Weekend Chronicles – Blood Beer, Egg Rolls & Parties

So this weekend was crazy! We had multiple parties to celebrate Ritika’s & my father-in-law’s birthdays. So this time, we started clebrations on Thursday itself wherein post work we went to my in-laws’ where there was some awesome Jamesons Irish Whiskey & my favorite bhajiyas (vegeteable fritters) made for dinner. Post a fun drunk evening we wrapped the day as next day was work; though fortunately, we were in south bombay as there were some meetings to be attended. Morning bike ride started the day which was past Marine Drive & Nariman Point. Then through the day M&M happened (Meetings & Mails). Evening again was at the in-laws where in full on dhamal happened as both families were at full strength and there was a Pani Puri/Chaat vendor who’d come home who was serving food to all and then obviously there was loads of beers, whiskey, vodka & crazy bollywood music & dancing. Also it was Ritika’s birthday so there were crazy drunk calls which happened.

Our Bikes!

Das Boot & Ritika!

Also, on Friday, Ekta, my sister-in-law who taught me how to ride my awesomely cool bike, had planned a roadtrip off the Royal Enfield website to Pune so Saturday morning I went with her to dadar to give her company which was fun! Oh Ekta was not on any of the featured posts in the past few weeks as we had a falling out of sorts (though now things are better); post seeing her off, rode past Shivaji Park, Worli & got back home.The plan then was to go shopping with Rachita, though instead we ended up going to the in-laws again as my folks needed the car to go to the doctor. Chilled at peddar road till about 30 minutes past noon, had Blood Beer with Vishal, the pictures for the same are below. Went home, slept a bit, then we were meeting Ritika who was coming for like a mini birthday celebration. Also, Rachita had made the most awesome egg-roll frankie ever for dinner so the evening was showing killer promise. General chilling happened with Darira & then towards the end of the evening & before she left we did Southern Comfort Shots between Vishal, her & me which was too much fun! Also used some crazy shotglasses from my collection of over 100 to do the same… Then the inlaws came over for awesome egg-roll frankie, post which we watched Vampire Diaries & called it a night…

World’s Best Egg Roll!

Sunday morning which normally is bike clean-up day was overshadowed by the rain which was a bummer, though the bike got cleaned courtesy the rains :-). Most of the day was then spent lazing in bed & watching movies. We saw an awesome animated cartoon inspired from the game, Dragon Age; then watched Supernatural season 5 & Vampire Diaries season 3. Finally, post eating the amazing egg roll again, we ended the day by watching the Akshay Kumar – Sonakshi Sinha starrer, Rowdy Rathore, which was pretty entertaining with some awesome dialogues and funny scenes. All in all, too much fun!!!

Blood Beer!

Blood Beer Recipe:

1) Beer by the Pint (my suggestion a strong beer).

2) Rasberry Soda (my suggestion Rogers, if that isn’t there then buy a local one).

3) Mix about 25ml of Rasberry Soda in about a Pint of beer mix well.

4) Drop a few cubes of ice and blood beer is ready!

Incidence & Coincidence

Friday evening, decided to go to the local drinking hole, Mini Club House with Mihir & Vishal; on reaching there, was told the place was shut and would open by 7pm. Oh! here i forgot to mention we went there by 4pm. Decided to dunk the idea of drinking out, saved some money and decided to drink at home. Bought Haywards 5000, went home, got shit-faced and closed the day.

St7 Totally Superb!

The Saturday morning bike ride as always, was past worli seaface, shivaji park, upto bandra reclamation and then back to nariman point; though on the way back, an interesting incident happened wherein, past shivaji park I noticed a Hyosung St7 – dude! that’s one killer bike! Like an excited kid, I started chasing the bike. This is where it got interesting – wherein the St7 rider and I started riding together without uttering a word. This was so super awesome! We also had enough people staring at us past prabhadevi and century bazaar. Finally, before he went his way at passport office and I went towards city bakery, we gave each other a thumbs up & cruised away… Total feeling of brotherhood had happened!

Pretty Average Pizzeria

That’s Vibha

Got home, decided to go to Pizzeria, a local pizza joint at marine-drive. They serve the most awesome Bombay masala pizza (regular cheese pizza with Indian herbs). Reaching pizzeria, we realized the place has been totally re-done and looked quite cool; the same, though, could not be said about their service and food as it was horrifying – firstly the service and then the food. They have changed the recipe for the Bombay Masala Pizza… Immediately called up a Shlok (friend) with whom we have eaten 5 Bombay Masala’s and have been regulars to this restaurant. Spammed social media about the disappointment and the general stuff.Also note Shlok has a Royal Enfield Twin Spark 350cc.  Coincidentally, also met  my old boss and friend, Vibha, who was visiting the place as well. She also had a feeling where she thought she would meet me (premonition moment)! Cribbed to her also about the service and food, then took a photo of hers to feature on this write up check the same 🙂 Post that, came home & crashed.

This is Sensational!

Evening was spent eating amazing frankie made by the Mrs. Also ate icecream bon bons and watched Gone starring Amanda Sefried to end the day. Sunday morning’s bike ride was past lower parel, dadar and back. Also took Mihir for some photography to marine-drive, grant road vegetable market and mahalakshmi. He also went to haji Ali Durga which was fun and scary & he is going to have a post on the same with some awesome photo’s soon. Most of the day was spent watching movies & lazing in bed having Caronas. Saw Runnning Man starring Arnold, a bit of Supernatural & then watched Limitless starring Bradly Cooper which was brilliant to end the day. Started off Monday by hating them i.e. Monday’s. Post that brilliant bike ride happened as the weather was awesome & to make the day interesting, have dinner planned at the in-laws. Hopefully, I won’t hate Mondays that much this week 🙂
