A good friend from Dallas (Ruben) was in town this week on business and I was up for entertaining an out of town guest so it was a week of dinners, drinks and socializing. Starting with the last night out for Upaasna (or Oops as we call her). She's been in HYD for several months and it's time for her to return to New York....and while we'll miss her, we definitely don't treat that final week as a "funeral" for our soon-to-depart friend...we treat the final days more like an Irish wake...complete with many, many dinners and many, many drinks. For Oops last night out we made the trip to BBQ Nation for some tasty snacks then off to VJ's newly rennovated penthouse for his birthday party. VJ has turned this top room in his family's office building into a party room and it was indeed a party with the standard cast of characters. On Ruben's last night in Hyderabad, I drug him to F Bar to meet Nick and Bec, then the Sheraton to hear Ania and Maria sing their songs. Good to have another friend from the US make the trip to India!
