When: Scuba suit up! Another supper club rises to the surface, this one helmed by closet cooks Pawan and Megha.

What: Silk-screened tees from Pardon My Hindi, order online at http://pardonmyhindi.com, approximately Rs 1,350 plus shipping.
Why: Finally, we’re getting beyond kitsch. San Fransisco-based artist Chiraag Bhakta combines the tired old elements of the million design brands that have cropped up recently - printed T-shirt, desi icons, moustachioed men in turbans – and comes up with this fresh new tee in collaboration with Das Racist, a rap trio from New York. Wear you at?!
When: You want to view the Motherland from the other land.
What: Love Sugar Dough, ground floor, Bajaj Arcade, Union Park, Khar (W).
Why: Last week, the Secret Scouters’ radar caught a candy-coloured sign board for a new Bandra bakery – and right next to Butterfly cupcakes! Is that a fat fight we smell? After several investigations, what unravelled is a mystery sweeter than Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s. Love Sugar Dough is this new establishment’s name, and it will house a mezzanine serving finger food like kebabs, tikkas and a special kind of Biryani, along with a bakery doling out croissants, cupcakes, cream cakes and more. It’s elementary, dear Watson.
When: Opens late next week.
What: Bow ties by urvshe at Azaad Bazaar, 16th/33rd Road, Bandra (W), opposite Mini Punjab, call 9930212636, start at Rs 300.
Why: Embellished with lace, beads, sequins and even bright pink feathers, bpb loves the just-arrived batch of bowties at Azaad Bazaar. You can wear them around your neck or as a brooch, but we plan to do ours as a garter belt with a really, really short skirt. Bow Derrick!
When: Now, for the neck of it.

Why: This new website wants to sponsor you and 23 other people on a three month journey around the country. The catch?
