Why: Imagine opening the door to a trunk full of clothes and accessories from hard-to-find designers (Frock NYC, James Ferreira, Denim Story), especially tailored to your taste by New York stylist and jewelry designer Anita Vaswani. Browse through these while lounging on your bed, laughing at all those suckers out in the rain. What you like, you leave hanging in your closet; the rest you return. It’s (gar)ment to be!
When: You want a flat rate.
What: Juben Wine Cellar and Tasting Room, 2nd floor, Shoppers’ Stop, Juhu, call 9867280003 or view the Facebook group here, start at Rs 400 for a bottle.
Why: Our favourite neighbourhood booze store just graduated to a plush, all-white beer and wine cellar where you can try before you buy. Also taste eight new wines every fortnight under the guidance of sommelier Abhas Saxena, and put in suggestions for theme samplings based on country, colour or grape. Jolly good cellar!
When: Tastings begin next week.
What: Rap 101: Lessons in freestyle rap, call 9890532996 or visit www.mcsid.in, start at Rs 2,000 for basic two-hour course.
Why: bpb Invent! Let rapper M.C. Sid – he opened for Akon in Mumbai – help you pick up hos with your prose. At his basic workshop, you’ll get a lesson in grammar and poetry through Eminem and Jay Z tracks, followed up by practical sessions in freestyle battles, dissing and improv verses. Curses encouraged.
When: You need to develop a new sintax.
What: Outpour of tees at Adam + Eve, shop no 5, Ashok Apartments, Union Park, Khar (W), call 26485162, Rs 750.
Why: This Bandra boutique is no Garden of Eden, but it can definitely perform one miracle: turning wine into 100% cotton. Here, super comfy men’s tees printed with robots and army tanks come in pop coloured wine bottles. Holy smock!
When: You want to bless your cart.
What: Fresh fruit butter, Moshe’s Cafe, next door to Indigo Deli, Colaba, call 22020934, Rs 95 for 250 gms.
Why: Muffins, biscuits, even your tired old toast – these fruity butters can wake up the most boring breakfast. bpb loves the lemon flavor, but they come in kiwi, apricot and pineapple as well.
When: You want to make the zest of what’s around.
