The table is booked for April's meeting at Spice Lounge in Petersfield.  Aperitifs will be at the Old Drum from 19:30 and then dinner will be at Spice Lounge at 20:30.

We need to know if members would like kulchi lamb to be ordered in advance.  If at least eight say Yes then it can be ordered, but we need to  know by Monday 18:00 if people want this - not everyone does. Please either use the feedback page on the web site or mention on your reply to the members' notice e-mail to let your preferences be known.  

I expect to be away so someone else will be organising on the night - have a great evening!

Madhuban - Tues 9th February

The table is booked - we're looking forward to our visit to sunny Liss and Madhuban on Tuesday 9th February.   Aperitifs will be at the Whistle Stop at about 19:30, and then we'll make the short journey across the railway line to Madhuban for dinner at 20:30.

This is our favourite venue for Curry Club meetings, it produces some truly great food, so we can expect a good turnout.  Members, please let me know  as soon as possible whether you expect to be there, either through the feedback page of the web site or in response to the members' notice e-mail.

Just a little note to members who sit waiting for their monthly e-mail: this notice on the blog page is always prepared first, and then I copy and paste it into an e-mail to send to you when I have time.  So you can often find out the details of the monthly meeting earlier if you check this page.  Looking forward to a great evening next Tuesday!

Wed 13th January - Paradise Balti

The table is booked - we start the New Year with a visit to Paradise Balti, on Wednesday 13th Jan.   Aperitifs will be at the Old Drum from about 19:30 and then dinner is over the road at the Paradise at 20:30.  

This was a very popular venue in August - our joint top attendance of the year - so please members, please let me know if you expect to be there, either using the feedback page on the web site or in response to the e-mail notice,  when I manage to send it out.  The process has been completely messed up by an upgrade to Microsoft Office 2016 and iCloud for my phone.  The Curry Club contact group has fallen down a crack between these two and I may have to rebuild it from scratch before sending out any more mails.  Or use MailChimp instead. 

I'll be asking for a volunteer to host the meeting on the night, but wish everyone a very happy and healthy New Year, and a most enjoyable evening on the 13th.

Malabon - venue for Tues 8th December

The table is booked!  The venue for our December meeting, to be held on Tuesday 8th, is Malabon Tandoori, Dragon Street, Petersfield.  Aperitifs will be at the Red Lion from about 19:30, and then dinner will be at the Malabon at 20:30.  

This will be our third visit of 2015 to Malabon, and  and we think it's a great choice for our pre-Christmas event.  Other restaurants that had two visits each are Spice Lounge, Paradise Balti, and Chilli NIghts in Haslemere.  Madhuban in Liss, the Bay Leaf and the Gurkha Durbar, both in Grayshott, had one visit each.   

This has been a difficult year for our curry club, with lower attendances due to Wednesday night clashes, and the fact that some members simply don't like to sit down for dinner as late as 20:30.  We've tried to address both of these.  We experimented with dinner at 19:30 but had little positive feedback.  The variation of day seems the more acceptable, and  we'll carry on this trial.  So we hope that as many as possible can make it for our last event of the year.  Please let me know whether you expect to make it, either in response to the members' notice e-mail or by using the feedback page on the web site.  

Christmas is coming, and our Amazon shop is able to take orders for lots of things that you might consider for presents for family, friends, or even yourselves.  Our categories include Indian food, Food & Drink 2015, Indian music, Books, Kindle, Electronics, Classical Music, PC Video Games, DVD, Kitchen & Home Appliances, Music, Software, Toys & Games.   Any purchases (except my family's) through our shop have the potential to give commission that will go into our Curry Club kitty, but they just changed the terms so if we don't use it, they can take away what we've earned to date.  If you plan to buy using Amazon, please use the links above!

Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Tuesday 8th!
