Anniversary Celebrations

Anniversary Celebrations

by

The kids always expect something big for our wedding anniversary celebrations, and it’s usually pretty easy to deliver as our anniversary is just one day prior to Children’s Day in India. So, there’s always something to do.

This year, we opted to do the Sunday brunch at Limelight in Royal Orchid Hotel off Airport Road.

Made With Janus Brandy

Last weekend, I was down with a very bad cough and cold. As I prepared to reach for my trusty Benadryl for some relief, K suggested that brandy would make a better alternative.

I have had a bottle of Janus Brandy in my pantry for quite some time lying unopened – ever since the Janus Brandy event, and it was definitely more tempting to have a glass of brandy than a thimbleful of cough medicine.

A Tea Tour At Sancha Tea Boutique

Sancha Tea House in Bangalore is a bright and airy space tucked away in a corner of Lavelle Road, so small from the outside, you can barely see it. A friend and fellow blogger Soumya was invited for a tea tasting session here, and she kindly invited me to tag along with her, so one extremely hot Saturday afternoon, we went up and down Lavelle Road trying to find a parking spot, and trying to find this place, amongst all the teeny tiny boutiques over there.

Kalmane Koffees has long been a favorite hangout of mine. It’s the only place in a mall, I’ve found where you get excellent filter coffee without the sugar premixed in (I loathe sugar in my coffee).

So, when I got an email saying that the Kalmane Koffees in VR Mall had just undergone a makeover, and would I like to come and take a look, and try out their coffees, I jumped at the opportunity.

Sula wines recently presented all the alcohol that are under their umbrella in a roadshow recently.

As you can imagine, it was one massive exhibition with a huge number of brands showcasing their wines and liquors that they work with. Experts from all over the world – Brazil, Argentina, the south of France, all were there keen to explain to us what makes their wine different, and how they make it.

Hangover on 12th Main Road in Indra Nagar celebrated its first anniversary recently, and they did it in style with a lovely printed invite to our house. Hangover does some marvelous alcohol, so in spite of release deadlines and everything, we cleared up our calendars for the evening to go visit.
