secondly, can the time be shifted to around 6.30-700 please? Have to be in office on a holiday!

Years ago, when we used to have office parties- we used to sign up with Turquoise Cottage and pay around 700-800 per person for unlimited (IMFL) drinks and a couple of starters. Even today, most five star banquets have a similar offer for around 1000++ per person. Anyone want to pursue this option with Route 04 or the likes?
