Shopping, Movies, Laughter and Storytelling make up your weekend to-do list!
Let go, get with the MBRB program and let us plan this weekend for you!
Watch: If you haven’t already, then make sure you find time for Rajat Kapoor’s luminous Ankhon Dekhi this weekend. You will laugh, you will cry, you will scream in recognition. This may just be an early contender for our movie of the year!
Walk: The Delhi Heritage Photography Club is walking in and around the Chor Minar at Hauz Khas this weekend, and if you have always wanted to learn about your city from the experts, or to take some lovely snapshots before it gets too hot to venture out, join them at 10:00 am on Sunday morning.
Watch: The American Center ends its’ Women’s History Month Film Festival with Ghost World this Saturday Evening- a lovely movie starring a young Thora Birch and Scarlett Johansson,and with this priceless melding of Bollywood and Indie-Hollywood.
Eat and Drink: Try the Hi Tea at Cafe 88, Lodhi Gardens with tea-expert Anamika Khanna and multiple rounds of chai and nibbles and conversations.
Shop: Provoke/Protect: Sarees against Rape- Women from Dharavi got together to produce some absolutely stunning cotton and silk sarees with messages against sexual harassment appliquéd onto them. An exhibition and sale of these sarees ends at The Artisans Center in Kala Ghoda this Saturday.
Shop: The Vintage Garden has its annual pre-summer pop up sale in Bandra West this weekend. Exhibitors include The Retyrement Plan (love their chairs), Radio Rani and Folkloric. An excellent afternoon if you’d like to stock up on ze pretty zings for your wardrobe or home.
Laugh: With Kunal Rao, Neville Shah and Sahil Shah at the Canvas Laugh Factory in Palladium Mall either Saturday or Sunday evening.
Kids: A Summer Story Day organised by Bookalore this Saturday brings in three children’s authors (one of whom wrote house favourite Snoring Shanmugam!) and tons of arts and crafts activities from 10:30-12:30 am on Saturday morning at Ulsoor.
Escape: Most of the Bangalore Mountaineering Club’s events for the weekend are booked (though you can always call and check for cancellations!), but make sure you enlist for next weekend’s Scuba Diving and Snorkeling expedition to the Netrani Islands.
From Your Couches
Shop: We love Siddhant Beniwal’s Batik Scarves on sale at Jaypore from March 27-April 17. If you want to gift us one mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org (wink/wink). If you end up buying one just for yourself, send us a picture so we may indulge in some second hand buyer’s envy!
Stay safe, have fun, eat as much chocolate as is humanly possible, share MBRB with your friends, and come back on Monday morning for more from us!
