bpb Contest: We’re giving away seven WittyGift boxes. Check our Twitter feed (@bpbmumbai) at 11.30 am today (Friday, February 10) to know more. Contest closes at 7 pm.
What: Jumjoji, shop no. 4, Ankleshwar building, ONGC Colony, Bandra Reclamation, Bandra (W), 26516156, Rs 1100 for a meal for two.
Why: This one’s no Café Britannia, but Jumjoji with its efficient service and plush décor is a different way to enjoy Parsi food in Mumbai. Here, recipes are sourced from different Parsi aunties – get Zenobia’s sausages and chicken curry – lagan nu custard is all dressed up for Diwali. Read the full review here.
When: Homi is where the heart is.
What: Carnivorous plants at Vriksha nursery, 1 Ganga Apartments, Irla Railway Society, Vile Parle (W), call 9820704069 or view the Facebook page here, Rs 2,000 for a pitcher plant.
Why: The perfect anti-rose, this fierce bug-eating pitcher plant is the sharpest way to say you care. But with only 15 of its kind ordered in to the nursery every month, we suggest you get in on the action soon. Maybe you’ll catch a bite this season, and if you’re lucky, a swallow.
When: You need a lady(bug) killer.
Why: If your relationships are teaching you nothing, get involved with La Profesora, a cool new door-to-door Spanish teacher. With over four years of teaching experience, Alysha is also a DELE (Diploma de Español como Lengua Extranjera) qualified professor, corporate trainer and interpreter. She customises her lessons depending on each student’s needs, and judging from the Facebook group, uses tees with Spanish typos and Pedro Almodovar movies as teaching aids. Imagine the learning curve!
When: You have a Hola! in your heart. Lessons on weekdays and weekends.
What: Light Surgeons' audio visual show at Edward Theatre, Kalbadevi, entry tickets for Rs 200 and Rs 300, available on bookmyshow.com.
Why: This week, the Light Surgeons (a collective of designers and filmmakers who’ve developed visuals for The Rolling Stones, U2) bring their trippy video show to Mumbai, operating out of the lovely, crumbling Edward theatre. Buy a ticket and you’ll be treated to LDN-REDUX, shots of London city set to electronic music. Big seedy lights!
When: See and score today, February 10, 9 pm onwards.
What: Branded Bargains for men and women, F-49, second floor, Trident Hotel, (Oberoi Towers), Nariman Point, call 9820143553 for an appointment or visit the website, Rs 16,000 for a Tod’s bag.
Why: The newly opened Branded Bargains is where old LVs come to find new love. Here’s how it works: Those looking to discard can bring their designer loot to owner Fatima who will estimate a value, retail it at her store and take a commission once it’s sold. Or, you can choose only to browse through the discounted merchandise, currently a skinny collection of sunglasses, bags, belts and wallets. Best bargains: white Tod’s bag for Rs 16,000 (originally Rs 34,000) and men’s black leather Valentino belt with box for Rs 16,000 (originally Rs 25,000).
When: You want to catch wind of trade.
