Why don't we try new places like somewhere on the way to Haridwar like Cheetal/Cheetal Grand in Khatauli or some place on Nh8 en route Jaipur ?
I'm open to suggestions for other places too which I may be missing..
I know a good dhaba in Palwal, but Mathura Road after Faridabad is a royal mess. Cheetal is meh, I always stop at the Haldiram plaza a few km ahead. Haldiram, McDonald’s, Subway, Keventers, Naivedyam all in a single complex, along with many smaller stalls. Something for everyone. But again, this road is also choc a block with unruly local traffic. The whole point of Jewar was the expressway and the stress free driving. In fact, I won’t mind if we go all the way to Agra for brunch and come back. You know, that chaat waali street in Sadar Bazar near the cantt area. Then there is always Dasaprakash for those looking for something healthier.

The Haldiram complex at Bawal can also be an option.

Hi Akhil,

There was a plan to create such a group but this is against the forum's policies. No such group exists now.

Any future meets will be planned on this forum only.

Alright,

So how does the morning of 17th October sound like for the drive and meet up?

18th works as well. For places I would request suggestions from fellow BHPians.

Cool.. While driving to Haridwar last Saturday, I noticed some really nice food courts/malls near Khatauli/Muzaffarnagar. Attaching a pic for reference. But yes, you'll have to navigate your way through some truck traffic during evening/night time. Else you can do some good speeds of 120kmph easily without worrying about speed cameras.

I was wondering if we should move it to next weekend considering it's quite short notice and a lot of us will get time to clear their weekends and come up with a better plan?

Sure. A week's time will be enough for people to make up their minds. I'm game for 24th Oct Saturday.

Let's pitch in ideas for possible venues in the meantime and thereafter add all participating members' names, as decided with time.

up for the meet, IMO dhabas and restaurants are a bit risky at these times. Lets just plan a meet in old school ways. Drag races on controlled empty stretches. What do you think? would be immense fun ! I know such places in Rohini.

As Slickshift said, restaurants are risky given the current situation so till the time its just a drive, i'm definitely in.

Sure we can evaluate all options. I am up for either option

24th or 25th both are good for me.

My personal opinion here is a drive to Jewar, for coffee at Starbucks. Really don’t want to navigate unruly local traffic on GT Karnal Road or on Haridwar highway.
