So, as day becomes night and night becomes day tomorrow, I’ll be on a train from New Haven barreling towards Grand Central Station. Why? For the desi bloggers meetup in Manhattan of course. I am calling it Manhattan Masala, but I am sure we’ll come up with something more elegant over the course of a meal and few drinks.
The venue is Bay Leaf. The time, 1.30 p.m. So far 26 of you have RSVP’d on time (deadline was March 31). Those who are emailing me today – sorry, we would love to accommodate you next year (or sooner). Space at the restaurant is really tight and we have only till 3 p.m. to meet, greet and eat.
The weather is set to be wet, so wear a poncho, carry an umbrella, do a rain dance or whatever catches your fancy. Rain or shine, we are going to be there.
As I said, the first two bloggers to get there receive a copy of Pooja Makhijani’s book, Under Her Skin.
To see who is coming, you will have to surf to my site – Tiffinbox – and look in the right column under Manhattan Masala for the names of bloggers and the number of guests they are bringing. I am looking forward to putting faces to URLs. [Thanks JD!]
