Friday Night Full Tight*

*Friday Night Full Tight loosely translates to “got wrecked” in America speak.

Friday night turned out to be quite an epic evening (by which I mean we eventually ended up at Bling.) Starting off with an entertaining stand up act called “Around the World in 80 minutes” by Jonathan Atherton who does a fair amount of cultural mimickery amid his mostly self-effacing humor. (I find Mumbai laughs loud and easily at most stand up comics. We’re good like that.) The only slightly uncomfortable silence during the show was when he (rather seriously) mentioned that abused women make better lovers. Followed by no punchline. Er… Spotted Lara Dutta, Rajat Kapoor, Anubhav Pal and Rahul Da Cunha all in for the gig as well.

After the show we all headed over to Zenzi for drinks where I ran into a very pretty Juhi Pande and an equally friendly Abhay Deol. It’s impossible to dislike anyone with dimples I feel. He was really sweet about posing for these pictures and (as is my fate) must have assumed I was a fan. I kinda am now.

So we ended up going from Zenzi to Shiro to Oba to Polly to Bling (where after they shut for the general public I think they reopened for Sohail Khan and crew.) Luckily this time we made it home before dawn and woke up the next afternoon and went straight to Salt Water Cafe for lunch. Yum. As we were leaving we spotted this heavily guarded ride. Wonder who’s it is. Anyone?

But Pappu Can Salsa Saala!

Have you seen Fashion? Well you know the funny guy who plays Priyanka Chopra’s gay best friend (he’s growing up to be the next Boman Irani in my opinion) got married last week over a heady mix of celebrations. Apart from having absolutely brilliant comic timing Ashwin Mushran is also quite the salsa star, so of course his wedding extravaganza featured a most unique Salsa-Sangeet!

Perhaps you’ve seen them, there are a whole bunch of die hard salsa fans including Sophie Chaudry, Ishita Arun & Suneeta Rao in Mumbai led by Kaytee Namgyal from the Salsa India Dance Company who hang out at Zenzi (Bandra) on Sunday evenings – and now Dragonfly (Nariman Point) on Wednesday’s too. At the wedding they pulled off an extraordinary Bollywood inspired medley with some killer Latin dance moves along with a good measure of desi jhatkas to boot!

If you get a chance, swing by this week to Dragonfly and watch them in action. (Whether you fancy a twirl yourself or just want to watch some seriously talented social spinning – everyone’s invited.)
