Things to Do this Week in Mumbai (23 to 28 May 2017)

Ladies Night Out is always a good idea. Especially if it includes free flavored beers! Sassy Spoon Bandra brings to you a live acoustic performance by Praveer Barot. You can also use your Gwenda Glocalista Card at this restaurant and get 15% discount on your bill (excluding alcohol).

Shop ’til you drop. And all for a good cause. At Rachel’s Summer Bazaar. 10 stalls of NGOs and other lifestyle brands for you to shop gifts for friends and family that you will be visiting during monsoon or just pick up a little something for yourself.

Watch a great German movie (“The Lives of Others”) on Sunday and enjoy a lunch from Savor Experiences. I highly recommend this movie and I think it is one of the few times this film gets screened in Mumbai. So don’t miss your chance to watch it. Details below.
