FNDC: 22nd August at BluJaz Cafe from 8PM

Postby morton » Fri, 22 Aug 2008 11:59 am

Folks, let's go back to BluJaz Cafe. We had a pretty good time there about 5 or 6 weeks ago, and the drink prices were quite reasonable (for Singapore) with jugs of Tiger going for $20. I'm not sure if the belly dancer will be there tonight, though the Blues-Jazz (go figure) band will be playing downstairs.

Interestingly, I noticed that the whole of Haji lane is closed to traffic from 10PM tonight until Sunday for a wedding! Must be some pretty popular (or influential) people getting married! I'm keen to see what will be going on there. Haji lane is behind BluJaz in the Arab sector, and there's Shisha as far as the lungs can breathe if that's what takes your fancy after a night's drinking.

Official address is: 11 Bali Lane, Historic Kampong Glam, 189848 http://blujaz-cafe.blogspot.com/

I think the easiest way to find it, or to tell a taxi driver, is Ophir Road between North Bridge Rd and Beach Rd.

Nearest MRT is Bugis. Walk down Rochor Rd against the traffic, turn left on North Bridge Rd (go past the big Gothic building - Parkview Square - on the right and Raffles Hospital on the left) cross Ophir Rd and turn right - it's about 150 meters down Ophir Rd on the left.

As usual, I've made a booking under FNDC on the balcony on the 2nd floor (1st floor being the ground floor and 2nd the one above that), which is where you'll find us unless it's raining, in which case we'll be inside on the 2nd floor. If you can't find us or need help finding the place, give me a call on 81369224.

a few of us will be there earlier (by 7pm)....and leaving early too...getting old..haha..

As for footwear, unless u are going home early, there is a good chance they might move..the clubbers are great with persuasion..be warned!

C u all there!
Guilty by Association....NICE!

Ok - regarding footwear - you might get away with no shoes at all at BluJaz (though I'd slap a pair of thongs on if I were you - flipflops if you're a colonial - slippers for locals).

If you plan on going out clubbing later on, then dress appropriately. Clubbing after FNDC is not part of FNDC but there's always a chance of the breakaway group (aka Life of Brian "Splitters" - bloody PFJ!) continuing on. From now on, they shall be know as SMCC or Saturday Morning Clubbing Club.

Had genuinely intended to join you all this week, but last night turned into a really late one, was doing well just to get through work today!
Have a good one

hey'all

Sorry for the poor effort on my part last night - I actually got to Blu Jazz early but ended up meeting a lady who ended up whisking me away before I could find you guys - anyway - schoolboy error on my part :-) - next time!
