Yup, 4th is good but this time, the "meat" must take place in Gurgaon - enuf of South Delhi, I'm definitely not driving towards my workplace on a weekend

I would also take the opportunity to suggest the venue as Barbecue Nation, Gurgaon.

@anupmathur
Mathur Saheb, hope you will read this and it would be great if you could join us.

@sabylamba
Newbie's are always welcome to attend the meets after all they have to bring pastries for the junta in attendance. Sort of an initiation ritual if you would like to call it that. See ya there, BTW my favourite is Bitter Chocolate

I am a newbie. Well, sort of, since I haven't met anyone of you. It would be a good opportunity to finally see in person some of the stalwarts of the community. I will refrain from casting my vote on the poll until I am 100% sure about my attendance.
@isp as and when you do confirm remember the pasteries. See above ^^

@Suman See the above suggested venue in bold trust that is 'meaty' enough for you and gd1418.

Is there an option to meet on a Sunday afternoon-evening? 5th September rather than 4th?

Barbeque Nation is a good choice for venue.
They have good parking space available.

Khoj Sir, seems like this time a lot of pastries would come.
This will be my first meet too.

Hmm.. so BBQ Nation has come out as a favorite (and the only venue) so far!

Since I am not familiar with 'meaty' meets, though I think I have a clue, what ought to be the preferred time? Late afternoon/early evening till late? Or start around noon and end only when staff shows us the door?

I am assuming that Saturday would be an off (5 days week for most of the folks).

@SS-Traveller - Doc, I am not sure if a 'meaty' meet would be possible on a Sunday. However, as they say - jaisee panchon kee rai

Panchon kee rai kehta hai finish the meat by 8 PM Saturday, as is traditional - which is the time I get to be free. I'm sure meaty meats can also happen starting 7:30 / 8 PM on Saturdays, or starting 2PM on Sundays and carrying on till 7 PM.

You guys seriously don't want me to join in, or what?

Arre doc! You have got into serious EB business now

Roz toh kaam karte he ho, ek din 3 ghante kee chhuttee le kar weekend jaldee shuroo kar lo (you anyway work everyday, let your weekend start a few hours early that week)

As it is, there are good 3 weeks at the minimum to plan accordingly

Come come Doc, no need to exaggerate! The last "meat" I attended at GK II M Block in April carried on well past 10-10.30 IIRC. But you'd ducked out giving the same excuse.

Normally, a "meat" starts around 7.30 & carries on till as long there is a "quorum" of 3 (much like Corporate Board meetings )

I think the ones you're referring to which wind up early are the "Meets", not the "Meats". Besides, give the practice a break one Saturday evening........if you could leave your patients in limbo for the All India Road Trip, this is but a few hours on a Saturday evening

Doc, as explained on many an occasion, for guys like us who do an 8 am to 8 pm every day, Sunday is PURE FAMILY DAY (not the Team Bhp family but the actual one). Heck, even Saturday is family day but if its in Gurgaon, no issues........

I wish! My only weekends are on Sunday afternoon onwards, or if I've disappeared from town. I could take an evening off on a weekday, but not working Saturday evenings (and Sunday mornings)...

Sunday is almost everytime a family day and totally devoted to the Family. So it is a no-no for me. Have never ever attended any meet, either of TBHP or of the Scorpio on Sunday and will not.

Meets generally start by 7:30 as mentioned earlier and goes on till 11 pm. While for most a Saturday is a holiday, I work 6 days a week.

I'm inclined for the 4th as it suits me. If you guys are planning for the 5th, then wish you all the best for the meet.

And lest another couple of posts spring up explaining family, I also would like to clarify, the meet as I understand is totally a stag party. Anything other than this, then I might have to reconsider attending..

I've yet to see a traditional meet or meat that finishes by 8pm. And btw, Doc who said that the meat or meet is going to begin at 5 and end by 8? A scan of previous posts, didn't reveal that.

And you suggesting a Sunday meet starting at 2 and ending 7 pm? Main to nahi jhel paoonga..

Aur kaun panch hain yahan aur kinhone kaha ki meat or meet ko 8 baje khatam karo. Meet or meat to tab khatam hoga jab hum chahenge..
