Look what’s brewing @ Brewhaha

I’d heard of this new place and when I found a link on a blog, I decided to check out their website. The concept sounds really interested and it also shows how young people today are thinking up all sorts of innovative ways to interact and have fun.

I often wonder where people met prior to coffee shops. There are so many around today and they seem to be the default location for fixing up a meet or a rendezvous. Brewhaha takes the concept of a coffee place a little further by positioning it as a fun place to hang out. It’s not just the coffee, but a lot more.

joy.jpgFrom their website: “Enter BrewHaHa, a fun place where there’s always something to do. Here’s where we hope to build a community-built place for people to hang out together, have fun playing a variety of games and have a great culinary experience with our specialty sandwiches and desserts-to-die-for. So, if you’re a group of friends looking for something interesting to do, BrewHaHa is where you want to be.

It’s started by two youngsters Mansur and Sreeram “who had had too many boring Sundays in Bangalore with nothing to do and decided to do something about it”!

They hold quizzes, hip-hop workshops, musical events, board games, hobby classes etc. so do drop in next time you’re around the Koramanagala area.

    Anitha, you somehow manage to get to know these places. They are all in teh different & nice category. Just how do you manage to do that? This seems like a nice place too, should go check it out sometime.

    Nice write up. But I already read about this written by a friend and those were very well written as well.


    Ever since I have been a regular at this joint and I love those board games – particularly when you play with Mansur.

    I have just been reading these Bangalore metroblogs in the last few weeks. You (as in Anita) seem to have the most relevant and interesting blogs here. And I understand that you are one of the ‘senior’ writers here. Can you not set up some kind of norms for both the writers and the comments. Some of the contributors are so ‘reactive’ in their blogs and seem to ventilate their insecurities and hurts rather than writing on issues of relevance to Bangalore. It hurts me to see such amateurish writing about our city with which I identify so strongly..Your blogs have an international viewing and it is our collective responsibility to be mature in our writing..

    I do hope I do not again get just ‘reactions’ to this, and some serious thought is given to setting up protocols. Our family has just raised the fourth generation here and Bangalore is family for me..

    To continue with my previous comment, I posted this comment on one of the metrobloggers sites a few days back and there was no response to it.

    “I am a relatively new reader of Bangalore metro blogs and am a little surprised at how much antipathy goes into the comments on the blogs..

    …While I do appreciate the enthusiasm shown by the metrobloggers for Bangalore (and the hard work put in their spare time).. I would suggest that the objective of this blog should be to write constructively with positive overtones and humour about Bangalore..i think ‘approved’ authors of this blog have a responsibility in this direction..(a good example would be Rajesh Dangi’s photos which show a real ‘feel’ for Bangalore). Similarly I think the comments also need to be unprejudiced and broader…”

    The place is real neat. Once you start playing the board games you dont realise how quickly time flies. :) and thanks sukumar

    @ usha: appreciate your comments. we do try and write about the city with positive overtones. but it’s not always possible either, especially when one has a bad or untoward experience. i think that the spirit of the post should be taken in the right manner also. we’re all living in the city and sharing our daily experiences in this collaborative forum and though we do discuss posts, it’s not always possible to “police” everything. even with comments, we have noticed of late, the nastiness and the sometimes outright personally offensive overtones. that is something that is hard to tolerate. we are however open to criticism backed with facts/logic or feedback and suggestions. our attempts to bring about the positive aspects of the city will continue!

    @ dhivya: btw, really enjoyed reading your write-up too. very well written!

    Thanks for the response. I do agree with you that the comments deteriorate to the ‘personal’ and need to be more responsible. But I am not quite sure I understand what you mean by ‘the spirit of the post’… I would think the spirit of ventilating one’s hurts and insecurities is in the domain of personal blogs and not in that of Bangalore metroblogs. But at the same time, I would hold that the authors having been recognized as ‘responsible’ have a greater responsibility in this direction than the commenters..

    Yes Anita, I would have to agree with Usha that one should not vent in a blog like metblogs which is read for its wide coverage of Bangalore and its happenings. Writers should always have a great sense of responsibility when they are being watched so closely and should not bring in their frustration to the front. The nastiness and negative comments would always be there and that’s where senior writers should tackle them diplomatically. It is true that some readers have been nasty and abusive to your writers, but In.nt it the moderators job to step in and delete such comments. I remember having read some really abusive comments about one of your writers who was writing about Darshinis and she was abused for calling Vada as Vada and not Vade in the local language.

    To put it short, I love everyone of the posts and appreciate the contribution of your writers in bringing the best and worst of Bangalore. Keep up the good work.
