Talking Bongo-bondhu - Lets Meet - 20th December 2009 - Kolkata Meet

Like the thread title says, guys lets meet. i don't remember when we met last. all i remember is the long drive to & from Kolaghat Dhaba and the lovely Fly kababs that were served after 1.5hours.


Now - This is what i feel:
Sun is shining, the weather is sweet, yeah
Make you wanna move your driving feet now
To the rescue, here I am
Want you to know, y'all, can you understand?
When the mornin' gather the rainbow, yeah, yeah
Want you to know, I'm a rainbow too now
To the rescue, here I am
Want you to know, y'all, can you, can you, can you understand?
Sun is shining, the weather is sweet now
Make you wanna Drive......
[DJ Dug edit ... Dj Dug is not that famous ...only one member knows him in Kolkata ]

Lets meet guys!

I will prefer a small drive followed by lots of ADDA - Veggies and Non-veggies, people with / without cars / bikes - all are welcome.

Options as follows:
1. SeP - Dumdum
2. China Town
3. Mishra's / BB'S /
4. Sonar Bangla (Midway Motel), NH6

Date: 20th December 2009 (Sunday)
Time: around 11.30AM
Gathering: Opposite Nicco Park (for options 1 & 3) // near the IOC Petrol Pump (for option 4) // We can directly reach the venue for option 3.

Now don't be lazy - get ready petrol heads and TCed diesel heads - lets meet.

PS: Members can tag along Family / Friends.
PS2: @ Rudra da / Zappy - are you guys joining us??
PS3: Bongo-bondhu = Members of Bong-land, Kolkata. Now com'on! you know what i mean!

The data reading software in my brain is so slow that i had a hard time processing your post (try text formatting - see FAQ).

SeP, Dumdum = Sher e Punjab, Dumdum

Mishra's = SaltLake City near Bidyut Bhawan, Karunamoyee.

Fly Kababs - Flies on Kababs - not hygienic.

>>> Got these two eateries now; remember Mishra's. There used to be a Sher-e-Punjab, near the Ballygunge Phari ( my location sense of Calcutta is getting poorer by the day, unfortunately)- is it still there?

By the way, my favourite Calcutta restaurant used to be Mocambo's, off Park Street - hope it is in the pink of health.
Thank you for letting me go off topic again.

Its Dhaba at the Ballygunge Phari intersection // Azad Hind Dhaba at Ballygunge Circular Road beside AAEI. Both are there in the pink of health.

I love this part! That is where we are headed this Sunday. It is still one of the best food joints in Kolkata Peter Cat's level of service has dropped / quality of food had detoriated IMO but still manages to attract 100s of customers.

Ok! coming back to the topic.

I am going to MOCAMBO off Park Street on Sunday and i hope you guys will be there. Final details as follows:

Venue: Mocambo, Park Street
Date: 20th December 2009
Time: 12.30pm onwards - expect a waiting time of around 30mins
Gather at: Reach the Venue directly.
Parking: Plenty - off Park Street / lane to Loretto House / i am sure you will figure out
Note: Oneway traffic to Park Street before 1PM from Park Circus // post 1PM you will have to take Shakespeare Sarani...
Tags: Family and friends

Carry a camera or else we will have to rely on our mobile camera.

a copy of this will be sent to the Kolkata members' group email addresses.

Hope to see you guys on Sunday.
