What: The Daily, ground floor, Suburbia Building, behind Shoppers’ Stop, Linking Road, Bandra (W), Rs 180 for a Kingfisher pint, cocktails start at Rs 350.

First on bpb!: Dishant and Amrit have been collecting newspaper clippings of good news for a while now. Hard as it is to find, they have a heap, framed in rose wood and hanging from the ceiling of their new bar called The Daily, where “good news and good times are waiting”. Inspired by Mad Men’s rich, vintage feel, the space has been designed by Busride Designs and done entirely in rosewood, a glass partition separating the outside and inside sections. While the food will not be restricted to bar snacks – the owners recommend you get the steak, pork burger, and fries with minced meat – the drink list includes smoked martinis and prohibition era cocktails. Full review coming soon!

When: Your Daily fix slated to start on February 20.

Note: Read our review of Mad Bites, Bombay's new midnight food delivery service.

The just-launched Peddar Road-based Cookie  Garage comes to us from Renisha and Vicky, a lawyer and trained teacher who moved back from Singapore and New York and started selling cookies. Because you know, “everyone’s doing cupcakes”. bpb also devoured the yum whole wheat chocolate chunk and thin, elegant cheese spice cookies. The cornflake crunch wasn’t a favourite at the office, but throw in a glass of cold milk and we’ll talk again.

Start training with Savio’s Slaves, a half and full marathon training group that congregates at Nariman Point every morning  with batches for beginners and advanced runners. Headed by Savio, a 58 year-old former athlete who has represented India at international track and field events, he will guide you with your breathing and running technique, and also dispense tips on pacing, nutrition and hydration. Besides motivating each other, group members also plan post-run social activities.
