What: Three Wise Men, Sujata Building, opposite Santacruz Police Station, Santacruz (W), call 9821078550, Rs 165 for a pint of Kingfisher.
Why: We’re not sure we’d like to drink ourselves silly so close to a cop station (it’s right across the street), but drink we must this Friday as Three Wise Men opens in Santacruz. They promise to come bearing gifts – international beers, rock music, appetisers cooked by an ex 212 chef (Ketan Kadam manages the place) and the promise of a burger list. The space resembles an English pub with brick walls and antique clocks, but we’re not big fans of this ceiling art, so don’t get too high.
When: Trio carnival opens this Friday, March 23.
What: The Hab, G-1, 444, Corporate Lounge, Linking Road, Khar (W), call 61274444, buttons start at Rs 15 for a small pack, Rs 400 for a basic 5-day sewing class.
Why: If your needle has an eye for all things cool, bring it to The Hab, a plush new craft lounge that’s trying to make sewing hip (see a Manish Arora psychedelic sewing machine in the shop window). Here you’ll find borders and buttons, stones and sequins, spools of threads, wool and art kits. There are also a DIY area where you can have a go on the sewing machines, plus an upstairs demo room (workshops start in April) and library with titles like Doodle Stitching and Vogue Knitting.
When: You want to brown paper bag that stitch!
What: Red Velvet Cake Pops from SugarOverDose, call Amal on 9821561159 or view the Facebook page here, Rs 30 per piece, pick up from Khar (E), no home delivery.
Why: If it weren’t for the many boys in her life, Amal would have called herself the Sweet Tooth Fairy. It’s too girlie, they complained, and thus was born a home bakery that tells your worries to ‘SOD’ off – short for SugarOverDose. From the menu we tried cake pops, tall sticks topped with balls of delish moist red velvet cake, coated in white chocolate and pretty sprinkles. Less drool-worthy were caramel and super-saccharine strawberry pops.
When: You want to take the 40 Licks tour.
Why: Hunter Thompson would approve of photographer Khyati Dodhia’s Rum Diary – a rust-colour leather journal with hand drawn booze bottle that is apparently stitched using five needles simultaneously. Inside, on handmade paper, you can keep track of that large unpaid bar tab that Thompson calls “a fashionable burden”.
When: You need sticky notes.
What: Le Cirque’s one night restaurant at Stella, The Leela Mumbai, Sahar, call 66911211 / 9769178248, Rs 7,500 per person without alcohol.
Why: Bring out the confiti for this French-European restaurant that comes to Mumbai for one night only, bringing with it a predictably pricey meal. Expect four courses cooked by Le Cirque Delhi’s chef Mickey Bhoite – table sightings will include scallops thermidor and slow cooked lamb saddle- at Rs 7,500 per head. Foie gasp!
When: You need to continue Le Cirque-le of life. On Saturday, March 24.
