Raindance at the Club’s bar Night on Friday,June 10,2011

TGIF….began with a first time ever ‘Raindance’ at the Club Bar Night on Friday….great music,great ambience,great food spread by ‘Culinary Catering’…Starters and Burmese Khow Suey…. and ‘Maroosh’…Kebabs and Wraps…. and the Club…Biryani and Pao Bhaji…..and some great crowd of 1000+ streaming in even past midnight……so there we were mingling with the 20 somethings…average age would be in the 20s…quite a few of us did our bit to raise it by being there !…. was warned,though did not heed, by my 20 something son “Go early and come back early !…don’t be there when I’m there !” ….my wife did have a comment or two to make on the young women at the scene….. on their dress sense,or rather a lack of it, and that drinking and smoking does not appear taboo any longer….hip and hep and happening and normal actually…..and guys don’t seem to mind all of this ofcourse !…..It’s Wet,Wicked and Wild !…..well within decency norms though….though the definition of decency norms are relative…. the inside airconditioned pub and dining room were packed tot the hilt… but the outside Main Lawns and Patio was the place to be…..It was Pouring,though superb arrangements were made for artifical rain too…eight shower hoses hoisted on long poles ,four on either side of a makeshift wooden dancefloor,to protect the grass, across the width of the Main Lawns leading to the Golf Course where tankers feeding the hoses and hidden from view were parked……and my friend and I were the first to hit the Raindance Area…Thoughtfully huge Club Towels too were provided….was Fun,though we exited just past midnight leaving the place to younger revellers to enjoy till the wee hours…was introduced to a Catamaran Owner…an interesting ‘Hangover’ movie type of guy…he’s wants to build a Marina at Alibag…currently his Boat is anchored at the Gateway…airconditioned and can carry 15 easily….says he sails to Goa on just the wind and no fuel consumption…just fuel otherwise can set one back by a lakh on just one trip by a yatch….though right now the sea is off bounds due to Monsoon setting in   read more
