bpb Contest: We’re giving away 4 couple passes to The Fireflies Festival in Purushwadi organised by Grassroutes Journeys. Check our Twitter feed (@bpbmumbai) at 11.30 am today, May 25 to know more. Contest closes at 7 pm. Details here.
What: B letuce – take-away wraps, bagels and more, shop no 6, Nicholas Society, Shirley Rajan Road, Rizvi Complex, off Carter Road, Bandra (W), call 9867004760, Rs 200 for a smoked salmon wrap, free home delivery in the area.
Why: When a take-away joint can evoke Neruda’s “sedulous cabbage arranging its petticoats”, you know the produce is fresh enough to be poetic. But while the veggies are crisp and the sauces, bright, the men who wrap at this new health joint need strict instructions. For instance: yum Greek Style wrap (ask for less onion), smoked chicken-brown rice roll (more sauce) and orange crème brule (eat as is). Also served are soy shakes, salads, vegan wraps and in-house gelato. Although bagels weren’t available and our bad-batch avocado sandwich was limp, we focussed on the finer details like super food packaging, upside down potted plants and retro Campbell’s tomato soup cans for sale. Full review out on Monday!
When: You want to stay until the bitter gourd end.
What: Private parkour lessons with Free Souls, call Nimrit on 9833950208 / 9920962323 or view the Facebook page here, Rs 3,000 a month (five sessions a week) for a group class and Rs 7,500 per month for personal training.
Why: A pack of five urban ninjas – watch this seriously cool video of them bouncing off a Lonavla fort - want to train you in the art of parkour, a fitness movement that promises “stealth and health”. Call their recently launched collective Free Souls, and they’ll identify a training ground in your neighbourhood with the right set off obstacles, teaching you how to climb, swing, vault and jump. A hip hop indeed.
When: You want to star on 21 Jump Street.
Why: If The Great Gatsby trailer is making you pine for lost love and lavish house parties, call Apetito. Out of a Lower Parel office, Milind and his team import sparkling presse, pretty cordials and gem-coloured cocktail mixers from the UK, and deliver anywhere in Mumbai. Interesting are the Funkin party-packs that feature mojito, strawberry woo woo, pina colada, daiquiri and cosmopolitan cocktail mixes (all you have to do is add alcohol), perfect for home entertaining. You are lime cordial-ly invited.
When: You want the drinks to get you Dizzy Buchanan.
What: Audio cassette pen stands from Green the Gap, ground floor garage, Jewel Milan Apartments, opposite Toto's Garage Pub, Pali Naka, Bandra (W), visit www.greenthegap.com, Rs 200.
