What: Sancho’s, plot number 604, Pinnacle House, off Linking Road, next to Cafe Mangii, Bandra (W), call 67094445, Rs 2,000 for a meal for two (without alcohol).
Why: Even the most die-hard South Bombayites will want to immigrate for this one. Delhi-based Mexican restaurant Sancho’s salsas its way into a cute Bandra compound, complete with mud-caked walls, habanero chilies and churros to die for. Get in on our sneak peek here.
When: You want a new pecking border. Slated to open today, November 12, but call ahead to confirm.
What: Kitsch, 48 Dr V. B. Gandhi Marg, Kalaghoda, call 66153344, frightfully expensive.
Why: Our second offering from the Dallys! The space that once housed Muse gets a costume change with this Capital fashion store featuring international labels like Lanvin, McQueen and Stella McCartney. Kick-off includes a trunk show by Elise Overland, designer to Britney Spears (yikes!) and Anne Hathaway.
When: Opening and trunk show on Saturday, November 13. Bring it, Kitsch!
What: Three Vices from Design Bait, call +91 9910270689 or visit www.designbait.com, price on request.
Why: Designer Srishti Bajaj’s guinea pigs have taken great pains to ensure that her leather-lined brass torture devices work well. Sin your hopes on the creepy-cool Tongue Reign to curb excessive profanity, Tempula Point for the super verbose and Horn Mouth for malicious gossips. Buy for self use, quirky gifting, shelf embellishment or plain repentance. Also see her super cute handcart conference room table, displayed at Out of the Blue until November 13.
When: Now, because it’s torment to be.
What: Busaba’s Aficionado Club Card, 4 Mandlik Road, Colaba, call Gary on 9833562165, Rs 6,125 for a year.
Why: Because after years of loving Busaba, it finally loves us back. On a recent lunch trip we unearthed this Asian restaurant’s closely guarded secret: not the recipe of their spicy green sauce (yet), but a diner’s card which, for close to Rs 6,000, gets members 50%, 33% and 25% off on meals for two, three and four people respectively for an entire year. Bonus: 20% off on takeaway.
When: You want to khau sway.
Why: Sign up for one of Jungle Lore’s wildlife vacations - Kanha, Bandhavgarh, Ranthambore, Gir, Bahartpur, Tadoba - and you can send home a postcard with tails of feral rides, bird brains, tribal dances, luxury tent stays, vine-swinging and tiger spotting (wanna Corbett on that?). Large groups are accompanied by local naturalists and conservationists, and they customise individual trips too.
When: Next trip to Ranthambore from December 8 to 12.
Event Round up: Literature Live from November 12 to 14 at NCPA; Mumbai Wine Tasting Festival 2010 from November 12 to 14 at Radio Club; and Vir Das (History of India VIRtten) at Sophia Bhabha Auditorium on November 14 at 7.30 pm, call 23678550.
