Bangalore Points & Miles Meetup on September 29, 2017

Earlier this week, we sought your inputs on organising the first Bangalore Points & Miles meetup. Given that there is a long weekend ahead of that week, about half of those who voted suggested they’d like to come in on Friday, September 29, after work. So, we booked up a place at the Smokehouse Deli on Lavelle Road to get this going. We are looking at starting at 6:30 pm and blocked off a long table to start.

The idea is to come around and grab a drink or a snack or a meal (buy your own!), meet other fellow travel enthusiasts and status/mile/point collectors and see how we can grow further as a community. I’d encourage you to bring your spouses and/or friends along, even if they don’t connect with the hobby. After all, it is all about introducing everyone to ways to travel as they’d never imagined before. If you’re a newbie, don’t worry, come along and do not worry about only geek talk floating around.

To sum up, here are the essential details:

  • Date: 29 September 2017
  • Time: 18:30 onwards
  • Address: Ground Floor, No. 52,53, Lavelle Rd, Shanthala Nagar, Ashok Nagar, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560001. Map

I’ve set up an RSVP form, and this would help me gauge the number of people coming, as well as make a giveaway happen as well. While everyone is invited to join, those who pre-register could win some cool prizes. 

I’m really looking forward to meeting everyone and put a face to all those names. So who all are coming?

Bangalore, see you on September 29, 2017!

  1. Hey Ajay,

    RSVP’d and looking forward!

    Just a suggestion, instead of a long table (or with it), ask them for a open section, like the outside/bar area. Easier to mingle and talk rather than seated on a table.

    • @Salman, intend to do that once in town. However not possible on the phone/email so will drop in in person and tell them to do so!
