Top 5 assumptions men have about ladies nights!

Ladies nights have a lot of ladies.

So most men assume that when such nights happen, it means that there will be a lot of  ladies there. Has to right? After all it is LADIES Night!!

 

Well, sorry to burst your little bubble. It actually turns out that a lot of men think just like you and chances are that it will turn out to be a sausage fest!

Most ladies will be single ladies.

Another popular assumptions most men carry are that women who come to such nights are usually single and ready to mingle. Well, you couldn’t be more wrong about this!

Ladies night
Most women are either taken, or just not interested. Even if they remotely were, they didn’t come there to get hit on by men for sure.

Plenty of fish to fry.

Most men seem to believe that since there will be a lot of women there, they can try their charm. Well, to be honest guys, if it didn’t work with one of them, chances are it won’t work with any of them!

ladies night
They are clearly not there to meet guys and be hit upon. So giving them space will be good for your ego.

Drunk much? I can take you home!

I hope you are not one of those men who think that the more a girl is drunk the easier she will be.

ladies night
Surprise surprise, if she is too drunk to even know how to walk, you my friend are going to be totally out of luck here.

Joy ride.  

Another assumption that is hugely popular is that women come dressed up for men. An important fact is that women get dressed up irrespective of this. Women just like to feel good about themselves at a ladies night and hence always ensure to step out in style.

ladies night
So men, don’t sweat about it.

Love for beer is something we mutually share. Rising above the stereotype, the beer drinkers are experimenting and so are the breweries. Overall production less than the large-scale corporate breweries, ‘Craft beer’ is gradually finding its patrons.

What is a Craft Brewery,  you ask?

(Img Courtesy- www.google.com)

One that produces small amounts of beer, much smaller than large-scale corporate breweries, is independently owned, generally characterised by their emphasis on quality, flavour and brewing technique.

Craft beer is BLISS!

Types Of Dancers You Will Find At Pubs

Every pub, irrespective of its theme or the kind of music being played will have these 7 varieties of dancers at any given time!

 

 

  • The Party Starters

These are not just the people who are the soul of every group but are also the life of the party. Brilliant dancers themselves these also get others grooving with them. These are the focal point with everyone dancing around them.

  • The Finger Pointers

Finger pointing is a stage for many in their dance journey. They experience it when the alcohol just kicks in and they want everyone around them to groove along. But, a good number of people are often stuck here and don’t venture out into moving anything other than their hands and point fingers are friends with gusto.

Fist Pumping

 

  • The Air Punchers

This is the group of wannabe dancers who are very conscious about the moves they make! They have one or both their first punching the air and tap their feet occasionally while fluttering around.

You would’ve already guessed it right – as they punch, their favourite expression is a ‘Yo!’

tumblr_n3o70eMJkY1slt0tyo1_500

 

  • The Impressionists

These people, mostly men, are impeccable dancers who have mastered classical moves or prominent moves of various artists in a mirrored dance studio! They just have one aim in mind – ‘to impress all the ladies.’

The dance floor is the stage and the impressionist is the once dancer in a reality show with just one judge – the lady he’s trying to impress!

“*Insert favourite swear word* hai woh!”

tumblr_nb1m7iYXUb1t1dqxlo1_400

 

  • Jumping Jack-ers

They are the happiest people in the set-up..Or maybe it’s just alcohol! The jumping jackers just jump as high as they can and cover every inch of the dance floor and act as the greatest motivation for people to join along!

The next day’s morning is a guilty one, though. *Beware*

 

  • Drunk BFFs

The ones that form a circle and behave as if they are the only people in the club and coordinate their signature move. Attention-seekers that they are, they peak out at regular intervals to ensure they are getting their due attention

 

  • Cloners

This is about 99% of the dancing population. These are stalkers and usually, unleash their ‘Killer’ moves which are mostly inspired from the remaining 1% who are familiar with the dance art

Being cosmopolitan in nature, Hyderabad is suitable for a person from any part of India. You will find colonies of Gujarati, Marwari, Sindhi and many other regional backgrounds in Hyderabad. People coming to Hyderabad feel at home in a very short time. Also, Hyderabadis are very helpful and you will often find any person ready to give you directions or help an old woman cross a road.

 

 

2) Wide Roads

Now this might be a weird one, but trust me this one goes a long way. Most of the city grew slowly giving the municipality a good enough time to build the roads in a better fashion. There might be lot of dust but wider roads makes the driving more comfortable.

 

 

3) Shoppers Stop

Street shopping or high-end shopping, the city’s got it all. And you just can’t escape Charminar bazaar for the pearls, if you step foot here. If you are a shopaholic, this is where you need to spending your money!

 

 

4) Nightlife

Hyderabadi traditions, in every sip

Every city has its own distinct traditions. India, with all its rich culture and heritage, has a plethora of such small-small traditions, which define a certain place.

Hyderabads-Charminar

One such city is Hyderabad, the cyber city of modern India, which despite all its technological advancements, hasn’t given up on its origins. It is amongst the rare places where buildings spanning skylines and forts from the distant past co-exist peacefully.

Ask any Hyderabadi, there are a certain number of things anyone coming to the city for the first time just can’t afford to miss. This list is topped by Irani Chai, which has a rich history. Hyderabadis and their Chai are a match made in heaven. Introduced by settlers from Persia during the last century when they came to Mumbai’s ports for better life and trade. And from Mumbai they migrated to Pune and then to Hyderabad.

Tea-making

The difference between another Indian Chai and Irani Chai is the way it is made. Tea leaves with water are boiled in a separate container, and milk in another. While serving, the milk is poured first, and then the tea leaves solution is infused into it. This way of serving can still be witnessed in places that still retain that exclusive Iranian touch. The unique taste remains the same, irrespective of time.

The speciality doesn’t end here, it extends to the serving quantity and style. In most places, it is served in white ceramic cups and saucers, and a standard 90 ml each, also giving it the name 90 ml chai.

Irani Chai, in most places, is served with one of the other city’s favourite, Osmania biscuits. Like everything else in this city, these biscuits have a rich tradition themselves. They were first baked on the demand of the last Nizam of Hyderabad, Mir Osman Ali Khan, who wanted a snack that balanced the right amount of sweetness and saltiness. From there on, its popularity surged, making it a city staple along with our beloved Irani chai.

The Irani chai that is served today is a very evolved version of the original one. It’s been adapted to fit our fast paced lifestyle. Originally, it is had in an unsweetened manner, with just tea leaves and water, no milk. This is enjoyed along with a large granule of sugar tucked behind the cheek and in small savoury sips.

The Old City has many Irani cafes, which are still preserving this trademark of Hyderabad. If you are planning a trip to the City to Nawabs, visiting one of these should be on your must-do list.
