What: Israel’s kebabs, outside Wallace Apartments, Slater Road, Tardeo, call 9167698797, Rs 120 for a chicken kebab sandwich.
Why: Here you’ll find freshly-made kebabs, artisan boursin cheese and small-batch pita pockets, but the sweetest thing about this new street-side eatery is owner and chef, Israel. He’s a hugely entertaining gourmand and traveler with restaurants in Goa and London, and his own cheese-making operation called Say Cheese, which supplies to Indigo, F-Bar and Foodhall at the Palladium. The evening we stopped by, Israel was cooking deliciously peppery chicken kebabs on an open-aired tava, which he tucked into cheese-smeared slices of bread, but he will also serve vegetarian kebabs and potato rolls starting today
When: Chewish fantasy from 6 pm to 10:30 pm daily, but we suggest you call ahead; free kebabs on Saturday, October 6 from 7 pm to 8 pm.
What: Open-air Mr India screening, sign up at www.trabblr.com, in the lane opposite Out of the Blue, Union Park, Khar West, free.
Why: Because Mr India was our favorite movie growing up, and it should have been yours too. Organized by Visual Disobedience and BAP, we expect the screening to get pretty crowded, so make sure you get there early; or you can come hang out on this Scouter’s balcony, which overlooks the screen – we’ll have cookies and beer!
When: See-devi on Sunday, October 7 at 7 pm.
Why: If you go through writer Karuna Ezara Parikh's Spark(ly) Notes, you’ll find sneakers covered in glitter, shiny and rain-proof with laces to match. Also a TV presenter, she started customising high tops as a business after her own DIY project featuring a green-gold pair of shoes grabbed a ton of eye balls. Karuna also does boys, ensuring that their sneakers are less shiny, and jazzes up old canvas shoes at half the price. People with tiny feet (size 4 and below) rejoice, because your shoes are Rs 500 cheaper. Small scale business?
When: You want a sneaker peek.
What: The Class Act at Liberty Cinema, 41/42, ground floor, Liberty Building, near Bombay Hospital, New Marine Lines, book your tickets here, start at Rs 200.
Why: Liberty Cinema is turning out to be quite a free spirit, moving from a single-screen cinema to gig venue to most recently, a live theatre. This weekend, it will host The Class Act, a comic play about an acting instructor and motley group of students. Attendance is mandatory!
When: Sunday, October 7 at 7 pm.
Why: The late Maharani of Alwar’s weekend getaway in the Aravallis gets a king sized makeover, re-launching soon as a 7 acre luxury retreat. Expect a dozen air-conditioned luxury tents (verandah and bathroom included), stabled horses, swimming pool, gourmet meals and most importantly, a well-stocked bar. Those looking for an active vacation – who are you people?! – can also borrow bikes from the hotel and head into Sariska National Park, only a few kilometers away.
When: Crown-sourcing begins in November 2012.
