Bollywood Bash in Victor, Friday, April 5th

  • April 5, 2013 · 6:30 PM

Bollywood Bash

On Friday, April 5, 2013, one of our members will be hosting a pot-luck dinner and Bollywood movie at his house (near Victor, NY) starting at 6:30pm.  The Bollywood movie will be a combination of romance, comedy, action, lots of dance and music, and a long, winding story (2-3 hours) resembling a soap opera, very entertaining for the most part.  There will be English subtitles. We will start the movie as soon as it gets dark outside. But still it can go until 10:30 or 11:00. So, people should plan accordingly.

The suggested menu below will let you know what to expect for food.    If you have any food allergies, pay close attention to your choices from the menu.  Choose an item on the list and publicly post your choice (by number) on the message board for the event, or your RSVP response.

For any new sign-ons (guests 11 - 15) , bring a dessert or a item comparable to the ones below:

1. (Brian)   Veggie Tray w/ dip  (Brian)

2. (Chris C) Appetizer and white wine  (Chris C)

3. (Kam)   Paper plates, napkin, plastic forks/knives/spoons, drinks cups, bowls  (Kam)

4. (Barb)   Chicken Wings (2 dozen) w/ celery and dressing  (Barb)

5. (Tracy)    Veggie beans and greens  (Tracy)

6. (Tracy's guest)   Robert Mondavi Cabernet or Merlot (1.5 L)  (Tracy's guest)

7. Any domestic or imported beer (12 pack)

8. (Therese)    Meat Lasagna (Therese)

9. (Judy)   Chili (beef or chicken) and Baguette French Bread (Judy)

10.  (Sue)    Any dessert for 10 people (pie, cake etc.)  (Sue)

11.  (Denise) Dessert  (Denise)

12.  (Colleen) Cannolis  (Colleen)

13. (Diane) To be determined   (Diane)

14.  (Claire)  To be determined   (Claire)

The location is near Victor, near Eastview Mall.  A few days before the event, I will send out an address and directions to those who have RSVPed.

Try something new.  Check out a foreign movie.  Travel to a different culture. Experience!

    Thanks everyone for coming. This was more fun than I expected. If others want to host, that would be great too. Perhaps we can have a potluck and movie combo every month. By the way, somebody has left a earring. Contact me if you would like to pick it up sometime

    • Alok

      Claire, can you pick up your earring sometime. I'm afraid I might lose it after a while. Your meetup profile doesn't let anybody message you. So, this is the only way I can contact you

      April 10, 2013

    • claire

      Hi aloke, thanks for your patience...The earring is not important...just discard it! Thanks, Claire

    I was really looking forward to attending this, but illness did me in. I love Bollywood movies, and I don't get to see many. I hope this event will repeat sometime

    Hi Aloke and new friends,
    Thanks so much for the lovely time! It was well worth getting lost, etc. lol. The movie was sweet and refreshing, and I appreciated learning something about another culture. Coincidentally, today on a college visit with my son, I met an Indian student who was studying to become a neuroscientist--guess what his name was.. . ? You guessed it, 'Raj' lol--he said in Northern Indian that's our equivalent of "John." We talked a little about Bollywood movies. So my knowledge helped me communicate with someone of a different culture.

    Hope to see everyone again soon!
    Heather

    It was interesting. The movie was romantic in a way that i have not seen in a long time. Movies made in the US don't contain dancing and music either. The dancing was surprisingly good. It was also cool to be able to ask our host questions about the movie.

    I'm so glad I was able to attend this meetup, even though I missed the movie. I am looking forward to attending another this month!

    I enjoyed meeting new members of the group as well as getting to know members I have met before. Everyone was so friendly, and the food was delicious. The host was so gracious to share his beautiful home to host the event. The movie was entertaining, too (I never knew what a "Bollywood" movie was until last night. I wish we had done this earlier in the day (like on a Saturday afternoon), so the host could have played the movie and we could have finished it in time to discuss it after the movie. Can anyone tell me how it ended? Kudos to Brian for all his hard work in putting this event together!!

    Tracy, your vegan dish sounds great but are you going to bring wine in that case? We need some wine.

    Diane, can you bring an appetizer or main course instead of dessert? We already have a lot of desserts and don't need any more

    April 2, 2013

  • diane f.

    I wish that Wegmans bakery would give me a discount or give me something free. but I'll might bring a dessert from Wegmans, or just baked a cake from a box mix.ok.

    April 2, 2013

  • colleen b.

    I can bring a main dish. You have a suggestion for one?

    April 2, 2013

    • Brian

      I marked you down for cannolis. That would be good. Where do you get yours from?

      April 2, 2013

  • tracy

    I can also bring braised escarole with white beans...sort of a vegan beans and greens. Guests loved it at a brunch I hosted.

    April 2, 2013

    • Brian

      Tracy, sounds great. Looking forward to try your vegan beans & greens

    Hi everyone, I am the mystery host of this event :-) I look forward to meeting all of you on Friday. Brian will send the directions in a couple of days. Since this is as much a pot-luck dinner as a movie night, please avoid a last minute cancellation/no-show because that makes the planning for food extremely difficult. For those of you who haven't made their choices yet, you can contact either Brian or me, and we will be happy to offer some suggestions. At this point, we have got enough desserts and beer/wine. But we need more volunteers for main course items.

    March 26, 2013

    • Brian

    March 23, 2013

      There is a driveway, and three steps to get in the front door. I don't think it is easily accessible.
