Why: If love hurts then fight back with bpb’s sharpest pick: A super-edgy steel card with saw blade, knife edge, butterfly wrench, cap and can opener, screwdriver and ruler cutouts.
When: You want to meet the love of your knife.
What: Single on Board car stickers, Wishing Tree, Ganga Vihar, C Road, Marine Drive, call 9987173056, Rs 200.
Why: Because you’re in need of a partner, and you’re too broke to take out a full page ad. These stickers are eye-catching, funny and may actually help you pick up a pillion. Hey, you never know, right?
When: You need a pimp for your ride.
What: Champagne on the cheap, The Den wine bar, Shop no 3 & 4, Prabhat Kunj, 24th Road, next to Elbo Room, Bandra (W), call 26483136, cocktails for Rs 250.
Why: The wine-steins over at brand new Den – another bpb scoop! - stock over 55 labels of vino and champagne. These are coupled with hazelnut, blue curacao, lychee and more treats to make affordable, yummy cocktails. Bpb loves: The cask-shaped tables, Chilean imports, spicy Arabiatta and alternate rock playlist.
When: You want chic for cheap: a wine-wine situation.
What: Short Note serenading workshop, call Kunal Basu on 9819758134, see his MySpace page here, Rs 1,000 for two sessions.
Why: bpb invent! You may not have the time (or talent) to become the next John Mayer, but the guitar guru who invented Chord Wizard is giving you a shortcut to getting some. Love. Even if you’ve never held a guitar before, his two session workshop will teach you how to play your partner’s favourite love songs. You can also opt for his standard tracklist - When you Say Nothing at All, Wonderful Tonight, I’d Love you to Want Me, Stand by Me, Love Me Do.
When: You want to (almost) Pay Nothing at All.
Why: Because applied artist Manas Kunder’s jaggedy, Tim Burton-esque graphics are a breath of fresh air in a kitschy-rickshaw choked market. You can buy his pre-made T-shirts and bags, or better yet, have him draw on your favorite objects: vinyl records, sheath dresses, bedroom wall.
When: You want to start a pen drive.
