Attractions will include interaction with the chef and his delish Thai curry (and popcorn shrimp, red snapper, chocolate fondant) as well as the chance to meet 20 cool strangers.

What: Dhansak and more by Bhonu: Delicacies by A Parsi Aunty, call Rashna Maneckshaw on 9867589828 or visit the Facebook group here, Rs 500 for lunch plus Rs 100 delivery charge, order one day in advance.
Why: We write this post, dear reader, after a greedy plundering of chicken farcha and dhansak dal, mutton biryani and soft rotis, eggs on bhaaji and caramel custard, all of which was delivered to us in neat little boxes this afternoon. Apart from her lunch menu, which varies from day to day, Rashna Aunty can also make pickles, marzipan, prawn balchow and other Parsi treats on order. Oh, sigh-rus!
When: You want to take on a custard-y battle.
What: Monthly Vinyl Club by NH7 and Zenzi at Zenzi, Waterfield Road, Bandra (W), free entry.
Why: Vinyl and dine at Zenzi this Sunday to celebrate the first of NH7’s thematic vinyl music sessions. Bring your own record - this month’s theme is the 60s – and join a community that hopes to rock the club’s turn tables, exchange vinyls and return to the “physical, more human side of music”. And for the record: food and drinks will be discounted.
When: Scratch to win on March 20, noon to 4 pm.
What: Angdai Day Spa at Le Sutra Hotel, Union Park, Khar (W), call 26492995, Rs 450 for a 30 minute foot reflexology.
Why: If an oasis and an art gallery had a baby, Angdai would be it. Go gaga over this cute mini-spa housed at Bandra’s hip art hotel, one that just about fits in a single massage booth, chair, zen fountain and two therapists. Ask for the very deft hands of Rojee and choose from kneads, facials and body wraps (foot reflexology with scented massage wax is value for money).
When: You need pampers.
Event Round-up: Omakase & Sake dinner at San-Qi, Four Seasons on March 18, 7 pm; Red Bull Academy Club Nights on March 18 & 19 at Blue Frog, 10 pm; Maya Burman shows at Arts Musings, Colaba, until April 9.
