BMG Unplugged No, I am not a woman of slangs and acronyms but some experiences can be best elucidated in such ‘new age’ lingo. If you’ve had enough of the ‘KP-Mundhwa’ and ‘Baner-Balewadi’ spheres in the city then Amanora houses a rather gigantic surprise. BMG Unplugged is a compelling new catch in the city.

Independence Brewing Company, Mundhwa Why would you go to a brewery if you don’t drink? I am asked this question, often in a condescending tone.

1 BHK, Baner The authenticity of butter chicken has inarguably faced the most twisted logic of all times. While the ‘real butter chicken’, that which originated in Punjabi households up North is anything but sweet.

Barbeque Ville The invite for the Seafood Festival currently hosted by Barbeque Ville (Wakad) had me intrigued. My love for seafood is sublime, so much so that I readily drove to the alien streets and corners of Wakad (Yes, I have no clue about the geography of Pune beyond Baner) to satisfy my hankerings for fish. The joy of gorging on luscious prawns and the mere thought of crab  gets[…]

Walls have artistic imprints[…]
