Where’s the Party Tonight?

Most of us have loved this song though we might not have liked the movie with equal fervour. Whenever there’s a party lined up, the first phrase that pops in my mind is the title – ‘Where’s the Party Tonight?’ There are house parties and then there are house parties. Since all of us are slogging the whole day working, be it household chores or our jobs, it is difficult to arrange a house party on a weekday.

So what do you do when you crave for a party with superb friends on a weekday (or even on a weekend)? You, like me, would look for places to party in Kolkata. The perception even ten years back among people was doubt about any nightlife in Kolkata. Which was partly true, Kolkata wasn’t too vibrant at night for reasons unknown. But if you search on Askme dot com now, in 2015, there is no dearth of discotheques in Kolkata and places to party.

Since I’ve moved into Kolkata just a few months ago, I’ve been searching for places to party when there’s no energy left to arrange house parties for large number of guests. There are easier options obviously – browse your phone or laptop, place your choices on Askme dot com and bingo! They offer so many choices that you’re spoilt and dazed for a moment. Try to filter according to your preferences and you’ll land up into a wonderful lounge or banquet for an amazing party with friends or family.

My preferences usually lie with Park Street, even to the extent that I’m a little biased towards the area. There are the oldest and best pubs and restaurants in Kolkata, with splendid food and much choice for beverages. If you search well, there are many new places which are creating a buzz in Saltlake, Rajarhat, Kasba, Gariahat and other vibrant areas of Kolkata. In a gist, you don’t need to worry about the nightlife in Kolkata now, if you know where to look at, you’ll find everything that you need, at your convenience and right near your doorstep. Kolkata is a city of 14 million people and a vast area, so rest assured, you’ll find hundreds of party places in Kolkata and gather beautiful memories with your friends.

Happy Partying!

Stay, Ask and Order!

Can you recall the last time you had ordered food while surfing the internet? Isn’t it only a few days back when you decided to pick some takeaway food on your way back from office? It happens with all of us these days. Stress is gradually consuming our days, nights and peace of mind. And there are times when we relent to our circumstances and the all-encompassing pressure of multitasking.

I’ve been through days when I’ve been writing for an assignment throughout the day, with intermittent coffee and munch breaks. Later in the evening after I submit, my psyche goes on a toss and I tend to slump down. Coincidentally, if my better half is late from office the same day, we are left with no choice but to order food online or pick up a takeaway in Kolkata or call for home delivery. One of these days while browsing through various websites to order, I found Askme dot com.

The inquisitive me landed on their plush yet simple website andcruised through the home delivery page. I punched in my preferred area within Kolkata and the type of food I wanted. The page offered me a range of choices to spoil, with their menus, ratings, photos and reviews. The search takes a few seconds, so does the order. Askme has a very easy contact number to memorise in case you want to rest your eyes and step away from the computer. Dial their number and describe your preference for them to suggest and place the order for home delivery in Kolkata.

So, the next time hunger consumes you and leaves no time for cooking or even assembling food particles together in a dish, pick up your phone, dial Askme’s number and order your choice of fodder. I’ve been sceptical to order food online in Kolkata but Askme has provided an easy-peasy portal for everyone to explore the options, choose the most relevant and wanted ones and just click.

Remember, your food is just a click or call away from you. Celebrate any occasion, even your tiredness or a stressful day with something exotic or just your favourite pizza.
