    This was definitely the best holiday party I've ever attended! A wonderful group of people and the venue was awesome. The singing and dancing was tons of fun. I can't wait to start planning the next party now that I know we have some professional singers as part of our group!!

    Great time...thanks organizers. But, what happened with the gift exchange? I guess it was too crazy to play the white elephant game...next time.

    This party will go on until 12pm. I will request the resturant owner to keep it open until later. Since this is a resturant you guys can go there earler if you like. Karaoke will not start until 9:30pm. Again I can request for it to start early, not sure if that will happen.. I will try to get there early if I can. Feel free to go there early if you want to. You can certainly go to bar area and order drinks etc. Remember that it is a restaurant and if you go there early please order something.

    The idea is to exchange gifts in the holiday spirit. The gifts does not have to be expensive, under $10, some ideas are scented candles etc...Michael's is a good place to get nice inexpensive holiday gifts..If guests do not want to participate, it is okay..what do you think, Amita?

    Hey Karuna! Do the guests coming with us also need to bring gifts?

    December 13, 2011

  • Karuna

    Robert, honestly you need to start watching a few Bollywood movies so u can recognize the guy in the picture..A simple search on goggle with keyword Indian boutique etc may solve your problem. There are some Indian boutiques in silver spring. There is one boutique in Rockville on 355 in the same strip mall as IHOP.
